Polly Walker on Psych, Mike Dopud in Blue Mountain State, interviews with Scott Porter, Philip Granger and Kacey Rohl

It's the Willow clan update today, for the most part. More updates coming tomorrow.

Polly Walker guest stars in the Psych season opener, "Shawn Rescues Darth Vader," tonight at 10 pm on USA. Synopsis:
While on a mission to retrieve a stolen Darth Vader collector’s item from the British Ambassador’s son at the British Consulate Residence in Santa Barbara, Shawn finds a dead body left in one of the rooms. In order to get SBPD on the case to find her killer, Shawn tells Lassiter and Juliet that the image of a dead body at the British Consulate Residence came to him in a psychic vision. However, Shawn’s credibility as a “psychic” could be placed in jeopardy if SBPD finds out he actually witnessed the dead body in person and didn’t “divine” the image of her murder.
And at 11 pm, you can catch Mike Dopud in Blue Mountain State 3x05, "Training Day," on Spike. He tweeted yesterday that he makes an appearance in tonight's episode. Synopsis:
Thad offers to instruct Alex on how to be a local celebrity; Mary Jo tries to impress the coach’s wife.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil with Philip Granger and Alex Arsenault was recently screened in Seattle. Philip Granger was at the screening for a short Q&A. You can find a couple of behind-the-scenes photos from Tucker & Dale on his Facebook page and listen to the Q&A on The Twisted Geeks Podcast.

Vancouver Observer has an article recommending Everything and Everyone with Ryan Robbins and Sunflower Hour with Kacey Rohl and Ben Cotton as the films to see at the Vancouver Film Festival this week.

Panou tweeted that he will start shooting a TV film next week. No word on what it is yet, but you can follow him on Twitter for updates. has an excellent new interview with Scott Porter, mostly about the X-Men anime series (Oct. 21 at 11 pm, G4), but there is also a tidbit about Caprica and what would have happened in season two. (It's been a while since someone brought it up.)
Another scifi character you played was Nestor Willow on Caprica. He kicked the bucket before the show was cancelled. If neither of these things happened, where would you have liked to have seen Nestor?
The producers and I talked about that a little bit after we wrapped the first season. Nestor helped build this virtual world. And to think that he wouldn't have a second version of himself squirreled away? We would have seen Nestor in Season 2 most definitely. Once you get into it the virtual world, there's no way he doesn't exist in code in there.

For me, what I think happens with Nestor is that once he's digitally in there, he realizes the scope of what he's done and becomes a good guy. We saw bits of that, Nestor standing up to Clarice and saying, "Why do we have to kill so many people?" When you live forever in the walls of a computer, you can dwell on the fact that there's a better way to do things!

Which brings us to the video section. Here is a Hart of Dixie behind-the-scenes featurette, with Scott and his cast mates talking about the last episode:
