Comments Off on SLEEPY HOLLOW: John Noble Previews the ‘Astonishingly Good’ Season Finale

It’s only appropriate that after a season of absolute insanity, SLEEPY HOLLOW would conclude with an absolutely crazy-good season finale…and it does. At the risk of sounding like I’m overselling it, this is absolutely something you’re going to want to watch tonight and not have spoiled for you.

But in the meantime, we still have a little bit of time before the SLEEPY HOLLOW finale airs. So to get a proper tease of what’s going down, I spoke with John Noble (Henry) about his time on the show so far, the very big season finale, and more…

It’s no secret I watch a lot of TV. Heck, I watch more TV than I should probably ever admit. But there is a lot, lot, lot of good stuff on television — and now, increasingly, through other mediums like Netflix, Amazon, etc. It’s a good time to love quality programming.

As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to note a few of the shows that stood out to me over the past 12 months. First up, we have the top episodes. For me, they were the most enjoyable as a television fan. You may agree with some, all, or none. You may be like me and have your top episodes change 20 times. (Only a slight exaggeration, but I easily could have singled out 25 great episodes this season. Or 50.)

So, these are the 13 hours of television that stuck out to me the most this past year, in alphabetical order of series…

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: J.H. Wyman on Taking a Hopeful Look at the Future

ALMOST HUMAN premieres tonight, and the series takes us 35 years in the future — crime has skyrocketed, and to help combat it, humans have mandatory orders to work with android partners.

And yet, ALMOST HUMAN creator J.H. Wyman (who also showran FRINGE for multiple seasons) is hopeful about the future.

When I spoke with Wyman about his new show, I was curious about his thoughts about what set it apart from the other procedurals or pieces of futuristic fiction out there…and he had a very thoughtful answer for me:

J.J. Abrams on What Sets ALMOST HUMAN Apart from the Other Bad Robot Shows

November 7, 2013 by  
Filed under Almost Human

J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company has been behind some of the best (and nerdiest) shows of the past decade and a half (FELICITY, ALIAS, LOST, FRINGE are a few of the former shows, while PERSON OF INTEREST and REVOLUTION are currently on the air), and on Sunday, November 17th, Fox will debut the Bad Robot latest show: ALMOST HUMAN, a futuristic cop drama created by former FRINGE boss Joel Wyman.

Given the wide array of shows Bad Robot has produced, I asked Abrams during a conference call to promote ALMOST HUMAN what he felt set this show apart from all the other ones he’s had a hand in before.

SLEEPY HOLLOW: John Noble Previews His New Character, Henry Parrish

sleepy-hollow-john-noble-featured

Since FRINGE went off the air earlier this year, John Noble has been largely MIA from our television screens (aside from a brief THE GOOD WIFE guest spot), but that will soon change: his first SLEEPY HOLLOW episode airs this Monday!

“I remember talking talking with [SLEEPY HOLLOW/FRINGE co-creators] Alex [Kurtzman] and Roberto [Orci] about [SLEEPY HOLLOW] last year: they came up [to Vancouver] for the 100th episode party for FRINGE,” Noble told reporters on a conference call earlier today. “And they actually said to me, ‘Would you come and do a guest role in the pilot?’ And we talked it through, but nothing happened. But as a result, I had an interest in the show and that they were doing it…[and when it came time for this role] I got a call through my management first, and then Alex contacted me, and we took it from there.”

In Monday’s episode, “The Sin Eater,” Noble’s character, Henry Parrish — who will appear in four episodes in the show’s first season and Noble said he expects to back for “quite a lot” of the already-ordered second season — enters the SLEEPY HOLLOW world reluctantly.

There’s a lot of crazy things going down on SLEEPY HOLLOW…and as our luck would have it, things might be getting even more insane.

I sat down with SLEEPY HOLLOW star Orlando Jones (Irving) to get his thoughts on what it would take for his character to believe Ichabod’s tale, his tease for the insanity to come, plus his thoughts on working with upcoming guest star/former FRINGE star John Noble

SLEEPY HOLLOW: FRINGE’s John Noble to Recur

September 20, 2013 by  
Filed under Sleepy Hollow

Is it too early to call this the guest casting of the season? Fox has announced that former FRINGE star John Noble has landed a recurring role on the freshman drama SLEEPY HOLLOW.

According to the network, Noble will play Henry Parrish, “a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help the series’ protagonist, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).”

The role marks a reunion between Noble and SLEEPY HOLLOW/FRINGE co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

I mean, is this the best news or what?!

SLEEPY HOLLOW airs Mondays at 9 PM on Fox.

ALMOST HUMAN: J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman on Finding the Right Balance for Mythology Versus Procedural Elements

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman on Finding the Right Balance for Mythology Versus Procedural Elements

When you see the names of former FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman and J.J. Abrams (the man behind ALIAS, FRINGE, and LOST…not to mention the director of the recent STAR TREK reboots and the upcoming STAR WARS sequels) associated with the new Fox series, ALMOST HUMAN (a crime-drama set 35 years in the future where human cops are partnered with human-like androids), it’s easy to assume the series will be another FRINGE-like drama that draws heavily on serialized storylines.

But when both men sat down with reporters earlier this week at Abrams’ Bad Robot production offices, they reiterated that this show isn’t quite as similar to FRINGE as you might think.

THE GOOD WIFE: John Noble to Return

Comments Off on THE GOOD WIFE: John Noble to Return

Former FRINGE star John Noble is set to make a return to THE GOOD WIFE this season, TVGuide.com is reporting.

The casting is curious, because Noble’s first appearance on the show last season featured him entirely in flashbacks — as Alicia reflected on her relationship with Matthew (Noble) after his murder. But since we learned Matthew was very litigious, perhaps another former case will come back into Alicia’s life?

THE GOOD WIFE returns Sunday, September 29th at 9 PM on CBS.

It’s been more than five months since FRINGE ended, but much of the fanbase is still mourning the unique series.

When I caught up with Lance Reddick at last month’s Saturn Awards — which he also hosted! — we spoke about the enduring fanbase, what he wishes he had been able to do as Broyles, and what’s coming up next for him…

FRINGE star Anna Torv (Olivia) has taken a little bit of a break in the five months since her show ended its run on Fox, but she did make an appearance at last week’s Saturn Awards — where a glowing Torv just happened to pick up her fourth consecutive award for Best Actress.

After Torv accepted the honor, I spoke with her about what being recognized for her work on FRINGE means to her, about a certain cut finale scene, and more…
