Manos Gavras is busy - acting, writing, etc.
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Some people are easy to introduce. You can say things like, "This is so-and-so; he's a chef." But how can you introduce somebody who doesn't have only one professional title? Such is my dilemma in introducing, Manos Gavras. Most know him for his 2 decade long acting career in Greece and the U.S. He's currently starring in, Brousko, the most popular TV series in Greece (also shown in 18 other countries) and has a number of U.S. produced movies coming out this year such as Swing Away, co-starring Shannon Elizabeth and John O' Hurley. But Manos is also a screenwriter, movie producer (including associate producer of award winning, Lee Daniels' The Butler), musician, dancer, choreographer, brand ambassador (of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve) restaurateur (partner in nice n easy Mykonos and set to open two new locations, one being in the U.S.) and children's book author. "When I first went to N.Y.C. in '97 I was confused because I loved many different art forms," he tells me from h ...

Which Best Part Of 'Love Actually' Is Actually The Best?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Feel it in your fingers: On Nov. 7, 2003, "Love Actually" was released in 576 theaters in North America. Written and directed by Richard Curtis, the film earned $6,886,080, over its debut frame, a pittance of what would come: $246 million in global grosses and a permanent place alongside "It's A Wonderful Life," "Scrooged," "The Muppet Christmas Carol," "A Christmas Story" and "Elf" as a must-watch movie during the holiday season. While "Love Actually" fans can agree that the romantic comedy is a modern-day classic of the genre, one debate is much more combative: Just which of the film's nine story threads is actually the best? To decide, HuffPost Entertainment enlisted a team of editors "Love Actually" experts to, once and for all, make the definitive case for their favorite part of "Love Actually." Evidential proof of our findings is below. Juliet, Peter & Mark Love hurts. It's messy, intense and it often breaks your heart into a million unsalvageable pieces. The aching tr ...

'Melissa & Joey': Will Joe Take Marla Sokoloff's Virginity?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If the two leads on "Melissa & Joey" don't make fans think of classic '90s sitcoms, they added a third for this week's episode. Joe found a new love interest, and it was none other than Marla Sokoloff. Sokoloff played Stephanie's rival/best friend, Gia Mahan, on "Full House." While she was a bit of a bad girl on that show, she proved to be way more of a good girl than Joe ever expected. After getting challenged by Mel to not have sex right away in every new relationship, Joe tried taking it slow. Marla's character, Chelsea, couldn't believe he was so different from most men. She then revealed that she was still a virgin. “I just always thought my first time would be more meaningful if I waited for the perfect man. So, I hope you’re cool with waiting," she told him. “I love waiting!" Joey lied. "I’m a master waiter.” The added pressure became too much for Joe, but he surprised himself even more when Chelsea suddenly decided she was ready to have sex. She was wa ...

WATCH: Every Single Thing Goes Wrong On Live NYE Broadcast
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Nobody can blame KDOC, an independent TV station based out of Orange County that broadcasts in Los Angeles, for wanting to do a live New Year's Eve show. What they can be blamed for, however, is the astounding level of technical incompetence that happened while they were live on the air. And it was beautiful. The clip above shows a montage of "highlights," filled with abrupt cuts, throwing to nobody, unintentionally live microphones, inability to know/care if it was midnight and pretty much every other error that could have made it live on the air. It was like Tim & Eric -- or maybe a junior high school AV club -- was hired to produce an extravagant party with Jamie Kennedy, Macy Gray and Shannon Elizabeth as the star attractions (in case you were wondering if this was set up for success). Warning, the clip includes some NSFW language, courtesy Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and also from errant producers who didn't know their mics were live. Yeah, it was that kind of nigh ...

Shannon Elizabeth's Thanksgiving Battle: 'We're Not Living Like Cavemen'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Actress Shannon Elizabeth won't be eating turkey this Thanksgiving. She'll be saving them. The "American Pie" star is the new 2012 spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt A Turkey Project. The farm animal rescue organization hosts an annual project encouraging people to "adopt" a rescued bird in their New York and California shelters. Started over 25 years ago, Farm Sanctuary reports that their Adopt A Turkey Project has helped them to care for over 1,000 rescued turkeys. Elizabeth, a vegetarian for over 12 years, fell fast in love with the animals on her visit to Farm Sanctuary last year. She was first greeted by "Turkey Lurkey," an affectionate bird who followed her through the farm, cuddling and playing like a domesticated pet. "Too many people only consider cats and dogs when they think about loving animals," she told HuffPost. "They don't realize how every animal out there has feelings, has a heart and soul, has emotions. It only takes meeting them once to reall ...

Giovanni's Movie Review: AMERICAN REUNION
The Daily Blam - almost 5 years
American Pie and its direct sequels weren’t simply about fulfilling the male libido with nudity and raunchy jokes, the core series is a charming commentary on growing up, maturity, and the different forms of relationships we experience in life. The fourth entry of the franchise, American Reunion, is no different, delivering a warm slice of human development with a healthy side of genital jokes. In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler ...

Shannon Elizabeth Talks 'American Reunion,' New Jewelry Line And More
MTV News - almost 5 years
The entire East Great Falls gang is back for another round of high school hijinks this weekend in "American Reunion," even if some alumni are bound to get more screen time than others. You'll see plenty of Oz, Finch, Stifler, Kev and Jim (perhaps too much Jim), but some of the other characters you've come to know and love make only the briefest of appearances. Case in point: Nadia, the Czechoslovakian exchange student that helped turn Jim into an Internet celebrity way back in 1999. Shannon Elizabeth is indeed back for another round of pie-hurtling hilarity, and while her role is a quick one, we promise you this: it's a hilarious cameo. MTV News recently spoke with Elizabeth about her brief "American" reunion and her future plans.

American Pie Alum Alyson Hannigan Proves That Sometimes, Nerds Finish First
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
Remember when American Pie first came out, and people couldn't get enough of "It" girls Mena Suvari, Shannon Elizabeth and Tara Reid? Thirteen years later, those three lovely ladies have largely fallen off the map (unless you count Reid's frequent mentions in gossip mags for her, um, unusual antics). Meanwhile, endearing nerd Alyson Hannigan has been steadily building a rather impressive career to become, arguably, the most successful of all the American Pie alum. Hannigan had already built up a loyal fan base when Pie came out in 1999, thanks to her role as Buffy's trusty sidekick Willow on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She showed fans a completely different side of her as the sex-crazed band geek Michelle in American Pie. (Shy Willow would never throw herself at Jason Biggs like that!) Since Pie (and Buffy), Hannigan has had memorable guest spots on shows like the cult classic Veronica Mars and That '70s Show before landing the role of lovable Lily Aldrin on the hugely popular How I ...
