March 5th: A quick wrap-up of this week’s news.
🛸 If you saw the coming attractions for “What Lies Beneath” (which airs March 10th), you may have recognized actor Brian Markinson as the man giving Hynek a folder. This actor has an extensive filmography and if you’ve watched virtually anything made in Canada, he’s probably be in it. He can currently be seen in the Canadian series https://www.tribaltvseries.com/. *** And, in a ‘six degrees of Kevin Bacon’ type situation, actress Michelle DeShon (‘Betty’ in this episode) previously starred in the Sean Jablonski 2014 series “Satisfaction”. *** Lastly, IMDB indicates that Agent Banks (Jerod Haynes) returns in this episode. After the explosive turn of events in “Close Encounters,” will Banks help HyneQuinn, or should they watch their backs?
🛸 Australian fans are now enjoying season 2 of Project Blue Book. Articles are coming out via SBS.com.au, who air the series. An article popular with the fans is ‘‘Project Blue Book’s Hynek is the sexy science nerd we all need in our lives’. Author Anthony Morris (@morrbeat (Twitter)) runs down the precise reasons why this geeky university professor as portrayed by Aidan Gillen is just so hot.

🛸 ‘Why bother with a normal vacation, when you can have a paranormal one? A surprising number of locations have reported links to extraterrestrials, flying saucers and aliens, says David O’Leary, creator and executive producer of “Project Blue Book,” which stars “Game of Thrones” alumnus Aidan Gillen as Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a college professor recruited by the U.S. Air Force to research cases of alleged UFO sightings.’ Read the full article (“10 places to spot UFOs, as selected by the creator of ‘Project Blue Book’”) at https://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/travel/destinations/10greatplaces/2020/03/03/project-blue-book-creator-shares-10-favorite-sites-ufo-spotting/4858232002/
