This Needs to Stop blog has a new interview with Leah Gibson. Snippet below, follow the link for the rest.

TNTs: Was Doctor Manhattan’s blue “member” distracting in The Watchmen?

Leah: Incredibly. I had my hands up on guard between takes the entire time.

TNTs: What was the first celeb encounter you’ve had since being in the business that left you completely star struck?

Leah: Juliette Lewis. When I was at the Toronto Film Fest in the fall, I walked right into a personal photo shoot she was having. We locked eyes for a few moments and I could feel in my heart it was love at first sight. I’m sure she’s still thinking about me with just as much affection. Juliette I love you.

TNTs: Who would you love to work with in the future?

Leah: I am slightly obsessed with Meryl Streep. With Susan Sarandon. With Debra Messing. And Juliette, of course. -- Keep reading

You can also catch Leah in He Loves Me, a TV film that premieres tonight on Lifetime (9 pm ET). Jill Teed (Col. Patel) also appears in it. Daemon's TV has the promotional pics and teaser.

Spacecast has an interview with Ryan Robbins, mostly about Riese:

“It has elements of mystery and discovery. It’s a fairy tale for grown-ups. It’s an underdog story, it’s a story about trying to get somebody back to where they rightfully belong and it’s a journey and I really think that people respond to (that),” says Robbins.

Robbins plays Rand, the leader of the Resistance, who is trying to stop the hostile takeover of Eleysia and surrounding areas.

“It was ultimately a no-brainer that I wanted to do this project. The character really drew me in and what I had seen of the show, I’d never seen anything like it. I knew people who saw it would respond to it, I just didn’t realize how many people.”

The Daily Blam has the first pic of Ryan in Mortal Kombat. There are also a couple of clips with him and Chris Heyerdahl talking about Sanctuary at the Armageddon Expo at Multipleverses. And the first stills from the next new episode of the show, "Pax Romana," with Polly Walker returning, are at Spoiler TV.
