Nine years ago this month, HBO's hit series Deadwood aired its last episode after just three seasons on the air. Ever since then, fans have been clamoring for the show to return in some form, with series star Kim Dickens saying last year that Deadwood creator David Milch still wants to give the beloved Western series a proper ending. Earlier today, star Garret Dillahunt told his Twitter followers that he's heard rumors of a Deadwood movie. Here's what the actor had to say on his Twitter page.
TV Line also reports that HBO is actually in negotiations with David Milch for a movie that will wrap up the story line, though it is not stated whether or not this will be a movie that airs on HBO or in theaters, »

Ray Donovan Season 3, Episode 4 “Breakfast of Champions” (original air date Aug. 2, 2015): Lots of crazy cereal talk in this episode. Made me pick up a box of Captain Crunch (so why does that cereal rip out the top of your mouth, anyways?). Ok, enough of that, here’s the recap Ray Donovan Episode 4. The episode begins with Abby returning to Boston to visit her Southie family. She surprises her brother Dave (Aaron Hendry) at their family bar. “You look like a fucking teenager,” he tells her. “I feel like an old woman.” Abby (Paula Malcomson) takes no … Continue reading →

Ray Donovan Season 3, Episode 3 “Come and Knock on Our Door” (original air date July 26, 2015): Episode 3 of Ray Donovan begins with a beat-up Ray (Liev Schreiber) sitting in Bridget’s room watching her sleep. Bridget’s startled by both his looks — his face took quite the beating by that ex-navy Seal Paige Donovan got him involved with — and him actually being home. He apologizes for not making it home for dinner. She tells him Abby (Paula Malcomson) gave his food to the dog. “She thinks you’re still punishing her over that cop,” Bridget (Kerris Dorsey) explains. … Continue reading →

The noise-making guest stars essentially cancel each other out in the new season of “Ray Donovan,” with Ian McShane adding viperine class as a wealthy mogul out to commandeer the title character’s services, and Katie Holmes at best proving an irritant as said mogul’s daughter. The departure of showrunner Ann Biderman hasn’t yielded significant changes, as the story continues to dig its way out of the dark corners into which it traveled in its sophomore year. Yet while this Showtime series still has its strengths and charms, the Hollywood fixer looks like he could use a bit of a fix.
One of the hurdles facing the new season stems from the manner in which last year’s events fractured several key relationships. Not only did Liev Schreiber’s Ray acknowledge his own sexual abuse at the hands of a priest (which had taken a more overt toll »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Promo 2. Showtime‘s Ray Donovan: Season 3 TV show trailer 2 star Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, and Katherine Moennig. Ray Donovan: Season 3’s plot synopsis: “Season three finds Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss. Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season’s heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.”
This season looks like it will be good. I’ve seen the first episode (review coming soon) and can personally attest to the fact that the first episode is entertaining.

Showtime has just released the full trailer for Ray Donovan Season 3, in which the titular Hollywood fixer, played by a reliably pickled Liev Schreiber, takes on a new client in the personage of Ian McShane's Malcolm Finney. The trailer focuses mainly on how Ray's relationship with Finney, including his daughter, Paige (Katie Holmes), leads to him to (yet again) reconsider his choice of profession. That doubt, per usual, becomes twice as potent when he gets involved with his father, Mickey (Jon Voight), who continues his own side of the dirty business at hand. The series seems to be building to another blowout between Ray and Mickey, as Malcolm Finney's line about happy families feels like a direct parallel with what the Donovan family has been weathering for the last two seasons.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 manages to capture all the elements that has kept the franchise great, but fails to be more than a cash-grab by the studio who felt the need to break the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy into two films.Directed by Francis Lawrence (who helmed Catching Fire), Mockingjay, Part 1 features an incredible supporting cast including Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, Mahershala Ali, Jeffrey Wright, Paula Malcomson, and Stanley Tucci.The film picks up right after the events of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) broken from […] »

Katie Holmes is ready to meet Ray Donovan. The Dawson’s Creek actress will be joining the cast of the Showtime drama for its third season in what is being described as a “major” role. Holmes will play Paige, a businesswoman that is described as “shrewd” and “chic” and who also happens to be the daughter to another new Ray Donovan character, Andrew Finney, who will be played by Ian McShane. As we already reported last week, McShane’s Finney will be “a prominent movie producer and billionaire who hires Ray (Liev Schreiber) to get his family out of a potentially catastrophic situation.” While McShane’s casting creates the possibility of a Deadwood reunion between him and his former co-star Paula Malcomson, who plays Ray’s wife Abby on the Showtime series, Holmes’ casting also allows for a reunion of sorts, since she and her former Dawson’s Creek co-star »

For the second year in a row, Katniss Everdeen stands alone atop the box office heap. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which opened in November and is still playing in over 1,200 theaters, has earned $333.18 million as of yesterday, surpassing the Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy as the top-grossing movie of 2014. Despite already being released on Blu-ray and DVD, Guardians of the Galaxy is still playing, though it was only screening in 65 theaters nationwide last weekend, meaning its domestic take of $333.17 million won't increase too much over the next few weeks.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 still has some work to do if it wants to surpass its predecessor, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was 2013's top movie at the box office with $424.7 million. While That movie's take was bolstered by 3D and IMAX screenings, Deadline's sources claim that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was screened in, »
Fans of Showtime’s Ray Donovan still have to wait until the summer for the series to return for its third season. However, this casting news should certainly get them excited for what’s coming next on the show. As first reported by TVLine, Deadwood alum Ian McShane will be joining the Ray Donovan cast in Season 3 in a recurring role. Per TVLine, McShane will play “Malcolm Finney, a prominent movie producer and billionaire who hires Ray (Liev Schreiber) to get his family out of a potentially catastrophic situation.” No other details, such as the amount of episodes that McShane will be in, are known at this time. Although, on its own, McShane’s casting is certainly exciting news, it’s probably even more of a treat for Ray Donovan fans that also watched the HBO western Deadwood, which not only starred McShane but also Ray Donovan series regular Paula Malcomson, »

Ray Donovan has to be one of my favourite shows on TV at the moment. The unrelenting, tense action and brilliant storylines in a show headed by the rather watchable Liev Schreiber, makes it unmissale every week. Production on season three is just about to get underway in Los Angeles, and news reaches us this morning that one of Britain’s great character actors has joined the cast.
Ian McShane, who has appeared in the likes of Hercules, Sexy Beast, Cuban Fury and the legendary TV series Deadwood, which pretty much catapulted him to Hollywood notoriety, will play a billionaire movie producer in the next season who hires Schreiber’s Donovan to help him get out of a bit of a pickle.
