Hold onto your brightly-colored wigs, Alias fans! The reunion on your dreams took place at the Vanity Fair Oscars party: Victor Garber, Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams together again! And a Whoopi Goldberg photobomb! Yes, that's Whoopi, not Oprah Winfrey. Garber's husband Rainer Andreesen snapped the shot.
What do you think they talked about? An Alias revival? An Alias movie? What Sydney Bristow is up to today? How they could bring Jack (Garber) back from the dead for said revival? Why now is a perfect time for more Alias due to Garner's big comeback? Alias ran for five seasons on ABC from 2001-2006. Abrams created the spy drama.
Garber posted the above photo the morning after the Oscars with this simple caption: "Jack and Sidney. Together again."
"I don't remember having more fun working with anyone than I've had working with her," Abrams told Vanity Fair about Garner and Alias. "She's smart-funny—she makes you want to be funnier and smarter, and you know that when you throw the best you've got her way she'll make it better. No one's perfect. But no one's Jen Garner."
Garber and Garner met working on the show and remain close. Garber is the godfather to Garner's daughter Violet. "From the first moment we met," Garber told VF, "there was this inexplicable chemistry and connection, this understanding that we were on the same page. She's one of the most important people in my life."
Now if you'll excuse us, we'll be further developing more Alias revival concepts.
