A note to his fans from Alex O'Loughlin


Alex has sent this message to update his fans on what's been happening with him lately :)

Hello from Pittsburgh

Hi everybody.

So I know you have all been anxious to know exactly what I'm up to, and I'm sorry it's taken me a minute to get back to you but things are now clear.

As some of you know I did a little guest role on Criminal Minds which was a lot of fun. I got to work with some great friends and terrific people and I had a really good experience. The episode is called The Big Wheel. I hope you enjoy it.

I am currently in Pittsburgh filming a new pilot for CBS called Three Rivers. It is about as different from Moonlight as anything could possibly be (laughing right now) but that being said I sure hope all you "die hard" vampire fans come with me on this journey!

Three Rivers is a wonderful story about donors, recipients and surgeons in the world of transplant surgery and of how all these people's lives are affected on a daily basis by the miracles and devastations involved in surgery today.

As I'm sure you can appreciate I have been totally consumed with my research and preparation for this role, and along the way I have discovered a secret passion within myself for cardio thoracic surgery! Who knew?!! ;) It is very interesting, very important and I believe this story we are about to embark on will be something you will very much enjoy being a part of.

I hope you are all healthy and well and until we speak again...wish me luck!!

All my love,
Alex O'Loughlin

I'm glad to see Alex in more roles: be it vampire or not. I never realized it before, but I noticed Alex in the movie August Rush the other day. His Irish drawl made me do a double take, before I realized it was him.

I don't think there will be anymore Moonlight episodes. I so wish there would be, but I think too much time has passed since these originals were done.

Alex O’Loughlin, who starred in the cult vampire TV show “Moonlight,” is in negotiations to nab the romantic male lead role opposite Jennifer Lopez in CBS Films” “The Back-Up Plan.”

Written by Kate Angelo, the rom-com centers on a single woman (Lopez) who turns to artificial insemination to answer her ticking clock, only to see her backup plan turned on its side when the man of her dreams shows up on the same day that her pregnancy test results come back positive.

Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing through their Escape Artists banner. Alan Poul is directing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin May 11 in Los Angeles, making it the second CBS Films to go into production (after the untitled Crowley project, a medical drama starring Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser).

All I can say is..if it becomes a done deal....Jenny from the Block is going to be one lucky girl..Grrrr.. ;o).
