WEB / BLOG COVERAGE
Mostly text and one photo. More to come.
EXCERPT: Rachel Luttrell said no one on the cast has been officially contacted about the Stargate Atlantis movie, and it’s only through the grapevine that they’ve heard it might be filmed next June. So, they are not at the point of negotiating contracts. Both Rachel and David seemed disappointed there was nothing definite yet.
EXCERPT: I had general admission, so I couldn't see Jason's face all that well, but he looked good. Was wearing the sunglasses to cut down on glare from the lighting and flash photos; apparently, one of his eyes is still inflamed from the injury, though he did say that it should be okay. Whew! And during the Q&A, he was already cracking jokes about using the scars to his advantage to get more roles (and the sympathy of the ladies, haha!). So he was in very good spirits.
This is a very good report, with lots of tidbits and photos.
EXCERPT: I just got back from the Creation Burbank Conventions and I was pleasantly surprised that Jason Momoa did attended after all. Yes, to me, it does look like his cuts will scar. He even called them his scars, making a joke that women thought scars were hot.
Several photos up and more promised.
EXCERPT: There are tons more, but I'll wait until I get home to upload them all to Photobucket for you! I really hope the video gets uploaded, because they were all so great, especially together, and I could never do it justice!
Text. From FIREFLY fan POV.
EXCERPT: I got a free photoshoot with Jewel! Could have got one with Hewlett too but didn't want to take advantage. I decided against paying for a Jewel shoot this time since I have so many already, you see.
EXCERPT: …in front of Teh Hewlett. *headdesk* It was at breakfast this morning. David is approaching the table and Snowflake starts this horrible "heh heh" laugh from a story earlier this weekend that just makes me lose it! So I'm squeaking away, David comes up "What's going on?" "She's squeaking." He leans down "OMG! You ARE squeaking! Please continue. How much time do we have?" Ugh... But then he touched my shoulder! "Are you OK now?" Hehe. It was kind of great after getting over the horrible embarassment....
Text, pictures and videos
EXCERPT: DAVID HEWLETT IS MY SQUISHY - Okay, still haven't checked comments from ages ago so I should technically get back to those before I post but I gotta say.. DAVID HEWLETT IS MY SQUISHY! Yes, I went to this years Creation Con in Burbank. And yes I squished me a David Hewlett. I also got to shake poor wounded Jason Momoa's hand….”
EXCERPT: Jason said “"...but he's in prison right now, so I'm sure he's got a lot of time on his hands. Yeah, but I'm really fortunate to have my eyeball and to be here, I got out about a week ago. It's healing up really nice, and besides, chicks dig scars, right? (crowd of women screams) That's a plus." …
EXCERPT: Hi everyone from Burbank. Jason visited our table at the breakfast this morning. He needs to wear sunglasses to protect his eye. He has a scar from above his left eyebrow to below his cheekbone. He will need surgery to repair his left tearduct since it was affected.
Fan photo ops with Rachel Luttrell and Gina Torres
EXCERPT: Then a guy from Stargate came by, who I didn't know. Beth asked him if he dressed himself, and he immediately became worried. He hesitated but answered truthfully (or so he says) that he did in fact dress himself. Beth said how we thought he was very well put together - and that it was actually Brooks who mentioned how fabulous his outfit was. Brooks gave a very flamboyant - Haaay! - and we all laughed. He then said, "Well...now I KNOW I look good." He was pretty funny.
