Craig Byrne interviewed Arthur Darvill, television's Rip Hunter, about his take on the character. Naturally, Booster Gold came up.
Byrne: On the show, do we have a sense or any clues as to who Rip Hunter's parents are?
Darvill: I don't know how far they've planned. I've obviously read the comics and know the deal of who his parents are and all of that. As with all of these shows, I don't know how true they're going to stick to it or if they're gonna bring that in later on or anything. Hopefully we've got a long time to go on the show.
Byrne: A lot of actors we’ve talked to who are playing beloved comic book characters sometimes say, "Oh, I don't want to read the comic books because I want to put my own spin on it." But you’re a fan of the comics. Do you think that’s brought something special to the role?
Darvill: Oh, totally. I'm obviously going to put my own spin on it cause that's my job and that's what I enjoy doing. I get the idea of not looking at it, but I think for me, Rip's been depicted in such different ways through the history of the comics — and actually none of them are close to how I'm playing him.
My key into him was reading the Vanishing Point comic, which I like. It made me realize I can make him stronger than I thought he was. He has that kind of action-adventure thing and he can be a leader, which I'm really interested in. I like the way he’s got Superman and Booster Gold there to contend with, yet he totally leads the way. I think that shows he can stand up for himself.
(And if you're so inclined, you can leave your comments about what you think of the show in the Boosterrific Forum.)

The time-traveling "Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm" has been cast for the Arrow/Flash spin-off on the CW. News broke yesterday that Arthur Darvill (known to all time-travel fans as Rory on Doctor Who) will be playing Rip Hunter.
Whether this news makes you happy or sad that it won't be Booster Gold in the upcoming series, you have to admit that The Boy Who Waited is imminently qualified for the part (assuming he can speak in an American accent).

For the occasion of tonight's Arrow season finale, Executive Producer of Arrow Andrew Kreisberg, who also happens to be the man behind the attempt to turn Booster Gold into a television show on the SyFy network, was interviewed by Craig Byrne of GreenArrowTv.com. There's a bit of that interview very important to Booster Gold fans:
GreenArrowTv.com: So there's no chance the two shows [Arrow, Booster Gold] could exist in the same universe?
Kreisberg: There's always a possibility. There's a line in the Booster Gold pilot [script] where somebody says "we finally have our own hero. Not like that nut in Starling City with the hood." I don't know if they're going to let me keep that line over there, if they [Syfy] actually make the pilot, but it sort of makes me smile to think that it's the same universe.
Did you catch it? Here, let me emphasize the important part.
"...if they [SyFy] actually make the pilot...."
That's the man making the show admitting that he has no idea whether SyFy is still working on his show over a year after SyFy announced it. Draw your own conclusions about that.
