'12 Monkeys': The specific way Bruce Willis impacted the Syfy series

Taking on a role originated by someone the caliber of Bruce Willis is a daunting task. It becomes even more difficult when the character in question is from a movie as beloved as "12 Monkeys,"but that's exactly what Aaron Stanford is doing for Syfy's adaptation of the film. His goal is to make the character of James Cole his own, though that doesn't mean there's nothing to take from the movie."We want it to be its own thing, but still make occasional nods and references to the movie," Stanford tellsZap2it.In fact, he watched the movie again after landing the role. "Some peopledon't like to do that because they're concerned about replicating a performance," he says. "I wasn't worried about that because I'm such a different type than Bruce Willis."There was one particular aspect of Willis' portrayal he wanted to bring to the show, he realized: "The idea of coming from his future world and being... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/b7WhJeaNW8Y/12_monkeys_bruce_willis-syfy_series_aaron_stanford-2015-01

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of January 12, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 10:00pm on FXX Why: Because a comedy this mean and weird shouldn't have lasted as long as it has (this will be its tenth season), in a world where TV is supposedly all about relatability. Then again, most people are awful, so maybe this show is TOTALLY relatable! Also, it takes place in Philadelphia, which is the greatest city in America. Prepare to talk about:  Which one of the gang you are (if you don't know, just take my answer: I'm a noxious version of Dennis without the venality!); how some of their ideas make a sense when you sit down and really think about 'em ; how it's weird that Rhea Perlman has never been on the show (but also make sure to remark that she's great on The Mindy Project ).   12 Monkeys (Series Premiere) Friday at 9:00pm on SyFy Why: Because the movie was terrific (and hey, it ALSO took place in Philadelphia), even if came out almost 20 years ago, and SyFy  really  wants to make this its prestige piece. OK, it's lacking in Brad Pitt, but it makes up for it in concept (time travel to stop a plague before it happens).  Prepare to talk about: If it lives up to its silver screen namesake; whether you'd want to survive a worldwide epidemic that basically wipes out humanity (sure, you'd be alive, but there'd be, like, zero amenities); how Brad Pitt's character (Goines) is a LADY in this new version. Yes, a LADY!     Saturday Night Live               (Midseason Premiere) Saturday at 11:30pm on NBC Why:  Because Kevin Hart is hosting, and he's one of the biggest stars in the world (plus—stop me if you're sensing a pattern—he's from Philadelphia); meanwhile, Sia is the musical guest and she's weird as hell! Should be fun! Prepare to talk about:  Your favorite sketch (if you don't watch it, just say "the one with Kate McKinnon... you know,  that  one," because she is the best and no one will argue); how weird Sia is and how she either did or did not sing "Chandelier" which is a legit terrible song; how Kevin Hart is consistently funnier than  SNL .     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com. She used to live in Philadelphia. You can follow her musings on  Twitter .
