Sundance 2010: Tyler Labine Talks What Could Have Been in Store for Invasion Fans
I don’t know how many other “Invasion” fans are out there, but I remember exactly how I felt after I watched what would end up being the series finale of the short-lived ABC show. It was as if someone had hit me upside the head with an aluminum bat and then did the Macarena on my skull.
Starring Eddie Cibrian, William Fichtner, Nathan Baesel, Tyler Labine, Kari Matchett, and Alexis Dziena, the sci-fi serial centered around a hurricane that hits the Florida Everglades, masking the arrival of an alien hybrid bent on invading the human population and taking humanity to the next evolutionary level. The show debuted in the fall of 2005 with the ever-solid “Lost” as its lead in.
However, ABC wasn’t willing to go any further with the series, despite the fact that it initially ordered a second season, so the first (and ultimately last) season of “Invasion” ended with a rather abrupt finale in May 2006.
As a fan of the series, as well as Labine’s work on “Reaper” (another unfairly treated show), I wanted to talk to the actor about what it is that he enjoys so much about working on genre projects as well as get to the bottom of what happened with “Invasion” and whether or not creator Shaun Cassidy had any plans for the series had it moved forward.
You can check out Labine below talking about not only what Cassidy had envisioned for season two, but for the entire series – which he originally had hoped would run for five seasons.
Labine is currently making the rounds to promote his latest project, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, which debuted this past Friday during the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
