Eddie McClintock:   I‟m your Boogeyman.


Operator:       Ladies and gentlemen if you wish to register a question please press the 1
                followed by the 4 on your telephone.


Saul Rubinek:   They have to register a question.


Eddie McClintock:   I‟ve got a question, Eddie why would you go to Bulgaria to do a movie
                called The Boogeyman?


Saul Rubinek:   Because it would be fun and you have a family to support.


Eddie McClintock:   Answer, because it‟s awesome. No it is fun man, I‟m having a blast.


Saul Rubinek:   Cool.


Operator:       And our first question comes from the line of Jamie Steinberg with Starry
                Constellation Magazine. Please proceed with your question.
Jamie Steinberg: Hi. It‟s a pleasure to speak with both of you.


Saul Rubinek:     Hi. How are you doing?


Jamie Steinberg: Good. Thanks for taking time out of your Boogeyman schedule to speak with
                  us Eddie.


Eddie McClintock:     No problem. It‟s my pleasure.


Jamie Steinberg: It‟s fun just to say Boogeyman.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah it is. I‟m going to have some of my musician friends do the
                  recording of the KC and Sunshine Band Boogeyman Song, see if we can get it
                  for the theme song of the movie.


Jamie Steinberg: Good luck. Fingers crossed.


Eddie McClintock:     Thanks.


Jamie Steinberg: Eddie what are some of your typical holiday traditions?


Eddie McClintock:     Well, my favorite holiday tradition would be having to pick my mom off
                  the kitchen floor and put her into a cold shower, after she had had too much
                  cooking sherry. But other than that, I have two sons now and they‟re just
                  starting to really enjoy Christmas and the holidays and we try and make sure
                  to put out some cookies and milk for Santa and make sure that they have lots
                  of toys under the tree as it were.
Jamie Steinberg: And Eddie you‟re an active participant on Twitter. Why are social networking
                  sites like Twitter important to promotion of special holiday episodes like
                  Warehouse 13‟s and new projects that you‟re working on like Boogeyman?


Eddie McClintock:    Well I think just the climate of the entertainment industry has changed
                  with the introduction of these social networking sites and the fact that a lot of
                  magazines have folded because of the economy.


                  So the use of a publicist maybe isn‟t necessarily as prominent as it used to be
                  so getting out there and kind of being able to talk to the fans and let them hear
                  from me personally is a cool new thing and I have a good time, it keeps me
                  busy and it‟s just fun to have that instant feedback that you get from Twitter.


                  And I think it‟s important because for instance I have some friends who have
                  a million, I have like three or four friends who have about a million followers
                  on their Twitter account and I told them before the premiere of Warehouse 13
                  I asked them if they would do like a blast to all their followers.


                  So before the premiere this year I had direct blast to about 3.5 million listeners
                  who already follow the things these people say to begin with. I think that has,
                  there‟s a lot of power there, marketing power, so I think it‟s a good thing.


Jamie Steinberg: And real quick Saul, can you tell us why people keep tuning in to watch
                  Warehouse 13?


Saul Rubinek:     Because of Eddie‟s Twitter probably.


Eddie McClintock:    Nice.
Saul Rubinek:    It‟s really interesting. Last year I crossed the country with my son, we were
                 moving from one coast to the other and I was kind of used to people
                 recognizing me from either Unforgiven or Family Man or Frazier or
                 something like that but it was so, it was very often, more often than
                 Warehouse 13.


                 And what was unusual is I used to be able to pick out people who were
                 recognizing me from what show, my kids and I used to play a game where
                 that was a Frazier fan, that‟s definitely a Star Trek fan, that‟s a True Romance
                 fan because of the tattoos.


                 But with Warehouse 13 it‟s impossible to tell because we‟ve all discussed
                 this, but quite often people are watching this with their families, which makes
                 all of us really proud. I mean it‟s a 9:00 show, it‟s really appropriate for kids
                 ten years old and up, and it‟s violence is kept at a minimum.


                 And it‟s the kind of show because of the humor and because of the adventure
                 fantasy that seems to work, thank god, for the whole family so that nobody
                 feels either talked down to or talked up to and I think it‟s the secret of its
                 success is that. Now why that is because there are a lot of smart people and
                 producing it and writing it and they‟re brilliant in their choice of actors, just
                 brilliant. But other than that it was, it‟s...


Jamie Steinberg: Yourself included.


Saul Rubinek:    Yeah. But we have a great time and I think it‟s kind of contagious, you can
                 tell I think that we all have a good time doing the show. We really enjoy it; we
                 really look forward to every day of shooting we have a great time.
                 We have a wonderful and imaginative show runner Jack Kenny who keeps
                 things humorous and allows for collaboration and we‟re very lucky, we‟re
                 very fortunate and some of that I think transmits through the airways to the
                 people and people tell each other.


                 And that‟s what‟s going on. I think another reason is because not one episode
                 is really formulaic and you can‟t really tell what the next step what‟s it‟s
                 going to be like other than the fact that we‟re tracking down artifacts, you can
                 have quite a dark episode, you can have a really light one, there isn‟t a
                 formula and I think that that is attracting fans as well, so I mean those are my
                 guesses.


Jamie Steinberg: Thank you both so much for your time.


Saul Rubinek:    Sure.


Eddie McClintock:   Thank you.


Operator:        Our next question comes from the line of Jamie Ruby with scifivision.com.
                 Please proceed with your question.


Saul Rubinek:    Hey Jamie.


Jamie Ruby:      Hello. Hi. Thanks for taking our call.


Saul Rubinek:    Sure. Our pleasure.


Eddie McClintock:   Sure.
Jamie Ruby:     Great. So can you both talk about the Christmas episode and also like what
                was your favorite part filming it?


Saul Rubinek:   Go ahead Eddie.


Eddie McClintock:     I think the Christmas episode is it‟s right in line with what we‟ve always
                tried to do with the Warehouse 13 episodes. They‟re a lot of fun and there‟s
                some tense moments but again at its heart it‟s a nice family show about this
                family of people that have come together at this strange warehouse out in
                South Dakota and I think it just stays true to the series and it‟s fun.


                And Paul Blackthorne who is our guest star does an amazing job and I guess
                my favorite part was when the nutcracker...


Saul Rubinek:   I could‟ve told you that that was his favorite part just because he gets to say
                the word nutcracker.


Eddie McClintock:     And I get to say nuts.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah. I could‟ve told you that. I have three favorite things that happened to
                me.


Eddie McClintock:     That‟s news.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah you‟ve talked long enough. I have three favorite things. One is that I got
                to work with Judd Hirsch who I‟d never met but had been such a fan of for so
                many years and we‟d never even meet before, and that was a huge thrill, he‟s
                a wonderful performer, great actor and was just a pleasure to have him on the
                show, and they had to age him up a little bit to make him old enough to be my
                dad, but that was a joy.
                And the second thing was that for the first time Jack Kenny, our head writer
                and show runner directed an episode and he was wonderful to work with and
                it was great to have him as the director of the show, and he wrote the script as
                well, so that was a pleasure, a real pleasure.


                And then I got to perform this little nocturne, or at least part of it, that I had
                been writing myself on the piano, which took the place of the nocturne that
                Artie has been working on for years that his father is so happy that he finished
                it. So I got to do that, so those were three great things for me.


Jamie Ruby:     Awesome. So I don‟t know this may I guess be revealed in the episode but I
                haven‟t seen it yet, what do you two think would be what your characters
                would most want for Christmas thinking of anything?


Saul Rubinek:   You meant Hanukkah for me didn‟t you?


Jamie Ruby:     Yes. Hanukkah I‟m sorry.


Eddie McClintock:   Pete would like to get all of his CD collection back because apparently it
                was lost in the mail from Washington, D.C. to South Dakota. He‟s kind of
                stuck out there at Leena‟s with no tunes, because Leena has Justin Bieber and
                she plays the same CD all day.


Saul Rubinek:   That‟s funny.


Eddie McClintock:   I know.


Saul Rubinek:   I think it actually happens for Artie. I think Artie is kind of like a Christmas
                and Hanukkah grump and he‟s kind of not really into all of that stuff and
                 really would prefer it all to go away, and partly because it would remind him
                 of the family that he doesn‟t have and he‟s reminded that he does already have
                 a family, which are these people, in fact we‟re all reminded of that in this
                 episode.


                 And Artie‟s life has been so solitary and so removed from ordinary family life
                 and he has to deal with so many dark things that holiday season for many
                 people around the world brings up what they don‟t have and what they can‟t
                 have, and that‟s certainly true for Artie and it‟s brought home to him in a very
                 real way by having his estranged father as part of the episode.


Jamie Ruby:      Okay great. Thank you very much both of you.


Saul Rubinek:    Sure.


Eddie McClintock:   Thank you.


Operator:        Our next question comes from the line of Pattye Grippo with Paszaz.com.
                 Please proceed with your question.


Saul Rubinek:    Hey Pattye.


(Pattye Grippo): Hi guys.


Saul Rubinek:    How‟re you doing?


(Pattye Grippo): How are you doing today?


Saul Rubinek:    We‟re good.
(Pattye Grippo): Great. Glad to hear that.


Saul Rubinek:     Where are you?


(Pattye Grippo): Los Angeles.


Saul Rubinek:     Oh you‟re in L.A., okay cool.


(Pattye Grippo): Yeah I‟m over here. Actually I wanted to know are there going to be any new
                  or special artifacts in this episode?


Saul Rubinek:     There always are, right. There always are and so yes absolutely there are,
                  there is stuff that we can‟t talk about on pain of death but that‟s one of the
                  joys of the show is that they throw in stuff more than one usually. But in this
                  case in our show I think it‟s just one, right Eddie, it‟s just one artifact. I
                  think...


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     ...as far as I remember.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah it‟s just the one. It‟s unusual, usually they throw in a bunch but it‟s a
                  special Christmas artifact that‟s all we can tell you.


(Pattye Grippo): Okay. Well we‟ll look forward to it.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah.
(Pattye Grippo): And I wanted to ask you Saul about Barney‟s Version, I saw it at AFI Fest this
                  year and how did you get involved with that project?


Saul Rubinek:     Well I‟ve been involved with the project before. There was a four-part radio
                  version of it done by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where I had
                  played Barney and I‟ve known the director Richard Lewis and the producer
                  Robert Lantos for many years and also I had worked with Mordecai Richler,
                  the novelist, way back 30 years ago I had done not one but two different
                  projects that were based on his short stories. And it was really nice.


                  As you know now from the movie, I can‟t talk too much about who the
                  character is without giving away something crucial that Barney doesn‟t know
                  about.


(Pattye Grippo): Right.


Saul Rubinek:     But it was only you know one great scene, I had to go to Rome to shoot it so
                  that was kind of fun and just me and Paul Giamatti and it was really great.
                  That‟s how I got involved there was, also because I‟m Canadian originally
                  and it‟s a Canadian film.


(Pattye Grippo): Right. Did you work at all with, well I guess you only did one day, you didn‟t
                  even get to see like Dustin Hoffman or Minnie Driver or the rest of the cast
                  then.


Saul Rubinek:     No. I worked with Dustin before though because I directed a movie called
                  Club Land with Steven Weber and Alan Alda that was written by Steven
                  Weber that was produced by Dustin, so that was about ten years ago. Yeah.
(Pattye Grippo): And real quickly let me ask one more about the episode. What can you guys
                  tell us about this bad Santa that we‟ve all heard about from the episode?


Eddie McClintock:    You don‟t want to mess with him because he will kick some A-S-S. And I
                  have to spell that out because my five-year-old‟s right here.


Saul Rubinek:     You know there‟s a great cartoon that, the great cartoonist Gahan Wilson his
                  stuff is quite often in the New Yorker, I don‟t know if you know his cartoon.


(Pattye Grippo): Right.


Saul Rubinek:     And there‟s one I remember from years ago is there‟s a little boy with his
                  covers up with his eyes huge with terror and the door is cracked open and a
                  very angry looking Santa is looking daggers at him and the caption underneath
                  is “I hear you‟ve been a naughty boy this year Jimmy.” And it‟s that kind of
                  terror that this bad Santa brings.


(Pattye Grippo): Okay. Well I‟m looking forward to it. Thanks a lot guys.


Saul Rubinek:     Sure.


Eddie McClintock:    Thank you.


Operator:         Our next question comes from the line of Michael Hinman with
                  AirlockAlpha.com. Please proceed with your question.


Saul Rubinek:     Hey Mike.


Michael Hinman: Well hello everybody. How‟re you doing?
Saul Rubinek:     Good. How are you?


Eddie McClintock:       Michael, how are you man?


Michael Hinman: Hey Eddie. What time is it in Bulgaria anyway that‟s my question.


Eddie McClintock:       10:18 p.m.


Michael Hinman: Oh, that‟s so late. Hey by the way I enjoyed the Christmas episode, I thought
                  it was awesome and...


Saul Rubinek:     Thank you.


Michael Hinman: ...when you guys first, when you guys first heard that they were doing a
                  holiday episode was there, you know was there excitement about it or was
                  there maybe a little bit fear thinking back to the whole time when Star Wars
                  tried to do this?


Saul Rubinek:     Star Wars?


Michael Hinman: Yeah you know the infamous Star Wars Christmas special that they did...


Saul Rubinek:     No.


Michael Hinman: ...back in the „70s.


Saul Rubinek:     No. What happened?


Michael Hinman: Yes. Oh that was like probably the most embarrassing thing that has ever been
                  broadcast but...
Saul Rubinek:     Really?


Michael Hinman: ...if you look, yeah if you look it up on YouTube it‟s scary.


Eddie McClintock:     Even more...


Saul Rubinek:     Wow.


Eddie McClintock:     ...even more embarrassing than that was that creature on the, oh my god
                  what‟s his name, on the Star Wars, (Jib-Jib), what was his name?


Michael Hinman: Oh Jar Jar Binks, yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     Jar Jar Binks.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah.


Michael Hinman: Yeah worse than that, I mean seriously it was...


Eddie McClintock:     More embarrassing than Jar Jar Binks?


Saul Rubinek:     No we were kind of excited about it, we were excited right away that we were
                  doing a Christmas episode. In fact...


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     ...that was kind of, yeah we were looking forward to it.
Eddie McClintock:     Yeah I think it‟s great because it kind of reminds people that we are there
                  and it kind of fills in the gap for fans who are bummed that we don‟t come on,
                  but every summer it‟s a long time to wait so it‟s a nice little gift.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah and then the idea got stolen right. A good friend of mine Tim Hutton is
                  starring in Leverage and I had done the pilot of Leverage and Tim Hutton had
                  asked me what we were doing this season last, before we started and I said
                  we‟re doing 12 plus one, and he said what do you mean 12 plus one. I said
                  we‟re doing 12 and then a Christmas episode. And he said what a good idea.
                  The next thing I know Leverage is doing a Christmas episode so.


Michael Hinman: Lot‟s of people, I didn‟t even know about that, and also too you know just
                  going with the episode a little bit with Paul Blackthorne‟s character, what
                  would be a like a bad Santa version of Pete? Like how would, what would he
                  be like?


Eddie McClintock:     Like kind of James Brown meets Carrot Top.


Michael Hinman: That would be kind of crazy. Well good luck with the movie out there Eddie
                  too by the way.


Eddie McClintock:     Just think, think James Brown with not as many dance moves and bright
                  orange hair.


Michael Hinman: That is pretty scary so well you know, good luck with the filming out there
                  Eddie and Saul Happy Hanukkah, great talking to you.


Saul Rubinek:     Thank you. You too. Goodbye.


Eddie McClintock:     Thanks. Thanks Michael. Good to talk to you man.
Michael Hinman: Yeah. Same here.


Operator:         Our next question comes from the line of Jenny (Rarden) with
                  tvismypacifier.com. Please proceed with your question.


Jenny (Rarden):   Hi guys.


Saul Rubinek:     Hey Jenny. How are you doing?


Jenny (Rarden):   I‟m good. Eddie, you know you‟re addicted to Twitter when you‟re in the
                  middle of a conference call and you‟re still tweeting.


Eddie McClintock:     Jenny you know I‟m an addict baby.


Saul Rubinek:     Is that what you‟re doing Eddie; you‟re tweeting as you...?


Eddie McClintock:     I‟ve been trying to tweet you back here but the Internet is actually like...


Saul Rubinek:     How the Bulgarian...


Eddie McClintock:     ...two guys out on a bicycle.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah. The famous Bulgarian Internet.


Eddie McClintock:     Two guys out on a bicycle and they‟re causing friction to make electricity
                  so it‟s kind of, it‟s taking a little while here.
Saul Rubinek:     Yeah by the way they take it very kindly out there in Bulgaria when they hear
                  you making fun of their country, you should, you‟ll have a really good time at
                  the service tomorrow.


Eddie McClintock:     I‟m not making fun, there are actually two guys, hey guys go a little faster.
                  I‟m telling you they‟re out there. I just threw them a couple sandwiches.


Jenny (Rarden):   Well I‟ve obviously spoken to you before Eddie but Saul this is the first time
                  I‟ve been on a call with you so I‟m very excited.


Saul Rubinek:     Nice to meet you too.


Jenny (Rarden):   At the end of the last episode Myka left, obviously she‟ll be back, the show
                  obviously wouldn‟t be the same without her. I‟m assuming she‟ll be back for a
                  holiday episode. Is that a correct assumption?


Saul Rubinek:     No. The holiday episode is a stand alone, this Christmas episode; this
                  Christmas/Hanukkah episode is really called the long lost episode in a way.
                  It‟s a stand alone episode that has nothing to do with any of the other story
                  arcs and...


Jenny (Rarden):   Oh so her leaving...


Saul Rubinek:     Is still in play. Yeah.


Jenny (Rarden):   Right. Okay. Well then that answered that question.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah.
Jenny (Rarden):   And then this obviously won‟t have anything to do with the holiday episode
                  but we were sad to see Pete‟s girlfriend go and Saul already has this definite
                  flirtation thing going on with the doctor. Can you guys tell us where your love
                  lives are going in the near future?


Saul Rubinek:     Well I mean if Eddie‟s character and Allison‟s character have anything to do
                  with it they would like to have Artie hook up with somebody just to get him
                  off their back so much, but also because I think that they want to see him have
                  love and some kind of connection other than work in his life.


                  And so he would but he‟s very reluctant, and people get stuck in their ways
                  when they get older and if he hasn‟t had it already he would be very nervous
                  about it.


                  We definitely, or I know that we‟re going to have Lindsay Wagner back, and
                  it‟s a wonderful character that she and the writers have created and it‟s a very
                  interesting little dance that‟s going on between Artie and her and that Pete is
                  trying to encourage.


                  One of my favorite episodes of last season was this, when Eddie and I got to
                  work with each other, actually the truth is that whenever Eddie and I get to
                  work with each other now we have a blast. We don‟t do it that often, very
                  often you know he‟s with Myka and I‟m with Allison which have their own
                  joys for us but when we have gotten together in episodes and we do have
                  byplay we really have a blast, so that‟s some of the favorite stuff we‟ve done.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah I mean for me watching Saul and getting to see Lindsay Wagner and
                  Saul work together for me was just, two such great pros and I just sat, you
                  know if you remember the scene up in the loft where Lindsay‟s character is
                  inadvertently tickling Saul, or Artie and it was just so great.
                  I mean it was funny and it was kind of one of those surreal moments for me as
                  an actor, who by all rights should be probably digging a ditch in Ohio
                  somewhere that I can sit back and watch two pros finesse a scene and I always
                  try and learn from stuff like that.


                  So I would love to see Lindsay come back and have an opportunity to
                  participate in some more of those scenes.


Jenny (Rarden):   Now my last question for both of you how are you most like your characters?


Saul Rubinek:     It‟s an interesting question. When you‟re doing a television show or a movie
                  and spend a lot of time going into a movie as you know for a few days or a
                  few weeks sometimes I‟ve been the lead but more often than not I‟ve been a
                  supporting actor and you create characters that are only meant to last for, and
                  given a quick impression.


                  When you‟re playing a lead in a television series as the four of us are, we
                  really have to rely on our own personalities a lot and the writers start to write
                  for us.


                  So we aren‟t a lot different from the characters that we‟re playing you know I
                  mean there are aspects of ourselves that may not you know, come to the fore
                  and I‟m certainly a family man, I‟ve been married 20 years, I have two kids
                  and I didn‟t do what Artie did which was sacrifice his entire life for his work
                  and for some greater cause like that, in that way I‟m completely different.


                  But when you‟re doing a show week after week you can‟t really put your
                  character in quotation marks, you‟re using yourself at all times and I‟m pretty
                  sure Eddie‟s going to agree with me.
Eddie McClintock:     Yeah I mean like Saul said when you‟re doing the same, playing the same
                  character for such an extended period of time it just feels like to me if I try
                  and be anything other than just kind of who I am the audience is going to
                  catch me in a lie, so I just try and just kind of be, there‟s more of me in Pete
                  than I would care to admit I guess because. Yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     Or that we can tolerate frankly.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah. Yes. So I mean I just basically show up and just hang out with my
                  friends, that‟s basically what it‟s about.


Saul Rubinek:     That‟s the issue with what happens on any television series and all the actors
                  that I know who are on long term television series say the same thing. If you
                  really got to play some very eccentric, quirky character week after week that
                  has nothing to do with you you‟re going to have a problem, the audience will
                  start to feel that the character is false.


                  You really have got to find a way, the writers, the producers, the network,
                  everybody‟s got to be behind them creating a character that suits you once
                  you‟ve been cast, or they‟ve got to fire you and find somebody else that suits
                  the role better, you know.


                  And in this case pretty much what you‟re seeing is who we are. We obviously
                  didn‟t choose to work for the FBI or the Secret Service, we chose a different
                  line of life, a line of work. But our personalities are very similar, maybe with
                  the exception of CCH Pounder who‟s kind of goofy and funny and not nearly
                  as serious as she shows herself to be.


Jenny (Rarden):   Right.
Eddie McClintock:    Yeah I would say that...


Jenny (Rarden):   Well, it was nice talking - I‟m sorry, what?


Eddie McClintock:    I would say, sorry, I would say that her, she has the biggest contrast in
                  regards to who she is.


Saul Rubinek:     Yes.


Jenny (Rarden):   Well it was great talking to both. Thank you very much.


Eddie McClintock:    Great to talk to you.


Operator:         Our next question comes from the line of Sammi Turano with TV Grapevine.
                  Please proceed with your question.


Saul Rubinek:     Hey Sammi.


Sammi Turano:     Hi. How are you? Hi. Happy holidays.


Saul Rubinek:     Thank you.


Sammi Turano:     Okay my first question is what is your favorite holiday memory? I know
                  someone mentioned tradition before but I want to hear both of your favorite
                  holiday memories.


Saul Rubinek:     Wow. My holiday memories, well I grew up with Hanukkah and married a
                  woman who grew up with Christmas and my kids have both with great
                exuberance for, my daughter‟s 19 and my son is 15 and we celebrate
                everything.


                We love holidays and my wife Eleanor has been a huge fan of that. We love
                ritual, those rituals. We love comfort food and favorite holiday foods. We‟re
                going to have a Hanukkah party next week with Latkes, those potato pancakes
                and dreidel playing and we‟re going to have, we love...


Eddie McClintock:   The guy from Taxi?


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah right. And we‟re going to do Christmas as well. We love all of it. So I
                don‟t know if it‟s a favorite one thing but it‟s certainly those ceremonies
                including Passover, Christmas, all of those things are really important to our
                family, so those are special times for us.


Sammi Turano:   Wonderful. Sounds good.


Saul Rubinek:   It is good.


Sammi Turano:   And, I‟m sorry?


Eddie McClintock:   For me, I remember waking up as a kid one morning and going downstairs
                and my parents had gotten me the Guns of Navarone...


Saul Rubinek:   Well that explains it.


Eddie McClintock:   ...army man kit, like the army man set. It came with a big, giant plastic
                mountain with the Guns of Navarone in there and the Germans and the
                American like commandos and it came with tiny little barbed, like plastic
                barbed wire and there were tanks and stuff so.
Saul Rubinek:   Wow.


Sammi Turano:   Wow it sounds cool. And my next question is, sorry?


Eddie McClintock:   Yeah.


Sammi Turano:   Yeah. My next question is dream guest star. I know Allison wants Betty
                White but who do you guys want?


Saul Rubinek:   Oh for favorite guest stars. Well I want my friend Brent Spiner to come do the
                show and I‟m hoping that they create a character that he wants to do. I worked
                with him probably 25 years ago doing second season of Star Trek the Next
                Generation in a great, great episode and we had done theater together in New
                York years before that too. So I would love to have Brent, who‟s kind of a
                Syfy icon, and a great guy and a wonderful actor on the show.


Sammi Turano:   Very good. Who? Sorry?


Eddie McClintock:   Bruce Campbell.


Sammi Turano:   Okay. Oh very nice.


Eddie McClintock:   Yeah. I‟d like to see how his chin and my chin cohabitate. See if our chins
                could fit in the same frame.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah. That‟s not likely.


Sammi Turano:   That sounds interesting.
Saul Rubinek:   And also a really boring reason to have an actor on a show, but there you go,
                that‟s our Eddie.


Eddie McClintock:   Me. There you go. Yeah I‟ve been drinking.


Sammi Turano:   And he‟s not sharing.


Saul Rubinek:   Drinking the beer in Bulgaria, well he‟s in Bulgaria what can you do, you
                know.


Sammi Turano:   I know. I know, its good for you.


Saul Rubinek:   At 10:00 at night, you know.


Eddie McClintock:   I‟m drinking potato vodka.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah absolutely.


Sammi Turano:   Oh nice. Sounds good.


Saul Rubinek:   He‟s not.


Sammi Turano:   No he‟s not.


Saul Rubinek:   No he‟s kidding.


Sammi Turano:   Okay. Well thank you both.


Eddie McClintock:   Am I?
Saul Rubinek:   Thanks a lot.


Sammi Turano:   I don‟t know.


Eddie McClintock:   Thank you so much


Saul Rubinek:   Who do you want to see on the show?


Sammi Turano:   Who do I want to see on the show?


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah.


Sammi Turano:   I‟m agree, I‟m with Allison, Betty White.


Saul Rubinek:   Betty White. Okay. We‟ll start the campaign going.


Sammi Turano:   Oh we already have on Allison and I.


Saul Rubinek:   Okay excellent.


Sammi Turano:   On Facebook.


Saul Rubinek:   Excellent.


Eddie McClintock:   Go Betty White.


Sammi Turano:   Yay.


Eddie McClintock:   I want Leslie Nielsen.
Sammi Turano:   Oh.


Eddie McClintock:     Too soon?


Sammi Turano:   Too soon. Yeah I miss him.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah, too soon yeah.


Sammi Turano:   Yeah. Well thank you both. I appreciate it. Happy holidays.


Saul Rubinek:   Thanks.


Eddie McClintock:     Thanks so much.


Operator:       Our next question...


Saul Rubinek:   That‟s really good Eddie, a Bruce Campbell chin joke and a Leslie Nielsen
                dead joke. Really good. You‟re doing well. Maybe you should be drinking
                potato vodka.


Eddie McClintock:     My wife is just sitting across the room looking at me just shaking her
                head.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah. So we‟re all shaking our heads. And we better get another question. Get
                another question here so you can really screw things up. Go ahead.


Eddie McClintock:     Help me. Help me.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah. I‟m trying, you know, but you‟re 6,000 miles away. Go ahead. Who‟ve
                we got next?
Operator:         And our next question comes from the line of Suzanne Lanoue with The TV
                  MegaSite. Please proceed with your question.


Saul Rubinek:     Good luck Suzanne. I hope Eddie answers your questions in some kind of
                  amusing and intelligent passion.


Suzanne Lanoue: Well I hate to have to follow that but.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah it‟s going to be tough.


Eddie McClintock:     So do I.


Suzanne Lanoue: I do have a semi-serious question anyway.


Saul Rubinek:     Okay.


Suzanne Lanoue: Syfy has a little promo click on their Web site where Claudia goes to talk
                  about father into coming to see him because she said that he‟s dying and
                  there‟s a young guy with her, yeah and there‟s a young guy with her. What‟s
                  that?


Saul Rubinek:     Her brother.


Suzanne Lanoue: It‟s her brother?


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah there was an episode when he was introduced when Claudia‟s character
                  was first introduced, it was the fourth episode...


Suzanne Lanoue: Right.
Saul Rubinek:     ...of the first season.


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh I didn‟t recognize him.


Saul Rubinek:     That was the guy that was in limbo that she kidnapped Artie to...


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh okay.


Saul Rubinek:     ...in revenge for, yes. So it‟s her brother who...


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh okay.


Saul Rubinek:     ...worked at CERN and eventually you know, left CERN and he‟s become a
                  kind of recurring character.


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh I did not recognize him.


Saul Rubinek:     The role of the family which got left. Yeah. That‟s who that is.


Suzanne Lanoue: Okay well thanks for telling me that because I was just going to ask why Pete
                  wasn‟t with her doing this but yeah that makes more sense actually.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah.


Suzanne Lanoue: Okay. Well are we going to get to see you think Kate Logan come back?


Saul Rubinek:     What do you think Eddie?
Eddie McClintock:   I would say the chances of Kate Logan coming back are almost definite.
                 You know Tia was so great to have around and she, I know she is interested in
                 coming back, I think she had a good time on the show and I think we would
                 all love to see her come back because she‟s just a joy to be around for me.


Saul Rubinek:    We‟ve created, or at least the writers/producers have created a kind of a rep
                 company of wonderful actors including the people we‟ve talked about and
                 Lindsay and Rene Auberjonois and wonderful actors.


                 And with the success of the show it becomes just easier once people know
                 what the show is and they like it then it‟s easier, it becomes easier for people
                 to be attracted to the show and to make time to do it and so that‟s really good
                 for us, it‟s one of the benefits of being the number one show on this network
                 and we get great people to work with. So we‟re hoping that that‟s an extended
                 family on Warehouse 13...


Suzanne Lanoue: Yeah.


Saul Rubinek:    ...because we‟ve only, there‟s only four of us that are regulars on the show and
                 we depend on great people to work with and they‟ve been coming in droves.
                 We‟ve been very lucky.


Eddie McClintock:   Apparently Johnny Depp...


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh yeah you have great...


Saul Rubinek:    What‟d you say Eddie?


Eddie McClintock:   Apparently Johnny Depp has expressed some…
Woman:           Oh my gosh.


Eddie McClintock:    ...interested.


Saul Rubinek:    Though were not in Bulgaria and although he‟s not actually drinking potato
                 vodka he probably should be.


Eddie McClintock:    Help me.


Suzanne Lanoue: Maybe it‟s something in the water.


Saul Rubinek:    It‟s just Eddie, you know, that‟s the way, I mean the, these tedisms come out.


Eddie McClintock:    Poor Saul has to endure me.


Saul Rubinek:    Well he throws out ten bad ones and then one lands. See normally he‟s got an
                 editor but he doesn‟t today so we‟re getting it all.


Eddie McClintock:    Tell him to de-moan.


Suzanne Lanoue: Unedited, uncensored.


Saul Rubinek:    Yeah uncensored Eddie is actually the name of a new horror film that Syfy‟s
                 going to be, he thinks it‟s called Boogeyman but not really.


Suzanne Lanoue: Be a great extra for the DVD.


Saul Rubinek:    Yeah. Uncensored Eddie.


Suzanne Lanoue: Just give him a video camera and let him go.
Saul Rubinek:      No. They‟re trying to sell these DVDs remember.


Eddie McClintock:      Yeah.


Suzanne Lanoue: So, well we‟ve talked about the holidays, what about New Years, do you guys
                   have any New Years resolutions that you‟re thinking about?


Saul Rubinek:      Resolutions. Oh my god. I‟m trying not to make them anymore. All they do is
                   depress me. I‟m going to lose weight, I‟m going to lose weight. I‟ve been
                   thinking...


Suzanne Lanoue: You say it now it‟s, if you say it now it‟s out there, all of us have heard it so
                   you have to stick to it.


Saul Rubinek:      Now I do? Okay. Okay. Artie‟s going to lose weight but I didn‟t say how
                   much weight, could be ounces.


Suzanne Lanoue: Okay.


Eddie McClintock:      I‟m going to try and be nicer to Saul.


Saul Rubinek:      Yeah. This is not time, you know. Do you actually ever have a New Years
                   resolution, do you ever do that Eddie?


Eddie McClintock:      Not really no.


Saul Rubinek:      See I told you, I knew I‟d get the truth out of him, not really.


Suzanne Lanoue: No.
Saul Rubinek:      There you go.


Suzanne Lanoue: Well I guess...


Eddie McClintock:      New Years.


Suzanne Lanoue: I was going to ask, but Myka‟s not in the episode right, so I was going to ask
                   you if there was going to be any mistletoe, the thing for Pete and Myka,
                   anyone else?


Saul Rubinek:      Myka is in the episode because the holiday episode is a stand-alone episode
                   that has nothing to do...


Suzanne Lanoue: Oh okay. I‟m sorry.


Saul Rubinek:      ...with the way the season. Yeah you haven‟t seen it yet. So she is in the
                   episode and it really is kind of call it the long lost episode as if it happened the
                   Christmas before and so it isn‟t related to any of the story arcs that, and you
                   know, that...


Suzanne Lanoue: Okay. So will there be any...


Saul Rubinek:      ...have happened.


Suzanne Lanoue: ...mistletoe, in fact, oh there is, yes there is, I forgot.


Eddie McClintock:      There‟s a little...
Saul Rubinek:      Well I forgot, somebody had asked if we had any special artifacts there are
                   quite a few actually. Now that I remember there are quite a few being used,
                   there‟s one really special artifact, Christmas artifact and then there are quite a
                   few others of which maybe mistletoe is one. There you go.


Suzanne Lanoue: All right. Well that‟s very, good fact out of you, that‟s good.


Saul Rubinek:      Yeah.


Eddie McClintock:     Warehouse 13 explores a little guy on guy.


Saul Rubinek:      Eddie, Eddie, Eddie.


Suzanne Lanoue: So Pete and Artie are going to be kissing under the mistletoe.


Saul Rubinek:      Eddie zip it. Eddie.


Eddie McClintock:     Come on. Come on Saul.


Saul Rubinek:      Oh man. And he‟s actually got a script that he‟s willing to give you I‟m sure.


Suzanne Lanoue: Just text it to me all right.


Saul Rubinek:      All you have to do is ask him, he‟ll tweet the whole script.


Suzanne Lanoue: What about Pete and Valda. I think that would be a good thing that we‟d see.


Saul Rubinek:      I mean yeah, no that‟s an after 1:00 am episode. Yeah. So you don‟t...


Suzanne Lanoue: I think five Web sites just sprung up Pete loves Valda.
Saul Rubinek:     Valda, yeah. There you go. Thanks for that though, for our family show trying
                  to sell our holiday family show now images of Pete and Valda are in my head,
                  excellent. Thank you for that.


Suzanne Lanoue: There‟s a bunch of fan picked out there already I‟m sure.


Saul Rubinek:     Yes. And they‟re very healthy fan based material.


Suzanne Lanoue: Well just one last question. Eddie are you going to be back in the states in
                  time for the holidays with your family or are you going to be just stuck out
                  there in Bulgaria?


Eddie McClintock:     Well let me just restate for the record that I‟m, I love, I‟m having a great
                  time here in Bulgaria doing this, I‟m doing a movie for Syfy but I will be back
                  on the 19th. We come back and then we‟re going to jump in the car and drive
                  six hours to Scottsdale after our 17-hour flight from Bulgaria. So yeah.


Saul Rubinek:     Well planned.


Eddie McClintock:     Yes. Lots of traveling. Actually we‟ll have our (soup)…


Suzanne Lanoue: All right. Well you have a good time.


Saul Rubinek:     Thanks. Good holidays to you.


Suzanne Lanoue: All right.


Eddie McClintock:     Thank you.
Suzanne Lanoue: You too both. Thank you.


Saul Rubinek:   Bye.


THIS IS WHERE THE SPOILERTV INTERVIEW FITS INTO THE CONFERENCE CALL.
Operator:       Our next question comes from the line of Joseph Dilworth with Pop Culture
                Zoo. Please proceed with your question.


Joseph Dilworth: Hey guys. How are you doing?


Saul Rubinek:   Hey Joe.


Eddie McClintock:   What‟s up Joe?


Joe Dilworth:   First of all I have to say best conference call ever.


Saul Rubinek:   Really? Oh good.


Joe Dilworth:   Oh yeah you guys have been great.


Saul Rubinek:   Okay cool.


Eddie McClintock:   Like TiVo and Twitter stuff.


Joe Dilworth:   My first question is, yeah exactly. My first question is considering that you,
                you know you shot this in probably this summer in Toronto how hard did you
                find it trying to get into the holiday spirit that early in the year?
Saul Rubinek:   You know there‟s an old joke about doing winter in summer. The writers on
                MASH used to get, years ago used to like getting comments from actors and
                they used to get all kinds of notes.


                But then sometimes, this is a story Alan Alda told me, that sometimes you
                know one actor would say well he‟s getting changes, maybe I should get
                changes and sometimes when they got too many changes the writers would
                write a winter episode shot in 102 degree Calabasas desert where they‟d be
                around a barrel filled with fire wearing parkas, you know.


                So they‟d be shooting this in 102-degree weather and that was the way they
                would get back at the actors. It was tough, we were hot, it was August and it
                was (unintelligible) turn into winter and covered in whatever they called,
                whatever that snow was, I think that‟s probably why they set part of the
                episode in Los Angeles so that they could at least get outside and do summer
                looking Christmas but.


Eddie McClintock:   Yeah the snowball that Myka throws at Pete...


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah what was that?


Eddie McClintock:   ... it hits me in the back of the head and then it kind of fell down into my
                shirt and it was this gooey, the glyceriney like conglomeration of like goo. It
                was like a ball of goo.


Saul Rubinek:   Excellent. A snotball.


Eddie McClintock:   A snowy snotball if you will, but I remember Jack Kenny, the exec
                producer when we were, because he also directed that episode as Saul had said
                earlier and he was like you guys to production make sure that these...
Saul Rubinek:     Oh yeah.


Eddie McClintock:     ...stages are air conditioned and he forced production to go and rent like
                  two or three extra...


Saul Rubinek:     Mammoth‟s, yeah that‟s right.


Eddie McClintock:     ...mammoth AC‟s so that we weren‟t just burning up in there. I mean not
                  just for the fact that they wanted the production to look decent but also to keep
                  us comfortable, and that...


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah. The good fortune of having a show runner that used to be an actor so he
                  can feel for us sometimes.


Joseph Dilworth: Right.


Eddie McClintock:     We‟re not just meat puppets to him, although he may not admit that in
                  public.


Saul Rubinek:     Yeah I think one of the favorite things that Jack used to say was that you
                  know, Alfred Hitchcock is misquoted, he never said that actors were cattle. He
                  said they should be treated as cattle.


Joseph Dilworth: Right. Well Saul the highlight for me for the episode were the scenes with
                  Judd Hirsch and you guys just nailed it and it seemed like you guys would be
                  father and son. How easy was it to...


Saul Rubinek:     He‟s too young to be my dad. He‟s too young by at least ten years. But they
                  aged him up a little bit you know and he walked a little bit more slowly
                 because he‟s probably in better shape than I am and so I noticed actually
                 watching the episode that he, it‟s very subtle what he does with his
                 movements, how he gets up and off a couch, how he sits down. He aged
                 himself in very subtle ways.


                 When you‟re working with great people it‟s effortless, you show up, you‟re in
                 the scene, before you know it‟s over. It‟s very simple.


                 And I‟ve noticed that my friends who are in different professions that are
                 similar where skills are used in front of an audience like especially athletes,
                 that when athletes are working together collaboratively, when a team is
                 working, when you watch a great double play, it just looks easy doesn‟t it?


Joseph Dilworth: Right.


Saul Rubinek:    It looks easy and when it looks easy it‟s because it is. The years of experience
                 have allowed it to be that way or people like each other and they‟ve
                 collaborated well. Of course in acting sometimes you‟re watching a movie and
                 you find out later oh my god these people hated each other but those love
                 scenes were so hot, you know.


                 And there‟s the magic of editing and the magic of movies that I guess
                 wouldn‟t happen in the same way in a double play situation. But...


Joseph Dilworth: Right.


Saul Rubinek:    ...all I can say is that it was a joy, it was really a joy, it was very simple. I felt
                 like I‟d worked with him for years. It‟s kind of a similar thing happened to
                 Allison and I the very first time we worked together, I felt like we‟d worked
                  together for years, even though there‟s, you know, 30, 40 years separating us
                  in age.


Joseph Dilworth: Right. Well one last comment, Mrs. Frederic was sorely missed in this episode
                  but I only assume with her ability to get in and out of buildings undetected she
                  was out helping Santa Clause, so.


Saul Rubinek:     Perfect. Yes. Excellent. I like that.


Joseph Dilworth: Great episode and looking forward to Season Three. Thank you guys.


Saul Rubinek:     Thanks a lot.


Eddie McClintock:     Thanks man. Thank you.


Operator:         Our next question comes from the line of Ian Cullen with SciFi Pulse. Please
                  proceed with your question.


Ian Cullen:       Hey guys. How‟re you doing?


Saul Rubinek:     We‟re good.


Eddie McClintock:     Hey Ian.




Ian Cullen:       Hey. I‟ve got a bit of a hypothetical question for you guys. You know before
                  you were talking about what actors you would like to see come on the show so
                  I‟m going to (unintelligible) a little bit and ask what classic cartoon character
                  would you like to come on the show and how do you think that‟d play out?
Saul Rubinek:   Wow what classic cartoon character would work well on Warehouse 13?
                What an interesting question. You know, I always try to think of what would
                be the least likely not the most likely cartoon character, so rather than any of
                the superhero characters or any of those characters would seem to fit into our
                universe, what occurs to me immediately is those Tubby and Nancy comics
                and you know...


Eddie McClintock:   What?


Saul Rubinek:   ...or Peanuts characters.


Eddie McClintock:   Tubby and Nancy?


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah don‟t you, that‟s before your time. There‟s, well Peanuts characters
                would be awesome on our show because it‟s so un-Warehouse, it says nothing
                to do with our universe whatsoever. But to have...


Eddie McClintock:   How about Archie and Jugghead.


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah. To see, well actually Jugghead is probably, that hat is probably an
                artifact you know.


Eddie McClintock:   My god that‟s a question that, man I don‟t know.


Saul Rubinek:   Well we‟re answering it anyhow.


Eddie McClintock:   I‟ve just got Wylie Coyote was pitched to me on here on Twitter from
                Tvismypacifier, so that would be a good one.
Ian Cullen:     That‟d be cool. You know what about Daffy Duck?


Saul Rubinek:   Yeah Daffy Duck, excellent, because he‟d probably take over from Artie and
                start running the warehouse and that‟s what he would do immediately, we‟d
                have to get Elmer Fudd in there to shoot him and there would be a big mess,
                there‟d be animal rights people, it‟d be terrible.


Ian Cullen:     Yeah that‟d be fun. One of my favorite episodes from Season Two was the
                one involving the artifact from the comic book. Now if either of you two, you
                know have super powers or could have some sort of super power what would
                it be and how do you think you‟d use it?


Saul Rubinek:   The idea of having super powers it‟s like, the expression a busman‟s holiday,
                it‟s like a bus driver who goes on vacation but it‟s ending up on a bus going
                on vacation. It‟s like bringing coals to New Castle.


                Having super powers is kind of like the daily life of Artie. He‟s got these
                artifacts that when you use them actually do approximate having super powers
                and all he knows about super powers is that all they do is they have to be
                cataloged, they have to be neutralized, they can really destroy people‟s lives.
                In fact they can be dangerous to the planet and so he doesn‟t fantasize about
                that, doesn‟t fantasize about having super powers.


                What he fantasizes about is not having to deal with any of these things, have a
                life of normalcy where cause and effect have logical and natural order. You
                know what I‟m saying? For anything to do with super powers it‟s not in his,
                his everyday life is doing that.


                If he could really have them, if he could create anything that would have a
                super power it would be that these things didn‟t exist, that there were not such
                thing as artifacts that could be imbued with these powers that were deadly and
                insane, and that there was no need for a world where Warehouse 13, where all
                these 13 warehouses had to exist in order to protect humanity from itself and
                from the things that they‟ve done and so that‟s my answer.


Ian Cullen:     And what about you Eddie?


Eddie McClintock:   If I had super powers it would be the ability to get my sons to go to bed
                before 11:00 at night every night.


Ian Cullen:     That‟s a great one. And one final question.


Eddie McClintock:   Yes.


Ian Cullen:     One final question for Saul. You‟ve been doing a movie called The Suspect at
                St. Mark‟s Place. Could you tell maybe a little about it please?


Saul Rubinek:   No. It‟s on IMDb as a movie that I have been doing, it‟s not been shot. I think
                they‟re still trying to get their financing. So that IMDb quote is put up, you
                know I‟m not in control of what IMDb puts up there. So that movie no, has
                not been done yet. I hope it is done and I can‟t talk too much about it until it‟s
                actually you know, ready to go so. Sorry about that.


Ian Cullen:     Sounds like IMDb getting it wrong again.


Saul Rubinek:   I don‟t know if they‟ve got it wrong, they‟ve put up stuff and what do they say
                about it, they say that it‟s in production?
Ian Cullen:     Yeah. Said it‟s in production and the comment says here is that it‟s set in 1919
                New York City against a backdrop of a group of young men to have a safe
                tested and one is befriended by a notorious (unintelligible) family.


Saul Rubinek:   That‟s very funny. No the most recent film that I‟ve done is Barney‟s Version
                with Paul Giamatti and Minnie Driver and Dustin Hoffman that‟s going to be
                released in the theaters generally in January. I think they‟re doing a pre-Oscar
                qualification in December in New York and Los Angeles. But that‟s the most
                recent film that I‟ve done that‟s coming out.


Ian Cullen:     Okay guys. Well thanks for the time and answering my questions. Loving the
                show.


Saul Rubinek:   Sure.


Ian Cullen:     I‟ve not missed an episode and I hope you all have a happy holiday, great
                holidays.


Eddie McClintock:   You too man. Take care. Thanks.


Saul Rubinek:   Thank you so much.


Ian Cullen:     Will do.


Operator:       Our next question comes from the line of Lance Carter with Daily Actor.
                Please proceed with your question.


Lance Carter:   Hey guys.


Saul Rubinek:   Hello. How are you?
Eddie McClintock:   Hey man.


Lance Carter:   I‟m well. Now you guys prefer working on a film where you‟re creating a
                character for a couple months or when you‟re doing a show like where you
                guys said earlier basically playing yourself?


Saul Rubinek:   That‟s a really good question. After all these years I can tell you it depends on
                so many things and on what the people are like and whether you‟ve got a great
                script. It really can be a nightmare doing a television series where you‟re
                locked into something with people that you have trouble with.


                And I‟d have friends who‟ve been on series where you know the show runners
                and the writing staff and it‟s all been, there‟ve been tremendous insecurity
                from the network and so things change constantly, everybody‟s nervous about
                how much money they‟re spending, trying to get an audience.


                I‟ve never been in a show that‟s been the number one show of a network and
                I‟ve never been on a show ever that‟s had this kind of support from a network
                and a studio and had such a happy experience. So there‟s nothing really in all
                the 40 years that I‟ve been working that can compare to doing this show. I can
                say that without any qualms, it‟s really a joy from beginning to end.


                Of course we all like doing different things. We like variety and we are
                getting a lot of variety on this show. The character isn‟t stuck in one area. So
                it really depends, I‟ve done radio and theater, I‟m trying to do more theater
                now because it‟s a completely different joy that happens as an actor, as you
                know.


                But yeah, the show is offering all of us a lot of opportunity for versatility.
Lance Carter:   Yeah. And what about you Eddie?


Eddie McClintock:     Well I mean the closest thing I‟ve ever come to doing a film was I played
                Lauren Deen‟s hands.


Saul Rubinek:   (Unintelligible) he‟s doing with his hands now.


Eddie McClintock:     In Lawrence Kasdan‟s Mumford.


Lance Carter:   You‟re doing a film now though.


Eddie McClintock:     Yeah. I mean it‟s a TV movie so I think it‟s a little different, you know.
                But I‟m not, I can‟t really remember what the question was exactly
                (unintelligible).


Lance Carter:   (Unintelligible) and my last question is what‟s your advice to actors?


Saul Rubinek:   About what?


Lance Carter:   Just in terms of you know, somebody wants to come to L.A. and give a go at
                it?


Saul Rubinek:   Here‟s one piece of advice, don‟t listen to anybody giving you advice. There‟d
                be one thing to not do. You know if you can be advised away from doing
                acting you probably don‟t belong there, you know. It‟s a terribly difficult
                thing to choose, it‟s kind of got to choose you.


Eddie McClintock:     I can say that I can just speak from my experience, and I‟ve had a lot of
                young people from back in Ohio where I‟m from who have asked me what
                they should do. And I mean I don‟t know what they should do but I can tell
                them what I did.


                And that was I got into, I started taking class here or in L.A. because you
                know it‟s, the business itself is so cold. I mean not to be too trite but it‟s a
                cold, cold business and when you‟re in class for me, it becomes a bit of an
                extended family because you‟re probably from, you‟re probably not from L.A.
                when you get there.


                So you learn, you develop a support system in class and it‟s a great way to
                meet people and do showcases and I met my manager through my acting class
                and a lot of people that I know that are still working I met through class.


                So that was probably the most important thing for me is I got in class with a
                good, reputable acting coach and I studied and studied and studied and
                worked really hard to feel that I had, that I was qualified to actually walk into
                a room and call myself an actor so.


Lance Carter:   Cool. Thanks guys. Appreciate it.


Saul Rubinek:   Sure.


Eddie McClintock:   Thanks.


Gary Morgenstein:   Yeah. We have time for one more question.


Saul Rubinek:   Okay.


Operator:       And our question is a follow-up question from the line of Jamie Ruby with
                Scifivision.com. Please proceed with your question.
Saul Rubinek:   Hey Jamie.


Jamie Ruby:     Hello again. I‟ll make it quick.


Eddie McClintock:   Hi.


Jamie Ruby:     Can, you both I know Saul you have a little bit already, but can you both talk
                about your movies that are coming up?


Eddie McClintock:   Sure. I guess I‟ll start. I‟m doing a TV, they call it a creature feature here
                on Syfy and it‟s called The Legend of the Boogeyman and it‟s really, it‟s
                really a lot of fun, SyFy has been really, really good to me and they want me
                to kind of bring my comedy to what otherwise would be a kind of a horror
                film kind of creature feature.


                And again I think it‟s kind of like my all time favorite, one of my all time
                favorite movies is Evil Dead 2 and the reason being is Bruce Campbell was so
                brilliant in his ability to inject comedy into what was just a very well done
                Sam Raimi horror film and the only reason I reference that is because if we
                can do anything that‟s even close to that, that would be my dream.


                So young Emma Sams is in the movie with me, you remember Emma Sams
                from Dynasty and she was also on General Hospital back when Luke and
                Laura were getting married and she is amazing and I‟m in Bulgaria for three
                weeks and I actually tweeted a picture today from the set.


Jamie Ruby:     Yeah I saw that.
Eddie McClintock:   And (unintelligible) I said that the film is not about moonbeams and
                daffodils so it‟s really kind of a clever story about who the boogeyman
                actually may be and I play a local cop who stumbles upon this terrible, terrible
                creature and hopefully I can help save the day.


Jamie Ruby:     Awesome. Saul...


Saul Rubinek:   Along with, well Barney‟s Version is coming out in January. I did another
                film that I‟m hoping is going to get a U.S. release and for anybody who wants
                to find it it‟s called Kill Me Please and you can look it up by googling Kill Me
                Please Belgium movie and take a look at it because I had to go to Belgium last
                January and did a film where I improvised in French.


                It‟s a really a very small, independent film, however it won a number of prizes
                including best film at the Rome Film Festival this year. And it‟s a really
                interesting movie about clinics that actually exist in Switzerland where people
                go to commit suicide, but even though that sounds really somber and bleak it‟s
                a very funny black comedy, very funny movie.


                So I‟m hoping that, I know it‟s released now in Europe and who knows, it
                might even be in Bulgaria there Eddie. But it might, but I‟m hoping because
                it‟s winning prizes and great reviews that it‟ll come to North America soon.
                People want to look it up it‟s called Kill Me Please. They should look that up,
                it‟s really funny.
