Reddit AMA – Aaron Douglas (October 13, 2017) Transcript

Below is a transcript of Aaron’s REDDIT AMA from yesterday morning (October 13). It was only meant to go for an hour but he ended up answering 219 questions over 4 hours. I have only included the questions that Aaron answered and they are posted in the order that Aaron answered them in.

 

I’m Aaron Douglas, actor and Chief from Battlestar Galactica. AMA!

I’ve never done one of these before but Tricia and Katee told me I HAD to and you never want to piss off those two…Loooooove you girls…..
A lot of you will know me from roles other than Chief, and I’m happy to talk about those too. Ask me anything!
My proof: https://twitter.com/theaarondouglas/status/918868171020558336

EDIT: That was great, everyone. Thank you for being 99.999997% dick free. Gotta run to an event now but hope to do another AMA soon. So Say We All.


mistersavage: Hey what was the trait of Chief’s personality that taught you the most about yourself?

theaarondouglas: My gods man!! It’s 9 am… gotta ease a brother into this… ;-) I love the passion of the Chief and understanding when and where to direct it. Chief and I are actually quite similar, other than the fictional part. The further I am from the show the more I realized what I learned from the writing, particularly the writing for Chief. It’s like many of these writers knew me better that I did myself. That and Chief allowed me to meet some very cool people. Friendships I cherish to this day. Thanks Mr. Savage


-Untitled-: What’s your all-time favorite BSG episode and why?

theaarondouglas: Apparently it aired on the Syfy marathon last night… or maybe tonight. Flight of the Phoenix. We shot it in chronological order and the director, Michael Nankin, took me aside before the shoot and went through his thoughts about the ep, character, etc. It was an amazing experience. And then to finally have a scene with Mary…… The BEST!


in-a-darkened-room: Hi!!! Firstly I have to say that I’ve never felt so much sympathy for a fictional character as I felt for the Chief. Something about your acting tricked some part of my brain into believing he’s a real person I think, so well done! Okay, questions: What did you think of the BSG storylines about the gods, prophecies, and long-lost temples? And if the Chief ever got lonely in prehistoric Scotland, do you think he’d have tried to form a meaningful friendship with the bears? Thank you!

theaarondouglas: I loved the way Ron merged the faiths, the myths, etc into the story. I believe it helped our audience identify a lot more with the story and the show. Chief loves all animals but as many of you know… In the wild only a Bear can truly love a Bear…..


PM_me_ur_swimsuit: What’s the most challenging role you had? Are there any you’re bummed you missed out on?

theaarondouglas: I’d say Chief was the most challenging. There was so much emotion both on and off screen for me, especially at that time in my life. I’ve had a lot of roles I’ve missed out on that I wish I had gotten but then I wouldn’t have the career I do now. If I don’t get something I know it’s because something else is meant for me.


Jericho_the_Red: Galactacon in Seattle the other year was a bust, but it was great to see you at the impromptu gathering at the bar in downtown Seattle. How was that experience?

theaarondouglas: There is NOTHING better than a #FindChief event. We need more of them.


princepsdinus: Hi Aaron, first of all thank you for doing what you do: I love your work so much! Chief Tyrol in Battlestar Galactica is probably one of the characters who goes through more stuff. Is there a part of his life (like being chief and involved with Boomer, being head of the Union and of the Resistance on New Caprica, being one of the final five…) that you found most fun to play or challenging to portray?

theaarondouglas: It was all pretty fun, emotional, trying and beautiful. The death scenes were gut punching. Every Single Frakking One


ThePorjaxian: Hi Aaron! Thanks for doing this AmA. Big BSG fan and loved your role there, I also loved your short role on Stargate SG-1. Can you tell us about the time you rescued Kari Byron (/u/realkaribyron) at Comic Con from being trampled, what happened? (source: https://twitter.com/KariByron/status/918648660484702208)

theaarondouglas: Man I love Kari…. I saw her across the room. There was at least 17 Klingons, 37 Death Eaters, 127 Walking Dead, 318 Stormtroopers and a Tribble. It was just me… They were all pushing in towards her. I had to act fast and boy did I!! It’s on video somewhere…. I’m sure it is… That’s what happened right Kari?

realkaribyron: Sounds about right. My hero.


HalfBakedTurkey: What’s your fondest memory growing up in New Westminster? I currently moved there for work.

theaarondouglas: Queens Park Arena


Starhazenstuff: What was your thought when you realized, “Holy shit this is one of the best Sci Fi’s of all time?”

theaarondouglas: I still haven’t realized that! I thought they say NO Spoilers!! ;-) I am so incredibly proud to be a small part of this amazing show.


KristiLynn629: Love you! Such a joy so see you in Dirk Gently. Do you ever get frustrated being so closely associated with just one character, no matter how awesome that character is? (I tend to yell “it’s Chief”, no matter what show you are in)

theaarondouglas: I will NEVER tire of people yelling Chief to me. I love it. I connect to the character and the show but the fact that so many people out there do as well is incredibly humbling.


mwillis96: Hi Aaron! There are many evolutions of Chief through the series. Which stage of Chief did you resonate with most? Which did you enjoy the most and why?

theaarondouglas: Hi Mandy!!! When he finally found out about the Cylon thing. I really got to stretch my legs and twist his response into a ‘the universe totally makes sense to me’ now.


vectorgeek: How did your BSG experience prepare you for other acting rolls you had after the series ended?

theaarondouglas: Be good to people. Don’t be grumpy on set. And we’re only getting shot with cameras… There are people out there doing much more important things. But honour the people who watch by giving them something amazing so they can escape the difficulties of life.


Just_A_Che_Away 99: Hey, you played my favourite character on BSG! As an actor, is there any role or project you would love to get involved with?

theaarondouglas: I would love to do a period war film. WWII or Vietnam or something like that. If anyone is listening…… hint hint hint


davec79: What’s your favorite thing that you stole from the set of BSG?

theaarondouglas: Everything…. Everyone’s chair backs My BDU’s My Orange JumpSuit Dog Tags A pistol. Wait… is NBCUNI on this thread? I took NOTHING!! But Tahmoh did…. thief ;-)


dkl415: One of my favorite moments from BSG was Tyrol’s “Mario Savio” speech. https://archive.org/details/MarioSavioSpeechInBattlestarGalactica
How intentionally tied was your performance to Mario Savio’s speech? How intentionally tied was the writing?

theaarondouglas: Completely. David Eick wrote that for me with that speech in mind. I watched the Mario speech 100’s of times. David wanted the tenor, tone and pitch to be close to Mario’s. I love that speech.


michelle_adfans: Comic book publisher, editor, and writer Joe Pruett from AfterShock Comics is currently on tour doing in-store signings. You are joining him tomorrow for a signing in Texas. How did this invitation come to be? And should we be reading anything into this? Are you interested in pursuing a side-job as a comic book writer?

theaarondouglas: Joe is signing Saturday evening at Space Cadets Collection Collection and I am joining him as a guest. Joe and I are working on a few projects and soon we will be able to tell the world. I am really excited to get into the comic book world.

theaarondouglas: Joe is the reason I am in Houston. He has plans for me and his company AfterShock Comics. Plans we cannot talk about yet but we are working on some fun things. As you know I have been writing for several years now and an opportunity opened up in the comic world so I am pursuing that and I hope that it, and many other things, come as a result.


springhorton: Hi Aaron! Do you ever work with new filmmakers and if so, what should one do to catch your interest?

theaarondouglas: Call my agent. I love working with new filmmakers… They’re lest jaded HA


zigwhenzag: Is this when you leak there will be another BSG? I really hope it is!

theaarondouglas: I can neither confirm nor deny that there is another BSG experience in the works….


TrixieVanSickle: welcome to Reddit! Thank you for doing this AMA! I’ve seen pictures of your adorable dog on your Twitter feed, can you tell us about your cute furbaby?

theaarondouglas: His name is Archer, he’s chocolate Lab and he’s a year and a half. He’s my bestie and I love him. I wanted a brother and sister so I could call them Archer and Lana but my wife said no… just one. I wanted to yell LANAAAAAAA from the front door and make her come to me….. next time…


MrGurns: If you could have one role in any upcoming movie, which role in which movie would that be?

theaarondouglas: Chief in the new BSG movie


kthrace22: Hi Aaron, thanks for doing this AMA. I am opening a deli and would love to know what your favorite sandwich is?

theaarondouglas: I am a lacto ovo vegetarian but I LOVE a really great egg salad sandwich. If my body would allow me to I would CRUSH a Reuben…… Or a Beef Dip Pastrami on Rye Corned Beef was my go to when I was a kid.


robbdire: Seeing the set of BSG, with all the Vipers etc, what was your favourite part of that particular set, and what “souvenir” did you take home?

theaarondouglas: Walking in, seeing the life size ships for the first time will be a memory that never fades


eno_tinu: Hi Arron. How is your modelling cave coming on?

theaarondouglas: It is stalled as I am busy with other things but I hope to get back to it soon. I just need Tricia to come over and then it will truly be a modelling cave……


politeandnotgay: How was your experience as “the slowest man alive” on The Flash? Is getting lobotomized by Tom Cavanagh as fun as it seems?

theaarondouglas: Tom is the best. Great guy and he delighted in killing me…. jerkface


Tournament_of_Shivs: Why does IMDB say your trademark is “Deep Raspy Voice” as opposed to “Realistic Eye Movement Conveying Thought and Emotion?” Unrelated: Do you ever feel typecast? If yes, follow-up: Based on what characteristic?

theaarondouglas: you should tell IMDB!! HA. Living in Vancouver I typically get cop, lawyer, FBI.. etc. I enjoy it when I get to do something else. Like Gordon Rimmer Gary Heller


Lerg-: Thanks Aaron for doing this! Met you a few times at DragonCon, and you’ve always been accessible, friendly, and genuinely seem to embrace us crazy fans. :) Question: If you hadn’t been cast as Chief, what other character would you have most enjoyed playing?

theaarondouglas: Wow…. Not Gaeta, too much tech talk Not Apollo, too much gym Not Helo, too much rain running around. Baltar…. Definitely Baltar.


Booshambles: Hello Chief, I am a huge fan of BSG and wanted to know 2 things. Where you happy with the way your character evolved towards the end of battlestar? Also you were a henchman in XMEN2, was that role bigger but cut in the final film, any stories from the set?

theaarondouglas: I love the storyline of the Chief and I love his ending. That shooting scene, 11 seconds in the film, took 8 days to shoot. Hugh Jackman is the nicest man you will ever meet.


stroempen: Are you also into bears and beets?

theaarondouglas: Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica


joeception: Hey Aaron, Chief was such a solid character in BSG for almost the entire series until he found out he was a cylone (went to depressive mode). How did you feel about Chief’s decline and the end of his story?

theaarondouglas: love it. love it all. Screw you both I’m going to found Scotland!


Froyo_Baggins123: I treasure BSG. Galen is such a perfect flawed character. I laughed and cried with your character at times. Where in the production were you told that you were one of the final five cylons?

theaarondouglas: Right before we started shooting that ep. Also the full story is in many places online. I told it at the BSG reunion at SDCC this past year.


angelkirie: Hi Aaron! If you had to live on one beer (or brewery) for the rest of your life, which would it be?

theaarondouglas: a very hoppy IPA


thecommanderking: Welcome to Houston! There was some spooky level fog this morning. Were you worried that you woke up in the zombie appocalypse?

theaarondouglas: I haven’t opened the curtains yet…. I think I will stay in today….


celloandbow: Which superhero do you wish you could portray and why?

theaarondouglas: As a kid I loved Aquaman. I want to be able to talk to sharks


Supershorty12: Hi Aaron, Which actor (including yourself) on BSG were most like their characters personality-wise, and vice versa? Thank you

theaarondouglas: Hogan and Tigh. Same exact guy!


Assburger_King: Random question, I know, but did you ever watch the show Firefly or it’s sequel movie Serenity? If so, what did you think of them?

theaarondouglas: I am going to get killed for this but I have not seen these… Or Dr. Who…


slthomp2: Are you a cat person, a dog person, or a frakkin toaster lover?

theaarondouglas: B and C. Cats are creepy


spookyspooky: Hi Mr. Douglas, I am a big fan with a few questions. Why is Chad the worst? Does Russ actually do anything? What will Marian be for Halloween?

theaarondouglas: If you have to ask why Chad is the worst you don’t know Chad. He’s a sharter for one. Thinks he’s Matt Damon. Can’t hold his booze. Damn him and his handsome face! Russ is completely useless. Marian will cosplay as Wizard…Heavy emphasis on the pointy hat


Polterhorst: Greetings from Europe. When and how did you find out that your BSG character was one of the final five? And what was your reaction?

theaarondouglas: That is a long story. But a good one. Google me and the Final 5 Story and you will see it recorded from a few dozen cons.

Webmistress Note: You will see this same question asked a few times. This is the BSG Reunion panel at SDCC that Aaron starts referring people to in later questions. Watch it from time stamp: 08:26 – 11:10.


RedditUser427: Star Wars or Star Trek?

theaarondouglas: Star Wars. But love Trek


VoteForRollins: Who do you like better.. Joey Belladonna or John Bush?

theaarondouglas: Both awesome but I know Joey so I have to go Joey. Great guys all of them


The8thDoctor: Hey Aaron. Thx for doing AMA. It’s implied that Tyrol became the King of Scotland. What’s will be his first invention?. Bag Pipes. Kilts. Whiskey.

theaarondouglas: Whiskey…. We cannot live without water


that_is_so_Raven: Do you watch Breaking Bad?

theaarondouglas: Loved it. Love Better Call Saul. Amazing show.


illiniman14: How was the role of the Chief originally explained to you before you started and how did it differ from what the character eventually became?

theaarondouglas: Chief of the Deck. That’s it. Then they decided to keep me and it took off from there.


OyeYouDer: Dude! My girlfriend and I just realized it was you in Dirk Gently! Solid performance! Did you wind up with jaw problems having to talk like that for the show?

theaarondouglas: Ha… Not jaw but my back. That posture almost killed me.


projectvko: How do you take your coffee? I adore you.

theaarondouglas: double double


emsydi: What has been your favourite convention experience?

theaarondouglas: I’ve had 100’s. I love meeting fans, having a pint and talking the show, sports life, whatever


normstons: Hi there, here my question: Did you have a dream where you were Gordon Rimmer or something about Dirk gently’s holistic detective agency?

theaarondouglas: I am so proud of Rimmer


CobaltAesir: Hi Aaron, I think you rocked in your role in Dirk Gentley. You barely even looked like you! What was it like to have to walk and move hunched up like that and to wear those huge glasses all the time? Did you get any back problems?

theaarondouglas: I love that they let me play, for the most part. Those glasses kept falling apart and we only had the one pair


DaStompa: Are you going to paint more models with Adam? It was a good time watching you two shoot the shit for like an hour!

theaarondouglas: I sure hope so! Love that man

mistersavage: YES!


respectfulpanda: I guess comments have to be questions. Soooo, i love your work and the question is, now that Netflix is going to focus on Canadian content with a Netflix Canada org, what are the chances your already in discussions with them? :)

theaarondouglas: Not just yet but I have a few projects I’m hoping to pitch soon.


cool_creeper500: What inspired you to be an actor?

theaarondouglas: It’s literally the only thing in which I have even the smallest ability.


eviljobob: Hi Aaron, What is your favourite episode of Red Dwarf? And have you watched any of the new series (12) yet?

theaarondouglas: The Rimmer song is still the best


1deadeye1: Hi Aaron. If you had a pontoon boat, what would you name her?

theaarondouglas: Floatie


TOMBTHEMUSICIAN: Long time BSG fan, loved your role in Dirk Gently, totally amazing!
My question is sort of two questions, sort of one question: What would your dream role of all time be? For example if you could go back in time and play that one character in that one movie, what would it be? Or similarly, what’s the character/actor you saw in your youth that made you go “well damn I gotta get in on this acting business”.

theaarondouglas: Something in The Godfather. Al Pacino in And Justice For All. Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan. Ralph Feinnes in Schindler’s List


PragmesianAdam: Hi Aaron, what I’d like to know is how you felt about the fate of your character in Hemlock Grove? It seemed like there was a lot more to learn about Sheriff Sworn.

theaarondouglas: I agree. Should’ve been more


ImitateOblivion: Which one of your co-stars did you have a crush on most?

theaarondouglas: Aleks Paunovic


jsabo: I still remember meeting you at ComicCon ’06, when you wandered up to the autograph area, and were immediately swarmed by folks. You were gracious enough to take the time to talk to everyone, which really impressed me. With everything you’ve done since then, are you still able to just sort of wander into a crowd of nerds, or have you become too recognizable to get away with it?

theaarondouglas: Depends on where I am. But regardless, I’ll always wade in. People are amazing. For the most part


the_costello_show: Hey Aaron, loved you in the role of Gordon Rimmer on Dirk Gently. Honestly, you played that role almost too well… only now did I realize I knew you as Chief. Thanks, man. Brilliant stuff.
Ok, so you’ve played roles in two series (BSG, Dirk Gently) that had plot lines where I had no idea where they were going… or where they’d end up. As an actor, how far do you know in advance where the story is headed and how does that affect your approach to the role? Are your motivations clear from the beginning or do you discover them along the way? Thanks, and keep up the great choices in roles!

theaarondouglas: Depends on the show. They either give you the arc or sometimes don’t.


l2apathy: Yo! I remember seeing you appear as all these characters on all these shows and movies and always thought to myself that you were seriously underrated. Just throwing that out there. When you appeared as Chief is BSG it blew my mind. I thought to myself “Why such an insignificant role again!?” However after watching the show and seeing how important of a role you played I was super happy. So yeah, just saying I think you are awesome man. I guess my real question is do you fight for roles and try to get the big ones? Or more of a “This character looks cool, I’ll do that”?

theaarondouglas: I’ll work whenever someone asks


krystynlo: How do you know Adam Savage (https://www.reddit.com/user/mistersavage)?

theaarondouglas: Through BSG and then hanging out and being silly together. Genuinely one of the finest humans I’ve ever known.


yemmlie: Love your work, you were my favourite character on BSG! I guess to turn this into a question: Do you approve that our two whippets are called Cally and Chief? You’re the one on the left looking nervous of getting a telling off.

theaarondouglas: HA. love it


Oak987: What other things have Tricia and Katee told you to do?

theaarondouglas: Not Safe For Work


Ranma_11788: Oh man! Hey Chief!! Fellow British Columbia native here. What has been your favorite role in your career? (besides BSG?) Do you have a favorite BSG episode? Thanks!!

theaarondouglas: Frank Leo in The Bridge. Flight of the Phoenix


1deadeye1: Hi Aaron, love the Anthrax shirt. What are your thoughts on the John Bush-era Anthrax? I like Belladonna, but something about those John Bush albums always hooked me in.

theaarondouglas: I love all of Anthrax. Anthems of my youth


Mjolnir12: Did you ever watch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which Ron Moore also worked on? A lot of the BSG elements (like darker story and political intrigue) are present in it, so I’m wondering if you or any of the other BSG actors had been exposed to it before the show started (or after).

theaarondouglas: Yeah, I love Trek. I don’t know if anyone else watches it.


mwillis96: One more from my husband…when Chief had time off was he a metalhead? If Chief were in a band which instrument would he play? Would he be a Dave Murray or Adrian Smith fan?

theaarondouglas: This is the most difficult question anyone has asked. He’s a total metalhead. He’d be a drummer. But Dave Murray because Chief loves the gallop in the songs.


Synystermuskrat: Hey Aaron! Thanks for doing an AMA. I actually worked on Dirk Gently in lighting for a couple episodes but I was always too nervous to say hi. Do you like it when fans approach you, including in the work setting? Or is it more of a on the street kind of thing?

theaarondouglas: Always come up and say hi. I love meeting people who were influenced by my work


kvachon: How soon into production did you know your character’s true idenity? Were you as shocked as I was? I honestly did not even consider it until the four of you met in that little room after following the “All Along the Watchtower” sounds throughout the ship. That blew my mind, and cemented the show as my all-time favorite.

theaarondouglas: Day before we shot it


Anywotsemporium: I gotta ask, did you get to keep anything from the show? Except your own likeness of course 😀

theaarondouglas: There’s a list further up somewhere


limbodog: What’s your favorite Anthrax song?

theaarondouglas: Time


Devb0: Hey Aaron! Going into your role as Chief did you know what the significance of your character would be later on? Do you think the writers did?

theaarondouglas: Not at all. I think Chief was to die early. I’m happy they kept me.


Dongdaedongdongdong: Yooo, Chief! Holy crap this is great! I was wondering, of all the scenes you did, which was the most fun or interesting ones to make? Cheers mate!

theaarondouglas: End of Dirty Hands. Just Mary and I. I’ll never forget that.


ghidorah221: What was the island the chief settled on at the end of BSG? I’ve heard theory that it was either Vancouver or Great Britain.

theaarondouglas: What has become Scotland


YoBuckStopsHere: Cally’s death tore me up. Do you think that was one of the many reasons Galen ultimately settled far away from the others?

theaarondouglas: One on a VERY long list of people being poopy to Chief


ExskweezeMe: Aaron, Battlestar Galactica is one of the greatest shows to ever air on television. I’m not exaggerating! My question is when did you find out you were part of the final five (was it not until you read the script, or did they give you heads up) and how did you feel about it after all those years?

theaarondouglas: google BSG reunion at SDCC. I answer that very question on the stage in front of Ron and David.


Jendew400: Thanks for doing this! How is your worldview/perspective influenced by the many roles you’ve played, especially in current times?

theaarondouglas: Let’s find a way to be better to each other.


laudiusmonstar: You’re awesome man! I got the chance to see Michael Hogan in Indy during their Pop Con. From his reactions, all you guys were pretty close. Do you and the whole of BSG cast ever try to hang out or anything now that the show is over?

theaarondouglas: Whenever we are in the same city we find a way to get together. I sincerely love all of them. And that just doesn’t happen with other shows.


ishtaracademy: Did you ever get sick of the BSG writers screwing Chief over? Did you ever want to tell them “rain on someone else a while”? For those unaware… I mean… his girlfriend is the first undercover Cylon found, and she tries to kill Adama. Then she is killed, he is sad, yet everyone is happy she is dead (and despite her being a Cylon, he lost his lover in Boomer). Then Chief had to see his girlfriend’s doppleganger join the crew and start screwing his friend Helo. Then he dates Cally, has a kid, has to lead the resistance and kill friends, make hard decisions. Then he finds out his son isn’t even his son and Cally screwed Hotdog, then Cally is KILLED. Then he finds out he is actually a Cylon too, and that another Cylon is the one who killed Cally, throwing his entire life thus far into a mess (as well as all of his feelings about Boomer). My favorite part about that entire thing was the ending: fuck this, I’m going to go found Scotland. The man embodies the flavor and reason of scotch, so I was glad he decided to just go die alone in a swamp haha. It was fitting for the fact that everyone, over and over, screwed him over.

theaarondouglas: No. The worst thing that can happen to an actor is when they just write you the fill in the blanks stuff. Exposition to explain something to the audience. Or everything is happy and easy. I love the challenging stuff.


Darrens_Coconut: I just wanted to say that Chief is one of my favourite characters in BSG. The leadership, humanity and toughness when it’s required, you did an amazing job! What did you think about the character when you first heard of the role?

theaarondouglas: He wasn’t then what he ultimately became.


fluttika: Are you a SciFi fan? Fav shows? Have you seen the Expanse? I consider it to be on par with BSG.

theaarondouglas: I have not seen the Expanse but I hear great things. I’d like to get on that show for sure. I love scifi Star Wars Red Dwarf Time Bandits Westworld. So many to list


Caustic-Echo: Anything you are in currently? or coming up soon?

theaarondouglas: Just finished a movie called Thunderbird. Doing an awesome new video game…. that’s all I can say about it. Writing a lot. Have a number of things on the go.


Team_Horus: What song have you been listening to on repeat recently?

theaarondouglas: George Michael Kissing A Fool. Elvis Long Black Limo-True Love Travels a Gravel Road. Everything Maiden, Anthrax and Ozzy. Mozart to start my day


thelonegoldfish: Have you played the Battlestar Galactica board game by Fantasy Flight? Did you play as Chief?

theaarondouglas: I have not but something I think I need to change


About_Three_Fift: Hello Aaron! When were you told that your character in BSG was infact a !!SPOILER!! cylon !!SPOILER!!? Were you surprised when you found out?

theaarondouglas: check the BSG reunion panel


Zer0Summoner: I had to convince my wife to watch BSG, but she ended up loving it, and by the end she decided you are her celebrity cheat. So my question is, if I were going to make any of your female costars my celebrity cheat, who would you recommend?

theaarondouglas: Doc Cottle


rich115: What trait or moment of the show would you say was pivotal in it being a great tv show?

theaarondouglas: Ron’s vision. David’s steering. Michael Rymer’s directing. All of the writers My boy Mark Verheiden


mikegus15: Whats your favorite quote related to Battlestar Galactica and why is it, “Bears, beats, Battlestar Galactica.”?

theaarondouglas: Do you watch Battlestar Galactica? No Then you are an idiot.


illiniman14: BSG was at the forefront of the writers strike with the webisodes it produced – how do you feel the strike affected the show (if at all), or did it just delay the story that was going to be told eventually?

theaarondouglas: If the strike had lasted a little longer the show would’ve ended on the burned out nuked earth…. How’s that for an ending?


TrixieVanSickle: one more from me: What’s your favorite thing to eat when you’re in NYC?

theaarondouglas: Anything Italian


NDaveT: BSG had so many great actors. I’m just going to ask about one of them: what was it like working with Edward James Olmos? How many Miami Vice jokes did he have to put up with?

theaarondouglas: None really but Eddie did have great stories from Vice. Working with him is a master class in acting, being a pro and being good to people on set.


Vaguswarrior: Hey Aaron, thanks for doing this, whacky question, if you had to replace the cast of The Bridge with the cast of BSG who would play who? Absolutely loved you in both roles, but The Bridge really was great, the parallel of The Chief being in the military to running a union on New Caprica then the similar development for Frank Leo was pretty awesome to watch.

theaarondouglas: I think a solid cop squad would be Tahmoh Katee Aleks Alessandro Grace


–_l: Question: What kind of bear is best?

theaarondouglas: That’s a ridiculous question


shivan21: Hi Aaron, are you a DIY man?

theaarondouglas: Very much so. I love to tinker


watchitbub: Every show that films in Vancouver features obligatory scenes of actors running through a forest. As a Vancouver actor how many times have YOU been filmed running through a forest? Any tips for new actors running through a forest for the first time?

theaarondouglas: pick up your feet and watch out for bears


itimetravelwell: Did not know the Chief was a fellow Canuck! What’s the most Canadian thing about you that others might not know?

theaarondouglas: I know how to order at Tim’s


seismicor: Are you a fan of the original Battlestar Galactica? What do you think that the original TV series managed to do better than the new version?

theaarondouglas: Loved it as a kid. It was Star Wars on TV every week. You simply couldn’t do what we did on TV in the 70’s. But if they were making it today I have no doubt it would be cool.


shivan21: What instructions in BSG did you get concerning your acting? Was there anything in them that could explain the great naturalistic style of BSG?

theaarondouglas: Nothing. I remember asking Michael Rymer about that well into shooting. I said, “None of the directors talk to me. What am I doing wrong?” He said, “Nothing. You are giving them exactly what they want. Don’t stop.”


serveux: Can we get some more videos with you and u/mistersavage just shooting the shit and building models? That video was super chill and fun.

theaarondouglas: YES YES YES YES. please….

mistersavage: YES! Would love that.


TheseWereThePlaces: Should the Canucks trade the Sedins? Both, or just one? If one, which one?

theaarondouglas: No. Let them play out the year and give them something upstairs. My opnion.


mega512: any weird reactions from fans when they found out you were one of the final five? My wife was personally devastated. Lol.

theaarondouglas: Literally every emotion and response available.


magylo: Was Chief the origin of Santa? as in, Chief makes things very well, created a race of beings, had a traumatic estrangement with a child, desired to live alone in the north, and like the raiders Rudolph has a red nose.

theaarondouglas: He wasn’t… Until now…… I like where your head’s at.


onlythisonecomment: Did you know everything that was planned for your character in advance or was it a surprise to learn about your plot involvements?

theaarondouglas: They broke each season as they wrote them. Ron had a vision for the overall story but each thread was developed each season.


anteru: Of all the conventions you have gone to this year so far, which one has been your favorite?

theaarondouglas: I’ve only done a few and I enjoy them all for different reasons. Personally I like the smaller fan centric cons.


seismicor: Hello. What is your opinion on the new TV series Star Trek: Discovery?

theaarondouglas: Haven’t seen it yet but I am really excited to. My friend Ted works on that show and he’s a great guy. I won’t know what to say to him if his show stinks…. HA


Ctrl5: Aaron! What’s your favorite way to eat eggs?

theaarondouglas: deliciously scrambled or poached


Scirocco-MRK1: You bring a lot of intensity to your characters. What role, no matter if it was a single episode, has been your favorite since BSG?

theaarondouglas: Gordon Rimmer


comune: Chief, just came here to say ‘good lad!’ and how’s Friday treating you?

theaarondouglas: People are lovely in Houston and here online and the bar is open so Friday is outstanding.


Enyk: Wife and I are catching Dirk Gently finally. Yes, I know, we’re a wee bit behind. So, exactly how big was the chart or how long was the explanation to everyone involved of what the fsck was going on in that show?

theaarondouglas: Max would answer any and every question we all had. I knew from the start what was going to happen. He has the whole thing in his head.


_Bobbin: I most recently saw you on Imposters and you were a real piece of work that I almost had sympathy for. Good job making me feel uneasy about that guy pretty much all the time. But my questions are:
do you prefer short appearances in tv shows or longer runs? Would you rather play an asshole or a nice guy?

theaarondouglas: I LOVE Imposters so so so much!! That was one of the best experiences making a show I have ever had in my life. I adore Adam and Paul and Inbar so much. I wish I could’ve stayed on it for years. I would prefer to be on a show long term, especially if it is great.


ZiggyNJ: How is your puppy? Can you post pics? Can I come over and play with him?

theaarondouglas: He’s awesome and amazing and crazy. I will post pics when I get home.


glorious_cheese: Viper or Raptor?

theaarondouglas: Raider


JaCoBaLlEn: Aaron, what is your all time favorite soup?

theaarondouglas: Potato and Leek


xizore: Loved you in the last season of Dirk Gently! Any chance of coming back in some capacity for the next season? What about villains do you enjoy as an actor? Was there anything you wanted to do with Gordon that didn’t quite fit?

theaarondouglas: Gordon is done. I like a grey hat villain. I like to play crazy people because they don’t know they’re crazy. They loved Gordon at first, then hated him, then loved him again so I have no idea what was going on behind the scenes. I just kept doing Gordon as I saw him and Rob fought all of the battles for me so I could make Rimmer Rimmer.


Dackers: Hey, you played my favorite character on BSG! Any behind the scenes pranks or funny bits from the show you can share?

theaarondouglas: Ask Nikki Clyne about the screw


Seanshotfirst: Chief was by far the best character on the show, thanks for doing an amazing job bringing him to life!
How was it filming the occupation story line for season 3? That was at the hight of the Iraq war insurgency, and BSG was doing what few shows were doing at the time and delivering a story from the point of view of those being occupied by a superior foreign force. Was the parallel to Iraq obvious to everyone while filming? Did it make you feel differently about what was happening in Iraq?

theaarondouglas: The impossibly great thing about our show was Ron holding a mirror up to the world and asking Do you like what you see? We had many many conversations as a cast about what we were doing. I have met so many amazing vets and the stories of Iraq and Afghanistan and watching BSG while deployed bring an indescribable feeling to my soul.


similar_observation: Hey Aaron, I loved seeing Chief Tyrol go through emotional life changes, it really stuck with me. Did you pull from any real life experiences when playing Chief Tyrol during those parts?

theaarondouglas: I had some real life stuff going on that mirrored a lot of what was going on with Chief. It didn’t take much for me to find the emotions around loss, fear, sadness and rage.


enigmical: Do you fear a robot uprising? If so, when do you think it will occur? How long will humans last? Was Stargate Universe a rip off of Battlestar Galactica?

theaarondouglas: When the robots rise up there will be nothing we can do. And I’ll be in Scotland off the grid. I didn’t see SGU


liamquane: What was it like working with Zoe Kazan?

theaarondouglas: A beautiful woman inside and out. Tremendous actor. Genuinely.


liamquane: What was it like working with Bryan Bertino on The Monster?

theaarondouglas: I really loved working with Bryan. He is one talented frakking guy. I hope to circle back sometime and do something again.


Sodonotcare: When’s the last time you’ve just gone balls out crazy and punched someone who woke you up from a sound sleep?

theaarondouglas: See Chad…..


Psyri: Hi Chief! Love BSG massively here. How did you feel about the ending, especially the cryptic/spiritual veins that got stronger as the show went on? Also, would love to know if you’re going to be around for any Cons in the UK anytime soon, I got to hug the Commander at MCM 2K14 :D

theaarondouglas: I loved our ending. I think it ended perfectly. No plans for the UK just yet but I do love going to my ancestral homeland


rusellpeter: What drew you to your role on Dirk Gently?

theaarondouglas: a cheque


liamquane: Hi Mr. Douglas. Can I ask, what is the best thing a director can do for you on set? :~) Thank you!

theaarondouglas: turn on the camera and leave me alone. Ha. Communicate That’s the most important thing


Glowisms: Pineapple on pizza?

theaarondouglas: also-frakkin-lutely. But I slice my pineapple BBQ it with a Kosher salt dusting Then core it and chop into smaller bits and onto the pizza it goes. I make awesome pizza from scratch on my BBQ


neutralpalettehotel: Hi Aaron! You were amazing in Battlestar, Stargate and made for a frightening (on screen) stalker too! Could you name an underrated film/show have you been in that you’d recommend that isn’t BSG?

theaarondouglas: A fun family movie with Kim Williams Paisley and Patrick Dempsey called Lucky 7. Imposters is great. The Bridge The CTV one. Good cop show.


FreddeCheese: What do you think about Blade Runner 2049? ps: loved the show, and you in it!

theaarondouglas: Haven’t seen it yet but cannot wait


shivan21: Do you think a spinoff of BSG could be possible?

theaarondouglas: Yes Absolutely. Yes. does that answer that?


Piggynatz: Hey dude, love your work! A ways back I met you at Pearson Airport. You were very gracious and even re-took a picture with me despite being their with your friends (they pointed out that I was geeking out a couple tables over). Thank you for that. I loved you in The Bridge. My girlfriend’s ex is a cop and he indicated that Bromell was indeed airing Toronto’s dirty laundry (he loved the show, btw). Are you able to comment on whether that was the reason the show was renewed but they ‘forgot’ to renew the actors’ contracts?

theaarondouglas: That’s not why the show went away….. I wish it hadn’t. Tried everything I could to keep it alive and we did for a short time but then the Network had to move on to other things.


shivan21: Have you played BSG: The Board Game?

theaarondouglas: not yet


fatfrost: Loved you in BSG but duala was my favorite. I was very sad when she shot herself. How did you guys process that scene emotionally?

theaarondouglas: I forgot that it was in that ep and I fell out of my chair when she did that. Kandyse is not just cast mate but a very close friend of mine. Love that girl. Kandyse and I would sit in my trailer between set ups and watch Family Guy and when she was suddenly not there anymore it sucked…


respectthet: Hi Aaron! You were, by far, my favorite character on BSG. Are you aware of your striking resemblance to current Chicago Cubs, and former Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila?

theaarondouglas: HA I have been told that before. Also Young Orson Welles Young Brian Dennehy Donny Osmand…. Don’t care for this one as much… haha A photo negative of Sinbad the comic.


the_harveyexperience: Have you ever had the full Harvey Weinstein experience?

theaarondouglas: Thankfully no


PornoPaul: I literally thought you played Amos on the Expanse the first time I saw BSG. Has anyone else ever gotten that mixed up? Please say yes so I don’t feel like a total ass. Also, I really enjoy watching the transformation your character has undertaken (halfway through season 4 of bsg) , do you have any other upcoming projects? Yes to both questions is totally acceptable

theaarondouglas: I have gotten that a few times. Handsome devil…. There are things coming up, just can’t talk about them yet. Code for unemployed actor….


Khadaji1028: Hello Aaron. First off, Thank you for being a major part in out of the best Sci Fi shows of all time. In your experience on the show, How much secrecy was on the set as far as the plot went? Did every one know what was going on or did they make it a point to keep everyone somewhat in the dark? Also, With some of the plot twist in the show, did that cause additional mental wear and tear? Or was everyone able to slide into and out of character fairly easy?

theaarondouglas: They shared info if you asked but we all also knew we were making something special and with that it’s important to keep things secret. I can pop into Chief even now. I put on the BDU’s or even the boots and I feel like him.


Pharius: Chief, I’m rewatching the series right now. How long did it take to grow that sweet beard on new caprica and why did they make you shave it off? I get why Adama lost the Stache, but that beard was glorious and necessary.

theaarondouglas: I grew it on our hiatus and when I returned for season 3 Ron saw it and asked if it was real. Of course. Can you keep it for a few eps? Of course again.
I loved it.


UberSpazz: After acting for so long, who would you say are some of the coolest people you got to meet?

theaarondouglas: Hugh Jackman, Wil Smith, Everyone from BSG, Adam Savage, Anthrax, Mikey Dolenz. On and on and on


noobwithboobs: Hi Chief! Has anyone ever pointed out to you that if you put on goggles and a hard hat you’re practically the human embodiment of The Engineer from Team Fortress 2? When BSG was first airing my entire household was playing a lot of TF2, and watching BSG together every week, and we couldn’t help but notice a resemblance.

theaarondouglas: no one has said that to me. but I will check that out.


criscothediscoman: Have you seen any of Star Trek: Discovery? It feels like BSG in its tone.

theaarondouglas: Not yet but looking forward to it.


puigcaro: Hey Aaron! Hope you see this. thank you for doing this AMA, BSG is one of my favorite shows and I love the fact that the actors are so in love with the story and not only don’t mind talking about it with fans.. but enjoy it too! Is there anything you’re working on right now that we should look out for? A pet project perhaps? Thanks and love all the way from Uruguay!

theaarondouglas: There are some things I am writing and I am really excited to see them come out for the world to see. We all just have to wait a bit.


throwawayyyyyyyy888: Hey Mr Douglas you have a great diverse body of work. You played two different characters on Stargate SG1. How does that work you do 1 role and they are impressed with you so they bring you back for a second? Don’t fans get confused you play two different characters on one show?

theaarondouglas: There are only so many actors in Vancouver so some shows recycle us. HA


SAMCRO172: Hi Aaron! BSG is my absolute favorite show of all time! I was giddy when I saw Michael Hogan on 12 Monkeys, any chance I’ll see you show up in a space opera soon. Star Trek Discovery or the Expanse maybe?

theaarondouglas: I sure hope so. I would hop a plane in a second.


heff66: Just loved your work as Rimmer in Dirk Gently. The rant you do at the end of Episode 6 is just an amazing piece of acting and writing. My question is did the writers and directors explain the whole plot to you by that point, or were you still in the dark like the rest of us?

theaarondouglas: Max shared everything with us so we knew where it was going which helped us all track everything… sort of…


comer93: Aaron, loved your character in the show. What was the most difficult scene that you had to shoot during BSG?

theaarondouglas: Socinus death Boomer death Chief finds the empty house. All the death and loss stuff


ifiwereabravo: I loved your role in Dirk Gently’s holistic detective agency. Are you involved in any more quirky shows like that that are coming out? If so what can we look forward to seeing with you in it?

theaarondouglas: No but I do need more quirky in my life.


ThePorjaxian: What made you decide that acting was your thing? How did you roll into it?

theaarondouglas: It’s the only thing people would hire me to do. I have no other skills…..


klgdmfr: I am literally 11 episodes into your series. What can I expect, without giving away any spoilers? I’ll read your response and bookmark the AMA and going to binge the series over the weekend. Doubt I’ll finish it, but so looking forward to reading this AMA when I’m done!!!

theaarondouglas: Oh man…. you have hours and hours of awesome coming at you. Just go into it. Expect nothing but surprises


KnightFartorias: My dad and I watch BSG together, and that show gave us something great to bond over. What other actor in BSG did you become the closest with and what is your favorite moment with him/her?

theaarondouglas: Hogan and Trucco and Clyne. I have so many great memories with all of them


Xizorfalleen: What is your favourite track from the BSG OST?

theaarondouglas: Tyrol’s theme of course


Slanderpanic: I just rewatched The Plan yesterday. Did Edward James Olmos give you any ribbing over smooching his wife?

theaarondouglas: No, but he gave it to her for getting to smooch me…


Nyxceris: I didnt peg you as a metal fan until i just saw your imdb picture wearing an Anthrax shirt. What are some of your other favourite bands?

theaarondouglas: I grew up listening to everything but our dressing room was filled with Metal. Sabbath Meatloaf Iron Maiden Anthrax AC/DC. so many more. Hairbands when one of the jackasses got a hold of the ghetto blaster


WangtorioJackson: Would you ever consider guest starring on the current SyFy show The Expanse as Amos’ brother? I seriously think you two look so much alike it’s almost scary.

theaarondouglas: short answer? abso-frakkin-lutely


soullessredhead: Did Ronald Moore really have a lot of the “Final Five” stuff planned out from the beginning (especially with Ellen Tigh), or was he just kind of flying by the seat of his pants. Also, was the Chief supposed to be Bob Dylan or something? I think I remember him mentioning that he wrote All Along the Watchtower, and that’s why the Final Five kept hearing it. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched the series though, I’ve been meaning to do it again.

theaarondouglas: That’s a Ron question but from what I know Ron had the general idea of what he wanted to do with the show but allowed other voices to mould and shape the entirety of the arc and storylines. His openness is one of his many many great traits. Just the best guy to work with.


AMA_ABOUT_MY_WRITING: To this day, the scene leading to and including the revelation of the final five is my favourtie piece of television. How did you feel when you found out you were a no good frakkin’ toaster?

theaarondouglas: check out the BSG reunion panel at SDCC this year. The whole story is there and it’s a fun one.


cmchu: Hi Aaron! Loved you in BSG obviously, but I was blown away watching Dirk Gently and slowly realizing that brilliant madman was you. So I have to ask a non-BSG question. Was your performance as Gordon Rimmer in Dirk Gently at all inspired by the character of Mr. Plinkett from the RedLetterMedia Plinkett movie reviews? It took me so long to recognize you because I was thrown by the uncanny likeness in the voice. Great work either way!

theaarondouglas: I’ve had this question before and the answer is no. I had never heard of Mr. Plinkett until the show aired and someone directed me to it and asked this.


AlphaBish101015: Was there any action that you wised your character had taken, but didn’t? Anything you’re especially proud of the Chief for doing? I’m currently re-watching for the first time in years, so this thread has me super pumped.

theaarondouglas: I’d like to say yes but that would change so much of the story. I really am pleased with the way the entirety of Chief played out. I am proud that Chief told them all to go to hell and went away on his own.


Litdown: How much do you love the pattulo bridge?

theaarondouglas: I never ever never ever take it.


ThirdFloorNorth: CHIEF! Holy shit, no matter what I see you in, you’re always “Chief”. I was wondering if you could weigh in on a personal favorite fan theory that Moore openly came out against. What do you think about the dead Cylon model, Daniel, being Starbuck’s father? They were both artistic, it would explain how she inherently knew the song, and would explain a lot of the weirdness surrounding the character.

theaarondouglas: I can’t see how that makes sense. I would agree with Ron.


LivingInTheVoid: Bears or Beets?

theaarondouglas: Bears. Always bears


Enigmatic_Penguin: Did you and Olmos trade any actual blows during your boxing match? If so, how hard can be Admiral actually hit?

theaarondouglas: We beat the hell out of each other. I have told that story at panels before. I bet you could find video of it somewhere. It’s a good story. He’s a tough bugger.


kieko: Chief! BSG is hands down one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, and the episode 33 was an absolute mastery. What is the longest you’ve gone without sleep?

theaarondouglas: oh man….. few days at least.


mrdude817: Chief! I only just watched BSG for the first time this year and finished it last month! What a wild ride it was! Anyway, what’s one thing on your bucket list that you wanna fulfill soon (like riding a motorcylce across/around Canada)?

theaarondouglas: African Safari. Cage dive with Great Whites


DeadRat88:
Hello sir. In regards to Dirk Gently, how great was it to end up in another cult classic tv show? Did you know it was going to be a hit right away?

theaarondouglas: I think Dirk Gently turned out really really well. Wish I could’ve stayed for a few years but on to other things. I hope season 2 is as great.


sanpilou: Hey, my favorite fixer and NOT the pizza guy! Loved Jordi in Watch_Dogs and Watch_Dogs 2. I was the character rigger who made him come alive in WD2 and I think he was my favorite to work on. Really wish they could have gotten you to come on site to do the motion capture, I would have LOVED to be able to shake your hand. What was your favorite line from the character of Jordi? I think I have a pretty good guess, but I’m really curious!

theaarondouglas: Oh man I love playing Jordi… I really hope there is more to come. Favourite line? So many… It’s great fun writing and they let me ad-lib some too so some lines are mine and some are theirs. I like the pizza guy scene but also the sticky bomb scene. Both still make me laugh.


qmechan: Was that you in Dirk Gently? Because that was amazing work. I don’t know how you’ll top that but I’m excited to watch you try.

theaarondouglas: yes it was. and thank you


03mark87: Thanks for doing this AMA! Who would ACTUALLY win in the boxing ring? You, or the old man?

theaarondouglas: Eddie…. He’s dirty


PradleyBitts: Man I just wanna day that BSG is my all time favorite show. The adventure, the life questions, the great characters, the intrigue, the parallel to current events, and the whole spiritual/exploring the origin of humanity aspects of it make it so good. What is your theory on what the fleet did after landing on Earth? How did they assimilate without bringing any of their tech or knowledge with them? Was it really logical for them to give up all their technology?

theaarondouglas: From my side it totally made sense for them to move on without the tech. It had caused so much damage. Chief went off alone so I don’t know what the rest of those dicks ended up doing…. ;-)


this_very_boutique: I’m always late to these things. :( Hey Aaron, what’s it gonna be like this year for the Canucks?

theaarondouglas: The Leafs 3 years ago.


SchroedingersSphere: In your interpretation of the ending (because “all of this has happened before and all of this will happen again), is OUR earth the dead planet found halfway through the series, or the one in the finale?

theaarondouglas: or are they the same earth?


billcozby: Why are you so good at yelling?

theaarondouglas: practice practice practice


SchroedingersSphere: What were yours and your crew mates’ thoughts on the final stretch of episodes and what direction the ending took? Thanks for being a part of one of the best modern-day sci-fi series!

theaarondouglas: We were all sad to see it coming to an end but for the most part I think we all loved the way it played out.


fraud_imposter: Why did you drop the vocal stuff you were doing for that one rant in Dirk gently? You almost sold me on that voice and I wanted to hear how you used it to still be threatening and terrifying but you just ditched that vocal work entirely for that scene and just went into a bassy register and I’m curious what motivated that choice. Nice work though! I enjoy you as an actor.

theaarondouglas: direction from producers and director. that’s all.


03mark87: Hey Chief, I loved BSG and recently forced my wife to watch it too. As long as we’re talking about wives, did you really think Cally had beady eyes and smelled like boiled cabbage, or were you just venting?

theaarondouglas: pure venting. out of sadness and rage


Milfshake23: How did Chief manage to gain weight while the rest of the ship was more or less starving? I kid I kid, thats not my question. I have watched every season 6 times over and I’m a huge fan. How did you react to the ending and how did you feel being part of such an amazing series?

theaarondouglas: Chief had a still. Tons of calories in a still. I love the ending and I remain hugely proud of the show and honoured to have been a small part.


RideFarmSwing: If there was a magic wizard who could turn you into the real chief at the end of the series on Earth… Would you take the adventure? Not that I’m a magic wizard or anything…

theaarondouglas: oh yes…. for sure. and I’d bring all my friends if they’d like


UncleDan2017: Did you ever end up saying Frak in your real life when you were filming BG?

theaarondouglas: Was alone in my kitchen one day. Dropped a pot on my foot. FRAK!!! Almost broke my neck spinning my head around to see if anyone saw or heard me……..


RuthlessNate56: Mr. Douglas, always loved you in BSG but you were almost unrecognizable at first in Dirk Gently! I saw your name in the credits of the first episode but didn’t spot your blink-and-you-miss-it first appearance. Then when you finally spoke I had to do a double-take just to make sure it was you. When prepping for that role, what inspired Gordon Rimmer’s weird accent you used? I got the sense that Gordon’s enunciation became clearer after he burned all his Lux Dujour paraphernalia. Was that intentional?

theaarondouglas: I read the script and realized that
1. This show is fantastically weird and that the characters should be as well. Grounded in as much reality as possible but with a little weirdness.
2. I decided I wanted strange hair, a walk, a speech, 80’s creepo glasses.
3. Presented the walk and talk to producers on day one and Max and Dean Parisot said “We love it!”
4. Lux is still Lux but he’s trapped in that body but as Lux emerged more and more as the season went on I wanted him to come through Gordon and override him more and more. So that’s why Gordon would drop the voice and stand up straight sometimes, just a little and only for short bursts. Flashes of the Lux.


Last_Lorien: Hi Chief!! Just a few days ago I couldn’t sleep and of course ended up rewatching random episodes of BSG… I discovered the series for the first time last year, I didn’t binge-watch like I usually do because I wanted to savour every minute of it, and I really really did. I love epic and scifi and this is possibly the best combination of both that I know. Thank you for being such a stellar part of it! I love your moments with Gaius, like when you confront him in his prison cell. What was James Callis like to work with? Did you like the way his character ended up?

theaarondouglas: There are few people in this world that I adore and love more than James Callis. He’s an amazing actor, husband, friend, father, human. I love to hate to love Baltar. He was amazing. I couldn’t have pulled that off.


UncleDan2017: So, what was the Cylon’s plan, or was it just to make half-toaster babies by getting knocked up by your character or helo?

theaarondouglas: No one got pregnant by Chief. Too much time spent in the warp core….. wait… is that the right show?


zzzuluz: Are you bit of a techie in your non-acting life? Do you like to tinker with stuff?

theaarondouglas: not techie at all but I love to tinker. I can go to the garage and tinker an entire day away. To some it may look like I’m doing nothing and drinking beers but to the trained eye I am doing nothing and drinking beers.


Nestorow: Hey Aaron, As a huuuge Battlestar fan, got the tattoo to prove it, I have to admit it took me way too long tp realise you where in Dirl Gently (about ep 5 I think). Was there any point in Dirk that really made your think back to Battlestar or The Chief?

theaarondouglas: When I wore a BSG shirt to set and the director laughed and said, “only you could pull off wearing yourself”


FishVirginia: Is Dwight Schrute a true fan?

theaarondouglas: Dwight is but I don’t know if Rainn is. I’m surely a big fan of his. Very talented man.


Birddawg65: Hey Chief! I saw you at a Brad paisley concert a few years back. I yelled out, “Chief Tyrol!!!” You came over and introduced yourself and took a picture with me. Good times! What’d you have for breakfast this morning?

theaarondouglas: glass of scotch piece of asphalt 17 ciggies, eaten not smoked


WolfPerception: Chief! I have seen you pop up in many shows since BSG and I’m pretty effin ecstatic for you. What are your top 5 bands to get you hyped? What was the best concert you’ve been to? P.S. If I had known you were in Houston, I would have helped you eat some food that will blow your mind. I hope you enjoy it here. This place is in need of some good things since the Hurricane. If you get a chance, please see if someone will get you some food from Gatlins BBQ off of Ella. I’m right next to it, and would gladly bring you some. It’s one of the top 50 in Texas.

theaarondouglas: Iron Maiden Metallica Anthrax Motorhead Judas Priest. Best concert-Bruce Springsteen Most fun concert-Steel Panther Most punch you in the face rock out-Anthrax


wrathmont: Hey, recently relistened for the 2,974th time the episode of the Ricky Gervais Podcast where you wrote in. How’d you get into them?

theaarondouglas: Honestly don’t remember but still laugh at Karl’s diary.


RobertThorn2022: How much Adama is Edward James Olmos?

theaarondouglas: pretty damn close.


Riddla26: Ah damn, I guess I missed it. I just wanted to ask when your good self and Adam Savage going to quit the foreplay and team up to do more model building videos with you and Adam as regular hosts and a 3rd guest celebrity builder each episode on Tested? ‘Cause bro, that is a bomb idea if I say so myself. This video of you doing exactly that has 1.2 million views on it’s own and it is awesome. The models are great, the planning is great, the building is great, the painting is amazing, the conversation flows easily and is massively entertaining, they’re not afraid to just have the sounds that are there present, it’s not over edited to focus on the jokes or the stories. It’s like two mates that just happen to have amazing lives and meet amazing people spending an afternoon. I reckon an easy 5 million people on YouTube would be all over that forever.

theaarondouglas: I don’t know who you are but….. FRAK YES!!!! Someone listen to this person. I would do this in a heartbeat.


Cheesysplattyburrito: I saw you in Save On in Victoria one day but you were just shopping and I didn’t want to bother you. Even though I loved BSG more than anything. Do you ever get annoyed by fan(atic)s?

theaarondouglas: Never! Always say hi.


Reaper7412: Do you think that Wes Chatam looks like you? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1434871/

theaarondouglas: He’s FAR too handsome.


Acanthophis: Did you enjoy killing Tori? ;)

theaarondouglas: I like the story piece of it but bristle at the violence of it, especially man vs woman. But Tory needed a comeuppance, death is the role the writers chose. To be fair though, grabbing her and ending her life was my idea. Written it was I bump her and she accidentally falls to her death below. I think taking the route of having Chief do it allowed him to have the straw that broke moment and then he could just leave them all behind.


IAMA_Drunk_Armadillo: Were you familiar with the Flash and Arrowverse prior to taking the role of the Turtle?

theaarondouglas: I am. All of those shows shoot in Vancouver and I have read for them several times. Just happy I got Turtle even if it precludes me from the other shows.


deadpa: Heya Aaron, This is the “brain tumor guy” you met in Houston courtesy of a mutual scientist friend by the name Paul. I met Mark Verheiden the following year and he texted you asking if you remembered me… I was curious as to how much you knew about the Dirk Gently story arc when you signed up… did you know the overreaching plot arc or were you simply learning what was going to happen as you read the script before filming? Also… when the U.S. implodes – can I crash at your place for a few nights if I can make it across the wasteland? cheers and welcome to reddit!

theaarondouglas: HEY!!! How are you? I knew what was generally happening through the end of the season.


furnatic: Crazily enough, the way you portray Chief isn’t super far from how the USN works. How did you work your way up to the role, get into character?

theaarondouglas: My favourite comment is ‘you’re just like a Chief I have or am serving with.’ Getting the military right was so very important to all of us. We had tech advisors we could seek out for advice. Ron and David set it up so well for us to succeed.


91236008615238976: I really enjoyed BSG even though the writers strike pretty much fucked over the series, would you have been willing to take a pay cut to satisfy the creative talent behind the scenes?

theaarondouglas: We supported our writers 100% and we all went out and stopped getting cheques so they could stay unified and get a better deal. I’m pleased they did as they are the reason the show was so good.


MsAnnThrope: Hi Aaron! I really, really love your work. I met you once at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. You signed a picture of you and Wil Wheaton for me (the one where he’s wearing a hockey jersey and looking all sad). I had him sign it the next time I saw him at a con; he thought it was funny and took a picture of it. My question is, did he ever send a picture of it to you like he said he would? Thank you for being here, and I hope you have a lovely day!

theaarondouglas: yes he did. Wil follows through on things he says he’ll do.


circular_file3000: Why do you have two first names? Anthrax rules! \m/

theaarondouglas: I blame my mom


dceighty8: Hey! What’s your favorite memory from living in creston? Least favorite? Do you ever go back?

theaarondouglas: Riding my dirt bike around the fields. The cold. I haven’t been in a long time.


[This question was removed by user or moderator]

theaarondouglas: Oh I am well aware that I am a bear… Hey, I rhymed… I think it is incredibly flattering and I live in the fullest of knowledge that we bears are sexy as frak!


sparkle_dick: Chief! Loved every minute of your performance in BSG, I think Galen was who many of us saw ourselves in the most. Especially loved getting to see you as Turtle on The Flash last year, sorry about the brain sucking :/ Do you still play hockey? Always liked to imagine you and a bunch of the pilots/crew freezing the hangar floors and skating around :D

theaarondouglas: I do but haven’t in a few months. Got a bad shoulder right now but am rehabbing and hope be back soon. Everytime I walk into a stage I always think, we could freeze this floor and go for a wheel….


JustALuckyShot: Your first and last name are my first and middle name, and that bothers me. Since this is an AMA, I have to ask a question. Who are you, and what do you want with my name?

theaarondouglas: To blame everything on you….


Jpoyner2: Who even r u?

theaarondouglas: I really have no idea.


GeodudeRocks790: Thanks for making me feel like a star! In 2014 you came to Salt Lake Comic Con. I was cosplaying as the Black Knight from Monty Python and you came rushing out of your meet-n-greet both to snap a photo with me. It feels pretty special to say that an actor wanted their picture to be taken with me. Thank you for that awesome experience. What’s your favorite Monty Python skit/movie?

theaarondouglas: Oh I remember that costume! You looked so great. Holy Grail for sure. Twit Olympics


Cant_stop-Wont_stop: Hey Chief, I’m a fighter aircraft maintainer. Thanks for making maintenance respected and badass. Every show with aircraft and fighter pilots always glamorizes them and completely glosses over the hard work that gets put in to make those pieces of shit fly. What was Edward James Olmos like off-camera? He always had such a fatherhood role in the show and he so easily dominated that role and completely oozes charisma, sitting down for a glass of whisky and a cigar with him sounds like exactly how he spends his time.

theaarondouglas: You have one badass job. Thank you for your service.


Mr_Celsius: I love that you had an email read on the Ricky Gervais podcast. Are you still a fan, and have you seen Karl Pilkington’s TV shows?

theaarondouglas: Those podcasts kept me laughing for a long time. Still do. I have not seen his shows…. yet…


thrashmtlfan: Hey Aaron, I’m such a huge fan of you, the Chief, and BSG. Whenever I’m having a hard time, I’ll try to get through a season and I’ll feel so much better. It’s always been my comfort show.
I notice you’re a fellow thrash metal fan too like me. Other than Anthrax, what other metal bands do you like?

theaarondouglas: That list is huge. Pick a band from 70’s and 80’s and they’re probably on my list.


in_my_atmosphere: How many times in your life has someone said “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.” to you?

theaarondouglas: Too many to count


shylowheniwasyoung: Greetings, Chief! I loved BSG, and I’m trying to convince my new husband to watch it with me- our first dates were spent watching sci-fi :) I’m from the San Juan Islands area, so my question is: where in the greater PNW is your favorite getaway or place to visit?

theaarondouglas: Tofino and QCL up in Haida Gwaii


Imjeffreydammit: Will there be a season two of Dirk Gently? How can I convince my local Drive In Theater to let me stream all of Battlestar Galactica for a few nights?

theaarondouglas: There is a season 2. They just finished filming and I cannot wait to see it. There are still Drive In’s around?


geekisphere: Do I have a question? I actually just wanted to say how great it was of you to show up at that tavern and hang out when last year’s Galacticon debacle happened in Seattle. I loved your work in BSG, and knowing that you’re in Dirk Gently gives me a reason to check it out! You are one cool dude – Cheers!

theaarondouglas: Thank you. That was a ton of fun. My friend Michelle worked her ass off to make that #FindChief event incredible. Rumour is she’s working on more ideas so stay tuned. I love Seattle


grumblecaking: I’ve lived under a rock my whole life. Two weeks ago I started watching BSG and it has easily become my favorite show of all time. I absolutely love Chief. I love his perseverance and honesty in spite of the rough hand he is always dealt. So many feels! I’m so late to the party, but it’s all I can talk about! I can’t wait to watch your other performances next! Thank you for doing this AMA! <3 What's your favorite cocktail?

 

theaarondouglas: Thank you. There are a few performances I am really proud of and some shows that are worth watching for sure. Fav cocktail…. Now this is a fun list to type. Hoppy IPA for beer Belvedere up with a twist- simple I know but delish Smoked Manhattan from Bar Chef in Toronto Vesper Martini from Opus in Toronto Scratch Margarita from my kitchen by me Nice heavy Cab Sauv. Old World Rioja Gin and tonic with Muddled cucumber My take on an old fashioned A super chilled Moscato on a hot deck


vijeno: What do you think of the last season of BSG?

theaarondouglas: I loved the way it ended. I think winding up where we did, losing who we did and especially the ending for Chief worked well for me. I wish we had more time to explore some of things that were just spoken but we were running out of eps.


ThisIsMarklar: Evening mate. What do you reckon to the new Maiden album?

theaarondouglas: Honestly gutted that I haven’t had a listen yet. My bad and something that will be rectified soon. what do you think of it?


vijeno: Well and to be fair, how about the FIRST season of BSG?

theaarondouglas: Needed more Chief… ;-) But 33 is one of the best episodes of TV ever.


kitikitish: What’s for dinner?

theaarondouglas: Not a clue. Someone is taking me somewhere but they haven’t said….. Is it a trap?


phyrestorm999: Hey, thanks for doing this. Chief was my favorite male BSG character. I’m sure you’re well aware that many fans were disappointed and/or annoyed by how the series was (or wasn’t really) resolved. What did you think at the time, and what do you think now?

theaarondouglas: I did and still do like the way Ron finished the show. I just mostly like my ending. ha


Tannekr: I’m sad to report I haven’t been able to sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” for Jennifer Halley yet. It’s still on my bucket list. Do you still annoy her with it and “Bad Day” whenever you meet?

theaarondouglas: HAHAHA Yes to both. Everyone needs to do this to her.


in-a-darkened-room: Did you steal anything from the Dirk Gently set? Like the fluffy jacket maybe, that looked good on you, though I’m a vegetarian too so if it was real yak I wouldn’t want to touch it.

theaarondouglas: I did not get anything from Dirk unfortunately. Maybe a pair of glasses but ….. you didn’t hear that from me. I WISH I could’ve gotten the jacket. I did make some cool M.O.M. shirts for Mike, Christian, Elijah and Sam. Have a few extra I am going to auction off for charity soon.


Oudeis16: What happened with the actor who played Billy?

theaarondouglas: He was too handsome for the show so he went to do his own handsome man show. His name is Paul Campbell and he works all the time. All around great guy. Hilarious as hell. We had Mary crying one day she was laughing so hard. We had to pause on a few takes because we couldn’t get it together. Then she yelled at us…..


mccoysuper: Can ask anything?

theaarondouglas: you just did


DerringerHK: You were the bomb in Dirk Gently, yo. Would you be excited for more Ricky Gervais Show stuff? I know you’re a big fan and you sent a letter in which was read out on air. I know I’d love the guys to do more stuff together

theaarondouglas: Thank you. I think Ricky is one of the most talented guys on the planet and I will watch/listen to anything he does, especially if it’s with Stephen and Karl.

I found a video clip on YouTube of the game him played. If you’re wondering how Aaron understood what was being said, he was wearing an ear piece and someone was translating for him.

Based on a true story, two-time Oscar® nominee Catherine Keener plays a small-town nurse Susette Kelo, who emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette’s battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse.

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #62 – November 10, 2016

#TBT. During the early days of filming on DIRK GENTLY, executive producer Arvind Ethan David tweeted a photo of a kitten on set. OMG A KITTEN!!!!! So I quickly texted Aaron and asked him to go find the kitten and take a photo with it. He said he didn’t know where it was. So I tweeted Arvind and asked him to (please) bring the kitten to Aaron and get a photo. The 1st photo is what Arvind tweeted. As you can see, most of Aaron’s face is cut out of the photo because back then it was a “secret” as to what Gordon Rimmer would look like (the vintage glasses, the slicked back greasy hair). But now that the show has aired, here’s the other two photos that Aaron took with the kitten, but in character as creepy Gordon Rimmer :) And for that “awwwww” moment … in that first photo, Aaron said that the kitten slept like than in his arms for about an hour.

On a dark and dreary evening, a divorced mother is taking her headstrong daughter to see her father however a broken down car on a deserted road will see them facing a greater threat than each other: something evil and hungry…

Bryan Bertino’s brilliant foray into monster movies is the kind of tense madness that genre fans can only dream of. Blessed with stellar camerawork, excellent acting and a scary as hell monster, this is the film to make you look under your car before you ride!

Kathy is a divorced mother with an alcohol problem. She loves her daughter but has lost her connection with her due to one too many drunk nights and missed school events. When she is forced to drive Lizzy to her father, the two find themselves in a car, simmering with anger. It’s not long before a wrong turn finds them traversing the deserted country roads and as luck would have it, their car breaks down. As they wait for help to arrive, the two are blissfully unaware of the evil lurking deep within the wood: The Monster is hungry and it will eat!

Set almost exclusively in one location, Bertino’s tight, tense exercise in monster horror scores real emotional points with its two excellent leads: Zoe Kazan and Ella Ballentine excel as the mother and daughter who love each other but can no longer tolerate the other and it’s through the clever use of flashbacks showing the deterioration of their relationship that Bertino creates the emotional impact needed for when the threat of the monster arrives.

It’d be foolish to not mention the titular monster: a beautiful, mainly practical creation that is sure to make those sfx-nuts in the audience drool at its’ frightening beauty. A ferocious beast whose motivations turn out to be more complex than you might think, it is as important a character as the mother & daughter duo and acts as a gnarling frightening heart of the film.

Monster movies never go out of fashion and Bertino’s effort is a stark reminder as to why: clever, frightening creations always lurk on the edges of celluloid, ready jump at us from the big screen and tear our faces off – the very reason why Beyond Fest is proud to present this original terror.

THE GOURMET DETECTIVE: DEATH AL DENTE: New Premiere Date – October 9

There’s a new premiere date for Aaron Douglas’ Hallmark movie GOURMET DETECTIVE: DEATH AL DENTE. It will now air on Sunday, October 9th at 9/8c.

iZOMBIE: Tweets

THERE ARE MONSTERS renamed to THE MONSTER. Premiere on DirecTV on October 6

Remember how Aaron had a beard and long homeless man hair last summer? (How could you forget? Ha). It was for the film THERE ARE MONSTERS. The movie has been renamed to THE MONSTER. And according to Bloody Disgusting, it will premiere on DirecTV on October 6 with plans for a theatrical run in November.

 

A24 has dated The Monster for a DirecTV premiere on October 6 with plans for a theatrical run in November.

Originally titled There Are Monsters, the film was directed by Bryan Bertino, who was the writer, producer, and director of The Strangers, as well as the criminally underrated Mockingbird.

Starring Scott Speedman (Underworld), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica), Ella Ballentine (The Captive), and Zoe Kazan (In Your Eyes, Fracture), The Monster focuses on a mother and daughter who are trapped and tormented by a ruthless creature.

A24 has been kicking ass having been behind The Witch, Green Room, Swiss Army Man and the forthcoming The Blackout’s Daughter.

Synopsis: From the creator of The Strangers comes a world of the lost; freezing, spitting needles of rain, thunderbolt lightning, hypothermic cold and disorientating utter darkness.

Mother and daughter trapped and tormented in a black forest by a screeching creature – it is unlike anything we have heard before. Not human. Not animal. Like a thousand horses, like a mother’s clamour, a baby’s wail, a father’s howl.

Their relationship at breaking point, 10-year-old Lizzy is all out of faith in her mother Kathy but tries to stay brave and fearless. Kathy, on the edge, barely keeping it together, knows that only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, can save her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness…

KICKSTARTER: Men of Science Fiction by Dennys Ilic (UPDATE)

Here’s another great photo of Aaron from his MEN OF SCIENCE FICTION photo shoot. And an update on the book for the kickstarter backers. Sorry that the release of the book was delayed because of Aaron’s photo shoot. But it will be well worth the wait :)

 

The Chief is in the Hanger!


Actor Aaron Douglas: Chief - Battlestar Galactica | Hemlock Grove | The Flash | Dirk Gently

 

Hey there to our amazing and patient MOSF backers!

We know its been a long time in-betwixt updates and a lot of you have been wondering what’s going on.

First of all our deepest apologies for the tardiness and lack of contact. There is so much that goes on with keeping on top of the Kickstarter machine not to mention the actual product one is trying to supply. Managing the campaign, book design and production is a quite complex maneuver in time-management!

Part of the delay in completing the process was honoring the large, limited perks. These shoot-related rewards were highly dependent on the actors availability and schedules which change like the wind. We are happy to say that the outstanding perk … “Shoot with the Chief” is now in-the-can and wrapped so we can move forward with the final stages of production.

This now involves receiving a test print of the book which should take about 10 days. If all is up to standard and approved by our team we go into full production and will start shipping within 6 weeks! We know it’s been a long wait and are dearly appreciative of your patience and commitment to our cause.

The exciting news is that after much work and meetings we have locked-in an amazing venue in the heart of Hollywood for the book-launch to which there are a number of backer-attendees via the “Launch Yourself” Perk. This is going to be a very special event as it will be held in a space which is to become a photographic art-gallery venture between director TJ Scott and Dennys Ilic. We cant wait for you to see it! There will be MOSF related exhibitions throughout the year so if you cant make the party, you’ll always be able to visit and check out our handsome subjects on the walls.

As the days count-down we’ll send updates including sneak peeks of the prototype book when it arrives in the next couple of weeks!

Thank you all again and much Love and Rockets!

Team MOSF

DIRK GENTLY: Aaron Douglas has been cast as a Series Regular

I spy with my little eye… Aaron Douglas amongst the cast photos for the new BBC America tv series DIRK GENTLY.

 

And here’s some info on DIRK GENTLY that I put together from press releases and news articles.

Dirk Gently is a comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric “holistic” detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they wend their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.

Dirk has strange, psychic abilities that enable him to sense invisible tangential connections. He’s taken these strange abilities and has invented a new profession for himself: that of “holistic detective”, a term that reflects his belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. However, his abilities have condemned him to a life very much alone – this master of universal interconnectedness has spent a life ironically without human connection.

Todd’s not a sidekick. Todd’s just flat out better than Dirk at a lot of things. He always attempts to solve matters with the fewest steps possible; despite being a compassionate, sweet, smarter-than-average man with biting wit, Todd often finds himself at the intersection of morally gray crossroads. Thus, his bad habits of lying and stealing have dire consequences that he can’t put off forever, even though he tries. Todd’s not a bad person. He’s not a good person yet, either, but he’ll get there. As Todd describes himself to Dirk Gently: “I am not your Watson, asshole. I am not available for side-kicking on something I am not involved with. I am my own messed up person with my own messed up problems”.

Dirk Gently, BBC America’s eight-episode series is based on the cult Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency novels by Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy author Douglas Adams. Written by Max Landis, the series is set to debut in fall 2016. Dean Parisot has come on board to direct the first two episodes. Stargate franchise veteran Robert Cooper has been named show runner.

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #59 – March 10, 2016

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×20: LAY DOWN YOUR BURDENS (PART 2). This episode aired 10 years ago on March 10, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: As the sun rises on Caprica, Starbuck and Anders discover that the Cylons have vanished. Brother Cavil declares it to be a miracle. But when the rescue team and civilian survivors return to the Galactica, the real reason for their survival becomes clear: Brother Cavil is a Cylon – his duplicate counseled Tyrol – and he has come here to deliver a message: The “Heroes of the Cylon” – Number Six and Sharon Valerii – have persuaded the Cylon leadership that trying to destroy the humans was an error. From now on the two civilizations will live apart, in peace.

At the same time, voting continues in the Colonial presidential election. President Roslin approaches Baltar and proposes that, whoever wins, colonization of the newly discovered planet should be postponed until further study is done. Baltar spurns her offer, so she confronts him about Number Six, but he remains unfazed by her accusation.

Panicked at the thought of Baltar taking control of humanity’s fate, Roslin instructs her aide to take all necessary steps to steal the election. The plot, however, is discovered by Lt. Gaeta, and Laura and Adama must choose between denying the will of the people and letting a man they suspect to be a Cylon collaborator take power. For Laura, the question is difficult, but the answer is never in doubt: she and Adama allow their plot to unravel. Baltar wins.

As President Baltar is sworn in, his Cylon lover, Gina, enacts a final vengeance against the fleet, detonating a nuclear warhead that destroys the Cloud Nine luxury liner. Despite the tragic loss of several ships, colonization of the planet, dubbed “New Caprica”, goes ahead over Adama’s objections.

Time passes; more and more of the fleet’s population relocates to the surface, leaving only skeleton crews aboard the Galactica and the Pegasus. Through it all, Adama remains uneasy; he anticipates the return of the Cylons. And a year later, his fears are borne out, as a Cylon invasion force jumps into the system and lands on New Caprica. Outflanked and overpowered, Adama and his son Lee order their battlestars out of the system, leaving the civilian colony defenseless as a Cylon occupying force arrives to announce the dawn of a new era….

Episode Synopsis: Aboard the Pegasus, Capt. Kara Thrace briefs a room full of Raptor crews and marines for a dangerous, volunteer-only mission to Caprica, to rescue the civilian survivors on the planet’s surface. Using information obtained from the captive Cylon Sharon, they’ve linked their Raptors’ navigation systems to the superior navigational capabilities of their captured Cylon heavy raider.

Meanwhile, in separate private quarters on the Galactica, President Roslin and Vice President Baltar each prepare notes for their first presidential debate, to be televised to the fleet. As Roslin memorizes her talking points, Baltar is hectored by Six’s religious exhortations to have faith that the election will unfold as “God intends.”

As the rest of the fleet watches the start of the presidential debate, Specialist Cally finds Chief Tyrol asleep under a Viper. She reaches out and wakes him, and he explodes to consciousness, reflexively lashes out and pummels her with a raging, brutal assault. Then he regains control, is horrified by what he’s done, and calls desperately for medical assistance.

After the first debate, President Roslin enjoys a commanding lead over Baltar in the polls. Then, as if in response to Baltar’s sarcastic plea for a miracle, one of the Raptors from the Caprica rescue mission returns early with stunning news: Because of a miscalculated hyperspace Jump, they’ve accidentally discovered a habitable planet, in a region of space that will hide them from the Cylons’ sensors.

On the advice of Tom Zarek, Baltar uses the planet’s discovery as a political wedge issue. He fans the civilian population’s desire for a new home, a safe home, an end to the constant running. Popular opinion swings sharply against Roslin, who is unprepared to give up the search for Earth.

Tyrol seeks counseling from a priest named Brother Cavil, who gets the chief to talk about the nightmares that have plagued him for weeks. Finally, Cavil helps Tyrol confront what’s really bothering him: Somewhere deep down inside, Tyrol is afraid that he might, like Sharon, really be a Cylon.

Light-years away on Caprica, the Colonial rescue mission reaches Sam Anders and his surviving resistance fighters. No sooner are Kara and Sam reunited, however, than they find themselves caught in the midst of a Cylon ambush.

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×18: DOWNLOADED. This episode aired 10 years ago on February 24, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: On Caprica, the reincarnated Number Six and Sharon Valerii are hailed as “Heroes of the Cylon” for the key roles they played in the near-destruction of the human race.

But these are tortured heroes. Six’s thoughts are haunted by Baltar, just as she haunts his thoughts on the Galactica. Sharon, meanwhile, has so fervently embraced her love for Tyrol and the fake human memories the Cylons created for her undercover mission, that the Cylon leadership – D’Anna and Doral – are thinking of “boxing” her: putting her consciousness into permanent cold storage, a living death.

Elsewhere on Caprica, the human resistance, under the leadership of Kara Thrace’s lover, Samuel Anders, is preparing to strike a savage blow, however futile it might ultimately be, against the Cylon occupation. As the fates of Caprica Sharon and Sam Anders converge, the future of two peoples hinges upon a cruel twist of fate.

On the Galactica, the captive Sharon gives premature birth to Hera, the child she conceived with Helo. As the infant fights for her life, she becomes the focus of intrigue. President Roslin and the Cylons hidden within the fleet scheme against each other for control of the newborn girl, and to determine whether she will become a symbol of hope … or a harbinger of human extinction.

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #56 – February 18, 2016

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×17: THE CAPTAIN’S HAND. This episode aired 10 years ago on February 17, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: On the Galactica, movement inside a cargo container draws the suspicion of Tyrol and his deck crew. When the box is opened, a stowaway is found inside, a pregnant 17-year-old girl named Rya Kibby. Once in custody, she asks to be brought to Doc Cottle.

Meanwhile, a pair of Raptors from the Pegasus, out on a training exercise in a region of intense radiation that interferes with communications, relay a garbled distress signal back to the Pegasus, under the command of the recently promoted engine room chief, Commander Barry Garner. Before Garner and his crew can verify the Raptors’ transmission, the Raptors jump away and vanish from the fleet’s dradis screens.

Ratcheting up the tension aboard the Pegasus is the running feud between Garner and flight training supervisor Capt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, a battle of wills that is only made worse by the arrival of Garner’s interim XO, Lee “Apollo” Adama, newly promoted to the rank of major.

Back on the Galactica, Rya Kibby’s desire to exercise her legal right to an abortion, and the revelation that Doc Cottle has been providing this service to women in the fleet for the past few months, becomes an incendiary political issue. The fleet’s pro-life Gemenon faction threatens to pull its support for President Laura Roslin unless she condemns the practice of abortion and makes it illegal.

Aboard the Pegasus, Commander Garner proves unequal to the responsibility of commanding a battlestar. He insists on mounting a quixotic rescue mission, despite Starbuck’s insistence that the signal the Raptors followed was almost certainly a Cylon trap. But when Garner disobeys a direct order from Admiral Adama and orders the Pegasus to go after its missing aircraft, it’s up to Apollo to take action and prevent the Pegasus and her crew from becoming the Cylons’ next victims.

As the abortion debate flares throughout the fleet, Roslin is forced to take a stand on the issue. Recognizing that every potential life counts in a shrinking human population, Roslin ponders an executive order that will create a wedge issue – one which Gaius Baltar is almost certain to exploit as he launches his own surprise bid for the Colonial presidency.

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×15: SCAR. This episode aired 10 years ago on February 3, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: The colonial mining ship Majahual has been working around the clock for a month extracting essential metals from an asteroid. The fleet has moved on, leaving Galactica behind to guard the miners from persistent Cylon raids.

The Viper pilots’ deadliest foe is an enemy Raider that they’ve nicknamed “Scar”, the combat-savvy reincarnation of countless Cylon warriors that boasts a growing list of human kills. Hiding out in the asteroid belt, Scar is a master of hit-and-run attacks that are decimating the war-weary Viper squadrons and forcing them to throw inexperienced replacement pilots into the fray.

The shaken pilots, led by Capt. Lee “Apollo” Adama, cover their distress at the mounting casualties by adopting a hardboiled demeanor. But neither booze nor a lustful encounter with Lee can vanquish the battle-fatigue or the demons that haunt Lt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace.

Tempers explode between Kara and Lt. Louanne “Kat” Katraine, who insists that Starbuck is dangerously off her game. A fierce competition ensues as to which of them will obliterate Scar.

But when Scar traps both Starbuck and Kat in an ambush, Kara must swallow her pride and support her brash young rival in a climactic dogfight against the Cylons’ top gun.

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×13: EPIPHANIES. This episode aired 10 years ago on January 20, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: Cancer-stricken President Laura Roslin lies near death in the Galactica’s sickbay. Still lucid and in command, she orders that the pregnancy of the Cylon spy Sharon be terminated, after inexplicable properties are discovered in a fetal blood sample.

Dr. Gaius Baltar, who, as vice president, is poised to assume the presidency upon Roslin’s death, protests that a half-human, half-Cylon child would make an ideal case study; the child’s father, Lt. Karl “Helo” Agathon, also is outraged by Roslin’s decision.

Admiral Adama is determined to carry out Roslin’s final decree until Baltar discovers that the hybrid fetus’s blood cells might possess fantastic healing properties.

Meanwhile, a secret group of Cylon sympathizers resorts to sabotage to demand that humanity sue for peace with the Cylons. Adama arrests their leader, Royan Jahee, but the group continues its violent revolt, bombing the tylium refinery ship, leaving the fleet short of fuel and vulnerable to enemy attack.

An even more ominous threat emerges when Baltar once again connects with Gina, a flesh-and-blood version of the Number Six who lives in his head. Gina has infiltrated the sympathizers’ ranks, in an effort to promote the Cylon agenda.

Baltar realizes that President Roslin doesn’t trust him to succeed her as president, and that she might, in fact, know of his affiliation with Caprica Six, who sabotaged the Colonial defenses. He discreetly arranges for a nuclear warhead to fall into the hands of Gina and the Cylon sympathizers, placing the entire fleet in mortal jeopardy.

Episode Synopsis: The battlestars Pegasus and Galactica go head-to-head with Cylon baseships in a battle that will change the face of the war. But for Lt. Kara Thrace, the real war is with her conscience, as she steels herself to carry out Commander Adama’s order to assassinate Admiral Cain.

When Lee Adama hears from Kara of the order, he confronts his father and challenges the morality and the legality of the order, but Commander Adama remains resolute. For the good of the fleet, he tells his son, Admiral Cain must be eliminated.

Meanwhile, in the Pegasus brig, Pegasus crewmembers brutally assault Galactica prisoners Chief Galen Tyrol and Lt. Karl Agathon, as revenge for the homicide of one of their officers. Only a timely intervention by the Pegasus’s XO halts the beating before it becomes fatal.

As the battle to destroy the Cylons’ “resurrection ship” intensifies, members of both battlestars’ crews are forced to decide how much of their humanity they are willing to sacrifice in order to survive. Ultimately, the fight that begins with heroic self-sacrifice ends in a white-knuckle test of two commanders’ courage, and their character.

THE FLASH: Aaron Douglas to play THE TURTLE

As previously announced, Aaron will be appear in the episode 2×10: Potential Energy of the television show THE FLASH.
Today, Entertainment Weekly announced that Aaron will be playing the villain, THE TURTLE.

 

The Flash casts Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron Douglas as The Turtle

Source: Entertainment Weekly

The Flash has tapped Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron Douglas to play the DC Comics villain The Turtle in the midseason premiere, EW has learned exclusively.

In the comics, the 1940s version of the villain used tricks of slowness in battle against Jay Garrick (played on The Flash by Teddy Sears), while his successor, a scientific genus who went by the name Turtle Man, created devices based on slowness to battle Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). On the show, the team hunts down this meta-human who can slow time itself.

“In a surprisingly funny twist, Cisco [Carlos Valdes] has actually been hunting The Turtle the entire series,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “To Barry’s surprise, everybody knows about Cisco’s hunt for the great white whale, which is The Turtle; he’s the only one who didn’t know about it. We love the idea that there was a villain out there that they knew about, but they just haven’t bothered to tell the audience about yet. All Barry wants to do is get faster, because if he can get faster, he can take on Zoom. He’s going up against a villain who is literally slowing him down. This is one of our best episodes coming back that we’ve ever done. It feels big and emotional.”

Eagle-eyed BSG fans spotted Douglas, who played cylon Galen Tyrol, a.k.a The Chief, in a recent promo.

The Flash returns Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 2×11: RESURRECTION SHIP (PART 1). This episode aired 10 years ago on January 6, 2006. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: Lt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace prevents a potentially deadly face-off between the Battlestars Galactica and Pegasus when she returns at the last second from her unauthorized mission in the blackbird stealth fighter, bearing stunning recon photos of the Cylons’ “resurrection ship.”

Unable to resist this tempting target, Commander William Adama and Admiral Helena Cain establish an uneasy truce as they agree to prioritize the destruction of the resurrection ship, and table their personal and professional conflicts – for now.

Adama remains distrustful, however, when he learns that Cain’s survive-at-all-costs attitude led her to order the Pegasus crew to abandon its own civilian fleet months ago. Disturbed by this news, President Laura Roslin suspects that, as soon as the resurrection ship is destroyed, Cain will jettison the Galactica’s civilian fleet, as well.

As he continues his power struggle against Cain, Adama must make an impossible decision, on the eve of a battle that could change the face of the Cylon war and decide the fate of the human race.

After his parents’ death, an affable bartender, Pierre Hunter (Anton Yelchin), returns to his childhood home where he falls for the enigmatic Stella (Zooey Deschanel), a stunning woman with an elusive past. Pierre finds himself pulled into a cat-and-mouse game with an incompetent yet destructive criminal (John Hawkes). Braced with a duffel bag full of cash and unyielding optimism, an unveiling mystery sets Pierre down a path that will determine all of their fates.

Aaron Douglas – CIBC Miracle Day

UPDATE: Aaron has had to cancel his appearance at the CIBC Miracle Day after receiving a last minute call to appear in an episode of ONCE UPON A TIME.

 

Aaron Douglas to join CIBC in raising millions for children’s charities at 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2015

Children’s Aid Foundation will participate in a special cheque presentation in support of Vancouver’s kids-in-need

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2015 /CNW/ – CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) invites the media to its trading floor tomorrow for the 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day – a day when traders and advisors donate their fees and commissions to children’s charities. All money raised stays in the community benefitting local organizations like the Take a Hike Foundation and the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Foundation.

Last year, CIBC Miracle Day raised more than $5.5 million for more than 550 children’s charities across Canada and to mark this year’s celebration a special cheque presentation – representing a $1 million commitment made possible by Miracle Day – will be made to the Children’s Aid Foundation.

WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

WHO:
Aaron Douglas, actor
• Children’s Aid Foundation, Valerie McMurty, Chief Executive Officer
• Big Sisters of Lower B.C. Lower Mainland, Fleur Cooper, Manager

WHERE: 400 Burrard Street, 12th Floor

WHAT: Special guests and not-for-profit organizations join CIBC to celebrate the 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day.

In 1984, a Wood Gundy office in Toronto came up with an idea that would ultimately change the lives of children across Canada.

The late Tim Miller and the investment advisors at the 42nd Street branch – named after the famous 42nd Street in New York and located on the 42nd floor of the Head Office – decided to donate their commissions for one day of business to children’s charities. For people who count on commissions for their livelihood, giving them up – even if only for one day – was a sacrifice. However, the branch’s Investment Advisors were fully supportive of the initiative.

The branch called it Miracle on 42nd Street and raised $163,935 in that first year. While CIBC Miracle Day has grown expeditiously, the original objective has stayed the same: Investing in the lives of children to help prepare them for the future and to make sure that tomorrow’s citizens are backed by a strong portfolio of skills and support.

LITTLE PINK HOUSE: Aaron Douglas Lands Supporting Role

Aaron Douglas has joined the cast of the film LITTLE PINK HOUSE, based on the book of the same name by Jeff Benedict. Aaron will be playing the Governor.

The film follows the true story of Susette Kelo (played by Catherine Keener), a nurse from a small Connecticut town, who stands up to politicians that want to bulldoze her home and sell off the cleared land to a billion-dollar pharmaceutical company. Jeanne Tripplehorn will play Susette’s neighbor Charlotte Wells who is leading the charge to bulldoze. And Callum Keith Rennie will play the heroine’s love interest, Tim LeBlanc. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline).

Here’s a great video interview with writer and director Courtney Balaker where she explains the story of the Little Pink House. At the 1:30 time stamp they talk about and show a photo of John G. Rowland, the Governor of Connecticut. He is the real life Governor that Aaron’s character is based on. But be warned, because it’s a true story there are spoilers in the video of the outcome.

EDIT: And here’s the book description on Amazon …..

Suzette Kelo was just trying to rebuild her life when she purchased a falling down Victorian house perched on the waterfront in New London, CT. The house wasn’t particularly fancy, but with lots of hard work Suzette was able to turn it into a home that was important to her, a home that represented her new found independence. Little did she know that the City of New London, desperate to revive its flailing economy, wanted to raze her house and the others like it that sat along the waterfront in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and fourteen neighbors flat out refused to sell, so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes, launching one of the most extraordinary legal cases of our time, a case that ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court.

THERE ARE MONSTERS: Original Movie Poster starring Elisabeth Moss

While doing some ‘googling’ on the movie (THERE ARE MONSTERS) that Aaron filmed back in July, I came across the original movie poster. Elisabeth Moss was supposed to be in it?!?!? I have no idea why she didn’t end up being in it (I guess I could google that). But OH.MY.FRAKKING.GODS Aaron could have been in a movie with PEGGY OLSON!!!!

THERE ARE MONSTERS: Movie Poster & Synopsis

Synopsis:
From the creator of The Strangers comes a world of the lost; freezing, spitting needles of rain, thunderbolt lightning, hypothermic cold and disorientating utter darkness.

Mother and daughter trapped and tormented in a black forest by a screeching creature – it is unlike anything we have heard before. Not human. Not animal. Like a thousand horses, like a mother’s clamour, a baby’s wail, a father’s howl.

Their relationship at breaking point, 10-year-old Lizzy is all out of faith in her mother Kathy but tries to stay brave and fearless. Kathy, on the edge, barely keeping it together, knows that only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, can save her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness…

Cast:
Zoe Kazan … Kathy
Ella Ballentine … Lizzy
Scott Speedman … Roy
Aaron Douglas … Jesse
Christine Ebadi …Leslie Williams

THERE ARE MONSTERS: Scott Speedman Discovers There Are Monsters

Scott Speedman Discovers There Are Monsters
Joining Bryan Bertino’s new horror
By: Owen Williams
Date: August 19, 2015

Having himself played a hybrid of a vampire and a werewolf in the Underworld films, Scott Speedman is well placed to join the cast of There Are Monsters. Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) is directing, and has also signed up Aaron Douglas, Zoe Kazan and Ella Ballentine for the cast.

Details so far are sketchy, but the plot of the film centres on “a mother and daughter trapped and tormented by a ruthless creature”. It’s probably safe to assume that Kazan and Ballentine are, respectively, the mother and daughter. But all we know about Speedman and Douglas are that their characters are called Roy and Jesse. Do either of those sound like the name of a ruthless creature?

Bertino brought us the impressive The Strangers in 2008, but this is only the second time he’s directed since, following Mockingbird, which went straight to DVD here in the UK. He wrote an interesting-sounding Strangers sequel which never escaped from development Hell. But he also produced Oz Perkins’ February, Akiva Goldsman’s Stephanie, and remains attached to Grim Night, Scarecrow, and a number of other self-penned screenplays. So he’s keeping busy.

There Are Monsters is one of Bertino’s own scripts, and shooting is currently underway in Ottawa, Canada. It’s expected to see the light of day next year.

THERE ARE MONSTERS: Scott Speedman, Aaron Douglas Join Bryan Bertino’s ‘There Are Monsters’

This is the movie that Aaron was filming in Ottawa a few weeks ago. This role is what he had the long hair & beard for.

Ella Ballentine, Aaron Douglas and Scott Speedman

 

The horror film focuses on a mother and daughter who are tormented by a ruthless creature.

Scott Speedman (Underworld), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica) and Ella Ballentine (The Captive) have joined horror film There Are Monsters, which will also star Zoe Kazan (Olive Kitteridge).

The movie focuses on a mother and daughter who are trapped and tormented by a ruthless creature.

Bryan Bertino, the writer, director and producer behind The Strangers and Mockingbird, is helming There Are Monsters. Production on the Atlas Independent, an affiliate company of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment, and Unbroken Pictures project is underway in Canada.

William Green and Aaron Ginsburg of Atlas Independent will produce with Adrienne Biddle of Unbroken Pictures. Atlas Entertainment’s Richard Suckle will serve as an executive producer alongside Sonny Mallhi.

There Are Monsters will be distributed by A24 in the U.S. and is set to release in 2016.

Speedman’s recent work includes The Captive, starring alongside current co-star Ballentine and The Vow where he acted alongside Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. He currently has Animal Kingdom coming up with Jack Weary and Finn Cole. He’s repped by UTA and Circle of Confusion.

Douglas, who starred on Battlestar Galactica, is currently on A&E’s original series The Returned and is set to write and star in Infrared alongside Joseph Gatt. He’s repped by Gersh.

Ballentine is currently filming TV movie Anne of Green Gables in which she stars in the the titular role. She’s repped by Noble Caplan Abrams.

iZOMBIE: Trailer for Aaron’s episode

Here is the trailer for Aaron’s episode of iZOMBIE (1×08: Dead Air) which is airing next week (Tuesday May 5, 2015) at 9/8c on THE CW.

 

Here is a shorter trailer. Aaron is in this (same scene from the above trailer) but he doesn’t get any dialogue.

 

UPDATE: And here is the Inside The Episode video clip for Aaron’s episode. There’s no mention of Aaron or his character (radio host Chuck Burd) in the video clip but the episode’s dead character of the week is played by Erica Cerra. She is best known for playing Jo Lupo on EUREKA, but for BSG fans, you may remember that she played Maya. Maya adopted and was raising baby Hera on New Caprica (http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Maya).

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #43 – April 9, 2015

For #TBT I’ve been posting screen caps of Aaron from S1 episodes of BSG on the 10 year anniversary of when they aired. The 10 year anniversary for S2 episodes doesn’t start until mid July. So until then enjoy screen caps for some of Aaron’s movie/television roles. This week’s #TBT is of Aaron as MOAC in the STARGATE SG-1 episode 3×20: Maternal Instinct. This episode was the first acting job that Aaron ever booked.

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #42 – April 2, 2015

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 1×13: Kobol’s Last Gleaming (Part 2). This episode aired 10 years ago on April 1, 2005. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: When Commander Adama learns that Kara disobeyed orders and Jumped to Caprica on orders from President Roslin, he demands the president’s resignation, with the implied threat of a military coup. Roslin refuses his demand and sparks a confrontation.

As civil war simmers in the fleet, the conflict on Caprica heats up. Kara completes her mission for Laura: She finds the Arrow of Apollo that, according to prophecy, will lead the fleet to Earth. No sooner does she pick it up, however, than she is thrust into a battle to the death with Number Six.

Meanwhile, Adama sends Sharon and Racetrack in a Raptor equipped with a Cylon transponder, to fire a nuclear warhead that will destroy the base ship. But when the missile release jams, Sharon lands the Raptor deep inside the base ship, to deliver the warhead manually.

Once outside her ship, however, Sharon is greeted by dozens of Sharon avatars, all Cylons like her, welcoming her home. She retreats, but is told that she and her fellow Cylons will meet again. She and Racetrack escape the base ship, which explodes.

Mission accomplished, Sharon returns home to the Galactica. She warmly accepts Commander Adama’s thanks and praise for a job well done, then she coldly shoots him, point-blank, in the chest..

#TBT. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 1×12: Kobol’s Last Gleaming (Part 1). This episode aired 10 years ago on March 25, 2005. #BSG10YEARS.

Episode Synopsis: While flying a supply patrol, Crashdown and Sharon Valerii discover a bountiful planet that can support human life. Indeed, it might be Kobol, the legendary “home of the gods.” The discovery prompts Commander Adama to send a ground team to investigate; it also gives new life to President Roslin’s belief that she is a tool of destiny and that this discovery, like her rapidly spreading cancer, is part of an ancient prophecy.

However, things are not well on the Galactica. Gaius Baltar, the new vice president, has a one-night stand with Kara Thrace and finds himself at odds with both Lee Adama and a deeply jealous Number Six.

Meanwhile, both Cylon Sharons struggle with their dual natures. On Galactica, she contemplates suicide when she realizes her programming will lead her to betray her comrades; on Caprica, she tries to convince Helo that her love for him is stronger than her loyalty to the Cylons.

After a Raptor carrying Vice President Baltar is shot down over Kobol, Commander Adama must find a way to destroy the Cylon base ship that guards the planet before he can send a rescue team. He orders Kara to fly a dangerous mission against the base ship, using the captured Cylon Raider, but Kara makes an unauthorized Jump home to Caprica instead, abandoning Adama and the stranded Raptor crew..

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #40 – March 19, 2015

Today’s #TBT photo was supposed to be screen caps from the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 1×11: Colonial Day. But the Chief only had a blurry blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene in that episode (http://aarondouglasfans.com/?p=671). So instead here’s screen caps of Aaron being all badass as Pierce in his 2nd episode of SMALLVILLE (7×14: Traveler). This episode aired 7 years ago.

CONVENTION CANCELLATION: CoastCon 38

Unfortunately Aaron has had to cancel his appearance at the CoastCon 38 convention in Mississippi this weekend (March 20-22).

THE RETURNED: Praise from Critics (Video)

Here’s one of those “PRAISE FROM THE CRITICS” videos/trailers for THE RETURNED. That’s Aaron at timestamps 00:19 (smashing his head on the desk in the police interrogation room as Nikki, Victor and Julie look on) and at 00:22 (his brother Adam hitting from behind with a shovel).

iZOMBIE: Premiers tonight (Tuesday, March 17)

iZOMBIE premiers tonight (Tuesday, March 17, 2015) at 9/8c on THE CW. Aaron will be in episode 8 (Dead Air). If they keep airing a new episode each week then his episode will air May 5th. But once I know the exact date I’ll post reminders as it gets closer to the air date.

CONVENTION APPEARANCE: CoastCon 38 (Reminder)

Aaron (Moac) and Tony Amendola (Bra’tac) will be at the CoastCon 38 convention in Mississippi this weekend (March 20 – 22).

UPDATE: Unfortunately Aaron had to cancel his appearance at the con this weekend :(

THE RETURNED: 1×01: Camille (Previously On)

Here is the PREVIOUSLY ON video for last week’s episode of THE RETURNED (1×01: Camille). Aaron’s 2-second scene from the episode made it into the clip :) Episode 2 airs TONIGHT (Monday, March 16th) at 10/9c after Bates Motel on A&E.

THE RETURNED: 1×02: Simon (Trailer)

The 2nd episode of Aaron’s new tv show THE RETURNED airs TONIGHT (Monday, March 16th) at 10/9c after Bates Motel on A&E. Much more screen time for Aaron in this episode :)

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: The Chief’s final scene is not on Netflix

This was brought up in the comments on the previous thread so I thought I’d repeat it here for those of you that didn’t know. If you watched BATTLESTAR GALACTICA on Netflix, you missed the Chief’s final scene. You can watch it (and the comparisons) at the link below.

http://aarondouglasfans.com/?p=15999

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Was there a storyline that you didn’t like?

Was there a storyline on BSG that you didn’t like?

For me (and I’m sure many others), BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was/is the greatest tv series ever. For me, BREAKING BAD is a close second. But even though we have so much love for BSG, was there ever a storyline that you hated or thought was ridiculous?

For me it was the Chief and Cally as a couple. That was absolutely ridiculous. They were more brother and sister than lovers. Cally and Jammer should have been together. If you ever do a rewatch, pay attention to the two of them. And I don’t care what the shows says, Jammer was the real father of Cally’s baby, not Hotdog. Remember how Jammer was the one that helped Cally escape on New Caprica? That’s because he was her lover and her baby daddy.

So what storyline didn’t you like? Was it Starbuck and Apollo not ending up together? Or was it “what the hell was Starbuck?”. Sound off in the comments below. You can be as petty or as silly as you want, we’re just having fun :)

#TBT (Throwback Thursday) #39 – March 12, 2015

#‎TBT‬. Screen caps of the Chief in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode 1×10: THE HAND OF GOD. The Chief was only in this episode for about 8 seconds so I didn’t have enough screen caps for the #TBT image this week so I filled the last 3 spots with behind-the-scenes photos of Aaron and Nicki Clyne (Cally) from that episode. This episode aired 10 years ago on March 11, 2005. ‪#‎BSG10YEARS‬.

Episode Synopsis: As its fuel supply dwindles, the fleet must seek out a new supply of tylium ore or risk becoming sitting ducks to any Cylon attack. A recon patrol finds an asteroid full of the fuel, but there’s a catch: the Cylons have found it first and established a heavily guarded refining plant.

Kara devises a plan: Jump three decoy ships near the asteroid; when the Cylons attack, destroy their bases, leaving them stranded in space. It’s a bold tactic, but it will take luck, skill and daring to pull it off.

Meanwhile, President Roslin begins to hallucinate as a result of the chamalla she’s taking to combat her breast cancer. When she consults Elosha, a priestess who has used Chamalla to induce visions, she learns that her circumstances fulfill a 3,600-year-old prophecy.

On Cylon-occupied Caprica, Sharon and Helo’s flight from the Cylon overseers suddenly becomes more complicated when Sharon discovers she’s pregnant.
