Just when you thought FRINGE couldn’t get any stranger, a funny thing happened
on the way to the forum in a little underground Harvard Lab.
On our recent visit to the set of FRINGE, the cast — looking for something, heck, anything to share that didn’t involve spilling the beans on the super-secret two-part second season finale that is currently filming as we speak — let it slip that as part of Fox’s May Sweeps programming, which will have many of your favorite Fox shows tapping into their inner Gleek, the Fringe Division will be breaking out into song!
“This is a Sci-fi show and I kind of figured the roles would be set and that would be what you do,” teased Jasika Nicole (Astrid) who will perform a song from A Chorus Line as part of a story-line that involves Walter telling a bedtime story to Olivia’s niece. “But to be in period makeup and get to sing, I’ve ended up doing way more that I ever imagined I would.” Added actor Lance Reddick who seemed to relish the opportunity to let his guard down and put his musical background to good use. “We all sing and I play the piano,” revealed Reddick. “I can play the piano, but I’m not a pianist. They sent me the recording and I pretty much had to learn it by rote.”
“Overture” will air on April 29 at 9PM on FOX.
