Nothing exciting, I'm afraid.  The clue was "Actor Astin."  The answer "Sean."  The crossword puzzles in TV Guide are not challenging.

I wonder if it will be the same stories as have been in Meerkat Manor.

Actors don't mind the publicity;  look at how many millions of Americans buy TV Guide & do the crosswords.    lol

GOod news, via Yeux. Sean's series Jeremiah is going to syndication! This means almost everyone will get the chance to see it!

This one is a MUST see! Run, don't walk to you tv set! This is one of Sean's strongest performances and most memorable characters. DO NOT MISS THIS!!!!!!

I'll update when I hear anything datewise.

A couple of other bits. A new CBS reality series "Kids' Nation" is likened to  Sean's movie White Water Summer in this blurb.

Everyone up in arms about Kid Nation needs to relax for a second.  The fact is it was irresponsible of CBS to create and produce the show the way they did, and it was at least as irresponsible of the parents who sent their kids packing (which reminds me of a movie with Kevin Bacon called White Water Summer, co-starring Sean Astin.  Thereís a scene when Bacon recruits Astinís parents to let their son join him at camp, and Astin just knows the guy isnít right.  Thatís how I imagine it going for some of the kids involved with CBS

The full article is here:

http://www.dmwmedia.com/news/2007/08/29/kid-nation-the-sordid-reality-of-reality-television

And mention is made of the release of The Final Season one this site.

http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2007/08/30/entertainment/movies/11_58_338_29_07.txt

We leave tomorrow for our Labor Day weekend trip so I'll catach you when I get back on Monday.

have a great holiday all!

Hugs,
Rach - who needs to go pack now...

I can't wait to see it, I guess this means it'll be on a regular TV station, not just on cable, right? 

The thing with Kids Nation is that although the producers needed to have parental consent, a lot of parents don't always act in their children's best interest.  I haven't seen the show though so maybe it's won't be as bad as it sounds.  I'm eager for any news about TFS too.

You're right, Romeny. A lot of parents DON'T act in their children's best interest, which really sad. I wonder about people's priorities sometimes. *shakes head

Anyway, I am at my daughter's in Atlanta and am using her computer so please forgive me for not having all my resources at hand. I do have a bit of Sean news, and I have to admit that I'm excited about it.

Apparently, Sean has changed talent agencies, ie, he has a new agent. I am HOPING this is going to help him get more and better parts than some of the things he has had recently, like that dreadful role on "My Name is Earl". (Sorry to any Earl fans out there.) This new agency, called "Fortitude", claims to be something revolutionary in the control the actor has over the parts he or she applies for. I'm not EXACTLY sure what that means, but it certainly sounds like it could be good for Sean. Maybe we can see him back in some of the dramatic roles in which he shines. I have my fingers crossed.

I'm sorry I can't post the links to these articles (I saw several of them) but I don't have easy access on this computer.

Everything looks like a go for the release of "Borderland" this month and "The Final Season" in mid-October.


Have a happy Labor Day!

Hugs,
Rach

I really can't say for sure. They all change agents now and then. All I know is that *I* haven't been happy with some of the roles Sean has done over the last couple of years. He has done some EXCELLENT things, but he has also done some things that *I* thought were beneath him.

This new company he has signed with takes a new approach to representation, or so the articles say, letting the actor become more involved in his or her career. I know this is right up Sean's alley. He likes to be involved and is a self-admitted control freak. LOL

But we love him for it! LOL

Oh, and the pet calendar I reported earlier that Sean would appear in with one of his pets will feature Sean with his Chinchilla, Luigi.

I knew he had cats, a dog, etc, but I had no idea that he also had a chinchilla.

Hugs,
Rach

Uhmm, could be, but not necessarily.  More likely it will be on one of the basic cable channels like TBS, TNT, USA, A&E for example.  These are the stations everyone who has cable gets with even the least expensive package.  They air a lot of syndicated shows.  I don't think the major broadcast networks do much with syndication anymore.

I don't know what channels will buy it, but I DO know that the SciFi Channel was interested at one time. Sean is NOT in the first season of the show, but that is STILL worth watching.

I'm kind of surprised it even qualifies for syndication since there are only two seasons worth of episodes. I thought you had to have three seasons, but I'm very glad I was wrong!

Every Sean fan, or even slightly interested person, should SEE THIS!
It's some of the best tv ever made!

Hugs,
Rach

Howdy hey, everyone!  I had to come and get updated on the Sean news.  Thanks so much, Rach for the updates!

Kid Nation? Good heavens....I am still scratching my head over this one. I am refraining from speaking my mind on this one.  All I will say is geezzzz...what next? Gladiators? 

It is really neat that Jeremiah will be syndicated. I didn't know anything about it until I found the Sean thread...and by that time it was WAY too late. Only two seasons exist? I wonder if it will be more popular now. Wouldn't that be a hoot? Just imagine if the popularity took off with this syndication. 

Very interesting that Sean changed agents...it will be interested to see where he goes now.

Toodles!

I hope the agent change will mean that we will see MORE of our favorite guy! Obviously he was unhappy with his former representation and I can't say  I blame him. Hopefully, we'll get larger doses of Seanness and more frequent ones soon.

While I was gone, I also received a notice that the new Goonies movie will be animated. At least this is the latest consideration. I assume this means that Sean will be doing the voice of the adult Mikey, but that is just my speculation.

Here's the link:

Wow, that is news, I wonder why they'd make a change like that!  If that's true, they really could use any actor, not necessarily the ones that played in the previous movie.  Maybe they like the idea of another Goonies and want to put the money in updated graphics and technology instead of actor salaries.  I'd rather see a real person sequel.
