Aaron will star in an episode for the new web series by Geek & Sundry called WRITTEN BY A KID. He will play a fireman in the episode FIRE CITY. The episode was directed by W. Jonathan Sims and co-stars Cory Williams.

The first episode of WRITTEN BY A KID premieres next Wednesday (July 18th) at 10am PST with "Scary Smash", written by 5-year-old Brett Baligad, directed by Daniel Strange, starring Dave Foley as "Milkman," Kate Micucci as "Lady" and introducing Joss Whedon as "Gerald." I'm not sure when Aaron's episode will air but I'll let you know once I find out.

This video explains what WRITTEN BY A KID is about.


This is the season 1 trailer for WRITTEN BY A KID. Aaron's episode is shown from time stamp 00:24 - 00:29.

I wonder if this means we'll see Aaron in a cameo in one of the remaining episodes of Season 3 of SHELF LIFE the Series or maybe Season 4 (???).

Some fans on Aaron's Facebook Fanpage have been asking if HEMLOCK GROVE will only be airing on Netflix in the USA, so I thought I'd repost the answer on here as well. I've been told by TPTB that it will air everywhere there is Netflix. So that means USA, Canada, UK and Ireland.

If you're like me and live in a country that doesn't have Netflix they have said .... "We will have exciting news about the non Netflix territories in the next few months." So once I hear something about that I'll let everyone know.

Below are the tweets by Gaumont TV from the 'Netflix Kick-off Party' for HEMLOCK GROVE on Friday night (July 6) in Toronto.

There is only one photo of Aaron (the same one I posted previously) but there are photos of the writers, directors, producer, cast members and creative consultants.

For those of you that don't use twitter, or may have missed these, here is screen caps of tweets about HEMLOCK GROVE by Aaron, Eli Roth (Executive Producer & Director) and Gaumont TV (the Studio/Production Company) and Katie O'Connell (CEO of Gaumont International Television).

The Gaumont TV tweets include some behind-the-scenes photos from HEMLOCK GROVE. Enjoy :)

CONGRATULATIONS to Aaron on joining the cast of HEMLOCK GROVE in the role of SHERIFF SWORN.

HEMLOCK GROVE is a horror/thriller series based on the novel of the same name by Brian McGreevy. The 13-episode first season will air exclusively on NETFLIX in early 2013. Executive producer Eli Roth ("HOSTEL") will direct three episodes (the premiere and the last two) and director-producer Deran Sarafian ("HOUSE") is reported to be directing four episodes. Brian McGreevy is adapting the series with longtime writing partner Lee Shipman. According to Wikipedia, Brian McGreevy has said that "he has the second book almost finish and the third book is fully outlined". So here's hoping to many more season of Hemlock Grove. The novel and the TV series are set in Pittsburgh but the show will be filmed in Toronto from July 10 - December 14.

Below is the announcement via DEADLINE...

OK. So Aaron is in Toronto right now to film a new series. But we're not allowed to talk about it yet until there's been an official announcement from TPTB.

Last night (Friday) the Studio/Production Company (Gaumont TV) were tweeting photos from the "Netflix Kick-off Party". I tweeted them and asked "do you have any photos of Sheriff Sworn? Pleasssseeeee :)" and within minutes they posted this photo.



[Aaron and Elisa Todd Roth, director of creative affairs]

There are no prizes for guessing what the series is because Aaron has tweeted about it 3 times already, I have posted about it on here and on the facebook fanpage. But they all had to be deleted because we've been told we're not allowed to talk about it until it's "official". But I know a lot of you had already seen it before it was taken down. If you know what the show is, please no talking about it in the comments. Just enjoy the pretty picture :)

ATTENTION TORONTO FANS: Because Aaron is in Toronto right now (filming that thing we're not allowed to talk about yet) he will be making an appearance at the POLARIS convention on Sunday to sign autographs from 1pm-3pm.

Polaris 26
July 6 - 8, 2012
Richmond Hill, Ontario. CANADA
http://www.tcon.ca/polaris/



I believe the plan is for Aaron to be sitting next to Neil Grayson (EUREKA) from 1pm-3pm. Then Wil Wheaton will be signing near Aaron from 2pm. This is for Sunday only. Aaron will not be there on Saturday.

Below is a funny video clip from Aaron's guest panel at Denver Comic-Con.



Video Description: Happened to record a hilarious video of Aaron Douglas telling us how Robin Williams got George Lucas to watch Battlestar Galactica. (I am so sorry for recording in vertical. I was in the second row and some guys head kept forcing my camera out of focus...)
 
 
My apologies for forgetting to post about this on here. If you're following Aaron on twitter or are a member of his Facebook Fanpage you will know that he is in the new Steven Seagal movie playing FBI Agent Adrian Sloan. It is one of the TRUE JUSTICE movies that get released on DVD overseas (in Asia, Germany, I think). Then they cut the movie in half and make it into two episodes that air on tv. The show airs on 5USA (Channel 5) in the UK and on ReelzChannel in the USA. Aaron's episode will air on tv during season 2 of TRUE JUSTICE.


Below is copy of all of Aaron's tweets about it...

Here's a video of Aaron at Denver Comic Con. Everyone in the audience seems to be killing themselves laughing. I don't really "get it". I guess you had to be there :)



video description: I filmed as much of this as I could on low batteries, hope you laugh as much as we did!


And here's a video interview that Girls of Geek did with Aaron at the con.



video description: Michelle interviews Aaron Douglas on the convention floor doing Denver Comic Con 2012!


I wish Aaron's publicist (I don't even know if he has one of those) or agent/manager/someone would hand out a list to people that want to interview him that reads: Do not ask him what he thought when he found out he would be one of the final five. And don't ask him if that was Scotland that Chief went to in the final episode. I don't know about you guys but I'm getting tired of hearing him get asked those same questions again and again.
 
 
 
 
Aaron is scheduled to appear at the following convention in the USA.

Denver Comic Con
June 15-17th, 2012
Colorado Convention Center

I can't see him listed as a guest on their website yet, but they tweeted about it and it's on their facebook page.

Below is the game demo for WATCH DOGS. This is the Ubisoft game that Aaron was working on when he was in Montreal. Aaron is on screen from timestamp 3:29 - 4:38.

Here is some screen caps of Aaron's character. WTH? I don't even have the words for this. What is he supposed to be? Guido the killer pimp? LOL.



 
 
Here are some photos of Aaron in the recording studio for the new THE TOWN PANTS album.



(1). "Gang vocals for the new CD with Aaron Douglas, Dave Keogh and Duane Keogh."
(2). "Recording with @theaarondouglas on back-up/gang vocals. He's sporting the #magicrecordingsweater"
(3). "It's gang vocal day here at Imagined Aire studios... - with Dave Keogh, Aaron Chapman, Duane Keogh and Aaron Douglas."
(4). "Warming up — with Aaron Douglas, Dave Keogh and Mo Sherwood."
(5). "Aaron Douglas kicking out the jams. You may recognize him as "Chief Tyrol" from Battlestar Galactica or perhaps "Frank Leo" from The Bridge...either way, he sexes up The Magic Recording Sweater..."


FYI: "The Magic Recording Sweater" (the white sweater with the hearts on it) is just a fun thing the band members and guest musicians/singers took turns wearing during the recording of the album. Check out THIS album for more photos of people wearing it.


More proof on how awesome THE TOWN PANTS are, here are some screen caps of their appearance on URBAN RUSH in March 2006. They held up a sign that read "Aaron Douglas is a Cylon!". They guessed it before anyone knew (even Ron Moore and the writers) :)





UPDATE (May 25th): Below is a video montage from the recording of the new THE TOWN PANTS album. Aaron can be seen at time stamp 1:21 - 1:23 and 1:39 - 1:55.

 
 
Aaron is on WIRED's "100 Geeks You Should Be Following on Twitter" list.
What? Aaron is a geek?!?!? I'm going to have to unfriend him :)

I found a photo of Aaron in the GALLERY section of the DEATH DO US PART website. Aaron has a cameo in the film playing the character Harry.

In THIS audio interview that SCI-FI TALK did with Director Nicholas Humphries, he is asked what the shooting schedule was like. In part of his response he says "We had another day just in North Vancouver in a Ranger's Station, that opens and closes the movie". So judging from Aaron's clothing I'm assuming this is where his scenes will be in the movie.
