RINGER – Season 1 Episode 3 – SPOILERS
When Sarah Michelle Gellar dons the gown (by Douglas Hannant) at the end of this episode, it shows that she has fully accepted that she has taken on the identity of Siobhan, and is no longer Bridget. Note that the ballet she was planning to see (and did not) was Swan Lake, which is very appropriate to the plot of this episode.
Shivette manages to play the mysterious crew-cut guy (played by Jordan Marder), and Agent Machado (Nestor Carbonell) against one another to her own advantage. Machado is beginning to come off as Ahab-like.
Jordan Marder was a native-american mythological creature in X-Files episode #172.
Machado’s Moby, Bodaway Macawi (Zahn McClarnon) has done nasty things to Bridget’s Wyoming friend Malcom Howard (Mike Colter). Juliet (Zoey Deutch) has gone to visit her mother in Florida.
Darryl Stephens is Gregor who sells the gown to Shivette. He was Noah in NOAH’S ARK, and will be Frank Lewis in the film BOLDEN! due out later this year. It’s a biopic about the life of New Orleans musician Buddy Bolden.
Other interesting folks in this episode. Nikki McKenzie is Penny, assistant to Olivia. McKenzie is currently working on a horror film called DEAD STOP, by the same people who brought us seven SAW films. Someone named Denis Donohue is “laughing man” and I will need to watch the episode again, because I don’t remember him at all. Wes robinson is the electronics store clerk who teaches Bridget about cell phones. Robinson has done TV ads for Reddi Whip, Kelloggs, and Coffee Mate.
French-Canadian Michael Francoeur, the Paris bartender, got his start in films as a member of the Wagabou Tribe in the 1982 movie QUEST FOR FIRE.
The stripper shown briefly in this episode is not credited.
More on this episode later.
