Jeri Ryan Talks 'Star Trek' Stalkers and Conventions on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 3:00AM
Jeri Ryan, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Jeri Ryan's Seven of Nine was at the same time one of the most popular 'Star Trek' characters and one of the most polarizing among hardcore fans. Plus, as is evident by anyone who saw her on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Ryan is a beautiful woman. This is a dangerous combination, as she learned when she picked up a couple of stalkers along the way.

It got so bad that she had to stop going to conventions for awhile, but the actress admits that she's back to going to them, with one minor change. "Now they've beefed up the security so I can go again," she said.

'Warehouse 13' Star Saul Rubinek on Season 3, Guest Stars and Why It's the Best Show Out There

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Aug 30th 2011 9:15AM
It's not easy to find a show the whole family can enjoy together these days, but SyFy's 'Warehouse 13' (which airs on Showcase in Canada) boasts a cross-generational appeal that has something for everyone. That's probably why the unique show has cultivated such a large and devoted following.

The show follows the Secret Service personnel tasked with working at Warehouse 13, which is home to every bizarre (and potentially dangerous) artifact the U.S. government has ever collected. In Season 3, newcomer Aaron Ashmore joins the cast as the warehouse's latest recruit.

We caught up with Saul Rubinek ('Frasier, 'Unforgiven'), who plays warehouse caretaker Artie Nielsen, to pry as many details about Season 3 out of him as possible. It was not an easy task. Like his character Artie, Rubinek is skilled at guarding secrets.

'Leverage' - 'The Maltese Falcon Job' Recap

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 18th 2010 1:20AM
Leverage
(S02E15) "My job is to get your back, all the way down, but I need you to do your job." - Eliot to Nathan

"What's that?" - Nathan

"Be Nathan Ford, be the person we came back for." - Parker


My eyes have only seen a few episodes of 'Leverage,' and my brain is just now starting to understand its appeal. (My bodily organs don't work very well together. It's a long story. Words were said, tempers flared, pancreases made an off-color remark about someone else's mother. Enough said.)

Sure on the surface it appears to be a mid-adrenaline, action-adventure spy/mystery/crime show, but the season finale gave it an emotional depth and character progression that even most serious dramatic shows fail to accomplish. And it goes way beyond "not sucking."

Review: Leverage - The Zanzibar Marketplace Job

(S02E12) "[Nathan's] drinking is not a problem. It's a symptom." - Eliot to Tara


Action dramas don't have to be so layered. As long as the screen is filled with lots of explosions and tough guys with their backs to them, smirking at the camera as if to say, "Oh yeah, that's an explosion behind me and I caused it. I'm a badass, even if I would face federal charges for detonating an explosive device in a public area. So who out there wants to sleep with me?"

Even though this week's Leverage had a couple of moments like that, it still managed to be more layered in both its plot and characters than it has a right to be.

Review: Leverage - The Bottle Job

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 21st 2010 10:00AM
(S02E11) Leverage has the thankless task of walking one of the most difficult tightropes in television writing.

How do you keep an audience interested in a show that they already know how it will end? The good guys always win and have so far for TNT's favorite scheming do-gooders.

The show runners must have a whole bag of plot tricks and devices they use to keep the show interesting and last night's was one of the most interesting diversions to keep our minds off the fact that good is about to triumph evil.

Review: Leverage - The Runway Job (mid-season premiere)

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 13th 2010 11:01PM

(S02E10) "Tara Cole is the best. I wouldn't have sent her if I didn't trust her and I know you're going to love her, so just give her a chance." - Sophie to Parker, Alec and Elliot/"Well, she is hot." - Elliot


No one makes for a better enemy than some kind of ruthless fashion designer. They are the epitome of bloodsucking evil. They want everything, produce nothing and expect to get even more than everything for even less. They are the real world equivalent of a James Bond villain, only not as tastefully dressed.

So it's a perfect way to reacquaint us with the wily antics of Nathan Ford and company as they permeate the seedy underbelly of the world's most powerful evil, even if the way they take them down does have a tiny number of noticeable holes.

Jeri Ryan Gets More 'Leverage'

by Michael Maloney, posted Jan 13th 2010 9:00AM
Jeri Ryan Appears on 'Leverage'If viewers didn't find grifters somewhat like-able they'd never root for them to win. So it was a no-brainer for producers to cast the extremely like-able Jeri Ryan ('Shark', 'Star Trek: Voyager') as dynamic and duplicitous Tara Cole, who last summer joined the band of double-crossers led by Timothy Hutton on 'Leverage.' The TNT drama returns (for what are being called 'winter episodes') starting Wed., Jan. 13 at 10 p.m. ET.

AOL TV chatted with the captivating Ryan about why Tara is so much fun to play, her many lawyer roles (including one on Law & Order: SVU that was difficult to play) and what kind of role she'd like to tackle next.

Leverage mid-season return -- An early look

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 10:30AM

My TV has been waiting for a show like Leverage. It's also been waiting for a new TV stand and a more slender, attractive person to look back at, but it's not getting either until it drops the attitude.

It's one of those few shows that blends together the things that make other TV shows so great. It's got the action packed, tense drama of an episode of 24, the wry and sharp wit of Frasier and the complex and twisted plot logic of any episode of Lost.

The only difference is unlike 24, the action doesn't overtake the front seat from the drama at gun point. Unlike Frasier, it doesn't find comedy by talking so far over the average audience's head that frost has to form on their forehead in order for them to appreciate it. And unlike Lost, your head doesn't explode by the end of every episode.

Another Star Trek actor joins TNT's Leverage

by Mike Moody, posted Jun 26th 2009 2:07PM
jeri ryan in leverage tntBeing a nerd, I'm very familiar with Jeri Ryan's career. She helped make Star Trek: Voyager watchable for a while as a self-aware Borg and recently starred in CBS' Shark alongside James Woods. But it was her work on the David Kelley shows Boston Public and Boston Legal that has me thinking she'll be a good fit for Leverage.

The actress handled Kelley's sharp dialogue like a pro, and I'm guessing she'll bring the same confidence to her role as a "smart-ass, street-wise con woman" on the second season of Leverage. Ryan has signed on for a recurring role on the TNT heist drama. Her character will be a friend of Sophie's (Gina Bellman), Leverage's sexy grifter with a bag full of tricks and foreign accents.

Shark: Wayne's World 2 (season finale)

by Michael Canfield, posted May 4th 2007 10:01AM
Shark(S01E22) Billy Campbell is back as Wayne the serial-killer, now in the middle of an O.J., If I Did It, -style book tour. Larry King, playing himself for the umpteenth time in a crime drama, interviews Wayne, albeit with eyes glued to cue-cards. Larry asks the kind of pointed challenging questions here that only the fictional Larry King is even know to ask. This cameo affords the most fun moment of the night, however: Stark after arresting Wayne during a commercial break in the interview, and never one to pass by a camera, sits down to join Larry for the final segment.

Shark: Wayne's World

by Michael Canfield, posted Jan 19th 2007 1:42PM
Shark starring James Woods(S01E12) After the last episode's hyper-ballistic antics, I looked forward to seeing Shark's return to good old psychological terror. Billy Campbell (The 4400), still sporting most of the beard and flowing Jesus-locks he grew on his round-the-world sailing trip a year or two ago, guest stars as serial killer Wayne. He is a more formidable villain than we've seen Stark face before. Don't even talk to me about that fizzle of an international arms dealer: the unfortunately-named Khan.

Anyway, sociopathic Wayne chooses to defends himself at trial, which puts his single surviving victim in the terrible position of being cross-examined by her own tormentor. That has happened in a few notable real-world cases, and probably a dozen Law and Order episodes, but it's an intense dilemma worthy enough of a go-around here.

Shark: Dial "M" for Monica

by Michael Canfield, posted Nov 24th 2006 10:10AM
Stark(S01E09) Anyone not too stuffed on turkey and passed out by early-evening got the chance to see Sebastian Stark search for the murderer of one of his own, when an A.D.A. is gunned down, alongside a woman not his wife.

When he gets the call, err ... the text message, Stark is out trying to convince his daughter Julie to let him buy her a $2000 dress for some event Julie's not that shallow, but it does beg the question: how is Stark managing to maintain his lifestyle on a Los Angeles County salary? Ah, never mind, Stark's hardly the first television character to live beyond his means. Maybe he invests well.
