Today's UPFRONT features award-winning actor, writer and director Edward Norton, ASPIRE TV's Butter + Brown and TV star and funny man Palmer Williams Jr. 

ASPIRE TV'S popular cooking duo Butter + Brown are back and talked to UPFRONT about their third season. We also discussed recipes for the holidays and working alongside show producers---Issa Rae and G. Garvin. 

TV actor, playwright and all around funny man Palmer Williams Jr stopped by to chat about his newest theatrical production, FOR THE LOVE OF...debuting November 8-10 at Decatur's Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center. The show features a cadre of talent including Tony Hightower, Paula Campbell, Greg Kirkland and more. Palmer is best known for his character 'Floyd Stanley Jackson' from the hilarious Tyler Perry sitcom House of Payne

Closing out the show is my one-on-one conversation with award-winning actor and film icon Edward Norton about his new film Motherless Brooklyn. It features Norton as a lonely private detective afflicted with Tourette's syndrome who tries to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend. Motherless Brooklyn also stars Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Michael K. Williams. The https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST5NgujQiMk">soundtrack also features the music of jazz icon Wynton Marsalis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fru8IkuDp_k">Motherless Brooklyn is in theaters now.
