Nana told fans at Denver’s Starfest this past weekend that she has a small role in the Friday the 13th remake, as Jason’s mom. She also revealed a spoiler about her character. Check it out under the cut.
We have learned thathas been cast and has already shot her scenes for a film that will be very timely when it is released in 2008. She plays the quirky wife of a Democratic presidential candidate in “Swing Vote,” produced by Kevin Costner. Dennis Hopper is her insecure husband, while Kelsey Grammer (“ “) plays the smug incumbent Republican.
The story fictionalizes the dead-heat presidential election of 2000, but instead of Florida, the deciding electoral vote comes down to New Mexico, and one county in particular, and in a fluke of circumstances, one vote by one particular citizen. And naturally, the two candidates and their campaign organizations swoop down on the small rural town to sway that vote. Costner plays the apathetic trailer-park single dad who faces the pressure of having to single-handedly decide the fate of the free world.
Most of the film was shot on location in New Mexico, which is quite convenient to Visitor because she is living there while shooting Wildfire, an ABC Family show going into its fourth season. Her role in “Swing Vote” is small, but significant.
Visitor also recently shot an episode of Battlestar Galactica with another presidential connection. She told fans in Las Vegas that all her scenes were performed with Mary McDonnell, who plays President Laura Roslin. Visitor’s character is named “Emily Kowlski,” according to IMDB.com, and she will appear in the eighth episode of Season Four in early 2008. No word yet if her character will recur later in this final season of theseries.
