The Star Trek franchise has a great tradition of seeing its actors become creatively involved behind the camera. Leonard Nimoy got the ball rolling by taking the helm of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and then co-wrote and directed Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and collaborated on the story for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In between those latter two, William Shatner co-wrote and directed Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Later, The Next Generation cast member Jonathan Frakes directed Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection. Frakes also directed many episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Other cast members who’ve helmed episodes of various incarnations, including Enterprise: Patrick Stewart, LeVar Burton, Avery Brooks, Rene Auberjonois, Roxann Dawson, Michael Dorn, Siddig El Fadil, Gates McFadden, Robert Duncan McNeill, Robert Picardo, Andrew Robinson and Tim Russ. As far as I’m willing to go through everyone’s »

They may be representing competing comic book companies, but Arrow showrunner and Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim sat down to interview his wife Tara Butters, showrunner of Agent Carter, and her longtime writing partner Michele Fazekas for The Hollywood Reporter.

Sadly for us, they’re keeping their lips sealed for now.
“I’ve never had such a high level of security,” Fazekas said. “I understand why they do it in this day and age — even when Tara and I worked as assistants on The X-Files where, when they did the first X-Files movie, they were printing script pages out on red paper so you couldn’t photocopy it and they were stamping everyone’s name on the script. »

Bizarre pet sim Seaman was arguably the Sega Dreamcast's weirdest game. And Serious Sam publisher Devolver wants to make a new one...
Over its relatively short life, the Sega Dreamcast played host to all kinds of great games. The relatively obscure Seaman was surely the weirdest.
Essentially a pet simulator, Seaman required the player to take care of an aquatic creature as it grew and evolved. But then you notice that the creature has a human face. And that it talks with the voice of Leonard Nimoy.
A microphone attachment allowed you to communicate with Seaman, and the surprisingly sophisticated AI meant that he'd often ask you (sometimes quite intimate) questions, or repeat words or phrases you mentioned in passing weeks earlier. First released in 1999 in Japan, the game became something of a cult hit, spawning a port to the PlayStation 2 and even a 2007 - though neither made it to Europe or America. »
