7.3 Fire In The Hole
Ding dong the witch is dead! No, we haven’t lost the Divine Miss Holly, but this week, True Blood made good on its cast-cull promises, and ripped the ass, sorry heart, out of Dame ‘Unhealthy Obsession with Her Son’ Fortenberry. It seems there is a TV God after all. It wasn’t all good news though – this is the True Blood-verse, and every fantastic event has to be paid for with at least two horrific events and a very large dose of misery. The TV God giveth, and once again, the TV God taketh away...
Yes, in order for us to so thoroughly enjoy the sight of Dame Fortenberry’s still-beating heart glistening on the asphalt, we »
Who knew they were friends? Will Arnett and Don Johnson showed what a small town Hollywood really is when they stepped out together in Portofino, Italy, earlier this week. The two appear to be vacationing there with other pals and loved ones, including Johnson's second wife, Kelley Phleger. The Arrested Development star, 44, and the Miami Vice alum, 64, were photographed strolling through the coastal village on Monday, June 23. Both were dressed casually—Arnett in a green T-shirt and gray shorts, and Johnson in a gray T-shirt, [...] »
Up-and-coming actress Dakota Johnson took a major risk when she signed on to play the female lead Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film adaptation of E L James' bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. The raunchy erotic story has Johnson, 24, playing a young woman in a boundary-pushing S&M relationship—a role her father, actor Don Johnson, has some opinions about. The famed Miami Vice star, 64, has been doing press to promote his new movie Cold in July, and has, of course, been asked about his daughter's recent [...] »
"It's a little bit frosty," she said. When asked with whom, she replied: "Louis."
After Norton asked if things were still off with her and Walsh, she joked: "They were never on!"
Speaking about her return to the ITV show, Cole continued: "There was a lot of grovelling to get me back once Simon was on board. It feels like I've never been away".
Cole also spoke about her highly-publicised bum tattoo, saying: "After I had malaria I created a 'f**k it list' - because life's too short - and the tattoo was on the list.
"It was in the £1000s, »
Crockett and Tubbs, meet Fallon and Higgins. “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon and his announcer Steve Higgins donned pastels to spoof the beloved television cop show “Miami Vice” for an opening sequence. See video: Chris Christie and Jimmy Fallon Present ‘The Evolution of Dad Dancing’ “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” is taping four shows in Orlando starting Monday, and apparently while they were in the general vicinity of Miami they figured they would channel Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas (Crockett and Tubbs). Clearly, these two belong to the city. Even if they're a little bit confused about which city they're in. »

It’s a tough job, rose lovers, but someone has to travel to Mexico to help members of the Bachelor “family” continue their weird and objectively gross inbreeding find “love.” And that someone is Mr. Chris Harrison. As you can see here from this first look at Harrison on the job at Bachelor in Paradise, the dress code for facilitating fairy-tale romance in Mexico — where Bip is shooting — is far more relaxed than it is in America. I have so many thoughts. Click the photo for a full-length version and let’s discuss.

Has your favorite TV show been canceled, gotten stuck in repeats or gone off the air for a long hiatus? You might find solace at your local comicbook store.
The racks these days are still filled with comics about Batman and Captain America, but they also contain their fair share of four-color titles about “Star Trek” and “My Little Pony.” Idw Publishing recently restarted a series about Fox’s “24,” in tandem with the network’s new limited series “24: Live Another Day.” In March, Lion Forge Comics launched a digital comic about an old favorite, NBC’s “Miami Vice,” the latest in a series of comicbook partnerships with the Peacock. The company also produces digital comics based on old series like “Saved by the Bell,” “Punky Brewster” and “Airwolf.”
Networks have long adopted popular comicbook tales for the smallscreen, as made plain by series that range from 1978’s “The Incredible »

Gotta love the 80s.
“Ping Pong Summer” is a good tribute movie to those moviegoers who remember growing up in the 80s. It’s about a teenager who spends a summer at the beach in Ocean City in 1985. It combines the tributes of arcade games, young teen love, hip hop and of course—ping pong.
Latino-Review had an extended exclusive phone interview with director Michael Tully. We discussed in significant detail about the production, the actors, the music and the love of the 1980s.
“Ping Pong Summer” is currently in limited release in certain theaters and also available on VOD.
Read the interview below.

The singer, who announced her music comeback this week, will feature on the BBC chat show on Friday, June 20.
Cheryl will release 'Crazy Stupid Love' in the UK on July 20 as the first cut to be lifted from her forthcoming fourth studio album.
"I can't remember being so excited to be releasing new music," she said. "After taking some time out I feel brand new and I had such a special time making this record."

Apparently, Dakota Johnson's dad, actor Don Johnson, has some pretty strong opinions when it comes to legalizing drugs. During an appearance on HuffPostLive on Thursday, the 65-year-old Miami Vice star said that America should "legalize every drug and tax it"—with no exceptions. Asked whether that includes class A drugs such as heroin, the actor didn't blink an eye before he responded, "Absolutely." As for the reason behind his controversial stance on the legalization of drugs? Let's take a closer look. "When we privatize prisons we've turned it into a business," the actor told host Ricky Camilleri. "And so when you turn it into a business you need »
It’s official – Jim Mickle is hastily becoming one of my favorite quasi-independent filmmakers. Grabbing my attention with Stake Land and asserting his gritty dominance with We Are What We Are, I immediately recognized an impressive, instinctual knack for down-and-dirty, no-frills cinema. Horror can distract with gnarly vampires, hungry cannibals, religious exploitation, and gore galore – something Mickle already delivered – but a thriller requires more finesse. Mysteries must unravel, tension must hold, and emotional notes can’t rely on monsters or mayhem, but Mickle transitions well into this twisted story of revenge, love, and good old Southern justice. Looks like Cold In July makes the director three for three in my book – a confident three for three.

Twenty years ago today, Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein unveiled the filmmaker’s sophomore movie — an ambitious anthology of crime stories, all interconnected and metatextualized — at a late Saturday night screening at the Cannes Film Festival. A little over three hours later, as the crowd staggered out of the Palais des Festivals, they knew they had an audience favorite on their hands. Soon, they would be able to add Palme d’Or winner, Best Picture Oscar nominee, the first indie film to break the $100 million mark, a gamechanger and a modern classic to the list. »
If you missed the PBS' exploration of trailblazing moments of TV history, featuring a lineup that included an episode titled Breaking Barriers, which traces the history of people of color on American television (it aired last week Tuesday), you can watch it right now, as PBS has made the entire series available online. It's all part of the 4th season of the Emmy-nominated PBS series, Pioneers Of Television. Breaking Barriers features the mid-1960s breakthroughs of African Americans Diahann Carroll (Julia) and Bill Cosby (I Spy), as well as Latino landmarks, ranging from I Love Lucy with Desi Arnaz, to Miami Vice with Edward James Olmos.

Offering inside stories from some of America’s most beloved television stars, the episode includes new interviews with stars of the time, »

I sadly can't say that I've kept fully abreast of Henry G. Sanders' acting career, since his star-turn in Charles Burnett's 1979 magnum opus Killer Of Sheep; But, a glance at his IMDb resume informs me that he's certainly been busy over the the years, albeit in what would be described as *bit* parts in TV and film projects - small screen classics like Hill Street Blues, Diff'rent Strokes, Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice, Cagney & Lacey, Matlock, L.A. Law, and Grey's Anatomy, most recently, and on the big screen in Bull Durham, the American remake of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless, and, just last year, the Jackie Robinson bio 42. He often played unnamed stock characters »

They conceive the characters, write or co-write the scripts, set the pace and provide the vision for the TV programs you know and love. They're called showrunners, and they are the designated auteurs of the boob-tube renaissance still in progress. Writer-producers such as Joss Whedon, Shonda Rhimes, Matthew Weiner, Vince Gilligan, and the holy trinity of Davids — Chase, Milch and Simon — have earned profile pieces and graced magazine covers, becoming celebrities in their own right. They are to modern television what film directors were to the New Hollywood of the »

A year ago, little-known writer-director-cinematographer Jeremy Saulnier was about to unveil his second feature, a low-budget revenge thriller called Blue Ruin, as part of Directors' Fortnight, a scrappy under-the-radar festival that's concurrently held down the street from the much-glitzier galas in Cannes. The Virginia native had worked on various aspects of others' below-the-radar films; his directorial debut, a Brooklyn-based horror movie called Murder Party (the tagline: "Everybody Dies….") won prizes at festivals in Canada and Colorado, then quietly disappeared. Before Saulnier made his new film, which charts the dark odyssey »
Joel Surnow's directorial debut, “Small Time,” drives into select theaters Friday. The sweet, coming-of-age tale stars Christopher Meloni as a struggling car salesman and Devon Bostick as his son, who is eager to join the family business despite his mother's wishes that he attend college. Dean Norris of “Breaking Bad” fame co-stars as Meloni's business partner and a surrogate uncle of sorts to Bostick's character. Surnow is a veteran TV scribe who got his start writing for “St. Elsewhere,” “The Equalizer,” “Miami Vice,” “The Commish” and “La Femme Nikita.” More recently, he's known for executive producing “The Kennedys” and “24,” the. »
