Warehouse 13 will get a triple threat – that is, three guest stars well known in the SF community, on the upcoming episode to air July 25th, “Love Sick”.
Lindsay Wagner and Rene Auberjonois will reprise their previous guest roles. Wagner returns as Dr. Vanessa Calder, the in-house Warehouse doctor who is responsible for treating the team – and also has a romantic connection with Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek), while Auberjonois returns as Hugo Miller, a computer genius from decades past in the Warehouse, who Artie and Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) call to help them out of a life-threatening situation.
Sasha Roiz, who played Sam Adama on Caprica, the mobster brother to Joseph Adama, plays the mysterious and sinister Marcus Diamond.
And by the way, “Love Sick” was mentioned by stars Eddie McClintock and Saul Rubinek as among their favorites this season in the discussion we had with them.
Universal had some cold feet regarding the massive The Dark Tower project, putting it on hold back in May, but producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard still had hopes of working out a budget and schedule with the studio. Well, apparently Universal felt the cold creeping in and has now scrapped the project completely. Reportedly after reviewing the script from writer Akiva Goldsman for the first film and series, the studio balked and would only commit to the movie, but the producers really wanted to film the series in tandem with all the sets available.
Envisioned as a trilogy of movies as well as two limited TV series, the project certainly presented a big risk for the studio. Grazer and Howard are presumably free to shop the project around to another studio.
