Set Visit: The Russo Brothers bring gritty action to 'Captain America 2'

6 March 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Community" and "Arrested Development" may seem like a far cry from the souped-up blockbuster action of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but for the sibling directing team of Mark and Anthony Russo, there's less of a difference that you might think. The duo -- best known for directing and producing those aforementioned TV comedies -- called the shots on the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." The Russos discussed the Marvel sequel on a visit to the film's L.A. set last fall, where they were directing a piece of a big action scene featuring Cap (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).  As comic book fans themselves, getting the call from Marvel exec Kevin Feige was a dream come true. "Winter Soldier" departs from 2011's "Captain America" The First Avenger" in several significant ways, especially its darker tone, inspired by '70s political thrillers.  After directing the George Clooney indie comedy »

Stage and screen actor best known for his roles in Only Fools and Horses, The Vicar of Dibley and Harry Potter

The talented and idiosyncratic character actor Roger Lloyd Pack, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 69, achieved national recognition, and huge popularity, as Colin "Trigger" Ball, the lugubrious Peckham road sweeper in John Sullivan's brilliantly acted comedy series Only Fools and Horses. He appeared alongside David Jason's Del Boy and Nicholas Lyndhurst's "plonker" Rodney from 1981 for 10 years, with many a seasonal "special" for another decade.

This success cemented a career in which, up to that point, he had played important roles at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and the Almeida theatre in north London – he was a notably anguished Rosmer in Ibsen's Rosmersholm at the National in 1987, opposite Suzanne Bertish – without recognition any wider than usually appreciative reviews.

His enhanced status led to another »
