Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson talk about the making of Deepwater Horizon

  • Dylan O'Brien, left, and Mark Wahlberg in Deepwater Horizon, which was filmed in New Orleans and opens here Sept. 30.

"Make sure you get it right."

Sporting a simple black T-shirt, with waves of long brown hair cascading from his Wahlburgers-branded baseball cap, actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, fresh from his 6:30 a.m. tee time, recounts his local golf buddies' initial reaction to Deepwater Horizon: A certain skepticism, born of their belief in the story's importance.

The film, opening in theaters Friday, is a tense, often terrifying depiction of the blowout, explosion, and subsequent fire aboard the offshore oil-drilling rig on April 20, 2010, killing 11, injuring 17, and leading to the largest oil spill in U.S. history. It's Deepwater Horizon's focus on "the human tragedy" that motivated Wahlberg, who plays the rig's chief electronics technician, Mike Williams, to bring the project to fruition.

"When I realized that 11 people lost their lives, I was a bit surprised that there wasn't enough attention put on that," Wahlberg says, echoing co-stars Kate Hudson and Kurt Russell and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. In their recollections, it was the potential ecological consequences of the BP oil discharge, and not the disaster that started it, which broke through to the national consciousness in the spring and summer of 2010.

WWL-TV/Advocate poll very bad news for Vitter

Posted By on Mon, Sep 28, 2015 at 9:08 AM

Sen. David Vitter has lost more than a third of his support since April, according to the latest independent statewide poll in the governor’s race. He is tied for the primary lead with Democrat John Bel Edwards, but he loses trails in runoff match-ups against all of his opponents in the WWL-TV-Advocate survey. - CREATIVE COMMONS/DEREK BRIDGES
  • CREATIVE COMMONS/DEREK BRIDGES
  • Sen. David Vitter has lost more than a third of his support since April, according to the latest independent statewide poll in the governor’s race. He is tied for the primary lead with Democrat John Bel Edwards, but he loses trails in runoff match-ups against all of his opponents in the WWL-TV-Advocate survey.



The first independent statewide survey since qualifying closed in the governor’s race shows U.S. Sen. David Vitter in trouble, despite the fact that he co-leads the field with Democrat state Rep. John Bel Edwards. The survey was taken by Clarus Research Group of Washington, D.C., for WWL-TV and The Advocate.

Here are the survey’s statewide results:
• John Bel Edwards 24%
• David Vitter 24%
• Scott Angelle 15%
• Jay Dardenne 14%
Five other candidates get 1% each, and “undecided” is at 18%. Vitter, Angelle and Dardenne are Republicans. Edwards is the only major Democrat.

How can Vitter be in trouble if he’s co-leading the poll?

Because since last April he has fallen from a high of 38% in a poll by Southern Media and Opinion Research (SMOR) — and being all alone atop the field — to just 24% (and tied for the lead with Edwards) in the Clarus poll. That’s a loss of more than one-third of his support since April.

Mayfield’s pride, as much as his mistakes, hurting him

Posted By on Thu, May 21, 2015 at 10:24 AM

Pride goeth before a fall. If Irvin Mayfield can’t summon the strength to apologize, his pride will do him far greater harm than his mistakes as a library foundation board member. - COURTESY BASIN STREET RECORDS
  • COURTESY BASIN STREET RECORDS
  • Pride goeth before a fall. If Irvin Mayfield can’t summon the strength to apologize, his pride will do him far greater harm than his mistakes as a library foundation board member.

What’s keeping Irvin Mayfield from coming clean about his role in the diversion of at least $863,000 in New Orleans Public Library Foundation funds to his New Orleans Jazz Orchestra in 2011-12? Is he afraid? Is he hiding something?

I know Mayfield, not nearly as well as his friends but probably better than many others in the community, and I suspect the answer is much simpler than suggested above: It is mere pride.

Anyone who has dealt with Mayfield knows that behind his magnetic charm — and the young Grammy winner oozes charm — is an outsized ego. Like all self-promoters, especially those who have enjoyed huge success — Mayfield does not suffer from a lack of self-esteem. It takes enormous self-confidence, and of course talent, to do what Mayfield does on stage and in the nonprofit sector. But success often brings a mountain-sized dose of pride, which is probably what’s stopping Mayfield from admitting his mistakes and, more importantly, apologizing for them.

“That will never happen,” another prominent jazz musician (also a Grammy winner) recently told my wife, Gambit publisher Margo DuBos. Both were lamenting Mayfield’s recent troubles, and Margo suggested that Mayfield could do a lot to resolve the situation by simply apologizing. The fellow Grammy winner, who knows Mayfield well, has no doubt that Mayfield’s misplaced pride won’t allow him to do that.
