Bill Campbell takes on a "Revolution"

We've kept up with Bill Campbell, our former Luke Fuller of "Dynasty," a little bit on this news blog. He's had a few roles here and there, nothing to sneeze at. Up next on his plate is "Revolution," a sci-fi drama set on a distant planet.

Campbell shares the screen with the legendary Peter Fonda for this one, directed by Simon West and written by John Bellucci and Ed Redlich. It will air as a two-hour pilot on the Sci Fi Channel, which has a little more about the movie here.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: "Batman Beyond" fans, read some interesting tidbits at Press the Action Button.

Spotted: Henry Silva

We'd never seen him on screen, at least as far as we could remember, but he had quite a captivating presence. An interesting mix of Sicilian and Spanish ancestry gave him an exotic aura, while that tall and lanky frame only added credence to that long, chiseled facial structure. And that voice ... well, that voice is how we know him, actually. He's Henry Silva, and to us Batfans, he's Bane. He voiced the pumped-up villain in "Batman: The Animated Series," "The New Batman Adventures" and "Superman." But long before those '90s spins, he had a rich and diverse acting career. Indulging in one of our favorite vices -- "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" on -- we spotted him in one of those early roles, nice and young and so interesting. He played high-end hit man Harry Silver (interesting name?) in the episode "The Better Bargain."
