April 30, 2008: Creepy and Cold

What happens in the fog tent stays in the fog tent. Until the episode airs of course at which point everyone finds out. But for now, let's just say there are creepy goings-on. The gang upstairs are loving the dailies and director Will Waring is very excited about all of the edited footage he's seen so far.


I'm hoping tomorrow is equally nice as we'll be doing some (Ext. Forest - Day) location shooting. This will be our first time away from our standing sets this season and I'm sure both the cast and crew are looking forward to getting away.

Some mailbag:

Kristen writes: "What's going on with "Hexed"? or is that mentioned in the above list?"

Answer: Hexed is still a possibility.


PG15 also writes: "I think you made a typo there, Joe. The mid-season 2-parter is episodes 10 and 11, not 9 and 10."

Answer: You're right.

PG15 also writes: "1. CSI Atlantis - is it written AND directed by Rob Cooper, like his other episodes? 2. "Carl's latest" - would that be "The Red Shirt Diaries"?"

Answers: 1. It will be. 2. Yep.


PattyO writes: "Why are some written [episodes] and/or directed by the same person, and others aren't?"

Answer: Brad, Paul, Alan, Carl, and I are not directors. Andy, Will, and Martin Wood are not writers. Only Martin Gero and Robert Cooper do both.

Iron Man - SciFi Weekly: Interviews with 'Iron Man' Cast

From the SciFi Channel's SciFi Weekly:

(Please follow the link for the complete interviews.)


April 30, 2008

Jon Favreau directs Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges and Terrence Howard to build a better Iron Man

By Ian Spelling

The summer moviegoing season will kick off officially on May 2 with director Jon Favreau's highly anticipated adaptation of Iron Man. And the excitement is understandable. Iron Man—which sees a playboy weapons maker emerge as the titular iron-clad superhero—is an all-star affair that casts Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man; Gwyneth Paltrow as his loyal assistant, Pepper Potts; Terrence Howard as his military contact, James "Rhodey" Rhodes; and Jeff Bridges as mentor-turned-sworn-enemy Obadiah Stane.

SCI FI Weekly recently ventured to New York City to catch up with Downey, Paltrow, Howard, Bridges and Favreau.

Q: Robert Downey, did you do this movie for your kids?

Downey: The funny thing is, when I was researching I asked for every single piece of information they had on Iron Man. They were like, "No, no. We'll send you over a package." I was like, "May I have every single piece you have on Iron Man?" So when the merchandise started coming out I said, "May I have every single thing that is part of the merchandising?" They said, "Robert, that would be like a truck." I was like, "May I have ..." And they said, "Oh, no problem." But anyway, there's all the cool stuff and the Nerf thing and the this and sippy cups and Slurpees and the whole deal, but there's this little book, which probably cost 5 cents to make. It's a little flipbook, and at the end of the flipbook it says, "Iron Man defeated the evil Obadiah Stane. He would never hurt anybody again." And I look on the front and it says "For ages 4+," you know? It's pretty wild and cool to think that I could be participating in this tradition of being kind of twice removed, but pretty directly involved in something that can affect that wide an audience.

Q: Gwyneth Paltrow, some people are surprised that you're in this movie ...

Paltrow: I don't know why people are so surprised.

Q: You don't generally make movies like this ...

Paltrow: Well, but I just hadn't. That doesn't mean I wouldn't. The reason I wanted to do it was because the group of people was so brilliant. It's like, how do you not do that movie? I hadn't worked in, really, since ... I was pregnant with [daughter] Apple when I did Proof, and that was a long time ago, and it came out a ways after we had shot it. So it seemed like I had worked sooner than I had. And in that time I did a few little things, but not a big part or anything. I kind of wanted to go back to work. I started to feel the thing of "I have something to say. I'm here because I have something to say and I have a way to say it." I thought if in about a year, when my son is a year [old], if there's something that seemed like it'd be fun and inspiring and not too demanding—because going back to work, I was very nervous about it—I'll do it. And then Jon called, and he explained what the movie was, what it was going to be kind of at face value, and what the sort of other metaphors in the movie were. He explained my character, and he was like, "She's going to be great. You're going to have fun. It's going to be good scenes." So I said, "OK, I'll do it." And I'm so happy that I said that, because I just had such a good time. Those guys are brilliant. I grew up always wanting to work with Robert, and Jeff Bridges is, like, The Big Lebowski. I mean, he's a god. He's an acting god.

Q: Terrence Howard, there's a great in-joke where you see an Iron Man suit and react to it. That's a teaser for a possible evolution into War Machine ...

Howard: Robin might get to ride in the Batmobile one day. No, I'm pretty sure we're gonna go there. The response to even that one little statement, the roar in the audience ... I didn't know that War Machine was so beloved or anticipated until sitting in an audience and hearing that.

Q: Jeff Bridges, in playing Stane, did you go by what was on paper or were you part of the improv process?

Bridges: This is interesting, "what's on the paper," because it was rarely on the paper. I always thought that these big multimillion-dollar movies, that the special effects are so expensive that they would want to have all the dialogue and be very prepared that way, so that everything [he snaps his fingers] would go quicker. But I found out that that's not the case with these movies. Often the dialogue is kind of left as a last-minute thing, you know? That was tough, because you base your character on what is said about you and what you say, and if that's not solid, then who are you, what are you? So I showed [my ideas] to Jon, so that we were all on the same page. Occasionally that would have to change as we started to discover each day who people were and that sort of thing. So often we would show up for work not knowing what we were going to say. We'd meet in Jon's trailer for a couple of hours and throw ideas around and improvise and put it on one of these little tape recorders. And that's what we said. Jon is to blame, I think, for the success of the movie. As far as I'm concerned, I think it came out wonderfully. I was concerned. It took me a while to kind of get with the program and not spend all that energy bitching about the way it was, because that's not how I like to work. But that's kind of the assignment often; you're dealt a hand of the different people you're working with, and everything is very different. They were very lucky to have Jon and Robert, too, who's also a great improviser.

Q: Jon Favreau, you cast Robert Downey as Tony Stark/Iron Man. Downey has had his share of ups and downs. What did that lend to his portrayal of the character?

Favreau: Downey had a lot in common with Tony Stark. Stark was a guy who lived in the public eye and had succeeded and failed in a very public way, and Robert was able to just really own the idea of being this very intelligent, very public figure who's known by everybody whenever he walks into a room. Robert has lived that. He doesn't push it in the movie. You just know that he gets it. When he walks up a red carpet in the movie or is helped into a limo or walks through a casino floor, you know that this is a guy who has lived with this kind of fame and exposure, and I think that adds dimension to an otherwise two-dimensional genre, when you have a guy who can bring that type of depth and experience to a role.

Myles Sure CBS To Renew Moonlight

Sophia Myles, who plays the mortal love interest of vampire detective Mick St. John on the CBS series Moonlight, told SCI FI Wire that she believes the show will be picked up for a second season thanks to the efforts of fans, who have been donating blood and mailing garlic to network executives to show their support.

"One of the biggest pleasures of working on this show is the fan base, because we have the most wonderful fans in the world," Myles said in an interview before appearing in a panel at Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles over the weekend. "And it kind of makes it all worthwhile knowing that there's a whole bunch of people whose hearts you're moving every Friday night and you're giving them something to look forward to. And we view them as part of the extended Moonlight family, and there wouldn't be a show without them."

Myles said that a second-season pickup is all but confirmed. "I'd put pretty much all of the money I have in my bank account on the fact that we will get picked up," the British actress said. "I think that's largely to do with the amount of fan support and dedication."

April 29, 2008: On the set of Whispers

Maj. Anne Teldy (Christina Cox) gunning for trouble

Don't mess with Capt. Alicia Vega (Leela Savasta)

Sgt. 'Dusty' Mehra (Janina Gavankar) spoiling for a firefight

Dr. Alison Porter (Nicole de Boer) ready to shoot something

A Captive Dr. Carson Beckett (Paul McGillion)

Despite the early call, it was another late night on Whispers. The morning got off to a rocky start when the treadmill needed for our first scene up failed to show. While someone from Set Dec was dispatched to track down the errant piece of exercise equipment, Will skipped ahead and shot scene 49 instead. I have to say, it’s been a real pleasure having Paul McGillion on set. He has gone all out, sacrificing life, limb, and a little dignity for the sake of this episode. Despite being battered and bruised, he is always upbeat, concluding his day on set by taking the time to thank the rest of the cast and crew before heading home. A class act.


At this point, the schedule looks something like this: First Contact and The Lost Tribe are the mid-season two-parter, episodes 9 and 10. After that, things get a little wonky. We have Alan McCullough’s location episode (q.v. yesterday‘s David Hassel Hoffan entry), Alex Levine’s Inquisition (in which Atlantis is finally made to answer for past transgressions), Carl Binder’s latest (the beat sheet arrived on my desk late this afternoon and I’m going to try to read it tomorrow morning), the Martin Gero “written and directed by spectacular“, my “a very special Stargate Atlantis” which quite possibly may see the return of the lovely Kari Wuhrer [Shep's ex-wife], CSI: Atlantis which will be helmed by Robert C. Cooper, and that season finale I was talking about. Which leaves one mystery slot.

Atlantis Season 5 Exclusive Preview!

April 29, 2008 (General)

As season four prepares to conclude airing, executive producer Joseph Mallozzi gives fans the low-down on what they can expect to see when Stargate Atlantis returns later in the year.

Joseph Mallozzi

It’s hard to believe that Stargate Atlantis’ fifth season will culminate in the airing of the show’s 100th episode. The Stargate franchise’s first spin-off is now no longer a fledgling production – it has well and truly come of age. Season five will be the second year that the executive producing and writing partnership of Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie have acted as show-runners on the series. Despite being rushed off his feet as production on the season gets underway, Mallozzi was happy to spill a few secrets about what fans have to look forward to in this, the first of our two-part chat.


Q: When you first started talking about the season as a whole with the writing staff, what things did you want to see happen throughout the year?

JM: 'Well, first of all we left things on a cliff-hanger at the end of season four, with ‘Last Man.’ We wanted to resolve that in the premiere, ‘Search and Rescue.’ We had to deal with the change of command ¬– Carter leaving and Woolsey coming in. Then there were a couple of other things that we set up last season that we wanted to continue to explore and develop, like Teyla’s pregnancy and her relationship with Kanan, and Ronon’s reunion with his old buddy Tyre, who turned out to be a Wraith worshiper. Potential romantic relationships are something that we’ve been really subtle about in the past. I think, much to the delight or perhaps the chagrin of fans, we will be getting into more of the relationship stuff in season five.

Then there’s the fact that we have episode 100 coming up, which will be funny. Robert Cooper actually came in and he pitched an idea for episodes 19 and 20, which we thought was great, so we know what we’re working towards.

Finally, we talked about shifting the status quo in the Pegasus galaxy. When we first arrived in season one, the Wraith were the main threat and by the end of season four, the Wraith were significantly weakened. So an opportunity has opened up in the Pegasus galaxy, much in the way that it did in the Milky Way once the Goa’uld were defeated. We’re suggesting that in the past when societies reached a certain level of advancement, the Wraith would sweep in and cull them, so you didn’t see many technologically advanced societies, if any at all. So what we’re going to say is that the technologically advanced societies that do exist have been in hiding and fearful of drawing the Wraith’s attention. But now, with the Wraith significantly weakened, they’re taking the opportunity to step up. So we’re going to be introducing a technologically advanced society in season five."


Check out the concluding part of our chat with Joseph Mallozzi to find out about the base’s new commander Richard Woolsey…and the further adventures of Doctor Carson Beckett!

Moonlight Raises The Stakes

12:00 AM, 29-APRIL-08

Alex O'Loughlin, who plays vampire Mick St. John on the CBS series Moonlight, told SCI FI Wire that the episodes leading up to the first-season finale will raise the stakes for all of the characters.

"This is a really cool episode coming up this week," O'Loughlin said in an interview before appearing in a panel at Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles on April 27. "Mick, for the first time, has to start seriously thinking about his level of exposure in the public eye, because when a vampire gets too overexposed, they have to change cities, change names, do all that stuff. And so we start dealing with that sort of stuff with Mick, and Josef [Jason Dohring] gets in on it, which is really cool. And the case is awesome."

Nicki Clyne: An In Depth Interview After Cally's Death

Monday, 28 April 2008

Listen to the complete interview on TV Talk with ShaunOMac

By Shaun Daily & Kenn Gold

In one of her first interviews since the death of her character, Cally Tyrol, on SCI FI’s hit series Battlestar Galactica, actress Nicki Clyne appeared live on ShaunOMac’s TV Talk. She spoke in depth about her time on the show, and what she liked about the character, what she is doing now, and her plans for the future.


Shaun> So what did you think when you opened up the script, and it said she’s going to shoot you out the launch bay?

Nicki> Actually, I didn’t find out that way. I’d been waiting to hear what was going to happen with the next season and start getting into contract negotiations and what not, and it was getting very close to the time of starting to film. I was getting a little concerned, and so I had this kind of feeling. I wasn’t really sure what it was, and then I got a call from Ron and David. Then I pretty much knew what was going on and why I didn’t have a contract. I had a really neat conversation with them when they phoned, and they were very gracious, and of course with a show like ours, which I feel is so strong with the story line and the writing aspect of it, I really didn’t question that it served the story. Of course, I’m sad. I was upset to be leaving the show, but it made sense to me, and it made it that much easier to swallow in the end.

Shaun> How was it filming those scenes? You started out sneaking after them and watching them in that chamber there talking. Then she unraveled throughout the episode. That had to be exhausting for you shooting those scenes.

Nicki> It was, it was really intense both emotionally and physically. It was good because I had a lot going on after 5 years, this being the end and knowing that. So I had a lot going on for me personally and also the physical strain of working on wires. I don’t know if you remember at the end, there’s me floating in space and we did all kinds of different set ups to try and make that work. One of them was me hanging upside down from wires and spinning around. I came home bruised and battered many days from hanging around.

The Search for Stargates

Mirror Product Description

The Stargate SG-1 Replica Mirror -- harder to find than a humble Goa'uld? Not entirely.

While we labor to get more of the hit product made and into stores as soon as possible (including ours), there are still a few out there, tucked away in reseller warehouses. For example, we have it on good authority that still has a couple dozen left in stock. So act fast before they're all gone, too!



Star Wars Artist Comes Home to Galactica (and Stargate and Serenity)

QMx is thrilled to announce that Steve Anderson has joined our team of artisans. Steve is widely known for his work as an official Star Wars artist. His coveted limited-edition prints have been featured at Star Wars conventions in both the United States and Europe, and he was recently invited to produce a limited-edition print as a featured artist at the upcoming Star Wars celebration in Japan. Steve has created artwork for Lucasfilm Licensing for all six Star Wars movies as well as the new animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which debuts later this year. In addition to his work related to the past three Indiana Jones films, he has spent several months creating art for the upcoming new Indy movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Steve has also demonstrated his talent for book cover illustration, including several New York Times best-selling hardcover novels, movie novelizations, paperback novels and e-novellas for Random House Books. His dynamic illustrations have graced a myriad of games and puzzles for Hasbro, and he has done work for numerous other licenses, including Lord of the Rings, Disney-Pixar, Universal and Marvel.

Recently, Steve has applied his artistry to television series and movies he particularly enjoys and follows -- Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. You can expect to see his work on these franchises in future QMx releases in the very near future.
