Joshua Jackson: I know how ‘Fringe’ ends
by Rick Porter
“Fringe” will have its biggest Comic-Con stage ever on Sunday (July 15) when the cast and producers greet fans in the San Diego Convention Center’s massive Hall H. And it’s likely just about all those fans will want to know about the show’s ending.
They can ask series star Joshua Jackson — because he says he knows where “Fringe’s” final season is headed.
“My show being what it is, I can’t tell you, but we have a really distinct … and very cool wrapping up of the entire series,” Jackson tells The Hollywood Reporter in a pre-Comic-Con roundtable with several other actors.
That’s something of a surprise, as in the past the “Fringe” powers that be tended to keep story details secret, even from the cast. Jackson says showrunner J.H. Wyman “has been kind of shockingly forthcoming, because our show is usually pretty impenetrable. But this is the last year, and I guess it’s a new leaf. He was like, ‘I want everybody engaged. I want everybody to know exactly what they’re doing.'”
Well, well, well, did you know that Joshua Jackson runs this show? That what he wants (for everybody to be “engaged…to know exactly what they’re doing”) is the key to the entire series? We’ll bet J.J. Abrams didn’t know it either.
God, we wish we knew how to write fluff.
Or even read it.
EDITED TO ADD: Anna Torv knows how it ends too, which leads us to believe that all the stars do. Probably because the writing-producing staff wants them to be “engaged.” Read Anna Torv’s interview
