I guarantee, those people had a lot more fun than I did, because I know how great both Eddie & Saul are to talk to, especially when they are chatting together. So jump with me to see what they had to say. Continue reading

In preparation for tonight’s season premiere of Warehouse 13 (which is amazing!), I spoke with star Eddie McClintock (Pete Lattimer) not long ago over the phone about the tone of last season’s finale & the season premiere as well as how that will affect the rest of the season.
If you remember at the end of last season, the bad guy, Sykes, planted a bomb in the warehouse. Trying to protect the others, H.G. sacrificed herself. While Artie, Claudia, and Pete were fine, H.G. died in the explosion, and when the warehouse was destroyed, so was Mrs. Frederic.
So how does the show come back from that…when so many major players are gone or forever changed because of it? The guys talked about that plus more, so jump with me to check out my question-and-answer with Eddie. Continue reading
To get readers ready for the Syfy lineup of Christmas specials, Colin Ferguson (Eureka), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13), and Emily Rose (Haven) recently spoke to the press. It was kind of a chaotic call, but it was incredibly fun, as well—like it always is with these guys.
On Eureka, Carter and Allison try and plan the perfect Christmas for their kids but are surprised when they find themselves—and the rest of the town—animated. For Warehouse 13, it’s not a wonderful life for the Warehouse team when Pete discovers a world in which he’d never been born. Finally, on Haven, Audrey is surprised to see Christmas decorations suddenly popping up all over town—even though it’s July!

I recently got the chance to speak with Eddie McClintock again about this week’s 2-hour season finale of Warehouse 13, as well as a good variety of other things. I just have to say that he is one of my favorite people in the world. He’s such a funny guy, but he’s so very nice to everyone who calls in to these conference calls. They are always fun, because there is absolutely no guarantee that he or the questioners will stay on track—in fact, it’s almost a guarantee that no one will! That’s part of what makes it so much fun to talk to him.
Now, read on to find out what he had to say!
On the finale: Jinks, a cliffhanger, etc
Eddie McClintock: [Jinks is] not gone. As it stands right now it looks as though the Warehouse people have shut down all his credit cards and everything, they basically are trying to erase him. And so it looks as though he may be joining Walter Sykes and the gang.
You know, I can say, “However it plays out, I mean I just was doing an ADR session yesterday and I was talking to the guy – the mixers and I was like, “So how were the last two episodes,” and they were just like, “They’re the best episodes of the series.”
They’ve really raised the stakes this year here for the last two episodes. And so I’m looking forward to – I haven’t seen any of it so I can’t wait to see it.

On how the characters responded to Aaron’s character coming in
Saul: Go ahead.
Allison: Claudia was expecting a bit of a promotion I think starting out really just kind of like, Myka is gone, let’s get her back but in the interim. I’m here, Pete needs a partner, let’s go. And that’s not what Artie’s got in mind and so she feels a little slighted when this new guy comes aboard. Not exactly friendly to him initially, but sort of getting to know him more and Steve imparting his wisdom into a frustrated 20-year-old really brings Claudia around and the relationship goes from, at first prickly, to one of real familial love and that becomes extremely important to Claudia over the course of the season.
Eddie: Yes, in regards to Pete, I think he’s still stinging from the way that Myka decided to leave the Warehouse. He feels like she basically ditched him and so he doesn’t want have anything to do with the new guy. And I actually think he’s pushing for Claudia to come out with him because he knows Claudia. He cares about Claudia and Claudia doesn’t remind him of the fact that Myka has gone and kind of left him hanging as if were.
Saul: Well, it’s tricky because the most important thing, you get the feeling from the pilot episode that Mrs. Frederic and I had some discussion about bringing Myka and Pete in and from what happened when Claudia arrives at the Warehouse, there was a discussion about even terminating Claudia on some levels. It was terrifying if I do say what happened, but there was procedure for terminating someone forever in a way, terminating them. And bringing her in to the Warehouse was on my head.
There was a responsibility. I have to see how it’s going to work out. Artie’s constantly observing to see how the relationships are playing out and to see whether there’s any bonding happening or whether there’s friction. And if any of that is useful in terms of the job. Also, it’s like bringing a new kid into the family that we’ve adopted. So Artie’s responsibility as a boss is one thing but then he gets emotionally attached and that happens and it could play havoc with the way things operate. It could work well for the Warehouse. But it could also create danger. In our case, both things happen. It works well and it also creates danger.
So he is like – he does fit in as an actor, really well. As a character, he does and he doesn’t. There are things that – aspects for his personality, there are (off footing) and because we do miss – the agents certainly miss Myka and her presence and how the chemistry works and their aspects to his character certainly I think he’s a little bit more straight-laced in some areas. He’s ethically a very by-the-book – has really – his hierarchy of values is really strong and it plays a part in the storyline.
[That was my question!]
