Corey 5

You may know Corey Stoll from his roles on The Strain, or Law & Order: LA, or House of Cards.  Or you may remember his face from flicks like Salt or The Bourne Legacy.  Personally, I absolutely LOVED him as Congressman Pete Russo in HOC.  I really couldn’t picture him in any other role–especially as the antagonist in the new Marvel movie, ANT-MAN (opens TOMORROW!!).  He totally nailed it as the diabolical villain.

As part of the ANT-MAN press junket that I went to a couple of weeks ago, I actually got to sit down with him  and Read more »

During my trip to LA, I actually got to visit the set of the new Disney XD shows, Gamers Guide to Pretty Much Anything–it premieres on July 22nd at 9:30pm.  Up until now, I’ve never gone on a set visit and wasn’t sure what to expect.  Whatever image I had of a show set was completely demolished.

But first, let me give you the premise of the show.  Disney Channel watchers will recognize Cameron Royce from the hit show Jessie–he plays Luke.  On Gamers Guide, he’ll star as Conor, a professional video gamer who is sent to regular high school (for the first time) after a thumb injury.  He becomes friends with 3 others (including a girl!!!), and the mayhem ensues.
