If you want to be Green Lantern, you have to go through Kilowog first, as this clip from G4‘s”Attack of the Show” illustrates. Michael Clarke Duncan swung by the show to talk about having an awesome voice and portraying interstellar drill sergeant Kilowog.

At first, I wasn’t so hot on the Green Lantern, but the recent trailers and this clip have me getting kinda amped for it. Yes, it does look a bit like The Mask, but this clip could be far sillier than it is. All in all, it looks like a fun summer spectacle. Starring Duncan, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, and Ryan Reynolds‘ head, Green Lantern opens in theaters June 17th. (Superhero Hype)

As the new co-host of G4‘s”Attack of the Show,” Candace Bailey is a certified pro when it comes to such subjects as comic books, video games, the Internet, and the lesser-known oddities of Japanese pop culture. Well, maybe not yet, but the task of AOTS host is one that requires diligence in the study of such pressing issues. Being quirky as hell can’t hurt either, and it seems that Bailey — a former Nickelodeon personality and Alabama native — has the capacity to quirk out when necessary.

Interview: G4TV’s Alison Haislip http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/interview-g4tvs-alison-haislip/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/interview-g4tvs-alison-haislip/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 My favorite media event of the entire year is the Television Critics Association press tour. For two weeks, every network and cable station brings their talent to have presentations with their stars and producers for the TV critics. At night they host parties where you can just roam around and find celebrities to pester. Comcast Networks held their party outdoors in the Oasis Garden at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. When I found G4 “Attack of the Show’s” Alison Haislip, she was shivering in a clingy black skirt. At least it wasn’t as bad as the lingerie models floating in the fountain. I found Haislip a heat lamp where we could chat about guest hosting for Olivia Munn, old school video games, and technology. Screen Junkies: Were you always grooming yourself to fill in on “Attack of the Show” or was there an opening you seized?

My favorite media event of the entire year is the Television Critics Association press tour. For two weeks, every network and cable station brings their talent to have presentations with their stars and producers for the TV critics. At night they host parties where you can just roam around and find celebrities to pester.

Comcast Networks held their party outdoors in the Oasis Garden at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. When I found G4 “Attack of the Show’s” Alison Haislip, she was shivering in a clingy black skirt. At least it wasn’t as bad as the lingerie models floating in the fountain. I found Haislip a heat lamp where we could chat about guest hosting for Olivia Munn, old school video games, and technology.

Screen Junkies:
Were you always grooming yourself to fill in on “Attack of the Show” or was there an opening you seized?

Alison Haislip: Well, I’ll be honest. When I first started out on the network, I never foresaw there being a time when it wasn’t going to be Kevin and Olivia so I never really thought about it. It was just when Olivia started booking more work outside of G4 and taking more time off and I kept stepping in and stepping in. The first couple of times it was fun and it was awesome, but it was always Kevin and Olivia’s thing and I just sort of stepped in when needed. Once I started doing it more and more, I was like, “I really enjoy doing this. This is a lot of fun. I could host an hour long live television show every day if I had the opportunity.” Now I’m being given the opportunity which is pretty fantastic so I can’t say it’s something I planned for but it is definitely something that I’m very excited about.

SJ: Are you the Jay Leno of G4?

AH: [Laughs] Right, right, right. I don’t know, that’s a good way to put it, although I hope that doesn’t mean Conan O’Brien has it out for me at some point.

SJ: Where did you get your start in gaming? What was the first one that really got you hooked?

AH: Well, my parents had an Atari 2600 since I was born. So as soon as I was old enough to figure out how to play it I was playing it. I remember they had it set up to this black and white television in our basement and I always played on that. Then one Christmas, we went to my grandmother’s house and they brought the Atari and hooked it up to my grandmother’s television in the living room which was color and it blew my mind because I didn’t know Atari could be in color! I always thought Atari was just a black and white gaming system but it wasn’t. It was in color. In “Combat,” the tanks were now pink and green instead of just gray and lighter gray. So I was playing from a very young age and then I got the old school Nintendo system when I was eight. Then I was hooked. I’m convinced it’s the reason my brother and I are best friends. We didn’t kill each other as young children because we played video games together. That’s what helped us got along.

SJ: What was the big NES game for you?

AH: The NES game that has a place in my heart is “Duck Tales” because that’s the first game that I ever beat, that I ever fully completed. I was big fan of like Nintendo Olympics or something like that that had the little running pad.

SJ:
The Power Pad!

AH: The Power Pad, I forget exactly what game it was attached to but it was like track and field and all this stuff. We found out ways to cheat. If you like leaned on a chair, then you could just move your feet really fast and your dude would just take off. Then if you wanted to jump, you jumped off the pad and then stepped back on and that’s how you got a longer jump. That was always a great game to play with the neighborhood kids.

SJ: What are you playing for fun now?

AH: “Super Mario Galaxy 2.” I’m loving it, although I’ve definitely hit the point in the game where the levels are so difficult it takes me 45 minutes to beat a level, which is just an absurd amount of time to spend on one Mario level. You know what I mean? They upped the difficulty of this game so much that I’m like, “I don’t even know if I can finish this game. This game might be too hard for me to beat, and it’s a Mario game.”

SJ: Why can’t they make a game so no matter where you are, you can save your game? The lifestyle now is you might not have 45 minutes.

AH: I mean, you’ve never been able to save in the middle of a Mario game because normally the levels don’t take you that long. The idea is you can normally finish it in 15-20 so you’d think they’d change it.

SJ: What if you just want to play five minutes. You bought the game. They don’t need to make you replay it.

AH: It is true although I will admit, in “Super Mario Galaxy” there are save points within the level, so if you die, you only go back to that save point. You don’t go back to the beginning, but if you don’t finish the level and you turn the game off, then you have to do the whole thing again. That’s gamer rage. That’s what we have to deal with, right?

SJ: What crazy stunts or costumes are you looking forward to on your G4 hosting gig?

AH: Well, I’m hosting “American Ninja Warrior” which I’m very, very excited about. We’ve upped the ante on this one literally. There’s now a $250,000 prize attached to it to any American who can finish the course in Mount Midoriyama. I’m very excited about that. I can’t think of any costumes that are coming up but I’ll be honest, normally I find that out the day of. Normally I show up to work and they’re like, “We’re going to dress you like you’re from the ‘80s” and I’m like all right, why not? Right now it’s mainly “American Ninja Warrior” and then hosting the show while Olivia’s off doing “Perfect Couples.”

SJ: Do you take requests for costumes?

AH: All the time and it’s not up to me is what people have to realize. You have to tell the network you want to see me dressed like that. They make all those decisions. I will admit, I was the one who really pushed for dressing as Catwoman at Comic Con a couple years ago because so many people were behind that idea that I realized that I could probably get some benefit out of it. So I told the people, “Hey, if I get G4 to let me dress as Catwoman at Comic-Con, you guys all have to donate one dollar to a certain charity.” Everyone got behind it, I did it and they donated money and I matched what was donated. We did some good for the world.

SJ: What gadgets do you carry in your purse?

AH: The only thing I have in here is my phone, my Droid. It looks way wonky because I have this janky case on it. I’m pretty sure I’m due for a new phone in November and I think I’m going to go with the Droid X then. Although I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the iPhone’s going to come to Verizon but I feel like no matter how much I dream that, it’s never going to happen. So I’m sticking with the Droids for now. I also have a fantastic shade of lip gloss.

Fellow Junkies,

Comic-Con has come and gone, as has Screen Junkies from San Diego.  It was our first ever trip down to Comic-Con and it will not be our last, but we learned a lot.  Mostly, we learned that you have to surrender to the fact that you can’t cover EVERYTHING at Comic-Con.  Here’s everything we DID cover:

 

AVATAR
Video clips of James Cameron speaking about AVATAR just moments after having unveiled 25-minutes of the film to Hall H @ Comic-Con. 

 

 


G4′s ATTACK OF THE SHOW

Video clips and a rundown of Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Blair Butler and the producers’ AOTS presentation.  Includes a clip of Comic-Con’s first ever "Nerd Rave!"

 

 


LOST: THE FINAL SEASON

Co-creators Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse are joined by a bevy of the hit show’s stars for a presentation of Season 6.  Includes video clips (of course), but does not include major spoilers (of course).

 

DISTRICT 9 SNEAK/SPOILER-FREE REVIEW
Ace Screen Junkie Spencer Vickers sees a sneak peek of the Neill Blomkamp-directed, Peter Jackson-produced sci-fi violence-fest and promptly writes an open letter to the studio execs that killed HALO to remind them of their own stupidity for having ever committed such stupidity.  As if they didn’t know.

 

JENNIFER’S BODY
A rundown of the film’s first 15 minutes, and Q&A with Megan Fox, writer Diablo Cody, director Karyn Kusama and producer Jason Reitman.  As Megan Fox says about J’s B, "You better be wearing your sexy shoes!"

 

 


SOLOMON KANE

A recap of the Hall H panel about the Michael J. Bassett-directed, James Purefoy-starring film adaptation of CONAN-creator Robert E. Howard‘s badass demon slayer.  Well received at Comic-Con, and a potential sleeper hit when the film opens later this year.  Give it up for sword & sorcery flicks!

 


EXTRACT

Video clips and commentary about Mike Judge‘s latest, including a video of Jason Bateman passing out on Mila Kunis (not a bad place to land).

 

 

THE CLEVELAND SHOW
Interviews with cast members and video of "The Family Guy" spinoff’s panel in Hall H, with creator Seth MacFarlane.

And that’s all she wrote.  We’ll see you next year, Comic-Con, and we’ll be loaded for bear when we do. 

So send us out, Oscar-nominated writer/director Frank Darabont!

This afternoon, Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Blair Butler and producers behind G4's megahit ATTACK OF THE SHOW held court in Room 5AB of the San Diego Convention Center for a little over an hour.  The line to get in looked like it went about half the length of the entire San Diego Convention Center, and we're willing to bet over 500 people had to be turned away in the end.  Too bad.  Everyone who did get in received a complimentary kazoo and glowstick (more on these later)Introducing the show was none other than Apple's "Steve Jobs," and we have his entire 4-minute address here.  Fast forward to the end if you just want a glimpse of Ms. Munn stepping out to her adoring fans.

This afternoon, Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Blair Butler and producers behind G4′s megahit ATTACK OF THE SHOW held court in Room 5AB of the San Diego Convention Center for a little over an hour.  The line to get in looked like it went about half the length of the entire San Diego Convention Center, and we’re willing to bet over 500 people had to be turned away in the end.  Too bad.  Everyone who did get in received a complimentary kazoo and glowstick (more on these later)

Introducing the show was none other than Apple’s "Steve Jobs," and we have his entire 4-minute address here.  Fast forward to the end if you just want a glimpse of Ms. Munn stepping out to her adoring fans.


STEVE JOBS Introduces OLIVIA MUNN & KEVIN PEREIRA – Watch more Funny Videos

The AOTS gang presented a few clips, including a classic one of Kevin and Olivia squaring off in a hot sauce eating contest, based on this little gem.  (SPOILER ALERT: It gave Olivia diarrhea) They also showed a great fake trailer spoofing the Liam Neeson actioner TAKEN, but with Kevin playing Inspector Gadget and Olivia playing Penny.  Penny gets kidnapped by Dr. Claw and… well, Gadget go-go-goes on a killing spree.  The audience ate it up like the fat guy dressed like Skeletor at the Mrs. Fields down in the convention center lobby.  

Other highlights included "one of the largest live group Tweets ever to hit the Twittersphere," where the entire audience was encouraged to send their funniest tweets about AOTS and attach an #aotspanel hashtag to them. 


ATTACK OF THE SHOW w/ Olivia Munn Comic COn Panel – Watch more Funny Videos

Our tweet didn’t even make the top three.  That might have been because we didn’t follow directions.  Or it was because it just wasn’t funny.  We’ll go with the latter.

The winning tweet by audience cheers? Schmaniel’s "AP #aotspnanel I think it just cured my cancer. Nevermind… it’s still there."

This led to the most akward moment of the panel, when "Schmaniel" came up to the front to claim his prize, and it was revealed that he actually, in fact, had cancer.  His shirt read something to the effect of, "I had a brain tumor removed.  How are you?" And for a split second, Kevin and Olivia were noticeably stymied as to how to quip back.  It got even weirder when Schmaniel busted out a piece of this tumor for Olivia to take a look at.  Ever the sport, she did. 

Comedian Doug Benson also showed up at the end of the Q&A to essentially announce that he’ll be doing animated shorts for upcoming episodes of ATTACK OF THE SHOW

And finally, per Kevin Pereira’s request – as we were being kicked out of Room 5AB for running over – was possibly the first ever Comic-Con Nerd Rave.  Here’s a clip:
