Ross McCall Hits TV with a Controversial Crash

Ross McCall in Crash

Inspired by the Academy Award-winning (if somewhat controversial) Best Picture of 2006, Crash hits the smaller screen Friday at 10 pm/ET, on the Starz Entertainment cable channel. Headlined by film vet Dennis Hopper and peppered with salty language, racy moments and racial tension, the TV adaptation, like its inspiration, looks at the way disparate lives intersect in the melting pot that is Los Angeles.

Ross McCall, the lucky Scot who soon will get to call Jennifer Love Hewitt his wife and in Crash plays a rule-bending street cop, gave us a peek at the new series. Plus: What he finds sexy about the Sexiest Woman on TV. This is the first original drama series produced by Starz. What about this project made you not anxious about precisely that?
Ross McCall:
I worked for HBO a couple of years ago [on Band of Brothers], and shows like The Sopranos had made HBO into a booming place. So when Starz and Lionsgate decided to do their first original series, I really wanted to be a part of something that ... read more

Roush Review: A Crash Course in L.A. Life

Brian Tee and Arlene Tur, Crash

Seems every movie channel wants its own Mad Men–style prestige project. Which could explain why pay-cable upstart Starz has raided the Oscar vault to turn the 2006 best-picture winner, Crash, into an ambitious, if not immediately convincing, weekly series.

With all new characters, so this isn't exactly a sequel, TV's Crash resembles the movie in being less about car wrecks than about disparate cultures colliding within the ethnic melting pot of Los Angeles. Still, there is one fateful smashup in the opening hour, and pivotal moments often occur on wheels — in a limo, an ambulance, a patrol car.

Ask Matt: Is Sylar Bad for Heroes? Will Viewers Crash into Starz's Show ? And More!

Zachary Quinto, Heroes

p>TV Guide's Senior Critic Matt Roush takes your TV questions. Have a rant, rave or burning question about your favorite show you'd like addressed? E-mail him here.

Question: What shall we do with Heroes? NBC must be asking itself the same question. Its first season, the show was a breakthrough hit, and then its season finale disappointed many. The abbreviated second season disappointed many more. Its producer publicly apologized for mistakes in that season. Then it comes back, supposedly rejuvenated and better than ever. NBC promotes the hell out of it and, almost unbelievably, viewership is down. The episodes that have aired so far have certainly been pretty good and even promising. I have to wonder if NBC made a blunder by airing the premiere against the Dancing with the Stars premiere. Maybe they should have come back a week earlier. Regardless, we need some explanation as to why the show can't get back on track to where it was in its best first season moments. My conclusion is that there was one colossal blunder made by the show's producers that has caused most of the problems, and that decision was to keep Sylar around after the first season. — Kelly H.
