    Ms. Timmons:

    THANKS so very much for putting the word about Emile Hirsch’s OTHER exploits out there for the folks to read and enjoy :)

    ICE to read about him doing good works for others, rather than just seeing coverage of his film work, and social outings / activities … Emile believes in taking advantage of all the opportunities that are coming his way as a result of the movie-work he has done and the public’s noticing (& appreciating) him.
