Seth Green ready to Delete

Green

Seth Green is ready to Delete.

The actor, who is best known for being an Emmy nominee for Robot Chicken and Scott Evil in the Austin Powers films, has joined Deletea miniseries about a disaster in the digital world, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The four-hour miniseries is being written by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, who worked on Stargate SG-1. It will explore what happens when the World Wide Web becomes self-aware (bad) with one systematic purpose - the destruction of mankind (really bad). The only way out is to create a second artificial intelligence that is also alive, dangerous and intelligent (also bad).

Green is scheduled to play Lucifer (not the devil, it appears), the head of a secret online community (probably one of the top guilds in World of Warcraft).

"Lucifer is a hacker activist, a cross between Gene Hackman in Enemy of the State and Julian Assange," said Green. "He's distrustful of the government and an advocate for humanity who saw the AI coming and tried to stop it early on."

Also cast are Keir Gilchrist, Matt Frewer, Janet Kidder, Erin Karpluk, Gil Bellows and Ryan Robbins. Steve Barron is scheduled to direct. No network is currently attached to the project.

Does this sound really lame to anyone else?

So much great people. And if it sounds lame, smart people (credible scientists) already argue that internet in it's entirety eventually (maybe even already) form some kind of intelligence. The key thing is, it will not be human like. Like you can't communicate with hive of bees or ant colony, but as colony they have intelligence too alien to fully understand by human. Only in this case you can't even observe distributed massively-parallel network forming intelligence.

Yeah, I'd say it sounds lame. Then again, maybe we're not the intended audience.
