Thanks to the headsup, I caught Mr. D'Onofrio's appearance on the TODAY show this morning. He was speaking about THE GREAT BARRIER vote of course, and seemed genuinely excited about it. "It's cool," he told the interviewer, "And our show is all about cool." He had spoken to Olivia d'Abo, and she's apparently enjoying the debate as well. As always, he gave a great deal of credit to Rene Balcer for developing the character of Goren. There was no mention of the vote as a gimmick--Mr. D'Onofrio stressed that the move was in response to the internet debate about the Evil One.
And he looked good. Hair about medium length, blue shirt, dark suit. Very well turned out, especially for 7:30 on a Saturday morning. 'Course, with the LOCI shooting schedule he might be headed to work.
