Alexis Arquette Reportedly Died From AIDS. Here’s What That Really Means
Huffington Post - 5 months
Actress Alexis Arquette has died from complications related to AIDS, according to news reports, but how exactly, does someone die from the disease? Arquette, who was an activist in the transgender community, died on Sunday at age 47, according to People magazine. Members of Arquette’s family, including her sister Patricia Arquette and brother David Arquette, who are both actors, also released statements about their loss on social media. “Alexis was a brilliant artist and painter, a singer, an entertainer and an actor,” the family said in a Facebook post. “Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. She was a vanguard in the fight for understanding and acceptance for all trans people.” AIDS, which stands for “acquired immunodeficiency syndrome,” is a disease caused by an infection with the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV. Typically, a person can live for many years with an HIV infection befor ...

A Review of the Independent Film <i>Evan's Crime</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Evan's Crime, starring Douglas Smith and David Arquette, is a crime drama centered around a boy named Evan (Smith) who gets into a heap of trouble after he is busted for possession of marijuana and accused of far worse. Arquette, who plays a corrupt district attorney, is hell-bent on locking Evan away despite his obvious innocence. There are a few aspects of Evan's Crime that felt a bit disjointed, such as the jump forward in time. With the Evan being so young, skipping the story forward a full seven years made it harder to accept the situation, because people change so much in seven years especially from such a young age. However, the plot of the film is certainly heavy enough to justify unchanging motives from most of the main characters despite a seven year leap. What I can say, as an audience member close to Evan's age, is that the film scared me. As I was watching, I felt myself wondering how I would handle the same situation, one in which my life is ruined and I am pow ...

David Arquette: Dream School, Dream World
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
I recently had an incredible experience on -- of all places -- the set of a reality show. An adaptation of Jamie Oliver's U.K. series, Sundance Channel's Dream School takes 15 at risk high school students and provides them with a 30-day educational and inspirational journey with the goal of getting them on track to graduate... But before I go into all of that, I need to get a few things off of my chest. Why are people so cruel? In a world full of self-appointed and uncertified judges who wildly swing gavels while pointing their proverbial fingers at anyone that doesn't fit in, sentencing them to humiliation and ridicule regardless of the fact that their only crime is that of individuality... Is it really so surprising that so many people in this world want to drop out, fade away or blow it all up in a fireball of vengeful hatred? Granted, I may be spouting off a bit dramatically, but this is a topic I'm passionate about, especially when I open up the New York Times to fi ...

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2000
    Age 28
    Arquette held the title for 12 days until the Slamboree pay-per-view on May 7, 2000, when he was booked to defend the championship against Jarrett and Page in a Triple Cage match, the same match featured in the climax of Ready to Rumble.
    More Details Hide Details In the end, he turned on Page and gave the victory to Jarrett. After Slamboree, Arquette cut a promo on the May 8 episode of Nitro, explaining that his entire friendship with Page and title run was a "swerve". Page subsequently ran down to the ring and hit him with a Diamond Cutter. Arquette made one final appearance with WCW at the New Blood Rising pay-per-view on August 13, when he interfered in a match between Buff Bagwell and Kanyon. Arquette was totally against becoming the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, believing that fans like himself would detest a non-wrestler winning the title. Vince Russo, who was the head booker for WCW at the time, insisted that Arquette becoming the champion would be good for the company and for publicity, and Arquette reluctantly agreed to the angle. All the money he made during his WCW tenure was donated to the families of Owen Hart (who died in a freak accident), Brian Pillman (who died from an undiagnosed heart condition), and Darren Drozdov (who became a quadriplegic after an in-ring accident). After World Wrestling Federation/World Wrestling Entertainment (WWF/E) purchased WCW, Arquette's championship run was listed as the top reason for the "failure" of Nitro in a list published by WWE Magazine.
    In 2000, after filming the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) movie Ready to Rumble, Arquette was brought into WCW storylines.
    More Details Hide Details He made his first appearance on the April 12, 2000 episode of Thunder, sitting in the crowd before leaping into the ring to take part in a worked confrontation with Eric Bischoff and his New Blood stable. Afterwards, he formed an alliance with Chris Kanyon and then reigning WCW World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page, and with their help, he defeated Bischoff in a singles match in the April 24 episode of Nitro. On the following episode of Thunder, Arquette teamed with Page in a match against Bischoff and Jeff Jarrett, with the stipulation that whichever man got the pin would take the championship. Arquette pinned Bischoff again in the match's finish, receiving the WCW World Heavyweight Championship in the process. During his time as champion, Arquette was mostly used as comic relief. He only appeared on two shows as champion, the May 1 Nitro and May 7 Slamboree pay-per-view. During the former, a vignette was shown, filmed on the set of Arquette's film 3000 Miles to Graceland, which also featured his wife Courteney Cox and their co-star Kurt Russell. In the vignette, Cox informs Russell that Arquette is the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, causing Russell to laugh and walk off and Arquette to chase after him with a steel chair. In another portion of the show, Arquette was seen backstage trembling in fear and attempting to "give back" the championship belt. He did, however, successfully defend the title against Tank Abbott with help from Page.
    In addition to his acting career, Arquette took a brief foray into professional wrestling in early 2000, competing for World Championship Wrestling (WCW).
    More Details Hide Details During his tenure (primarily to promote his upcoming film Ready to Rumble), Arquette became a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, an angle that has been cited as pivotal to the demise of WCW. Arquette was born in a Subud commune in Bentonville, Virginia. He is the youngest child of Brenda Olivia "Mardi" (née Nowak), an actress, poet, theater operator, activist, acting teacher, and therapist, and Lewis Arquette, an actor. Arquette's paternal grandfather was comedian Cliff Arquette. Arquette's mother was Jewish (from a family that emigrated from Poland and Russia), while his father was a convert from Catholicism to Islam; through him, David is distantly related to explorer Meriwether Lewis. His father, whose family's surname was originally "Arcouet", was of part French-Canadian descent. Arquette's four siblings, Rosanna, Alexis, Richmond, and Patricia are all actors. The Arquettes had an unusual upbringing, with a father who occasionally had substance abuse issues. Their mother died of breast cancer.
  • 1999
    Age 27
    Arquette married actress Courteney Cox on June 12, 1999.
    More Details Hide Details They have a daughter, Coco Riley Arquette, born June 13, 2004. Jennifer Aniston is Coco's godmother.
  • 1996
    Age 24
    It was during the filming of the first film in 1996 that he first met his future wife, Courteney Cox. The couple married in 1999; together, they appeared in a 2003 advertisement for Coke and formed the production company Coquette (both a portmanteau of their last names and a word meaning a flirty woman), which has produced a number of films and television series, including Daisy Does America, Dirt, and Cougar Town.
    More Details Hide Details Arquette guest starred alongside Cox on Cougar Town in 2012. Arquette appeared in the Sega video game ESPN NFL 2K5, voicing himself as a "celebrity adversary" and manager of his own team, the Los Angeles Locos, as well as appearing as an unlockable character in Season Mode.
