At Comic-Con a couple of years ago, within ten minutes of meeting the honorable Brian Prisco for the first time ever, we walked by the booth for “The Guild” and saw Felicia Day in person. I don’t really have a point, except maybe that when I think of Ms. Day, I think of Prisco. So, I got that going for me.
In any case, Sie-Fie (if they can arbitrarily misspell it, so can I), has cast Day in a guest spot in the new season of “Eureka,” playing a dorky scientist sort, which I know narrows it down to only 3/4 of the characters on the show. It seems like a good fit, in that the character appears to be for the most part the same character that she plays on “The Guild” and other shows on which she pops up. I suppose that we could be totally contrarian and argue that it’s called “acting” and not “being yourself” but let’s face it, if we like that same character an actor always plays, we sort of expect them to be that character. It becomes their brand name. We’ll call it the Clooney Corollary. I don’t know what it is the Corollary to, but I felt the alliteration was worth it.
Here’s a nifty little clip featuring Day talking about her character and the show, interspersed a bit with takes from her scenes.
“Eureka” starts its fourth and a half or fifth (depending how you count their arbitrary six month breaks in the middle of seasons) this evening.
