Chicago – The beautiful Mali Elfman, daughter of the great composer Danny Elfman, has written and produced (and co-stars in) a unique piece of work called “Do Not Disturb,” a collection of interconnected short films that chronicles the bizarre happenings in a Los Angeles hotel room and is now available On Demand. What goes on behind closed doors? If the walls of even one room could talk, the stories they would tell would be great fodder for filmmaking. “Do Not Disturb” is too inconsistent to recommend completely but features a few interesting elements and bodes well for a promising filmmaker.
Not unlike “Four Rooms,” “Do Not Disturb” links together a series of short films through one hotel worker, an unnamed maid effectively played by Diva Zappa (the youngest daughter of the legendary Frank).

The cast includes Balfour, Diva Zappa, Jason Alan Smith, Troy Garity, Lindsay Pulsipher, Mali Elfman, Maureen Flannigan, Jonathan Majors and John Reese.

We’ve only reached the American Idol Top 24, but two of the hit reality show’s vocal coaches predict Thia Megia will go far in the competition. Not only does she have the support of her friend Charice’s fans around the world, she’s one of the best talents they’ve seen!
“The kid is amazing. She’s 15. She’s so beyond her years musically, it’s insane,” Michael Orland raved about the pint-size belter from Mountain House, Calif. to HollywoodLife.com at the Idol Prom in Hollywood Feb. 24.
