The Oakdale Leader - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Cindy Elavsky

Q: I love the ac­tor who played Oliver on “The Orig­i­nals” and was sad when his char­ac­ter died. Can you tell me what he’s been up to lately? -- Margie F., via email


Chase Cole­man’s char­ac­ter might be dead, but his ca­reer is very much alive -- and churn­ing full speed ahead. Since end­ing his ten­ure on the hit su­per­nat­u­ral CW series, Chase has worked on a num­ber of projects, in­clud­ing the David Du­chovny series “Aquar­ius” and tons of shorts, movies and minis­eries. Those of you who’ve at­tended an “Orig­i­nals” fan con­ven­tion will know that Chase is a tal­ented mu­si­cian, and he and his band Mercy Mode are cur­rently tour­ing.

Chase’s cur­rent pas­sion project is “Cy­press Bayou,” which is be­ing shopped around to var­i­ous net­works. Chase com­pares the series to “’True Blood’ mixed with ‘True De­tec­tive’ mixed with ‘The Vam­pire Diaries.’ Maybe even a tad ‘Game of Thrones’ be­cause it’s very char­ac­ter­driven -- there are lots of dif­fer­ent fam­i­lies and houses in this small town.”

Chase can’t wait to get this series to the masses, and I can’t blame him after he told me what it’s about: “I play the leader of the garou, which are were­wolves. My fam­ily’s been cursed to where we would be­come crea­tures on the full moon and ter­ror­ize the town. But then this fam­ily of good witches took pity upon us, and while you can’t cure the curse, you can tweak it. Once we were able to con­trol our shift­ing, we be­came pro­tec­tors of the town.”

Fol­low the series on Face­book (face­book.com/cy­press­bayou) and Twit­ter (twit­ter.com/cbay­oufan­dom), and let the so­cial-me­dia world know that you want to see a net­work pick up this series STAT. ***

Q: Do you have any news about “The X-Files”?

-- Marc V. in Ge­or­gia

A: This sea­son will have 10 episodes (four more than last sea­son’s six), eight of which will be stand-alone su­per­nat­u­ral mys­ter­ies for Fox Mul­der and Dana Scully to solve. I’ve also learned that the char­ac­ters of Agents Ein­stein and Miller will be back (which I am not thrilled about).

Fox en­ter­tain­ment chair­man David Mad­den re­vealed: “You’ll be launched into a very ur­gent ad­ven­ture that has a lot to do with Wil­liam -Mul­der and Scully’s kid -- so the search for Wil­liam will be a sig­nif­i­cant thread through the show. You will see the Cig­a­rette Smok­ing Man (Wil­liam B. Davis). You may see the Lone Gun­men some­where along the line. There will be other char­ac­ters from the pre­vi­ous mythol­ogy who will be reprised.”


Q: Will Ama­zon’s “Bosch” re­turn for a fourth sea­son?

-- Ray C., Kis­sim­mee, Fla.

A: “Bosch” will in­deed re­turn for a fourth sea­son, and while an ex­act date had not been given as of this writ­ing, it most likely will be spring 2018. In the mean­time, you can stream sea­sons one through three on Ama­zon Prime if you need a re­fresher, or if you want to see what all the hub­bub is about.
