News Briefs: Summer Glau Is Returning to Alphas

SUMMER GLAU NEWS

... OMG did someone say Summer Glau? The sci-fi starlet will return to Syfy's Alphas in Season 2, to reprise her role as Skylar Adams, an Alpha who's a whiz with electronics. She appeared in one episode of the first season, and her character was last seen running away from authorities after helping out the team. Also appearing in Season 2 will be Sean Astin, C. Thomas Howell, and Lauren Holly. Note: Because she's a guest star, the Summer Glau Curse (which DOESN'T ACTUALLY EXIST) does not apply. [Syfy via press release]


CASTING NEWS

... ABC's Once Upon a Time has grabbed two cool actresses for Season 2. Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) is Asian and super hot, so obviously she's going to play Mulan. She'll be around on a recurring basis. Also joining the cast will be Sarah Bolger (The Tudors), who will take on the role of Sleeping Beauty. Bolger was one of the daughters in 2002's In America, a movie that always reduces me to a blubbering mess because I'm sensitive. Please don't tell anyone that! It would be embarrassing if that information got out into the public! [EW / Deadline Hollywood]

... Brit whatever-she-is (singer? Hostess? Actress? Attention seeker?) Cheryl Cole has booked an appearance on Glee, according to reports. There are no details on her role yet. Not like I would have cared enough to tell you anyway. [Marie Claire UK]

... Ringer's Kristoffer Polaha will give another new show a shot next season. He'll join CBS's streetwise legal drama Made in Jersey this fall, where he'll play an elite associate at the firm where the show takes place. Polaha's resume includes Ringer, Life Unexpected, Miss/Guided, and Valentine, so I'm sure Made in Jersey will last at least five episodes. [TV Line]


REALITY RESCHEDULING

... You've been waiting for the CBS dating show 3 forever now! Well, you'll have to wait a little longer. CBS has pushed back the premiere of the show, which follows three ladies as they test out the dating scene, to July 29 so as not to compete with the finale of The Bachelorette. [Washington Post]

... Fox's new dating show Take Me Out has been kicked out of any real time slot after crummy ratings. Starting July 12, the George Lopez-hosted reality lump of garbage will no longer air on Thursdays and will die off on Saturdays beginning that same week. How could this show not have worked!? I'm shocked, I tell you. [TV Guide]

When will Summer Glau be on Alphas? I watched two episodes and did not see her!

i like that most articles announcing Alphas season two emphasize Summer Glau's return for three episodes (it also happened, to a lesser extent though, when the guest star lineup for season one was announced).
Reply

Not only was Summer Glau terrific in her first season episode but this episode was a game-changer; Skylar Adams, the character played by Summer Glau, opened Dr Rosen'ss eyes about the fact that the Alpha team were just "governement flunkies" and led to Rosen stand up against his superior.



Add to that the ratings bump registerred when Summer Glau guest starred and it's no wonder Alphas's producers called her for another three episodes.

Also just read the article again and Tim clearly states that the Curse doesn't exist. So why are you getting your panties in a bunch....just drop it Errol.

People with common-sense like you and me know that curses don't exist but M. Tim Surette find every excuse to (not-so subtly) create uncertainty by finding a way to mention it in its articles : writing " Because she's a guest star, the Summer Glau Curse does not apply" is a way to encourage the idiots, that is hardly minimized by the mention "(which DOESN'T ACTUALLY EXIST)".

Don't get me wrong, i don't care about trolls and idiots as individuals and the general rule "Don't feed the trolls" apply in thoses cases; but that a columnist mention deliberately the SGC in his articles is a call to stupidity and a professional mistake : THIS is what i'm ranting about (mostly).

I wish someone would cast Summer in a non-SciFi/Fantasy show, I think she's a good actress.



I enjoyed Sarah Bolger from The Tudors, so hoping she'll be great as Sleeping Beauty.
Reply

Well, she was a guest star for maybe 1/2 or 1/3 of a season of "The Unit"



That was non-scifi-fi and non-fantasy. It was fiction, but was more realistic / grounded than her other shows. She also acted NORMAL on the show (which is rare) though her character eventually became a bad person that slept around.

I'm simply ranting at those idiots (first being M. Tim Surette) who keep posting comments about a non-existing SGC; this is not funny and an insult to intelligence.



Of course 95% of tv.com readers knows that but then why are these comments not moderated instead of polluting this thread and generate true but ultimately useless comments from genuine and honest commenters.



Event sites that encourages freedom of speech like Reddit have rules and are moderated; i suggest tv.com does the same. Then i could disappear and not annoy everyone here anymore.

Don't blame Summer because she chooses to take difficult roles in daring series that would never appeal to the mass viewing audience no matter what.

No only is beautiful, an incredibly talented dancer, and a fine actor, she's also about more than showing skin to make her way in an overtly sexist industry that treats young pretty girls like daily specials.

I will also support the projects in which she is involved!

95% of tv.com commenters are interested by tv news and deserve respect (those who like Summer Glau as well as those who doesn't btw).



Letting a bunch of idiots (encouraged by M.Tim Surette) post offensive and ungrounded comments is demeaning and not worthy of a serious tv site. But i guess witty comments needs talent (not that i have some).

I wouldn't call it a curse, so much as 'Summer appears on stuff, stuff still goes away.' It might be that the people who worship this odd-looking chick aren't enough to keep her niche shows going. I don't mind Alphas, but it's nothing great (a bit better than Mutant X and Warehouse 13, much better than Falling Skies), and I feel the same about her.



I did think Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles was a big loss, but I wouldn't have minded someone else play the T-X. I guess I came here to say 'ehh.'

A huge thank you to you sir!



Moments ago, some wanted to make me sound like a troll but you brushed that accusation aside with your own comment :-)

You're welcome. If you're who I remember (I'd hate to think there are two of you), you're not a troll; you're that Summer Glau fanboy nearing psychotic proportions. Chances are, Summer knows of you and hopes to God that she never meets you.



You (and Tim's cowardly bosses) may have stopped Tim from criticizing the woman in any way (fair or not), but I don't have such a problem. She's not all that. She's an okay actress that looks like a cross between a hot chick and an ostrich. Maybe an emu. Whatever-large-flightless-bird with an odd head and eyes.



As for the 'curse,' the name of the phenomenon doesn't matter nearly as much as the end result. If I were running a sci-fi show that could get cancelled at any time, I'd probably steer clear of her. The idea of the curse is heavily in the air, perception can easily become too much of the rule.



Anyway, by all means, spam the post count with things that could've been said in one post (while you last). But when readers read what guys like you have to say about her, they'll also read what guys like me say.

Whereas Syfy press release include the whole guest lineup for the second season of Alphas, new and returning guest stars as well, M. Tim Surette deliberately decided to focus on Summer Glau, hence the title and the accompagnying head picture.



I love that, even if the comment section is full of comments from immature people trying to sound cool by repeating an old, ungrounded, bad joke. Come on, bring on the comments about the SGC, this way this article will have a chance to top the "Most commented posts" widget on the left and hopefully more people will watch the show when it premieres on Syfy on Monday, July 23 at 10pm ET/PT.

I have mixed feelings about Summer Glau's three episodes appearance : on one side, i'm glad that Summer is coming back for 3 episodes but on the other side i'm wonder if her appearance in yet another sci-fi show will put a halt to her readyness to extend her range of roles.



I certainly don't want her to give up and say : "well, people like me in scifi roles, then i should give her what they want and stay in the genre".



Anyone has an opinion?

Summer Glau fit in very will with the cast of Alphas and I'm looking forward to her reprising her role from last season.



Her season one episode was a game-changer; for the fist time, Dr Rosen decided to stand against his superiors by letting Skylar go free at the end of the episode. It foreshadowed Dr Rosen 's decision to make the existence of the alphas public in last episode.

If such thing as a curse existed, do you really think showrunners would take the risk to hire Summer Glau, just sayin :)

Ugh... Summer Glau. They couldn't have gotten any other untalented pointless piece of nerd ass for Alphas? Hopefully nothing important happens in that episode, because I will not be recording it.

I'm from a planet where people recognize Glau as a hot piece of ass and nothing more. I scrolled past this comment below days ago, "She is cute, has nice legs, but can't act worth a damn." and it just proves that guys like her because she's hot and most know she is completely talentless. Christ, a friend of mine said he'd fuck her even if she was wearing a parka and ski mask, but admitted she can't act worth a good goddamn, though it didn't stop him from watching everything she was in. So that's the world I live in. Anything else is a fantasy world, where people delude themselves into thinking she's the complete package.

Noooo! Summer Glau is trying to kill Alphas! 2 episodes is all it takes. I heard from my cousin's friend once that her boyfriend watched 2 episodes of Sarah Chronicles back to back and Fox canceled HIM! Just the threat of her returning to "Chuck" got it canceled. My buddy's teacher said that it was a rerun of her episode of Angel which got that show canceled.





Really, Fox chose "The Choice" over "Take Me Out"??? Take Me Out was garbage, but at least it was fun garbage. The Choice is just unwatchably bad, like 4 guys choosing prostitutes at a low-rent whorehouse.

Considering last time I made a joke about TV.com fave Summer Glau I got a rather humorless and completely pointless response from some douch, this time I'll just say I love Summer Glau and I hope that her Alpha's episodes are the best yet.



A note on the Summer Glau Curse: It doesn't exist. As much as I enjoy joking about it (apparently to the unreasonable annoyance of others) I have to say that it's probably down to Summer being perfect for those quirky roles in risky sci-fi shows that inevitably don't get the following they deserve and end up getting cancelled by the network. If she is cursed with anything then it's an incredibly good taste in TV shows.

Exactly. The curse is because she takes riskier and edgy shows. You'd never seen her doing a comedy with Charlie Sheen.

Didn't Angel get cancelled after several seasons and Chuck made it amazingly to five. Dollhouse was toast before she got there because only the first few episodes were bad but it finished strong with Summer. Firefly getting cancelled nearly started a revolution. The 4400 got several seasons and Alpha's is still on. I thought cancelling Terminator was also stupid, so WHAT CURSE. She's not Ted McGinley for god's sake...

I hate to be the one to rain on the Fanboy parade, BUT...so many starring roles in so many cancelled shows does not look good on one's resume. Could be why she only gets work through SyFy. She is cute, has nice legs, but can't act worth a damn haha. Here come the fanboys.

No wonder Summer is coming back in Alphas after the open ending of her episode in season 1. But a three episode arc wasn't expected, this is great news!



If you look at the ratings for Alphas in season one, you'll notice that the trend was downward until Summer Glau appeared in episode 1.07 and the episode registered a ratings bump.



In other words, Summer Glau may have helped Alphas's renewal for a second season; it's no coincidence that Sumer Glau is the only guest star from the first season to come back in season two and for a three episodes arc on top of that.
