Comic-Con Q&A: The Cast of 'Ringer' Talks About Their Surprising New Show (VIDEO)

Sarah Michelle Gellar at Comic-ConAt Thursday's 'Ringer' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Sarah Michelle Gellar said the surprises in the show were what drew her back to TV.

"I realized it was the first time in a really long time that I had been surprised [by something I'd read]," Gellar said of the drama-thriller, in which she plays twin sisters with double the secrets.


We caught up with the cast -- including Gellar, Nestor Carbonell (who plays a cop), Ioan Gruffud (who plays the husband of one of the sisters) and Kristoffer Polaha (a man with a romantic interest in that same sister) -- before their panel to hear more about the show.

Check out our video interviews to hear more about their characters (including Carbonnel comparing his 'Ringer' character to 'Lost''s Richard Alpert), suspending disbelief, playing things two ways, and the possibilities and plausibility of 'Ringer.'

Comic-Con 2011: Highlights From The CW's 'Ringer' Panel

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 21st 2011 7:45PM
'Ringer' was one of the most anticipated new show panels at this year's Comic-Con. I mean, hello, it's the return of Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, to TV! And she's playing twins!

But the three leading men also got squeals from the crowd as the sizzle reel played before the panel started. Nestor Carbonell ('Lost' fans in the house!), Kris Polaha and Ioan Gruffud are not too shabby themselves.

When the cast took the stage, along with Eric Carmello and Nicole Snyder, the show's executive producers who jumped from 'Supernatural,' and fellow EP Pam Veasay, it was Gellar -- looking gorgeous -- who the crowd went nuts for.

Before the series premieres this fall (Tues., Sept. 13, 9PM ET on the CW), check out a few teases, straight from their Comic-Con panel.

'Lost's' Nestor Carbonell Finds Role on 'Psych'

by Scott Harris, posted Jun 30th 2010 10:20AM
Grab your eyeliner and hang on for dear life, because 'Lost's' immortal mystery man Nestor Carbonell is heading back to the small screen.

Yes, according to Fancast, the man who played the 19th Centruy's original proto-goth Richard Alpert will be appearing on USA Network's 'Psych' for a multi-episode arc during the show's upcoming fifth season. Carbonell is slated to play Declan Rand, who despite the name is neither a 'Battlestar Galactica' pilot nor an extra on 'Legend of the Seeker,' but is rather "a criminal profiler who over the course of two episodes will shape up to be Shawn's professional – as well as romantic – rival."

Of course, coming off such a high-profile gig as 'Lost' may be a challenge for some actors, as some fans will likely have a hard time imagining Carbonell as anyone other than the iconic Others second banana. Luckily for Carbonell, he has plenty of experience off the island as well; besides recurring roles on shows like 'The Tick' and 'Suddenly Susan,' Carbonell also took a brief hiatus from 'Lost' in 2007 to co-star in the ill-fated Jimmy Smits vehicle 'Cane,' which may have flopped but at least reminded viewers that there's life off the island of Carbonell.

'Lost' - 'The Package' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 31st 2010 2:03AM
Yunjin Kim, 'Lost' - 'The Package'(S06E10) Sun and Jin. Star-crossed lovers no matter what reality you're in. But their relationship certainly isn't at the same point on Oceanic 815 in the beta-verse as it was in the alpha-verse; despite things looking rather similar when Jin was yelling at Sun to button up her blouse. How dare she show her sternum! It is rather titillating, isn't it?

Korean was flying everywhere in both realities this week, as alpha-Sun and alpha-Jin continued their molasses-paced efforts to reunite on the island. Meanwhile, we got a hint as to what it's like to be inside alpha-Sayid right now, and it doesn't seem like a place I want to go anytime soon.

As expected, the beta-verse adventures of Sun and Jin coincided nicely with Sayid's beta-adventure, meaning that we got to see the other side of the story that led to Jin being tied to a chair in that restaurant storage room.

'Lost' - 'Ab Aeterno' Recap

'Lost' - 'Ab Aeterno'
(S06E09)
That, my friends, is how you do a halfway point episode! Plenty of answers given, while reaffirming some of what we already knew about the two main players in this island drama. There was no need for an alpha-verse or a beta-verse this week as it was all Richard -- or Ricardo. Besides, there's no way he'd still be alive had he not gone to the island, so beta-verse 2004 must be Richard free anyway. We already know he's been on that island a long, long time.

Now we know just how long that's been. I think absolutely every question we had about Richard and his relationship with Jacob was answered this week. In fact, there were no new questions raised at all that I can think of. That must be a first for 'Lost.'

Nestor Carbonell proved with his performance here that he could easily carry the lead in a dramatic series of his own. With the caliber of acting we're seeing from our 'Lost' cast this season, I'm even more eager to see where their career trajectories take them next.

Richard Alpert on 'Lost': 'We're in Hell' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 24th 2010 3:03AM
Lost, Richard Alpert, Nestor CarbonellWe've known this all along. The passengers of Oceanic Flight 815 aren't really on an island at all. They're in Hell.

"You wanna know a secret, Jack? Something I've known a long, long time?" said Richard Alpert. "You're dead ... we're all dead, every single one of us. And this? All this? It's not what you think it is. We're not on an island. We never were. We're in Hell."

See? Told ya. Hell. Otherwise known as 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). Put the two together and they're Lost in Hell.

'Lost' Creators Want to Get the Finale Right - PaleyFest Report

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Feb 28th 2010 10:11AM
The 'Lost' cast and creators kept their secrets at this year's PaleyFest.Day two of PaleyFest2010, this year's edition of the annual look behind the scenes of television most popular shows, welcomed the creators and cast of 'Lost' to discuss the challenges of forging the show's final season.

Executive producers Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, Eddy Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Liz Sarnoff fielded questions and tried to answer questions about how the show's last episodes will come together -- without leaking any "spoilers." In fact, they took credit for being the show that gave birth to that term.

To digress for a moment, you might ask why a single TV show needs so many "executive producers." The truth is they're writers. Since producers get a fatter check than mere lowly scribes, Hollywood agents make sure their literary clients get that executive producer title attached in the deal memos.

Joining those writers executive producers were series stars Nestor Carbonell, Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn. The group told the 1,900 fans and industry insiders at the Saban Theatre (the house the Power Rangers built) they just wrapped production on the penultimate episode, and writing is underway on the show's final outing.

'Lost' - 'The Substitute' Recap

'Lost' - 'The Substitute'
(S06E04)
The numbers! The numbers!

Lindelof and Cuse have been teasing us for a while now that they might not reveal the significance of the numbers. Without doing so directly, I think they gave us something huge connected to them tonight. Finally, after a lackluster episode last week we're getting some information we can sink our teeth into. Locke-centric episodes always seem to be good for that.

The character connections in the flash-sideways reality were really coming at us hard and heavy tonight, with appearances by several favorites as we discovered how John's life could have been. It would appear that some things have definitely gone better for our paralyzed friend, while in some other respects he's the same sad sack John Locke we came to know and love over the past five seasons.

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

Evangeline Lilly as Kate Austen on ABC's 'Lost.'
(S06E03) "It's the Others, dude. They caught us ... again." - Hurley

As 'What Kate Does' unfolded, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that everything we're witnessing in the "post-Jughead worked" 2004 time-line is going to end up being very important. Of course, that could have been due to the fact that in this past week's Official 'Lost' Audio Podcast, Cuse and Lindelof essentially laid it bare for us -- there is no alternate reality happening here. What's going on in LA in 2004 and what's going on in 2007 on the island are both very real.

The question to ask is what effect actions in one time-line will have on the events in the other. As far as 'Lost' mindf#%ks go, this one is a doozie, because it's forced us to reevaluate everything we remember about these characters, right back to the pilot episode.

Review: 'Lost' - 'LA X, Parts 1 and 2' (Season Premiere)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 3rd 2010 1:43AM
Lost premiere
(S06E01/S06E02) "We're back." - Kate

Did you hear that? That was the collective sound of TV fans across the country all brain-farting in unison. 'Lost' is back for its final season and I've gotta be honest -- I'm not really sure what to think about 'LA X.' In four or five months time, once the series has concluded, I'm positive I'll think differently about it. However, right now, 'LA X' was easily one of the most confusing hours of 'Lost' yet, and despite ABC's promos promising that "questions would be answered," all it gave us was a jumbo-jet (literally) chock full of new ones. Whatever ... I still loved every second of it.

Nestor Carbonell Previews the Final Season of 'Lost'

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 2nd 2010 10:01AM
nestor carbonell lostWe're only hours away from the premiere of the final season of 'Lost'. I'm excited, you're excited, and Richard Alpert himself, Nestor Carbonell, is right there with us.

I spoke to Carbonell recently about his role in the show's much-anticipated endgame. Needless to say, there are some big things in store for our favorite ageless Other, and Carbonell is looking forward to showing fans a whole new side of Richard (or should we call him Ricardus?).

He obviously couldn't spill all of the show's big secrets, but he was surprisingly candid about what we could expect from his character this year. Will we learn why Richard doesn't appear to age? Will his bond to Jacob be explored? Head after the jump to find out ... Minor spoilers follow.

Matthew Fox
(S05E16/S05E17) "See you in Los Angeles." - Jack

I'm not really sure where to begin, but I think this is a pretty good starting point: holy crap. Just like every season finale before this one, Lost has once again left us all with our jaws on the floor and our brains on overdrive. This changes everything. The big question? How does it change everything? Is it January yet?

Lost: Follow the Leader

(L-R) Yunjin Kim, Terry O'Quinn, Nestor Carbonell, and Michael Emerson
(S05E15) "I have a purpose now." - Locke

I can't believe how fast this season of Lost has gone by. There's probably a time-travel joke buried in that realization somewhere, but my head is still spinning from "Follow the Leader," so I'm not really in clever witticism mode. Honestly, I'm speechless. For the most part, this wasn't one of my favorite episodes of the season. But for me to be at a loss for words at one of Lost's sub-par installments - well that says something about the quality of this show. "Follow the Leader" was a lot of set up for next week's two hour finale and the events that have been set in motion (even though it seems they always happened) are mind-numbing.

Lost: Because You Left (season premiere)

Matthew Fox and Michael Emerson
(S05E01) "You're gonna have to die, John." - Richard Alpert

Time travel! The future is now! later! here! gone! beginning! ending! OK, I give up. Lost is back and the future is... well, we don't know what the future is. Or the past. Or the present. All we know is what they were, because now they're just one big time travelin' mess.

As with seasons past of Lost, the fifth chapter of TV's favorite mindf*ck opens by presenting an entirely new storytelling technique - one that demands equal parts patience, attention, and imagination. More than anything, it's a test for true fans because the casual Lost viewer (do they exist?) probably had a hard time moving from A to Z (worst metaphor ever - I know) in tonight's season premiere. That being said, this whole hour gave me my own bloody nose.
