Newsletter schedule change
Library update
Dwight Schultz chat transcript

NEWSLETTER SCHEDULE CHANGE: This past year it's become increasingly difficult to keep up with the biweekly schedule for the newsletters, *and* keep up the content to a level I'm happy with, so I've decided that starting with this issue we will be going on a *monthly* schedule instead. I hope this is not a inconvenience, but right now it's the only way I can fit putting together the newsletter into my schedule.

Of course, remember that I would always love to receive more contributions from our subscribers for the newsletters. It could be a simple review of a movie you saw that featured one of our guys, an old article you stumbled across, whatever you might like to write about. Perhaps you were a fan of another Cannell or Lupo show, and would like to write an introductory article about it? There are a lot of possibilities.

LIBRARY UPDATE: One of our library sponsors has been making arrangements to pick up the entire collection in person sometime next month, at which point it will be delivered to Robin so we can begin filling the backlogged requests. Once things settle down, we'll open the library for new requests. I'm hoping this summer we could expand the collect as well to perhaps include videotapes of interest to Team fans--some of those hard-to-find TV movies and guest appearances our guys & girls have appeared in, that sort of thing. But I won't go into these ideas any further until we know the fanzines are in good condition and everything with that is settled.

Thanks for your continued patience in this matter.
Well, it's that time when I start cleaning out my apartment and trying to unload a lot of...stuff...that I've acquired in recent months. For anyone who hasn't participated before, here are my rules of bidding:

* A bid must stand for 3 days unchallenged for the item to be sold.
* Minimum bid increase is $1 for items under $10, $2 for items over $10.

The other weekend Dwight was at the Creation Sci-Fi convention in Pasadena and participated in this short on-line chat. The following transcription was taken from the Sci-Fi Channel website at

Dwight Schultz
Star Trek: The Next Generation's Lieutenant Barclay

Moderator: We will now go moderated.

Alpha2: hi dwight

Moderator: Can you hear us, Dwight?

DwightSchultz: Yes, I can hear you.

Moderator: Great! Lets begin
Moderator: Welcome! Please introduce yourself to the crowd.

DwightSchultz: I'm Dwight Schultz, an unemployed actor in Los Angeles...does anybody have a job for me? * DwightSchultz laughs *
DwightSchultz: No job, okay. On to the next question?

Moderator: to : What is it like playing such a shy character?

DwightSchultz: That is very much the way I am. In fact, Barclay is about to me as any character that I've ever played. DwightSchultz: It was also a very well written part, which helps.

Moderator: to : will barcklay be appearing in the next TNG movie?

DwightSchultz: I would say no, or i would have heard by now...

Moderator: to : what was your favorite episode? I personally enjoy the one where you become a "genius" and control the ship from the holodeck..
DwightSchultz: in fact...I wouldn't have appeared in the first one if it had not been for Jonathan Frakes. The character was just a leiutenant and Jonathan thought it would be a great idea for that leuitenant to be Barclay.
DwightSchultz: Mine too. That was my favorite episode too.
DwightSchultz: I particularly enjoyed playing Cyrano badly.

Moderator: to : Hi Dwight; did you enjoy guest starring on Voyager and the scenes you did with Robert Picardo?

DwightSchultz: Yes, again, very much.
DwightSchultz: Bob and I had many friends in common from New York City
and spent a lot of time telling theater stories.
DwightSchultz: He's wonderful.

Moderator: to : Was it fun working on the A-Team with George Peppard, Mr. T., and Dirk Benedict?

DwightSchultz: Yes, it was one of the great experiences of my life. It changes my life. DwightSchultz: (changed)
DwightSchultz: In fact, I can truthfully say I would not have done Barclay had it not been for The A-Team.
DwightSchultz: That show was very much a family show for the first three years, on and off screen. I learned a great deal about the camera and about the demands of film and television. DwightSchultz: And, of course, I met every stunt man in Hollywood. And they're fabulous people.

Moderator: to : Do you have any plans to do more of the Alien Voices productions (w/ Nimoy & deLancie) similar to your last HG Wells, "First Men in the Moon" performance?

DwightSchultz: Yes. I've already done "The Invisible Man".
DwightSchultz: Just a small part. We will be doing "Lost World" in July.

Moderator: to : I remember you being on an episode of Babylon 5 a few years ago. Have you been a fan of the show, or did you just take the part as it came?

DwightSchultz: i was a big fan of that show. I am a Sci-Fi addict.
DwightSchultz: I grew up on it and see everything that there is.
DwightSchultz: Babylon is very dark and non-perfect Sci-Fi. Quite the opposite of Star Trek.
DwightSchultz: By non-perfect I mean real people with imperfections...a study of how things are, as opposed to the ideal.

Moderator: to : Have you heard anything about the rumored A-Team movie?

DwightSchultz: Only that the first script has been shoved aside, and at this moment there are no plans for another.
DwightSchultz: I'm sure i'm wrong.
DwightSchultz: I'll be the last one to know about the movie.

Moderator: to : If the A-Team movie becomes a realization, will you be resuming the role of Murdock? I can't see the A-Team without him (or you)...

DwightSchultz: Murdock will be there, but I am positive it won't be with me. They'll use a modern star.

Moderator: to : Hi Dwight. I sent the hand-spun cap for your birthday. What was the funniest thing that happened while you were filming the Star Trek episodes?

DwightSchultz: Thanks for the hat. The funniest thing that happened to me, was when Jonanthan Frakes grabbed my inner thigh during a close-up. DwightSchultz: My expression was quite extraordinary. It took me quite a long time to regain my composure.

Moderator: to : dwight, how long have you been acting??

DwightSchultz: Thirty one years. A long time, huh?

Moderator: to : Does it bother you that most the characters you play, at least the way I see it, are either a little mental or extremely shy?

DwightSchultz: Actually...most of the characters I play are very straight. You just don't seen them...or recognize me. DwightSchultz: Too many daddies...doctors...and lawyers make me dull. DwightSchultz: I love mental disturabances. They are always indicative of the best characters to play.
DwightSchultz: Do you think Richard III had a few problems?

Moderator: Thank you for taking the time to chat with us! Any final thoughts?

DwightSchultz: This is really my very first on-line chat...I've enjoyed it very much. I hope I've answered all your questions.
DwightSchultz: And how many of you will be looking at the NASA web site for the "Face on Mars" pictures on monday?

I think the most interesting tidbit out of this was the info that the A-Team movie has likely been "scrapped" at this point in time. This isn't really surprising, considering how terrible the first draft of the script was, and the fact that Cannell seems more interested today in projects related to his more recent novels.

Hannibal fans can now visit P.L.A.N. headquarters at http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Academy/5914 for photos and information on P.L.A.N. members.

Sears (currently a co-executive producer on Xena, who co-wrote several A-Team scripts and was involved in other Cannell projects such as "Riptide"), visit http://www.universalstudios.com/unichat.30/newchat/transcripts/stevensears.html
