Supporting Cast Talks Spider-Man 2
by Bob Gough

Warning: Spoilers

Molly Cheek (the mom from American Pie) and Spider-Man alum Elizabeth Banks (pictured – Betty Brant) are talking about their roles in the sequel premiering July 2.

Cheek is in just one scene that doesn’t even have Spidey in it: “It's just a little thing where I'm a society matron at a big gala event and I introduce this hero," Cheek said. "Not Spider-Man. It's this guy who's an astronaut. He's the son of the newspaper guy. But I don't know the script so I really have no idea how it fits into anything. I'm lost." She’s obviously referring to John Jameson, son of J. Jonah.

Meanwhile Banks says, "I reprise my role of Betty Brant and other than that, I can't say anything about the movie."

Danny Trejo Talks Crow: Wicked Prayer
by Bob Gough

Danny Trejo (Spy Kids) is very much in-demand as a villain in Hollywood. But he plays a “white hat” in the upcoming The Crow: Wicked Prayer starring Edward Furlong and David Boreanaz.

”I play a Baptist Minister Indian chief,” he told About.com. “Fallen from grace. I'm actually a good guy in this, Baptist minister. He's the chief of the tribe that hates Eddie Furlong's character, The Crow. I scream at him, ‘How did God choose you?’ And it's funny because he turns around and says, ‘Your daughter did.’ My daughter is Emmanuelle [Chriqui], his love interest.”

Trejo, who is known for being the knife-thrower in Desperado, plays a peace activist in this film and wears a costume: “I wear this feathery thing, it's really kind of cool. You gotta see it, it's a great movie. I think it's going to be the best of the three [previous films].

”The director, Lance [Mungia], he just did it. He went over the top, really awesome,” Trejo said.
