“Altered Perception is about the governments attempt to produce a designer drug aimed at correcting the false perceptions people develop throughout their lives during times of trouble, trauma and stress. The implications could be far reaching. From helping abuse victims readjust, to solving geopolitical problems that result from prejudices formed by status, class and religions. But first the clinical trials must prove that medicine is effective. The lives of four couples, their past and present, will be examined while taking variations of the new drug. The process, however, may cause some to doubt their own memory, perceptions and sanity.”

Blanc-Biehn Productions has been churning out film after film lately with THE NIGHT VISITOR, THE GIRL and the HIDDEN IN THE WOODS remake all being covered by AITH over the past few months, and now the production company has another intriguing project in the works with ALTERED PERCEPTION and today we have some interesting casting news to share with ya below!
“Caste” star Jon Huertas has signed on to join the cast of ALTERED PERCEPTION, joining a previously announced cast that includes Jennifer Blanc, Hallie Jordan (pictured below), Jade Tailor, Emrhys Cooper, Matthew Ziff, Nichola Fynn, Mark Burnham, Christine Kapetan, Jenise Blanc, Aileen Burdock and Larry Wade Carrell.
Altered Perception is about the governments attempt to produce a designer drug aimed at correcting the false perceptions people develop throughout their lives during times of trouble, trauma and stress. The implications could be far reaching. From helping abuse victims readjust, to solving geopolitical problems that result from prejudices formed by status, class and religions. But first the clinical trials must prove that medicine is effective. The lives of four couples, their past and present, will be examined while taking variations of the new the drug. The process, however, may cause some to doubt their own memory, perceptions and sanity.
ALTERED PERCEPTION will be helmed by Kate Rees Davies.
Producer Michael Biehn says of Huertas involvement…
“I have done two films with John. He is an amazing talent and we are very lucky and honoured to have him working on this film.”
But what about the other romance? You know, the completely platonic, bromantic one between Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Ryan (Seamus Dever)? Will they go through any more rough patches this season — like they did at the beginning of Season 5, after Ryan snitched on Espo and Beckett to Gates (Penny Johnson) — or is everything good in the Season 6 hood?
“From what we’ve filmed so far, it’s pretty smooth sailing,” Huertas reveals to TV Guide Canada. “There’s always going to be difference[s] between Ryan and Esposito. There’s a huge personality difference between the two, and that’s what, I think, makes for a lot of the funny bits. Each character’s view of what the other character does in a certain situation is always interesting, so that’s always going to be there.”
“But as far as being partners, we’re definitely loyal partners this season. I don’t think [that's going to change]. I don’t get the scripts too far ahead of time, [but] so far what we’ve shot, we’re good to go. We’re still partners for life … ‘TIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF!”
Sadly, outside of Ryan awkwardly lamenting their unproduced offspring — ”I just always thought that you and I would have kids together” — we haven’t heard much of the dynamic duo’s trademark witty banter this season, nor seen them very much onscreen. Fortunately, that’s all set to change in Sunday’s episode (“Need to Know”), which sees Beckett return to the 12th with her new fed buddies and attempt to muscle in on a case Castle, Espo and Ryan are working on. Huertas points to the episode as one of his favourites of the still-shooting season, as it contains one particular conversation scene in which he and the precinct boys bring “a lot of comedy,” something he likes to do whenever possible, and excels at — no surprise, given he once starred on The Joe Schmo Show.
The wait is finally over.
For the past four months and change, ever since Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) got down on bended knee and proposed to his beloved Katherine Houghton Beckett (Stana Katic) in the Season 5 finale of Castle, we’ve been frozen in a perpetual stasis of discomfort, teetering so far off the edge of our seats only a sliver of buttock remains, as we tirelessly fret over how Beckett will respond to the bestseller’s big romantic gesture.
Will she say yes, or no? Will she stay homicide in New York, or go fed in D.C.? We’ll get those answers Sunday — a full day ahead of our neighbours to the south (take that, Canada’s trousers!) — in the Season 6 starter, “Valkyrie.”
But being the impatient, incessant little gnats we are, we decided to grill Beckett’s most-trusted compatriot, Javier Esposito, or rather, his affable portrayer Jon Huertas, on the matter, and find out which Espo would choose — love or the job — if he were in Beckett’s shoes.
“The job,” Huertas tells TV Guide Canada without hesitation. “[Espo] definitely supports Beckett and her move to D.C., because Beckett’s been a cop a lot longer than she’s known Castle.
“I think in life you have your love for another human being, but you also have a love for your career,” he continues. “She loves her job, and loves working in the name of justice just as much as she loves Richard Castle. This proclamation of love and commitment is pretty new [for her], so I think she would choose the job, and if she trusts the love and … the love is strong enough, the distance [between NYC and D.C.] should be able to be overcome.”
