For those who won’t get enough of Rob Lowe in the flesh on Fox’s upcoming “The Grinder,” the actor lends his voice to “Moonbeam City,” the latest exercise in animated silliness from Comedy Central. Boasting an amusingly stylized look and an Adult Swim vibe, this cop show spoof from “Conan” writer Scott Gairdner features considerable star power in its vocal ranks while reveling in all the staples of the adult-animation playground, where an entire episode (the second) can be seemingly built largely around the phrase “dolphin penis.” Laughs do come, but seldom in anything approaching waves.
Taking full advantage of his earnest, deadpan delivery, Lowe plays Dazzle Novak, an utterly self-absorbed cop who appears to have borrowed Don Johnson’s “Miami Vice” wardrobe and brings strippers to work because, well, he paid for the time. Dazzle’s antics leave his boss, Pizzaz (voiced by Elizabeth Banks), in a »

“You’re carrying around some old man on your shoulders. Some demon’s got you deep in its clutches. He’ll follow you to the end.” For Max Bornstein, the end could come prematurely, as his heroin addiction, withholding of secrets from his family, and illegal dealings within the pornography industry take a terrible toll on his body and mind in Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale.
Set in 1970’s-era New York City, Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale is based on a true story. With production successfully wrapped on the film, and an Indiegogo campaign recently launched to aid in the post-production process, we caught up with director Tate Steinsiek to discuss being drawn to Max’s real life story, shooting a period piece during the winter in New York City, transitioning from makeup effects work to the director’s chair, and much more.
