Doc (Rukiya Bernard) and Joline (Caroline Cave) are now a couple and are living together in Denver, Doc, whose real name is Sarah Carol, works at the local hospital. Joline is also working there, pretending to be a nurse, and has a creepy co-worker named Jared (Aidan Kahn) who says he recognizes her from somewhere. He asks her out, but retreats quickly when she says her girlfriend wouldn’t like it. Jaden is the same guy who asked Vanessa out when she gave blood at the clinic in Seattle where he worked shortly before the Rising (Episode 1.2). He told Vanessa at that time that he lived only a few blocks from her. Could Jaden be more than he seems? In any event, if Joline has a past in Seattle that she is concealing, it is going to come back to haunt her. Continue reading →
Aleks Paunovic (Julius) will be Detective Osgard in HARD POWDER, an English-language adaptation of the 2014 Norwegian black comedy “In Order of Disappearance” (aka Kraftidioten). In the US version, Nels (Liam Neeson), a Colorado snowplow operator, takes the law into his own hands after his son is murdered by a drug cartel. Nels sets out to find those responsible and inadvertently ignites a gang war. Directed by Hans Petter Moland, and filmed in British Columbia and Alberta, HARD POWDER will be released in Australia and New Zealand on 14 February. Kraftidioten can be streamed on Netflix.
Paunovic is also Bojan Boscovic, “a large, fearsome looking man with frostbite scars and stumped ears”, in the TV version of the 2013 movie SNOWPIERCER, which was set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment has killed everyone on the planet except for a fortunate few who managed to board a train that continually circles the globe, powered by a perpetual motion engine. In the TV series, Bojan is a Breachworker, performing one of the most dangerous jobs on the train. He’s used to the cold and hazards of the job, and comfortable enough to joke about the risk. The show will star Jennifer Connolly and Daveed Diggs. Graeme Manson (co-creator of ORPHAN BLACK) has replaced Josh Friedmann as showrunner. The pilot will be reshot (the new version just had its first readthrough), and will now be directed by James Hawes. The ten-episode series will air on TNT sometime next year. Outside the US, SNOWPIERCER will be available on Netflix. Continue reading →

This season, having found his sister, he betrays her wishes. Continue reading →
