Ross McCall: The Everyday Guy Amidst the L.A. Insanity of "Crash"

22 November 2009 8:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

(Ross McCall and Eric Roberts, left, in "Crash.")

By Terry Keefe

(This article is currently appearing in this month's Venice Magazine.)

It isn’t necessarily great news for an actor to hear that the television series they’ve been starring in is going to be “retooled” in its second season. Your character can be retooled right out the door. Or, it can develop significantly. The latter has fortunately been the case for actor Ross McCall, who has been playing Kenny Battalgia on “Crash” for both of its two seasons. Earlier in the year, veteran producer and writer Ira Steven Behr (“Deep Space Nine”) was brought on as the new show runner, and he merged Kenny’s storyline with that of billionaire Seth Blanchard, the billionaire played by Eric Roberts in the new season, and the major plot focus. Blanchard has a spiritual reawakening which causes him to forgo the building of a new L. »

Starz 'Crash' an emotional sledgehammer this Friday, no miss TV

4 November 2009 8:41 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Given the news that Starz "Crash" lead actor Dennis Hopper is battling cancer, the latest episode to air this Friday is especially poignant. Hopper has shined as a grief-stricken father this season, desperate to piece together his daughter's murder. Jocko Sims (Anthony) has turned in a solid performance as Ben's right hand and voice of reason, helping him sort through mendacity and botched police work. Ben (Dennis Hopper) is now tasked with a life or death decision when a cancer-stricken friend (Keith Carradine) asks for his assistance in committing suicide to end his pain and suffering. Carradine is cast as the husband of Ben's ex-wife (Peggy Lipton). You can watch the full episode of "Crash" on »

(Eric Roberts in "Crash," above.)

Rediscovering Roberts

Eric Roberts never really left, but 2009 audiences are learning (or relearning) the charms of the actor Mickey Rourke has called the best he ever worked with.

By Terry Keefe

(This article is currently appearing in this month's Venice Magazine.)

Eric Roberts is the [expletive deleted] Man,” proclaimed Mickey Rourke at this past year’s Independent Spirit Awards, while accepting his trophy for Best Male Lead, at the very beginning of a speech which then saw him singling out Roberts, his one-time co-star in 1984’s The Pope of Greenwich Village, as someone who was worthy of a comeback like Rourke had with The Wrestler. From the audience, Roberts himself watched his friend at the podium with what looked to be a combination of embarrassment at being mentioned and some pleasure at the same, finally throwing it back at Rourke by shouting good-naturedly, “Accept your award!” For »
