'Arbitrage' Blu-ray: Richard Gere 'did something special' says director Nicholas Jarecki -- Exclusive Video

21 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It really can’t be true, can it? Richard Gere has never been nominated for an Oscar? Really? Let’s check again. For Chicago, surely. Nope. Officer and a Gentleman? Nope. Unfaithful, The Hoax, Primal Fear? Eh-eh. Damn… Dude’s due.

With Arbitrage, Gere might finally land that elusive nomination. In the Sundance hit from first-time writer/director Nicholas Jarecki, Gere plays a Bernie Madoff type who needs to unload his financial company before Wall Street figures out he’s short $412 million. It’s a subtle, daring performance, but also one that reminds you how consistently remarkable the 63-year-old has been for more than 35 years, »

19 September 2012 2:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It's not exactly a chance to see what fate befell his "The Sopranos" character post-"Don't Stop Believin'," but the prospect of getting to see more James Gandolfini on HBO can only be a good thing. Deadline reports that Gandolfini has been cast in a lead role in the pilot for "Criminal Justice," written by Richard Price ("Lush Life," "The Color Of Money"), to be directed by Steven Zaillian ("Gangs of New York," "Schindler’s List") and slated to shoot this fall. According to Deadline, "Criminal Justice" is a crime drama set in New York and loosely based on Peter Moffat's 2006 BBC series of the same name. Rizwan Ahmed ("Four Lions"), Bill Camp ("Compliance"), Peyman Moadi and Poorna Jagannathan are also in the cast. The British version of the show was made up of two season, each five episode long and broadcast over successive nights,...

Anniversaries: Joe Henderson (1937-2001) Born 75 Years Ago

24 April 2012 3:11 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Joe Henderson always had the respect of fellow musicians and hardcore jazz fanatics, but for a long time it seemed the closest he'd get to fame was his brief stint in Blood, Sweat & Tears (years later he reminisced, in one of my favorite interviews, about how that short period was when sax companies wanted his endorsement and gave him free horns). Hardly fair considering that he spent a quarter century ranked among the top three tenor saxophonists alive, along with Rollins and Shorter. Then, almost miraculously, Verve put together a masterful production/promotion campaign that made him more famous in his last decade than he'd ever been before. Alas, emphysema took him at age 64, but he'd managed to leave an impressive legacy with nary a misstep -- he never made a bad album, and his appearance on anyone else's album was always a mark of quality.

TV Review: CBS’s ‘NYC 22’ is TV District That Feels Too Familiar

15 April 2012 8:20 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “NYC 22” reminds me of a cover song by a really strong bar band. You can admire the craftsmanship. It doesn’t hit any wrong notes. And it reminds you of what you like about the original. But it can’t replace it. “NYC 22” is so derivative of other programs that it is constantly fighting with itself because it exposes its own flaws through the comparison. It feels like “NYPD Blue” and “Southland,” but those are the brilliant originals. This is the cover version.

TV Rating: 3.0/5.0

The cast of “NYC 22” is a strong one but the more important voice is behind the scenes as the show was created by the brilliant Richard Price, the author of the novels “Clockers,” “Samaritan,” “Lush Life,” and more, as well as one of the main writers of “The Wire.” (Read and see everything in the previous sentence…now.)

Leelee Sobieski Convincing in CBS Drama NYC 22 - Hunger Games Adds Diversity to Wes Bentley Credits

21 March 2012 3:06 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Leelee Sobieski certainly goes against type in her first regular series role, playing an Iraq War MP turned tough-cookie rookie cop in CBS's "NYC 22" police drama, which debuts April 15. She's convincing, especially when she gets a juvenile thug in an armlock to make sure he understands the importance of treating her with respect. But the actress recalls that as soon as the director called "cut" in that scene, she was saying, "I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" "He was really so cute -- like a little angel kid. It's very hard when you have to do some stuff like that. I'm always going around giving everyone hugs," admits Leelee. She tells us she didn't have to think twice about taking the role. Executive producers Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal were a lure, "of course." Also, "I've always loved Richard Price's writing," she says of the esteemed author, whose credits »

18 March 2012 11:20 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Beck/Smith

HollywoodNews.com:Leelee Sobieski certainly goes against type in her first-ever regular series role — playing an Iraq War MP-turned-tough cookie rookie cop in CBS’s April 15-debuting “NYC 22″ police drama. She’s convincing, especially in moments like when she gets a juvenile thug in an armlock to make sure he understands the importance of treating her with respect. But as soon as the director called “Cut” in that scene, she was saying “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” the actress recalls.

“He was really so cute — like a little angel kid. It’s very hard when you have to do some stuff like that. I’m always going around giving everyone hugs,” admits Leelee.

She tells us she didn’t have to think twice about taking the role. Executive producers Robert DeNiro and Jane Rosenthal were a lure, “of course.” Also, “I’ve always loved Richard Price’s writing, »
