Sam Witwer Speaks on "Defining" Being Human Season, Aidan's Journey and Star Wars

11 February 2013 6:35 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Sam Witwer's character Aidan may have recently gained the nickname "Twilight," but he's got a lot more on his plate to deal with than simple romance on Being Human.

I recently spoke with the actor about what makes working on the show so special, what's in store for the brooding vampire and if there's any chance of him taking on a potential Star Wars movie role.

Witwer's resume is an impressive one, including characters such as Doomsday on Smallville and Crashdown on Battlestar Galactica. However, Being Human marks the first time he's played the same individual for multiple seasons.

"I've always been kind of a nomadic actor... This is the first time that I've actually hung around and wanted to hang around," he said, adding:

"The fact is, on Being Human, Sammy [Huntington], Meaghan [Rath] and Kristen [Hager] are three of my closest friends. I love being around them. I mean, we »

Alex Karpovsky's Living Situation Mirrored His 'Girls' Character's

4 February 2013 4:11 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

The gradual, uneasy evolution of Ray and Shoshannah's relationship has been the emotional foil of the coke-fueled dance parties and bizarre doll threesomes of "Girls'" second season.

In this weekend's episode "It's A Shame About Ray," Shoshannah (Zosia Mamet) realized that Ray (Alex Karpovsky) had been living in her apartment and sharing her bed without ever officially announcing that he'd moved in. The truth came out at Hannah's dinner party, when Ray admitted that when he wasn't crashing at his younger girlfriend's place, he was living out of his car.

For Karpovsky, an actor and director who's worked with "Girls" star Lena Dunham dating back to her debut film "Tiny Furniture," the arc bore a surprising resemblance to his real living situation. In an interview with HuffPost TV, Karpovsky revealed that he's never had had his own apartment, and shared Ray's experiences of couch-surfing, sub-letting, and living with his »

Recap: 'Girls' Delivers Best Episode Of Season 2 Yet With The Touching "It's A Shame About Ray"

4 February 2013 7:04 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Seaon 2, Episode 4: "It's A Shame About Ray" With the second season of "Girls" arriving less than a year after the first season wrapped, and with the third season slated to start production in March, we've been wondering if the quick turnaround has had a detrimental effect on the show. So far season two has been good, just not great. The first three episodes have hopscotched around a bit, setting up the characters again in the premiere, quickly dealing with an interracial relationship by the end of the second episode and last week, the show dipped toward novelty with cocaine-fueled hijinks. However, last night Dunham delivered an episode that harkens back to the heart and humor that made the first season so winning, in what is easily this season's best instalment so far. The first notable thing about "It's A Shame About Ray" is that all four characters -- Hannah, »

Girls Review: Dinner Party From Hell

2 February 2013 7:35 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Coming off of "Bad Friend" - which was a pretty fun and amusing episode of Girls - we hit an emotional spot this week. In "It's a Shame About Ray," Hannah hosted a dinner party that ignited all sorts of troubles, particularly for Marnie and Shoshanna.

Meanwhile, Jessa was off at her own disastrous meal with her new in-laws, who were not invited to her wedding.

It was only a matter of time before the odd couple otherwise known as Jessa and Thomas John hit their first real marital rough patch. She's a free spirit and he's an uptight finance guy and they got married on a whim after hating each other and then hooking up for a few weeks. Did you think the first time she met his parents would go well?

It doesn't matter how well Jessa behaved when dealing with a duo like that. Actually, it was »

Being Human (USA) season 3 episode 2 review: (Dead) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

21 January 2013 11:52 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Kaci Ferrell Jan 22, 2013

Purebred werewolves are back causing trouble in this week's solid Being Human (USA)...

This review contains spoilers.

3.2 (Dead) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

In retrospect, I suppose it's not a surprise that the twin purebred werewolves storyline is rearing its ugly head again, since it probably needs resolution, but I have to be honest in telling you that I'm not too happy about it. I thought it was one of the weakest parts of season two and I would've been quite pleased if it was never brought up again. 

But this episode introduces us to Liam McClean, Connor and Brynn's father. Apparently it's been a year and a half and Brynn hasn't come home to daddy yet, so this is the first time he's hearing of the fact that his son is dead and nailed to the wall of a vampire hidey hole. When he's not »

Being Human (USA) season 3 episode 1 review: It's A Shame About Ray

14 January 2013 11:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Kaci Ferrell Jan 15, 2013

Being Human (USA) returns for season three with a grave-digging extravaganza. Here's Kaci's impressed review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 It's a Shame About Ray

If there is one word for the season three premiere of Being Human (USA), it is "disturbing," and I mean that in the best possible way. I feel like the creative team broke out the big guns this season and decided to stop playing around with us. After the drop in quality during season two, I find myself overwhelmed with how awesome this show is. It's like I forgot and the writers were determined to remind me. 

I don't read spoilers for this show, so I was immediately surprised by the fact that rather than pick up in the woods where we last left our favourite werewolves, we've jumped forward a year and a half — and one of our werewolves...well, isn't. »

Being Human Review: I Am A Human Being!

14 January 2013 7:10 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Despite the fact I cannot get the Lemonheads' song out of my mind, I still find it difficult to remember that all Being Human show titles are named after singles.

It's really crazy how well they manage to fit a title to an episode, and "It's a Shame About Ray" was no exception. Well, except that it really isn't a shame about Ray. 

He was kind of a turd and his crusty heart brought back Sally's body in the flesh, so... screw Ray!

Oh, how I have missed Sam Huntington on my TV screen. When Being Human Season 2 ended with the ringing of a gunshot in the woods, I never imagined Josh would be cured of his werewolfism (ummm...I don't think that's a word, but I'm running with it). He’s actually human again.

It’s been 15 months since that gunshot, so we don’t know everything that happened, »

'Being Human': Season 3 is everything we wished for ... and more

14 January 2013 1:08 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The tagline for the third season of Syfy's "Being Human" -- returning tonight (Jan. 14) -- is "be careful what you wish for."

For the supernatural roommates -- vampire Aiden (Sam Witwer), ghost Sally Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) -- that means mortality. You know, being human and all that jazz.

And with its compelling first episodes, Season 3 also breathes new life into the series itself, revitalizing what many disappointed "Being Human" fans considered to be a sophomore slump.

Showrunner Anna Fricke has steered "Being Human" (which she and husband Jeremy Carver, now helming "Supernatural," adapted from the original British series) to a fertile new landscape -- nearly reinventing the show's original premise.

Tonight's premiere jumps 15 months ahead of the Season 2 finale, when Aiden was buried alive (-ish) in an unmarked grave, Sally was exiled to limbo, and Josh's fate as a werewolf, as well as his girlfriend Nora's »
