"Class Rank", directed by Eric Stoltz, is being screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival this Friday, April 21st. A Q&A session will immediately follow with Eric Stoltz, producers Shaun S. Sanghani and Sandy Stern, screenwriter Benjamin August, and cast members Olivia Holt and Skyler Gisondo. Place: Lido Theater, 3459 Via Lido, Newport Beach, CA 92663. Time: 8:00pm to 9:45pm. Cost: $25 - $65. Read more here (newportbeachfilmfest.com).
The Orange County Register lists it as one of its three film picks. From the OCR:
“Class Rank” (8 p.m. April 21): The annual Friday Night Showcase on April 21 will feature the world premiere of director Eric Stoltz’s film “Class Rank,” starring Skyler Gisondo (“Night at the Museum”), Kristin Chenoweth (ABC’s “Pushing Daisies”), Olivia Holt (Disney’s “Kickin’ It”) and Nick Krause (“White Rabbit”). The heartfelt comedy follows two high school outsiders who attempt to overtake the local school board and enter the risky world of politics.
“When I read the script, I was kind of moved and amused by the characters, and clearly related to all of them. I was a bit of an outcast and a nerd in high school, socially awkward as well- and completely unversed in love,” Stoltz said. “I had great affection for these caring but slightly wounded people, probably because I saw myself in them.” Read more here (ocregister.com).

The White Collar FB page has many BTS photos from "Ice Breaker" up now, several of which include Eric Stoltz. You can see them here.
November 24, 2013
Not so much an update as a 'debriefing', I've gathered together all of the pics-n-things that came out this past week from the airing of Eric's latest two shows he directed. White Collar's "Ice Breaker" ep generated a ton of kudos, while Nashville's "Hanky Panky Woman" generated about two tons-worth, several pictures, and a live-tweeting episode during the show Wednesday night that I hope some of you were able to catch, watch, and/or participate in.
First, here are some new BTS pics of Eric on the set of Nashville. Actor Will Chase tweeted this BTS photo of himself with Eric Stoltz, Connie Britton, Oliver Hudson, and Charles Esten. Writer/producer David Gould tweeted this one of himself with Eric and this one of Eric with writer/director/producer Callie Khouri. Transmedia producer Geoffrey Colo shared this great photo of Eric on the set and Richa Nashville tweeted this one of Eric directing Clare Bowen.
For those of you who missed the live-tweeting or who don't have Twitter, I gathered all the conversations together that I could find and created what reads like an interview of sorts. Great questions, great answers. You can see them on our Facebook page here, here, here, here and here.
I think that's everything! Enjoy!

This was a rather funny week. While I was offline at home and not able to update the site, Abby kept sending rewritten posts with better links, new info, revised data and kept reminding me that I have to change the ‘5 to 7 (unknown)’ to ‘5 to 7 (actor)’. So, enjoy Abby’s latest collection of Eric Stoltz news:
Eric Stoltz is guest starring in the season finale of Maron, which airs on IFC as two back-to-back episodes at 10pm on Friday, June 28th. You can get the show here (ifc.com).
Looks like Eric is also getting some screen time in the romantic comedy "5 to 7". He's now listed on IMDb as playing a character named Galassi.
Jeff King, co-exec producer of the shows White Collar and Continuum, tweeted this photo of Eric Stoltz with TV writer Matt Whitney. He tagged it 'White Collar', but I have no additional info at the moment to confirm if that means Eric may be involved in an episode. We'll wait and see.
Here's a fun "what if" idea: what if someone wrote a comic book about the producers of Back to the Future going back in time and making sure Eric Stoltz starred as Marty McFly? And, what if the proceeds for selling such a comic book were donated to such a worthy cause as the Young Storytellers Foundation?
Check out this video, which explains how and why David Guy Levy did just that (vimeo.com).
Here's an article about it in EW's Shelf Life section, which includes a link where you can download the first issue (shelf-life.ew.com).
PS: Yes, I changed it to ‘actor’ ^^ lee
Nothing official I can point to yet, but the New York Public Library Special Events Facebook page mentioned that Eric Stoltz was recently there filming a romantic comedy called "5 to 7" (imdb.com).
He wrote them a nice thank-you note, which you can also see on their Facebook page.
Besides that, news is slow. So instead, here's some fun photos that made their way around Twitter recently. Melissa Errico posted two backstage pics (instagram.com) from The Importance of Being Earnest and this one (twitter.com) and a fan tossed out a nice BTS photo from when Eric was directing Grey's Anatomy (twitter.com).

The computer gets no rest at the moment. Eric Stoltz related updates almost every day. Lucky us! So here the latest one, written once more by Abby:
Seems pretty confirmed that the episode of Glee Eric Stoltz just directed is ep 4x17. Glee Forums, which are usually pretty accurate, list the title as "Guilty Pleasures." It airs March 21st. More info here (gleeforum.com).
James LaRosa, a writer on a new TV drama called "Bounce", tweeted that Eric Stoltz was on the set. No details on what he may have been doing there. A gossip site I saw said he's starring in the show, but I hesitate to trust that info as it seems to be based only on this same vague tweet. Will wait to see if a more reliable source mentions it.
In the meantime, enjoy this great photo of Eric Stoltz tweeted the other day by Sam Blankson! (@sammyblanks)
