Alex did an interview with Matt Mitovich at TV Guide. They talked about Moonlight, Criminal Minds, Three Rivers, and even his new movie. The part in the interview that stuck out to me was this:
O’Loughlin: I plead with my Moonlight fans to give this show a chance if they let me give it a chance. I can’t do Moonlight again” it’s finished. The bottom line is that my true fans will follow me where I go.
I don’t think his wishes could be any clearer. He has moved on to other roles and is not going to be doing anything with Moonlight and wants his fans to follow suit.
I also noted with interest that Alex apparently turned down or ignored talk about several other projects CBS threw his way before Three Rivers. I am happy he held out until he got what he wanted.
In a almost contradictory interview with The Boston Herald he bemoaned the loss of Moonlight and gave an interesting statement that Joel Silver is in fact interested in doing a Moonlight movie.
(Executive producer) Joel Silver called me right before Christmas. ˜Alex, we’re making the movie. You in?˜Well, sure. He hung up, and I haven’t heard from him since. I don’t know what the answer to that is. I don’t know.
This was five months ago…is Silver still interested? For fans not willing to let Moonlight go, I think appealing to Joel Silver is your best bet.
