AMC has released the first photo (above) of Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes from the set of The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman, creator/writer of the comic and executive producer on the TV series says, “Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick. Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love. After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he is perfect for the role.”

The Syfy Channel Unveils New Saturday Night Movie Genre Slate

February 4, 2010

THE Syfy Channel has announced it is adding a new Saturday original movie genre to its popular mix, re-imagining classic fairy tales, legends and pop culture characters – from Little Red Riding Hood, Aladdin and Sinbad the Sailor to Handel and Gretel – beginning with the premiere of Beauty and the Beast on Saturday, February 27th @ 9:00 p.m. EST/PST.

Starring Estella Warren (Planet of the Apes), Beauty and the Beast is not the traditional Disney fairy tale. In this gritty celebration of Valentine’s Day, a young Beauty (Warren) with a gift for healing helps a deformed Prince (Rhett Gilles, Wraiths of Roanoke) regain his throne and defeat the ruthless nobleman who wants to be king – and then together they try to destroy a power-hungry witch. Beauty and the Beast was directed by David Lister and written by Gavin Scott.

Said Thomas Vitale, Syfy Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, “By turning familiar timeless stories inside out – like retelling Little Red Riding Hood as a werewolf tale or envisioning a dark version of Shrek – we’re creating an entertaining new genre for our popular Saturday night movie franchise, which has become the television destination for fans of action-packed, independent Sci-fi, Horror and Fantasy films.”

Vitale also announced a preliminary development slate for the new line of Syfy original movies, including:

Red – A young woman who is a descendant of the real Little Red RIding Hood brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by one. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.

Hansel – Twenty years after his encounter with the witch, a grown-up Hansel returns to the haunted forest, seeking revenge. But there’s a surprise waiting – his sister Gretel (who he thought had been killed) is the witch’s protegé.

8th Voyage of Sinbad – Sinbad searches for the golden head of the long lost Colossus of Rhodes and, instead, discovers an island where the mythical Minotaur still rules, protecting a vast treasure. Sinbad and his crew have to battle the creature and its minions to get the treasure and save their own lives.

Aladdin (working title) – After accidentally releasing an evil genie from an ancient lamp, Aladdin must find a way to imprison the genie again before it wreaks havoc on the world.

Black Forest – A group of naive tourists take a sightseeing tour into a supposed enchanted forest, where they encounter evil creatures from the world of Fantasy. Trapped in the Black Forest, their only hope of survival is fighting their way out.

A group of ghost hunters from a nationally syndicated TV show arrive for their latest assignment – the mysterious “Wicker House” in New Orleans, which has been the site of some of the most grisly murders in history. While the house has remained uninhabited since the 1950’s, locals know to stay away. When one of the ghost hunters’ team members is sucked into the walls by a supernatural  force, the team has to work together to find their missing colleague.

Of course, they get more than they bargained for, as they begin to unravel the secret of the house – it’s alive and its foundation made of bone. As other team members start falling victim to the house’s visual trickery and ghost-like manifestations, they soon realize what the house ultimately wants is a new owner – someone who’s just as twisted and ruthless as the house itself and can continually lure fresh meat to the slaughter. Will they make it out alive or will this be the last and greatest episode of their ghostly TV series.

Aaron Ashmore – Going Green

October 10, 2009

As Jimmy Olsen on the hit CW series Smallville, Aaron Ashmore faced more than one life-and-death situation while helping Clark Kent keep the world safe. The actor gets caught up in more onscreen peril during two of his newest feature film roles, which includes the ecological thriller The Thaw (now available on DVD). His twin brother and fellow actor Shawn had read the script first, but at the time he had just finished a movie with a similar theme, so he decided to pass. Shawn gave his brother the script to read and, although he loved the story and character, Aaron’s work at the time on Smallville did not allow him time to audition. Lucky for him, the part was still available a few months later and he managed to book the job.

“My character of Atom Galen is young, somewhat ambitious and involved in the ‘green movement,'” explains Ashmore. “He’s going to school to become an ecologist/biologist, and he proves himself worthy of accompanying a small group of fellow students on an expedition with a famous biologist, Dr. David Kruipen [Val Kilmer]. An interesting element of my character is that his father is involved in the oil industry and has very little regard for the environment or what his business is doing to it. As he’s grown up, Atom has moved away from what his father stands for and gone totally in the other direction, or the “green way.” So it created a neat dynamic for me to play insofar as what he is willing to do to save the Earth and why he’s doing it.”

In The Thaw, Atom and his fellow students are eager to join Dr. Kruipen on an expedition to an Arctic research station to examine a Woolly Mammoth that has been thawed out as a result of the melting polar ice caps. They have no idea, though, that the animal contains a deadly prehistoric parasite and, after becoming infected, the group must find a way to destroy the pathogen before it can reach the outside world. Having been one of the final actors to be cast in the film, Ashmore arrived on-location in a small town in Northern British Columbia over a weekend and the cameras began rolling the following Tuesday.

“It was kind of a rush process, but everyone was extremely welcoming,” recalls the actor. “The thing that immediately blew me away was this beautiful location that they had found to shoot this movie. It’s supposed to be set in the Arctic, which I’ve never been to, but you have these mental images of it being very sparse, flat and wide-open. I was thinking, ‘How are we going to find that type of look in the middle of British Columbia,’ where there’s mainly forest and mountains. However, they [the producers] discovered an amazing plateau on this Indian reservation which was totally flat, wide-open grasslands, and that’s where they built the shell of an [Arctic] research station.

“A ton of stuff went on during our first couple of days there, including helicopter scenes, explosions and green screen work. It was really exciting and we all jumped right in. That fact that we were able to orchestrate all this stuff in the middle of nowhere was pretty cool. I mean, it was really remote. It was an hour-and-fifteen-minute drive up to this location every day, not to mention the fact that we were six hours north of Vancouver. You have to have a great deal of respect for the abilities of all the people involved who are able to put something like this together and make it work.”

As our heroes struggle to make sense of the dilemma unfolding around them, Atom develops feelings for one of his fellow expedition members. “My character has an instant connection with Dr. Kruipen’s daughter Evelyn, who is played by Martha MacIsaac,” says Ashmore. “Atom and Evelyn are sort of on the same page and come together in an effort to work through the situation they’re in, while some of the other characters go off in different directions. I thoroughly enjoyed that because Martha and I had a number of scenes together and there was definitely a romantic attraction between our two characters. At least that’s how it started out, but then it turns into a real respect as well. Martha is a sweetheart, and I actually met her years ago. I was 19 and she was probably 13 when I did an episode of a TV show that she was in called Emily of the New Moon. So I’ve known Martha for quite a while and it was great to meet up with her again.”

The Thaw was the actor’s first time being directed by Mark A. Lewis (who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Michael), and it was nothing but a positive experience for him. “Mark is probably one of the nicest directors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” notes Ashmore. “He gives you opportunity for freedom when it comes to acting. If a scene isn’t working or if Mark is looking for something else, he’ll say to you, ‘What do you think? What do you want to bring to this? What do you feel this [scene] needs?’ That’s not always the case with a director, especially if they’ve written the script, as Mark did. They might not be able to see past something if it isn’t working or needs to be changed. Happily, Mark was very open to change and willing to listen to other peoples’ ideas and suggestions. As a result, you become more involved and more responsible for the decisions that your character is making.”

When it comes to his favorite or most memorable scene in The Thaw, Ashmore is understandably reticent to reveal any specifics. “There is one, but I don’t want to talk about it because it’s a bit of a spoiler,” he says. “Overall, what I like most about the story is that there’s a real intensity to it and these standoffs between our characters because of their predicament. There might be a death – it may be Atom – but, again, I don’t want to spoil things,” teases the actor.

Only days prior to starting work on The Thaw, Ashmore wrapped filming on yet another heart-thumping, fight-for-your-life horror flick, the upcoming Deep Cove (a.k.a. Fear Island). In it he plays Mark, one of five students whose weekend getaway on a secluded island is interrupted by someone with murder on their mind.

“Mark is a nice guy, maybe a little rough around the edges, and basically his story is that he’s been dating this girl named Jenna [Haylie Duff], but they’ve broken up,” says the actor. “She’s going to New York to be a dancer and is kind of leaving Mark behind because he’s not doing much with his life. He’s not a bum or a loser, but he’s not really sure what he wants. At the last minute, Mark decides to show up at a party on this island to try to win her back. However, once he gets there, things start to go wrong and he goes from trying to win Jenna back to trying to protect her. In the process, Mark’s true feelings for her come out. There are times where he could run off and save himself, but he doesn’t. He sticks with Jenna and his main goal is to save the life of this girl who he’s in love with.

“This character is very different from Jimmy Olsen in Smallville. Mark is scruffier, has facial hair and wears a leather jacket. He’s not a bad ass, but he’s definitely a hell of a lot cooler than Jimmy, which is fine because I think I fall somewhere in the middle of Jimmy and Mark. So it was just a bit of a stretch the other way, but it was a big adjustment because I only had, I think, five or six days off from having finished shooting Smallville for the season to starting work on Deep Cove. It was just what I needed, though. I loved playing Jimmy, but it’s nice to try something new every now and then.

“And it’s funny, too, because I end up taking on some of the characteristics of whatever character I happen to be playing at the time. I wouldn’t say I’m a method actor by any means, but it’s easier to stay in the mindset of that role, and it sometimes bleeds into real life a little bit. So some of my friends were like, ‘Wow, now that you’re playing this role [of Mark], your energy has changed,’ and I’d tell them, ‘Yeah, it’s just this character.’ So it was fun to step out of Jimmy and do something else, but I’m always happy to return to Smallville.”

While some actors have made entire careers out of playing young people in peril, The Thaw and Deep Cove were Ashmore’s first ventures into horror movie territory. What does he enjoy most about working in the genre? “Again, there’s an intensity to these films, which is challenging because there’s a build-up to the story, and once that happens it’s important to keep that energy level up,” says the actor. “There’s no time for the characters to really think, you know? They’re acting off instinct, and that’s interesting to play because you can over-analyze things. You can’t slow things down in a scene, you have to keep up the pace, and I’d never really had the chance to tell a story where your character is running through a forest for his life. As an actor, it’s scary and fun to put yourself in situations like that.”

Kyle Schmid – Peak Performance

October 3, 2009

In show business it is not unusual to wish someone good luck before a performance by telling him or her to “break a leg,” metaphorically speaking, of course. Ironically, Kyle Schmid did just that many years ago, and while it meant the end of one potential career, it led to him pursuing a very different line of work.

“I played very high-level soccer in high school and during that time my mom also got me interested in the acting industry,” says Schmid. “However, it was something I did for fun and never really thought it would take off or lead to anything serious. Then when I was 17 years old I broke my leg, which more or less ended my chances of a soccer career, but at the same time they say that everything happens for a reason.

“When I was working on a movie, [producer] Debra Martin Chase, who has since become a dear friend of mine, took me aside one day and said she would like to take me out to lunch. Debra had this look in her eye and told me, ‘This [acting] is probably something you might way to pursue.’ I laughed and said, ‘This is a hobby. It’s a way for me to make a little money to save for university.’ She said, ‘No, you’re good. You’ve got something.’ Debra had me go to Los Angeles where she introduced me to a great acting coach who taught me just how far you can go with exploring your craft. Since then, this [acting] is something I’ve fallen in love with and been very passionate about.”

Schmid made his debut in the 1996 feature film Spill (a.k.a. Virus), in which the lives of everyone visiting a U.S. National Park are threatened by an out-of-control truck filled with biological weapons. “My character got to fire a double-barreled shotgun, became infected with a virus, was given a tracheotomy, died and was subsequently carried down a hill by [football player-turned-actor] Brian Bosworth,” recalls the actor. “He actually carried me on one shoulder and a 220-pound guy over the other shoulder while going down a 45-degree slope at a full sprint. As a 13-year-old boy I was thinking, ‘Holy crap, this is pretty neat!'”

Fast Food High, The Pacifier and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants are among the actor’s other movie credits. On the small screen, he has appeared in several made-for-TV movies as well as guest-spots on such TV programs as I Was a Sixth Grade Alien, Odyssey 5, 1-800-Missing and CSI: Miami. In 2007, Schmid was cast in his first series regular role as Henry Fitzroy, a vampire with a conscience in the short-lived Lifetime TV series Blood Ties.

“Creating a character like that was an interesting challenge because you look at all the portrayals of vampires in movies, but don’t want to copy them,” he notes. “You get an idea of what a vampire is, but the last thing you want to do is play, for example, Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire. Quite the opposite; you want to create something new, especially for someone like me who, at 22 years old, was portraying a 450-year-old.

“Working on Blood Ties and having the audience enjoy what we did was one of my coolest experiences so far as an actor. The fan base is very dear to me and I’m extremely appreciative of all the support they’ve given our cast as well as the writers, directors, etc. Without them there wouldn’t have been a show. It was a ton of hard work on everyone’s part, but it was a situation where we all arrived onset with smiles on our faces. We had a real family and the chemistry among the cast and crew made the series something special.”

This month, the actor can be seen in the Sci-Fi/Horror movie The Thaw (released October 6th, 2009 on DVD) playing Federico Fulce, one of four ecology students who accompany Dr. David Krupien (Val Kilmer) to a remote Arctic research station to examine a thawed out Wooly Mammoth. Unknown to them, the animal is host to a deadly parasite and, after being infected, they must figure out a way to destroy it before it is unleashed on the rest of humanity. The real-world issue of global warming is behind the discovery of the Mammoth in the film and is what initially attracted Schmid to the project.

“I found the whole global warming aspect really interesting because it’s a subject that is becoming increasingly prominent on everybody’s mind nowadays, and the fact that it’s examined within a Sci-Fi type of movie was something that I thought was quite clever,” says the actor.

“As for my character, I’m always attracted to those that start in one place and end up in a completely different one,” continues Schmid. “With Federico, he goes through quite a journey during the film, from a levelheaded top student in his class, to dealing with the loss of a loved one and, ultimately, the Sci-Fi elements of our story. Our characters’ situation becomes one of fight or flight, a kind of natural instinct to survive and realistically what a person would do under such extreme circumstances.

“We shot the first half of the movie in a great location [in British Columbia] called Williams Lake. It’s absolutely amazing country and we actually filmed on a native [Indian] reserve, which allowed us to meet some of the most generous and fascinating people. Their history and culture are beautiful and the stories that they told us on the drives to set were just incredible. At one point, some of us got to go into a ‘sweat,’ which is a big thatched hut that is in total darkness. It has these hot coals in the middle of it that cause you to sweat, while people around you are playing drums and humming. It’s a very interesting out-of-body experience. They treated us so kindly and were wonderful to us. At the end of it all I think everyone had a very spiritual experience in the sense of them taking us in and allowing us to become part of their culture.”

When asked about his Thaw co-stars, Schmid has nothing but good things to share. “Val Kilmer is a fascinating individual and it’s clear to see where his talent lies,” he says. “He plays a major part at the end of the film with my character and it was cool having the chance to work with him. Martha MacIsaac [Evelyn Krupien] is a terrific actress and someone who has been in the industry for a long time but our paths had never crossed before this. Viv Leacock [Bart] always had such an amazing and positive outlook. He’s a family man and he brought his children – a baby boy and three-year-old daughter -to set.

“Coincidentally, prior to this movie, Aaron Ashmore [Atom Galen] and I finished shooting Deep Cove [a.k.a. Fear Island], so between the two projects we got to hang out together for basically two-and-a-half months. We went from that movie, which was a fun but gruelling project to shoot as well, to this one, and to work with someone who you know is going to be right there with you is like going to war with someone who you’ve already been to war with. You want this person by your side, so it was fantastic.”

The actor is equally complimentary of Thaw director Mark A. Lewis, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Michael. “Mark and I got together during the audition process and were able to chat and toss ideas back and forth to each other,” says the actor. “I think we both realized we were on the same page with a number of things, so when it came to working on the film, he was very open to, if necessary, rewriting a scene. And because he wrote the script with his brother, it was like being directed by someone who’d already envisioned the entire process, which he had. So everything flowed. We’d look at each other during a scene and I would know exactly what Mark was thinking, which was great.”

As the actor mentioned, before starting work on The Thaw, he and Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy Olsen in Smallville) were in front of the cameras filming the upcoming horror thriller Deep Cove. In it, five college students spend spring break marooned on an island where they are stalked by a crazed killer.

“Like Federico in The Thaw, my character of Tyler in Deep Cove is someone who also has a great story arc,” enthuses Schmid. “He’s completely different from Federico in that Tyler is a spoiled little jerk who has had everything handed to him and gets away with everything he does wrong, which is probably every adolescent’s dream. It’s tough to describe his arc without giving away the entire plot of the movie, but basically he goes from realizing that having everything handed to him without being penalized for what he might have done wrong is a very ignorant way to live life. I mean, without any real-life experience of knowing what’s right and wrong, you’re never sure how far the consequences might go.”

No matter what character he is playing, Schmid is all about turning in his best performance and having a good time along the way. “When it comes right down to it, the most rewarding part of acting is walking off a set every day knowing you left your best work on the dance floor, so to speak, and smiling while you’re doing it,” he muses. “For me, it’s about taking it all in as well as appreciating the fact that I get to do a job that any number of people would love to do and that at the same time I’m enjoying myself.”
