Heather Locklear has surely had one of the best careers of anyone who starred on "Dynasty." Powerhouse roles on Fox's "Melrose Place," ABC's "Spin City," even ABC's "Boston Legal" and others have kept her star high in the sky for decades. Now, besides working on the still-to-be-sold-and-scheduled TV series "Women of a Certain Age," in which Locklear headlines as a divorcee who begins a new life with two best friends, Locklear has a couple new movie projects in the works since we last checked in.
"Oranges" is a film set for 2007 release that has a great cast: Tom Arnold, Tom Sizemore, Jill Hennessy, Beverly D'Angelo, Marina Sirtis of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," even Orson Bean from our beloved 1990s "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" on CBS. "Oranges" also features Claire Yarlett, our own Bliss Colby of "The Colbys" -- now where has she been? The flick is being written and directed by Joseph Merhi, from a script that originated in 1990 but was on hold until last year, according to the IMDb.

Locklear is also working on a new TV movie called "Angels Fall," currently filming in Canada. She plays a chef who "moves to a small town in Wyoming after her Boston restaurant is shut down because of a fatal shooting," according to the IMDb. Locklear's costar in that film, Gary Hudson, played Skip Maitland on "Dynasty" and showed up in an episode of "The Colbys," as well. (And he was Blackie Simpson on another BRBTV show, "Santa Barbara"!) Big-screen name Johnathon Schaech takes to the small screen for a supporting role.
The film is based on the book by Nora Roberts and will air on Lifetime on a Monday night in February, according to MovieWeb.com and ElitesTV.com.
