1.6 Start Calling Me Dad
There’s something about the names we use for people. Variations on their given name, the social inflections of their surname, the status information of their titles, earned or otherwise. It’s a truth that’s not lost on the patent medicine salesman who wants to borrow Thackery’s reputation to help flog thousands of bottles of his rejuvenation liniment to credulous consumers nationwide. He might not have secured the surgeon’s blessing but there’s no denying that the man has a point. These men, these ‘doctors, inventors and architects, the New American Gods’, have got something worth trading on. Take Dr Pepper, his cure-all is being enjoyed as a beverage as much as it is a medicine, and who cares as long as the dollars are rolling in? »

Look, I know my job doesn’t involve digging ditches under a burning summer sun or tightrope-walking between Chicago skyscrapers like Nik Wallenda. But that doesn’t mean recapping The Good Wife‘s current sixth season hasn’t been a seriously harrowing experience.
I mean, I didn’t think I was embarking on the long, lost Season 7 of HBO’s Oz, and yet now it looks like sweet, pale Cary Agos is just a few days — or maybe minutes — away from fighting for his life in the mean prison yards of the Illinois penal system. I never even watched the pilot of Boardwalk Empire, »
Sony Pictures has hired Brad Anderson to direct a new action thriller called Shadow Run. I’m a big fan of Anderson’s past work, which includes The Machinist, Session 9, and Transsiberian. The guy is a talented filmmaker who is good with the characters and stories he tells. He has also worked on TV series such as The Wire, Fringe, Boardwalk Empire, and The Killing.
Shadow Run comes from a spec script by Joe Gazzam. The story begins when "a viral attack puts lives in danger, forcing a CIA agent to enact a secret prisoner exchange: Russia’s most notorious spy for the American scientist who can create a cure.”
Anderson recently helmed The Call, which starred Halle Berry, as well as last month’s Stonehearst Asylum, starring Kate Beckinsale. I’m looking forward to seeing how this new project of his pans out. I think Marvel needs to »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.
Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.
So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.
Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »
