Robert Loggia at play with Tom Hanks in Big

Robert Loggia has died at the age of 85 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. The Italian-American son of a shoemaker, he was famous for his tough guy performances in films like Scarface, Lost Highway and Prizzi's Honor, but was a versatile character actor who also appeared in a range of very different roles, including that of the avuncular toy company head honcho in Big, alongside Tom Hanks. He played Richard Gere's father in An Officer And A Gentlemen, and was a general charged with saving the world from the alien menace in Independence Day.

Alongside his film career, Loggia produced a great volume of television work, appearing in much-loved series like Gunsmoke!, Starsky And Hutch, Rawhide, Little House On The Prairie, Hawaii Five-0 and The Sopranos. He is one of few actors to have gone up against both Quincy Me and Columbo. »

River review – pairing personal demons with a peculiar police partnership

13 October 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Creator Abi Morgan brings Nordic noir to this new crime drama with Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård and an interesting twist

Police partnerships – you know, Starsky and Hutch, Cagney and Lacey, etc – are always interesting. Because of the nature of the work, because they can play off each other, interact and be different.

Jackie “Stevie” Stevenson and John River of River (BBC1) are certainly different. She’s young, fun and worldly, likes holidays and singing along to 70s disco classics in the car (love that Tina Charles scene, both of them and his lonely karaoke moment later). He’s a bookish Beatles man and a workaholic, troubled and world-weary.

'Godfather' Star Alex Rocco Passes Away at Age 79

20 July 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor Alex Rocco, best known for playing mobster Moe Green in the 1972 classic The Godfather, passed away on Saturday in his Studio City, California home at the age of 79. The actor's stepson, Sean Doyle, confirmed to The Los Angeles Times that the actor passed away after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. The actor's long career spanned 50 years, with over 150 TV and film credits.

Alex Rocco was born Alessandro Federico Petricone Jr. in Boston, who caught the acting bug at the age of 30, when he took an acting class to meet women. After moving to Los Angeles, he took a class taught by Leonard Nimoy, who promptly kicked him out because he couldn't understand his thick Boston accent. He then enrolled in a speech class which transformed his Boston accent with a New York accent, which Leonard Nimoy said he could work with. He made his acting debut with the 1965 Russ Meyer film Motorpsycho! »

True Detective Is Way Better Mashed Up With Starsky and Hutch

13 July 2015 6:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Boy, howdy, there really isn't anything to smile about in this season of True Detective, eh? Its vision of Southern California is pretty much wall-to-wall darkness. But as the saying goes, it's better to light a candle than curse the darkness — so we lit a candle by throwing a bunch of True Detective footage in a blender. This week's installment of Vulture Remix reimagines the show as a cheesy, buoyant '70s cop show. Specifically, ABC's iconic Starsky and Hutch. Consider it the world we deserve. Be sure to also check out our last Vulture Remix: Ant-Man as a 1950's horror movie. »

The "CHiPS" Movie To Be R-Rated

5 July 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

These days when old 'light entertainment' style 1970s and 1980s TV shows come to the big screen, we're used to them being parodies (ala "Starsky and Hutch," "The Dukes of Hazzard," "21 Jump Street"). When the big screen adaptation of "CHiPs" was announced, many widely assumed it would adopt a similar tone.

Turns out that's not the case. Michael Pena, who will take on Erik Estrada's role of Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello from the original series, tells Collider that the new film will play things serious:

It's more like a Lethal Weapon where there's a lot of action and what we wanted to do is if there's any comedy that we do, it's not like one-liners here and there, like we're the guys always being stand-up comedians. It's almost like you lose a little bit of the plotline whenever you're off doing your own comedy thing, so we're focusing a little more on the plot, »

Norman Horowitz, Syndication Executive at MGM and Columbia, Dies at 82

18 June 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Norman Horowitz, a colorful and outspoken syndication executive who headed that area at MGM/UA, Columbia Pictures Television and Polygram, died Tuesday at his home in Beverly Hills after a heart attack. He was 82.

Horowitz served as president-ceo of MGM/UA Telecommunications, following stints at Columbia, CBS/Viacom and founding the TV unit at Polygram. He was responsible for selling numerous shows into syndication, from firstrun offerings to lucrative reruns of programs like “Barney Miller,” “Starsky and Hutch” and “Soap.”

In one of his favorite anecdotes, Horowitz saw the pilot to “Barney Miller” after producer Danny Arnold had sold it to ABC, acquiring the distribution rights for about $100,000. The project returned millions over the years to the studio.

Known for his outspokenness and sense of humor, Horowitz would often pitch a show to stations by saying he was confident it would be a huge hit, “unless it isn’t.”

11 June 2015 3:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The actor Ron Moody, who played Fagin in the movie “Oliver!,” has died at the age of 91.

The film received 11 Oscar nomination and took home six statuettes, including for film and director for Carol Reed.

Moody first appeared as Fagin in Lionel Bart’s West End stage adaptation in 1960, and won a Tony when he returned to the role for a Broadway revival in 1984.

The Interceptor: Is BBC One's new thiller a blockbuster or a misfire?

10 June 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tonight (June 9), BBC One launched The Interceptor - its new action thriller following the maverick Ash (Ot Fagbenle) as he and his team work to bring down a complex criminal network.

Fagbenle has compared the show to vintage TV classics like Starsky & Hutch and Kojak - comments echoed by writer Tony Saint, who also named The Professionals as an inspiration.

"It's got action in it, it's got an element of humour in it - and it's got a double-act at the heart, so there's a buddy element to it, which harks back to classics like The Professionals and Starsky and Hutch," said Saint.

"Kojak is another one - I think the balance between action and peril and fun, that's one of the big things [we tried to emulate]."

But was The Interceptor a modern classic, or a failed attempt to recapture past glories? Digital Spy wants your thoughts on the series.

BBC One's new series The Interceptor: The Professionals for 2015?

3 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Interceptor is BBC One's attempt to emulate classic shows like The Professionals, says creator Tony Saint.

Saint revealed at a recent press screening that his new crime thriller was inspired by the '70s shows he'd enjoyed as a boy.

"It's got action in it, it's got an element of humour in it - and it's got a double-act at the heart, so there's a buddy element to it, which harks back to classics like The Professionals and Starsky and Hutch," he said.

"Kojak is another one - I think the balance between action and peril and fun, that's one of the big things [we tried to emulate]."

Saint added that The Interceptor is designed to have a "broad appeal" and target a wide range of ages.

"It'd be great to bring a younger audience to the show," he said. "By design, it's not excessively violent, the bad language is kept to »
