First Look, Listen: Trent Reznor Featured in Fringe Promo

at . Comments

This is very cool.

While a new Fringe episode won't air until November 5, the show premieres a new promo spot tonight... featuring Nine Inch Nails singer Trent Reznor!

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, the drama approached Reznor and asked him about using the song "Zero-Sum" in a commercial for the series. He did them one better:

Reznor recites lines of dialogue by William Bell during the ad, a favor he did for free.

“We offered him compensation, and he said, ‘No, no, I just want to have fun and be part of something cool,’” said producer Jeff Pinkner. “How often do you get the chance to work with somebody like that?”

Not often. Follow this article's jump for an early look at the promo.

Fringe Quotes

Peter: Hello. Walter is that you? I can hear you breathing.
Janitor: Is this Peter Bishop?
Peter: Yes.
Janitor: I'm calling from NY. I know this is going to sound crazy but I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes.
Peter: Who is this?
Janitor: Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you; she's trapped in the other universe

You, Olivia, have the ability to bend things with your mind. That's what you're doing in this drawing, if you look at it the right way.
