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.
(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?
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. 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!
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!
Well you two sounded wonderful together! Any chance you could grace the audience with a solo performance from Frosty?
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!
|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?|
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…
There's a lot of early buzz about the film. Do awards matter or are you more in it for the craft?
1. Well it's definitely nice to hear you're passionate about your craft and it shows! Do you think Hank was a better writer or director?
a. Well I hope he continues to write in the future! That's all the time we have for tonight, thanks for coming to the show. It's always great to have you!
|Today, you have fame, fortune, and a string of award-winning films under your belt, but our viewers would love to know: How did you get your start?|
After speaking to Bugsy Capone
You got to star in Jackie Woo's first American movie. Where you a fan of his work before?
1. So how was it working with him?
a. I bet. Well, it shows in your work.
Before you go I wanted to ask, I saw you talking with famed gangster Bugsy Capone outside the casino. Are you two acquainted?
| (YourName)! Ray Powers... SUCH a pleasure to finally meet you!|
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. 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. 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?
1. (Berate (Rival).)
1. That would explain the mood swings. Well, thanks for your time, (Your Name), and best of luck with Time Alien.
2. It's good of you to take the high road... unlike (Rival).
|(Your Name), thank you for meeting me.|
|(Your Name), good to see you again. How are you feeling about the release of One Last Job?|
1. Well, who could blame you? This is a new chapter in your career, after all. What do you want audiences to take away from this film?
a. A truly noble goal that any filmmaker would love to achieve. Last question: Would you direct again?
i. Well... hopefully, one will come along! Good luck tonight!
|Welcome to the Powers Program! I'm your host Ray Powers and joining me today is (Your Name), star of Rebel Hearts!|
(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. 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. Well, I think we'd all love to see you give it a go sometime! Well folks, that's out time for tonight…
|Welcome to the Powers Program! I'm your host Ray Powers. My guest today is (Your Name), star of the new crime drama, Ripper!|
Ripper is a modern day take on the story of Jack the Ripper, in which you play Detective Abberline. How was it to take on Jack the Ripper?
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. 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!
| Welcome to the Powers Program! I'm your host Ray Powers and joining me today is (Your Name), also known as Captain Sky Wyatt of the Starfly!|
Now (Your Name), I heard they built an entire star ship for the shooting set of Starfly What did you think the first time you saw the ship?
1. Haha, I bet it was pretty impressive!
Being the captain, your character had to make all the tough calls! Do you think you could be the captain of a starship?
b. I don't blame you, but your fans might disagree! Well folks, that's our time for tonight...
Be sure to check out the Starfly trilogy and we'll see you next time! GOODNIGHT!
|Studio Time (less than B-list)|
(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!
|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. Really? Wow! Thanks for chatting with me!
2. The Break, huh? Best of luck when that starts filming! Thanks for chatting with me!
|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?|
In Toonworld you play the role of Morgan Quinn. In the entire movie, you're the ONLY character that isn't animated...
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. 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!
Well everyone, that's all for today's episode. Thank you and be sure to go see Toonworld at a theater near you!
