Lane Davies singing


We already had the chance to discover Lane Davies as a singer, however we ignored that he was planning to reiterate the expérience ! In 1989, Lane made himself being heard in many variety shows on the French television with his song All I Need. A little success we thought would never have any continuation.

And here is that during a chat with his fans on his official website, the actor announced to be in contact for a new album with... some Russian producers ! This album could be composed of Christmas songs, but nothing is confirmed for the moment yet.

Listen to John O'Hurley


John O'Hurley (ex-Stephen Slade) made himself a speciality these last years of the doubling of animated characters (Duck Dodgers, Kim Possible, SpongeBob SquarePants, Hey Arnold !..., see the News of September 2002). Today, it is for the animated series Father of the Pride that he lends his voice, at the sides between others of John Goodman. The show began at the end of August on NBC.
After the failure the last season of his show The Mullets (see the
News of November 2003), John shot Zero Principal, a movie this time, which should be released in 2005 in the Unites States.

Jed Allan charmed by Russia


According to the site of the Russian newspaper Pravda, Jed Allan would have succumbed to the calls of Russia to go to shoot there a movie in the weeks to come. In Real Moscow, or the Adventures of an American in Russia, he will be an American journalist charged to write an idyllic picture of the Russian city. Directed by Alexander Izotov, the film is for the moment in pre-production. After Lane Davies (see the News of October 2002), Jed is the second actor of Santa Barbara to accept to come to play comedy in Russia, a country where the show knew a big success near the televiewers.

On another hand, the release of his autobiography, Please, Spell the Name Right !, initiall planed in July (see the News of July), was postponed to a further date always indefinite. Jed is since March one of the main actors of the soap General Hospital (see the News of March).

Lane Davies and Nancy Lee Grahn forces attention on the web


Two new sites arrived on the web these last weeks : : A Nancy Lee Grahn Website and Lane Davies Online. As their name indicate it, each of them is dedicated to one of the interpreters of one of the mythical couples of the show, Julia and Mason. The first one proposes many informations on Nancy Lee Grahn, rather based on her present topics, and proposes many clips to download. The second one, about Lane Davies, is more a site of videos. They both come to complete a nice series of sites already centred on these two actors. But are doing the fans of Robin Mattson, A Martinez or Todd McKee ?
