To anyone who watched Firefly & Serenity, you understand how I feel about the actors. I loved the characters they portrayed, and once it went riding off into the sunset on the silver screen (well before its time), I want the actors to at least go on to bigger projects... hoping to see them once again on screen. I thought I would gather up some information on what they've been up to (mostly via imdb, albeit).
Its unfortunately been a rough time for Joss. After Serenity made its run through the theaters, he was tapped to write a Wonder Woman screenplay. After working on it for about a year, the studio decided it wasn't working and moved on. I'm not sure what he's been up to since, but imdb has a mysterious project listed... though no one seems to know exactly what it is. So I guess we're in a wait and see mode.
There is no reason why he can't be the next Harrison Ford if given the chance (and Ann agrees... an even better one). Ann and I this past weekend supported our local indy theater with a showing of Namesake (a fantastic movie by the way... highly recommended... and apparently a very good book -- Ann read it). I got very excited during the previews seeing the trailer for his next film. Looks to be a small film with a good cast. I never did see Slither... just not my cup of tea. But hopefully there is more mainstream work coming his way.
Looks like a handful of projects... On a side note... Party of Five?? Anyway, I can't imagine how hard it is to make it in the entertainment business with the limited amount of work they seem to do a year.
More TV work for Ron. He's done actually quite a bit in his career. When I first checked his page on imdb, it was barely filled in, aside from Firefly & Serenity. He has been around the block! Hasn't done much since Serenity though.
So there you have it. A one stop shop recap. Hope you enjoyed this edition. Stay tuned for more (maybe an annual thing...)
