Cylons and Hotties and Writers… Oh My!

Back to my quest to do some actual work here. Earn my keep and all. I see Mark Stern, say hello and tell him that I'm glad he picked up Caprica. He seems pretty pleased with the decision (and the response that its been getting). Scanning the room, Mary McDonnell is surrounded by Sci Fi execs. Katee Sackhoff, James Callis and Jamie Bamber are being pestered by hordes of reporters, but then I see Michael Hogan, who is juggling a plate of food and another reporter... but there isn't a crowd. I'm going to sneak my way in there. I'm nervous, because I love me some Tigh, but he's a little um... intense.

Turns out that while Tigh may be a mean old drunk Cylon, Michael Hogan is awesome. He welcomes me and another fellow journalist into his little corner of the party. Tells us all about his experiences backstage at the David Letterman show (where the crew taped a Top 10 list) and laments the fact that he has to wear an eyepatch and how he needed help getting to the stage.

At this point I tell Michael Hogan he should tell Ron Moore to fix his vision problem now that he's a Cylon. Mr. Moore is suddenly standing right there, asks what Hogan is complaining about now. I explain since he's a Cylon, there should be a way to fix his eye. To which Moore warns that if Hogan complains he might end up with one of those red laser beam eyes that the robotic looking Cylons have. Guess that's the downside of telling the headwriter what you want to happen on the show, they'll make it so much worse.

I then ask the Hogan (officially my new favorite BSG cast member) if Cylon Tigh is meaner or nicer than regular Tigh. He answers that he's the same. Then I giddly tell him how I never saw him as a Cylon and how shocked I was at last season's finale. "I agree," he says. "When I read it, I was like 'No way, this can't be real.'" From the beginning I always said, 'I'm glad I'm not a Cylon.'" Then he talks all about the "All Along the Watchtower" and how he always used to tell his kids to play that song when he loud when he dies. Then he explains how he loves the special effects on the show as much as the rest of us BSG geeks and credits the amazing crews for all the hard work that they do. We then digress into a conversation about food (my other favorite subject) and the goodies that are being offered.

So I'm being uber-fangirl and after talking to Michael Hogan for a few minutes convinced him to take a picture with me (in all fairness someone else started the whole photo thing) and while I'm snapping a shot of said other guy, Aaron Douglas walks by and is like "Why would you want to take your picture with him? He's a Cylon." To which I quickly retort, "Um, look who's talking." And he stares straight at me and says, "Am I? Am I really a cylon." Then winks and walks away. Oh, these pesky actors have been trained so well by Ron Moore to be deceitful and misleading at all costs.
