Cylons and Hotties and Writers… Oh My!

The next reporter asks if the show will be turned into a big-screen franchise. Well that's the million dollar question, isn't it? Bonus points to that person. Ron Moore says, "I get this question a lot from the people on this stage. I don't think so is the honest answer. This works best as an ensemble piece and to translate into features it would have to become a different animal. Part of the special quality of the show is that you use this entire cast and you have all these complicated continuing storylines that you can embroider and embroider and get into the richness of their lives. For a feature film ... you really couldn't tie it into the show. You'd probably end up picking two members of the cast and saying, 'Its there movie.' I just don't think it is what makes the show special." Then Moore talks about the Star Trek films that he did and how they were focused on the leads. Jamie politely takes this time to ask Moore, "Which two characters do you think?" Which gets a big laugh. Mary insists that if they gave her and the rest of the cast a lot of money they'd be happy to show up for one day of work on a film. Also big laughs.

OK, so the next guy asks exactly what I'm thinking. How wrapped up will the finale be? This is seriously the easiest gig ever. I don't have to ask anything, I can just use my mental powers to get other people to stand up to potential ridicule in asking questions while I sit here and stare at the hotness that is Grace Park. Good deal. Best press conference ever. Moore insists that it will be fairly tied up, but there will be things that will be left ambiguous. David jokes, "Like that thing where it says 'and they have a plan'" and shrugs his shoulders. Funny.

Someone else asks the other question burning in my mind (awesome, thank you fellow journalists). What did Michael Hogan and Aaron Douglas think when they found out they were Cylons. Hogan in his gruff way says, "For me the news that I was a Cylon was stunning and I reacted in disbelief. It is kind of like schizophrenia going on in my head and there is no way that I accept it." To which Douglas snappily says, "You know, its not paranoia if they really are after you." I'd SO watch a spin-off where these two just banter for hours. They seem to have a great relationship. Douglas elaborates, "My style and how I act is unlike almost everyone else, save for Katee. We have no idea what we do, we just go up and say words. I don't make choices, I just talk back to the other person. This time, I made a conscious decision on how to play the chief Cylon." Sackhoff says his performance was shit and didn't make a difference. God, how cool would it be to be an extra on this set for a day?
