||[18 Oct 04] *** Richard guests
on new ABC drama, "Desperate Housewives" -- airs Sundays at 9:00pm ET/PT
*** -- Richard will appear in the October 17th episode, "Pretty
Little Picture," playing Karl, the ex-husband of Teri Hatcher's
character, Susan Mayer. Richard was working on "Desperate Housewives"
during the week of August 2nd. Karl could become a recurring character.
The episode will encore on Saturday, October 23rd at 10:00pm.
Interestingly, one of Richard's scenes with Teri Hatcher has been used
in promo spots advertising the new series. Karl pays an unexpected visit
to his ex and catches her in the shower. They argue and he departs, Susan
trailing behind him wearing nothing but a towel. Naturally, the towel gets
caught in the car door as Karl pulls off, leaving poor Susan scrambling
about like Eve in search of a few fig leaves.
The Futon Critic website gave
this description of the show:
"A primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on 'happily ever
after,' 'Desperate Housewives' takes a darkly comedic look at suburbia,
where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem.
Looking down on her friends and family isn't a way of life for Mary
Alice Young... it's a way of death. One day, in her perfect house, in the
loveliest of suburbs, Mary Alice ended it all. Now she's taking us into
the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated

||[18 Oct 04] *** "Point Pleasant"
gets 12-episode order from FOX, goes into production in November for possible
February 2005 premiere *** -- FOX's supernatural drama "Point Pleasant"
is now slated to go into production in November. The show will be based
in San Diego, CA. FOX has greenlighted a 12-episode order (13 including
a re-shoot of the pilot). The series could premiere as early as February,
according to FOX's Point Pleasant presentation at MIPCOM, joining the Thursday
night schedule in the 9:00pm timeslot.
The foxnow.com website
offers a detailed -- and tantalizing -- description of the show:
"The quiet beach community of POINT PLEASANT is about to get much
louder when a sudden, violent storm washes in more than the tide. Local
lifeguard Jesse spies Christina [Elisabeth Harnois] floating in the sea
and immediately dives in to save her life. He takes her to the home of
Dr. Ben Kramer [Richard Burgi], whose daughter Judy and wife Meg take an
immediate liking to Christina. For Christina, Point Pleasant offers both
respite from her protected boarding-school existence in New York, and the
opportunity to search for her mother, Ann - who, surprisingly, grew up
in the area but has never been a part of Christina's life. Aside from the
Kramers' fondness for her, and Jesse's budding attraction, it seems that
secret desires, repressed feelings and heightened emotions inexplicably
begin to flare when Christina is near. Christina never knew her mother,
and doesn't realize that she's never truly known her father, either. Christina
is the offspring of a mortal woman and the Devil - and although she doesn't
know it, the battle for her soul has begun."
Richard spent part of March 2004 working on the pilot. Described
as "a cross between
'Peyton Place' and The Omen," as well
as "a gentler Rosemary's Baby on the Jersey shore," the supernatural
series focuses on a mysterious girl (Christina, played by
Harnois), who washes ashore one day after a shipwreck.
Cast breakdowns give the following description of Ben: "A local
physician who shares his seaside home with his wife and daughter, he feels
uneasy about the young girl whom he's taken into his home. But, after seeing
the growing bond his wife and daughter have with Christina, Ben decides
not to push the matter - not just yet anyway. The role is listed in his
late 40s and the doctor is described as intelligent and confident."

||[18 Oct 04] *** "A rose
by any other name..." Richard's "Wheelmen" hits Scandinavian rental market
*** -- "Wheelmen" joined the Scandinavian rental market in June of
this year. The Region 2 DVD has been retitled "The Limo Boys," with
the one-sheet based DVD artwork reflecting the name change and a somewhat
different emphasis on actor credits.
A Google search for "The Limo Boys" produces a list of DVD rental websites
throughout Northwestern Europe, with the DVD presently targeted at the
Scandinavian market (while the audio is apparently still in English, the
subtitles are in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish on the Nordisk
Assuming this DVD follows the path of most rental titles, it is likely
"The Limo Boys" will soon enter the retail market.

Staged by the non-profit Motion Picture Industry Charitable Alliance,

||[18 Oct 04] *** Cellular now in
fifth week of theatrical run, earns good ratings from reviewers and "two
thumbs up" from Ebert and Roeper *** -- If you've not yet seen Richard
Burgi on the Big Screen, now's your chance. The New Line Cinema thriller
premiered on September 10th and was met with good ratings and reviews.
Roger Ebert, writing for the Sun
Times, gave Cellular 3 1/2 stars and called it "...one of
the year's best thrillers." Ebert also said of the film:
"The movie is skillfully plotted, halfway plausible and well acted;
the craftsmanship is in the details, including the astonishing number of
different ways in which a cell phone can be made to function -- both as
a telephone, and as a plot device."
**Cellular meets opening weekend box-office projections** --
Cellular took in some $10.2 million during its first weekend in theaters,
which put it on target for New Line projections. The four-week gross was
** Latest revision of Cellular site features image and audio files
of Richard as Craig Martin ** -- The Cellular website has been upgraded
considerably with Macromedia Flash features -- images, sound files, and
actor biographies, to name a few.
The site is navigated by use of a satellite image of the Los Angeles
Metro area. Hotspots are marked with red and white triangles, and these
correspond to key locations in the movie -- the Martin's Brentwood home;
the police station; LAX, where the bad guys grab Craig Martin (Richard
Burgi); the Santa Monica pier; and, of course, the house in which
Jessica Martin (Kim Basinger) is imprisoned by the kidnappers.
The LAX sub-page includes an image of Richard's Craig Martin being led
away by Jason Statham's character, and the Brentwood sub-page plays Craig's
voicemail message warning Jessica to get out of the house.
Official Cellular website: http://www.cellularthemovie.com/
Richard completed principal photography on the action-oriented
thriller Cellular in late November '03, playing the supporting role
Craig Martin, husband of kidnap victim Jessica Martin (Kim
Basinger). Cellular was written by Larry Cohen and directed
by David Ellis. Filming on the Los Angeles-based feature ran from
September through November '03, with some additional filming done in early
Cellular stars Kim Basinger as Jessica Martin, with Richard Burgi
as Craig Martin, Chris Evans as Ryan Hewitt, William H. Macy as Bob Mooney,
Jason Statham, and Jessica Biel as Chloe. The Cellular page at the
Internet Movie Database -- http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0337921/
-- gives the following summary:
"A young man (Evans) receives a call on his cellular phone from a
woman (Basinger) who says she's been kidnapped, and thinks she's going
to be killed soon, along with her husband and son who the kidnappers have
gone after next. The catch? She doesn't know where she is... and his cell
phone battery might go dead soon."

European (Region 2) viewers can pre-order the Decoys DVD from
www.play.com website, which lists an October 4th release date.
The SciFi Channel's broadcast of Decoys made the "What to Watch"
listing in the June 25/July 2 issue of Entertainment Weekly, earning
a C grade and the following review:
"Everyone always talks about how hot college chicks are, but what
about the ones working the other side of the thermometer? You know, the
ones from outer space. The ones who seduce young human males before freezing
them from the inside out during sex. What about them?!? Well, they finally
get their due in this goofy horror flick. Mild-mannered college student
Luke (North Shore's Corey Sevier) meets two cool babes in the laundry room,
but realizes something is amiss when he finds a Yanni CD in their room.
His suspicions are confirmed when tentacles burst out of their chests.
You may be the one who dies laughing."
Writer and director Matt Hastings is reported to be working on
a sequel or sequels to Decoys. Such sequels would supposedly follow the
men who successfully mated with the outer space sirens and gave birth to
their own little bundles of tentacled joy. (Which would explain why poor
Detective Kirk was constantly clearing his throat and pulling at his collar
at the end of Decoys...)

Vincent Hunter *** -- With CBS having dropped "The District"
from the Fall 2004 schedule, the USA Network has picked the show
up for syndicated broadcast starting in September. USA will air the show
weekdays (Mon-Fri) at 11:00am, 12:00noon, and 6:00pm ET/PT, with an additional
airing at midnight on Saturdays.
Richard's episodes airing in October are:
- Oct 25 -- 6:00pm -- "The D.C. Strangler"
- Oct 26 -- 10:30am -- "The D.C. Strangler"
Richard appeared in three of the show's four seasons in a total
of twelve episodes, playing the recurring role of the prickly and suspicious
Vincent Hunter, head of the DC Police Department's Internal Affairs
Unfortunately, the show did not take maximum advantage of the Hunter
character, though they established an intriguing back-story for him in
the first season episode "The DC Strangler." Ella Farmer (played by
the late Lynn Thigpen) told Chief Mannion (Craig T. Nelson)
a bit about Hunter. He was a highly-decorated officer with a relatively
high solve rate while in Homicide, a department he left after discovering
his wife -- also a police officer -- in bed with his partner..

now in post-production, aiming for April 2005 release *** -- In
Her Shoes has finished principal photography and is now in the post-production
phase. Current reports have mentioned April 2005 as a possible premiere
date for the film.
In Her Shoes stars
Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette, and Shirley
MacLaine. Richard joined the cast in February and "wrapped out" in
mid April with some location scenes in Philadelphia. Richard plays
Danvers, one of Rose's (Collette) love interests. According to
the character breakdown, Danvers is "a handsome, suave attorney at the
law firm of Lewis, Dommel and Fenick. He's also a cold-hearted ladies man
who dumps women without thinking twice."
Based on the Jennifer Weiner book of the same title, In Her Shoes
was screenwritten by Susannah Grant and is directed by Curtis
Hanson. Rebecca Klein, writing for The
Action Insider, gives this brief description of the film's premise:
"This feature film from Fox 2000 will star Cameron Diaz as Maggie
Feller, a free-spirited but immature party girl who dreams of stardom.
She moves in with her career-oriented older sister Rose after getting evicted
from her own apartment.
Sibling rivalry follows when Rose kicks Maggie out after she trashes
the apartment and sleeps with Rose's boyfriend."
Shirley MacLaine plays Ella Hirsch, Maggie and Rose's grandmother.
Feuerstein plays Simon Stein, another love interest for Rose, while
Howard plays Michael Feller, Rose and Maggie's father.

charity, the Friends of the Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center (FSLMMC), has

A recent letter from the MMC (excerpted below) details the name change:
"With the expansion of our responsibilities to include cetacean rehabilitation,
as well as the expansion of our education programs to include a broader
curriculum, we have made the decision to take a leap and give ourselves
a name that more fully reflects what we do -- Pacific
Marine Mammal Center.
We are excited about the new name, as it is more reflective of our
work with all marine mammals, as well as of the ever-expanding scope of
environmental education programs we offer. We have big plans for the next
couple of years including a renovation of our upstairs education area and
the reconstruction of our outdoor pools and pens to accommodate our steadily
growing patient load and improve the water quality for the animals.
We are very proud of our history, founders, board members, staff,
and volunteers, included. Who would have thought that the rescue of that
first tiny harbor seal pup 33 years ago would have such an impact on the
lives of the thousands of marine mammals that we have given a second chance
at life? We are so grateful to those of you who are long-time donors and
to those of you who are new friends. It is your support that has allowed
us to build our solid foundation and to provide our quality animal care
and education programs over the years. You can be assured that the core
values and vision of our organization will always remain the same."
