DONALD FAISON MAKES A GUEST APPEARANCE ON TOMORROW NIGHT’S ALL-NEW EPISODE OF SYFY’S NEW COMPETITION SERIES JIM HENSON’S CREATURE SHOP CHALLENGE
NEW YORK – April 14, 2014 – Donald Faison (Scrubs) makes a special guest appearance on tomorrow night’s all-new episode of Syfy’s critically-acclaimed Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge, Tuesday, April 15 at 10PM ET/PT. In the episode, the seven remaining creature designers create fantastical creatures that have been slain and mounted on the wall of a wizard’s castle. To further bring humor and life to their creations, the designers must write a script to tell the darkly comic tale of how their creature died and how it feels about being mounted to the wall in the wizard’s enchanted trophy room.
The creature designers must incorporate one element of mechanization and, with only three days to manifest an enchanted trophy head, figuring out eye mechanization proves a major challenge for several designers. The workshop is abuzz with painting, furring, and accessorizing until the very last moment. When the time comes to present creatures at the screen test before judges Brian Henson, Kirk Thatcher and Beth Hathaway, the trophy heads come to life and engage in hilarious repartee with the wizard, played by special guest Faison.
The seven creature designers still in the competition are: Russ Adams of Ogden, UT; Ben Bayouth of Woodland Hills, CA; Robert Bennett of Orlando, FL; Jake Corrick of Belle Vernon, PA; Melissa Doss of Big Bear, CA; Ivonne Escoto of Los Angeles, CA and Lex Rudd of Guerneville, CA.
