I worship at the television altar
Gale Harold at PaleyFest!
Thanks to gale-harold.it, we have some wonderful pics of Gale Harold at last night's PaleyFest Fall TV Preview Party for the CW. Special thanks to g_m_h_3 for the heads up! Gale was at the event along with executive producer Kevin Murphy to represent Hellcats. I'm thinking that has to mean his character will be in a significant number of episodes, right?

See more pics HERE.

The Paley Center should have some pics up later today. When they post them, I'll add them here. If anyone finds HQ versions of these or any other pics, let me know!

The Futon Critic has been posting video interviews from PaleyFest the morning after each event. I'll keep an eye out for those, too. I greatly appreciate The Futon Critic's coverage of PaleyFest, but I thought one of their tweets last night was kind of annoying.

I LOVE that Gale takes his role so seriously, and puts so much thought and care into his performance. And I'm sure the other cast members are passionate about their characters as well. It seems that Hellcats faces some of the same prejudices as a show that the squad has to deal with in the episodes.

ETA: The Futon Critic interviews! The interviewer is Jim Halterman. Kevin Murphy says there will be a soundtrack!

Galeee!! ♥♥♥
So looking forward to having him on my screen again! :D
That third picture is too adorable!

Don't you just love him? I can't wait for next Wednesday!

I'm dying to know what he said.

Hey, hon! Just wanted to let you know I have a Hellcats Master Post at my LJ, http://kinwad.livejournal.com/157409.html. It's admittedly and unashamedly Gale-centric, but if there's anything there you'd like to snag, feel free!

Thanks for the link! What a great resource you've created there. I bookmarked it for future reference. :) I did snag a few pics I hadn't seen before, thank you so much!

*g* You're very welcome! Just take whatever you need!

Yeah that tweet irked me too. He's an actor, he has to find character motivation and Gale takes that seriously. so even though to this guy or others it's too thinky, it's how actors find the realism they need to portray a character.

I'm always blown away by how much actors care about the roles they play. They pour their hearts and souls into these shows, and it just seems so unnecessarily disrespectful to make fun.

Yeah, I can do without the "too cool for this" snark as well. But lots of great photos (although what possessed TVGuide to use a 2-year-old photo on their article? It was a good article, though.)

And I loved both videos. Kevin Murphy's got me all excited about the music, especially in ep. 5. (I'm a big fan of the late lamented Alex Chilton and his bands The Box Tops and Big Star, also of Sting.) I wish I'd been able to see Gale do "Orpheus Descending" earlier this year. Everyone really liked his singing voice. I hope he gets to sing on "Hellcats."

I love how music is such a big part of Hellcats. It's so funny how everyone who has been cast in the show seems to coincidentally have musical talent. Plus Kevin Murphy wrote the musical version of Reefer Madness, and Allan Arkush directed Rock 'n' Roll High School. They HAVE to do a musical episode! :)

It's very cool that Gale was chosen to represent Hellcats at this event. It bodes well for his role on the show, and it reminds everyone that Marti's story is about more than just cheerleading.

Could. Not. Love. This. Post. Any. More. If. I. Tried.

I seem to have spent all day yesterday and today looking at Gale! Oh, what a difficult life I lead.

"I'm thinking that has to mean his character will be in a significant number of episodes, right?"
RIGHT! From the comments in the two videos, and from last night, about what to expect and look forward to, it really seems as though Julian is going to play much more than just an occasional part in the proceedings. And I am not unhappy about that at all ;)

Thanks so much for pulling it all together for repeated enjoyment! :) And thanks for the mention, too! *g*

OMG! Thank you sooo much for the link to dawnybee's write up! WOW! Amazing! :)

She's a wonderful storyteller. I'm so glad she was there!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 17th, 2010 12:45 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm so glad you like it! :) Love that the show is getting Gale out there right before his episode airs, so his fans will realize he's back!

It does sound like Marti's legal education will be an important part of the show. How many shows have we seen with students who never crack a book or see the inside of a classroom?

I have to admit I was disappointed Gale wasn't in the promo, though. *is still greedy*

Yay! You got your Gale icon! :D
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 17th, 2010 12:50 am (UTC) (Link)
I did! I made the one for this post myself, out of desperation, but now I'm finding more.

Lovin all the Gale pictures and the interview. Him representing Hellcats is definitely a good sign that he will have a prominent role. I can't wait for Wednesday's episode and for them to delve into Marti's law studies!

Wow, what an unnecessary comment on Twitter. The fact that Gale takes his role seriously shows the kind of person he is. I can't wait to see him in this new role.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 20th, 2010 04:42 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm really excited for this week's episode. Between Gale's first appearance and the big dance number, I think it's going to be amazing!

I think that comment makes it clear that the person has put Hellcats in a little box labeled "cheerleader fluff," and hasn't even given the show the chance to say what it's really all about. Too bad for them. I think Hellcats has a lot to offer, and it's about so much more than just cheerleading. Although I love the cheerleading parts, too! :)

I hate to admit this but I wasn't familiar with Gale Harold prior to you posting about his upcoming role in Hellcats. After reading your & dawnybee's post and watching the interview with him, I had to watch QAF. Managed to fit in a few episodes & now, I am excited to see him on Hellcats too! Thank you :D Now to find the time to watch more QAF.
