'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.

Comic-Con Q&A: 'Fringe' Panel Highlights & Cast Talking Favorite Moments (VIDEO)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 24th 2011 12:30PM
Joshua Jackson, 'Fringe'So what did the stars and producers of 'Fringe' reveal about the show's fourth season at the show's Comic-Con panel on Saturday? Absolutely nothing. Yet the panel was still enjoyable, even if I have no idea how Peter Bishop will be re-integrated into the world of 'Fringe' when the show returns.

The stars were, of course, willing to talk about 'Fringe''s excellent third season (check out the video interviews below for more on that), and the panel began with a funny video clip -- "auditions" for the role of Peter who, of course, is played by Joshua Jackson.

The actor wasn't scheduled to be part of the panel, but he turned up in an Observer suit and hat as the session was getting underway. So how will his character return when Season 4 begins? "All will be answered, we promise," executive producer J.H. Wyman said.

Just not right now.

Comic-Con 2011: Who Else Auditioned to Play Peter on 'Fringe'? (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 23rd 2011 9:00PM
Fringe, Joshua JacksonDon't you just love hearing stories about the people who were almost cast for huge movie and TV roles? You know like Dana Delany was almost Carrie Bradshaw on 'Sex and the City,' and Matthew Broderick was nearly known as 'Family Ties'' Alex P. Keaton instead of Michael J. Fox.

Well, here's one I hadn't heard: There were about 12 other big names in line to play Peter Bishop on 'Fringe,' as Fox tried to "recast Peter" with Joshua Jackson M.I.A.

Don't believe me? Just take a look at this hysterical video they showed today at Comic-Con, featuring a few former 'Lost' stars (and the 'Lost' boss), a puppet-toting Paul Scheer, someone in our favorite 'Community' (nice stache, Pudi) and, of course, J.J. Abrams regular Greg Grunberg.

Also no spoof video about Jackson would be complete without some 'Dawson's Creek' jokes.

But be sure to watch until the very end to see a super 'Fringe' teaser with a very Observer-like Jackson robotically asking for direction. Spooky!

Melissa McCarthy learns about her Emmy nomination on Live TV.Melissa McCarthy was on live TV when she learned about her 2011 Emmy nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

McCarthy and Joshua Jackson announced the nominees on a broadcast carried by 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). It's safe to say McCarthy was surprised.

After Jackson read the lead actress nominees, a flustered McCarthy had to read the lead actor nominees.

"Okay," she said, breathing deeply, "keep it together." She did, indeed, keep her composure, though she seemed like she wanted to shout and celebrate while reading the actors' names. Click here for a complete list of the Emmy nominees.

'Celebrity Rehab' is back, with a mostly new set of drug-addicted formerly famous people seeking treatment from Dr. Drew and his team of specialists at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

On Friday we talked to a shrink who told us he had serious concerns that the show was exploitative and gave a false impression of what actually happens in real drug rehab.

Today we are much less concerned with that theoretical nonsense and want to discuss all the crazy, terrible and embarrassing things we saw on last night's show. Let's get to it, then.

Joshua Jackson, FringeJoshua Jackson wants YOU! ... to watch 'Fringe' tonight.

If you're a fan of the show, you should probably do as the man says and tune in this evening.

Following a second dramatic ratings dip for his cult hit show that Fox doomed to the Friday death slot, the star has started to campaign for fans to watch the show on Fridays, as opposed to later in the weekend on their DVRs.

"I'm a positive person in general, but we really need our 'Fringe' fans to tune in and watch us on Fridays," Jackson told Entertainment Weekly. "We did good when we first moved, but last week we did not have a good week, ratings wise. It is going to take the people that like the show to watch the show and start the campaign and show their support if they want to see us stick around for another season."

Why You Should Be Watching the Doubly Delicious 'Fringe'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 23rd 2010 3:00PM
Reviews of new shows are full of hedges and what-ifs. Unless we're sent multiple episodes of a new show, critics can't always tell when iffy programs have the potential to become pretty good or even wonderful.

No hedging here: 'Fringe,' which begins its third season at 9PM ET Thursday, has evolved into a terrific show. Now that the Fox drama is consistently telling enjoyably complex and emotionally compelling stories, I'd hate it if 'Fringe' got lost in the fall shuffle.

So I'll start off by begging you to watch 'Fringe,' pretty please, and then I'll share some non-spoilery thoughts about the first two episodes of the third season below.

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.

Comic-Con: 'V,' 'Fringe' and 'Vampire Diaries' Round-Up

fringe_fox_castFull disclosure, spoilerhounds -- I don't watch 'V,' 'Fringe' or 'The Vampire Diaries' (two of them are on my DVR, I swear!) so you'll have to forgive my ignorance in the following bullet-point recap of all three panels; I have no idea of character dynamics (or even names, without the help of IMDB) but I'll attempt to make the round-up as coherent as possible, and you can correct my ignorance in the comments if you so desire.

Though, after the panels and meeting some of the pretty cast members at the Warner Bros. party last night, they've all moved up on my must-watch list!

Needless to say: SPOILER ALERT.

Let's jump in with 'V' ...
