Dragon*Con 2009: BSGcast: Matt talks with Lt. Dualla (Kandyse McClure)

Courtesy of the ever-awesome YourGeekNews/BSGcast:

First in our DragonCon interviews, Matt chatted with the beautiful and talented Kandyse McClure who played Anastasia Dualla for almost the entire run of the series… almost. So consider this your spoiler warning! From her thoughts on the growth of her character, to what she’s up to now, Kandyse gives us a great peek into what makes her, and Dee, tick!

DONT WATCH THE ENDING KANDYSE!! It was awful after the first half!!! IMO, I mean Starbuck was an angel? What about the ship?? What a massive cop-out! They could’ve had another Cylon hub of some sort with resurrection tech on the planet Starbuck’s DNA drifted down to or something and her half Cylon DNA could have activated the Centurions who brought her back..and the Baltar followers suddenly willingly give up their guns and tech to go live off the land? Mmm nah. They could’ve done a great tie in with tech the Egyptians had or heck the Atlanteans had, and BSG explaining why…give me something to work with RD Moore!

True Blood: Michelle Forbes on Maryanne…

Awesome exclusive interview with SciFiWire, go read the whole thing!!:

As the finale looms, the stage is set for one hell of a battle as the only good guys left in Bon Temps—including Sookie, Bill (Stephen Moyer), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy—try to stop Maryann and her minions from carving the heart out of Sam so that Dionysus will finally appear. How it will all end Forbes won’t tell, but she does rank the character as one of her favorites.

“She loves her mischief and having her fun along the way,” Forbes said with a laugh. “She has a different understanding of the world and this particular plane. She doesn’t see an end in the road the way everyone else does, because she has no time constraints and no moral constraints. And in playing her it is impossible for me to see her as a villain.

But the same can be said of any character that I have played. Admiral Cain [of Battlestar Galactica], you could say she was a villain, but the beauty of Ron Moore’s writing is that there was logic in what she did and said. The thing about Maryann, too, is that the writers have always given her a beautiful logic in what she says. I just love the entire story. I had no idea where it was going in the beginning. I, however, especially with Maryann, really enjoyed the sense of not knowing.”…

More from Jeremy Beyer at the Examiner:

Cabin in the Woods is “The horror movie to end all horror movies” according to writer Joss Whedon. Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) who also directs, it is part horror movie, part reality TV, and part comedy.

The basic premise of the movie is the standard “group of teenagers go into the woods to party” formula. Unbeknownst (sp) to them they are being manipulated by a pair of white collar business men who have their own agenda….
