Actor and Site Update!

Blog and Site update!Yep, another week has passed and here we are again.

~~
Joel Edgerton (Owen Lard - PT) will have a small but interesting role in Joe Carnahan's upcoming film Smokin' Aces. It stars Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia, Jeremy Piven, Don Cheadle and several others including a gal I went to high school with, Clare Carey (Coach).It's about a guy, Buddy Israel (Jeremy Piven) a magician turned mobster, who turns state evidence against the mob and those who want to kill him for doing so. Edgerton didn't go into any detail on his character.The film will be released sometime this year.

~~
Harry 'Aitch' Fielder (Death Star Trooper Grenwick in ANH; ROTJ) - Aitch wrote me a couple of weeks ago to tell me about a load of new screenshots that were up at his site. I've added a few of them to his page.

~~
Sir Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi - OT) - I added many pics to his page and a couple of other details here and there.

~~
Tom Kenny (Biggs in SW Rogue Squadron II & III) will voice Leon in Squirrel Boy, a new series on the Cartoon Network. They will start the show with 13 episodes which will air in July of this year (2006). Kenny will also voice a character in the new series Class of 3000. Other Star Wars alum in this series' cast are: Jennifer Hale, Phil LaMarr and Jeff Glen Bennett.

~~
Peter MacNeill (Jord Dusat in Droids) who was in A History of Violence last year will star in The Marsh on the big screen, a story of a young children's writer who has to solve a mystery in a horror setting. To be released later this year.MacNeill is also set to play General Anderson in a new mini-series called Above and Beyond which centers around the Atlantic Ferry Operation of World War II. The North Atlantic Ferry Operation of World War II was arranged to allow US built aircraft to be flown from Montreal, Quebec to Prestwick, Scotland for the war. Release is scheduled for November 2006.

~~
Michael Pennington (Moff Jerjerrod - ROTJ ...I DID IT!! lol) will star in the Best of Friends on stage. Pennington plays Sir Sydney Cockerell, curator of the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge. And, as I wrote HERE......The Best of Friends centers on the friendships of Co*ckerell, George Bernard Shaw (Roy Dotrice) and Dame Laurentia McLachlan (Patricia Routledge), a benedictine nun, Abbess of Stanbrook Abbey and writer. The play, adapted by Hugh Whitemore, interweaves the letters and essays of the three good friends into an interesting and entertaining piece of theatre.The play runs through March. and I believe into May, at the Hampstead Theatre, Swiss Cottage, London.

~~
John Ratzenberger (Major Bren Derlin - ESB) is in a new TV commercial for WellPatch.

~~
Peter Serafinowicz (voice of Darth Maul in TPM) directed a short four-minute feature about the Oscar. See the brief HERE.
