ABC Orders The Muppets and Ken Jeong Comedies, Oil Boom, '80s L.A. Crime, FBI Dramas, and More
Yahoo News - over 1 year
If you like days when networks pick up new shows, then today was your favorite day ever. Networks got a headstart on the Upfronts by ordering several new shows, and ABC just made the biggest order of them all! The Alphabet added three new comedies and six new dramas to its 2015-2016 season, including a reboot of The Muppets and another Shonda Rhimes drama. Stay busy, girl! Let's start with the comedies before things get too serious. The Muppets follows the personal lives of Jim Henson's lovable puppets in and out of the show that made them famous in a documentary-style presentation. We'll be witness to their love lives, professional aspirations, and everything in between. It's billed as a more adult take on The Muppets, but also kid friendly. Ummm, okay! Dr. Ken stars Community's Ken Jeong as a brilliant doctor with terrible bedside manner. But that's not all! He's also a husband and father of two, and he has a propensity for driving those around him crazy. Suzy Nakamura, Tisha-Campbel ...

New Shows You Should Watch If Your Favorite Show Was Canceled
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
Mid-season premieres are upon us. Cold War-based "The Assets" and crime-fighting "Killer Woman" are already in full swing, but there are a few new shows that seem to harken back to some of our favorite canceled ones. Remember "Ben & Kate"? Cut way too short. "The Secret Circle"? Okay, we know this CW witch drama was a little over-the-top. We won't even get started on "Happy Endings." This year, it seems like the networks took note of a few of the shows they let go. Here's what new shows you should watch if your favorite was canceled. If you miss "Happy Endings," try "Mixology" Nothing can fill the hole that was left in our hearts when ABC canceled "Happy Endings." But the network's new show from Ryan Seacrest might (and we really mean, might) help you get over "Happy Endings." "Mixology" follows 10 singles in a bar. Yep, the entire season takes place in a bar, with flashbacks and backstories interspersed. Sizzling one-liners aplenty, "Mixology" may take a while to find its foot ...

Scott Mendelson: Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin: Films I Like or Love Despite Finding Them Morally or Ideologically Objectionable
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Let's pretend for a moment that Zero Dark Thirty does in fact do all of the things that its critics, many of whom have not even seen the film, are claiming.  Let's pretend that it endorses torture on a practical and/or moral level.  Let's pretend that it implies/states that information gleaned from torture was essential in catching Osama Bin Laden and would not have been discovered any other way.  Does that (incorrect, I'd argue) interpretation automatically negate its worth as quality film making?  There has been much discussion of the alleged morality of Bigelow and Boal's superb procedural, much of it penned by those who believe that either it is 'pro-torture' or at least will be interpreted as much by general moviegoers (a classic case of 'I'm smart enough to understand but they aren't').  The question for those critics becomes whether its alleged sins negates its worth and/or can be separated from its qualities as a film.  But quite frankly, it's more than possible to ...

The Easy Way or the Hard Way
Psych Central - over 4 years
Nicholas Cage in "Gone in 60 Seconds" One of my all-time favorite movies is the Nicholas Cage classic “Gone in 60 Seconds.” This is not just because Nicholas Cage and my brother Adam could be identical twins, either. In the movie, Cage plays car thief Randall “Memphis” Raines. His nemesis, Detective Castlebeck (played by Delroy Lindo) and Castlebeck’s sidekick (played by none other than a younger Timothy Olyphant, aka Justified’s Raylan Givens) spend what seems to be every waking minute trying to bust his chops. Continually throughout the film, you hear Castlebeck muttering, “The easy way or the hard way, Raines….the easy way or the hard way.” I must have watched the movie a dozen times before I realized that that was my favorite line. It felt like something I’d been asking myself for most of my (now) 41 years. Me with my brother Adam (aka "The Young Nick Cage") I mean, don’t get me wrong – after 15 years with anorexia and bulimia, and a good decade longer battling ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Delroy Lindo
1952
Delroy Lindo was born in 1952 in Eltham, south-east London, the son of Jamaican parents who had emigrated to Britain.
He was brought up in nearby Lewisham and got interested in acting as a child in a Nativity play. His mother was a nurse and his father worked in various jobs. As a teenager, he and his mother moved to Toronto, Canada. When he was sixteen, they moved to San Francisco. At the age of 24, Lindo started acting studies at the American Conservatory Theater, graduating in 1979.
1976
Lindo's film debut came in 1976 with the British comedy Find the Lady, followed by two other roles in films, including an Army Sergeant in More American Graffiti (1979).
He quit film for 10 years to concentrate on theatre acting.
1982
In 1982 he debuted on Broadway in "Master Harold" and the Boys, directed by the play's South African author Athol Fugard.
1988
By 1988 Lindo had earned a Tony nomination for his portrayal of Herald Loomis in August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone.
Lindo returned to film in the 1990s, acting alongside Rutger Hauer and Joan Chen in the cult science fiction film Salute of the Jugger (1990), which has become a cult classic. Although he had turned down Spike Lee for a role in his debut Do the Right Thing, Lee cast him as Woody Carmichael in the drama Crooklyn (1994), which brought him notice. Together with his other roles with Lee - as the West Indian Archie, a psychotic gangster, in Malcolm X, and a starring role as a neighbourhood drug dealer in Clockers - he became established in his film career. Other films in which he has starring roles are Barry Sonnenfeld's Get Shorty (1995), Ron Howard's Ransom (1996) and Soul of the Game (1996), as the baseball player Satchel Paige. As a character actor, Lindo has readily taken on roles as treacherous bad guys as well as those of trustworthy professionals.
1995
Lindo had a small role in the 1995 science fiction/action film Congo, playing the corrupt Captain Wanta.
Lindo was not credited for the role, but one of his lines in the film, "Stop eating my sesame cake!", has become an internet meme. In the British film, Wondrous Oblivion (2003), directed by Paul Morrison, he starred as Dennis Samuels, the father of a Jamaican immigrant family in London in the 1950s; he coaches his children and the son of a neighbour Jewish family in cricket, earning their admiration in a time of strained social relations. Lindo said he made the film in honour of his parents, who had similarly moved to London in those years.
2007
In 2007, Lindo began an association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, California, when he directed Tanya Barfield's play The Blue Door.
2008
In the autumn of 2008, Lindo revisited August Wilson's play, Joe Turner's Come and Gone, directing a production at the Berkeley Rep.
2010
In 2010, he played the role of elderly seer Bynum in David Lan's production of Joe Turner at the Young Vic Theatre in London.
Lindo is poised to play Marcus Garvey in an upcoming biopic of the black nationalist historical figure.
2014
Lindo starred as Alderman Ronin Gibbons in the TV series The Chicago Code (2011) and as Winter on the series Believe, which premiered in 2014.
