Vampire Diaries snags Steve McQueen's grandson

from Jane at TVSquad

I'm neck-deep in the midst of a vampire obsession. I'm one of the Twi-hards eagerly awaiting the Nov. 20 release of Stephenie Meyer's next vamp-flick, New Moon. I was immediately sucked into HBO's True Blood, and can't wait for its return in May.

I recently sped through the short-lived Moonlight and fell in love with Mick St. John. And its taken me all of about a week to get to season three of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (though I don't know if I can take much more of the on again-off again romance of Buffy and Angel - don't tell me how it plays out).

I'm sure I'll be equally enthralled with The CW pilot, Vampire Diaries. It doesn't hurt that Steven R. McQueen, grandson of the legendary Steve McQueen has landed a lead role. I bet even those not as enamored with vamps will tune in just to see him: Does he look like his grandfather? Act like him? Have the same "something"?

And there are other reasons to tune in, too. The pilot is helmed by Kevin Williamson, the brains behind Scream and Dawson's Creek. The story centers on two vampire brothers -- one good and one evil -- both vying for the soul of a young girl named Elena, as well as the souls of her friends and family in the small town where they live. Sounds like a winner to me.

McQueen will play Jeremy, Elena's outcast younger brother. You may have also seen him as Kyle Hunter on The WB's Everwood.

Visit to Fangtasia and new photos from one of our readers !

We have the best readers and best community in the world ..our very good friend, island girl sent us her wonderful photos and little "visit-logue" from her Valentine's Day visit to Fangatsia. Thanks Islandgirl!!

Our friend Robiart sent us others recently HERE

Here are some pictures I took at Alex's Bar. Sorry they are so crappie, but my darling husband forgot our camera so we had to use my phone. The fact he had agreed to take his crazed wife to the bar in the first place was a big deal, so I really couldn't get too mad about it. ;) Lord knows what people were thinking while I snapped pictures in the restroom...."I take pictures of bathrooms, it's sort of my thing" :)

We copped a squat on a Ramones paraphernalia table and just hung out there for 5 hours!! The people were really nice! The door guy looked kind of sketchy but after I started talking to him I was pleasantly surprised!

I have to laugh, that after a few cocktails, my husband started to point out various places that parts took place, then after a couple more he was asking where Eric was :)

As we waited for our cab the bouncer was making small talk with me.
Meanwhile I am thinking "Ha Ha Pam...I got out!". I told him what a fun bar it was and how we just don't have this kind of thing in Utah...hell we don't have much here to speak of. He said "Have you ever seen that HBO show TrueBlood?" I said "I have come across it once or twice. It's based on a book series right?" Never mind the fact that it was the reason I was there, I have read the books three times, turned everyone I know onto it, check the blogs daily, my own kids call me Sookie and I had to change out of my Trueblood shirt I was going to wear to Alex's, because my Husband didn't want to be embarrassed!!! You just don't want to come across as obsessed, even if you are :) You can get more information that way! He told me they had been filming the month before. I asked if he had met any of the actors and he said no. I tried to get out why they were closed the next few days and all I got was that it was for private engagements. He was a delightful guy!

Did I tell you I sat in the chair that Mr. Moyer did when Long Shadow was staked!!!!! I will never wash my butt again!!! Well....theoretically anyway!

I was a really good time and the best Valentine's Day EVER!
See the Wall o' Bubba :)

Stephen Moyer and other celebs play star-studded soccer fundraiser in Los Angeles

Gosh, I hope he has on lots of sunscreen

HOLLYWOOD has rallied behind victims of the Victorian bushfires, with a star-studded soccer fundraiser in Los Angeles.

Professional soccer players and celebrities including Mentalist pin-up Simon Baker and House star Jesse Spencer played in the charity match, which was organised by Australian actor Anthony LaPaglia.

LaPaglia said the plight of Victorians affected by the devastating fires had inspired him to call on his friends and co-ordinate the fundraiser through his Californian soccer club Hollywood United.
"When we started to see all of the images coming through from the Victorian fires, I just thought this is what were here for, this is what we do," he said.
"It was terrible to see entire towns wiped out and to see images of cars burnt to a crisp trying to get out just horrifying images.
"Without hesitation, people - world-class soccer players and celebrities not just from Australia but from America and Britain too - put up their hands to use their profile to help."
LaPaglia's actor wife Gia Carides and his Without a Trace co-star Poppy Montgomery were among the crowd of hundreds cheering the game, which was held in the seaside celebrity enclave of Pacific Palisades.
New Zealand-raised actress Anna Paquin came straight from the set of her hit television series True Blood to cheer on her British boyfriend Stephen Moyer, who plays her lover on the award-winning vampire drama.
Moyer, 37, revealed last week that he and Paquin, 26, were in a relationship after months of secretly dating.
