New York Times December 25, 2004

This is not the Christmas present we promised earlier - you have to come back for that later tonight when Santa's had some rest - but the New York Times also gave us a very Merry Christmas!

"Welles" score

Music composer David Mansfield, a founding member of Bruce Hornsby and The Range, is scoring Vincent's short film "5 Minutes, Mr Welles"....

"It is a fantasy about Orson Welles in his bungalow at Shepparton Studios while filming "The Third Man". Completely wonderful; look for it next year at a film festival near you!"

The talented composer has a long list of credits to include work with Bob Dylan, T. Bone Burnett (Sam Shepard's Tooth of Crime), and Johnny Cash. Mansfield's awards include a Grammy award in 1986 for Best New Artist (Bruce Hornsby and The Range) and 4 Gold and Platinum Records with Dylan and Hornsby. Hornsby was formerly with the Grateful Dead. :o}

Vincent won't be replaced

Excerpted from USAToday - December 6, 2004

Lately, the rumor mill has been in overdrive about other changes both real and imagined. Wolf sets things straight:

• Vincent D'Onofrio, star of Criminal Intent (Sundays, 9 p.m. ET/PT), is not being replaced by Chris Noth. Rumors started swirling that the combustible D'Onofrio posted anti-Bush screeds on the set, irritating other cast and crew members. Rumors were compounded when the star had two fainting spells, forcing a brief hospital stay.

The Bush-bashing rumors amounted to "tabloid journalism," Wolf says, and the offending "signage" actually took place on L&O'supcoming fourth edition, Trial by Jury, which D'Onofrio has nothing to do with. Wolf acknowledges that Noth, previously on L&O, was on a short list of possible replacements drafted during the hospitalization. But D'Onofrio is back, so "that step was not necessary. Vincent's done an incredible job the past 3½ years, and I would like him to be there for the rest of the show's run."
