12.19.12: Hello everyone. It's been some time since my last blog entry. I hope this finds you well. To update you: I'll be starting a new film, a romantic comedy called FINDING NORMAL starring Candace Cameron (IMDB link) (FULL HOUSE and MAKE IT OR BREAK IT) and me in January. Be sure to look out for the thriller DARK SKIES in February and I'll be seen in the season two premiere of THE CLIENT LIST in 2013. Personally, my family is thriving. My son is looking forward to seeing Grandma for Christmas in Spokane, WA. Maybe he'll learn to ski and most certainly there will be some sledding. My hope is that wherever your holiday season takes you and whatever you do, you find happiness and joy.
10.08.12: Hi everyone, I want to let you know how things are going here in La La Land. I recently shot two independent films. The first is DARK SKIES (IMDB) starring Keri Russell (IMDB). It's a thriller from the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. I wrapped ROAD TRIP just this last Friday. It's also a thriller. It stars Lori Laughlin (IMDB) as an escaped and dangerous mental patient and I'm the detective trying to track her down. It was a lot of fun. As always, I'll let you know when and where you can see them.
I also want to let you know about an event coming up benefitting my favorite non-profit organization, WriteGirl. It's the Bold Ink Awards (go to website). It takes place at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica on November 5th at 7pm. Tickets are on sale here. I'll be there celebrating outstanding creative women writers in the entertainment industry including:
Melissa Rosenberg (Screenwriter/Producer, Twilight series, Dexter)
Lisa Cholodenko (Screenwriter/Director, The Kids Are All Right)
Zoe Kazan (Playwright/Screenwriter, Ruby Sparks)
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Authors of the Beautiful Creatures series)
Also, a big thank you to those of you who supported the WriteGirl poetry drive this Summer. I really appreciate it!
I hope to see you at all these events!! And I hope this finds you all well and thriving. Thanks for your support.
06.18.12: Friends, For years I have supported a fantastic non-profit organization in Los Angeles called WriteGirl. They help teenage girls learn creative writing through workshops and one-on-one mentoring. Maybe one of these girls will eventually become a screenwriter/director and hire me to star in her film?
This Saturday, June 23rd, I will be on stage reading the WriteGirl teens work at their season-end gala event. It's a fun event open for all. I hope to see you there! If not, please consider buying a poem from a WriteGirl here
Hope to see you there!
SCREENING IN NYC
I can hardly believe it. “The Art of Getting Over it,” the short film Dan Gauthier (ex-Kevin) and I shot —with a humbling number of friends and family members, including my dad as my character’s dad — screened March 6th at the 5th NYC Audience Short Film Festival. People seemed to really like it. “ABC Soaps In Depth” said my dad’s “haunting performance takes the cake.” How great is that?
The Wes Craven project was a great time. He’s the nicest man you’d ever hope to meet — kind of a surprise for the guy responsible for “A Nightmare on Elm Street” — and a talented director to boot.
Now I’m back home at One Life to Live, where we’re spinning some stories in the months ahead that I think you’ll love.
Once again, my Internet spy tells me the message boards have me leaving the show in August. Not going to happen. I’ve got a great job, with a great cast, and great fans. What more could a guy need?
NEW FILM PROJECT
Director Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Music of the Heart, Scream, and lots more) has kindly cast me in his latest production 25/8. We’re shooting for six weeks in Connecticut, and I’m looking forward to working with such a prolific director. He really knows what he’s doing.
One Life to Live has been great about shuffling my schedule around, so I won’t be missing for all that time.
I’ll let you know how it all goes.
THAT'S A WRAP
The project is a real family affair. My father, uncle, cousin, and best friend’s brother all appear, and even more friends and family worked behind the scenes. Director Dan Gauthier (formerly Kevin Buchanan and my great friend) cast his wife Lisa in a part, too.
The only downside was the loss of Hillary B. Smith's (Nora Hanen) contribution when she got stuck on the East Coast in the airline meltdown.
Now the editing process begins, and I sure hope you’ll like the end product.
THE BIG WEEK
This is the big week! On Wednesday, September 26, ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money” hits the airwaves. I haven’t seen the finished product yet, so we’ll be experiencing it for the first time together. I hope you like it.
Tomorrow’s the big day! I’m excited to see you at the One Life to Live Fan Club event. It should be a good time.
