ALCATRAZ Red Carpet Interviews with Sam Neill, Robert Forester, Parminder Nagra and Director Jack Bender

One of the most anticipated midseason premieres of 2012 is the J.J. Abrams produced Alcatraz, a supernatural procedural about a team of detectives who hunt and capture inmates from the infamous island prison after the convicts begin to mysteriously appear in modern day San Francisco.

To promote the show, Fox flew select journalists out to the bay area for a premiere party and screening at the prison (here’s my recap of the event). While on location, I got to talk to stars Sam Neill, Robert Forester and Parminder Nagra and Executive Producer and Director Jack Bender about their work on the show. During the interviews we discussed how the series will end, researching time travel, potential appearances by Machinegun Kelly, what it’s like to sit in a real electric chair and much, much more.  Hit the jump for the video interviews.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Generally, Collider will run only original, one-on-one interviews. However, because of delays with the red carpet, several of our interviews were done as two-on-ones to allow the talent to talk to more outlets. Also, we generally have two reporters on the red carpet: one conducting the interview and a second holding the camera. In this instance I did not have access to a cameraman so I was forced to talk to the talent while also trying to hold the camera steady. As a result, the footage can be a bit shaky at times.

Alcatraz premieres tonight on FOX.
