For my final interview from this year’s Saturn Awards, I saved one for all you fans of Lost. That’s because hanging out backstage after the show was Lost co-creator Carlton Cuse and co-executive producer and writer Adam Horowitz. Even though they had been talking for awhile and I missed out on some of the interview, I did manage to ask if the big Lost DVD/Blu-ray box set arriving next month is really the final one and I also asked why wasn’t writer Bryan K. Vaughn involved in the final season. It’s been a big mystery among the fans. I also asked the question everyone has been wondering: is it too soon to ask Cuse and Damon Lindelof to do another TV show!
Finally, in case you weren’t aware, on the big DVD/Blu-ray box set is a 12 minute coda to the series. Cuse talks about what you can expect. If you’re a fan of Lost, this is a must watch interview. Hit the jump to check it out and I really hope you’ve enjoyed all the video interviews I managed to land at this year’s Saturn Awards.
One of the best shows on television is AMC’s Breaking Bad. While I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz about the show that stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Betsy Brandt and RJ Mitte…let me say it again: Breaking Bad is truly amazing television and if you haven’t gotten the chance to watch it, buy the DVDs and catch up. You will not be sorry.
Anyway, at this year’s Saturn Awards, I was able to speak with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul and we talked about this past season and what the future holds. The big news is while production usually begins in August, Gilligan reveals the show doesn’t start filming until January as AMC is moving the show to the summer. What that means is…it’s going to be a long hiatus. We also talked about how long the show might be on the air, does he know where next season is going, and a lot more.

If you’ve been reading Collider for any length of time, you know we’re all huge fans of NBC’s Chuck. While getting any show on the air is hard, getting more than one season is even tougher. That’s why I’m beyond excited that Chuck is coming back for a 4th season this fall. And it’s not just because Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez say “Collider” 10 times during the interview you’re about to watch. It’s because both Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez are awesome together on screen and they’re both extremely grounded and two of the nicest people I’ve ever had the chance to interview. Also, they both waited around at last week’s Saturn Awards until Guillermo Del Toro was done doing interviews so they could get their picture taken with him. How many actors would have done that?
Anyway, during my backstage interview with Levi and Gomez, they talked about last season and the way things changed on the show. They also talked about the upcoming season, Comic-Con, will they change the Tron poster in Chuck’s bedroom to a Tron: Legacy poster, how disappointed they are that GDT isn’t doing The Hobbit, what did they see and love about this year’s E3 (they’re both gamers), and a lot more. If you’re a fan of Chuck, I promise you’ll love the interview. Hit the jump to take a look:
If you enjoyed watching HBO’s The Pacific, you’re going to like the red carpet video interview I did with Jon Seda at last week’s 2010 Saturn Awards. That’s because we spent most of the time talking about what it was like making the show and did he feel like they had to one up Band of Brothers. We also talked about how he got cast in Tom Hanks next movie Larry Crown and who he plays. Hit the jump to take a look:
If you watched Lost, you know Mark Pellegrino played a major part of the show as Jacob. But if you never got into one of the best shows to ever air on television (yeah, I still feel that way after the finale and final season), you might still recognize Pellegrino as he’s made appearances on some of TV’s biggest shows. Take a look at his IMDb profile. You’ll see what I mean.
Anyway, as you might imagine, I spent the entire time on the red carpet at last week’s Saturn Awards talking about Lost and his thoughts on the show and the finale. We also talked about what he has coming up and how has his career possible changed since being on the show. Hit the jump to take a look:
Before getting started on my red carpet interview with Malcolm McDowell….a few words. While the Saturn Awards took place over a week ago, this past week has been a whirlwind of activity as I’ve been flying around the United States for reasons that will become clear down the road. This is the reason I’m not done posting all my red carpet interviews. Saying that, I’m spending today editing, so expect a lot more interviews as the day progresses. The good news about waiting is…it’s July 4th and news is very slow.
At any rate, when I saw Malcolm McDowell walking down the red carpet, I knew I’d want to speak with him. After all, as someone who has been in over 150 different films and TV shows and worked with some of the biggest filmmakers, McDowell is filled with stories. But the problem with any red carpet is you’re always rushed. Also, I don’t know how cool he would have been spending 5 minutes talking about A Clockwork Orange. Since he’s starring in a bunch of upcoming movies like Easy A, Barry Munday, Pound of Flesh, Suing the Devil, and a few others, we spent the majority of our time talking about his future projects.

The Saturn Awards honor genre movies, particularly in the sci-fi and fantasy genre. So it’s no surprise that James Cameron’s Avatar cleaned up at last night’s ceremony. The Oscar-winning film nabbed ten awards including “Best Science Fiction Film”, swept the film acting categories, and three trophies for James Cameron (Best Director, The Visionary Award, and *giggle* Best Writer).
The awards in the TV category were much better. Josh Holloway won “Best Actor”, Aaron Paul won “Best Supporting Actor”, Breaking Bad won best Syndicated/Cable series, and Lost won Best Television Series, although I’ll presume that was for the show as a whole rather than the disappointing last season. Hit the jump for a full list of the winners.
