This Just In: Patrick Flueger Is Still Pretty

There are cute new thumbnail pictures of Patrick Flueger halfway down the page over on WireImage here from some January 30th LA party promoting an upcoming SpikeTV show called Exposing The Order of the Serpentine. Um. Catchy! Patrick is adorable as always, and I'm at least relieved that he no longer has the - and I can't believe Patrick is making me type this sentence - combover mowhawk that he was sporting last fall. (We never speak of the Jedi braid/ fan weave combo of the 2005 Emmys here. Ever.)

Anyway, Patrick has nothing to do with the show in any capacity, so I can only assume he was there pursuing that great American pasttime to which so many of us are addicted: stalking Jeremy Piven.

Season 2 Coming on DVD! FINALLY.

According to TVShowsOnDVD, Paramount is done taking their sweetass time releasing S2 of The 4400 and has decided on a May 23, 2006 release date. According to that site: "All 12 episodes (including the double-length season opener and the two-part season finale)" are included in this 4 DVD set, which runs 600 minutes. Nice.

Here is the cover art for the DVD set. Click on it and you'll get the full sized version. Aren't they pretty? Although, I know that it's supposed to look like Maia is trapped behind a glass wall or something since that's a pose they often have her strike, but mostly it looks like she's just waving hello. Hi, Maia!

Thanks again to cujoy over on LiveJournal for the heads up on this!

Laura Allen MegaUpdate

SushiGal, the webmistress of LauraAllen.Net just updated her news page in which she announces Laura will be guest-starring on an upcoming episode of House on FOX, airing April 11, 2006. She has one scene with the infamous Dr. House. I am totally not green with envy right now. Nope. Details and spoilers for the episode can be found on her news page.

Laura has also booked a pilot being produced by David and Courtney Cox Arquette and starring Courtney Cox Arquette. It's on the FX Network, and is described as a one-hour drama. The premise is listed on its IMDB page as:
A tabloid editor (Arquette) and her photographer try to make their way in the world of celebrity journalism.
Laura will be playing "Julia," a Hollywood starlet on whom Courtney's character is trying to get "dirt." Now, some people have fretted that this must mean that Lily will be killed off on The 4400, but that's not necessarily true. First of all, there's no word on whether or not "Julia" is a principle or even a recurring character. Even if she is, many, many actors book and film pilots during this time of year, but since the series will debut in the 2006-2007 season- if and only if ABC decides to pick it up - all the other episodes won't begin filming until late in the summer, or early fall. By then, The 4400 will have long finished filming its third season. It's possible the show simply gave Laura a few weeks off to do this project - otherwise, it is very easily possible she can do both and just work year-round. So don't anybody panic just yet.

Another major piece of news announced on her site: on September 23, 2006, Laura Allen is getting married to her fiance, Robert Bruce Weyman, a 34-year-old athlete/actor/model. Congrats, girl. He's a total hottie!

Eagle eyed frequenters of this blog (all three of you!) may have noticed the post before this one was made by Embitca and not me. That's 'cause this is a two-woman operation now, y'all! Ain't no stoppin' us now.

Chad to Star in Reasonable Facsimile of "Carrie"

After much confusion and Google-inspired wild goose chases, I've been able to figure out where the heck anyone can see Tamara, the new horror film starring Chad Faust ("Kyle Baldwin" on The 4400) about a psychic girl who wreaks revenge and havoc on her high school tormenters. IMDB lists the movie as having been released last year. The reality is that it was released on DVD in Brazil and was originally expected to go straight to video January 31, 2006 in the US.

However, apparently the studio changed its mind in the interim due to "Internet buzz," although I heard that on the Internet, so take that as you will. It's now been confirmed that it's slated for limited release in a few theaters in New York City on February 3, 2004 (that's tomorrow, the same day that Patrick's film, The World's Fastest Indian comes out, but somehow I don't think there's gonna be much overlap in their demographics). Then it opens in the top 20 markets February 17, 2006 for wider, but still limited, release, and will see a DVD release later on in the spring. See the trailer, gallery (which includes 2 pictures of Chad), and, um, win a date with the lead actress (?!) at the official web site.

Chad's signed on for a second movie, the Rosario-Dawson-produced Descent for later this year, too - more info as I get it!

See Patrick 20 feet high this Friday

The Anthony Hopkins film in which The 4400's Patrick Flueger ("Shawn Farrell") has a tertiary role, The World's Fastest Indian, is opening to glowing reviews this Friday, February 3, 2006. It opened in a few select US theaters in December 2005, and this time around it's getting only "limited" release as well. It's not that limited though - the web site has well over 100 theaters that are showing it.

Check the official site (which doesn't mention Patrick! *sob*) to see if it's playing at a theater near you, and feel free to send in your reviews. It's playing in Miami Beach, where I'm at, so I may check it out myself this weekend too. W00t.

S3 Season Premiere Spoilers!

SpoilerFix has an episode description for the as-yet untitled Season 3 premiere, expected to air some time in early summer 2006. It can be found here - you have to scroll a bit toward the bottom and click on The 4400 to see it. It picks up directly where the awesome S2 finale left off, and there is one minor general-season spoiler for S3 there as well.
