Examiner Exclusive: Actor Dave Foley talks Coopers' Christmas

Dave Foley, one of the stars of the new movie "Cooper's Christmas," can relate to the yuletide dysfunction demonstrated by the family in the flick.

"I grew up in a house with a father who hated Christmas and he pretty much try to make it as miserable as possible for everyone," Foley explains. "So my Christmas was mostly in the movies and television specials."

When asked about his favorite holiday classics, Foley listed "It's a Wonderful Life," "Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "The Bishop's Wife" and, of course, "A Christmas Story."

In fact, Walt Disney Animation Studios last year gave Foley an opportunity to participate in a new Christmas classic of his own, a half-hour special titled "Prep & Landing."

Foley lends his voice to an elf named Wayne who, after getting a new rookie partner named Lanny (Derek Richardson), is reminded of the spirit of Christmas and the importance of being on Santa Claus's North Pole team.

A follow-up to the special is currently in the works but Foley notes fans will be happy to know that a seven-minute short dubbed “Operation: Secret Santa,” in which Betty White voices Mrs. Claus, will accompany ABC's rebroadcast of “Prep & Landing” next month.

Meanwhile, in "Coopers' Christmas," set in 1985, Foley plays Bill Davidson, a man who gives his brand new, state-of-the-art home video camera to Gord (Jason Jones), who then uses it to document his family's holiday. ("Movie Review: Coopers' Christmas")

Naturally, Christmas chaos ensues and Gord quickly discovers that some memories simply should not be recorded. Although Foley admits to being born prior to the home video craze, he is well aware of the medium's inevitable futility.

"With my own kids, I do what every parent does and shoot video constantly," Foley adds. "So I have hundreds and hundreds of hours of video that just sits in a box that nobody wants to watch."

Foley spends the majority of his "Coopers' Christmas" screen time in his birthday suit as it comes to light through brief snippets that, prior to giving the camera to Gord, Bill used it to make sex tapes.

Foley denies ever having made a sex tape in his own real life but says that he has gotten quite used to appearing in the buff for the sake of his art over the years.

"Once you get used to it, it's not a big deal," says the Canada native, who first bared his behind in the 1998 HBO miniseries “From the Earth to the Moon.” "I think in Canada, nudity is less of a huge issue than it is in the U.S. Americans are terrified of nudity - drawn to it but terrified."

Foley has a number of projects that are making their way down the film production pipeline, including a comedy called “Freeloaders” in which he plays himself. He also has a role in “Coopers' Christmas” director Warren P. Sonoda's next movie “Servitude.”

When asked about a "News Radio" reunion, in reference to the television sitcom on which Foley starred alongside Stephen Root, Andy Dick, Joe Rogan, Maura Tierney and Vicki Lewis from 1995 to 1999, the actor admitted to being undoubtedly on board.

"We're all still friends so I would love to get together with everybody and do something," Foley says. "I don't know what it would be and I don't know who would be interested making it but I think it would be a lot of fun."

“Coopers' Christmas” (U – 92 minutes) is now available on DVD at retail stores and rental outlets throughout the Valley.

happy bellini day!

HAPPY BELLINI DAY! may we have buttermilk for breakfast. may we sing many disco tunes. may we have trout for dinner. may we poke the prophet bellini. and now, boys and girls, i shall tell you all the story of bellini...

"many years ago, before what our elders call the big traffic jam, there walked upon the earth the man named bellini, who lived in a one-bedroom apartment. bellini walked around smiling and he loved elevator music. now, one day as he was walking to the store to get a jar of buttermilk, he paused to gaze at the majesty of an empty parking lot. he looked up to see a rock. bellini just stood there. you see, to rush or to wear a watch would have been foreign to bellini. thusly, he was struck by the rock and died standing there. in that parking lot where bellini died, a buttermilk tree sprouted! they cut it down, because it WAS a parking lot. but what bellini taught us that day by being crushed by a large rock was to find beauty in the banal, for it is everywhere. bellini was a prophet."

Adam Sessler Crushes Heads
It took me 2 years to find this, but I finally found it. The Head Crusher reference is only at the beginning, but the rest of the review of Final Fantasy XI for the PC is pretty funny. Adam Sessler's Head Crusher impression wasn't bad, IMO.

Comedian Dave Foley is a standup guy
Comedian Dave Foley is a standup guy

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

It's a lucky thing that Dave Foley is good at comedy - because he's bad at everything else. "I'm terrible at so many things," says the star of the late sitcom "NewsRadio."

"I'm a very disorganized person in every other way. I'm very disorganized. Everything's straight in my head when I'm working, but when I'm not working, I can't balance a checkbook. I can't remember phone numbers. I forget appointments all the time," he says at a dining table in a hotel meeting room.

He laughs when it's suggested that maybe he needs a wife. He's already enlisted two, he says, ruefully. And those divorces accounted for his toughest times.

"Both of my wives changed the direction of my life," says Foley. "I'm single right now. I'm three years into being single this time, let's see how long it lasts. I know comedy gets the girls. I'll just try not to keep any of them."

Foley has reunited with his colleagues from the Kids in the Hall comedy troupe for a new eight-part series, "Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" on IFC beginning Friday.

Happy Dave Day
This may be unrelated to KITH. Even though it's late where I am, Famous Dave's is having Dave Day. If you're name is Dave, Davy, David, etc. you get a free entree, tee hee. Makes you wonder, if you sang "Daves I Know" to the staff, would they give you the free entree?

Daniel Husk...The Graphic Novel
Seems like everyone and their mother are making graphic novels these days, or is it my imagination. Not that there's anything wrong with it.

So anyway...Scott is working on a Daniel Husk graphic novel.


I'm wondering, if we can get that, why not mini games for XBOX Live Arcade, Wii/DSware, PSN Network, etc.?
