Merry Christmas to all the fans in Stevedom. That’s right, Sony Pictures has decided to release Concussion on Christmas Day, so I suspect we know what you’ll be doing over the future holiday season.
The film stars Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a real-life forensic neuropathologist who shined a bright light on the plight of football players in the National Football League back in 2002 who suffered from chronic brain damage as a result of the hits they were taking in the game.
A film like this can bring this issue to the forefront, and on such a wide scale. While there is no way to get away from the fact that football is indeed a full contact sport (which brings with it a certain expectation for potential injury) there definitely needs to be steps taken to prevent an issue like this from turning into an epidemic.
Stephen Moyer plays the role of Ron Hamilton, the neuropathologist who was Bennet Omalu’s teacher.
Starring in this blockbuster film with Smith will be Alec Baldwin, Luke Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks and of course, Stephen Moyer will round out the all-star cast.
The Emerys were kind enough to share some photos of themselves on Twitter and we’re quite pleased to post them for everyone that’s Twitterless.
Courtesy of Anna Paquin is a photo of her and the hubby taken in Paris, the Christmas before the twins were born.
Steve reached even further back in time and came up with a photo from when he was 17 … party on Young Steve.
Yesterday, Steve wished Denis O’Hare a Happy Birthday and shared a fun photo of Denis and Anna Paquin taken at a True Blood deceased brunch, hosted by Steve & Anna.
Brazendale attended a Q & A with Denis O’Hare in Australia and posted the following snippet to YouTube, in which Denis shares about the brunch.
Stephen Moyer has a question for you and I’m pretty sure he wants you to answer it.
As you can see, Stephen received the perfect Christmas present … a very chic pair of sunglasses he can wear anywhere. So, what did you get for Christmas that you would love to share with Steve?
WEEV it now!
The National Geographic Channel has provided this special treat today! Check out this behind-the-scenes look at director Christopher Menaul’s new miniseries chronicling the life of Jesus of Nazareth. In addition to Steve, the cast also includes Emmanuelle Chriqui, Kelsey Grammer and Haaz Sleiman and is slated to air this spring.
Although, it’s not the Emerys who usually come to mind! Steve and his dad visited the Cockle Sheds of Old Leigh today. While spending some father/son time there, Steve and his dad took their picture in front of a cockle shed owned by F.A. Emery. What are the odds?
In case you don’t know what a cockle shed is, it’s a small building that sells seafood and clams (cockles). Not only is Old Leigh known for this, but they also offer the perfect day trip for strolling around and visiting one of the many shops, restaurants and pubs.
The series finale saw Bill’s voluntary demise after he tells Sookie she should be set free.
We have winners! Simply Moyer recently offered up two autographed photos of Stephen Moyer to help entice his fans to donate some much needed funds to Brentwood Theatre. On Saturday, December 20th, we put everyone’s name in a hat and pulled out two lucky winners.
The Mathew Rolston outtake photo from the Rolling Stone Magazine photoshoot will be going home to Jane, while Michelle looks forward to receiving the Ben Fisher photo. Happy Holiday, Ladies!
We were able to raise $156 for Brentwood Theatre due to some very generous donors. Thank you to everyone who let their Christmas generosity shine by participating in our fundraiser.
This is it! The Bill Compton statue that Stephen Moyer so generously autographed for Simply Moyer to auction for a favoured charity is about to end it’s time on the auction block. Come Sunday, December 21st, at 8:30 PM EST, the bidding will end and this very unique autographed item will have a new home. Will it be yours?
This limited edition Bill Compton bust was produced by DC Unlimited in 2010. Best of all, not only did Steve sign the name plate on the figure, but he also autographed the original box you’ll receive Bill Compton in. This special piece of True Blood memorabilia will make a perfect Christmas present to give yourself, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to one of Steve’s favourite charities, the CLARE Foundation.
So, don’t waste any more time and head over to ebay and bid on Bill Compton. Good luck!
The family Emery were spotted in LAX on Thursday, December 18th, leaving California for destinations unknown. Looks like Steve, Anna and the kids may be spending Christmas out of the country this year.
On another note, Steve finished filming Concussion on the 17th of December and it seems he couldn’t shave his beard off quick enough. No matter how attractive we found his facial hair, it’s wonderful to see his chiseled features once again.
December 20th is the deadline to enter your name in a drawing for a chance to win an autographed photo of Stephen Moyer! We’re going to give away an autographed photo of Steve to two lucky participants (photo will not be watermarked)! All you’ve got to do is donate as little as £10 to Brentwood Theatre. Not only will it help with the restoration projects for the theatre, it will also help send a child to Brentwood’s Christmas show. Send us proof (forward your confirmation email from Localgiving.com to email@example.com by December 20th) and you’re in the drawing! Easy peasy!
The top photo is from a Ben Fisher photoshoot. The bottom photo is an outtake from the 2010 Matthew Rolston Rolling Stone shoot and to the best of our knowledge, has not been in circulation! The first name drawn will win the Rolling Stone outtake photo, which means the Ben Fisher autographed photo will go to the second name pulled. Remember, deadline to enter the drawing is December 20th.
If you have the Christmas spirit AND want a chance to own one of these photos just click on the photo below and you’ll be directed to Brentwood’s donation page.
There’s no doubt that everyone in Stevedom has already seen The Sound of Music LIVE, but NBC is giving everyone a chance to relive the experience. This Saturday night (December 20th) at 8:00 p.m., NBC will rebroadcast TSOM. Is there any better way to spend your Saturday evening than to have Stephen Moyer belting out Edelweiss? We didn’t think so …
Holy Hell, we’ve got candids! We haven’t seen Steve around town since late September, almost 3 months we’ve been high and dry … I guess we can consider this an early Christmas present. These pics of the family were taken in Venice on their way to Abbot’s Habit, a trendy coffee shop in Venice, but we can’t be sure when. If we go by what Steve is wearing, it could be December 13th, the same day he and Anna returned a missing wallet Anna found belonging to a man from Pittsburg.
