Help Our "Final Destination 5" Friends and Win Great Prizes! The Fun Emma Bell, Ellen Wroe Kickstarter Project!  


Emma Bell and Ellen Wroe -- I adore these lovely ladies (click on their names to see my fun interviews with them for "Final Destination 5")! I interviewed them for "Final Destination 5" last year, and this year, they were so sweet to reach out to little old me for help! You see, they are currently working on The Food Ditty, their spoof "Rap/Jazz/R&B parody mocking the dichotomous viewpoints of the American health food craze and obesity obstacle. It will be a quirky, quaint and quite idiosyncratic video much in the vein of Ellen's first spoof rap video, The Gatorade Rap, which can be viewed here."

And now, they've launched their Kickstarter campaign and so far, they have 107 backers, $10,299 pledged of $15,000 goal, BUT, they only have 5 days to go! So can you please help them? Even for a dollar? Their fun Food Ditty project will only be funded if at least $15,000 is pledged by Thursday, Aug. 23rd at 9:49am EDT.

And here's the coolest thing -- if you donate, both Ellen and Emma promise various rewards such as autographed "Final Destination 5" posters, original scripts, and, if you're a fan of "The Walking Dead" like me, you will be happy to know that the shirt worn by Emma Bell as her character, Amy, before she was eaten by zombies, is one of the rewards as well!

Click here to go to their Kickstarter campaign...please?

So go help and get rewarded by the fabulous Ellen and Emma!

Here's Ellen's "The Gatorade Rap" again. I'm sure their "The Food Ditty" project will be as equally funny! So help, help, help!

Thank you :happy

Casey Affleck Talks About "ParaNorman!" 


Casey Affleck voices the character of Mitch in “ParaNorman.” He’s the muscle-bound, older brother of Neil (the funny Tucker Albrizzi), Norman’s (Kodi Smit-McPhee) friend. His character has a twist in the end that invites you to never judge a book by its muscular body.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in working on “ParaNorman”
*** Doing voicework
*** His character Mitch
*** Does he believe in paranormal activity?

Have fun!

ParaNorman Speaks! Interview with Kodi Smit-McPhee 


I strongly believe that Kodi Smit-McPhee is a talented actor. He wowed us in “The Road” with Viggo Mortensen, and he was incredible in “Let Me In” the remake of “Let the Right One In.” Smit-McPhee has a knack for choosing thought-provoking pieces that challenge him as an actor. ("ParaNorman" movie review)

In the new movie “ParaNorman,” the actor voices the role of the 11-year-old Norman, the boy who sees dead people. In this interview, we talked about:

*** His attraction to voicing the character of the boy who sees dead people
*** How he chooses his roles
*** Why “ParaNorman” is layered
*** How his voice changed in the middle of making the movie
*** Does he believe in paranormal activity?
*** What does he want kids to take away from the movie?

Have fun!
