Reiko Aylesworth, Gail O'Grady
If you seek Lost's Amy beyond this spring (or beyond the 1970s, for that matter), you may be out of luck. Reiko Aylesworth, who only joined up with the Dharma Initiative for a handful of episodes, has landed a role in Jerry Bruckheimer's untitled ABC drama pilot about amateur detectives.
Among a multitude of other ABC pilot castings from the Hollywood Reporter, Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue) has been cast in ...
Gail O’Grady, Frances Conroy and Lily Tomlin
Jeers to Desperate Housewives for squandering three terrific actresses in one-dimensional parts. Read, discuss and vote on this complete Jeer after the jump.
Timothy Hutton by Jesse Grant/WireImage.com
Timothy Hutton, who last tempted TV viewers with last season's Kidnapped, has landed the lead in the TNT drama pilot Leverage, says the Reporter. Hutton plays an investigator for Big Insurance who turns around and targets greedy corporations when his dying son is denied medical treatment.... Kevin Spacey has joined Recount, HBO's movie about the bungled 2000 election, playing a top aide to Vice President Al Gore.... Gail O'Grady, Greg Germann and Robert Mailhouse will star in All I Want for Christmas, a Hallmark flick about a single mom whose sad little dating life miraculously turns around. That's lovely and all, but what does it have to do with my two front teeth?
Saffron Burrows by Jeff Vespa/WireImage.com
Crane, Poole & Schmidt's semi-extreme makeover continues. Joining John Larroquette and Tara Summers as new additions to the Boston Legal cast this season are Circle of Friends' Saffron Burrows (as a sexy 'n' sophisticated litigator/former lover of James Spader's Alan) and Hustle & Flow's Taraji Henson (arriving mid-season as a New York office cohort of Larroquette's). The Reporter is also reporting that Mark Valley and Rene Auberjonois, half of last month's surprising cast purge, will return for multiple appearances, while Gail O'Grady is set to reprise her role of Judge Weldon for several episodes.
Hello, all you Hidden Palms fans! My, but you are an exclusive lot. Perhaps a tad too exclusive. That might be why the network is now showing two episodes (thats right, two original episodes back-to-back!) this Wednesday and next Wednesday, in the hopes that they can ignite Hidden Palms fever by the time our finale airs on July 4. (Cue fireworks here.)That being said, I deeply appreciate all your comments and votes of confidence and will continue to blog no matter what. Or at least until TV Guide tells me to stop. Which might happen on July 5. Well see. Anyway, lets talk about our two upcoming episodes. I think you will enjoy them for the following reasons:1. The mystery surrounding Eddies death deepens.2. The adults start to become more of a factor in the developing events. Trust me, this is a good thing. Kids misbehaving is one thing, but when the adults go naughty, its a hoot!So, here's the scoop: Cliff finally has it out with his moms sl...
Nobody likes a stalker.OK, where are my fellow teen-drama fans? The O.C.'s gone, One Tree Hill's fourth season is coming to a close, and The Hills although technically not a drama, but has enough in it to fall into the category is on hiatus. Hello, I need my mindless, love-torn, unrealistic TV! The CW wasn't about to leave us hanging, though. I've got to admit, the opening of this show surprised me and yet it didn't at the same time. "Life shouldn't be so expected." Well, I didn't expect Johnny's (Taylor Handley) father to shoot himself just then, but again, how can I be that shocked, right? "C'mon, Dad, I love drunk time, but I really need to finish this." Just with that line alone, Johnny's former structured self became just a cover for someone whose parent was so out of control, the only thing that made sense was numbers. Definite answers. One year later, camera in hand, hair as messy as a wannabe rock star's (or Jesse McCartney's possible twin brother?), Johnny's i...
Hello, again! I thought that since the show was premiering this week, it might be time to share some stories about shooting it. We all arrived at a fabulous hotel in Palm Springs called The Parker and started in on the various activities one does before starting to shoot something. You know, this one has to get his/her hair cut (that is always me), this one needs to consult with wardrobe and that one needs to talk to the director about their "character." Thats something that usually sends most directors running for the hills, by the way. As is very often the case with most projects, there was not really a lot of time to get to know everybody. There was a very nice meet and greet dinner, but a lot of us were still very much strangers during the first few days of shooting which can lead to some strange interchanges. For example, on the very first day of shooting, Gail OGrady and I were scheduled to shoot a scene in which her son (my step-son), Johnny, catches us making ...
Hello there, good people, and thanks for checking out the blog! I have gotten a few comments and I just want to say that I appreciate the compliments both on the blog and on my previous work. It means a lot to me that people out there have followed my career. But more than that, I want to say your budding enthusiasm for Hidden Palms is fully justified. I think you guys are gonna love it! My first blog was a little indulgent insofar as it chronicled my personal experiences associated with getting to work on Hidden Palms. So now Im going to be a little more generous and talk about the basic premise of the show, the experience of shooting the pilot and, of course, my fellow cast-mates. So let the dirt-slinging begin! So some of you have asked about the premise of Hidden Palms. Its a classic coming-of-age story, unique to our times and distinctive in that it comes wrapped in the particularly arch intelligence of a Kevin Williamson project. Those of you who have never seen o...
