In 1989, when Scott Bakula was a struggling actor and was cast in the hit series Quantum Leap – which ran for five seasons – he imagined he had starred in the biggest show of his career. In 2001, along came his role as Captain Archer in Star Trek: Enterprise which gave him another burst of fame. Now at 63, Bakula is once again enjoying a third chapter of success in NCIS: New Orleans, in which he plays NCIS boss Dwayne Pride.
Melissa McBride still can't believe her luck as she looks at a wall full of photos of cast members from The Walking Dead who are no longer on the show. "It's humbling to see those faces and know Carol is not up there yet," says the 52-year-old actor who plays battered housewife-turned-warrior Carol Peletier in the drama series.
Anne Heche admits when she first read the script for the series The Brave, she was surprised. "I read the first couple of pages and went, 'Wait, what?' We can have an agency on the ground in Washington DC communicating 5000 miles away from our troops telling them who to shoot and what the scope of danger is?" she recalls. "That's when I knew I was in."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
