    Adam Baldwin gets a new gig. What must John Casey USMC think of his alter-ego being in the Navy

    Adam Baldwin’s next project will premier on 22 June on TNT. It’s called “The Last Ship”. Just a reminder.

      Already on my “to do” list. I’m hoping for something fun.

      And just today there was a nice write-up on it on TV Guides “On the Set”.

      For the series, this active vessel has been given the fictional moniker USS Nathan James, the floating home and only safe haven for Capt. Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) and his crew of 217 sailors after an airborne virus kills 80 percent of the world’s population. It’s up to Dr. Scott to identify the origin of the disease and manufacture a vaccine before mankind is annihilated.

      “Going Big” seems to be in, these days, when it comes to apocalyptic TV.

    The Last Ship was pretty good. Some military protocol issues (being ex-military I notice these things), like 2 O-5s on one ship, just not done.

    Otherwise, pretty much Walking Dead at sea. Interesting that Adam’s character looks to be setting up to buck the CO. Could be good. Next week looks like the whole rest of the show. Going pretty fast. I thought it was 10-12 episodes.

    I just caught up on the last episode and when Mike (Adam) went in to talk to Quincy with the cigar it immediately reminded me of Casey’s talk to Chuck at the end of vs the Balcony. Pure Casey in that scene.

      My guess is its pure Adam Baldwin! But I know what you mean, I’ve seen a lot of Casey here.

        I’m enjoying seeing him in a role where he is not even a bit funny. Most his roles as ‘Jane’ or ‘Casey’ are quite alike, and are like ‘Mike’, only usually he has a hint of funny in how he portrays the character. So far, Last Ship is not funny, nor is Mike. I’m OK with that, as they are tackling a pretty serious subject.

        So far I’m enjoying the Last Ship but you can tell this is a TNT show and not a major network production. Some of the writing is pretty mediocre and the actors are fourth and fifth tier except for the few leads, but its an enjoyable hour. I just wonder even when they make the vaccine how the world can recover in terms of distribution and the politics of it all. They took on a major story and as in all Armageddon stories the post disaster world recovery is kind of just waved at lol. But I agree that cigar scene was pure “All you need is the girl” John Casey. Adam Baldwin definitely is type cast but he seems to be ok with it and enjoys that world quite a lot.

    Anybody following the #gamergate controversy? Adam Baldwin apparently got involved in this (is evidently credited with coining the hashtag label #gamergate) and at least a few people I follow on Twitter (mostly through Chuck fanfic connections) have decided that Adam’s conservative politics have veered into misogyny, and consequently, they don’t want to write or read any Chuck fanfic that has Casey in it.

    My thought is that one can separate the actor Adam Baldwin from the fictional character John Casey, but I’m not one of those fanfic writers and I can’t tell someone how to feel.

    On the other hand, one of the principal critics of misogyny in video games, Anita Sarkeesian, was apparently forced to cancel a speaking engagement at Utah State University because of threats. Utah’s laws regarding the right to bear arms also entered into the decision to cancel.

    I don’t imagine we’re all on the same page on the politics/social ethics of this issue, but given that a Chuck actor is involved in it, I thought I’d bring it up.

      I have been following it because it’s fascinating on so many levels. I don’t want to get into it because everywhere I’ve seen it written about turns into a rather toxic place in the comments section.

      I can always separate the actor from the character. I can think of many actors whose views on politics, religion, and culture are the opposite of mine, but it doesn’t impact how I feel about characters they play.

      I wasn’t aware that others feel differently to the point of it impacting what fanfic they read. That’s a fascinating aspect of the controversy, too. Even though it’s not how I react, they are free to react how their hearts tell them.

    • Ernie Davis says:

      We’ve tried to keep this site as apolitical as possible for the same reason. Many people infuse politics in to everything to the point it sucks the joy out of it. Which is certainly one aspect of gamergate. For that reason I’d like to stop this discussion before it does turn political.

    • atcDave says:

      Wow, that’s pretty funny. I guess everyone follows their own conscience. There certainly are actors/directors/producers/writers I won’t support for reasons not directly related to their work, but it has to be pretty extreme. Usually, as long as they keep politics and personal issues out of their work it doesn’t bother me too much. Carrying it over in to fan fiction though is pretty comical.
