Oh Alias. Look at all of these spy shows trying to steal your place in my heart. Don’t they know that no-one does it better than Sydney, Jack and the gang?
While there’s yet to be a TV series that has topped Alias in the spy category, that hasn’t stopped talk of an Alias Movie or reboot. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly the question was posed to Jennifer Garner and Victor Garber – any chance of an Alias return?
Garner and Garber laugh off any chance of them returning for an Alias big screen adventure, with Garner saying, “there’s not going to be a movie.” According to Garber, “everyone asks that question and I always say, it’s not going to happen.”
The pair would sooner invite people to “go back and start at season one.” Garber suggests that they’re ‘too old’ for such antics, while Garner says believes they’ve already told the ‘Alias’ story, so what’s left to tell?
Garber does however offer hope to fans eager for something Alias-related by jokingly admitting that he’d do “Alias in the old folks home.” 🙂
As for their best Alias memories, they both point to the pilot episode with Garber recounting one particular fond moment with JJ. Abrams:
“And I remember in the car scene, JJ. Abrams directing the pilot, in the back of the car just like screaming at me – ‘say it again, no do it again, say it again!’ – it’s like ‘shut up!..shut up, you’re making me insane!”
Great stuff and a great little video which you can watch over at EW.’
