'Medium' Family Affair: David To Direct Big Sis Patricia

LOS ANGELES (February 12, 2007) — Patricia Arquette will soon be taking orders from her little brother.

David Arquette, who’s married to “Dirt” actress Courteney Cox, will direct an episode of NBC’s drama “Medium.”

“I was always a bossy little girl and being David’s older sister I’ve bossed him around quite a bit. Now that he’ll be directing me it will be payback time,” Patricia Arquette, 38, said Monday. “I think it will be really interesting being directed by David because he knows me so well and I feel so safe with him. I think I’ll be able to go to some of my darkest places.”

The 35-year-old David Arquette, who stars in ABC’s “In Case of Emergency” and recently directed his first feature film (”The Tripper” being released in April), said he was “really excited to be able to work with my sister Patricia.”

Miguel Sandoval, who plays District Attorney Manuel Devalos in “Medium,” also will direct an episode of the show.

“Miguel expressed an interest in stepping behind the camera early in the first season, and ever since he brought it up, I have sensed that this ‘new role’ might be a great fit for him,” show creator Glenn Gordon Caron said.
