All good things must come to an end, and we (Cindy and Becky) have decided that the time has come to close our site. Although running the site for the last seven years has been tremendously rewarding and has enabled us to meet some incredible people (both online and off), we have collectively come to the conclusion that it is time to move on. Becky has the opportunity to do some extensive traveling, and Cindy wants to focus her time on her family and dog rescue. We are still huge Steve (and Anna) fans and will continue to follow their careers, although without our reporter caps on. We’ll keep the forum around for anyone who wants to drop by and say hello, and may share some news on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
We wish everyone the best and are incredibly thankful for all the support and feedback our followers have given throughout the years.
It looks like Steve has lent his vocal talents to another project! Vault of the Macabre’s Fright Before Christmas, a short film by Darren Field, features narration by a rather spooky-sounding Stephen Moyer! Check out the video below and be sure to check your curtains are closed tonight!
Steve and one of his partners at CASM, Mark Owen Larkin, have been sharing some photos from Toronto where they have been doing some location scouting. According to Pop Goes the News, Steve will be directing The Parting Glass in Toronto! Filming is expected to begin in January. The Parting Glass is written by and stars Denis O’Hare and is the true story about the suicide of Denis’ sister and his family’s attempt to understand what happened. The Parting Glass will be the first feature directed by Steve and the second feature film under the CASM umbrella. The Parting Glass also stars Anna Paquin and Cynthia Nixon. We’re excited to see the CASM clan embark on this film project!
Steve shared this photo on Twitter yesterday featuring he, Mark Larkin, and Guy Godfree on a location scout up in Toronto. We’re assuming this may be tied to The Parting Glass, the CASM film starring Denis O’Hare, Anna Paquin, and Cynthia Nixon that Steve is slated to direct. Cynthia Nixon mentioned in an interview with Parade Magazine that they will begin shooting in January. We’re looking forward to seeing more behind-the-scenes pics from this crew!
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.
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!
