the grand design,eric stoltz,frances conroyGreat news: The Grand Design, a short film Eric directed a few years ago, will finally be available somewhere – on ShortsHD channel on DirecTV (link):

Premiering Sunday, August 21: In The Grand Design a young poet-scientist struggles with his work – and his mother – when he is chosen to author the next spacecraft-carried “message” to alien civilizations. A 16mm short directed by Golden Globe-nominee Eric Stoltz and Neel Keller, written by Susan Miller, and starring Eric Stoltz and Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under).

If you’re in the U.S., you won’t need DirecTV to see it:

ShortsHD is available on DIRECTV (Channel 568), Dish Network (Channel 375), and AT&T U-Verse (Channel 1789). Access via iTunes will follow shortly after each premiere.

Hopefully, someone will share the film with the rest of the world too one of these days.

Meanwhile, Fort McCoy will be shown at the TriMedia Film Festival in Colorado in September. Source:

Included on the schedule is a screening of “Fort McCoy,” selected for the 2011 Choice City Award for Best Feature Film. The film will be shown the evening of Sept. 10.

Another screening for Fort McCoy – Montreal World Film Festival

The film will be featured in the Focus on World Cinema section. Tickets go on sale on August 13, and hopefully this year’s program will be available on the festival’s site by that date, too.

Another film appearance: Elektra Luxx

DVD Talk
mentions that Eric makes an appearance in one of the deleted scenes of Elektra Luxx, an R-rated comedy by Sebastian Gutierrez, starring Carla Gugino and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which has been released on DVD today (Amazon link).

“Deleted Scenes” (18:44) offer a lackluster interview between Bert and a dim-witted pornstar, a moment of aborted intimacy between two supporting characters, and follows jittery personalities played by Eric Stoltz and Lucy Punch as they negotiate their first three-way.

Judy Moody clip & new IMDB credits

Eric’s cameo in Judy Moody is on YouTube.

A couple of new film/TV credits showed up on his IMDb page this week. One, an episode of A New Kind of Family from 1979, which isn’t available anywhere, and the other, a video he did with Tate Donovan in 1995, produced by Yoko Ono and directed by Peter Bogdanovich, which has been on YouTube for a while now, along with some BTS footage. You can see it here.

And it looks like he is directing an episode of Californication this season. According to the IMDb, it will be episode 5.06. No details yet.
