"The Grand Design", a 2006 short film starring and co-directed by Eric Stoltz is now available on iTunes.


November 20, 2011

If you're not following Eric Stoltz on Twitter, you missed that he tweeted ( his "first music video" - the "Rumour Has It / Someone Like You" mash up, which was such a hit that it made #1 on iTunes this past week and is heading towards the High Hot 100 Debut on Bravo Eric!

There's also a couple of behind-the-scenes vids out now that the Glee ep has aired.
Here's one about the dodge ball war that's pretty entertaining ( There's also a good one about 'The Slap', in which Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith talk about how Eric directed them for that scene. Click here (

With the holidays coming up, we'd just like to mention that the talent in Eric's family extends beyond himself, and that his sister, Susan R. Stoltz, is a gifted writer who is currently producing a series of children's books. If you have a youngster within your family or circle of friends who is in the 3 to 6-year-old age group, these books make a perfect gift, now or any time! Not only entertaining but educational as well, they're full of illustrations of adorable animal companions Sharkey, Choo-Choo and Kittyhead, and Eric has also helped out by posing for some promotional photos by Suzanne Sylvester. You can see an out-take below in our August 24th entry. A second photo is available on our Facebook page,
Eric Stoltz Fans United ( Many thanks to Susan for her generous sharing of these photos! For  more information on how to order her books, please visit this site (

Eric Stoltz has ventured into a new directing realm that includes  advertising and marketing, having signed on with production and design studio The Department of The 4th Dimension, a "branded content studio  that works with progressive advertising partners to energize their  clients' businesses through moving pictures across multiple platforms".  According to the article, he is "currently prepping a comedy-dialogue driven project encompassing both (TV) spots and web content, and is slated to direct additional episodes of this season's Glee".

We Are Movie Geeks has
a nice review of Fort McCoy, which was screened at the St. Louis Film Festival this weekend. (

Reminder that Eric's most recent Glee episode "Mash Off" airs this Tuesday, Nov. 15th. You can catch a
sneak-peek here at Spoiler TV. (

This last item isn't news, but something I discovered over at Getty  Images. There are
62 'new' pictures that previously did not appear under a search for "Eric Stoltz" because his last name on them is misspelled "Stolz". Having never thought to search for misspellings of his name, I  missed them until Getty Images saw fit fairly recently to make it so  that a search on the correct spelling of his name brings them up. Oddly, they are all dated 18 March 2009 but actually cover a wide range of years. Getty arranges photos by date, so you have to scroll down past the Paleyfest09 pics to see them. Go have a look and a smile! (


November 2, 2011

Fort McCoy, starring Eric Stoltz, will be screened at the 20th St. Louis International Film Festival on November 12th and 13th. More info here (

here)  Eric's most recently directed Glee episode is ep 3.06 titled "Mash Off" and is scheduled to air on November 15th. This Rolling Stone article that mentions him overseeing the cast's 300th musical performance that  occurs in the ep confirms that. (


October 11, 2011

Miramax's Videos, on Facebook, has
a clip of some of the actors,  including Eric, talking about their favorite scenes and includes the  infamous "needle to the heart" scene.

In Fort McCoy news, the film was awarded Best Cinematography on September 22nd at the 27th Annual Boston Film Festival (a  year-to-the-day posthumous award for cinematographer Neil Lisk, who passed away September 22, 2010.) For more info click
here (

It was also screened at the 6th Annual Tacoma Film Festival on Saturday the 8th, at which it won the Audience Choice Award. Article online
here (

Be sure to check out the clip of Andy Hirsch and Kate Connor just below the article, in which they talk about the film. Kate gives some  wonderful insight into and praise for Eric's ability to capture the essence of her grandfather, Frank Stirn, in his portrayal of him. Congratulations to Neil, Kate, Eric and the rest of the cast and crew!

And it seems that Eric's newest project is an old favorite - yet another episode of Glee in the making! Jenna Ushkowitz tweeted
a photo of him on the set this past week (

Lea Michele said they began shooting 3.06 on the 6th, but they're also still working on 3.05. Read her tweet

an interesting and informative article about Eric's Leverage episode, "The Long Way Down Job". If you choked up during the "last speech" scene, you are in good company - apparently even people on the set had to leave the room. Kudos to Eric Stoltz for an absolutely stellar performance! (

here and here. Victor's listed on IMDb as directing episode 1.8 called "Anger", click here.  However, some of the other eps don't have the director info filled in yet, so I can't say for sure at this time that's the ep Eric is actually appearing in.

In case nobody else noticed, this site is online for 8 years now. Actually I loaded it up a day earlier, but thought that to be bad luck due to the fact that it was April’s fools day! But nope, I am still here.

So, thank you for still visiting! And thank you for the wonderful friends I have made over the years because of this site.

Special hugs to my Ysa! Without her I would have went offline a looong time ago. And a big huge thank you to Abby for holding up the torch at the moment.

Let’s see what the next eight years have in stock ... which reminds me that Abby sent me updates on our favorite actor ... which reminds me that I saw someone in Berlin last week who looked like Eric Stoltz. But naaaaah ... well, who knows?

Happy New Year!

There are two Eric Stoltz projects to watch out for this very first week of 2011.

First, a reminder that the final five episodes of Caprica will air on January 4th on the SyFy channel beginning at 6pm. If you haven't seen them yet, I assure you they are the best of the entire show. Season 1.5 of Caprica is also now available on DVD. You can order it from several places, including

Second, it's been confirmed that the newest episode of Private Practice directed by Eric Stoltz is ep 4.11, titled "If You Don't Know Me By Now". It airs on January 6th.

Not sure what is going on with Paddyville. All information for this project was recently removed from IMDb. However, the production company, which lists Eric as the producer, states it is to begin filming in Canada in Feb. 2011. So I guess we continue to wait and see on that one.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and wish you all the best for the coming year! Abby
