ARROW IN THE HEAD
The lovely Brande Roderick has had a multi faceted career thus far. From acting on TV shows (Baywatch, Beverly Hills 90210), to posing for PlayBoy pictorials, to appearing in mainstream films (Starchy and Hutch) and finally to kicking it within the horror genre (Dracula 2: Ascension and the more recent Hood of Horror). I had the opportunity to mud wrestle with the smart and gorgeous gal, and here's who came up on top.
Would you say that you enjoy horror films? If so what are some of your
Absolutely, my very first one was Exorcist at 6 years old I watched it with my mom. But the scariest one for me would have to be Nightmare On Elm St. At the time I was 14 years old and my girlfriend and I watched and got so scared we slept on my parent's bedroom floor.
You play trashy Tiffany in the upcoming “Hood of Horror”; what was it about the role that appealed to you?
The comedy aspect, she was so outrageously over the top, and any time I can do a southern accent is great!

The part required you to be involved with ample fake blood and guts; how did you find the prosthetics experience?
A little invasive. I had to lay on my back with my legs spread apart while men rubbed my body with the goo. Meanwhile, my boyfriend is sitting there watching them do it. Not the most comfortable situation for anyone. Those poor guys were probably petrified that they were either going to get beat up.
There was a lot of humor within the role (and the film), is comedy something that comes easy for you or do you have to work at it?
Comedy is very easy for me; it’s my favorite thing to do. And I’m very blessed that it is easy for me, because for most it’s not.
If it would be up to you, what kind of role in what type of film would you love to tackle?
I'd like to do a nerd to beauty romantic type comedy. Where I get to be underdone then go through a transformation into a butterfly. Because I feel I could relate to that. And I love romantic comedy’s
You were Ranked #96 in FHM's 2005 "100 Sexiest Women in the World” list. How much of a shot to the ego was that?
That was very exciting for me; however it was quite disappointing this year because I wasn’t picked at all. Hint hint, in case anyone wants to vote for me this year.
That's why she was voted one of the "100 Sexiest Women in the World”!
What does Brande Roderick do to relax when she’s not working?
I watch "Oprah" and "Rockstar Supernova." I also like to read and go hiking. And lastly I like to do Jell-O wrestling with my friends, J/K.
You’ve appeared in Playboy twice thus far, would you say it helped your career, was detrimental or it didn’t make a difference?
I feel it definitely helped my career, I feel every job is a platform for the next. It gave me the confidence and opportunity for many things.
Any desire to do Playboy again or are you done with it?
I never say never, I’m not ruling it out.
What’s next for you as an actress? In what will we see you next?
Nanny Diaries opposite Scarlet Johansson. The film is being produced by the Weinstein Company and will be out in 2007. Love, Fear and Rabbits opposite Joey Lauren Adams. Toxic opposite Tom Seizmore. "Celebrity Fear Factor" that airs August 29, 2006 and my recurring role on "The Game," a new series for The CW where I play a football players wife. The show is a spin-off form the very successful Girlfriend series, which is produced by Kelsey Grammer, who also produces this show, which is a ½ comedy about NFL football players and the women in their lives. The show will air Sunday nights at 8:30 to premiere October 1st.
What was the first drink that you consumed at the Hood of Horror wrap party?
I didn’t get to go because I was out of town working on nanny diaries. But we are going to have a huge party after our screening at the Chinese theatre on Friday the 13th of October at Hollywood and highlands nightclub. Maybe I’ll have a Bloody Mary!

I'd like to thank Brande for dropping by and embellishing the site and wish her the best in all of her aspirations.
