The Province talked to Ben Cotton about Blood & Chrome. Here is a snippet:
Cotton read for several roles, but the one that stuck with him was one of the two lead roles in the new show, an officer who bonds with the young fighter pilot.
“I realized at about Christmas time that I was still thinking about this guy, this character,” he says. “Usually, even when I like a role, I audition, I walk out of the room and it’s gone, unless I need to do the job. But I found this guy was really intriguing. Something just stuck with me, it made me pick up different books to explore the psychology of the thing.”
Last minute update: Battlestarwiki tweets that Mike Dopud will also be in Blood & Chrome, but no word yet on what character he will play.
Ben Cotton will be back on Hellcats tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9 pm on the CW. So will Teryl Rothery, Aaron Douglas and (maybe) Ryan Kennedy. Daemon's TV has the press release and photos. Here is the teaser, with Teryl Rothery:
