Brand New 'Gritty' Cop-Drama 'Graceland' Starts Tonight


Aaron Tveit Daniel Sunjata Vanessa Ferlito Jeff Eastin

Graceland is created by Jeff Eastin (NBC's Hawaii, USA's White Collar), and follows members of separate law enforcement branches who are required to work - and live - together undercover in a Californian beach house in an hour long show. '

Described as "grittier" and "more complex" than White Collar by The Washington Post, the story and setting are said to be based on real-life events where a beach house, that was seized in the 90s by the feds, is used as a base for undercover agents. The name 'Graceland' comes from the name of the house - after its previous drug dealing owner's obsession with Elvis.

The first episode focuses on Mike: a Virginian played by Aaron Tveit, who you may recognise from Les Misérables and Gossip Girl. The move, and subsequent culture-shock Mike experiences, from Virginia to sunny Santa Monica is explored in the pilot episode as he adapts to his new surroundings and unconventional housemates. Mike joins a band of other undercover agents in the mansion, lead by "menacingly ambivalent" senior FBI agent Paul Briggs; who is played by Daniel Sunjata - best known from FX's firefighter drama Rescue Me.

Video - Jason O'Mara Had Problems With Handcuffs


One For The Money actors Daniel Sunjata (All My Children; The Devil Wears Prada) and Jason O'Mara (Resident Evil: Extinction; Terra Nova) talk about their new movie. When asked if they'd been in trouble with the law, Daniel confessed he had received a couple of parking tickets but that was it and Jason says that he has a similar answer. The latter also reveals that he had problems cuffing people in the film, so he had to take the handcuffs home to practice with.

One For The Money also stars Katherine Heigl and Debbie Reynolds and will be released in the UK in February 2012

Video - Daniel Sunjata Wears Velvet Suit - One For The Money New York Premiere Arrivals Part 1


'One for the Money' premiere at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square. Daniel Sunjata, who plays Ranger in the film, wore a velvet suit as he stood next to a large poster advertising the film. Veteran actress Debbie Reynolds looked very much at home on the red carpet and didn't seem to be put off by the photographers. In the film, Debbie plays Grandma Mazur.

The main attraction, though, was Katherine Heigl, who dyed her trademark blonde hair brown to play the heroine, Stephanie Plum. Katherine looked glamorous in a floor length red dress

Rescue Me: Season Three Review


Weak
In the first couple of seasons, Denis Leary's FDNY fire opera Rescue Me flung itself through windows and played out in traffic. It busted jaws, opened old wounds just for spite and made grand sport of the whole ungodly train wreck of it all. It was almost as though co-creators Leary and Peter Tolan (The Larry Sanders Show) felt they were going to get canceled any second and so chucked all caution to the wind. In between sitting around the firehouse and indulging in some of the more profane dialogue ever to grace the TV screen (even on basic cable), the characters were subjected to just about any disaster Leary and Tolan could come up with, anything to push these emotionally stunted mugs to the wall and see what devastation they would mete out in response.

But somehow, the pissy little export from the land of the five boroughs -- and rarely has a show so viscerally captured the city's day-to-day, boiling-over, rat-in-a-cage anger -- survived. And this is after sending the wife of the Chief (Jack McGee) into a debilitating Alzheimer's nightmare and not only devastating Tommy Gavin's (Leary) family with the long-term and low-intensity emotional warfare of a never-ending divorce but then, near the end of the second season, having a drunk driver kill Tommy's little boy. That tragedy was then capped off by a nothing-to-lose Uncle Teddy (Lenny Clarke) gunning down the driver in full view of the cops, since a life behind bars seemed preferable to anything else he had going.

Rescue Me: Season Two Review


Good
Roughly midway through the second season of FX's Rescue Me, New York firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) is called by his dead cousin's widow to give a lecture to her teenaged son, who has just expressed an interest in becoming a firefighter; having lost her husband in the World Trade Center, she's not interested in having another smoke-eater in the family. Tommy is most of the way through his lecture, giving the kid the full business about the horrific side of the job, people found without faces or melted to their beds, but then he turns it around and starts in on how at the end of the day, he knows that no matter what, he made a difference. It all brings a smile to the face of his cousin, standing behind his son. You see, Tommy's cousin might have passed away, but being dead doesn't keep you from the cast of Rescue Me -- it just means you're not necessarily in every episode.

The first season of the show was a rollicking explosion of male-bonding, sadistic humor, and whiskey tears spiked with that FX Channel-brand of almost-HBO boundary-pushing. Gavin was a weekly train wreck of rage, bouncing from his mistress to booze to his failing marriage to booze to tempting death on the job with FDNY Engine 62 to booze again. Along the way, Tommy also held long and in-depth conversations with the ghost of his dead cousin, before deciding to shack up with and impregnate his cousin's equally messed up widow, Sheila (Callie Thorne) in the aftermath of his wife running off with the kids. Season Two opens with everything in disrepair, to say the least, as the firefighters keep pushing through the emotional wreckage of 9/11 long after the country has moved on.

Brother To Brother Review


Good
Perry (Anthony Mackie) has a lot going on. He's young, black, and gay, and studying hard at Columbia while also working at a homeless shelter and trying to get noticed as a painter. Disowned by his homophobic parents, he's looking for love, meaning, purpose... all that good stuff. "There's a war inside me," he thinks to himself.

So can he end the war in the course of a 90-minute movie? Brother to Brother tackles so many issues that there's no way Perry will find all his answers, but he does make a good start with the help of the elderly Bruce Nugent (Roger Robinson), a minor figure in the Harlem Renaissance whom Perry encounters on the street and later at the shelter. Nugent, who's also gay, takes Perry back to the days of wild Harlem through a series of black-and-white flashbacks. It's there that we meet the young Bruce (Duane Boutte) along with the superstars of the era: Langston Hughes (Daniel Sunjata), Zora Neale Hurston (Aunjanue Ellis), and Wallace Thurman (Ray Ford). By listening to Nugent's stories, Perry realizes that all the prejudices he's fighting -- black vs. white, gay vs. straight, light-skinned vs. dark-skinned -- are nothing new.

Melinda & Melinda Review


Good
Woody Allen hit upon a plucky, imaginative concept for "Melinda andMelinda": The same story, of a woman at loose ends, imagined as bothcomedy and tragedy by two playwrights (Wallace Shawn and Larry Pine) arguingin a Manhattan cafe whether life is inherently funny or inherently sad.

While these bookend scenes are uncharacteristically clunkyand deliberate, full of exposition designed to set the fictional stage,the two parallel stories are pure Woody Allen at his ironic, neurotic,romantic, poignant and peculiar best -- and they're deftly woven togetherto compliment and play off each other.

The underappreciated Radha Mitchell (she played wives in"FindingNeverland," "PhoneBooth" and "Manon Fire") may now get the recognition shedeserves with her remarkable performances in the dual title role as a flighty,suicidal beauty who arrives in each story by crashing a dinner party.

One Melinda is a new downstairs neighbor who knocks onthe Upper East Side door of wannabe filmmaker Amanda Peet (who flirts withrich men hoping they'll fund her independent movie "The CastrationSonata") and her husband, neurotic out-of-work actor Will Ferrell(the picture's requisite Woody surrogate, although with unpredicted nuanceFerrell makes the role his own). Pratfalling into the dining room, Melindaannounces she's just taken two dozen sleeping pills. The comical chaosthat ensues leads to friendships, infidelities and unrequited love, allorbiting around Melinda -- although she's largely unaware of the upheavalshe's wrought.
