Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos Interview

Earlier this week, Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos took over the G4 studios for an important announcement about the sci-fi show's monumental influence on the United Nations.

We wrote about his live television interview earlier, where he talked about the United Nations changing its language on the use of word "race' as a cultural determinant. Not only was Battlestar Galactica the first television show invited to speak at the UN, but Olmos's passionate stance on uniting the world together has led the international organization to issue the following from their Durban Review Conference on human rights.

"6. Reaffirms that all peoples and individuals constitute one human family, rich in diversity, and that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights; and strongly rejects any doctrine of racial superiority along with theories which attempt to determine the existence of so-called distinct human races."

Though the UN charter has not officially been amended, Edward James Olmos's fight for social equality on behalf of Battlestar Galactica has clearly stepped beyond the television screen into global politics.

Before Olmos stepped on the Attack of the Show stage, he sat down with our Interactive team for an in-depth conversation about Battlestar Galactica, his follow-up in The Plan, the United Nations, the series' conclusion and Twitter. Get ready, because when the formidable Admiral Adama speaks, you always stop and listen.

Fresh Ink Online With Murs

Fresh Ink Online With Murs »


Anyone familiar with hip hop’s Murs knows he loves comic books. He raps about ‘em, he chats about ‘em, and he freestyles about ‘em (just check his Freestyle 101). Now he gets a chance to review ‘em as he fills in for his favorite host, the great Blair Butler, on Fresh Ink Online as she darts down to San Diego for Comic-Con. In fact, by the time you read this, Murs will have joined her at the famed comic book convention, but not before chatting about some of his favorite comics, including X-Factor, Queen and Country, DMZ, Black Lightning, Scott Pilgrim, Wolverine: Old Man Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova and Red Robin.

Plus, make sure to listen carefully for Murs’ controversial stand on one of the top writers in comics today. Is there a rap-comic beef a-brewin’? Will caps get peeled? Likely not, but it sure is fun to imagine such a thing, ain’t it?

Yes, you’ll soon see this crazy-haired rapper knows his stuff and you can quiz him on his comic book knowledge on this summer’s Rock The Bells tour, where he’ll be serving as an MC…and likely serving some MCs with his deadly rhyme skills.

Check out Murs at www.mursmusic.com and get Rock The Bells tour dates at www.rockthebells.com.

Get ever fresher with Fresh Ink Online on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.

Check out Murs on Freestyle 101 after the jump…

Breckin Meyer, Ryan Phillippe On Robot Chicken Spore At E3 »


Actors Breckin Meyer (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Road Trip, Garfield) and Ryan Phillippe (Stop-Loss, Crash, Flags of Our Fathers) stop by EA’s booth at E3 ’09 to chat about Meyer’s involvement in the upcoming Robot Chicken missions on Spore Galactic Adventures,  the new Madden NFL 10, Milo, and other delights at the ginormous videogame conference. 
 

Intern's Corner

This is the first in a series of observations from our interns here at G4tv.com, Rob, Meg, and Brian, who will be with us until the end of the summer. We wanted you to see what life was like at G4 through the eyes of an intern.

The gods here at G4TV have deemed it fit to give us insignificant portions of their daily life a voice. My name is Rob, and between endless hours of video game sessions and sleep, I come into work here in my little cubicle. I wake up every morning on the floor of my friend's studio apartment. After entering into my beaten up maroon 1995 Buick LeSabre to sit in traffic for an hour, I finally reach the studio, a drone-like march to the assigned cubicle commences. Wholly unnoticed by the important people running around me, I sit down and enjoy every single second of the day. That is until I am forced to return home by building security.
