Seth Gabel stars in Allegiance as Lt. Danny Sefton, a member of the National Guard that is somehow released from serving with the rest of his company in Iraq. ShockYa was glad to get the chance to speak with Gabel about his role and the state of military films today. “Allegiance” comes to DVD and Blu-ray January 15, 2013. What made you want to do this movie? What drew you to the script? Seth Gabel: What drew me to it mostly were the people involved. I think the script is fantastic, but the people involved—the director Michael Connors, the producer Sean Mullin, many of the other producers as well—almost everyone [ Read More ]
Adding an extra layer of authenticity and intensity, the indie drama Allegiance is based on writer/director Mike Connors’ own personal experiences serving in the military while also paying tribute to the 21 million veterans living in the United States today. The story follows Lieutenant Danny Sefton (Seth Gabel), who has received a questionable transfer that will keep him safely stationed back home while his National Guard unit deploys to one of the most dangerous cities in Iraq. When the unit’s best medic, Specialist Reyes (Bow Wow), is denied a compassionate reassignment to stay home with his terminally ill son, he asks Sefton to help him go Awol. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Seth Gabel (who played Lincoln Lee on the Fox TV series Fringe) talked about what made him want to be a part of this film, the type of leader his character is, how »

Speaking with Collider while promoting his new movie Allegiance, Seth Gabel (Fringe) discusses his role as the villain 'The Count' in an early 2013 episode of The CW's Arrow. Based on the character Count Vertigo, this incarnation of the DC Comics character is very different from the comic version. "I play The Count, who’s based on Count Vertigo of the comic book series. Instead of having superpowers, the powers are manifested in a drug called Vertigo, that I sell on the street. I’m essentially this street thug/drug kingpin, taking over the streets of Starling City. The way I justified being a super-villain, if you will, is that the character cares so much about money and power that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to acquire those things. In being totally consumed by money and power, I can completely ignore any questionable ethics, along that process, and »
After roles on the big screen in The Da Vinci Code and arcs on TV shows such as Nip/Tuck and Dirty Sexy Money, Seth Gabel made a name for himself as Fringe agent Lincoln Lee on the hit Fox series Fringe.

The actor portrays Lieutenant Danny Sefton, a soldier in the National Guard who must choose between one of his soldiers in need, and his family. I recently had the chance to speak with this talented actor over the phone. Take a look at what he had to say. »

Allegiance - Exclusive The Chase
After being granted a questionable transfer that will keep him stateside as his National Guard unit deploys for Iraq, Lieutenant Danny Sefton (Seth Gabel) becomes embroiled in a last minute Awol attempt by one of his soldiers (Bow Wow), forcing him to choose between his loyalties to the fleeing soldier, his unit and his own fiancé.
According to TVGuide, The CW has signed former Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes to portray Roy Harper, who DC Comics fans know as 'Red Arrow', 'Speedy' or even 'Arsenal'. However, it's quite obvious we won't see him shooting arrows just yet. Executive Producer Greg Berlanti said that "We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf and we are thrilled he's joining Arrow." The CW has described the character as "a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,' the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City.". Harper will be introduced as a love interest to Thea Queen, who is "destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow." The character is expected to show up in Early 2013 after the mid-season finale, and will be introduced to Oliver in "an unexpected way". Haynes joins Seth Gabel (Vertigo), John Barrowman, Katie Cassidy, »
Seth Gabel has described his Arrow guest stint as "the most fun... ever". The former Fringe star will play drug kingpin The Count, who floods the streets of Starling City with a deadly narcotic. "It's the most fun I've ever had," Gabel told TVLine. "[My look is] very street, in a flamboyant, theatrical, grounded way - a lot of black." Gabel added that his villainous character - based on DC Comics character Count Vertigo - "basically rule[s] the street". "[Oliver Queen has] got a long way to go up the chain to get (more) »

Stephen Amell, who plays the freshman hit’s titular vigilante and his not-so-mild-mannered alter ego, likens this week’s “really cool” outing to a movie, saying, “It’s like nothing that we’ve had so far on the show visually.” And on the action front, Oliver and Helena “get right into it,” now that they’re privy to each other’s secret identities. »

Arrow has cast yet another major role.
With John Barrowman debuting this past week as Tommy's father and Seth Gabel set to come on board as a villain based on the comic book character Vertigo, Entertainment Weekly now confirms that Manu Bennett has signed on as Slade Wilson.
Wilson will portray Deathstroke, who viewers have already seen (masked) on the island of Lian Yu. When will his transform from Wilson into this well-known adversary for Stephen Amell's hooded vigilante?
"You’ll just have to keep watching Arrow," a series insider tells EW.
Okay, fine. Twist our arm.
Bennett is best known for his run on Spartacus. He will appear on multiple Arrow Season 1 episodes. »

Few TV actors capture the persona of the slick, confident bad guy the way Mr. David Anders does. The handsome actor will always be Sark from Alias in my heart, but I will definitely make room in there for his new character on CW’s Arrow. You guessed it; there’s a new bad guy in Starling City waiting for Arrow to paint a target on his back.
Zap2it got the exclusive news that Anders was headed to the Arrow set.
Get ready, because it all unfolds during episode 13, premiering early next year (tonight’s episode is episode 7, “Muse of Fire”). Anders will play Cyrus Vanch, a really “nefarious” criminal who is fresh out of prison after a really long incarceration. He shows no signs of reform, either. I’ll be eager to watch Anders go toe to toe with Arrow star Stephen Amell.
Vanch won’t be your typical bad guy. »

John Barrowman's Well-Dressed Man, Jessica De Gouw's The Huntress, Janina Gavankar's McKenna Hall, Seth Gabel's Vertigo and the Mystery Archer: To say Arrow's Oliver Queen is going to have his hands full would be an understatement. On the CW's freshman drama, Stephen Amell's hooded vigilante is not only juggling multiple personalities but also the women, family drama and scores of Starling City baddies trying to fight against his efforts to clean up the home he loves. And if that's not enough: Oliver -- and his hooded alter-ego's -- love lives are about to get very interesting. So who's Barrowman's mysterious

Arrow co-creator Andrew Kreisberg has hinted at Seth Gabel's upcoming guest appearance. Fringe actor Gabel will play a new nemesis for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) based on DC Comics villain Count Vertigo. "[He is] going to present Oliver with a new problem, because it's the first time his actions have possibly caused things to get worse," Kreisberg told TVLine. In an early 2013 Arrow episode, Gabel's character will use the 'Vertigo' drug to disorient and unbalance his victims. "[Oliver] will have turned this somewhat minor drug dealer into a real force of destruction," (more) »

There are a million reasons to love The CW's new hit drama "Arrow" -- fifteen of which can be found here. And nothing keeps us coming back for more quite like the potential we see in the lead character's little sister, Thea (Willa Holland). She's a troubled teenager with a good heart and a bad attitude, with some hints at a bright future as a speedy sidekick. Her complicated relationship with our hero, Oliver (Stephen Amell) is in equal parts heartbreaking and hilarious, and she's quickly become a fan favorite character.
When Zap2it spoke with "Arrow" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, we were thrilled to learn that Thea's role in the show is only going to grow. "She's going to have a lot more storylines coming up," Kreisberg promises. "We're going to see Thea get a surprising new job, which is also going to lead to an unexpected new romance for her. »

The CW's No. 1 new drama, "Arrow," is on a mission to snap up every genre actor we've ever loved. As if "Torchwood" star John Barrowman and fallen "Fringe" hero Seth Gabel weren't enough to keep us coming back for more, our intrepid hooded vigilante will soon be going head to head with one of our all-time TV favorites.
Anders won us over as Sark on "Alias" and cemented his place in our hearts as the dearly departed Uncle John on "The Vampire Diaries." He can currently be seen on "Once Upon a Time" as the mysterious Dr. Frankenstein.
On "Arrow," Anders plays Cyrus Vanch, a new threat to Starling City. Vanch is a ruthless career criminal who is released from prison after a long stint. »

The cast and crew of Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World have been filming around the University of Greenwich this past week, and thanks to a selection of spy photos, we've now had our first look at the new villain Malekith the Accursed, along with his army of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. Judging from a close-up shot of Malekith, who is portrayed by British actor Christopher Eccleston (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), it would seem that his final appearance will be enhanced via some CGI during post-production, but the spy »
If I were Janina Gavankar, I would be over the moon at finding a gig that doesn’t involve me walking around buck ass nude as she is usually found doing on True Blood. I mean, I’m glad she does it, but that can’t be very rewarding for an actress. If it were me, I’d breath a sigh of relief to be cast in the CW’s Arrow, a show where you might be sexualized, but at least you’re wearing clothes. Did I mention Gavankar was cast on Arrow? She totally was and she’s about to find herself with armfuls of plot to deal with. This won’t be a naked walk in the park.
Arrow gladly accepts Gavankar’s fully covered form as McKenna Hall, according to TVLine. McKenna shares a history with Oliver from long before he disappeared and started fighting crime. What »
