Four For Friday - Halloween

I am not a big get in a costume and go have a party guy for Halloween. One time though, someone talked me into it. Once. I met this B+ list mostly movie actress (SW) who does moonlight in some cable television a long time ago. She was just starting out when we were first introduced. I was at a screening of a movie in which she was probably billed just high enough to get an invite. She had been in one earlier movie that year which gave her some amount of fame, but it had pretty much gone away by this time. I was there because one of the guys who contributed a song to the soundtrack invited me along. The soundtrack did way better than the movie. Anyway, we got to talking and made some plans to meet up. Blah blah blah. About a month after the movie screening was Halloween.

The thing is, in between that flop and Halloween she had another movie come out. She was doing a bunch of press for that movie so we still had not hung out by the time that movie had its premiere. Well, lo and behold that lifelong friend of mine who has been in this space many times asked me to go to the premiere with  her. She was actually in the movie and was pretty excited.  Anyway, SW was there, obviously and we started up right where had left off a month earlier doing almost the same thing. I was even wearing the same thing. I do that. So, after the premiere there was a party. It probably would have been the most boring party in the world if it were not for one of the co-stars of the movie. In one night, this actor, who we will call MA, stripped naked, snorted coke of every available surface, made out with women, rubbed himself against guys and drank shot after shot of tequila all while making sure nobody touched his pills. Seriously. When he stripped he took the pills out of the pocket of his pants and set them on a table. Every minute or so he would stop doing what he had been doing and make eye contact with his pills. If someone walked near the table, he could sense it and would scream at them to stay the f**k away from his pills. He screamed it so often, that by the end of the night people were screaming it for him when someone would walk by the table. It was probably the most bizarre thing I have seen someone do almost ever, but especially someone who was almost A list at that point. It seems hard to believe now, but the actor who started on television, ended up getting a half dozen above the title A list movie credits before the partying just got too far out of hand. Now, he barely works. He gets most of his gigs from favors.

SW is Ali Larter (Sara Wolfe in the movie House on Haunted Hill) Liaa Loeb the lifeling friend and Chris Kattan as the junkie who was in the film.

Lisa Loeb

I was trying to make that work but couldn't figure out what cable show Ali Larter did. Everything else definitely fits because LL is Enty's bestie and Enty has called CK close to A list before.

She was on Legends on TNT

Derek Harvey said...

What was the soundtrack though?

Derek Harvey said...

I think SW is Robin Tunney
The movie that had a better soundtrack than success---Empire Records, and then she stared in The Craft

Bruce Gender said...

she was also on Heroes

Bruce Gender said...

duh cable, my bad

@sandy. I am very impressed with how fast you solved that one! Someone must have owed him a favor since Chris has a pic coming out.

Derek Harvey said...

I think Sandy got it ---but no one listens to or bought that soundtrack---did it EVEN have a sdtrk!?

I keep trying to make Joey Lauren Adams work - went from Dazed and Confuzed to Mallrats- the film with a better soundtrack actor Jason Lee or Jeremy London.
Also could be her going from Mallrats to BioDome- actor being Pauly Shire?
Was Aimee Mann involved?

Tricia13 said...

She was United States if Tara as well

Math! Math! Math!

Ali Larter seems to fit. The previous movie premier could be "Drive me Crazy" which had the hit Britney song on its soundtrack. Ali's earlier movie in 99 that gave her some press was "Varsity Blues." About a month after Drive Me Crazy was released House on Haunted Hill was released. Chris Kattan for MA--MA standing for Mango perhaps.

I was thinking Andy Dick for the guy, not sure if he was ever in any movies

Derek Harvey said...

I guess that sounds about right for the soundtrack---that movie must have been REALLY bad though...

back again said...

"House On Haunted Hill"
Lisa Loeb(small part)
Ali Larter
Chris Kattan
Soundtrack is "Varsity Blues" --alot of people had that CD and Ali Larter was in the movie.

It's four. SW, MA, lifelong friend (not really blind) and the movies in question. See, you can always make math work!

Sam said...

Loved Empire Records and the soundtrack was even better!

Sam said...

OG Enty!

SikSyko said...

The only soundtrack did way better than the movie was Last Action Hero which I don't think has anything to do with this blind.

Robin Tunney / Skeet Ulrich (The Craft)
