In Ã¢â‚¬Å“Veronica Mars,Ã¢â‚¬Â Jason Dohring was the "obligatory psychotic jackass" Logan Echolls but in Ã¢â‚¬Å“Moonlight,Ã¢â‚¬Â heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something else entirely as the ancient vampire Josef. So far on the series, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen that he has a few secrets of his own and in the upcoming episodes, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see a more in-depth look at his past Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ and he may also have a love interest. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think the successful thing [came] more in the first episode, with the hedge fund trader, and the real estate,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said in an interview with the TV Addict. Ã¢â‚¬Å“In the episode this Friday, you find out basically why heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s always concerned about Mick dating humans and being with humans, like what is that? ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basically a personal reason that JosefÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gone through. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know if itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s proper or whatever, but I always kind of take the idea that maybe Josef has gone through what MickÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going through. Maybe one time he was a good person, and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll sort of see glimpses of that, you know, with my former hairstyle, and my really nice suit in New York in this weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s episode.Ã¢â‚¬Â Originally when the series premiered in the fall, Ã¢â‚¬Å“MoonlightÃ¢â‚¬Â struggled to find its feet but since then has stabilized in the ratings to the point where it is now finally in a position to tell the types of stories the show wants to tell. But with the Writers Guild of America still on strike, the question becomes how much of a future does Ã¢â‚¬Å“MoonlightÃ¢â‚¬Â really have?Ã‚Â Well, according to Dohring there is reason to be positive that the series will be back for another season. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Les Moonves [President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS] said a few days ago, some kind stuff about our show and The Big Bang Theory, about us coming back for a second season,Ã¢â‚¬Â he revealed. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t speak for the producers, but that was given in a press interview, which is obviously a good sign. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of plus points. Our show is one of two shows that have been up-trending in viewership. So obviously thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good sign. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re right around 8 million, which is pretty high. Having CBS as backup, promo-ing the show, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re sitting there watching golf and see a promo, which helps out a lot. We just finished shooting number 12 about 3 or 4 days ago. It was very good. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a vampire that comes that makes me look like a popper which is cool. It goes back in history. We have some great history, makeup and sets, and like an Ã¢â‚¬Ëœold world, from a different timeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ feel to the show and the storyline comes out. I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be really cool to see how it all turns out. Great makeup and George Washington hair and all that cool stuff. [Air date] is sometime in January. 11 and 12 will both air in January [January 4th and 11th].Ã¢â‚¬Â To read the rest of the interview, please click here.
