Recent interview with lead actres on Fringe, Anna Torv
Discovering new layers of her character (Olivia)
“Oh it’s great because it’s television so you don’t really know when you start. You just do it episode by episode, and we don’t get the episodes, say – we don’t get them, you know, much ahead of time so every time you read it oh, my God, and that – really, oh, and then you sort of try and put it in, but it’s – it’s fun.”

Ten New Faces to Watch In New Series

Posted by Annie on
November 7th, 2008

Each year since 1998, I’ve compiled a “10 to Watch” list of actors on TV. These are actors on new network shows who have the potential to go on to bigger careers even if their new series fails.

Past years have been easy. The first “10 to Watch” included Keri Russell, Kevin James and Sean Hayes. Even the cast of “That ’70s Show” was singled out and almost all of them have continued to work.

This year was a nightmare. The lower number of new shows, 19, would have made the task difficult enough. But the networks, particularly the CW Network, have not been real helpful in getting to see the new shows in advance.

So instead of trying to boil down dozens of potential actors with the skill to find real stardom, this year’s list is just the best of what is a very weak 2008-2009 television season field.

1. Kyle Bornheimer, “Worst Week,” CBS: Since he moved to Los Angeles from his hometown of South Bend, Ind., the actor has appeared in a host of shows from “The Office” to “Jericho.”

This comedy puts him in the spotlight. Because he is playing a guy who has nothing but bad luck, this is a chance to build some real empathy from the audience.

2. Justin Bruening, “Knight Rider,” NBC: Daytime drama fans know Bruening from his work on “All My Children.” But the former model is now getting the chance to build a larger fan base though this updated action series. The original “Knight Rider” made David Hasselhoff a star. And Bruening has far more talent than Hasselhoff.

3. Lucy Kate Hale, “Privileged,” CW Network: The actress began to get some attention last year playing Jamie Sommers’ little sister on the failed NBC show “The Bionic Woman.” She back playing another little sister but the role will give her a lot more to do.

She had a small role in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.” It was memorable enough to show she could star in “Traveling Pants 3” if such a film gets made.

4. AnnaLynne McCord, “90210,” The CW: The Atlanta native wants to become the new Angelina Jolie. She’s got a great start on fulfilling that dream. Fans of the FX Network series “Nip/Tuck” have already seen how McCord can heat up a scene. This series should establish McCord as one of television’s best bad girls.

5. Niecy Nash, “Do Not Disturb,” Fox: The firecracker comedian has built a small following through her work on “Reno 911.” Her sharp wit and comic timing is deserving of network exposure. She even manages to be funny when the comedy isn’t. (And this one wasn’t — Fox canceled it after three episodes.)

6. Jason O’Mara, “Life on Mars,” ABC: If the network does not mess up this American version of the British miniseries, the Irish actor should be able to write his own ticket for future roles.

He had a story arc in “Grey’s Anatomy” and was a recurring character on ‘Men In Trees.” Those were lightweight compared to this role as a police detective who finds himself in the wrong decade.

7. Anne Slowey, “Stylista,” CW Network: Everyone loves a villain.

The Fashion News Director of Elle magazine will fill that role in the new reality series. She’s going to be tough and demanding. Imagine a female Simon Cowell.

8. Anna Torv, “Fringe,” Fox: Female stars in J.J. Abrams series have gone on to fame and fortune: Keri Russell, Jennifer Garner, Evangeline Lilly. And this Australian actress has just as much talent.

Look for her to use the role as an FBI agent, assigned to a special detail that looks into the odd and creepy, as the start of much bigger things.

9. Tristan Wilds, “90210,” The CW: The New York native has already shown his acting abilities on the HBO series “The Wire.” But that series had a limited audience because it was on pay cable. His role on this high-profile show should launch Wilds into stardom.

10. Philip Winchester, “Crusoe,” NBC: This is the shakiest pick of them all. NBC has not let critics see the show. And there are no guarantees it will launch in October. But starring in a series where you are at times the only actor on screen will get anyone’s attention.

FOX Orders Full Season of Fringe

Posted by Annie on
October 15th, 2008

Fringe TV show fans can feel good about their TV show as Fox has ordered a full season of the hit Sci Fi show staring Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson. Fox order nine more episodes due to Fringe gaining popularity each week with well over 10 million viewers!

The next episode of Fringe will show this Tuesday on 14 Oct. You can also order episodes on iTunes!

Here’s screencaptures of 1×02 – “The Same Old Story” and stills of 1×04 “The Arrival”. Check them out:

FOX debuted its highly anticipated but nonetheless risky new J.J. Abrams series Fringe in a special 90-minute episode on Tuesday, September 9. While solid, the ratings were not the blockbuster numbers the producers may have been hoping for. However, audiences will get another chance to tune into the pilot episode at 8 PM ET on Sunday, September 14, and FOX has added some goodies to the evening to spice up the rebroadcast even for those who caught the show the first time. In a conference call, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Fringe co-creators, writers, and executive producers), as well as Jeff Pinkner (executive producer) discussed the pesky ratings and rebroadcast treats.

Pinkner explained that not only will series stars Joshua Jackson (Peter Noble) and Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham) host the rebroadcast, FOX will also show “the first act of episode two at the tail end of the pilot.” The second episode, titled “The Same Old Story,” will deal with an investigation into the deaths of a woman who experiences a vastly accelerated pregnancy and what the press release describes as a “senior citizen” newborn. FOX will start the ball rolling on the evening with an exclusive first look at a scene from The Day The Earth Stood Still, followed by a preview of 24: Redemption, the two-hour standalone special episode of 24 coming in November.

“The Same Old Story” publicity stillWith treats like these, clearly the network is hoping viewers will check out the rebroadcast, but Kurtzman and Orci insist that they are not concerned about the modest 9.1 million ratings for the pilot. Orci explained, “If it was a movie, we’d be concerned, but a TV show is a marathon, so next week will be more a time to celebrate or be concerned.” Given that the episode gained viewers throughout the broadcast and won the desirable 18-49 age demographic, the numbers are promising, especially as Fringe launched earlier in September than other Abrams shows and without a strong lead-in. That changes next week, when Fringe should benefit from following hit show House.

Kurtzman said that the producers took into account that in early September, people would still be finding their way back to their television sets, and the show may need a two or three week ramp-up to find its audience. Fortunately, Fringe has been crafted to be less serialized than a program like Lost. Orci noted, “That’s … why we were trying to be disciplined about having a show you can come in week two, week three or week four and still catch up. If you’ve missed the pilot, it’s okay.”

Fringe will have its regular time period premiere at 9 PM ET on Tuesday, September 16, following the 8 PM season premiere of House.
