9/18/2003 - Here's some updates on Curtis Armstrong's latest projects:
Ben Rock of Neptune Entertainment, Inc. sent me this information:
 
"...
I thought you and yours might be interested to know of a BRAND NEW film STARRING Curtis Armstrong.  That's right, ask him.  He did it.  It's not a feature, it's a short film (appx 15 minutes) and we're putting the finishing touches on it right now.  We just sent it in to Sundance last week.

It's called "Conversations," and it's a dark character study starring Curtis as a lonely small-town undertaker who is able to talk to the dead -- so he starts killing people he'd like to talk to.

He was great to work with, and he roundly gets high marks from people to whom we've shown the film so far.  His performance is creepy, haunting, and (because it's him) LIKABLE." 
Thanks so much for the info Ben!

I also have some information about the feature film "Unchain My Heart".  The film is about the life of Ray Charles, and Curtis will be playing Ahmet Ertegun, the famed producer and co-founder of Atlantic Records.  I'm not aware of any release dates yet, but it probably won't be until 2004.  You can read more about the film here, and more about Mr. Ertegun here.

7/8/2003 - Received this news from Curtis the other day:
"The film I've been shooting in New Orleans, Unchain My Heart, went very well.  It should be out next winter.  Definitely a different role for me!
I also just finished a short horror film with one of the Blair Witch Project team.  It will hopefully be making the festival rounds.  It's called 'Conversations'."

Other updates: I've added DVD release information to the "Reviews" section of the site.  It's not exactly reviews, but that section has been empty for such a long time...   Pick up the "One Crazy Summer" DVD if you can.  It's got audio commentary by Curtis, along with "Savage" Steve Holland and Bobcat Goldthwait.

7/3/2003 - I found this question while playing the new Trivial Pusuit: Millenium Edition game:  
"What Curtis Armstrong character spent most of the time in Revenge of the Nerds movies with his finger up his nose?"
Hmmmm, who could it be? (Although "most of the time" isn't really true)

4/15/2003 - A new Revenge of the Nerds site?  It looks like it's on the verge of happening.  Let's hope...   - http://www.revengeofthenerds.com

4/2/2003 - A site called 80s-tees.com is selling "Revenge of the Nerds" t-shirts.  Two of them have Curtis Armstrong on them.  They look like cheapie iron-on things to me but I could be wrong.  Check it out here:

I missed Curtis Armstrong in the Batman and Robin reunion movie, I didn't realize he was in it.  It can be tricky finding out what's going on, or maybe I'm just far too inattentive.  There are some new movies listed on the Internet Movie Database as well.

9/11/2002 - Curtis is the subject of a People.com "Where are they now?" article!  You can check it out here.  Most interesting new news from it is that he is working on a new computer-animated series called "Noz and Grak: Alien Abductors".

5/22/2002 - The people at David and Maddie.com (which has quickly become the definitive Moonlighting site on the web, have posted a great interview with Curtis Armstrong.  You can read it here.  The interview mostly discusses his work on Moonlighting, obviously.

4/23/2002 - Some great new stuff courtesy of Megan Collier:  There are two new interviews with Curtis Armstrong.  You can read them here and here.  Also, Megan reports on the Curtis death scene in "Project Viper" for those who haven't seen it.)  SPOILER WARNING!
"The way it happened is Curtis's car breaks down.  He stops opens the hood of his car and he sees this weird grey thing slithering all around and all of a sudden it jumps down his throat! Well a policeman stops and goes up to him, and Curtis is kind of moaning and groaning and making this strange noise.  The policeman asks him if he's stoned.  Well after he said that Viper jumps out of his body (from alot of different places and directions) and goes through the policeman's stomach.  Curtis was right..,it is rather gruesome." - Megan Collier
Thanks Megan!  Hopefully Sci-Fi will air this again or maybe it will even be released on video.  You never know.

4/16/2002 - "Project Viper", co-starring Curtis Armstrong, will be premiering on The Sci-Fi Channel, April 20 @ 9pm ET.  

2/08/2002- Curtis has recently been at work on an episode of 'Crossing Jordan' and The Baha Men's video for their latest single, which he describes as "Revenge of the Nerds-inspired".  No word yet on when the former will air and when the latter will be released.

2/04/2002- First, the good news.  Curtis Armstrong will be reprising his role on "Ed", airing on NBC, airing this Wednesday, 2/6.  So watch it.  Next, the bad news.  The Sci-Fi Network has cancelled "The Chronicle".  Visit their site and let them know what you think of their decision. 

1/29/2002-  Curtis appears in the movie "Gale Force", starring Treat Williams and Michael Dudikoff, released on video and DVD this month.  Look for it in your local video store.  It's also available at Amazon.com.
More news:
"'Irish Eyes Are Crying' was still being edited when I last spoke to the director just before Christmas. 'Viper'---or 'Project Viper' or whatever they're calling it was a movie I made year before last---a horror/action thing with Theresa Russell. If it ever is released, I imagine it will be direct to video. (I do die a marvelously gruesome death in it, though, I must say.)....
I also just completed my second episode of "Ed", which should air in a few weeks."

- "The Chronicle", Curtis Armstrong's newest show which premiered on the Sci-Fi network this season. Anyway, I never got to watch it since I only have very basic cable. Catch it if it's on guys. I'll try to get more information and post it. What else? Hmmm, check out the excellent interview with Curtis Armstrong at AcidLogic.com Also, this is very very old news but the Shanghai Noon dvd contains Curtis Armstrong's deleted scenes in it. This site will hopefully be going through another makeover since I think it looks awful and I have a few new authoring tools at my disposal now. Thanks to all the people who posted on the message board and guestbook, basically keeping this site alive.  

11/28/00-Okay, here's a little badly kept secret for you. You can e-mail Curtis at CUJOAR@aol.com. Please don't abuse this. Keep it friendly and intelligent, and obviously there's no guarantee that he'll e-mail back. Thanks. Oh, sorry about the guestbook. I'm not sure why it no longer works. I'll fix it shortly.  

2/18/00 -Curtis recently appeared on "Ally McBeal" (2/7), episode number 3.11.

-Safety Patrol has recently been released on video, priced for rental.

9/24/99 -Curtis has just appeared on the season premiere of "Third Rock From the Sun" on Sept. 21st as an investigative reporter. Last season he could be seen on a three episode run of 'Felicity' and as a war memorabilia store owner on the short-lived 'Brimstone'.

-Curtis will also be appearing in the new Jackie Chan film, 'Shanghai Noon', which will be released sometime next year.

-Outside of film and television, Curtis has recently co-produced the 25th Anniversary release of the Harry Nilsson album "Pussy Cats". He selected the bonus tracks and wrote the liner notes for the album, and is very pleased to say that he thinks he'll be doing the work on the entire series of Harry Nilsson re-releases. So if you're a fan of Harry Nilsson and/or Curtis Armstrong, I suggest you check it out.
