Author Elmore Leonard Very Happy To See ‘Justified’ In Such Good Hands

key_art_justifiedCurrently in its third season on FX, JUSTIFIED is the faithful depiction of characters created by iconic crime-fiction author ELMORE LEONARD for his popular series of stories centered on U. S. Marshall Raylan Givens, a Stetson-wearing, fast-drawing, no-nonsense lawman who has no trouble at all shooting to kill. As played by TIMOTHY OLYPHANT, the TV version of Raylan is an anti-hero as likeable as he is cool. At the recent press conference to promote the new season, LEONARD talked about being one of the producers of the series and how very happy he is with the way the writers are bringing his work to the screen. Turning his Raylan Givens stories into a series seems perfectly JUSTIFIED. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

This week’s episode of Glee has the cast performing songs from Michael Jackson’s extensive library.  For Naya Rivera, shooting the “Michael” episode evoked memories of her childhood love for the late singer.

“I grew up with Michael Jackson,” says Rivera, who actually visited Neverland Ranch.  “One of my first demo reels, when I was like five, was set to Jam; so I knew who he was, and my parents were huge fans, and they always played his music. So I was very familiar with Michael, watched all of his videos, loved all of them, so I couldn’t be happier and more proud to do his iconic songs.”

After striking out last year on Green Lantern and The Change-Up, Ryan Reynolds tries to usher in the year with a bit of box-office success with Safe House.  The good news is the picture pairs him up with Denzel Washington, who plays a dangerous spy who is being protected by a wet behind his ears CIA agent (Reynolds).  The action film also stars Vera Farmiga, Ruben Blades, Brendan Gleeson, and Sam Shepard.
