Eddie McClintock & Saul Rubinek Celebrate A Warehouse 13 Christmas


Last week we here at SciFiPulse were lucky enough to attend a very special Christmas Party, which was in the form of a conference call with Warehouse 13 stars Eddie McClintock and Saul Rubinek who were on hand to answer questions about tomorrows Warehouse 13 Christmas special.

It’s no secret that Eddie McClintock and Saul Rubinek are two of the hardest working actors, and they get around a fair bit too. Eddie McClintock was in Bulgaria during this call doing some work on a Syfy Channel movie called Boogeyman. Which was something Eddie seemed somewhat proud off judging by the amount of plugs he got in for the project during the course of the conference call…

When asked about the Christmas episode, and what their favorite things were about doing it. McClintock described it as being what they have always tried to do with the series, and a fun exchange started between the two actors as a result of this.

Eddie McClintock: I think the Christmas episode is it’s right in line with what we’ve always tried to do with the Warehouse 13 episodes. They’re a lot of fun and there’s some tense moments but again at its heart it’s a nice family show about this family of people that have come together at this strange warehouse out in South Dakota and I think it just stays true to the series and it’s fun.

And Paul Blackthorne who is our guest star does an amazing job and I guess my favorite part was when the nutcracker…

Saul Rubinek: I could’ve told you that that was his favorite part just because he gets to say the word nutcracker.

Eddie McClintock: And I get to say nuts.

Saul Rubinek: Yeah. I could’ve told you that. I have three favorite things that happened to me.

Eddie McClintock: That’s news.

Saul Rubinek: Yeah you’ve talked long enough. I have three favorite things. One is that I got to work with Judd Hirsch who I’d never met but had been such a fan of for so many years and we’d never even meet before, and that was a huge thrill, he’s a wonderful performer, great actor and was just a pleasure to have him on the show, and they had to age him up a little bit to make him old enough to be my dad, but that was a joy.

And the second thing was that for the first time Jack Kenny, our head writer and show runner directed an episode and he was wonderful to work with and it was great to have him as the director of the show, and he wrote the script as well, so that was a pleasure, a real pleasure.

And then I got to perform this little nocturne, or at least part of it, that I had been writing myself on the piano, which took the place of the nocturne that Artie has been working on for years that his father is so happy that he finished it. So I got to do that, so those were three great things for me...

Eureka: Colin Ferguson & Jordan Hinson Interview


The actors who play Sheriff Jack Carter and his daughter Zoe talk season four, season five, the Christmas episode and Twitter-mania

... Eureka set the tone for a whole bunch of other Syfy shows. Did you feel like the show was pioneering for the network?

Colin: “When the network set out to create Eureka, they wanted no space, no aliens. They wanted something more mainstream, a version of sci-fi that would appeal to more people. So we were the guinea pig on that, and we definitely took it on the teeth on a couple of fronts, as we all tried to find out what that was going to be. ‘Oh, it’s going to be darker. Oh no, it’s going to be more comedic.”

Jordan: “It took a long time to find out what the tone of it was going to be. It was a process to be sure. And I don’t think we really found it until the second season.”

Colin: “Even through the first year, all the directors that come on to do the show, they would be told outright in the tonal meeting, ‘This is not a comedy, so get that out of your head.’ That was the first thing they were told.”

Q&A Interview with Emily Deschanel of BONES


TV Tango recently participated in a conference call with Emily Deschanel of BONES. She dished about the Brennan-Booth-Hannah triangle, future storylines, and Thursday's episode. Plus, she talked about her upcoming directorial debut. BONES currently airs Thursdays at 8pm ET on FOX.

... Question: In the next episode ["The Doctor in the Photo," airing Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010 at 8PM on FOX] Brennan feels a strong connection to the victim. How did it feel?

Emily Deschanel: "It's hard because you have to go through all of the emtions that she's going through. At the same time it's refreshing because it's a very different episode than most episodes of the show. It's kind of strange. It's a different episode. It's one of my favorite scripts. I haven't seen the final cut yet, but hopefully it's one of my favorite episodes. It's very unique.

It's very personal to Brennan. She's facing her own mortality and also looking at her life, seeing what she would be leaving behind when she dies. You don't see that side of Brennan very often. She becomes very vulnerable trying to solve this case.

There is a woman who is killed and she's a doctor. When they started listing the qualities of this person, Brennan thinks they sound very familiar -- whether they're physical or personal qualities. And then even looking at the photograph of the person who died, it looks like Brennan when she looks at it. It's from Brennan's perspective, this episode. It's very interesting, but very terrifying for Brennan. Confusing.

Then she's visited by a night watchman, who we're not really sure if he exists or not in real life. Enrico Colantoni plays that part, who I've always loved as an actor; so it was fun to work with him.

It was definitely hard to go through that. I was in every single scene of this episode. There were absolutely no breaks whatsoever..."

Fitness tips from a beautiful TV show starlet

By CARY CASTAGNA, Edmonton Sun

Last Updated: December 6, 2010


Sci-fi starlet Julia Benson has a perfect workout partner. Almost.

He’s always ready to exercise and he never complains during particularly grueling training sessions.

But he only does cardio.

He is, of course, a 3½-year-old chocolate lab.

“He definitely keeps me active,” the Winnipeg-born actress says in a phone interview from her Vancouver home.

“We run a lot, which is what I love doing the most for exercise. We’ll go down and run at the beach (Spanish Banks). Or we’ll do some hikes. There’s tons of amazing trails around here.”

Her cardio partner’s name is Bauer.

As in the company that makes hockey gear?

“Yeah … or Jack Bauer from 24,” she laughs.

Most days, their outdoor treks last about 45 minutes.

Benson, aka Lt. Vanessa James on science fiction TV show Stargate Universe, also likes to go inline skating in the summer “when it’s not raining in Vancouver...”
