Common Law Moves Season Premiere to Summer of 2012

9 December 2011 12:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few weeks ago, we reported that the USA Network had set a Thursday, January 26 premiere date for its new series Common Law, which stars Michael Ealy and Warren Kole. It seems the network has had a change of heart, and will now debut Common Law sometime this summer.

The move is attributed to an exceedingly positive response to the pilot episode from focus groups and others who have seen it. The summer season is when the network normally rolls out its most popular shows, such as Burn Notice and Psych.

Common Law is currently shooting its 12-episode Season 1 in New Orleans. The show centers on two L.A.P.D. detectives (Michael Ealy and Warren Kole), who are ordered by their captain (Jack McGee) to attend couples counseling to work through their issues. Sonya Walger also stars as their counselor.

A specific premiere date wasn't given for Common Law, »

Moneyball Review

25 November 2011 9:19 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Bennett Miller

Starring: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Spike Jonze, Jack McGee, Chris Pratt.

Running Time: 133 Minutes

Certificate: 12A

Synopsis: The story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.

The sports movie, as a genre is primarily all about the underdog, whether your rooting for Stallone’s boxing rookie in Rocky, Newman’s band of ice-hockey misfits in Slap Shot or Costner’s cocky but lovable turn in Tin Cup, there is no mistaking it, the tingle on the back of your neck and the smile it can bring to your face is testament to that. The baseball movie has itself become almost a sub-genre with the highlights being the fact-based scandal Eight Men Out, fairytale-like Robert Redford classic The Natural (my own personal »

‘New Year’s Eve’ Trailer #2

27 September 2011 6:51 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There are so many stars in New Year’s Eve, the first full-length trailer reveals ones you didn’t even know had a part! There is Sarah Paulson of the upcoming Martha Marcy May Marlene as well as Jack McGee, recently memorable in The Fighter. Despite featuring the main cast of Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Josh Duhamel, Carla Gugino, Zac Efron, Abigail Breslin, Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Sofía Vergara, Alyssa Milano, Hilary Swank, Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sara Paxton, and Sarah Jessica Parker, we don’t even see all of the players.

Sienna Miller, John Stamos, John Lithgow, Julie Andrews and Frankie Muniz all reportedly show up at some point.

USA is preparing yet another original cable drama with Common Law, the story of two cops who go to couple’s counseling to get over their respective problems. The series was ordered from a pilot by CBS Studios.

Michael Ealy (Californication, The Good Wife) plays the straight man, Travis Marks, a former lawyer, divorcee and crack Lapd cop.

6 July 2011 5:56 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Today's TV snacks include a new series getting greenlit, an existing show coming back for a second season and a couple pieces of casting news.

USA has given the green light to a buddy-cop series called "Common Law." It stars Michael Ealy ("The Good Wife") and Warren Kole ("The Chicago Code") as Lapd detectives who hate each other so much that their captain (Jack McGee, "Rescue Me") sends them to couples counseling. Wacky! [USA]

The CW has added two new characters to "90210" for its fourth season. Justin Deeley ("Couples Retreat") will play a "cowboy type" -- actually the son of a country-music star -- who's a potential love interest for Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), while Megalyn Echikunwoke ("CSI: Miami") will play a rival of Naomi's at college.

Meet the new governor on "Hawaii Five-0": Richard T. Jones ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") will have a recurring part on the CBS series this season. »

The Fighter 2 Is Happening Says Mark Wahlberg

8 June 2011 1:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Wahlberg accepted the Guy Movie of the Year award for The Fighter at the Guys Choice Awards, which will air on Friday, June 10 at 9 Pm Et on Spike. The network released footage of Mark Wahlberg accepting the award, where he also discussed The Fighter 2 sequel. Here's what he had to say below about the project, which will involve Micky Ward's three fights with Arturo Gatti.

"We left out the Arturo Gatti fights for a reason, because that's for The Fighter 2. We're not going to do The Fighter 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, but we're going to do The Fighter 2. We're going to do the Ward/Gatti trilogy."

The actor's statement mirrored what he said back in March, when he revealed they only wanted to do one sequel to The Fighter. It seems that one sequel will cover all three fights, which happened between May 2002 and June 2003. Click on the video player below »
