ELIZABETH, N.J., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If ever there were a television role made for an actor, and one actor only, it would have to be washed-up baseball announcer Jim Brockmire. The actor in question? Hank Azaria, who inhabits the title character in the IFC comedy series Brockmire, which debuted earlier this month—and has already been green-lit for a second season.
Azaria sat down with EDGE writer Gerry Strauss for the six-page cover story of the magazine's spring Recent Future issue.
"He's a real guy," says Azaria, who grew up listening to Mets announcers as a boy in Queens. "I like to find strange, vocal personages that just sound funny to me…the game I like to play is 'Now let's fill that person in and make him real.'"
The Azaria Q&A highlights the editorial lineup for EDGE, which is a publication of Elizabeth, New Jersey-based Trinitas Regional Medical Center. The magazine publishes five times per year and reaches 300,000 readers in the Central New Jersey area.
The Recent Future theme covers a number of topics that are changing before our eyes, including the farm-to-table movement, domestic robots, and post-recession retirement strategies. For anyone wondering how small ideas end up having huge, culture-changing consequences, "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?" explores the nature of inventions and inventors…and ponders the future impact of 3D printers.
The magazine's Healthy Edge health and wellness section focuses on the emerging field of "telehealth" and the use of high-tech training mannequins, as well as breaking news on early detection for autism and the discovery of a "new" 79th organ in the human body. And fitness diva Jillian Michaels discusses the advantages of app-based training on the 5 Minutes with… sign-off page.
