Last month I caught up with Morgan Freeman at the LA Press day for Feast of Love, a small Indie film that had a limited release a few weeks ago with the hopes of having it go wide in the coming weeks. Feast of Love is a small indie film that talks about the various stages of love from the perspective of 3 different couples – one young couple in love, to the middle aged couple who end up getting a divorce and Freeman and his wife who have been together for several years. Check out my review. Morgan was in a great mood for this round table interview and was surprisingly funny and was a little reluctant to talk about Batman, but our friend Frosty over at Collider kept at him till Morgan gave us a quote. It’s funny Frosty and I was battling over who gets to ask the Batman question and I told him to go for it. Check out the interview it was fun, and I expect the studio will do an award campaign around this film. In this really weak year, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Morgan get some attention in the supporting actor category for this.

Last week I had a chance to have a sit down with the ever Popular Leslie Bibb. The interview was fabulous she was in a real talkative mood and who am I not to cater to it. So we talked a lot about Iron Man, what the atmosphere on the set was like, the character she plays, one of my old Favorite TV shows Popular (for some reason I got all giddy when she mentioned that one of her closest friends is fellow Popular co-star Carly Pope, what it’s like to be on the cusp of becoming an “A-List Actress,” her latest film Wristcutters: A Love Story and a whole lot more. It’s a fun informative 15 minute interview click the link below to listen.

Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth SeasonOctober 19, 2007
“She’s a bit of a scaredy cat. She’s not very good in dire or violent situations. She scares easily, which is not such a good thing when you’re in the world of Atlantis. She’s really great under pressure though. I think that’s when she’s at her best, especially when she’s in her element; anything to do with medicine or a complicated medical situation she’s just there. She’s just on. She’s very, very, very smart and very focused.” (more…)

John August and Melissa McCarthy Sitdown With Michelle Alexandria to talk about The Nines, Shazam, and more!!September 4, 2007
Director/Writer John August has woven one of the year’s most intriguing films, The Nines. This 90 minute film is broken into three parts, with all the small cast playing different roles in each story. On the service it seems like each story is its own separate thing but they merge in a different way at the end. It’s an intriguing concept that will most likely polarize audiences, either you’ll love it or you’ll hate. I recently caught up John and his co-star Melissa McCarthy. We talked a bit about this film and John’s upcoming Shazam movie and the Will Smith hero flick Hancock. (more…)
I’ve been saying this, a lot in the last month or so, but no matter how frustrating running EM is, it’s also very rewarding and surreal. Earlier this week I sat down with the great Morgan Freeman, and a couple of weeks ago I participated in a conference call with Who Wants to Be A Superhero Andy Scheer and one of my idols – Stan “The Man” Lee and the Producer of I shouldn’t have to tell you who the great man is. He is the Godfather of Super Heroes, while one of the “founding” members of Marvel Comics he created many of that company’s iconic characters including Spiderman, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, Captain America (I think) Iron Man, Daredevil and many more!
