'Chuck' Star Zachary Levi Talks Nerd HQ: A More Intimate Alternative to Comic-Con

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 20th 2011 6:40PM
Zachary Levi sporting Nerd Machine apparelStarting today, thousands of fans, celebrities, industry executives and journalists will make the annual pilgrimage to San Diego for Comic-Con International, a five-day festival of all that is geeky and fantastical.

For some, it's a chance to meet their favorite TV and movie stars, for others, it's to test out the latest video games, while plenty go just to get their hands on the newest comics, merchandise and free swag from studios. What they'd all likely agree on, though, is that with over 120,000 attendees, Comic-Con can be more than a little overwhelming.

Enter Zachary Levi, star of NBC's 'Chuck' and holder of some indisputable geek credibility. Levi is right alongside Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon in terms of commanding a loyal nerd army, eager to follow him from project to project. Having experienced Comic-Con as both an entertainer and a fan, Levi found himself wondering if he could do something to improve the San Diego experience for the people it was supposedly designed for -- to allow fans and the people that they're fans of to interact in a more intimate, low-key setting, while still enjoying the same mecca of merchandise, video games and comic books they've come to know and love from Comic-Con.

Thus, the Nerd HQ was born -- viva la Nerdolution!

Who said Pacey Witter would never amount to anything? A convention -- called Pacey-Con -- was held for the 'Dawson's Creek' character and thousands attended.

Okay, that's not exactly right. Actor Joshua Jackson, who played Pacey and currently stars on Fox's 'Fringe,' crashed Comic-Con with Pacey-Con T-shirts, posters and a video camera and pretended he was at Pacey-Con -- the convention for all things Pacey Witter and 'Dawson's Creek' -- for Funny or Die.

'Human Target' at Comic Con: Make Way for the Ladies -- and William Shatner?

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 25th 2010 1:50PM
human_target_fox'Human Target' is back for a second season. It has a new executive producer Matthew Miller ('Chuck'), who told thousands of fans at Comic Con on Saturday that he's bringing some ladies into Christopher Chance's life.

Indira Varma ('Rome') becomes not only Chance's new client but also his new boss. "She plays a woman who's married to a 'Paul Allen' type, who dies under mysterious circumstances," previews Miller. "She decides that the team has some value and she takes it over. She becomes a female Charlie [Townsend], giving the guys access to a billionaire's toys -- her jets, cars. It'll give the show an international feel."

Miller says the team will also get a new female member, who hasn't been cast yet. "She's a little younger [than Varma's character], 22 years old. She's a thief with a background more similar to Chance and Guerrero's.

"Guys just love to have a woman tell them what to do," chuckles series regular Chi McBride (Winston.) "It'll set up great tension and comedy. Indira isn't bad to look at [either]!"

Fans asked if Mark Valley's real-life military training helps him play Chance. "We had some training when I was a freshman at West Point," he recalls. "We fought with these sticks. I really hit a guy [with mine] and he got angry and beat me up."

'Nikita' Secrets Revealed at Pilot Screening at Comic Con

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 25th 2010 1:00PM
maggie_q_nikitaComic Con devoted three huge rooms for a screening and Q&A session on Saturday for 'Nikita.' The TV series extends the legacy of the famous spy that's been played in previous incarnations by Anne Parillaud, Bridget Fonda and Peta Wilson.

Maggie Q takes on the role in this version, which debuts Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 9PM ET on The CW. The cast also includes Shane West, Lyndsy Fonseca and Melinda Clarke.

The pilot sets up some of Nikita's backstory, her relationships with her former bosses/co-workers in the spy biz and how Fonesca's Alex is recruited to become the next Nikita.

While viewers will learn that Nikita had a relationship with West's Michael, a new dude will enter her life as the series continues.

"It was important for us to come up with a fresh take [on Nikita] that isn't just a rehash," explained Craig Silverstein to Con attendees. "There's now two of them [Nikita and Alex.] You don't know how it's going to end. We're going to be telling the story of how Alex and Nikita got together."

NBC's 'The Event' Gets Huge Buzz at Comic Con

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 25th 2010 11:25AM
jason_ritter_The_event_nbc'The Event' deals with a young man -- Jason Ritter -- who's thrust into the middle of mystical game of espionage as he tries to find his missing girlfriend.

Most of the panel for the NBC series that's best described as part 'Lost' and part '24' was taken up by the screening of the show's pilot. Fans had only about 15 minutes for a moderator-conducted Q&A with the ensemble show's cast, which is headlined by Jason Ritter, Blair Underwood and Laura Innes.

But the good news is that If the crowd reaction was any indication, THIS is the must-see series of the fall. If you're still going through Jack Bauer and Jack Shephard withdrawal, trust us -- Ritter's Sean Walker is your new hero.

Each act break ended on a compelling cliffhanger, the biggest one was saved for the end of the show. Kudos to producers for informing viewers as to when a scene was set by starting each one off with "eight days ago" or "13 hours ago." It would be nice if 'Lost' had done that all shows with big casts and lots of flashbacks would do that.

Creator Nick Wauters explained that there are definitely elements of "mystery, sci-fi, thrillers, and a love story" to 'The Event.' "We wanted to create something that' has a little bit of something for everyone."
