Grams looked really glamorous in her early career!

Wow...that was absolutely fascinating. I'd love to know more about MBP, just from reading this interview. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait until my daughter gets home and I can show it to her, too.

However, even more interesting is that she was nominated for a Tony award in 1985 for her performance in The King and I!
Yes, and did you see she did The King and I with Yul Brenner? So cool.
I love that interview, JRV. It was so interesting to hear about her background. Reading about all of this, I couldn't help but think that DC must have been like a stop at dullsville for her.

The Dreamers with Michael Pitt (aka. Henry). Opens on Feb. 6.
Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights with Mika Boorem (aka. Harley). Opens on Feb. 27.

White Chicks with Busy Phillips. Opens July 23.
BTW, has anyone else seen the posters for Mandy Moore's first daughter-esque film? God I can't stand Mandy Moore.

However, I respect your hate for MM, PCF. If I based what I know of her strictly from movies and TV Appeareances, I might feel the same way. Hee.

Anyway, I saw a preview of her 1st daughter flick last week. Did nothing for me, but my sister seemed amused by it.
Topic? I will be very curious as to how Katie's FD gets reviewed and does at the box office. I just think its got alot more going against it then it has going for it. Time will tell.

Also, I can't remember if anyone mentioned this yet or not, but John Finn is in a new show called Cold Case. I haven't seen it, so I don't have an opinion, but I've seen some mixed reviews. There's a little video of an interview with John Finn on this site, and it was neat to see him as himself. I always thought he did a great job in the very small role he had as Pacey's dad, especially since the character was written rather unevenly. I have a bit of a soft spot for John Finn since he was also on one of my other favorite shows, NYPD Blue, and because he's Pacey's dad. He played two different roles on NYPD Blue, but I remember him best as Lt. Shannon.
PCF, I loved A Walk to Remember. <G> I never saw MM on MTV or in anything except that movie, but I liked her and even like some of her songs. Eeek! Did I just say that? hehe I actually haven't heard anything about her new movie at all, but I haven't been looking for it either.

I think I am boycotting Chasing Liberty. I am not all that keyed up about seeing MM in this. Besides I have way to much loyalty to DC. It would be different if it was The Beek but that is a whole other story.

I soo want Chasing Liberty to bomb. Nothing against Mandy Moore (at least she's not as stuck up or full of herself like any of them teeny bopper flavors of the month), but like you, katty, gotta support the DC alumni. Although First Dtr looks totally cheesy on paper, I'm hoping KH finally gets a movie hit (that she's starring in). 'Sorry, but Abandon blew.

Pieces of April rocked the casbah. In every sense...it does the whole 'family drama' thing without subjecting the audience to too much messy soap-opera-esque melodrama. In fact we get an amazing sense of a family dynamic without having to see the whole family together at all. Katie is phenomenal and understated- her humour shines (i.e. the scene where she tries to 'explain' thanksgiving to a non english-speaking Korean family) very funny. very true and particularly for anyone whose been through a close to home cancer experience- very touching. Great film all around. Katie is already getting good press from the indie scene (who would have thought the indie scene would embrace a former "Dawson Dweeb" to quote VH1!)
NOW we need to get Joshua on board the succesfull career train post DC. He can do it. You know it. I know it. now everyone else needs to know it.

the rebelious daughter who still wants/needs some approval, the wanting to please middle child but tends to be overlooked, and the youngest daughter who needs to take control and be number 1 in the family.
OMG, the authors of this must have met my family! <G>

...This last week have watched 3 DC actors in tonnes of movies, most were on British TV, two were rented from a small Blockbuster store in London. It did kinda impress me that the odds were against this happening/and or/it shows the DC cast have infiltrated the mainstream big(ish) time......
Wonder Boys: Great movie, KH is perfect for the role. Enuff said
Abandon: KH is great, but on the whole, the rest of the cast suck.Watchable for the KH element. Benjiman Bratt and Fred Ward truly suck. Interesting camera shots.
The Lamarie Project:- had no idea it was going to be so good.Don't get me wrong but at times it was a little like "The Office" in its "mockumentry" style acting-which I guess is a compliment. A quality movie. JJ is really rather good in his role as "The Barman", up until his last scene where he has to eye up the girl....which is a shame, it seemed liked he was playing to his Pacey stereotype....
The Rules Of Attraction:-Also was expecting this to be poor, had read the novel a while back-HOWEVER- most of this film was excellent,especially,the speeded up backpackers Euro-Holiday.... (SHOCK HORROR)The BeeK- was great-Yeah I admit we could not get away from cheap Dawson jokes and made many, below the belt but inevitable jibes
Footnote: JVDB, seems to be an OK kinda of bloke (US translation= Bloke:Guy,)He was cool on the Graham Norton interview shown the other day....
The Ice Storm-very small role for KH as we all know, prior to DC ( I think) Movie not as good as expected. But definatly tried to be good.Ang Lee seems quite over rated to me. (Hulk was awful). On the whole the film seemed to be trying to hard( or mqybe its just that I can't stand Kevin Kline).
Can't seem to find Texas Rangers, with The Beek and "Sammy Potter-The Stepford Joey Potter"
When was this released in US? Did it get released at the multiplexs over the pond, cos no one has heard of it over here...........
What other movies should I expect to come my way,England is normally 3 months behind US DVD/TV Schedules releases?

Yes, but, the problem was that I couldn't get the image of his face while he was.....ahem.....having intercourse out of my head. It was like the I ATE POO face, only much much worse. And ickier. Oy, my stomache turns just thinking about it.
(SHOCK HORROR)The BeeK- was great-
ETA - Redneck, consider yourself lucky if Texas Rangers never makes it to your neck of the woods. It was awful. But, try to check out "Lonestar State of Mind" with Josh. Very watchable, in a cheesy way.

Was Texas Rangers really that bad...Steve Miner directing, with all his Dawsons Creek connections, not forgetting his Fridaythe13th/Halloween/House involvements.....Was it a horror movie? No puns intended...
P.S Lonestar State of Mind is also unheard of in stores around these parts.....

Yes. But, that is just my opinion. Others may have different views, but I don't know anyone who enjoyed this movie. It is worth a look for the Beek, Ashton Kutcher, and Rachel Leigh Cook, but it's just a horrible flop of a movie.

Can't stand either Rules of Attraction or Texas Rangers. ROA is just scarry. I am serious the first time I saw it I had to turn it off I thought I was going to be ill. James was just creepy and totally slime bally. Since I didn't finish watching it the first time I forced myself to watch it a second time. Why? I have no idea. It was just as bad as I remembered it from the first time. Really just beyond disgusting. Way more about The Beek than I ever wanted to know. Yikes!!
Texas Ranger? Drier than the dusty plains it is set in and totally predictable. Wanted to smack the smirk of James's face. What a freak.
