As I continue to slog through our three -- count em' three -- hours of audio tapes from the Grindhouse junket, I'll be passing along news as I find it. During a rather uneventful roundtable with James Cameron mainstay Michael Biehn, who has a small role in the film, Biehn was asked what his next project was, and he said: "I'm doing a movie called Kids in America, with Topher Grace. Topher is actually executive producing. It's got Anna Faris and this kid Danny Fogler." And who does he play? "A cop. No. Yes! A cop. You get one guess, right?" I take that to mean he's playing a cop.
Apparently, for Cinematical's purposes, Biehn was sort of like the Michigan J. Frog of press junket interviews, because once he got into the other roundtables, he started talking up a storm about Avatar and how Jim Cameron is thinking of putting him in it and is also planning to not use cameras -- is he going to shoot the whole thing with his mind? Even though he gave us the short end of the news stick, here's hoping Biehn's next Cameron role lives up to Aliens or The Terminator, which are two of my favorite films. His next non-Cameron films, apart from Kids in America, include Psych: 9, a horror-thriller in which he will play ... you guessed it, a cop. He also has a role in a movie called That's Amore, which, at a glance, appears to be a low-budget attempt at remaking the Ernest Borgnine classic Marty, which doesn't sound like a good idea.
