    I remember reading something, though I don't recall where, about Michael O'Hare not being comfortable with the pace at which television shows are filmed. Since he's primarily trained as a stage actor, that seems like a reasonable assessment. Not being able to handle the transition from stage to television doesn't mean anything when it comes to his ability as a stage actor or his normal personality.

    I've been watching the first season again and I've found that I dislike O'Hare's performance more and more every time through. That perpetual, smug grin is the apex of douchebaggery. I don't know...I think that he took the wrong approach to the role. That, or Jurasik was entirely accurate in his stating that O'Hare was "horribly miscast."

    I remember reading interview with (at least) Peter Jurasik and Stephen Furst in which they discussed the same "unnamed actor" and complained that he was bringing in acting coaches, prompters, and whatnot from the outside, seemed driven by the pace of the show, and was generally not happy and making people around him unhappy. I think it was Peter who said this actor wanted a lot more rehearsals than the rest of the cast, and that Jerry Doyle in particular was irked by this, but I may be misremembering that part.

    None of the interviews were spiteful towards the unnamed actor, but all expressed relief when Bruce Boxleitner (unnamed, of course) came aboard.

    Welcome, Commander-Dan.

    I didn't hear what Jerry had to say. I've read other actors say that O'Hare was uncomfortable in the role and there may have been issues with memorizing dialogue.

    As for his leaving, JMS has said repeatedly that it was a mutual decision arrived at amicably and that only the four people who were in the room at the time will know what was actually said. From what I understand, O'Hare continued to support the show even after leaving and never had an ill word to say about the show.

    Jerry...isn't one of the B5 actors I care for very much I'm afraid. I've just seen him behave inappropriately more than I care to.

    Anyway, yesterday's show was a "best of" repeat, and he began to speak about one of the "problem" actors in the first season of Babylon 5. Though he didn't name names, he certainly spoke his mind in terms of what he thought of this individual, and by the end of his rant, it became quite apparent that he was speaking of Michael O'Hare!

    I found this fascinating because I have heard very few details regarding O'Hare's departure from the show. And Doyle certainly did not paint a pretty picture of O'Hare!

    Did any anyone else catch Doyle's comments, or have otherwise previously heard about the circumstances regarding O'Hare's departure as described by Doyle?

    I know nothing about the circumstances, but it seems to me (from listening to the show quite regluarly) that Mr. Doyle seems to be a little bit on the cantankerous side when he speaks on just about anything. I think you have to take his personal experiences regarding things like that with a grain of salt perhaps? I believe he also related his not being on the TLT DVD to being blackballed for political reasons, which we know is not the case. Hopefully he'll be around on the next one.

    Also, it's stupid for people to judge you based on your political views. I'm sure there are a lot of conservative folks in Hollywood, they simply don't rush out and shout it from the rooftops like the Hollywood liberals tend to do.

    That's a very real possibility. Hollywood tends to be very cliquish and Jerry tends to be rather cynical...


    But now that time has passed since this post went up, I wonder if Jerry's implied (construed) non-participation has anything to do with the larger casting issues that JMS cannot discuss right now.

    things that make me go "hmmmm..."

    I had forgotten about this thread and remembered a point I was going to make when I came across it.

    They act as if they cared for the opinions of the callers, they act as if every little issue was a matter of life and death, they act as if their own view should be important for everyone, they act quite 'holier than thou' sometimes, they act up when a caller or guest contradicts them or refutes them in a way that leaves them with no answer, etc., etc.
    Talk radio is all an act with no subtance and no action. It's the new opium for the masses.
    possibly, but I think it's best to make such decisions on a case by case basis. Take NPR for instance, which has agrandizing journalists as well as insightful ones, just like FOX-TV.

    It's a mixed bag of nuts, like most of life and all of entertainment.

    That said, any idea if that radio show is available somewhere on the web? Or a transcript?

    www.wbap.com is the local station (here in North Texas) that simulcasts his show at 9pm weeknights.

    search through the site for simulcasting options, since I cannot say where the link is, having not used it, but i know there is one.

    good luck

    eh, well, we all have our favorites, and Garibaldi ranks up there with G'Kar and Londo, maybe in fact, because he spent so much screen time with them, I dunno.

    Whether Jerry is a good actor, or Garibaldi was a good character well executed matters not to me.

    I'll miss his presence in the team, if that's the way it's going to be.

    I have never been a big Bruce Willis fan, so every time I see Willis in a film, I think "That's the guy who emulates Garibaldi."
    Don't forget that Jerry had an appearance on an episode of Moonlighting where David went missing (was in prison on a chaingang, IIRC) and they were auditioning replacements. Jerry was one of the auditionees...
