‘The Good Wife’ Eyes New Prospects As Season Six Begins Tonight

14Returning for its sixth season tonight on CBS, THE GOOD WIFE opens where season five left off, with Eli (ALAN CUMMING) asking Alicia (JULIANNA MARGULIES) if she’d consider running for State’s Attorney (her philandering husband’s (CHRIS NOTH) old job). Meanwhile, as Diane (CHRISTINE BARANSKI) considers leaving Lockhart/Gardner to join Florrick/Agos, a major crises threatens to destroy the firm. And, while its hard to imagine that this season could produce the kind of jaw-dropping twist we saw last season, the premiere indicates that fans are in for some treats.

As Alicia Florrick, Emmy Award-winning JULIANNA MARGULIES brings an understated quality that allows her to say more with a ‘look’ than with a paragraph of dialog. During a recent press conference to promote the show, she talked about playing the role. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Currently in theaters, THE DROP is a gritty crime drama that centers on what happens when a clumsy armed robbery goes haywire at a money-laundering bar known as Cousin Marv’s and an investigation leads to a succession of secrets and lies being revealed. Directed by MICHAEL R. ROSKAM from a screenplay by DENNIS LEHANE, the film stars TOM HARDY, NOOMI RAPACE, JAMES GANDOLFINI, MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS and ELIZABETH RODRIGUEZ.

For better or worse, THE DROP will always hold a place in movie history as being the final big screen performance of JAMES GANDOLFINI (who died at the age of 52 on 6/19/13).

During a recent interview to promote the film, director ROSKHAM talked about how GANDOLFINI’S unexpected death affected the end result of THE DROP.

Director Kevin Smith Stays True To Himself With ‘Tusk’

_rbdave73dj1_hires23To call TUSK ‘quirky’ or ‘off-beat’ just wouldn’t do it justice. In a nutshell, the film is a dark horror dramedy that centers on a podcaster who disappears into the Canadian wilderness where he was conducting an interview with an old man with an incredible past. A mysterious seafarer, the old man has a fetish for walruses and decides to take his guest hostage and turn him into one.

Written and directed by notorious indie filmmaker KEVIN SMITH, the cast features JUSTIN LONG, GENESIS RODRIGUEZ, HALEY JOEL OSMENT and MICHAEL PARKS (as well as a swell cameo by JOHNNY DEPP).

Said to be the first in what SMITH is calling his TRUE NORTH TRILOGY, TUSK is a throwback to the kind of independent features he cut his teeth on. We sat down with SMITH a few days ago and he admitted this is the kind of project he’s most interested in. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO — WARNING: NSFW)


TUSK is in select theaters now.
