Jerry Doyle Passes Away at 60 Years Old
Friday, July 29, 2016 3:49 AM - By: Jan
 
It was announced yesterday, July 28 that Jerry Doyle who played Security Chief Michael Garibaldi was found unresponsive in his Las Vegas home on July 27. No cause of death is known as yet.

In a statement remembering him, B5 Executive Producer said in part:
He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence...and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of Babylon 5. It is another loss in a string of losses that I cannot understand. Of the main cast, we have lost Richard Biggs, Michael O'Hare, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and now Jerry Doyle, and I'm goddamned tired of it.

So dear sweet universe, if you are paying attention in the vastness of interstellar space, take a moment from plotting the trajectory of comets and designing new DNA in farflung cosmos, and spare a thought for those who you have plucked so untimely from our ranks...and knock it off for a while.

Because this isn't fair.

And Jerry Doyle would be the first person to tell you that. Right before he put a fist in your face. Which is what I imagine he's doing right now, on the other side of the veil.

JMS Announces that He's Leaving Comic-Writing
Sunday, July 24, 2016 1:05 PM - By: Jan
 
JMS announced at his panel at San Diego Comic-Con Friday July 22, that he's decided that going forward he's out of the comics business (barring a few things already in process) in order to concentrate on writing novels and plays in addition to TV and Film.

Other announcements:
- JMS had cataracts and Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy for several years but after successful surgery, now has better vision than ever
- There's an upcoming project involving three names: Bradbury, Gaiman and JMS.
- Midnight Nation will be becoming a TV series.
- Rising Stars has been optioned for a feature film.
- Re: The B5 movie, JMS is working on building his 'street cred' in order to be able to approach investors for over a hundred million dollars. He thinks after another TV show or two and a couple more feature films, he should have achieved that credibility for Studio JMS.
