HARRY POTTER: The Sun, a British tabloid, reported that production on the latest Harry Potter movie, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN was halted when the train used as the Hogworth Express was vandalized. In the popular books by J.K. Rowling, the Hogwarts Express transports Harry Potter and his friends to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their third year. The bright red train had been covered in graffiti and damage to the rented train cost an estimated $5,000 to fix. James Shuttleworth, from the West Coast Railway Company which operates the train, said that the vandalism was "heartbreaking" and called the perpetrators "mindless toerags."
ALIAS: Djimon Hounson, last seen in LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE, will appear in at least two episodes of ALIAS playing a new adversary for heroine Sydney Bristow. His character will be the leader of a evil organization that the CIA wants to eradicate.
FINDING NEMO: FINDING NEMO closed the summer season as the summer’s biggest film. The G-rated undersea adventure has netted $332.4 million since its release
INSIDE SCI-FI THIS WEEK: Thursday, September 4: FIREFLY - THE MOVIE: In today's Hollywood Reporter, you can read about Joss Whedon's success in turning
FIREFLY, an all too short lived TV series on Fox, into a feature film. Whedon has teamed with Universal Pictures on the
project, set to go into production in the first quarter of 2004. Universal recently acquired the rights to FIREFLY from 20th
Century Fox Television, where Whedon's Mutant Enemy Inc. production company has a television deal. Whedon is producing
the film through his Mutant Enemy Inc. along with studio-based producer Barry Mendell. Mendell, a former agent at UTA, used
to represent Whedon. Mutant Enemy president Christopher Buchanan is executive producing. Universal production president Mary Parent is shepherding the project. "Ever since the show went off the air, our fan base has grown even more," Buchanan said. "We've had tremendous outpouring from the U.S. and Canada as well as the U.K., which just finished a run of 'FIREFLY' over there. Every comic book and sci-fi convention has had a 'Firefly' presence since the show first aired." Whedon produced 15 hours of television, including a two-hour episode of FIREFLY. Three shows never aired on Fox but will likely be featured on the series' DVD release, due out in December. Buchanan said fans created such a demand that DVD presales on Amazon.com sold out within 24 hours.
BATMAN: According to The Hollywood Reporter, there is quite a long list of contenders for the title role in the next
BATMAN movie, to be directed by Christopher Nolan (MEMENTO). Atop the list are: Christian Bale, Cillian Murphy, Joshua Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Henry Cavill and Eion Bailey, with another possibility being Hugh Dancy (that is, if he can pry himself away from the shooting of KING ARTHUR.) A number of internet sites indicate Bale has long been rumored to be one of the top contenders for the role. Gyllenhaal, star of DONNIE DARKO, had been an alternative for the role of Peter Parker in SPIDER-MAN s before Tobey Maguire settled his issues with the filmmakers. Cavill was reported under consideration for the lead role in the new SUPERMAN film; is new to the mix for the Dark Knight role. The same can be said for Murphy (28 DAYS LATER), Bailey (MINDHUNTERS) and Jackson. Dancy's name was first mentioned late last month on Dark Horizons and IGN FilmForce. A production date has not yet been set, but it is rumored to be in February of 2004.
ALIAS: The second season six-disc box-set is due out in December.

SMALLVILLE: SMALLVILLE has been about change -- Clark, Lana, Pete and Chloe -- all changing, developing, discovering. For
the last two years, Chloe has had her heart broken more than once, but she has matured and Allison Mack says her character Chloe will step to the fore this year and toward the dark side. She will be faced with the question, "Am I the most important person in my life or are my friends?' That's a tough question. It's good. It's very tantalizing, the dark side, and it's very interesting to her. Lionel Luthor [John Glover] makes it sound even more tantalizing. So she definitely plays with it and touches it, and I think that Chloe definitely has it in her to go that way." Season three begins on October 1 with "Exile," part one of a two-part opener that will conclude the following week with "Phoenix."
XENA: The second season of XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS is being released by Anchor Bay Entertainment today. This seven-disc boxed set includes all 22 episodes from the 1996-97 season, audio and video commentaries with stars Lucy Lawless, Renee O'Connor and producer Robert Tapert on three episodes as well as a 30-minute interview with the trio, photo galleries, "Xena Chronicles" trivia and actor/director biographies. To celebrate Lucy Lawless' involvement with the season two set, Anchor Bay will donate a portion of the proceeds from each DVD sold to The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Additionally, Anchor Bay is also offering a $15 rebate if you also purchase either the XENA season one or HERCULES season one box sets. The XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS - SEASON TWO DVD box set is retail priced at $69.98 and is out today in stores.
ANGEL: Today is also the release date for the second season of ANGEL by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. This six-disc set compiles all 990 minutes worth of the show's sophomore season which includes the introduction of series regular Lorne (he's green, has horns, likes to sing) and the return of Angel's former love and hellraiser, Darla. Bonus material includes commentaries for two episodes, scripts for two episodes ("Darla" and "Disharmony"), four featurettes, a still gallery and blue prints. The season two DVD set of ANGEL retails for $59.98 US/$89.98 CDN.
NBC BUYS VIVENDI: The acquisition of VIVENDI (including SCIFI Channel, USA Network and Universal Pictures film studio) has been in the works for a very long time. Yesterday, NBC was the only one standing, transforming the last major TV network owner without studio affiliation into a major media conglomerate. "This is a fabulous deal for NBC," said Ken Marlin, managing partner at media investment bank Marlin & Associates. "It is a strategic coup at a great price and catapults their entertainment assets into the big leagues." NBC and Vivendi Uni have yet to outline how their merged assets would work together. But Vivendi Uni chairman and CEO Jean-Rene Fourtou said the new firm will benefit considerably from "the reinforcement of existing channels" through cross-programming and other measures.
BATMAN AND AOL: This Fall, a brand new online comic strip will be introduced, created for America Online by DC Comics. Through a special agreement between AOL and DC Comics, Batman: Shadow of Sin Tzu will appear online exclusively on AOL five days a week. This new Batman ongoing storyline was developed especially for the online environment and for KOL, AOL's new experience for kids, which will be available to consumers this Fall. In the upcoming daily strip written by Mark Schultz and with art by Rick Burchett, two of comics' finest talents, Gotham's most notorious villains have banded together under mysterious circumstances. Batman must discover who is behind this diabolical conspiracy before an all-out war descends on the city. Could it be Two-face, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman, the Joker, or perhaps Sin Tzu - the latest criminal mastermind and shadowy eastern mystic created by comic book superstar Jim Lee and Flint Dille? As the mystery unfolds, kids can go online each weekday and get a new episode in this exciting year-long serial. "'Batman: Shadow of Sin Tzu' is the first-ever strip exclusively developed by DC for the online environment, and we are thrilled to give AOL members access to this special online edition of such an exciting comic," said Richard Bruning, Senior VP & Creative Director at DC Comics. "By bringing this world-class superhero to the Internet, we are literally bridging the generational gap between parents who grew up reading Batman stories in comic books and watching him on television and their kids who will now be able to check out Batman's daily adventures online." America Online will introduce KOL, the first version of AOL designed entirely for kids, this Fall. Combining exclusive content from industry leading kids brands and all-new original programming, this new service will offer kids a fun and entertaining online experience just for them that is fully integrated with AOL's Parental Controls.

WEEKEND BOXOFFICE: This was the biggest Labor Day weekend in boxoffice history. MGM/United Artists' "Jeepers Creepers 2"
scared up an estimated $18.5 million and topped a field of holdovers and expanding indie films. The Walt Disney Co. placed three films in the holiday weekend's top five. Disney's "Freaky Friday" continued its successful run with a second-place finish and an estimated $11.7 million take. "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl " and the Western "Open Range," were tied at fourth with an estimated $10.2 million each. Sony's actioner "S.W.A.T." stormed in third place with an estimated $10.5 million gross. Overall, the boxoffice ended the summer season on a high note with four films -- "S.W.A.T.," "Seabiscuit," "The Italian Job," and "Charlie's Angels" -- breaking the $100 million barrier during the weekend. The weekend's top 12 films were also up 11% compared to last year, and The Hollywood Reporter projects that the cumulative gross for all films in release this weekend will land somewhere in the low- to mid-$120 million range, a solid improvement from last year's $115.8 million cume and the previous 2001 record of $118.9 million.
ANGEL: According to the TV Guide, Sarah Michelle Gellar (BUFFY) will be a guest on two episodes of ANGEL two episodes this year.
When you say -- during "sweeps" period of course — either February or May. The president of the WB network told the magazine that bringing some of the characters from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" over to "Angel" — either to visit or to stay — helped in deciding not to cancel the show.
ANGEL makes its season premiere Oct. 1.

PETER WINGFIELD: You may or may not recognize the name -- you definitely will recognize the face.
Peter Wingfield has had some very memorable roles in science fiction series & movies. He was Methos on
THE HIGHLANDER. I know him best for his role on STARGATE SG-1, but he has also turned up in the X-MEN 2.
Peter talks to Frank Garcia about moving to Vancouver and working on X-MEN 2 with Hugh Jackman, Patrick
Stewart, Ian McKellan and Halle Berry. Read the entire interview at
NEW FALL TV SEASON: Have you had a chance to check out the new fall season ahead for each of the
networks? Over at Zap2it.com
there is a review for each network. I don't know about you, but there are a few that I'll need to check out
closely. Can't wait to see TARZAN. Loved the story and movies as a kid and still can't miss an old Johnny
Weismuller version on the tube. CBS looks like a winner to me this year. They will have Navy NCIS, Cold
Case, The Handler, THe Brotherhood of Poland, N.H. and Joan of Arcadia. Other networks have slim pickins'
as far as my viewing tastes. THe WB will have TARZAN, UPN has JAKE 2.0 and ABC has Karen Sisco. All look
promising but time will tell. I'm not much for comedy, so you'll have to help with reviews on any new shows
that you particularly like. Overall, it looks like networks are moving ahead with more drama and comedy
series. TARZAN and JAKE 2.0 look like the only SF entrants.
Sunday, August 31: AMAZING SPIDERMAN: Issue #57 is now on news stands. I picked up my issues yesterday. As quickly
as they fly off shelves, you might want to do the same.
NEWS: As with any Sunday, there isn't a lot of news to report -- especially a Sunday before a
holiday. Most non-news services have closed for the weekend and there isn't a lot of information available.
A reader sent in a problem encountered with Season Two DVDs for Babylon 5. You may want to check to see if
you have the same thing -- or perhaps there are other things you noticed. One reader wrote me to say that
The Zocalo (familiar name) changed to The Bazaar somewhere within the Third Season. I guess I'll have to
keep an eye out for that one. Anyone else notice anything? Send along your observations.
E-MAIL ZOCALO TODAY: I sent out an e-mail version of the newsletter yesterday and with all the
virus alerts going out, I hope you aren't having as much trouble as I am. I have checked my computers and
have found nothing, so it's not me! E-mail is becoming a very frustrating exercise in deleting messages
that I don't recognize the sender or the subject. So if you sent me a note and haven't received a response,
please send it again -- with The Zocalo or something in the subject line. The folks creating all these
viruses have far too much time on their hands. And it would be so nice if they could devote that time to
some creative--helpful endeavors.

13th FLOOR: According to Variety, X-FILES executive producer Frank Spotnitz has set up a supernatural series at FX tentatively titled THE 13th FLOOR. Spotnitz is working with novelist Brad Meltzer and Washington insider Steve "Scoop" Cohen on the series about
a lawyer who serves as an advocate for dead people who believe they've been wrongly condemned to hell.
IQ Spotnitz is also linked with an upcoming CBS series -- IQ -- a murder mystery series with a unique (and top secret) twist to it. All Spotnitz would say of IQ's protagonist is that they have a "fascinating mind" and the show is more like older, classic whodunits from TV land. Spotnitz has written the pilot for IQ and will serve as executive producer on the series.
STARGATE SG-1: Over at Zap2It.com there is a delightful piece on Amanda Tapping - Maj. Samantha Carter on STARGATE SG-1. This year she actually gets to have a love life -- and the guy doesn't die. See how Amanda is handling the changes! WARNING: May contain some spoiler information.
MUTANT X: On October 5, ADV Films will release Mutant X: Season One, Disc 5, the fifth DVD volume of the first season of the syndicated television series Mutant X.

PROBLEMS WITH BABYLON 5 DVDS
Ranger Bruce from Uncomyn Gifts sent along the following note regarding the Season Two DVD. It made me
wonder if anyone else has encountered any problems or seen any changes that they would like to raise
with other Babylon 5 fans. I have received a couple of notes, but so far there hadn't been anything
major to mention. See if you have the same problem Bruce has.
Have you had any of your readers mention a production error in the B5 S2
DVD set? I have not had a chance to verify it, but one of my customers says
that Knives is on the disks twice - at the end of Disk 4 and the beginning
of Disk 5. And the booklet is incorrect from disk 4 on. It shows that there
is only 1 episode on disk 6, but there are actually 2. Someone needs to
check to see if any episodes are missing from the DVDs... Is there anyone
that should be notified over at Warner, or perhaps JMS?
If you have the problem Bruce mentions above -- or you have any others, drop me a note and I'll
compile them to share with all of our readers.
iBOOKS PUBLISHES JMS' PROSE WORK
He raised the bar for epic science-fiction storytelling on television with his
syndicated series Babylon 5, then followed it by elevating the way in which
superhero tales are told with his critically acclaimed scripts for Marvel's
The Amazing Spider-Man and Supreme Power. Now, New York-based publishing house
ibooks, inc. is pleased to announce that it has solidified plans with Hugo,
Eisner and Emmy award-winning writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski to
re-introduce his growing number of fans to some of his earlier works.
October 2003 will see the release of Demon Night, Straczynski's first novel.
"What made Demon Night work", says Straczynski in a new afterword written
specifically for this edition, "and the reason that it has now been picked up
for republication by ibooks, is that I wrote it for myself, out of a love of
the form, the genre, and a desire to be entertained by a story told about
characters who mattered to me."
Following Demon Night will be Straczynski Unplugged, to be released in April
2004, a collection of published and all-new short stories, including a number
of dark tales adapted from his episodes written for the TV series The New
Twilight Zone. At press time, release dates for the remaining titles, the
horror novel Othersyde and the supernatural-mystery Tribulations, had not been
Demon Night is not ibooks' first encounter with the writer, however: His
best-selling comic book series J. Michael Straczynski's Rising
Stars" published by Top Cow Comics was novelized for ibooks in two volumes
by author Arthur Byron Cover. Both volumes are still available from book
retailers, with Book 3 to follow after the series reaches its conclusion.
One doesn't have to look far to see just how popular a writer Straczynski has
become in recent years. At this year's Comic-Con International: San Diego,
Marvel Comics announced that pre-orders for his upcoming Mature Readers series
Supreme Power passed the 100,000-copy marks a new record for retailer orders
on a Mature Readers title. He has worked as writer/producer for such series as
Murder, She Wrote, Jeremiah and Walker, Texas Ranger, and he has published over
500 articles and numerous short stories for such publications as the Los
Angeles Times, Time Inc, Amazing Stories, Penthouse, Writer's Digest,
Pulphouse, The Los Angeles Herald Examiner and Twilight Zone Magazine.
Scheduled for release in October 2003, Demon Night is a trade paperback-sized
novel retailing for $11.95, available now for ordering through comic shops,
book stores, and on-line book retailers (ISBN 0-7434-7522-4).

SEASON TWO BEGINS OCTOBER 10. Previously posted as as September 19, Showtime has put the actual premiere
date for JEREMIAH out on the website www.sho.com/jeremiah as October 10.
JEREMIAH AND JMS FOR SEASON THREE
Here is a note from the B5 moderated newsgroup related to JMS continuing with JEREMIAH into season three:
"There was a lot in that article on the Pulse that was really badly reported,
things were misphrased, two different sentences were put into one, sections are
wholly incomprehensible...it's just a train wreck of a piece.
However, even though the article totally misstated the sentence so it didn't
make any sense, the last phrase is correct, in that I have zero desire to
return to a third season of Jeremiah. Showtime was great, no mistake, but MGM
has overall been the most heinous, difficult and intrusive studio I've ever
worked for. I've worked for, and had great relations with, Viacom, Universal,
Warner Bros., and a bunch more. But I will never, ever, work for the present
administration at MGM.
I didn't know why so many other writers had a problem there and never wanted to
go back. Now I do."
In another posting, he mentioned:
I read on the net -- was never informed by MGM -- that Jeremiah will be coming to DVD in January or February of next year, and season 2 begins September 19th on Showtime.
** The Pulse article referred to can be found at http://www.comicon.com/cgi-bin/pulse.cgi?http%3A//www.comicon.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi%3Fubb%3Dget_topic%26f%3D36%26t%3D001223.
There are a couple of places where you can find information on JEREMIAH. Monica has a very up-to-date site at http://abyss.hubbe.net/jeremiah/. She has a newsletter that you can sign
up for as well so that information comes into your mailbox on a regular basis. The "official" website is located at http://sho.com/jeremiah/. It isn't terribly timely, but it does have background
about the show if you need it.
Here is a discussion topic from Ranger Gary! This one will test your powers of observation -- and memory!
After recently watching most of seasons 1-4 of Highlander I noticed about 10 actors who later showed up in the Stargate SG1 Series (there were three in just two back-to-back episodes including Michael Shanks and Don Davis!). There are many actors who have been in two or more great scifi series (its like the 7 degrees of separation).So, it would be great to see who could name actors who have been in 3 or more of the following series (regular cast members such as Lockley who crossed over from B5 to Crusade do not count. Also, good Canadian actors seem to have an advantage in that most of these shows are filmed there):
Highlander: the Series
The Outer Limits (because so many Scifi actors show up here for cameos)
I left out all of Star Trek on purpose because you know that the great Jeffrey Combs and "Q" would dominate the discussion. The actor does not have to be a lead in any of the shows.
Send in your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll start posting them on the Discussion
Page for everyone to share.
KEEPING UP WITH CAST AND CREW
DANIEL DAE KIM: Over at StarTrek.com you can find out about the season premiere of ENTERPRISE. Look closely and you'll see Daniel's name under
Guest Cast -- Corporal Chang.
PETER WOODWARD: Ranger Spiffy reports: The History Channel UK website has a simple on-line game of Peter Woodward's Conquest. The setup is hilarious! Peter's character challenges the player to a duel involving crossbows, longbows, and battle axes. The design is not morbid--it is cartoonish and the quips from Peter's character are very comical. I think that the game would appeal to anyone who likes history and especially the Conquest tv show. (It may also be a good stress-reliever!) Go to http://www.thehistorychannel.co.uk/index_continue.htm, select games and go to
GARY COLE: A very familiar face will be showing up on THE WEST WING in the fall. Captain Gideon from
CRUSADE, Gary Cole, will be sworn in as the Vice President of the United States. Cole will play Colorado
congressman Robert "Bingo Bob" Russell starting with the show's third episode this fall. The character is
described by Variety as having a few unconventional ideas.
CATCHING UP WITH JERRY DOYLE: Jerry is currently filming a feature film titled OPEN HOUSE and just completed an HBO original feature titled LOST TREASURE. In 2002, three independent features Jerry starred in, CODE HUNTER, DEVIOUS BEINGS and THE LONG RIDE HOME, were released. Jerry has done extensive voice over work on animated television series' such as Duckman and Captain Simian, along with numerous national commercial voice campaigns. Jerry is a "political junkie" and is considering running for Congress in Florida's 16th District. For those of you in the Chicago area, here's a bulletin. Jerry Doyle will be sitting in with MANCOW Thursday/Friday, August 15 and 16, at Q101 and can be heard on many stations across the country. This is a morning drive format, 5:30A - 10:00A, CST.
JASON CARTER/RICHARD BIGGS UPDATE:: Jason Carter's Fan Club passed along the following update for Rick & Jason:
Convention Reminder: September 26-28, 2003: MSFFA in Merrillville, IN. See details below.
Book on CD: Jason Carter has completed narration work on "Ill Met by Moonlight" by Sarah A. Holt. The 8 unabridged CD set is available

Film Project: Jason Carter and Richard Biggs are currently working on the film Revenant: (which also features Anita La Selva from Earth: Final Conflict). Film synopsis: Five years ago, six cops did the unthinkable. One of them returns home for the funeral of his partner, and finds himself confronted by the past-the woman he abandoned and the friends who share his guilty secret. When those friends are murdered one by one, his search for answers will lead he and his former lover to a final confrontation with a secret that refuses to be kept, an evil that won't stay buried, and a restless spirit that reaches out to claim them all. Principal photography begins in Fall 2003. The current trailer for this film can be found at The Official Jason Carter Fan Club site at www.jasoncarterfanclub.com. Investment opportunities are also available, information at the fan club site.
Behind the Red Door (Jason Carter appears as Sonny) is still airing on Showtime (check your local listings) but is also available for rent on VHS and DVD from Blockbuster. Check your local stores or their website (www.blockbuster.com) for availability.

BABYLON 5 ROLE PLAYING AND FACT BOOK
The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game and Fact Book
"Signs and Portents"
By Matthew Sprange
From the review written at http://www.scifi.com/sfw/current/games.html B5 fans might want to pick up this game whether they actually play it or not. Based on the first season of the series, the "fact book" portion of the book includes an overview and maps of Babylon 5 and an episode-by-episode breakdown of the first season.
TRADING CARD HELP
Ranger Tia sent along this note to share with B5 card collectors:
Don't know if you've heard of my card program yet or not, but I thought
the other B5 card collectors might like to try it out. With having almost
all of the B5 trading cards and CCG cards available and no program to keep
track of them withm, I started writing my own. Here's the website for it.
Go half way down and click on the small screen shot for a full size screen
shot. I have the pic of Pat Tallman's card from the Profiles card set
feautured in the shot.
Oh, and I also have a lot of the card lists already saved as files so
people won't need to type in all the card names. Being written by a B5
fan, ALL the card lists have already been made and are downloadable. :)

Seasons 2 and 3 of the television series. Editor Tom Palmer Jr. said, "We'll get to see what 'Bad Clark' has been up to in Metropolis
and it ain't too nice!" The lead story is written by Mark Verheiden and Clint Carpenter, with art by Tom Derenick and Adam DeKraker.
The back-up story, written by Clint and Jake Black with art by Pete Woods and Ron Randall, focuses on Whitney. "We saw that he

32 pages, $2.99, in stores on Sept. 3.
JMS has pointed everyone over to http://www.comicbookresources.com/columns/?column=13 for an answer to the burning question, Where is Rising Stars?
While JMS' note above listed a particular column at Comic Book Resources, that page reference has changed. To read what is going on
between JMS and Top Cow, go to http://www.comicbookresources.com/columns/index.cgi?column=litg&article=1670..
A number of readers have asked about JMS' comic book series, RISING STARS. It has been quite a while since the last issue
came out and they were wondering when they might expect to see the next one. JMS was asked this question in the B5 moderated
newsgroup not long ago. His response was:
June 3: That depends entirely on a situation with Top Cow that is in need of resolution. The delay in writing has not been a delay
in writing; it's been working through some problems with Top Cow for the last...almost year now. The final issues won't be turned in
until those issues are resolved.
BABYLON 5 NOVEL - ON BOOK SHELVES NOW
DelRey is reprinting the original Babylon 5 novels. They started with

OF SORROWS. The release date is scheduled for July 29, 2003. I love the new cover art! It can be pre-ordered from www.amazon.com.

BABYLON 5/CRUSADE PHOTOSHOP PHOTOS
Peter Woodward has sent along a new photo -- a rather dreadful one -- from his appearance on CHARMED. It will
be added to the collection of photos available from Peter, including additional copies of the Crusade poster in
photo format. Both are autographed by Peter.
You do NOT have to pay the prices asked for over at e-bay! Here are photos of B5 and Crusade cast members at
fantastic prices. Check out Photo Shop. Ordering is easy -- and you can't
beat the prices! Just let me know which photos you want and I'll check to make sure they are still in stock.
I-SCI-FI will be re-broadcasting their interviews with The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen cast and crew tonight from 7-9pm MDT (5-7pm EDT). These are pre-recorded so you will not be able to call in and be eligible for prizes. All of these people are special in different ways. You are sure to enjoy Dave Lea, fight choreographer and cool guy. He's been in several top flight movies and taught some of Hollywood's 'A' list of actors and actresses how to fight and look like they are fighting, including Sylvester Stallone, Sandra Bullock, Ben Affleck, Colin Farrell and more. Check out his nearly one hour interview! We had so much fun talking we lost track of time! He was just here in Utah filming on the fourth Crow movie and you're going to want to listen to every word he has to say.
If for some reason you have trouble getting the audio stream at I-SCI-FI, try ufpgalaxy.org, cosmiclandscapes.com, and now at radiostarfleet.com. Cosmic Landscapes, Radio Starfleet and UFPGalaxy rebroadcast live Thursday nights from 7-9 pm MDT and Cosmic Redux rebroadcasts the previous week's shows.
