Actor and Site Updates!

Blog and Site update!

~~
Clancy Brown (voice of Montross in Star Wars Bounty Hunter) has just started filming The Guardian. Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher also star.
The Guardian centers around two men, one a hardened swim instructor for the "A" School (Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers) who lost his crew during a crash, the other a young swim champion who's being trained for the CGRS and vies for the top spot as the best of the best. Clancy Brown plays the Coast Guard Commander.
The film is from Disney and is due to be released in September 2006.

Also:
Clancy Brown and Chopper Bernet (Commander Kirby in SW Rebel Assault II: The Hidden Empire) starred in a film that made the independent film circuit at festivals in 2003 but never had a wide release.

The Making of Daniel Boone is a comedy about how certain films get made and it's based on some of the writer/directors own experiences working on films over the years. Allan Kenton (Brown) is a writer and a Daniel Boone historian. He's convinced to work as a consultant on a biopic about Daniel Boone which the producer insists is true to detail and fact. Kenton learns it's anything but fact filled and is sure that the film will ruin his reputation as a Boone scholar. Chopper Bernet plays an actor playing Daniel Boone.

~~
Mark Capri (Warrant Officer M'Kae in ESB) stars as Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure at the Temple of Music and Art for the Arizona Theatre Company in Tucson, AZ). I'm told that Capri does very well in the role as Holmes and the production is true to the writing style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure continues until March 25, 2006.

~~
Harrison Ford (Han Solo - OT) - Narrates Arctic Dance: The Mardy Murie Story Check out the story of Mardy Murie HERE. Finally available on DVD this year.

~~
Peter Michael Goetz (General Madine in the ROTJ Radio Drama) is starring as Pollonius in Hamlet presented at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, MN until May 7, 2006.

~~
David Alan Grier (provided the voice for Bo Shek and other characters for the ROTJ Radio Drama) will be featured in the new animated series from Keenan Ivory, Shawn and Marlon Wayans, called Thugaboo. The series will premier on Nickelodeon later this year.

~~
James Earl Jones (voice of Darth Vader) Narrates, lends his voice to, Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy a documentary about the Cherokee Indians and the "Indian Removal" that took place by President Andrew Jackson's orders. Wes Studi leads us through the documentary in Cherokee.
The brutal Indian Removal forced Indians (in particular the Cherokee) to travel west into Oklahoma, the journey took 18 months and nearly one quarter of those Cherokee died from starvation, exposure and exhaustion.

Just released on DVD on March 1, 2006.

~~
Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine in OT/PT) - is set to star as William Cecil the 1st Baron of Burghley (called Lord Burghley) in an HBO produced mini-series called Elizabeth I. Helen Mirren plays Queen Elizabeth I. Burghley was Elizabeth's administrator as Secretary of State then as Lord Treasurer. He was one of several men whom Elizabeth solidly trusted.

The four hour series starts in April on HBO.

~~
Jack Thompson (Cliegg Lars - PT) - added several pics to his page and a more detailed biography.

...imagine a world...where the average day is 59 hours long...where a woman...lost in time...has enough hours in the day to do enormous updates to her amazing site...every day...

Leah, how do you do it? I struggle to find time to write three news entries a day for the site! As always hats off to you!

lol I don't know! I really need a staff!


Since I'm drawing ALL DAY LONG now...I take breaks to warm up my fingers. Either by stretching them out, typing or doing some other things around the "office". I don't have enough hours to do exactly what I want: work, care for my son, play but I budget my time so I get the most out of the day...and sleep 5-6 hours as a bonus.

The update is just typing up the things I've noted over the week, type and post.
Cheers to you mate!!
