Chainsaws, Bloody Boots and Dino-Hearts: Inside National Geographic's 'T.rex Autopsy'

  • Hitfix
London, England. Something horrible has happened on TV Stage 2 at London's Pinewood Studios. Trails of sticky blood lead to and from the stage. Lurid, red fingerprints spot the doors. On the actual stage itself, the source of the carnage evident. A tyrannosaurus rex rests prone on a shiny metal platform, chest open. A sluice tray holds a stomach, curling innards and still more blood. A pair of drenched white rubber boots sits gory and ensanguinated, vacated by their owner. Science! *** *** When a network known for fact-based programming ventures into the realm of the speculative, the slope is a slippery one.  It will be years before Animal Planet and Discovery Channel recover from "Mermaids: The Body Found" and it will also probably be years before the competition stops twisting that particular knife. It's mid-April at Pinewood Studios outside of London. It's a location most associated with a fictional British spy with a license to kill,

More Horror Exclusive: Interview with William Katt; ‘Carrie’ (1976), ‘House’ (1986)

Interviewed by Michael Juvinall, More

Actor William Katt first gained notoriety by playing Carrie White’s prom date in director Brian De Palma’s masterpiece of terror, Carrie in 1976. Since then, he’s gone one to play a multitude of roles in film, television and stage. He is probably best known to horror and science fiction fans for his roles in films such as Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend (1985), House (1986). It is his role as the mild-mannered high school teacher Ralph Hinkley in the cult classic television series The Greatest American Hero (1981-86) that he will probably forever be known for the most.

A theater veteran and musician are also roles near and dear to Katt’s heart. He continues to appear in television and film roles and has numerous projects coming out in 2013. I was able to catch up with Mr. Katt at the Days of

Casting director Bill Shepard dies

Bill Shepard, a casting director who worked for Walt Disney Studios and director Mel Brooks, died Sept. 20 of a heart attack at Sherman Oaks Hospital and Health Center. He was 79.

Shepard spent 17 years casting films and TV shows at Disney, then went on to work in a similar capacity on "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" (1989) and such Brooks' comedies as "Spaceballs" (1987), "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" (1993) and "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" (1995).

Shepard was responsible for giving Michael J. Fox his first feature film role when he cast the young Canadian to star in Disney's 1980 film "Midnight Madness."

"Bill not only found stars and big players that helped make the pictures successful," Brooks said, "but he also was a genius at finding the right featured players and smaller character roles that gave my movies depth and reality. I could always rely on him to do a great job."
