British Farscape afficianados get a chance to see the Alex Dimitriades, the actor who played Lt. Velorek (in the season two episode â€śThe Way We Werenâ€™t), when he appears in an Australian drama being broadcast on BBC Four on Thursday 27 October 2011. The series, called The Slap, is an 8-part drama, based on a novel by Christos Tsiolkas. The series is also currently airing on Australiaâ€™s ABC1 network. You can read more details about it at Suite101.com. Australiaâ€™s ABC1 also has a handsome website for the series.
In the opinion of this ChicagoScaper, all of the actors who appeared on Farscape were topnotch, and their other efforts are always worth a look, even if only to see them elevate their material. From a review in the Sydney Herald, this series looks like itâ€™s well made, and is based on a popular Australian novel, making it likely to be an interesting story to watch. Sadly, this doesnâ€™t seem like something that will ever air on American TV, and it might be a wee bit too obscure to get a torrent feed.No comments
Claudia Black, (Our Beloved Raven Haired Goddess) finds another voiceover gig. This time sheâ€™ll be playing the role of Cheetah, one of the baddies out to get The Justice League, in a new, animated, direct-to-video movie project. The movie, titled Justice League: Doom, will also feature Nathan Fillion as The Green Lantern, and Tim Daly as Superman. The story is expected to be loosely based on the Tower of Babel arc which ran in issues #43-46. In it, the files Batman keeps on his fellow teammates that lists each memberâ€™s powers, strengths and weaknesses are stolen and used against the team members one at a time, creating a major threat to the Justice League.
In the animated version of The Justice League world, Cheetah is what resulted when biologist Barbara Minerva spliced cheetah genes with her own. (Sound familiar??) In an effort to find funding to continue her experiment, she turned to crime, eventually joining Lex Luthorâ€™s Injustice Gang.
According to IGN, Warner Brothers Home Video will premiere the movie at the New York City Comic Con festival, on October 14th, 3 â€“ 4 PM at the IGN Theater.No comments
