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 14th, 2015, The Hollywood Reporter published a piece I wrote on the affectionate, entertaining, and star-studded memorial I attended honoring the late and much-loved “Laugh-In” announcer, Gary Owens. Read all about it (and him)!
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. Read all about this remarkable man!
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!
You have stumbled across the official website of Steve Stoliar; screenwriter, actor, producer, and author of RAISED EYEBROWS: My Years Inside Groucho’s House.
In addition to providing photos, news, reviews and interview links dealing with Steve and RAISED EYEBROWS, this website is the only place where you can order a signed or inscribed (personalized) copy of the new expanded edition of the book directly from the author!
To those who’ve already ordered a copy – thanks and enjoy!
And many thanks for stopping by!
