SciFi Friday: Get a Kiss from Jessica Alba or Seven of Nine

Get a kiss from Jessica Alba, or Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Jenna Elfman, or Loretta (Hot Lips Houlihan) Swit, and while doing so contribute money to the Humaine Society by using these postage stamps:

Speaking of Sin City, some rumors are coming out about Sin City 2. 411mania reports that Angela Jolie might be out, to be replaced by Rachel Weisz or Rose McGowan. SciFi Wire reports that Brittany Murphy is interesting in reprising her role. Of course Alexis Bledel will be back on TV next week as Gilmore Girls returns, not looking like this:

Speaking of people who have also appeared on Gilmore Girls and returning television shows, Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) gets a mentor to help him with his powers on Heroes. Christopher Eccleston, who played Doctor Who in the first season of the new series, will be joining Heroes as an invisible man named Claude, after Claude Rains, star of the 1933 movie version of The Invisible Man. His role starts on January 22, whith his character acting as a mentor for Peter. Heroes, which was renewed for a second season, also will have a new tag line to follow “save the cheerleader, save the world” when it returns. SciFi Wire has an interview with George Takei on his upcoming role as Hiro’s father.

Jericho ends its hiatus with a recap episode on February 14 followed by new episodes the following week. Some secrets will be revealed:

“By the end of the season, you will know where Jake’s been for the last five years, you will know what Hawkins’ involvement is with the bombings and who is behind the bombings,” executive producer Carol Barbee promised critics here Thursday.

We know who was behind the bombing on 24, but unfortuantely what was supposed to be a surprising end of the opening four hours had leaked out. By the time the suitcase nuclear device exploded it was expected, especially considering that we knew that both the device would be ready just as the episode ended and an attack was imminent. Exploding the bomb while under attack was the obvious conclusion for the episode to increase interest going into the regular weekly episodes. Earlier in the week I looked at the politics of 24.

    The Rose McGowan in Sin City 2 rumor has been debunked, so it’s still on for Rachel Weisz 🙂

    With the new dual-recording Tivo, have finally tuned into “Heroes” and love! the humor. Thanks for the background on Claude, will pass on to JBK. Also, very happy Jess/Milo landed a role so soon after Gilmore Girls. Ah, Gilmore Girls. Do we even care anymore?

    Have yet to watch the season opener of ’24.’ Might wait and let the show que up and watch later in the year. ??

    FYI, Seven of Nine Jeri has a role on Shark, which is worth watching just to see James Woods at his best. Woods doesn’t just chew the scenery, he chews, digests and spits it out, all in the space of a few seconds. Also, Jeri wears cool suits. 😉

    kj,

    I haven’t seen any of the shows Jeri Ryan stared in following Voyager. There are far too many ex-ST actors to even attempt to watch shows just because they are in them. The only person I specifically watched something because he was in it was Patrick Stewert, who was probably the best actor to appear in any of the versions of Star Trek.

    There are advantages and disadvantages of holding off on 24. The show does work well when watched in marathon sessions, sort of increasing the “real time” effect, plus you don’t have to wait to see how the cliff hangers are resolved the following hour. The downside is that sometimes the surprises are ruined from all the media (and blog) coverage of the show.
