For the last six months, Jack Noseworthy has been seen as the consummate good guy--his MTV series "Dead at 21" was in its third round of repeats before it was finally pulled a few weeks ago. But with the release of his two latest films, Noseworthy won't have to worry about being typecast as a nice guy. The first film, "S.F.W."--a kind of Generation X-meets-"Natural Born Killers" ("S.F.W."

Jack Noseworthy, wearing bulky black boots and a ripped green army jacket with sleeves hanging past his hands, storms after Lisa Dean Ryan inside the faded gold lobby of the Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. She looks like a waif, with her dark hair chopped short and her belly bare under the peace flower emblazoned on her cutoff T-shirt. The two actors are shooting the new half-hour TV series "Dead at 21," MTV's first foray into action-adventure that might best be described as grunge on the run. They are playing Ed and Maria, two tattered 20-year-olds who are framed for murder and must stay one step ahead of a mad-dog federal agent while searching desperately for the doctor who implanted a computer chip in Ed's skull when he was born as part of a 1970s government plot to create super-smart human beings.

After more than two years of development, Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures said Tuesday it will be ready to premiere a musical adaptation of Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles" at San Francisco's Curran Theatre in December, with a Broadway opening planned for next spring. Called "Lestat" and featuring a score by the famed pop writing team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, the production will star Hugh Panaro, who has appeared on Broadway in "Les Miserables," "Show Boat" and "The Phantom of the Opera."

Ready for another movie about how the media are wrecking our lives? "S.F.W.," which was originally scheduled for release last year, is a low-grade, grunge companion piece to "Natural Born Killers." Based on the novel by Andrew Wellman, and directed and co-written by Jefery Levy, it wallops the audience with mega-heavy-metal boom-boom theatrics. There hasn't been this much attitude in a movie since--well, since "Natural Born Killers."

A pediatric nurse becomes foster mother to an HIV-positive baby, only to have the birth mother claim her a year later in "A Place for Annie," a well-acted "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation airing Sunday. A tear-jerker? Absolutely. But not a manipulative wallow, thanks to superb performances by Oscar-winning Sissy Spacek, in her first network movie in nearly two decades, and Mary-Louise Parker ("Naked in New York").

"S.F.W." is getting a bad rap. A&M Films' social satire of teenagers held hostage in a convenience store has become a prisoner of its own title and content when it comes to product placement. The film, set for a late summer '94 release through Gramercy Pictures, has been rebuffed by such major advertisers as Budweiser, Johnny Walker bourbon, Lucky Strike cigarettes, Campbell's soup, People and Mirabella magazines, Circle K and Southland Corp.'s 7-Eleven stores, to name a few.

It's too bad that in "Poster Boy" clarity is not equal to force, because it has so much going for it. It's topical, impassioned and dynamic, boasting crisp performances and smart dialogue. Its convoluted flashback structure and elliptical style make it at times needlessly confusing to the point of distraction, which likely will limit its appeal to gay audiences in a forgiving mood.

Try to forget the movie. Few films have hobbled a play like the clinical adaptation of Peter Shaffer's "Equus." Although that screen version starred Richard Burton, it never reproduced the play's mythic poetry. No camera possibly could. Don't forget this is theater . The West Coast Ensemble's transcendent revival unleashes pure theatricality.
