Alcatraz: New Poster and Promo Photos Released

Alcatraz is one of the most hotly anticipated new shows of the midseason. After all, it is the new show from J.J. Abrams, the brain behind LOST, Fringe, Alias, and Felicity. The series, which stars Sarah Jones (Big Love) and Jorge Garcia (LOST), centers on the mysterious disappearance of everyone from Alcatraz Prison decades ago... And their sudden, mysterious reappearances in the present. It's a creepy, fun show, with a tone reminiscent of Fringe's first season.

A new poster for the series has been released, featuring an appropriately fog-shrouded Alcatraz and the show's title in massive lettering.

Cast promotional photos have also been released, featuring quite a few familiar faces. In addition to Garcia, who played the lovable Hurley Reyes on LOST, the show stars Robert Forster (Arthur Petrelli from Heroes) and Santiago Cabrera, who is nearly unrecognizable without his long hair from his role as painter Isaac Mendez on Heroes. Sam Neill's also a major part of the cast, his first television role since last year's failed ABC series Happy Town. Then there's Jason Butler Harner, an actor probably most known by Alcatraz's target audience as the first ever Fringe villain, Richard Steig. Read More...
