I'm terribly sorry for not updating in quite awhile!! Here's the latest on Ed:
A snapshot of Ed in this week's People magazine, running down a New York street for the film 15 Minutes. Some fantastic shots of Ed on the set of 15 minutes on Dark Horizons (follow this link: Report #2: "I work in the Times Square Theatre district and our building has been caught in the middle of the new DeNiro and Edward Burns flick "15 minutes". As we speak, they're planning to blow an abandoned building (across the street from us) on 8th avenue sky high. I was told by an on-set P.A. that they're going to blow it up at midnight. Also, they were filming a scene which involved a dozen naval officers, they were shooting in front of a large electronics store here in Manhattan"
"So I'm in New York on Sunday the 25th with a group of foreign exchange students, and as we're taking them to see the Statue of Liberty, we're on the ferry heading to the island when we hear gunshots. The entire crowd of people turn around and see cops running everywhere. We're scared out of our minds, but then we realize: they're filming a movie. Now, this is at the US Navy Memorial that is next to the Ellis Island Ferry station, with the big huge blocks with Navy stuff engraved on it. All I can see is that there are cops (I think they rented real cops because later I saw them getting into cop cars; or they rented cop cars) and after the gunshots they run a lot. They did this three times over. There was also a big NY Police boat docked next to them. After we came back, they were still filming scenes there. I asked a Ferry worker what movie it was (I figured he'd been standing there all day, so he'd know) and he said it was "15 Minutes" with Robert DeNiro. I asked excitedly if DeNiro was there. He said (maybe a little spoiler) that "No, he's already dead.""

I don't know if any of you caught the Rosie O'Donnell show today but Ed's girlfriend was on: Heather Graham! Rosie basically started the conversation by showing a picture of Heather standing with someone Rosie didn't recognize-Heather told her it was Ed, in sunglasses and a leather jacket. Rosie was shocked and went on to say how much she loved Ed etc...Heather talked about Ed filming his new movie, "15 Minutes" and she also revealed a scene where his arm is lit on fire!

Due to negative response from some people about this site, I neglected updating it and burrowed into little hole in cyberspace oblivion. A letter from someone changed that and now that I've checked the hits on this page, I'm very pleasantly surprised! Now I'm going to try to make this page into one of the best on the Internet. So basically here's all the news I've forgotten to update (some of it comes from Shanda, thank you :-):

The Unofficial Ed Burns page is now online. I am a big fan of Ed, basically because he can do it all-write, direct, and act. And he can do it well. Take a while to check out the other sections of the site, and have fun.
