Re: Summer Glau Joins The Cape...

I love her, but she has this bad coincidence of being on shows that get canceled

So do a lot of actors, since most shows get cancelled in the first year or two.

Re: Summer Glau Joins The Cape...

Agreed, a lot of shows are canceled in a year or two, it really has no bearing on her what so ever, considering that some of her roles have been contributed to previous roles (Cameron for instance, is credited to be because Josh Friedman watched Serenity, but I could be wrong). I'll definitely have to check it out, I'm a fan of her work and it's good to see her get something after she's had to drop a project recently.

Don't you mean the capetails?

It's good to see that she's working/acting.

That is an incredibly strange thing to say. This is what actors do. If one role ends, they seek another. It's called trying to stay employed. If you lost a job, wouldn't you try to find another one?

Re: Summer Glau Joins The Cape...

This is odd.

I remember watching, about 15 years ago, a show on NBC called The Cape and staring one of the actors who was a main character on Firefly.

I miss that Cape, but I wouldn't trade Chuck to get it, and Adam Baldwin, back.

That was the one about astronaut trainees at the Kennedy Space Center, right? Maybe it was carried on your local NBC affiliate, but it wasn't an NBC network show, it was first-run syndicated.

Or "grab onto the coattails of yet another business."

How does one grab on to the coattails of a pilot?
A show the article describes as a "Fall 2010 contender".

Re: Summer Glau Joins The Cape...

She has extremely limited range as an actress. Don't think this role will challenge that.

Jesus Christ in a chicken basket you have the insane ability to find a flaw in any post imaginable don't you?
This thread is about 15 posts and you've corrected three people already.
It's really not necessary. Just let some stuff go, OK?

I'd say this show is grabbing her coattails. She's one of those actors with a fanbase who get cast in shows, particularly genre shows, partly on the assumption that she will bring a built-in audience with her.

What else about this show has any promise? The premise is more than a tad sappy in that wretched Spielbergian way, and the lead actor is pretty much a nobody. James Frain as a (recurring?) villain sounds fun but he's hardly a household name.

She has extremely limited range as an actress.
How can you tell? She keeps being cast in robot roles. This is the first role I've seen her in where acting range might actually be called for.
