Kristen: More Red World?

So I'm curious if this just means for the rest of the season or next season also?!?!?! babyjameson9: Fringe!!! Fringe boss Joel Wyman tell us, "[Stories from Over There are] not going to end. It's part of the language of the series now...We [now] know that everybody has really invested in the stories over there, and we can promise that it will be even more compelling and we're going to develop those characters even more and we're going to see more of our characters through their eyes and their characters through our eyes...The baby will be part of it, but how it's handled—this is Fringe. It won't be normal."

Fringe Exclusive: Deadwood's Brad Dourif Saddles Up for Season Finale

April 5, 2011 08:44 AM PDT Matt Webb Mitovich A key role for Fringe‘s Season 3 finale has been cast — and as with everything on the Fox series, there’s a bit of a twist involved. Fringe Countdown Teaser: What Happens at 6:02 AM?! Brad Dourif, whom many of you remember as Deadwood‘s Doc Cochran, has been tapped to play a mysterious character named Moreau in the sure-to-be-intense Fringe finale airing Friday, May 6. The wrinkle is that the original casting breakdown for this character specifically sought a “well-known Japanese actor … who speaks English” to fill the role. Dourif is not a Japanese actor, at least not a well-known one. He is, however, known for bringing chills to the big screen, where his long resume includes Eyes of Laura Mars, the voice of Chucky in that series of fright films and, most recently, the sheriff in Rob Zombie’s recent run of Halloween redos. He also of note played The Lord of the Rings‘ Wormtongue, and since Fringe fave John Noble was Denethor (as TVLine reader Jeff points out), we may have a bit of a Middle-earth reunion on our hands. On TV, in addition to Deadwood, his credits include appearances on Star Trek: Voyager and The X-Files.
