Comments Off on Michael Ealy Joins SECRETS & LIES Season 2

ALMOST HUMAN/THE FOLLOWING’s Michael Ealy has been tapped as the lead for SECRETS & LIES’ second season, ABC confirmed.

According to Deadline (which was first to break Ealy’s casting), Ealy will play Eric Warner, who is “smart, well-educated and hard working” and whose life is turned upside down when his wife, Kate, is murdered.

Ealy will appear opposite Juliette Lewis, the only SECRETS & LIES season 1 cast member returning.

THE FOLLOWING Exclusive Sneak Peek: Producers, Michael Ealy Tease Theo and Ryan Meeting

THE FOLLOWING: LOGO

Things are heating up for THE FOLLOWING’s newest big bad, Theo.

In the exclusive video preview of this Monday’s new hour, “Flesh & Blood,” (below) co-showrunner Alexi Hawley shared, “Episode 8 is a big moment in the hunt for Theo…and he ultimately ends up having to scramble to keep us away from him during the course of the episode.”

“He’s created this whole life that is sort of perfect,” co-showrunner Brett Mahoney added. “And that’s why he truly resents Ryan getting on to him. No one has really done this before.”

Additionally, we’ll get to see a bit of parallels between the two as they have to deal with pressures outside of the chase: Theo has to throw a party for his wife, while Ryan has to attend a dinner party with his girlfriend. But those external forces won’t compare to the real explosive moment of the hour: when Ryan and Theo have their first “meeting.”

“The episode where Ryan and Theo meet, that’s where the fireworks will begin,” Michael Ealy (Theo) teased. “It’s a smart chess match between the two.”

Check out the video for more teases, and a little glimpse at what’s to come…

THE FOLLOWING Bosses on a Ryan Hardy-Centric Season 3, Michael Ealy’s New Big Bad, and More

THE FOLLOWING: LOGO

We’re just three weeks away from the two-hour season premiere of THE FOLLOWING, and things are set to be a bit different when the show returns.

First of all, the Joe Carroll chapter of the series is over. While Carroll made it out alive (and James Purefoy’s Carroll will appear on the show)  — thanks to an alternate ending not making the final cut —  the focus of the show will shift more fully to Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy. (And Ryan will have to contend with a new baddie this season.)

There’s also been a behind-the-scenes transition in showrunners, as THE FOLLOWING creator Kevin Williamson has handed over showrunner duties to a trio of show vets: writers/executive producers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley, as well as director/executive producer Marcos Siega. (Williamson has been focused on CBS’ STALKER.)

I spoke with Mahoney and Hawley about the transition to showrunning THE FOLLOWING, “moving the center of the show,” why fans of THE FOLLOWING newbie Michael Ealy will be excited by the season, and more…

Comments Off on THE FOLLOWING Season 3: ALMOST HUMAN’s Michael Ealy Lands a Series Regular Role

almost-human-thumbFormer ALMOST HUMAN star ‎Michael Ealy is staying in the Fox family: a rep for the show has confirmed that Ealy will join THE FOLLOWING in season 3. According to Deadline, Ealy will be a series regular.

Details about Ealy’s character (including his name/first episode) are being kept on the DL for now, but according to TVLine, he’ll play a “brilliant, chameleon-like murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits.”

ALMOST HUMAN Exclusive Video: Behind-the-Scenes of ‘Skin’

November 19, 2013 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Almost Human

almost-human-featured-2

ALMOST HUMAN made its time period debut last night with “Skin,” an episode that found Kennex and Dorian dealing with sexbots that were genetically spruced up with real (human) DNA. And while sexbots are OK in 2048, stealing human DNA to make them more lifelike is so not kosher, and our team was called in to shut things down. (Man, it’s crazy to think what kind of problems we may have to deal with in the future!)

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette from “Skin,” you can get a glimpse of how they filmed the big takedown scene, with added insight from ALMOST HUMAN stars Michael Ealy (Dorian) and Michael Irby (Detective Paul), plus guest star Rowland Pidlubny (Yuri), and the show’s stunt coordinator, Scott Nicholson.

Take a look!

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

ALMOST HUMAN: Karl Urban on the Appeal of the Show, Working with Michael Ealy, and More

November 16, 2013 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Almost Human

almost-human-featured

ALMOST HUMAN star Karl Urban has spent most of the last decade of his career working on movies (he previously was Caesar on XENA and HERCULES), so it took a very special project to draw him back into the television world.

“It was obviously, firstly, having the opportunity to work with J.J. [Abrams, Urban’s STAR TREK director and ALMOST HUMAN executive producer] again, whom I absolutely adore,” Urban told me of deciding to take the role of John Kennex on the Fox series, a futuristic buddy-cop drama. “I think he’s one of the most talented artists currently working in film and television. [And ALMOST HUMAN creator,] Joel Wyman, I was a huge fan of [his work on] FRINGE, so that was a huge draw.”

“And then it was, quite simply, reading the script and getting drawn into this world and getting drawn into the character of Kennex,” he continued. “A character who is damaged goods, a character who is trying to reclaim his life; a life that was stolen from him…living in a coma for two years [after an injury sustained during an ambush], and then coming back from that, trying to pick up the pieces. For me, that’s a really interesting starting point.”

And while ALMOST HUMAN is getting the latest start of all the new network fall dramas, Urban was gratified by the response the show’s first episode got at this summer’s Comic-Con panel.

almost-human-featured-2

Fox’s new drama, ALMOST HUMAN, is being billed as a futuristic buddy-cop show — and certainly the dynamic between Karl Urban’s John Kennex and Michael Ealy’s Dorian (an android) is a key part of the series — but there are also quite a few other talented people and intriguing relationships to get invested in.

Last month, reporters hit up the Vancouver set of ALMOST HUMAN where the cast gave a bit of a rundown of what viewers can expect from the various pairings…
