Don’t forget that Rose will introduce the world premiere of Night of the Living Dead in 3D tonight at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The event is open to the public for a $10 per person minimum donation, with proceeds benefiting the Johnny Ramone research fund at USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center.
Actress Rose McGowan, a close friend of Johnny and Linda’s, who will be on hand to introduce Night of The Living Dead 3-D, concurs on the young people. “I love seeing three-year-old kids with their Ramones t-shirts on,” she tells Spinner. “My four-year-old nephew bops all around to it.”
McGowan, despite having starred in Grindhouse, says she is not a horror film fan “at all.” In fact, when she and Johnny, a big horror buff, would meet up to watch movies she would squash any notions of horror flicks. And yet, here she is, set to introduce a zombie film in a cemetery. “I will be shutting my eyes a lot Saturday. That would fit Johnny’s sense of humor perfectly. He was an imp, a bit of a troublemaker,” she says. “And the fact I have to introduce it, he’d be laughing his head off. ‘Ha, ha, Rose, I got you.'”

Jack in Las Vegas: I just heard that Katee Sackhoff won’t be back on Nip/Tuck. What’s the deal?
Fret not, tuber, she’ll be gracing your screen in 24 this season. “Rose McGowan replaced me [on Nip/Tuck]. I’d only signed on for four episodes, and then I got a pilot, so I couldn’t do anymore episodes,” Katee explained to us at the Madison and Mulholland Charitable Giving Emmy suite (right after she generously donated two Harley Davidson jackets and an awesome Battlestar Galactica helmet to her charity of choice). No hard feelings from the BSG alum, though: “I’m sure she’ll do a great job.”
Check out a most excellent new interview with Rose in our library, courtesy of MetroMix Des Moines. We learn about Rose’s Dylan’s Wake character Charlie and it sounds like a very challenging and great role for our girl.
Actually, I’m basically completely disgusting in this. She is a semi-homeless crackhead who I think is half cracked and half schizophrenic. She somehow latches onto Nick Stahl’s character, and he feels sorry for her and tries to help her, but she’s a tough one to help. It’s funny, though, people want to come to the set and meet me and unfortunately I’m covered in dirty clothes and disgustingly dirty shoes and they put all this oil in my hair to make it look like it hasn’t been washed in a very long time, not to mention makeup obviously doesn’t enhance anything, more like dehances. They also put some brown stuff on my teeth, so these poor people come to set and they want to meet me and it’s a little frightening for them. I know I’m not what they were expecting.
People always say I’m not the girl next door. To which I always reply that I have always lived next door to someone my whole life. I don’t understand that.
I really wish that I could relearn Italian and move back to Italy and do some crazy Italian films. That’s honestly what I wish for more than anything.
Zombies, blood and brains will be on display in glorious 3D as the 5th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute holds the world premiere screening of George Romero’s classic horror film, Night of the Living Dead, in 3D on Oct. 3 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, Calif.
To heighten the festivities, NVIDIA® will showcase its award-winning 3D Vision(TM) stereoscopic 3D technology and give attendees a chance to play this year’s hottest horror game, Resident Evil 5, to experience what it’s like to have crazed zombies pop out of the computer screen.
The event will kick off at dusk with a showing of the full-length, 1977 Ramones concert, It’s Alive, screened outdoors against a 24-foot mausoleum wall. Actress Rose McGowan (Grindhouse) will then introduce the world premiere of Night of the Living Dead in 3D. The event is open to the public for a $10 per person minimum donation, with proceeds benefiting the Johnny Ramone research fund at USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center. Gates open at 5:30 pm. Picnic dinners, drinks (including alcoholic ones), pillows, blankets and small chairs are permitted. Attendees will receive free commemorative 3D glasses upon entering.
