Ask Stacy -- Week of 5/25/13
Ask Stacy for May 25-26
DEAR STACY: We watched the old movie "Clue" the other night and would like to know the name of the actor who played The Chief. He was very familiar, but we looked and looked at the credits, and he wasn't there. Was that a celebrity in disguise? — Jordan A., Warren, Ohio
DEAR JORDAN: That was Howard Hesseman of "WKRP in Cincinnati" fame, doing a cameo as the Chief who enters the mansion at the end of the 1985 comedy that was based on the classic board game. Sometimes stars that do cameos opt not to be billed at all rather than have their names appear in a less-than-optimal position. Such billing issues are also weighed against other aspects of a deal including compensation. In some cases, like this one, they also enjoy keeping the audience guessing.
DEAR STACY: Is J.J. Abrams going to do another "Star Trek" movie? — M.L., Sparks, Nev.
DEAR M.L.: Don't look for any "Star Trek: Into Darkness" follow-up from Abrams.
DEAR STACY: I saw a story about the "Wayne's World" reunion at the Motion Picture Academy. What else is Mike Myers up to? — Skyler W., Temecula, Calif.
DEAR SKYLER: Myers has several projects moving oh-so-very-slowly through development, including another "Austin Powers" movie. But it will be awhile before you see any of them, with no firm start dates yet slated.
DEAR STACY: What, if any, is the relationship between Food Network chef Giada De Laurentiis and the movie producer Dino De Laurentiis? — Larry W., Austin, Texas
DEAR LARRY: Giada is a granddaughter of the late movie maestro, whose credits range from "The Valachi Papers" and "Barbarella" to "Serpico," "Ragtime," "Three Days of the Condor" and "Conan the Barbarian.
