Erin in 2005 Belly Burning Advert


Lori has been doing some Erin research lately and she came across an advert from a few years ago for The Belly Burner. Erin is featured in the advert!

Can I just say AUSXIP is NOT promoting this product. It's just showcasing Erin.

Erin wrote the following in response to the find:

"hahahaha!!! I did that about 5 years ago as a favor for my friend and then-trainer Bobby. He was just starting the company and needed a model who had an "all-American" look so I agreed to do it. I think it's funny. And the Belly Burner actually does work!"

2010 AUSXIP Charity Auction Update

Hi folks,

Well the auction has ended and I want to thank everyone, to those who bid and who won, for their support of this auction. It wouldn't be possible to achieve what we have achieved without your support.

I'll have some figures for you as to how much we have raised for Starship, ROC Outreach Fund and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Crystal Chappell) over the coming days.

Since the auction software is somewhat new(ish), there were some glitches. Nothing major but some glitches. Thank you all for your patience in regards to this; it did make for an interesting end to the auction.

For those that have won, you would have received an email to let you know how to pay for your item. For those who won items in the ROC OutReach Fund and Crystal Chappell items, you will be getting an invoice from our paypal account in the coming day/s. For those who won Starship items, please follow the directions in the FAQ on how to convert the US$ amount to NZ$ and proceed to payment on the Official Starship site.

Starship will be letting me know towards the end of the week or early next week (as it's Good Friday this coming Friday and it's a public holiday in New Zealand) including Monday, as to payments received. Once I've received their list and matched it with ours, we will begin to mail out the items won.

Payments for the ROC OutReach Fund and Crystal's items will be through paypal. Once payment has been received, the items will be shipped immediately.

Once again it's been an exhilarating, rewarding experience to be a part of this auction and knowing it will make a difference.

Oh behalf of myself and my hard working team (Christa and Roger), thank you for participating in this auction!

Spartacus E11 Old Wounds Promo Video - SPOILERS


Spartacus S1 E11 Old Wounds

Spartacus struggles with a fellow gladiator’s death. The Magistrate is declared missing as Batiatus and Numerius begin the search for him.

Watch Video

Some thoughts on the video - SPOILERS

- How incredibly difficult would it be for Sparty to take Varro's body back to his wife? Wow.

- Looks like Spartacus is having Sura flashbacks again

- The magistrate is going to feel the weight of Batiatus' boot...who is back to being ruthless and not idiotic like the previous episode.

- Looks like the guy that is on the other end of Sparty's rage is Ashur (from slowing down the video and watching frame by frame) and Ashur is also going to cop it from Batiatus. I could be wrong and it could be wishful thinking. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Looks like another fantastic episode!

Interview with Erin and Steven From Comic Con

The following interview is from (don't you just love that name? I think it's hysterical. Cute). Christopher Stipp interviewed Erin and Steven during 2009 Comic Con.

Erin Cummings and Steven DeKnight - INTERVIEW

So, when you go to Comic-Con, as you’re there trying to score interviews, you sometimes have to sit on things.

Last year I did a rather lengthy interview with Zachary Levi of Chuck that I had to sit on for months because we didn’t know when the show was coming back on the air. When I talked to Michael Jai White and Scott Sanders of Black Dynamite, I had to wait for that one to catch a little fire before releasing that one as well. So, when I was literally pulled into a hallway to be shown the trailer for Spartacus: Blood and Sand, now playing on the Starz channel, and had a chance to talk to the always affable actress Erin Cummings who I talked to exactly 12 months before that for her film Bitch Slap and showrunner/writer/director/producer/ender of anyone not in awe of his body art Steven DeKnight I was game to get an interview that would sleep away for months while the show generated some steam.

Cribbing a little bit from 300’s style but being wholly original in crafting a series that is not your usual sword and sandals production Spartacus separates itself from other shows in that you get blood but you also get a little drama, some heartfelt emotion. The series is just past the half-way point for the first season but it was a pleasure to talk to someone like Steven, a man who has had his fingers in Angel, Dollhouse, Smallville, ahem Viva Laughlin, ahem, and even has written some episodes for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The man is impressive simply by the successes he’s had on the production and written side of the business while Erin Cummings, who played a tempestuous little tart in Bitch Slap, simply exudes the kind of intelligence, thoughtfulness, and sense of humor you wish more starlets would possess.

Spartacus Screencaptures No More

Hi folks,

Many years ago the Xenaverse was blessed with Rob Tapert and USA Studio who allowed us to play without hindrance. They allowed screencaptures and artwork, fanfic to flourish. The internet was in it's infancy in regards to fandom. The Xenaverse grew. USA did have some restrictions like selling images etc which was fair and they came down on a few people but left us all to our copyright infringing happiness because we behaved.

We are not in Kansas anymore kiddies.

Due to the idiocy of some people in posting episodes that haven't been aired, creating artwork from these unaired episodes, etc and giving Starz a jolly good reason to stomp down (as is their right to do so) ALL the fans are now subject to a new ruling that no screencaptures are to be allowed. Now how do you enforce this ruling is beyond me BUT being that Starz has been very kind to AUSXIP and has given me clearance to post episode stills and other media, I have complied with this request. I do not know how Starz will enforce this on the net. IMO it's impossible but that's their decision.

So no more screencaptures for any Spartacus episodes. The official episode stills I have been posting will still be available as AUSXIP has been given that clearance.

Thanks for your time.

Erin Interview with Icon vs Icon 16 March 2010

ImageErin Cummings may not yet be a household name, but with her unbelievable range and dedication to her craft, she is poised to become one of Hollwood’s brightest stars. She made a huge splash in 2009, when a new cult classic film by the name of “Bitch Slap” erupted onto the silver screen.

As one of the film’s leading ladies, starring alongside Julia Voth and America Olivo, Cummings provided creative depth to the epic cat-fighting, hair-pulling, go-go dancing, pile-driving, thrill-a-minute fury that allowed the film to kick ass and take names with fans worldwide.

Now in 2010, Cummings continues to wield her acting might opposite of actor Andy Whitfield in the critically acclaimed series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, where she plays the pivotal role of Sura, a Thracian princess and wife of Spartacus. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with this woman on the move, to discuss her journey in the entertainment industry, breakthrough performances in ‘Bitch Slap’ and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, as well as her upcoming pilot for ABC’s ‘187 Detroit’. Read on to find out what makes her tick and what the future holds for this multi-faceted artist!

Erin Interview - Disc Disk

ImageInterview: Erin Cummings of Bitch Slap

The nicest Hollywood story we've heard all week can be found in the supplemental section of Fox's just-release Bitch Slap. The Russ Meyer-esque bad-ass babes flick is outfitted with a feature-length making-of documentary, Building a Better B-Movie, that contains a slew of interview with the cast and crew of the film, amongst them co-star Erin Cummings.

Currently a co-star on the steamy new Encore cable series Spartacus: Blood and Sand (where's she's pretty damned sexy!), starlet Cummings relates the story of how she was cast in Bitch Slap--and it's happily not the sleazy casting couch tale we were expecting, particularly given the sexiness and attitude of the movie in question.

Erin Interview Knoxville Man 05 March 2010

Watch out. You Might Get Bitch Slapped.

Assume the position, and get ready for cleavage, lots of cleavage. The new movie Bitch Slap is out and ready to be bought. Don't worry it is not your usual "B" movie. It's filled with guns, explosives, fight scenes, and as I said before cleavage. Oh, I can't forget the make-out scene. Watch the movie and you'll understand. I'm the lucky one who gets to sit down with actress Erin Cummings. Be jealous.

Knoxville Man: Hey Erin, how are you doing?

Erin: I'm fantastic! How are you doing?

Knoxville Man: You have an incredibly sexy voice.

Erin: You know it's my Bea Arthur voice.

Knoxville Man: Hell yeah. You should keep it going.

Erin: Well atleast I know I might have a possible side-career if this acting thing doesn't work.

Erin and Julia Interview on Fearnet - Bitch Slap


Exclusive: We Get 'Bitch Slapped' by Julia Voth and Erin Cummings - 5 March 2010

Last weekend, I hit the DVD launch party at Sushi Dan on Sunset for Bitch Slap, Spartacus: Blood and Sand director Rick Jacobson's homage to the exploitation films of the '60s and '70s (which hit DVD this Tuesday, March 2). The film features a trio of beautiful women -- pictured above (from left to right) they are: Hel (played by Erin Cummings), Trixie (played by Julia Voth), and Camero (played by America Olivo).

Together, they plot to steal 200 million in diamonds from an underworld kingpin. In real life, any one of the film's stars is hot enough to make a grown man willingly fork over 200 mil and then melt like a Fudgsicle in July. And yours truly had to interview two of these ladies - Voth and Cummings - at one time. How did I do it? By drinking my weight in Asahi beer beforehand. (Wonderful stuff that Asahi!) Hit the jump for our full-length, semi-inebriated conversation.

IESB Exclusive Interivew - Erin Cummings

ImageOn the Starz original action-adventure drama series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Erin Cummings plays Sura, a Thracian princess and the wife of the title character.

When Sura is captured, taken from Spartacus (Andy Whitfield) and sold into slavery, his sole focus in life becomes doing whatever it takes to get her back. Even though his rebellious tendencies initially get him into trouble, he is tamed by the promise of one day being reunited with his wife.

In this exclusive interview with IESB, Erin Cummings talks about playing such a strong woman, how much she enjoys working with her co-star Andy Whitfield, filming in New Zealand and her feelings about the critics of the show's graphic violence, sex and nudity.

Spartacus Ep 7 Great and Unfortunate Things Review

WARNING: Contains spoilers for Episode have been warned! Here is a mini review of Episode 7...

ImageImageI sit here and wonder how this show does it. How in 6 episodes one can be so emotionally invested in the characters to care when one of them or two of them (in the case of Sura and Barca in Episode 6) dies. I found myself mourning their passing (more Sura than Barca).

For Sura fans can I just say (without giving too much away) that Spartacus has not forgotten her. I doubt he ever will. Sura is a part of him which is both beautiful and frightening at the same time.

This episode also gives you a closer look at Naevia (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and her love for Crixus. Beautiful scenes. Varro has troubles of his own and Pietros misses Barca, Lucretia has some girl talk with Ilythia and Batiatus continues his nasty ways and there is a battle or two along the way.

This is quite an emotional episode.

The end will leave you gobsmacked. Utterly gobsmacked. Took me totally by surprise.

Here's some info from Spoiler TV about Erin's new role on 187 Detroit

A documentary filmmaking crew follows the Detroit Police Department's Homicide Squad during a (cough) "typical" day in the field, only to have the day turn out to be brutally atypical -- as usual...

DR. SHELBY CORK] 35 years old but looking 25, Dr. Cork is a pretty and eccentric woman, wearing cat glasses, with a hipster vibe. A Medical Examiner for the City of Detroit, who plays roller derby in her spare time (and has the shiner to prove it). This is not the Medical Examiner you expect to see...SERIES REGULAR 10/13
