X-MEN SEQUEL UPDATE
Ralph Winter, producer of the X-Men sequel, told The Continuum that production will be moving from Vancouver next month.
"We hope to finish up in the mountains near Calgary, hoping for snow," Winter told The Continuum on Monday. "Can't really talk about the scenes we are shooting up there, but they should be spectacular."

Here are some of the comments from the interviews:
Hugh Jackman on revealing some skin: "Wolverine's up on Alkali Lake and there's soliders and he's running naked - and I was 'Whoa, hang on a second! When did naked slip in there?' I rang my agent and said, 'Do I have a butt clause in here or what?'
Jackman on the Wolverine/Jean Grey/Cyclops triangle: "There is a kind of alluded to a little triangle going on in the first between Jean and Cyclops and my character, and that comes to a pretty hefty resolution."
Kelly Hu, who plays Lady Deathstrike, on her silver finger nails: "They kind of match my outfit."
Director Bryan Singer, elaborating: "She's sort of the alter ego of Wolverine."
Jackman on Wolverine's hair: "A can and a half of hairspray and about two hours later."
Jackman on fight scenes with Hu: "Poor Kelly Hu. I've basically given her a concussion and kicked her in the stomach.
Hu on fight scenes with Jackman: "But I get Hugh back in probably more ways than I should. (laughs) All by accident of course."
* Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, who plays Mystique, will be a guest on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
JOSS WHEDON'S NEW ANGEL EPISODE
Angel creator Joss Whedon is writing and directing "Spin The Bottle," the Sunday, Nov. 10 episode on The WB.
Here's how the network describes the episode:
"When Lorne (Andy Hallett) performs a spell on Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) to restore her memory, it inadvertently causes the gang to revert back to their high school personas and leaves them with no memories of each other. Eventually, they discover that the only way to reverse the spell is to kill a vampire, just as Angel (David Boreanaz) realizes that he is one."
