Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of Star Trek geeks who might not have gotten a life when William Shatner told them to but who would have bathed and even used soap if Jeri Ryan had asked… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
Jeri Ryan, Dana Delany in ‘Body of Proof’ on ABC
By BOB ANDELMAN
Dear listener, this interview is so not about you.
I’ve got the next ten minutes to talk – flirt – with Jeri Ryan. Put yourself in my shoes – don’t – who would you be thinking about? Me or you? – Me. –
Jeri Ryan was sent to us from the stars – okay the Borg – 15 years ago. But that first sight of the former Miss Illinois in a skintight suit is as fresh today as it was the moment she first entered the bridge of “Star Trek Voyager.” As George “Sulu” Takei might say, “Oh, my.”
Jeri Ryan as ‘Seven of Nine’
This Northwestern grad’s presence gave a franchise that was teetering many more years on the outer edges of the universe – well, somewhere. I never quite grasped that part. And ever since then, TV producers everywhere have turned to her for a little Jeri Ryan magic. Voyager’s engines were barely cold before she joined “Boston Public” for three seasons. She co-starred opposite James Woods on “Shark” and even did a couple episodes of “Two and a Half Men” with Charlie Sheen
Winning! – indeed.
Now this stunning woman and skilled actress is co-starring as Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kate Murphy opposite Dana Delany on the new ABC series “Body of Proof,” which airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. She’s also signed on to reprise her role as Lieutenant Sonya Blade short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth to appear in the just released digital new media series Mortal Kombat— an anthology of multiple live action shorts available online.
JERI RYAN audio excerpt: “It’s kind of cool (being Star Trek‘s Seven of Nine). But being in Mortal Kombat is infinitely more cool. It ups my cred with my teenage sons friends about ten-fold.”
