Zap2it: You play former Lapd Chief William H. Parker in the 1940s TNT drama "Mob City." What's your take on him?
Neal McDonough: He's such a good-natured person. He's just this guy from South Dakota that came to Los Angeles for high school, didn't really fit in, became a cop. He policed the streets, and he loved the city. Then he went off to Normandy (during World War II) when he was well into his 30s, and that's where he became great friends with Buck Compton.
Zap2it: Wait, is that the same Army officer Lynn "Buck" Compton you played in the HBO WWII miniseries "Band of Brothers"?
Neal McDonough: I know, exactly. So those guys, they were very tight because they were in Normandy together, police academy together and everything else.
Zap2it: Compton passed away on Feb. 25, 2012, at the age of 90. Did he know you were playing Parker? »

"The Walking Dead" will be welcoming two more characters into the Governor's storyline in the upcoming episode, "Dead Weight." Though they're new to the AMC zombie series, viewers will likely recognize the two actors from their previous TV roles.
Both new cast members can be seen in the above Zap2it exclusive photo. Kirk Acevedo, best known for his roles in "Fringe," "Band of Brothers" and "Oz," plays Mitch (left) in the new episode. Joining him is "Dollhouse" and "Vegas" alum Enver Gjokaj as Pete (right).
It's unclear what role they play exactly, but it seems likely they have joined with the Governor's men after they parted ways with the former villain. Standing behind the two men are the Governor's newfound family that he became close with in last week's "Live Bait."
The synopsis for "Dead Weight" reads: "A new and scary chapter is unfolding at a camp outside the prison. »
Murphy said that the channel is "actively looking" for a series that could raise the bar for British television.
In a blog about the future of Sky's entertainment offering, he said: "We've been talking a lot about how we can supersize what we do. Of course Sky is fundamentally different to other broadcasters because of its relationship with its viewers. When you pay for something, your expectations are higher.
"As a company, we are in service of our customers. We deliver what they want - and they tell us they want something different and special.
"So as part of that vision, we are now actively looking for a new drama commission of real scale and huge ambition. »

If you aren’t making any mistakes,
it’s a sure sign you’re playing it too safe.
By the end of the 1980s, HBO’s nightmarish headlong collision with The Wall in 1984 was just that; a bad dream fading over time. Even during the tough days, the company had remained a money-maker, and although it was taking more effort and cash to bag subscribers, the service was growing again, HBO original programming was racking up awards and acclaim, and in subscriber homes, the channel was kicking broadcast network ass. During the 1990-91 television season, the service beat all three major networks during Saturday and Sunday prime time hours. The good times were back.
Which did not change the underlying, immutable fact, and the greatest lesson to come out of that horrifying 1984 flatline: that the domestic cable universe was finite. Sooner or later, HBO was bound to hit another wall. »

“Burn Notice” creator Matt Nix has found the lead actor for his next USA Network project, “Complications.” Jason O'Mara has been cast as John Ellis, an emergency room doctor whose life and career are slowly falling apart in the wake of a family tragedy. Currently recurring on CBS’s “The Good Wife, O’Mara last starred on the short-lived CBS drama, “Vegas.” He also starred on Fox’s “Terra Nova,” and cult favorite, ABC’s “Life on Mars.” Some will remember him from HBO’s “Band of Brothers.” Also read: USA Pulls ‘It Takes a Choir’ at 11th Hour, »

Well it finally happened; Now TV added a superb catch up/live option for their TV channels including Sky Atlantic, Living, Fox and even UK Gold! So now for just £4.99 a month you can get shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Hannibal and Eastbound and Down as they happen or whenever you want.
Considering that the movies package is now just £8.99 a month and the TV is £4.99 on top of this, it becomes clear that this is probably going to place them as the major contender now and Lovefilm/Amazon and Netflix need to start cranking out those exclusive series’ with major names pretty fast.
The term “All sewn up” comes to mind.

Produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, the acclaimed companion series to Band Of Brothers follows three Us marines as they brave the South East Pacific war zone in World War II. This opening episode introduces us to the men following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. While Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale) enlists straight away and serving Marine Sergeant John Basilone (Jon Seda) learns that he is to be plunged into the heart of the Pacific Operation, Alabama teenager Eugene Sledge (Joseph Mazzello) is devastated to hear that he will not be allowed to join the cause. »
Recently, we spoke with Eve Online Creative Director Torfi Frans Olafsson about the Eve new comic series. Here’s the interview.
What was role with Eve over the past 10 years and with the upcoming comic series?
Torfi Frans Olafsson: I’m one of the original guys of the Eve team, one of the first 7 or so working on Eve since 1999. I was lead artist, senior producer and right now I am the creative director for the IP. I work on broadening out the IP to more than just computer games, which involves comic books, source books and potential TV series.
How did you guys decide on which stories to use from the “True Stories of The First Decade” submissions?
Tfo: As Eve was celebrating its 10 year anniversary, we looked back and thought about would be the most interesting topic to talk about in a comic book or TV series. It »

Interview Luke Savage 1 Nov 2013 - 06:22
A chat with the directors of a new documentary charting the career of filmmaker John Milius...
"Are you ready for your round-table with Joey and Zak?"
"Yes, I am, lovely PR person", is my instant reply. Yes, I am. Although that second half is me adding poetic license here. I'm too British to go full-out on the compliments this early into a relationship.
That exchange of pleasantries heralds a welcome interview with directors Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson. They're in town to talk about their documentary Milius, charting the incredible life and career of filmmaker John Milius. It's a very good documentary. So good that I'm not concerned at having to share them with three other interviewers.
And it's so good that I don't mind being a little deflated when I finally get into my first round-table interview. Because there's no table. Nothing. Just »
Now in its fourth season, the CBS police drama has cast Kirk Acevedo as the brother of Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) -- NYPD detective Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) partner -- in the Friday, Nov. 22, episode, Zap2it has learned exclusively. His sudden reappearance is guaranteed to make things less than comfortable for his sister.
They have a strained relationship to begin with, since he's a longtime criminal. He's trying to leave that life behind, but a "wrong place, wrong time" situation keeps him there, likely putting an added strain on Maria's camaraderie with justice-devoted Danny as she struggles with professional duty vs. family loyalty.
Homeland star Damian Lewis is finalizing a deal to star opposite Nicole Kidman in Werner Herzog's Queen of the Desert, according to Deadline. Lewis would play Lieutenant Colonel Charles Doughty-Wylie, an unhappy British war hero who has a torrid affair with archeologist, cartographer, writer, and political attache Gertrude Bell (Kidman) until his death in World War I. Lewis played a Civil War general in To Appomattox, a World War II soldier in Band of Brothers, and of course plays a former Marine on Homeland. He just has a military-ish face, apparently. »

The Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning British actor Damian Lewis is best known for his roles in popular series Band Of Brothers and Homeland, and much less so for his part in the dreadful and blasphemous (to the source material) Stormbreaker. That comment wasn’t too relevant, but I found my old Stormbreaker DVD yesterday and nearly cried from the memories. It’s now in a pile ready to go to the charity shop, from where some poor sod will purchase it and regret the decision for life. But at least I’ll be rid of it.
Random tangent aside, the brilliant Damian Lewis is set to star opposite Nicole Kidman in Queen Of The Desert, directed by Werner Herzog (Bad Lieutenant). The true-story film follows Kidman as archaeologist, writer and spy Gertrude Bell who, in the early 20th century, traveled throughout the Middle East and became an influential political officer in modern Iraq. »

Directed by Peter Landesman.
John F. Kennedy’s assassination is a moment in history shrouded in conspiracy theories. Parkland aims to recreate the three days – beginning with the day the President was shot – through to the immediate aftermath and death of JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald. Well-documented and thoroughly researched, Parkland is the directorial-debut of Peter Landesman - a journalist himself seeking to ignore the myth and focus on the reality. ‘Parkland’ itself is the hospital Kennedy died within – and where, days later, Oswald was rushed to. Clearly capitalising on an intriguing and important story, Parkland fails to match the cinematic scale of the event. »

Four years of shows to include Jeremy Paxman documentary and children's programmes, plus daily Radio 4 drama
The BBC has unveiled its most ambitious television season ever – 130 programmes spanning 2,500 hours – that will air over four years to mark the centenary of the first world war.
The season is designed to match the timespan of the 1914-18 war, and include a daily BBC Radio 4 drama.

A movie is hardly epic, poignant, or heroic if it doesn't star Tom Hanks, an actor we've seen fight in wars, survive on an island, and even journey to space.
This week, in Paul Greengrass's "Captain Phillips," Hanks stars as the eponymous character who gets taken hostage by Somali pirates. The intense drama is based on the real-life hijacking of the Maersk Alabama ship off the coast of Africa in 2002.
While we've seen many sides of the beloved Oscar-winning actor on screen, there are probably a handful of things you didn't know about the man. From his relation to a famous Us president to his favorite collector's item, check out these facts about Tom Hanks that you may not know.
1. Hanks has hosted "Saturday Night Live" eight times, making hims a member of the Five-Timers Club, a term which was coined in a sketch during Hanks' fifth time hosting. »

As Homeland returns to our screens, the actor talks about failure, family, being caned at Eton – and his future on the hit TV show
For five months of the year, Damian Lewis lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, where his hit TV series Homeland is filmed and where, after taking a break between seasons, he goes through the same acclimatisation routine. "The first week you think: I may never go home, this is amazing. The second week, you think: right, now I can get over my jet lag, this is really good fun. And then, after the second week, it's a disaster. I have kids and a wife; you spend a lot of the time quite homesick."
He is at home in London, gearing up for last weekend's UK launch of Homeland season three, which has some ground to make up after a disappointing second season. Lewis is at the zenith of his fame, »
