Babylon 5: the wonder that is Stephen Furst’s Vir Cotto

Jules-Pierre Malartre Jun 28, 2017

We salute a much-loved Babylon 5 character, played by the much-missed Stephen Furst...

A little less than a year ago, in the wake of Jerry Doyle’s passing, Babylon 5 creator J.M. Straczynski made a passionate plea to the universe; too many B5 alumni had died already. Following the untimely deaths of Michael O’Hare, Richard Biggs, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and more recently Jerry Doyle, Straczynski was “goddamned tired of it” and he asked the universe to “knock it off for a while”.

Remembering Jerry Doyle

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mindMemories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine- Mac DavisSince the terrible news broke of the sudden death of Jerry Doyle, my mind has been turning some of the pages of memory back to the times I had the honor and pleasure of meeting him. Over the years, I quickly learned that every individual is unique in their own ways, and believe me, Jerry Doyle was no exception.My first memories of Jerry were from Shore Leave in Maryland. We had arrived at the autograph line where he was signing, but we came up short time-wise.

Babylon 5: 14 alternatives to a straight reboot

  • Den of Geek
There are plenty of interesting directions a return to the Babylon 5 universe could take. Here are a few suggestions...

I read somewhere that J.M. Straczynski writes every day. That’s not surprising given his extensive body of work for television, motion pictures, novels and comics. He is best known for Babylon 5, of course. I remember what a lot of people used to say about Babylon 5, “How much can happen on a space station?” Well, a lot actually! And after five seasons of the original series, a bunch of made-for-tv movies and a couple of spin-offs, there are still plenty of stories left to tell.

That is why I was excited recently to read that Joe (apparently, he thinks you’re cool if you just call him Joe) was going back to work on Babylon 5. My excitement soon turned to dread when I found out that

Changed Man

  • Backstage
J. Michael Straczynski has carved out a prolific career as a TV writer-producer, creating science-fiction phenomenon Babylon 5, and cult classic Jeremiah. He's also a popular comic book scribe, having penned adventures for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, Thor, and the Fantastic Four. But 2008 marks a new stage in the career of the man who is affectionately known by his passionate fan base simply as Jms.Straczynski's feature script, Changeling, is now a major motion picture that's expected to be a key player in this year's awards season. The film, which was directed by Clint Eastwood and stars Angelina Jolie, chronicles the true story of Christine Collins, a '20s-era single mother who becomes enmeshed in a web of political corruption when she tries to find her kidnapped son. Currently, Straczynski is working on a slew of high-profile projects, including scripts for the Paul Greengrass–helmed They Marched Into Sunlight
