The Jessica Leccia/Nadia Bjorlin interview was fantastic! They are absolutely adorable together, and I love them as Lani. Hope to see more interviews with these two in the near future!

I would have loved to have seen the JL/NB interview but I have decided that I will not be paying for what are basically marketing materials. Asking people to pay for Venice itself or even the merchandise is one thing. Asking people to pay for an interview? If I chose to pay for these interviews, all of them together would cost more than the show itself. It feels like Venice is taking advantage of the fans. They saw a demand for these interviews, especially the JL/NB interview and decided to try to make some money off of them. After having… Read more »

You want me to pay for an interview? The well of both money and goodwill has run dry and Venice is not getting one more cent from me.

X2 The only “marketing” strategy Team Venice seems to have is to bilk more and more money out of fans. I thought the whole point of interviews was promotion. FAIL.

Is there something special that needs to be done to open the download. I’ve made 4 attempts with one more allowable. The default file is movie maker and a message pops up saying the file is not supported. I figure it should be easier than this to access.

Would never pay for an interview. This is really a cheap way for the Venice team to earn money.

Sorry, this is pure greed. We have to pay to watch the series – which is ok with me, but interviews to promote the series – should be free. After all, if the interviews are interesting, I just might purchase a subscription for Season 4.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.
