RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'

RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'
Survivor's Remorse has done a few good things. The Starz original series has reinvigorated the half-hour comedy. It's added something fresh to the tired formula of famous people dealing with fame. And it's provided a new spotlight to shine on RonReaco Lee, one of the overlooked talents on television.

For the last few years, RonReaco has without fanfare enlivened every TV project he's been a part of. As snitch and often unwilling accomplice Julius Grant on FOX's criminally (pun intended) short-lived comedy The Good Guys, he stole every scene that he was in.

Thankfully, Good Guys creator Ma...

With 'Constantine,' Harold Perrineau Gets His Wings
As if Harold Perrineau wasn't cool enough as the bassist of the most underrated TV band, now he's gained supernatural powers as an angelic sidekick on NBC's new drama Constantine. His character Manny is tasked with watching over occult detective John Constantine (played by Matt Ryan, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) and trying to keep him in line, while the two battle literal forces of darkness.

We caught up with Harold last week to chat about Constantine joining the ranks of DC Comics adaptations on TV, how much Hellblazer reading he had to do, and if he's used to jumping on board new se...

‘Grimm’ Season 4: David Giuntoli Talks Nick’s Absent Powers, His
Last season of “Grimm” left us with Nick minus his Grimm abilities, Trubel trying to save the day, Juliette discovering Nick slept with Adalind aka a Juliette look-alike, Rosalee and Monroe tying the knot, the Captain getting shot and Adalind leaving Portland to find her baby.

Whoa. Talk about an intense finale, and we have a feeling there’s a lot more to uncover when “Grimm” returns for its fourth season this Friday.

Just the other day, Starpulse chatted with David Giuntoli during a conference call, where he opened up about the upcoming season and where his character Nick Burkhardt goes...

Anna Gunn On 'Gracepoint': 'It's Quite Hard To Drop It Sometimes'

Anna Gunn On 'Gracepoint': 'It's Quite Hard To Drop It Sometimes
Anna Gunn knows good drama; she starred on HBO's Deadwood and recently won an Emmy for her work on AMC's Breaking Bad. Yet her starring role on FOX's Gracepoint is more than just good drama. Anna is impressive in the role of Ellie Miller, the steady and opposite to David Tennant's aggressive Emmett Carver as they investigate a child's murder.

And for the actress, it was something more than just another complex character. Anna spoke with us last week about her thorough preparation for her Gracepoint duties and how the series was slightly hard for her to shake.

"I think that it can strike p...

Julia
Celebrating remarkable acting work is a must when a singular performance is witnessed that makes a lasting impression. In the case of the tour-de-force turn by actress Ashley C. Williams in the powerful new rape-revenge flick “Julia” it’s a case of pointing a spotlight on something movie goers have never seen before. As the titular unforgettable character, Williams runs the emotional gamut of innocence, vulnerability, sadness, anger, and vengeance all wrapped up in one captivating performance that can only be described as arresting. (See the review of the film from our Screamfest LA 2014...

Actor Undercover: Meet 'Scandal's' Double Agent Brian Letscher
Don't worry, Brian Letscher's only pretending to be lethal. As Secret Service agent slash B613 operative Tom Larsen on Scandal, the actor's complicit in the death of President Grant's son Jerry, tried to kill former boss Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), and is on the hot seat with the nefarious Rowan Pope (Joe Morton). And tomorrow, he might just add to his body count with a juicy new role in NBC's supernatural thriller Grimm.

But in real life, he's the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. We caught up with Brian last week to discuss how much street cred he gets from playing the bad guy, wha...

Screamfest LA 2014 Interview - Filmmaker Christian Pfeil On Bringing Style To Short 'Evil Twin'

October 21st, 2014 10:20am EDT
ET
Short films are not unlike an anthology movie – there’s always a balance of some good, some bad. But every once in a while a short passes through that not only makes the audience turn and take notice, but stands tall as a notable calling card for the person who made it. Such is the fate of a recent short I viewed a this year’s "14th Annual Screamfest LA" currently taking place in Los Angeles Oct. 14 through Oct. 23 at the TLC Chinese 6 Theaters (for more info go to www.screamfestla.com) titled ‘Evil Twin’, a action-packed, sci-fi sporting, martial arts infused thrill ride that has enough ...

Erica Durance Is Back On The Case In 'Wedding Planner Mystery'
Erica Durance has a knack for playing problem-solvers. On CTV's Saving Hope, she faces life and death medical situations. In The CW's Smallville, she was the ultimate investigative journalist, Lois Lane. This Sunday, things aren't quite as serious as doctors and superheroes, but Erica's still on the case in the Hallmark original movie Wedding Planner Mystery.

Stepping into the stylish outfits of wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid, who finds herself suspected following a murder and kidnapping, Erica sat down with us last week to discuss the movie based on the Deborah Donnelly novel Veiled Thr...

Emmy Nominee Allison Tolman Reflects On Her Trip To 'Fargo'
Allison Tolman shot to deserved recognition with FX's Fargo, and her fantastic turn as small-town deputy Molly Solverson. After the show's first season, the still emerging actress had become an Emmy Award nominee and Critics' Choice Television Award winner. Now that season one is available on Blu-Ray and DVD, we sat down with Allison to look back on Molly's journey and how much she loved her time on Fargo.

Everything turned out fantastic, but she was initially surprised by the idea of a TV series inspired by the 1996 Coen Brothers movie. "When I first heard that they were doing the project...

Survive and Vance: Chris Vance Drives 'Transporter: The Series'

Chris Vance
Chris Vance has been hiding in plain sight. The English actor impresses no matter what role you hand him. He was the enigmatic yet still kind of likeable James Whistler on Prison Break. The entertaining antagonist Mason Gilroy in five episodes of Burn Notice. The charming and often inspiring Dr. Jack Gallagher on Mental. The "of course she fell for him" Casey Jones in Rizzoli & Isles. Even when he was a really bad guy on Dexter, he was still worth watching. And yet, most TV viewers probably can't tell you his name.

That's about to change. Vance has taken on his biggest role yet, and he's t...
