View the Passchendaele trailer online! Thanks to Felicity for the link.
Airing on 7th January at 8.30 pm ET/PT on TVTropolis, "Whatever happened to?" profiles three "Men In Uniform" who suited up for the TV cause - George Takei, the enterprising ensign who explored the universe on 'Star Trek', Adrian Zmed, who walked the beat on 'TJ Hooker', and Paul Gross, the misplaced Mountie in 'Due South'.
Exciting news! The much-anticipated Passchendaele trailer will be premiering on ET Canada on Thursday 20th December . It will also be shown in movie theatres prior to Charlie Wilson's War, which opens on Friday 21st December.
See more pictures here from the Gemini Awards Gala, thanks to Claudine!
Paul has updated the passchendaelethemovie.com blog with an article describing his moving trip to Belgium over the weekend of Remembrance Day.
Paul and Martha recently spent a few days in Belgium (more here, here and here). A major commemoration programme has been running in Flanders this year to mark the 90th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele, and Paul received a very special invitation to attend a Canadian commemorative weekend from 9th-11th November. Queen Elizabeth II and the King and Queen of Belgium attended the opening ceremony at Tyne Cot Cemetery in July (pictures) so it was a huge honour for him to be asked to the closing ceremony on Remembrance Day. Coming right on the tail of filming "Passchendaele", the weekend was no doubt particularly emotional for Paul.
The due South fan convention RCW 139: Toronto Holiday will take place from 15th-17th August 2008 at the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville (the former Radisson where RCW 139 was held from 1997-1999). David Marciano has been the first cast member to confirm his attendance. More at RCW139.org.
