The first two episodes of the much anticipated ten episode series “Shots Fired” will screen at the Sundance Film Festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 33rd Annual Sundance Film Festival will be held from January 19th to January 29th in Park City, UT. “Shots Fired” is featured in the “Special Events” category.
In addition to Steve, the “Shots Fired” cast includes Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfuss, and Mack Wilds. The screening will be followed by an extended Q & A. No word yet on cast members who will be in attendance or the date of the screening.
From The Hollywood Reporter, “Other hot-button fare includes the first two episodes of the 10-hour series Shots Fired from executive producers Gina Prince-Bythewood, Reggie Rock Bythewood, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo. The series takes place in the wake of racially charged shootings in a North Carolina town, where an investigator digs into the cases alongside a special prosecutor. Together they seek justice while navigating the ensuing media attention and public unrest threatening the divided town.”
Simply Moyer attended the Urbanworld screening of “Shots Fired” in September. Check out our report from the screening here.
We’ll update as we learn more information about this screening.
On November 10th Steve was once again an Event Chair for the 19th Annual Friends of CLARE Tribute Dinner. As many are aware, Steve has been heavily involved with the CLARE Foundation since his move to Venice, CA back when filming True Blood.
We asked Steve in 2014 why he chose to work with CLARE, to which he responded:
…So, I was working at the treatment center as a volunteer and one of the things that I specifically liked about CLARE is that it’s for everybody, it’s a non-paying clinic and it’s one of the only places where you can get a bed for free in this town. So we, … as you know, addiction centers and treatment facilities cost anything from 30 to 60 grand a month for an individual, and ours is free. Most of the people who work there are volunteers, there are obviously people on staff, but the money we raise mostly goes to getting a bed. It’s 24 thousand dollars for a bed for a year and when you think that 60 grand is most places a month and ours is one individual for a whole year for 24 thousand dollars … that’s unbelievable. So, that’s what we try and do.
Below are the highlights (that we are aware of) of Steve’s involvement with CLARE:
- 2011 – Honoree of the Friends of CLARE Tribute Award
- 2011 – Volunteer in CLARE’s Drug Court Program
- 2012 – Honorary Dinner Chair for Tribute Dinner
- 2012 – Volunteer in CLARE’s Drug Court Program
- 2013 – Joins the Board of Directors
- 2014 – Event Chair of Tribute Dinner
- 2015 – Panel member on the current state of addiction in Hollywood
- 2015 – Event Chair of Tribute Dinner
This year Steve again served as Event Chair of the Tribute Dinner which saw Jamie Lee Curtis receive the Friends of CLARE Tribute Award, Kevin Zegers receive the Spirit of CLARE Award, and Will I. receive Client of the Year. Master of Ceremonies was Pat O’Brien.
CLARE shared this video featuring Kevin Zegers on their Facebook page, which is how we obtained these photos.
How’s this for a great find? Twitter user @TheTickleFox shared these photos of Steve and his mate, Marc Warren playing poker at the Sparks Charity Poker Night back in 2008. We’re sure most remember that Marc was one of Steve’s costars in the British series Men Only, a particular favorite amongst Steve’s fans. The photos are credited to Jules Annan. It’s fun to see some throwback photos of Steve!
Steve might consider this photo embarrassing, but his fans love the pictures he shares when he was young. Though most of his fans might not recognize Steve if not told this was him, upon a good look we can certainly recognize the features he’ll grow into.

From the looks of this Tweet, Steve and Anna were at the Bell Center in Montreal last night to watch the Canadiens take on the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Canadiens came out on top, with a final score of 2-1. Thanks to Steve for sharing this photo on Twitter!
MovieWeb has shared the poster and trailer for Stephen Moyer’s upcoming indie film, Detour, which will debut in theaters and on iTunes on January 20, 2017. Filmmaker Christopher Smith employs a split-narrative structure to tell the tale of deception and murder where it is never made clear what or who can be trusted. Check out the trailer below!
We don’t know about y’all, but we’ve been in desperate need of a little distraction the past several days. Unless you’ve just woken from a coma, you likely know why. Thankfully, Steve has been sharing on his social media some fun photos and videos from Ojai, so we’ll share them here as well!
And thankfully, this lucky fan had his photo taken with Steve and shared it on Twitter. So, at least we’ve got lots of Steve goodies today!

If you have kids, especially teenage daughters, you know what the shopping experience can be like and we believe Steve expresses it quite well in this photo. If you don’t end up in a corner sucking on your thumb by the end of the day, your a stronger person than Steve or me.
Steve shared this photo on his social media sites on 11/06..
Steve has shared quite a few photos of his truck, “Little Blue” on his social media. He’s also shared quite a few pictures of his pooches, Dave and Banjo. Today, his photo featured both “Little Blue” and the boys. We always love when Steve shares pics with his fans.
Remember the days of Nekkid Bill and Sookie in season 3? We’ll certainly never forget!
Denis O’Hare was interviewed by New York Live on NBC and talked about the upcoming filming of The Parting Glass (formerly Columbia). As we know, Steve will be directing CASM’s second feature film. The Parting Glass is a biographical story written by and starring Denis and follows the story of his family on a journey as they try to discover why their sister took her own life. Denis shared that he wrote the film “as a way of dealing with my sister’s loss.” The Parting Glass will also star Anna Paquin, Cynthia Nixon, and Amy Ryan. Denis also discusses his new film Army of One (out November 4th) and the great experience of filming American Horror Story. [If the video below does not play, please click on the source link.]

On November 10th, the CLARE Foundation will hold their 19th Annual FRIENDS of CLARE Tribute Dinner. Once again, we’re thrilled to be invited, but sad we can’t attend. This year their Tribute Award goes to Jamie Lee Curtis. As most of you know, Steve received this honour back in 2010, and has continued being affiliated with CLARE by chairing this event every year since 2011, and by being added to the board of directors in 2013.
You can read about Steve’s battle with addiction at clarefoundation.org.
CLARE Foundation is a nonprofit organization and trusted community resource, providing effective and affordable alcoholism, substance abuse and behavioral health treatment and prevention services for nearly 50 years. Experienced, compassionate and specially trained staff help women and men find an end to the pain and suffering that is at the heart of addiction and discover hope in recovery. At CLARE you will find 24 hour residential treatment as well as a variety of outpatient programs that integrates the Twelve Step principles and ten other evidence based approaches, designed to meet each person’s needs and circumstances.
Conveniently located in the heart of Santa Monica, just minutes from the beach and business district, CLARE also offers community mental health services, support for families and prevention education for youth, because we believe the very best treatment is prevention.
