Set against the antebellum South, this drama follows the story of Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. After witnessing countless atrocities against fellow slaves, Nat devises a plan to lead his people to freedom.
“The world sends people your way. Ryan came to me through a temp agency.
Andy was transferred here… no idea where Creed came from. The point is
you just have to play with the cards you’re dealt. Jim, that guy is an
Ace. Dwight is my King up my sleeve. Phyllis is my old maid. Oscar is my
Queen. That’s easy. Give me a hard one. That’s what Oscar said. Toby is
the instruction card you throw away. Pam is a solid seven. And yeah,
you know what? Ryan is probably like a two, but sometimes twos can be
wild. So watch out. And I am obviously the Joker."
We later learned that the film will be called “The Birth of a Nation” (I can only guess as a reaction/response to D.W. Griffith’s incendiary 1915 film of the same title). And what makes the project’s completion even more likely is that it was the recipient of a fellowship with the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program last year, and has now drawn the attachment of production companies Phantom Four, Mandalay Pictures, Tiny Giant Prods., Follow Through Prods., Infinity Entertainment and Creative Wealth Media Finance.
Nate Parker is also producing via his Bron Entertainment shingle, along with Aaron L. Gilbert, Kevin Turen, Jason Michael Berman and Preston Holmes.
David Goyer is also among the film’s executive producers.
We can now add that Aja Naomi King (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Aunjanue Ellis, Colman Domingo, Dwight Henry, Roger Guenveur Smith, Gabrielle Union and Arnie Hammer have all joined the film’s cast. No word yet on what roles each actor will play, but I’m certainly looking forward to finding out!
Parker, as we already know, will play Nat Turner. He'l also direct the film from his own script with shooting now set to begin next month, in Savannah, Ga.[source]

(Firstly sorry for posting so late, I got busy :( and secondly sorry if some seem similar I just couldn’t find other ways for them to react XD So i really tried my best to make them all different. PS. They’re talking to themselves XD Gifs not mine/found them on google/credit to the original owners.)
Negan-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d have the reflex to always answer you immediately whether you say something weird or not. However, he’d then realize something off and shift to your side to look at you super closely. He’d then realize his mistake and start laughing to himself. “Fucking shit…Y/N…you’re at it again…talking in your sleep…Here I thought you wanted to keep me company…whatever that doesn’t mean I can’t hug you…”
Daryl-When he hears you sleep talking, at first he wouldn’t be too sure of what was happening. He’d wondered if you were awake and turn to your side of the bed to wave his hand in front of you and spend quite some time inspect you. When he’d realize you were asleep, he’d end up smiling and tuck you in even more. "Seriously, Y/N…what kind of grown up talks to themselves in their sleep…you’re a weird one…but I still love you…”
Rick-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually wake up just to listen to whatever you have to say.

Carl-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually be asleep as well. You would usually be both sleep talking to one another and it seemed to always happen when one of you start it.

Eugene-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d get startled and try to figure what was going on. He’d turn to you but still kept his eyes shut and just start to ramble along with you when your sleep talk just seems natural. However, once it gets weird he’d then just stop and awkwardly just wrap his arm around you. “I should’ve guessed you were asleep…man i’m such weirdo thinking you were talking to me at this hour…”
Ron-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d be able smile and laugh. To hear you, it was just another reason for him to feel a little happier and he’d end up whispering nice things about you in hopes you’d end up waking up as well. “I like you Y/N…I like the way you smile at me…the way you look at me…and I like everything else about you…”
Jesus-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d wake up and start to chuckle. He’d get closer to hear you and hug you from behind resting his head on you and sleepily answer back to you only to wake you up. “Yeah…I like you…I like you a lot actually…I mean there’s a reason we’re together…so yeah…oh you’re awake now!”
Dwight-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d slowly wake up smiling and jokingly cup your face as if to talk to you.

Morgan-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d genuinely think you were awake talking to him and casually just start to answer.

Aaron-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d start to laugh and wouldn’t be able to stop. Eventually it would end up waking you frustrated and him grabbing you just for a hug.

Gabriel-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d usually seem to wake up whenever you were saying dirty things. He’d get startled and turn away from you, closing his eyes.

The Wolf-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d wake up in surprise and get up from the bed. He’d go to your side and look at you and start laughing when he realizes you were truly asleep. “What is this?! What kind of person sleeps and talks at the same time! You’re really weird Y/N…”
Noah-When he hears you sleep talking, he’d get a little worried thinking you had a fever or something and would always end up getting up checking your temperature.

tonight is Native American Heritage Night at Staples Center, so in honor of that i just sorta threw this post together right before i had to leave for that game. this is mostly stuff i knew off the top of my head tho so if any of y’all know anything else, please feel free to add it! edit: check out the second post i made on this subject!
there are currently 10 native american players in the nhl; 6 play in the western conference, only 4 play in the east
the players include Jordan Nolan and Dwight King (LAK), Kyle Chipchura (ARI), Rene Bourque (COL), Micheal Ferland (CGY), Jordin Tootoo (CHI), Vernon Fiddler (NJD), Carey Price (MTL), T.J. Oshie (WSH), and Cody McCormick (BUF)
most of the players are either Metis or Ojibwe: Bourque, Chipchura, Fiddler, & King: Metis Ferland: Cree McCormick: Oneida & Chippewa/Ojibwe Nolan: Ojibwe & Maliseet Oshie: Anishinaabe/Ojibwe Price: Ulkatcho First Nation
Oshie is the only American-born native out of the 10. all the rest are Canadian natives
Price and Oshie are the only 2 to play for their respective countries at the Olympics, while Chipchura, Tootoo, and Bourque have played internationally in other competitions
Tootoo having to play with the Blackhawks is cruel and unusual punishment of the worst sort
Fiddler shares a birthday with me (and Steve Yzerman)
Oshie’s name in the Ojibwe language is “Keeway Gaaboo,” which means “coming home”
Tootoo’s name in Inuktitut is written as ᔪᐊᑕᓐ ᑐᑐ and his middle name, Kudluk, means “thunder”
Ferland, Price, King, and Nolan are the only players who haven’t played for multiple NHL teams
Nolan and King are the only two Stanley Cup champions out of the 10 while Fiddler and Chipchura were Calder Cup champions (in 2004 and 2007 respectively)
Jordan Nolan after both Stanley Cup victories:
also, to any other native nhl/hockey fans out there: reblog this and tag what tribe(s) you are; i wanna see how many of us there are and how many different cultures we represent!
