Castlevania is a movie that Marina (Sirtis) got me involved with. It’s based on a video game. People have been trying to get this thing done for a long time and they finally got the producers together that want to do it. They finally got the OK from the owners, and so they’re doing it. It’s a fun little part. It’s four days, and I’m playing a werewolf that’s been around for a gajillion years who works for this vampire. It’s not too far from Worf because there’s a lot of killing and jumping and sword fights and everything.

Eddie Murphy makes things happen!  In the ten months since he stated that he was trying to produce a television show of the hit Franchise Beverly Hills Cop in which he originally starred, the show has become a reality, finding its home at CBS.  I know this wasn't likely a hard sell - we are talking about a well known franchise that grossed over $735 Million dollars.  Add to that Murphy, who hasn't been on television since his debut on Saturday Night Live, will appear in a few special episodes in the first season.  Yes, I am aware he voiced a character on the animated series The PJ's, but I am talking about in front of the camera.

At the start of “Battlefield America,” we see young, bold, and tough kids dancing at an underground dance battle. Think “You Got Serve” meets Disney’s “Ant farm”. I’ve never seen such talented young dancers dance. The opening scene gives way to a lot of great energy, but it resembles more of a music video, than that of an opening scene to a film.
