I’m very close to losing my voice. That’s what fifty phone conversation over two days gets you – fifty being the number of actors who took me up on my offer to get on the phone with them to discuss their character, the show, what we responded to in their first audition, and most importantly, help put these new scenes in context in advance of their second round auditions. BIG casting week on the horizon!
But, of course, one role has already been filled! The part of The Android on Dark Matter will be played by my long-time buddy Ivon Bartok who you may remember from such roles as Blinky Cadet in the Stargate: SG-1 episode “Prodigy”.
Anyway, here he is at Friday’s costume fitting…
He’s sort of a cross between R2D2, Oscar the Grouch, and raver Gazoo.
Well, if you weren’t excited about the show before, I’m sure you are now with this HUGE casting announcement!
