Question: What’s going on with Missy Peregrym? The girl is smokin’ hot!

Missy Peregrym

Answer: I think you are probably speaking for a large portion of the lesbian masses when you profess your admiration for Ms. Peregrym.

In fact, I’m pretty sure that an entire generation of women got a glimpse of Peregrym’s abs in the undeniably awesome film Stick It (2006) and immediately joined gyms in order to 1) sculpt their very own Peregrym-style six-pack or 2) pick up a girl with a Peregrym-style six-pack.

In 2007, Peregrym had a brief stint on Heroes as a shape-shifter, then took the role of Andi (the girlfriend of the main character, Sam, played by Bret Harrison) in the CW comedy, Reaper, a surprisingly funny show about an average Joe (or, in this case, Sam) who is forced to become a bounty hunter for the devil.

CW has decided to bring back Reaper two weeks earlier than planned, so now the second season begins March 3 at 8 p.m and will run for 13 consecutive episodes.

Question: I absolutely loved the Israeli move The Secrets. Are there any plans to release it for sale on DVD in the U.S.?

Answer: I checked in with Monterey Media, and they told me that the film is still in theatrical release, but that it will be released on DVD on April 7, 2009.
