Richard Eden tries his hand at screenwriting, producing

Well, here's a fresh face for the BRBTV News Blog ... Richard Eden, who was the stalwart Brick Wallace on "Santa Barbara," long-lost mystery child of Sophia Capwell and Lionel Lockridge. So what the heck is he up to, nowadays?

The Canadian-born Eden has two movie projects in the works, actually, both classified as in postproduction. One of Eden's current projects is one that he wrote and produced, as well. "The Intervention" is directed and co-written by Shannon Hile and is an independent horror flick. The plotline from the IMDb: "On September 17th 2002, eight people gathered north of Los Angeles for what began as a routine intervention. What unfolded in this isolated cabin is a story of rage, violence and insanity. The horrific events of this autumn evening were captured on film ... What actually happened still remains a mystery."

Eden plays Tom in the film. The name of the production company is Think Pictures, and the movie was filmed in L.A.

Eden's other current project, "Disappearing in America," is directed and written by Erik Rodgers. We haven't dug up much on this one, other than it has a plot involving the Irish Republican Army and also features Anna-Marie Wayne and Mark Pelligrino. The name of Eden's character is Mickey.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: Canadian "Dallas" fans, rejoice! "Dallas" will return to the fall schedule of TV Land Canada, the CNW Group reports.
