9.9.04 - TV Guide Online: Neve Campbell Kisses and Tells
Neve Campbell takes risks as an actress, but she doesn't consider same-sex smooches one of 'em anymore. As the femme fatale star of When Will I Be Loved (opening Friday in limited release), she shares a kiss (and much more) with a blond gal pal played by Joelle Carter (TV's Wonderland).
"This is like the sixth time I've had a kissing scene with a woman on film," she laughingly tells TV Guide Online, reminding us of her lip-lock with Olivia D'Abo on Party of Five and her poolside buss with Denise Richards in Wild Things, among others. "I don't know if there are many Hollywood actresses who haven't kissed a woman on camera."
True enough. Still, Campbell leaves few taboos (or costars!) untasted in Loved, which offers a different twist on the Indecent Proposal theme. Here's the familiar sitch: Neve's sleazy boyfriend is offered a small fortune by a wealthy businessman (Sopranos star Dominic Chianese) in exchange for an "introduction" to the lady. That's when things get freaky.
"Once this proposition is made to her, she realizes [her beau] is not what she'd hoped for and that he's underestimating her intelligence," the 30-year-old thesp says. "So she turns on him. I'm kinda bad! It's totally fun."
Campbell bares all for her art in Loved, which opens with a rather provocative peep at her, um, really enjoying herself during a shower. (Picture a Clairol Herbal Essences moment gone overboard.) "I've had the no-nudity clause in my film contracts in the past because I felt some scenes were for box-office draw and nothing else," she says. "This film is about my character's sexual exploration and her power and curiosity, so it made sense. I questioned it a bit, but I'm an actor and it seemed good for the film. I'm older and more comfortable with myself now, and I'm not as concerned with other people's opinions."
Given the liberty she's enjoyed on the big screen, Campbell isn't looking to do another TV series anytime soon. "At the moment, it's films," she says. "Party of Five was great for me, obviously, but it's a lot of work. You have 16-hour days nine months a year and it's hard to have any kind of career beyond that. I like doing different stuff and challenging myself. When you're playing one character, it gets a little tedious."

9.7.04 - TV Guide Online: PO5 Hottie Gets Lost
by Shawna Malcom
He battled Hodgkin's disease on Party of Five and death itself on UPN's short-lived supernatural drama Haunted. But Matthew Fox may face his biggest challenge yet on Lost, the new ABC thriller from Alias creator J.J. Abrams. He plays Jack, a surgeon who survives a plane crash, only to be stranded on a remote island that is also home to a mysteriously lethal (and unseen) creature.
TV Guide Online: How did you get involved in Lost?
Matthew Fox: I came in and [auditioned]. At that point, the script was very confidential. Nobody was really getting a chance to read it. I don't usually go into auditions or meetings until I've read the material, but my agents and managers said, "This is really gonna be a big one. It's J.J. Abrams." So I went in, and J.J. took me to an office and gave me the script. I sat down to read it, but he kept running into the room every 20 minutes going, "What do you think?" I was like, "You gotta give me a chance to finish it!" [Laughs] It was such a page-turner. I said I'd play anyone, it was just so fantastic. J.J. said, "I really think you're Jack."
TVGO: What can you tell us about Jack?
Fox: He's sort of the moral center. He's the doctor, so he gets cast as the hero by this group of people, but I think he's gonna be a pretty reluctant hero. There are times [when] he doesn't feel equipped to be the person everybody wants or needs him to be. I'm reticent to talk too much about backstory, but Jack's trying to leave some things [in his past] behind. [Through flashbacks,] we'll be examining Jack's relationship with his father and who he wanted Jack to be.
TVGO: So 'fess up. What kind of creature is terrorizing the island?
Fox: Nobody knows, except J.J. and [co-creator] Damon [Lindelof]. People are really curious. Is it a monster? I've heard somebody say "the beings." I prefer to find out as we go along because Jack obviously wouldn't have any idea what's coming next.
TVGO: How would you rate your survival skills?
Fox: I think I'd do all right. I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming, and I spent a lot of time in the mountains backpacking. I can build a fire. A box of Bic lighters would be good to have on the island, though. That'd be a whole lot easier than rubbing two rocks together.
TVGO: Describe your worst airline flight.
Fox: I've had some pretty bumpy stuff that's made me nervous, but I've never had anything really dramatic happen. I think after the show premieres, though, anytime anyone in the cast gets on a flight, [the other passengers] will be like, "I think I'll take the next one."
TVGO: What was the last thing you actually lost?
Fox: My wallet, last night. I [live] right on the beach, and I left it by the pool and I think somebody snagged it. I'm actually in the process of canceling my credit cards.
