SAW 2 Chat October 12th: Franky G

Hey All, Lee Here with a friendly chat reminder, click on the image to go to the horror channel site and be apart of the chat I was apart of!

Miracle workers we are. Diabolical serial killers with a penchant for morality mind games and elaborate puzzles we most certainly are not. So, to herald the arrival of Lions Gate Films and Twisted Pictures’ Saw II - the follow-up to last Halloween's horror hit - what we are not going to do is choose some random reader and put him or her in a foreign environment with some creepy-ass puppet while we watch with satisfaction their plight on a webcam feed.

Although I’m sure some of you sick screws would like that, wouldn't ya?

The legal ramifications would be a tad bothersome, and we’d like to avoid that. What we are going to do, however, is host another wave of live chats with the sick minds behind the film and those who are unwillingly exposed to Jigsaw's latest scheme. Not familiar with the world of Saw and all this “Jigsaw” jive talkin' I'm doing? Here's a synopsis of the latest chapter, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, to catch you up to speed: "Jigsaw is back. The brilliant, disturbed mastermind who wreaked havoc on his victims in last year's SAW is back for another round of horrifying life-or-death games. When a new murder victim is discovered with all the signs of Jigsaw's hand, Detective Eric Mathews (Donnie Wahlberg) begins a full investigation and apprehends Jigsaw with little effort. But for Jigsaw, getting caught is just another part of his nefarious plan. Eight more of his victims are already fighting for their lives - and now it's time for Mathews to join the game.".

Our fist chat, with director Darren Bousman and producer/co-writer Leigh Whannell, was a rousing success, we think. Keep your eyes open for a transcript of it soon-ish (we make no promises as to how soon, sorry). This Wednesday, you’ll get a chance to chat with Franky G, who plays the character Xavier in Saw II. Make sure you mark you calendar for October 12th, 9pm EST so you can show up on time!

We like our chats to begin in a timely fashion, so if you plan on participating, we suggest you get in early. Now, here's what the rest of the month looks like. Keep in mind that many of the actors involved are pretty damn busy these days. Last minute changes should not come as a surprise.

October 12th: Franky G
October 13th: Emmanuelle Vaugier
October 19th: Lyriq Bent
October 20th: Shawnee Smith
October 27th: Donnie Wahlberg
November 3rd: Tobin Bell

All chats will begin at the same time: 9pm Easterb/6pm Pacific unless any adjustments are made. Furthermore, each week we'll be selecting one participant (of the non-guest variety, of course) to win a special prize pack of Saw-related goodies. We'll announce the winner and any changes regarding the chats on this page, so check back regularly!

And don't forget to get your hands dirty at the Saw II official site here!
