I got tired of writing all my html by hand and I got tired of not being able to tag posts.
if you were using Change Detection to follow this page, you haven't been getting any updates since I moved.
See the next post (below) for where this part of the page now lives.
If you really were using Change Detection to keep up with this page, email me so I can take a head count. I probably have no idea you are out there. (except for you, Janice :-) )

Site News - Attempting a slight move

I've moved this frame into blogger.

Not sure yet if it will work out, but I wanted to be able to tag (and write fewer links by hand)

The top and side frames have not moved (or been updated) and using should get you to the site as always.

Archived pitas news pages for Bakulanews can be reached from the bottom link on the blogger page. There's an "index."

Live -- Scott & Chelsea taping PBS special Thursday 8/20 in LA

Scott and Chelsea will be taping a PBS special tomorrow in LA.
that's as far as I've gotten, but most PBS specials do end up on PBS (that thing Roxann Dawson did about directing Enterprise never did, but it probably wasn't a special) so, if their part doesn't get cut, we will at least get to see it on TV.
If you must be there in person, you've probably already been to the SBFF. The link I followed lead me to something about bras (but then, I'm not that motivated).

Movies - Informant Description

[Joel] McHale describes the "The Informant," as "a true story about this lunatic, very successful businessman who went undercover and spied on his own company and he was bipolar. He stole what they believe is around 11 million dollars from the company, and that is just the tip of the iceberg," he says. "Me and Scott Bakula, from "Quantum Leap" are FBI agents following his case. It is a very dark comedy."

Comment -- Fedak on Scott

the table read for the finale, a mental picture for you from Chris Fedak via SciFi Wire
For Fedak, there was one specific moment that resonated with him, and it came during a table reading. "I sat down at the table with the cast of that episode, and I just shook my head," he said. "I felt like, for that episode, we hired most of Hollywood. I had Bruce Boxleitner, Morgan Fairchild, Scott Bakula, Chevy Chase and our cast. I mean, our fantastic, wonderful cast, and Matt Bomer as well, and I immediately demanded that we have a photograph taken, because it's something that, actually, ... [I knew] this would be one of my favorite moments, this cast read-through. And they killed. They were wonderful. They were wonderful just reading the script, and they were just as wonderful on screen.

Quotes -- from the Upfronts

BEAM ME UP, SCOTT One of the most popular expressions among TV executives this week was “relatable,” meaning that average viewers could and would relate to the characters and premises of new series. It is a quality highly prized because its absence often means a show fails to engage enough viewers.

The jargon was so prevalent that even the actors noticed. At the Turner presentation, Scott Bakula, brought out on stage to promote a new TNT series, “Men of a Certain Age,” said: “I’ve done a lot of relatable shows. Who hasn’t dealt with time machines and horny Klingons?” The references were to two of his previous series, “Quantum Leap” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

Premiere date has been moved from January back to December, now.

Live --Screening, NYC this weekend

Good morning New York!

someone on Alan's blog passed this along from the source he cites

Here's how the NYCC describes the "Chuck" panel, 11:15am Sunday:

Chuck co-creator/executive producer Josh Schwartz and co-creator Chris Fedak, along with cast member Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker), make their first appearance at New York Comic Con for a Q&A to discuss the second season of the popular action-comedy and to screen an extended trailer created especially for the NYCC audience. All of the footage is from the second half of the season and will be seen here for the first time. This glimpse into the future of Chuck will include the likes of Chevy Chase and Scott Bakula, lots of action, a bit of romance and maybe a few other surprises. Airing Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC, the one-hour series stars Zachary Levi as Chuck Bartowski, an everyman whose life is thrown into disarray after his friend, a CIA agent, sends him an e-mail that results in the world's secrets being embedded in his mind. Overnight, this mild-mannered computer genius has a new career as the government's most vital secret agent.

It's a really good ep where Chuck returns to Stanford, whence he was kicked out 5 years before (and now works in the Nerd Herd at the Buy More instead of being the next Bill Gates (oh and his girlfriend dumped him too, but more on that later)) and finds out... stuff. :-)

Press -- NBC likes Scott

Consistently recognized for his stellar work across a variety of media, versatile Hollywood everyman Bakula continues to remain popular among his acting peers and fans alike. On tap are a feature film, a new television series, and a couple of guest spots. He stars opposite Matt Damon in the Warner Bros film "The Informant," based on the true story of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history. Helmed by Steven Soderbergh, the film will hit theaters September 2009.

TV -- More Chuck, concerning recurrence

Schwartz said Bakula would be in three episodes this season, but he certainly could end up appearing in more, adding, "This is Chuck's dad. We may always keep him! The great thing about Scott ... that we're going to ask him to do... is to be able to do comedy, drama, action, and some real pathos, so he's a guy who can really do it all, and who you believe as Chuck and Ellie's dad."

Press -- someone likes Scott

from Entertainment Weekly
Ray Romano (but more importantly, Scott Bakula) returns to TV!

Jan 13, 2009, 03:56 PM | by Mandi Bierly

Categories: Deals, Television, Waiting

TNT has picked up 10 episodes of Ray Romano's "midlife crisis drama" Men of a Certain Age. While I'm excited to see Ray back on TV -- if you're not an Everybody Loves Raymond fan, it's because you never saw it -- I'm even more psyched for a weekly dose of Scott Bakula, who'll costar with Romano and Andre Braugher as aging college buddies.

I've always been honest about my love for Bakula (pictured, near left), whether I was searching for that clip of him seducing Candice Bergen on Murphy Brown last year (watch it below), or chatting with Star Trek: Enterprise exec producer Brannon Braga about what would become their final season in 2004:

Me: I just watched the last three episodes of season 3, so hopefully I'll sound somewhat intelligent as we talk about season 4.
Braga: You're not a Star Trek fan, are you?
Me: I'm not. But I tried to be prepared, and I enjoyed the shot of Scott Bakula shirtless very much.
Braga: We always try to get that in there. Look, the guy's got a great body, and we definitely get him topless as much as we can. But it was not a conscious effort in the last three episodes.

Who else loves Scott Bakula? (And which episodes of Enterprise do I need to be watching? You know the kind I'd like...)

TV -- More MOCA, from Variety

TNT greenlights Ray Romano series
'Men of Certain Age' added to original slate

After locking down Jerry Bruckheimer and Jada Pinkett Smith last week, TNT has put Ray Romano into its burgeoning original-programming slate.

The cabler has added an eighth hourlong to its series slate, greenlighting Ray Romano-produced character drama "Men of a Certain Age."

Series stars Romano alongside Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula, and is focused on three fortysomething college buddies who are each coming to terms with a midlife that doesn't live up to their previous expectations.

Series, from TNT Original Prods., was created by Romano and Mike Royce ("Everybody Loves Raymond"), who will serve as showrunner. Romano and Royce also hold the title of exec producer, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman.

Scott Winant helmed the pilot. TNT has placed a 10-episode order.

"The show isn't ever going to be weighty tome," said Royce, who calls his series a "dramedy." "We're really just trying to write out of our own experience and make the show relatable."

According to Royce, TNT is targeting a January 2010 premiere. A production start date has not been set.

Series is the third pilot in the past week to be greenlit by TNT, with the cabler announcing 10-episode orders for hospital drama "Time Heals," starring Pinkett Smith, and Bruckheimer-produced cop show "The Line," starring Dylan McDermott.

Under the direction of newly upped original programming topper Michael Wright, the Turner cable net has signaled its intention to program as many as three nights a week with original dramas in 2006.

The pickup season at TNT continues with a series order for Ray Romano's midlife crisis drama "Men of a Certain Age."

"Men," which marks Romano's first series since the Emmy-winning CBS comedy "Everybody Loves Raymond," has been picked up for 10 episodes to premiere later this year.

Tales - from Scott's 2008 Trek Con appearance

from CATATTACK'S blog
During the break after the charity breakfast, we sat with two people at a table, enjoying another muffin from the buffet and in front of a massive photo op line for Kate Mulgrew. We mused whether part of the line was Scott Bakula. "I don't think so," said one of the women, showing us her little Janeway lavalliere. "I think he's stuck up." I wondered how she thought that since Scott hadn't made many public appearances, but there was no telling. The other woman was a little older, from Australia, and was out of her mind with joy that she ws going to meet Scott because she had a photo op ticket with him. Someone from Creation announced the formation of a new line, just for Scott, and only Debbie heard it. She told the Aussie, and she ran over to be among the first in line.

I went out to the restroom after that, and found the Bakula photo op line to be almost past the convention center itself. Wow....

The room warmed up for Scott Bakula. The seats weren't packed, but when we left five minutes before he stopped speaking, we noticed a good hundred people standing in the back, in the side aisles, all watching him. We would have left sooner, in fact that was the plan, but he was so interesting to listen to.

Scott's talk was a mixture of reminiscences, chatting with the fans, and refusing to talk much about Quantum Leap ("because this is a Star Trek convention") and then still talking about it a little. Oh, and singing. He told us he's taking voice lessons weekly, and when someone would ask him about a singing role he's been in, he'd sing a little from it.

He's been very busy, mostly on stage. "I just finished a Stephen Soderberg film starring Matt Damon. And I have a new TNT show shooting tomorrow, a pilot, with Ray Romano and Andre Braugher. If Ray and Andre can pull their weight," he said wryly, "it might go on the air."

He finally answered a question about Quantum Leap: "My costar was really troublesome. I never got to do anything different. I had a lot of days off." All of those are jokes and exactly the opposite of what happened.

Labor -- Scott's words

Sarah found this today, re: Scott's running for the National Board of SAG
Candidate #74 for Screen Actors Guild Hollywood Board of Directors

Our business works most successfully through collaboration and partnership. I am running because I believe in fairness, in union actors working together. For years I have gone to work, taking for granted that my rights were protected by SAG and that producers were honoring those rights. I am grateful for those jobs and the years of union protection. Having produced several projects, I appreciate what it takes and the challenges. I am not up to speed on all issues. I have a lot to learn, but I think being a clean slate works to my advantage.
thanks Sarah

Labor News -- Scott on the Ballot (updated Saturday afternoon)

According to this article in the LA Times, Scott's name is included in a slate of candidates for "an upcoming board election" in the Screen Actors Guild, as a part of a group called "Membership First."

SAG is currently either negotiating or not negotiating (no one really knows) with the AMPTP for a new contract. Their old contract expired June 30.

Scott also picketed in support of the WGA (Writers Guild) back in November or December of last year, on Trek Day.

the source is here

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter notes

Among the actors looking to fill Hollywood's 11 national board seats and 22 local seats are 11 new MembershipFirst candidates, including Scott Bakula, Keith Carradine, Charles Shaughnessy and Joely Fisher. Also on the slate are 22 incumbents to the board, including JoBeth Williams, Joe Bologna, and Lainie Kazan.

Bakula joins Soderbergh's 'Informant'
Warner Independent thriller stars Matt Damon

Scott Bakula has scored the second lead role opposite Matt Damon in "The Informant," Steven Soderbergh's espionage thriller for Warner Independent.

Bakula will play Brian Shepherd, an FBI agent who exposes an international price-fixing scheme with the help of biochemist Mark Whitacre (Damon). Project is based on a true story; Scott Burns adapted the book by Kurt Eichenwald.

Participant Media and Groundswell are co-producing with WIP. Jennifer Fox and Gregory Jacobs are producing.

Got this link to a review of Dancing in the Dark
Though Bakula is no Fred Astaire, his musical-theater chops are impressive enough. He's got a smooth, masculine presence, and he finds just the right tone for the part. Tony is a mixture of big-star bravado, simmering self-hatred and, underneath it all, the wholesome heart of a decent guy who just wants to do the right thing. Bakula pulls it off with ease.

Off Topic - The SAG petition

As most of you know, we just endured (and actually shall be continuing to endure for about a month more, in the way of no new episodes) the Writers' Strike. Thankfully, David E Kelley zipped off three last scripts before the strike started, and we got to see Scott on Boston Legal. Well...
The Actors Guild (SAG) is next with the contract negotiations (and potential strike). I'm not going to editorialize (much) but there appear to be some actors who believe that not all members of the union should be allowed to vote in the (negotiations?)
They've written a petition and have at least 1000 signatures (ostensibly)from actors, supporting a minimum of acting under SAG contracts having been performed in order to be able to vote (this is for people who are already members of the union, having somehow qualified, and then paid to get in).
You can see it and who signed it here.
Why would this matter to you? Cause Scott didn't sign it.
Good for him.
Thus endeth my editorial.

Experiences - Scott at Paramount

I got this email today
Hi Pamela -

FYI I met Mr. Bakula on the picket line during Star Trek day at Paramount. He was very cool. Many of the actors spent most of their time near the main gate doing interviews, which I'm not denigrating as that has value and it was footage from the main gate that made the local TV news that night. For his part, Scott grabbed a sign and headed off for a gate on the far east side of the lot that he heard could use more people. As a less famous actor also out there supporting the WGA, his gung-ho attitude left a positive impression on me.

TV - Scott does guest spot on Boston Legal

TV Guide has posted an article mentioning Scott's upcoming appearance on Boston Legal.

If that sounds like I already knew about it, well... the source I got it from lists her source as "our friend in LA" and I prefer to use names rather than cutesy little obfuscations. So, here's a source I can quote by name - Michael Ausiello

If you are wondering why Boston Legal is still in production (until the 14th) thank David E Kelley, who, according to this Hollywood Reporter article (thanks to the DEK fanclub mailing list) "published three scripts" a few days before the strike began.

As David E Kelley is my all time favorite writer, and Scott mentioned last May that Boston Legal is, in effect, his favorite show (it was something like: if I don't have time for anything else, gotta have Boston Legal), I'm absolutely thrilled, and I'm betting he's pretty happy about it too.

Ausiello implies that there may be more than one episode, but I haven't heard any independent confirmation to that effect, and as noted, BL will be "down" as of the 14th.

The Futon Critic does not have this episode listed yet, so, stay tuned - probably January.

Apologies for the lateness of this (although tickets are not yet on sale, so you haven't missed anything yet) - according to the newsletter from Ford's Theater and the Washington Post

What: "A Cabaret Evening With Scott Bakula and Friends,"
a cabaret performance
When: January 17 & 18
Where: Harman Performing Arts Center, Washington DC
(for Ford's Theatre)
How much: We don't know yet
Tickets on sale: We don't know that yet, either

We aren't even sure the Washington Post got the dates right, so please don't book any non-refundable flights yet

Article in Washington Post

To keep the public aware that Ford's is only on a break -- [Ford's Producing Director]Tetreault won't know for a while whether the theater will reopen in fall or winter 2008 -- he plans a few other events during the drastically truncated season. "A Cabaret Evening With Scott Bakula and Friends," a benefit performance open to the public, will run Jan. 17-18, 2008, at the Shakespeare Theatre's brand-new Harman Center for the Arts. Bakula headlined in Ford's revival last year of the musical "Shenandoah."

American Body Shop

a reply from DBCTim on the American Body Shop boards re: Scott's episode
The episode was written with him in mind and was sent to him to see if he would be interested. He liked the script and so he agreed to do the show. There was a lot of excitement when he signed on, and that week was one of the funnest to film for sure.

TV - Possible airdate for American Body Shop

The person who answered is projecting Scott's ep for August 19
I'm being told August 19th. The show is not on next Sunday because of the Flavor Flav Roast. But I believe the Scott Bakula episode is the very next week. It is titled "Juicy Lou's Quantum Leap" and it is hilarious. He was amazing to work with and is brilliantly funny and a genuinely great guy. Please let me know how I can get the word out to all the many Scott Bakula fans like yourself. If you have any ideas at all I am glad for the help."

Since it's been a while and the video is selling for $200 *used* -- ION network is airing Mercy Mission, August 31 (see the link on the left side to Scott TV This Month). If you think you don't have ION, as I did - it used to be PAX network. Local channel mapping for ION can be found here. Those are broadcast channel numbers. Where it ends up on your cable system is another story altogether.

Info - The Scott Bakula song

Michael Jones interviews Sunspot and asks the eternal question:

Q: Okay, focusing on one song in particular, as a fan of Mr. Bakula and his work on Quantum Leap, where in the heck did that song come from? I just love it and I'll occasionally find myself humming the damn thing.

A: Lord of Illusions was on cable one day, and this was right before the Star Trek show with him came out and we were all monster fans of Quantum Leap. So we were just wondering whatever happened to Scott because we hadn't seen him in awhile. Plus he seems to embody certain qualities of masculinity that chicks love. He's macho and sensitive, smart but not afraid to take action. He's really Hamlet and Fortinbras rolled into one.

I've posted a mini-guide to No Strings for those of you who didn't get to see it.

It's rather more detailed than some that we've found online and, hopefully, we will be adding to it, if our memories ever return from being Under the Influence of Bakula, as there are some changes, and some other details that I can add.

So... I realize that I haven't posted a single word since I got back from LA (and btw, a rerun of Scott on New Christine is on tonight on CBS - just don't ask me what time: my DVR has been dead since middle of March. If you speak Linux, email me).

The show was awesome and Scott looked great (sounded great too, of course)... and the reports, if there were any, were in the places I previously mentioned (come, join us on the SBRT) and here's a picture of me with Scott this year (it was cold in the theater, and outside in the courtyard, and I'd been up since 3:45am eastern when this pic was taken, around 10:45pm pacific (and when Scott asked why, I didn't tell him). Do I look conscious?

I know there a lot of broken links to Ailsa's Scott site. It was comprehensive and has not been equaled as a synopsis of Scott's career, since it was taken down :-(.

However, almost as good -- and in some ways better -- is Julia's site. While she doesn't (yet?) have a complete history of Scott's life and early theater career, as Ailsa did, she does have a real treasure trove of things Scott, including, but not limited to

  • Scott's movies and TV shows, with screencaps
  • Scott's other TV appearances
  • News archives of recent articles and interviews with Scott, including Shenandoah
  • A guide to Scott's music, including lyrics
  • A nice, friendly forum, for us to talk about Scott
  • and more...
all neatly organized, the way I meant my site to be...

TV -- Promos for Blue Smoke

Yup, it is time once again to play that exciting game we play: Where's Scott? :-)
According to PQL as posted on SBFF, Scott will be doing a satellite tour on Thursday (he sits in a room and people from across the country interview him for their local stations). Unfortunately we don't know which local stations these will be (it's a Lifetime Movie; not ABC, NBC, etc) so we have to hunt.
In addition to that, and the Good Day LA mentioned earlier, he will also be doing something for the TV Guide channel, in case you want to run tape, they have a rotation for their bits and I don't know how long it is. I also don't know which day.
So the best solution is... you're going to be seeing a lot of that Miss USA contestant with the blonde hair this week as you spend hours winnowing thru all the entertainment shows.
Good luck! (and let me know if you find out anything in advance)

I got a new laptop that came with Windows XP, so I *finally* have XP and I got iTunes, cause I can, now, although the onyy thing I've ever bought from them was an ep of Scrubs (so I could watch it at work, on my oddly dark monitor).

Anyway... I was piddling around there the other day and decided to search for Bakula and they have 3 Guys... which is surprising. The funny thing is that *every* song from it is tagged EXPLICIT, even the ones which aren't. So if you're new here, and haven't heard much of Scott singing, do try I Don't Believe in Heroes Anymore (it's awesome *and* poignant) and maybe Promise of Greatness.... or even the whole album (and anything else of Scott's I didn't notice).

New Project -- Lifetime Movie

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Scott will be co-starring in a Lifetime Original movie, airing in February '07

Here are some details:
Alicia Witt is set to star in "Blue Smoke," a Lifetime original movie based on Nora Roberts' best-selling novel.

Matthew Settle, Scott Bakula and Talia Shire also have been cast in the project... that Lifetime plans to run ... in February. [moved to February 12 - thanks to Jamie]

"Smoke," ... tells the story of Reena Hale (Witt), who as a child witnessed her family's pizzeria go up in flames. Years later, she becomes a detective working on the police department's arson task force alongside her hero, John Minger (Bakula), the man who found out who was responsible for the fire at her mother (Shire) and father's restaurant.

Hale finds happiness when she meets Bo Goodnight (Settle), a hunky carpenter who becomes her next-door neighbor and paramour when a pyromaniac stalker who killed any man she loved reappears in her life.

Bakula, [I guess this is the latest publicity blurb] who played the leads on the series "Quantum Leap" and "Enterprise," recently guest starred on two episodes of CBS' "The New Adventures of Old Christine." He is repped by ICM.

Scott's Birthday

Birthdays are a time for celebration.
Since Scott is not here, and would never be reading this anyway, I've decided to celebrate anyway.

I'd like to celebrate and thank all of you, who I have met, online and in real life in the last 12 and a half years of my being a fan of Scott's. If it were not for him, I would never have met you; I would never have had the experiences we've shared, the things I've learned from you, the support (received and given), the trials we've held each other thru, the community, the giggles, the trips, the silliness, and everything else
So thank you -- all of you -- for being a part of my life (in many cases a big part) for the past 12 years, and especially Kay: You are the best gift Scott ever gave me.
The rest of you know who you are, and I deeply appreciate you.

Reports - Vegas Con

Since I won't be having any reports of my own, I will refer you to
  • trek bbs (thanks to Joanne). check out a posting from Commodore64
  • this guy's livejournal (try to read around the chip on his shoulder -- and thanks to Joanne for that "analysis" ;) )
  • Got an email that Scott sang "something from LaMancha" and was "very nice" when signing autographs (or possibly it was "doing photo ops," I forget) so it looks as if Creation "allowed" him to actually speak to the fans.
  • More pix and reports at SBFF thanks to Shan, Helene, and Barbara (so far). I'd keep an eye out there.

There's a taping of Old Christine (see below) tomorrow, so I would *continue* to keep an eye out there.

Video -- from St Louis

With thanks to Janice (for the heads up) and Joanne (for her great internet research), Julia has managed to create a clip of Scott being interviewed at the game in St Louis the other night. It's about 2 and a half minutes and 25,464 KB.

for the bandwidth challenged, Julia has also done some screencaps, which can be found from a thread here Comments? facebook share

News -- TV and stuff

from Janice in St Louis
Scott is at the baseball game in St. Louis and just spent an inning with the radio announcer.

Big news, he will guest star on "a couple of episodes" of the Old Adventures of New Christine.

unfortunately, Janice didn't have a recorder running... Anyone from St L who did? Email me..

and here's some more detail, from Janice's memory (so don't quote her or anything -- it's all paraphrase)

Mostly he said:

-He had just gotten back from DC
-He wants to do more theater
-His first time back to St. Louis since DC
-QL gave him opportunities to play a wide variety of roles including sport related roles
-He "pinches himself" everyday because of his good fortune (That is not an exact quote, but the gist of that conversation. I think the announcer asked him if he pinched himself and he said "Yes, everyday."
-He will be on a couple of eps of Old Adventures of New Christine
-He will be at the Las Vegas Star Trek Con. He said that he doesn't really know what to expect and plans to just show up and see what happens.
-He complimented our new stadium

That's about it.

thanks again to Janice

and I think it's the New Adventures of Old Christine

I've also heard, for those of you who are going for the photo op, that the allotted time is 15 seconds, and does not include conversation.
Of course, if you are only going to hear Scott speak, then you're all set.

I'll be home, hoping for more theater or some-such. I've destroyed my travel budget for the year already, so I'm hoping it won't be this year. TV, though, is always nice.

SCOTT BAKULA (Capt Archer of Star Trek: Enterprise) $129. Please note that Scott has graciously agreed to sign a limited number of autographs and we expect these to sell out quickly. Please order asap to avoid being shut out. Please also note that the autograph price may rise at any time.

SCOTT BAKULA (Capt. Archer of Star Trek: Enterprise) $99 Please note that Scott has graciously agreed to pose for a limited time and we expect these photo opportunities to sell out quickly.

that's from Creation's Website (link in next post), with thanks to Shan, who posted it on SBFF (link in the left hand navigation pane)

I have no idea what "limited" will amount to, so.. good luck!

I did check out one page on the website and note that Photos with William Shatner will be $70

If you have never been to a Creation Con, check with some friends who have been, in order to know what to expect. I've only been to fan-run Cons, and charity events, myself (oh, and that one musical :-) )

I would love hearing any reports if you go -- publishable or not (your choice)

thanks to Emma, Julia, Kristina, Joanne, Trudy for playing Den Mother, and anyone else I forgot. Scott looked awesome and he was very articulate and diplomatic in dealing with some of the really tough questions that were posed to him. He was also amusing. The man can give a speech. But he didn't much have to. The questions were also awesome. My kudos to their progenitors! Great job, you all!

Print -- USA Weekend

Scott is mentioned, with a little picture, in USA Weekend, today. The text is
Scott Bakula may be best known for his TV roles, but his heart belongs to the theater. So he's in Washington, D.C., this month starring in the musical Shenandoah in the historic Ford's Theatre, where "you see the presidential box and you can't help but think about [Abraham Lincoln's assassination]. We're shooting guns on the very stage." Bakula, 51, whose first professional job was as the son in Shenandoah some 30 years ago, took the role of a Southern family patriarch trying to keep his family out of the war because it's one of "the rare big musical roles for men." The play, "unfortunately, resonates very deeply right now [because], as a planet, we're basically at war."

Help -- London Scott fan looking for pic of herself

Were you in DC March 31? If so, here's a request from Linda

On the 31st March my sister and I were at the evening show and after the performance we waited by the stage door with at least 30 to 40 other enthusiastic fans for Scott to appear, I was the first one to approach him for an autograph when he appeared through the stage door, and I had asked my sister to take a picture of me and Scott (which she did) but when we went back to the hotel we viewed the pictures and my sister had taken a picture of Scott's head (not to say that he doesn't have a lovely head, because he does), but coming all the way from London UK purposely to see him I felt cheated as I had taken a lovely picture of Mr B and my sister.
So, Linda is looking for anyone who might have taken a pic of Scott with her in it. She describes herself as "brunette and Italian looking." You can dig up her post at the SBFF, or just use the link below, to email me.

Washington Post 3/19

Finally! Some decent publicity

From Yvonne:

Just opened my Sunday early edition of the post and there is a decent snippet with an almost full-size photo of Scott on the back side of the Arts section. I looked it up on the Post website. Try their website

You might have to sign up for an account (no cost) to view the site. Scroll down and choose "next page" to view the article. It doesn't have the photo, but it's just a bigger version (down to thigh level) of the previous photo they ran back in February. A nice keepsake if anyone is already in town and can put their hands on the Post while they are here. They should run the same thing in the regular Sunday Post.

here's the text from the website

YOU MIGHT KNOW him from telegenic adventures that had him flying through time ("Quantum Leap") and space (the final Trekkie series, "Enterprise"). But fewer people are aware of Scott Bakula's earthier entertainment life as a Broadway song-and-dance man. He's applying his non-celestial skills on the stage at Ford's Theatre, where he's begun performances of "Shenandoah." The revival of this Civil War musical from 1975, with a score by Gary Geld and Peter Udell, is directed by Jeff Calhoun ("Big River").

-- Peter Marks

At Ford's Theatre, 511 10th St. NW. Through April 30. $25-$52. Call 202-347-4833 or visit

Fan reports can be found at the SBFF, where Trudy's kindly made a sub-forum

Second, Project Quantum Leap (see link below) has an new interview with Scott in their next issue. Excerpts from it are at their website.
I believe you can join the fan club, or you can buy single issues. That info is at their website as well.

And a big round of applause for Sharon, who did the interview(ing). I couldn't have come up with these questions, and yet, they were just the things I wasn't aware I'd been curious about.

Thirdly, Helen and the roomies are having a video party the 25th or 26th. Email me for more details if you plan to be in town those nights.

Conversation about plans and such continues at the SBFF, especially in the Bakula Travel Plans sub-forum. Reminders about extra traffic in DC for the 25th, due to marathons and cherry trees, and all sorts of other things.

Links to SBFF should be on the left panel, as well as the link to the Shenandoah Info Page (to which I would be adding more items, if I had an HTML editor installed on this machine (I hate writing HTML by hand)).

However -- I haven't forgotten Scott (it's been 12 years now; do you really think I would?) I'm going the second weekend, which is apparently Opening Weekend. I'll be at the theater the 24th, 25th, and 26th (all shows) so, come up and say Hi if you want (I'm shy, though it may not look that way).

If you are going, check out the Info Page link on the left column for all kinds of DC info. You can also check out the Bakula Travel Plans board over at the SBFF. Looks like it was actually warm in DC today... if only it would last. Packing for spring is tricky

Comments about Scott -- Gary Graham

Gary Graham, who, I believe, played Soval, has written a book, entitled "Acting and Other Flying Lessons." His comments on Scott, with thanks to startraveller on Trekbbs, follow

Working with Scott is to remember what first drew me to acting. Playing. Scott truly plays when he works and that spirit infects both cast and crew. Laughter is no stranger on a "STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE" set. With a lively and engaging wit, Scott regales anyone within earshot with a steady string of one-liners, self-deprecating remarks, and hilarious anecdotes. His co-star, the lovely and diminuitive Jolene Blalock, is often in stitches from his pranks and humorous asides.

Not that he's not serious when the camera rolls. When it's time to get down to work, Scott is one of the hardest working actors in the business. As star of the show, he is in nearly every shot. That alone takes its toll on one's stamina and concentration, but Scott is always prepared, gracious, and positive on the set.

And generous. He allows his costars and guest leads focus and energy and always gives a full and truthful performance, whether he's on camera or doing off-camera lines. If one of us screws up a line, he habitually says, "That was my fault" even if it is glaringly obvious that it wasn't. This can get comical, which is good--we laugh, Scott smiles, and we go again. Scott knows that levity can loosen up a set and defuse any actor tension hanging around. He is completely approachable, seemingly devoid of ego, with an easy-going, down-to-earth and engaging personality. he is very fit, does most of his own stunts, and carries the role of a starship captain with a balanced sense of command and compassion. He believes what he says--and makes you believe.

Don't Panic!

Joanne got through to Ford's Theater and here is what they said

Just talked to the Box Office.... A very nice young man told me

Scott is SIGNED and COMMITTED to perform through April 30!

He added that the theatre is still negotiating to get him to stay through the original ending date in May, but he couldn't confirm where that stands. Scott's name was taken off the website until everything is ironed out.

I told him a lot of people are planning to come only because it's Scott, and he sighed, "Yes, we KNOW!"

Shenandoah -- Date Change

Yesterday morning when I was vhecking out Ticketmaster's site, I was confused that the dates listed were only thru April 30. Later I got an email from a friend who was planning to go in May - the theater had called her (but they may not be calling everyone: she had told them, specifically, she was only going for Scott. smart girl) to tell her Scott might have a conflct in May (nope, I don't know any more than you do) and did she want a different date. Last night Ford's home page still listed the show as running till May 21, but today it's been changed to April 30th.
thanks to KH and Lily, and to Rosanna, for making me check

Comments on Scott -- from Dominic

The following is from an interview with the UFP fan club of Australia

What is the funniest moment you can remember on the set of Enterprise?

Wow, umm… There was one particular day, I guess it was when we were just launching the show I think. Scott went off to New York to do a bunch of press and he did the Rosie O’Donnell show which is a chat show and she’d found this old commercial that he’d done back in the 70’s when he was getting started as an actor and it was late 70’s early 80’s and it was done as a musical theatre commercial and he was the Canada Dry guy, you know with a little head scarf you know and leg warmers, leggings I mean and it was pretty cheesy. Anyway, the supervising producers got a copy of the said commercial and they got it linked up by the guy that did all our video stuff so that at a hit of a switch it would go all over the computers and the big plasma screen at the back of the bridge and the situation room. And Scott was… no, sorry now that I think about it you can’t get Canada Dry bottles anymore. They don’t make them but the props department made up a bunch of these green bottles with the logo on it and we all had one hidden. So one of the PA’s was sent off to get Scott to go do the next shot and he comes swaggering in like the captain you know he’s all good to do the scene and then someone goes shhh and this cheesy commercial and we all started dancing Canada Dry guy, Canada Dry guy (he actually sang this in the interview) you’ve never seen a grown man go so pure red in just an instant. It was pretty funny.

Scott History Channel Tonight Really

according to all the listings services I've looked at, Scott's THC series should commence tonight at 8 (and 9) pm (eastern) on The History Channel. No matter what viewer relations and the promos said, yesterday. Tonight... tonight... (can you tell i'm in withdrawal??)

and even when they showed the bumper with Scott *in* it. But I'm almost 100% sure that tomorrow night at 8 and 9pm on the History Channel, as my two sets of listings say -- Scott will be on.
Stay tuned.

TV NEW -- History Channel

According to a couple of posters on the TrekBBS and SBFF:
History Channel ... it seems that SB will be hosting a week of the Greatest History's Mysteries.

According to Anita, this will be all next week.
We were unable to find anything on their website but promos are running. I guess you have to check the channel itself.

There's not a lot of information clearly available on this, so I've compiled a listing from my own TV listings program. There are duplicates. The channel is not listing them as History's Mysteries, so it's a bit hard to dig them out.

Comment -- from John B.

from an interview with John Billingsley at MovieHole (Australia, I think)

Bakula was actually rumoured to be returning to do a new series -- and possible telemovie kick-start -- based on his 80's hit "Quantum Leap", but Billingsley says his co-star is exhausted after "Enterprise", and has no plans to return as time-travelling Sam Beckett in the future. "No. My speculation is that Scott's going to lay low for a while. He's got a big family, and certainly doesn't have any financial need [to do Quantum Leap] and it's exhausting doing series television, particularly if it's an action/adventure show".

Braga makes disparaging comments on Enterprise actors work in finale, and other items

According to a report at TrekWeb, which came from an interview with Braga at (which can be downloaded), Brannon Braga has apparently said the following (among other things)

"We made the creative decision to do a final episode that was a nod to all the STAR TREKs. ... It was not everybody's cup of tea. ... I don't think that the actors liked it. I think it showed in their performances that they weren't happy and that the episode suffered from that.

for more detail, fan reaction, and info on how to offer support to the actors themselves (via letters which will be delivered by trekunited) should you be interested -- or even if you just want to vent -- check out this thread at the SBFF

I'm still watching the news from the New Orleans TV stations, streaming across the web from the stations to which they have evacuated, and I'm praying (which is something I do, but try not to advertise much when I do it (that note for my various friends who are going thru "stuff" and have not heard "on list" that I am))

I should also note that SBFF is running a guestbook for birthday wishes for Scott, as well as suggestions for contributions to Our Little Haven, which is one of Scott's supported chartities. These things were posted before Katrina even hit our consciousness.

As for Katrina, I am well aware, it could just as easily have been us. (again. but far worse than last year.)

Comments about Scott -- Dominic

from Starburst 69 via Dominic's website

Looking back at his time on Enterprise, Keating has nothing but good things to say about the show’s cast, in particular, Scott Bakula.
"One of the times I welled up on the Friday that I previously spoke of was while we were shooting a scene in the shuttlepod launch bay," he says. "It was me, Scott, John Billingsley, Linda Park and Anthony Montgomery.
I remember watching Scott at work and thinking, 'Scott, I can’t tell you how great these past four years have been. I’ve learnt so much working with you, not only about the craft of acting and how to carry oneself on a film set, but also about being a human being.'

There's at least one more mention of Scott and a cute comment on the dark alley meeting

"Scott is an extraordinary individual and one of life’s true gents. Without sounding too full of myself, there are moments in my daily life when I’m not prone to take the high road, and I’ll ask myself, 'How would Scott Bakula behave in this situation?' That's the kind of positive affect he’s had on me."

Picture - Me and Scott , better, 2005

I had some problems with the CD that they made of my pix, so the folks at Ritz Camera tried again, and then sent it to a store with a better machine. They weren't kidding about the "better" part. Now Cory's head isn't cut off (and btw, Cory, I got your package yesterday. Wow... thanks!) and I don't look like a ghost. Still, I liked Picasa's "warmity" feature, so I let it adjust the color a bit and here is the result. I just might print it. :-) (and for those who like the necklace, $70 at Target. That was a splurge -- I think the *dress* cost less than that!)

Yup, despite the way it looks, this is the actual picture of me and Scott. The original jpg was so very washed out that my artist had to be very creative with the gamma correction and other things of which I am clueless - he even used a mask as he had to correct us both separately.

I'm home!

I'm dead, but it was worth it. I know it's been quiet here, but according to the stats, no one's been reading the page anyway. So if that's not true, feel free to email and let me know. My address is on the contact page (which should have a link in the side menu). Do also check out the SBFF, which has *always* been in the side menu (or at least since it started), for reports and such on our weekend.

As noted, dead, and not even unpacked yet (that always takes me a week or two, and for bonus points, my house is a mess!) but happy. How could I not be? Someone smiled down upon me (no, not *him*) and gave me a front row seat! (which actually led to "him" smiling down on me, come to think of it.) It was all beyond wonderful, and definitely worth the $700 (thanks roomies! hope to hear from you again soon. just to chat. but I know life is busy.) before trinket shopping.
