Rod Serling Makes A Comeback On ‘Medium’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rod Serling has been dead for 30 years but that isn’t stopping the former Twilight Zone host from making guest appearances.

Serling will be making a cameo appearance on the 3-D episode of Medium airing Monday (Nov. 21) on NBC to instruct the audience when to put on the special 3-D glasses.

Medium producer Glenn Gordon Caron says he originally wanted Tim Burton to do the intro but felt using Serling would be more appropriate since Patricia Arquette’s character talks with the dead.

Producers reanimated 45 seconds of Serling from an old Twilight Zone episode and even help him become 3-D during the sequence.

While Caron was happy to use Serling, he jokes that as a performer, “he’s a bit stiff.”
