(Boston, MA, January 28, 2013) - The popular PBS KIDS series Martha Speaks continues its fourth season with a special episode featuring actress and super mom Jennifer Garner. Garner, mother to three young children with actor/director Ben Affleck, will be animated alongside her dog, whose name also happens to be Martha. Her appearance on Martha Speaks adds to her advocacy efforts on behalf of children's literacy. Garner, whose mom was an English teacher, is an artist ambassador for Save the Children's early education programs and has worked to promote legislation that ensures quality early education and literacy for children.
"Ms. Garner shares the same passion for reading and dogs we do," says executive producer Carol Greenwald. " We were thrilled to have her lend her talents to this episode."
In "Too Many Marthas," Martha is asked to sing at an animal rescue fundraiser and she's thrilled. But on the day of the concert, Martha gets mixed up with another Martha - a dog belonging to a lady named Jennifer (Jennifer Garner). Can Martha help Jennifer locate her missing pup before it's time to sing? Kids can tune-in and learn new words like number, aria, and a capella.
Also airing is the brand-new episode "Too Much Martha." In this episode, Martha's constant pursuit of snacks has added some extra pounds and the vet says she needs to lose some weight. The family resolves to help Martha control her portions and maintain a balanced diet, but when Martha learns what this means, she's pretty fed up. No more late-night pizza?
Tune in for this brand-new Martha Speaks Monday, February 4, 2013 on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
About Martha Speaks
Martha Speaks works to help increase children's oral vocabulary - and how better to get kids excited about learning new words than with a dog who just can't stop talking? Throughout the episode, Martha teaches young children vocabulary words like famous, admire, understudy, and more.

Jennifer Garner's up for an Alias reboot (but there's one catch) Jennifer Garner's up for an Alias reboot (but there's one catch)

Long before J.J. Abrams was the darling of Hollywood, he was the mind behind one of the most wildly awesome (and occasionally off-the-rails) series with ABC's Alias. Turns out original star Jennifer Garner (Daredevil, Elektra) is actually up for getting the band back together—she just has one little requirement.So, what would it take to bring the coolest spy-fi series back to life? Not surprisingly, she'll only do it if Abrams is the man pulling the strings again. He captured lightning in a bottle for a few seasons of the original series, and Garner told Fretts On Film she'd only risk it if she knew it had his stamp of approval: "I don't see him turning around and rebooting 'Alias' anytime soon. If he did it and he was involved, I'm sure the rest of us would sign right up. We had a blast making that show and we're all still super close, so I'm sure you would find an eager group of participants right there."
Garner's star was on the rise when the series ended, but she hasn't done much lately (she's currently co-starring in the new Disney family film The Odd Life of Timothy Green), so it makes sense that she'd be open to a potential return to glory. Storywise, the show got a little crazy by the end, but when Abrams could balance the fantastic with the spy stuff, it worked—and could work again.What do you think? Would you come back for more Alias? (Via The Huffington Post) source:

Mia Maestro's ready to find a new "Alias" and Shannon Lucio wants to prove there's life after "Spring Break Shark Attacks."

The two leading ladies are part of a busy day of pilot casting buzz.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Maestro will join LL Cool J and Melinda Clarke in CBS' "The Man," playing a doctor with close ties to the show's central undercover cop.

Maestro played Nadia on ABC's "Alias" and has also appeared in the features "Poseidon" and "Secuestro Express."

Lucio, best known as Lindsay from "The O.C.," has taken one of the leads in CBS' very "Angel"-esque drama about a vampire (Alex O'Laughlin) who works as a private investigator. Lucio will play a TV reporter in the pilot.

Also at CBS, Hector Elizondo will play the family patriarch in the untitled drama from Cynthia Cidre. Formerly titled "Los Duques," the show focuses on a multi-generational Latin American family in the rum business and also stars Jimmy Smits, Nestor Carbonell and Rita Moreno.

Elizondo has an upcoming role on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and has a long list of feature credits including "The Flamingo Kid," "Pretty Woman" and the upcoming "Georgia Rule."

Victor Garber (Alias) has been tapped to star opposite Jonny Lee Miller in ABC's drama pilot Eli Stone, a high-concept legal drama about Eli Stone (Miller),
a brilliant attorney at the top law firm in San Francisco who finds out he might be a prophet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Eli is produced by
Touchstone Television and the studio-based Berlanti Television.

Garber will play the senior partner at the firm, the most respected attorney in town, who happens to be the father of Stone's fiancee.

Casting for the role had been going on for several months, and ABC and Touchstone TV are said to have jumped at the opportunity to recruit Garber when he
became available after the November cancellation of his Fox/Warner Brothers TV freshman drama Justice.

For five seasons, Garber starred as Jack Bristow on ABC's spy drama Alias, a role that earned him three Emmy nominations.

Josh Appelbaum, previously a producer on "Alias", is now writing the new CBS show "october Road".

"Alias' Grunberg Hooks Up
Greg Grunberg, who plays Agent Eric Weiss in ABC's Alias, told SCI FI Wire that he gets a girl and got to fly a helicopter in upcoming episodes that put his otherwise deskbound character in the thick of the action. "Finally Weiss is getting some action," Grunberg said in an interview at ABC's winter press preview in Universal City, Calif. "Both in his personal life and on the missions, which is nice. They hooked me up [with Nadia Santos, played by Mia Maestro]. And she's wonderful, and ... I don't want to give anything away, but, like, Sloane [Ron Rifkin] being your father-in-law? That’s kind of crazy."
Grunberg plays one of a team of covert agents, including Jennifer Garner's Sydney Bristow, who work under Sloane. Nadia is Sloane's daughter and Sydney's half-sister. Grunberg, a close friend of series creator J.J. Abrams, said that his character takes center stage with Garner's Bristow in an upcoming episode.
"It was very cool," he said. "I got to go with Jen to France and do this whole French character. And then she gets in trouble, and I race out and fly a helicopter. It's like this crazy thing. And I got to actually fly the helicopter with the helicopter pilot hiding [out of camera range]. ... There's two joy sticks on a helicopter, so he's flying it. ... Meanwhile, it's drizzling, we're three feet from a building. ... Afterwards my mom was like, 'Are you out of your f--king mind? Like, what are you doing?'" Alias airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Here are the spoilers she reveals…Remember don’t read spoilers if you don’t want to be spoiled:)!!......

“Anything on Alias? Please, oh, please? Do we find out who heads up the Covenant by the end of the season?
I don't know about the Covenant head, but I can tell you this: When I heard what happens in the finale, it gave me chills, y'all. Do you remember that dream Sydney had while trying to reclaim her memory? The one where she's fighting Lauren, then herself, in a room curtained with plastic sheeting? Well, that wasn't so much a memory as it was a foreshadowing of what's to come. You also may remember that scene ended with someone getting shot in the back five times and falling down the stairs.

 Hmmm...It seems like the well o' Alias spoilers is dry! Are you sure there aren't any measly little drops left?
What? I give, and I give, and I give...Lauren "becoming" Sydney, the recurrence of the dream sequence with one of them getting shot, Vaughn getting stabbed, Lauren's big secret.”

Abrams eyes Grunberg for MI:3?
Monday, 24th January 2005
J. J. Abrams, who is directing the upcoming third Mission: Impossible film, told SCI FI Wire he's hoping to find a role for his longtime friend and frequent collaborator Greg Grunberg, who has played parts in all three of Abrams' TV series, Felicity, Alias and Lost. "I'm sure there will be a role somewhere for a shameless actor," Abrams said in an interview, with tongue in cheek. "I can't figure out what part it is yet, but I look forward to it."
For his part, Grunberg said he'd love to be part of the production, which will star Tom Cruise and is slated to go before the cameras in August. "I sure hope so," Grunberg, a friend of Abrams' since childhood, said in a separate interview. "I don't know. He keeps mentioning it, and Tom's been really generous and said, 'Yeah, we hope you're in the movie.' So, yeah, we'll see. I mean, it would be great. ... I would love it if it was like I was part of the [IMF] team. But it's not [likely]. ... They have such incredible people in those movies, and just to be a part of the movie in any way would be great. If it doesn't happen, I'm [still] thrilled for J.J."
Grunberg is currently on view in Abrams' Alias as Agent Eric Weiss. He had a small part in Lost as the injured airline pilot who meets an untimely demise in the show's pilot — and who may reappear in a flashback in a later episode, Abrams said. Grunberg also played college student Sean Blumberg in Felicity.

Alias holds its strong ratings
Sunday, 23rd January 2005

After its stellar two-hour fourth season premiere in its new post-Lost timeslot with nearly 16 million viewers (double last season's premiere), the second week of Alias saw a 10%+ dip leaving some worried that it would fall back down to its solid but not great ratings of yesteryear. Fears seem allayed however when this Wednesday's third episode easily won its hour with a 13.2 million, stomping all over "The West Wing" (10.9 million), and Fox's much hyped post-Idol debut of "Point Pleasant" (11.3 million). The catch now is to keep that number steady as next week "American Idol" will air in either half-hour or hour long segments in the same timeslot.

Alias wants Rossellini back
Tuesday, 14th December 2004
Isabella Rossellini told SCI FI Wire that she's been asked to reprise her role as Katya on ABC's spy drama Alias, which kicks off a fourth season in January. "They called me the other day to see if I was available in January, so I hope they'll make me kill someone else soon," Rossellini said in an interview. "I did say that I was available, so hopefully [it will work out]."
Rossellini guest-starred three times last season as Katya, the sister of Irina Derevko (Lena Olin). In her first episode, "Crossings," Katya informed Jack (Victor Garber) that Sydney (Jennifer Garner) was still alive, and offered to do everything in her power to save Sydney, so long as Jack agreed to kill Sloane (Ron Rifkin). Later, Katya tried to kill Sydney and made romantic advances toward Jack.
"My character is pretty mysterious, and we're all very devious," Rossellini said. "So the moment you think you get your character — 'I'm bad at this, but good at that'—uh-uh. The next script arrives, and you're betraying [someone]. We're meaner than the public can even imagine."
Rossellini added that playing so mysterious and devious a character wasn't unusual or difficult, as she's played dark characters before. But she said that perpetrating Katya's brand of violence did not come easily. "I had to take my chopsticks and put them [through] somebody's hands," Rossellini said, referring to a scene in "Crossings." "There were all these special effects, and I wasn't hurting the person, but even just doing it I flinched a little bit. So the director said to me, 'Isabella, you have the accent. If you get the violence, you can be governor. So go. Go for it.' They're a great bunch of people. [Executive producer] J. J. Abrams and Jennifer Garner, they're so great. It's fun to be with them." Alias begins its new season with a two-hour premiere on January 5 and moves to a new timeslot, Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following Abrams' other hit series, Lost.

Melissa may be Supergirl
Sunday, 17th October 2004
Former Home and Away star Melissa George is rumoured to be in the running to play Supergirl in a big budget Hollywood movie.
American websites have named George, who has made a name for herself on US spy series Alias, as the frontrunner for a possible film based on the famous DC Comic.
"Melissa George, who was on ABC's Alias, is someone they're discussing for the lead," the Cinescape website said.
"Whoever signs will be signing a two-picture deal.
"Akiva Goldsman was going to write the film, after writing a favourable treatment, but has decided against it, he'll produce only."
Movie house Warner Bros is finalising the script for Superman Returns, written by Bryan Singer, who directed the X-Men movies.
Casting for that film is yet to begin but the film has been slated for a 2006 release and there has been talk it could be shot in Australia.
Hollywood A-listers including Jude Law, Brendan Fraser and Josh Hartnett are rumoured to be interested in the part of Clark Kent – the character's alter ego.
Given the amount of A-list interest in that film, rumours have begun to fly about his younger cousin Supergirl.
Supergirl was made into a film in 1984 with Helen Slater playing the action hero. Faye Dunaway, Mia Farro and Peter O'Toole were also in the film.
Cinescape said any new Supergirl flick would be unlikely to go into production for a few years.
"They're talking 2006, but since things are only now progressing, I suspect a little later," the movie website said.
George is filming the remake of The Amityville Horror in Chicago and will then move to London for Beattie's Derailed, opposite Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston.
She played Angel Brooks on Home and Away from 1993 to 1996 before heading to the United States.
Her work there has included a guest appearance on sitcom Friends.

JJ Abrams/Lost and Jennifer Garner featured in the March 2005 issue of Starlog

Anonymous writes "This seems to be some rather large LENA OLIN possible return news that no one's noticed yet.
In a very recent Swedish interview that's been transcribed at Lena talks openly for the first time about what happened over the whole Alias thing.
Basically it's good and bad news. She says that she was sure that she wouldn't return after Season 2 of Alias in a full-time capacity. Her agent apparently gave J.J the run around and let him think that Lena could maybe be persuaded back at some point. She says that she's actually fired her agent because of this misunderstanding!
She also says that J.J should have killed Irina instead of leaving the character hanging.
Now the good news...she says that she loved working on the show and at some point could be persuaded to come back for "one or two episodes" in the future."

According to a local newspaper in today’s edition (Sao Paulo - Brazil), Brazilian actress Sonia Braga will be a guest star on Alias. She is likely to play Katya’s (Isabella Rosselini) sister and is negotiation with JJ Abrams and the producers of the show. The news were given by Isabella Rosselini in a recent interview with the Alias cast, in Los Angeles. "

"I've never had specific goals in life. I don't say, 'I'd like my next step to be this', and then write it down and go after it.
Actually, I don't write anything down. I just think things to myself and they actually start to happen. So watch out," she added.

Affleck may propose to Garner on Valentine's Day!:
[World News]: Sydney, Feb 4: Ben Affleck is set to propose to his sexy actress girlfriend Jennifer Garner, if rumours are to be believed.
According to, this was revealed by one of his school friends to US People magazine. She added that the love-struck couple may get engaged as early as Valentines Day.
"It's my understanding that he's going to give her a ring. They are "like high school sweethearts. They're very lovey-dovey," the source was quoted as saying.
Affleck has reportedly splashed out on a five-bedroom, country- style mansion just 3km from Garners' Californian home. (ANI)

Jennifer Garner hates constant pressure to look beautiful!:
[Hollywood News]: London, Feb 02 : Most Hollywood actresses might be obsessed about their looks, but Jennifer Garner is just fed-up with the constant pressure to look beautiful.
Though Garner agrees that looks are as important as acting skills in Hollywood, at the same time she finds it really hard to adjust with the industry's obsession with image.
"Being on a weekly show like 'Alias', where I play a butt-kicking spy and wear all sorts of figure-hugging outfits, I've felt constant pressure to look good. And I'll admit, sometimes it's really gotten to me," Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine quoted Garner as saying.
The actress, who had to be sewn into a skin-tight leather suit in new film 'Elektra', said that she is sometimes so obsessed with getting her image right that she tries on dozens of dresses before appearing in public. (ANI)

Ex-beau says Jennifer Garner disliked 'Elektra':
[Hollywood News]: Los Angeles, Jan 28 : Hollywood actor Michael Vartan revealed that "Daredevil" star Jennifer Garner believes her latest film "Elektra" is "awful" but she had to do it because it was in her contract.
Vartan, who briefly dated his "Alias" co-star in 2003 and still maintains a friendship with Garner, said the actress told him the "Daredevil" spin-off was not her proudest piece of work, quoted US Weekly as saying.
"I heard ('Elektra') was awful. (Jennifer) called me and told me it was awful. She had to do it because of 'Daredevil'. It was in her contract," Vartan was quoted as saying.
Vartan, who dated Garner for a month and a half, said that he does not mind seeing pictures of his ex-girlfriend with her current beau, Ben Affleck, even though he still loves Garner "to death".
"Why would it be weird? I don't know Ben. I don't know how happy they are," he said.

No nightlife for Jennifer Garner
Career-obsessed Elektra star Jennifer Garner deliberately avoids drinking too much alcohol, fearing its longterm effects will play havoc with her professional life.
The sexy 32-year-old actress has no time for hangovers, choosing instead to get up at four every morning to complete a vigorous work-out routine to keep her body in prime condition.
She admits, "There's no night-life to speak of for me. It's not very sexy, really, but it's all about work.
"It's like I'm in med-school or something, I'm just ploughing through."


Alias Season Four Wins By a Nose: Jennifer Garner revealed that the fourth season of Alias will take Syndey Bristow into Nicole Kidman/The Hours territory. “My makeup artist, Deborah LaMia Denaver, gave me a fake nose and we haven’t done a lot of prosthetics work on me before, so that was really neat. I showed a picture to my mom and she said, ‘Is this you?’ And I said yeah. And she said, ‘I know it’s you, but you look funny. What is it?’ And you can’t tell what it is. It’s so subtle. But that was fun.”
Season Four's Wardrobe: Alias always puts Jennifer Garner in crazy, sexy costumes and season four will have its share. Garner mentioned outfits for a bad catholic schoolgirl, a ski bunny and the requisite lingerie. “I think Laura Goldsmith, who’s our wardrobe designer is just incredible,” Garner praised. “I love everything that woman does.”
Lauren Reed is Dead: Ever since the third season finale of Alias, I have been convinced that Lauren Reed (Melissa George) is still out there. We never saw her body, and she only got shot in the chest. Jennifer Garner set me straight. “I’m pretty sure she’s dead,” she said. Nothing confirmed or denied, but “I have advanced information that I can’t disclose at this time.”
Jennifer Garner Praises “You guys have a great website. It’s really, really nice. When they told me that I had an interview with you, I said, ‘Well, I will get it done today so we have plenty of time’ so I squeezed it in.”
Sister Bristow: Jennifer Garner’s favorite part of Alias Season Four is working with Mia Maestro as Sydney Bristow’s half sister, Nadia. “I love for Sydney that she has a sister first of all,” Garner said. “I have two sisters. I’m really, really close to them. They’re the central relationships in my life and so I love for Sydney that she has that because it gives her a comrade, a partner, somebody to laugh with, somebody to be goofy with which then means that when there’s tension, it’s that much more playable and fun to do.”
Alias creator J.J. Abrams has a good track record so far with pairing Garner up with female costars. “J.J. has just done me right with the women he’s brought on the show,” she continued. “I loved Lena and then I loved Melissa and now I have Mia and each one brings something different to the year. Melissa and I still talk all the time and Lena I still adore and Mia, I just feel like, ‘Well, of course he would plop this fantastic girl on my lap.’ It’s just so much fun. We just have such a great time.”

News 9/27/04

Goran Visnjic (USA Network movie special "Spartacus") is in talks to star as the male lead opposite Jennifer Garner in Elektra for helmer Rob Bowman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Daredevil spinoff finds Garner reprising her role as Elektra Natchios. In this film, she plays a beautiful and deadly assassin who was trained by the Hand, a clan of mystical ninjas. When she turns her back on them, they want her dead. Elektra is assigned to kill Visnjic's character by the Hand over something his grandfather did; however, she ends up falling for him. Terence Stamp rounds out the cast.
Elektra is due to start shooting in early May in Vancouver.
"David Anders will appear in the recurring role of a "toxicology expert" in the fifth season of CSI, according to E! Online's television gossip columnist, Kristin Veitch. The actor is reportedly scheduled to film his first episode this week.
Veitch said there is currently no firm commitment on how many CSI episodes Anders will appear in. "No number yet--they're seeing how things work out," she said. "But based on his original 'one episode' commitment on Alias in the first season, something tells me we'll be seeing plenty of David on CSI."
This is from where they also have David listed as appearing in the 4th episode of this season, and possibly becoming a recurring character on the show."

"Alias's Lauren Not Dead Yet?
Alias's devious Lauren, Melissa George, tells IGNFF about her hopes of character resurrection.
September 24, 2004 - Melissa George's character on Alias last season, Lauren Reed, took the show by storm and quickly found a place in fans' hearts. That sexy black widow we all loved to hate. IGNFF spoke with George from the set of her latest film, a remake of The Amityville Horror from the producers of last year's highly successful Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake.
George says that she loved working on Alias and that the show even has some pretty famous fans. "Tom Cruise said, 'I looked at episode 13 of the third season. Man, you're character is...' And I'm like, 'You watch Alias? You don't have
anything better to do, like M:I-4 or M:I-3? I was talking to Tom for a while and he loves Alias. It gave me confidence."
So, before Lauren's bullet-riddled body had a chance to cool in last year's finale, fans had already started speculating on her potential resurrection. "You want to hear my theory, like what should happen? She gets shot a lot in the season finale. She wasn't shot in the heart [or the head]... We were filming, and Jennifer Garner and I were doing the fight at seven in the morning and the guys are putting squibs in my coat and I'm like, 'Where are you putting that? Which area of the body are you putting that?' I kept making sure..."
They brought back [Sydney's roommate], so anything is fair game, right? "But I don't want to come back like that. If I'm coming back, I'm coming back or not at all. All the way! What I think is, in the CIA, they wear vests and they put blood on them, so when an opponent hits them, blood comes out and makes the person think that they just killed them. Because if you get a bullet through a vest, and no blood comes out, and the person might go and shoot you somewhere else. I'm like, 'You know what? She had a vest on.'"
Alias creator J.J. Abrams better act quick if he wants to bring her back. George says her plate is already starting to fill up. "Now I got this film and I just got Derailed, the Miramax film, which I'm so excited about. Clive Owen, Jennifer Aniston and myself. I had a good week in Hollywood, as they say. Next week might be different... I'm playing Clive's wife. It's a very complicated story. All these characters are doing something that they shouldn't be doing. It's just like a story about this daughter that's got this kidney problem and, I can't tell any more. It's a thriller..."
Still, George says that she certainly wouldn't hesitate to return to the Alias role. "Lauren Reed is the rockingest, coolest assassin around. I love when she just shoots and she doesn't blink. She's really lazy with it and then she just, not even rushing, just really slowly, like puts it into the case. Like, there's no hurry."
At first, George was brought onto the show in a much smaller capacity. Abrams has said that they only made the decision to turn her into a villain later on. "We had a fair idea. It was really amazing, because I was only supposed to be there for a few episodes, and it ended up being a whole season and the cover of the DVD and things like that. Jennifer Garner, to work with her, she's so inspiring. Jus the way she handled such work and the way she's just lovely with everybody, from the lowest person to the highest person. She's just wonderful. And smacking each other out in the last scene. We had stunt doubles and we were like, 'No, no, no. We're doing it ourselves.' I've got, like, dents in my shins and she threw a chair into my back so hard. I'm like, 'What?' So I just threw her into a table, [and] it fell into a million pieces. She's so good at it."
Alias picks back up in January. In the meantime, check back with IGN next week for the full interview with George and the story of our Amityville Horror set visit."

TV Guide’s Ask Matt Sounds off on Alias….
“Absence may make the heart grow fonder, especially if it helps make the shows better. When it was announced last month that next season's premieres of ABC's Alias and Fox's 24 were being delayed until January 2005, fans experienced an initial panic. They're trying to kill my favorite show, they e-mailed in fear. To me, the exact opposite is true. Considering all the griping I heard about the frequent pre-emptions and uneven quality of both shows this season, a guarantee of continuity — few breaks and no repeats — sounds like a good idea. And if the hiatus allows each show's producers to spend extra time plotting a more coherent and satisfying season, I think we'll all be happier campers.”

Probably No Alias repeats….because of low ratings?!!!
TVGuide online has a special report on repeats for dramas with complicated plots, such as Alias. Here’s a tidbit:
“But many shows with ongoing plotlines or complicated mythologies that require viewers to be on board most weeks — such as Alias, 24, The West Wing and NYPD Blue — won't see their episodes get a second run next season. WB isn't planning to repeat many episodes of Everwood or One Tree Hill or its new series The Mountain and Jack & Bobby.”

Michael Vartan is feature in the Question and Answer of the May 31, 2004 issue. Run to newsstands and pick it up now. For those of you who don’t want to do that, you can read the interview below, courtesy of
SI: For a huge hockey fan like you, how big a thrill was it to hang around the Cup?
Vartan: I've worked with some of the hottest women in Hollywood, and it's by far the most nervous I've been on camera. the moment I saw the Cup I got the chills. The first 10 takes I flubbed every line.
SI: You only moved to the US at age 18. How does a guy from Fleury, France, become a Mets fan?
Vartan: I had Mets pajamas as a kid.
SI: You're filming "Monster-in-Law" with Jennifer Lopez, a Yankees fan, and Jane Fonda, who was married to the owner of the Braves. Have you outlawed baseball talk on the set?
Vartan: The first thing I told Jane was, "I was a huge fan of yours until I saw you sitting in the stands of Turner Field doing the tomahawk chop."
SI: You play pickup hockey several times a week. Do you wear a mask so that pretty face of yours doesn't get smacked?
Vartan: Oh, yeah. Believe me, I'd welcome a couple of pucks and high sticks to the face, but I gotta protect the investment.
SI: In filming the NHL playoff spots, did you get to drink out of the Cup?
Vartan: I didn't, but I have a new puppy and I tried to get her to sit in the top of the Cup for a picture. She wouldn't get near it. She knew unless you've won it, you can't touch it.
SI: You've said you would trade everything to be a pro athlete. Do you expect us to believe you'd trade a role on a hit show and dating one of the world's most beautiful women [Alias costar Jennifer Garner] just to lead Tie Domi's life?
Vartan: The last part is tough. I would not trade dating Jennifer for anything, but if I were Tie Domi, maybe I could still date her. (Laughs.) Of course I'm over the hill now. I throw a baseball for 15 minutes and the next day I can't move my arm. I sort of realize it's over.

Eonline's Kristin reports on the next season of Alias directly from the source of ABC TV!
What? No new Alias until January? How will I live? Why the insanity?
I hear you cluckin', big chicken. Here's another snippet from my convo with Steve McPherson, the new head of ABC
KV: "A big cliffhanger and no new episodes until January--why? Are you ready for the scores of rabid Alias fans who are going to freak out?"
SM: "I think the cliffhanger bit is a bit overblown. I mean, there is going to be a cliffhanger, but we're not actually selling a giant cliffhanger at Alias this year, so I don't think they will. I think we're actually wrapping up a bunch of things because, as I say, we want to start some new stories and really get a new energy in it. So, I think people are going to be excited. I mean there's been a history of shows being off the air for a while and coming back and naturally being stronger. For us being able to give those devoted Alias fans consecutive episodes I think is more important, and I think both JJ and Jennifer are excited about this new schedule."
By the way, I've heard this sked change is why we didn't see a big, crazy cliffhanger, like those of yesterseason. JJ, being the swell guy that he is, decided it was best not to torture us unnecessarily.

Significant Others on DVD....
Jennifer Garner's short lived series Significant Others will be released on DVD on August 3rd, 2004. reports:
"The 1998 Fox Network series Significant Others - not to be confused with the 2-month-old Bravo improv "relationships" show of the same name - is coming to DVD late this summer, courtesy of Columbia TriStar.
Significant Others was made by the same producers as Party of Five was, a fact that is played up on the box. The show took over PoF's timeslot when the veteran show went on hiatus that year, but Fox Network quickly cancelled the new hour-long drama due to poor ratings. And we mean quickly - only 3 episodes ever aired, out of only 6 that were shot.
Stars of Significant Others were Scott Bairstow, Eion Bailey, Michael Weatherly, Jennifer Garner, and Elizabeth Mitchell. After the cast, Bairstow of course was pulled into the cast of Party of Five (when it returned from hiatus) as the boyfriend of Neve Campbell's character, Julia. But it was Jennifer Garner who went the farthest: a year later found Garner in the PoF spin-off The Time Of Your Life, co-starring behind Jennifer Love Hewitt. Two years later she was headlining her own series, Alias. But the cover of Significant Others - The Series doesn't play that up, of course: it promotes Garner and her involvement in another Columbia TriStar property: the new feature film 13 Going On 30...a tie-in that is surely the main motivation for this studio to bring out the short-lived show.
Significant Others will arrive on August 3rd. It comes in a 2-DVD set that has a $24.96 list price for 274 minutes running time.
The only extras are bonus trailers. Full Screen video is what you should expect on this, along with English Dolby Surround. The release is closed-captioned for the hearing impaired.
It's great that fans of the short-run show get a chance to get all of it on DVD, including the unaired episodes. It will also be perfect for fans of Garner or other cast members, who want to take a look at this chapter in their careers. Whatever the reason for its release, we're glad that Columbia remembered this forgotten gem in their vault."

Matt Roush reports on the Alias cutback...
."And finally, quick reaction to the biggest surprise news yet of this week's fall-season upfront announcements: the delay until next January of new episodes of ABC cult fave Alias. Yes, it's unsettling, and a shortened episode order from 22 to 20 is also troublesome. But considering all the angry mail I've received this season from fans who hate it when the show's momentum is stalled by frequent pre-emptions or repeat broadcasts, it may be a plus for the show to air in a constant pattern without disruptions (not counting the big-ticket events like the Oscars). Given the fuss ABC's new entertainment president Steve McPherson, who previously ran the studio that produces Alias — made over Jennifer Garner and Alias at the upfront event, it's unlikely the network is trying (as some frantic e-mailers allege) to kill the show. ABC needs Alias more than ever, for its buzz if not for its ratings, and a delayed launch may serve to build anticipation for the fourth season. Giving the producers more time to prepare may also spare us some of the disappointments and confusions we've experienced with this hit-or-miss third season. I'm still cautiously optimistic about Alias. But if it does turn out to be the beginning of the end, I hope ABC gives the show and its fans plenty of warning."
Thanks Matt!

TV Gal from on Alias
"ABC deserves 30 lashes with a wet noodle for the way they've programmed "Alias" (Sunday, ABC, 9 p.m.) this season. To make fans wait three weeks for the season finale is ridiculous and a sure-fire way to confuse and alienate even the most devout viewers. Sure we don't need to track and fully understand the Rambaldi prophecy, but sometimes even I can't remember what happened on the last new episode. That's probably why I hold the minority opinion that it's actually not a bad thing that ABC is holding the fourth season premiere of "Alias" until next January. Once the show returns, it will air uninterrupted sans repeats. That's the kind of momentum the show needs. Plus, I'll admit it definitely softens the blow that "Desperate Housewives" is the show bumping Sydney. "Desperate Housewives" is the series I'm most looking forward to next season (see, who says I can't be nice to ABC?) It's like they said, "La Femme de who would you like to see in a television series?" and then made it so. "Desperate Housewives" stars my faves Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, James Denton, Sheryl Lee and Eva Longoria. It's executive produced by Charles Pratt Jr. (one of the writers of "Melrose Place"). Seriously, how can we not love this show? By the way, poor Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer on "Twin Peaks") once again plays a dead person."

Moving Alias out of it's timeslot?!?!
USA Today report on the talks of moving Alias out of it's timeslot:
"There also is talk of moving cult fave Alias off its Sunday perch or holding it back until early next year to make room for other dramas on tap:
•Lost, from Alias producer J.J. Abrams, about a Survivor-style group marooned on an island.
•Blind Justice, with Ron Eldard (ER) as a cop blinded in the line of duty, from NYPD Blue producer Steven Bochco. Come spring, Justice is expected to replace Blue, entering its final season, in the Tuesday 10 p.m. ET/PT slot.
•Desperate Housewives, about sex and lies of suburban women, starring Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher.
•Life As We Know It, a coming-of-age show about three sex-starved teens in Seattle.
•Eyes, a private-eye series that will probably surface early next year, starring Tim Daly (Wings).
•Gray's Anatomy, about female surgical residents."

Ask Matt…. TV guide critic Matt Roush comments on the never ending saga of Rambaldi. See what you think….
“Question: Sorry to bombard you with yet another missive about Alias, but I feel compelled to respond to your sentiment that "the Rambaldi storyline is threatening to turn into the monster that ate Alias." Yes, I can see your point of view. However, Rambaldi has been with Alias since day one and it is the engine that drives Alias's major storylines. So far, the Rambaldi "mythos," if you will, has yet to lose focus and drag the series down as the UFO mythos did for X-Files. The X-Files didn't seem to know what its own secret was, or how and when it was going to get there. I don't get that sense from Alias/Rambaldi — I sense a plan. If anything, Rambaldi has renewed focus in this season, and I for one am very thankful for it because up until the Rambaldi "focus," if you will, the series seemed to have become very unfocused, struggling in self-imposed story traps of unsolvable blank walls of amnesia, static relationships (Sydney/Vaughn mixed signals) and the inconsistently drawn (and still unsatisfying) "character" of Lauren. I feel that much of this was "vamping" as the production team unsuccessfully struggled to acquire Lena Olin's services (perhaps she upset "the plan"), but understanding that didn't prevent those episodes from, over a period of time, generating a certain sense of frustration (although I still counted the series as my must-see, I have to admit that it lost a little something). At last the series is really moving again, and I'm enjoying Alias as much as I ever have. It would be fine with me if they resolved the Rambaldi puzzle right away if they found something equally fascinating to replace it, but I'm perfectly happy to have Rambaldi with us from first episode until last, as long as they have a plan. — Utah
Matt: I wish I were as confident in Alias's master plan as you. (More than a few e-mailers have made reference to a recent New York Times story about the show's creative process, which made it pretty clear that even the writers acknowledge a lack of consistency and coherence in what they do.)”

Alias' Sloane To Get Busy
Ron Rifkin, who plays Arvin Sloane on ABC's spy series Alias, told SCI FI Wire that viewers will soon see a more romantic side to his character. "I get to have sex with someone," Rifkin said in an interview at ABC's recent winter press preview in Hollywood. "That's all I'm going to say."
Rifkin, whose character has morphed from evil to ambiguously good in Alias' three-year run, lost his beloved wife last season. Rifkin added that Sloane may have more to do with the nefarious Sark, played by David Anders. "His character gets to have sex also," Rifkin said playfully. Alias airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

LOS ANGELES ( - In the world of film and television, there are few names bigger than Aaron Spelling, Mel Gibson, John Wells, Joel Silver and J.J. Abrams. All five power players are overseeing drama pilots picked up by various networks in Tuesday's (Jan. 27) latest round of development news.
ABC greenlit the pilot for the now-titled bounty hunter drama "The Catch" from Abrams. The series will be toplined by Abrams' long-time friend Greg Grunberg, who also co-starred in the writer-producer's "Alias" and "Felicity." The show's female co-star, a female bounty hunter, has yet to be cast. Could this, perhaps, be the perfect part for fellow "Alias" and "Felicity" alum Amanda Foreman? Or maybe Abrams could turn to former Pink Ranger and "Felicity" co-star Amy Jo Johnson?
Abrams is also developing the castaway drama "Lost" at ABC.

1/17  Abrams Hints Alias' Future
J.J. Abrams, creator of ABC's SF spy drama Alias, told SCI FI Wire that the constantly evolving show has more twists in store for the second half of the third season, including the reappearance of guest star Quentin Tarantino. "We have some storylines that we're working on that could maybe be too extreme," Abrams said in an interview at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Hollywood. "We're trying to be smart about how we do it. But I believe that when you look back at Alias as a series, you'll see many different iterations of the show. And I think the fun in it for me is, I hope it's never so you'll tune in and you'll know exactly what you're going to get. It always feels like this is a very fluid, unexpected place."
Upcoming episodes will feature a guest appearance by actor-director Tarantino, who reprises his role from the first season's two-part episode "The Box I and II." The series will also introduce Isabella Rossellini as the sister of Lena Olin's character, Irina Derevko. Abrams said that Rossellini's character will share a connection with Victor Garber's Jack Bristow and fill a void left by Olin. Abrams is "hopeful" that Olin will also return to the show one day. "[Rossellini's character] definitely serves a similar purpose," Abrams said. "But the character is entirely different, and the storyline is unique. We couldn't have done this story with Lena. In fact, originally I wanted to have them both in the same episode, but we couldn't get Lena."
The Jan. 11 episode revealed that Lauren Reed (Melissa George) is working for the enemies of her husband, Michael Vaughn (Michael Vartan), and his former love interest, Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner). Abrams said that it was his plan all along to make the character evil, and that the twist was not a reaction to the widespread animosity toward her from the fans. "We knew this was going to happen," he said. "She went into this year hated, and she's still hated as the one who's getting in between [Sydney and Vaughn]. But we tried as much as possible to draw out her storyline so that you believed, 'Oh, I guess I'm supposed to like her.' So when you finally learned that she was evil, it was satisfying." Alias airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Jennifer Garner, star of ABC's Alias, told TV Guide that she doesn't have time to read the tabloid gossip about her personal life, including her recent breakup with husband Scott Foley and hookup with Alias co-star Michael Vartan. "Luckily for me, most of the time, I'm here [on the Alias set]," she told the magazine. "It's very easy to live my life here, because this crew has been with me for three years. They really look after me emotionally, as well as taking care of my day-to-day physical needs."
Garner added, "The main thing that starts with [series creator] J.J. [Abrams] and works its way down is a familial atmosphere. It was that way on [Abrams' previous series] Felicity as well. It's why people want to work with him again and again, and it's why he uses actors again and again, because he must believe in this kind of family setting."
Garner added that she's getting used to the glare of publicity. "As far as the photographers at my house, they've chilled out," she said. "Of course, I don't like it. But I wasn't ignorant [of the consequences] when I took the role. And the good so outweighs the bad. What are you going to do?" Alias airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

01/19 - "Kill Bill" co-star Vivica Fox and her fast-talking director Quentin Tarantino will guest star on ABC's "Alias," two of a slew of high profile cameos on ABC shows planned for the next two sweeps periods.
In the Sunday, Feb. 15 episode titled "After Six," Fox will play a rogue security system designer. Astute "Alias" viewers may have been expecting the Tarantino appearance. The "Pulp Fiction" Oscar winner and sometime thespian appeared in the two-part episode "The Box" during the show's first season, playing McKenas Cole, a former SD-6 agent turned freelance rogue. The character's employers and motives remained somewhat ambiguous. During Sunday night's (Jan. 11) episode "Full Disclosure," Jennifer Garner's Sydney Bristow finally uncovered many of the secrets of the missing two years of her life. During the episode, Tarantino made an unaccredited voice cameo that should serve as foreshadowing for his future appearance. Tarantino's appearance in "After Six" is described as relatively small, closer to a cameo. Source: Zap2it

I think Sloane and Barnett have something going on. All I have is a phone conversation between the two of them. Sloane says he'll meet her for dinner at 8. She doesn't think it's a good idea. Sloane: "You shouldn't dine alone. That would be criminal. I hope you'll join me." Now for the Lauren and Sark part... they are at the same Digital Storage facility Syd and Vaughn are. Sark: "You are so controlling." Lauren (stern): "Move it! I'm right behind you." Then a bit later is the part I told you about with Lauren trying to get the Vault Manager to kill Syd and Vaughn. Then comes this (after she kills the Manager)... Lauren charges up the stairs, below her the stairwell door bangs open-Lauren stays tight to the wall, making sure she cannot be seen by Sydney and Vaughn, who she knows are after her. She then bursts through a door into a parking garage... Lauren finds a blue mustang with tinted windows idling nearby-Sark at the wheel. Lauren hops in and the car screeches away.

This is the episode starring “The Office” creator Ricky Gervais and I’m still stuck back in the second season, trying to catch up. Source:
01/26 - Not too much to go on, but the scene is that Vaughn and Sark are on a plane. Vaughn looks down the aisle and sees that the seat next to Sark is still empty. He then calls Syd, who is at the Rotunda. Sydney--still in alias--is on comms. Sydney: Has Ryan's contact arrived? Vaughn: No. And something tells me he's not going to. Sydney: I'll talk to Ryan, see what's going on, and call you back. Syd then goes to a hotel, where Ryan is being held. Sydney: Your partner was supposed to make contact 30 minutes ago. Where is he? Ryan: Mr. Sark needs to be more patient. Sydney: The approach was to be made twenty minutes after take-off. They've been in the air almost an hour. Call your partner and tell him the deal is off. Ryan: I'm afraid that won't be possible. Maybe it's his tone---maybe the smug expression--but Sydney knows they are fucked. On her realization---she calls Vaughn and tells him there is no meeting.

01/22 - One or a few of the characters will be on a plane where there is a French flight attendant, a French pilot, a nosey Italian woman who's slightly overweight.

From scifiwire: Will Back On Alias
Bradley Cooper, whose character, Will, apparently died at the end of this season's Alias, will return in the upcoming third season on ABC, E! Online columnist Watch With Kristin reported. Series creator J.J. Abrams was able to save Will from extinction, despite network wishes to the contrary, the site reported.  But Merrin Dungey—whose character, Francie, was killed and replaced with an evil double who wound up shot at the end of the season—is not expected to return, the site reported. A new actor named Archie Kao is reportedly on board for a few episodes this season.

6/05 - After a reported dispute with the network over the casting budget, word is JJ Abrams was able to save Bradley Cooper's Will from extinction.

5/23 - Sydney (Jennifer Garner) awakened from a deep sleep to discover that she had been presumed dead for the last two years. Where the heck was she? But more importantly, did Vaughn (Michael Vartan) really go off and get hitched to someone else — as his shiny new wedding band seemed to suggest? "Yes, he did," confirms exec producer J.J. Abrams, who adds that Syd's mission to retrace those missing years will "definitely be a component" of Season Three. We can't wait.
