Criminal Minds Review with Renee...

There is a very amusing review of Criminal Minds with Renee...

Well. and Well again. I'm tempted to subtitle this episode, "The Ballad of Doubting Derek" because boy, howdy, was he ever the sour note for the team this week. Yes, yes, I know, there's always got to be someone who plays Devil's Advocate, but sheesh, D-Man, d'ya think you could give it up once there's a preponderance of evidence?? okay, open on: Gabrielle the Bar-er-Renee O'Connor yammering away on a cell phone (now, all you Xenites out there... how freaking STRANGE was that? Gabrielle + Cell phone = a total whut? moment. ) it's dark, it's stormy, it's the beginning to an uber fic! um, okay... getting back on track...

Renee in new Movie - Bitch Slap - Confirmed!
Okay so that announcement yesterday on Michael Hurst's website wasn't an April Fool's Joke :)

This is Lucy's Message about it:

I also did a small role as Mother Superior, alongside the gorgeous, Renee O'Connor in BITCHSLAP, who is a naughty novice in the convent.  She is confessing her dark fantasies to my character -- just as she does in real life.  Ha-ha, not really....Read more on Lucy's site...

and this was the message yesterday (I owe ya Susan) :)

There's a new movie being made that will feature all four of the Herc/Xena stars--but it's not a Herc or Xena movie. It's called Bitch Slap. Michael Hurst is starring as a gangster named Gage and Kevin Sorbo is playing the role of Mr. Phoenix, with cameos by Lucy Lawless as Mother Superior and Renee O'Connor as Sister Batrille.

Stunts are being coordinated and performed by Xena stunt double Zoe Bell, and the film is written and produced by Eric Gruendemann and Rick Jacobson; Jacobson is also directing. Eric was Co-Executive Producer of Hercules, Xena, Young Hercules, Jack of All Trades, and Cleopatra 2525, and Rick Jacobson directed two episodes of Hercules and twelve of Xena.

Filming is currently in progress in California.
