Who was the Person that Decided David Caruso Was a Tough Guy?

9 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you think of NYPD Blue you think of two people:  David Caruso and Dennis Franz.   Franz is the obviously rough and gruff guy.  I mean his appearance, face, voice, mustache, everything screams New York cop or detective.  But David Caruso?  This is a sweet looking man with a very calm demeanor.  And whether you’re a redhead or not you can’t deny that doesn’t exactly help his tough guy NYPD mystique much.   But there he was, killing it on NYPD for one season before taking off and trying to be a movie star.   By the way, I’m taking nothing away

The result is a wildly entertaining exploration of what it means to be human, as well as a deeply moving experience that I enjoyed immensely.

After the premiere performance this past Friday, Daily Dead had the opportunity to chat with both Rock and Gordon (who are reteaming once again after a successful collaboration on Taste, a cannibal-themed dramatic production that also played at »

28 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »
