Quantum Leap Cast Says Expect the Unexpected With Sequel | E! Insider
expect uh uh a fun ride where no two episodes will ever be the same uh because since no jump will ever be the same you can
expect a lot of fun adventures uh with a lot of fun costumes and a lot of fun time periods um how will it be similar to the jump original
quantum somehow? Do you think so, I think there are many similarities? someone so there's that similar line of like you're really walking a mile in someone else's shoes um the show will let you know it's just a good time comedy mixed with drama will definitely be repeated on the new show . um it's just a lot it's just a modern version of using what we have at our disposal in 2022 both technologically in the production of the show and in the history of the show um you know there have been advances in technology um and but the core me you know that the tenants are the same, that's the relationship between the jumper and the hologram and what the jumper has to do and how they navigate through the jump, but then, um excitingly, in this one we have headquarters and we have everything that's going on. deep down we weren't, they couldn't really do in the first one, which I think will make it a lot richer and a lot more exciting, that's what I was going to say, what's this going to be like? be unique you know deal yeah we got this whole other side yeah um you know um go ahead yeah I think in the original we had the two guys basically who were jumping off the shoulder we still had that on this one but now we see everything it takes to make that possible you know we certainly re-entered the
quantum machine huh ziggy but there's a lot of effort and that goes into the resources that go into making this happens and we meet that team and we realize it's part of the military or the pentagon, so there's a lot of other parts that are going on that weren't so obvious in the original series, but we also get to know those people. the original series where fans can say oh i remember that absolutely oh yeah absolutely those who are true fans uh will be pleasantly surprised this is um yeah this is very much an extension of the original show um what are the odds that scott vapoola will be back enjoy who knows yeah yeah we're excited yeah who knows yeah I'd love to see that happen I think we all will we all will yeah um can each of you spark a story what's excited? about your character individually that you love maybe a story that you loved filming or that you know you're proud of um there's an episode that takes place in space and i think um playing with ideas of surviving in the elements of space sounds uh it was very funny i try ing to navigate my way without giving away some major plot points but i will say the space was fun today sounds fun quote raymond lisa raymond um i think what is really exciting is more of a broader navigation for my character and what I'm really excited about is that it kind of echoes my own life a little bit when I was military intelligence and Addison um and there's an element of that where you know you're getting information that you're doing the best you can't I'm working very It's hard to help people who need this information to get it in a timely manner and provide as much support as possible, but you're really not the only one you know at the moment. moment in the fight in the league um and so she navigates this world where she has someone she cares about a lot in these dangerous situations and she's trying to win him back and also do her kind of guidance and help but she can't do it for they, can't, you know? throw yourself in front of the bus to make it real.
It's really fun to work on that as an actor. I haven't done that one bit in my own life. Yeah, I'm sure you can relate a bit. for my character, um, who has worked very hard on this project to see it come to fruition to see it happen and we're almost there and then our doctor decides to lead for some reason that we're not entirely sure about, but I think he's the real position for him is to realize that he has to depend on these people and that is very humiliating because he I think he feels that it is uh he is he is called magic because he is very uh intuitive but uh but suddenly he realizes from that um i i can't you just know how this is going to work and do i really have to trust these people? um and that's a really humbling experience but I think humanity is something that always worries me when you do a character um you get to see that part so it's not just being the boss of the boss or just this is what I do in this role, but it's you where everything and I think that manifests itself and that's very exciting to me, um, if each of you could take a
leap in something or one day or have that experience. okay um you know what i just thought about this now i would love to be the head chef of the best restaurant in the world um because i heard it's a very stressful job um and i got this idea i have to supervise something. i just want to know what it feels like to feel like gordon ramsay for a moment to have that kind of intensity about food, which i understand, it's not just about the food, it's about everything that surrounds the making of this food, but a thing i can understand is the obsession behind making something perfect and making something memorable to make everything the way it is and everyone parallels liking what we all do in terms of how we take pride in what we do but i want to know how feel that specifically related to food and my experience around food ok ok i would definitely say eleanor roosevelt or something because hey but what i loved about the original show is the kissing with the story. it was formed and I think it's something so unique that this show has that others can't do in such a broad way because you can't go to any time period, so that would be what I would like to do. most yeah I think he would be a fascinating person to go into yeah you know when I was a kid I fought gold and gloves and I thought I was pretty cool but then Muhammad Ali came along and he was beyond anyone . it was beyond good it was on another level and in so many ways and I think it would be an amazing guide to experience what yeah just to be here for a moment I mean it's my mind yeah yeah me um I thought that was pretty awesome and then I met him and I felt so diminished that wa Well I was a kid but there's a reason I don't do it anymore but he did and it wasn't just boxing but everything what it was.
I said I met him and yes I would love to. to jump on it for more
