Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

I believe her apology and the fact that she lacked knowledge about it and that it was only voicework. Like I said, I did the same thing for my company. I did VO work without knowing what the heck it was for.

Anyway, I hope all the haters read it and feel silly for doubting her. Kate is no idiot and I never thought for a second that she believed that crap.

Why should anyone feel silly? She wouldn't have been the first celebrity to have leapt before she looked, nor the first to have signed onto a project before she (and her agent) researched the project. No one is projecting any particular Mulgrew/Janeway hate, but expressing concern and confusion. Even Mr. Gardener's comments are perfectly in line with his normal combination of opportunism and cynicism.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

And for this so-called documentary, all this does is increase interest and views. There's no such thing as 'bad' publicity. Win/win for that nutjob.

And everybody is going to watch it to look for lines said by Mulgrew that actually clearly support the geocentrism idea.

I can't help wondering if there's any sort of legal action Kate could take.

Her bigger problem might be the fans she gains, who won't have heard that she distanced herself from the film.

I doubt it.

As we speculated and Kate confirmed, she was just a "voice for hire". She wasn't being paid to say "I, Kate Mulgrew, believe this to be true".

I suspect its the difference between being a narrator and actually endorsing the product.

I bet she's more careful in the future with her employers.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

For all we know, she just read some generic copy along the lines of "The Universe is a vast and mysterious place, full of unanswered questions," etc.

The crazy stuff could have been edited in later.

I was once interviewed for a vampire documentary on TLC. They filmed me walking pensively through a cemetery while expounding on the continuing popularity of the living dead. To this day, I've never seen the final product and have no idea who else they talked to or what the final conclusion of the show was.

For all I know, the final cut claimed that the moon orbited Dracula's castle . . .

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

We should of course teach both sides in schools and let the student decide for himself what's right: helio-centrism next to geo-centrism; evolution next to intelligent design; gravity next to intelligent falling; strong nuclear force next to intelligent sticking...

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

Hmmm. IMDB shows a Gregory or Greg Cox credited on a few titles.

Gregory Cox (I), actor, in X-Men: First Class.
Gregory Cox (II), self, in Steel Band Panorama.
Greg Cox (II), self, in Hands on a Hard Body: The Documentary.
Greg Cox (VI), camera dept., in Starfish.
Greg Cox (V), actor, in Frog Fortuna.
Greg Cox (III), sound dept., in Queen on Fire: Live at the Bowl.
Greg Cox (I), actor, in Lies My Mother Told Me.
Greg Cox (VIII), self, in NFL Monday Night Football.
Greg Cox (IV), visual effects, in The Wedding Date.
Greg Cox (IX), actor, in Cheery Point.
Greg Cox (VII), self, in 1985 Fiesta Bowl.

Greg Cox in Hands on a Hard Body sounds pretty interesting until you find out it's about a contest to see who can win a truck by keeping their hands on it the longest.
