'The River': Leslie Hope on playing scared and her character's 'big love'

The things that scare the characters in ABC's new series "The River" come from potentially supernatural sources. The things that scare Leslie Hope, who stars on the show, were all around her during filming in Hawaii."In my case, a lot of it is grounded in reality, because I'm really afraid of the water and I'm really afraid of bugs," Hope tells Zap2it. "But [on camera], you kind of have to take a leap of faith as an actor. ..."You have to go big or go home. A few times, I can tell you, I was out there running for my life or sobbing uncontrollably, doing what I think of as big acting and thinking, 'Please, God, don't let me be a jerk for doing this. Please let me be doing the same show as everybody else.' It was a definite leap of faith to do it that way, but for me I didn't really know... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/the-river-leslie-hope-on-playing-scared-and-her-characters-big-love.html

'The River': It's not 'Lost' in the Amazon

Since "Lost" disappeared from television, fans have been craving a really good mystery. ABC is about to fill that void for us with "The River." In the show, a group of people search for a missing TV researcher in the Amazon jungle. (The show is filmed in Hawaii, on the one island that doesn't have an actual river: Oahu). That said, it's not "Lost" in the Amazon. Especially in one very crucial way.At the TV critics' winter press tour, executive producer Michael Green explained that each episode is a self-contained horror/adventure story. It seems that ABC learned its lesson from "Lost." Of course it was an incredibly popular show, but the people who dropped off often did it because they missed a week and it was too complicated to catch up. Green said that though there is an overarching storyline, you could "ignore" it. Sure, the idea is that the group is searching for Dr.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/the-river-its-not-lost-in-the-amazon.html

'The River' video clips: Ready for another sub-tropical sweaty sci-fi adventure?

In the above clip from "The River," a rag-tag crew of good looking survival types in sweaty J Crew gear bust into a subterranean hatch where someone has obviously been living. Why does this sound familiar? Oh, right -- "Lost." That seems to be where the similarities end, though, between ABC's now-ended cult classic and The Oren Peli-helmed (and Stephen Spielberg-produced) "The River." In the River, Peli (the writer/director of "Paranormal Activity") takes us to the Amazon, where an expedition searching for a missing "TV explorer" runs into some unexpected trouble.Unexpected, but promising for those of us into cheap thrills, mysteries and sweaty hot people in J. Crew gear. We'll have to wait a few months before its debut, though -- it's slated as a midseason opener.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/the-river-video-clips-ready-for-another-sub-tropical-sweaty-sci-fi-adventure.html
