Almost Human films scenes with Karl Urban, Michael Ealy & 2 guest stars - Gina Carano and John Larroquette
Almost Human filmed some scenes right near my house one day a few weeks ago.
In this set of scenes, most of the filming was indoors, but I did catch 1 short exterior scene that had a surprising guest star in it.
Former MMA fighter turned actress Gina Carano was doing a scene where she storms into a building in full gear with a gun.
As the day went on, I saw Karl Urban & Michael Ealy at different points, along with recently announced recurring guest star, 5X Emmy Award winning actor John Larroquette.
Like I said, there was not a lot to see outside of the 1 exterior scene, but heres a few pics from the set.
Since this could be quite possibly the last blog I will do about Almost Human, as its ratings suggest a cancellation is highly probable, let me just say I quite liked the show. While the cast were less receptive to autograph requests than their Wyman/Abrams pre-decessors Fringe were, they still were willing to sign when asked, didnt object to being photographed on set, and the crew was, respectful & professional in how they dealt with the public. From a public relations standpoint here in Vancouver, they did as much as they could to win over fans. Fingers crossed this wont be my last blog about them. If it is, thanks for reading it...whoever you are.
Almost Human returns to its Monday Nights starting tonight on FOX in the U.S. & Global in Canada.
Almost Human filmed a couple scenes at a downtown eastside diner called "The Ovaltine" on Hastings Street for an upcoming episode a few weeks ago.
In the scene I saw shot, John Kennex (Karl Urban) & Dorian (Michael Ealy) leaving the restaurant & get into their cruiser.
The on screen chemistry these two have shown so far has been phenomenal. So it should be no shock I found they really seemed to flow well during the takes too. Karl even mockingly commanding Michael to " get in the "expletive* car", even though they clearly werent seeming to be recording audio for these takes as the filming was done thru the restaurant inside point of view.
The Robot with human emotions DRN aka "Dorian" played by Ealy has been the star of the show so far. Kennex, played by Urban has been no slouch either. Whoever did the casting on this show really hit a home run with these 2 leading the show.
Almost Human is airing on Monday nights in the U.S. on FOX. In Canada On Global TV. They will return for the 2nd half of their short 13 episode 1st season on January 6th.
I found Almost Human filming some scenes (it was their 3rd location of the day) in historic Chinatown several weeks ago for tonights 6th episode of their 1st season.
In this scene, the LAPD were on the scene of some event, and Minka Kelly (Valerie Stahl) was there investigating. There didnt be a lot to the scene. She comes by, looks at the scene for a moment, then goes over to a car, gets in & talks to someone through a comm device & thats where the scene seems to end.
This was the 1st time I had seen Minka on set since they filmed the pilot episode back in March. It was also the first time I met Minka. I asked her to sign for me at the end of her shoot, and she did so. She, and the rest of the Almost Human team have some big shoes to fill as far as fan friendliness goes from Vancouver TV shows, especially from their creators pre-decessor "Fringe" who set the bar pretty high. PR is such a big part of television, hopefully this cast is up to the challenge eventually.

Almost Human buddy cop duo Karl Urban & Michael Ealy film scenes for the 1st season back in July, 2013
A few months ago, I caught the new J.J. Abrams & Joel Wyman sci-fi cop drama, Almost Human out filming scenes for their 1st season in an area known as "Olympic Village".
The scenes were between the cop partner duo of the human with a artificial leg Karl Urban (John Kennex) & the robot with the human emotions Michael Ealy (DRN - aka "Dorian"). In it, it appears Dorian was shot on duty before his partner walks up to him.
This was my 1st time catching them filming since the pilot episode. It was also my 1st time catching Michael Ealy on set. After seeing the preview video they released during Comic-Con for it, I am eager to see this show play out.
This was also my 1st time getting autographs from any of the cast on set, as I managed to get both Urban & Ealy on the set.
Below is some of the photos from this shoot.
Almost Human debuts in less than a week. November 17 & 18, 2013 on FOX. You can sneak previews on the FOX Website if you are in the U.S.
Almost Human will debut November 4, 2013. - Here is photos of Karl Urban & Minka Kelly filming that Pilot episode
This time last year I was eagerly following the Joel Wyman sci-fi cult classic "Fringe" everywhere I could as they filmed their final season.
This year, a Wyman project, backed by J.J. Abrams will again be a focus of Vancouver film set fans, as "Almost Human" has started its production on its inaugural season of this buddy cop sci-fi themed drama.
The premise, from what I can piece together is in the future, members of the LAPD will be teamed with robotic lifelike partners. John Kennex (Karl Urban) is a cop on the LAPD who has a dislike of robot partners. After an accident which sees him get a synthetic replacement leg, he takes time away from the force before returning. When he does, things have changed some. Human officers now must have a robotic partner. He is teamed up with Dorian (Michael Ealy) who has actually developed emotional feelings & is considered defective by the department.
I cant say I have figured where Valerie Stahl (Minka Kelly) fits into the story yet, but she also plays a role in the series. Along with Mackenzie Crooks, Lily Taylor & Michael Irby they are the main primary cast.
When they filmed the pilot here several months ago, I caught Karl & Minka doing a scene where a secured delivery truck was flipped over on the street. Here is some from the set of photos I got from that day. I will have more from the show as the season goes on.
You can see the FOX promo video for it (which looks reallllly good) here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykwxg534yAw
ALMOST HUMAN will debut Monday November 4th, 2013 on FOX at 8 PM (7 Central)
