At Comic-Con last week, I was able to participate in roundtable interviews with Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and new series regular Amy Acker for Person of Interest season three. Chapman talked about Fusco’s role in the show and where he was at the end of season two, Shahi talked about what it’s like to do stunt scenes and a possible all ladies team up episode, and Acker discussed Root’s expanded role, and so much more. Hit the jump to watch the interviews.
Having just started production on their third season this last week, the producers and cast of Warner Bros’ Person of Interest took the time out of what is sure to be an action-packed season to present a panel at this year’s Comic Con. The series is one of TV’s most watched dramas, but in light of the recent leak about the NSA project Prism, the title sequence’s opening line “You are being watched,” might have a completely new meaning this season.
Executive Producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman were joined by stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and, along with the announcement that she is now also a series regular, Amy Acker. During the panel they discussed how the leak of NSA’s Prism might affect the show, what it’s how the character’s motivations have changed since the first season, and what the future might have in store for The Machine. Read more after the jump.
Person of Interest is one of the biggest hits to premiere last year. The show centers the partnership between John Reese (Jim Caviezel), an ex-CIA operative, and the mysterious, millionaire computer engineer Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) who develops a machine that can predict crimes. After a cliffhanger season finale, the second season will premiere September 27th on CBS. We sat down with series creator/producer/writer Jonathan Nolan, series writer Greg Plageman and cast members Caviezel, Emerson, Taraji P. Henson, and Kevin Chapman to discuss where the new season picks up, the challenges of working on TV, and living in a society where all your information is public. Hit the jump for highlights from the interviews and our full interview with Jonathan Nolan.
