A new documentary film agrees that soul food tastes good, but asks is it worth it?
"The Hunger Games" movie opened over the weekend, earning $153 million at the box office and setting an opening record for Lions Gate. Movie goers, and especially those who read Suzanne Collins' 2008 novel, thought they were watching the fictional world of Panem, but what they were really seeing was scenery from the western part of North Carolina.
A native of New Orleans, Bryan Batt landed the role of Art Director Salvatore Romano on AMC’s "Mad Men" in 2007. He moved from New Orleans to New York right out of college to be an actor and starred on Broadway and off, more recently guest starring on "Law and Order" and "Ugly Betty." Batt made it through three seasons of "Mad Men" before his character was fired for rejecting the sexual advances of Lee Garner Jr., son of a Lucky Strike exec, a huge client for the agency. Now, Batt spends his days traveling between New York, New Orleans and Los Angeles. While in New Orleans, he can usually be found at his Magazine Street home décor shop, Hazelnut. Batt recently talked to us about "Mad Men," his favorite cocktail and why he loves living in the South.
