Colette and I met on the set of my directorial debut "L.A. DJ" She had a cameo in the movie. We started dating about 2 years later and the rest is history. We've been married for 6 years and have a son that's almost a 1 year and half old. Acting is my main gig, while music is Colette's main career. Music for me is similar to Steve's dream of being a chef in "Delivering the Goods"
Are you a good cook? Did you have to do a lot of research for your role? Who's the cook in your family you or your wife?
I saw American Reunion a few months ago and felt compelled to buy it I just loved it that much I had to add it to my Blu-ray collection. That and American Wedding were my two favorite sequels outside of the original no knock on American Pie 2 I just felt the latter two movies had stand-out stories. How was it having the entire gang from the original film back in American Reunion? I happen to love the film but it felt like the perfect wrap-up to the series tying up all loose ends it seems. Is the series done or is it possible for more American Pie sequels in the future?
Around the time of making American Pie 2 was a busy time for me. I remember filming Stealing Sinatra, Halloween Resurrection and Rules of Attraction all in the same year. I thought that it would be cool that my first horror movie was part of the Halloween legacy. I also got the chance to choose between a couple of characters. I could either die 3rd in the film or 3rd to last. I've seen so many horror movies and knowing all the pitfalls I thought it would be so cool to be a semi-recognizable face but die much earlier than the audience expected. My own little inside joke.

No one could have predicted the tragic events that unfolded only hours ago like a dream, the nightmare all too real in this world as any Christopher Nolan could have made up. In the cool early morning of weeks end, not long after the release of one of the most anticipated films in recent memory, a troubled man let loose his animosity with all the devastating details of a
What started as a time of celebration and excitement with the release of Nolan’s final installment in his three picture deal with Warner Bros. took a tragic twist of fate today, Friday July 20th, 2012 at 12:30am in a packed movie theater in Aurora Colorado when a man wearing a gas mask entered the theater, set off a smoke bomb and opened fire. The details are still being pieced together but 12 people have been reported dead and many others injured, the story flooding traditional news outlets and social networks in an avalanche. Headlines have been hijacked by the rush to figure it out, not knowing what to say, scattered sentiments filled with uncertainty, anger and sadness. Celebrities have responded,
It's impossible to distance the tragic events surrounding Christopher Nolan’s second film, The Dark Knight in 2008 when co-star Heath Ledger died with today's tragedy. There is no way to know how much of a role Ledger's death factored into the films incredible success - earning over $1 billion dollars in world-wide box office receipts, or how it might have contributed to praise, condemnation and criticism. Nolan's first film, Batman Begins was released to much interest and curiosity in 2005 and went on to establish a lasting connection with audiences, consistently earning high marks by review aggregators Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. People have embraced Nolan’s efforts to humanize the iconic anti-hero, to revisit his past in order to inform a more rewarding and substantive future. Within Nolan’s most respected choices are his use of universal themes of personal triumph and development, showing characters coming to terms with loss and the impossibilities of right and wrong in the name of justice. Nolan’sGotham City is frightening familiar, driven close to home in many ways, purposeful commentary that he could not know would become if not a mirror held up to show us our own troubled injustices then a reminder how life and art are intimately linked.
In the wake of last night’s shooting, Warner Bros. has taken an active approach in down playing commercial concerns for more human ones, delaying the release of box office receipts and canceling press junkets, the Paris premiere and other events. It’s hard to know what is going to happen moving forward. The final film has been packaged with the second-widest release in history behind “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” with early figures already estimating that the film and the franchise will be the biggest commercial success in movie history. For now it's too soon to celebrate anything, we just have to get through the days ahead.
