Out in Film: Perry Moore

Idol worship: Perry Moore, director/writer/producer.

- He started his show biz career on the original production team of The Rosie O'Donnell Show.

- As part of Walden Media, he brought C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series to Disney. The first film, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, was a huge hit; its sequel, Prince Caspian, opens next week.

- His first film as a writer/director (with his partner Hunter Hill), Lake City (a family drama starring Sissy Spacek, Troy Garity, Rebecca Romijn and Keith Carradine), is due later this year.

- Also in the works is a documentary about famed children's book author Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) with director Spike Jonze.

- In addition to his work in film, he is also a best-selling author; his first novel, Hero(about a gay superhero) is currently in development for the silver screen.
