We told you several months ago that principal photography was underway for this new dark romantic comedy starring Guiding Light’s Tom Pelphrey and One Life to Live’s Melissa Archer!  Well, now the film has been completed and is ready to hit some movie theatres nationwide on October 12!

The film titled, Excuse Me For Living features Pelphrey in the leading role of Daniel Topler, who is brilliant and debonair, but drug-addicted and who is saved from a suicide attempt.   In court, the judge entrusts the wisecracking young man to the care of Dr. Bernstein, an elderly psychiatrist at an upscale rehab clinic.  The doctor issues these commands: obey the no-drugs rules, and join the geriatric temple men’s group he leads – or face incarceration.  Dan meets Bernstein’s luscious daughter, Laura (Melissa Archer).  But the psychiatrist forbids them to meet again.  The thread of Dan’s struggle to seek self-redemption, capture Laura’s love,  and Bernstein’s approval weaves to the story’s surprise conclusion.

Excuse Me For Living, also features Christopher Lloyd, Wayne Knight, Jerry Stiller, Robert Vaughn, James McCaffrey, and soap favorites: Ewa De Cruz, Tonja Walker, Shenaz Treasury and David A. Gregory! Excuse Me For Living was written, directed, and produced by Ric Klass!  For more information on cities and locations on where you can see Excuse Me For Living click here!

I heard that Melissa Archer was under contract with Prospect Park until Jan 2013, and would not be free to do movies/TV (is in McBain’s love Natalie on GH)
goes to show; gossip is usually wrong.

As a big MA fan I can not wait to see anything she is in! This looks good! I almost feel like driving the 4hrs to chicago the nearest city to me where its showing to see it! Since TPTB are dumb and won’t bring her to GH and take advantage of all her fans that don’t watch that show (maybe soon if the PP thing is true) she just has so much hyper energy on screen she diffenatly won’t put you to sleep unlike some other that shall not be named!!!!

Defintely going to see this on October 12th when it comes out! Congrats to Melissa Archer, the movie looks fun and she looks so beautiful! Hope she and Tom Pelphrey are a hit, they look wonderful together and make it big on the big screen. I loved her as Natalie on OLTL and with John but since the TPTB were too dumb not to bring her to GH, I’m happy she is moving in this better direction. When do her other movies she did come out? Best of luck to her!

Never knew if she, or McBain, could act. McBain was always looking at Natalie’s boobs, as all audience memeber were. Should be a great movie if she wears the same low cut tops.

After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
