Swedish article re PG's new miniseries job:
" "CSI"-stjärna i svensk tv-serie

Paul Guilfoyle, som i 14 år spelade polisen Jim Brass i amerikanska tv-serien "CSI", var i Stockholm i veckan. Han besökte Sverige för att vara med i uppföljningen till serien "En pilgrims död", enligt Aftonbladet.

— Jag hade precis blivit tillgänglig efter att ha lämnat "CSI". Det här manuset kom en vecka senare. Det är trevligt att gå rakt in i nytt arbete, säger Guilfoyle till Aftonbladet.

Serien "En annan tid, ett annat liv" baseras precis som föregångaren på en roman av Leif G W Persson och sänds på SVT i vinter. Paul Guilfoyle gör ett kortare inhopp som CIA-agent."


What I got from imtranslator was this:
Translated

Quote:
'' CSI ' star in the Swedish tv series Paul Guilfoyle, who for 14 years was playing police Jim Brass in the American tv series ' CSI ', was in Stockholm this week. He visited Sweden to participate in the follow-up to the series ' A pilgrims dead ', according to Aftonbladet. — I had just become available after leaving the ' CSI '. This script came a week later. It's nice to go straight into the new job, "said Guilfoyle to Aftonbladet. The series ' another time, another life ' is based, just like its predecessor on the novel by Leif G W Persson and broadcast on SVT in winter. Paul Guilfoyle makes a brief cameo appearance as a CIA agent. "


So, now you now what I know. Anyone speak Swedish with a better translation?

That's a great find, GMW! Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like much of a role for Paul. I also wonder if this is only available in Sweden.

Here's the synopsis from IMDB of "Another Time, Another Life"
Quote:
The year is 1975, and the West German embassy in Stockholm is occupied by German terrorists. It's an attack not only on the embassy, but on Sweden's long-standing pride as a peaceful nation. In the aftermath of the violent occupation, the Swedish Security Police suspects the six terrorists had help from the outside, possibly from a group of Swedish sympathizers. But no leads can be found until fourteen years later.

Sounds pretty cool. Too bad he's only mentioned for a cameo though.

I really hope he gets picked up for a recurring role on something. I'm going to miss not having him on my TV screen every week or so.

You know how he likes to travel -- great opportunity to do so and I wonder if he has to say his lines in Swedish? He'd dig that, too.
Lucky guy!

Note they also state in the interview that PG dropped out of CSI specifically? for this role.
A little national fingernail polishing here.

In that first photo, his expression reminds me of the early Brass photos. Lawdy, does he look good! :o

You're right, SH, he has the right colors on and thanks, GMW for the great pics!

Here's another article in the Swedish news. Apologies for the bad translation. I don't like the part where he says he doesn't have to work. I mean, I do because it's good for him but I don't because it's bad for us.

Quote:
The veteran jumps of CSI after 317 episodes
Therefore jumps Paul Guilfoyle of TV success


After 317 episodes, he had enough.
Now thank "CSI"-legendary Paul Guilfoyle separately.
- I think the evidence is won over to acting to end, he says to Aftonbladet.

FACTS
Name: Paul Guilfoyle.
Age: 65.
Occupation: Actor.
Family: Wife and children.
Lives: Tribeca in New York.
Background: Best known for his role as Jim Brass in "CSI" as he has done since the series started in 2000 and recently dropped out. Has also appeared in films such as "Air Force One", "LA Confidential" and "Hoffa".
Current: Guilfoyles last episode of "CSI" broadcast on Monday 16 June at Channel 5th Makes a role in the sequel to "A pilgrim's death." The new mini-series, "Another Time, Another Life" based on Leif GW Persson's novel, broadcast on SVT this winter.

Now take Paul Guilfoyle , 65, said goodbye to "CSI."
After 14 years and 317 episodes of detective series veteran decided to jump on the role of Lieutenant Jim Brass.
Instead, he flew last week to Sweden to participate in SVT's sequel to "A pilgrim's death."
- Until now I have most of the time been indisposed. But I just became available because I left the TV series, said Guilfoyle.

"Small Cool"
When Nöjesbladet hits him, he has been in Stockholm for a few days and take the opportunity to compare the "CSI" with Vasa Ship.
- I do not think that kind of long-runner with lots of episodes will be much longer. They are too big, almost like the Vasa Ship. They are built so large that they do not sail so deftly. They have lots of weapons and seem powerful, but to sail them now in the kava water that is television which is concentrating more on character-driven, I think it will go the other way.

Are you saying that you left a sinking ship?
- No, no, I did a very thorough and well-functioning vessels. A great team. But it is a commercial team. And when a ship gets bigger and bigger so will the need for actors to actually act on them less and less interesting.

"Do not worry about the bills"
Paul Guilfoyle describes how the lack of acting led him to eventually drop out of the hit series.
- I have tried to find ways. Looking at such a crystal, an object that has evidence of their words, and trying but frankly, it's very difficult to act in relation to a glass. But I have been trying for many years and many times also managed to build a character in relation to the evidence. But I think the glass is finally won. So I decided that it was time to sail away before it began to sink too deep into the water, a bit like the Vasa Ship.

But a role in a Swedish drama teaches well not directly pay your bills?
- I do not exactly have to worry about my bills, he says.
- I do not do things for financial reasons. I've done it once in my so called career and I did it successfully. I made the right choice when it came to anything to hook my financial situation. It has taken care of both me and others.

Knowing what we know about Paul, my guess is that he will be looking for the meaty roles that he can sink his teeth into. It won't be about the money, it will be what he can do with the character. I also would hazard to guess that at least for awhile his roles will be very un-Brass like. I also look for him to try to find things closer to home to be nearer his family. He seems to love doting on his very talented daughter and I sense he wants time to relish her and her accomplishments before she fully leaves the nest.

He made a nice chunck of money on CSI and apparently invested a lot of it, so I think he is sincere in his comments about the pay. We know he never really worried too much about the money before Snow came along. He really means it when he says it is about the authenticity of the role. He has taken care of his family and now I look for him to nuture his creativity.
