I spent a few weeks transferring our 600+ videos to a brand new media archive! Unfortunately, the previous videos script has become obsolete and our web host will no longer be supporting it. It was a lot of hard work, but I feel it is definitely worth it in the long run. Some of the positives are improved stability and less database errors, the layout matches the rest of the site, you can easily rate and share videos through social media, and you can also post comments about videos the same way you post comments here. Please let me know if you encounter any broken links! I’ll try to add more features in the left sidebar to make your viewing experience even better. I also still need to add a lot more “White Collar” clips and will try to work on them the next few months. Thanks, and hope you like it!
I added photos of Matt attending the “Space Station 76″ Premiere at the 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival, Sony’s Acquisitions Group SXSW Party, and the “Space Station 76″ Party At De Nolet back on March 8th. Thanks to my friend Crayen for sending me all the photos! I’m spending a few days in Los Angeles, but will catch up on any other updates I missed when I get back home.
Update! Here are some videos from the 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival.
Do you like to watch yourselves on screen?
MARISA: It would be hilarious to say, “I love it, there’s nothing better than a Marisa Coughlan performance.”
MATT: You always hope that you are involved in the story that you can sort of remove your ego from the equation and sort of see the story objectively. But it’s difficult, you know. Certain jobs maybe it’s easier than others.
MARISA: This one is a little bit easier because it’s its own world. It’s not a random episode of a TV show. We’re on a spaceship; we’re in the 70’s kind of world. So you do get to escape into it a little bit. But I typically find it difficult to watch myself.
MATT: Yeah, it’s pretty hard.
Tell us a little more about the movie.
MATT: What I responded to for this movie was the whole idea suburban duality having grown up in the suburbs myself and space is this sort of gave it the sense of alienation but having that idea that if we just live on the right space station, if we do the right thing, our lives will be perfect and we won’t have any problems and then it’s like one of those great John Cheever short stories near that time period where everyone’s shadow starts to slowly bubble to the surface and you see their inner demons come to life. Having grown up in the suburbs myself I respond to that. I play Ted who is married to Misty and is a mechanic and he very much wants to fix things. He’s one of those people where no good deed goes unpunished. He wants to do the right thing, is really trying to create the right life for his wife and it’s just circumstances not going his way.
And you’re kind of bitter, aren’t you?
MARISA: I am. What I liked about it with the character is you don’t necessarily totally get what’s going on with my character right away. I seem like a nice wife and a nice mom and then it doesn’t take long for “Oh no, she’s a horrible human being. She is awful.”
MATT: In Misty’s defense I think Ted made a lot of promises to her that I think. Having come from earth which is not a very desirable place to live at this point, he probably had to work his way up in the ranks . I think he promised Misty a lot of things that just did not work.
MARISA: This is true, this is true.
MATT:I mean how else could I be with someone this hot? I promise her false things.

The HBO original film, “The Normal Heart” premieres Sunday, May 25th at 9PM/8C only on HBO.
“White Collar” fans around the globe have joined forces to Tweet #whitecollarforS6 on Monday, February 24th at 12:00 noon EST – 9:00 am PST – 6:00 pm Europe Centrale. We’re hoping to get #whitecollarforS6 trending.
By this time, USA Network series White Collar would normally be deeply in preproduction, getting ready to start filming in March. But not this year. It’s already mid-February, and there is still no decision on the future of the buddy crime drama whose most recent fifth season ended two weeks ago. I hear there has been some communication between USA and White Collar producer Fox TV Studios but no meaningful dialogue so far. Given the way Season 5 ended — with a cliffhanger involving the abduction of Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) — it is safe to assume that there will be some sort of continuation, likely a conclusion for the series. The question is what that sixth and final installment will be. I hear the network has been mulling a short miniseries to wrap the story in the vein of Showtime’s The Big C, while the studio would prefer a traditional final season. While Collar‘s status as one of USA’s signature series would weigh in favor of the second option. All of USA’s other established series – Monk, Burn Notice (also produced by FtvS), Psych and In Plain Sight — have received a proper send-off with a final season (While USA prefers to announce the end of its series when their last seasons hit the air for tune-in reasons, all producers are told at the time of the final renewal so they can plan their shows’ end game). Moved to fall for the first time since its first season, White Collar got dinged up against in-season competition but rebounded in January when the conclusion of Season 5 averaged 2.8 million viewers in Live+Same Day, up 22% from fall, and 955,000 adults 18-49, up 32%.
I added photos of Matt at The Great American Songbook event honoring Bryan Lourd last night in NYC.
Thanks to my friend Crayen for donating all the fantastic photos!
