Fox’s BONES is in its tenth season, Thursdays at 8 PM. By all reports, everyone enjoyed the show’s change of pace 200th episode, “The 200th in the 10th,” which aired as the midseason finale. Directed by star David Boreanaz, who normally plays FBI Agent Seeley Booth, the segment found all of the regular actors playing different characters in a 1950s Hitchcockian tale that saw Booth as a Robin Hood-like jewel thief and Emily Deschanel’s Dr. Temperance Brennan as a rookie cop trying to prove her worth as a detective. Arguably the biggest stretch was for Tamara Taylor, who usually plays […]Read On »

Michaela Conlin, who customarily plays artist and computer genius Angela Montenegro, portrayed an LAPD stenographer in “The 200th in the 10th.” She talks about the change of […]Read On »

TOGETHERNESS Star Melanie Lynskey Talks her new HBO series – interview

In HBO’s new half-hour TOGETHERNESS, Sundays at 9:30 PM, Melanie Lynskey plays Michelle Pierson. Michelle is a mother of two who starts to examine her marriage when her sister (Amanda Peet) and her husband’s best friend (Steve Zissis) move in with the family. The naturalistic tone of TOGETHERNESS, created by independent feature filmmakers/brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass (who plays Michelle’s husband Brett) is distinctly different from the raucous high style of CBS’ TWO AND A HALF MEN, which Lynskey has recurred on for over a decade as Rose, devoted stalker and possibly murderer of Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie. Lynskey, […]Read On »
