Your Bridesmaid is a Bitch

The live reading of Your Bridesmaid is a Bitch, organised by Black List Live! took place yesterday. It looks like Jack played “Dad”. I had my money on “father of the bride” so I at least got part of it right.

A pic from the live reading:

When Spencer arrives home, he can no longer connect with the life he once led. Attempting to escape from the demons haunting him from a grizzly incident overseas and the family, friends, and girlfriend who expect the normal Spencer, he goes back to work at the local bookstore. It is there he meets Alice, a fascinating young woman with whom he is able to start unraveling his true self. Spencer and Alice stumble upon an old pulp comic about a local suburban legend from generations past: The Submarine Kid. Spencer learns of the Kid’s spectacular abilities of record-setting breath-holding. It is here that Alice and Spencer begin a deadly game with grave consequences that changes both of their lives forever. Spencer attempts to fight off the visions of his past and the immediate responsibilities of his reality in a magical underwater world he creates with Alice.

More Castle “Recoil” interviews

Jack is a popular guy this week! Eight more interviews since the last post!

From Digitalairwaves.net :

If you enjoyed Beckett’s first confrontation with Bracken, Coleman teased even more fireworks in tonight’s episode. “This episode in particular was incredible amount of fun because every single scene was just loaded with psychological impact,” he said. “Stana [Katic] is just so great and she’s so good in this part. The great joy in this episode for me was doing all these things with Stana – she and I know each other from Heroes and we have so much fun together.

“The first time we worked together [in "After the Storm"], when she finally got to get it all out,” he explained, “the scene where she ends up hitting me in the face with a gun, she was screaming and she was crying, and it was great for me because it kind of landed me in this place of what [her] character has been going through.

From Zap2It.com :

Every bad guy has his reasons, and every bad guy has his justification. And this guy has more than most. I think it was fairly obvious in the scene that we first had, where I started talking about all the great things I’ve done for people. And I think that is how he justifies himself.

On a macro level, I think he sees himself as a pretty good guy. And then on a micro level, I think he just sees himself as a bit Machiavellian. He’s going to do what it takes to get done what I need.

From TVGuide.com :

Both Marlowe and Coleman promise that this is not the end of the dance between Beckett and Bracken. “It keeps the ground shifting underneath both the characters and the audience,” Coleman says. “They’re both in this toxic pas de deux. You’re not sure who’s leading, you’re not sure who’s following, you’re not sure they’re even dancing to the same music! But they can’t seem to get away from each other.”

From Buddy TV :

Beckett obviously has hatred for the Senator, but are his feelings different for her?

Jack Coleman: I think [they are]. I think he thinks that there is maybe a trump card there; in that he is not blinded by hated for her. He doesn’t have any hatred toward her; he doesn’t have any hatred toward her mother. He was removing the obstacles and doing what had to be done, and that’s how he sees himself; that’s how he sees his actions, that’s how justifies himself. Now having said that, he was humiliated by her; both by being pistol-whipped and also that she’s got the drop on him. She had that information on him that keeps him from going after her or anyone she knows, because all of his secrets could be spilled. So he’s got a very healthy fear and respect for her, but he doesn’t have any hatred for her, other than not being a fan of being pistol-whipped. But I do think in general that it’s not the same kind of primal feeling.

From Ksite TV :

You’ve played a number of very iconic roles. Is there any past role, like HRG from Heroes or Bill Forbes from The Vampire Diaries, that you would like to someday revisit?

Hmm… well, HRG was definitely a great role; a role I had an incredible amount of fun with, and that kind of character is enormously fun to play because he’s a guy that’s got a little light, got a little dark, he can do the right thing, he can also kill somebody just because they represent a threat… so, that kind of character is a lot of fun to play, and I have to say that, especially in this episode, Bracken has a bit of that, so I really, really enjoyed having that.

Most of all, you want to have an effect on the lead characters when you come into a show, or when you do anything you do. You want to make sure that your character has an impact. Just going forward, that’s the kind of thing that I look for. In terms of returning to anything, Heroes is gone; Bill Forbes is dead… I continue to look forward, but I love what they did with this character of Bracken.

From THR:

“There is a responsibility there to uphold the mythology,” he said. “The unseen monster that builds and builds and builds and all of a sudden when he’s made palpable, there’s an obligation to bring something that lives up to the mythology. I was very happy to have this episode come up. It gave me a little bit more room, a little bit more of an arc.”

From TV Addict:

Last time we saw Senator Bracken he was pretty much painted as an outright villain. Is he really as bad as he seems, or might tonight’s appearance reveal a different side of him?
No… I think he is a villain! But like most villains he doesn’t see himself that way. Most people have many dimensions to them, and I think that’s true of Senator Bracken as well. He’s a bad guy who has done a lot of bad things, but he has a justification for all of it. He has done a lot of good for the people of New York City and the state and I think he sees himself as just a guy who is willing to do what needs to be done.

From Hollywood.com

He’s ba-ack! TV fans know Jack Coleman as many things: Angela’s Oscar-loving husband on The Office, Caroline Forbes’ late father on The Vampire Diaries — and once upon a time Coleman donned the alter ego of Noah Bennet on Heroes. But Castle fans best know this versatile actor as Senator William Bracken, the despicable man responsible for the murder of Beckett’s mother. Tonight Coleman returns to reprise his role as the smarmy senator in the all-new episode “Recoil,” and fans should prepare for one dangerously dark hour.
