The Middleman… Again…

Once more into the silliness of the Middleman… Again.

So. There is a website called MediaBlvd Magazine that had an interview with one of the stars of this show which, by the way, premiered on ABC Family channel on the 16th…

They interviewed Brit Morgan, who plays Lacey on the series.

That interview is here.

And this is a picture of Brit.

In any case, the interview I feel is almost a carbon copy of every other interview that any of the people involved with the series have made.

Especially this quote from the interview:

“We have zombies, we have immortal tuba players. We have killer Peruvian flying pike. There’s a succubus; and they are fashion models that feed on the souls of innocent men. That is a very interesting plot line. We have aliens, of course, and portholes” she adds.

Oddly, almost the exactly same line was spoken by the series creator and other actors involved in the series in previous articles.

Having a peek around spoiler sites and such, I have discovered that the first appearence of a Succubi in the series will be in episode 2 which is next week on Monday the 23rd…

A spoiler from that episode is:

The Accidental Occidental Conception – Season 1, Episode 2 – When a Terra Cotta Warrior is brought back to life, The Middleman and Wendy set out to stop him before he can take the last living heir of the Qin dynasty to the land of the dead, releasing a hail of fire that will rain down on the Earth for a thousand years. With some help from fashionista and reformed succubus, Roxy Wasserman, the two must make a daring trip to the underworld to get the deed done. Still stinging from Wendy’s harsh criticisms, Lacey lands herself a job as Roxy’s assistant, which tests her activist spirit.


It sounds like that could be interesting and after the first episode, which I just barely managed to stay awake through, this might be something worth watching.


So. Then the question becomes of course, what does the Succubus look like?

Well, she is being played by Elaine Hendrix, and this is what she looks like:

So. I have just two things to say at this point before seeing the episode. One is that I really hate her hair. Far too short for a Succubus. Otherwise I think she could play the role well with her overall looks. Assuming that she doesn’t go over the top in the role. I fear that the series will portray her in the typical Succubus fashion, but seeing that she is supposed to be a reformed Succubus, I will give the series the benefit of the doubt this week and see what happens.

Checking Yahoo TV, it lists this episode as appearing on June 23 on ABC Family.

Don’t disappoint me.

I’m warning you…

    I’m predicting that they’ll screw it up somehow.

    I agree with BF. But I keep asking you to ignore the stupid mortals, Majesty, and none are stupider than those involved in most television. :kiss:

    Hi Tera,
    I would love to send you some promo shots of Elaine’s appearnce in “The MIddleman”. She is a dear friend of mine and had a GREAT time with this role. 😀 I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Please email me if you’d like pix.

    *huggles* Hi Kris… I really want Elaine to play the role of the Succubus well… There have been so many portrayals of Succubi that treat them like vampires instead of what they really are…

    At least to my hubby and myself…

    And that is beings of mischief and sexuality with a hint of the Angel that is within them… Too many of the Succubi in the movies are all blood and slash and gore which in truth isn’t what they are about….

    What really gets to me in particular is, and I am hoping that the role of a reformed Succubus reflects this, is that there is a woman behind the horns and tail that has a personality and a heart and a mind…

    Succubi aren’t simply “demons”…

    We’re different beings than that…

    So i’m hoping and have my fingers crossed that the role will be something that brings some happiness to my heart when I see it…


    Thank you for visiting and please give Elaine my love and hugs!

    And I’d love to see what she looks like!

    The mystery is killing me!
