NEW YORK POST: Sarah Shahi: I can not run in six inch Louboutins

January 21, 2011 by Jarett Wieselman

Millions of American's [have] met Kate Reed -- a zippy, zany court mediator who runs around San Francisco with the bounciest of hair and highest of heels. And while only one of those things will change in the episodes to come, I think star Sarah Shahi has found the perfect character for her special brand of exuberance.

But we had a couple questions base on the series premiere, so we rang up the equally perky star to talk about her new show, those heels and where both are going in the weeks to come...!

... PW: The first episode set up Kate's world nicely -- but in the weeks to come Richard Dean Anderson arrives to literally blow it up, right?

Sarah: Yes, he enters Kate’s life in a very mysterious way and he exits in the same way. But the information that he gives her sets up a lot of mystery – lots about Kate’s life that he didn’t know about before. And he definitely shakes her world up in a big way.


Richard Dean Anderson as David Smith and Sarah Shahi as Kate Reed

PW: Does that provide the episodes with a season-long throughline?

Sarah: Yea, that’s exactly what it does. To be honest, I don’t know if the network knew what they wanted at first. Don’t know if I’m supposed to say that, but … I’ll just be honest. At first it was something they wanted to address in every episodes, but then we realized we could hold some stuff back. So what his character brings does come up in every episode. It’s a mystery the audience will be teased with...

BOSTON HERALD: Howling at the moon

Michael Trevino gets a hairy shot at fame on CW’s ‘Vampire Diaries’

By Amy Amatangelo
Sunday, January 30, 2011

One werewolf transformation may be enough for Michael Trevino.

As Tyler on CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” (Thursday at 9 p.m. on WLVI [website], Ch. 56), Trevino became the mythological creature for the first time in a December episode. The grueling and explicit scenes took two days to shoot.

“That’s probably the hardest I’ve ever been pushed as an actor,” Trevino told the Herald in a telephone interview last week from Los Angeles.

There will be another full moon in Mystic Falls before the second season of the hit series is over. “As far as the transformation goes, I’m hoping it’s not anything like our first one. Let’s make some noises, cut to the moon, and cut down to wolf,” he said and then laughed...

This interview was originally broadcast on May 26, 2010. Justified returns for a second season on Fx on February 9, 2011 at 10pm EST.

One of actor Walton Goggins' earliest moments on stage came at a Georgia hog-calling competition when he was just 10 years old.

"I walked up onstage, and they had to adjust the mike for sure, and just leaned up on my tiptoes and just let out the biggest hog call that has ever been heard in my family, certainly," he tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "And I won — I got a big trophy with a large hog on top. I have it in my office..."

Smallville - Collider - Erica Durance Interview

COLLIDER: Erica Durance Interview SMALLVILLE

by Christina Radish Posted: January 30th, 2011

In its 10th and final season, the CW drama series Smallville is pulling out all the stops, as it concludes its modern retelling of a hero’s legendary origins. Throughout its popular run, it has continued to blend realism, action, heart and humor as Clark Kent (Tom Welling) soars toward claiming his birthright as Superman. With just half of the season remaining, fans of the show and its lead actors are starting to speculate about what they will get to see their beloved characters do before the show’s conclusion.

During a recent interview to promote the February 4th return of all-new episodes, actress Erica Durance talked about what she would like to see Lois Lane do before the end of the season, what she’s brought to the iconic role, the feedback she’s gotten from fellow Lois Lane actress Margot Kidder, what she loves most about Lois, the storylines and the superheroes she’s most enjoyed seeing on the show, being directed by Tom Welling, and what she’d like to keep from the set...


... Q: What do you most love about Lois, and is there anything about her that you wish you could change?

DURANCE: I don’t feel that I want to change anything about her. I think she just happened the way she was supposed to. I can’t go back and change it. But, I love that she’s flawed. I love that she’s human. You need that juxtaposed to the perfection of Superman. I think that’s part of why she’s written the way she’s written, and why she’s there. She just has this absolute loyalty for what is good and right and just, and it parallels what Superman is and what he embodies. I think that that’s why it works so well.

PBS: Pioneers of Television - "Crime Dramas" Airs Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 8/7C

Preview: Crime Dramas

Pioneers of TV crime dramas, including Jack Webb ("Dragnet"), Desi Arnaz ("The Untouchables"), Bruce Geller ("Mannix" and "Mission: Impossible"), Bill Cosby, Angie Dickinson, Barbara Bain, Martin Landau and James Garner.

Pioneering television crime dramas established new rules for viewers, amping up the violence and the flash-quick dialogue; and delivering reluctant, but likeable, heroes who solve complex crimes in an hour of delicious television. Today, the genre has never been more popular, but it owes much of its winning formula to industry innovations developed in the 1950s and 1960s. For instance, the invention of the teleprompter helped actors deliver dialogue in quick, clipped sentences. New ways of shooting scenes, including the close-up and quick edits, ushered in new and exciting storytelling elements. Unlike Westerns, which tended to shoot panoramic scenes using wide shots that took in an entire landscape, crime dramas began to produce scenes that drew viewers close into an actor’s face, thus increasing the dramatic arc of the story. Several groundbreaking crime dramas also challenged stereotypes of the day, casting women and minorities in key roles.


Jack Webb’s popular radio drama, which dispassionately played out real-life crimes taken from the records of the Los Angeles Police Department, made the leap to television in 1951. This unusual show did away with fisticuffs and dramatic acting in favor of a documentary-like style that relied on authenticity for its street credibility. Unlike other crime dramas, “Dragnet” didn’t focus so much on the crime, but instead showed the after-effects of crime on victims and family members. Webb was an innovator, using teleprompters to help his actors deliver deadpan dialogue, and using close camera angles to break the barrier between viewer and actor. The show ratings were initially dismal, but NBC kept “Dragnet” on the air, and viewers eventually warmed to Webb’s approach.

"I Spy"

One of the first popular series in the “buddy genre,” the popular “I Spy” espionage crime drama relied heavily on the on-screen and real-life friendship between actors Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. This groundbreaking series debuted in 1965, just as America’s battle for civil rights was at a boiling point. “I Spy” made a splash by casting the first African-American actor, Cosby, in a lead role. Culp and Cosby decided the best way to handle the controversial casting, however, was to say nothing. They would portray a world where race was a non-issue. “[Cosby] came in and he said, ‘Listen, our television series is a statement by being a non-statement.’ I said, ‘Done,’ and we shook hands on it,” recalls Culp. “We never talked about it again.” Unlike many taut crime dramas before it, “I Spy” ventured into new territory by shooting in exotic locations and using famous landmarks as backgrounds for the duo’s crime-fighting adventures. Despite a rough start, in which comedian-turned-actor Cosby was nearly fired by the series producer, Sheldon Leonard, the fledgling actor turned in gifted performances, and he earned three Emmy Awards for his work on the series.

"Police Woman"

Actress Angie Dickinson starred in this crime drama series that successfully cast the first woman in a lead role. Dickinson portrayed tough-minded Pepper Anderson, a sergeant with the Los Angeles Police Department, who often went undercover to nab the criminals. “Police Woman” was an immediate hit when it debuted in 1974, and its success paved the way for other female-lead crime dramas that followed, such as “Charlie’s Angels” and “Cagney & Lacey.” “I was a heroine. I loved being a heroine,” says Dickinson. “And I loved that [Pepper Anderson] was allowed to be sexy and still a hero. It’s not an easy combination.”
