I thought I'd get the ball rolling on media mentions. Feel free to suggest a better title. I'm not exactly the greatest with clever quips.

Hulu has several tidbits to share. There are cast interviews, albeit brief ones, with Anna Torv, John Noble, and Joshua Jackson. There's also an interview with J.J. Abrams. There are several web exclusive clips. One that sounded fairly interesting was "Three Dozen Incidents." Here's the link. Hopefully, I'll eventually have the time to check them all out.

I also posted this link in the Ratings and Scheduling Thread because you can view the pilot and second episode there, too. You do have to sign up at Hulu, but it's free. You still have to watch a couple of commercials.

Chris Moyles from BBC did a 37 minute interview with JJ Abrams. It isn't all about Fringe but he does talk about "hidden clues" in this show and things like that.

Heart be still. At first by "out," I thought you meant off the show, gone the way of Judy from Family Matters who went upstairs never to be seen or heard from again.

This news is much better. Glad that Jasika feels comfortable being an out lesbian.

Mark Valley talks about John Scott. I think I may love him. Mark, that is, not John. I can't get the image of a washed-out John slitting that guy's throat in the hospital, and that eliminates him from TV boyfriend contention, even if he was a figment. But Mark sneezes in the interview, and then works it into his discussion about the difference between Mark and John. Hee!

The site also has an interview with Anna Torv, from a few weeks ago.

OK, this isn't exactly Fringe in the media, but Fringe-fringe science in the media: I just watched The Rachel Maddow Show and there was a brief story about scientists in Japan extracting images from people's brains. There wasn't a lot detail, but I think it's quite likely that the scientists methods were really different than Walter's eye-image extraction.

Question...does anybody follow the Fringe podcast on Itunes? I saw it and subscribed way back in September, but I haven't gotten around to listening to any of them, and I'm wondering if they're worth the time.

The "official" podcast is a bust (and not likely official). There are several others that are pretty decent: Fringe Dwellers and ?The Fringe Podcast? spring to mind.

Cool Fox promotion tidbit:

I just saw The Observer on the sidelines of the Eagles vs Giants NFL division round playoff game. They were introducing one of the team's offensive starters and there he was Observing the football game.

I heard on the radio on the way in to work this morning that Joshua Jackson is a guest on The Hour tonight. George always does great interviews, so it's going to be a definite PVR appointment for me.

Maybe Joshua will do an installment of "Best Story Ever" or will be the focus of their opening sequence. Those are always highly amusing.

This interview with Kirk Acevedo was posted by Fox Fix. He talks about Charlie's intentions, and a theory he hard about a Lost-Fringe connection.

I am so happy to see him get some attention in this role. I've loved him since he was Joe Toye in Band of Brothers.

Fringe stars to appear at New York Comic Convention next weekend. I thought it would've been mentioned in these parts. Nice roster, though I'm disappointed the cow won't be making the trip.

Since there seems to be no "in real life" thread in this forum I suppose a few tidbits from the New York Comic Con panel can go here.

Anna Torv seemed very sweet but nervous and out of her element, and gave kind of short boring answers. I suspect she doesn't have experience with these kinds of fan events. She did gamely agree to help one audience questioner "test" his "telepathy device", supposedly for credit in a college course (ha!), which turned out to consist of an actual literal tinfoil hat which she donned briefly while the guy put on an identical hat and pretended to try to read her mind. Sometimes audience members ask the lamest "questions" at cons....

Either John Noble was putting on a Walter act for the fans, or the man is seriously eccentric in real life. He grinned a lot in a rather alarming way, rattled off wildly confusing answers in mile a minute stream of consciousness sentence fragments, and blithely ignored the microphone in front of him, to the point that Joshua Jackson even leaned over to move it closer to his mouth (in a very Peteresque way). When you could understand a word he was saying he spoke very intelligently about doing extensive research on mental illness for the role. When asked if perhaps the mysterious William Bell would turn out to be Walter himself (not a spoiler of any kind, purely the wildest of speculation), he responded with something incomprehensible along the lines of "Well, it's interesting to think about Walter being William Bell, but the important issue is, is Walter Walter", which he delivered as if it were a zen koan and then sat back smiling like the cat that ate the canary.

Kirk Acevedo told an anecdote about one of the extras playing a victim on the bus filled with goo, who was terribly ill when they were filming the laid-out "bodies" and was throwing up while playing dead covered in goop from head to toe. Uck.

Josh Jackson stole the show. I don't remember everything he said but I do remember him complaining bitterly about freezing his ass off watching the Giants/Eagles game from nosebleed seats and then seeing on the scoreboard that the Observer got to be on the 50 yard line! At one point someone asked him and John Noble about the father-son relationship; the question was something along the lines of well, did you just fall into it naturally or did you have to work to "hone your bond". Jackson's face lit up with humor, he hoisted an eyebrow wickedly, turned to Noble, waited a comic beat and asked "John, have you honed our bond?" I wish I could do justice to the delivery. Noble grinned in a truly psychotic-looking manner, stared out at the audience and... said nothing whatsoever. For an uncomfortably long time. The whole thing was basically an Andy Kaufman routine.

The producer (so sorry, I don't remember his name) said that one of the reasons he really loves Fox is that they devoted a lot of time and effort to trying to get the Observer on the podium at Obama's inauguration.

EW says that if the show is renewed for next season, filming will be moved to Vancouver, to save on production costs.

There's going to be a press conference at Kaufman Astoria Studios on Monday at 1 PM regarding the New York State tax incentive program. The local unions, guilds, vendors, and crew members are trying to get the program extended to keep all of the jobs in New York.

TV Guide has started a series of video Q&As with John Noble. The accompanying text, though, wanders into spoiler territory; the videos probably will, too.
