Courtesy of Naught PI Agency: Jeffrey Berman just released a new photo on Naught For Hire's Facebook. The Naught for Hire Facebook page has also been updated with the info that the series will be released in 2012, although it does not give a solid date. But wth the release of two new pictures now and a new date, I think it's safe to assume that things are moving along as well as all are hoping for.

I should also add the news that there are workings to get TPTB for the movie Bad Kids Go To Hell (based on the graphic novel) interested in Ben. You can find info about it here but I just wanted to pass on the word because if enough people hit their Facebook and website asking for Ben as Max (and by the way, Ben really wants to do this part) there's a damn good chance they'll get the role. From what I understand they were shocked when Scapers got the word out and even Hulk Hogan tweeted about it on his Twitter account for Ben to play the role!

Naught For Hire on Facebook posted this earlier today. Dang he's looking good there with that lovely little Ford at his back. There's supposed to be some sort of clue in the photo to something but you've got me as to what it's about.

Someone was kind enough to let me know that after contacting TPTB for the London Film and Comic Con that Ben will not be appearing as previously mentioned.

I apologize to everyone that got their hopes up at getting to see him in person. I had posted about the convention after seeing it announced on Twitter. Next time I'll remember to double check in a couple places before posting such news.

Ben at the Armageddon Expo in Melbourne this past week. He talks about science fiction on Australian television in this particular clip and again I will say that I love the listen to him talk about this kind of stuff because the sucker is smart and you can't come away from listening to him without learning at least something about acting or writing.

Due to a family emergency, Ben Browder has had to depart Australia immediately and return home, while we cannot go into it in detail, it was a major family emergency and while Ben was very upset about disappointing his NZ fans, it could not be avoided.

Thank you to Spritelady on Terra Firma for passing on the news. And I'm sending good vibes toward Ben and his family, they've had a rough year as it is.

Ben has joined Joe Flanigan to do Marin Firrell's art project about Science Fiction and you can see a few of the clips he has done here. There are two where he touches on Crichton (get your mind outta the gutter) and one how he approached doing Cameron Mitchell. I absolutely love where he talks about Crichton: He was a man. No more, no less. He lived, he breathed, he loved. Here lies John Crichton.

I frelling adore the colors in this one photo. I can't wait to see the completed project because just judging by the clips up already for Ben and Joe, it's going to be breathtaking.

Now if I can just figure out how to save these clips...

These are courtesy of Bexcalpin when she went to see Ben at the London Film and Comic Con on July 17th. They're a tad hard to understand because of the sound system. I should totally give you a spew warning for these because Ben was definitely having fun during his talk. :D

Being asked if he ever dreamed that he was his character

Talking about wishing about being Michael Shanks and talking about the Daniel/Vala thing

Spotted this over on Terra Firma just now and wanted to share the news. Polaris' link if you'd like more information.

ACTOR GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT FOR POLARIS 25 - BEN BROWDER("FARSCAPE", "STARGATE SG-1") Also as announced at the Polaris 24 closing ceremonies, Polaris is pleased to announce that Ben Browder has accepted our invitation to be one of our Actor Guests at next year's Polaris 25. Though born in Memphis, Tennessee, Browder was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. After graduation, he went to England to study acting at London's Central School of Speech and Theatre. He returned to the U.S. in 1989 as part of the cast of Peter Hall's Broadway production of "Merchant of Venice" starring Dustin Hoffman. He soon headed to Hollywood, where he was cast in a number of guest-starring roles, ranging from "Murder She Wrote" to "CSI: Miami" to the recurring character of 'Sam' in "Party of Five". In addition, he also appeared in several Movie of the Week productions including, "The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels", Danielle Steele's "Secrets", and "The Fire Above", to name a few; as well as the blockbuster movie "Memphis Belle." Cast as the lost astronaut, 'John Crichton', in 1999, "Farscape" was his first lead role in a TV series. A critical and rating success, the series quickly became the signature show for the SciFi Channel and ran from 1999 to 2004. He went on to win two Saturn Awards for the series. Despite being cancelled abruptly in 2003, "Farscape" returned to the small screen in 2004 after a tremendous campaign by its fans. Mr. Browder won a third Saturn Award for the mini-series, "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars". In 2005, his character, 'Lt-Col. Cameron Mitchell' took over as leader of SG-1, replacing Richard Dean Anderson's 'Gen. Jack O'Neill'. Most recently, Browder has been cast as lead in the upcoming sci-fi noir web series "Naught for Hire". Browder will play 'Nick Naught', an old-fashioned private detective in a futuristic world. Ben Browder will be attending the Blastoff Party, signing autographs, appearing onstage, and participating in our photo sessions. All guest appearances are subject to professional commitments. All event times are subject to change.

Via Angie at Terra Firma:

I had a sad message from Ben. His father has passed away. He sent me a message and an obituary. He said he wasn't sure how to tell people. I offered to pass the news to the fan community if and when he wanted. Here is the reply:

I would be happy to see the Obituary distributed to any and all. My Dad's last Doctor, Sue Prill, was a Farscape Fan and a damn fine woman... Her charity is the Wellmont Hospice House in Bristol.

Link to Obituary

It's a wonderful tribute to his father that has tears in my eyes.

LAscaper posted this tonight over on Terra Firma:

Hey y'all

Just got a message from Ben's manager.

After long discussions with the Producers, Ben has decided not to do the series as he has a couple of films that he would like to do and if he went ahead with the series, he would not be able to do them. It was a difficult decision as you can understand.

I'm actually glad he won't be on it because I just saw the trailer for Hellcats and I would have been in the 7th circle of hell watching it. It also looks like he's making sure he has the way cleared for filming Naught For Hire and Freeze Frame.

Hellcats has been picked up by CW
