It's our last MCM Expo interview! Jimmy sat down on two occasions with Ronald D. Moore and Esai Morales to discuss Caprica and Battlestar Galactica. Both interviews are round table press conference types so there will be others asking questions as well. Fret not, Jimmy got some good questions in! Ron Moore even remembered sharing Jimmy's flask of whiskey at Comic-Con a few years back.

The amazing UK legend that is Jonathan Ross graciously invited Jimmy over to his house for this interview. (For my fellow Americans that might not know him, Friday Night w/Jonathan Ross is the #1 chat show in the UK, he has a successful BBC Radio 2 show and movie review show. Hilarious entertainer for over 20 years, he really is one of the biggest names in showbiz in the UK.) He showed him his massive comic book collection including many original #1 issues of X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four and more! Tons of original art by Ditko, Kirby and others. David Monteith (Geek Syndicate) and Richard Starkings (Comicraft, Elephantmen) are along for the ride and chime in as well. Ross discusses his first written comic, Turf, as well as other artists/writers, movies, TV, and the business in general. Great stuff from a true comic fan!
