Dean Cain Happy to Play Military Man in Family Flick

Dean Cain says he’s getting a particular kick out of playing an Army colonel in his currently-shooting “Operation Cupcake” TV movie, because it’s a part that’s in line with a family tradition.  “I have a lot of military in my family, and have enormous respect for men and women in uniform, so this is a great thing for me,” says the actor who rose to fame as the Superman of the 1990s. 

According to Cain, his grandfather was a commander in the Navy, his uncle a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force.  “I’ve been out to Iraq with our troops.  I’ve visited them all around here.  I’ll do anything I can, charity-wise, to support them — the Wounded Warrior project.  Those guys, those men and women, are amazing, and I can’t do enough to support them,” he says.

As you no doubt deduced from the title, Cain’s character isn’t going to be seen in the middle of a war zone.  “My character has missed a lot of his kid’s life because he’s always been away on deployment.  So he’s back for a couple of months, and he’s considering whether to be promoted to a general or to leave the military.  It’s really about a guy coming back and trying to get back into a family.”  Kristy Swanson also stars as Cain’s wife.

In his real life, Cain is the devoted father of Christopher, 11, who sometimes travels with him to film locales — and in consideration of whom he likes doing family-friendly fare.  “My son is perfect, wonderful.  He’s so tall and so funny and so sweet.  He’s such a good boy,” he extols.  “I’m more proud about being his Dad than anything in the world.  He just got his report card and it was really good so I’m very happy.”

MEANWHILE:  “Operation Cupcake” is among nine original movies that the Hallmark Channel plans to air the first half of 2012.  And Cain was among the stars on hand the other night for the elegant sit-down dinner hosted by Crown Media Networks for visiting press at Pasadena’s landmark Tournament House, official home of the Tournament of Roses.  Also there were names including Steven Weber, Luke Perry, Candace Cameron Bure, Jane Seymour, Jamie Kennedy, Valerie Harper, Vivica Fox, Joely Fisher and the gorgeous Stacy Keibler, a.k.a. George Clooney’s girlfriend, who is not one of those tall women who wear flats to downplay their height. 

The 5’11” former WWE Diva with the famously long legs wore black pumps with rhinestone-encrusted heels that raised her into the stratosphere, towering over most of the guests.  She was an absolute knockout in her very short, white and black scoop-neck dress.

‘Man-bassador’ Stacy Keibler Keeps Widening Her Range

Stacy Keibler says she had a ball doing red carpet and backstage interview duty as Spike TV’s “Man-bassador” at its Guys Choice Awards of last week. So much so, she’d love to do more such chores.

“It was different to be on the other side of things,” says the famous WWE Diva-turned-“Dancing With the Stars” standout. “I had a lot of respect for the people on the red carpet and didn’t want to make anyone uncomfortable with questions, but this was more laid-back. We were able to have a lot of fun.”

The leggy blond has two movies coming up: “Dysfunctional Friends” that she describes as “a dark comedy about a group of friends who’ve lost touch since college.  ” Their very wealthy pal leaves them a vast fortune — on one condition. “They have to live in a house together a certain amount of time. They’ve gone on with their lives. They don’t all get along. There are ego issues. My character is a gold-digging, kind of a little bit of an easy girl, I guess you could say, out for the money and the athletes.”

Stacy’s other movie is Hallmark’s “Fixing Pete” with Dylan Bruno and Brooke Burns. “Brooke and I play best friends. She’s a journalist who has to make over this guy. And I’m a supermodel, who, once she makes him over, falls in love with him.” The ladies were fast friends off camera as well as on, according to Stacy. “Brooke is such a fantastic woman. We had a great time every single day on the set.”

Stacy Keibler Leads Fans to Fantasy Football Frolic

Stacy Keibler admits she’s no expert on fantasy football – yet – but the WWE diva-turned-actress knows enough to be hosting tonight’s (8/27) Superdraft VIP party at Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort.

“Fantasy football has become so big.  I’m excited about it.  I’m a big Baltimore Ravens fan.  I used to be a Ravens cheerleader and a season ticket holder,” she reminds.  “By getting involved in your draft you learn not only more about your own team, you get more involved in all the teams.”

Certainly, a lot of the same fellows who followed her wrestling career are bound to be aboard this odd-yet-growing phenomenon of men and occasionally women who spend money to create fantasy football teams.  In the case of Superdraft, it’s about football, but it’s also about partying.  Keibler points out that the relatively new Superdraft weekend festivities span several events, including a model search.  “Ashton’s (Kutcher) doing a live podcast.  Snoop Dogg is performing.”  Some 2,700 people are expected.

The popular blond personality, also remembered for her stint on “Dancing With the Stars,” just finished filming an episode of NBC’s “Chuck” for the fall – playing an undercover CIA agent.  “Steve Austin is also in it.  We know each other from our WWE days, you know.  We get to have a little bit of a fight.”

Keibler also has a movie in the can, “Dysfunctional Sons.”  She’d love to do a sitcom – or a role in a high-octane movie.  “My career has been more of a marathon than a sprint.  I get offers all the time to do things, but I try to be smart about what I do,” she says, “ to only do things that are right for me and make sense.”
