A mixed-race boxer in Manila tries to undo the wrongs wrought by a fixed fight in “Beast.” Promising debut feature for brothers Tom and Sam McKeith captures that city’s humid, teeming life with atmospheric familiarity, while its not particularly complex character writing and narrative get an additional boost by newcomer Chad McKinney’s lead performance. In nearly every scene, and with relatively little dialogue, he delivers a strong, thoughtful screen presence that lends “Beast” its substance. Beyond New Director-type showcases, commercial exposure will likely skew toward streaming sales.
Pugilist Jaime Grey (McKinney) has his hands full looking after ne’er-do-well American father/manager Rick (Garret Dillahunt). While the family’s Filipina matriarch is apparently working abroad — and, judging from the evidence of her occasional brief phone calls, eager to keep a cautious distance, even psychologically, from her menfolk — the interdependent father and son have a lopsided relationship, as Junior »

No, Mindy Lahiri is no longer drunkenly riding bicycles into swimming pools, but please don’t think that means she’ll have her stuff together when The Mindy Project returns — on Hulu — on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Executive producer Matt Warburton tells TVLine that the comedy is viewing its expanded, 26-episode fourth season as an opportunity to mess with its main character, who seems like she’s gotten pretty much everything she wanted.

Garret Dillahunt tends to be employed as a secret weapon in whatever movie or television project he appears in. Such is his diverse range that he can move from Oscar fare like "12 Years A Slave" to brainy sci-fi such as "Looper" and right into small screen comedies like "The Mindy Project." Once again, he shifts direction with "Beast," a boxing picture crossed with a crime thriller that will make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Today we have an exclusive trailer for the film.

Remember when Mindy Project‘s Dr. L was engaged in a sizzling hook-up with one of her co-workers… and it wasn’t Danny?
“It’s so weird to think of that now,” says Ed Weeks, who plays the British Ob-gyn. “Between the pilot and the second episode of the first season, there was definitely some rearranging that happened behind the scenes.”

Is Pernell Harris, the crooked judge who suddenly undergoes a religious conversion in Amazon’s Hand of God, losing his mind or tapping into the divine?
It’s a complicated question — and not one that’s answered by the end of the drama’s first episode (which, along with the rest of Season 1, premiered on the streaming video service Friday).
RelatedHand of God: 5 Things »
Amazon’s new drama “Hand of God” boasts a stellar cast of veteran and newer actors, yet it fails to compel as it weaves a story of attempted suicide, rape and religious fervor. With a cast including Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”), Dana Delany (“Body of Proof,” “China Beach”), Garret Dillahunt (“Justified”) Andre Royo (“The Wire”) and Julian Morris (“New Girl”), “Hand of God” is packed with proven talent. Though the pilot episode has calculated moments of high drama, it doesn’t make us care about the recently baptized Judge Pernell Harris (Perlman), his coolly detached wife Crystal (Delany), or his daughter-in-law. »

Despite Hand of God‘s Old Testament-esque title… and the presence of a pastor as one of its main characters… and the fact that its protagonist thinks a higher power is communicating with him via signs and wonders… the new Amazon drama is no holy roller, cast member Garret Dillahunt says.
“It’s oddly not a show about religion as much as it is about man’s interpretation of it, or twisting it to his own ends,” says the Raising Hope alum, who plays Kd, a former white supremacist whose introduction to Christianity hasn’t completely bled him of his violent tendencies. »
But Ron Perlman, the actor responsible for bringing both characters to life, sees a little Samcro in Harris’ soul.
“I think they have a good deal in common,” Perlman says, settling back onto a couch at New York’s Bryant Park Hotel. We’re both there to talk about Hand of God, the Amazon series in which he plays a corrupt judge who has a powerful religious revelation following his son’s suicide attempt. But for a moment, »

Created by Ben Watkins, and marking the television debut of filmmaker Marc Forster, the highly-anticipated Amazon Studios original dramatic series "Hand of God" stars Ron Perlman as the honorable justice Pernell Harris. The show centers on Judge Harris, a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. With no real evidence to go on, Pernell begins to rely on "visions" and "messages" he believes are being sent by God through Pernell's ventilator-bound son. "Hand of God" also stars Dana Delany as the Judge's protective wife Crystal Harris, Garret Dillahunt as Kd, the born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by Pernell, Andre Royo as the slick, smart, gregarious, and greedy mayor Robert...

Don’t get too excited just yet, folks, but it’s being reported that HBO is in very early talks to potentially put together a Deadwood movie, which, of course, would be based on David Milch’s critically acclaimed show that was brought to an end in 2006.
The commotion all began when actor Garret Dillahunt Tweeted the following earlier this week:
“So uh…I’m hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie.”
While unconfirmed at first, HBO has now gone on the record to state that yes, they are in very early talks with Milch but right now, it’s nothing more than a “preliminary conversation.” What this means isn’t exactly certain, but it’s nice to hear that the wheels are beginning to turn and that the idea is being floated around.
It makes sense that this would pop up now, too, given that the show’s star, »

Too many shows get cut down in their prime. For every long-running Law And Order, there.s a Firefly and a Dollhouse that only has a season or two to its name. Deadwood got lucky and logged three blood-soaked, profanity-laden years on HBO, treating its fans to a mix of Shakespeare and the Old West on a weekly basis. While there were talks of a movie after the show ended, much like Rome before it, nothing ever happened. At least, until today. The news started with a tweet from Garrett Dillahunt, famed character actor and cast member of the dearly departed Deadwood. That tweet read as follows: So uh....I'm hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie. #Everybodypray. Garret Dillahunt (@garretdillahunt) August 13, 2015 Keep in mind, tweets like these happen all the time. Cast members of film and television franchises love to speculate the futures of said properties, both active and »
Deadwood, the acclaimed HBO western series that was cancelled in 2006, may be returning — as a movie.
Actor Garret Dillahunt, who played two characters on the show, including geologist Francis Wolcott, during its run from 2004 to 2006, posted two tweets Wednesday hinting at the prospect. In response, a spokesman for HBO confirmed to Variety that "very preliminary discussions" have been made to resurrect the series with a movie.
Dillahunt's initial tweet read:
So uh....I'm hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie. #Everybodypray

HBO may be ready to put back on its cowboy hat and return to the whiskey-drinking, gun-slinging, no-law land of Deadwood. The much teased follow-up film to the incredibly beloved Western series seems to be a greater possibility than ever before after a tweet last night from Deadwood alum Garret Dillahunt. As Deadwood fans sadly know, the HBO drama was abruptly cancelled after three seasons back in 2006. At that time, after receiving much outrage from fans over the cancellation, HBO promised to produce not just one but two follow-up films to wrap up Deadwood‘s open storylines and give longtime viewers of the series some closure. However, the project never actually came to fruition, and even though there’s been talk and hope for years regarding the making of a Deadwood movie, Dillahunt is now telling people that there are “credible rumors” that the project is actually underway at HBO. »

I've got some good news for all of you Deadwood fans out there. Sources tell TV Line that there have been new talks between HBO and creator David Milch about possibly doing a movie, and last night star Garret Dillahunt ("Jack McCall" and "Francis Wolcott") tweeted that he's also heard rumblings of a Deadwood flick. When asked to comment, an HBO spokesperson... Read More »

After actor Garret Dillahunt tweeted about rumours of a comeback for the drama, HBO admitted to having had ‘preliminary conversations’ about a movie
It has been the source of fevered rumours ever since it was prematurely cancelled nearly a decade ago. Now HBO’s wild west drama Deadwood might finally be getting the return that fans craved, after HBO confirmed it was having “preliminary conversations” about reviving the show for a one-off movie.
HBO’s announcement came in response to a series of tweets sent by Deadwood actor Garret Dillahunt, who claimed that he had heard “credible rumours about at #Deadwood movie”. “Come on @HBO ... you made @entouragemovie. Give the #Deadwood fans some closure. #Youcandoit,” Dillahunt later tweeted.
