Early Preview: SyFy's '12 Monkeys'

Early Preview: Aaron Stanford Mesmerizes In SyFy's '12 Monkeys'
Aaron Stanford electrifies in SyFy's reboot of Bruce Willis' 1995 action flick, '12 Monkeys.' It is rare in a pilot for an actor to hit a character so completely and so perfectly. However, in '12 Monkeys,' Aaron amazingly hits every single possible nuance, note and facet of his character from start to finish. He was great as nerdy hacker Birkhoff in 'Nikita,' but in '12 Monkeys,' he's mesmerizing. During New York Comic Con, I caught a sneak preview of the pilot episode.

At the basic level, '12 Monkeys' follows a post-apocalyptic earth in the year 2043. Desperate to avoid a population-reduc...

'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant

Interview: 'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant
Everytime I interview the 'Robot Chicken' cast, I wonder if there's ever anything new I can ask them and if there's anything new they can do, idea wise. Considering they've desecrated almost everything in our 80s childhood from Disney to Nancy Drew to Hasbro since 2005, is there REALLY anything else they can mock, satirize or defecate upon? According to 'Robot Chicken' writer, Breckin Myer, yes. Yes, there is. As long as TV continues to release new shows, companies release new toys and studios release new films like 'Guardians of the Galaxy' they will always, ALWAYS have new stuff. So, eff ...

TNT's 'The Librarians' Is Your Next Guilty Pleasure!

November 5th, 2014 8:08pm EST
TNT - The Librarians
I am a major fan of the original made-for-TV movie series, 'The Librarian' including a post-'ER' Noah Wyle's surprising involvement and portrayal of the multi-degree nerdy slacker, Flynn. The 'Librarians' is a guilty pleasure, but it's a full-hearted pleasure. So, when I heard TNT planned on turning it into a series, OF COURSE I wanted to interview the cast at NYCC.

About the Show
The 'Librarians,' produced by Dean Devlin ('Leverage') and John Rogers ('Transformers'), surrounds an organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Library dedicated to protecting the world from mystical artifacts...

Interview: SyFy's 'Bitten' Cast Bites Into the Big Apple

SyFy's 'Bitten' Cast Bites Into the Big Apple
Interviewing the cast of SyFy's 'Bitten' was one of my New York Comic Con highlights. I loved Kelley Armstrong's original novel 'Bitten,' which the TV show surrounds. The first season surrounds fledgling werewolf Elena (Laura Vandervoort) who avoids both the pack that 'raised' her and her longtime pack lover, Clay (Greyston Holt). Although bitten a decade ago, Elena prefers a human existence with her human lover, Philip, until a series of murders near her pack's home calls her back. The rest of the season features Elena's relationships with her fellow pack members including confidant Logan ...

Interviewing 'I Am Santa Claus's' Mick Foley
I leapt for joy when the opportunity to interview WWE wrestler and subject of Tommy Avallone's documentary "I Am Santa Claus" arrived. "I Am Santa Claus" is the latest film underneath the "Morgan Spurlock Presents" label. It looks at the lives of five Department Store Santas the other 364 days of the year. Its primary subjects include crusty Santa Russell, Bear-ish Santa Jim, Christmas enthusiast Mick Foley, feuding Santa Nicholas (president of the Order of Real Bearded Santas), and singer Santa Bob.

Don't let the tag line "Whose lap is your child sitting on" fool you. The documentary was ...

Comic-Con 2014: Jenna Busch Unites Female Fans With Legion Of Le

We sat down with Jenna at Comic-Con to learn more about Legion of Leia.

'Power Rangers' Star Jason David Frank On 20 Years Of Morphin'
For those of us that grew up in the 1990's, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a big deal. Many of us were fans of or even wanted to be the Green (later White) Ranger, as played by actor and mixed martial artist Jason David Frank. Jason has now been a part of the Power Rangers franchise for more than 20 years, and during San Diego Comic-Con he sat down with us for a chat about the longevity of his Ranger role.

"When I first booked Power Rangers, the [term] Power Ranger really, nobody really knew what that was," he reflected. "And I was only hired for a certain amount of episodes and I just d...

Blake Neely Takes Us Inside Composing For 'Arrow' And 'The Flash
If you love Arrow or you're getting excited for The Flash, you've got one person to thank for the awesome music: composer Blake Neely. Blake sat down with us for San Diego Comic-Con to talk about scoring superheroes for The CW and his long working relationship with executive producer Greg Berlanti.

"We've been at it for twelve years now. This is a really, really long time," Blake said of his collaboration with Berlanti. "I met him in 2002. He was looking for someone to score his first show, Everwood. We met and I sent him a demo and he hired me. We have such a shorthand and such a trust. W...
