Another great report on Sean’s appearance at the Texas Film Festival appears over at Aint-it-cool-news Really interesting stuff there, Sean Astin is certainly one to watch as he carries his Sam-nature over into real life.

Meanwhile in Portland, Oregon the gardening/literacy project are delighted to announce that have received official confirmation that Sean Astin will be making every effort to attend Project Elanor on April 6, 2003 at the Rockwood branch of the Multnomah County Library, Portland, Oregon. Previously, Mr. Astin had generously offered his name and support and indicated his interest in attending, but we can now confirm that, barring any last-minute changes of plan, he will be present for the building and dedication of the children’s reading garden he inspired with his own dedication to community service.
