Background Trivia

Ray Powers is a News Anchor for Star News and host of the Powers Program. Powers seems to only care about famous celebrities and pushes the less famous onto his assistant, Trevor Brinksley, who is a dead ringer of himself! This along with being voted Best Looking Celeb, shows Ray is incredibly vain.

After completing certain films, you have the chance to appear on the Power Program, where Ray will ask you some questions about the film. Powers will also be on the red carpet to greet you at the STAR Awards.

Frosty - Part II
Welcome everyone to the Powers Program, I'm your host Ray Powers. Today's guest is (Your Name), star of the new two-part animated blockbuster, Frosty.

Creative partners Sami Pizzicatti and Shiro Liu are notoriously picky about choosing the actors they work with for their animated epics.

Tell us, (Your Name), what was it like to work on Frosty with Sami and Shiro?
Speech Great! They're lovely! Energy 3
Speech (Come back later.)

(Your Name), not only did Sami co-write Frosty but she also directed the motion capture work for both parts of the film. Did you do your own stunts?

1. Speech Yep! All of them!
2. Speech It's mostly CGI... Cash+50 XP+5

2. Tell me, when you're fighting those ice monsters, is there someone with you in the motion capture room or do you have to use your imagination?
a. Speech Imagination is key! Cash+50 XP+5
b. Speech Real ice monsters.

a. That sounds like a lot of fun and an easy way to win a battle. Rest assured everyone, no imaginary ice monsters were harmed in the making of this movie!
b. ??

Just like Frosty, this interview is so big we had to break it in two parts! Stay tuned everyone, we'll be right back after a quick commercial break!
Speech (Smile at audience.)

And we're back with (Your Name), star of the brand new two-part animated epic, Frosty, from co-creators Sami Pizzicatti and Shiro Liu!

(Your Name), Shiro co-wrote Frosty I & II, but I believe she also directed your voice over work and you two actually had a few duets together!
Speech That's right Energy 3
Speech (Come back later.)

Well I have to say, the songs were very catchy. They really get stuck in your head! Do you find yourself still humming or singing the songs?
Speech Oh, all the time!

Well you two sounded wonderful together! Any chance you could grace the audience with a solo performance from Frosty?

1. Speech Absolutely! Cash+50 XP+5
2. Speech How about two songs?

1. That sounds fantastic! Why don't you close the show with your song as we wrap today's episode. Thank you everyone, be sure to go see Frosty Part I and Part II!
Speech (Perform song.)

A Foreign Affair
Hello everyone and welcome to the Powers Program! I'm your host Ray Powers and joining me today is (Your Name). Welcome to the show! How are you?

Speech (Come back later.)

Good to hear! You're fresh off the set of A Foreign Affair based on the true story of how Hank Watkinson and his wife fell in love…

1. Speech The craft comes first. Cash+50 XP+4

b. Speech A nightmare.

a. I bet. Well, it shows in your work.

b. ??

2. ??

Before you go I wanted to ask, I saw you talking with famed gangster Bugsy Capone outside the casino. Are you two acquainted?
Speech No.

Speech Thanks.

Plugging Away
(YourName)! Ray Powers... SUCH a pleasure to finally meet you!

Speech We've already met.
Speech (Come back later.)

Oh, good! I LOVE knowing famous people. You know how it is. Anyway, on to Time Alien: Early reviews have been strong, with most critics saying that this could lead to an award nomination for you, and early ticket sales indicating that you have a hit on your hands. Did you forsee the film's getting this sort of reception?

1. Speech Of course!
2. Speech (Be modest.)

1. A frank and honest answer! Well... I hope you don't have your expectations too high! Or... I hope you win! Hampton Martin has described you as "a great actor, mostly because of my direction. Great nevertheless, though."

2. So... modest! It'll be difficult to be modest about this: Hampton Martin has described you as "a great actor, mostly because of my direction. Great nevertheless, though."

How is your working relationship with Mr. Martin?

1. Speech Great!
2. Speech (Berate Hampton.)

1. Speaking of relationships, you were spotted with (Rival), and sources say she tried to give you a phony apology for the feud between you two.

b. Wow! So, the feeling is not so mutual between you two? Let's hope you sort it out before the inevitable sequel, huh? Speaking of relationships, you were spotted with (Rival), and sources say she tried to give you a phony apology for the feud between you two.

What exactly is her/his problem? Is it something that will be defined in the next DSM?

Rebel Hearts
Welcome to the Powers Program! I'm your host Ray Powers and joining me today is (Your Name), star of Rebel Hearts!

Speech (Wave to fans.) Energy3
Speech (Come back later.)

(Your Name), Rebel Hearts was filmed in a rather unorthodox fashion: by having the actors completely improvise their lines…

What was it like working completely without a script? I imagine for an actor that was a bit like walking a tightrope with no net...

1. Speech It was liberating Cash+50 XP+5
2. Speech It was difficult!

1. Well let me tell you, you made it look easy! Truly wonderful job.

Given the amount of dialogue you improvised, quite well might I add, do you think you'll ever turn to writing in the future?

1. Speech Maybe one day! Cash+50 XP+5
2. Speech No way!

1. Well, I think we'd all love to see you give it a go sometime! Well folks, that's out time for tonight…

1. Speech Pretty disturbing!
2. Speech Honestly? I had fun! Cash+50 XP+5

1. ??

2. I can only imagine. The movie starts off suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat! This film is not for the faint of heart…

If you hadn't become an actor, do you think you could have become a homicide detective?

1. Speech I don't think so...Cash+50 XP+5
2. Speech Absolutely!

1. I don't blame you! Well folks that's our time for tonight. Check out the new crime drama Ripper, if you dare, and have a good night!

(Your Name), right? That's fantastic! Unfortunately, I'm waiting for someone a little more... um... famous to talk to. Why don't you go ahead and talk to my assistant-slash-protege Trevor Brinksley. He's really good at pretending to care about what the non-famous thing and say!
Speech (Leave quietly.)

Studio Time (B-List+)
(Your Name)! What brings you here? Can you give me any hot stories or gossip... maybe about your feud with Rival... to report on?
1. Speech (Gossip about Rival.) XP+5
2. Speech (Talk about yourself.)

1. Really? Wow! Thanks for chatting with me!
Speech No problem!

2. The Break, huh? Best of luck when that starts filming! Thanks for chatting with me!
Speech No problem!

And we're back! My last guest tonight is (Your Name), star of the brand new MOSTLY animated film, Toonworld! (Your Name), this is Mya Pinelli's second story and it's already set to become a huge success. What was it like working with Mya?

Speech Wonderful! Cash+50 XP+5

In Toonworld you play the role of Morgan Quinn. In the entire movie, you're the ONLY character that isn't animated...

What was it like acting with a completely animated cast of characters?
Speech It was fun!

I'm glad to hear that! I know a lot of actors refuse to work with imaginary characters, but I guess you've got a powerful imagination!

Mya Pinelli's Harriet Potter story spawned many sequels. Would you like to see Toonworld become a series as well? Would you do a sequel?

1. Speech Absolutely! Cash+50 XP+5
2. Speech Probably not.

1. I guess we'll see what the future holds, but I can tell your fans would already love to see you in a sequel to Toonworld!
2. ??

Well everyone, that's all for today's episode. Thank you and be sure to go see Toonworld at a theater near you!
Speech (Wave goodbye.)
