Doug Jones is finally getting recognized for his work. It’s not that he’s a newcomer – Jones has been in Hollywood since the ‘80s, and has been in a number of huge projects – but he’s spent most of his career under enormous amounts of prosthetic makeup and complicated costumes. Originally from Indiana, Jones trained both as an actor and as a mime, a background that has allowed him to move persuasively as all sorts of fantastic, otherworldly, and/or alien beings. Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has worked with Jones for decades, starting with MIMIC in 1997, which had Jones playing […]Read On »

In ABC’s freshman comedy series THE NEIGHBORS, Wednesdays at 8:30 PM, the Weaver family, headed up by mom Debbie (Jami Gertz) and dad Marty (Lenny Venito), move to an idyllic-looking suburban development – that turns out to be entirely populated by aliens stuck on this planet after they’ve lost their ability to return to home planet Zabvron. The aliens take their names from human sports celebrities, so the Weavers’ next-door neighbors – and tentative new friends – are dubbed Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) and Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundouye). The results are multiculturalism at a wider range than mere terrestrial folks […]Read On »

As ANGER MANAGEMENT creator/executive producer Bruce Helford points out, the series is produced at an accelerated speed, shooting two episodes a week. “There’s no real rehearsal for the show,” he explains. “Literally, the actors get the lines, we see the scene on its feet, […]Read On »

In ABC’s THE RIVER (which airs its Season 1 finale tonight), a mixed group of documentary filmmakers and other personnel voyage along the unknown byways of South America’s mighty Amazon in search of a missing naturalist. They find plenty of supernatural peril along the way. Of course, they wouldn’t get very far without an engineer, which is where Daniel Zacapa’s character Emilio Venezuela comes in. Zacapa in reality was born in Honduras and employs a Honduran accent as Emilio. It’s therefore a little startling to meet Zacapa and discover that his everyday accent is standard U.S. Zacapa is attending ABC’s […]Read On »
