David Blue Talks Stargate Universe

Friday, April 2, 2010

by Melody Simpson


Stargate Universe returns tonight with all new episodes and after a great preview interview at Syfy's Upfront event, I talked to David Blue again for a more in depth look in the show and what else he's up to. Check it out...

A brief excerpt:

What are you most excited for the fans to see in the second half of SGU?
DB: "The first few episodes back will set the tone. It goes back to the stories that were planned out in the beginning. Getting to know these characters is going to pay off and it's going to be really amazing. I'm just excited not to have to wait anymore for everyone else to watch "Space" and "Divided." It's so interesting to see where the people go. When I finished episode 20, I thought, "Wait, this is it?" I was amazed and it hit me that there weren't going to be anymore episodes until we shot them. And it really annoyed me. I want to know what's next and I know the fans will too."

A Conversation with Agam Darshi

April 2
by Entertainment Examiner Mike Parker


Canadian actor Agam Darshi is currently in production on the third season of the hit sci-fi series Sanctuary. Agam plays manipulative con artist Kate Freelander on the series, which follows the adventures of the enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus, and her team as they track down, study and protect the strange and often terrifying creatures that secretly populate our world and live among us. American audiences have seen the Canadian beauty on television in guest starring roles in Psych and Stargate: Universe as well as on the big screen in such blockbusters as Roland Emmerich's 2012.

A brief excerpt:

Mike Parker – In order to make it as an actor you have to have a pretty thick skin, because rejection is a big part of the process. Yet you scored a role on your very first audition and have never looked back.
Agam Darshi – I don't think you can get away from rejection. I've been lucky. I've had a really good career up to this point, but I've had roles that I've really wanted but didn't get and roles I've been cast for that got cut or re-cast. I've felt the harder side of the business for sure.

Stargate Atlantis - SciFi Wire: Video - New trailer for Splice ... with David Hewlett

At SciFi Wire:

New trailer for Splice highlights a new kind of creature

By Patrick Lee
ON 04/02/10

A new trailer has gone live for Splice, the new sci-fi creature feature from American-born Canadian director Vincenzo Natali (Cube), below. It gives us a much better idea of what the central creature is, and she's not exactly what you'd expect. [AND co-stars Stargate Atlantis' David Hewlett!]

The trailer also features the film's new tag line—"Science's newest miracle is a mistake"—and a June 4 release date!

Splice offers a creepy cool take on the genre and stars Adrien Brody (King Kong) and Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Dead) as two scientists who marry human and animal DNA to create a new creature, with disastrous results. Guillermo del Toro produced.

We're in! Are you?

Interview: David Blue

SGU's wisecracking everynerd on a wild ride that's getting wilder

By Mark Wilson, Guide

Apr 2 2010


Hard-working actor David Blue is known to genre fans both as Logan, the vampire techie on Moonlight, and as Eli Wallace, the gamer who unexpectedly finds himself at the middle of the Stargate Universe mission (not to mention a compelling stint on Ugly Betty). The day before the premiere of SGU's season 1.5 (April 2, 2010, on Syfy), David talked to me about how the new half-season of SGU is going to be explosive, forcing Eli to step up and decide who he wants to be. Plus thoughts on how his characters fare in the romance department, being a fan and feeling the fans' expectations, the possibility of an SGU musical episode, and the last days of Moonlight (and whether it has a future).

A brief excerpt:

Let's start with the tee-shirt -- "You are here." Did that start from the idea there must be a lot of Elis in the audience?
DB: "You know I'd love to take credit for that, but early on I was at the Sundance Film Festival and I got a call from our wonderful costume designer, Val Halverson, and she asked me my favorite colors. Unfortunately I didn't know she was talking about what I'd be wearing. I told her that I love red and black. So she presented me for the costume fitting with a whole bunch of shirts, and one of them was the red "You are here shirt." And I really liked a lot of the other ones [laughs], I really liked some of the blue ones, the green ones, but they were all really, really cool shirts, very geeky and fun. I never in a million years thought that they would go for the "You are here" shirt. But I like it, and in a strange way it has actually affected some of the plots you'll see this season. I have a lot more respect for the actors on Lost now [laughs], wearing the same thing all the time. Anytime that there's even a hope of wearing something else, I'm like begging at Val's sleeve, "Please let me wear something else!"

I'm still lucky though, because all the military types are wearing uniforms all day. My everyday costume is a tee shirt and a hoodie. I could not be more comfortable."


Stargate Universe - Brian J. Smith Interview

Brian J Smith talks Character Moments, Fan Interactions & His Need To Stay Busy During Hiatus

Written by Terry Humphreys – 02/04/2010


Around here, it's well known that without Brian J Smith's support of our reviews and the Hiatus Project that this site likely wouldn't be around, so it only felt fitting to launch the site with an interview with him.

Brian was really sick when we spoke so no audio with this one!

After we'd caught up and discussed the ever elusive poster his mom is waiting for, we got down to some questions, hope you enjoy!

A brief excerpt:

Terry: You have some really interesting character moments with the others on the "Destiny", especially with Young, Eli, Rush and Chloe, do you have a favorite scene so far? Either from what we have seen or from the ones we haven't seen yet?
Brian: There are a couple things coming up that are a little… I know exactly what you're talking about with all those scenes, I love those too. There's some great stuff coming up between Scott and TJ that I really really like, made a lot of sense to me. It's a beautiful episode called "Faith" a lot of it's about TJ and Scott is there going through it with her, and I really really love that episode. A lot of people, who have seen it, love it as well. Most of the cast have seen it and we all really like that episode. There's a great moment with me and Greer that happens later in the season, that's not really of the like degree, but it reveals a lot about Scott and Greer and their differences, kind of their basic differences of military ideology and just personality. It's so hard to choose, kind of like picking a kid, what is your favorite kid. All these moments while they are kind of fun to me individually; I like what they all add up to. What they all add up to saying about the characters. It says a lot, it's very complex and kind of ambiguous.

I'm glad that you know, in a lot of shows you will go a whole season and not have one of those kinds of moments of connection with another person. I'm grateful that the writers have given us so many opportunities to do that here.


Stargate Universe - Show Patrol: Louis Ferreira Interview

Louis Ferreira faces old, new foes in 'Stargate Universe'

by Curt Wagner on 04.02.10


When "Stargate Universe" returns Friday, things won't be going well for Col. Everett Young.

The leader of a rag-tag band of survivors aboard the starship Destiny, played by Louis Ferreira, is second-guessing his shocking decision to abandon his chief antagonist, Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle), on a dusty planet.
"I think it weighs heavy on him," Ferreira told me during a recent phone interview. "He's a kind of a fatherly figure. It's that old-school, '50's dad that people say, 'My father, man, he's just [bleeping] tough and would never let me get away with that.' But he has a heart of gold, you know?"...


A brief excerpt:

Rush and Camille Wray (Ming-Na) are sort of the troublemakers, the pains in the butt. But Young seems to be the one having issues with them. It makes me wonder if he's actually the problem? As he says of Rush, "He's a lot of work." Is Young really a lot of work?
Yeah. Well, he's not the greatest. I think that [the writers will] be very happy when [viewers] are all over the place: "We like Rush! No, we don't! it's Young, now it's Rush, now it's Young. And no, no, it's Scott!" You know what I mean?

I think that's the show that they intended to create. I think in the last episode, "Justice," Young makes a very harsh, rash decision that some could easily question. I understand the questionability of it ... But Young's intention is to get people home, and he has a guy whose clear intention is to explore this ship [instead]. I think people on the fan side are going, "Well, no, we want to stay on the ship, that's what we want to see, we want to see the ship." Right? So they can easily side that way [with Rush].

But the reality for me is that if you are standing in the way of getting us home and [Young] makes the decision that Eli ... may be my ticket [home]. He may be my Rush without the evil, if you will. And that's enough for [Young] to sort of make the decision that he does.
