‘Alias’ Reunion, ‘Parks and Recreation’ Screening Party Highlight New Additions to Atx Television Festival

3 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you’ve been missing Sydney Bristow, better book a ticket to Austin, TX. The Atx Television Festival announced today it will be hosting an “Alias” writers’ room reunion featuring many of the show’s long-time scribes, including Ken Olin, Lawrence Trilling, Sarah Caplan, Monica Breen, Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, and Josh Appelbaum.

Creator J.J. Abrams has yet to be confirmed, but additional panelists will be announced at a later date. Last year, the Atx Festival hosted a writers’ room reunion for “The O.C.” that included creator Josh Schwartz.

Also announced this afternoon was a “Parks and Recreation” community screening. For the first five seasons of the festival, the Austin-based event celebrated an Austin-based show: “Friday Night Lights.” But last year marked the final tailgate party / community screening for the beloved series, and festival programmers found a more than fitting replacement in “Parks and Recreation.”

Dominic West Will Play Lara Croft's Dad In The Tomb Raider Reboot

28 January 2017 | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Today we learned that one my favorite television actors, Dominic West, is joining the cast of the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise. You probably remember him best from The Wire, where he played Jimmy McNulty, the protagonist of the show and a character with many personal and intriguing demons. He stamped his mark on society with this character because The Wire is considered one of the best written shows of all time, and the last time I remember West was in the only decent Punisher movie ever made where he played the iconic Jigsaw.

According to THR, West will be playing Lord Richard Croft, the father of Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. This role was originally played by Jon Voight in the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movies a decade ago. We know Voight is Jolie's father in "real life," and while West can't claim that over the current »

24 January 2017 5:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its VOD and DVD release this March, a trailer has arrived online for the new action thriller Check Point, which sees WWE star Bill Goldberg starring alongside Kenny Johnson (The Shield), William Forsythe (Boardwalk Empire), Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) and the late Ricky Harris (Everybody Hates Chris) in his final screen role.

Check Point follows a local vagrant (Johnson) who discovers a ‘sleeper cell’ home-grown Terrorist plot in a small town where everyone knows each other, or so they thought. With the help of his best friend (Goldberg), he must gather a team of unlikely heroes to rise up to protect their country.  In Ricky Harris’ last film role, the late actor played a former U.S. Army veteran who helps foil the plot to attack the U.S. government. The film touches on difficult topics, such as war veterans and Ptsd.

'Six': TV Review

18 January 2017 7:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Joe Manganiello was originally set to star in History's Six, but he was forced out due to a medical issue which, thankfully, has apparently been resolved. Surely one would never call this the "best thing to happen" to the eight-episode military thriller, but from the safety of Manganiello's renewed health, it must be said that his replacement Walton Goggins is easily the best reason to watch Six, a strange mixture of fact and fiction that never consistently stays on the right side of the line between patriotism and jingoism.

It isn't that Justified and The Shield veteran Goggins is necessarily »

TV Review: ‘Six’ on History

17 January 2017 9:24 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Six,” History’s scripted drama about special-forces soldiers, has a lot in common with its characters, who often have a clarity of purpose in the field that they struggle to find in other arenas. The show’s directors are adept at shooting action, and when the men of Seal Team Six are on missions and in other high-risk situations, their motivations and actions are usually rendered with taut energy and fluid economy.

It’s when the narrative returns to the home front, or laboriously stitches together its overarching terrorism plot, that the show feels most predictable. Just as several of the soldiers excel in the field even as they flounder in their personal lives, “Six” works best as a portrait of military camaraderie and the cohesiveness of a unit under pressure. When it’s observing the rituals and training processes that turn these men into the warrior elite, or depicting the fraying of the tight-knit team’s »

Watch the Trailer for Ricky Harris’ Final Film Check Point — as Costars Pay Tribute to Late Comedian

16 January 2017 12:38 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Comedian Ricky Harris‘ last film, Check Point, finally has a trailer, and for his costars, it couldn’t be more bittersweet.

Harris, who died of a heart attack in December at the age of 54, left an indelible impression on everyone he met, actor William Forsythe tells People.

“He had this way about him — such humility,” he says of his costar. “We met on set and he came over and was so respectful. The way he presented himself was impressive. We had an instant bond — it took place right there on camera.”

Forsythe stars as The Sheriff in the upcoming film »

12 January 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” may focus on two of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, but it also highlights the struggle that actresses have trying to find work as they age into an industry that favors the young.

At the Television Critics Association panel for the series on Thursday, creator Ryan Murphy acknowledged that despite the campier aspects of the feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and their collaboration on “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,”  the series would also focus on the more emotional aspects of the women’s lives.
