Jennifer Beals inspires a song

The Lovebugs are a very popular pop band in Switzerland and on their latest album “Life Is Today” one particular track caught our attention. The song in question is titled “Jennifer Beals”.
Adrian, the lead singer and writer of the band, tells what inspired his song: “ I saw Jennifer Beals in Flashdance when I was a teenager back in the eighties and had, like most men, a crush on her.  By chance I saw the movie again a few months ago on tv. It brought back so many memories and I thought that it would be great to turn them into a song. The song tells about somebody who lives for passion, somebody who gives everything for her (or his) dream and don’t care about what other people might think or say”.

It’s a good song (and album), check it out on Itunes

Jennifer Beals to star in Jazz film ‘Lord of Vinyl’

Jennifer Beals is set to topline and produce the indie jazz pic “The Lord of Vinyl,” which will mark the directorial debut of Dennis Bartok, who wrote the script and will also produce with Patrick Cunningham (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”).
Pic follows the bittersweet life and comic despair of a lonely 40-something Angeleno who’s obsessed with jazz and hides from the disappointment of the world inside the beauty of music. He unexpectedly finds himself exploring the possibility of new love with an unhappily married post office worker (Beals) just as he attempts a reconciliation with his estranged 11-year old daughter, now living with his ex-wife and former best friend.

Could Jennifer be back in Castle?

Andrew W Marlowe, creator of the tv series Castle, tells TVGuide about Jennifer Beals’ character Sophia: “I always knew that she was going to be the bad guy and we were going to kill her in the end. But I also know that in any sort of CIA-inspired story, nobody is ever really dead for certain, I like to have my cake and eat it too. It’s all depending on where our storytelling takes us and assuming that Jennifer had a good time and wants to come back and play with us.”
