During an interview with Access Hollywood, Joe Manganiello talks about how True Blood changed his life and how he’s going to take “fun stuff” home from the set. He also says that a “Magic Mike 2? announcement will be coming out soon, and promotes his “real life” documentary, “La Bare.”
In an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed, Holt confirms it was her decision to leave The CW spinoff and executive producer Julie Plec reveals how The Originals will proceed without Rebekah Mikaelson.
“It’s ludicrous,” Holt stated of reports that the writers had run out of ideas for her character and forced her out of the show. “I want to be very clear that they didn’t run out of material, I wasn’t pushed out, I wasn’t fed up with Rebekah, I didn’t quit mid-season, there was no drama, there was no rift between cast members; it really came down to the fact that I completed my initial commitment and made a life choice, not a career choice.”
Holt’s decision to leave, which she said solely stemmed from a desire to be back in Los Angeles with her loved ones, did not come easily. “This show has been so amazing for my career, and I’ve had such unbelievable material, it was just never my intention to be away from home this long,” she said of the atypical route that brought her to The Originals, which began as a three-episode guest role on Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, but quickly evolved into so much more.
“It was a tough choice that I didn’t fully make it right up until the end, because I was enjoying myself so much. But three seasons later, I realized I hadn’t been home to Australia in years, I hadn’t seen my family, and I hadn’t spent time with the people I loved,” she explained. “But I want to make it so clear that this show has such a special place in my heart. I am so glad I was able to do The Originals, and I want to be a part of that family for a long time. I am simply looking at this as a temporary absence.”
Echoing Holt’s sentiments, The Originals executive producer Julie Plec told BuzzFeed that Episode 16, the aptly named “Farewell to Storyville,” was definitely not the last fans have seen of Rebekah. Plec pointed to the recent return of long-deceased Mikael (Sebastian Roche), the Mikaelson patriarch, in flashbacks as a way Rebekah could appear on the show without invalidating her truce with Klaus (Joseph Morgan).
And she’s not the only Mikaelson who might be popping up on The Originals: “The opportunity exists for all the family members to return because they have a thousand years of history,” Plec added. “Especially Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic), who said very clearly on Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries that he had history with the witches of New Orleans. There’s many stories to be told there for sure.”
While Rebekah’s departure is still being mourned by fans, Plec added that her exit ignites a series of events that leads directly to the explosive Season 1 finale.
“In ending Rebekah’s journey, we opened up a lot of room in the final chapter of the season, which is really exploring all these different factions we’ve introduced along the way: the witches, the werewolves, the humans, Klaus playing all sides, and now Elijah stepping into that leadership role to keep some semblance of peace,” Plec said. “You’ve got a lot of people who all want the same thing — control of the quarter — trying to play a dicey game of backstabbing and manipulation that won’t end well.”
Viewers of The CW’s “Supernatural” will be introduced to a new cast of characters and new setting in the April 29 episode of the monster-hunting series. And if the network likes what it sees, these characters (including rival mob families made up of monsters) and the setting (Chicago) will return for a spinoff called “Supernatural: Bloodlines.”
The episode — known in Hollywood as a backdoor pilot — has been filming in Vancouver. That’s where “Supernatural” films. But it will shoot exterior scenes in Chicago Tuesday through Thursday, according to “Bloodlines” writer and executive producer Andrew Dabb. It has yet to be decided if “Bloodlines” would split time between the two cities (similar to what Showtime’s “Shameless” does) should it get picked up.
“We would love to shoot everything in Chicago,” Dabb said over the phone Monday, “but that remains to be seen at this point. It’s a question of economics.”
What made the producers want to set the “Bloodlines” story in Chicago?
“We started to talk about doing an organized crime angle, and that put us in two places: New York and Chicago,” Dabb said. “One of the producers, Robert Singer, has filmed in Chicago and had nothing but good things to say about Chicago. It just made sense story-wise.”
Dabb said “Supernatural” protagonists Sam and Dean Winchester (played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, respectively) will appear briefly in the episode, with most of the focus on “Bloodlines” protagonists Ennis Ross (played by Lucien Laviscount) and David Lassiter (Nathaniel Buzolic). Ross, the son of a cop, becomes a monster hunter like the Winchester brothers after his fiancee gets killed. Lassiter is a shape-shifter who gave up the monster life until the death of his brother pulls him back in.
“We want to take a soap-ier approach,” Dabb said. “It wouldn’t be like ‘Supernatural,’ where there is a different case every week. It would be more serialized with ongoing stories.”
Padalecki and Ackles will be part of the Chicago shoot, but Dabb said they wouldn’t be regulars on the spinoff. It’s more likely that the secondary characters on “Supernatural” would make an appearance than the Winchester brothers due to the actors’ already busy “Supernatural” schedules. Still, there is always the potential for a crossover episode.
“We’ve certainly talked internally about a crossover episode,” Dabb said. “We’d love to do it, potentially in the first season. But it will come down to economics and scheduling.”
“Bloodlines” would begin filming its first season in July if it gets the green light.
