Based on a chilling true story, Lionsgate’s "The Haunting in
Connecticut" charts one family's terrifying,
real-life encounter with the dark forces of the supernatural. It
is due to be released on March 27, 2009. Read the entire story
Elias is in New Orleans filming "My Own
Love Song" about a wheelchair-bound singer and her best friend who
embark on a roadtrip to Memphis. Due for a 2009 release, the
film also stars Nick Nolte, Rene Zellwegger. Forest Whitaker.
For all curious fans who have e-mailed
me, I have confirmed that it is NOT Elias in the new
where the parents are dressed strangely at the end). The unknown
actor bears a striking resemblance, but it is not him. And no,
it's not Christopher Meloni either.....
September 24, 2008:
The season premiere of CSI N.Y. is going
to be September 24, 2008. The episode is supposed to pick up
where the season finale ended last season.
Last season, Elias played a bank robber / murderer who may or may not
be who he says he is. Is he really the bank robber or just a pawn for
the real robbers? Season 5 will kick off with
Mac (Gary Sinise) still held
hostage, and the team trying to figure out how to help him. In the
aftermath of a bank heist gone bad, Mac wakes up in a submerged car
with no memory of how he got there.

a future episode of the TNT series "Saving Grace," starring Holly
Hunter. No air date set yet.

Well that may be bad for Arnold

much of Elias in new movies to begin with! Now instead of waiting
seven months, we have to wait more than a year!
