Inside Track

Hi! Hope you’re enjoying the sultry days of summer. We here at TB certainly are. Although staffers have been hitting the beach as often as possible, a severe case of movie madness seems to have taken hold of the office. And little wonder! Though there hasn’t been one huge blockbuster, this summer offers a wide and wild variety of flicks, with enough fine films out—and coming out in the next two months—to make any movie fan happy. Though The Lost Boys won’t be officially released until next month, we have had the chance to catch this film already, and we can tell you these Boys are guys to watch! Aside from Corey Feldman, whom we spoke with last month, Boys features the very handsome Jason Patric and cutie Corey Haim, who’s been on the small screen lately in Roomies. It looks like Roomies won’t be making it back for next season, but anything could happen in Hollywood! Anyway, we’ve got a chat with Corey for you on page 19, and a special sneak preview of The Lost Boys on pages 52 and 53. Enjoy! . . . In other movie news, we’ve just come back from a meeting with Kirk Cameron, who’s been busy wrapping up filming on his upcoming flick, Like Father, Like Son. Take a peek at page 20 to see what he has to say on the subject . . . TB also paid a surprise visit to the set of Masquerade, in which Rob Lowe stars as a skipper. See the results of that visit on page 50 . . . Madonna, whose problems with hubby Sean Penn have been very much in the news of late, will also have a film coming out next month. Let TB give you a peek behind the scenes of Who’s That Girl on page 34. Enjoy! . . . Another thing we hope you’ll enjoy is the new TB special, “A Blast From The Past.” Available at the same newsstands and bookstores that carry TB, this very special special focuses on the top stars of the ’60s and ’70s, including The Monkees, Paul Revere and the Raiders, David Cassidy, Bobby Sherman and The Osmonds. It’s filled with plenty of pictures, quizzes, and interviews. A perfect way to spend a summer day! . . . Also perfect for all you fans of ’60s rock ’n’ roll (and we know you’re out there from the volume of letters that have been pouring into the office), we’ve got part two of our special excerpt from Davy Jones’ book, They Made A Monkee Out Of Me, on page 57, and an original reprint on The Monkees from 1968 (page 55) . . . Aside from the old favorites, we’ve got some bright new faces for you this month. Nick Kamen, whose first single was produced by Madonna (tough break, hmmm?) is certainly good-looking enough to be a model. And that’s exactly how England-born Nick supported himself for several years, before throwing himself wholeheartedly into a music career. We talk to Nick about modeling, music, and growing up on page 39. Another new guy in town is Johnny Depp, the shining new star of 21 Jump Street, who was a rock ’n’ roller before becoming an actor (hey, maybe he and Nick Kamen can…). Anyway, we’ll introduce Johnny on page 42. There’s plenty more inside, but we’re out of room. So, get going! See you inside.
