“Hitler’s SS: A Portrait of Evil” is a 1986 made-for TV movie telling the fictional story of Helmut (Bill Nighy) and Karl Hoffmann (John Shea), brothers who become a part of Hitler’s rise to power in Germany. The movie opens in 1931 as we meet the brothers, their family, friends and associates. Hoping they can sway and minimalize the radical elements through their intellect and character, Helmut and Karl willingly join the Nazi Party.
The Hoffmann brothers are eager participants in the Nazi party early on as their mother Gerda (Carroll Baker) provides worried commentary. Factory worker Karl joins the Sa while his university student brother Helmut is coaxed into joining the SS by fencing instructor Reinhard Heydrich (David Warner), much to the objection of his mentor and Jewish professor Ludwig Rosenberg (Jose Ferrer). Tony Randall is interesting appearing as a comic performer for the Nazis known as Putzi.
Shea knows well enough to lead off with an action sequence, as Boston police detective James Doyle (Eric Dane) responds to a 911 call reporting a hostage situation. Along with his partner (and girlfriend) Maggie...
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman was silly, joyful fun. We take a fond look back at the 1990s series...
A flash of red cape, the S sitting proudly on the chest, the warrior of Truth, Justice and the American Way, Superman has always been the most recognisable and iconic of all the superheroes. After many changes on-screen over the years from the All-American hero in the 1978 movie to the recent darker and moodier version, you'd be hard pressed to go anywhere on the planet and find somebody who had never heard of the Man of Steel.

TV show description:
After being sworn in as Vice President of the United States, widowed former law professor and Wisconsin Senator, Natalie "Nate" Maccabee (Sharon Stone), receives a gift from sitting President Thomas Eckhart (John Shea), himself a former VP. That gift -- an ornate key bearing a Freemason insignia -- is presented as a ceremonial key to the VP's official Naval Observatory residence.
Using the key, Maccabee uncovers a secret room, behind a fireplace which also bears the insignia. Her Chief Steward, Malcolm Millar (Gerald McRaney) congratulates Maccabee on
Over the years, Lex has been played by actors such as Gene Hackman, Kevin Spacey, Michael Rosenbaum, Clancy Brown, and John Shea. Each one had their own unique spin on the character, and next year we’ll fully get to see another version of the villainous character from Eisenberg. In a recent interview with The Diane Rehm Show, the actor talked about how he approached the character and how he will make it his own:
“I’ve always noticed the best thing to channel, as an actor, is yourself. To figure out what makes you angry, what makes you feel vengeful or righteous. Those are the feelings that Lex Luthor has. And use that
Sharon Stone plays Vice President Natalie Maccabee, who shortly after being ushered to her new residence discovers a hidden passage. “You just beat Lyndon Johnson’s record,” she’s told by her steward, Malcolm Millar (Gerald McRaney), who actually presides over the “Agent X” program, which authorizes the VP to tackle threats foreign and domestic,

Cast also includes John Shea as 'President Thomas Eckhart', Gerald McRaney as 'Malcolm Millar', Chief Steward of the VP's mansion and James Earl Jones as the 'Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court'.

The show follows newly-elected vice president Natalie Maccabee (Stone), who upon inauguration is greeted with a surprise and Washington’s best kept secret — Agent X (Hephner). Maccabee has full discretion over this top secret agent’s unseen work, sending him into the field (without even the president’s knowledge) during times of extreme crisis.
The new series merges action and political drama, with an emphasis on dramatic fight scenes. Hephner, who plays Agent X, and Fonda, his Russian enemy, perform almost all of their own stunts. “I was going to go out bleeding if I had to,” Hephner said.
Although Hephner loves the thrills of the show, he acknowledged he’s happy

Lex Luthor holds a very special place in comic books – he’s the classic arch-enemy of the most famous and popular superhero of all time, Superman.
Having first appeared in 1940’s Action Comics #23, Luthor has been a prominent figure in DC comic books – and indeed a thorn in the Man of Steel’s side – ever since.
With his iconic bald head, the multi-billionaire businessman has used his brain to combat the Kryptonian hero’s brawn, often to devastating effect, utilising genius schemes, powerful technology and the services of other powerful villains in a determined attempt to take him down once and for all.
Such is Luthor’s importance and popularity as a character, he has followed Superman across every form of media – television, movies and video games – and has been portrayed by a number of famous actors, including Gene Hackman, John Shea, Michael Rosenbaum and Kevin Spacey. Jesse Eisenberg
Bruce Dern follows up his Oscar-nominated performance in last year’s Nebraska with his starring role here as family patriarch Austen Kittredge, Sr in writer/director Jay Craven’s adaptation of Howard frank Mosher’s acclaimed novel. While his character in the former film was endearingly befuddled, this man is bitter and abrasive.

They’ve never met, but the lad is to spend a few weeks with them at the old family farm/sawmill until his father picks him up. The boy soon meets his grandmother, the eccentric, ethereal Abiah (Genevieve Bujold), a nurturing contrast to her stern,
