I'll Be Amsterdammed




Why take a camera with you on vacation when you can use other peoples' snaps off the internet...
.
Holland! I'm not there yet, but will be this weekend at the SciFi Fest to end all scifi fests (at least as far as cities closest to being underwater goes) Utopia Convention. What am I going to talk about with Q! Ask him about that whole time lord thing I guess.
.
So far nothing is certain about any US cons, I'm sad to report. I was almost going to be going to Untied Con in Massachusetts again, but that didn't turn out, so I hope to soon have news for all you wonderful US based folks whom I've yet to visit. It will happen. One day.
.
Ding ding! casting news! I've been cast in a feature called Helen, as John, the, um, husband of um,... the script is set to arrive any day now. Ashley Judd's starring in it, and now, so is David Nykl, so it's time to get in line at the cineplex. I hear there's Oscar buzz for David Nykl in this one already...

Fantastic to hear about the movie--David Hewlett reports having a part, too. Both of you in it? I'm there.... Have fun in Europe...we'll be waiting here in the US (im)patiently.... ;-D

KimberlyFDR said...

Yay! New casting! So...you and David Hewlett are in this film? I know he was filming last week with Goran, so this would be a double treat.

Kelly said...

Congrats on your upcoming roll...have you started practicing your acceptance speech yet? Be sure to let David down gently. Have fun in Amsterdam.

Wow! Congrats on the film! Getting to act with Ashley and Goran...so cool. And with David Hewlett... lol..I bet you just miss him so much and can't wait to act with him again! hehehe

I will SO be watching this film when it comes out! It has my two favorite Davids, plus Goran and Ashley!(I love her...she just seems so sweet..good PR, eh?lol)

So 3 hot guys and a babe...sounds like a funny title for a show.

And I am envious of your travels! You have been going all over Europe....I wanna go too! I just have to talk my hubby into it..oh yeah...and save lots of money. ;~P

I hope you have a blast on your trip and a lot of fun making the movie!
Take care,
Kimberly

Vikitty said...

Oh nice! Wow, I know of so many people being in Helen now! I think it's on my 'must see' list for sure! Congrats on getting the part! :)

Enjoy yourself at the cons! Hopefully I'll get to meet you one day! And well, take pics!

Paula said...

The invitation still stands from Dragon*Con. I hope you'll consider attending that.

Congrats on snagging the part in Helen! For the film's sake, I hope you and David Hewlett don't work on the same days. That could drive them crazy seeing you two riff off each other! :)

Bon voyage!

Enjoy your trip to Amsterdam! I was there last Spring for work and had the opportunity to do a little site-seeing as well.

Feel free to wander through my snapshots from Amsterdam as well.

Somehow I stumbled across this blog, and I'm very glad I did!

Congratulations on the upcoming movie, it sounds like it has a solid cast and crew (the names I recognise anyway). I look forward to hearing more!

You've been here before, so I assume you know that Utopia isn't actually in Amsterdam, but The Hague, or Scheveningen to be more precise (at the beach). ;-) The Dutchies are all looking forward to seeing you again!

Michelle Lunsford said...

Safe travels to Amsterdam. And great news about the 'Helen' role. I'll be looking forward to this!

shelsfc said...

I've never been to a stargate/scifi convention, and I SOOOOOO would have go had you been there!

Charles Schneider said...

Congratulations on the new project! I hope Amsterdam doesn't fail to entertain you while you're there.

Congrats on the new role! I only have 13 words to go on, but it sounds like an interesting plot so far! XD

Enjoy Amsterdam...

morjana said...

Hi, David.

Congratulations on your role in "Helen!"

Thank you so much for taking the time to update your fans with wonderful blog. I really enjoy reading it.

I'm also really enjoying SGA season four! Zelenka rocks!

Best wishes, Morjana

Rosehawk said...

Wow, you are sure keeping busy.

Have fun in Amsterdam. Keeping fingers crossed that you will eventually make a US convention that I can actually attend!

Congradulations on getting a role in Helen and looking forward to hearing more about your role! I will actually go to the theater to see this movie!!!!

Becky S said...

Utopia Convention sounds like fun! Have a great time in Holland.

Hope you can find some US cons soon. And congrats on the role in "Helen".

Shai said...

I'm very jealous! I've always wanted to go to Amsterdam. And as a photographer I demand you to take your own pictures! It's your own unique view of the world.
Congrats on the new role! Looking forward to seeing it.

Fran said...

Cool you and David Hewlett are going to be in Helen together. That is so cool. Can't wait. Have fun in Amsterdam. Take lots of pics.

As Paula said: "Congrats on snagging the part in Helen! For the film's sake, I hope you and David Hewlett don't work on the same days. That could drive them crazy seeing you two riff off each other! :)"

*lol* The exact same thoughts are running through my head! I hope you get to go to a non-Creation con in the US and somewhere that I preferably can drive to... :)

Okay, housework awaits and I need to get that done so I can go watch SGA live tonight at my parents' place w/ the huge LCD tv in the living room. :-p

Have fun in Europe and I hope you have a safe trip. :)

Tauri Sith said...

Feature film? Oh boy! Now some of my friends will know one of the people I talk about!

Too bad about that MA con... there are plenty others, though!

Wolfen said...

I second the vote for Dragon*Con! :)

Saw Doppelganger last night. Glad to see Zelenka getting out of Atlantis some! Liked that scene in the lab with him and Keller, too. :)

Kanku said...

Have fun at your convention ^^
SO far though...come on, come on...I'm not patient I don't like waiting ^^
Yay, more movies. I can't wait to hear about it since it's going to be amazing. Everything automaticly is once the name 'David Nykl' is on the casting list.
By the way you have the coolest last name ^^

The Utopia convention was great! David behaved really well ;)
He did actually know the convention was in Scheveningen but he was planning to go sightseeing in Amsterdam...

Stargazertje said...

David, it was nice to see you again this year. Thankfully you knew that Scheveningen and Amsterdam weren't the same. Can't wait for Crossroads (Germany). Hope you had fun in this little country. I'm sorry if I made you feel uneasy in any way. I promise, I will make it up. See you in 3 weeks.

Scarym said...

Hate to nag but you have canadian fans too. : ) Any chance of seeing you at a canadian con?

(((((HUGS)))))

fififolle said...

Congratulations on the part in Helen, and hope Utopia went well :)

Anonymous said...

Will we ever get to see a Zelenka episode?

Klenotka said...

Takze Davide....Utopia Con was great. I am really sorry this was the last one. I hope they will change their minds and make a new convention or another Utopia.
And thanks for your housewife! :-)
