5 reasons why The River will kick television ass

3 Jul

We’ve blogged about The River for over a month now, which in many ways seems crazy considering the show won’t debut until December at the earliest or as late as March 2012. But it’s NOT crazy because The River will be one of the most talked about shows on television and it’s going to change television. Here’s why The River will be so very awesome.


Jeff Galfer was George on All My Children

27 Jun

Jeff Galfer will play Sammy Kirsch in The River, but before that he was busy doing photography, commercials, and guest roles in on several TV shows. He was Dr. Burke in All My Children, but was able to play two different characters on the same show!  I prefer him as George below (he starts speaking at 2:24 in).

Classy girls like her don’t like malt liquor!

Eloise Mumford Joins Twitter

Eloise Mumford plays Lena Landry in The River. We can’t wait to get to know her character. Lena is billed as “sexy and resourceful.” We also know that Eloise was the first cast in the show.

Here is a list of some of the Twitter accounts associated with the show:

This is part 2 of our interview with Jeff Galfer, who plays Sammy Kirsch on The River. Previously, we talked about how he was cast and what to expect from Sammy. We also excerpted a conversation from Galfer to confirm that Luisana Lopilato is NOT on The River.


Luisana Lopilato is NOT in The River

Eloise Mumford; not Luisana Lopilato

Luisana Lopilato, the cast member we were most excited about, is not even in The River. Internet rumors, backed up by sites like IMDB, led us all down a dead-end path. I had my suspicions, which were legitimized by our interview with actual cast member Jeff Galfer.


Jeff Galfer Interview Part 1

Jeff Galfer will be a huge part of The River. Well, at least for season 1… I’m just hoping the guy’s character can stay alive, because we all know what happens to the likable, funny guys in the horror genre. Galfer plays Sammy Kirsch, a member of the documentary crew who is a geeky, fun guy who wears Hawaiian shirts and sandals. Galfer gave us a great interview, which we will be breaking up into a few sections. There’s even a big surprise for all of you Luisana Lopilato fans.

Jeff Galfer as Sammy Kirsch

I follow several Twitter accounts associated with The River. Some have followed back including Jeff Galfer who will be our comedic relief on the show. Galfer plays Sammy Kirsch, a member of the documentary camera crew. We know that he is always looking for a good time and he will be the funny guy.


Paulina Gaitan stars as Jahel in The River

Paulina Gaitan Ruiz

The River will have wide international appeal with stars like Paulina Gaitan (Mexico), Joe Anderson (England), Luisana Lopilato (Argentina), Bruce Greenwood (Canada), Leslie Hope (Canada), Paul Blackthorne (England), Shaun Parkes (England), Daniel Zacapa (Honduras), Eloise Mumford (US), and Jeff Galfer (US). Stars like Gaitan and Lopilato are not yet well-known in the US, but they bring a strong international fan base.

Paulina Gaitan will play Jahel. Her character is a local girl with great mechanical skills. She is very skeptical of the rescue mission because she knows that nobody comes back from that area of the river, called Boiúna. Jahel only speaks Portuguese.

Outside of The River, Gaitan is known for her roles in Sin Nombre, Trade, and We Are What We Are.

We forgot Thomas Kretschmann from Germany!

One possible criticism of The River is that there are not well-known actors, outside of Bruce Greenwood and Joe Anderson. Luisana Lopilato is very well-known, just not in America yet, and we look forward to getting to know her.
