We’ve been hoping Steve would share some photos from the set of Killing Jesus, but I’m sure like you all, we hoped he would be in them. So far, it’s not the case, though Steve did share some pictures on FaceBook and Instagram that made us chuckle.
As we’ve said in the past, beggars can’t be choosers.
Everyone in Stevedom is aware that he’s jetted off to Morocco to portray Pontius Pilate in the upcoming film, Killing Jesus. It’s been relatively quiet since Steve tweeted updates about his travel adventures to the Sahara, but Eoin Macken (Antipas) shared this photo on his Instagram yesterday. Does the guy behind him look familiar?
Simply Moyer received our invitation to the 17th Annual Friends of CLARE Tribute Dinner, which will be held on November 13th in Santa Monica, CA. The event remains a True Blood affair, as Joe Manganiello is slated to receive the Friends of CLARE Tribute Award, an award that was presented to Stephen Moyer in 2010. We’re not sure if Steve will be back from Morocco in time to attend the dinner, but he is an event co-chair, and also sits on the CLARE Board of Directors.
Proceeds from this event will benefit CLARE’s mission of providing effective and compassionate treatment and recovery services for alcoholism and substance abuse to individuals, families, and the community.
We’re one step closer to a new project with Stephen Moyer. Last week we learned he had been cast as Pontius Pilate in a new Bill O’Reilly mini series, Killing Jesus. Today, Steve is on his way to start filming this Nat Geo adventure in Morocco. One step closer …
Steve has arrived in Morocco:
All fans in Stevedom are aware that today, October 11th, marks Steve’s 45th birthday. Once again, we’ve decided to celebrate the special event with a collage commemorating twelve months of Steve.
All in all, it’s been a pretty extraordinary year for Steve, from the birth of CASM Film’s first feature, Free Ride, to the death of True Blood and our beloved Bill Compton. In between, Steve entertained millions with his captivating portrayal of Captain Georg von Trapp in The Sound of Music, lived out a boyhood fantasy when he represented Team England in Soccer Aid at Old Trafford Stadium, jumped into the social media platform when he joined Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook, and launched his own iTunes App, Weev. Don’t think anyone could blame him and the missus for taking some well deserved R&R in the months leading up to his 45th.
We at Simply Moyer wish Steve a fantastic birthday and a year filled with health, love, and happiness.
Anna Paquin has issued a special request! She’d like people to wish her delectable husband, Stephen Moyer, a Happy Birthday! All you’ve got to do is download Weev onto your iPhone to add your birthday message to Steve. If you haven’t downloaded Weev already, just click on Anna’s picture above! What are you waiting for? Time to join the Weev conversation!
From Bill Compton to Pontius Pilate!
Hallelujah! News of Steve’s first role, post Bill Compton, has just been released. He’ll be among an all-star cast in National Geographic Channel’s TV movie, “Killing Jesus”. In this huge endeavor, Steve will be playing Pontius Pilote, the Roman governor who ordered Jesus’ crucifixion.
Based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, the film chronicles the life of Jesus of Nazareth through the retelling of the political, social and historical conflicts during the Roman Empire that ultimately led to his death.
Starring with Steve will be Kelsey Grammar, John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) and Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor) playing Jesus.
The film “Killing Jesus” will break new ground in chronicling the life of the most famous human being who ever lived,” said O’Reilly, who also serves as an executive producer. “The superb cast and script reflect much thought and research. Viewers are in for something very different and very special.
Killing Jesus will premiere globally on National Geographic Channel in 2015 in 171 countries and 45 languages, and in Spanish on Nat Geo Mundo. The movie hails from the Emmy-nominated team behind Killing Kennedy, including O’Reilly, Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Mary Lisio and Teri Weinberg. Heather Moran and Charlie Parsons will exec produce for NGC.
Filming begins this autumn.
This is the most awesome of tattoos! @tiffys1983 has made her body a canvas for Bill Compton. The tattoo of this heroic vampire was finished the other day and she has since shared the photo on her Twitter account and also tweeted it to Steve.
I expect quite a few ladies are going to be mobbing you in the future, @tiffy1983. Just keep reminding them … Bill is Mine!
How fun is this? Teespring is offering limited edition hoodies, tanks and t-shirts with It’s A Moyer Thing printed on the front of your choice of item. They come in multiple colors and styles, but you don’t have much time left to order if you want Moyer on your chest. And no worries, we WOULD understand if you do.
Thanks to Cerise for sharing her find.
Steve was spotted grabbing a cup of java with a friend at a cafe in Santa Monica earlier today. We’re always left to wonder: is this a business meeting to discuss a future project, or simply a casual cup of coffee amongst friends. Whatever the event, Steve looked pretty damned good chatting away. His holidays have obviously agreed with him!

Looks like vacation is officially over for Steve. He even mentioned this a few nights ago via Twitter:
Earlier today, Steve was spotted taking part in one of his favorite (or more likely not so favorite!) past-times: hitting the gym! That’s right! The man who proclaimed that “cardio is the devil” was seen looking mighty fine post workout. And also makes us question: could a future project be in the works?
It’s a short little video of Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer taking pictures with fans and sharing their autographs at the Apple Q&A in SoHo from July 15th. It’s not much, but as we’ve said in the past when news of Steve was sparse, beggars can’t be choosers.
Last night, Steve and Anna dined at Redwood Grille in Santa Monica, CA and the proprietors were kind enough to post a photo on their Instagram page. Both Steve and Anna are looking well rested following their holidays abroad.
