Congratulations go to the winner, Cheryl Johnson, for getting the most votes! Cheryl not only named this character, but her own name will appear in the movie credits!
Now starts the Voting Period for Character #3! The Judges discussed the pros and cons of each name and then voted on them. Names were chosen by majority rule, which meant that a minimum of three votes were needed to move the names to the Voting Round.

The next name we need is for a character who has not yet been cast, but I can tell you who is number one on my wish list. That person is actor Joel Bissonnette. I haven’t personally talked to Joel so I have no idea if he is interested. But I think this role would fit him perfectly and it would be awesome to have another I-Man alum join the cast. For this character we are looking for both a first name and a last name. Here’s a short character description:
He’s a wealthy industrialist who is considered one of San Francisco’s upper class. His power and influence have made him one of the top businessmen in the city. But behind the thin veil of respectability lies a man who isn’t above doing something illegal or immoral to further his goals, and he has a secret which makes him even more dangerous.
Thanks to Brainy for sharing that Joel Bissonnette has a small part in this week’s Nip/Tuck. The episode already aired but is being repeated tomorrow, Friday, November 30, at 11:00 p.m., and Sunday, December 2, at 10:00 p.m. Do check your local listings.
I looked, but couldn’t find any episode listing info that mentioned Joel. Nor could I find the episode name. Maybe if I had looked harder I could have found more info about this episode, but this will have to do this time. I’m short on time tonight. If any of you have any more info on this episode, feel free to share it with us.
I’m really sorry to post this announcement after the fact, but I didn’t find out about Joel Bissonnette’s (Arnaud De Fehrn) guest appearance in Standoff until after the show was over. Literally five minutes after the show was over, I found out. And, yes, I missed it.
The good news is that you can go to Standoff’s MySpace page and watch the episode there on demand. It should be up for three weeks. How cool is that?
On another note, remember Jonathan Glassner? To refresh your memory, he was one of two executive producers who came on board after Matt Greenberg left I-Man. Well, he’s now working as Co-Executive Producer/Director on Standoff. Interesting how so many I-Man alum end up working together again on different shows.
If you enjoy the behind-the-scenes stuff, then you gotta check out this cool video in which Glassner takes us through the making of an episode of Standoff.
