Mykelti Williamson, David Allen Grier And Jesse Williams In 'Amos 'n Andy?'
Huffington Post - 5 months
As someone who's written about black history my entire life, I thought I knew it all until I started researching the story of Amos 'n Andy. When Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and New Yorker editor Henry Finder approached me about writing a screenplay about the rise and fall of the controversial TV show, I initially winced. Like most of us, I had closed Amos 'n Andy in my "Lock Box of Egregious Black Embarrassments," right there alongside Stepin Fetchit, Uncle Tom and Omarosa. In fact, everything I thought I knew about "Amos 'n Andy" was wrong. I actually watched the old shows. And I laughed. And I kept laughing. I discovered that Amos 'n' Andy was once one of the most popular TV shows in the country, only to now be one of the most misunderstood or forgotten, driven off the air by a threatened boycott by the NAACP which crippled Black Hollywood for decades. In fact, in 1950, during the Amos 'n Andy years, there were around 500 African-American members of the Screen ...

'Code Black' Is Full of Chaos and Compassion
Huffington Post - over 1 year
TV Review - Jackie K Cooper Code Black (CBS) It is not easy to find a highly watchable series among the crop of newbies being offered on TV this season, but I have found one standout. It is CBS' Code Black, and it is ER on steroids. At first glance I thought it had potential but I didn't know if I would invest an hour every week to watch it. The draw was Marcia Gay Harden, an actress I have admired for years, but she didn't seem to be at the top of her game in the role of Dr. Leanne Rorish. "Not so fast," a little voice inside my head whispered and by the second episode she had me hooked. This is one of those series that is perfectly cast. Harden and Luis Guzman play two of the lead medical people in the ER of a major hospital in Los Angeles. They have four interns training under them. Harry Ford is Angus Leighton, Bonnie Somerville is Christa Lorenson. Benjamin Hollingsworth is Mario Savetti. Melanie Chandra is Malaya Pineda. In a short period of time you have a fix on each of t ...

Rachel McAdams And Priyanka Chopra Deserve 'Best Hair' Awards
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Stars are taking advantage of the last few weeks of summer by dressing their lips in warm shades of pink and coral and dying their strands sun-kissed colors. Keri Russell made us want to copy her gorgeous ombré waves, and Rachel McAdams stepped it up with a vibrant hair color and lipstick. Lisa D'Amato and Ashlee Simpson both made stumbles with an intense hair accessory and overdone tresses, respectively. Ladies, the next time, remember less is more! Check out who we thought had the best and worst beauty looks this week. Tell us if you agree! BEST: Rachel McAdams McAdams is the queen of amazing hair color, and this copper shade radiates against her milky complexion. Her pink-stained lips and shimmering eye makeup amp up an already stellar look. WORST: Ashlee Simpson Wow! That hair has enough volume to last weeks. Simpson should have toned it down with both her locks and smudged eyeliner. BEST: Jodie Foster We love the "Elysium" star's wavy crop ...

News: The Tuesday Playlist: Golden Boy, Justified, White Collar Finale Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Updated 7:33 am, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 The influence of NYPD Blue (where co-creator/executive producer Nicholas Wootten's career first took off) can be felt in the grittiness of the workplace tension within the precinct as alpha males clash. "There's a time and a place for flexing your muscles and pumping your chest, and this ain't it," Owen cautions his young ambitious upstart of a partner, as Clark's rivalry with the territorial and devious Arroyo (Kevin Alejandro) escalates. (That would be Clark, who could moonlight as a model between shifts.) I've grown quickly attached to the supporting cast, including NYPD Blue veteran Bonnie Somerville as Arroyo's no-nonsense partner and Holt McCallany (FX's Lights Ou ...

Denette Wilford: 'Golden Boy' Meets World
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
When I first heard that Ryan Phillippe was going to be the lead of Golden Boy, I was pretty pumped. Sure, he's probably best known for playing Sebastian Valmont, the king of d-baggery in Cruel Intentions, but for me, he'll always be Billy Douglas from One Life to Live. His return to TV (minus his stint on Damages) could've been great, but since he bailed -- reportedly because he didn't want to commit to the demands of a network series -- Golden Boy seemed to lack a certain lustre. Boy, was I wrong. The most impressive thing on (new) leading man Theo James' resumé may have been Underworld: Awakening, but he truly shines on Golden Boy. The CBS/CTV show chronicles Walter Clark (James), a cop who rises quickly through the ranks from officer to homicide detective to police commissioner for the NYPD in a matter of a decade. The series is told in a unique way, where each episode starts with present-day police commissioner Clark and those who have questions about how he g ...
