The week in TV: Exodus: Our Journey to Europe; Shades of Blue; Man Down; My Worst Job

16 July 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC’s documentary on the journey to Europe, in part filmed by refugees themselves, was essential viewing, while Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta starred in a capable cop show

Exodus: Our Journey to Europe (BBC2) | iPlayer

Shades of Blue (Sky Living) | Sky Go

Man Down (C4) | All4

My Worst Job (C4) | All4

It was entitled Exodus, and for once the biblical grandiosity was wholly justified. It was also the most spellbinding documentary of the year. I can almost guarantee that if you’d encountered even a third of the first episode, you’d have sat through the two subsequents. For what else might you have been so vitally doing? Tuesday pub quiz? Moonpigging for the goldfish’s birthday? Blithely signing online petitions?

Finally, after two months on the go, the impossibly upbeat Isra’a, 11, wept endlessly and hopelessly

Exclusive interview with actor Vladimir Kulich

david j. moore chats with actor Vladimir Kulich about The 13th Warrior, Ironclad, The Equalizer and his new projects Grave Walkers and Savage Dog

Perhaps best known for playing Buliwyf in The 13th Warrior, the big budget epic sword and sorcery-type film from director John McTiernan and writer Michael Crichton from 1999, actor Vladimir Kulich towers above his co-stars in most of the projects he’s been in. Imbued with a distinct look and voice, Kulich also co-starred in films such as Decoy with Peter Weller, Red Scorpion 2 with Matt McColm, Crackerjack with Thomas Ian Griffith, and Firestorm with Howie Long. Over the years he’s specialized in playing Nordic heroes or stalwart warriors in projects like Ironclad and the TV series Vikings, but he’s also versatile, appearing in key roles in Smokin’ Aces and The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. His latest projects are the independent horror film Grave Walkers »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Brendan Fraser to Star in Bollywood Thriller ‘The Field’ as a Gun-Running Villain

16 June 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Brendan Fraser’s mummy-killing days may be behind him, but Encino Man will rise again. The actor has just been announced as the villain in “The Field,” a Bollywood gangster drama marking the directorial debut of Rohit Karn Batra. He’s set to star as a gun-runner named Charu whose “illicit dealings with the Indian underworld wedges him in the middle of the family implosion.”

Ray Liotta was initially attached the project when first it was announced in 2014, but alterations to the screenplay led to personnel changes as well. “The more the script evolved,” said Batra, “the more obvious it became Brendan was the best choice for the idiosyncratic role of Charu. For a director to explore this journey with him in a place like India is nothing less than a once in a lifetime opportunity.” India isn’t as well known to the outside world for its hard-hitting genre fare as it is for its musicals, but anyone who’s seen Anurag Kashyap’s five-hour “Gangs of Wasseypur” knows that “The Field” won’t be the first mob movie to emerge from Bollywood.

Prem Chopra, Ronit Roy, Neeraj Kabi, Vineet Singh and Radhika Apte will all be starring alongside Fraser, whose work in “Airheads” and “The Scout” has gone unheralded for far too long.

Then again, such a moment in Daniel Alfredson‘s “Blackway” is a near-perfect summation of the film as a whole: dully shot, performed as […]

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

1 June 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven nominations for playing Don Draper, the eighth time was the charm for Jon Hamm, who finally took home the prize last year for “Mad Men” in its final season. With Hamm now out of the race, the path is cleared for an actor who has never won for his current role. Some of the category’s frontrunners have won previously, some for lead actor, some in other categories, including Kyle Chandler (“Bloodline”), who won for “Friday Night Lights”; Bobby Cannavale (“Vinyl”), a “Boardwalk Empire” winner; Aaron Paul (“The Path”), who won for “Breaking Bad”; and “Billions” pair Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti, who took home prizes for “Homeland” and “John Adams,” respectively. Actors who have received previous noms for their current characters without a win include Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”).
