SHOOT: Karl Urban & Minka Kelly Film TV Pilot ALMOST HUMAN in Vancouver’s Business District
J.J. Abrams and Fringe showrunner Joel Wyman’s TV pilot Almost Human (formerly Human) is filming in downtown Vancouver’s Business District on West Hastings Street, transformed into a futuristic Los Angeles, for the second day in a row this weekend. Stars Karl Urban (Star Trek’s Bones) and Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) are on set as Los Angeles police officers at the crime scene of yesterday’s armoured vehicle heist.
In the futuristic L.A. of Human, police officers are paired with numbered android partners. I didn’t recognize the actor playing Urban’s android partner today. Michael Ealy (Underworld Awakening) is expected to play an android cop, too.
During rehearsals and off camera the cast was much looser and quicker to smile, laugh and joke. The Almost Human set is a warm and friendly place.
