Keck's Exclusives: NBC's Chase Casts Annie's Dad

William Sadler

An upcoming two episode arc of NBC's Chase will introduce viewers to the fugitive father of lead character, Deputy U.S. Marshal Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish). It was the search for her father that originally kicked off Annie's lifelong "chase."

Cast in the role of William Frost is character actor William Sadler, who was seen earlier this season in the premiere episode of CBS's Hawaii Five-0 as the father of Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin). That character didn't fare so well, and Annie's dad could also wind up dead if she doesn't act fast... read more

Episode 7: "The Reunion"

On Sunday while vactioning, I was informed by a stranger that Traveler had been cancelled. I freaked out. He then looked at me and said, “Didn’t you say you worked for TV Guide?” I was a bit embarrassed. I go out of town for one week and my whole world changes!Apparently ABC has let the actors' contracts lapse. Basically this means the show will not return, but ABC will air its finale next week. And since this is my blog, I am just going to say it: The ABC executives who made this decision are ignorant. There are many different forms of ignorance, but in this case it's simply blind stupidity. Does that make sense? I made it up and I like it.For more details, check out Traveler writer/producer David DiGilio’s blog. He explains it much better and nicer than I do. I just don’t get it. I’ve previewed a few of the new pilots that will air this fall and it doesn’t look good for the networks. Why let a great show like Traveler go? Of course, it wasn't a m... read more

June 27th, 2007: The Trader

There were some new characters introduced. All of which were either thrown through a window, tied up or shot. It was awesome! I tried to follow attentively, but ABC's local news interrupted the show many times to inform me that a major thunderstorm was headed my way. So, I apologize in advance if I missed anything really important and worth mentioning. Now, on to the blog....Tyler Fog (Logan Marshall-Green) used to take a backseat to Jay (Matthew Bomer). I’ll repeat: used to. Tyler not only went against his best friend, but he also confronted his father. Tyler knew his father had betrayed him. He had proof dating back to the day he was financially cut off. But he wanted to ask him in person. I wanted to jump through the television screen and beat the crap out of Carlton Fog (William Sadler). Who sacrifices his son for money? Or as Carlton Fog puts it: security for his family. Minus one. We are beginning to lack sidekicks and wingmen on this show. Tyler stepped up and took con... read more

Traveler Preview: The Truth About Carlton Fog Is Revealed!

Logan Marshall-Green and Matthew Bomer, Traveler

So they learned something in grad school after all. Tonight at 10 pm/ET on ABC's Traveler, the Ivy League fugitives stop running and return to New York to suss out who framed them for the Drexler museum bombing. With the involuntary help of a fellow Yalie, now a stock-market trader (Invasion's always-welcome Tyler Labine), Jay (Matthew Bomer) and Tyler (Logan Marshall-Green) uncover the unsavory truth about Tyler's dear old billionaire dad, Carlton (William Sadler). "It's a turning point for the story," says David DiGilio, executive producer of thi read more

Four-quadrant Television

Hey, fellow Travelers! We had a great week both in episode response and in the ratings. All of your hard work promoting the show paid off with a 23-percent ratings increase week-to-week in the 18-to-49 demo. So, a huge thank-you goes out to all the fans who continue to spread the good Traveler word! Please keep it up. The show gets even more fun, action-packed and emotional as we head into the last three episodes of the season.Wow, "fun, action-packed and emotional?" Where have I heard those criteria for good entertainment before? Well, funny story. As you know from my earlier blog entries, I started out on the film side of this wild little town we call Hollywood. And in Hollywood, there's a special buzz term we use a lot when talking about the movie biz" "four-quadrant movie." But what exactly is a 4Q film? Well, there are about a dozen of them playing in your local cineplex right now. They dominate the summer movie season. They are films that appeal to all four of the major movieg... read more

June 6, 2007: New Haven

Will (Aaron Stanford) is alive. I think we all knew the well-done corpse left behind in the Drexler was not him. Not only did he survive the blast, he also had time to grab a few rare paintings before he skipped out. I figured the bombing was meant to be a distraction in order to steal artwork. I’m hoping the Feds eventually figure it out. I don’t think the bombing will be considered a terrorist attack once priceless artwork is thrown into the equation, but if I’m not mistaken, the prized artwork was a part of the U.S. president’s personal collection.Once again Kim (Pascale Hutton) was the heroine of the episode. I knew the pictures were gone once she bumped into that man. The pickpocket scheme was so well executed. It shows that Kim has been followed and watched all along. Whoever set up Jay (Matthew Bomer) and Tyler has thought everything through. Right down to storage boxes in an ex-girlfriend’s basement. How crazy was it that the floor plans to the Drexl... read more

May 30, 2007: The Retreat

I almost missed the second episode! I was so confused — and that’s saying something — look who I work for! I thought it was just going to be a repeat of the pilot episode, but we got lucky. Jay and Tyler were on for two full hours. And I’m glad they repeated the pilot, because my memory needed to be refreshed.If ABC cancels this show, my heart will be broken. So far, it has me skipping beats. I am not just saying that because I write this blog. I mean it — this show is really entertaining. So much happened in the second episode. Most of the important information came from the flashbacks. I knew Carlton Fog (William Sadler) was not a good person. He seemed like a jerk from the start and his creepy-bald friend proved me right. But the flashbacks are what really worry me. Will Traveler (Aaron Stanford) knew him. He referred to him as “Carlton” instead of simply saying “Tyler’s Dad” or “Mr. Fog”. And he had supposedly never m... read more

Wonderfalls Daddy Sings Out

Actor William Sadler is best known for serious roles in films like The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. Still, the 54-year-old has a sense of humor. After all, he did play the Grim Reaper in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey! He taps into his funny side again in the new Fox comedy Wonderfalls (Fridays at 9 pm/ET). His role is Darrin, Jayne's loving yet outspoken father — and as Sadler points out, a young lady who converses with inanimate objects needs a firm parental hand. "[Darrin] isn't like the father on Malcolm in the Middle, who is overtly wacky. He's more curmudgeonly," he tells TV Guide Online. "He's one of those conservative types, who works hard and cares a lot. He's a man of measured mirth, except f read more
