🛸 There’s a neat video from January 2020, of Aidan Gillen and Neal McDonough promoting season 2, posted by @AM2DM/Buzzfeed News. The 13-minute interview starts at the 35.30 mark. The pair discuss Project Blue Book, and of course, Aidan talks a little about his earlier shows Game of Thrones and Queer as Folk, and there’s an interesting Doctor Who tidbit in there as well! Thx to @aidangillenR for posting the links below.

🛸 Aidan Gillen’s movie Rose Plays Julie is making the rounds at various film festivals.
Amplify Film Festival (UK) November 6-12, 2020
As well as the 33rd annual Foyle Film Festival (Ireland)
“Rose Plays Julie tells the story of a young woman searching for her biological mother. Set against a backdrop of misogyny, revenge and longing, Rose undertakes a journey that leads her to revelations that are both devastating and dangerous. Written and directed by Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, the film has been screened at various film festivals, from London Film Festival last year to Dublin Film Festival, Galway Film Fleadh, Melbourne International Film Festival, Bari International Film Festival, Hamptons International Film Festival and Amplify Film Festival this year.

🛸 Jerod Haynes (Agent Banks) will be performing “Baby Steps” for the Rattlestick Theater. It will air November 17 from 5:00-6:00PM (presumably, Chicago time). Check out https://www.rattlestick.org/20202021-season/babysteps for full details/tickets.
In this funny and heartbreaking monologue, starring Jerod Haynes and written by Kareem M. Lucas, during a rare moment of peace, Ike decides to commemorate his newborn daughter being alive for 14 weeks by creating a video for her that captures this overwhelming and unforgettable moment in both of their lives. What begins as a joyful celebration of his daughter’s birth suddenly spirals into raw confession of his personal pain that he has ignored in order to focus on taking care of his Babygirl during the global pandemic and the uprising of 2020 in New York City. At a time when so many Americans are dying, this Black man is trying to figure out how to live.
🛸 Sofia Milos (aka Daria) has joined other Project Blue Book cast members (Neal McDonough, Jill Morrison) on Cameo https://www.cameo.com/ . What is Cameo? A website where you can get personalized messages from your favorite celebrity.
🛸 Remember Donna (@HeatherDoerksen), the Hynek’s nosy neighbor who befell a foul fate? Heather has a new movie out. Welcome to the Circle is a perfect movie for Halloween. Movie details at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3918800/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl. More details and photo at her tweet below, and it’s streaming on various platforms.
Heather also posted this fun photo of herself in a hot pink jacket which she described as ‘pink Muppet coat’. So THAT’s where Billy the Muppet ended up! Poor critter. 😊 IG post at https://www.instagram.com/p/CG8LgZ8Bcen/
🛸 CORRECTION: The last post on this site mentioned that Project Blue Book season 2 aired in France on October 26th. That was in error. (Sorry!) WarnerTVFrance stated on Twitter that it will air in 2021.
