Calendar Events / Announcements '10 II / Maureen Dowd talks vampires
« on: July 07, 2010, 01:23:41 AM »
This past weekend, NY Times Op-Ed Columnist Maureen Dowd called for letting your [fanged] freak flag fly on Independence Day.  From My Deathless Passion:

"It wasn’t until I was in high school that fangs started to seem alluring — with the arrival of the campy daytime soap 'Dark Shadows,' set in Maine and featuring the vampire Barnabas Collins. (Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have discussed an adaptation.)"

Obit in Sunday's LA Times:

Ed Limato dies at 73; longtime Hollywood agent

His first client was David Selby, and the actor remained with him until his death.  From hollywoodnews.com (the author's memories of a 2001 party at Limato's home):  "David Selby, the terrific actor, telling me that Ed Limato had been his one and only agent through his whole career. Despite Limato adding Mel Gibson (then sane), Denzel Washington, Michelle Pfeiffer and other movie stars over the years, he’d remained loyal to Selby. And vice versa."

A friend reminded me that Limato was one of the special people listed in the dedication for In and Out of the Shadows.

**** JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT STARS IN NEW THRILLER FILM

JOE's (1991 David, Daniel) stars as "Arthur" in INCEPTION from director Christopher Nolan (DARK KNIGHT), a film opening 7-16 natiownide in 3D and regular formats. Also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, the psychological thriller delves into espionage within people's dreamspace. Recent SG print issues have reported about Joe and the highly-anticipated drama.

Please send SG any articles, interviews, reviews, publicity, or other material about INCEPTION. Send to SG's e- or postal-mail addresses later in this Update.

*** ROY THINNES AT SEPT. CONVENTION

Roy (1991 DS' Roger, Rev. Trask) is expected to guest at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention, 9-23/25 at the Marriott Hunt Valley Inn in Hunt Valley, MD. Website: http://www.MidAtlanticNostalgiaConvention.com

Roy starred as architect David Vincent in the 1967-68 TV series "The Invaders." He's had numerous soap and stage roles and guested on "The X-Files."

Roy was our DS Festival guest in Los Angeles and NYC in the early `90s. He also participated in the May 8, 1991 fan "protest" outside NBC-TV's main headquarters in Burbank, joined by co-stars Lysette Anthony, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael T. Weiss, and Ely Pouget.

This and similar events at network affiliate offices in over a dozen cities nationwide were held that day. These and a massive fan write-in/phone campaign were coordinated by SG, The World of DS fanzine, Inside the Old House fanzine, and the DS Fest to show public support for the 1991 TV series and save it from cancellation. Unfortunately, NBC did cancel the series despite these efforts.

I'm sure many of you have seen the ads/trailers for Christopher Nolan's Inception, which opens July 16 and features Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a large supporting role (originally to have been played by James Franco).  If not, check out the official site.

Nolan's other movie featuring a [future] DS actor was 2002's Insomnia with Martin Donovan.

Marcy says: You are invited to come onstage to show off your outfit as a DS character or DS- or horror genre- inspired persona, or to perform a recitation, song, dance, or skit. Please note there is a per-entry 2-minute time limit. Any accompanying music/recording must be on a clearly-labelled CD, not on tape.

Shortly before the Gala (approximately 7:30) is a rehearsal, where participants hear ideas and tips on the best ways to present their costume/performance, ask questions, and receive the line-up order of entries. Be sure to bring your completed entry form with you to the rehearsal! It's understandably normal to feel nervous or unsure, but the Gala is for the joy of sharing, no matter your age or theme of your entry. Infants with parents, children of all ages, and adults to seniors step onstage to create their own DS-inspired interpretations. Please come and join in!

Gala questions: Please contact Marcy as soon as possible via e-mail: ShadowGram@aol.com
