Madonna Calls “Susan” Co-Star Mark Blum “A Remarkable Human Being,” Rosanna Arquette Recalls “Good and Kind Person”


Doesn’t 1985 seem like ten minutes ago? Rosanna Arquette and Madonna co-starred with Mark Blum in “Desperately Seeking Susan,” directed by Susan Seidelman. Now the two actresses have posted memorial tweets to Blum, who died today from coronavirus. I think it’s the nicest thing Madonna has ever said about anyone, ever, including Basquiat and Haring. Wow. A nice tribute.
