Some end-of-the-week casting notes for your enjoyment. Here they are in brief:
Hit the jump for more on each film.
The other week I was on the set of ABC’s FlashForward and was able to speak with executive producer/show runner Jessika Borsiczky. While I already posted my interviews with the stars of the show and they came out great (Dominic Monaghan, Joseph Fiennes and Sonya Walger), if you want to find out what’s really going to happen on FlashForward, you’ve got to go to the producer/show runner. Thankfully, she was more than happy to talk about what’s coming up this season and after the jump you can watch what she had to say. As always, I’ve listed all the questions and some of the answers before the interview.
If you’re a fan of ABC’s FlashForward, you’re about to be very happy. That’s because the show is finally coming back with a two hour episode tomorrow night and I’ve got a few on set interviews with the cast to post to help promote the show. The other day I posted my interview with Dominic Monaghan, and now I’ve got Joseph Fiennes and Sonya Walger.
On FlashForward, Joseph Fiennes and Sonya Walger play a married couple going through some problems as a result of what each of them saw in their flashforward. During the interviews, they each talked about what is coming up for their characters and what making the show is really like. Hit the jump to see what they had to say:
Whenever normal people hear the phrase “science fiction,” they run for the hills and never look back. I am not one of those people, so it was with great pleasure that I accepted an invitation to see an advanced screening of the pilot for ABC’s new series FlashForward at the Arclight in Hollywood, followed by a Q & A with the producers and much of the cast.
Like the brilliant Lost and Battlestar Galactica before it, FlashForward is not your typical sci-fi and it should appeal to geeks and normal’s alike. The makers of this show understand that it’s human drama and not cool visuals that make for compelling science fiction. Set your phasers on fun and read more after the jump!
Flash Forward, the new sci-fi show for ABC, premiered the opening fifteen minutes at Comic Con, and the cast and crew were there to talk about it.
Produced and co-written by David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins fame) and Marc Guggenheim (writer for Marvel Comics and the upcoming Green Lantern movie) the show is a science fiction story about what happens when everyone in the world suddenly blacks out and has visions of events six months in their future. It stars Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, and Dominic Monaghan. Read a description of the footage, plus the thoughts of the creators, after the jump.
