HARRY POTTER: According to Britain's The Sun, Jarvis Cocker is set to write the soundtrack for "Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire". Movie bosses apparently wanted a trendy British musician to score the new film rather than utilising stalwart John Williams. The good news is that Cocker was the top choice by the various cast, including Radcliffe for the job. A film insider says: "He is a very talented musician who is a big fan of movies and knows exactly how they work. You may just think Jarvis is the bloke in specs who fronted Pulp but he is a man with many hidden depths".

IRON MAN: It seems that David Hayter's latest draft of "Iron Man" has won over New Line Cinema and the studio is immediately going out with it to directors who can get the film up and running by early 2005. Sources have advised them that this draft of Iron Man is very Tom Clancy-esque in tone and involves the conflict between Tony Stark and his father Howard over Stark Industries. The Armored Avenger's origin has been updated from the Vietnam back story used in the comics. Although Tom Cruise and Nicolas Cage had expressed interest in the role, both are very busy on other projects, New Line has several other movie stars in mind.

Paramount Television will begin production of 13 episodes in February in Vancouver in anticipation of a June launch. "4400" became a surprise hit for USA in July, premiering to 7.4 million total viewers, eclipsing previous record holder "The Dead Zone" by 1 million (HR 7/14). The six-hour series, which starred Joel Gretsch and Peter Coyote, chronicled UFO abductees who returned to Earth with mysterious powers.

VAN HELSING: Released on DVD yesterday, VAN HELSING will contain a featurette on how filmmakers brought the movie's signature monsters to life. Doug Griffin, the film's motion-capture supervisor, that he and the technical magicians for the project came up with a few new tricks, such as grafting the real-life head and hair of an actress onto the computer-animated winged body of a vampire bride as she flies over a village set that was photographed in Prague months before. VAN HELSING, starring Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale, is available in regular DVD and a three-disc "ultimate collector's edition".

CAPTAIN KIRK SINGS: AP reports that Star Trek's Captain Kirk, William Shatner, will release a new 11-song CD of music this month. The new album, Has Been, features Shatner's choppy words set to music that he co-wrote and performs with Ben Folds, who produced and arranged the new album. Musicians Joe Jackson, Aimee Mann, Henry Rollins and Brad Paisley also make appearances. The songs vary from pianos to soul, from gospel to cowboy, and Shatner's lyrics explore his fear of aging, the death of a loved one, reconnecting with estranged children and the fickleness of fame.

THE ISLAND: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Djimon Hounsou and Steve Buscemi have joined the cast of THE ISLAND, from DreamWorks and director Michael Bay. Hounsou (Constantine) will play the head of security for the utopian community where the story takes place. No details were available on the Buscemi role. THE ISLAND stars Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson in a story by Caspian Tredwell-Owen about a "harvested being" (McGregor) who becomes self-aware and tries to escape the utopia where he is being kept. Johansson plays the only person he can trust and the carrier of the sponsor's child. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci also co-wrote the script.

Von Doom FANTASTIC FOUR: 20th Century Fox has released the first look at Julian McMahon in character as Victor Von Doom from the FANTASTIC FOUR movie. Doom is a billionaire industrialist and old college rival of Reed Richards. In addition to funding Richards' trip to space, he also accompanies the future Fantastic Four on the ship. Australian McMahon currently stars in the FX series Nip/Tuck, playing Dr. Christian Troy. His other credits include Profiler and Charmed.

DEAD ASLEEP: Jonathan Liebesman, director of DARKNESS FALLS, will direct DEAD ASLEEP for New Line Cinema. The Hollywood Reporter also indicated that the story was written by Carter Blanchard and centers on a small town that becomes infested with a species of killer bugs that come out at night. They burrow inside their victims' bodies, killing people from the inside.

ALIEN: The UK Teletext reports that British director Paul W. S. Anderson ("Alien vs. Predator", "Resident Evil") is to write the sixth movie in the "Alien" franchise. Anderson, has apparently been asked by Twentieth Century Fox to pen a new script featuring the creatures on their own (ie. no Predators). It is unknown as yet whether that includes the return of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) or not. The deal is simply to pen the script, not to direct as such although that may happen thanks to the success of AVP.

SMALLVILLE: With the passing of Christopher Reeve, SMALLVILLE was left with deciding on how to handle his character, Dr. Swann. Alfred Gough, executive producer of SMALLVILLE told The Post Gazette that they've decided that Swann, like the actor who played him, will pass away. Margot Kidder, who's already filmed two episodes as Bridgette Crosby, Dr. Swann's emissary, will continue as a link between the young Superman (Tom Welling) and Dr. Swann's research about the teen's alien origins, on the show. When Reeve couldn't do the season opener, they bought in Margot Kidder, the actors co-star in the "Superman" feature films. It now seems as if she is going to stick around. "We thought she was a good person to help fill in around Dr. Swann, give him some other people [to work with]," Gough said, "and our plan was to bring Chris back later in the season and have him in a scene with Margot and Tom." Now Kidder's character will carry the Dr. Swann story forward. When asked about the effect Reeve's death would have on the show, Gough said, "It won't have a hugely dramatic effect on our story lines, because, with the introduction of Bridgette Crosby, it still gives you a link to that person," Gough said. "But there is some key information he was going to provide, so now she'll provide it."

Speaking of SMALLVILLE, over at,7353,%7C%7C126,00.html you can catch a trailer of The Flash episode, "Run" set to air on Wednesday.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: This original series from SCI FI, is set to debut this week on United Kingdom's Sky One, and in January in the United States. Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore said in a recent interview, "For those of us who take our sci-fi with a pinch of salt ... there are far more interesting things going on here." "There is great safety in genre and, at a time when the American media stands accused of soft-peddliung news and hard- selling patriotism, 'Battlestar Galactica' is taking some risks. Conceptually, the best science-fiction has always been socially and politically relevant," Moore said. "The original 'Star Trek' was famed for that, as was 'The Twilight Zone.'"

LOST: Variety reports that ABC's LOST has brought on writer-producer Carlton Cuse (Nash Bridges) as an executive producer. Cuse will run the series with Damon Lindelof, who co-created the show with Alias mastermind J.J. Abrams.

JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL: Screen rights to JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL have been acquired by New Line according to Variety. Susanna Clarke's best-selling fantasy novel, is set in 19th-century England and deals with a master practitioner of real magic and his apprentice, who share an uneasy alliance when they channel their powers in the war effort against Napoleon. Clarke, a former cookbook editor at Simon & Schuster, will be a producer on the film, along with Nick Marston. Strange will be produced through Cuba Pictures, a company formed as an offshoot of the British literary agency Curtis Brown.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: It was DreamWorks' SHARK TALE again in the #1 spot at the box office this weekend. While most industry experts were expecting Paramount's TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE to open strong, the puppet movie failed to pull the expected numbers, emerging with $12.3 M. DreamWorks' SHARK TALE locked up the lead spot for the third weekend in a row. Buena Vista's FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS also retained its same spot from last week at number two. The rest of the top 12 fall out in routine fashion. SKY CAPTAIN is at tenth spot and is just about to drop off the list; it will probably exit theaters with around $40 M total for its grosses, well short of the film's estimated $70 M budget. Playing at less than 700 theaters, Focus Features' SHAUN OF THE DEAD is still doing alright while RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE breached the $50 M barrier at fifteenth overall. Here are the estimated box office receipts of the top twelve films from October 15 through to October 17 with their weekend gross and the movie's total domestic gross to date:
1. SHARK TALE $22,100,000 - $119,820,000
2. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS $13,060,000 - $38,662,000
3. TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE $12,300,000 - $12,300,000

STAR WARS: Hollywood is finally awarding George Lucas a lifetime achievement award. The American Film Institute announced Friday they'd bestow him that honor. Lucas will join the ranks of Jack Nicholson, Alfred Hitchcock, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand and Robert DeNiro. Lucas, who's responsible for creating "Star Wars," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "American Graffiti," is getting the 33rd AFI Lifetime Achievement honor just as he wraps the last and sixth part of his "Star Wars" series, scheduled for next summer.

SUPERMAN: With the passing of Christopher Reeve recently, it seems strange talking about a "new" Superman, but rumors have been confirmed that unknown actor Brandon Routh will be donning the cape and tights for the upcoming SUPERMAN film directed by Bryan Singer. Here is a coincidence for you. Brandon ‘B.J.’ Routh stands at 6’ 2” and just days ago celebrated his 25th Birthday on October 9th. Sadly, this is the same day that Christopher Reeve had fell into a coma and later died. Routh was born in Iowa, which is the same state that George Reeves was born, one of the original silver screen Superman stars.

I'M BACK! There is a lot to catch up on. So much happened in the two weeks I was in Rome and Vienna. It was a great trip, but I am glad to be back home. I even met a B5 fan at one of my classes!

Here is a suggestion from Ranger Gary -- who answered his own question -- and it is on the Discussion Page.

Spanning the last 20 years of Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV, which three TV shows were most underrated/underappreciated and had the plug pulled too soon (2 seasons or less)? Why did they deserve a longer life?

Alternatively, in your opinion which three shows during the same period lasted way too long and never should have made it past their 1st season? Why should these 3 overrated TV shows should have expired ASAP?

Send in your thoughts and comments to and I will post them on the Discussion Page for everyone to share and enjoy. See what has come in so far. If you see an old topic you want to respond to, go right ahead. We enjoy hearing from you.

For those of you not familiar with CRUSADE, here is a synopsis of the plot:
In 2267 the Earth is quarantined, having been infected with a deadly plague by an attacking alien force. Scientists estimate that it will kill every inhabitant within 5 years, not nearly enough time for a cure to be developed. So the planet's only hope lies with the Excalibur, an advanced prototype starship sent out to search ancient alien ruins for their former inhabitant's secrets, hoping that somewhere out there a cure can be found.

Stephen Austin portrayed the wonderful Pak'Ma'Ra Ambassador on Babylon 5. He is part of a month-long comedy tour of military bases. Stephen has enjoyed performing at military bases here at home and sent in this report to let us know what he has been up to:

Hi All.
Computer time has been sparce and I don't have much now so I have to make this quick.

After we left Kyrgystan we went to a base called "K-2" in Uzbekystan. A former Soviet Air Base. Let me tell you, for an old "cold war" vet such as myself, I never would have imagined ever visiting here. Let alone being up close and personal with old Mig 25's and 27's. I'll post the pictures when I get home.

We had a great show at K-2 and then the next day left for Afghanistan via C-130 transport. We'll we are all safe and sound. It is a very strange feeling to be here. This is officially a War Zone. Everyone wears a gun. Loaded and ready.

We've been based at the Bagwha Air Base about 30 miles outside of the capitol city of Kabul. We had a show yesterday at one of the forward Fire Bases "Camp Phoenix", just outside Kabul. Did it outside on the back of a platform truck. A real "Bob Hope" kinda moment. We had an audience of about 150. It was freezing but we went on and not a single sole left until we we're done and then they wanted to hang around and talk with us and get autographs. What an experience.

This is a very windy and dusty place. For those in L.A. it's like a constant Santa Ana Wind condition. It's tough on the throat.

Everyone here has been great to us.

We do a show tonight here at Baghwa and then tom. it's off to Kandahar on the eastern part of the country. We do one show there and then to Pakistan for a couple of days.

Gotta run. Miss you all. Be good to each other.

Amazing Stories #603 AMAZING STORIES: An old favorite is returning to newstands! Amazing Stories returns with a September 2004 issue. Amazing Stories is one of the most beloved magazines in the history of science fiction. Launched in 1926 under the watchful eye of legendary editor Hugo Gernsback, Amazing Stories introduced generations of fans to exciting adventure and equally exciting cover art. The magazine was published regularly (as a monthly, bimonthly or quarterly) all the way up to 1995.

Now WotC and Paizo Publishing have revived Amazing Stories yet again with the "first issue of the 21st century!" - issue #603 (September 2004), a slick magazine-sized monthly that hit newsstands on August 3, 2004. This new Amazing promises a much wider range of subject matter than its previous incarnations. This isssue includes 20 pages of original fiction from luminaries such as Harlan Ellison, Gene Wolfe and Bruce Sterling, it is also packs in news, reviews and interviews covering feature films, DVDs, books, comics - even genre-related music CDs.

United Federated Planets

The Babylon 5 Sector of United Federated Planets The Babylon 5 Sector is a chartered branch of United Federated Planets (UFP); a not-for-profit fan club for all fans of Star Trek, science fiction and fantasy. We've been part of UFP almost from the time the series first went on the air. We welcome all fans of Babylon 5--from the series & TV movies, to "Crusade" & "Legend of the Rangers," to the literary works in between. Our parent organization, UFP, has its roots in Star Trek & the late Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future; which includes community service along with social & fan-related activities. Our sector takes those ideas and puts them into the Babylon 5 universe that J. Michael Straczynski created. We're here for fellowship, good times, service and, in a way, living the fantasy that is Babylon 5. To that end, we enjoy role-play via the written word & live action; costuming; discussions; literary works; and anything else that we can imagine. No matter what you're interested in, we can accomodate you. We have positions currently available on the sector staff--EarthDome, EarthForce and the Alliance; chapter opportunities limited only by your imagination; and ways for you to live out your Babylon 5 fantasy. You can even be part of the B5 station staff! Our sector staff is available to answer your questions about what we do, how to join, how to start a B5 chapter, and more. To contact us, visit In addition, we also put out a newsletter called "Voice of the Alliance." This newsletter--available in electronic & hard copy formats--informs our sector members with staff reports, upcoming events, available staff positions, chapter activities and more.

Here's a recent note from JMS on the subject:

Just an FYI to those who've been using the Ventura Blvd. mail drop for fan mail to actors....

As mentioned before, we're phasing out the forwarding of fan mail because we a) don't have the resources, complicated by b) the actors have scattered to the four winds, and it makes it very difficult to get everything to everybody in a timely fashion.

So, having provided prior mail to actors coming to the Ventura Blvd. mail drop will be sent back. Mail to actors should be sent via their official fan clubs. I will still be taking mail there, since it's my mailbox, but that's it.

Just so's y'all know and save a few bucks on postage and returns.
