Closer Monday

TV GUIDE: The Monday Guide to TV: A Holiday Closer, Charlie Brown and More Country Awards

Dec 5, 2011
by Matt Roush

Is he a good Santa or a bad Santa? Sounds like a case for Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick), and in a very campy Christmas episode of TNT's The Closer (9/8c) — one of many holiday episodes we'll be weighing in on this week — the Santa is question (and under questioning) is played by Fred Willard, so at least you know you'll be entertained.

When a fellow Santa is killed during a sabotaged zip-line stunt at the "North Pole Village" run by Willard, he is brought in to the precinct in full costume, drinking and smoking and barfing and raving. This causes great dismay for Christmas-loving Buzz (Phillip P. Keene, resplendent in a reindeer sweater), who's accompanied by his head-turning sister Casey (FlashForward's Christine Woods), an instant favorite among the guys in the precinct, described at one point by a petulant Brenda as looking "like a bunch of diabetics standing in front of a candy store."

But the biggest gift of all for me is the return of Mark Pellegrino in his devilishly funny turn as Brenda's outrageous lawyer, who's asking for more money to continue working on her federal lawsuit. If you ask me, he's worth every penny...

Doctor Who 3

GUARDIAN: Matt Smith interview: lord of misrule

He spends all his time in Wales, has no social life and he's just broken up with Daisy Lowe. But as Doctor Who returns, Matt Smith tells Euan Ferguson why he's the luckiest man on TV

by Euan Ferguson
3 December 2011

I don't think Matt Smith has an unenthusiastic bone in his body. True, he has a nastily damaged and very specific one, in his back, which cut short a proper professional football career, but even that one's still probably enthusiastic. He and his bones exude not a hint of a slump of possible ennui, ever, for any aspect of his own life or, winningly, anyone else's.

He really is like Tigger. I suspect had I met him a couple of weeks after this joyous Indian-summer morning, after his reported split with model Daisy Lowe, there might have been a certain underlying… subduedness. Breaking up is, I think they say, always hard to do. But I'm truly not sure; I don't know if those bones do subdued...


... Q: He's had two years, now, to inhabit one of TV's most famous characters. Does he feel he's changed him at all?

Matt Smith: "I don't wish to avoid the question, honestly, but it's a kind of hard thing isn't it, commenting on your own work? I think I'll probably have a more definitive – at least a more interesting – answer to that in the future. I don't want to be too conscious about that because I'm still in the middle of that, it's still evolving. From year to year."

Q: And century to century.

Matt Smith: "Absolutely. As the doctor ages he gets younger and sillier. He's over 1,000 now, I think. And – oh, I just like him. His lack of cynicism. He's like a baby. He wants to sniff, to taste, everything; he'll never dismiss anything. As we get older – perhaps I'm just speaking for myself – we can get too cynical. If he had a… bath, it would be filled with rubber ducks which could talk or something; he'd find a way to reinvent the common bath. And I admire that..."

HAVEN - BLOG CRITIC: Lucas Bryant from Syfy’s Haven Dishes Q&A Style

by Diane Morasco
Dec 04, 2011

Born and raised in Elmira, Ontario, Lucas Bryant has made a name for himself in both Canada and the United States. Bryant currently stars as Nathan Wuornos on Syfy’s hit series Haven. Bryant has numerous television credits to his name, including Queer as Folk (2000) for Showtime, M.V.P. (2008) for SOAPnet and CBC, Sex, Love & Secrets (2005) for UPN, and CTV's Bury the Lead (2002).

Lucas is not only a talented performer, he is a natural comedian and his humorous side was evident during Syfy's Haven press conference Q&A call.



... Blog Critic: You know from the show runners, the writers about what might be in store for season three?

Lucas Bryant: "I don't. I have completely given up trying to get my head around what the heck is going on here. There's stuff that they want to keep from us. But then there's also - I don't necessarily want to know the things that Nathan doesn't know. I enjoy it discovering it as we go, as he does. So I don't know, no. I mean I hear some rumblings about potential storylines, but then I imagine those will all change as well in the writers room as they hash things out. So no, I'm as clueless as you. Not to suggest that you're clueless, no..."
