In the beginning, and to the very end, Justified was about two guys who once dug coal together.

The FX drama on Tuesday night wrapped its six-season run with, of course, much gunplay, a couple more deaths, a few happy (or happy-ish) endings, a significant time jump and a wee surprise.

Interview: Stephen Moyer on playing Pontius Pilate in Nat Geo’s Killing Jesus

28 March 2015 9:40 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Stephen Moyer has arrived on the Ouarzazate, Morocco, set of National Geographic Channel’s Killing Jesus with just three hours of sleep after a numbing 20-hour journey to the remote city by land and air. Fortunately, his exhaustion serves the intensely pivotal scene he is about to shoot. Standing in a crowded courtyard on Ridley Scott’s sprawling Kingdom of Heaven set, Moyer — who plays Pontius Pilate, Roman governor of Jerusalem — is locked in a final showdown with the high priest Caiaphas (a simmering Rufus Sewell) over Jesus’ fate. Pilate urges Caiaphas that scourging is punishment enough for the battered … Continue reading →

TV Review: ‘Killing Jesus’

25 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing” series brings its most inherently commercial title — “Killing Jesus” — to National Geographic Channel, and at least with this topic, nobody needs to worry about O’Reilly claiming to have been there. Produced by Ridley Scott’s company, an outfit that’s no stranger to epics, the production lends a straightforward quality to the story, and takes its name seriously, squarely focusing on the circumstances and scheming that surround Christ’s death. Along the way there are discreet miracles, but this represents a more historical approach to material that’s currently arriving in abundance, a byproduct of History’s success with “The Bible.”

Compared with other recent depictions of Jesus, this one — directed by Christopher Menaul from an adaptation by Walon Green — is perhaps most notably characterized by restraint. So while covering a good deal of ground, the filmmakers don’t linger over the ordeal of the Crucifixion in the way, »

Kurt Sutter Unveils 'Bastard Executioner' TV Show Logo

11 March 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after the full cast for the FX series The Bastard Executioner was revealed, series creator Kurt Sutter took to his Instagram page today to show off the official logo. For fans of his last series, Sons of Anarchy, The Bastard Executioner will be quite a departure, set in medieval England during King Edward I's reign between 1272 and 1307 A.D. While you certainly shouldn't expect any motorcycles on this series, it will surely still retain the gritty edge that Kurt Sutter is known for.

The series follows a warrior knight in King Edward I's charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all. Australian actor Lee Jones leads the ensemble cast as this warrior named Wilkin Brattle, with a supporting cast that includes Stephen Moyer, »

Anna Paquin To Star In HBO Miniseries Madame X

6 March 2015 5:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO are currently courting Anna Paquin for Madame X, a miniseries she and her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer are developing through their production company, Casm. Based on Kate Manning’s book My Notorious Life, the show is set in Victorian-era New York City and follows the life of Axie Muldoon, a wealthy New Yorker who helps her husband create a successful midwife business.

Per Deadline, the series purports to be “a love story, a family saga, and the confessions of a charismatic and passionate woman who changed the lives of countless others.” That premise, along with the true story tag, is a compelling prospect for the HBO treatment – especially in light of the superb Olive Kitteridge series.

As it stands, Paquin will star and executive produce alongside Moyer via Casm, with Jack Black producing through his Electric Dynamite banner. Your Sister’s Sister and Laggies helmer Lynn Shelton is »
