On November 9, Shout! Factory is releasing the fourth and final season of the late 80′s drama Thirtysomething, created by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz (Once & Again) and starring the likes of Tim Busfield (The West Wing), Peter Horton, and the much-missed David Clennon (The Agency). I have a sneak peek inside that release for you now.
On paper, Thirtysomething is like any other show we have on TV about a group of friends, their significant others and their messed-up relationships…however, unlike most of those series currently on the air, it focuses on people who are older than college-age. The 1987-1991 series was not one of the classic shows I watched in my youth, so this was the first time that I’ve ever really been exposed to it. Maybe it’s because I’m still out of its age range, but it didn’t really appeal to »

SAG yesterday released the official list of candidates for its upcoming national board elections. Notably, all of the open seats in La (the Hollywood Division) are held by MembershipFirst members, which means that, as was the case last year, Mf can at best maintain its level of representation on the national board. More likely, it will lose some of its board seats.
On the Hollywood divisional board, Mf could gain or lose, as all division seats are up every year. This contrasts with the national board, where approximately 1/3 of the 69 seats are up in any given year. The president and secretary-treasurer, who are ex officio members of the board, have two-year terms, and are not up for election this year.
Ballots in Hollywood and New York will be mailed on August 24 with a return deadline and tabulation on September 23. Election results are expected to be announced that evening.

Chicago – A very subdued and scientific Harrison Ford recently spoke with HollywoodChicago.com and two other Chicago film critics on the subject of his new true-story film “Extraordinary Measures”. Ford stars in the film and served as its executive producer since inception.
At one point in our interview, the 67-year-old Chicago native calmly uttered a minor expletive and then reminded us that we have the choice about whether or not to print it. While the interview style of some actors can fall into the more eccentric bucket, the Ford experience on this day was decidedly professional, conservative and relatively serious.
Hollywood legend Harrison Ford poses for his hometown HollywoodChicago.com red-carpet portrait at
the premiere of “Extraordinary Measures” on Jan. 12, 2009 at the AMC River East movie theater in Chicago.

In other words, Ford clearly wasn’t wearing his extreme adventurer »
