Here is another video interview from the FX Show 2008 in Florida. This time we talked to Greg Grunberg who stars as Matt Parkman on NBC’s Heroes. Greg goes into detail about the last episode of Season 2 right before the break and the writers strike.
Please be advised that the following video contain spoilers for the upcoming season.
“Battlestar Galactica” fans are eagerly awaiting the next season of the acclaimed series, set to begin airing in January. Among many of the shocking revelations in the season 3 finale perhaps the most surprising was the revelation of the identity of four of the final five Cylons and the return, seemingly from the dead, of Kara Thrace with an important message for the now civilian Lee Adama.
Season four, hailed as the final season, promises lots of twists and turns and Labor Day weekend, we caught up with two of the series’ stars at Dragon Con in Atlanta. Jamie Bamber, who plays Captain Lee “Apollo” Adama and Aaron Douglas, “Chief” Galen Tyrol, both attended the convention, discussing the show in panels and signing autographs for fans. The two actors were gracious enough to consent to an interview with White Powdered Doughnuts and share some of their insight into season four and their characters. While Jamie was extremely friendly, he was tight-lipped about the goings-on for the next season. Aaron, on the other hand, was more than happy to share some interesting tidbits for the upcoming episodes.
A key figure in the world of webcomics, Sean McGuinness has been writing and illustrating Twisted Kaiju Theater before most of us knew what a webcomic was. With six and a half years and one thousand plus episodes under it’s belt Twisted Kaiju Theater can comfortably claim the title of the first, longest-running, photo-webcomic of all time. Sean has used his love for Kaiju (Japanese word for giant monster) toy collecting, and his sense of humor to create internet magic. Twisted Kaiju Theater’s brand of comedy can be sometimes crass or irreverent, but it is always hilariously funny. It is what makes Twisted Kaiju Theater so damn funny and puts it right up there with the likes of Family Guy. It is all the things you know are funny but were afraid to say and laugh about. If you haven’t heard of Sean (Shin-Goji) McGuinness or Twisted Kaiju Theater you really don’t know what you are missing. I myself have been a long time fan of the webcomic and have watched Sean’s mad Photoshoping and digital camera skills develop over the years. You can imagine my utter amazement when Sean emailed me this past week when he saw White Powdered Doughnuts’ profile on ComicSpace.com. He noticed that our site was seriously lacking in the webcomic department (which it is) and wanted to help us out by letting us do a story about Twisted Kaiju Theater. To which I replied “Sweet Monkey Jesus” yes! In fact I asked him for an interview and he said yes. I could hardly believe it. It actually was somewhat of an honor. Made even better by the fact that Sean created a custom episode of Twisted Kaiju Theater for us. All I can say is this was a good week for us at White Powdered Doughnuts. A very good week.
ComicSpace.com has been online for nearly a week, but already it has attracted thousands of users. Users ranging from your average onlinecomics fan to big-names like Warren Ellis, Brian Wood, Top Cow Entertainment, and Dave Gibbons just to name a few. Once we heard about it over here at White Powdered Doughnuts we signed up right away to see what it was all about. We were very impressed with what we saw. As of this writing ComicSpace.com looks like it is on it’s way to becoming an incredible success and most of the features aren’t even live yet. Someone finally had the ingenuity and resources to bring the wonders of social networking to the onlinecomics masses. I private messaged Josh Roberts the man behind ComicSpace.com and OnlineComics.net to find out a little more about him and ComicSpace.com. He graciously granted us this interview. Read more…
Whether you’ve seen him play Jayne Cobb in Joss Whedon’s “Firefly”, Animal Mother in “Full Metal Jacket”, Ricky Linderman in “My Bodyguard” or seen him in one of the 80+ roles he’s played over the last 25 years, you know who Adam Baldwin is. Having been a fan of his for many years, I jumped at the chance to attend Adventure Con in Knoxville, Tennessee this past weekend to finally meet Adam in person. I have to admit I was nervous and worried about making a fool of myself because he is my favorite actor, but those fears were quickly alleviated as Adam is not only more unbelievably handsome in person, but also one of the most down-to-earth and funniest people I have ever met. He immediately put me at ease and my two friends, CSteinme and Thymewarp, who had already met him before, were quick to tell me “I told you so”.
At a muscular 6’4, Adam can seem quite imposing and is probably one of the reasons why he has been cast in many tough-guy roles, but his real-life persona reveals a heart of gold. He was friendly and kind to every fan that stood in the long lines to get his autograph and after hearing reports from the staff of the convention, he was just as nice to them and didn’t exhibit any of the star ego associated with too many of today’s celebrities. After a long day of signing autographs and greeting fans, he graciously sat down with us for a few beers and a candid interview.
