Tuesday night features the Christmas episodes for Eureka and Warehouse 13 on Syfy, at 9/8c & 10/9c respectively. I got the chance a few days ago to speak to stars Eddie McClintock (Pete) and Saul Rubinek (Artie), and honestly, it was the most fun I’ve ever had on a call. They were genuinely nice and absolutely funny guys, and you could tell they were comfortable with each other and with speaking to the press.
In this ‘long lost’ holiday episode of Warehouse 13, as the Warehouse team prepares to celebrate the holidays in snowy South Dakota, Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) are called upon to hunt down a malevolent Santa Claus. Meanwhile, in time for Hanukkah, Artie and his estranged father, Isadore Weisfelt reunite after 30 years. Award-winning actor Judd Hirsch guest stars as Artie’s father. Paul Blackthorne also guest stars as a harried workaholic who becomes terrorized by a strange series of robberies committed by a thief dressed as “jolly old Saint Nick!”
Right before the questions started, they had a little silly conversation back and forth.
Saul Rubinek: They have to register a question.
Eddie McClintock: I’ve got a question, Eddie why would you go to Bulgaria to do a movie called The Boogeyman?
Saul Rubinek: Because it would be fun and you have a family to support.
Eddie McClintock: Answer, because it’s awesome. No it is fun man, I’m having a blast.
Saul Rubinek: Cool.
