We have been seeing some familiar faces lately on a variety of TV shows and movies. It has inspired me to track down our former "Alias" actors and get a peak at some of their new and upcoming projects.
Victor Garber (Jack Bristow)
Victor is currently working on a pilot titled “Eli Stone,” based on a lawyer (Jonny Lee Miller, ex of Angelina Jolie) who believes he is a prophet. Sounds Rambaldi-esque.
Michael Vartan (Michal Vaughn)
Where has he been? Not with me unfortunately, but he has been working a TV pilot titled “Perfect Gentlemen” and that he is! The show will also star Dylan McDermott and Nia Long. It will be an inside look at the life of a CEO.
Michael’s movie, Rogue, which he filmed in Australia during the “Alias” hiatus is due out soon as well.
Greg Grunberg (Weiss on Ice)
We can see Greg each week as Matt, the thought-hearing cop on “Heroes.” Aside from that Greg is working on the family film Magic about a special dog.
Kevin Weisman (Marshall Flinkman)
Kevin just wrapped filming Clerks 2 and will be taking part in three other films; Medium Raw, Business Class (also starring SNL’s Horatio Sanz) and High Midnight.
David Anders (Julian Sark)As you might have noticed, David appeared in a bit part on the Grey’s spin-off, “Private Practice” last week.
He will take the lead in movie titled “Eli” in which he wakes on an operating table with only one memory. Oooh, sounds good!
Ron Rifkin (Arvin Sloane)
We can see Ron each Sunday night as Uncle Sal on “Brothers & Sisters” (along side his former “Alias” flame, Dr. Judy Barnett aka Patti Wettig). We can see him next in a thriller titled Pulse, starring Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) and Boone from “Lost” (Ian Somerhalder).
Merrin Dungey (Francie)
I am crossing my fingers that we will see her each week in the new Grey’s spin-off “Private Practice,” along side Taye Diggs and Tim Daly.
Bradley Cooper (Will Tippin)
Well, he's a free man now, so perhaps we will be seeing more of him. Or hopefully I will be seeing more of him. Hehehe!
Bradley has been a busy boy. He has 4 movies in post-production right now! He will star in The Comebacks, Midnight Meat Train (with Brooke Sheilds), Older Than America and Case 39, starring Renee Zellwger. That is a lot of Bradley. Yipee!
Last, but certainly not least- Jennifer Garner (Butt-kicking Sydney Bristow)Aside from catching pics of Jennifer in the park with Baby Vi, her CIA action film, The Kingdom, starring Jamie Foxx and Jason Bateman will be in theaters very soon. YAHOO!! Catch and Release is out on DVD this week too. I need to see that!
Also, Jennifer has just wrapped filming Juno, about a young pregnant woman and an adoptive mother and she will be starring in and producing Be With You, based on a Japanese film.
I know it’s not the same as seeing their faces together around a table at APO, but it will have to do. Just seeing them on TV or in movies keeps “Alias” alive.
