'Fringe' Set Visit: The Cast Talks Peter's Return, Dueling Universes & New Threats

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 21st 2011 10:00AM
After four episodes of ghostly visitations, disembodied voices and brief cameos in reflective surfaces, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) is back from non-existence, which, ordinarily, would be cause for celebration.

Unfortunately for 'Fringe' fans, there's still the small issue of no one remembering who Peter is, which means that the tearful reunions might be a long time coming -- especially since there's no new episode this week.

Fringe cast
Last month, AOL TV traveled to Vancouver to catch up with the cast of the Fox drama (Fridays at 9PM ET) and find out what's coming up for our intrepid Fringe divisions -- on this side and the other.

After the jump, Anna Torv, John Noble, Jasika Nicole, Seth Gabel and Lance Reddick weigh in on what Peter's return will mean for the team, how the addition of Lincoln will change the character dynamics and how the working relationship between the two universes will evolve. Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Jasika Nicole & Lance Reddick Tease 'Fringe' Friday Night Shockers (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 20th 2011 11:00AM
'Fringe' moves to its new night and time this week, and from what the cast spilled, you'll really want to see how they're coming back ...

I caught up with Astrid and Broyles, a.k.a. stars Jasika Nicole and Lance Reddick, to hear all about the shocking Observer-filled ending to Friday's big return episode (Fri., Jan. 21, 9PM ET on Fox) and the "really beautiful" father-son storyline. And you won't want to miss guest star Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown!) hanging out with John Noble (Doc Bishop!), a pairing that can only be described as "a clash of awesomeness."

The stars also dish about what's next for Olivia/Fauxlivia and Peter, what the alternate universe has made them want for their characters and why the show could turn into 'Glee' -- in a fun way.

'Fringe' Set Visit: Alternate Universe Talk With John Noble & Jasika Nicole

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 23rd 2010 10:10AM
'Fringe' is one of those shows that'll leave your jaw on the floor all season long and still manage to raise the stakes even more in season finales. Last season's cliffhanger ending was no exception.

(Needless to say, if you're not caught up, get caught up! And don't watch or read further unless you want the awesomeness to be spoiled.)

I hit the Vancouver set of 'Fringe' to chat with stars John Noble and Jasika Nicole before the season premiere (Thurs., Sept. 23, 9PM ET on Fox). Watch and see what they spilled about Nolivia/Bolivia/Altlivia/Fauxlivia -- sorry, I just can't pick one! -- and how long it'll take to realize they've got an imposter in their universe.

Also, enjoy Noble's delighted expression when talking about the show's best twist: having Peter and Olivia hook up, just like fans have begged for ... even though she isn't really Olivia. Love it.

The Show Girl's Set Visit-O-Rama: 'Fringe,' 'Private Practice' & 'Community' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 17th 2010 10:00AM
FringeIt's a set visit-o-rama this week, and I've got fun scoop from the casts of some of my favorites: 'Fringe,' 'Private Practice' and 'Community.'

At 'Fringe,' stars John Noble and Jasika Nicole dish about the new season and the issues with Nolivia/Bolivia/Altlivia. (I also have some exciting news about episode 4.) Then I hit 'Private Practice' to talk Shonda Rhimes crossovers -- both the big 'Grey's Anatomy' one this season, and a possible one with her new Hawaii-based Doctors Without Border drama 'Off the Map.'

Then it's over to 'Community,' where Yvette Nicole Brown dream casts her TV sister. (All together now: That's nice.) And I get risky and ask multi-tasker Alison Brie a risque 'Mad Men' question about little Sally Draper's big, um, personal scene this year. (Yes, she blushed.)

Got questions? E-mail me TV questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com and I'll try to get you answers on the show. -- By Maggie Furlong

Fringe Stars Lance Reddick & Jasika Nicole Talk Season 3, Their Alt Selves & More (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 18th 2010 4:30PM
'Fringe' is one of those shows that's managed to change things for its characters dramatically, not once but several times. Season 1 ended with a cliffhanger many fans thought they'd never top ... then came the jaw-dropping season 2 finale.

I caught up with stars Lance Reddick and Jasika Nicole to hear all about what's planned for season 3, and they both agree that the premiere episode will be yet another game changer.

Check out the interview to hear what else they had to say about possibly meeting their alternate selves, the eventual battle between both universes and who'll realize first that -- spoiler alert! -- they've got the wrong Olivia.

'Fringe' - 'Brown Betty' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 30th 2010 9:20AM
Fringe, Brown Betty, Musical Episode
(S02E20) "And together they made goodness and lived happily ever after. The end." - Ella's happier ending to the story

Let's just get this out of the way right now. Lily Pilblad (Ella) and John Noble (Walter) need a LOT more scenes together. In fact, if the unthinkable happens and 'Fringe' is yanked off the air, these two should have their own show together. She's so darn cute, and they act like they've been doing scenes together for years. My favorite was when she was holding the bucket for Jean the Cow, who was happily chomping away while Walter and Ella talked storylines. Way too sweet.

'Fringe' Musical Episode: The Cast Sings! Dances!

by Kelly Woo, posted Apr 29th 2010 11:00AM
'Fringe: The Musical'? Gotta be a joke, right? Even star Jasika Nicole couldn't believe it when she got a script that had singing and dancing. Nicole and her fellow castmates had "joked about it a lot," she told TV Squad on the Vancouver set a few weeks ago. " I didn't think it was really going to happen!"

Oh, it's happening. Tonight's 'Fringe' installment, 'Brown Betty,' features the entire cast in musical performances. It's all part of "Fox Rocks," a week in which the network's shows incorporate music into their episodes. The spooky 'Fringe' might seem the least likely of all Fox's shows to turn into a musical -- but not when you think about how loony-tunes Walter Bishop (John Noble) can be.

Watch our video Q&A with stars Nicole, Lance Reddick and Blair Brown to get the scoop.

'Glee'-Inspired Musical Week on Fox Includes a Singing, Dancing 'Fringe'

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 23rd 2010 11:14PM
Geeks, meet Gleeks.

To kick of the May sweeps, Fox is planning a week of 'Glee'-inspired musical programming, including a musical episode of sci-fi fan fave 'Fringe.' In the April 29 episode, entitled 'Overture,' the show's paranormal investigators will find themselves suddenly breaking out into song and dance numbers.

Turns out a lot of the 'Fringe' cast have music backgrounds, so they were psyched to show off their crooning and hoofing skills as part of the typical weirdness of the show. How do these musical interludes come about? Read on for spoilers.

'Fringe' Star Jasika Nicole Talks Hazmat Suits and Eavesdropping Show Secrets - VIDEO

Jasika Nicole, 'Fringe''Fringe' is one of those shows where everyone gets in on the action sooner or later. And, although it took a season and a half, Astrid Farnsworth -- played by the lovely Jasika Nicole -- is finally getting her turn.

While visiting the show's set in Vancouver, AOL TV got some exclusive dish from Nicole about finally getting out of the lab, getting a gun ... and getting into a hazmat suit? "You haven't even seen the half of it," she excitedly told us. She also talks about their amazing set and dishes fun facts about her favorite farm animal costar, then admits her trick for knowing what's happening with the show. (Hint: she eavesdrops on her castmates.)

Watch our interview now to see the softer side of Astrid, including Nicole's reaction to hearing about another big "wow" moment coming up on the show.

Fringe: Dream Logic

Fringe - Dream Logic
(S02E05) "Whether you admit it or not, your life is something of a nightmare." - Bowling Alley Guy to Olivia

For a minute there, I thought maybe we were in a True Blood crossover with the horned guy in the first few minutes of this episode. But no, it was the usual twisty-turny Fringe-isms involving mind control, computer chips and dream states.

And it appears that something many of us assumed had happened to Peter actually did happen -- though with this show, you can never be sure until it all plays out. It wouldn't surprise me if it's something completely different from what I'm assuming it is. All this, and Mysterious Bowling Alley Guy after the jump ...

Fringe: Momentum Deferred

Fringe: Momentum Deferred with Leonard Nimoy(S02E04) "Momentum can be deferred, but it must always be paid back in full. As I always said to Walter, physics is a bitch." - William Bell to Olivia, on the dangers of jumping universes

Cryonics, frozen heads, worm juice, mercury blood, shapeshifters, and Leonard Nimoy were all featured in this episode, and I loved it all.

Let's start with the worm juice. Olivia must have been seriously craving her William Bell memories to drink that awful stuff. And what a trooper that she was able to keep it down, too. I guess it must have worked. She got some of her memories back, along with some help from the bell -- both the bell they chimed during Rebecca's psychedelic adventure and William Bell. Or Willem, as Olivia used to call him.

Is she right not to trust him? Could he have started the war? It's certainly possible, given his mysteriousness. He said for reasons she might understand later, he couldn't come back to this universe right now, possibly never. Why? What's he doing over there? Is he the one building the army? Is he being forced to? Will he and Walter face off eventually?

Fringe: Fractured

Fringe: Fractured
(S02E03) "Get my portable chemistry set ... this means bodies!" - Walter to Astrid

This episode of Fringe sort of went along without too many shocker moments -- until the last few minutes, that is. I wasn't all that surprised about the serum that turned people into human explosives, or even that it might be part of a top-secret military experiment. But I was wondering when our friend The Observer would turn up again in a big way and dump something spicy all over his plate of food.

Fringe: Night of Desirable Objects

Fringe: Night of Desirable Objects
(S02E02) "We're all victims of our own gene pool. Someone must have peed in yours." - Walter to Sheriff Golightly

Creature feature? Or relevant to the alternate universe storyline? Those were the questions running through my head as I watched this episode of Fringe.

What I believe -- at the moment -- is that all of the creature features we had during season one are somehow relevant to the overall storyline. Since things are slightly different in the alternate universe, perhaps there are creatures there who've evolved or avoided extinction that have somehow made their way back to this universe. Of course, it appears that this episode's creature was created right here.

Read my Fringe theories, and follow me after the jump for commentary on tonight's episode.

I can hardly contain my giddiness that Fringe is back, so ... yay! ... Fringe is back! More mystery! More intrigue! More Walter Bishop! More Jean! More jump-out-of-your-seat moments!

It's been a long summer since we last left the crew with Olivia in another dimension, Walter visiting Peter's grave, and the mysterious William Bell played by the mysterious Leonard Nimoy. Follow me after the jump to explore how the season is shaping up so far ...
