At WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, California on Friday, actors Matt Bomer (Magic Mike) and Molly Quinn (TV's Castle), as well as screenwriter Bob Goodman (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), and casting/voice director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) appeared in front of a packed arena crowd for the world premiere of the latest DC Universe Animated Original Movie - Superman: Unbound, which was followed by a panel discussion about the film.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a chance to speak with Matt Bomer, Molly Quinn, Bob Goodman, and Andrea Romano before the screening and panel on Friday about their new film. The actors and filmmakers discussed the new movie, its impressive cast, the classic Geoff Johns written comic book it is based on, and the legacy of Superman.
ABC’s Castle keeps getting it right by constantly keeping it fresh and next week’s brand new film noir episode that takes us back in a time machine to the 1940’s is no exception. Entitled The Blue Butterfly, fans will get to follow novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), as they investigate the killing of a treasure hunter. In true Castle-style, there is an ominous twist when they discover that the current case is linked to a mysterious homicide from 1947 that involved a hard-nosed private detective. Of course with Castle on the case, all involved are lured into his theory that the only way in which to solve this present-day murder is to solve the mystery from the past. Through stylized flashbacks with Castle as the private eye and Beckett as a femme fatale, the 1947 case is resurrected.
Cast member Tamala Jones (Medical Examiner, Lanie Parish) speaks about her character’s 1947 alter-ego as well as this most special of episodes that she is calling her all-time favorite. “We had the best time ever making this one! This is my personal favorite and everyone is just going to love it!” Excited that Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural, The Closer) is guest starring as Tom Dempsey, she says of his performance, “He plays a mean gangster that owns the nightclub that my character, Betsy, sings in.” Also guest starring in this episode are Patrick Cassidy as Clyde Belasco, Chad Everett as Jerry Maddox, Ellen Geer as Viola Maddox and Darin Toonder as Frankie.
Finally there is a reason to love Mondays and that reason is ABC’s hit show Castle. With three very successful seasons under their belts, this show simply continues to get better with each passing episode. Monday January 9th is one very special episode, Till Death Do Us Part, which fans have been waiting for since last season because someone in this brilliantly cast ensemble is entering into wedded bliss.
