Cast interviews, previews, behind-the-scenes clips and new projects

A bunch of new interviews with the cast and Jane Espenson showed up in recent days. In random order:

Crazy Town has a new interview with Jane Espenson.
GJR: Are there any teasers you’d like to share of what we can expect in season one? Will there be guest stars?
JE: Yes! Guest stars! Michael Buckley and Nathan Fillion! Michael is a huge YouTube star, and Nathan is Nathan Fillion! Also, make sure you keep watching to see Beau, the adorable dog who appears in later episodes!

GJR: What does the future hold for Husbands? Are there plans for a season two?
JE: There is actually some written material for season two, but we haven't yet talked to anyone about supporting the making of more episodes. That's the next step! If we can point to a huge number of views, we will have a better chance of making an argument that there is an audience for this show.
^ Episode three has been posted on

Fringe 4x02, "One Night in October," has been getting pretty good early reviews. Here is what Televisionary says (careful, spoilers):

john pyper ferguson,fringe
"But it's the second episode of the season ("One Night in October") that brilliantly showcases what Fringe is capable of: emotionally resonant stories with sci-fi trappings that are intensely character-driven explorations of the human heart. This is very much the case with the largely Over There-set installment which finds the Fringe Division attempting to entrap a vicious serial killer (John Pyper-Ferguson, in a fantastic and gripping dual role) whose methods for spreading death are rather unique, yet also connect to the wider philosophical issues at play here. Are we the sum of our experiences? Do our choices define us? Can we remember when those memories are cruelly ripped away from us?"

Syfy has also posted the teaser for the Warehouse 13 two-hour season finale, which airs on October 3. Sasha Roiz is definitely in it:
Pete and Myka investigate the theft of a top-secret file from the warehouse, which brings them to a high school in Wyoming, where H.G. Wells is working as a teacher named Emily Lake.

Guest stars include Kate Mulgrew, Jaime Murray, Sasha Roiz, Aaron Ashmore and Anthony Michael Hall.

Spoiler TV has the stills. Here is one with Sasha:

Two new interviews with Patton Oswalt showed up at and in the last couple of days. Here is a snippet from Laugh Spin:
You recorded Finest Hour in front of a sold out crowd of almost 2,500 people. What’s your process like preparing for a big special like that?
Whatever the last special was I ditch all that material and start doing smaller sets and building up a new hour. Because I was so busy doing other things, because I had a kid, it took me longer. It took me a year and a half to get the new hour. But I steadily just kept going onstage and doing it. I’m trying to get beyond processes. The thing I do is a couple nights a week I just get onstage no matter what.

Season two of The Haunting Hour will premiere on October 1 on The Hub network. Genevieve Buechner, Richard Harmon and Kacey Rohl will make appearances at some point.

Aleks Paunovic's site reports that grandpa Adama has recently finished work (motion capture and voice acting) on Ride to Hell and is working on a new project called Worst House Guest in the World. Meanwhile, Vancouver's Pacific Theatre has announced the dates for his new play, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea: January 20 - February 4, 2012. Here is the synopsis:
In a rundown bar in the Bronx, two strangers meet at the end of their ropes. Haunted by the past and trapped in the violence of the present, Danny and Roberta begin the ruthless act of revealing themselves – a brutal exposure that threatens to change everything. Explosively funny and surprisingly tender, a deeply affecting study of alienation and the redemptive power of love.
