News and Rumours

As of Dec 8, 1999
Okay, I am so sorry that it's been so long! I've got a ton of new info to tell you about. Almost all of it comes from the wonderful Raydelle. Thank you so much!!!! :)

-According to the August issue of Movieline magazine, Jerry is being considered, along with other actors like Chris O'Donnell and Brendan Frasier, to play the roll of a married major league shortstop who falls in love with his second baseman. The movie is based on the book "The Dreyfus Affair: A Love Story," by Peter Lefcourt.

- If you would like to check out the Body Shots web page (and I would suggest doing so, it's very cool!) go here.

-Mission to Mars has a web page up. It is REALY cool and you can watch the trailer. This looks like a very cool movie! The page is here.

-According to an Irish site called Popscene, Jerry will play Freddy in a live action Scooby Do movie! You can go see what they say about the movie and who will be playing the other roles. It's very interesting but I'm not sure it's a reliable source…

-"Varsity Blues" director Brian Robbins is apparently in negotiations to direct Jerry's movie First Daughter. Rob Thomas has been hired to rewrite Jerry's script. The movie is scheduled to start shooting in the spring.

-Man, is Jerry busy! The boy needs to take a break! Newa… he will co-star with Bridgette Wilson ("The House on Haunted Hill", "Love Stinks", "I Know What You Did Last Summer") and Ryan Reynolds ("Two Guys and a Girl") in the romantic comedy "Buying the Cow". He will play a guy who's girlfriend of 5 years demands that he marry her or they're through. They are currently filming in LA. Produced by Destination Films, written by Walt Becker and Peter Nelson and directed by Walt Becker.

-A bit more info about Jerry's script writing debut. The film is called First Daughter and is a romantic comedy about a president's daughter who falls in love with one of her body guards who is posing as a student at her school…or something… Jerry will play him. I don't think any of the other parts have been cast yet. The production company is New Regency Films who apparently bought the script for six figures. There may, however, be some legal problems with the title "First Daughter" because there was a TNT movie with the same title. More info on that when I get it.

-Production for First Daughter has been postponed while Jerry films Disney's Mission to Mars about a crew sent to rescue the first team sent to Mars when something goes wrong. It will start filming in July. It also stars Gary Sinise, Tim Robbins, and Don Cheadle. The director is Brian DePalma. It is slated for release in summer of 2000. I'm still looking for info on this one but I'll let you know when I get it.

-Jerry's movie Jello Shots (which I believe has been changed to Body Shots) is set to be released on October 22.

-I'm sure you all know this already but just in case you don't, Sarah Michelle Gellar stated a while ago on the Howard Stern show that she and Jerry are not dating.

-For all us Canadian Sliders fans, Global has started airing new eps in it's old time slot - Friday at 8:00…man, that takes me back…:)
