Sci-fi Hotties of '09: The Men - Featured

Here are EW's picks of the dozen guys who brought the most heat to roles in science fiction movies and TV during the past year, from Jensen Ackles to Zachary Quinto. ZACHARY QUINTO Spock in Star Trek As EW critic Owen Gleiberman said when writing about J.J. Abrams' Star Trek: Quinto does a fantastic job of maintaining Spock's calm, no-sweat surface but getting quietly hot and bothered underneath. Or, as EW's Annie Barrett so eloquently put it: I'd like to report that, thanks to Zachary Quinto's relentless Zachary Quinto-ness, I just had my second sexual fantasy about Spock.

PR: Caprica

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CAPRICA SOUNDTRACK TO BE RELEASED BY LA-LA LAND RECORDS Composer Bear McCreary Scores Battlestar Galactica Prequel (June 10, 2009- Burbank, CA) – La-La Land Records will release the soundtrack for Caprica on June 16, 2009. The two-hour pilot movie, released on DVD on April 21st from Universal Home Entertainment, launches the new series Caprica to air on the SCI FI Channel in early 2010. Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, Wrong Turn 2) composed the score for this Battlestar Galactica prequel. McCreary will be appearing in July at The House of Blues in San Diego during Comic Con. La-La Land Records is releasing the Caprica soundtrack through a license agreement with NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group. Bear McCreary is one of the top young composers working in Hollywood. His work on the television series Battlestar Galactica has been described as offering “some of the most innovative music on TV today,” by Variety, and his blog www.bearmccreary.com/blog, which features in-depth inside looks at the process of scoring Battlestar Galactica, was called "one of the best blogs in the business. It's a fascinating look at the process of making music for film and television and the care he takes with aligning the score with the twists and turns of each character's plot lines," by The Hollywood Reporter. Among a handful of select protégés of late film music legend Elmer Bernstein, McCreary is a classically trained composer with degrees in Composition and Recording Arts from the prestigious USC Thornton School of Music. His credits include Wrong Turn 2, the two Rest Stop films, the upcoming Capcom video game Dark Void, the series Eureka, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Battlestar Galactica. Set 50 years before the events that unfolded in Battlestar Galactica, Caprica chronicles an astonishing scientific breakthrough taking shape on the planet Caprica. The rapidly evolving spheres of human and mechanical engineering have collided, along with the fates of two families. Joined by tragedy in an explosive instant of terror, two rival clans led by powerful patriarchs, Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) and Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) duel in an era of questionable ethics, corporate machinations and unbridled personal ambition as the final war for humanity looms. "The Caprica score, while echoing the spirit of Galactica, is very much its own entity, like the series itself", says McCreary. "This album is the seed from which the musical universe of Caprica will evolve and grow." Caprica not only introduces new characters and a new spirit to the Battlestar Galactica family, it also welcomes a new director, Jeffrey Reiner. He describes, “Bear sent me very complete demos against picture that worked great, but it wasn't until I sat in the scoring stage at Warner Bros., and heard the maestro conduct his orchestra, that I was blown away." "My approach for Caprica would be the polar opposite [of Galactica],” explains McCreary. “After all, the events of this series take place in an entirely different environment. Caprica City is a familiar society at its most decadent and opulent peak. The audience knows that doomsday looms on the horizon, but the characters themselves do not." There will be musical threads that connect the two series. For example, the track “The Adama Name” ends with an understated reprise of the Adama family theme (“Wander My Friends”) to connect the boy of Caprica to the commander of Galactica. Have no fear … the taiko percussion ensemble returns and can be heard on “Cybernetic Life Form Node.” Caprica is currently available on DVD and will premiere on the SCI FI Channel in early 2010. The Caprica soundtrack will be available in stores or from www.lalalandrecords.com on June 16, 2009. The two-CD Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 soundtrack will be released by La-La Land Records on July 21. For info

Scoop: Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff makes time for '24' - Featured

Suddenly, I find myself counting the minutes until 24 's new season. Perhaps this is why: Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast! Sources confirms that the Battlestar Galactica heroine has been tapped to play the series regular role of Dana Walsh, a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU. Translation: Chloe-Starbuck catfight alert! This fraktastic casting coup hit a road block last week when Sackhoff abruptly took herself out of the running. But late Friday, word surfaced that the BSG badass was once again in the mix. Here's more scoop on Sackhoff's character... She's in a relationship with fellow agent Davis Cole (played by the just-cast Freddie Prinze. Jr.), and she apparently has a skeleton in her closet she's trying desperately to keep hidden. As I previously reported, 24's eighth season -- which premieres Jan. 17, 2010 -- will be set in the Big Apple and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor). In addition to Sackhoff and Prinze, new Day 8 blood includes Forrest Gump's Mykelti Williamson, Kissing Jessica Stein's Jennifer Westfeldt (as a journalist with ties to Kapoor's diplomat), and The Starter Wife's Chris Diamantopoulos (as President Taylor's Chief of Staff). Thoughts on Sackhoff's casting? Is this going to be 24's best day ever? Comment away below! Source

FOX Moves Virtuality to June 26th - Featured

Fans of Battlestar Galactica will want to mark this down: Virtuality - a pilot from BSG creator Ronald D. Moore that will likely never come into fruition as a series - is being aired as a 2 hour movie on June 26th at 8PM on FOX. The series was initially slated to air on July 4th, but has since been moved up a week. Virtuality stars familiar face Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, whom fans of the short-lived New Amsterdam will recognize, as well as Sienna Guillory, James D'Arcy, Joy Bryant and Clea Duvall. FOX's description of the program: "The crew of the Phaeton is approaching the go/no-go point of its epic 10-year journey through outer space. With the fate of Earth in the crew's hands, the pressure is intense. The best bet for helping the crew members maintain their sanity is the cutting-edge virtual-reality technology installed on the ship. It's the perfect stress-reliever until they realize a glitch in the system has unleashed a virus on to the ship. Tensions mount as the crew decides how to contain the virus and complete their mission. Meanwhile, their lives are being taped for a reality show back on Earth." Source

The concerts will celebrate the July 21 release of a special 2-CD set, Battlestar Galactica: Season 4. Battlestar Galactica began as an original SCI FI Channel mini-series in 2003. Billions of human lives were consumed by nuclear fires as the Cylons, intelligent robots created by man, rebelled against their makers. A small, rag-tag fleet of survivors escaped and fled into the outer reaches of the universe in search of the mythical, lost "13th colony" — Earth. The SCI FI series celebrated its finale in March of 2009, having received boundless critical acclaim and awards, including the prestigious Peabody Award as well as special recognition from the United Nations. A few weeks later, the prequel Caprica, set 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, was released on DVD by Universal Home Entertainment.
