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.

Everyone who has followed Steve is aware of how close he is with his family. So, it should come as no surprise that he would help promote his sister new business, Todd Sloane. Steve and Amanda were interviewed by Essex Live to discuss the opening of Amanda’s new shop in Epping, Essex.
Of gift shop and cafe, Steve says, “The shop looks fantastic and of course Amanda is a Brentwood girl.”
Amanda said of her shop, “We sell gifts, accessories and homewares, a real mix of things. There is stuff for children and cool jewellery and all the furniture is for sale. … Everyone who comes in really loves the shop the main thing is just getting to know that we are there.”
We think based on this photo that Steve shared on Instagram that the food looks particularly yummy!
According to the article, Steve has finished filming Safe House and has returned to his home in Los Angeles following a stop-off in Montreal to visit Anna.
Steve added: “Me and my wife have always shot at different times but this time we couldn’t do it. Five weeks ago I flew to Toronto and stopped off for 36 hours to give the kids a squeeze and then flew back but I’m done now.”
Be sure to check out Essex Live to read the rest of the article for some more tidbits about Amanda’s store, as well as what Steve had to say about Safe House. The article also mentions that Steve will be directing in January, a scoop we reported on here.
We wish Amanda every success with her shop and wish we could check it out ourselves!
On several occasions, Steve has mentioned his desire to direct Columbia, a film written by Denis O’Hare. Steve even mentioned Columbia recently while answering fan questions on Twitter:
In a interview for the October 14th edition of Parade, Cynthia Nixon is asked about future projects and says, “Next is Denis O’Hare’s film, Columbia The Movie. It’s a film that Denis wrote and is starring in. It’s an autobiographical film that’s about his sister’s suicide. I play one of his sisters—not the sister who killed herself. We’re going to shoot that in January”.
Denis said the following about Columbia in an interview with The Lumière Reader:
AB: I’m interested in your own projects as a writer. You mentioned you approached [Philip Seymour] Hoffman about one?
DO: It’s a movie I’m making with Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who have a production company [CASM]. I met them on True Blood. I wrote a movie about my sister’s suicide. It’s a weird road movie where my family and I had to go and figure out why she killed herself. We had to collect her life, pack up her life from this rental apartment she had in Missouri.
Anna and Stephen loved the script and so we’re working out a deal right now where Stephen would direct. I would be in it. I wanted Philip for one of the parts. I think I’ll try to go to Paul Giamatti who’s a friend of mine and who I love and think is a great actor. We hope to make it next year. We’re just trying to figure out financing; who’s going to make it and all that.
It’s a double whammy. I get to make a film I want to make, and I get to work with my friends who I love, Stephen and Anna.
The thought of Steve directing his first feature film has us quite excited, how about you?
Check out Parade to read the rest of the interview with Cynthia Nixon, where she discusses playing Nancy Reagan for the upcoming Killing Reagan, premiering Sunday on The National Geographic Channel.
Thanks to Brazendale for the scoop!
