If you were looking forward to the premiere of Paul Ben-Victor’s new series In Plain Sight tomorrow night, well, you’re going to have to wait a little longer. The premiere date has been pushed back to Sunday, June 1, 2008, at 10:00 p.m./9:00 p.m. Central on USA.
Paul plays the role of Stan McQueen in this series. You can read about his character on his character profile page. Personally, I found Paul’s bio page to be a much more interesting read…lot’s of great info and tidbits.
In mentioning Paul’s past achievements, USA mentions Invisible Man. But what I didn’t know about was the award Paul received for his role of Bobby Hobbes in the series. When did that happen? Am I the only one who didn’t know about this?
Here’s what USA has to say about it:
Ben-Victor also starred as Special Agent Bobby Hobbes in the international hit series “The Invisible Man,” a role that earned him a Best Supporting Actor Audience Award for Sci Fi.
Wow, learn something new every day. We fans all know how incredibly talented Paul is and it’s wonderful to see that his talent has been acknowledged! Here’s some more news about Paul:
- “Ben-Victor will soon be seen in the hit comedy Everybody Hates Chris as crazy Coach Thurman in an eight-episode arc.”
- Paul will appear in the upcoming film “Anytown, a gripping drama from writer/director Dave Rodriguez.”
- Paul’s production company, American Independent Pictures, will produce its first feature film, Should’ve Been Romeo. He co-wrote and will star in the film along with Natasha Henstridge and Michael Rapaport.
I think I remember that, but I’m trying to remember what web site gave that award. There was a kind of mom-and-pop web site with a huge following that took fan votes for awards each year in a number of different categories. You could vote every 8 hours, which meant that sometimes I was setting my alarm and getting up at 2 or 3 in the morning to vote. You could vote once per e-mail address, and they didn’t care how many e-mail addresses you had. I had at least 60 by the end of it, voting 3 times a day. The Farscape fans were really giving us a run for our money, as I recall. I think in the end, the I-Man cast won nearly every category, and some by about 60 votes, coincidentally. I was always in awe of that, because I knew that meant if I, or even 1 or 2 other fans, had missed out on one of those 8-hour windows, it wouldn’t have happened. Was that the Roswell awards? Somebody help me out here.
Yes, I remember the Roswell awards. The competition between we I-Man fans and the Farscape fans was just crazy and, yes, we won most of the categories. But I have doubts as to whether the Roswell awards is what USA is referring to on their website. Then again, I could be wrong.
Now I do remember that I-Man was nominated for a Saturn award both years, but I don’t recall that Paul won anything there.
