Clark retired from prosecution and later went into private practice, as well writing books. She’s also one of the executive producers of THE FIX. In THE FIX, former assistant district […]Read On »

Christopher Meloni is so associated with his long-running TV drama roles, especially NYPD detective Elliot Stabler on twelve years of LAW & ORDER: SVU and prison inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s OZ, plus last year’s turns as heroic Col. Nathan Hardy in MAN OF STEEL and principled Leo Durocher in 42, people tend to forget he has a lighter side.

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL continues to rule the boxoffice as easily as Oz (James Franco) himself rules in the Emerald City. Before the film opened the very talented actresses that play the three witches of the movie spoke of their witchy roles. Michelle Williams plays Glinda the Good Witch, Rachel Weisz is Evanora Witch of the East, and Milla Kunis is Theodroa Witch of the West. All three of the actresses had a good time making the movie, and not a single one of them didn’t enjoy being in wires and flying about the sets. “I think we all […]Read On »

Harold Perrineau is no stranger to dark-souled characters, having played the seriously conflicted Michael Dawson on LOST and prison inmate Augustus Hill in OZ. However, Damon Pope, the Season Five villain in SONS OF ANARCHY (FX, Tuesdays at 10 PM), may be his darkest role yet. As series creator Kurt Sutter says, “I wanted an actor who … you would believe in a suit and tie standing in front of a city council meeting, at the same time he’s somebody that had the depth and the ability to turn dark and to do some of the heinous things that he […]Read On »

Cooper    Director: Larysa Kondracki         Network: BBC America, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 Well it had to happen sooner or later, COPPER has started to become one of those interminably slow moving period dramas that can’t seem to fill up an hour worth of content that keeps everything interesting and moving along.
