© JPI Studios

Van Hansis’s (Luke, ATWT)  first feature film Occupant has a brand new longer trailer that was released within in the last 24 hours.   When Van in his recent interview with On-Air On-Soaps discussed how fantastic the cinematography was, he was not kidding!  The trailer is spooky, eerie, and riveting enough to make you want to see more.

You will also see Thorsten Kaye (Zach, AMC) playing the doorman in the building that this whole psychological/horror film takes place.

Watch Van after the jump in Occupant!

Thank you for this! I can’t wait for “Occupant” to be released! That looks fantastic, especially with Van in it!

“When Van in his recent interview with On-Air On-Soaps discussed how fantastic the cinematography was, he was not kidding! The trailer is spooky, eerie, and riveting enough to make you want to see more.” That’s totally true! I love it!

This trailer is great and the movie looks fantastic! I adore that Van choose to do this film: he is doing so wonderful in it! Thank you.

Van does a beautiful work in this trailer. I am impatient to watch the whole movie! Thank you for the news about this movie.

As i’m not a fan of “scary movies” normally I wouldn’t watch it.But since i’m such a fan of Van I’ll grit my teeth and watch it.He’s so fabulous, isn’t he.I’m loving him!

Oh yes, you totally should watch this film if only because Van does a fantastic job in it. Plus, Van said it is more of a psychological thriller. It has gothic effects and that’s beautifully done. And I love Van too!!

Van said that this movie is a thriller that “f*cks with your head”. I am totally for that kind of movies and Van Hansis playing the leading role is like Heaven for me.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.

I do read and appreciate what you share with me, that you entrust me with your thoughts and feelings. You are ever on my mind and in my heart, and I look forward to getting active and out there again as soon as possible. Until then, remember to play nice, be kind, and stay engaged! Our futures depend on it.”
