In Fox’s freshman Thursday-night drama DEPUTY, due to an arcane rule, Deputy Bill Hollister (Stephen Dorff), is unexpectedly promoted to Acting Sheriff of Los Angeles County. This has a ripple effect on everyone around him, especially Bill’s wife, trauma surgeon Paula Reyes, played by Yara Martinez. Martinez, originally from Puerto Rico, played easily rattled Dr. Luisa Alver (the one who mistakenly artificially inseminates the heroine) over five seasons of the mostly comedic JANE THE VIRGIN. Martinez has also had recurring or regular roles on series including BULL, THE TICK (as Ms. Lint), I LOVE DICK, TRUE DETECTIVE, ALPHA HOUSE, THE […]Read On »

He served as writer and director on the acclaimed LAPD drama END OF WATCH, and wrote the […]Read On »

In Fox’s new Thursday-night series DEPUTY, Stephen Dorff stars as Bill Hollister. Bill is a Los Angeles County deputy sheriff who does not get along well with management. Then the current L.A.

Chris Long, a DEPUTY executive producer who helped create the series with Will Beall and fellow executive producer/director David Ayer, gives us the low-down. ASSIGNMENT X: What was the impetus to make DEPUTY? Is it just because people don’t normally think “Los Angeles” and “Sheriff’s Department” together and you thought that would be […]Read On »

Taken from Arkham Asylum for their mad skills with weapons, sorcery, mutant powers and sensual psychotic chops, Price brings the hybrid rage of today’s action scoring to the next level, blending […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, America Ferrara, Cody Horn, Natalie Martinez, Frank Grillo Writer: David Ayer Director: David Ayer Distributor: Open Road Films Release Date: September 21, 2012 END OF WATCH is an entertaining, mostly solid buddy cop drama. Director/writer David Ayer for some reason has elected to show the bulk of it through video cameras – both the police and the criminals have them – which doesn’t seem to serve any purpose. In horror movies, this format can allow for a particular type of tension and storytelling, but here, everything could just as easily (and […]Read On »
