  • The Actors; Today

    I have wondered what the actors are doing today, and what they have been doing after Babylon 5 or just other work they have done. So I made this thread.

    Bruce Boxleitner..............Captain John Sheridan
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Boxleitner
    In 2003, Boxleitner was appointed to the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, a nonprofit, educational space advocacy organization founded by Dr. Wernher von Braun.
    Boxleitner has also written two science fiction novels with a Western setting: Frontier Earth (1999) and Searcher (2001).

    Boxleitner has been in film roles such as,The Gambler (alongside Kenny Rogers) and Tron (in which he played the title role). He has made appearances in many other TV shows, such as Judith Krantz's Till We Meet Again and She Spies. He reprised his Tron roles in the video game sequel Tron 2.0 and the Disney/Square Enix crossover video game Kingdom Hearts II.

He lives with his family in North Carolina and teaches acting for the camera in the Film Studies Department at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He is best known for his television roles as Londo Mollari in the 1990s science fiction series Babylon 5 and Sid the Snitch on the 1980s series Hill Street Blues and its short-lived spinoff Beverly Hills Buntz.

    Jerry Doyle...................Michael Garibaldi
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Doyle_%28actor%29
    In 2000, Doyle unsuccessfully ran for the United States House of Representatives in California's 24th Congressional district (Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, to the northwest of Los Angeles), as a Republican. He later severed his ties with the party, and now declares himself an independent.

    Doyle is now a talk radio host syndicated via Talk Radio Network, discussing politics, current events, and popular culture.
    Weekdays from 3PM-6PM ET (12PM-3PM PT), Jerry Doyle airs the popular Jerry Doyle Show on the Talk Radio Network, though the show airs at different times in different markets. He differs from other conservative talk show hosts, such as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, in that his focus is not exclusively political.

    On his radio show he coined the phrase "Grapefruit Mentality", defined as the ability for the public to become interested in an object or person just because the media is paying attention to it. As an example, Doyle explains if there was a segment on the news every night with a television camera pointed at a grapefruit, people will eventually travel great distances just to see the grapefruit that was on TV.

    Other examples Doyle uses of Grapefruit Mentality are the images of the Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese and another Virgin Mary sighting under an overpass in Chicago. It can also refer to the public's fascination with celebrity court cases such as Michael Jackson and Robert Blake. Doyle is the ex-husband of actress Andrea Thompson, who played the role of telepath Talia Winters in the first two seasons of Babylon 5.

          I took care of that other thread, Kosh555. This one is *much* easier to read, thanks!

          The first volume of the Babylon 5 Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski was dedicated to Rick Biggs:

          Dedicated with love and respect to the memory of
          Richard Biggs
          whose ship departed unexpectedly
          and far too early.

          We envy the stars his magnificent company.

          Also, the San Diego ComicCon/Best Buy exclusive mini comic accompanying the Babylon 5: The Lost Tales had this dedication on the back cover:

          Dedicated to
          the loving memory
          of Richard Biggs and
          Andreas Katsulas

          Gone but never forgotten.

            That is very sad. He had a wife a kid and everything and he died young at 44. I think he is one of the best actors on the show.

                The first volume of the Babylon 5 Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski was dedicated to Rick Biggs:

                Dedicated with love and respect to the memory of
                Richard Biggs
                whose ship departed unexpectedly
                and far too early.

                We envy the stars his magnificent company.

                Also, the San Diego ComicCon/Best Buy exclusive mini comic accompanying the Babylon 5: The Lost Tales had this dedication on the back cover:

                Dedicated to
                the loving memory
                of Richard Biggs and
                Andreas Katsulas

                Gone but never forgotten.

                    Two adorable little boys and his wife is both beautiful and nice. I was privileged to meet them at the Memorial Fundraiser held about a year after he passed away. There are some pics of them here.

                    Small bit of trivia: The pretty lady that Dr. Franklin dances with in "Epiphanies" is Rick's wife.

                        I was there as both an attendee of the fundraiser and to help out. One of my main hobbies is flying around to SF conventions. Mrs. Biggs knew of me because I'd helped with some fundraising right after Rick's death.

                        After Rick died, a fund was set up to benefit his sons and the address was posted in many places. I don't have much money but I've got lots and *lots* of B5 stuff so I decided to do some Ebay auctions and contribute the money from them to the fund. I set up a separate PayPal account to ensure that none of that money got mixed up with mine and suddenly something wonderful started happening.

                        In addition to generous bids on my auctions, fans from all over started sending me things to auction off. Collectibles, autographed items, rare magazines, you name it. Other fans, often overseas, sent money directly to the PayPal account which was more convenient than getting a US funds money order. One fan who'd purchased an item actually returned it to me to resell along with an entire case of other items. I held a raffle with themed prize packages. A while later, a fan who'd bought a painting from JMS had a very few prints made of it and auctioned them off to benefit the fund for the boys.

                        All in all, the incredible outpouring of generosity on the part of the B5 fan community raised over $6,000 and possibly close to $7,000.

                        I don't have any idea how much the fundraiser raised but there were actors from (I think) all of the shows that Rick had spent time on, particularly B5. From B5 was: Bruce Boxleitner, Melissa Gilbert, Pat Tallman, Jeffrey Willerth, Jerry Doyle, Stephen Furst, Marjorie Monoghan, Joshua Cox, Tony Dow and Ed Wasser. Hopefully I'm not forgetting anybody. They all had photos that they were 'selling' but the fund got all of the money. There were also things auctioned off, like one of Bruce's crew jackets, some scripts and lots of other stuff. It was lots of fun and there were many loving tributes to Rick.

                        Fans are really cool.

                            Nice to see your still doing everything you can for Ricks family Jan. You are a trooper with a big heart to be sure. I see your still referencing the pictures I took at the Memorial as well. Very cool time we had that day to be sure. Keep up the good work!

                              Jan, that picture of you at the memorial was great, I don't know what you fuss about.

                              Any update on Michael O'Hare?
                              What a wonderful world you live in. -
                              Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.
