Teryl Rothery was at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane earlier this week and some clips from her Q&A showed up on YouTube today.
The questions she was asked were mostly about Stargate Sg-1, but she also talked about a bunch of her other projects, including Caprica. She also explained why she hasn't made an appearance on Sanctuary yet. (Sanctuary's Amanda Tapping was also one of the regulars on Sg-1 and they both have a huge following from that show.)
Among the new projects that aren't listed on the IMDb, she mentions The Killing Game (the same Lifetime film with Brian Markinson that premiered last week, as it turns out) and says she also recently worked on Flicka 3 (Kacey Rohl is in that one, too).
The whole Q&A is pretty hilarious, check it out:
Let's start the weekly round-up with Grimm.
Grimm's ratings dropped a little this week, but the show still won the 18-49 demo in its timeslot, finishing ahead of CSI: NY, Fringe and Supernatural, and rising by a full frakking ratings point (1.8) after Chuck (0.8). Wake up, Chuck.
Hitfix visited the set in Portland recently and posted a lengthy report. Here is a snippet:
Sasha Roiz on how his character will develop later in the series: "I’m not a Grimm descendent, but I'm a descendent of a long line that dates back just as Grimm does and we have a bit of a history and a past, so my line is a royal line and that will slowly unfold throughout the series."Collider has a longer interview with Sasha and Reggie Lee (more at the link):
It’s nice to see your character – like the main character – has the duality. »
Laura Prepon will return to television comedy soon enough -- very soon, in fact -- but first, she's diving into the depths of drama.
Formerly the slyly funny Donna on "That '70s Show," she samples anything but amusement in "Iris Johansen's The Killing Game," a mystery-novel adaptation debuting Sunday (Oct. 30) on Lifetime Movie Network. It casts Prepon as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, who re-creates images of crime victims.
While doing so, she's taunted by someone claiming to be the person who killed her daughter 10 years earlier. The child's resting place never has been revealed, so Eve plays along, hoping to determine that site. Naomi Judd, who also worked with director Bobby Roth on the 1995 NBC miniseries "Naomi & Wynonna: Love Can Build a Bridge," co-stars.
"I've never really done anything like this before," Prepon tells Zap2it. "Everybody had such a good time that when we finished and we were at the wrap party, »
Laura Prepon has no fear of tackling roles people might have preconceptions about.
The "That '70s Show" alum is about to do that twice: as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan in "The Killing Game," a Lifetime movie adaptation of an Iris Johansen best seller debuting Monday, Oct. 31; and as a doppelganger for comedian and E! talk-show host Chelsea Handler in the midseason NBC sitcom "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea."
Prepon took a similar gamble last season by embodying novelist Richard Castle's (Nathan Fillion) crime-fighting character Nikki Heat -- or, more specifically, an actress playing her -- in an episode of ABC's Monday drama "Castle."
"There was a lot of pressure on that one," Prepon tells Zap2it. "People love that show, and before I was even going to play it, everyone had an opinion of who should play Nikki Heat. People took it very seriously, and luckily, it turned out well. »
