Javi at Gallifrey One last weekend
... that being a thoroughly hinder-kicking Doctor Who convention in Los Angeles. Javi was an invited guest for the second year in a row. He said that Matt Keeslar, Natalie Morales, and Britt Morgan will all be guests at the upcoming Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo in March.

Javi was going around Saturday at the con in a pretty good Roger Delgado-The Master costume, complete with fake beard and goatee.

Interrodroid in Super Bowl commercial
Blink and you'll miss it, but our favorite easily-destroyed menial-task robot made an appearance in Mini's commercial for their new Countryman:

Interrodroid at 00:17, double-entendre'd language everywhere:

Guess it decided to leave for a job that wouldn't result in getting blown up or otherwise mangled every two weeks...

The Ectoplasmic Panhellenic Investigation fan "trailer"
I made this for a scifiland fan-made trailer video challenge. I kinda failed at the 'trailer' part, but it is only the 2nd video I've ever made, so I'm pretty happy with it. :)

Which may or may not be relevant to this comm, idek.

But I find this promotional picture of Brendan Hines to be pretty deliciously relevant:

Brit Morgan Joins HBO's True Blood

Apparently, this news has been floating around for about a week, but in case you haven't seen this little tidbit:


True Blood tends to do humongo panels at Comic-Con with a proverbial cast of thousands (well, that's just silly hyperbole) of cast members and writers on stage. So, if Brit's on the panel, you can be darn tootin' that I'm gonna be yelling out "Art Crawl!"

Mini-Middleman Reunion on TNT's Leverage

This is incredibly short notice, but if you've got the East or West Coast feeds of TNT, you might still be able to watch tonight's episode of Leverage, "The Zanzibar Marketplace Job" for a mini-Middleman reunion. Matt Keeslar and Mark Sheppard are guest stars and Jeremiah Chechik directs. If you miss the episode, I believe that it will be streaming on the TNT website next week.

Help Haiti by bidding on Middlefic!
help_haiti is a fandom auction to help Haiti recover from the earthquake it suffered yesterday. Fans are auctioning various services, including fic, and all the proceeds go to the bidder's choice of charities; eponymous_rose, solookup, and myself are both offering Middlefic, among other things. solookup's thread is here, and eponymous_rose's is here, and mine is here. I'll do my best to keep this list updated if anyone else offers Middlefic.

Have a Middlefic idea that you've always wanted to see written? This is your chance!

Natalie Morales & the Catsuit

Natalie has been tweeting recently about the catsuit making an appearance in March. Hmmm? Will Special Agent Lauren Cruz will be getting her freak on for White Collar?

31 October 2009 @ 01:51 pm
Natalie on White Collar and a Mark Dacascos update
Has anybody seen Natalie's first episode of White Collar yet? (It aired last night, but I was at my high school's homecoming game, playing good little alumna.) I think she's supposed to replace the other girl FBI agent that was in the first episode. Of course, I could be wrong... I'm not going to get a chance to watch it for a while, so please let me know if the episode (and Natalie) is good!

I'm really impressed with her character as described by USA: "she has a doctorate from Cambridge and is fluent in five languages." Can't wait to see how that shows up in the show. Additionally, her actor bio mentions Wendy quite a bit - yay!

Additionally, Mark Dacascos is doing really well on Dancing with the Stars, consistently staying right around third-fourth place, which is, I think, only because there are some ringers on the show. However, he's been dancing great, and has been regarded once or twice as having the best of his style of dance on that particular night (the best jitterbug, the best paso doble; that's part of the bad thing about that show, he can have the best jitterbug, but two or three waltzes might be great, which puts Mark in 3rd-4th place. That and I think the judges have their favorites). Mark's YouTube channel has a playlist of all his dances, which you can see here. (Oh, and they show his family every so often. He's got adorable kids.)

This week, Mark's partner Lacey is out with the flu, so he's going to be dancing with another pro on Monday night. Anything could happen, so he could use all the extra votes he can get. You can vote online here.

And happy Halloween everybody! You know this is a holiday that Wendy loves, MM appreciates, and Ida despises.

TV Appearances
I believe that Javi's cameo on the Comic-Con inspired episode of Greek will air this Monday, Oct. 12th, on ABC Family at 9/8c. Also, Eden Sher, who was Cindy Marshall from "The Boy-Band Superfan Interrogation," plays Patricia Heaton's daughter, Sue, on ABC's The Middle. Ah, what a wonderful memory of a supremely naughty joke from that episode of The Middleman: "She wants to suck them all through a hole...(inappropriate pause)...in space!"

Natalie Morales becomes series regular on USA Network's White Collar
This was actually spotted earlier by another Middlefan, but here's the original source from The Hollywood Reporter:


I actually figured that Natalie's time on Josh Schwartz' Rockville CA might lead to a guest spot on Chuck, but being a series regular on USA's White Collar might be the next best thing. And, as luck would have it, the ubiquitous Mark Sheppard (Manservant Neville), appears to at least be in the pilot as Curtis Hagen, but I don't know if that means Natalie, as Lauren Cruz, will be sharing any screen time with him by the time her episodes start to come around.

I'm hoping that the series will turn out to be the kind of quirky crime show that warrants sending the cast and creators to Comic-Con, like this year's pop-ins by Bones, Psych, and maybe to a lesser extent, action/adventure shows like Burn Notice and 24 (and when is the caper show Leverage going to drop on by?) Don't get me wrong, Brendan Hines is fine on Lie to Me, but that Fox series is actually pretty strait-laced, which is why they'll probably never make an appearance at Comic-Con.

Anyway, I've got my fingers crossed that Brit Morgan will make a guest appearance on White Collar. After all, I seem to recall that Lacey is wanted in three different states!

The Time-Tossed Famished Farmer

Hmm, how to keep the home fires burning? How about some random silliness that I slapped together?

05 September 2009 @ 11:11 pm
From the "You Know You're a Middlefan If" File...
I know the last post I made here was about Mark Dacascos, but I swear I am not obsessed with, nor am I stalking him. In any way.*

I've been spending a lot of time watching Food Network, because I am unemployed and bored (and all other daytime TV is crap), and I've noticed that on Iron Chef America, Mark Dacascos has two "Chairman" voices. One is pretty normal, and the other is the "I am Chairman hear me roar!" Both sound like him, with a bit of an exaggerated Asian accent, since ICA's fictional background is that the Chairman is the nephew of the Japanese Chairman.

Both sound eerily like Sensei Ping. (Just with a little less "surly.")

Add that to the fact that when he's about to unveil the secret ingredient, he makes a lot of rapid head turns between the chefs, and they added that whoosh sound that accompanied Sensei Ping's every move... now I have a hard(er) time taking him seriously on the show.

Also, I do have Mark news on the Dancing front, and some pictures have already surfaced in the weeks leading up to the premiere in two-point-something weeks. Let's just say the dude looks darn good in a tux. And here Mark and Lacey show off the Three Terrors. Sounds like his first two dances are the Cha Cha, which he'll do to "Kung Fu Fighting" (I know the songs are supposed to be drawn at random, but I wonder if that was planned), and the Viennese Waltz (in which I hope he'll wear that tux).

*I mean, I can report on how he does on DWTS, but only if you guys are interested.
20 August 2009 @ 08:06 pm
He'll be taking out all competitors with the Wuhan Thumb of Death!
The celebrity line-up of Season 9 of "Dancing With the Stars" was released on Monday, and Mark Dacascos will be one of the stars competing.

Yes, you read that right. Sensei Ping is going to be on DWTS.

He'll be competing against the likes of Aaron Carter, UFC fighter Chuck Liddell, Donny Osmond, Kelly Osbourne, Macy Gray, Melissa Joan Hart, Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

The season starts September 21 on ABC!

Edit: It's been confirmed (not sure by whom, so take this with a grain of salt) that Mark will be dancing with Lacey Schwimmer. That's got me excited - she's really good.

Middleman Auction at Project Teddybear

Hey, fellow Middlefans! I'm priscellie, the girl dressed as Comic Book Wendy at SDCC09. I'm contacting you on behalf of my good friend Lisa Spodak, who has been raising money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer since 2002. Over the years, though donations and a series of charity auctions, she has raised nearly $150,000 toward research and providing care and treatment for the under-insured.

What kind of charity auctions, you might ask? Lisa collects autographs and photos of celebrities posing with an Avon Breast Cancer Bear, then auctions off bear, autograph, and 4x6 glossy on eBay. Her latest endeavor is a batch of auctions featuring actors, writers, and creators who are active on Twitter.

Today, an auction featuring the cast of Middleman went live! Bid on a breast cancer bear with autographs and photos from Javier Grillo-Marxuach (our glorious creator), Natalie Morales (Wendy), Matt Keeslar (The Middleman), Brit Morgan (Lacey--not pictured, but included among autographs), Jake Smollett (Noser), Mary Pat Gleason (Ida), and Brendan Hines (Tyler).

As an extra incentive to all the fans of the folks with bears in this batch to help her get the word out, Lisa will be donating an extra $50 to the Avon Walk in the name of whoever's auction brings in the most money!

Let's show how generous and charity-oriented we Middlefans can be! Lacey would want you to. :D

Check it out here, and find out who else is coming up soon at the PTB website. Auction Crawl! *pumps fist*

Random Comic-Con Thoughts & Other Nonsense

In hindsight, I wish that I could have some Comic-Con do-overs. For instance, on the Wednesday Preview Night, I caught a glimpse of Javi as he was leaving the Viper Comics booth, and was thinking to myself, "Dude, he's like with his wife, should I be that a-hole fan that goes up to him and says, 'Hey, Javi, if you're going to do something with The Middleman theme at the table read tomorrow, remind Natalie and Matt to point.'" Sadly, since there was no pointing at the table read, I hereby kick myself.

Ah, the table read itself was a fine example of shock and awesomeness, as there were no announcements or introductions, rather, everyone magically appeared and stormed the stage. Everyone quickly got down to business, and when it was over, a well-deserved standing ovation ensued. When I spoke with Natalie on the following Friday about how I was the one that had yelled out "Art Crawl" as she was being introduced at last year's TV Guide panel, she was ever so slightly disappointed that I, nor any of the other thousand folks in the audience, had yelled it out this year. I'm feeling especially bad, because now I've seen the ABC Family Middleman-ager clips on the DVD. Those appear to have been taped shortly after last year's Comic-Con, when it must have been painfully obvious that Middlefans like to yell out Art Crawl in public, since all of the segments end with that fabled call to arms. Sigh....

I have DVDs!
Today was my own personal Middleday, as I had to wait for my Middleswag. primitiveskin, being completely awesome, agreed to get some goodies for me from Comic-Con, and so it took a few extra days to get here. (In the meantime, I had received my copy from Amazon, but sadly had to send them back.)

And, as taraljc  requested, I am posting pics!Collapse )

I didn't get to watch any of it today because it was my grandpa's birthday, and we spent the day at his house with my cousins, but I totally intend on having a Middlethon this weekend. It will be glorious.

Have your boxset? Post a photo of yourself and your shiny, shiny dvds here or to the Event on Facebook! Don't have your boxset yet? Well, what in the gosh darned heck are you waiting for?

(It also makes a great gift for family members, loved ones, spouses, significant others, your third grade teacher, or random waifs you might meet in the street who need a hot meal and 9 hours of continuous awesome adventure and fun balanced with touching personal drama...and trout-craving zombies.)

But wait... there's more!

Joys & Disappointments of Comic-Con

DVDs weren't available Wed. night. When they were available Thurs., there were only 100 copies, so those flew out the door. They weren't able to restock Fri., so I need to check Sat. if they've got more. Inexplicably, Viper Comics seems to have plenty of copies of the 13th episode GN! Did Viper just do a fabulous job of logistics, or are my fellow Middlefans ignoring the purchase of this one-of-a-kind treasure? Oh, and Shout! Factory seems to be in agreement that if DVD sales warrant it, they may consider re-issuing the DVD as a Blu-ray Disc set, with the live table reading obviously being a ready-made extra feature!

Got to chat with Javi for a little bit. As excited as I was to meet him, he was pleased to be able to attach a face to my screen name. However, this isn't an excuse for some yahoo to try and pass themself off as say, cupidsXXXarrow, on the off-chance that Javi hasn't actually come face-to-face with that person. Javi was full of glee when I showed him my failed guerrilla art project (it didn't work because the table read format just completely threw me off). Anyway, if you ever saw the Javi-cast in which Javi demonstrated that the writers don't communicate with one another verbally, and use little signs instead...that's what I made...35 sets of the Writers' Room Paddle Signs, that I had sprinkled amongst my fellow audience members. So, if the show ever gets revived, true Middlefans should think about slapping together a set of paddle signs of their own.

Natalie was personally disappointed in me when I mentioned that I was the one that had yelled out "Art Crawl" last year, to which she responded by raising her fist up in recognition, and that I had failed to yell it out this year. I had to explain that, as above, the table read format of the panel completely threw me off. Let me further interpret Natalie's disappointment in not hearing an Art Crawl shout-out by inferring that she was severely disappointed in the thousand other people in the audience, since none of them thought about yelling out Art Crawl either. So, this may or may not be an open invitation by Natalie for people to yell out Art Crawl to her, should she get another genre TV/movie gig, just like the Firefly folks can't seem to get away from their undying fan adulation, no matter what their current projects happen to be!
24 July 2009 @ 04:29 pm
My impression is, soon he will be invincible.
Somebody posted five minutes of the table read to YouTube. My guess is that Mark Sheppard really likes his job, and possibly grew up not expecting the Spanish Inquisition. (I.e. diabolical laughter. Diabolical acting.)

Slight Shipping Snafu at Comic-Con
Shout! Factory (booth 3749) didn't have any of The Middleman DVDs available for Preview Night at Comic-Con last night, but hope to have them by 8am this morning in time for the live table reading and subsequent autograph session. In the meantime, Viper Comics (booth 1903) had the finest thing that you could ever hope to spend 5 bucks (USD) on, The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse GN!

iFMagazine has part 1 of a 2-part interview with el jefe, pimping the SDCC table read, The Middleman: The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse graphic novel, and dvds. Slightly spoiler-y, but entirely awesome.
