Pro­ject Blue Book

Tampa Bay Times - - Etc -

his the­o­ries on alien vis­i­ta­tion changed over the years, his ba­sic opin­ion never wa­vered.

“I think, cer­tainly start­ing out, Hynek thought that … the idea of this as an ac­tual phys­i­cal craft com­ing from some­where else was pretty un­likely,” Gillen says. “But he did have these other be­liefs. … The idea that there are other di­men­sions or that there’s a veil be­tween this world and some­thing else. I know this seems pretty far­fetched, but is it im­pos­si­ble as any­thing? I don’t know. I don’t know what they are ei­ther.”

Join­ing Gillen in the cast is Neal Mc­Donough (Le­gends of To­mor­row), who por­trays Gen. James Hard­ing, a per­cep­tive gen­eral re­spon­si­ble for head­ing Pro­ject Blue Book. As a de­vout Chris­tian, Mc­Donough’s view of the world is based on the Bi­ble. But work­ing on Pro­ject Blue Book has made him think.

“What if there was an­other plan? What if there are other things out there? I look at the sky now with my kids and my wife and I think dif­fer­ently af­ter do­ing a show like this,” Mc­Donough The show pre­miered last week and airs at 10 p.m. Tues­days on the His­tory Chan­nel. said. “… The amaz­ing thing about what His­tory has done with (ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer) Robert Ze­meckis is they put to­gether this show that makes us think.

“And to have a show like that give us pause and think what else is out there. Are there other things? I love that about this show and I think that’s what the au­di­ence is re­ally go­ing to grav­i­tate to­wards.”

As to whether or not UFOs are real, Mc­Donough says the more im­por­tant point to re­mem­ber is the pub­lic is fas­ci­nated with the sub­ject. He calls the cu­rios­ity about whether there is some­thing out there is just part of be­ing hu­man.
