Earlier this year, the Project Blue Book team headed to MIPCON which is like the Upfronts for the rest of the world. A reporter from France wrote up this nice story with quotes from the stars. It’s Google Translate, so forgive the awkward wording. Click here for the original in French.
Michael Malarkey: “Quinn is someone who goes straight to the point. He follows orders and doesn’t ask questions. He answers Professor Hynek. Then, when he started working with him, he was forced to think more about these things (unidentified flying objects). He discovers a more rational, more mathematical approach as he tries to close the case as quickly as possible. In the pilot, you can see what could happen when you see what they saw: being ostracized, people being ejected. Quinn knows all about this. So part of his way is to know how far he can go before he explodes? He gave his life to the U.S. Air Force.”
Aidan Gillen: “[Hynek is] someone who started out as a skeptic and ends up believing it. He is a university professor who has worked for the U.S. Air Force for 20 years and has conducted studies on unidentified flying objects. What you need to know about Hynek, he has always been both a skeptic and a believer either at the beginning or in the middle of his career. He believes that there are things that cannot be explained in the universe. There are so many things we don’t know. It’s very important to seek the truth. The evidence requires a meticulous system of categorization, research and study.”
