Fan asks about Alex O'Loughlin's next move

TV Guide's Mickey O'Connor fielded a question today about our lovely Alex O'Loughlin and his future projects. Top secret offers, huh?

Mickey refers back to a post you may remember where he suggested Alex would be perfect for the tv show, Lost. Since it is mentioned in his answer today, I'll repost the old info for those who missed it.

Great question, Debbie! We need to keep Moonlight and its incredible cast in the minds of entertainment reporters, critics and such. It is very important.

Today's News : Our Take

Is Moonlight's Alex O'Loughlin going to do anything that will continue to showcase acting magnificence? — Debbie

Mickey: Last I heard from Benedict XVI, the canonization process is well under way, but until St. Alex makes his official Vatican debut, he is weighing offers, as they say. Top-secret offers. That I can't talk about yet. But I can say that my idea for AO'L's next move probably isn't going to happen.

Here is Mickey's idea for Sophia Myles, Jason Dohring & Alex O'Loughlin's next projects.....

Not to beat a dead vampire, but despite all the last-ditch efforts — by the CW, TNT, DirecTV — Moonlight is actually dead, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Their source says the sets have been dismantled, and the show's soundstage will soon be occupied by Simon Baker's new drama The Mentalist.

Although I wasn't a regular viewer of Moonlight, I am sad for its passing, since it's nice when a show generates such a devoted fan base. Let's all look toward the future though. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, star of the recently canceled New Amsterdam, has already landed a new pilot at Fox. Where will you like to see Moonlight stars Alex O'Loughlin, Sophia Myles and Jason Dohring show up next?

A Dohring-Kristen Bell reunion on Heroes seems inevitable. Myles might make a dangerous addition to Mad Men's stable of lethal beauties. And call me crazy, but when I see O'Loughlin, I immediately think: "Widmore henchman" on Lost. Got any other ideas? — Mickey O'Connor

Oh my. I'm not sure about the AO'L speculation, but Sophia Myles on Mad Men? I love that show, and although I never seem to have time to watch it, I would definitely make more time to see Phia on there! I just love her. :) Although not seeing her beside Alex will take some getting used to. Sigh, such beautiful dynamic is hard to come by.

And if Alex landed something like Lost, I think I might faint. Hot and sweaty on an abandoned island? And I thought Sawyer was hot. O.O *ahem* It's late, shutting up now, but yes, at least they're all getting work! God bless them. :)

It’s going to be ver difficult and painful to watch ‘the tribe’ in different roles other than our beloved Moonlight but we don’t have much choice in the matter and I wish them all the best in whatever new roles they can get. I’m not sure if you folks are aware that the ‘final nail in the coffin’ was put on MOONLIGHT by as they haves taken our show off their list of shows and there’s no more message board. That won’t discourage me with my fight to bring our ML back and of course, continue NOT to watch CBS.

Hey Kookiegirl ~

Actually, the official CBS Moonlight website and message boards are still there. They just removed our show from their list of programs. You can still get to the forums & site by using this direct url address....

Personally I didn't like Mickey's ans to "Debbie whoever". I thought it was snide and snarky and extremely unprofessional and I told him so in a commnet at that site. MVM told me to "chill" and there were 2 posters who didn't like MY SNIDE REMARKS!!....I don't care how they feel or what they say...I told them I was standing by my original comments and that I wasn't defending that Debbie person either.

I thought Mickey was mocking Alex and I didn't like it one single bit. I'm so sick and tired of the Moonlight bashing prior to it's premier last year, during it's 1 yr run and after it's cancellation. And the insults of others to ML fans who passonately love the show.

I miss Moonlight so just makes me sad that it's gone. At this point I would be happy to see Alex and Jason on anything any time. I miss those two so much. :)
