Many are getting excited as “Left Behind” is fast approaching theaters based on the best-selling books by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye on Oct. 3. The film stars Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Jordan Sparks, and Lea Thompson, whose characters are caught in the Rapture.

People are disappearing, and pilot Ray Steele (Cage) is working to calm his passengers asking Cameron “Buck” Williams (Murray) reporter to co-pilot the plane as it runs out of fuel.

On the plane is Shasta Carvell, played by Jordan Sparks, her child vanishes like many others on the way to London.

Pretty intense, right?

“When you read the Bible and you take those things to be truth,” said Sparks, who read the books as a kid. “It is definitely something you can think about and go ‘wow’ that could actually happen.”

19 American luminaries of the baby boom years (1946-1964) share their personal stories and achievements in the inspiring documentary, The Boomer List.

Part of the American Masters series on PBS, The Boomer List invites viewers into the lives of a generation that were present during poignant moments of American history and culture.

Filmmaker and director of the documentary, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, wanted a film that “captures the boomer generation’s dynamic spirit.”

Some of the subjects include: Deepak Chopra, Eve Ensler, Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Tan, Erin Brokovich, Steve Wozniak, Julieanna Richardson, Tommy Hilfiger, and many more.

They openly discuss key topics that impacted their lives, and how they defined the American dream for themselves.

Stunning black and white portraits of the individuals featured are interspersed throughout the documentary, along with other exceptional baby boomers who were not interviewed.

The Boomer List is a celebration of this generation’s impact on American culture,” says Michael Kantor, executive producer of American Masters. “It is impossible to encapsulate in just a few words, but thanks to the talent both on camera and behind the lens, this remarkable film offers an incredible chorus of voices that somehow captures the zeitgeist of this era.”

American Masters: The Boomer List, premieres nationwide Tuesday, September 23, 9-10:30 p.m. on PBS (check local listings).

Tim Tebow

Doesn’t look like Tim Tebow will be returning to the NFL anytime soon. ABC released a press releasing stating that starting Monday, September 15th Tebow will launch the program’s “Motivate Me Monday” series. The program will highlight amazing people and their inspirational stories of triumph and overcome.

Tebow last appeared on GMA in January to support coverage of Superbowl XLVIII. ABC has made several additions recently to the hosting line up – Michael Strahan, former NY Giants football player, as a part-time correspondent and Tony Reali, a successful journalist and host, as their social media contributor both in April.

Tebow heads the Tim Tebow Foundation which brings faith, hope and faith to those in need – so it seems very fitting that he would be the perfect candidate to empower and spread motivation.
