Interview: Supanova guest Colin Donnell talks Chicago Med, the death of Tommy Merlyn & arm wrestling Chris Hemsworth

Colin Donnell is a name that has been around for quite some time in the DC/CW Universe with his character of Tommy Merlyn in CW’s Arrow TV series.

Interview: Hugo Weaving talks about ABC’s Seven Types of Ambiguity, V For Vendetta and Kicking John Wick’s Ass

One of Australia’s top leading film and TV actors, Hugo Weaving is not a name you forget. With so much versatility and strength in every role he takes on, it’s hardly surprising he is a household name throughout the world. From his 1994 role as Tick (or Mitzi if you prefer) in Priscilla Queen of The Desert to his global break-out in The Wachowski’s The Matrix Trilogy,  V for Vendetta, The Lord of The Rings, Captain America The First Avenger and the list goes on, he’s been involved in his fair share of big screen blockbusters.

For many of us geeks and nerds, Christopher Judge has been in all our lives since 1997, the year Stargate SG -1 entered our universe. The one show none of us thought possible; how could you outdo such a wonderful film? Well, it grew beyond all our wildest expectations and became one of the longest-running science fiction series of our time, spanning ten whole seasons and then branching off into spin-off series and movies of its own, in no small part to Chris’s character, Teal’c the Jaffa Warrior....

Nick Offerman talks about working with his wife Megan Mullally on You, Me and the Apocalypse and Summer of 69: No Apostrophe

You, Me and the Apocalypse was an underrated 10 episode mini-series that debuted on Sky 1 in the UK back in 2015, before making its way to the US the following year. Now, the show seems to be doing the rounds around the world – and having caught the series on some flights recently, I got to ask Nick about his brief role in the series.... Continue Reading
