Tonight, the newest episode of Resident Alien
premiered on Syfy. The comedy series follows an alien (Alan Tudyk), who crash lands on earth and kills Harry Vanderspeigle, who is hired as the interim town doctor after the original is murdered. Taking his place, Harry poses as human until he can find his ship and equipment and destroy the Earth. Along the way, Harry ingratiates himself with the people of the small town in Patience, Colorado and starts to learn what it’s like to be human.
Corey Reynolds stars as Sheriff Mike Thompson. He is a no-nonsense sheriff, who, along with his deputy, Liv Baker (Elizabeth Bowen), has spent the season trying to find out who killed the original town doctor.
Yesterday, Reynolds talked to journalists during a junket about working on the series, what’s coming for his character, and more.
Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.
Reynolds talked to SciFi Vision about a scene from tonight’s episode, where Sheriff Mike came to Deputy Liv during karaoke and sang to her, trying to make up for how horribly he treated her and for not giving her credit for finding the doctor’s murderer.
“Chris [Sheridan] was really good at utilizing our talents, if you have any special abilities, similar with [my] beatboxing. He knew that I have a musical history. He had talked about, early on, wanting to get singing somehow plugged into the season. We didn't know exactly how it was going to go at the time.
