It’s impossible to overstate just how much Broadway’s Hamilton changed Daveed Diggs’s life. The Oakland, California, native’s experimental rap trio, Clipping, had definitely enjoyed a niche following, but thanks to his Tony-winning dual turn as Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette, Diggs was suddenly backstage with Beyoncé, performing at the White House, and meeting his childhood idol, MC Hammer (“We occasionally text,” Diggs says proudly).
It all started with a stiletto. Specifically, a red pump, digging into Leonardo DiCaprio’s face in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 Oscar-nominated opus, The Wolf of Wall Street. In the pivotal scene, DiCaprio’s notorious New York stockbroker, Jordan Belfort, crawls across the carpet toward his wife, Naomi, groveling for forgiveness for his infidelity. But Naomi—played to power sex-kitten perfection by Margot Robbie—is having none of it.
In American Made—the story of a real-life Louisiana pilot, Barry Seal (Tom Cruise), from his days flying for TWA to trafficking cocaine for a Colombian cartel to serving as an informant for the DEA in the mid-’80s—34-year-old actress Sarah Wright plays Seal’s beautiful better half, Lucy. But rest assured: This is no ordinary wife role.
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".
