The Ever-Sophisticated 'Grimm' Star Bitsie Tulloch Looks Toward A Bright Future
Huffington Post - 13 days
"I love doing period pieces!" Gushed the classically stunning actress of both The Artist and Parkland, San Diego native Bitsie Tulloch, finishing the thought by saying; "When you get to be in wardrobe from another time it's so much easier to envision being there." And luckily for the enchanting starlet, her timeless beauty and poised talent can translate to any moment in history from the renaissance to the present. Elegant and statuesque in a Mad Men like way, Tulloch could very easily party with Don Draper and Holly Golightly one second, then immediately transform into an upper-class mademoiselle ready to walk down the stairs of the Titanic the next, while always managing to be able to play someone completely contemporary that the every girl can relate to in modern day. And perhaps that is why the fan-favorite actress has become so vehemently adored with such a loyal fan-base. On the cult phenomenon Grimm, Tulloch has really managed to tap into the sweet spot of all of her mos ...

Denzel Washington's Fences: Celebrating August Wilson's Masterpiece
Huffington Post - 2 months
How do you bring the brilliant, Pulitzer Prize winning Fences, to the screen? You stick close to August Wilson's jazz poetry. This week Fences was celebrated with a screening at Lincoln Center's jazz venue, Rose Hall. The movie's director Denzel Washington led his killer hand-picked cast including Viola Davis, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Mykelti Williamson, Russell Hornsby--Denzel Washington wanted his actors to stand with him. At the Tavern on the Green after party Denzel Washington spoke about his direction, opening up the stage play, especially allowing more for Viola Davis's Rose, as he did in one scene when his character Troy in a rage, wreaks havoc in the kitchen. Rose is left perusing the damage left by her emotionally destructive husband. Viola Davis is much praised for her Tony Award winning role Rose, now much touted for Best Actress Oscar. Jovan Adepo, a young actor who plays Troy's son, pulled Phylicia Rhashad by the hand to meet his mother, proud of this 27 year old. ...

The "Fences" Cast on Denzel, Viola, and Bringing the Pulitzer-Winning Play to the Screen
Huffington Post - 2 months
My favorite film of the year is "Fences," with a screenplay by the late August Wilson, based on his Tony and Pulitzer award-winning play. It stars many of the actors who appeared in the acclaimed 2012 Broadway production, including Denzel Washington, who plays former Negro League baseball player Troy and also directed, and Viola Davis, who plays Troy's wife, Rose. It was a thrill to get a chance to talk with four of the stars of the film, Stephen McKinley Henderson (Bono, Troy's best friend), Mykelti Williamson (Gabriel, Troy's brother, disabled by a WWII injury), Russell Hornsby (Lyons, Troy's older son), and Jovan Adepo (Cory, Troy's younger son). Williamson on the respect and care that goes into playing a character with cognitive impairment: The cognitive issue is TBI, which is Traumatic Brain Injury. On a scale of 1 to 100 it depends on how you are affected some people at 15 percent, some at 12, some 42, and so on. So you have to tell a story so I was actually led by ...

Grimm -The Beast is Back in The Bottle Imp
Boom Tron - over 4 years
At the end of last month I told Grimm fans to expect more coffee in their lives in season 2 of NBC’s supernatural/police show, and we get just that in this tv teaser for “The Bottle Imp”, this coming Friday’s episode of Grimm. That’s right, Adalind is back and going all beast mode, but there does seem to be good news for detective Nick Burkhardt, as Juliette wakes up – though she does remember some stray kisses going on while she was out. In this episode we also get the guest appearance of Josh Stewart, fresh off taking order from Bane in Batman: Dark Knight Rises. “The Bottle Imp” (2.07) episode summary from NBC goes like this: After investigating a grisly murder, clues lead Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) to a seemingly unstable father (guest star Josh Stewart) who is on the run with his daughter. As they learn more about the case they realize that the girl’s father may be the least of their worries. At the spice shop, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) finds out f ...

Coyotl Pointing in Grimm Season 2
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Getting a little Grimm at Boomtron for a minute with this peek into the upcoming second season of NBC’s supernatural/cop show which actually kicks back off tonight. It is not of the show’s star (David Giuntoli) or partner (Russell Hornsby), or even Nick’s girl, instead it’s a scene featuring on of the Grimm’s season 2 guest stars. Back in June we told you Mark Pellegrino would be turning up in Grimm, which makes total sense because he seemingly has to be in every speculative fiction program. He’s just making his rounds. Specifically, this image, which debuted via TVline,  is tagged as from the third episode of the season, titled “Bad Moon Rising”. Pellegrino looks pretty animated here (and I guess drives a Dodge), playing a high school friend of Hank (the aforementioned Hornsby) named Jarold Kempfer, who as we told you before is also a coyotl. Only Hank doesn’t know that. Yet. Pellegrino will be joined by a host of guest stars this season, including the recent addition of cutie K ...

'Cosby Show' Alum Talks About Her Return To TV
Popeater - over 4 years
NEW ORLEANS — Actress Tempestt Bledsoe says she's thrilled to be returning to network television on a show that portrays "a positive black family" similar to the long-running hit sitcom she was part of for roughly eight years – "The Cosby Show." "That show was my childhood," said Bledsoe, who played middle child Vanessa Huxtable in the NBC show that also starred Bill Cosby, Phylicia Rashad, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Lisa Bonet and Keshia Knight Pulliam. "It did so many things. It greatly influenced the kinds of projects I did. It helped form my core values, like my work ethic." Bledsoe and actor Anthony Anderson spoke Friday at the Essence Music Festival about the new show they're starring in, "Guys with Kids," which premieres this fall on NBC. In an interview after their appearance, the co-stars told The Associated Press they were thrilled the show will spotlight a "positive black family on network television." "We just don't have that right now, not on network ...
