Opening in theaters today, END OF WATCH is as action-packed and gritty as we’ve come to expect from writer/director DAVID AYER (STREET KINGS, TRAINING DAY). A Los Angeles set crime drama that centers on two street cops who find themselves in over their heads after a notorious cartel takes issue with a bust and the confiscation of a cache of money and guns, the film uses a variety of camera tricks to draw the audience into the world of street crime. Heading the committed (and convincing) cast are JAKE GYLLENHAAL, MICHAEL PENA, ANNA KENDRICK, AMERICA FERRERA and FRANK GRILLO.
As convincing as the film may seem to an audience, GYLLENHAAL (who put in a couple weeks time riding along with L.A. cops in prep for the role) confessed during our recent interview that real life is a lot scarier. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Just as actress KYRA SEDGWICK ankles her popular crime-drama series, THE CLOSER, hubby KEVIN BACON is prepping for the debut of his new crime drama series, THE FOLLOWING. As a burnt-out detective recalled into service to track down a brilliant serial-killer, BACON is as good as he’s ever been and the series pilot is, hands down, one of the best in recent memory.
Set to debut on Fox-TV in January, THE FOLLOWING is currently in production.
Long time residents of the east coast, SEDGWICK and BACON have gotten used to occasionally re-locating for work in TV and film. But, during an interview we did a few years ago, BACON made it pretty clear that Los Angeles was not one of his desired destinations for any length of time. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
