“We’re not bad people,” promises Kyle Chandler’s John Rayburn at the end of the first full trailer for Netflix’s new drama, Bloodline, “but we did a bad thing.” And since that sentence appears to be the dark and ominous slogan for the series, I’m guessing John is going to be a much different and, potentially, a much dangerous character than Coach Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights. Although Chandler is the headlining star, the cast of Bloodline features many familiar names and faces, including Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks, Mad Men), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Norbert Leo Butz (Dan in Real Life), Jamie McShane (Sons of Anarchy), Jacinda Barrett (Suits) and Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace).

After spending years making audiences laugh, Steve Carell delivered one of the most chilling performances of the year in the true-crime thriller “Foxcatcher.” The role has already garnered him Golden Globe and SAG Award noms, and now the actor is being honored with the Variety Creative Impact in Acting Award on Jan. 4 at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
Carell has shown a dramatic side before; he won a SAG Award as a member of the ensemble of “Little Miss Sunshine,” in which he played a suicidal gay man. He also earned raves for his turn as a widower in “Dan in Real Life” and as an annoying boyfriend in “The Way, Way Back.” Still, it’s unlikely even his biggest fans were prepared for his complex, unsettling turn as billionaire John du Pont in “Foxcatcher.”
