Actors in Limbo: Second Position Pilot Role Breakdown

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 5th 2011 11:00AM
Becki Newton, Martin HendersonWhat do Martin Henderson, Becki Newton, Ryan Hansen and Rachelle Lefevre have in common? Well, they're all actors with pilot roles in second position to their current series gigs.

It's not strange for an actor to a take a pilot role in second position to a ratings-challenged series. However, what's pretty strange is both Lefevre and Henderson currently star in 'Off the Map' and have both been tapped for NBC's 'The Crossing.'

According to Deadline, the post-Civil War drama will see Henderson as Jason, a soldier who treks across the country and winds up in a town that welcomes him as a savior. Lefevre will play a war widow in the Missouri town Henderson's character settles in.

Does NBC know something we don't? Are they just not that into 'The Crossing' or do they just really love 'Off the Map'? We may never know.

Zach Gilford Gets Goofy on 'Off the Map' Set (VIDEO)

Zach Gilford, 'Off the Map'The most nail-biting dramas often have the funniest sets. When long days are filled with take after take of someone dying on the operating table, downtime naturally becomes prank time.

So when I visited the 'Off the Map' set on a particularly busy day -- shooting a scene of the surgical aftermath of a hang-gliding accident, which you'll see at the end of the season -- I wasn't surprised to find the cast giggly, playful and ready to have fun between shots.

But who's the king of the jokes? The funniest when the cameras stop rolling? There's no doubt that man is 'Friday Night Lights' alum Zach Gilford. And as I learned in not one but three of my other cast interviews, he doesn't always wait for the cameras to stop before popping in with some goofball antics.

Check out this adorable behind-the-scenes look at the cast of 'Off the Map' (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on ABC) after the jump.

'Off the Map' Stars Tease Tonight's Underwater Amputation (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 9th 2011 10:00AM
'Off the Map'TV shows -- especially medical dramas -- love to tease that they're doing something you've never seen on TV before, but I actually think that's true of this week's 'Off the Map.' And I've seen a lot.

'Off the Map' (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on ABC) has already featured a zip-line accident, tuberculosis, a severe electrocution and a large anaconda wrapped around a man, seemingly suffocating him, but actually keeping his insides from coming out ... and they've only aired four episodes!

This week, their patient runs into trouble while scuba diving, and the docs have to perform an impromptu underwater amputation to save her. It's like 'Grey's Anatomy' meets '127 Hours,' with scuba gear.

Curious? I was lucky enough to catch up with the cast on the show's set in Hawaii (thanks ABC!), and they dished about this week's big story.

Check out the video interview with stars Martin Henderson, Valerie Cruz, Zach Gilford and Rachelle Lefevre after the jump.

Outside the Box Interview With 'Off the Map' Stars

'Off the Map' Outside the Box Interview with Rachelle Lefevre, Martin Henderson, Jason George, Valerie Cruz, Zach Gilford, Mamie Gummer and Jonathan CastellanosShooting in Hawaii isn't all fun and games (mostly) for the cast of 'Off the Map,' as we found out when they sat down for our Outside the Box interview show.

Rachelle Lefevre, Martin Henderson, Jason George, Valerie Cruz, Zach Gilford, Mamie Gummer revealed that and Jonathan Castellanos when the script calls for it, they are conscripted to perform their own stunts ranging from swimming in a "disease-infested" river to throwing themselves in front of a moving car ... going 2 miles an hour!

So, reality doesn't much compare to the hardships the characters endure on the show, which features doctors working in the remote jungles of South America. Still, at least one cast member professed to be squeamish about blood, and on a medical drama, blood can't be avoided.

Watch as the cast members talk about stunts and blood, as well as getting used to medical jargon and their off-camera guilty pleasures.

Juju Chang Tries to Nickname 'Off the Map's' Martin Henderson 'McHotty' (VIDEO)

Martin Henderson from 'Off the Map' on 'Good Morning America'The main message to take away from Martin Henderson's appearance on 'Good Morning America' (Weekdays, 7AM on ABC) today is that Juju Chang thinks he's attractive, which should be a major factor for anyone tuning into tonight's premiere of 'Off the Map.' As Chang pointed out, the show is from the producers of 'Grey's Anatomy,' and from the promos, it looks a lot like 'Grey's' set in a remote South American village.

Chang made several references to Henderson making the ladies in the room warm, and then pointed out that since 'Grey's Anatomy' had given us "McSteamy" and "McDreamy," Henderson would also need a nickname. "A few of us have decided that you could be McHottie," said Chang.

Is there still hope for Mr. and Mrs. Smith?

by Adam Finley, posted May 18th 2007 2:03PM

jordana brewsterABC decided not to pick up the pilot for Mr. and Mrs. Smith starring Jordana Brewster and Martin Henderson (based on the movie of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie).

That does not mean, however, that we'll never see it. Regency and Dutch Oven, the production companies behind the series, had an "early release" in its contract according to the Hollywood Reporter, and they plan to start shopping the series around to other networks.

Smith focuses on the lives of the titular couple six months after the movie ends. They're still married, and they they still assassinate people. Doug Liman, who directed the feature film, also directed the pilot.

The cast of Mr & Mrs Smith

Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Swingers) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) have signed on to try and transform their movie to the small screen.
