“The other day I was in Pittsburgh shooting [the CBS pilot Three Rivers], when this girl comes running up to me. Before I could finish ascertaining what I thought was going to happen, she pounced through the air, like a tiger, and landed on my chest with her arms around my neck and her legs around my waist.
After I got her off and thanked her for the hug, she demanded to know when Moonlight was coming back.”

“I look back at it with a broken heart for the most part. I put every part of me into that show. I was fighting for it from every angle and I was there from the very beginning.
It feels to me that ‘Moonlight’s’ disappearing out of my grasp.
It’s sad, but I’m so glad to have been a part of it.”

He was excellent in Moonlight.I really Miss it ..But he’s great in h50.Love McGarrett!!
Yes Lucy, I think he gives so much of himself for every role….And that makes him good in all of them!!

He said ‘ascertaining’! *swoon* one of my favourite words! And whoever this girl was, we need to accord her honorary FUCUP status immediately (or at the very least, honorary Mooney status).
From a purely selfish point of view, I can’t be sorry Moonlight ended because I never knew he existed before H50 (horror!), but it’s sad to ‘hear’ him talk about it. F U CBS!!
(love the top gif, btw!)
It´s sad to watch his interviews during ML promo days. He expected the show to go on for 3 years 😦
I wonder if that girl followed him to H50…she sure sounds like a proper FUCUP material. And he considered that “jump” a hug…we are so going for the group hug/fucup slutpile
Awwwww….love the black and white gif……he’s so dreamy.
Loved seeing this after all of the negativity following the ‘error’ comments he made a few months ago. And that fan, lucky her! Don’t think I’d have the nerve to do that 🙂
Maybe it is like the force pulling you when you get close to him……that would be my excuss – “Sorry it was beyond my control to jump on you, I was pulled by the force!” 😆
Dunno, F, I think I’d just stand there dumbstruck. Force or no force. My neighbour met Scott last year when she was holidaying in Hawaii. Just happened to come across some filming somewhere. Didn’t get to experience the force, mind you, as a bodyguard said no way, lady (well something like that anyway), when she tried to get close. I think he was preparing for a scene and didn’t want to be disturbed. But she met Scott and got a photo with him which was published in a mag here. Said he was lovely. And short.
I guess I should be like Alicia and happy that Moonlight was cancelled, like her I didn’t know who Alex was before H50, but damn I miss these roles when he really got I act! McG is getting better…I think he’s pushing them to give him more character stuff but just damn! I miss Mick. Alex was Mick. He brought something to this show I don’t think anyone else could have.
F U CBS. F U.
Under ‘bittersweet’ in the dictionary it says ‘CBS cancels Moonlight’. (I checked.)
F U CBS.
I was a late arrival to the adore Alex party too…and I didn’t fall hard for him until late 2011 (wtf was wrong with me?!!) ..that was when I had to buy all of his work (ML,TR,OF,FEED,etc,etc,etc)..I .watched Moonlight non-stop in one weekend…told a few friends about how great it was so had to buy another dvd so I could lend one out and have one in my possession at ALL times..now if I don’t watch an eppy at least once a week I go into serious withdrawl. There are no words to describe how much I love Alex as Mick..like you said ESS “Alex was Mick”…sometimes I find it difficult to believe that Mick and Steve (and Michael and Jack and Marcus and Vincent) are played my the same person…I guess that’s what makes Alex such a great actor!!! I would have loved to have seen a S2 (or at the very least see what happened after that door closed!!!)…so I wholeheartedly agree F U CBS!!
Mick is a sweet temptation. When ever you put him on the screen, you want/need more. Hard to stop at one episode. Unfortunately for me, I´m constantly hunting material for gifs, so I hardly watch entire episodes through. But so strong is Mick´s lure, that I keep missing to capture the scenes I´m after. I keep getting pulled into the stories, every time. Alex got to show us his versatile sides in every ML episode, there was humor with the serious and action stuff. There´s no other vampire, so touching…
Our stories are more or less the same … Well, it actually looks like I wrote your comment. 😆
Hope you enjoy him here with us…..helps with the withdrawal!!
