Ben Browder

We caught up with Colonel Cameron Mitchell, aka Ben Browder, on set to hear about his trip to the Arctic and other perks of the job making Stargate Continuum

A brief excerpt (of the interview excerpt)
... “And then...” Browder adds, “you get prosthetics which are so beautifully made that you just stand in them, adjust your voice a little bit, adjust your walk a little bit, that doesn’t feel like work either. At the end of the day you just look in the mirror and go, ‘Oh, I’m an old guy. I’m an old sea dog. Look at me, I’m a sea dog, put the cap on, y’know?’ And that isn’t work, that’s play.

Caprica - NBCUMV: Sci Fi Greenlights 'Caprica' to Series



Published: December 2, 2008

'Battlestar Galactica' Prequel Gets 20 Episode Order

Series Slated for 2010 Premiere

Stars Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker

NEW YORK – December 2, 2008 - SCI FI Channel has greenlit production on the new original series Caprica, ordering 20 hours of the drama including the two-hour pilot, it was announced today by Dave Howe, President, SCI FI. Caprica is the prequel to SCI FI's hit original series Battlestar Galactica and stars Eric Stoltz (Milk, Chicago Hope), Esai Morales (Jericho, NYPD Blue), Paula Malcomson (Deadwood, ER) and Golden Globe nominee Polly Walker (Cane, Rome).

Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) and Daniel Greystone (Eric Stoltz)

Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families – the Graystones and the Adamas – as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own. Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics. Caprica will deliver all of the passion, intrigue, political backbiting and family conflict in television's first science fiction family saga. Production on the series is slated to begin summer '09 in Vancouver for a 2010 premiere. Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) directed the pilot.

"Caprica will build on Battlestar Galactica's acclaimed legacy of gripping drama and extraordinary characters," says Dave Howe in making the announcement. "It's the beginning of a brand new epic saga that will appeal to both new viewers, totally unfamiliar with the Battlestar franchise, as well as existing loyal and passionate Battlestar fans."

Amanda Graystone (Paula Malcomson) and Daniel Greystone

"Ron, David and Remi have created an amazing series with thought-provoking storytelling that deals with a world very similar to our own. It's definitely not as dark as Battlestar, but like that show, this series has smart, dimensional characters who grapple with issues of love, sex and politics from a world in transition," says Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming for SCI FI & Co-Head Original Content, Universal Cable Productions.

As the series begins, a startling development is about to occur - the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node or "Cylon" – the ability to marry artificial intelligence with mechanical bodies. Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) – father of future Battlestar commander William Adama (Sina Najafi) – a renowned civil liberties lawyer, becomes an opponent of the experiments undertaken by the Graystones (Eric Stoltz), owners of a large computer corporation that is spearheading the development of these living robots: the Cylons.

Sister Clarice Willow (Polly Walker)

Caprica is produced by Universal Cable Productions and executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick (Battlestar Galactica) and Remi Aubuchon (24). It is co-written by Aubuchon and Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights).

Close Up: Bill Nye

December 1, 2008 (Actors)

In `Brain Storm' Bill Nye helps save the day in under 40 minutes, and that's pretty cool. Plus there's freeze lightening! Come on!

A brief excerpt:

... [Bill] Nye also relished the chance to work alongside old friend Neil deGrasse Tyson in a different capacity. Tyson, an astrophysicist, and Nye have served on the board of The Planetary Society together for almost 10 years.
"Working with Neil was a blast!" Nye exclaimed. "Neil had never really done any acting … I was quite charmed by how seriously he took it, and frankly, what a good job he did. I thought that was wonderful."

Nye insisted he had a blast running around in a tux for a week. When asked about his planetary themed bow tie, Nye exclaimed, "I brought that! And Neil brought his. It's the nerds, man; showing up with our gear."

Tyson and Nye weren't the only guest stars recruited for `Brain Storm'. Veteran comedic actor Dave Foley also came on board to play Rodney McKay's academic nemesis, Malcolm Tunney. Nye was thrilled to work with Foley.
"Oh god, he's a riot!" Nye exclaimed. "I mean, he's Kids in the Hall. He's the real deal. I mean, he's a majorly comic actor. Very professional..."
