Mandela Van Peebles, Em Haine and Savannah Basley of "Reginald the Vampire" on Syfy

Interview with Mandela Van Peebles, Em Haine and Savannah Basley of “Reginald the Vampire” on Syfy by Suzanne 4/30/24

It was fun to speak to these actors again! Last time I spoke with them was for the TCA panel before season 1. This time I had more time with them, so that was great (although, not with the main star, Jacob Batalon, unfortunately). The show is a lot of fun. Even though it’s horror, it has a lot of humor. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. Enjoy these videos and don’t miss the season 2 premiere May 8 on Syfy!

Coming Soon to SYFY 

Reginald Andres finally got his life together – when he was turned into a vampire. While he doesn’t fit into the stereotypical expectations of what a vampire looks like – he’s not chiseled or classically handsome – Reginald has found his place amongst an unlikely cohort that includes the cool vampire who sired him, the former vampire chieftain turned unexpected ally (or is she?), and his co-worker/former girlfriend. A show with a lot of heart and just enough blood, “Reginald the Vampire” proves the undead life is just as complicated as life itself.

“Reginald the Vampire” is produced by Great Pacific Media Inc., Modern Story Company, December Films and Cineflix Studios and executive produced by Harley Peyton, Jeremiah Chechik, Todd Berger, Lindsay Macadam, Brett Burlock and Peter Emerson. The series is based on the book series by Johnny B. Truant.

Days Opinions For The Week Of April 22, 2024

Opinion Article

 

by Michele & Cheryl

Paulina from Days

Why was everyone judging Paulina for risking her life to save Chanel? They would have done the same thing she did to save their children. Steve risked going to prison to help break Clyde out of prison to save his son. The people in Salem should have understood why Paulina would leave the hospital to save her daughter. Paulina did risk her life, but Chanel wouldn’t have been rescued if it weren’t for her.

It took long enough for Eric to find out what was going on between Sloan and Leo. We’re not surprised it finally happened since Sloan never stops talking about it. It was only a matter of time before Eric got a clue and realized something was going on between Sloan and Leo. We guess Eric’s obsessiveness over her money paid off.

Brady cares about Kristen more than he’s letting on. If he didn’t care, why did he listen to her telling him about Alex and his relationship with Rachel? He wasted time talking to her when he could have left the mansion sooner. Brady does a bad job of showing that he doesn’t care about Kristen. He needs to stay away from her if he doesn’t have feelings for her. Brady is clearly torn between Kristen and Theresa.

Speaking of Brady, he and Nicole made up this week. It’s better to see them getting along as friends the way they used to. We enjoyed their friendship and missed seeing them getting along with each other. They didn’t work as a couple, but they do have a good friendship. We will see how long their friendship lasts before something else comes between them.

Why did Stephanie give herself credit for why Everett signed the divorce papers? She made Jada think she talked Everett into signing the papers. Stephanie could have told her Everett decided on his own because he wanted to have a chance with her. Clearly, she wanted to keep that bit of information to herself so Jada wouldn’t be upset with her.

Eric assumed Sloan was having an affair when he saw her charges. If she was having an affair, it would serve him right. He doesn’t treat Sloan right and puts Nicole ahead of her. Why wouldn’t Sloan have an affair? We know she’s not cheating on him, but he would deserve it if she were cheating. Also, why did Eric feel as if he could check into her bank account? It’s her account so he had no right investigating charges from her account.

Interview with Julian Works and Paulina Chávez

TV Interview!

 

Julian Works and Paulina Chávez star in the film "The Long Game."

Interview with Julian Works and Paulina Chávez of the film “The Long Game” by Suzanne 4/5/24

This is a really good movie, so you don’t want to miss it. It’s entertaining, it has great characters and acting, and it also has a lot of heart. It’s based on a true story, which gives it validity. Also, it resonates in today’s world, where there’s still a lot of prejudice against any immigrants, or any people with dark skin. I enjoyed speaking with stars Julian Works (who plays Joe Trevino) and Paulina Chávez (who plays his girlfriend, Daniela). You can also see Works in “9-1-1: Lone Star” – Season 5 premieres this Fall. I would have loved to speak to the other stars – Jay Hernandez, Dennis Quaid, Cheese Marin – as well. They all doing an outstanding job in the movie.

So when JB is rejected on the basis of his skin color, he is devastated. But his world soon collides with a group of young latino golf caddies who work at the country club, and JB is inspired by the handmade course the boys built in the country to teach themselves golf. With little experience and even fewer resources, JB convinces the boys to start their own high school golf team, starting them all on a journey where they learn that it takes more than just golf skills to make history.

Days Opinions For The Week Of April 1, 2024

Opinion Article

 

by Michele & Cheryl

Nicole from Days

We loved watching Brady ripping into Holly when she confessed to the drugs being hers. She deserved to hear his wrath because she was willing to let Tate be in trouble for her lie. Just because she lied to protect Nicole doesn’t change the fact that she didn’t tell the truth. Tate suffered because of her yet she acted as if she deserved sympathy. She didn’t deserve any sympathy.

Nicole managed to make Holly’s confession about her. Holly was right about Nicole blaming herself for what she did. Eric also made it about Nicole by comforting her. Nicole didn’t deserve any comfort after what Holly did. Holly also didn’t deserve any sympathy for what she did. She knew what she was doing and didn’t care that Tate was “suffering” in rehab because of her. Holly may have had a change of heart but that didn’t change what she did to him.

Eric needs to realize where his priorities lie. He chose to comfort Nicole and Holly after the confession as if they were the victims. If anything, he should have comforted Brady about Tate being wrongfully accused of giving Holly drugs. We know Holly considers Eric her father, but he is related to Tate. Where was Eric’s loyalty to Tate? Eric acted as if he couldn’t care less about Tate’s situation. His concern was making sure Holly was okay.

It doesn’t say much for the police force that Xander was able to solve who shot Harris by looking at a computer, but they turned up empty. The police should have done the same thing Xander did and looked at the computer. Maybe Xander should join the police force since he figured out what happened based on looking at a computer for a few minutes.

Why was Julie so willing to help Stephanie after what happened between her and Chad? Chad is the one linked to Julie through Abby, yet she keeps showing loyalty to Stephanie. We get that Stephanie needs someone to talk to, but it doesn’t have to be Julie. She has plenty of relatives in Salem she could talk to about her problems with Everett. Why would Stephanie talk to someone linked to Chad?

As much as we think Holly deserved the wrath, she received for what she did to Tate, Theresa didn’t have a right to judge her. Let us explain. Theresa accused Xander of raping her and he suffered for it. She also got JJ hooked on drugs. Let’s not forget that she let Alex think he was Victor’s son. She also helped Konstantin kidnap Sarah and Xander’s daughter. This list is just some of the things she has done in the past which means she shouldn’t judge Holly for what she did to Tate. Now that Tate fell victim to false accusations, it’s wrong to lie. Theresa is such a hypocrite.

Stephanie must not want to be friends with Jada the way we are supposed to believe. If she wanted to be friends with Jada, she would have stayed away from Everett. Stephanie doesn’t have to be his support system just because he doesn’t have anyone else in Salem. If she’s going to stand by his side, she may as well get back together with him. What was the point of breaking up with him if she’s going to support him? It will serve her right if she finds out something about his past she doesn’t like.

We applaud Nicole for not letting Holly off the hook for lying about Tate. Nicole wanted her to apologize and held her accountable for what she did. Holly deserved to be held accountable for lying about Tate. We thought Nicole would have let Holly manipulate her into feeling sorry for her, but she didn’t. Nicole stayed strong and let her have it without being too rough on her. She managed to hold Holly accountable without flying off the handle. If Nicole did go off on her, Holly would have used that as an excuse to do something else.

Interview with Barbara Niven of “One Bad Apple A Hannah Swensen Mystery” on Hallmark Mystery by Suzanne 4/3/24

Barbara Niven seems very sweet, and it was a delight to chat with her. I had a friend sitting nearby listening, and after the interview, she said, “Wow, she sounds really nice!” While it’s true that actors are good at hiding their feelings, and they’re paid to pretend, I think that Barbara’s real-life kindness comes through in her roles and interviews. She clearly has so much fun playing Delores in these movies. Delores is a little kooky, but she means well.  Make sure you watch the movie because it’s fun, and it’s a good mystery! It airs tonight, 4/5/24, as the 9th film in the series.

Days Opinions For The Week Of March 25, 2024

Opinion Article

 

by Michele & Cheryl

John from Days

Maybe it’s just us but we find it hard to believe that John was so broken up about killing Konstantin’s daughter. John has killed people in the past and some of them were probably innocent. Now he is suddenly so upset that he killed Konstantin’s daughter. Speaking of Konstantin, we find it hard to believe he forgives John for killing her. He was like a man on a mission trying to make John pay for what he did. Now suddenly Konstantin wants to forgive John. Since he still has the pawn card, Konstantin probably has plans to make John his pawn.

Was Theresa really angry about Alex was “dating” Kristen because she loved him or was she trying to hold on to her meal ticket? She was the one who didn’t want to be with Alex so she didn’t have a right to be upset that they could be together. Theresa should have thought about her plan before she decided to break up with him. She must have thought she could have things both ways.

Brady wasn’t acting like a man who wasn’t interested in Kristen. He seemed jealous at the idea of Alex being with Kristen. When Alex and Theresa got together, he seemed jealous that they were dating. Now that Alex is “dating” Kristen, Brady was jealous again. Does Brady secretly have feelings for both women? Brady is in denial about his feelings for Theresa and Kristen.

Eric proved he’s the worst husband in the world. We don’t know why Sloan would even want to be with him. Eric always puts Nicole ahead of her no matter what the situation is. We know Sloan is a kidnapper, but Eric doesn’t. He continues to put Nicole ahead of Sloan regardless of her feelings. Eric should think about his wife’s feelings instead of his ex’s. How would he feel if the shoe were on the other foot? He would expect Sloan to choose him over her ex.

Do the writers need to consult the soap bible so they can remember the history of the characters? The people in Salem tend to forget that they are related. Theresa referred to Sloan as Sloan Peterson as if they aren’t related through marriage. Tate referred to Johnny as Holly’s stepbrother as if they weren’t cousins. Johnny and Tate are linked more than Holly and Johnny, yet Tate acted as if Holly was closer to Johnny than he was.

We loved seeing Jada rip into Stephanie about Everett. At first, we thought Jada was being a little hard on Stephanie when she said she wouldn’t have hooked up with Everett if she knew he was married, but the longer they were talking, we were Team Jada. Jada was right about Stephanie standing by Everett’s side when Jada told her what he did to her. Stephanie was acting as if Everett needed her by his side just because he didn’t have anyone else in Salem. She didn’t care about her friendship with Jada. Jada doesn’t have family in Salem either, but Stephanie’s concern was Everett.

Why wouldn’t Eric’s siblings be at Jude’s christening? It’s not believable that Carrie and Rex would miss the christening. You would think the writers would have written an excuse for why none of them were there. It’s a safe bet that the christening wasn’t planned on short notice, so they had time to be there. We understand they aren’t on the show anymore, but they could have recasted them or made an excuse for why they are there.

Sonequa Martin-Green

Sonequa Martin-Green is a versatile actress who continues to evolve her impressive body of work with ground-breaking, complex roles and memorable performances across television, film and the stage.

Martin-Green will next be seen in Warner Brothers’ “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” starring alongside LeBron James and Don Cheadle. The film is a sequel to the 1996 film “Space Jam,” the highest-grossing basketball movie of all time.

Most recently, she starred in “The Outside Story,” a Brooklyn-based indie comedy-drama led by Brian Tyree Henry. “Billions” actor Asia Kate Dillon, Sunita Mani (“Glow”), Olivia Edward (“Better Things”) and Michael Cyril Creighton (“Spotlight”) also co-starred in the film, the directorial debut of writer/director Casimir Nozkowski. She also appeared in Netflix’s 2019 holiday film, “Holiday Rush.”

Martin-Green is widely known for her turn on AMC’s critically acclaimed, award-winning series “The Walking Dead,” where she captivated audiences in the role of the fierce and loyal Sasha Williams across five seasons. Additionally, she has taken many guest and recurring roles in fan-favorite television series. Most recently, she played prankster Rhonda on FOX’s “New Girl,” anti-magic Tamara on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”and aspiring paralegal Courtney Wells on CBS’ Emmy and Golden Globe-winning drama “The Good Wife.” She has also been featured in the CBS cop drama “NYC 22,” Lifetime’s “Army Wives” and the CW’s “Gossip Girl.

Previously, Martin-Green received rave reviews for her starring role in Emily Abt’s Sundance hit “Toe To Toe,” in which she played Tosha Spinner, a highly driven inner-city high school teenager. She was also featured in Victoria Mahoney’s film “Yelling to the Sky”alongside Gabourey Sidibe and Zoe Kravitz.

On stage, she is best known for her critically acclaimed performances in Des McAnuff’s “Fetch Clay Make Man,” where she starred as Muhammad Ali’s first wife, Sonji Clay. She also starred in off-Broadway’s “Outside People” at New York City’s Vineyard Theatre.

He also starred as the lead villain in “Hush,” an Emmy-winning episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” long considered a fan favorite. Doug was also a semi-regular guest judge on the hit SyFy Net reality series “Face Off.”

In 2005 he played the title role of Pan (as well as the nightmare character known as The Pale Man) in Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning Spanish language fantasy/horror feature “Pan’s Labyrinth.” But it was his sensitive and elegant performance as Abe Sapien in del Toro’s 2004 box office hit “Hellboy” that brought Doug’s unique work to a wider audience. He went on to voice that same character for the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network animations “Hellboy: Sword of Storms” and “Hellboy: Blood and Iron.” In 2007 Doug’s title role performance in “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” was hailed by fans and critics alike. 2008 saw Doug reprise his starring role (as well as two other characters) in “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” once more under the direction of del Toro.

Interview with Ryan Hansen

TV Interview!

 

Ryan Hansen, who guest-stars on "Night Court" as Judge Abby's boyfriend this week.

Interview with Ryan Hansen of “Night Court” on NBC by Suzanne 3/22/24

It was so much fun to speak with Ryan! I learned that he’s from San Diego, among other things. It was one of my best interviews, I think. I look forward to seeing him again on the show, 3/26/24, the season finale. It sounds like a great episode! Check out our cool video!

MORE INFO: Official Site Promo (Instagram) or Promo (Twitter)

NIGHT COURT -- "The Best Dan" Episode 213 -- Pictured: (l-r) Melissa Rauch as Abby Stone, Ryan Hansen as Jake -- (Photo by: Nicole Weingart/NBC)Ryan Hansen is an American actor. He was born in Fountain Valley, California, and raised in El Cajon, California, but has since moved with his wife, Amy Hansen, to Los Angeles. His wife is a former roommate of Kristen Bell (star of Veronica Mars (2004)). Hansen is involved in the campaign, “Invisible Children”, and has appeared in the online series, “The LXD”, of which 50% of the profits are going to the Invisible Children Campaign.

He is best known for starring as Dick Casablancas on the noir drama series Veronica Mars (2004–2019), as Kyle Bradway on the Starz comedy series Party Down (2009–2010, 2023–present), and as Nolan in the horror remake film Friday the 13th (2009). Hansen also had a recurring role on the comedy series 2 Broke Girls (2012–2017) and the web series Burning Love (2012–2013).

 

Night Court

The eternally optimistic Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch) follows in the footsteps of her revered late father, Judge Harry Stone, as she takes on the challenge of overseeing the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court.

Abby always sees the best in people and her passion for justice is undeniable. In her quest to bring order and dignity to the court and reign in its colorful crew of oddballs, she enlists former night court district attorney Dan Fielding (John Larroquette) to serve as the court’s public defender. Still exceedingly self-confident, Fielding must adjust to a new boss and a new job – defending the downtrodden. And, beneath his arrogant demeanor, there is an empathetic side to Fielding that Abby is determined to unearth.

They both must contend with Olivia (India de Beaufort), the court’s officious assistant district attorney. Driven and ambitious, she views the night court as a steppingstone on her way to bigger things. Donna “Gurgs” Gurganos (Lacretta) is the night court’s sharp-witted bailiff. Gurgs takes her job very seriously and is fiercely protective of her night court colleagues. Rounding out the staff is Wyatt Shaw (Nyambi Nyambi), the court’s new clerk. He’s a jack of all trades and devoted single dad trying to make it all work as a law student at the same time.

Days Opinions For The Week Of March 11, 2024

Opinion Article

 

by Michele & Cheryl

Tate and Holly from Days

Tate took the risk of going to see Holly so she could help clear his name. We get why he felt he needed to leave the rehab center to see her, but he shouldn’t have risked getting caught doing that. Did he really think no one was going to find him at the DiMera mansion? There was no way he was going to get away with seeing her without getting caught. He should have waited to see her.

Speaking of Holly, she was so selfish when she didn’t tell Nicole and EJ that Tate wasn’t the one who drugged her. She would rather have them think Tate drugged her instead of letting them know she wasn’t the saint they think she is. Holly was able to live with the fact that an innocent person was being punished for something she did. We don’t believe she doesn’t want to stress out Nicole. She’s looking out for herself.

Abe finally got his memory back this week. It was about time he got it back. We didn’t care for the way he got his memory back out of the blue. Lexie came to see Abe when Paulina was dying. After her visit, he suddenly got his memory back and Paulina was suddenly cured. We understand that the writers wanted us to believe that it was a miracle, but we didn’t buy it. They could have come up with a better way to have Abe and Paulina get their miracles.

What was the point of having Eli and Lani come back to Salem if they were going to write them off so soon? Why would Eli suddenly accept a promotion when he knows what his family is going through? He could have gotten his job back in Salem. The writers could have said Eli and Lani were staying temporarily. They didn’t have to have him accept a promotion.

Did the writers forget that Maggie has two children? When she and Konstantin were talking about her children, she only mentioned Sarah. She said she lost two children which means Melissa is still alive. Konstantin has no way of knowing about Melissa, so we didn’t expect him to mention her, but Maggie knows she has another daughter and forgot about her. Just because Melissa isn’t on the show anymore doesn’t mean she couldn’t mention her.

Beau Bridges, Rob Mayes, Stratton Leopold and William Wages of the film "The Neon Highway," which premieres March 15.

Interviews with Beau Bridges, Rob Mayes, Stratton Leopold and William Wages of the film “The Neon Highway” by Suzanne 3/6/24

This is such a good movie, and the actors did an amazing job. It was really great to speak with them, and the writer/director and producer. I grew up watching Lloyd, Beau and Jeff Bridges, so it was an honor to speak to Beau. This is a role that seems meant for him, and he excels in it. I hope people remember it come Oscar time next year.  I can’t believe he hasn’t won one already! He should have won for “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” at least.  The focus of the movie is Rob’s character, Wayne, and then we meet Beau’s character, Claude, and the two carry the movie. I’m glad it was not too depressing, either, because so many indie movies are. I hope you can check it out because it’s a really inspiring and human story. It also has some outstanding music. Enjoy the videos!  Rob is much more handsome in real life than he is in the movie! “The Neon Highway” premieres tomorrow, March 15, 2024.

Rob Mayes stars in "The Neon Highway," premiering March 15 in select theaters.Beau Bridges stars in "The Neon Highway," premiering March 15 in select theaters.

Interview with Nyambi Nyambi, India de Beaufort and Lacretta of “Night Court” on NBC by Suzanne 2/28Nyambi Nyambi, India de Beaufort and Lacretta of "Night Court" on NBC

It was great to speak with these actors. I never miss an episode of the show. I was a fan of the old series, too. I spoke with India before, and Lacretta not too long ago, but it was nice to catch up with them and meet Nyambi. Tomorrow night’s episode should be great fun! “Night Court” airs Tuesdays, 8/7c on NBC.

India de Beaufort (Olivia)

It was fun to speak with India again! She didn’t seem to have as much of a British accent as she did on our previous conversation. She is a great, multi-talented actress. We only had a few minutes, and she answered all of my questions very quickly.

Lacretta (Gurgs)

Lacretta is very sweet and fun!  We had a great chat, not only about her show but about “Star Trek!” She is down-to-earth, like talking to an old friend.

Nyambi Nyambi (Wyatt)

It was so nice to meet Nyambi, the “new guy,” and chat with him! They even let me go over the allotted time a little. He is a great addition to the cast.

"Night Court" key art

The eternally optimistic Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch) follows in the footsteps of her revered late father, Judge Harry Stone, as she takes on the challenge of overseeing the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court.

Abby always sees the best in people and her passion for justice is undeniable. In her quest to bring order and dignity to the court and reign in its colorful crew of oddballs, she enlists former night court district attorney Dan Fielding (John Larroquette) to serve as the court’s public defender. Still exceedingly self-confident, Fielding must adjust to a new boss and a new job – defending the downtrodden. And, beneath his arrogant demeanor, there is an empathetic side to Fielding that Abby is determined to unearth.

They both must contend with Olivia (India de Beaufort), the court’s officious assistant district attorney. Driven and ambitious, she views the night court as a steppingstone on her way to bigger things. Donna “Gurgs” Gurganos (Lacretta) is the night court’s sharp-witted bailiff. Gurgs takes her job very seriously and is fiercely protective of her night court colleagues. Rounding out the staff is Wyatt Shaw (Nyambi Nyambi), the court’s new clerk. He’s a jack of all trades and devoted single dad trying to make it all work as a law student at the same time.

From executive producer and writer Dan Rubin (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), “Night Court” is based on the original hit series that ran for nine seasons on NBC. Melissa Rauch and Winston Rauch executive produce through their After January Productions. Mona Garcea oversees for After January Productions and John Larroquette serves as a executive producer.

“Night Court” is produced by Rauch’s After January Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
