PSYCH – BALLROOM 20

Ballroom 20 remained a hubbub of activity as the cast panel for yet another show from USA Network is ready to begin. The cast of ‘PSYCH!”

The Cast is…

Andy Berman … Moderator

Corbin Bernson … Henry Spencer

Kirsten Nelson … Karen Vick

Maggie Lawson … Juliet O’Hara

Tim Omundson … Carlton Lassiter

Kelly Kolchak … Executive Producer

Chris Henz …. Executive producter

Steve Franks … Creator

The show’s tag line: “Fake Psychic, Real Detectives.”

Prior to the cast members of each show taking the stage, each show had a video presentation. They were entertaining, funny, clever, giving the crowd a sneak peek into what was ahead! “Psych” featured Curt Smith of the band “Tears For Fear”, the guys decide to impress him by singing “Shout” and changing the lyrics from “Come on” to “Comic Con” at which Curt Smith pulls out his cell phone and makes a call to his lawyer. The audience roared with laughter, then suddenly and not expectedly …the stage lights came on and an acoustic guitar began to play….Curt cames out singing “Shout” and was joined by his video cohorts! We all cheered and sang along! What an amazing entrance.

Recovering, the panel was assembled and the questioning began in earnest. Chris talked about the cool guest stars for season five (5) would include such names as Adam Rodriguez, William Devane, Nestor Carbonell (Richard Albert “Lost”), and C. Thomas Howell.

Corbin Bernson’s imdb (internet movie database) list is taller than Andy Berman’s, so Corbin claims! Corbin says “When you’re working as an actor, you must do this… never wear underwear when you work.”

Steve Franks talked about what he learned about the role of writer verses director. Franks’ “Realize how expensive long hours taught me about writing, than all the classes I’ve ever taken.” He also reflected on the difference on being in the writing room in Manhattan Beach, and being a director onset in Vancouver (Canada).

The USA Network made its move to High Definition (H.D.) format for the series. It changed the look of the show. This definitely had an effect on the production them to step-it-up-a-notch.

A “Psych” movie is talked about every year, the cast and crew confessed.

One of Steve Frank’s memorable jobs was at Disneyland. Assigned to the Enchanted Tiki Room! The famous room where the birds and flowers that sang and entertained. Frank’s said that each day, he had the privilege of waking up Jose!

The time past quickly, and the panel answered their last questions and bid us goodbye!

Thank you!
