Alessandra Torresani on American Horror Story tonight, new interviews with James Marsters, Scott Porter & Christopher Heyerdahl

Okay, for real this time:

Alessandra Torresani guest stars on American Horror Story tonight at 10 pm on FX. Here is the synopsis for both Halloween episodes, from THR:
In Part 1, Vivien (Connie Britton) and Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) met the house's previous tenants, a gay couple (played by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears) obsessed with decorating the home just right for Halloween so the Harmons can unload the property.

In addition, Tate (Evan Peters) and Violet (Taissa Farmiga) inch closer when the couple takes advantage of the old Halloween loophole that all the ghosts come out to walk the streets for the night as they hit the beach for their first official date.
Alessandra plays Steph, one of the unwelcome visitors on that date. For previews, go to Sci Fi Mafia.

Ryan Robbins tweets that one of his recent films, Marilyn, will premiere at the Whistler Film Festival, which runs from November 30 to December 4.

For production stills and more details about the film, visit the official site at Here is some info from the press release (PDF link):
2011 / BC / 106minutes
Directed and written by Christopher Petry
Starring Allison Mack and Simone Bailly
A bank robber (Ryan Robbins) on the lam reluctantly takes a runaway young woman (Allison Mack) under his wing. Distracted by this volatile girl, he struggles to keep his head in the game and stay under the legal radar, but her dreams of becoming a singer sidetrack his plans and change him irrevocably. Filmed in a gritty 1970s style. Marilyn is based on a story written in Leavenworth Prison by Patrick "Paddy" Mitchell of the infamous Stopwatch Gang.
Another recent film of Ryan's, Apollo 18, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 27. Cinemablend has the details.

Also out on DVD and Blu-ray on December 27: In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds with Aleks Paunovic. Dread Central has the DVD artwork and list of bonus features.

Doppelgänger Paul with Ben Cotton will also be screened at the Whistler Film Festival.

Panou tweets that he will start working on another TV film next week. No details yet.

Mike Dopud tweets that he starts working on a new film called In No Particular Order tomorrow. There is an official Tumblr for the film at Ben Cotton will be in it, too.

Jonas Pate has signed on to direct the independent crime drama Way Down South from a script he wrote with his brother Josh. The film will be shot in New Orleans next spring. Emmy Rossum, Nasir "Nas" Jones and Jack Huston will play the leads. Here is what Variety says:
The film tells the story of a gambler and small time crook, played by Huston, who steals a Civil War-era sword from a museum to finance his escape from a loan shark who staked him in a losing poker game.

Jones has been cast as the best friend and Rossum will play the former love interest. Country music singer Hank Williams III has also been cast.
And some interviews.

The Coventry Telegraph has a great one with James Marsters. He talks about his work on Buffy, Smallville, and Dragonball Evolution among other things. Here is the part about Caprica and James' upcoming projects:
You have since gone on to appear in Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica, which didn't last very long. That must have been hugely disappointing. What were your experiences working on that?
Excellent actors, directors and producers and crew and an outrageously challenging theme - being that we are watching people destroy their future. I wonder if the series were short lived because that's just too close to home?

Since then, you have been in the remake of Hawaii Five-0 and also appeared in Supernatural. What's next for you?
An indie film that I'm filming this November (can't really give any details) and an episode of Metal Hurlant for French TV based on a comic book that gave raise to Heavy Metal - one of my favourite animated films. I'm also doing a new series of book on tapes. The band's (Ghost of the Robot) new album Murphy's Law will be available on both i-Tunes and Amazon at the end of November.

Crave Online talked to Christopher Heyerdahl and the rest of the cast of Hell on Wheels, which premieres this Sunday on AMC.

Ten Year with Scott Porter has been picked up for distribution by Anchor Bay and will be released in the U.S. next spring.

Scott was on E! News the other day, along with Shane West (Nikita) and Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer). He talked about Hart of Dixie, The Good Wife, X-Men, and Friday Night Lights among other things. Here are the clips:
