Jack Scalia: That pic is named!

On July 14, the BRBTV News Blog reported that Jack Scalia, our own Nicholas Pearce / Joey Lombardi on "Dallas," will star in a new Sci Fi Channel original movie (the kind they show on Saturday nights at 9, and the kind of truly, terribly entertaining flicks that BRBTV just loves). The movie, as of several weeks ago, was tentatively titled "Deadly Water." Sci Fi put out a call to viewers to give the film a better name. Entries were submitted on the Sci Fi website, and a winner was chosen. And the winner is ...

"Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep." The plotline: "A marine archeologist and a sailor team up to search for a priceless ancient treasure, only to find themselves in danger from a giant squid that seems to be protecting the treasure, and a ruthless rival who wants the artifact for himself." Scalia is the "ruthless rival," named Maxwell Odemus. Victoria Pratt of the syndicated sci-fi drama "Mutant X" also stars. The film has its world premiere on Sci Fi on Saturday, September 23 at 9 p.m. We'll be there!
