Flashpoint Spoilers!

Enrico Colantoni Talks Emotional Side of Flashpoint

by Gina DiNunno TV Guide

Enrico Colantoni, Flashpoint

CBS’ hit series Flashpoint (Fridays at 9 pm/ET), which follows the lives of elite cops within the Strategic Response Unit, has returned for its second season after debuting with strong Friday-night ratings. Enrico Colantoni, who plays the SRU’s Sgt. Gregory Parker, tells us what distinguishes his series, teases upcoming storylines and reveals what goes on when the cameras aren’t rolling. Plus, Veronica Mars‘ dad dishes about the upcoming movie. How does Flashpoint differ from other law enforcement shows?
Enrico Colantoni: There’s a heightened adrenal rush and sentimental experience that has little to do with cops and robbers. It has more to do with watching our characters struggle with a particular situation and how that affects them directly. I find myself quite moved by the human aspect in our scripts that show what these guys are going through and how much they care. Every week we deal with people having a bad day and it’s hard not to feel for them. You guys tackle some extreme storylines. What situations can we expect in upcoming episodes?
Colantoni: Friday’s episode is about the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder on police officers. Then we’re going to deal with some revenge situations that actually are specifically related to what happened during the pilot episode of last season. Recently, we’ve been handling a lot of domestic situations that vary in different locales — like the winter. [Laughs] People freak out over the snow! It just makes them do crazy things. Anything exciting coming up for Sgt. Parker?
Colantoni: I wish I knew! What I anticipate is maybe a little about what his love life would be like. He’s so committed to his job, his team and these people. I think it would be difficult to watch him in a social environment because he’d probably fail miserably. So I hope we get to watch him struggle with that and trying to find a semblance of normalcy. Television is a tough market in terms of cancelations. How does it feel knowing you’re show does so well?
Colantoni: I’m just relieved we’re not dipping that much from Ghost Whisperer and Numbers. And we just found out that we beat Friday Night Lights‘ premiere. It was like, wow, people are intentionally sticking with us, and that’s always nice. What’s it like on set when the cameras aren’t rolling?
Colantoni: Imagine us filming the show inside a male locker room — that’s how I’d describe it. Hugh and I create this whole environment where there’s a lot of yelling, name-calling and good guy banter. And poor Amy Jo — she sort of has to tolerate it. Last season she was pregnant most of the time, so she didn’t really have the energy to reprimand us! But the context of the whole day is a lot of fun. It’s been reported that Rob Thomas wants to make a Veronica Mars movie. Would you want to resurrect your role as Keith Mars?
Colantoni: Uh, yeah! I keep hearing about it. It’d be a much better sense of closure. Absolutely! So many people were disappointed, including me, that we didn’t get to tie a little bow around that show. I wonder who’s going to play me in the movie? [Laughs] Paul Giamatti as Keith Mars!

Smallville Spoilers: Lana’s Farewell!

Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk Teases a Tear-filled Farewell

by Matt Mitovich TV Guide

Kristin Kreuk with Tom Welling, Smallville

“A lot of tears” is what Kristin Kreuk promises when Lana Lang bids the CW’s Smallville (if not Smallville, Kansas) a final farewell. As the original cast member’s final three episodes unspool, welcomed the chance to chat with Kreuk about Lana’s super secrets, her big-screen butt-kicking, and the change that she hopes to bring to the world — one small step at a time. (Smallville airs Thursdays at 8 pm/ET.) Word has it that Lana might have left town last spring under rather different circumstances than she led us to believe. True?
Kristin Kreuk:
Very true. There’s a lot of stuff going on with Lana that nobody knows except for her. The audience will slowly begin to understand as my remaining episodes air. You’ll find out why she returned … and why she was gone in the first place. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the shock factor?
It’s Smallville, so I’d say a 7.5. Considering there are always weird creatures on the show…. [Laughs] I saw an interview where you said that Lana will get “a beautiful sendoff.” Why does that sound like a teary deathbed scene to me?
I don’t know what I’m allowed to say about anything, but … there are a lot of tears. But I don’t know if there was a bed involved in any way! What was it like reuniting with Tom Welling for this arc? Did your old shorthand just pick up right away?
Yeah, pretty much. Tom and I have been working together for a long time and I adore him. We had a really great time. How was it being directed in the episode airing Jan. 29 by Allison [Mack, who plays Chloe]?
It was great. Allison is one of my dearest friends in the world, so I was really excited for her. She was wonderful and able to handle what is generally a very stressful situation for most directors with a lot of grace. I really respected her for that. She has never directed anything like Smallville before and she is only 26 years old and a female. That’s really commendable in this industry. Lana’s slightly different look — is that because Kristin has a different look, Kristin wanted a different look, or the producers wanted a different look?
I wanted to cut my hair after I left the show, so I called up the producers and said, “Is that OK?” They were like, “Yeah, totally — it will fit great.” But I cut my hair quite short and everyone liked it except for one individual who has control over most things, so I had to put in extensions which don’t look as good as the short hair or the long hair. They’re somewhere in the middle. It’s fine, though. Before Lana leaves us, will there be any sort of “passing of the baton” with Lois? Will she, like, give Lois her endorsement in pursuing something with Clark?
No, Erica [Durance, Lois] and I never really get the opportunity to work together, and Lois is not in any of the episodes that Lana’s in. They don’t have any interaction. Lana doesn’t discuss her…. It just doesn’t happen. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, starring Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li — are you excited to see that hit theaters on Feb. 27?
I am! I haven’t seen a cut yet, so I’m interested to see how it all turned out. It was a really great experience. I know you had some martial arts training going in, but was there a cool, new trick you learned? A flying roundhouse perhaps?
Nothing that I could whip out on the street, but all of my wire work skills are much better than they ever used to be! And my ability to learn any martial arts moves has increased a lot. Any nasty bruises to show for it all?
Yeah, I got a lot of bruises, and I hit my head a few times, but nothing too serious. Lastly, tell me about this retreat/contest you’re organizing through Girls by Design. I was inspired just reading about it.
My company with my business partner, Girls by Design, will be a social network for teen girls, and it will be centered on self esteem-building and project creation. And my friend Tami has Time Out Retreat, which she started just before her mother passed away from cancer, and is about empowering people to understand that they can heal themselves in many ways. We meshed her concept with Girls by Design and created something that would encourage girls to intersect and look at their lives in a holistic way. It’ll be fun, bringing girls from different backgrounds and all over the Los Angeles area to a beautiful location, and have speakers to inspire them. As part of the contest, girls have to answer the question, “How do you hope to see the world change in your lifetime?” Not to get all Barbara Walters on you, but how do you hope to see the world change in your lifetime?
For me, it’s about building more compassion, and that starts with individuals. We can be really mean, even in little ways. But it all starts with us, how we are with ourselves and then how we treat each other based on that. I know it all sounds really small, but I’m not a politician and I’m not able to create policy. So I really do think one of the most powerful things we can do as individuals is be kind with ourselves and kind with each other. Do you believe that Barack Obama entering the office of president will bring about some sort of this type of change you’re talking about?
I really hope so. I’m Canadian, but I have been surprisingly emotional about the whole thing. I was like, “What’s this?!” I don’t normally feel this involved. But it’s amazing. Even if it’s simply having an African-American man in power, that’s a beautiful thing for young people to see and experience. It’s amazing.
