'Monday Mornings': Bits 'n' Bobs of News Updates!
Soooo, we've got some odds 'n' ends news about Monday Mornings that has surfaced over the past few weeks, mostly via Twitter. We've been trying to save up for a big post, but... well, it's a decent-sized post. Still, some of it's potentially exciting! :)

— Let's do the exciting part first: Kerry tweeted this out yesterday, causing a fair amount of on-the-spot speculation to begin:



Both asta77 and myself instantly wondered if it might be Ioan Gruffudd - which I will grant you is mainly wishful thinking on our parts. ;) BUT... given that she said "JB fans" and not "BSG fans" we wondered if that would indicate it was someone Jamie worked with on a non-BSG project? Of course, it certainly could be another BSG alum... that's a big cast and many of them are LA based now. The other out-of-the-box former co-star that would probably make me over the moon giddy would be Bradley Walsh... but I'd count that as seriously unlikely not only because he's London-based but going off of Emilia di Girolamo's recent tweets, LOUK is about to resume production again. And I have another guess too, but since it is a book spoiler I will leave it for the spoiler section I'm adding at the end of the post!

(Also worth nothing: dramaturgca asked Kerry if it might be her own self, to which she replied "Haha I said exciting not frightening! ;-) " Oh, Kerry... dear woman, don't you dare sell yourself short. It would be hugely exciting! So there! ;) )

— In other news, actor/director Mario Van Peebles is directing at least one episode, as evidenced by the tweet that MM's make-up artist Jori Jenae posted yesterday.

— Jori also recently mentioned a big cast photo shoot that took place. (No behind the scenes photo evidence of that, sadly, so we'll keep hanging tight till it turns up!) And she tweeted today that of the season order, they have three episodes left to shoot.

— Also, it was mentioned on our Twitter a while back but I don't think we posted it here yet: veteran actor Hal Holbrook is guest starring on the show. (Set pics did get tweeted of this, including Sarayu Rao and Ewan Chung. Well he is pretty much a legend. ;) )

— IMDb appears to have some episode titles posted: There are listings for "Deus Ex Machina" and "Forks Over Knives," although I wouldn't trust the episode order or dates one iota at this point. (It's IMDb, of course, so it's never entirely trustworthy this far out from when a show hits - but for example, one of them is listed as airing two days *before* the pilot. HUH?)

Alright, now for the potential SPOILERS part of our update. I will point out that this stuff is mostly spoilery only if you did not read the book! But I don't recall some of our regulars participating in the book discussions, and if anyone stops by via social media I'm assuming you guys won't want to be spoiled so just in case....



(do de do de do, obligatory spoiler space)

— Here is a short interview segment that I found on Hulu with actress Tara Summers, who is of course playing a recurring arc on Monday Mornings this first season. Pay close attention to what she says about her character...

EDIT: Damn, the video embed doesn't seem to be working (typical Hulu), so CLICK HERE to go straight to Hulu.com to watch the clip there.

SPOILERS: Okay, so... if you read the book, you know who her character Allison McDaniel is. And when she says "one of the surgeons" you know EXACTLY who she is talking about. (Alright, perhaps there is a chance they would hook her up with someone else, but that seems unlikely.) There was some discussion when we reached this point of the book (which is near the end BTW) about if the show would go down this route with the characters; at the time, I recall that we thought it wouldn't be out of the question for them to make something rather interesting out of it provided that it's fleshed out better than it is in the book, where it reads as a bit out of left field and really teetering on unrealistic. (It's hard for me to expand on why unless I really get into spoilers... we can do so in the comments for anyone who really wants to talk about it! I'm game.) Anyway, yeah... lots to speculate about.

—  My guess as to who the mystery guest star might be that is possibly a bit spoiler-ish: Anastasia Griffith. And the reason why it's spoilery is also total speculation on my part, but... if you read the book, you may remember that there is a bit where Ty travels to Arizona to visit his sister. How amazing would it be if they cast Jamie's sister as his sister?!?!! Yeah... that would be pretty exciting. Now watch that not be it AT ALL. ;)


And that about wraps it up! For now. (I don't imagine we'll have a ton to post until after the new year when the premiere gets quite close, but we'll see!)

on the spoilery part: It's good to know that I wasn't the only one who had that idea about the guest star :) That would be very interesting and nice. I thought that in my case the idea might have been induced by the fact that I read the book later than the rest of you and also that I sort of really enjoyed season 1 of her new show.

I have to admit that I didn't thought about Ioan. And I really can't say why since he is a very logical option taking into account that Kerry said JB fans not BSG fans - as you pointed out.

Yeah, who knows, that might be us being too logical and reading too deeply between the lines - tweets are so short, that might not be fully advised, but I'm sticking by that guess! ;)

Glad to see you updating and can't wait for the series premiere! I could use a good shot in the arm of Jamie Bamber. Yous guys are awesome. :-)

Not just your parts! My parts too! The very thought....*faints*

Thanks for the update, I've missed a lot of what's going on on twitter recently so it's great to have a round up.

(I don't imagine we'll have a ton to post until after the new year when the premiere gets quite close, but we'll see!)
But...but...the golf! What about the Seve Legends Tournament that Jamie and IG are supposed to be playing in at the end of the month?! Actually I've just had a look at the website and I see that IG is listed as playing but Jamie isn't :( Never mind, I'll live in hope of that Hornblower reunion one day! XD

ROTFL. All the parts. All the parts would be aflame!

Oh, I meant updates on the Monday Mornings front; never know if something else might show up in the meantime. (Gee, that would suck if Jamie had to drop out of the tournament. :( Hope that was just an oversight.)

Also, who knows when we'll get a John Doe update, that's a big fat question mark still.

It would be a veritable conflagration I tell ya! XD

Gee, that would suck if Jamie had to drop out of the tournament. :( Hope that was just an oversight.)
I'm hoping that they've only listed a selection of the celebrity captains, and that Jamie wil still be playing :}

Thanks for the update! I'm so hoping for Ioan. I wonder if the show does well they might let Jamie direct one day.

Re your spoilery guess: I think she's in Nepal atm. So if they're shooting it right now, it can't be her.
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: November 15th, 2012 05:34 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Yeah, noticed that... it would definitely depend on which episode we're talking about. If it's the season finale and they don't get to that for a few weeks yet...

I wonder if the show does well they might let Jamie direct one day.

Well, he did talk about wanting to direct when we interviewed him and expressed the possibility that maybe it might happen on MM. Fingers crossed if they get a second season! (So far, TNT seem to be giving *everything* a second season, too...)

Thanks for the update. I'm still holding out hope it's Bradley, he could have flown out after the read through for LOUK to film his bit.
If anyone is on twitter, feel free to add me - Adamazghirl.

The video won't work for me I'm not in the states - will need to wait until it appears on Youtube.

If I find a different link for the interview, will let you know!

Sorry, I didn't know where else to post this, but I was watching Haven Friday night, and there was a commercial for Syfy's 20th anniversary special with a bunch of quick sound bites from various Syfy/ SciFi stars from over the years, and Jamie was among them. I forget the exact date of the special, but it was sometime in early December.

Great! Thanks for the heads up. :) Will see if we can find the preview online and post closer to the date. Did it look like a new interview or something from the BSG era?
