Brendan Fehr talks about Majandra and B+T

I just adore Majandra’s and Brendan’s friendship. Check out what he said about her and B+T.

Finally, are there are other things that you’re working on during the hiatus, in the event that the pickup happens?

I do have a project coming in New Mexico that I can’t talk about yet, but I’m looking forward to. The other project that I’ve been working on is called ‘Baron and Toluca,’ and it’s with Majandra [Delfino], my ‘Roswell’ co-star. We’ve created the show, and we’re in the process of trying to use social media to make it happen. We’ve done a few things for it. It’s been a project that has been a lot of fun, and it’s sort of reunited me and Majandra, and we’ve had a great time doing it. It’s been a great working relationship. It’s something I’m excited about.

Majandra on Raising Her Children in a Gender-Neutral Environment: We Want Them to ‘Be Well-Rounded’

If there’s one thing Majandra Delfino is nailing as a mom, it’s setting her kids up to grow into who they are without limiting them to gender-traditional ideals.

“We didn’t really allow a lot of princess-y stuff into the house. Not a lot of pink and all that,” the Roswell alum, who is mom to 4-year-old daughter Cecilia Delphine with husband David Walton, shared with PEOPLE Thursday at 4Moms’ Los Angeles launch of their world’s first self-installing car seat.

“I felt like the world was going to do that so much to her [anyway, so] I was like, ‘Let’s try to save this house from too much of it, ’cause she will find it herself,’ ” Delfino, 35 — who also shares 2½-year-old son Louis Augustus with the About a Boy star, 37 — adds of their daughter.

“I’m realizing that she knows what that is because she legit wants to dress like a boy,” Delfino says. “I always try to buy her clothes that I could give to her brother after, so it’s always gender neutral, and she is offended when I give her a skirt now. I thought that was interesting.”

The hilarious mom of two shares that even though Cecilia has migrated toward tomboyish clothing, she has lately been gravitating toward the more traditionally feminine on her own.

“The milestone that she is hitting that is very on-the-nose girl is that she will see something pink or purple and be like, ‘Yes.’ And you’re like, ‘Whoa,’ ” the actress says. “We’ve done nothing to condition it, and it’s just there. The world did it.”

As it turns out, Delfino is seeing the same trend with Louis.

“He’s all about destruction and trucks, and it’s like, ‘What?’ ” she says, explaining, “We tried to do the opposite — we put him in ballet right away. We wanted them to be well rounded.”

Giving an example of just how well-rounded her son already is at such a young age, Delfino adds, “He’s like, ‘Aaaahhh!’ — starts to break things, then he all of a sudden stops and starts [pirouetting].”

Are more children in the future for the Friends with Better Lives actress and fellow actor Walton?

“I don’t know. We had our two children so back to back that there is definitely a part of me that is like, ‘Let’s have two more,’ ” Delfino replies. “And then of course my husband is one of seven children, so he is like, ‘Let’s have eight!’

“And I’m like, ‘With me?’ ” she jokes. ” “Cause I don’t know, we might have to bring in a ringer.’ ”

Interview with The Huffington Post

Check out this amazing interview by Andrew Cristi with Majandra and Brendan about Baron+Toluca. I’m very excited to see this show come to life. WE can do it.

Let’s first talk about what inspired you two to join forces again and how Baron And Toluca came about? Although this is a major reunion for the two of you and does bring back several of the Roswell elements that people enjoyed, it’s not a reboot or a sequel. What is the plot, and what can fans expect?

MAJANDRA DELFINO: Basically, what happened was that I had this idea that I could not shake, and it essentially involved a very meta-take on the lives of people that had been in Michael and Maria’s situation. I had written a pilot and I just couldn’t shake the thing. I had an option deal elsewhere, but I had this thing that just loomed and I couldn’t really ignore it. So, I finally approached this very huge player in the Roswell family- who will remain nameless for now- and I asked him to read it and tell me whether or not I was crazy, or if I had something substantial. And he read it and loved it and said that this is really cool, and really special and could capture what people liked so much- while still really being something completely different on its own. And he also said that the TV landscape needs something like this because there is nothing out there specifically representing science fiction as it was in the 90’s- now it has become this whole other thing of superheroes, etc. And there is something really nice about going back to what it was that Roswell represented for people. So, I worked on it with this man and sharpened it up to have it be ready and worthy, not just for the fans, but for Brendan- and just as I was getting close to putting the cherry on top and finishing, low and behold I get a call from Brendan and… [looks to Brendan to take the story] Brendan, this is where you take over the story.

Majandra starring in Zoe Lister-Jones Indie Comedy ‘Band Aid’

The movie is a passion project for Lister-Jones, who on top of directing also wrote the script, produced and starred in it. But wait there’s more: She also wrote the original songs.
Life in Pieces star Zoe Lister-Jones, Adam Pally and Fred Armisen are starring in Band Aid, a relationship comedy that Lister-Jones just wrapped directing.

The movie is a passion project for Lister-Jones, who on top of helming also wrote the script, produced and starred in it.

Pally and Armisen star alongside Lister-Jones in the story of a couple who, in the wake of a miscarriage, can’t stop fighting, so decide to turn all their fights into songs and form a rock band to save their marriage.

The cast also includes Hannah Simone (New Girl), Colin Hanks (Fargo), Brooklyn Decker (Grace and Frankie), Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), Susie Essman (Broad City), Ravi Patel (Meet the Patels), Jamie Chung (Big Hero 6), Chris D’Elia (Undateable), Erinn Hayes (Childrens Hospital), Majandra Delfino (Friends With Better Lives), Jerry O’Connell (Billions), Angelique Cabral (Life in Pieces) and Retta (Parks and Recreation).

Lister-Jones made it a point to have major departments be run by women. Joining her and producer Natalia Anderson were cinematographer Hillary Spera (Blue Angel), production designer Hillary Gurtler (Not Cool), editor Libby Cuenin (Togetherness) and line producer Kristen Murtha (The Great Silence).

Lister-Jones also spearheaded the movie’s music. She wrote the original songs, which were composed by Kyle Forester. She, Pally, and Armisen recorded the music live during production, with Pally on guitar and Armisen on drums.

Band Aid is financed by QC Entertainment with the company’s principals Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, Edward H. Hamm Jr. and Shaun Redick serving as executive producers.

Daryl Wein, Lister-Jones’ husband and partner at their production company Mister Lister Films, also is an exec producer.

Worldwide sales are being co-repped by WME and QC.

Lister-Jones most recently starred in HBO’s Confirmation and is repped by WME, Mosaic and Jackoway Tyerman.

Pally, who co-stars on The Mindy Project, is repped by UTA, 3 Arts and attorney Jon Moonves.
