Michael Brainard, who took over the role of Ted Capwell in the latter years of "Santa Barbara," has a couple movie projects scheduled for 2006 release. One is a horror flick called "Killing Ariel," written and directed by Fred Calvert. Brainard plays a leading character named Rick in this evidently low-budget thriller. To see some photos and learn more, check out the film's website: http://killingariel.com.
The other project has some bigger names attached to it, namely Marky-Mark Wahlberg (one of BRB's faves, if she does say so herself). In "Invincible," a Disney flick due in theaters August 25, Wahlberg plays a Philadelphia Eagles fan who, when he loses his wife and his job, decides to show up for an open tryout for the team. Brainard plays an Eagles coach in the film, directed by Ericson Core (who's done work on "The Fast and the Furious") and written by Brad Gann. Greg Kinnear makes an appearance in the film.
