The relaunch of the alien invasion drama V on ABC has brought together an exciting group of our favorite TV actors: Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell as a Homeland Security agent, Firefly's Alan Tudyk as her partner, his former co-star Morena Baccarin as head alien Anna and Smallville's Laura Vandervoort as an alien tour guide. But one of the most familiar faces on the show is undoubtedly Scott Wolf, who played Bailey for six seasons on Party of Five, and has more recently appeared on Everwood and The Nine. On V, Wolf plays Chad Decker, a TV reporter who is allowed to interview the aliens as long as he paints them in a positive light. We sat down for a one-on-one with Wolf (making no promises, mind you) to talk about his character's moral flexibility, the reality of alien invasions and why he's ready for this show to fail miserably.
What constitutes news, you might ask? An awesome celeb hosting an awards show we've never watched? That's news. Two fallen 1980s movie stars being cast in TV shows? That's news. A TV show set in the 1970s getting dropped like a bad habit? That's news. A 1990s TV star being cast in a remake of a 1980s TV show, due to appear on TV in 2010? That's a math problem, but it's also news. All those decades and more on today's... TwoP News! (Cue American Idol theme music.)
Welcome to the Big Damn News. Sadly, there are no Firefly morsels to be had today, although we do have news on who will be joining that show's Morena Baccarin and Party of Five's Scott Wolf in the new V TV series. Plus: we find out when Anthony Head's new series will debut, when Mischa Barton will work again and why we can't wait to see next week's Dollhouse.
Guess who's been cast as an assassin-slaughtering super-badass in an upcoming big-budget action flick. This guy! (Maybe he'll wash away the world's evil with ... his tears?)
As the world girds itself for the final season of Lost, they have something else to get ready to say good-bye to besides the greatest TV show of the last decade. They can say good-bye to Matthew Fox, because he says he's done with television after this. Now, we're all for the man wanting to do more with his career, but we're not sure swearing off the medium he's been working in for so long is the way to go. Here are just a few reasons why Fox may want to issue a retraction.
