DAVID SCHWIMMER TO STAR IN AMERICAN CRIME STORY SPIN OFF

HOLLYWOOD – Following the ongoing success of American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson, former Friends star David Schwimmer looks set to star in a spin off series that he will write and produce.

It’s no secret that David Schwimmer has struggled to find his feet following his initial success as Ross from popular sit-com Friends. However, it looks like his career has taken an upspike with the popularity of his role in American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson and he is keen to capitalize on the success with a spin off series that would feature the further adventures of his character Robert Kardashian. David popped into the Studio Exec villa to lay down his plans:

It’s no secret that I’ve become very close to this character. I see Robert as essentially a very decent man in a terrible situation. All his decency is turned in the wrong direction. He is an amazing friend, incredibly loyal, but that loyalty blinds him to what is going on right in front of his face.

What will the new show be about?

I found that after I read the last script and we filmed the last episode that I wasn’t really sure we had told the whole of Robert’s story. I wanted to know more about him and about his family. This is a man who goes back to the law in the highest profile legal case this country has ever seen and then he really has this fame that he had no wish for. I want to explore how he continues to live in Los Angeles and his relationship to his family especially. There was a scene in a restaurant where he turns to his daughter, I think she’s called Kim but I’ll have to look it up, and he tells them that fame is a hollow thing. I wanted to see how Robert and the Kardashians deal with that and recover from it. How they learn to sink back into their former obscurity, chastened and wiser surely. Every week he will take on a different case but we’ll also see his home life. I see it as a mix of something like Perry Mason and The Waltons.

And you are writing and directing?

Yes I am. No, wait writing and producing. Direction will be someone else. I don’t want to direct myself. It’s too distracting.

I see. And the title?

There are a few floating about but my favorite is The Kardashians.

American Crime Story: The Kardashians will be broadcast in the Fall.

5 FACTS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT JOHN TRAVOLTA

HOLLYWOOD – John Travolta is one of the most popular stars of all time but what do we really know about him?

I’ve got FACTS they’re multiplying! And I’m losing control:

1. It’s hard to choose a stand out role in this fine actor’s long career: Tony Manero, Danny Zuko, Vincent Vega, Chili Palmer, Battlefield Earth dude or Robert Shapiro. However, John Travolta considers Broken Arrow his masterpiece. ‘I don’t know what it is about that movie,’ he said. ‘Everything seemed to go right. John Woo was a great director, Christian Slater was such a fresh young talent and I got to say the line, ” Would you please not shoot at the thermonuclear weapon?” which is the kind of line every actor dreams of saying.’

2. Not only can John Travolta can fly an airplane, he can do it with no hands. And when the plane takes off, he always likes ‘to pop a wheelie’ before soaring into the wide blue yonder.

3. When filming Grease it soon became apparent that John Travolta’s singing voice wasn’t strong enough. And so Billy Joel overdubbed all the songs and much of the speaking parts.

4. To research American Crime: The People v O.J. Simpson, John Travolta spent hours watching television and wearing clothes. The television program he watched was Friends because he wanted to feel close to Ross Kardashian.

5. Although there are many people who criticise Mr. Travolta’s adherence to the Church of Scientology, as a humorous website we applaud it and hope that it long may continue.
