David Tynan, TV Writer, Dead at 62

21 November 2013 5:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Tynan, a television writer who authored more than 50 original one-hour episodes for series TV, died Nov. 11 at his home in Vancouver following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 62.

Tynan’s credits include “Highlander,” “Flash Gordon,” “First Wave,” “Poltergeist: The Legacy” and “Scene of the Crime.”

He was a member of the Writers Guild of Canada and the Writers Guild of America West for over 20 years and was recognized by the Wgc in 1996 with the first Leo award for best screenwriter in a dramatic TV series for “Highlander.”

Tynan was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2008 shortly after wrapping “Flash Gordon.”

In a statement his family said: “It is worthwhile to mention that David survived longer than 97% of others diagnosed with his particular form of cancer, a testament to how much he loved life and a constant (and pleasant) surprise for the doctors in the medical field. David showed exceptional bravery, »

Marvelous Da7e #12: Howard The Duck, The First Marvel Movie

4 September 2013 11:36 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to Issue 12 of ‘The Marvelous Da7e!’

Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.

This week: What we can learn by defining Howard The Duck.

Pardon me, but I’ve been re-watching Howard The Duck. The 1986 live-action creature-feature “sci-fi/comedy,” PG-rated zoophilia and notorious flop.

It’s not a good movie. It’s an enjoyable movie, but not because of what is on screen…okay, scratch-that. It has the most physically attractive appearence of Lea Thompson on film and this time, she’s not the mother of our main character, so you can totally lust after her up until the end where it seems like she’s actually going to have sex with this duck.

Ducks, who – by the way – are basically rapists across the board. But that’s neither here nor there. »

'Rookie Blue's' Eric Johnson checks into Steven Soderbergh's Cinemax hospital drama

21 August 2013 8:03 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

One of the cops of "Rookie Blue" is taking up medicine. On the home screen, at least.

Eric Johnson, currently seen on the Canadian-made ABC police drama on a recurring basis as Detective Luke Callaghan -- ex-fiance of Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) -- has been cast in "The Knick," an upcoming Cinemax medical series with an impressive pedigree.

Also an executive producer of the show, "Traffic" Oscar winner and current "Behind the Candelabra" Emmy nominee Steven Soderbergh will direct the entire first season of the drama about a New York hospital at the start of the 20th century, when treatment methods were relatively primitive and regularly tested doctors' skills.

Johnson will play one such medic who works under Knickerbocker Hospital's chief surgeon (Clive Owen, in his first TV acting since his Emmy nomination last year for HBO's "Hemingway & Gellhorn").

Slated for a 2014 debut, "The Knick" marks a broadening of Cinemax's original programming, »

'Rookie Blue' Season 4: Eric Johnson back for 'something big' as Luke

25 July 2013 11:06 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Eric Johnson may not be a "Rookie Blue" regular anymore, but he still feels at home any time he returns as Detective Luke Callaghan.

He does so again in "Skeletons," Thursday's (July 25) episode as Season 4 of the Canadian-made ABC police drama continues. Luke is back at 15 Division to work with the cops -- including his ex-fiancee, Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) -- to find a missing girl who may have been taken by a kidnapper copying the felon who abducted Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) last season.

"There were times in the second season where they really didn't know what to do with Luke," the friendly Johnson allows to Zap2it. "Once the relationship with Andy broke down, what was he gonna do? You don't want the mopey ex-boyfriend wandering the halls for 20 episodes, because it's just not interesting.

"What I love about coming back now," adds Johnson, "is that whenever Luke is back, »

Cory Monteith obituary

Canadian actor best known for his role as Finn Hudson in Glee

The Canadian actor Cory Monteith, who has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel room aged 31, shot to fame as the all-American student Finn Hudson in Glee, the worldwide television hit about an Ohio high-school show choir.

When the musical-comedy teen series began in 2009, Monteith was cast as Finn after submitting what he described as "a cheesy 80s music video-style version" of the Reo Speedwagon power ballad Can't Fight This Feeling. Although he had no previous singing experience and his vocal performance was considered slightly weak, producers believed that Monteith displayed the naivety they were looking for in Finn, a quarterback in the fictional William McKinley High School football team and a member of its choir, New Directions.

The role made Monteith not only a global TV star, but also a lead singer in a recording act with »
