It’s awesome to see an actor take a professional interest in more than just being a character, and such is the case with Eureka’s Joe Morton. Joe plays Henry Deacon on the show.
Joe has directed before – an episode of TriBeCa, when he was on that show and an independent film titled Sunday on the Rocks.
The upcoming episode of Eureka (9/11/09) involves a virus that causes an ice age sort of environment (and the return of Matt Frewer).
But you’d better keep a careful eye out – Morton knows the TV series has a certain feel to it, and understanding that, he tried to add a few directorial tweaks of his own to this episode.
It will be interesting to watch, for sure! I like actor-directed episodes. The actors know how the show should tick and it gives them a chance to spread their professional wings in a different direction.
BTW, did anyone catch the Eureka marathon on Syfy? It was an awesome collection of fan favorites. It filled in all the holes for me from episodes that I missed. I never knew that Sheriff Carter had to go back in time and walk away from his relationship with Allison. That was depressing…
