Erin Interview: Huntsville Native Pursuing Dreams

By Matthew Jackson
Staff Reporter
One of Huntsville's own has stepped into the shoes of a gladiator.

Erin Cummings, a graduate of Huntsville High School and the University of North Texas, is now one of the stars of the new premium cable series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," which premiered on the Starz network Jan. 22.

After spending her childhood in various Huntsville drama productions, and her college years working with various acting troupes and community theaters in the Dallas area, Cummings set out for Hollywood nine years ago to pursue her acting dreams.

After nearly a decade of steady work as a television guest star and independent film actress, a chance to join the main cast of one of the most-hyped new shows of the year serves as a major breakthrough.

Cummings co-stars in the series, which re-tells the story of Spartacus and his slave rebellion against the Romans, as Sura, the wife of Spartacus (played by Andy Whitfield). She came to the role through a combination of industry connections and hard work.

Andy Whitfield Praises Erin In IESB Interview

Excerpt from iesb.net interview with Andy Whitfield.

Q: What has Erin Cummings been like to work with?

Andy: She's great. I think she actually got me the job. She came in to do a workshop with Steven DeKnight and the director, Rick Jacobson, in the audition process. I was doing these scenes, and there were some romantic scenes in the auditions. The casting director was there, but we couldn't really generate the chemistry. So, they brought in this girl and she was like a whirlwind. She was like, "Okay, everybody stop. You and I will just go in the corner and get to know each other." She was great. I was just like, "This is what Spartacus would feel like with that woman." She was just this whirlwind of energy.

Bitch Slap Showtimes For Denver

The Denver Film Society has posted the Bitch Slap showtimes for Friday and Saturday alongside a summary of the movie.


USA, 2009, 105 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Black Comedy, Buddy Picture, Crime, Epic, Martial Arts, Women's Issues
Language: English

Friday & Saturday, January 22 & 23 at 10pm

35mm presentation - Bitch Slap is a post-modern, thinking man's throwback to the B movie/exploitation films of the 1950s though 1970s, as well as a loving, sly parody of them. Inspired by the likes of Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Kung Fu Nun and the pantheon of Blacksploitation films, Bitch Slap mixes hot girls, fast cars, big guns, nasty tongues, outrageous action and jaw-dropping eye candy with a message: Don't be naughty! At its core, the action follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort massive booty from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed and other criminals arrive for the score. With "cult classic" written all over it, Bitch Slap is a cat-fighting, pile-driving, go-go dancing, bronco-busting, bumping & grinding, philosophy-touting, breast-augmenting, femme-tastic fight-fantasy of epic proportions!

Erin Cummings featured on Girl2Watch site

ering2.jpg

Erin stars in the highly anticipated and controversial film Bitch Slap. Why controversial? Maybe the LA Times said it best when they asked if Bitch Slap was empowerment of exploitation. She's also on TV as the wife of Spartacus in the new series of that name on Starz. From kicking ass in Bitch Slap to this wife of Spartacus, this beauty from Texas raised partially in Asia is going to redefine women on screen and give some new thinking on music, love, muscle cars and men.

The site provides various pages featuring Erin: Introducing Erin Cummings From Bitch Slap And Spartacus, you can also read fun facts about Erin, including her very first role and favorite vice.

Erin discusses her roles on Spartacus and Bitch Slap. Erin talks about things that matter to her on the Don't Mess With Me page.

BITCH SLAP Video On Demand Details

From the official Bitch Slap facebook.

Hey gang!

First off, thank you to everybody who's been able to attend theatrical screenings of the movie! For those of you trying to watch it on VOD, here is what we know:

Fox is handling the Video-On-Demand distribution, and we've just received word that Bitch Slap is now available via PlayStation 3 and Verizon FiOS at premium prices. After the next week or two, Bitch Slap will be widened to more services, including Time Warner Cable and Comcast, with a potentially lower price.

Eric and Rick would like to apologize to any folks who are waiting to see the film but have cable providers who do not yet have Bitch Slap; it's as frustrating for us as it is for you. But don't fret! Though we don't have a date for the availability expansion, we'll post it to the page as soon as we hear from Fox.

Thanks for your continued support and enthusiasm. We will be Slapping you all as soon as we can!

EXCL: Filmmakers and Stars Talk Bitch Slap!

With IM Global / Bombshell Pictures gleefully titillating feature Bitch Slap bowing today in limited theatrical release and to Video on Demand, this scribe sat down recently with the makers and stars of the film to discuss their 'guns, boobs and brawls' opus, and was thrilled to do so.

Why? In this writer's estimation, Bitch Slap has set the bar in that sub-genre of film, and now holds the heavyweight belt as the 'Quintessential Guy Flick.' This is fortuitous, not only for audiences with high expectations (the flick's trailer and teaser art has been burning up the Internet for months) but also for the filmmakers, whose goal was to create 'The Best Bitch Fight in Film History.' [...]

Read the article

Bitch Slap opens today for a limited theatrical run in Los Angeles at The Nuart (11272 Santa Monica Boulevard), in New York at The Quad (34 West 13th Street) and in San Francisco at The Lumiere (1572 California Street). Tickets are on sale for all locations through MovieTickets.com and for Los Angeles and San Francisco through LandmarkTheaters.com.

Is 'Bitch Slap' Empowerment or Exploitation?

ImageLos Angeles Times - 03 Jan 2010

Is 'Bitch Slap' Empowerment or Exploitation?

Exploi-powerment? Will it even matter during what director Rick Jacobson claims is 'the greatest chick fight in cinema history'?

Following the year-end onslaught of high-class commercial releases and ritzy awards-competitive films, it is easy to feel the need for something basic, less rigorous and more freewheeling -- a cinematic sorbet, as it were, a palate-cleanser along the lines of the retro-exploitation homage "Bitch Slap."

Directed by Rick Jacobson, who co-wrote the script with Eric Gruendemann (with both credited as producers), "Bitch Slap" opens Friday at the Nuart in Los Angeles as well as in New York City, San Francisco and on video-on-demand.

Three women (played by Erin Cummings, America Olivo and Julia Voth), each with a distinct personality and the wardrobe to match, find themselves in a remote desert hideaway with a male hostage who is to disclose the location of a cache of extremely valuable diamonds. As various intrigues and entanglements are revealed and a series of flashbacks unravel the convoluted back story that put them all there, the women fight one another and assorted arriving interlopers.
