Hollywood Reporter Publishes My Piece On The Rob Zombie Film!

For those who may be wondering how I crossed paths with the likes of Rob Zombie and ended up handing over the reins to my very personal story, I have penned this essay, which just appeared in the online edition of The Hollywood Reporter. I originally entitled it I Walked (And Talked) With A Zombie, but the editor explained that they had to go with a title whose key words would trigger the randomly generated algorithms or self-hating logarithms or some sort of newfangled whatchamacallits. At any rate, it’s a fuller explanation of how the RAISED EYEBROWS movie project came to be and why this may not be as outrageous an idea as it might seem.



Terry Motley of motleypr.com made this terrific 23-second animated promo about RAISED EYEBROWS – and the news that it’s going to be made into a film!  In addition to being able to order the Kindle and Audio versions of my book on Amazon, you can always click on my SHOP page and order a signed or personalized copy of the newly revised and expanded paperback version!

BIG News! A Film Version of RAISED EYEBROWS Is On Its Way!!

This is news I’ve been sitting on for quite some time, but now it can be told:


Rob Zombie might seem an odd choice to direct a film version of RAISED EYEBROWS, but that happens to be his favorite book of all time (!) and he is positively passionate about doing justice to it.  Oren Moverman co-wrote the screenplay for the recently released Brian Wilson biopic, “Love & Mercy,” so he is a terrific choice as co-writer on this one and a very skilled screenwriter.  Casting is still to be decided upon, but watch this space for updates.  Meanwhile, here’s Rob & me – the Odd Couple!

Steve Stoliar & Rob Zombie - The oddest Hollywood couple since Ernest Borgnine proposed to Ethel Merman.

On April 6th, 2015, The Hollywood Reporter published a piece I wrote on the occasion of legendary manager-producer Jack Rollins’ 100th birthday. This is the man who launched the careers of such notables as Woody Allen, Dick Cavett, Robin Williams, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, Joan Rivers and Harry Belafonte.

Vintage Videos Unearthed!

I recently had some of my TV appearances digitized and uploaded to YouTube.  Most of them are from when I was publicizing the initial 1996 edition of RAISED EYEBROWS (“Inside Edition,” “Mysteries & Scandals”) but there’s also my audio interview with Elvis Mitchell on KCRW’s “The Treatment” from when I was banging the drum on behalf of the newly revised and expanded edition.

Some of the interviews include brief clips from my “home movies” of Groucho.  Check ’em out!
