Undercover With Jennifer Garner
January 5, 2005
of fans have anxiously awaited the return of "Alias,"
and Wednesday night, the world can finally welcome back
Sydney Bristow. So what can we expect? "Extra"
sat down with Jennifer Garner and her co-stars to get
"I go from screaming in Chinese, to speaking Swedish,
to you know, being blonde, having black hair, having
blond hair," Jen told us.
And that's just the first episode, as Garner and her
"Alias" crew go back to saving the world.
"It's so wild, I can't even remember anything that
happened," Garner admitted.
And Jen's co-star Victor Garber wasn't sharing any secrets
either: "Have I been shot this year? Must have
been. I strangled someone the other day; that was good."
We do know that the season premiere will pick up where
last season left off. Michael Vartan's character is
working through some issues. "Last year we left
off with me shooting my wife," Michael recalled.
And Sydney Bristow is still battling the forces of evil
and her feelings for a former flame. We did learn, however,
that guest star Angela Bassett will make for an interesting
twist this season, as she orders a transfer for our
favorite superspy, sending Sydney to÷ the mailroom?
Meanwhile, if you think she's tough in "Alias,"
you'll want to see Garner kick butt in her new movie,
"Elektra," which opens next week. And Jen
admitted she could use some of her ninja skills to make
sure things go her way on the set. "I could try
a little more ka-pow! at work," she laughed. "I'm
going to see how that goes over."
In the meantime, be sure to catch the "ka-pow"
two-hour season premiere of "Alias," Wednesday
night on ABC.
