TV/VIDEO: Milo Ventimiglia's "Ultradome"

Milo Ventimiglia ("Heroes") is starring in and co-producing "Ultradome," a new scripted Web series where "passionate fanboys settle hypothetical disputes in a special effects showdown. 'My whole life has been spent engaged with friends in intellectual debate ... like whether Captain Kirk is tougher than Spock or if Middle Earth is a more difficult place to live than Tatooine,' Ventimiglia said. 'With "Ultradome," we can bring these debates to the public and settle them in the most logical way possible: through armed combat.' ... In each three- to five-minute episode, two characters engage in a heated geek-culture debate -- 'Who's tougher, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, or Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones?' -- then are transported to a stadium where the duo engage in single combat using all the weaponry, skills and pop culture touchstones from their respective hero's creative arsenal. ... Ventimiglia said he and partner Russ Cundiff came up with the idea after putting a couple mock lightsaber battles online and envisioning how Luke Skywalker would slice and dice Mr. Spock. The actor will appear in the first episode, which pits Star Wars vs. The Lord of the Rings. Ventimiglia will be backing LOTR, but only because his co-star pleaded to represent for Star Wars." So basically, Ventimiglia will prove, once and for all, that he's a total dork.

Watch him make an ass out of himself here:

Oh and just to be clear, I WILL be watching that web series.
