Chris Carter Film Is Covert Operation

Chris Carter, the creator of “The X-Files,” knows a thing or two about secrets. So it’s no surprise that he has managed to keep his latest film project under wraps for so long. Carter is in the midst of directing “Fencewalker,” a dark drama starring several up-and-comers, including “The Tudors” star Natalie Dormer; David Cassidy’s daughter, Katie Cassidy; rapper-turned-actor Xzibit; and Derek Magyar and Mehcad Brooks. Neither Carter’s reps at ICM nor the actors’ reps would confirm that the film is shooting, but the story is essentially a coming-of-age semiautobiographical character piece with no supernatural elements. (After “X-Files,” Carter created the similarly spooky series “Millennium,” which ran for three seasons on Fox.) The feature is shooting in the Los Angeles area, including in Carter’s hometown of Bellflower. Dormer appeared in 2005’s “Casanova,” while Cassidy was a regular on TV’s “Supernatural.” Xzibit appears in Carter’s upcoming “The X-Files: I Want to Believe,” while Magyar is in post on the horror thriller “Train.” Check out the link below for the rest...

Supernatural’s

Girl power? On Supernatural? Pshaw. When executive producer Eric Kripke first announced he was bringing two women into the boys club that is Sam and Dean Winchester, let’s just say the fans were, um, skeptical. But after seeing newcomers Katie Cassidy and Lauren Cohan kick some serious butt the past few weeks, most Super fans I know have to admit: These ladies aren’t so bad after all. So, who are these femme fatales shaking the Supernatural scene? Listen in as Katie Cassidy (Ruby) and Lauren Cohan (Bela) tackle the Q’s fans are asking… Supernatural has many loyal followers who were a bit wary of you two when news of your characters first broke. Were you surprised by that? Lauren Cohan: I was surprised. Especially after Katie and I did our first interviews and the [online reaction] was like, “Oh, they seem nice, maybe we should give them a chance.” I hadn’t realized we were up there on the chopping block. I have to say, though, I find it really nice that the fans are so dedicated and care that much about the show. I think they were wary about women coming in and changing the dynamic of the series, but it is still very much the boys’ show. I think we are just here to cause trouble and present some more challenges for the wonderful Winchesters to beat. Katie Cassidy: Yeah, I did a couple of those interviews after we were first cast, and I don’t know, I guess I said something like, “Those boys are really cute, I wouldn’t mind…,” and I was joking, but then I realized, oh crap, these fans might take it out of context. I obviously didn’t know anything at that point! So, it was definitely a shock, but I think now that they’ve seen our characters and how we are incorporated into the...

“Lying” Starlet’s Boozy Bust

Katie Cassidy gave cops phony name…of fellow Hollywood actress NOVEMBER 15–Nabbed for underage drinking, a young starlet lied about her identity to arresting officers because she was a “Hollywood actress” and news of her bust “would not look good.” When Katie Cassidy, 20, was popped two weeks ago by Tucson, Arizona cops following a 2:15 AM traffic stop, she claimed to be Taylor Quinn Cole, a 23-year-old actress. Cassidy, the daughter of former teen heartthrob David Cassidy, stars in the CW show “Supernatural” and has reportedly been cast as Lucy Ewing in the film version of “Dallas,” the former hit TV series. Cole has guest-starred in “Supernatural” and appeared in the former WB series “Summerland.” According to Tucson Police Department reports, copies of which you’ll find below, Cassidy was riding in a Chevy truck driven by a 19-year-old male when the vehicle was pulled over for moving violations on October 30. She appeared drunk when quizzed by cops, who noted her slurred speech, clumsy movements, and booze breath. While Cassidy’s blood alcohol content was redacted from reports released by police, a source familiar with the arrest said that her BAC was .16, twice the legal limit. Cassidy, a West Hollywood resident, told cops she lived in Vancouver and was not carrying any identification. She claimed her name was Taylor Quinn Cole and that she was 21. Asked her date of birth, Cassidy replied, “4-29-84.” An officer then told her that date would have made her 23. That’s when Cassidy confessed, “Okay, Okay, I lied to you–that wasn’t my real name.” [The 1984 date Cassidy offered is Cole’s actual birth date.] Cassidy told police that she lied about her identity because she was scared and, according to one report, “She said that she is a Hollywood actress and that this would not look good for her.” Cassidy acknowledged that she...
