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.
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.
— Update —
We forgot Thomas Kretschmann from Germany!

We keep an eye on all things Luisana Lopilato, and she is a bona fide star that will likely find new heights when American audiences get to know her. She is among the most interesting actors in The River. We were more than a little surprised when our RSS reader alerted us to a story accusing Lopilato of being a diva.
Remember how awesome Married With Children was? You watched it because of Christina Applegate and Ed O’Neill? The River‘s Luisana Lopilato was Argentina’s Kelly Bundy in Casados con Hijos, the Argentine re-make of Married. Actually Lopilato played Paola Argento. We’ve got video after the jump.
