Nov 27, 2014 For German fans:

Die erste Staffel von "Revolution" fängt am Freitag, den 28.11.2014, bei RTL Nitro an. Steven spielt zwar nicht in der ersten Staffel mit, sehenswert ist sie aber schon. Dadurch wird es etwas leichter, den Hintergrund der Folgen mit Steven zu verstehen.

Nov 1, 2014 For German fans:

Die Folge "Perception - Schattenseite" (1x09) mit Steven wird am Mittwoch, den 12. November 2014 um 20.15 Uhr bei VOX ausgestrahlt.

Pierce bekommt einen Brief von einem ehemaligen Studenten, Wesley Sumpter, der einer Verschwörung auf die Spur gekommen ist. Wesley behauptet, der Flugzeugabsturz des Senators Ted Paulson sei kein Unglück gewesen, sondern ein Attentat, hinter dem der Unternehmer Crawford steckt. Zwei weitere Personen seien bereits ermordet worden und Wesley soll der Nächste sein. Er übergibt Pierce eine Aktentasche mit Zeitungsausschnitten und wird daraufhin tödlich von einem Armbrustpfeil getroffen. Sofort informiert Pierce Moretti. Probert erscheint als erster am Tatort, doch die Leiche ist verschwunden und die Spurensicherung findet auch keine Blutspuren. (Text: VOX.de)

'The Lottery' Cancelled By Lifetime

Lifetime has made it official — opting not to review The Lottery for a second season. The cancellation was considered a foregone conclusion after the futuristic drama's freshman season averaged a paltry 700,000 in Live+Same Day. Compare that to the 1.8 million average for the second season of Devious Maids, which was recently renewed for a third season.

Conspiracy thriller The Lottery opened to 1.1 million total viewers in July paired with Witches Of East End.

[...]

Produced by Warner Horizon, the 10-episode The Lottery was set in a dystopian future when women have stopped having children, threatening extinction of the human race.

Oct 10, 2014 Steven filmed another episode of "Bosch" !!!

Creator of "Bosch" and author Michael Connelly @Connellybooks posted the following message on his Twitter account on Oct 10, 2014 at 6:46 PM PST:

"Night shoot. A clandestine meeting between Irving and O'Shea -- Echo Park. #BoschTV "

(O'Shea is the last name of Steven's character on the show: D.A. Richard 'Rick' O'Shea)


Oct 1, 2014 Steven filmed another episode of the Amazon Prime Series "Bosch." He will appear on the episode "Donkey's Years," episode 1x06. The air date is not known yet, but will be posted as soon as it is available.

Mar 23, 2014 News from Steven Culp himself:
(Thank you, Steven!)

Steven sent some words regarding his work on the series "Revolution" ...

QUOTE I'm sorry to have not been providing information about "Revolution" this year [...]. It's like I said in the interview [...]: I don't know how much of what I know should be kept secret and even I don't know that much. Telling the fans that I would be in a forthcoming episode would be giving away the fact that Truman's still alive, for example. So I've just remained quite the whole time.

And for the rest of this year, every time I get a new script I would think, "well, here's the one where I get killed," and I would be as surprised as anyone when I survived in the end. Now, of course, I have a bit more knowledge - I know how the season will end at this point - but I still can't give anything away. So everyone will just have to watch and see. UNQUOTE

Jul 22, 2012 Please read and help, if you can:

I found an entry (written in March) in a forum that says the following:

"I think I saw Steven Culp, who played Major Hayes, in a commercial that just started running for AT&T. The actor's voice was familiar, and I had to see the commercial a few times to convince myself it's him. It's the commercial where the wife is talking to the phone company, daughter rushes in to say she's been accepted at Juilliard, and wife then asks about bundling services, while daughter and hubby (Culp) are in the background. His hair is different in more ways than one -- longer, and gray!"

After reading that message I tried to find a video online and was looking at every AT&T commercial I could find, but had no luck.

Now I read a new entry on my Facebook page "a friend in the U.S. Midwest has told me that Mr. Culp is currently appearing in a series of television commercials for AT&T UVerse. I think it might be a regional thing, because I haven't seen the ads yet in the New York City area."

I tried to find a video clip online again, but could not find one.

If anyone who reads this knows where I can find one, please let me know. If anyone is able to record the commercial, please do so and let me know. I'd love to see it. Thanks! :-)

Keck's Exclusives First Look: Desperate Housewives' James Denton Lives Again!

James Denton is proving there's life after death on Wisteria Lane. Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry has invited James, along with a handful of other actors who took their deaths gracefully (ahem), to appear in the May 13 series ender.

"I'm pretty stoked," says the former Mike Delfino. "A lot of great actors will be on that street — Steven Culp [Rex], Roger Bart [George], Richard Burgi [Karl], among others. If you gotta be dead, that's pretty good company." Add Lupe Ontiveros [Mama Solis] to the list, plus at least one more victim who will die in the finale, Marc says. [...]

'Desperate Housewives' James Denton returning for final episode

[...]

The actor, whose character Mike Delfino was killed off earlier in the current season, confirmed that he will appear in the May 13 finale.

Mike will be seen with a number of other deceased Housewives characters, including Mama Solis (Lupe Ontiveros) and a Wisteria Lane favourite who will die in the episode.

"I'm pretty stoked," Denton told TV Guide. "A lot of great actors will be on that street - Steven Culp (Rex Van De Kamp), Roger Bart (George Williams), Richard Burgi (Karl Mayer), among others. If you gotta be dead, that's pretty good company." [...]



(afterelton.com, Apr 23, 2012, by Lyle Masaki)

Desperate Housewives has signed up a few more dead characters to return for the series finale, including Steven Culp, Roger Bart, Richard Burgi and (making me very happy) Lupe Ontiveros.

The Dead Invade 'Desperate Housewives' Series Finale

The dead are returning to Wisteria Lane. According to TV Guide Magazine, James Denton and a mix of other guest stars whose characters have kicked the bucket are returning to "Desperate Housewives" for the series finale.

Denton's Mike was shot and killed off earlier in Season 8 -- not before having his death spoiled at former "Desperate Housewives" star Nicolette Sheridan's court hearing -- but he'll be back, along with a lot of familiar, yet dead, faces. Joining the walking "Desperate" dead are Steven Culp, Roger Bart, Richard Burgi and Lupe Ontiveros. More guest stars have yet to be revealed.

James Denton returning to 'Desperate Housewives' for series finale

Get ready for a ghost from the past to turn up during the series finale of "Desperate Housewives" later this month. According to TV Guide, James Denton is going to be reprising his role as Mike for the episode, despite the character being killed off by the mob during the February sweeps earlier this year.

Delton also says that there are going to be a plethora of other actors who will be turning up on the show in some form or another, including Steven Culp, Roger Bart, and Richard Burgi. We've already heard that Dana Delaney will also be reprising her role from the past during the show's final episode, and in doing so is crossing over from her new show in "Body of Proof."

The hope here is that the "Housewives" finale is going to serve as a fitting tribute to all of the past seasons of the hit show, and include plenty of past references for longtime fans to go along with carrying on the present story.

The series finale of the ABC drama is set to air on Sunday, May 13.

Steven returns to "Desperate Housewives" for a flashback-filled episode in March


(TV Guide online, Feb 19, 2012, by William Keck)

Keck's Exclusives: Desperate's Walking Dead

Life-changing events on "Desperate Housewives" this March inspire one last flashback-filled episode before the series finale in May. This time, look for reappearances from Steven Culp as Bree's dead husband, Rex Van De Kamp, and Rob star Lupe Ontiveros as Carlos' late mama, Juanita Solis — you remember, the one who got plowed down by Bree's son Andrew.



(Examiner online, Feb 20, 2012, by Matt Carter)

'Desperate Housewives' spoilers: two ghosts from the past return

Before the series finale of "Desperate Housewives" is set to air on ABC this May, some of the residents of Wisteria Lane are going to be forced to deal with a good many demons from their past -- and as an audience, we are going to see some faces that we haven't had the opportunity to hear from in quite some time.

According to TV Guide, Steven Culp is set to return for an episode in March as Bree's dead husband Rex -- meanwhile, we will also see the return of Lupe Ontiveros as Carlos' dead mother. As for whether these two will show up in the form of flashbacks, we assume so -- it's either that or they are imagined by some of the other characters.

With this being the final collection of episodes, we are likely going to see even more familiar faces turn up on Wisteria Lane by the time the show comes to a close.


(* Feb 21, 2012 - edited to add: celebrityinterviews.info, by Edward De Ritter)


Actor Steven Culp is returning to ABC drama Desperate Housewives.

TV Guide Magazine report that Culp, an original cast member on the ABC drama, will return in a forthcoming episode. The actor played Rex Van De Kamp, husband of Bree (Marcia Cross) in the first series but was killed off. The actor has returned to Desperate Housewives since his departure for flashbacks – his return this time around will be under similar circumstances.

Steven Culp to appear on "Desperate Housewives"

The ABC drama "Desperate Housewives" has a lot of its cast members returning to the show in the upcoming episodes.

Reports say that actor Steven Culp, who was a part of the original cast of "Desperate Housewives" but was killed off, will return to the show very shortly. Culp was seen as Rex Van De Kamp, the husband of Bree. The latter was played by Marcia Cross. The actor had made several subsequent returns to the ABC drama in the flashback sequences, even after his 'departure'. The present one in question would also be in one such situation.

Next in line is Lupe Ontiveros. She will be seen once again as Carlos' mother Juanita. Her character too died when Bree's son Andrew knocked her down. Hence it can be presumed that she too will be seen in flashback sequences. Shawn who plays the role of Andrew will also be coming back to the show.

Many other old faces will be seen once again before the show reaches is end. The list includes Dana Delany, Andrea Bowen and Kyle MacLachlan playing Kathryn Mayfair, Susan Mayer's (Teri Hatcher) daughter and Orson Hodge, Bree's second husband respectively.



I was hoping he would appear there again and now he does! Yeah! :-D

Feb 13, 2012 Another small update regarding the appearance of Steven on "Body of Proof":

As soon as I have information when the episode with Steven will air, I'll let you know.

Feb 12, 2012 News from Mr. Steven Culp himself:
(Thank you, thank you, Steven!)

Last Friday I received a letter from Steven. He expressed his condolences to Kim's death and asked me to extend his sincere sympathy to her family and friends. Furthermore he said he was sorry that he did not inform me and his fans about his appearances on "Prime Suspect" and "Harry's Law".

"I will try to be more informative. I realize it is a disservice to you and the fans when I do something and don't tell you about it. So I will make an effort to get the news out there, when there is news." - Thank you, Steven, thank you!!!

He is also working on something right now, but he is not sure whether he is permitted to speak of it - at the moment. - I wonder what that will be. Hmmm... I hope we will find out soon! :-)

Jan 30, 2012 Just a small update regarding the appearance of Steven on "Body of Proof":

According to the recently published press release for the episode 2.14 (airing Feb 14, 2012), Steven won't appear in that episode either. I guess he will appear in 2.15 that will air on Feb 21, 2012 but so far the press release for that episode has not been published yet.

As soon as I have information when the episode with him will air, I'll let you know.

Jan 19, 2012 Unfortunately it happened again:

Steven Culp was on last night's episode "New Kidney on the Block" of the NBC series "Harry's Law".

I'm sorry I could not post the information before the episode aired, but, unfortunately, I did not know about it. The sites I've kept checking did not provide any information of Steven being on that episode. I'm sorry for those in the US who missed the episode, but there is nothing I could do to have information about his appearance prior the airing.

I'll release some video clips of his appearances on "Harry's Law" on Monday. Captures can be found here.

Jan 10, 2012
According to the Creation Entertainment website, Steven Culp will appear at the Official Star Trek convention:

Jan 9, 2012 The episode of "Body of Proof" with Steven Culp was postponed to a later date as Steven is not mentioned in the press release for episode 2.13, as previously named he would be in (see news dated Dec 6, 2011)

As soon as I have information when the episode with him will air, I'll let you know.

2011

Steven Culp confirmed that in 2011 he filmed a series of commercials for AT&T. They have been shown in select markets on the East Coast and the Midwest. If one of them is aired in your area, it would be greatly appreciated if you could record it and forward a copy.

Dec 29, 2011 Last October Steven Culp filmed another short movie, a science fiction drama called "Dark Matters."

DARK MATTERS is a fictional short film project based on the eponymous play by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Ricardo Uhagon Vivas. The story is about an only child that believes in otherworldly beings and the relationship with his parents.

More information about the movie, trailer and trailer captures of Steven you can find here.

Dec 6, 2011 Dana Delany posted on her Twitter account, that she is filming an episode of "Body of Proof" with Steven:

"Look who's back from the dead?"
"Do you think @ReallyMarcia will mind? #BodyofProof has him now!"
"What epi?" #BodyofProof 213 written by our creator@cmurphey7"

Steven will appear in episode # 2.13. Today airs episode # 2.10 so I think the episode with Steven will air next year.

Below you find two pictures of Steven and Dana (posted by Dana Delany) on the set of "Body of Proof":



As soon as I have more information, I'll let you know.

What a nice way to start a year! :-)

I'm sorry I could not post the information before the episode aired, but, unfortunately, I did not know about it. It was only a coincidence I found the information because the sites I usually check did not provide any information of Steven being on that episode.

I know it's not the same, but US residence can watch the episode online at Hulu.com and NBC.com until 12/02/2011 and on iTunes.

Marcia Cross has said that the news about the end of Desperate Housewives felt "bittersweet".

Cross, who plays Bree Van De Kamp on the ABC show, was informed that its upcoming eighth season will be the last by her manager, reports Deadline.

"I think Marc [Cherry, show creator] is right; this is the time; this is the moment," she said.

When asked what she wants for her character in the show's finale, Cross claimed that she would love all Bree's former love interests to return.

"I want to see my fellows again. I had the best male co-stars; I want to see them back," she added.

Cross's male co-stars have included Steven Culp (Rex Van De Kamp), Kyle MacLachlan (Orson Hodge) and Brian Austin Green (Keith Watson).

Housewives creator Marc Cherry confirmed the show's ending during a talk at the TCA Summer Press Tour on Sunday. He described the series as "iconic" and claimed that he wants the eighth season to be a "victory lap".

The eighth and final season of Desperate Housewives premieres on September 25 on ABC.

Marcia Cross: Bring Back My "Desperate Housewives" Men

With "Desperate Housewives" now set to conclude at the end of its eighth season, Cross says she'd like her appearances-above-all-else character Bree Van De Kamp Hodge to get one more night with the many men she's wedded and bedded before the show ends.

"I do want to see all my fellas again. I have had the best male costars and I want them all back, dead or alive. Even if it's just a fantasy dream sequence, I really want to see them. There's just so many of them: from Steven Culp to Kyle Maclachlan to Brian Austin Green to Roger Bart – I've had a lot of fellas!" she tells Popcorn Biz.

Jul 11, 2011 L.A. Theatre Works announced that Steven's latest radio play "Death of a Salesman" will be released on CD on August 15, 2011.

The CDs can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Amazon.ca, and Amazon.fr.

In the Shakespeare Theatre Company program to "Old Times" are some of Steven Culp's guest appearances listed. Among them stands out one appearance that has not been known yet: "Law & Order: Los Angeles" and, as far as I know, has not been aired yet.

There is no more information available at this point ... but will be posted as soon as the information becomes available.


(* June 5, 2011 - edited to add: further information from Mr. Steven Culp himself - Steven, thank you for answering my questions!)

According to Steven, he indeed filmed the "Law & Order: Los Angeles" episode that is mentioned in the "Old Times" program. However, he mainly filmed scenes with a certain character (he mentioned the name of the actor but I don't remember), but since the show is now been cancelled they change the order of the last episodes and they already aired an episode where that character is dead and thus skipped his episode. He thinks that his episode will never air or maybe on a syndicated channel.


(** June 7, 2011 - edited to add)

The episode "Carthay's Circle" of "Law & Order: Los Angeles" that aired yesterday evening was with Steven. They seem to be airing the last few episodes that were filmed, just to get them done. (Thanks for the information, Sara!!!)

His role name was Ben Corrigan.


For those of you in the US, you can watch the episode on the NBC website (available until: July 12, 2011).


On the right side, just a preview captures. More will be posted tonight (east coast time).

Feb 26, 2011 News from Mr. Steven Culp himself:
(Thank you, Steven!)

Steven mentioned at the Vulcan Events Sci-Fi convention in Tampa that he actually filmed two episodes of the new Fox series "Chicago Code," formerly titled "Ride-Along" last August. Just when he was home again they wanted him to come back to film a second episode.

The reason that the episodes have not aired yet as they were supposed to be the second and third episodes, is that with the change of the title they also changed the order of the episodes.

That means that there is still hope we can see Steven in those two episodes very soon. :-)

In the show he is the Deputy Mayor of Chicago.

Jan 15, 2011 At L.A. Theatre Works website Steven's radio play "Dr. Cerberus" is now available to listen to.

"Ride-Along" will be premiering in January 2011, airing Mondays at 9:00 pm ET/PT on FOX.

Production Companies: 20th Century Fox Television, MiddKid Productions
Creator / Writer Shawn Ryan
Producer: Shawn Ryan
Excecutive Producers: Shawn Ryan, Charles McDougall
Filming Locations: Chicago, Illinois, USA

Synopsis:

The city of Chicago is a paradox that serves as the setting for RIDE-ALONG, a new drama from Shawn Ryan ("The Shield," "The Unit"). During a ride-along, a civilian spends a shift in the passenger seat of a squad car, observing the work day of a police officer. But in this series, the audience is the passenger, taking an unpredictable ride through the streets of Chicago and navigating crime and corruption with the most respected - and notorious - cops in the city.

Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) is a local legend and larger-than-life veteran of the Chicago Police Department. Like the city of Chicago, Jarek is razor blades and brass knuckles wrapped in politeness and ego-less charm - a man who throws away partners the way others throw away tissues.

Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) arrived at the pinnacle of the Chicago Police Department in a short period of time. She's determined to implement changes before the mud that is Chicago politics clogs her office. As a result of Teresa's difficult choices, she has made some powerful enemies along the way, including two street gangs, the police officers' union and a city alderman (Delroy Lindo) who proves to be a dangerous adversary.

Jarek's new partner, Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria), is a smart and observant young detective who desperately wants to prove himself. He is savvier and more observant than most people give him credit for, and just might make the perfect yin to Jarek's yang. Also in Jarek's charge is his niece, Vonda Wysocki (Devin Kelley), a rookie beat cop whose father, Jarek's brother, was killed in the line of duty when she was young. Jarek keeps close tabs on her and is less than thrilled to discover she's falling for her partner, Isaac Joiner, a charismatic cop who takes unnecessary risks on the job that land him and Vonda in some dangerous situations.

Alderman Ronin Gibbons is a building-magnate-turned-politician who has ruled his ward with a velvet glove for three decades. Jarek and Teresa are convinced Gibbons and his cohorts, including Liam Hennessey (Billy Lush), an Irish tough guy in Gibbons' construction empire, are dirty to the core, but they've never had the evidence to prove it. When a murder investigation leads them to Gibbons, they are determined to bring him to justice and clean up Chicago - if that's even possible.

RIDE-ALONG is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and MiddKid Productions. The series is written and executive-produced by Shawn Ryan. Charles McDougall ("Big Love," "The Tudors") also serves as executive producer and directed the pilot episode.

Aug 11, 2010 * Steven mentioned at the Las Vegas Star Trek convention last Sunday that he would be filming an appearance on the new Fox series "Ride-Along" next week.

That "next week" that is now, so currently he is in Chicago filming that episode. (According to the official Ride-Along Facebook fan page, run by an actress of the show, the 2nd episode is currently being filmed. - You can take a look, even if you don't have a Facebook account.)

If I understood it right, Steven will have more than one appearance on the series. It was kind of loud in that room and I hardly could understand what he said, so in case he appears "only" once, don't shoot me. (In case anyone was there and understood something else, please let me know.)

Just an update on the Friday the 13th convention:

According to the Friday the 13th message board, the administrator of the event plans a mini event of the CAMP BLOOD: FRIDAY THE 30TH, official horror convention, on the days the convention was originally scheduled for those fans who could not exchange or cancel their flight tickets and go to Texas that weekend.

The administrator plans on having several celebrities during that weekend attending the event. If Steven is part of it, is not known yet. The administrator publishes the names of the celebrities shortly before the event.

As Steven is still in Chicago, he will not attend the mini event. Kane Hodder and Ari Lehman will be there.

(craveonline.com, by Blair Marnell, Jun 07, 2010)

Matt Nix On 'Burn Notice'

The 'Burn Notice' creator tells us what's in store for the fourth season in this special extended interview

Q: Can you talk about some of the guest stars that we will see this season?

Matt Nix: Sure. In the third episode, the episode that Jeffrey Donovan [is making] his directing debut, we have Max Perlich is playing the client, and Nestor Serrano is our bad guy. We have Navi Rawat coming in for a serialized arc. Frank Whaley plays a client, does a great job. Benito Martinez from "The Shield" is in our fifth episode, along with Rhys Coiro, who was on "Entourage." There's been a lot of press about Burt Reynolds coming in. He does a great job and is really fun, playing an older, burned out spy. Richard Kind is also in that episode. He was one of those that people are calling me from the set saying, "We must write Richard Kind into more episodes; he's so fantastic." So, he's pretty great. Steven Culp. Yes, we got a lot of fun people coming up. Actually, I should say, just for "Wire" fans, John Doman is also coming up as well.

"Burn Notice" airs on USA every Thursday at 9pm ET/PT.

Jun 10, 2010 * Steven will be on Celebrity Liar on June 15, 2010 at 7:30 pm PST

Celebrity Liar is a game show where two celebrities tell the same story as if it happened to each of them. In truth, it only happened to one of them, and the chat room decides... Who's the Liar?

It can only be watched on the internet at The Room Live.


From their website:

Next week, it'll be an "ex-JAG-aganza" when Patrick Labyorteaux (from JAG, Heathers, Little House on the Prairie) faces off against Steven Culp (from JAG, West Wing, Thirteen Days, Desperate Housewives) on the best most interactive live game show on the internet! - 6/15 7:30pm PST in The Room Live



Celebrity Liar is a hidden gem amongst web-based game shows. The premise is simple: two celebrities tell the same story as if it happened to them. The audience then gets to choose which star they believe is lying. If the audience correctly chooses the liar, the star who was telling the truth gets a point. If the audience votes the other way, the liar gets two points. Viewers can participate live via the chat room.

The stars of the show, of course, are the celebrities who appear to tell their stories. The celebs really get into the game, and their banter between stories makes the show even more enjoyable.

The only prize that is given out is a Mega Millions lottery ticket, and each celebrity mentions a favorite charity that they plan to donate "an undisclosed" portion of their winnings to, should they hit the jackpot.

Celebrity Liar is the real deal - it's not some quirky little game that looks like it was filmed in someone's basement. You'll be entertained and engaged, so make sure you have a little extra time on your hands, because you'll end up telling yourself, "OK, just one more episode..."

"The real deal!  A hidden gem!" -- About.com

"I had a chance to visit a live broadcast of Celebrity Liar, with Reid Scott and Jamie Kaler, stars of TBS' My Boys, trying to poker bluff host Andrew Hill Newman with some outrageous childhood stories. The crazy part being that one of them was actually telling the truth." --TubeFilterNews (Marc Hustvedt, Editor-in-Chief of Tubefilter and Executive Producer of the Streamy Awards)

"A simple premise that promises laughter, creativity, and interactivity each week.  The best part is that you never know who is going to show up. Each guest brings their own energy and personality to the room, so it plays like live theatre." -- Red Carpet Closet

"It's apparent how much he (Andrew Hill Newman) enjoys what he's doing as he not only gets the most out of his guests as they tell their stories but he remembers the LIVE audience watching and brings them in as well… and not like TV – this audience has a voice and he's listening… so are the celebrity guests!" -- MingleMediaTV

May 14, 2010 (entertainmentweekly.com)

The network TBS decided not to pick up the series "Uncle Nigel."

Steven had announced recently [Mar 30, 2010] that he had finished filming a guest-starring part for the pilot episode.

"TBS announced today that it has ordered eight episodes of "Glory Daze" [...] TBS developed four dramedy pilots for its 2010 prime time slate but just relinquished one to sister drama net, TNT: Franklin and Bash [...]. The network passed on the other two – "Uncle Nigel," a Gary Cole starrer about a Philly ­police detective and "In Security" [...]"

Mar 30, 2010 News from Steven Culp himself:
(Thank you, Steven!)

Steven has finished guest-starring the pilot of the new TBS series "Uncle Nigel."

The network still needs to pick up the series.

Steven words: "I've just finished guest-starring in a new pilot for the TBS network. It's called "Uncle Nigel," and stars Gary Cole, with whom I've worked on several occasions. He's a terrific actor. It's created and produced by the same people who did "Monk," and is the same comic mystery vein. I don't know when it will air. The network has to pick up the pilot first."


There is no online information about Steven guest-starring in the pilot yet, but it will be posted as it becomes available. In the meantime read some information about "Uncle Nigel."


(hollywoodreporter.com - Feb 3, 2010)

Gary Cole has been tapped as the lead in "Uncle Nigel," TBS' first hourlong comedy pilot. The casting lifts the contingency off the project, written and executive produced by "Monk" creator Andy Breckman. "Nigel" centers on Nigel Wells (Cole), a veteran Philadelphia homicide detective who takes on his inexperienced, incompetent nephew as a partner.

"Nigel" is one of two hourlong cast-contingent pilots TBS ordered last month as part of the comedy-centered network's new programming strategy to expand its core lineup of half-hour sitcoms to include animated and hourlong series.


(nicegirlstv.com - Feb 27, 2010)

Charles Dutton, Lea Thompson and Jeff Davis are joining the TBS drama pilot "Uncle Nigel," which stars Gary Cole in the lead role of a veteran Philadelphia homicide detective who takes on his inexperienced, incompetent nephew Ronnie (Matt Jones) as a partner.


(pajiba.com - Feb 22, 2010)

It's about "Nigel Wells (Gary Cole), a veteran Philadelphia homicide detective who takes on his inexperienced, incompetent nephew Ronnie as a partner." Thompson will play Nigel's sister, and Dutton will play an ambitious deputy of cops.

Dec 4, 2009 The official website of the short movie "Refresh" was updated. It includes now a trailer, promotion pictures and behind the scene pictures.

Longer synopsis:

Roger Dean, a successful businessman, has been chronically unhappy for years. Over time, he has attempted a wide range of remedies, some prescribed, some not; some orthodox, some radical, but none have worked for him. At the end of his rope, he approaches PDLAS, a mysterious private company that promises an effective -but irrevocable- solution. He is assured that the company has a 100% success rate, and that he will 'emerge completely refreshed.' What ultimately happens to Roger is of course much, much more than he bargained for.

Oct 25, 2009 According to IMDB, Steven completed another movie, the short movie "Refresh."

Steven plays Roger Dean.


Written by: David Orr

Genre: Short / Sci-Fi / Thriller

Runtime: 14 min (!!!)


Synopsis: A wealthy but chronically depressed businessman at the end of his rope hires a mysterious company who provide an effective - but irrevocable - solution.


From the official website:

"Refresh, starring Steven Culp (13 Days, West Wing, Desperate Housewives) and Scott Michael Campbell (Brokeback Mountain, 24), is to be released in early 2010"

Oct 10, 2009 Steven wrapped up filming the movie "The Chicago 8". The movie is now in post-production.

Oct 7, 2009 * Steven will appear on the episode "Bad Seed" of the TV series "CSI: Miami" on Monday, October 19, 2009 at 10:00 pm ET/PT on CBS.

He will play Jerry Mackey.

Written by: Brian Davidson
Directed by: Matt Earl Beesley


(TV Guide.com)

Synopsis: A lethal outbreak in Miami that is linked to deadly farming practices is investigated as murder.


Plotline and Casting Call:

[JERRY] 45 to 50 years old, the CEO of Baxter Organic Foods, he's a Wall Streeter with an open collar (dressed Miami corporate-casual). Suspected of having guilty knowledge of the spread of the E. Coli virus, Jerry lets his attorney do the talking for him, and appears to be smirkingly convinced that he's above the law -- or that he's covered his tracks really well. Later, when Horatio promises not to press charges, Jerry leans back and spills his guts, revealing that the financial advantages of genetically modified corn outweigh the potential liability of the occasional untraceable outbreak of botulism. Jerry's corporate commitment to "clean, organic" food is just a story he feeds to chumps; he's only interested in profits. A man with his eye on the bottom line, he's just hateful enough to realize his arguments won't charm a jury in civil court ...


(* Oct 20, 2009 - edited to add: bscreview.com, thoughts of the scenes Steven's character was involved with, by Scott Parker)

We also are treated to a mini-treatise on modern agriculture courtesy of Warren and, later, the CEO, played by Steven Culp. Mr. Culp must get a lot of casting calls to play a-hole hotshots, because he brings his A Game to this episode. The little snide chuckle as he leaves the station the first time is nicely swallowed at the end, when Horatio pulls out the tape recorder, revealing their entire conversation about "acceptable losses of human life" is okay if it feeds hundreds. Culp's CEO makes the case for modern agriculture: food prices would skyrocket, people would starve, and the most fundamental of all, people don't care where their food comes from. All valid points, to be sure, but he's still an arrogant ass about it.

Apr 17, 2009 Excerpt from an interview with David James Elliott at TV Guide online:

TVGuide.com: It seemed pretty intricate. Were you ever nervous you'd get hurt? [talking about the sword-fight in his new movie Knights of Bloodsteel]

Elliott: Well it's choreographed, so hopefully it comes off like a dance. ... The swords were made of steel and they were sharp. I had one glance off my eyebrow — ripped through my eyebrow and just missed taking my eye out. So I had one mishap, but it's pretty amazing that with all the fights we had, that was the only disaster. Usually in fistfights you get punched in the face. I remember on JAG, Joe Jackson punched Steven Culp and shattered his nose. You know, we were going into our 18th hour of shooting, and they had a sequence where he had to pretend to punch him in the face, and he landed it and they had to take him away in an ambulance.

Während die ganze Welt den größten Meteoritenschauer der letzten 10.000 Jahre beobachtet, kollidiert ein riesiger Asteroid, verdeckt durch das Meteoritenfeld, mit dem Mond und löst eine gewaltige Gesteins- und Trümmerexplosion aus. Fragmente vom Asteroiden und sogar vom Mond selbst durchbrechen die Erdatmosphäre und schlagen ein. Obwohl der anfängliche Schaden minimal ist, liegen die Nerven auf der ganzen Welt blank. Die Mondoberfläche weist erhebliche Schäden auf, doch Experten kommen schnell zu dem Schluss, dass es keine bleibenden Konsequenzen haben wird. Dann jedoch treten plötzlich eigenartige Anomalien auf der Erde auf.

Es beginnt mit Kleinigkeiten - Telefonsignale werden gestört, ungewöhnliche elektrostatische Aufladungen und seltsame Meeresbewegungen werden beobachtet. Führende Wissenschaftler weltweit, unter ihnen Alex Kinter aus Kanada, Maddie Rhodes aus den USA und Roland Emerson aus Deutschland, stoßen Stück für Stück auf Indizien, die darauf hindeuten, dass die Charakteristik des Mondes und seine Umlaufbahn verändert wurden. Ihre Befürchtungen bestätigen sich, da die Anomalien immer häufiger auftreten, bis zu dem Punkt, an dem die bestehende Schwerkraft durch die ansteigenden elektromagnetischen Impulse des Mondes stark beeinträchtigt wird. Menschen, Autos und andere Objekte in unterschiedlichen Regionen fangen scheinbar willkürlich an zu schweben. Alex, Maddie, Roland und der Rest ihres Teams entdecken bald etwas weitaus Schlimmeres - die neue Umlaufbahn bringt den Mond auf Kollisionskurs mit der Erde!

Meanwhile, Laurel gives Marco the money to start his own restaurant, but he realizes that isn't what he really wants. Finally, Megan meets Wills parents, Elliot (Steven Culp, Desperate Housewives) and Josephine (Mary Page Keller, Commander in Chief), and feels guilty for involving Will with her own dysfunctional family, but Will surprises Megan with a declaration of his true feelings for her.

Steven Culp, who we just saw reprising his role of Rex Van De Kamp on Desperate Housewives, guest stars as Will's dad on Privileged (Tuesday, CW, 9 p.m.). It's not the smartest scheduling move to air a new episode opposite both American Idol and the Inauguration but it's a new episode so we should all try to watch.


(* Jan 20, 2009 - edited to add: dailypress.com)

9 p.m. CW "Privileged" Rex Van De Kamp, how we've missed you. "Desperate Housewives" alumnus Steven Culp guest stars in this new episode as Will's (Brian Hallisay) father. Meeting Will's dad and mom (Mary Page Keller) is a welcome distraction for Megan (JoAnna Garcia) from her own family issues, including another disappearance by her mother.


(** Jan 22, 2009 - edited to add)

Seriously, how good is this show? Just the scene when Megan meets Will's father (Steven Culp! For the 2nd time this week!) and assumes he's the butler before being properly introduced was a simple moment but hilariously done.

[...]

It was great to see Steven Culp as Will's dad, and his mom is a familiar actress too.


Jan 8, 2009 Steven's movie "From Within" will be released on DVD in March.

Episode 5.13 - The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened - Press Release

THE WOMEN REFLECT ON HOW ONE MAN TOUCHED THEIR LIVES

"The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened" - The ladies are given pause by the loss of one man's life on the 100th episode of ABC's "Desperate Housewives," SUNDAY, JANUARY 18 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET).

When neighborhood handyman, Eli Scruggs (Beau Bridges), passes away, the residents of Wisteria Lane come to realize just how much he affected their lives. Gaby recalls how Eli helped her make new friends when she moved in; Lynette remembers how he came to her aide when she was overwhelmed and neglected Penny; Susan reflects on how he was always there for her as a shoulder to cry on each time a man walked out of her life; Edie looks back on their special friendship; and Bree thinks fondly of how a small gesture he once made helped get her to where she is today.

Guest Cast:
Steven Culp and Rex Van De Kamp
Beau Bridges as Eli Scruggs
Christine Estabrook as Martha Huber


(* Jan 6, 2009 - edited to add: picture with Steven but "only" from behind)


(**Jan 20, 2009 - edited to add: tapeworthy.com)

For the 100th episode, they sure spent a lot of time on Beau Bridges (as Eli Scruggs) who magically appears in last week's episode but seems to have been connected to all the women of Wisteria Lane for years. How convenient.

But I'll let it go for celebratory's sake and the fact that it was all an excuse to flashback to the earlier years when Rex Van De Kamp was still alive! (Yay Steven Culp, Oh how I miss you), when Gaby just moved from the runway to Wisteria Lane, when Edie was still just a slut on the block, when Bree wasn't a company, and when Lynette looked harried (well. some things don't really change...). It was fun looking back at it all but it lacked an overwhelming punch that a big show like this could/should have.

[...]

Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), the quintessential Martha Stewart-esque housewife, presents a calm and collected exterior, but is dealing with the pain of losing her husband, Rex (Steven Culp), the challenge of raising two rebellious children.

Dec 13, 2008 (The Victoria Times Colonist.com)

According to an article by Michael D. Reid in the Victoria, BC Times Colonist, about Rod Hardy Victoria's film commissioner, "Impact" was picked up to air in the USA in 2009!

"... the last project filmed here -- the sci-fi series Impact -- has been picked up by ABC-TV for broadcast next year."

Dec 8, 2008 Unconfirmed sources report that Steven's mini-series "Impact" is postponed until next year due to the fact that they have not found a distributor for the USA yet. They say that it will air in the USA in spring 2009.

Dec 5, 2008 (TV Guide.com) 100th episode of "Desperate Housewives" with Steven

The 100th episode will air 1/18. Beau Bridges plays the neighborhood's longtime handyman Eli, who is found dead on Susan's roof. Each woman will have a flashback to a "pivotal" time in her life when Eli was there. We'll learn he had a connection to the day of Mary Alice's suicide. Rex, Martha, and Mary Alice will appear.

A side has just been released for 5.13 for a "30ish, hot Latin" guy named Oberto or Imberto who was married to one of the women 12 years ago. 12 years ago, Susan was married to Karl (it doesn't sound like her anyway), Bree was married to Rex (it doesn't sound like her anyway), Kat was married to Adam, and Lynette was married to Tom (it doesn't sound like her anyway). Gaby and Carlos were first married 10 years ago, and I don't think they would recast Carlos just to rehash Gablos' theme in S1 (in the side, she wants sex, he'd rather go to the gym). It would be pointless, and besides, Ricardo IS in his thirties. Even if they're revealing that Gaby was married to someone before Carlos, it's still pointless rehash that we've already seen and she's moved so far away from. That leaves Edie, who we know has been married multiple times, and could've been divorced just before the show began. I think it's her.

Dec 4, 2008 Steven is back on "Desperate Housewives" for the 100th episode

Guest stars: Kelly Lynch ("The L Word"), Steven Culp ("Desperate Housewives"), Patrick Fabian ("Veronica Mars") and Rooney Mara ("Women's Murder Club".)


(June 16, 2009 - edited to add: Review)

Steven Culp and Kelly Lynch guest starred in The Cleaner: Rebecca. This was another solid episode with a lot of drama to it which I enjoyed watching. Both Culp and Lynch are excellent performers and they bring a lot to the table. Lynch is especially riveting here as a the mother of a brilliant pianist who wants the absolute best for her daughter. She plays the piano, too, and always wanted the greatness that her daughter possesses. This actually puts her at odds with her daughter because the daughter doesn't want to be a performing pianist. This is way the daughter ends up an addict. Her dreams and desires are being ignored because of her musical talents.

Culp and Lynch make this show with their acting talents.

May 28, 2008 According to a blog entry, it looks like as if Steven will be "only" in the pilot of the new series "The Mentalist" :(

These are my first impressions of the network pilots, usually based on unfinished or partially finished screeners. Many of the pilots will undergo reworking, recasting and, in some cases, top-to-bottom reshooting or reconceptualization. Many of the complains I have about the pilots are things that the networks already know, details that are already undergoing alterations. But anyway, here are my first impressions of "The Mentalist":

[...]

Baker is perfectly cast here, since he's got very expressive eyes and the point of the whole show is that his character keeps noticing things and the camera keeps cutting back to him squinting and processing data. I've never seen more insert shots in my life, because for this guy, life is just cluttered with clues. The show's main cast -- featuring Robin Tunney, Owain Yeoman, Tim Kang and a miscast Amanda Righetti -- is strong and the guest cast is outrageously guest star laden. If you blow out Steven Culp, Gail O'Grady, Jeffrey Nordling, Zeljko Ivanek and Tim Guinee in a single episode, how can you hope to make it through three or four seasons?!?!?

It's been a while since CBS effectively launched a show with tonal variation and "The Mentalist" suffers from being far too serious for its own good.

May 24, 2008 According to IMDB Steven will be part of the new series "The Mentalist" that premieres this fall, on September 23, 2008 at 9pm ET/PT on CBS.

Studio: Warner bros. TV

Filming Locations: Glendale, California, USA

Producers: Bruno Heller ("Rome"), David Nutter ("Band of Brothers")

Synopsis: A mentalist (Simon Baker) turns private investigator uses his powers of observation to aid police investigations.

"Leaving Barstow," Drama. 89 min.

On the precipice of adulthood, high school senior Andrew faces the decisions of an 18-year-old — choosing a college, finding love, leaving his family — with a sometimes stable, sometimes not, support system.

Andrew, the main character, plays opposite his mother, Sandra — a once young mother now in a sad rut. When the film begins, it shows a need to escape, and follows a period of loneliness experienced in different ways by most of the people in Andrew's life. Andrew is able to keep his head above water and, in that way, keeps the story from getting too down also.

This is an indie movie to the height of perfection, which nudged me to ponder — what is the difference between mainstream and independent films?

I suppose it comes down to the fact that sponsors affect a film, and indie movies steer clear of that. Watching "Leaving Barstow," there was a real story, not just manipulated situations. It was viewing art.

Support Steven Culp '78 in Harold Pinter's "Old Times" at Lansburgh Theatre

Beginning Tuesday, May 17, 2011

One Past, Three Versions.
Which is Truth?

How reliable are our memories? Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter's haunting play, Old Times, poses this question. An old friend visits a married couple, and their different memories of the past collide. What do their memories tell us and which interpretation of the past do we believe? Old Times is an intimate and highly-charged exploration of whether we can ever really know another person, or even ourselves.

Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs Old Times, which is the first Pinter production to grace STC's stage. This modern classic also marks the STC debuts of multiple Helen Hayes Awards winner Holly Twyford (The Little Dog Laughed; Lost in Yonkers), Steven Culp, W&M '78 (Circle in the Square; "Desperate Housewives") and Tracy Lynn Middendorf ("Lost"; "24").

Feb 8, 2008 Steven and other members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) were seen on the WGA picket line supporting the writers in their strike.

(Inrich.com, by Cynthia McMullen)

Picket line's a pain, but it's not without its perks

Hopewell native Kathy Easterling -- the Richmond area's "Jeopardy!" connection -- reports from the CBS picket line in Los Angeles.

Easterling hasn't forgotten her roots. She e-mailed her mother, Cholly Easterling, to let her know that a Hopewell question was scheduled last week to appear in the Hail to the Chief category.

"We taped this particular show before the strike," she wrote.

Easterling's mother says her daughter, a writer with the popular syndicated game show, has been on strike with the Writers Guild of America, West, since early November.

"This has been one of the defining moments of my life," Easterling said by phone from Los Angeles on Monday [Feb 4th]. "We're all going to be proud, for the rest of our lives, that we stood up for what we believed in and refused to be intimidated by these gigantic studios."

In the meantime, she has met some interesting people on the picket line, including Valerie Harper ("Rhoda"), Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men"), Bill Nye the Science Guy and fellow Virginians Earl Hamner Jr. ("The Waltons"), and Steven Culp ("Desperate Housewives").

Allison completely loses her hearing when a wealthy, young deaf girl is kidnapped, so Joe (Jake Weber) steps in to assist with her and investigator Cynthia Keener's (Anjelica Huston) actions on behalf of the parents (guest stars Nancy Travis and Steven Culp).


(Feb 19, 2008 - edited to add, Entertainment Weekly online, by Alynda Wheat)

Rex Van De Kamp (Steven Culp) is always gonna be the morally shady dude. He's in that class with Adrian Pasdar, Michael Emerson, and William Fichtner — you don't know that they're the bad guy, but the odds are against them. So no huge surprise that he set up the whole stepdaughter kidnapping, only too eager to trade her blood for the red ink his company is hemorrhaging.

Jan 18, 2008 Excerpt from an interview with Sarah Brown at TV Guide online:

TV Guide.com: I've always said that about The Closer: that sometimes they tip their hand with the caliber of actor they bring on for a guest spot.

Sarah Brown:
Yeah, but Steve Culp played the attorney, and he's brilliant and well-used and one of my favorite actors in the world, and he didn't do the crime. The guy that played my husband, also — a fine, fine actor. You know, that's the best set I have ever worked on in terms of the kindnesses.

2007

Dec 12, 2007 At the beginning of this week, Steven was seen supporting the Writers Guild of America strike in Los Angeles, according to the web blog of Mark Verheiden, writer/co-executive producer of a.o. the TV series Battlestar Galactica:

Tuesday, December 11, 2007: WGA Strike - Days 35, 36, 37:

"I don't know about days 35 and 36 (Monday required my attentions elsewhere), but days 37 was friggin' cold. It was a brr-chilly 45 degrees when we started, much warmed by the time we ended. A tip o' the hat to thespian Steven Culp who joined our line this morning, and to all those who offered friendly honks and waves."

- Even though Mark Verheiden mentioned Tuesday as the day he had seen Steven, another source stated that Steven joined the picket lines at the Paramount gates on Monday, WGA's 'Star Trek' day. - No matter what day he chose to show his support for the writers' strike, his fans think it's great!

Dec 11, 2007 (forums.startreknewvoyages.com)

I joined the picket line around 10:15, meeting up with my friend Garrett Frawley. By 10:30 some recognizable Trek faces started to turn up. By noon the place was in full swing, with over 100 writers, actors, fans, and production people out to support the WGA. Here is a list of some of the Star Trek-related people I recognized as we paced back and forth across the main entrance of Paramount:

Vaughn Armstrong, Scott Bakula, Ira Steven Behr, Chris Black, Andre Bormanis, Steven Culp, Christopher Doohan, Harlan Ellison, Gary Graham, Jennifer Hetrick, Phil Kim, Alan Kobayashi, Walter Koenig, Scott MacDonald, Ralph Miller, Anthony Montgomery, Ronald B. Moore, Ronald D. Moore, Nichelle Nichols, Michael Okuda, Denise Okuda, Michael Reaves, Garfield and Judith Reeves-Stevens, Tim Russ, William Schallert, Natasha Soudek, Brent Spiner, Michael Sussman, George Takei, Bradley Thompson, David Weddle, Robert Hewitt Wolf

Bloggers on the Line Day

Another day on the picket line at Warner Brothers. But today was special in that four WGA writers who normally walk the line at various studios decided to congregate at one studio in the Valley and declared this Bloggers Day, inviting the readers of their blogs to join them on the line today at Warner Brothers.

[...]

Since I'm already functioning on 5 hours sleep a day doing this, I can't picket every single day. So even though I was not planning on walking the line today, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet JOHN AUGUST, JANE ESPENSON, CRAIG MAZIN, and JOSH FRIEDMAN, who invited us to walk and talk with them, as I don't necessarily get to the studios they are picketing.

I only attempted to talk to two of them, as I only can recognize two of the four and I only have time to read the blogs of two of them. So imagine my dismay that after I waited until they were free from talking with other people and I introduced myself, I got a perfunctory and polite hello from them and watched them walk away from me, without even giving me a chance to come up with something interesting to talk about. Now, I don't expect every writer on the line to talk to me, but I did expect better from those who had specifically invited people to come walk and talk with them.

Now, perhaps you are thinking that we are not there to socialize and that is true. It's grim business we are doing. But consider that we are walking back and forth across the same street for three hours straight instead of what we'd be normally doing: writing, watching TV, shopping, petting the cat or dog, even cleaning house. And the only things to keep one from going nuts with boredom are responding to the honking cars and trucks and talking to each other.

Perhaps I would have had better luck trying to talk to the other two of this group, had I had the opportunity to speak with them, but I had a satisfying tour of duty because of other people I did get to talk to - a couple of screenwriters for whom I only know first names, my writer friend MELODY FOX, and actor STEVEN CULP.

[...]

I also spent a lot of time with actor Steven Culp talking as we walked back and forth across the street in front of Warner Brothers gate 2/3. This is a solid actor whose work I've admired ever since I first saw him play Bobby Kennedy in the movie, Thirteen Days. He creates wonderful characters, who are very real and moving. He was my favorite character in JAG, yes even over the two main stars. I liked him in Desperate Housewives, where he played Bree's husband, Rex. But I had just seen him do a tour-de-force guest role on Stargate: Atlantis, where I felt he was able to show more of the breadth of what he can do than in any other role I've seen. He was nuanced and moving as a man so desperate to save his child that he crosses the line into doing things that he knows are illegal and reprehensible and who is later devastated by what he has done and has to atone for. I really felt for his character and that was a hard thing to do considering what the character had done. Steven Culp had done a great job in finding the sympathy in this character.

I had been so taken with his performance that I had told Joseph Mallozzi, showrunner of Stargate Atlantis, in his blog how much I enjoyed Steven Culp's performance in that episode. How neat and serendipitous that only a few days later, I find myself walking the picket line with the actor himself, so I can tell him in person what a fine job he did. I would be honored if someday it works out that he is acting in a script I've written.

Nov 28, 2007 A preview of the "Boston Legal" episode with Steven can be found here. Steven is seen at 0:13 sec.

Nov 19, 2007 (ABC Press Release)

Boston Legal: "Oral Contracts" - Tuesday, December 4, 2007 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Denny Crance is arrested under unusual circumstances and asks Alan Shore to defend him, and Shirley Schmidt takes on the case of a shock Jock fired for making an inappropriate comment on the air, on ABC's "BOSTON LEGAL" -- "Oral Contracts" was written by David E. Kelley and directed by Mike Listo.

Guest starring (a.o.): Steven Culp as A.D.A. Norman Wilson.

(A.D.A. - Assistant District Attorney)


(Dec 4, 2007 - edited to add: Zap2it.com, review of the storyline Steven's character was involved with, by Liz Pardue)

Denny Crane vs. the Wide Stance: Denny, much to his dismay, gets busted in a courtroom bathroom for soliciting gay sex from an undercover officer. Apparently, trying to relieve oneself while constipated and soliciting gay bathroom sex share many of the same signals. Though I didn't notice any waving of fingers under the stall divider, Denny certainly did have a wide stance. At any rate, Denny insists upon fighting it out in court rather than quietly pleading guilty to a lesser charge, putting a lot of pressure on Alan to win the case. (And Paul Lewiston is back for the week! With a beard!) The assistant DA is played by Steven Culp, making me miss Rex on Desperate Housewives all the more. Despite a terrible turn on the stand in his own defense in which his "sleepovers" with Alan are brought up, Denny gets off with Alan's help (I can't even pretend there was no pun intended there). Which is just as well--the irony of his being brought down for gay solicitation after getting off scott free for actually soliciting a prostitute would be too much for even me to bear. And can I just point out that I really, really want the phrase "getting Larry Craig-ed" to make its way into our lexicon?

Oct 11, 2007 (CBS Press Release)

Tuesday, October 30, 2007: 100th episode of "NCIS" - "Chimera"

Synopsis: Gibbs and the team investigate a mysterious death aboard a top-secret naval research ship in the middle of the ocean, only to discover an abandoned ship and a deadly secret that could cost them their lives.

Navy Cmdr. William Skinner: Steven Culp  
Navy Cmdr. William Skinner: Late 40s to early 50s, ruggedly handsome, charming, flirtatious, physically fit and authoritative.


From Harriet on the NCIS-CBS mailing list: "I was told, upon asking, that Steven has a "substantial" role in this episode."


(Oct. 30, 2007 - edited to add: star-telegram.com)

NCIS: The popular, offbeat procedural marks its 100th episode with a story in which the team finds itself in danger while investigating a case on an abandoned ship. Steven Culp (Desperate Housewives, Traveler) is a guest star.

Oct 6, 2007 From an interview with Peter Paige, the director of the movie Leaving Barstow:

Peter: [...] I just directed a movie that I'm cutting right now, it's called "Leaving Barstow.' Michelle Clooney is one of the leads, a kid named Kevin Sheridan who wrote the film stars in it, Steven Culp is in it and Ryan Carnes. It's good stuff. It's very charming and I'm very excited about it.'

Sep 28, 2007 At TV Guide.com David DiGilio (creator of Traveler) made his final entry ("Closure") in his David's Traveler Blog.

Here the most relevant parts:

Hello Porters, fans of Traveler, and any folks who may have randomly found this page. First off, on behalf of the cast, writers, and everyone involved in Traveler, I want to thank all those who fought so hard over the past two months to get our show back on the air. It was inspiring to see your effort and devotion. And you fought valiantly. But, in the end, I think the same thing that doomed our show — lack of publicity — also made it impossible to muster the kind of numbers needed to save it. So, while I will never forget the great — albeit frustrating — experience of Traveler, the time has come for all of us to move on to new season passes, new webpage bookmarks, and new "save the show" campaigns, as I'm sure there will be some deserving series this fall that will get the short end of the marketing/ratings stick. But before I get to your much-deserved (and lengthy) Traveler answers, I also wanted to say that it's been a blast interacting with you here and on the Traveler IMDb message board. Speaking with you and answering your questions was the best and most fulfilling part of the show's summer season. I hope our discussions can continue with my next show, DARWIN'S LAW, a one-hour action comedy about a CIA hitman who becomes a homicide detective, which you will hopefully see on ABC (yes, I aim to woo all angry Porters back to the network) in the fall of '08. Now, in my efforts to provide closure before people have completely forgotten what happened in our fun and fast 8-episode run, I offer this final blog entry… the once promised and now delivered closure that you guys deserve.

Q7: What happens to Chambers and Marlow?
To be sure, the Season 2 premiere would have picked up their story in the present day. Chambers realizes that Marlow was the one who called his cell phone, and after a major cat and mouse chase through the FBI field office, Marlow would disappear. Three months later, she's also gone underground, and the media has been sold a story that she was in fact in collusion with Will, Jay, and Tyler, and she helped them escape New York. Now, Marlow is on her own hunt to find out how Chambers was involved in the Drexler bombing. Meanwhile, Chambers has been promoted to Head of the entire New York Field Office. Everything is going great, except for the fact that Chambers' daughter, remember the one mentioned in season 1, becomes suspicious of her father's involvement in the Drexler conspiracy. His daughter, another new character for Season 2, would eventually become convinced that her father had framed Jay, Tyler, and Will. And when the boys resurface, she would reach out to them, eventually becoming a new love interest for Tyler. The Fourth Branch would learn of Chambers' daughter's indiscretion. And Jack Freed's mother, the woman now pulling the strings, would tell Chambers that his daughter would have to be removed. Through flashback, we would learn that Chambers faced the same situation when he was stationed in Israel. His wife discovered he was pulling off covert raids, kidnapping Palestinian soldiers on behalf of the Branch. And that time, he sacrificed his wife in hopes that it would help return his family to prominence in the Branch. This time, though, Chambers will choose his child over his loyalty to the cause, allowing one of our great villains to end his arc on a redemptive moment.

Season 2:

In Season 2 [...] Jay, Tyler, and Will set out on a journey to find and expose members of the society, and this time they will have the help of Agent Marlow, who wants revenge for her partner's murder. The return of Tyler's brother, leads Tyler's murder. And Marlow will ultimately fall at the hands of her former boss Chambers.

The End

And, yes, sadly, this really is the end. Thank you guys again for your passion. It was inspirational. And while this conclusion can not please everyone, I hope it at least answers your questions and allows you to move forward down the road.

Synopsis of "Leaving Barstow"

Eighteen year old Andrew Dayton is college material but seems to have given in to inertia and has apparently decided to remain in Barstow with his needy, lonely, mother, Sandra, his low level Barnes and Noble job, and no future or girlfriend in sight. However, circumstances conspire to galvanize him to action, made all the more impelling when he learns his best friend Carlos retrieved Andrew's college application to UCLA from the garbage and sent it in.

Sep 5, 2007 According to the NCIS-CBS mailing list, Steven is currently filming the 100th episode of NCIS. The episode is called "Chimera" and is scheduled to air on Oct 30, 2007.

Harriet: "Making our 100th Episode really special is the appearance of Steven Culp as Guest Star." -->

Sep 1, 2007 According to IMDB Steven will play the teacher Mr. Johns in the new movie "Leaving Barstow"

Genre: Drama

Directed by: Peter Paige
Produced by: Kevin J. Sheridan

And yes, it has been confirmed:

Jayson Crothers, the principal photographer on "Leaving Barstow," wrote in his blog:

It's a small, quiet character-driven story - very dialogue heavy and entirely performance based, but the director has an extremely strong and distinct visual tone in mind. We're shooting 106 pages in 18 days, so it'll be a fast shoot.

Day 6: We shot one of my favorite scenes today with our lead [Kevin Sheridan] and Steven Culp (from Desperate Housewives and The West Wing) - working with really great actors (both Kevin and Steven were really amazing in this scene together) gets me energized and the performances were really stunning - I think it was some of my most dynamic work in this scene and Peter [Paige] and I did some exciting blocking with the camera, starting people in wide-shots, bringing them into very dirty OTS's, and then further bringing them into extreme close ups with a lot of energy created in camera.

The Closer: "Till Death Do Us Part, part one" - Monday, Sept. 3, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Brenda and the PHD are under the microscope while getting to the bottom of a case involving a high-profile divorce attorney who was found dead in his swimming pool.

Guest Star (a.o.): Steven Culp - Lucas Cordry


(Sep 4, 2007 - edited to add: roadslesstravelledby.blogspot.com)

Kudos to Steven Culp for playing a great adversary to Kyra Sedgwick's Brenda in this episode. If you're going to send someone into a head-to-head clash with Brenda Lee Johnson, then Steven Culp is probably the guy to send. Culp's been a great actor on several hit shows (West Wing, JAG, Traveler to name a few; and Desperate Housewives even though I don't watch that one); and he was great in The Closer too. At episode's end, he seemed to have the upper hand on Brenda, but I'm looking forward to that changing next week.

Aug 27, 2007 (TNT Press Release)

The Closer: "Till Death Do Us Part, part two" - Monday, Sept. 10, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Testimony continues in case of the death of a high-profile divorce lawyer as THE CLOSER ends its summer run of new episodes.

Racing against the clock, Brenda confronts the unbreakable alibi of her prime suspect, and must consider if she's accused the wrong person of murder.  Meanwhile, her argument with Fritz over their future together reaches its final conclusion.

Guest Star (a.o.): Steven Culp - Lucas Cordry

(If you want to take a look at Lucas Cordry, click here.)


(Sep 11, 2007 - edited to add: roadslesstravelledby.blogspot.com)

As this episode returned to the squad room and moved away from the courtroom there wasn't much for Steven Culp (as the defense attorney) to do. That was unfortunate, but I won't complain too much because it gave some screen time to the grand devil of all guest stars: Fredric Lehne. Lehne played the corrupt alibi Topper Barnes.

(TV Jots.com)

The two-parter is notable for several other guest stars, as well. Steven Culp, who is in everything these days, it appears, plays hard-hitting defense attorney Lucas Cordry. Culp is known for his work in many film and television projects, of course, most recently including his turns as Bree Van De Kamp's murdered first husband Rex in Desperate Housewives and deceitful head FBI Special Agent Fred Chambers in the best new series this summer that will probably never return, Traveler.

A fan campaign is under way to resurrect ABC's Traveler on TNT. Visit Porters-and-Soldiers.com for more information.

Aug 20, 2007 Message from Dave DiGilio, creator of 'Traveler', posted on the IMDB message board:

I will hold off until September 19th to post the blog. That will be two months since the last on-air episode. I think if there is no traction to keep the show going after that, we all need to accept the fate. But if you're up for the campaign, get creative in terms of garnering media attention. And as always, stay positive. The networks respond to kind fans a lot better than they do to angry ones.

Aug 16, 2007 (TV Guide.com by Matt Webb Mitovich)

PS. to Traveler fans: I spoke to Steven Culp today, and he let slip an interesting spoiler about the Fourth Branch. Watch for that full Q&A on Sept. 3, when Culp guests on The Closer.

Aug 16, 2007 Message from Dave DiGilio, creator of 'Traveler', posted on the IMDB message board:

Hey, Guys. A couple of people have asked for an update, so I made another attempt to find out what's happening at ABC.

From my recent emails with ABC execs, I sadly do not believe that ABC is going to change their minds. Everyone who worked on TRAVELER thanks you the fans for your support and devotion. It was the best reward we got for making the show. In the end, I think the same thing that ultimately doomed our show -- lack of publicity -- also hurt the efforts to save it. Without major media outlet promotion, it's just impossible to generate mass awareness. I do not believe that ABC will make an official cancellation announcement, but I know from their responses that things are official.

I will be writing up the "answers" blog this weekend and posting it on TV Guide.com early next week. I am still hoping for a DVD release, but rather than wait to include the answers with that, I want to give you guys the closure that you deserve.

Again, this has been a wild ride. And I'm happy that I got a chance to interact and share some of my thoughts, frustrations, and hopes with you. My thanks go out to all of the Porters, superfans, and casual fans of the show. Your efforts to keep us going made it known that our two years of hard work were appreciated.

Aug 4, 2007 (Gate World.net)

Steven will appear in the episode Miller's Crossing of the SciFi series "Stargate Atlantis" as Henry Wallace. Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi wrote in his blog on August 2, 2007: "By the way, guest star Steven Culp is terrific in this one." Estimated air date is Nov 30, 2007.

Jul 29, 2007 (Herald Dispatch Blog by Angela Henderson)

The Fourth Branch Stays Secret For Now

"Traveler" creator David DiGilio is keeping the show's secrets secret for now.

He wrote on his blog that he wants to wait until the show is officially cancelled before he spills where the show was headed in season two. And since networks never officially cancel anything, fans will probably be waiting a long time...

Apparently Digilio wasn't listening to ABC President Steve McPherson at last week's Press Tour. McPherson told critics that "Traveler" was cancelled because "we were disappointed with the way that show was creatively developed."

Of course the show wasn't developed the way it should have been! They had to stuff 13 episodes into eight at the last minute because of McPherson!

Now you know why that guy's my TV enemy...

Jul 27, 2007 (The Star.com)

Exit Strategy: Traveler's producer says he won't divulge how the show is supposed to end because there's a "save the show" campaign. But is ABC paying attention? This week, the network's entertainment president said the show "ended up being just not quite up to the level we thought it could succeed."

Jul 26, 2007 (Post-Gazette.com)

The creator of ABC's "Traveler" claims he won't reveal the secrets of his show's series finale because a "save the show" campaign "has been noticed at ABC. So, I will wait and see how this plays out."

He needn't wait long. McPherson said the network didn't support the show with a larger marketing/media blitz because they were unhappy with how it turned out.

"We were disappointed in the way that that show creatively developed and ended up being just not to the level that we thought it could succeed," he said, "So it didn't get the kind of support that, you know, we gave some other shows that we believed in a lot more."

Clearly the network had no faith in "Traveler" before it even premiered, so no "save the show" campaign is going to work. No reason not to spill the details now.

(msnbc.msn.com)

Remember the ad blitz showing ads for "Traveler," where two college friends discover they really didn't know a third pal at all? Set to run 13 episodes and canceled after eight, the show is apparently not a favorite of ABC, and don't expect to see any more episodes. "We were disappointed in the way that that show creatively developed and (it) ended up being just not -- not to the level that we thought it could succeed," Mc Pherson said.

Jul 26, 2007 According to IMDB Steven will play Pastor Joe in the new movie "From Within"

Director: Phedon Papamichael
Genre: Horror / Mystery / Thriller

If it's true? I'm not sure. Let's wait until we hear from Steven himself or until the information appears on a more reliable website.


(Jul 1, 2007 - edited to add: Variety.com - nothing about Steven, but about the movie)

Papamichael to direct 'From Within'
Production on thriller begins next month, by Michael Fleming


Phedon Papamichael is set to direct "From Within," an independently financed thriller that will star Thomas Dekker ("Heroes"), Elizabeth Rice, Adam Goldberg and Jake Weber.

Brad Keene ("The Gravedancers") wrote the script.

Production begins next month in Maryland.

Set in a small, God-fearing town, story focuses on a young girl caught between her Christian upbringing and a desire to experience the outside world. Her desire to break free is amplified when residents begin to die suspiciously.

Pic's being financed through a European equity fund. Chris Gibbin and Adrian Butchart produce, and John Moshay and Bumble Ward are exec producers.

Papamichael was the cinematographer of such films as "Walk the Line," "The Pursuit of Happyness" and the James Mangold-directed remake "3:10 to Yuma."

Jul 25, 2007 At TV Guide.com David DiGilio (creator of Traveler) made a new entry ("What Is the Fourth Branch?") in his David's Traveler Blog.

Jul 22, 2007 Message from Dave DiGilio, creator of 'Traveler', posted on the IMDB message board:

I wanted to give you an update on what I know. Many of you have been asking if your efforts have been noticed at ABC. I am happy to report that they have been. I have had several people from the network comment about the "amazing devotion of the TRAVELER fans." These were actually unsolicited remarks, meaning that folks must be talking about the outcry of support you've shown since the finale.

I've also seen people on the boards asking why our cast members are taking other jobs. Well, that's a simple one. Our actors have not been paid for TRAVELER since they finished filming at the end of last year. But they remained under contract to the show until they were released by ABC. So, they missed casting for the last pilot season. And now that they are finally allowed to book gigs again, they are out there getting jobs because they are a talented group. Please know that it's not because they are "abandoning" the show. They all appreciate the love you've shown for their work. But we all have mouths to feed, whether our own or our families'. The good news (for us, not necessarily for them) is that because they were not available last pilot season, they do not have the type of rigid exclusivity contracts which would preclude them from doing any kind of wrap up we might be able to muster.

Lastly, I'm going to heed some of the advice I've read on this board. I am going to hold off on any hasty "wrap it up" blog postings until the dust settles. I am hoping this huge wave of support allows Will, Jay, Tyler, and company to live on in one medium or another, and if we get that to happen, I want to make sure we still have stories to tell.

Jul 21, 2007 The "Traveler" Finale: A Little Too Familiar

I promised you the finale of "Traveler" would be wild and it was; but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed...

Since the episode was completed before the show was cancelled, I knew we wouldn't get all the answers, but it would have been nice if the answers we did get had made more sense...

And it would have been nice if it all hadn't seemed so familiar...

Apparently, the bombing of the Drexler building was meant to destroy the painting of the Declaration of Independence because it revealed a secret fourth branch of the government, which was somehow connected to the organization that Will worked for.

Did that make sense to you?...

The episode was filled with lots of action, incriminating tape recordings, agency moles, and lots of talk about illegal activities for the good of the country. I almost checked my DVD player to make sure I wasn't watching the fifth season of "24."

I said "Traveler" was a "24" clone. I guess they took that to heart...

Jul 20, 2007 (TV Guide.com) This just in....

Exclusive! Housewives Alum Cops Closer Role

Steven Culp, well known for his run as Desperate Housewives' (now dearly departed) Rex and also a central (grr...) figure in ABC's just-concluded Traveler, will guest-star on two episodes of TNT's "The Closer", TV Guide.com has learned. Details have yet to come in as to Culp's exact role (spoiler to the Brenda-Fritz romance, hmm?), but his pair of appearances will air some time in September.

Jul 19, 2007 The Best TV Show of the Season Dies Premature Death by Mark

With almost no fanfare, ABC's summer thriller "Traveler" ended its all-too-brief eight-episode run last night. As expected, the series ended with a cliffhanger, as nobody knew back in November when the series was being produced that it would not be returning. As it stands though, it seems almost inevitable that this intelligently crafted action-drama is finished.

The saddest part of the "Traveler" story is that ABC essentially set it up to fail. Originally scheduled as a midseason replacement and given a 13-episode order, ABC informed the network when it was in the midst of filming episode eight last November that it would be the last show. The writers did get a chance to amend that particular episode's script to given some semblance of closure, but it was pretty clear ABC had every intention of sabotaging the series before it aired. The expectation of the show premiering early in 2007 as most midseason replacements do never came to pass, and although the series was a given a solid post-Grey's Anatomy timeslot for its mid-May sneak preview, it was quickly moved to Wednesday night and given next to no promotion for its low-profile summertime run.

Hard to understand what could have been going through the minds of ABC programmers investing in a high-budget show with an impressive cast (Steven Culp, Neal McDonough), only to send it to slaughter in June and July, when virtually nobody is watching network TV anymore. The only explanation I can come up with fits right into my conspiracy theory about the networks trying to unload higher-priced programming in the hopes of completely saturating the airwaves with lowest-denominator reality show drivel as quickly as possible. If only "Traveler" could have come out a year or two earlier, it would have at least had a chance.

A "Traveler" rerun on ABC scored a 1.9/4.

Jul 1, 2007 Message from Dave DiGilio, creator of 'Traveler', posted on the IMDB message board:

So, in my efforts to keep you guys fully up to date on the show, I wanted to let you know that the drop-dead date for extending our cast contracts has now officially come and gone. While this does not make the idea of a second season impossible, it certainly places another mountain in our way, as cast contracts would have to be renegotiated.

I continue to fight for the show because I believe in it and I have been motivated by the passion and initiative you all have shown. But we have definitely reached the point in TRAVELER's life where the network is listening more to the fans than the show's creator. I've seen you throw out some very creative ideas for saving the show. It's time to act on them.

"Traveler" earned a 2.6/5 for ABC.

At 10 p.m. [...] ABC [was] fourth with a 1.3 for "Traveler."

households: 2.7/5, #T11; adults 18-49: 1.3, #12


(Yahoo-Reuters/Hollywood Reporter)

But ABC lost momentum at 10 p.m. with sci-fi drama "Traveler" (3.8 million, 1.3/4), which was down further from last week's 4.5 million and 1.6/5 in adults 18-49.


(entertainmentnow.wordpress.com)

10:00 p.m.: Traveler (2.6/5 HH rating, 3.86M viewers, 1.3/4 A18-49 rating), unfortunately, wasn't able to build from last week's first increase of the season, as it fell off by 620,000 viewers (14%), 13% among households and 19% among adults 18-49. (Update: The final nationals show a little better performance for the show: 2.7/5 HH Rating, 3.94M Viewers and a 1.4/4 A18-49 Rating). I tell ya, it would be great if ABC could somehow find a way to keep this show around, but these ratings certainly aren't helping the cause. Hopefully the season finale has some sort of finality to it.

Jun 25, 2007 At TV Guide.com David DiGilio (creator of Traveler) made a new entry (Four-quadrant Television) in his David's Traveler Blog:

Hey, fellow Travelers! We had a great week both in episode response and in the ratings. All of your hard work promoting the show paid off with a 23-percent ratings increase week-to-week in the 18-to-49 demo. So, a huge thank-you goes out to all the fans who continue to spread the good Traveler word! Please keep it up. The show gets even more fun, action-packed and emotional as we head into the last three episodes of the season. (For more of his blog go to David's Traveler Blog)

Traveler: 1.6/5 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall


(Yahoo-Reuter/Hollywood Reporter)

ABC's sci-fi "Traveler" (4.1 million, 1.3/4) came in third in the 10 p.m. hour.


(The Futon Critic.com)

"Traveler" is Up 10% in Viewers and 23% in Adults 18-49 Over the Prior Week, Continuing to Improve the Hour for ABC

ABC's "Traveler" posted week-to-week increases of 10% in Total Viewers (4.5 million vs. 4.1 million) and 23% in Adults 18-49 (1.6/5 vs. 1.3/4).

Compared to ABC's performance in the hour in the comparable 4 weeks last year (5/31 - 6/21/06), "Traveler" is up on average in both Total Viewers (5.0 million vs. 4.9 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.7/5 vs. 1.5/4).


(entertainmentnow.wordpress.com)

10:00 p.m.: Traveler (3.0/5 HH rating, 4.41M viewers, 1.6/5 A18-49 rating) registered a much needed boost after three straight weeks of declining ratings.  Most significant was its solid increase among adults 18-49 of 23%.  Anyone else still annoyed a bit by ABC basically dumping this enjoyable and promising series in the summer?  Only three episodes are left to be aired.

If you are looking to get away from baseball altogether for an evening (and who could blame you) do yourself a favor and check out ABC's Traveler. The fourth episode ran last night but you can catch up via ABC.com The show has sucked me into the plot, has an interesting story line, and the great Steven Culp, who is always fantastic and under-rated.

Jun 9, 2007 A petition to keep Traveler alive was created:

If we receive a fair amount of signatures, we'll send the link to ABC via email.

Sincerely,

Message from Dave DiGilio, creator of 'Traveler', posted on the IMDB message board:

Right now, we've been told that TRAVELER is a summer series and you will see all eight episodes of the first season! So don't be afraid to invest in this show. I will make sure you get answers to any dangling questions, even if you have to get them via my blog over at TVguide.com.

The other thing I keep reading is that you think your opinion does not matter unless you have a Nielsen Box. That, my friends, is pure and utter crap. I'm sure you have read about the fans who recently convinced CBS to renew JERICHO after the show was already canceled. You think you are powerless? Not at all.

So, if you like TRAVELER, or if you just want to make sure that not all summer programming must include a panel of judges with a surly Brit, start getting vocal. Tell your friends to catch up on old episodes at ABC.com. Then tell them to tune in next Wednesday for another blow-your-drawers-off episode... two words for you... "The Porter." Seriously, this show is just getting warmed up. Now that Will is alive, things really get crazy.

But lastly, and most importantly, let ABC know that you like this show!!! I am not suggesting that you send 35,000 tons of nuts to ABC headquarters. But I am suggesting that you go back to the era of fan mail. Contact ABC scheduling and show your support. Because right now, all they have to go off is Nielsen boxes. And those Nielsen boxes go off of advertising. And well, there's not a ton of advertising, so there won't be a ton of Nielsen boxes... kind of like the whole chicken & the egg thing.

So keep up the posting. Contact ABC. And start spreading the good TRAVELER word far and wide. We need to reach out to the fans of 24, LOST, HEROES, and JERICHO, the serialized shows that are returning next year. It's up to you guys to make sure we can join them.

Jun 7, 2007 Regarding the third episode of Traveler "New Haven":

(Media Week.com)

Second at 10 p.m. was episode three of ABC drama Traveler (4.4/7).


(PI Feedback.com)

Second in the hour was episode three of ABC drama Traveler, viewers: 5.44 million; adults 18-49: 1.8/5


(Zap2it.com)

At 10 p.m. ABC's "Traveler" 3.7/6, was second


(Media Life Magazine.com)

ABC was second with a 1.8 for "Traveler"


(The Futon Critic.com)

ABC's "Traveler" took second place during the 10 o'clock hour in Total Viewers (5.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.8/5). "Traveler" improved the hour for ABC over the same night last year in viewers and young adults (5.3 million & 1.4/4 on 6/7/06).


(entertainmentnow.wordpress.com)

10:00 p.m.: Traveler (3.7/6 HH rating, 5.44M viewers, 1.8/5 A18-49 rating) declined yet again in its third week, hitting a series low with its weekly decline of 840,000 viewers (13%), 12% among households and 14% among adults 18-49. It's a shame ABC saw it necessary to hold the series until the Summer as I find it to be a very enjoyable hour of television.

May 31, 2007 Regarding the pilot and the second episode of Traveler "The Retreat" aired in its timeslot:

(Media Life Magazine.com)

ABC's adventure drama "The Traveler," which had a sneak preview behind "Grey's Anatomy" a few weeks ago, failed to benefit from that exposure. In its timeslot debut, the show placed a distant second at 10 p.m. with a 2.0 18-49 rating, despite being the only original program on the Big Three that hour.


(Zap2it.com)

ABC dropped to fourth with a repeat of "Traveler." [...] A new "Traveler" posted a 4.2/7 for ABC


(The Futon Critic.com)

The repeat of the pilot ranked households: 3.5/6, #13; adults 18-49: 1.6, #12, the second episode in its new time slot raned households: 4.2/7, #8; adults 18-49: 2.1, #8

Building on its 9 o'clock lead-in by 1.4 million viewers and by 40% in young adults (replay of "Traveler" pilot episode = 4.9 million & 1.5/4), the time period premiere of ABC's "Traveler" took second place at 10:00 p.m. in Total Viewers (6.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.1/6).

Versus its performance in the hour on the year-ago evening with an original episode and time period premiere of "Commander in Chief" (5.5 million & 1.6/4 on 5/31/06), "Traveler" boosted ABC's results in the time slot by 15% in Total Viewers and by 31% in Adults 18-49.


(entertainmentnow.wordpress.com)

# 9:00 p.m.: A repeat of the series premiere of Traveler (3.4/6 HH rating, 4.99M viewers, 1.6/5 A18-49 rating) was only so-so, but for a repeat, it wasn't too bad. American Inventor returns for another season in this time slot next week.

# 10:00 p.m.: A new episode of Traveler (4.2/7 HH rating, 6.20M viewers, 2.1/6 A18-49 rating) expectedly improved upon its repeat lead-in, but fell a good amount from its last newly aired episode which was aired as a sneak preview after an episode of Grey's Anatomy. Decline was at 2.41M viewers (28%), 29% among households and 40% among adults 18-49. Even though it seems very apparent that ABC is just burning off the series in these summer weeks, if episodes continue to perform at this rate, they should be very content as ratings will equal or exceed fall/mid-season programming (at least in terms of households and viewers).

Excerpt from an interview with Matthew Bomer:

Think you know your best friends? Well, if your best friend is named Will Traveler, you probably don't. In this hot new series (which airs both the pilot and the second episode tonight on ABC at 9 pm/ET), two college pals find out that their friend may have framed them for a terrorist act. Matthew Bomer, a one-time buzzed-about candidate to play Superman in last year's Superman Returns, stars as Jay, who is on the run from the law. TVGuide.com managed to catch up with him to find out about his current gig.

[...]

TVGuide.com: Do you wish that the premise allowed you more scenes with Steven Culp [as the FBI agent in charge of the manhunt]?

Matthew Bomer: Yeah, I didn't get to work with Steven enough this season. I know that would change in the future, but he's fantastic. I love Steven. He's a great guy, too. Viola [Davis], Anthony Ruivivar and Bill [Mayo]. whenever I can get a chance to work with them or be on set when they're shooting, I just take notes.

The DVD of "Firehouse Dog" will be released in the US on July 31, 2007

May 15, 2007 (ABC Medianet.com)

The pilot of Traveler will be repeated at **9pm** on May 30 with the 2nd episode airing right after at 10pm

May 12, 2007 Regarding the preview of the pilot of Traveler:

(The Hollywood Reporter)

A special preview of the drama "Traveler" (8.8 million, 3.6/10) failed to generate much enthusiasm on ABC, coming in third place at 10 p.m. against the season finale of "Without a Trace" (14.4 million, 3.9/11) and "ER" (9.2 million, 3.8/11). "Traveler" was 14% below the average set by "October Road," the previous occupant in the time period. It did however win the hour in adults 18-34, women 18-49 and women 18-34.


(Mediaweek online)

Top honors at 10 p.m. went to the season-finale of CBS' Without a Trace at a 10.5/17 in its former time period. Second was NBC's deteriorating ER (6.9/11), followed by the lackluster preview of ABC drama Traveler at a 6.6/11. Comparatively, Traveler held only 50 percent of the Grey's Anatomy lead-in, while dipping by 19 percent (7.3/12 to 5.9/10) in the second half-hour. A repeat of the Traveler pilot will move into its regularly scheduled Wednesday 10 p.m. tome period on May 30.


(Zap2it.com)

At 10 p.m., the season finale of "Without a Trace" posted a 9.9/17 for CBS. NBC finished second with "ER," 6.2/11, and a preview showing of "Traveler" on ABC scored a 6.1/11.


(timesunion.com)

ABC won the most viewers aged 18 to 49, despite a poor showing for the summer series "Traveler"


(The Futon Critic.com)

A sneak preview airing of ABC's "Traveler" ranked No. 1 during the 10 o'clock hour -- against competition including CBS' season finale of "Without a Trace" and NBC's "ER" -- among Adults 18-34 (3.2/10), Women 18-49 (5.1/14) and Women 18-34 (4.5/13). In fact "Traveler" ranked as the No. 2 program of the night with Women 18-34, behind only "Grey's Anatomy."

"Traveler" will premiere in its regular Wednesday 10:00 p.m. time period on May 30, 2007, following the 2-hour series debut of ABC's "The Next Best Thing."


(entertainmentnow.wordpress.com)

10:00 p.m.: A special preview of the pilot episode of Traveler (6.1/11 HH rating, 8.88M viewers, 3.6/10 A18-49 rating) didn't get off to a very good start, which is unfortunate because I thought this was one of ABC's strongest pilots. The show had horrible retention rates: 48% among households, 47% among viewers and 48% among adults 18-49. Having a two-week window between now and the show's time period debut on May 30th isn't going to help things. It appears now, more than ever, that this is just going to be a summer burn off. Shame, because the show does have potential.

Apr 21, 2007 (Zap2it.com)

ABC will air what it's calling a "sneak preview" of the pilot episode, which follows two friends who are framed for an act of terrorism, on Thursday, May 10, following "Grey's Anatomy."

ABC has also set a piece of its summer lineup, which includes another scripted series originally slated for an earlier premiere. The drama "Traveler" will open on Wednesday, May 30, a few days after the official end of the 2006-07 season.

"Traveler," which was initially set to be a midseason show, centers on two friends (Logan Marshall-Green, "The O.C.," and Matthew Bomer, "Flightplan") who are framed for a terrorist bombing -- possibly by their buddy Will Traveler (Aaron Stanford, "X-Men"). They go underground, trying to clear their names while figuring out how Will is involved.

Steven Culp ("Desperate Housewives"), Viola Davis (CBS' "Jesse Stone" movies) and William Sadler ("Wonderfalls") also star.

Steven Culp Returns to Desperate Housewives

(TV Guide.com)

They're always in the shadow of their female costars, but the men of Desperate Housewives may finally be taking center stage. Executive producer Marc Cherry is considering a male narrator for a very special episode that would focus mostly on the men of Wisteria Lane. "The whole show would be told from a male point of view," Cherry tells TV Guide.

The narrator will be DH's favorite dead husband, Rex Van De Kamp. "I was sitting in a makeup chair on the set of my new show, [ABC's mid-season series] Traveler, and my cell phone rang," says Steven Culp, who played Rex. "It was Marc. He told me he wanted me to be the narrator. I said fabulous. They could change their minds, but I hope not." Should Culp need any pointers, regular narrator Brenda Strong is available. "I'm waiting for the phone call from Steven saying, 'Oh, my god, is that what you do? It's a lot harder than I thought,'" Strong told TV Guide.com the other day. "I, for one, am going to be really curious to see it."


(Extra.com)

"Extra" spoke to "Desperate Housewives" creator and executive producer Marc Cherry, who dished that just in time for Valentine's Day, the hit ABC show will air an episode in which the story will be told from a male's point of view.

Marcia Cross' character's dead husband, Rex (played by actor Steven Culp), will voice the story and every detail of Wisteria Lane will be played out through his eyes.


(Media Village.com)

Those cool ideas include an upcoming episode focused on the men of Wisteria Lane, narrated not by the deceased Mary Alice but by Bree's late husband, Rex. "It's going to be told from all the guys' point of view," Cherry says. "That's going to be a real fun episode. I don't know that it will have the impact of the hostage episode but I think people will get a really big kick out of it because it's different."

The idea to bring back Rex, who died at the end of season one, started with one of the housewives. "Teri Hatcher was the one who said to me at the end of season one, 'It's a shame now that Rex has died that he can't narrate,'" Cherry says. "I thought that was interesting. Steven Culp [the actor who played Rex] and I have kept in contact so I called him and he thought it was a fun idea."

REX VAN DE KAMP is set to make an unexpected return in the new series of Desperate Housewives.

Bree's husband, played by Steven Culp, was killed by her obsessed suitor in the last series and will be brought back for one episode only.

But there's no outlandish plot twist and Bree won't be seeing any ghosts. Rex will replace the show's narrator, Mary Alice Young, for an episode which features on the male inhabitants of Wisteria Lane.


** (Dec 16, 2006 - edited to add: digitalspy.co.uk, by Kris Green)

Steven Culp, who played Desperate Housewives' Rex Van De Kamp, is to make an unexpected return to the programme.

The actor has reportedly been lined up to narrate an upcoming male-orientated episode of the current season, meaning resident narrator Mary Alice (Brenda Strong) would be sidelined for the episode.

Culp's character was bumped off by his wife Bree's (Marcia Cross) obsessed stalker George Williams (Roger Bart) at the end of the first season.

Desperate Househusbands

I guess it makes sense, if you're going to make a very special episode of Desperate Housewives from the men's point of view, to use Rex Van De Kamp (Steven Culp, pictured, with Marcia Cross and Hunter Allen) as your deceased narrator. Still, do we really care about the men's perspective on DH? Do the guys on this show have rich inner lives that have gone previously unexplored? Except for the mysterious Orson (and maybe the amnesiac Mike), probably not. Much as I would enjoy watching unlikely bachelor-pad roomies Mike and Carlos throwing a beer blast, I wonder what the deceased Rex can tell us about the lives of Wisteria Lane's men.

Oct 27, 2006 (The Hollywood Reporter)

ABC has reduced the order for the midseason drama "Traveler" from 13 to eight episodes, including the pilot.


(Variety.com)

Meanwhile, ABC also confirmed Thursday that the WBTV-produced "Traveler," which had been given a 13-episode midseason order, will instead produce eight episodes (including the pilot) for its first cycle.

Alphabet decided it only had room on its spring schedule for an eight-episode arc of the skein, and asked WBTV to produce five fewer segs. Because of the serialized nature of the skein, ABC wanted to give producers a chance to wrap up storylines for the first season, rather than leaving viewers hanging in the event the show doesn't make it to a second season.

Oct 18, 2006 The release date of "Firehouse Dog" was changed to June 1, 2007.

Sep 28, 2006 "Firehouse Dog" is scheduled to be released on March 16, 2007.

Wisteria flashbacks are hair apparent - 'Housewives': That '90s show

Sunday's Desperate Housewives season finale (9 p.m. ET/PT) will take the women and men back in time to their first meetings with Mary Alice Young on Wisteria Lane.

Mary Alice (Brenda Strong) welcomes each of the families to the neighborhood, beginning in 1994 with the arrival of Susan, then-husband Karl and their 2-year-old daughter, Julie. The following year welcomes Bree, Rex and 6-year-old Andrew. A 2002 flashback sees frisky newlyweds Gabrielle and Carlos moving to Fairview.

This required the show's hair and makeup wizards to make the mostly fortysomething actors appear younger. To pull off the time warps, less makeup was applied, and all the flashbacks were shot through filters to soften facial lines and look vintage.

Key hairstylist Gabor Heiligenberg used hairpieces on male cast members Richard Burgi (Karl) and returning actor Steven Culp (Rex). "Small little custom-made hairpieces blended and glued down to their hairlines undoes the progression of male hair loss by bringing their hairlines forward," Heiligenberg explains. "It's a subtle process that shaves 10 years off." Shades of gray were dyed away.

[...]

Marcia Cross' style, he says, "reflects a much more relaxed Bree. It's not that tight flip that you're used to seeing on her. She's not as wound-up yet."

May 08, 2006 According to ABC press release, Steven will appear in the second season finale of "Desperate Housewives" on May 21, 2006.

"Remember" - A series of flashbacks take us back to moving-in day on Wisteria Lane for Bree, Susan, Gaby and Lynette, and to how Mary Alice Young brought them all together. Meanwhile Bree gets some frightening news, Susan moves into a trailer, Lynette discovers Tom's secret and all is not well in the house of Solis, on the two-hour Second-Season finale of "Desperate Housewives," SUNDAY, MAY 21 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"Desperate Housewives" stars Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Van De Kamp, Eva Longoria as Gabrielle Solis, Nicollette Sheridan as Edie Britt, Alfre Woodard as Betty Applewhite, Brenda Strong as Mary Alice Young, James Denton as Mike Delfino, Doug Savant as Tom Scavo, Ricardo Antonio Chavira as Carlos Solis, Mark Moses as Paul Young, Richard Burgi as Karl Mayer, Cody Kasch as Zach Young, Andrea Bowen as Julie Mayer, Shawn Pyfrom as Andrew Van De Kamp, Joy Lauren as Danielle Van De Kamp, Mehcad Brooks as Matthew Applewhite, Nashawn Kearse as Caleb, Zane Huett as Parker Scavo and Brent and Shane Kinsman as Porter and Preston Scavo.

Dramatic career turn for 'Housewives' alum

There is life after death on "Desperate Housewives."

Steven Culp, who played doomed Rex Van De Kamp, has joined the cast of ABC's drama pilot "Traveler."

The thriller opens big with the bombing of a famous New York City art museum - which triggers a national-security emergency, not to mention millions of dollars in insurance claims.

The show is quite a departure from the soapy confines of "Housewives."

Culp, who played Marcia Cross' browbeaten husband whose peccadilloes included S&M, said in an interview late last year with the Daily News that he was looking for the anti-Rex.

He passed on numerous projects that would have had him playing "a married guy having sexual problems with his wife."

"I don't want to be this guy again so soon," he said.

Culp Lands in Thriller Pilot

Steven Culp, who played MACO leader "Major Hayes" in the third season of Enterprise, is used to seeing his characters killed off after one season. Similar to Hayes, his recent part in Desperate Housewives met an untimely death in the first season. But maybe he'll have better luck with a new pilot he's just been cast in for ABC.

The show is called Traveler, and it's a thriller about three Yale graduate students who become wrapped up in a national security emergency after one of them frames the other two for the bombing of a New York art museum, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No word yet on what part Culp will play, or when or if the series is slated to air.

The Emmy Awards: A Night of Surprises

BACKSTAGE AT THE EMMYS

EVERYBODY WINS Going into the ceremony, even the other nominees expected Desperate Housewives to be the evening's big Emmy winner. "You could hear the audience clap real loud when they mentioned Desperate Housewives," said Ray Romano backstage. "Then we won and felt guilty about it."


WHAT WOULD THE HOUSEWIVES CHARACTERS THINK OF THE EMMYS?

STEVEN CULP (REX VAN DE KAMP): "Rex would be looking for anybody dressed in leather. He'd have his eye out."

Sep 25, 2005 (Boston Herald, by Amy Amatangelo)

We're 'Desperate' to see what will happen

What's up on Wisteria Lane? Television's most famous cul-de-sac returns for a second season tonight at 9on WCVB (Ch. 5) with an expanded cast and expectations as high as Bree's son. What can viewers expect in the deceptively pleasant world of "Desperate Housewives'' this season? What will percolate underneath those well-tended lawns? Here are our guesses.

BREE

Where we left off: After Rex (Steven Culp) died, Bree (Marcia Cross) lost it while polishing the silver. And poor Rex died thinking that his wife was trying to kill him.

What you can expect this season: It does look like Rex is really dead, but Culp probably will appear in flashbacks. The grieving widow will have to contend with Rex's busybody mom, Phyllis (Shirley Knight), and nefarious pharmacist-in-need-of-a-restraining-order George (Roger Bart, who is bumped up to series regular). Could Bree be blamed for Rex's untimely demise? And how much more evil can Andrew become?

Sep 25, 2005 (St. Petersburg Times, by Sharon Fink)

Desperate for more
The second season of Desperate Housewives premieres tonight at 9 on WFTS-Ch. 28.

When last we left Desperate Housewives, Lynette had won the Emmy for best comedy actress over Bree and Susan, and Gabrielle was letting the Emmy people make fun of her for not being nominated for anything. All the girls except Susan were posing together backstage, but Susan was posing at parties with Edie, and those in the know were amping up the buzz about how Susan really isn't liked much on Wisteria Lane. And then Bree and Edie debuted a 7Up commercial they did together ...

Oh. You want to know what's happening on the TV show?

All right. With Housewives' second season premiering tonight, we'll answer the most pressing questions generated by last season's finale, or at least the most pressing questions we have answers for.

IS REX REALLY MOST SINCERELY DEAD? Yes, creator Marc Cherry has insisted for weeks. Yes, says the portrayer of Bree's husband, Steven Culp. Yes, says Bree, Marcia Cross. His funeral will be a focus of tonight's episode, and it will introduce his mother, who will become a major source of irritation for Bree. Also, creepy pharmacist George Williams (Roger Bart), who may have shoved Rex down the path toward the white light, will return and step up his creepy romantic interest in the now-widow Van De Kamp.

With the Secrets Revealed, 'Housewives' Turns to New Mysteries

After a first season in which it attracted an estimated 24 million viewers every week, helped resuscitate ABC and won six Emmy Awards, "Desperate Housewives" resumes its crooked suburban soap opera on Sunday night.

[...]

[Mark Cherry] said there might also be an episode in which the focus, for a change, would be on the men of Wisteria Lane rather than the housewives. And he quashed the rumor that Rex (Steven Culp), Bree's dead husband, hadn't really died and might come back in a surprise plot twist. "Some people got that idea because of a shot of him that cut away before he finished writing Bree a note, but I thought it was clear" that he had died, he said.

Other Minds holding 'seances' in a church

The American Conservatory Theater has snagged some "Desperate Housewives" bait for its First Look workshop production of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's play "The Velvet Sky," 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Zeum Theater in San Francisco. Steven Culp, who has a recurring role as Rex Van De Kamp on the ABC hit series about booty in the burbs, will play the role of Warren in the script-in-hand production, directed by Maria Mileaf. Culp also played Joe Pitt in ACT's "Angels in America" in 1994.

At the Governor's Ball [...] I also ran into Steven Culp, the now-dead husband of Marcia Cross on the show.

Culp scored big-time reviews playing Bobby Kennedy in "Thirteen Days" against Kevin Costner, and was probably the best actor on "Housewives."

He's already gone back to movies and has plenty of work, but he did concede that he would have preferred to stay with the show.

"I wanted to stay, that's for sure," he said. "My career always seems to take me back to TV."

In case you missed it, he's had a recurring role on "The West Wing."

As for "Housewives," don't expect to see him back there anytime soon. There have been no plans to film flashbacks or ghost scenes. His character, Rex, is dead, dead, dead.

"Desperate Housewives," the show that created the biggest buzz last season, starts year No. 2 on ABC at 9 p.m. on Sept. 25

Steven Culp, a former Virginia Beach resident, was written out of the show when his character (Rex Van De Kamp) died as he faced heart surgery. The poor guy was overdosed on potassium. He suspected his wife, Bree, but wrote her a note of forgiveness in his last moments.

His character may be dead but we have not seen the last of Culp, said Executive Producer Marc Cherry. "He'll be back to do some flashbacks. You'll be seeing some more of Steven."

Didn't you love how Bree (Marcia Cross) calmly went on polishing the silver after the hospital called to say Rex "passed away about 10 minutes ago."

Bree's hubby back, in Vancouver flick

Since his character bought the farm at the end of Desperate Housewives' first season, actor Steven Culp, who played Rex Van De Kamp on the hot series, was available for work when Vancouver's Shavick/Insight Studios offered him a juicy role as a doctor in their TV movie, Black Christmas, which wraps here this week.

STUDIO: Copperheart Entertainment

Sep 6, 2005 From the message board: Television Without Pity

Is Rex really gone on Desperate Housewives?

This is slightly spoilerish, so read only if you want to know. Steven Culp was at the Pageant of the Masters event over the weekend--it's a Laguna Beach, California, art show where people act out paintings live, and it's much cooler than I'm making it sound. Anyway, poor Culpy nodded when asked if he's really gone, saying, "It's kind of inevitable that the men will keep changing faces. You have to keep the women. It keeps the story moving." Nooooo!

Prime-time spookfest

Steven Culp, the busy television actor who grew up in Virginia Beach and graduated from First Colonial High School, may be seen on "Desperate Housewives" next season after all. "At some point, we'll do flashbacks with Steven's character," said the show's creator, Marc Cherry.

Cherry killed off Culp's character, Rex Van De Kamp, last season. "Steven's storyline simply ended. I'm not worried about his future. He's a terrific actor who works constantly."

May 30, 2005 (NY Post, by Michael Starr)

'I Bet it was Going to be Me'

REX Van De Kamp's death on the season finale of "Desperate Housewives" wasn't a total shock to Steven Culp, the actor who portrayed him.

"I had a sneaking suspicion someone was going to go," Culp, 49, tells Entertainment Weekly.

"The show's about the housewives," he says. "You got to keep them desperate."

Culp wasn't exactly thrilled to be written off TV's hottest new show, but says he understands how it works in the TV business.

"I was laying bets with the other guys in the cast it was going to be me," he says. "After I found out it was, I stopped doing that."

Culp says he learned of his "Housewives" fate in early April after the show's writers and series creator Marc Cherry decided that the Rex-Bree plotline had run its course.

The uptight Bree, played by Marcia Cross, had nursed her cheating, S&M-loving hubby through his heart attack.

She seemed to finally forgive him after his second heart attack when she learned on the season finale that Rex had died in the hospital.

Culp likens the feeling to being written off "Housewives" to being dumped by a girlfriend, but says he still feels good about his run on the show.

He says he broke the news of his "death" to his wife, Barbara Ayers (they have two kids) and his father that night by opening some wine and toasting a fine year.

"Here's the worst-case scenario: I've been on this phenomenal success. Done work I'm proud of. Made money to provide for my family. And I'm free again. That's not a bad situation," says Culp.

"If millions of people call in and say, 'How can you kill Rex?' maybe they'll make it all a hoax," he says, laughing.

TV death stalks the mainstays

You don't need a sixth sense to see dead people. Just turn on the TV.

Prime-time series regulars have had a high mortality rate this season, especially during the May ratings sweeps period used by some local stations to set ad rates.

In the past week, viewers have seen the deaths of regulars from Desperate Housewives, NCIS and Smallville. The O.C. and Third Watch added to the toll earlier in May, and Housewives, Lost and CSI: Miami had high-profile fatalities earlier this season.

Housewives regular Steven Culp, whose Rex Van De Kamp succumbed Sunday, says he had a great time with the role and understands the high drama of death. "Part of this is sweeps mentality," he says.

Sunday's episode and one with the murder of Mrs. Huber were Housewives' most watched. "Actors should prepare for this, because I don't think the series regular is a sacrosanct entity anymore," Culp says.

Shows with big casts, such as Housewives or the 14-character Lost, can withstand the loss of a regular easier than smaller shows.

'Desperate' Measures

"Housewives" finale beats "Star Wars." ABC's cliffhanger draws 30 million versus 8.5 million for Fox's "Clones" telecast

Two teams of hard-boiled crime-solvers and an army of clones proved no match for the women of Wisteria Lane on Sunday. Desperate Housewives' first-season finale — which packed into 60 delicious minutes a surprising death, a murderous flashback, and a cliffhanger that leaves several characters in peril — drew 30.7 million viewers according to preliminary Nielsen ratings. (If you Tivo'd the episode and haven't watched it, stop reading now).

Housewives outpaced its three major network competitors combined, as both CBS and NBC chose to air repeats rather than risk sacrificing original programs against the Housewives juggernaut. Fox's airing of the film Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones pulled in 8.5 million, CBS' CSI repeat drew 11.5 million, and on NBC a repeat of Crossing Jordan drew 4.9 million.

A good chunk of viewers who watched Bree (Marcia Cross) get word that her husband Rex (Steven Culp) had died awaiting heart surgery — conspiracy theorists, note: we never actually saw Rex's corpse — stuck around for ABC's Grey's Anatomy. The freshman medical drama scored 22 million viewers in the overnight ratings, helping lead ABC to a victory for the night with an average 20.1 million coach potatoes.

STEVEN CULP may play Rex Van De Kamp on "Desperate Housewives," but he wants you to know he is nothing like his TV persona. Or at least he doesn't have the same hair as him. While getting a touch-up at L'Oreal Paris' beauty suite at the Tribeca Film Festival, he begged, "Please, don't make me look like Bree's husband." They followed his plea.

Desperately Dreadful: A Dialogue with Maureen Ryan

Who's your favorite adult character on ABC's hit show, "Desperate Housewives"?
Over the course of the season, nearly all of them have grown less and less appealing, making it difficult to choose. But I do have one, and I'll get to that.

But first, let me say that I'm not knocking the show, which my wife and I find exceedingly entertaining. "Seinfeld" demonstrated that it's possible – even helpful – to have a program in which the main characters are morally vapid and in many ways purely repellent.

Here's my rundown/smackdown of the top characters:

Rex Van De Kamp (Steven Culp) -- I've got a soft spot for ol' Rex even though he betrayed Bree with a dominatrix because, well, who wouldn't stray if he were married to a Sno-cone? And he's clearly the smarter and even more loving parent when it comes to dealing with wayward, troubled Andrew. But he's been cowardly, cruel and uncommunicative in his dealings with Bree, a bit of a frozen confection himself.

Apr 5, 2005 According to an ABC press release, Steven will appear on the episode "Live Alone and Like It" of "Desperate Housewives"

(ABC press release)

"Live Alone and Like It" - Lynette discovers that no good deed goes unpunished when she momentarily befriends mean Mrs. McCluskey (guest star Kathryn Joosten), and Susan, still reeling from her breakup with Mike, is mortified when her mom (guest star Lesley Ann Warren) - also now single -- decides to jump start both their love lives, on "Desperate Housewives," SUNDAY, APRIL 17 (9:00-10:02 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"Desperate Housewives" stars Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Van De Kamp, Eva Longoria as Gabrielle Solis, Nicollette Sheridan as Edie Britt, Steven Culp as Rex Van De Kamp, Ricardo Antonio Chavira as Carlos Solis, Mark Moses as Paul Young, Andrea Bowen as Julie Mayer, Jesse Metcalfe as John, Cody Kasch as Zach Young, Brenda Strong as Mary Alice Young and James Denton as Mike Delfino.

Guest starring are Doug Savant as Tom Scavo, Zane Huette as Parker Scavo, Brent Kinsman as Preston Scavo, Shane Kinsman as Porter Scavo, Shawn Pyfrom as Andrew Van De Kamp, Nick Chinlund as Detective Sullivan, Kathryn Joosten as Mrs. McCluskey, Dakin Matthews as Reverend Sikes, Geoff Pierson as Sam, Lesley Ann Warren as Sophie Bremmer, James Michael Connor as Tim, David Pevsner as the waiter, Paul Raw as the ice cream vendor and Patrick Dollaghan as Lamont.

Oct 23, 2004 Excerpt from an interview with Vaughn Armstrong at SciFiPulse.Net:

The Many Faces of Vaughn Armstrong, by Ian M. Cullen

I was recently lucky enough to meet up with actor Vaughn Armstrong during his recent visit to England for 'The Cult TV Festival' which was held over the weekend of 8th through to the 11th October at the Sandbay Holiday Village in Weston-Super-Mare.

Armstrong as many Star Trek fans will know is credited with having portrayed 11 different alien roles during the last 17 years of Star Trek, but he is best known to fans of Star Treks newest Incarnation 'Enterprise' as Admiral Forrest. Sci Fi Pulse caught up with the actor during his recent visit to the UK and talked about life the universe and Star Trek.

[...]

Among many of Vaughn Armstrong's acting credits is a part in the hit US Military Drama series 'JAG' which. So I asked the actor if he had ever worked with Steven Culp who as many know played Major Hayes in Enterprise's 4th Season, but has a recurring role in JAG as Special Agent Clayton Web. Armstrong unfortunately never got chance to work with Culp [...].

Added Mark Pedowitz, president, Touchstone Television: "Success in our business starts with creators who are passionate about an idea.

I am so proud of everyone associated with 'Lost' and 'Desperate Housewives,' for all their hard work and support, and we're ecstatic that viewers have responded so positively to their efforts."

Stripped of everything, the 48 survivors of a horrific plane crash scavenge what they can from the plane for their survival. Some panic. Some pin their hopes on rescue. A few find inner strength they never knew they had. The band of friends, family, enemies and strangers must work together against the cruel weather and harsh terrain if they want to stay alive. But the island holds many secrets, including the intense howls of the mysterious creatures stalking the jungle, which fill them all with fear. Fortunately, thanks to the calm leadership of quick-thinking Jack and level-headed Kate, they have hope. But even heroes have secrets, as the survivors will come to learn.

A brilliant academician in her own right, first lady Dr. Abigail "Abbey" Bartlet (Stockard Channing) staunchly supports her husband but does not hesitate to keep him in line when necessary.

As always, professorial Chief of Staff Leo McGarry (John Spencer) resolutely serves as Bartlet's political and emotional right hand, while Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman (Bradley Whitford) keeps his highly regarded political mind in overdrive. Donna Moss (Janel Moloney), Josh's capable assistant, more than holds her own in their friendly verbal sparring.

Despite the constant media scrutiny in the briefing room, Press Secretary C.J. Cregg (Allison Janney) remains cool and competent. Stoic Toby Ziegler (Richard Schiff), the rumpled and sleepless communications director, stays focused, while brash new Deputy National Security Advisor Kate Harper (Mary McCormack) and Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor to the Vice President Will Bailey (Joshua Malina) continually rise to the occasion. Also proving himself more and more valuable each day is the President's brilliant young personal assistant, Charlie (Dulé Hill).

In the aftermath of the Gaza Strip attack that seriously wounded Donna and killed Admiral Fitzwallace and two American congressmen, Bartlet faces strong opposition to his peace plans. Defying the wishes of the majority of Congress--including some of the White House's Democratic allies--the American people and the Vice President, Bartlet persists in the hope that inviting Palestinian and Israeli leaders to participate in peace talks will forestall the necessity of a U.S. military retaliation. Even Leo feels that the President should order an attack to make a decisive statement on terrorism. Bartlet's only hope is that a risky secret negotiation will deliver the leader responsible for the bombings into U.S. custody. Meanwhile, Josh hovers worriedly by Donna's bed in a German military hospital. As doctors try to stabilize Donna's deteriorating condition, no one knows whether or not she will suffer brain damage if she survives.

(ABC press release)

"Desperate Housewives," a primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on "happily ever after " -- where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem -- premieres SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2004 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

"Desperate Housewives" stars Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Van De Kamp, Eva Longoria as Gabrielle Solis, James Denton as Mike Delfino, Nicollette Sheridan as Edie Britt, Steven Culp as Rex Van De Kamp, Mark Moses as Paul Young, Ricardo Antonio Chavira as Carlos Solis, Cody Kasch as Zach Young, Andrea Bowen as Julie Mayer, Jesse Metcalfe as John and Brenda Strong as Mary Alice Young.

In the series premiere, "Pilot," looking down on her friends and family isn't a way of life for Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong)... it's a way of death. One day, in her perfect house, in the loveliest of suburbs, Mary Alice ended it all. Now she's taking us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated P.O.V.

Her small circle of girlfriends are wondering why one of their own would do something so rash... and so messy. There's Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the divorcee and single mom who will go to extraordinary lengths for love; Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), the ex-career woman who traded the boardroom for boredom, mixed with moments of sheer panic as the mother of four unmanageable kids; Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), the Martha Stewart on steroids, whose family is about to mutiny; and Gabrielle Solis, the ex-model with everything she's ever wanted - a rich husband, a big house - so what is she doing with John, the 17-year-old gardener (Jesse Metcalfe)? And there are her neighbors, including serial divorcee Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan), whose romantic conquests have everyone buzzing.

Then there are the men: Hunky new neighbor Mike Delfino (James Denton), a supposedly widowed plumber who has Susan and Edie vying for his attention; Rex Van De Kamp (Steven Culp), who's just told Bree he wants a divorce; Gabrielle's better half, Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira), who figures he bought his wife a $15,000 diamond necklace, so she should do whatever he tells her; as for Mary Alice's newly-widowed husband, Paul (Mark Moses), there must be a reason why he's acting so suspiciously - and why he's digging up the pool in the middle of the night!

From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she's planning to share all the delicious secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb.

"Pilot" was written by Marc Cherry. Charles McDougall directed.

Jul 2, 2004 After having shot the first pilot, ABC announced that Lee, Searles and Burke were to be replaced by Brenda Strong, Jesse Metcalfe and Steven Culp, respectively. While Lee was turned down after the producers had got to rethink the character of her role, Mary Alice, Searles was replaced because of the lack of chemistry between him and his onscreen lover, Eva Longoria.

Steven Culp had been the producers first choice for the part as Rex Van De Kamp, but as he had missed a meeting with the ABC executive to complete shooting for another television show, Star Trek: Enterprise, the part had been offered to Burke instead. After the original pilot was filmed, Culp was off the Enterprise cast, and when asked again Culp accepted the part, and Burke was let go.

Jul 1, 2004 Steven has joined the new series "Desperate Housewives" that will start in fall on ABC.

(Entertainment News Wire, by Nellie Andreeva)

Recasting is complete on ABC's new drama "Desperate Housewives."

Brenda Strong, Steven Culp and Jesse Metcalfe have joined the show from Touchstone Television, which chronicles the secret lives of four suburban women (Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross) though the eyes of their dead friend Mary Alice Scott.

Strong, who replaces Cheryl Lee, will narrate the series as Scott and will make guest appearances in flashbacks.

Culp, who steps in for Michael Reilly Burke, will play the husband of Cross' character.

Metcalfe will play a young gardener who works for a rich couple and has an affair with the wife (Longoria). The role was originally played by Kyle Searles.

The scenes in the pilot featuring Strong, Culp and Metcalfe's characters will be reshot.

Culp, whose credits include "Thirteen Days" and "Nurse Betty," will next be seen in indie "The Sisters."

May 23, 2004 (scifi2k.com)

This week Steven Culp, a wonderful television character actor died on two shows this week. That means he lost both acting gigs as well.

On JAG he played the CIA agent, Clayton Webb, who died while on assignment. He never appeared in the episode, only in flashbacks.

His Enterprise death was a bit graphic as we saw the man take the injury that killed him. Culp joined the series this season as Major Hayes.

From TVGuide.com:

There clearly has been life after Aaron Sorkin for the series, both commercially (ratings have been up) and creatively, as executive producer John Wells has quickened the storytelling pace. And if the dialogue doesn't quite have that the snappy Sorkin sound, it's still literate and entertaining. A case in point is this crackling episode in which a budget impasse with Haffley (Steven Culp) leads to a government shutdown. "If we don't end it now, it'll be a referendum on the Bartlet presidency," Toby warns. That seems to be just what Bartlet (Martin Sheen) wants, even though it's a referendum he's losing.

As the clock ticks on a new budget, hard-charging Angela (Michael Hyatt) faces a mighty challenge as she tries to hammer out an agreement that could compromise Bartlet's campaign promises. But the President is also focused on a crucial national TV interview that Zoey (Elisabeth Moss) has agreed to tape with a well-known newswoman (Kathrin Lautner) with a knack for exposing raw emotions.

Question: Are Steven Culp and Robert Culp related? - Jennifer

Flickchick: No, but you're far from the first to wonder. Steven Culp has said in interviews that early in his career, when he was working on the daytime soap opera One Life to Live, he discovered that the publicity department was about to send out a press kit erroneously identifying him as the son of Robert Culp, star of TV's I Spy.

Steven was born in La Jolla, Calif., and raised in Virginia Beach after his parents' divorce; both his father and his step-father were in the Navy.

Robert Culp, 72, has six children - three sons, whose names all begin with "J" and three daughters.

Big night for 'Days': Greenwood ruins million-dollar shot

HOLLYWOOD -- Resorting to gallows humor was the way the cast kept its energy high, confessed star Steven Culp at the preem of New Line's "Thirteen Days" on Tuesday at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood.

Head prankster and star Bruce Greenwood related one of the practical jokes he played on helmer Roger Donaldson.

"When Kevin (Costner) is in front of the White House during the big demonstration scene, I put on some regular clothes and stood in the crowd and kept walking back and forth with a sign saying 'Send the Gonzalez kid back to Cuba,' " Greenwood said. "They printed the shot, and everyone except Roger had seen it. When he saw it he screamed, 'Are you out of your mind, this is a million-dollar shot!' "

On a more serious note, Costner talked about how a historical pic will play with the generation of the presidential recount.

"Some people call it arrogance, or pettiness, but the code I have for choosing a movie is I know it will be watched five or 10 years from now," Costner said.

Joining the stars at the presidential-themed after-party at the UCLA Armand Hammer Museum were New Line's Bob Shaye, Michael DeLuca, Rolf Mittweg and Joe Nimziki; Beacon's Armyan Bernstein, Marc Abraham and Thomas Bliss; producer Peter Almond; and guests Lawrence Bender, Joely Fisher, Eriq LaSalle, Sam Neill, Erik Palladino and Alan Thicke.

Mary Tyler Moore Will Portray Mrs. Lincoln

Mary Tyler Moore says she doesn't see how she could be seen in the spring 1988 miniseries planned of "The Magnificent Ambersons" because, beginning in October, she'll be shooting a different miniseries down in Richmond, Va.

Already, Mary has begun diction lessons with a vocal coach to get her Kentucky accent just right in order to portray Mary Todd Lincoln in NBC's coming four-hour epic, "The Story of Abrahams Lincoln." (This is based on "Lincoln," the marvelous novel by Gore Vidal.)

Sam Waterston is going to play the president, and Mary quips that she and Sam "are getting to be the Fred and Ginger of dramas. We already did two movies together - "'Finnegan Begin Again' and 'Just Between Friends.'"

Anyway, back to the original idea that Mary also would play the lead in "The Magnificent Ambersons." Maybe it's just that somebody up there at CBS and RKO want Mary for the part. Nobody's asked her yet, but she is definitely listed on a secret casting sheet.

Mtm As Mtl On Nbc

The normally funny Mary Tyler Moore will portray the distinctly not amusing Mary Todd Lincoln in an adaptation of Gore Vidal's fact-based novel "Lincoln," planned as a four-hour mini for NBC next season. Sam Waterston will play the lanky Abe.

Lensing is set to begin late next month, most likely in Richmond, Va. "We did extensive research and wanted a place that doesn't necessarily look like a back lot," said Bob Christiansen, who will produce with Rick Rosenberg for exec producers Sheldon Pincheck and Bill Finnegan. Lamont Johnson will direct the screenplay by Ernest Kinoy.

Like the book, the film begins when the newly elected pres arrives in D.C. and continues through his assassination. But, according to Christiansen, it will focus "much more on the personal life in the White House than has been seen in the past."

Christiansen acknowledged the casting might seem unusual--particularly the normally funny Moore--but believes it will work. She and Waterston have co-starred before in "Finnegan, Begin Again" and "First You Cry" for TV and the feature "Just Between Friends."
