Kristen Bell is one of the Heroes

Posted Aug 20th 2007 12:19AM by Varun Lella

It's casting drama times two! Heroes casting news is the Paris Hilton of TV news, you just can't go three days without hearing about it. If you haven't heard about it, you must not come to this website often.

Just last week, we heard that our favorite superpower drama was adding a little old school flair with some new school brattitude. Forgive me for saying brattitude.

It seems that Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars fame, who stirred up her own drama when rumors said she was going to join Lost and again when she decided against it, will be the newest edition to the Heroes cast -- which has now been recognized as its own country.


[Hmmm...edition? Addition, edition...close, but no cigar.]

Stargate SG-1 - Chris Judge's New Project: Rage of Angels

From MultiChannel News TV Crush's blog:

Stargate's Chris Judge, 24's Brad Turner Partner for Rage of Angels

Posted by Mary McNamara on August 18, 2007

Stargate SG-1 co-star Christopher Judge has teamed up with the Emmy-winning producer/director of "24," Brad Turner, to develop Rage of Angels, a drama that tracks the earthly adventures of the angel Gabriel and his nemesis Lucifer. MGM, the studio that wholly owns the Stargate franchise, is behind the two-hour, back door pilot

Stateside, Judge enjoys a cult following after ten seasons on SG-1 as Teal'c, the alien warrior and leader of his people, the Jaffa. But overseas, it’s a different story altogether. Chatting at a table adjacent to the roof top pool of Hotel Solamar in San Diego, Judge circled gingerly around the subject of his worldwide popularity.

"The fans are quite zealous about their support of Stargate," he said, "you just don't realize. Vancouver is removed from the scene. People there are so respectful of space and privacy...." Then he clarified diplomatically, "I think it's great that people are enamored of the show."
