FOX 2's Roop Raj does some acting for 'Golden Shoes'

MILFORD, Mich. -- A new film called "Golden Shoes" is being shot here in Michigan.  It stars Vivica Fox and Dave Deluise.  For the most part, there is an all local crew with some people who have flown in from Los Angeles.

Producer Norman Koza clued me in on some of the storyline.

"It's about... a little boy whose father is in the military, goes MIA.  The mom hears the news that her husband's MIA, presumed dead.  She gets in a car wreck.  We don't want to give away the whole story, but now this little boy's got to go live with his neighbor, so that's where a big part of the bullying comes in," said Koza.  "The movie's very inspiring, and it's going to be a great story.  We've got a huge cast."

"The story covers all the current events that (are) going on in our country, politics, the war, economy, and also about a kid who finds a way to inspire not only his team and his city, but an entire nation.  It was written because of this story that was given to me by Norman Koza.  I fell in love with the idea of it.  It took me a year and a half to finish the screenplay, and here we are," director Lance Kawas said.

Now I've had the chance to act in this movie myself, but it wasn't much of a stretch.  They wanted me to be a reporter, so I played myself following the war and then this young soccer player.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open. Nowadays, there seems to be a growing sense — or hope, maybe — among the best of the rest on the men's tennis tour that the quartet might be more vulnerable than ever.

    John Lennon's killer was denied release from prison in his eighth appearance before a parole board, New York corrections officials said Friday. The decision on Mark David Chapman by a three-member board came after a hearing Wednesday, the state Department of Corrections said. Chapman fired five shots on Dec. 8, 1980, outside the Dakota apartment house where Lennon lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side, hitting the ex-Beatle four times.
