Comic book fans may recognize Sam Huntington as Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns (2006), Human Target (episode 104: “Sanctuary”) and most recently the film adaptation of the Italian horror-private eye comic, Dylan Dog: Dead of the Night sharing the screen once again with co-star Brandon Routh. On television, Huntington has made a habit out of playing characters in need of some serious grooming. In 2007-08, Huntington played Andy of the Cavemen, the ABC comedy based on the Geico Insurance characters and now his most prominent role is his current one on Syfy’s hit adaptation of Being Human. Huntington recently spoke with us about his role of Josh the werewolf on Being Human, the growth of his neurotic character, what we may or may not see in this upcoming season as well all the possible places Josh and Nora will undergo their monthly transformation.

While we have no clue where they're going with the stellar UK TV series "Being Human" after the events of the last episode, we're happy we have the surprisingly well done U.S. series heading into its second season!
For those not in the know, "Being Human" is sort of like a horror fan's version of the classic sitcom "Three's Company" only without the fluffy chest hair and the ditsy blonde chick.
The series stars Sam Witwer ("Smallville", "Battlestar Galactica") as vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath ("The Assistants") as ghost Sally, and Sam Huntington ("Cavemen", Superman Returns) as the werewolf Josh.
Take your first look at Season 2 coming this January below courtesy of E! Online, and look for more on "Being Human" soon!

There's nothing supernatural or scary about Sam Huntington, but the roles he plays are still out of this world. In "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night," Huntington plays the titular detective's assistant Marcus, who is adjusting to his new status as zombie as the two take on paranormal cases in a New Orleans overrun with vampires, werewolves and the undead. Dylan Dog is played by Huntington's friend Brandon Routh, who he starred alongside in "Superman Returns."
While Huntington plays dead on the big screen, he just finished his first season playing a werewolf who rooms with a ghost and a vampire on SyFy's "Being Human." We sat down with the affable 29-year-old actor and talked about his accidental Comic-Con career trajectory and if he is as energized as the characters he plays.

Love Is In The Air! Between All The Straight Guys!
While the concept of the "bromance" is nothing new — the term was coined back in the late 90s — observing the popular culture the past couple of weeks, I can't help but feel something has changed when it comes to straight guys expressing their affection for each other. Yes, I know gay guys can be in bromances, both with other gay guys and straight guys, but that's not what I'm addressing here. And, yes, I know there have been touching examples before, but something does seem different.
What exactly? I'd say it's not just how commonplace they've become, but the depth of feeling which these straight guys are now expressing for each other. What, in my opinion, was often kind of a jokey thing in the past, (or a little bit of wishful thinking on the part of fans — see Hawaii Five-0 »

For those that missed the most recent episode of the Syfy monster hit series Being Human, there's no need to fret. We have the episode recap for you as well as a video recap below that.
In the recap clip below from the Being Human episode titled “You’re the One that I Haunt,” Aidan’s ex-love returns and he is curious as to why she didn’t wait for him in the 70s to discover that Bishop threatened her family. She’s dying and doesn’t want to deal with immortality. Josh stays next to Nora and finds out that a sonogram shows that she is 14 weeks pregnant which should be impossible, and Josh is afraid that she might be holding a litter of were-babies.

Taking over the recurring role of Logan, a former student of Ray’s, will be Kaitlin Doubleday (pictured), TVLine has learned. Her previous TV credits include Brothers & Sisters and ABC’s short-lived Cavemen.
Logan crosses paths with her onetime teach early on in Season 3, under circumstances that can be described as awkward.

I have to admit I'm really enjoying the Us version of "Being Human". Yeah, Josh is totally annoying, and Sally is nowhere near as endearing as Annie, her British counterpart. But both Aidan and Bishop kick all kinds of ass. Apparently Syfy agrees as they've just renewed the show for another year.
From Syfy on Facebook:
With 4 episodes left in this season, we're proud to announce that we've just renewed Being Human for second season! Thank you to everyone who has watched & supported it, we couldn't have done it without you!!!
The series stars Sam Witwer ("Smallville", "Battlestar Galactica") as vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath ("The Assistants") as ghost Sally, Sam Huntington ("Cavemen", Superman Returns) as werewolf Josh, and Mark Pellegrino ("Lost", "Supernatural") as Bishop: The Vamp Ringleader. Rounding out the creative team is Adam Kane ("The Mentalist", "Heroes") as director and co-executive producer with executive producer Michael Prupas ("The Kennedys »

This April Fool's Sony's Crackle is debuting Jailbait, an improvised comedy web series starring John Lehr (Cavemen, Ten Items or Less). In this fish-out-of-water story, Lehr plays Ozzie, a naive perpetual optimist who is serving nine months in prison after accidentally buying drugs in a sting operation. Jailbait also stars Bob Clendenin (Cougar Town), Tim Bagley ($#*!

If there was any doubt about the bonafides of our two Big Shill finalists, it was erased by their convincing Final Four victories over two advertising powerhouses from the old school. Flo the Progressive Insurance Lady treated the Budweiser Clydesdales worse than the poor pony at the end of True Grit, clinching Flo’s spot in the final by more than 41 percentage points. And the Pillsbury Doughboy just kept giggling creepily while Mrs. Butterworth — sweet ol’ Mrs. Butterworth — attempted to repeatedly tap-out during his 50 point rout.
Now the two steely icons are poised for one last shillanigan. Yesterday’s battlefields »

Though we're still not entirely sure why they just couldn't start running the original hit British TV series "Being Human", it seems that the folks over at Syfy are obviously on the right track with their remake.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the premiere episode of the U.S. redo of the British supernatural drama "Being Human" drew two million total viewers at 9:00 Pm, setting a network record as the most-watched winter launch since 2005. It drew one million viewers in the adults 18-49 demo, and 58% of that were women (582,000), a record for Syfy for an original series. Including repeats at 10:02 and 11:02 p.m., "Being Human" drew a total of 3.8 million viewers for the night.
The series stars Sam Witwer ("Smallville", "Battlestar Galactica") as vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath ("The Assistants") as ghost Sally, Sam Huntington ("Cavemen", Superman Returns) as werewolf Josh, and Mark Pellegrino ("Lost", "Supernatural") as Bishop: The Vamp Ringleader. »

The series stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, and Sam Huntington as a vampire, ghost and werewolf all living under the same roof to assist each other with the challenges they face in supernatural life post human. Being Human Syfy puts a fresh spin on the recent serge of vampires and werewolves.
Check out the trailer below the official details from "SyFy".
Being Human is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three 20-something roommates: A ghost, a vampire and a werewolf who are struggling to keep their dark secrets from the world, while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.

Think you have problems? Tell that to Josh, a former medical school student whose life was irrevocably shattered when he was viciously attacked by a werewolf. Now once a month, he battles the creature lurking within while struggling to fit into society along with his two new unique roommates, the vampire Aidan (played by Sam Witwer) and the ghostly Sally (Meaghan Rath). Based on the popular British series of the same name, Syfy's horror/comedy/action show Being Human kicks off January 17th. Actor Sam Huntington (who formerly starred in TV's Cavemen, as well as the films Superman Returns and the as-yet-to-be-released Dylan Dog) spoke exclusively with me about why starring as Josh is anything but a curse.

Being Human, Syfy’s latest original series, premieres Monday, the 17th, at 9/8c. Well it’s not really original at all. Much like The Office, this new Syfy series is the American version of BBC’s Being Human starring Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner. The story revolves around a werewolf, a vampire, and a ghost who try to live together and get along.
The Syfy series stars Sam Witwer (Smallville), Meaghan Rath (18 to Life) and Sam Huntington (Human Target, Cavemen). Can it match up to BBC’s series, without the British wit and edge? In the past year, Syfy has tamed down their core show roster, focusing on shows that have more mass audience appeal and less dark drama. Shows like Warehouse 13 succeed, whereas serious series like Caprica and Stargate Universe have been placed on the cancellation block. Can you fault the cable network for appeasing the viewership that is there? »
