Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

For those Bakula (I don't know why I always almost type 'Blakula') fans, it looks like Mr. Archer himself will be portraying a character in the Steven Soderbergh-directed, Matt Damon-starring film....

[The trailer is currently on Youtube]...

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

It looks like Scott is one of the leading characters too! He probably gets more than a few minutes' worth of screen time since he's supposed to be some sort of FBI Agent directing the sting operation.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

Yeah, I thought that was Bakula in the trailers, but it was so quick I couldn't be certain.

Good stuff to hear, though.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

I saw a review on tv and they said Scott Bakula did a great job as the Fbi agent and that he was good in the role.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

I went to see this last night. I loved it, and not just because Bakula was in it. It's kind of like a Coen Brothers movie, only because it has a certain storytelling "style" and you'll either like or hate it. But, yeah, hilarious and so good. Matt Damon's performance is really, really great.

Ah, damn, the movie won't be released here until November 5th. Well, I plan to see it then. The trailer looks promising.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

Even though its by Soderbergh, some advance views claim it has a Coen brothers feel to it. Which makes me all the more excited to see it.

Well, to be fair Blalock did this shitty, unimpressive cop thriller a few years back while she was still on ENTERPRISE. But it was no good...and in fact filmed a year or two before it was finally dusted off and released to a zero audience.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

Here's a short interview with Scott Bakula about his role in the movie (and about other stuff, too, like what he thought of the Archer/Porthos reference in Trek XI). It's probably been posted elsewhere on the board but I thought it was fun.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

I caught that video earlier today. Great to see Scott back in the game, with quite a big film role and hopefully, back to being a series regular soon too. I think longish hair suits him. Maybe the locks help keep his outlook more lighthearted and youthful. The shorter it gets, the older and more serious he looks.

Re: Scott Bakula in 'The Informant'

I saw it and thought it was pretty good. I think overall the movie didn't quite deliver what I think it wanted to: a piece of absurdity that got more absurd every second.

I did, however, think Matt Damon was fun, Patton Oswald and the Smothers Brothers were good and that Scott Bakula was a lot of fun. There's a line in the movie from Matt Damon's character that says he liked Scott Bakula's -- he seemed likable like he'd want to go fishing with him. I think that's both Bakula's strength and curse.

Great to see Scott back in the game
I don't think he ever left. He's been doing various television shows (Boston Legal, New Adventures of the Old Christine, Chuck, etc.) and this movie since Enterprise ended. He seems incredibly busy to me! In fact, I can't think of a lot of actors more in the game.
