Actor Bruce Boxleitner has been in everything from TRON to Babylon 5 (John Sheridan). Film Channel Editor William Bibbiani recently interviewed Boxleitner for Crave Online, and asked him how he would feel about a possible remake of Babylon 5. Boxleitner answered:
I in fact saw Joe Straczynski not too long ago and we talked about that.
You know what I would say? It would be as far-fetched to me now as when they said “We’re going to do TR0N again.” I said, “Why?!” [Laughs] “Why?” But you know what? I was the most surprised. I got the call from Sean Bailey and Joe Kosinski, the director and the executive producer, would I do this? I said absolutely.
So if Babylon 5 comes along again, you never know. I’d be a fool to say no, but I’m just going to say look… It’ll be a total surprise to me. Maybe I’ll relive my whole career over in sort of a Groundhog Day thing. [Laughs] But you know what? That’s okay. That’s okay.
