Joanna Scanlan and Will Mellor for "anarchic" new Channel 4 cop drama

1 August 2014 3:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Joanna Scanlan and Will Mellor will star in Channel 4's "anarchic" new cop drama No Offence.

The eight-part series, from Shameless writer Paul Abbott, will follow an unorthodox team of cops who must hunt down a serial killer.

Alexandra Roach (Utopia), Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Colin Salmon (Arrow) and Paul Ritter (Friday Night Dinner) have also joined the cast.

The team is led by the unquestionably unhinged Di Vivienne Deering (Scanlan), with the impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) and recently promoted DS Joy Freers (Roach) serving as her right-hand women.

Abbott said: "No Offence is a precinct cop drama. It's also one of the funniest things I've ever been allowed to put together. It doesn't look like anything else.

"No Offence's cake mix is as bipolar as they get - it lurches from jet black laugh-out-loud, into fragile material on the turn of a sixpence.

"Writing three strong female leads is one thing. »

Review: '24: Live Another Day' - '8:00 Pm - 9:00 Pm'

1 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's "24: Live Another Day" coming up just as soon as this is me being courteous... I suppose I have to give credit to the "Live Another Day" creative team for squeezing a half season's worth of plot twists into these last few episodes, as if they want to give us all the story beats of a traditional "24" year even though they have only 12 episodes to play with. So Adrian Cross is dispatched with quickly — probably for the best, since the whole "What if Julian Assange was really a supervillain?" twist was a lot less interesting than "Julian Assange and Jack Bauer reluctantly learn to work together" — and our old friend Cheng returns with a far more ambitious plan that could just kickstart World War III. And because it's a familiar "24" big bad, the show can get away with introducing him so quickly. We know what »

Colin Salmon: 'It's hard to get roles in the UK'

21 May 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Colin Salmon has revealed that he has found it hard to get acting roles in the UK.

The British actor - who has recently appeared in Us shows 24: Live Another Day and Arrow - explained why many UK stars have chosen to find work in America.

He told ITV's Loose Women: "It's been really hard here in Britain for actors and therefore we've had to up our game.

"I think we have incredible voice coaches now because it's all muscle memory. We are trained a different way. It's not like we're imagining it, we know, we're specific. We know the areas."

He continued: "I've worked with Cicely Berry from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the best voice coach in the world, and Paul Robeson, so we have all the backstory.

"You've got the young actors - I'm about to do Musketeers - and the young guys on that, the discipline level is another level. »

24: Live Another Day aired on Sky1 at the same time as its premiere on Fox in the Us last night (May 5).

Kiefer Sutherland's return as Jack Bauer thrilled an average overnight audience of 10,800 at 1am, with a share of 0.5%.

Critics' reactions to the double-bill episode have been largely positive overnight.

Season premiere review: '24: Live Another Day' - '11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m./12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m.'

5 May 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack Bauer is back. I published an advance review of the "24: Live Another Day" premiere this morning, and I have some spoiler-y thoughts on these first two episodes coming up just as soon as we sit the whole thing out in Greenland... My plan is to cover "Live Another Day" weekly, depending on what travel and summer vacation allows, but I haven't yet decided whether it'll be full-fledged reviews, short talkbacks to prompt discussion, or something in between. But this is definitely an experiment worth discussing. And since I wrote so much about these two episodes this morning, let's go straight to the bullet points:  * The premiere does a very good job of both reintroducing Jack while not letting him overshadow the introduction of a host of new characters. Jack gets to kick ass early, then is silent for half the episode, because everyone trusts Kiefer Sutherland to have »

24 People You Didn’t Know Were In 24

21 March 2014 12:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s just a few months now until Jack Bauer will return to television screens after a four year absence in 24: Live Another Day, a miniseries continuation of the show that aired for eight seasons across a nine year period on the Fox network. Here, the former CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) agent will be joined in a London-set story by the ever-dependent Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), his former love Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), her father, Secretary of Defence turned President James Heller (William Devane) and a collection of new characters played by the likes of Chuck’s Yvonne Strahovski, Game of ThronesMichelle Fairley, Colin Salmon and even Stephen Fry as the Prime Minister.

Whilst this new iteration will drop the series’ most notable quirk – events being shown in real time over a twenty four hour period – it will presumably be as manic and unpredictable as its predecessor, »

Latest Teaser Trailer For 24: Live Another Day

9 March 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

London clearly hasn’t been through enough in the last few years, despite being blown up, carved up, beaten up and driven through with wild abandon.

Welcome to the expanded teaser trailer for new “limited series” 24: Live Another Day. The UK-set adventure finds Jack – still a fugitive from the American authorities, who think he’s a traitor – rocking up in London when he learns that the U.S. President (William Devane), on a diplomatic visit, is under threat from an assassination plot. Cue running around, shouting “Damnit!” shooting people, blowing stuff up… Also known as business as usual from the Bauer School Of Getting Stuff Done.Fellow series veterans Mary Lynn Rajskub and Kim Raver are back, »

'Arrow's' Colin Salmon clocks in for Fox's '24' revival

4 February 2014 4:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) "24: Live Another Day" has added yet another notable name to its ever-growing cast: "Arrow" alum Colin Salmon. Salmon, perhaps best known for his appearances in the "James Bond" films and his memorable death-by-laser-net in the first "Resident Evil" film, will join the new iteration of "24" as General Coburn, described by Deadline as “an intelligent, powerful and fiercely loyal man who does not suffer fools no matter what rank.” Something tells us Coburn won’t suffer Jack Bauer lightly — unless he’s suffering at Bauer’s hands, which isn’t an unlikely scenario, given how "24" normally plays out.

'Arrow's' Colin Salmon cast in '24: Live Another Day'

3 February 2014 3:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Walter Steele might be too busy for much of an "Arrow" return. That's because actor Colin Salmon has been cast in "24: Live Another Day."

As reported first by Deadline, Salmon will play General Coburn, described as intelligent, fiercely loyal and powerful. He also isn't someone to accept foolishness. That should make Coburn an excellent foil/ally/enemy for Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer.

In addition to his recurring role on "Arrow," Salmon has appeared on "Strike Back" and "Law and Order: UK."

Set four years after the "24" series finale, "24: Live Another Day" finds Bauer a fugitive from justice, dealing with terrorism and other violent things in London. It is set to premiere on Fox on May 5; the first teasers aired Sunday (Feb. 2) during the Super Bowl.

Colin Salmon Joins 24: Live Another Day

3 February 2014 12:36 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’ve made no secret of our appreciation for underserved character actor Colin Salmon, a man we’ve praised in the past as a potential Bond. He’s not playing an action man agent in his next gig, but he will be appearing alongside one – with hopes that he’ll also get his moment to shine – given he’s nabbed a role in 24: Live Another Day.The new “event series” (the fancy name for a 12-episode miniseries) spins off from the TV drama starring Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), the world’s most put-upon, time-crunched warrior in the fight against global terrorism. This time, it’s four years since the series ended, with Jack a fugitive still involved in fighting bad guys. As you’ll have learned from previous reports and that explosive Super Bowl trailer, he’ll be dealing with all of that in good old London town.Salmon, »
