|The sexy stars of poker movie ACES have launched a new blog and a premiere podcast episode to share their experiences shooting the film in Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro. |
The cast of the movie, presented by online casino Aces.com, will be in Las Vegas for the Championship weekend of the WSOP, July 27 – 30 and will publish their blog and podcast from The Strip.
The blog – Three Girls, One Summer, No Limit – is at acesmovie.blogspot.com where there is a link to the movie trailer video and to the girls’ podcast. The free podcast is also available at iTunes.
So far in their blog, ACES stars Lacey Toups, Christina Morris and Sheena Chou have written about learning to play Texas Hold’em for their roles, and how much they enjoyed shooting the final beach scene.
Their first podcast is an interview with Sheena where she talks about searching the back woods villages of Brazil with director Daniel Zirilli looking for a poker game, and about learning to play poker as a pre-schooler from her elderly Chinese great-uncle.
“We had a lot of fun shooting ACES in Vegas. I can’t wait to go back,” said Christina Morris, whose ACES character acts as the seductive decoy that distracts high rollers while her team cheats them out of their money.
Sheena Chou said, “We’re going to be hosting the Wednesday Night Free Roll Tournaments at Aces.com, I doubt I’ll win but that's OK. The prize each week is a trip to our DVD Release Party in LA and I already have my invitation to that anyway!'
This Wednesday night (11:00 pm EDT), Lacey Toups hosts the Free Roll at Aces.com where another winner will win a trip to the DVD Release Party. Director Daniel Zirilli will host the online poker tournament the following week and it will be Sheena’s turn the week after. Christina will host the online tournament August 2.
