MESSAGE FROM AARON: August 19, 2009

DJ Otzi

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

I was tooling around the internet this morning looking for a fan compilation of Tyrol and I came across this video called Anton Sur Tyrol by DJ Otzi. I started to watch it and was stunned 30 seconds in. It is SO much fun.
DJ Otzi is Austrian, I have never heard of him, I have no idea what he is saying but he is just great and I am loving this music.
Everyone go check out DJ Otzi, I am sure there are many of you in Europe who have known about him for years but he is new to me.
Have fun with it.

CONVENTION APPEARANCE: DragonCon 2009 (Update)

I was just telling Aaron how there were a few comments on his fanpage on facebook from people thinking they were going to see him at DragonCon (at guest panels, photos sessions, autograph signings) and that I had to make a post on there letting them know he was going as a ‘fan’ not a ‘guest’. Obviously all of us here already knew that. But for anyone that doesn’t read this LJ comm, they’re still under the impression that he will be there as a guest because the D*C website lists him as one.

He doesn’t want to disappoint anyone that was hoping to meet him so he said that he might get a table for one day for a few hours just to sign for people who want something.

I’m not sure how the announcement will be made regarding what day and time he will be signing. Maybe at one of the BSG guest panels or on one of those daily DragonCon update pages (not sure what the official name of that is) that you can pick up at the info booths. Or maybe it will just have to be pure luck of stumbling across him in the ‘hall of fame’.

THE BRIDGE: still waiting for an air date

Sigh. Still no news on when The Bridge will premiere. The below is a snippet from an article in the Toronto Sun.

CBS announces new game show
By: Bill Harris
Date: August 3, 2009

In other CBS news, network president of entertainment Nina Tassler said CBS has “no plans right now” to be involved in the production of more new episodes of CTV’s Flashpoint, but added, “we certainly can if we want to.”

CBS has tentative plans to air nine episodes of Flashpoint that already are in the can at mid-season, but Flashpoint was taken off the CBS fall schedule when the network stole Medium from NBC.

As for another upcoming CTV-CBS series, The Bridge, Tassler said “we don’t know when yet,” referring to a possible air date on the U.S. network.

THE BRIDGE: Canada AM Interview

Today (July 22, 2009) Aaron was interviewed by Canada AM. The interview will air on the same day that THE BRIDGE premieres.

The reason the interview was filmed early is because they wanted to have the interview with him on the set. Aaron finishes filming on August 13th and after that date the sets will be taken down and stored away.

So that’s another unaired interview with Aaron that we need to keep an eye out on.
The list so far is … E Talk, ET Canada and Canada AM.

San Diego Comic-Con 2009

A few of you have emailed me asking if Aaron will be attending San Diego Comic-Con later this month (because there will be a BSG guest panel for ‘The Plan’). I’ve just checked with Aaron and he says that he won’t be at SDCC as a ‘guest’ or a ‘fan’.

MESSAGE FROM AARON: July 8, 2009

Hey All

How is everyone?

I am still in Toronto doing 14 hours a day 5 days a week working on The Bridge. It is looking really good and will be out sometime in the fall. I will keep you posted with new information when I get it, particularly a start date.

CBS has been wonderful and tremendously supportive and I could not be happier being a part of the CBS family.

I hope you are all very well and yes I am still planning on going to DC this year with my brother and friends but this year I am purely a fan, no guest stuff for me. I miss out on too much fun when I have to do all of the guest stuff. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I am still among the living and to say hi.

Be well

The * (highlighted in yellow in the below screen cap) reads * Denotes NEW Fall show.
‘New Fall show’ not a ‘mideseason show’?!?!? Fingers crossed this isn’t just a typo.

Hmmmmm. I’m totally confused. He told me he was going as a ‘fan’ not a ‘guest’. I guess something changed in the last 2 weeks. Oh well, all that really matters is that he’s going to be there. Yay!!!!

UPDATE: Aaron has confirmed that he will not be attending DragonCon as a guest…

It was a mistake.

I will be there but not in a guest capacity.

I will not be signing or doing panels.

I hope to host a very specific party, we are working on details but other than that I will just be wandering around with the lads.

INTERVIEWS – AUDIO INTERVIEWS: It’s All Geek To Me – interview with Aaron from Dallas All-Con 2009 (March 2009)

NO HEROICS: Aaron to guest star

Today (April 3, 2009) Aaron will be filming a guest spot on the pilot episode for a new sitcom for ABC called No Heroics. It’s a small role as the father of the birthday girl.

Below is some information about the show from the Hollywood Reporter…

ABC picks up comedy pilot ‘No Heroics’ (February 10, 2009) – The network has greenlighted a single-camera comedy pilot based on the British series. Written by “Will & Grace” alum Jeff Greenstein and original show creator Drew Pearce, “No Heroics” is about a group of superheroes with less-than-formidable powers who hang out at a bar. Greenstein and Pearce are exec producing with Andrew Zein of Tiger Aspect, which produces the British series for ITV.

Freddie Prinze Jr. cast in ‘No Heroics’ (March 18, 2009) – Freddie Prinze Jr. has been tapped to star on ABC’s comedy pilot “No Heroics.” ABC Studios’ “Heroics” revolves around four B-list superheroes — three of them played by Paul Campbell, Eliza Coupe and Arielle Kebbel — living among us. Canadian Campbell plays the leader of the group, Pete aka Chillout, a Canadian-born superhero who can freeze small objects. Prinze will play his nemesis and tormentor Bradley aka Ultimatum, the personification of everything Pete despises and secretly wishes he could be. An A-list superhero, Bradley is a handsome, cocky and egotistical Alpha male who has all the women and fame and money a guy could want.

I wonder if Aaron and Paul Campbell (Billy Keikeya on BSG) will get any scenes together.


Update (April 12, 2009): The below is from TheFutonCritic.com

“No Heroics”
Half Hour Single Camera

CAST
· Arielle Kebbel as Sandy/Slamazon
· Eliza Coupe as Callie/Crossfade
· Freddie Prinze Jr. as Bradley/Ultimatum
· Josh Gad as Horseforce (Guest Star)
· Paul Campbell as Pete/Chillout
· Tom Riley as Nigel/Brainstorm

CREDITS
Production Companies: ABC Studios, Tiger Aspect Productions
Executive Producers/Writers: Drew Pearce, Jeff Greenstein
Executive Producer: Andrew Zein
Director: Andy Flemming

Welcome to a world where there are Super Heroes and some uh, well… Not-So-Super Heroes. And when you’re on the Super Hero D-list, being a caped crusader isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Take Pete A.K.A. Chillout who may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but can he can make ice cubes in a single malt scotch. At least he’s a hit at parties. Nigel A.K.A. Brainstorm can read your mind… that is if he’s really, really close to you and he’s in the mood. Other than that, his super powers are limited to lightning-fast insults – he is British, after all. Then there’s Callie A.K.A. Crossfade. Okay, sure, she’s cool, but her days as a Super Hero child star have left her bitter and jaded. Sandy A.K.A. Slamazon is crazy strong. Unfortunately, powerful women scare men, so she hasn’t had a decent date in years. Never before has a group of super heroes been such a bunch of super zeroes. Together, they hang out at The Watchtower, a bar for super-types where they hurl insults at more successful heroes, like Bradley A.K.A. Infinitum, a square-jawed, square-brained super stud.

Based on the hit British series, No Heroics is a single-camera comedy adapted by Jeff Greenstein (Will and Grace) along with Andrew Zein and original show creator Drew Pearce. These four heroically-challenged friends may not have much going for them, but you never know when we might need them.

CONVENTION CANCELLATION: FEDCON 18

Unfortunately Aaron has had to cancel his appearance at the Fedcon 18 convention in Germany next month due to the filming of his new tv show THE BRIDGE in Toronto.

ASK THE CHIEF (Part 3): Update

Aaron left the following comment in the Ask The Chief thread …..

need a little time

Hey kids, I am going to get to this but please just give me a bit of time.
I have a million things going on right now and on top of it I am going to Seattle for a con this weekend then I am moving to Toronto next week for the new show.

I will answer all of these but it is going to take a bit.

Thanks for understanding.

love you all

Obviously, don’t reply to his comment in the ‘Ask The Chief’ thread because that’s just for the Q&A questions. I’ve just reposted it here so you guys know why the questions haven’t been answered yet. But feel free to reply in this thread if you want to respond. Although I’m not sure if he’ll get the chance to read them. But it’s the thought that counts :)

EDIT: Because I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before …. The move to Toronto for THE BRIDGE is only temporary. He’ll be there from April 10th – mid August.

The trailer that I posted yesterday for the BSG Movie THE PLAN says that it will air “this fall”.

The BSG SciFi.com website says November 2009. We have to wait 8 months? :(

Looking on the bright side … THE BRIDGE starts airing on July 9th. If they play all 13 episodes in a row then we’ll have Aaron on our tv screens once a week from July 9th – October 11th. And then there’s THE PLAN in November.

WEBSITE UPDATES: March 10, 2009

John McFetridge who is one of the story editors on Aaron’s new tv show THE BRIDGE has very kindly given me permission to do a copy and paste of his blog entries that mention THE BRIDGE. From what John says in his blogs, it looks like the MOW that Aaron filmed in July and August of last year will be become episodes 1 and 2 of THE BRIDGE. And as we all know, that will start airing in the USA and Canada on July 9th, 2009.

EMISSARY: Website & Teaser

There is now a website for EMISSARY where you can view the teaser trailer. Aaron isn’t in the teaser as he hasn’t filmed any scenes as yet. This is the teaser that was shown at New York Comic Con 2009 last week.

MESSAGE FROM AARON: February 11, 2009

hey kids

NYCC hey??!?!!?

Super fun. For those of you who I met, thank you for coming by, it was a great time.

I want to thank Canada Fan Expo for having me at the table for a couple of days and also for sitting me beside the incredibly beautiful, amazingly sweet, absolutely lovely and make my heart skip a beat Marina Sirtis.

If you are interested in a great con, make the trip to Toronto for Fan Expo in late August.

I just have to say that the guy running the tables at NYCC was a total jackass in the way he dealt with Yuri and I and kicked us off of our table at the end of our signing. He was also rude and physically pushy with the fans that were left in my line. Yuri and I were furious and if you were one of those fans I would like to apologize for that treatment. I will not be working with that ass again. I thought I was at a creation con (eeeeew I cannot believe I said it out loud) for a moment there.

Anyway, enough of that.

I love NY. What a great town.

Most of you know my dealings with Quantas Air and Air Canada. I would like to add US Airways to this list. Also I would like to add one customer service representative, the woman at the counter of the 9 pm flight from Salt Lake to Seattle on Tuesday January 20th (although the only service she provided was rudeness, unwillingness to be helpful, unprofessionalism and an awful attitude) from Delta. Get a new job ma’am, you clearly are unhappy in this one.

On the good list goes the incredible people who worked the gate of my SkyWest flight out of Salt Lake that was cancelled. They were so professional and helpful.

And….if you have to fly anywhere and Cathay Pacific flies anywhere near to where you are going…GET ON THAT PLANE. I have never experienced quality of service, friendliness of staff, a better meal, a more comfortable plane, better entertainment or a more positive overall experience than whenever I fly Cathay Pacific. They set the standard for what an airline should be. The rest pale…except Alaska Air and Westjet… they are pretty frakkin good too.

That is my rant and my news for today.

be well

As previously reported, Aaron will be attending Dallas All-Con next month as a Guest of the 501st Star Garrison. I know that some of you have been asking if this means he’ll be doing a panel and autographs. The following was posted on the Dallas All-Con news blog ….

Aaron Douglas Update

“It is my pleasure to announce that due to several generous donations, WE HAVE raised the money needed to bring Aaron Douglas back to All Con! The flight was purchased today. Aaron is flattered that we have done this. He has agreed to do at least one panel, will be signing autographs, and will be interacting with the members and guests at the revamped Imperial Gladiators (formerly Stormtrooper Olympics).

LaRose (Saw 3), Yuri Lowenthal (Gurren Lagann), and Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica). All will be appearing on the Emissary panel.

MESSAGE FROM AARON: January 7, 2009

My old band

Well, kind of……

I was in a band in high school and two of the guys have gone on to be very successful in the business community and have stayed together making music and their first album is FRAKKING awesome!!

They are Desert Radio. The album is Asleep At The Wheel.

It is a real rockabilly hard edge CD and is a must buy.

It is on itunes but has naughty language so be careful.

If you buy the CD, bring it to a con and show me, I will write whatever you want on the picture you choose. ha

They do have a MySpace page so go check em out. No, these are not the Town Pants and the music could not be more different.

If I have my way, a Desert Radio song called James Dean will make it into my new show.

And they are just about to start recording the 2nd album so if you get this one you can say that you were listening to these guys WAY before anyone else.

Check them out…. Desert Radio…. My boys are Patrick Aldous and Scott Larson…. two very close friends from high school and now.

If you don’t, I will not reveal the 5th Cylon, I will send Heavy Raiders to your houses and I will pull some strings at Scifi and have the final eps begin airing in 2014, although they might just decide to do that anyway…..

thanks kids

Someone is bugging me….

to do another QandA online for all my peeps.

If you guys want to do that I have some time over the next couple of days. I will check back here from time to time and answer what I can.

Just know that if you ask anything about anything unaired it will go unanswered, I simply cannot talk about the rest of the show.

I will say one thing about it, it is amazing! You will love it so watch it as soon as possible.

Also, I did a journal of my last month on BSG, shooting the last 2 episodes, life on set, life away from set, what we had for lunch, etc… Does anyone think there will be any interest in reading that after the show has completely aired?

Let me know.

Enjoy the show kids

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL: Aaron’s character recast

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL was released in theatres today (December 12, 2008). But don’t expect to find Aaron in the movie. Fans that have already seen the movie are reporting back that Aaron isn’t in it and his name is not in the end credits. Aaron had previously mentioned in an interview that he believed that his role had been recast and reshot and it appears to be true.

The message below is from Aaron ….

DESS

I am not in this film. do not go looking for me.

I was shot in the helicopter scene, recast a week later and it was reshot without me.

I have no idea why I am still in the credits but …. there you go.

I guess I just can’t act well enough for FOX Films. Too bad.

be well.

AD

Apparently I am not in the credits of the film.

Good.

This is a profoundly important day.

My heart, thoughts, support and genuine gratitude and appreciation goes out to all the men and women in the armed forces.

I think of you everyday but especially on this day.

I think of you and the men and women you have served with and hold dear in your hearts and minds.

It can never be overstated the work you men and women do, selflessly, courageously, honorably and sometimes to the ultimate end.

You are my heroes.

Thank you thank you thank you

Aaron

MESSAGE FROM AARON: November 5, 2008

My Angels

So there I am, at Dragoncon, the greatest of all American conventions, when suddenly before me is a gaggle of gorgeous giggling girls (say that 10 times really fast) who have come to wish me happy birthday. I am presented with a gift, not just a gift but something so wonderful, so special, so well thought out and planned that I am still speechless when I think about it, use it and show it off to my friends who invariably respond with, “No frakkin’ way!”

My Angels, Aaron’s Angels, gave me an iPod touch inscribed with, “Happy Birthday Aaron Love Aarons Angels XOX” for my birthday.

Ladies, and gentleman, thank you thank you thank you.

I am still learning the ins and outs of it and the one I was presented with in Atlanta would not interface with my ….Cylon…ness so I had to return it but the new one has just arrived, inscribed as the last, and it is AWESOME!!!!

I get nothing done all day now though because I sit around and play SLOTS on the thing… ha

You all know who you are and I am so very grateful to have you all in my life, from all over the world. You are all very special to me and although I have left Scif-fi, at least for a while, I will never leave my sci-fi fans and especially my Angels.

Thank you all so very much.

Your love and attention means the world to me. I really value all of you and your place in my life.

Thank you my Angels.

Aaron

THE BRIDGE: Press Release

As mentioned previously, THE BRIDGE has been picked up and will be made into a tv series. Below is the official press release from CTV …..

CTV Crosses THE BRIDGE: New Drama Series Joins CTV’s Original Production Slate

– Compelling and provocative cop drama executive-produced by Toronto Police veteran Craig Bromell –

 

Toronto, Ontario (November 3, 2008) – CTV announced today the order of a new one-hour original Canadian drama series, THE BRIDGE. Based on the insights of veteran insider and outspoken former Toronto police union head Craig Bromell, CTV has ordered 11, one-hour episodes, following the production of a two-hour pilot shot in Toronto last summer. THE BRIDGE provides an unflinching look at the struggle street cops face as they not only battle criminals – but also their own bosses – in order to protect society and, ultimately, themselves.

Produced by Barna-Alper Productions, an Entertainment One company, 990 Multi Media Entertainment Company and Jonsworth Productions, in association with CTV, production of THE BRIDGE is scheduled to begin in 2009. THE BRIDGE becomes the third, new original drama series to be ordered by CTV in the last year, joining last summer’s breakout hit FLASHPOINT and THE LISTENER, currently in production.

“Craig Bromell is one of the most galvanizing figures in the history of policing in Canada,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “We look forward to working with him on THE BRIDGE, and bringing to Canadian audiences a distinct and authentic view of life behind the scenes of a modern police force.”

“We set out to make the most realistic two-hour movie drama about cops ever seen on TV, and it has paid off,” said Craig Bromell, Executive Producer, 990 Multi Media Entertainment Company. “We expose the inner workings of a big city police force – the police, power and politics behind the blue line. It’s something that hasn’t been seen before on TV, and we’re grateful to CTV for this opportunity. We’re looking forward to collaborating with Alan Di Fiore to create even more compelling, hard-hitting storylines for the series.”

“We are very excited to be able to bring to our new company this gritty, realistic series that is brought to life by Alan Di Fiore and produced by CTV,” said Laszlo Barna, Executive Producer, Barna-Alper Productions, an Entertainment One company.

Written by five-time Gemini Award winner and six-time nominee Alan Di Fiore (DA VINCI’S INQUEST, THE LIFE, THE HANDLER), THE BRIDGE peels away the veneer of a big-city Canadian police force to reveal the political machinations underneath. After the rank and file unanimously vote street cop Frank Leo (Aaron Douglas) into office as union head, he begins his quest to put street cops first and clean up the force from the ground up.

But the old boys’ network running the police force and the city’s self-serving politicians are not about to sit idly by while a former street cop makes up his own rules. Frank walks a thin blue line as he battles wiretaps and a concerted campaign to bring him down, letting nothing stop him from fulfilling his unwavering vow that when cops are in trouble, the union will be there.

THE BRIDGE stars Aaron Douglas (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, SMALLVILLE) as outspoken union head Frank Leo; Paul Popowich (ANGELA’S EYES, I ME WED) as Frank’s partner and confidante Tommy Dunn; Gemini-Award nominee Inga Cadranel (RENT-A-GOALIE, MVP) as Jill, the free-spirited cop on the force; Frank Cassini (Vice, INTELLIGENCE) as Staff Sergeant Bernie Kantor; Theresa Joy (ALL THE GOOD ONES ARE MARRIED, Sixty Days) as feisty tomboy Police Constable Billy; Ona Grauer (STARGATE SG-1 and STARGATE ATLANTIS) as beautiful, passionate prosecutor Abby St. James; Michael Murphy (Away from Her, X-Men: The Last Stand) as Chief of Police, and political animal, Ed Wycoff; and two-time Emmy Award winner Stuart Margolin (THE ROCKFORD FILES, TOM STONE) as Frank’s father, Vic Leo.

THE BRIDGE is produced by Barna-Alper Productions, 990 Multi Media Entertainment Company and Jonsworth Productions, in association with CTV. Executive Producers are Craig Bromell, Laszlo Barna, Adam J. Shully, Alan Di Fiore and Robert Wertheimer. Wendy Grean is producer. CTV’s Production Executive is Brett Burlock. Susanne Boyce is President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc.

THE BRIDGE: On location

As we all know, Aaron is in Toronto right now filming the 2-hour pilot episode of THE BRIDGE.

I got home from work tonight to find the following email from him and had to share …

We’re shooting this show mostly outdoors & on location.

So fans can watch….. If they can find us.

:-D

LOL. He’s such a tease.

 

EDIT: A fan has already spotted him …

In front of me at the Toronto Whole Foods stood The Chief, Galen Tyrol – also known as Aaron Douglas. I reacted instantly, “You’re in Battlestar!” He replied, “Why, yes I am.” “You’re the Chief and you’re awesome,” I blurted out. Smooth, MP. “Thanks,” he calmly responded, no doubt thinking about the organic fare we has soon to procure. With one last ounce of annoying harassment I demanded, “Who is the fifth cylon?!?!?!!” With an air of loftiness he answered, “Oh, I can’t tell you that.” “You’re such a cylon,” I told him. He chuckled a bit, and then we both went our separate ways.

Read the full story here: http://marypatomeara.com/blog/?p=68

Thanks to imfiery for the above find.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL: Trailer

It was announced on here back in December 2007 that Aaron would be in the remake of THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL playing Sgt. Winter. A couple of weeks ago the official trailer was released ….

I asked Aaron if he had an update on whether he was going to be in the movie or not (because in the MediaBlvd interview back in May, he said “I had a very small part in The Day the Earth Stood Still, the new Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly film. I think they might have recast me and re-shot those scenes”) and he basically told me the same thing that he said in the MediaBlvd interview and that he hadn’t seen the movie and would be surprised if he was in it.

I guess we’ll just have to wait until December the 12th to see it in the cinemas and find out.

THE BRIDGE: Aaron cast as the lead in new tv show

It didn’t take long for someone to scoop up our very talented man and cast him in a new tv show :)

Aaron is going to be the lead on a new television series for CTV called THE BRIDGE. THE BRIDGE is a ‘cop show’ and Aaron’s character is called Frank Leo.
Aaron is flying out to Toronto on Monday to film the 2 hour pilot and won’t be back until August 20th. If the show gets picked up, he will need to move to Toronto (temporarily) for filming.

THE BRIDGE (WORKING TITLE)

This one hour dramatic cop series in the vein of The Wire and Rescue Me, is set in Toronto and exceeds the speed limit while following politics, law and gang enforcement. Set in a fictious police division, The Bridge spans two disparate worlds, one of affluence and one and one of abject poverty, a combination of high stakes theft and murder to muggings in a world where the victim’s rap sheets run longer than the perps. Produced by Barna-Alper Productions (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Blue Murder) 990 Productions and Jonsworth Productions.

UPDATE (August 1st): Below is some additional info on the THE BRIDGE, thanks to Lex and Pedda from Caprica City.

The Bridge follows fictional character Frank Leo (played by Vancouver-born Aaron Douglas) and his climb from street cop to union head challenging the command structure of the entire police force, making enemies along the way. The character is based on veteran insider and outspoken former Toronto police union head, Craig Bromell.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Aaron’s last day

Today (Thursday July 10th) is a very sad day. It’s Aaron’s last day on the set of BSG :'(

Big hugs and kisses to Aaron from all the Angels. And I think I speak for all of us when I say that we will continue to support him on whatever he moves on to next.

If it wasn’t for Aaron I never would have watched BSG in a million years (I hate SciFi). So a huge thank you to him for introducing me to BSG and for all the great real life (and online) friends I have made from being involved in the BSG fandom.

NOTE: It’s actually everyone’s last day on the set for S4. But we really only care about Aaron :)

UPDATE: Filming finished at 4:15am (Friday, July 11th).

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (TV MOVIE): Update

Sorry for the delay in updating everyone on the BSG movie. Aaron and I don’t get a chance to chat in real time during the week because when I’m at home it’s some ungodly hour in Vancouver. And then when he’s up, I’m at work and don’t have internet access. But anyway ….

Edward James Olmos will be directing the movie and it will be written by Jane Espenson (not David Weddle and Bradley Thompson as previously reported by SyFy Portal). David and Bradley are now writing for a very popular tv show (they start July 7th). I’m not sure if the name of which show they are writing for has been made public yet so I better not mention it by name.

Aaron has been told that there will only be one BSG tv movie and it will shoot in September.

If any of the above info changes, I’ll let you know.

And ….. saving the best until last ….. NBC Universal’s lawyers have been in contact with Aaron’s agent about Aaron being in the movie. Fingers crossed that Aaron signs on the dotted line :)

UPDATE: Aaron said that the movie will be set during season 1.

UPDATE (July 4th): It’s now ok to say the name of the tv series that David and Bradley are writing for because it has been posted online elsewhere. The show is CSI: Las Vegas.

CHIEF TYROL ACTION FIGURE: SDCC Blood Drive

For anyone going to San Diego Comic-Con this year, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (DST) will be giving away a Chief Tyrol Action Figure for donors at the Blood Drive. Below is a copy & paste from the Action Figure Insider website.

DST DONATES BSG’S CHIEF TO SAN DIEGO BLOOD DRIVE!

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (DST) is excited to announce plans to once again participate in the annual Blood Drive at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con! To emphasize the importance of giving blood, Diamond Select will be donating a limited edition exclusive Battlestar Galactica Season 3 Chief Tyrol figure as a giveaway for participating donors!

Chief Tyrol has been featured on Sci-Fi’s Battlestar Galactica since 2003 and remains a fan-favorite character. The figure has been limited to 750 pieces, and will only be available through the blood drive – they will not be on sale or given away elsewhere.

“After the last three years’ extremely successful campaigns, we’re delighted to once again be contributing to the Robert A Heinlein Blood Drive,” said Chuck Terceira, Director of Diamond Select Toys. “They’ve broken three consecutive records, so we’re hoping for even more blood to be donated this year!”

In its 31st year, the Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive has long been a San Diego Comic-Con staple. After science-fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein was ill, he needed several pints of a rare blood type. Following the illness, Heinlein created a personal rule that he would only attend conventions and sign autographs for those that donated blood. This started the Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive at San Diego Comic-Con in the early 1970’s. Last year’s 847 pints was the most blood collected at the drive in ten years, thanks in part to Diamond Select Toys’ continued support and promotional action figures.

“We are pleased to have Diamond Select on board to support the Blood Drive. Their donation of such a limited edition collectible will certainly help the awareness and success of the annual event,” remarked Comic-Con Director of Marketing and Public Relations, David Glanzer.

To register for the Blood Drive, stop by the Blood Drive booth at Comic-Con or visit the Comic-Con website, www.comic-con.org, for additional instructions and information.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (TV MOVIE)

Below is an excerpt from GALACTICA SITREP regarding the BSG TV Movie. I hope that (what I highlighted in bold below) means that Tyrol will be in the BSG tv movie. Fingers crossed.

Our sources indicate that in fact the first telemovie will focus mainly on three characters (think Cylons) and offers are on the table for those actors currently. Additional co-stars will depend on various actors availability. (As we’ve reported many are joining other series that are likely to be in production when the BSG film is being shot.) It’s expected that Edward James Olmos will appear in the film, since he’s also slated to direct it. SyFy Portal recently noted that David Weddle and Bradley Thompson were expected to write the film, however circumstances could change, especially if the current talks between SAG and the AMPTP over the new actors contract were to break down:

If a movie does come into being, the first one will be penned by Weddle and Thompson, who also [wrote] the mid-season premiere [Sometimes A Great Notion] that airs in early 2009.

“It would go back into history to tell part of the story that has never been told,” Weddle said [of the telemovie]. “We have very definite ideas of what that story would be. I think it will be very cool and fans will really like it. It won’t add any new chapters, but it will enrich their sense of depth and texture.”
