06/08/01 ~ Pasty Faces, staring ChloŽ
ChloŽ Annett, aka Kochanski, stars in a new British film named
Pasty Faces. ChloŽ plays Lena, a gun-toting, casino-haunting thief. The film centres

be. Go to the The Official

16/03/01 ~ Lister & Holly in
With a curious echo of the last series of Red Dwarf surely in mind, the producers of
cult SF show Lexx - currently screening in the UK on Channel 5 - have placed Hattie
Hayridge and Craig Charles into their coming fourth series.
Heidi, a Texan prison warden, with Craig appearing as her husband - albeit without
the Texan accent - in the episode P3X. "It was good," Hattie said, "because I'd never
acted with him that way before (as Holly) I was always in my separate
Asked how this bizarre partnership came about, Craig said, "I think
Hattie was offered the part originally, and once she'd said yes to it, they thought they'd
make it sort of a Red Dwarfy tie in. Hattie plays this Texan - a cross between Jerry
Hall and Daphne from A Streetcar Named Desire - and I play this English governor in
a Texan jail. I'm the warden, she's my sub-warden and my wife. We've got this
daughter who is completely insane..."
Did he know what he was letting
himself in for? "Lexx is like S&M meets science fiction It's a very sexy show - I felt
like a dirty old man half the time. During the filming, sometimes I just thought, 'I
hope my wife doesn't see this'."
Hattie agrees, "They said it was the most
risquť one they'd done - half-naked men holed up in dungeons. Naked women in the
showers in the women's prison..."
Hattie remembers the costume being
particularly fun, "The costume woman said, 'Oh, you're much thinner than I thought
you'd be. Maybe we'll change it when you get over here...' She was imagining a great
big, fat Texan! I was meant to be wearing trousers and a shirt - it was a little bit Cell
Block Hy. But when we got there, me and the make-up women and the costume
women got together, all girly, and made her a bit more Dolly Parton! It's still prison
uniform, but I wear a shirt that's two sizes too small and a really short skirt. They
curled my hair up - just a few curls, my own hair."
"Hattie is horrible in it!"
Craig insists. "She's horrible - the wife from hell. She's really mean - the wife from
hell! She constantly insults me." Hattie agrees: "It's a marriage not made in heaven.
We were thinking, 'Where would we have met?' Because I'd obviously never been out
of Texas. He must have been passing through when we met, and
But perhaps the most memorable part of the shoot was the
weather. "Halifax, Nova Scotia - the coldest place I've ever been," Craig shudders. "It
was like minus 20 over there! They had the worst recorded level of snowfall since
records began while we were over there. It was great - like a big winter
Although - Craig being Craig - there is one other abiding
memory, "All the cast are really nice. Michael McManus is a nice fella. Didn't really
socialise with the girl who plays Zev. She's got remarkable lips. They can't be real!
Apparently one of the cameramen was saying that sometimes they cast

20/01/01 ~ Danny John-Jules signs up for Blade 2
Danny John-Jules (aka Cat) has recently signed up for the sequel to the
smash hit vampire action movie Blade. Blade 2:Bloodlust, will again feature Wesley
Snipes as the half-man, half-vampire out for revenge. The plot apparently centres
around a group of mutated vampires who will even feed off their own kind, thus
threatening both the human and vampire populations.
The film will be
directed by Guillermo del Toro, who has already scared the pants off audiences with
Cronos, the tale of a kind of vampiric clockwork insect, and the Mira Sorvino sci-fi
Danny is just a part of the largely European flavour the film
is taking.Aside from del Toro, Alien: Resurrection's multi-lingual Ron Pearlman and
Britain's own Luke 'Bros' Goss are also slated to appear alongside Snipes and Kris
Kristofferson, who reprises his role of Whistler, even though he was killed off in the
Shooting of the million movie begins in the Czech Republic's
Prague Studios in the Spring.

20/01/01 ~ Rimmer in Tomb Raider
Chris Barrie (aka Rimmer) seems determined to get into the film business early as it
is announced that he will be taking a key role in the forthcoming Tomb Raider
blockbuster, based on the massively successful video game.
Lara Croft will be played by Angelina Jolie, the daughter of John Voight, who has
apparently undergone rigorous training and voice-coaching for the role. Chris will
play Hilary, Lara's butler.
Given this casting, it's hard to imagine the film will be taking itself too seriously.
Interviewed recently, Chris admitted, "I think there is a comic element to it."
The film like the game, will have more than a touch of the Indiana Jones's about it
and will be directed by Con Air helmer Simon West, who has put off directing The
Prisoner movie to take Lara on.
Asked how he became involved with the film, Chris said, "I went to see Simon West,
the director, early in the summer and we had a nice chat. He's a very down-to-earth
English guy, no airs and graces. We just chatted about it and I seem to remember him
saying that if anything came to mind as they were writing the screenplay, he'd bear me
"I'd forgotten about it, and I read somewhere that Tomb Raider was starting to shoot -
it reminded me that I'd been to the casting! I thought, 'Oh well, bang goes another one.
Hey-ho, such is life.' And lo and behold I get this call that they want me on board! So
you don't really ask questions about what went before. You just get there, hit your
marks and do your lines."
Director West has already admitted that he does not have a huge interest in video
games, and while Chris shares his lack of fascination, he does admit that, when
playing on a simulator recently at a corporate event, he was almost lured in: "The
jet-biking one I just couldn't get off! So I thought, 'I'm not going to have a go on the
other machines or games, otherwise I'm likely to be hooked!' For the first time ever
the virtual reality on the jet-bike really did hit home. In a few years time it's going to
Does he think he'll end up with one at home? "I reckon so!"
The film is currently in production at Pinewood Studios and is due for release next
