Aaron Ashmore is realtor Randall Wishart in four episodes of the third season of CARDINAL. The show is based on Giles Blunt’s novels, and Wishart appears in the fifth book in the series, “Crime Machine“. In the book, Randall is married, and has a thing for younger women. He becomes involved in a murder investigation after he and art college student Sam Doucette (who will be played by Devery Jacobs) have a tryst in an empty house he is selling. Afterward, Randall leaves first, and Sam remains in the house for a bit. Then a young man and an older couple arrive, and the younger fellow shoots the older couple and cuts off their heads. CARDINAL Season Three will premiere on CTV in Canada on 24 January. A trailer is available on YouTube. The first two seasons are on HULU.

Catherine recruits a talk show agent in an attempt to profit from her mother’s life story, but it becomes increasingly obvious to her that Tammy’s death is her only way out and Tammy refuses to die. Olunike Adeliyi (Artura Senbek in “Heart-Shaped Box“) is also in the cast. TAMMY’S ALWAYS DYING completed filming in Toronto in December. No release date has been announced. Continue reading →
Kalinka Petrie (Brynn in “Necropolis Now“) will be Jeanne in the horror/comedy LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE, the story of a 23 year-old designer who falls in love four times only to have each of his lovers die suddenly. Convinced that he is cursed, Jonathan (Félix-Antoine Duval) is determined to give up on romance, until a new employee named Jeanne enters his life. With the help of a co-worker who is well-schooled in unexplained phenomena, Jonathan tries to figure out how to have Jeanne in his life without putting her in danger. Petrie told Karine Paradis of Envedette: “The most interesting thing about Jeanne’s character is that she’s the only one who does not know about Jonathan’s supernatural angle…so it was really interesting to play that, because she tries to find rational explanations, real explanations, to explain Jonathan’s bizarre behavior.” LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE premiered on the Canadian French language network Super Écran on 12 November. Episode 4, in which Jonathan has a difficult and emotional discussion with his mother and takes part in a dangerous rebirth session, will air on 3 December at 9pm. A trailer is available on Vimeo.

Dutch finds one of Khlyen’s red boxes in the green. Initially it is empty, but later it contains what appears to be an apple
Aneela, John, and D’Avin re-enter the green to free Dutch. It is understandable why Aneela needs D’Avin on the mission, because he has a unique ability to repel the green goo. And she does try (unsuccessfully) to persuade John to stay behind. (John is quite vulnerable to manipulation from The Lady and therefore completely useless in greenspace.) Remember back in Episode 3.2 when Zeph was the only one to figure out that “fake fire doesn’t burn”? One can’t help thinking that Zeph is the only one who could entirely refuse to accept The Lady’s artificial reality. John almost succumbed to a facsimile of Pawter. Zeph would never believe an artificial-Pip. Continue reading →
