Paul McGillion‘s movie The Traveler (fka Mr. Nobody) with Val Kilmer is being released directly to video in Region 2! For a preview trailer and other information, visit Val Kilmer the Real Deal website. McGillion plays Deputy Jerry Pine in this story. Synopsis: “On a dark Christmas Eve in a small town, the lone Sheriffs on the night shift encounter a mysterious man who goes by the name of Mr. Nobody. As the night progresses, the Sheriffs discover that this isn’t just a nobody, but a vengeful killer whose past threatens to haunt them all.” As you can tell from our screencap of McGillion, this is a horror/thriller, so beware!

News Flashes and Brief Follow-Ups
- Robert Picardo – Apologies to Picardo fans! We hadn’t heard that he’d be a guest star on Supernatural on November 19 in the episode “Clap Your Hands If You Believe …”! Good news, though: The CW will be posting the episode online soon so you can still catch his appearance!
- David Hewlett – He wasn’t in last week’s episode of Hellcats as we were expecting. The show will be on a brief break and will return December 1, so we’ll be on the look-out for him as Dr. Eagan then.
