Exclusive Interview! Actress Christina Moore Is Definitely ‘Running Wild’

(PCM) While some actresses are satisfied with performing in their various movies, the multi-talented Christina Moore is also a noted comedian and screenwriter.

The lovely 43-year-old, who is best known for her roles on sketch comedy series MADtv and the TNT show “Hawthorne,” has written a compelling, and heartfelt screenplay for the film, “Running Wild.” The movie stars Sharon Stone, Tommy Flanagan, Jason Lewis, and Moore.

It is not surprising that Moore wrote such a riveting and compassionate movie. She has nearly a dozen film credits to her name and dozens of TV credits, including “90210,” “Castle,” “Last Man Standing,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Rules of Engagement.”

The recently-released film is about Stella Davis (Dorian Brown, a young widow who is faced with the loss of her family’s horse ranch after the sudden death of her husband, who kept their financial problems for her.

Ultimately, Stella saves her ranch by working with convicts to rehabilitate a herd of wild horses that wandered onto her property. Stela must find prejudice, greed, bureaucracy and vanity, to finally understand there is no better remedy for misfortune than helping another living creature.

In the way “Running Horses,” was written, Stella’s humanity for the horses, and the convicts, elevates this story to a memorable tale, which has many life lessons for all of us.

PCM: Please tell me why you wrote this movie, “Running Wild?”

Christina Moore: Hmmm. Our financer, Forrest Lucas, has a real heart for ranchers and The American Heartland, and knows that not farmer out there is Monsanto. He Came up with the premise and asked me what I could do to get that message out. Also, a friend of mine died in a car accident and his partner was reeling from the sudden loss. Around the same time we were at an auction when the real program involving inmates and wild horses came to my attention, and it all kind of came together.

PCM: It is extremely difficult to cope with that sudden loss, especially when Stella had no idea of her dire financial predicament following her husband’s death.

CM: Yes. This is a woman who needs to pull up her socks. When the convicts and the horse program comes to her, the story is going to be about universal themes and second chances.

PCM: I loved that despite all of the obstacles, Stella didn’t give up.

CM: Yes, I agree. So many of us figure we can borrow from our futures and figure they can pay it off one day. So her husband was protecting her from the truth, thinking if he could hang on then something would change and no one will ever know – which is not how it worked out.

PCM: There are many important life lessons, but what is one overall message?

CM: I definitely loved the idea of the message of redemption. There is a point that Sharon Stone’s character makes that these guys (the convicts) are just circling the drains. So the questions is, ‘Can people really change and make a complete life switch, if given the right program or assistance?’

PCM: What do you think is the answer?

CM: I am a hugely positive person, so I say yes.

PCM: Do you have a favorite of all the male characters in “Running Wild?”

CM: Since I wrote the movie I feel you are supposed to love all of your kids, but Tommy Flanagan – his character speaks to me really deeply.

PCM: He gets the girl in the end, right?

CM: Nope. Tommy gets the job – someone else gets the girl.

PCM: Talk about the horses that were the focus on the movie.

CM: Animals bring out the best of us so the biggest challenge ended up being a big blessing. We ended up adopting 10 horses from a holding pen that were undernourished and wild, so in a lot of scenes real legitimate cowboys and wranglers.

PCM: Give me an example of life imitating art in this movie.

CM: The horse named Aces was not a movie horse, Aces was a wild horse and a lot of what you see in the film, the bonding and the communication really took place. We were profoundly changed by working with these horses. I think maybe the greatest scenes were the magical ones involving the horses. These animals also work with special needs children, and adults, and battered women. It is a profound relationship. Horses can’t lie.

PCM: So do you feel that you were personally changed by this movie?

CM: Oh, my gosh! Yes. It was my first tie producing a movie, and even though I went to film school that was jumping into the deep end. I was inspired. This is what got me into acting in the first place. The idea of ‘let’s put a play on in the barn.’ So I loved watching the way the movie changed by all the artistry. The script came alive and the characters became three-dimensional. It changed again during the editing and post production. This was a bunch of committed artists coming together and it is bigger than I could ever have imagined it could be.

PCM: What’s next for you?

CM: I went on and produced another movie, “Pray For Rain,” starring Jane Seymour. It is set in the central valley of California during a horrific drought. It is a true wasteland that I lacking water. Entire communities have to get water shipped in via a tank. My husband, John, also write a movie in which I play Kevin Dillon’s wife.

PCM: What has been the reaction to “Running Wild,” so far?

CM: We are having a premiere in which I invited 30 of my closest friends. I am both excited and terrified about it. I am hoping everyone will love watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Exclusive Interview with David Duchovny! Talks Music, Touring, X-Files And More!

(PCM) David Duchovny, best known for portraying such iconic characters as Fox Mulder on The X Files and Hank Moody on Californication, will be embarking on his 2017 US Tour this February.

The two-time Golden Globe winner’s tour will include songs from his debut album, Hell or Highwater, as well as tracks from his next record, which is coming in in fall 2017. His music consists of self-penned tracks, firmly embedded in his uniquely lyrical, troubadour style.

“Making this record is a dream come true, but I never had this dream – it’s still a shock when I think about how all this music happened,” said Duchovny.  “What I do know is that I feel these songs represent the truest expression that I’ve ever been able to achieve and I look forward to sharing it with everyone.”

Tickets for the tour are available now– www.davidduchovnymusic.com

David took some time to chat with us about embarking on the 2017 tour, his upcoming new album, the possibility of more X-Files on the way and more!

Q: How happy are you to be back out on the road and testing out some of your new material?

David Duchovny: Yes, of course! We’ll be doing the “Hell or Highwater” album mostly, but there will be five or six songs from the new album that we already recorded, but we never really worked on as a live band. It’s going to be a lot of fun to put them up there and I think they are a little tougher and a little more musically produced than the first album. It’s been an interesting process to get them up on their feet live.

Q: How far along are you in the recording process for the next album?

DD: I’m done with the recording. We are really just rehearsing for live performance now.

Q: We were reading that the target release date for the upcoming album will be the fall of 2017, correct?

DD: Is it the fall? I was thinking the spring (laughs)  We’re done!

Q: What is the recording process like for you? Can you choose one or two songs in particular and tell me what the mindset was like when you were putting the album together?

DD: The second album differs quite a bit from the first album, as with the first album I probably had four songs that I left off of it. The second album is probably four songs from my first run at writing songs plus eight of the newer ones. I think there will be some similarities to the first one, but also a new direction and some new styles and some new lyrical obsessions as well which I hope will make it interesting. All of my songs start with a chord progression that I like and then hearing a melody over that, that I’ll hum and try to figure out some words for what I’m humming. With the second album I brought them earlier to my band rather than just finishing them alone. It was more of a collaborative effort with the new album.

I worked with Colin Lee and Pat McCusker and Pat will come up with whatever riff he thinks needs to be in there and Colin will work on the bridge or the harmonies and it will get away from me in a good way.

Q: Awesome. We felt the first album was very thought-provoking and it definitely brought out several different emotions. We don’t want to say it was all sadness because there were certainly some elements of joy in there. Have you gone in a different direction emotionally with the new album, because we feel all music invokes some kind of emotion.

DD: Yeah and I think most songs are sad and they can make you sad. The great thing about music is that somehow a sad song makes you happy. Some kind of magic happens. I will say that the unrelenting kind of bleakness that was in the first album is not there, as the second album has more light in it. Less rain, more light (laughs).

Q: How therapeutic is the creative process of writing music for you?

DD: It’s hard for me to gauge that. I think I rather view it as not therapeutic for me, but therapeutic for other people. I think what happens is, if my intentions are clear and pure and my talent is enough then a connection will be made and that’s therapeutic. The fact that I get to make a connection is therapeutic for me as well, especially in a live setting. What’s most therapeutic aside from the cathartic display of ones emotions or dealing with ones emotions for me is just the chance to be creative. You know, to lead a creative life and to keep creating stuff in different media. That to me is the only therapy I’ve ever really known.

If I get to be creative whether it’s as an actor, director, writer, or musician I feel better and hopefully other people feel better too when they consume it.

Q: Is it hard for you to switch hats? We know you’ve done some directing and you’ve written a book as well. Is creating music a different process?

DD: Yeah, it’s very different. Making TV or film is the most collaborative thing that I do because you have over 100 people who you are collaborating with easy, whereas, writing a novel is the least collaborative thing I’ve done. I mean I worked with an editor, but that’s when it’s done. Nobody has had one word to say about what I put down on my page, so between those two, the non-collaborative and the totally collaborative is music which is where I do spend time alone in my room writing songs, but then bring them to two or three trusted people and then collaborating it further and then turning it into something we can play in front of people professionally or even record.

Q: A show like “Californication” did a wonderful job at using music to push forward the storyline and used alternative versions of classic track. How involved were you in all of that?

DD: I wasn’t, but I guess my involvement was educating myself about Warren Zevon at the time because I had just kind of stumbled across him at the time I was doing the pilot. Tom Kapinos, whose the creator of the show, also didn’t know Zevon, so it worked out that we found out about Zevon as we were making the show and used a lot of his music during the show. In terms of the covers. that was all Tom. Tom is a big music fan and is an actual guitar player himself and Marilyn Manson was on the show and of course Lemmy from Motorhead was on the show and again that was all Tom being a huge music fan. I think the only song or songs I might of pitched was “High-Flying Bird” the Elton John song and a Zevon song at some point.

Q: Is it ever surprising to you which songs of yours that fans tend to gravitate towards?

DD: Yeah, I mean it’s always surprising what people relate to musically. That’s kind of the beauty of lyric writing in a song is you leave enough of it unsaid so that people can make it their own.

Q: What other upcoming projects do you have in the works for this year. We know the tour is getting ready to kick-off with dates on the west coast and some on the east coast as well.

DD: We are talking about doing more “X-Files” soon and then I have a couple of projects that are really in the beginning stages that I don’t have anything really interesting to say about at this time, but I want to do in the next couple years.

Q: Just for fun! How likely are we to see an “X-Files” musical episode. You know Mulder dueting with some aliens!

DD: (laughs) I don’t know about that, but I’m definitely going to pitch my own music for the soundtrack. We’ll see how far I get!

Vanessa Hudgens Talks ‘Powerless’ NBC’s New Superhero Comedy Sitcom

(AOTN) It is not very often that some lightheartedness gets dropped within the DC Universe, however NBC’s new half-hour comedy sitcom “Powerless” is poised to do just that! Set in a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.  The series also stars Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk and Ron Funches.

We had a chance to view the pilot episode as well as catch up with “Powerless” star Vanessa Hudgens. This may just be the first time that we have seen a super-hero sitcom and the pilot episode certainly had us cracking a smile several times throughout the episode. Superhero fans will appreciate the tongue-in-cheek references and subtle puns which are smartly used throughout the episode. This is definitely a trend we would like to see continue throughout the series.

It was great to see the superhero/supervillain universe from a different angle being more about the people (or innocent bystanders) that are effected by the shenanigans and destruction caused when supers run array. If the pilot episode is any indication, “Powerless” may border on being hokey, but it was still good fun and we hope that fans will give it a fighting chance.

While out at San Diego Comic Con promoting the series Vanessa Hudgens spoke about her character Emily Locke saying, “She takes pride in what she does and thinks she’s making a difference in the world with one person at a time. She is fed up with the superheroes acting so recklessly in Charm City. She takes a stand for herself and talks back to a superhero. “

Hudgen’s goes to say, “It’s really about her finding her own power as a person”.

When speaking about what excited her about the role, Hudgens tells us, “The fact that it’s DC Comics first comedy is a really cool thing to be a part of and also my favorite TV shows are “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” which are the workplace comedies that NBC does so well! The fact that it’s going to be under their umbrella makes me so proud.”

Hudgens describes working with Alan Tudyk by saying, “I’m always in such awe when he is working because he’s so smart. That’s the thing with comedians … they are smart people and so quick! He just comes up with these things on the spot and I don’t even understand how your brain goes there in that split second and it comes out, but he’s amazing and such a nice guy. I feel so blessed to be working with such comedic geniuses.”

As she continues to explore the character Hudgens reveals that what she is surprised to learn about herself is “just how hard comedy is”, she says with a laugh. She continues, “It’s not really something I’ve done a lot of. It’s one thing when you are being funny with your friends, but another thing when there’s a massive crew staring at you and waiting for it to all go down so they can go home. I’ve been learning a lot about timing and I treat everyone like I’m a five year old like ‘explain to me why you would do that’ and I’m trying to learn as much as I can.”

When talking with the writers of the series, Hudgens said they asked her what her biggest flaw was and she revealed that she feels she may be too trusting. She says, “I want to trust people so badly and you want to see the best in people!”

Speaking about the tone of “Powerless” in comparison to shows such as “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” Hudgens comments, “I could only hope they would be similar. It’s the same thing … just your mundane lives working in an office from 9 to 5 and what happens within that, except with our show its set within a world full of superheroes and supervillains. We get to explore that and I feel that it really hasn’t been tapped into at all. What is the reality of living in a world full of superheroes and supervillains?  Like, how about surge pricing for Uber during a battle … you know stuff like that … it’s really funny!”

Hudgens goes on to reveal that acting in “Powerless” is much more of an adult role for her, as she is used to seeing herself as a high school student or a troubled teen runaway who is a drug addict and she says, “It’s nice to play an adult who has her stuff together. It’s the simple things, like walking down a hallway carrying a mug … I was very excited about that!  It’s the little things excite me!”

Hudgens joked saying “I’m still waiting!” when asked if she had a crash course in the massive DC Universe.  She adds, “I would not mind it. I’m sure Comic Con is the right place for someone to give me a lesson.  I was not much of a comic book person growing up. I mean I did go through a phase where I dressed up like Catwoman everyday when I was around six years old.”

We told her that gets her some geek cred to which Hudgens replies, “I still have to do a lot of homework, because if I’m the head of things, I have to know what I’m approving”.  When asked what her hopes are for Emily in the first season, Hudgens tells us, “I hope she learns to stand-up for herself in a way that is a little more politically correct. I think right now she is stumbling around trying to find her power and in doing so, stepping on peoples toes. Which is a really adorable and endearing way to do it! It would be nice if she got a little savvy about it!”

When speaking about her upcoming projects, Hudgens says, “I like to keep things as diverse as possible. As long as I can keep finding things that scare me, I am definitely up for the challenge”.

More X-Files On The Way? Seems Likely According To Actor David Duchovny

(AOTN) Fans of the cult-hit FOX series “The X-Files” were overjoyed when it was revealed that the series would be making a comeback in terms of a limited “event” series, however were slightly disappointed when it turned out to be only a six-episode run. At the time it seemed that the “X-Files” reboot was possibly only a one time deal and we may never hear from our beloved Mulder and Skully again once the “event” series reached it’s conclusion.

However, fans of the series know that the ending of the “X-Files” reboot was left very open ended and it certainly left fans with the hope that there could be the possibility for additional episodes in the future. The reason for such a shortened season had a lot to do with the schedules of both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and series creator Chris Carter. They would have liked the ability to do more episodes, however from a scheduling stand-point it was not feasible at the time.

During FOX’s 2016 TCA panel,  Fox Broadcasting Company Entertainment President David Madden praised the “X-Files” reboot and said that the network would “absolutely love to do another season”. He went on to add, “There are significant talks going on with all three of the principals. Schedules are hard but we’re working hard to get this done.”

That news has been further confirmed by actor David Duchovny who commented in an upcoming interview with PopCultureMadness.com that “We’re looking to do more “X-Files” soon”! Since FOX has had so much success with musicals recently, they joked about the possibility of an “X-Files” musical, perhaps even having Mulder dueting with some aliens.  Duchovny joked, “Yeah, I don’t know about that, but I do plan to pitch my own music for the soundtrack. We’ll see how far I get!”  Duchovny is currently about to hit the road touring behind his debut album release “Hell Or Highwater” and is super excited about the release of his follow-up album later this year!

It is the hope of both the network and fans that we will get a bit longer of a season if the “X-Files” makes a return, as the plan would be for an eight to ten episode season rather than only six. It has been proven time and time again that a network does not need a full 22 episode season run to create a successful series and overall popularity and cult-following for a series such as the “X-Files” truly makes this one a no-brainer for the network!
