I was aware of Ed Douglas years before I actually met the man in 2011 at a junket in New York. He’s been writing about film for over a decade now and, as someone who is online a lot, I had read much of his work. I only agreed with him about half the time, but he always had something interesting to say.
But after I finally met him (being very new to this game myself) it seemed like I never stopped seeing him around. All over the world, in fact. And he’s a genuinely good guy who has made every trip I’ve been on with him that much better. Brad (Mr. Disgusting) has known him much longer and I know that he considers Ed a close colleague and friend and respects him greatly.
Ed is aslo fighting Leukemia. He fell ill last week in Vegas covering CinemaCon and is now in a hospital in Ohio near his family getting treatment. He doesn’t have health insurance and his month-plus hospital stay is sure to be expensive. So if you have a few extra bucks, please do something good and help him out HERE. Ed didn’t set this up, he’s not asking for it personally – but his friends would greatly appreciate it if you contributed. Also, the charity currently has a 50K goal. DO NOT stop there if you can – his treatment is sure to be much more expensive than that.
