Newcomer scores lead in Kevin Smith hockey flick

30 November 2010 12:00 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Writer-director, avid Twitter-er and curse-word enthusiast Kevin Smith has announced the lead in his upcoming hockey flick Hit Somebody. Twenty-two year-old Nicholas Braun, whose previous credits include Sky High, "10 Things I Hate About You," and "Poor Paul" will be entering the View Askewniverse as a hockey super-fan named Buddy McKraken who gets a shot at playing professionally - just not in the way he dreamed.

"Because every hockey player, every kid dreams of scoring goals, taking it to the net, you’re the hero and s**t," Smith explained on his podcast. "No one dreams about 'I’m the dude who f******g hits the guy so that the kid over there can take the puck to the net.' And the glory goes to that guy." »

‘What If’: ABC Takes a Crack at the Soap Opera Mashup

11 May 2010 10:18 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

What would the old-time soap manufacturers who created the soap opera think of this newfangled thing called "the internet"? ABC is going to try to answer that question by airing a 10-episode web series that asks the question "what if characters from the three ABC Daytime series; General Hospital, All My Children, and One Live to Live; crossed over into each others series and interacted with one another?" Beginning this July, this is exactly what is going to happen. Directed by One Life to Live executive producer Frank Valentini and airing on Soapnet.com and ABC.com, shorter versions of the episodes will also air on ABC and SOAPnet. This will be an interesting experiment on whether this will promote click-through to the longer episodes online. The soap opera fan community has traditionally been extremely open to web series. The 1st Annual Indie Soap Awards honored several web dramas including Compulsions, »
