CBS has canceled Three Rivers

Uh oh! CBS has canceled Three Rivers. Poor Alex! Unfortunately, he has been down this road before with our beloved Moonlight :(

CBS Pulls the Plug on Three Rivers
by Natalie Abrams

Once again, adoring fans must say farewell to
Alex O'Loughlin: His new medical drama, Three Rivers, has been canceled, has confirmed.

Effective immediately, the network will air repeats of
Criminal Minds and NCIS: Los Angeles instead of the organ-donor drama.

Rivers will complete production on all 13 episodes from the show's original order, but no decisions have been made on whether they will air.

The cancelation news would be more of a blow to CBS if it hadn't had such a successful fall with NCIS: LA and
The Good Wife. Rivers has been flatlining in the ratings, drawing an average of 7.5 million viewers, compared to Wife and LA's 13.7 million and 17.5 million respective averages.

What are you going to miss more: Alex O'Loughlin or Three Rivers?

Video ~ Alex O'Loughlin interview from The Bonnie Hunt Show

This video shows Alex O'Loughlin's interview on The Bonnie Hunt Show. Of course, he was there to promote his new tv show, Three Rivers. However, Bonnie mentions Moonlight in his introduction....... "Before Twilight, our next guest got our blood pumping as a sexy Vampire on Moonlight! Now, he's traded in his fangs for some scrubs." :)

Alex O'Loughlin & Jason Dohring on list of Hottest Male Vampires

Both of our Moonlight boys, Alex O'Loughlin & Jason Dohring, are on the list of 20 Hottest Male Vampires. However, you may be surprised by where they placed....... Mick St John is #14 and Josef Kostan/Konstantin ranked higher at #8!

Other sexy, fang bearing men who made the cut include ~ Aidan Turner who plays Mitchell (Being Human), James Marsters as Spike (Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel), Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman (True Blood), Ian Somerhalder who is bad boy Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries), no surprise seeing Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen on the list (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse), from the same films Kellen Lutz as Emmett Cullen, Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac (Interview with a Vampire). Ethan Hawke, as Edward, is chosen even though the movie Daybreakers has yet to be released. I wanna see that too!

To check out the entire list, see where your favorite Vampire placed, who is number one and voice your opinion by following the link below.

The Vampire Craze: An In Depth Analysis Of The Hottest Male Vampires

Brace yourselves.

This may come as a complete shock.

Vampires are sort of, what's the word, in right now. I mean, if you haven't been living in Antarctica this past year, you may have noticed a very obvious trend. Remember way back in the day when every guy wanted to be Neo from The Matrix because he had that cool trench coat and could do sweet flips? Those days are long gone. Today it's all about fangs and an aversion to sunlight. Goth is back. Pale is the new tan.

And really, we shouldn't be all that surprised. Vampires are hot. They don't age. They look good in black. Some of them have inner-turmoil issues. Granted, they drink blood and that's kind of gross, but so are hot dogs and most of us love those. Who are we to judge?

Let's embrace this trend. Instead of rolling our eyes at the plethora of Twilight memorabilia lining the walls of every store, let's take a moment and analyze why there is so much Twilight memorabilia lining the walls of every store. And I'm not talking about dissecting the literary merits of the books (because what would I write about after the first paragraph?). Instead, I want to focus purely on sex appeal (you know, what's important). Costume and make-up designers work hard to create these gorgeous male bloodsuckers, and it's time to give them credit where credit is due. Here's a countdown of the greatest, most stunning, most please-bite-me-now creatures of the night ever. I'll tell you what works, what doesn't work, and why I want - no, need - to be alone in a dark alley with them.

14. Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St. John in Moonlight

You know, once in awhile it's nice to encounter a vampire who does something truly productive with his super strength, years of knowledge, and stunning good looks. Mick St. John is one such vampire. Instead of sitting around being all, "Oh man, it sucks that I love blood and have to stay young and beautiful forever," he made the choice to go out and seek redemption through helping the helpless, err, I know what you're thinking. This is sounding a lot like another vampire we all know and love who is a P.I. and helps the helpless for redemptive purposes. That other vampire aside, Mick's desire to do what's right, coupled with his ability to brood like nobody's business, makes him a very attractive undead American to watch.

8. Jason Dohring as Josef Kostan in Moonlight

He might not have been the title character in Moonlight , but Jason Dohring playing good vampire Josef Kostan made quite the impression on me. Perhaps (read: certainly) this stems from my longtime love of the tragically canceled television show Veronica Mars and, consequently, the character of Logan Echolls (played by Jason Dohring). However, despite this admittedly blinding obsession, I think my choice stands strong. In Moonlight , Dohring plays a 400-year old vampire with remarkable ease and depth. Strutting around in expensive suits, living in luxurious mansions, and taking his pick of any girl he wants, Josef is probably the envy of most guys. And who can blame them? In the show, he comes off as suave, smart, and wonderfully sexy, so much so that he has a gaggle of girls just lining up to give him their blood. And guys, I think we can all agree that there's something to be said about a vampire who gets his blood handed to him not through hypnotic vampire tricks or hunting, but through money and good looks.

Thanks to Sara for making sure we all knew about this :)

Another Alex Update!

Alex O'Loughlin has sent another new message to his fans. He really tries to keep us up to date on his busy life. Not only is he working on several projects, he mentions being asked to throw out the first pitch @ the Dodgers vs Pirates game (on Tuesday, September 15th, 2009). I hope some Moonlight fans in the area get to see him. Sounds like Alex is gaining a bit of the popularity he deserves.

Me Again

Dear All,

As I write this I am conscious of the fact that I feel like I say the same things in every blog I send out to you all... "Thank you-Thank you-Thank you". I haven't stopped for so long and it kind of seems like my birthday came and went really quickly this year. But it wasn't without THE most ridiculous influx of gifts, cards, and the usual, wonderful support I am slowly becoming accustomed to from all of you. My ever loyal and loving fans.

So I guess I'll just say it again..


Three Rivers has me very busy everyday and with the upcoming release of Whiteout I have found myself working every weekend too, busy with promotions & publicity in an attempt to launch the show and support the movie. I am very excited about both.

But the thing I am most excited about is the opportunity Three Rivers has presented for me to get back to some community service. I am now a spokesperson, and soon to start my training to become an ambassador for Donate Life America. It is such an important cause and one that so many of us could do with a little more information on.

I am now officially an organ, eye and tissue donor and have my little DLA card to keep in my wallet. (god forbid anything ever happen that would put it into action!) That being said, and again...touch wood...I now have the chance to give the gift of life, which I believe is the greatest gift of all.

On another note, and FYI, I will be doing the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson again on Labor Day (to air that night I think) and it looks like I'll pitch the first ball of the Dodgers-Pirates game on September 15th so wish me luck. I had some pitching practice today at the stadium and apparently I can throw a ball. Haha. Not at 100 MPH though. ;)

Guys, thanks for a really terrific birthday. You make me feel like I'm never alone.

Be well. Be safe.

All my love,
Alex. x

Alex O'Loughlin on another list of hottest Vampires

Entertainment Weekly has created a list of their 14 hottest Vampires. Our sexy vamp, Mick St John, is included ~ of course! No one could take EW's picks seriously if they left off Alex O'Loughlin.

A few of the other Vampyres from the list ~ Spike from Angel & Buffy the Vampire Slayer (James Marsters), not surprising... Angel of Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel, Louis de Pointe du Lac in Interview with the Vampire (Brad Pitt), Mitchell on Being Human (Aidan Turner), another preordained choice.... Edward Cullen from the Twilight franchise (Robert Pattinson, True Blood's Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) & Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), etc. The new CW tv series, The Vampire Diaries, has not even hit the air... but... Ian Somerhalder (who plays Damon Salvatore on that show) made the cut.

Update message from Alex O'Loughlin

Hey all....... Alex O'Loughlin has sent a sweet new message to update all his fans :)

Its been a while

Hi everybody.

Well it certainly has been a minute since I last wrote you all, but I am glad to say that it's because I literally have not stopped working since we last spoke. I finished The Backup Plan a few days ago and flew straight back to LA to start production on Three Rivers, which is where I am now.

The film experence was wonderful! We were very lucky to have the team of producers & the director that we had and I would work with them all again tomorrow! It was nothing but positive.

Our director and leader, Alan Poul was as good as you can get. Very intelligent, funny, sensative to everyone's needs and a true visionary. I think we might just have a decent little film on our hands! ;)

Many of you have sent me messages full of questions about Jennifer and how I found working with her, and I appreciate your enthusiasm.

Jennifer is a very private person and I respect that, so what I will tell you is that she is all the good things you could possibly imagine her to be. Funny, smart, generous, always prepared, very professional, always punctual... and of course, beautiful.

Thank you all so much for the constant support. It can be difficult to reach you all personally and individually, but none of your love and hard work ever goes unnoticed or unappreciated. It is something in my life that helps me find the energy I don't always think I have, to get through another long work day and stay inspired. Without you all it would be kind of pointless so, again, thank you.

All my love
Alex O'Loughlin x

Does CBS realize canceling Moonlight was a mistake?

Today, Parade Magazine featured an inquiry sent in by a Moonlight fan asking if CBS knows what a blunder they made in canceling our show. We all knew the reasoning behind the network signing Alex O'Loughlin to a talent holding deal so quickly.

Personality Parade Cancelled TV Series

Question ~ Does CBS realize that canceling its vampire series Moonlight with Alex O’Loughlin was a mistake?— Sandy Bleiss, Bartlett, Tenn.

Answer ~ Yes. Our sources tell us that the outcry was so great that CBS took steps to bring O’Loughlin back into the fold. CBS Films cast him opposite Jennifer Lopez in The Back-Up Plan, and this fall he’ll star as a doctor in a new medical series, Three Rivers. Is there a cancelled TV series you’d like to see revived?

Teaser movie poster for The Back-Up Plan & a new interview

Reporter Bob Thompson recently interviewed Jennifer Lopez on the set of The Back-Up Plan. While he was there, he spoke to Alex O'Loughlin too. We heard that Jennifer was involved in picking her co-star. In this interview, she confirms that she had cast approval and... smart girl... she knew Alex was the guy for the job!

I will print part of the chat here. You can read the entire interview by following the link below.

Also, as I'm sure you already noticed, above you will see the newly released teaser poster for the movie :)

Jennifer Lopez returns with a back-up plan
by Bob Thompson @ Canwest News Service

LOS ANGELES — Jennifer Lopez seems at home as she wanders the hallowed halls of Radford Studios, originally built in this San Fernando Valley enclave as the cinema home for silent film greats Charlie Chaplin and The Keystone Cops.

More recently, the sound stage complex housed the long running TV sitcoms Seinfeld and That '70s Show, among many others. And now it's home to JLo who is determined to revive her film career with the romantic comedy The Back-Up Plan, which she's currently filming here.

In the Alan Poul-directed movie set to open early next year, Lopez plays Zoe, a freethinking Manhattan woman who decides to go it alone as a single parent. She's conceiving twins through artificial insemination when she meets whom she believes might be Mister Right (Alex O'Loughlin), even if he has some reservations.

That story's not much of a leap for Lopez. She's the devoted wife of Marc Anthony, her Mister Right, and the caring mother to fraternal twins Max and Emme, born to her on Feb. 22, 2008.

Lopez agrees it was easy to identify with the screenplay. Still, the 39-year-old had misgivings about returning to the grind after tending to her real-life babies, which accompany her to most of The Back-Up Plan locations around the city.

"I don't think it is any big secret that I love romantic comedies," says Lopez who is joined for the chat by her co-star O'Loughlin. "I chose this specific movie because I thought it was funny and romantic and it had a little bit of a naughty edge to it."

Not surprisingly, she also had cast approval and lots to say in selecting co-star O'Loughlin, the Australian actor best known for his detective role in The Shield and private investigator and vampire in the now cancelled Moonlight series.

Her assessment? She says she decided he had lots of charm, but more critically O'Loughlin had the strength of character to stand up to the strong-willed Lopez on screen.

As it was, she knew she would be a force in the part. "Having been pregnant and having my own kids I responded right away to my character," she admits. "But then I hadn't been on a set for 26 months."

So she had to take it slow and easy those for the first few weeks on The Back-Up Plan. "It was nerve-racking," confesses Lopez smiling. "I thought maybe I would forget how to do it right."

"But she didn't," assures O'Loughlin, who says he's been impressed with her commitment to detail in general and her comedic timing specifically.

Shrugging off the compliment, Lopez says she's accustomed to being under-estimated whether it's on a sound stage or in a recording studio.

Over-exposed by public displays of exaggeration? She became accustomed to that as well.

For nearly a decade, the singer and actress unintentionally provided gossipy fodder for sensationalists around the world.

Almost everybody knows the turmoil she's experienced, whether the incidents were overblown or not. There were her failed marriages, the Sean Combs nightlife clubbing phase, and the wild and wacky 'Bennifer' engagement to Ben Affleck that became infamously disengaged.

So that's her baggage real or imagined. And O'Loughlin's asked the obvious because of it.

What's it like acting opposite somebody so famous?

As he tries to explain himself, Lopez's goading him to come clean with what he really thinks.

"Believe it or not I didn't have any pre-conceived ideas," he says. "She's smoking hot and super famous."

"And for someone as iconic as you are," adds O'Loughlin, pausing as he looks at Lopez who interrupts him with "I want to hear the second part of that sentence."

"OK, I think of you as a grounded person who's got all of her stuff down at work," he says, looking relieved he's finished without more good-natured taunting by Lopez.

Sci Fi Wire ~ Another article mentions a possible Moonlight Movie

Sci Fi Wire is the news service of the Sci-Fi Channel... now called Syfy, by the way. An interesting article is on their website. Moonlight fans, get ready to have your hearts race!

As you know, our show won the Saturn Award for Best Television Series Release on DVD. Co-executive producer, Harry Werksman, accepted the trophy. He also answered an entertainment reporter's questions regarding a Moonlight movie. *gulp* We've all been hoping and dreaming of this possibility. According to Harry, "I think what we were going to try and do is to have the movie encapsulate the entire second season..." He goes on to say that, not only did he speak to Alex O'Loughlin about a film version of Moonlight, but Alex asked him "When are we going to do the movie?" Please, oooo please, oooo please :)

The article states that Moonlight repeats are showing on SciFi each Friday evening. However, our show is not currently on the channel's Friday night schedule. Yellow highlighted text is my emphasis.

Could a movie version of the vampire TV show Moonlight rise from the dead?
By Fred Topel

The recent vampire craze born of Twilight and True Blood came a bit too late to save CBS' Moonlight: The vampire detective series was canceled after one season. But it won a Saturn Award for best series on DVD last week, and executive producer Harry Werksman offered fans some hope that a Moonlight movie could offer some closure.

"Well, we were setting up in the end of our first season that there was a coming war," Werksman said in an exclusive interview at the awards ceremony in Burbank, Calif. "There was the family from which Coraline came, and it was a royal bloodline of vampires that Mick had been brought into, very much unwanted on his part. I think what we were going to try and do is to have the movie encapsulate the entire second season of the coming war."

The series chronicled the casework of detective Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin), who could solve crimes committed by vampires. He was dealing with his own issues with an ex, Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon), who turned him without his consent, and a 400-year-old vamp (Jason Dohring), who butted in with underworld politics.

Of course, a movie would require the entire cast to return, and after the show's cancellation, they all booked new gigs. "You know, unfortunately, I think that everyone has kind of moved on," Werksman said.

One medium that does not need actors, however, is comic books. "No, they don't need actors," Werksman said. "We could always do comic books, graphic novels, that's true."

A movie is not out of the question, though, because lead actor O'Loughlin has told Werksman he's still interested. "I know I talked to Alex just a couple weeks ago, after Three Rivers got picked up, and I was congratulating him," he said. "He's like, 'When are we going to do the movie?' I said, 'I don't know, man. Any time you're ready.'"

Moonlight: The Complete Series is available on DVD; reruns currently air on SCI FI Channel Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Video ~ Alex O'Loughlin in TV Guide's Mega Minute feature

Check out this video. In his Mega Minute feature for TV Guide, Matt Mitovich talks about Alex O'Loughlin and his tv show, Three Rivers. He asked CBS' Kelly Kahl (Senior Executive Vice President of Programming) what he thought would be the secret to the success of the new series. Kelly's reply.... "It's the cute guy from the Vampire show." Three Rivers has been greenlit for the normal freshman 13 episodes. Of course, there is the option for 9 more if the network picks up the program for a full season.

The Alex stuff begins around the :47 mark.

This video shows Alex O'Loughlin and his co-star Jennifer Lopez (along with her husband, Marc Anthony) leaving the set of their new film, The Back Up Plan. Just a brief glimpse of our guy, but enough to see that he looks very hot :)

Will Three Rivers be on the CBS Fall television schedule?

A week from today! CBS Network will hold its upfront presentation on Wednesday, May 20th, 2009. That is when we should find out if Alex O'Loughlin's new television series ~ Three Rivers ~ will be picked up for the Fall schedule. *fingers crossed*

Nikki Finke @ Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting "I also hear that MIAMI TRAUMA and THREE RIVERS are still in skintight competition at CBS for the medical show Les Moonves wants." And.......

MIAMI TRAUMA (Warner Bros/CBS-Paramount) is Jerry Bruckheimer's medical show, and I'm told Les wants a medical show. But this may not be the one because sources say it was a "soft screening" and is in competition with Three Rivers.

THREE RIVERS (CBS-Paramount/Deuce Three) is looking likely to be the medical drama Les wants (and wants more than rival Miami Trauma). CBS liked what they saw. And the network loves star Alex O'Loughlin. Not only might he bring his small but rabid Moonlight fanbase, but he recently starred in a Criminal Minds sweeps episode. And I hear CBS Films just put him in the feature film Plan B opposite Jennifer Lopez. Insiders are betting this show with a 24 splitscreen feel will go.

Alex O'Loughlin talks with Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch Blog has a fun interview with Alex O'Loughlin. I especially giggled at the discussion of possible sensual moments in his new show, Three Rivers.... "I told them I'm happy to do whatever sex scenes they want. Either with actors or by myself." Alex has such a wonderful sense of humor.

Alex O'Loughlin: Catching up with the 'Moonlight' star on his 'Criminal Minds' guest spot and more!
EW ~ PopWatch Blog ~ by Mandi Bierly

We know. You're not used to seeing Moonlight's Alex O'Loughlin looking like a serial killer with OCD. (You prefer to remember him the way we do: either holding a "Hi Slezak!" sign at 2008's New York Comic Con or shirtless.) But it's only for a role. O'Loughlin guest stars on tonight's episode of Criminal Minds (CBS, 9 p.m. ET) as what fans of the series know as the Unsub, or unidentified subject. He plays a man who sends a video of one of his murders to the BAU team, hoping that they'll be able to end the bloody spree that he himself cannot stop. We phoned O'Loughlin for a quick chat about the part, his CBS drama pilot Three Rivers, and the romantic comedy he begins shooting next month with Jennifer Lopez, The Back-Up Plan.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY : We can't actually go further into your character on Criminal Minds without giving the twist away, but tell us how the part came to you.

ALEX O'LOUGHLIN : The genius writer and friend of mine Simon Mirren [one of the show's co-executive producers] offered it to me. I'm eating an apple while we talk. Is that okay?

EW : That is fine, yes.

Alex O'Loughlin : Thank you. I read it and was like, "Absolutely." It's not often that I get to play character roles. You kinda leave drama school and you head off into a direction and that's the direction you take. You're either on the character actor route or the leading man route. It was a delight for me to play a role like this.

EW : You are the leading man in the CBS pilot Three Rivers. [We'll know May 20, when CBS announces its fall schedule, if it gets picked up for next season.]

Alex O'Loughlin : I play a cardiothoracic surgeon called Andy Yablonski, who's based on a real-life surgeon called "Gonzo" Gonzales-Stawinski who's become a wonderful friend of mine. He's a cardiothoracic surgeon up at the Cleveland Heart Clinic, which I spent a bunch of time at in my preparation for the role. It's a fantastic script that's really grownup and smart and important. It tells the story of organ transplants from three perspectives: The organ, the recipient, and -- the organ? [Laughs] It tells it from the organ's perspective. From the recipient, the donor, and the surgical team.

EW : I read that Andy is separated from his wife and lives in a motel near the hospital. Is that right?

Alex O'Loughlin : Yeah, connected next to the hospital, actually. So he can live his job even more than he usually does.

EW : The word motel always sounds kinda seedy to me, so I thought maybe we'd get to see him taking advantage of that proximity. But if he's a workaholic.... Are we not gonna see sex scenes is basically what I'm asking you.

Alex O'Loughlin : Ohmygod. No, I told them I'm happy to do whatever sex scenes they want. Either with actors or by myself. So they're getting back to me on that. That may or may not be a reason why they pick up the show. "He's obsessed with sex. No, we're not gonna pick the show up. Moonlight f---ed with him. He's kinda all weird now."

EW : You have a holding deal with CBS, so I'm assuming you had a few pilots to choose from. Why this one?

Alex O'Loughlin : It's a well-written piece that I foresee a longevity with that I didn't with the other pilots that I read. I see three years ahead, you know what I mean? I see the fifth season. I see where the characters are going to go, the potential. I loved the character. I've sat in on five open-heart surgeries now. I realized how important a story like this was before I did that stuff, but the deeper I've gone into it, the more mesmerized I am.

EW : And what's Andy's personality like?

Alex O'Loughlin : He's a bit cheeky, too. He's like a lovable scallywag.

EW : You're about to start filming the movie The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez. Tell us about that one.

Alex O'Loughlin : It's a movie about a girl who is heading toward her 40th birthday, she hasn't met The One, she really wants a baby, and so she goes and gets artificially inseminated. Right after she does this, she bumps into this guy called Stan. I play Stan. She falls in love with him. He falls in love with her. She tells him about the pregnancy after they've fallen in love and he flips out. Then it's about him coming to terms with the fact that if he loves her, he loves all of her, and working out how he's gonna deal with it. It's very funny. It's very moving. It's a terrific little film.

EW : You've met Jennifer already, obviously. How's the chemistry?

Alex O'Loughlin : The chemistry is fine. I think we're gonna be pals. You know when you sit in a room with someone and you kinda can't talk to them, or you sit in a room and you're easy with someone -- we're easy together. So I think it's gonna work. I think we're gonna be really good onscreen together. Her husband is wonderful. I met Marc and the kids, and they're great. They're a really lovely unit.

EW : You also costar in the thriller Whiteout coming out this fall. [Kate Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshal in Antarctica in the graphic novel adaptation.]

Alex O'Loughlin : I can't remember how many years ago I shot that. I can't remember what I did in it. [Laughs] No, that's not true. I'm looking forward to seeing that. They've been cutting it for so long. That's Kate's film though. Essentially, I play the villain in that as well. A rogue-ish, rugged, Australian pilot who's a bit of a smartass. It's like Wow, what a stretch.

Alex O'Loughlin apologizes for missing BBM Convention

Alex O'Loughlin has written another sweet message for us fans. Always the gentleman, he takes the opportunity to apologize to fans who had hoped to see him at the Breakout Before Moonlight/Star Fury convention (Heathrow, London England). However, don't forget that our marvelous Jason Dohring ~ aka Josef ~ is still scheduled to be there at the moment.

May '09

Hey everybody!

Thought I would drop you all a quick line and let you know that things are going really well.

I finished Three Rivers and landed the role in Jennifer Lopez' new film The Back Up Plan, which I have been madly working on preparing since I got back from Pittsburgh.

It is very exciting news about this film, and I think it will be a really good thing for me but it does mean I am going to have to miss out on other things. One of these being the Star Fury event in London which I was looking forward to very much.

I really wanted to reach out to anyone who was going to come and say hello to me there.

I know that when you buy your tickets they tell you we (the actors) may not be there if we get a job, but I'm sorry all the same. I wanted to be there too but this film I could not pass up. I hope you guys understand.

Also, thank you so much to all the people who tuned into my Criminal Minds episode the other night. It was a fun show to be a part of.

All my love to you all.
Alex O'Loughlin

Alex O'Loughlin on EW's list of sexy Aussies

Guess who is on Entertainment Weekly's list of 26 Superhot Australian Exports... that's right... Alex O'Loughlin! Of course, they would have never lived it down if he had not been included. Funny, my friends & I have made our own list of sexiest Aussies many, many times ;)

Others who made the cut ~ Simon Baker, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Kwanten, Yvonne Strahovski, Cate Blanchett, Emilie De Ravin, Eric Bana, Julian McMahon, Guy Pearce and Keith Urban.

26 Superhot Australian Exports


With his longish hair, chiseled facial features, and strategically unbuttoned shirt, the Moonlight star looked like he could have graced the cover of a romance novel — not just the promos for his now-canceled show. Up next is Whiteout, an Antarctica-set thriller with Kate Beckinsale. Here's hoping they find lots of excuses for O'Loughlin's parka to come off.,,20274181_4,00.html

Alex mentions possible Moonlight movie during interview

The Boston Herald interview with Alex O'Loughlin includes a very tasty little tidbit of news. Alex mentions a phone call he received from Joel Silver about a possible Moonlight movie! Unfortunately, he says nothing more has come of it since then. My heart skipped just knowing there was actually real talk about a film tho.

Boston Herald ~ The Edge
Heart and ‘Minds’: ‘Moonlight’ star O’Loughlin returns to prime time as serial killer
By Mark A. Perigard

Alex O’Loughlin staked a claim to fame as the heroic vampire Mick St. John in the supernatural drama “Moonlight,” a casualty of last year’s writers strike.

Now he returns to prime time guesting on CBS’ “Criminal Minds” (tonight at 9 on WBZ, Ch. 4) as a spooky serial killer who hopes police can halt his rampage.

In “The Big Wheel,” an episode written for the actor, O’Loughlin plays Vincent, a man suffering from severe OCD. Something is triggering murderous urges within him, and he leaves clues for authorities to stop him. It’s an unusual hour with a mystery that ends with unexpected poignancy.

“I’m playing a villain, kind of,” O’Loughlin told the Herald last week in a telephone interview. “He’s a very flawed human being, but there is redemption as far as I’m concerned.

“As I’m moving into this leading-man phase of my career, you don’t even get to read roles like this very much and you don’t get offered guest-star parts like this. I’m an actor - I didn’t go to leading-man school, I went to acting school,” he said, then laughed.

The Australian has been in demand since “Moonlight” was canned last year, a decision CBS all but officially concedes was a mistake.

He is currently filming a pilot for another CBS series, “Three Rivers, in which he plays a cardiothoracic surgeon. He appears on the big screen in September in the sci-fi thriller “Whiteout,” a film he completed before “Moonlight.” He soon starts filming the romantic comedy “The Back-Up Plan” opposite Jennifer Lopez.

But he’s beloved to fans for his role as the undead detective with the heart of a romantic. And O’Loughlin returns the love.

A year away from the series, he said, “I look back at it with a broken heart for the most part. I put every part of me into that show. I was fighting for it from every angle and I was there from the very beginning.”

Given the recent success of the big-screen “Twilight” and HBO’s “True Blood,” is there any chance “Moonlight” could rise for a big-screen reunion?

“(Executive producer) Joel Silver called me right before Christmas. ‘Alex, we’re making the movie. You in?’ ‘Well, sure.’ He hung up, and I haven’t heard from him since. I don’t know what the answer to that is. I don’t know.”

As he considered all the new projects on his plate, he said, “It feels to me that ‘Moonlight’s’ disappearing out of my grasp. It’s sad, but I’m so glad to have been a part of it.”

Reminded that Sci Fi now airs “Moonlight” reruns in the same Friday time slot in which it originally aired, he said, “I still haven’t been paid for it - I think I’m still owed a residual for that.”

He laughed again.
