THE HOUSE I LIVE IN was released theatrically in 2012; PBS is airing it Monday night, April 8 (check local listings for time) as part of the network’s INDEPENDENT LENS series. Jarecki is committed to showing THE HOUSE I LIVE IN […]Read On »

On FX’s JUSTIFIED, which has its fourth-season finale Tuesday at 10 PM, Timothy Olyphant’s Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens gets to do most of the flashy stuff – shooting people, romancing women, trying to outsmart his old frenemy and current Harlan County crime boss Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). However, the tone of the show wouldn’t be the same without Raylan’s world-weary, incredibly sensible boss Art Mullen, played by Nick Searcy. Searcy’s IMDB page lists 95 film and TV acting credits, including some big projects like MONEYBALL and THE FUGITIVE, plus PARADISE FALLS, the 1997 feature Searcy wrote and directed.

On TNT’s MONDAY MORNINGS, TNT Monday nights at 10 PM, the show centers around a hospital’s weekly Morbidity and Mortality meetings.

As an actor, Irwin won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Martin in the 2005 […]Read On »

The Chance family on the Greg Garcia-created comedy RAISING HOPE has been through a lot. Jimmy Chance, played by Lucas Neff, started out as a surprised single father of infant daughter Hope after he found out his one-night stand with a serial killer (since executed) had resulted in a child. With Jimmy’s eccentric parents (Garret Dillahunt, Martha Plimpton) and even more eccentric Maw-Maw (Cloris Leachman) also in the household, little Hope has had a far from tranquil time of it. With Jimmy marrying his relatively level-headed sweetheart Sabrina (Shannon Woodward), things might calm down in the hour-long Season 3 finale, […]Read On »
