Though American Crime will have (as always) a new setting, new characters and a new plot in its upcoming third season, one thing will remain blessedly the same: ABC’s anthology series will star Regina King, our sister site Deadline reports.

“We could not be more excited to welcome Regina back for a third season,” creator John Ridley said in a statement to the website. “She is among the talent who have quickly become intimately associated with the program.

Regina King is officially set to rejoin “American Crime” for Season 3, TheWrap has learned. The actress is the first of the cast to sign on for the third installment of John Ridley‘s ABC anthology series. Last year, she won an Emmy for her work on the drama’s first season. King’s co-stars have not yet joined the new season, but many are expected to return when the drama debuts with a new setting and characters. Season 2 also starred Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Lili Taylor, Elvis Nolasco, Trevor Jackson, Connor Jessup, Joey Pollari and Angelique Rivera. Also Read: ABC's »

Showtime recently announced its remake of “Twin Peaks” will include a cast of 217 actors. I pity whoever has to assemble that call sheet.
It’s hard enough these days for shows to stand out from the pack. Best of luck to the actors. The larger the cast, the harder it is for an actor to get any attention. And this year’s supporting actor and actress races are shaping up to be even more competitive than many of the lead races.
With A-list talent flocking to TV, the rise of the star-studded ensemble has certainly benefited TV fans, who get to see an incredible caliber of talent in choice roles. But what’s even more satisfying — and surprising — are the breakout performances from those names you might never have heard of before.

When it came to the lead acting races in last year’s limited series or movie category, the women mounted an impressive lineup. Three Academy Award winners (Frances McDormand, Jessica Lange, and Emma Thompson) and three Oscar nominees (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Queen Latifah, and Felicity Huffman) competed for the top prize, which went to McDormand for “Olive Kitteridge.”
This year, it looks to be the men’s turn, with a surprising number of Oscar nominees and winners eligible in the category, along with some big-name star power flexing its muscles. Academy Award winners in the running for lead actor include Anthony Hopkins (“The Dresser”), Cuba Gooding Jr. (“The People V. O.J. Simpson”), Richard Dreyfuss (“Madoff”), and Timothy Hutton (“American Crime”).
They will face considerable competition from Oscar nominees like Benedict Cumberbatch, who has already won an Emmy for his role in “Sherlock,” and Ian McKellen, who goes head-to-head with Hopkins in “The Dresser. »

"American Crime" earned Emmy nominations in all four movie/miniseries acting categories last year: for lead actors Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton, and supporting players Regina King and Richard Cabral, with King becoming the show's sole winner. All four returned for season two and could earn nominations yet again, but I do hope the TV academy remembers to save a spot for another returning cast member, Lili Taylor. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions Taylor had a limited role in the first season, playing a victim's advocate who reinforces some of the prejudices of Barb Hanlon (Huffman), the mother a slain war veteran. This season, however, Taylor was front and center as Anne Blaine, the mother of a teenage boy who was allegedly drugged and raped at a party. Parents defending their children was a recurring theme throughout this season of "American Crime,&q. »
After focusing on violence, racism and bigotry during its first season, "American Crime" shifted its focus to a completely new story and set of characters (many of whom are played by returning cast members), shining a light on school bullying, privilege, socio-economic disadvantage, gender, sexual orientation and sexual violence. Reviews for season two, which concluded Wednesday, have been even stronger than for the show’s first go-round, scoring an impressive 85 at MetaCritic. As such, "American Crime" could be poised for Emmy redemption this year. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions Last year, "American Crime" earned an impressive 10 Emmy nominations, including bids for Best Limited Series and in each of the four acting categories (leads Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman, as well as supporting actors Richard Cabral and Regina King).

Hitting the reset button on an acclaimed series can go in different directions, as evidenced by the second seasons of “Fargo” (terrific) and “True Detective” (not). ABC’s “American Crime” fell squarely into the former camp, buoyed by sensational performances and a twisty narrative, even if the finale didn’t quite measure up to all that preceded it.
Series creator John Ridley’s grim, spare and sobering series certainly possesses a premium-cable feel, and the ratings, frankly, have reflected those limitations. Although the template for using what amounts to a repertory of actors has been established in FX’s “American Horror Story,” the different roles for key players should only heighten appreciation of their talents, with season two producing an abundance of Emmy-worthy work.
In a way, the connective tissue for “American Crime’s” two runs – even more than a tragic series of events, steadily escalating situation and outwardly sedate »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the season two finale of “American Crime.”
After a season filled with questions — what really happened at the captains’ party? — “American Crime” ended with even more. Did Taylor (Connor Jessup) accept the plea deal? Did Eric (Joey Pollari) get into the car?
But that’s exactly the point, says executive producer John Ridley. “I would like people to read as much into it as they possibly can,” he tells Variety.
Whatever truly happened that fateful night, the fallout ultimately rippled throughout the community, impacting everyone from the head of school (Felicity Huffman) who thought she’d escaped unscathed, to the hacker (Richard Cabral) who set out for social justice but wound up a target himself, to the Sullivan family (Timothy Hutton and Hope Davis) who saw their daughter headed off to jail.
Not to put too fine a point on it, »

Tonight’s season finale of “American Crime” caps an outstanding season that touched on race, class, education and social injustice.
Executive producer John Ridley says he was overwhelmed by the response to the season. “We told the story we really wanted to tell,” he says. “There were moments we felt the story on the surface would not be as easy a point of entry. And what we were surprised by was the audience came back more probably engaged, more appreciative, more ready to be observant of the stories we were telling. That was special.”
While last season drew critical raves, earning the show 11 Emmy nominations, this season has resonated more with audiences. Ridley attributes it to the universal theme of family, which he says everyone can relate to.
“Last year there was so much that was about the dissolution of family, and families falling apart from the jump,” he says. »

But in our exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s season finale (ABC, 10/9c), that camaraderie between colleagues is nowhere to be found.
In the scene embedded above, Timothy Hutton’s basketball coach pays Leslie a visit at Leyland, begging for some help with his daughter’s recent legal ordeal — but he quickly realizes that cashing in favors with the administration isn’t as easy as it once was.

The gang at Scream Factory has quite the roster up their sleeves, and three of the releases they have planned sound quite interesting. On April 5th, Sf, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, will release the cyber-bullying gone wrong tale #Horror, featuring Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. Personally, I get excited for the Sf/IFC joint releases, with previous films like Dark Summer and The Babadook being some of my recent favorite genre films.
In #Horror, Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story, American Psycho) leads an ensemble cast that includes Timothy Hutton (American Crime, The Dark Half) and Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning of Orange is the New Black. This shocking chiller is written and directed by actress and designer Tara Subkoff (The Cell, The Last Days of Disco).

“We were altar boys together.”
The Falcon And The Snowman screens Thursday March 3rd at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks
There is something about true stories that makes them so much more interesting than fiction. The Falcon And The Snowman (1985) tells the true story about Christopher Boyce and his buddy Daulton Lee. Boyce (Tim Hutton) is a former altar boy and intellectual, trying to find an occupation that can support and entertain him. His FBI father is able to pull some strings and get his idealist son a job working in the defense department. Boyce has few responsibilities and seems to be complacent drinking and goofing around with his co-workers. However, as time goes on, Boyce starts to learn top secret information that causes him to doubt the morality of his government. The idealist Boyce soon sees the illegal operations that the CIA is carrying out in above all places, »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode seven of “American Crime.”
The episode opens with another revelation: Anne Blaine’s (Lili Taylor) medical records have come out, making public her history of mental illness. “Are you asking me because you care, or are you asking because you want something to write about?” she asks a reporter.
Tensions are mounting between Leyland headmaster Leslie Graham (Felicity Huffman) and basketball coach Dan Sullivan (Tim Hutton). Whatever bond they once had has clearly fractured; Dan suspects her of leaking Anne’s medical records, and accuses her not doing enough to defend his basketball players.
But this hour is all about Taylor (Connor Jessup), who’s beaten and bruised at the hands of the basketball team. »

Twenty years ago this week - Feb. 9, 1996 - the romcom-dramedy Beautiful Girls first opened in theaters. The film centers around Willie (Timothy Hutton), who returns home for his high school reunion in a small Massachusetts town. It's funny, it's heartwarming, and it features one of the better ensemble casts of the 1990s. In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, we're pulling out the yearbook and looking up the film's cast to what they've been up to over the past 20 years.
