We reported a little over a week ago that Steve had been added to the cast of “Tribes of Palos Verdes.” Deadline Hollywood reported today that Steve is exiting that project due to a “scheduling conflict.”
Naturally, we’re a bit bummed out that we don’t have this film to look forward to, but this news has got us wondering: what’s the project that is creating the conflict? Check out this prior post about some potential films/series for the CASM Team. Here were some of the CASM projects that were mentioned:
- Twinkle will be directed by Howard Deutch and will star Stephen Moyer.
- The Pink Hotel, based on the novel by Anna Stothard which Anna Paquin will write and direct.
- Bury This, based on the novel by Andrea Portes who is adapting for Paquin to star.
- Columbia, written by and to star Denis O’Hare which Moyer will direct.
- Lonely Werewolf Girl, an adaptation of the novel by Martin Millar.
Which project would you like to see the CASM crew work on next? Or are you hoping that Steve will land another film or television series outside of the CASM spectrum? Jump into the comments and share your thoughts!
CarterMatt.com posed an interesting question: “Should True Blood return to HBO with Alexander Skarsgård, Anna Paquin, and cast?” The article poses two possible scenarios to warrant a return.
We see two different approaches to righting the show with “True Blood.” The first is that you rewind from the closing flash-forward and show how Sookie met this man, and some of the problems that awaited her moving forward from Bill. We have a hard time imagining that this was smooth sailing! Also, you could see Eric and Pam’s rise to power in the business world.
Another idea is to merely set the show months removed from the end of the flash-forward, and tell a new story almost as though this was not really the end. Given that this is a world where there are always new threats waiting in the wings, the writers could think of reasons to throw Sookie back into the fire.
Check out the rest of the article at CarterMatt.com and also participate in the poll whether you feel True Blood should be resurrected. As for how we’d feel about a True Blood reboot …
We recently shared photos of Steve saying goodbye to his Aston Martin and saying hello to his street ready 1940 Chevy pickup truck. Well, not only did Picture Car Warehouse bring Steve’s truck back to life, they also built him a custom mini V.W. bus pedal car.
As you can see, Steve shared a photo on FaceBook of the pedal car and his Aston Martin back on January 23rd. And though, we at first suspected the V.W. was built for the twins, it seems to fit Steve to a tee.
Thanks to Chamberlain Corbett for the find!
It’s never an easy thing letting loose of a well loved car, but it seems Steve has done just that. He’s saying goodbye to his British made Aston Martin, that I’m sure turned heads wherever he drove, and will be putting another attention getter on the road.
Steve shared on social media that his 1940 Chevy Pickup is finally done and has been officially released from the garage for some cruising up the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). Enjoy the badassness, Steve!
Steve has been added to the cast of Tribes of Palos Verdes , a movie set in the affluent Los Angeles suburb of Palos Verdes. The script by Karen Coner (Admission) centers on two teenagers, Medina and Jim, who move to the beach community with their parents as their mother teeters on the brink of a nervous breakdown and their father becomes a surgeon to the stars.
Jennifer Garner will have the starring role of the teenagers’ mom and guess who’s playing daddy … Steve! The film is set to start filming in February, so with any luck we’ll have some photos and more information on the movie before long.
Steve’s new film is based on the book by Joy Nicholson and can be found at amazon.com.
In The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Medina Mason is a defiant, awkward newcomer to the affluent beach community of Palos Verdes, California. As her parents’ marriage disintegrates and her beloved brother falls prey to the temptations of drugs and the lunacy of their mother, Medina surfs to survive, finding a bitter solace in the rough comfort of the waves. This is the moving story of growing up “different,” of the love between siblings, and of one girl’s power to save herself.
Better late than never certainly fits this photo of Steve and the make-up girls from TBX. Though, we have no doubt these lovely ladies surpass all the other women in Wales employed by the movie/TV industry, we also believe that holds true for Steve … he’s the loviest actor in Wales or possibly the world. Yes, we’re fangirling!
Update: If you would like to share a photo you have of Nia, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it to the post for everyone to enjoy.
On Friday, January 8th, we lost a very dear friend and frequent contributor to this site, “BillsNia”, or “chchchanges” as she was known on our forum. Nia became well known throughout the True Blood fandom world for her love and devotion of Bill Compton, often cyber-duking it out to defend her favorite vamp. As she was on the True Blood sites, she lived her life much the same way. Passionate and standing up for what she believed in. Nia fought courageously until the end.
We and other Bill/Steve fans had the privilege of meeting and spending time with Nia on various occasions, including True Blood premiere parties and hooking up with her and her husband (who in good nature referred to us all as “The Stephen Sisters”) in Los Angeles during Steve’s performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
Nia was also passionate when it came to caring about others, and she was always first in line when it was time to donate towards any cause that mattered to Steve. She was one of the top three contributors in the infamous Battle of the Fang duel and helped spread the word about Steve’s participation in the contest; she sent positive messages and words of encouragement to Bertie Portal and James Cash on their Facing the Atlantic message page and followed their progress during the race. She even won a Caption Contest and was selected by Bertie and James for her name to appear on their boat, Patience.
Nia’s reaction to winning the Caption Contest was priceless:
My emotions are still all over the place.
I knew this was coming but I didnt realize how much it would affect me.
My first reaction was to at squeal in delight as a child, then to sit still as stone with one hand covering my mouth and the other over my heart at the sight of my name on this amazing boat.
Once again, my most heartfelt appreciation to the wonderful moderators here at Simply Moyer for the opportunity to be a part of all this, and to Bertie and James for allowing me to accompany them on this historic journey. It may seem that I will be there in name only but I believe also in spirit too.
Not only was Nia generous of heart and spirit, but she was also a gifted artist and writer. She contributed to Simply Moyer Fanfiction, both as a fanfic writer and an avid reader who always encouraged other writers with her comments and feedback. Nia also submitted a bittersweet piece for our “Let’s Write Bill Compton’s End Game” series. You can read her piece here, but have a box of tissues ready. A few years ago, we sponsored a “Spotlight the Fan” series, and once again, Nia showed yet another amazing talent. Nia shared drawings she had done of Steve (and also one of David Bowie). You can see the three works she shared here.
It’s still difficult for us to comprehend that Nia is gone, but what isn’t surprising is how positive Nia remained throughout her entire ordeal. Nia once mentioned to a few of us that she didn’t want anyone to feel sorry for her, but to instead focus on the good things in life. We’re sure that we speak for many people who knew and interacted with Nia that we were all proud to have her as a “Stephen Sister”. Godspeed, Nia! We’re better for having known you!
Those who follow Steve on Twitter know that he frequently tweets back and forth with his friend, comedian John Moloney. This evening, Steve was in the audience at the Richmond Theatre for a benefit concert featuring John, as well as the original cast of the hit West End show “Sunny Afternoon.” The event raised money for SeeAbility, a charity which enriches the lives of people living with sight loss and multiple disabilities in the UK. Steve shared this great photo of he and John on Twitter.
What’s Steve been up to lately? He’s still in London spending time with friends and most importantly spending time with his son, Billy. Lucky for us, Steve enjoys sharing some of his leisure time on Twitter and FaceBook.
The Hollywood Bowl Steve visited is actually a bowling alley in Basildon and it’s not your average centre either. Besides the normal bowling lanes it also has four exclusive VIP lanes, each themed around a Hollywood Legend! From Marilyn to Harrison Ford, Audrey Hepburn to Elvis, all of this enjoyed in a roped off area with sumptuous surroundings.
Steve was kind enough to share a photo from one of his last days on the set of The Bastard Executioner. What we wouldn’t do for some more Milus Corbett on our television screens … sigh.
We may be in our longest dry spell ever when it comes to news or photos of Steve, so this little tidbit Steve shared on Twitter feels mighty sweet.
As of last night, Steve was in London watching Hapgood, starring Alec Newman, at the Hampstead Theatre with his mate, Pete Sullivan and his teenage son, Billy. If you’re in the area and crave some indoor entertainment, Hapgood will be playing through January 23rd. Get your tickets here.
As we bid adieu to 2015, what better way to ring in the new year than by checking out some of our favorite Steve pics from this past year. We at Simply Moyer would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. May 2016 bring forth health and happiness to all, as well as for Steve and his family. Here’s hoping for many new opportunities for Steve, Anna and CASM Films!
According to the Daily Mail, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin were spotted numerous times in Santa Barbara on the 21st of December. The sightings including Anna being seen with the little ones leaving a grocery store the same day. Could it be a Santa Barbara Christmas holiday?
A new clip was recently released for the movie Concussion, starring Stephen Moyer and Will Smith. Though, Steve’s role as Dr. Ron Hamilton is on the small side, it’s still going to be a thrill to watch Steve on the big screen over the holiday season. Don’t forget Concussion opens on Christmas day.
Accomplished pathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith), uncovers the truth about brain damage in football players who suffer repeated concussions and his struggles to bring awareness to the public while the NFL tries to silence him.
