Accent Envy and Schizophrenia – James Callis and Tricia Helfer Talk Battlestar Galactica

27 February 2013 7:00 AM, PST

When you think of Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica the image of Dr. Gaius Baltar and Six is undoubtedly one of the first images that comes to mind. We were lucky to have Tricia Helfer and James Callis be amongst the featured guests at the recent Sci-Fi Expo, presented by Dallas Comic-Con, held just a few weeks ago in Dallas, Texas. In the Battlestar Galactica Q&A panel that Helfer and Callis did along with Edward James Olmos, they revealed some interesting details about getting cast for the show and about their hand in crafting their characters.

When asked if there was any glowering going on from fellow Brit Jamie Bamber to James Callis since Callis got to use his native British accent while Bamber had to perform with an American accent, Callis commented to the contrary:

James Callis: No, as an English actor, there’s a few things »

First Episode of Revolution’S Live Action Web Series is Here

27 February 2013 6:00 AM, PST

The Wheatley letters were great, but this new live action web series from NBC’s Revolution is more of my kind of thing. The web series takes place 11 years after the blackout and four years before most of the main series. General Monroe (David Lyons) has just survived the first assassination attempt made by Miles Matheson (Billy Burke). He calls on Captain Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) to hunt down who else could have been involved in the plot. This first episode really sets the tone for the series. I can’t wait to see what else is in store.

Pepper Potts is the Subject of the Latest Character Poster for Marvel’s Iron Man 3

27 February 2013 4:00 AM, PST

Monday we brought you the character posters for Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine), Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) and Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin) and I was pretty taken with the Ben Kingsley poster, for sure. Today we have the poster for Pepper Pots (Gwyneth Paltrow) and rather having her looking back over her shoulder like Cheadle and Pearce, she almost seems in mourning, clutching Iron Man’s helmet. It’s a pretty heart-wrenching stance.

I think at this point it would be a good time to remind you of the first poster in this series, since they seem to so clearly go together.

Premiere Date and More for Teen Wolf Season 3

26 February 2013 3:15 PM, PST

Teen Wolf is back on our radar, and you know what that means: it’s time for me to once again start harassing those of you who have not yet given the show a try, and once again tell you that it has really nothing to do with the 1980s Michael J. Fox movie, beyond a couple of the names and the fact that the main character is a high school student who becomes a werewolf.

It’s actually on my very limited A list, because the cast chemistry is out of the park, the stories are twisty, and the pace is fast. Plus, everyone is gorgeous, in a but-they-don’t-flaunt-it sort of way. It isn’t whiny at all, and is a perfect summer watch. Okay, maybe this will help some of you:

How about now? And yes, the girls are just as charmingly attractive. Here’s the latest »

Catch Up Featurette and New Screen Shot from Falling Skies Season 3

26 February 2013 11:00 AM, PST

Giant weapon pointed into space! New aliens! Hal is (literally) bugged! Anne’s pregnancy may not be normal! TNT‘s Falling Skies sure left us with a lot of questions, and left the production with a lot to work with going into its third season. Don’t worry if it’s all a little fuzzy to you – the Season 2 finale was back in August, after all – because we have a new featurette to remind you.

Here you’ll see the big questions (in big graphics) and what the producers have to say about them. I may be forgetting some things, but it seems like they’re also pointing out a few nuances we, or at least I, may have missed. We also get a wee bit of our first look at Season 3 in the closing seconds:

Possible Last Wheatley Letter for Revolution

26 February 2013 9:00 AM, PST

Wheatley has been a tortured soul through all of this mess. He talks in this letter about even being forced to fight against his own people to keep his cover. Maybe you figured it out already, but Wheatley is a character we’ve seen before and in this episode we see what may be the end of his timeline. It recalls a moment in Revolution Episode 9, “Kashmir,” where these webisodes converge with the show. We will have to see what is in store for us next week.

Webisode: Wheatley’s Letters: September 15th – Revolution

Midseason Premiere Date and Time for Warehouse 13 Announced

26 February 2013 7:00 AM, PST

Well kids, you’re in for a surprise or two. We now have an official premiere date for the second half of season 4 of Warehouse 13, and it’s April 29, two weeks after the series premiere of Defiance. So right off the bat we have a surprise; two weeks after the Defiance premiere, not the same day, not a week later.

But guess why it can’t be the same day as the two hour premiere of Defiance? Because, according to EW, Warehouse 13 will be airing at 10/9c. Those of you who enjoyed watching the show with your kids hopefully won’t be too thrown by this, as even when it was on at 9/8c that was pretty late for the east and west coasters and you probably DVR’d it anyway. Still, this is a big move for the show, and it will be interesting to see how »

Tallahassee Cast in Amazon’s Zombieland

26 February 2013 6:00 AM, PST

The last of the four main characters has finally been cast for the Amazon series Zombieland. The part of Tallahassee will be played by Kirk Ward (The Island), played in the movie by Woody Harrelson. He’s joining the other three already cast, Columbus (Tyler Ross), Wichita (Maiara Walsh), and her younger sister Little Rock (Izabela Vidovic).

Together they will follow the tone of the Zombieland motion picture, battling zombies to survive the apocalypse with what will likely be more humor than we are used to seeing watching The Walking Dead.

According to Deadline, this is a reunion of sorts for Kirk Ward and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who had originally wanted Ward to play Tallahassee when they had first started. I’ll bet getting the show back on the television where it was intended with the actor they had intended to star in it might be pretty rewarding for Reese and Wernick, »

Our Favorite Island Dweller Mark Pellegrino joins The Tomorrow People

25 February 2013 2:00 PM, PST

Since Lost ended in 2010, sci-fi fans have had a myriad of television shows to spot their favorite four-toed-foot inhabitant, Mark Pellegrino. He’s had roles on Revolution, Supernatural and Being Human and now he’s joined the cast to co-star on The CW‘s The Tomorrow People.

The show centers around extraordinary people with the next stage of evolution’s super-human abilities. According to Deadline, Mark Pellegrino will play Dr. Jedikiah Price, who finds these abilities threatening to the human race.

He joins Peyton List (Mad Men), who will play Cara, Luke Mitchell (Home and Away), who will play John Young, and Robbie Amell (Alcatraz and also younger cousin to Arrow’s Stephen Amell), who will play Stephen. All these characters have special abilities of some sort and do what they can to avoid Dr. Jedikiah Price (Pellegrino).

Director Tweets From the Set and More Pics for The Wolverine

25 February 2013 11:00 AM, PST

Thank goodness more and more directors are taking to Twitter to feed us info and pics about their projects. James Mangold, director of the upcoming The Wolverine, recently took to the Twitterverse and shared this info and pic of star Hugh Jackman and his ridiculously well ripped arms, from the set in Japan:

Potential Once Upon A Time Spinoff May Mean a Replacement Mad Hatter

25 February 2013 9:00 AM, PST

It’s one of those bad news/potentially good news things. Word is out that the folks behind ABC‘s blockbuster Once Upon a Time are considering a spinoff series for Jefferson/The Mad Hatter. The Jefferson-centric episode from Season 1, “Hat Trick”, was easily one of my favorites of the entire series. That’s the potentially good news.

The bad news is that, for that reason, they’re looking for a replacement for Sebastian Stan, who played the character. The very excellent Stan played Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger, and according to THR, his work in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and in a play on Broadway are keeping him too busy to be able to take on the project right now.

Thus the hunt for someone new as The Hatter. ABC and producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are deciding if they’ll be putting together a »

Exclusive Interview with Being Human’s Sam Witwer on His Vampire Character’s History and Humanity

25 February 2013 8:00 AM, PST

Vampires. They’re the brooding and seductively dangerous supernatural creatures that continue to appeal to audiences. But when you think about it, how do you keep a vampire character that’s 260+ years old intriguing? Syfy’s Being Human does just that with the vampire character, Aidan, who was turned during the American Revolutionary war. I caught up with actor Sam Witwer who portrays Aidan on the show that’s now in its third season to ask him about his character’s history and what gives Aidan depth.

One note before I give you the interview below, I was going to ask Sam about voicing Darth Maul on Clone Wars before delving into Aidan but Sam revealed something unexpected:

SciFiMafia: You play evil so well…

Sam Witwer: [laughs] You know, before you continue on, I don’t know why I just thought about this…

Sfm: What?

Sam Witwer:  …but I »

3 Awesome Character Posters for Iron Man 3

25 February 2013 4:00 AM, PST

I’ll admit I was on the fence with Iron Man 3. The trailers looked cool, yeah, but there wasn’t anything that really grabbed my attention. Until now. After looking at the three character posters we have for you here featuring Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine), Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) and Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin), I am no longer wavering.

I cannot look away from Kingsley’s poster. It is just so awesome. He brings his best to every performance he gives and I know this will be no exception.

I mean, that is not a dude you mess with.

Marvel StudiosIron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. »
