Sarah Jessica Parker and Blythe Danner's Frozen Assets in "The Commons of Pensacola"
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In Amanda Peet's fine playwriting debut for Manhattan Theater Club at City Center, "The Commons of Pensacola," Sarah Jessica Parker and Blythe Danner are daughter and mother locked in a domestic dilemma: Judith (Danner) is forced to scale down as her husband has been jailed for a Madoff-mode crime. Becca (Parker) arrives for Thanksgiving with a boyfriend much her junior. Her sister Ali (Ali Marsh) has broken off from their mother for mysterious reasons, so her daughter Lizzy (Zoe Levin) must sneak a visit to grandma now residing in a generic Florida condo. All would be cozy, complete with a fold out couch, except that the wrong couple ends up sleeping there. Well directed by Lynne Meadow, Parker's Becca deftly guards the freezer in a death grip when her sister arrives, and stands face frozen as certain betrayals threaten her place in the world. Danner is accustomed to playing ditzy, as she did in Noel Coward's "Tonight at 8:30," at East Hampton's Guild Hall this past summer. A little ...

'Reaching for the Moon' - The Story of Poet Elizabeth Bishop and Her Love Affair With Lota de Macedo Soares
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Reaching For The Moon, a movie I co-wrote with Julie Sayres about American poet Elizabeth Bishop and her love affair with a Brazilian woman, architect Lota de Macedo Soares, opens in New York tomorrow at the Angelika and the Paris. If you want to take your mind off local politics -- which I do for a day or two -- this might be a good film to see. Beautifully made by Oscar-nominated director Bruno Barreto, it's set in a stunningly shot Brazil of the 50s and 60s. Bishop, an orphan raised in comfortable but physically and emotionally chilly circumstances on the east coast of North America, found inspiration and a second home in a country whose national climate and character could not have been more different from her own. As an Englishman who spends a lot of time in Brazil, I understood her attraction: the country has many problems, but lack of affection is not one of them. While being about a lesbian affair at a time when that wasn't easy even in Rio, the film is just as much about ...

White Collar's Tim DeKay on Getting Peter Out of Prison and His "New Path" with Elizabeth
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
When the series returns for Season 5 on Thursday (9/8c, USA), it will be longtime FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) - not con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) - behind bars. Fall TV popularity contest: In the Season 4 finale, Peter was arrested for a crime he didn't commit: the murder of a corrupt senator (Titus Welliver) who was actually gunned down by Neal's dad, James Bennett (Treat Williams). "When I first read the season finale last year, I immediately wondered, 'How is Peter going to be able to go back to his office and be respected by the other FBI agents and have it be valid story-wise," DeKay says. "Both good and evil forces are involved with how Peter gets out of his jumpsuit," DeKay teases. Neal is extremely instrumental in helping Peter get out of prison and it makes Peter and Neal's relationship even more interesting than it was before. Certain things start to unfold about how Peter got out, DeKay teases, adding that the mystery, and the controversy, surrounding Pete ...

'White Collar' Season 5 Premiere Preview: Neal And Mozzie Scheme To Save Peter (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When "White Collar" returns for its Season 5 premiere (Thurs., Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on USA), things will look very different for our favorite semi-reformed conman Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer). His partner and friend, Peter (Tim DeKay), is currently behind bars after taking the fall for a murder that Neal's biological father, James (Treat Williams), committed at the end of last season, leaving Neal with a new FBI handler in the form of "Common Law's" Warren Kole. Naturally, Neal and his original partner in crime, Mozzie (Willie Garson), aren't prepared to leave Peter in jail, and in The Huffington Post's exclusive preview above, the two are hatching yet another elaborate scheme to free the disgraced agent. Fans can also look forward to the return of Mark Sheppard, who will reprise his role of Curtis Hagen -- an art forger last seen in the show's pilot -- in seven episodes of Season 5. Richard Thomas ("The Americans"), Zachary Booth ("Damages") and Kara Hayward ("Moonrise Kingdom") ...

DeliverLean, Taxes Your Way, Co. and Chinaman Media Network are some of the businesses that have been on Gasmy Joseph's head lately. On his mohawk, to be exact. For a year now, Joseph -- better known as Mohawk Gaz -- has been a human billboard spray painting his 10-inch high hairdo for South Florida businesses exploring new and adventurous ways to reach customers. He charges from $500 to $2,000 to paint logos or business names on his attention-grabbing mohawk. "We use him all the time. I think it's very effective, cool, fun and edgy," said Scott Harris, owner of DeliverLean, a Boca Raton-based gourmet food caterer. "He walks around, hands out flyers, engages people in conversation. He's a mobile billboard that helps sell your product." Leaders of the local chambers of commerce say they definitely haven't seen a mohawk ad business represented at their meetings lately. But they marveled at Joseph's entrepreneurial spirit, one marked by taking chances, having a vision that ...

White Collar's Season Finale Is In An Empire State of Mind Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 6:33 am, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 The hunt for a stash of evidence that could finally clear Neal's long-MIA dad sends Season 4 of USA's criminally lovable caper series White Collar out on a dramatic high point Tuesday (10/9c), both figuratively and literally. What leads the action to Manhattan's much-visited locale is a twisty con designed to help Peter (Tim DeKay) snag a hidden lockbox loaded with proof that James (Treat Williams) was framed for killing his supervising officer back in the day before shady Senator Pratt (Titus Welliver) can. Along the way, there is a staged romantic gesture that "becomes a little too real" for Matt Bomer's Neal and Hilarie Burton's Sara, a classic Mozzie (Willie Garson) moment ...

And a lot of tension ensues," Bomer said. "There's a whole web of deceit going on in the upper echelons of the FBI that they're trying to sort through, and it ends on an even more dramatic note."

The midseason finale of "White Collar" left fans with one hell of a cliffhanger; the enigmatic man known as Sam (Treat Williams) was revealed to be Neal's (Matt Bomer) father, and the key to unlocking all the secrets of our favorite conman's past. When the USA series returns with its midseason premiere (Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. EST), Neal and the audience will finally get some answers, although as you can see in the exclusive preview clip above, he might not like where they lead.

Jeryl Brunner: The Stars of the Hit TV Series Suits Talk About Suiting (and Dressing) Up
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In the USA Network series Suits, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is a superstar litigator at a piping hot New York law firm with a sleek and precise wardrobe to match. Looking for a new recruit, the cunning attorney ends up hiring Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). Ross is an out-of-the-box genius and college-dropout whose prior gig was taking LSAT (or law school entrance exams) for students. The charismatic dude even passed the New York bar exam on a dare.  As Mark Twain said, "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." And in the world of Suits, these super sharp power duds seem to define each stylish character. "The suits are like suits of armor," explains Adams. "It's crazy. I get to work in my shorts and flip flops. But when you put that suit on, your posture changes. You stand straighter. You present something different." So it was fitting that just last month, USA Network and the spiffy men's retailer MrPorter.com, joined forces to pre ...

Matt Bomer & Tim DeKay Tease 'White Collar' Season 4
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"White Collar" (Season 4 premieres Tuesday, July 10 on USA at 9 p.m. ET) is one of USA's most popular dramas, and that probably has something to do with the series' two leading men. The unique -- and sometimes comical -- partnership between sly con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) has kept viewers coming back for more season after season, week after week. "Sometimes Peter is [Neal's father] and sometimes Neal is Peter's father," Matt Bomer told a small group of reporters, including HuffPost TV, on the set of "White Collar" in June. "Sometimes they're brothers and sometime they're bros and sometime they're jilted lovers. It's a pretty comprehensive relationship." But is that all about to change? In the "White Collar" Season 4 premiere, Neal is ditching his formal suit-and-tie attire for some requisite vacation apparel -- including his dearly missed fedora -- while he and Mozzie (Willie Garson) hide out in an exotic locale. However, Nea ...

Review: Shabby Tearjerker ‘A Little Bit of Heaven’ Is (Slightly) Better Than Being Hospitalized
Film School Rejects - almost 5 years
Kate Hudson seems doomed to never get a chance to repeat her Almost Famous glory, stuck in a rut of endless romantic comedies, from the passable (Alex & Emma, How to Lose a Guy in 1o Days) to the horrific (Bride Wars, Something Borrowed). Nicole Kassell‘s A Little Bit of Heaven attempts to give Hudson just an, ahem, little bit more to work with, but the film is bogged down with too many shabby and shopworn rom-com tropes to ever rise above the sum of its tired and worn-out parts. Hudson plays Marley Corbett, who comes complete with all the hallmarks of a modern romantic comedy heroine – she’s dead-set against committed relationships (despite being quite in control of her sexual conquests), she depends on a Bridget Jones style urban family made up of friends and co-workers, she has a hip job, and she’s got a bawdy sense of humor that endears her to the most random of people. Marley is the last person you’d ever expect to get cancer (especially, as she so eloquently calls it, “as ...

Roger Corman's Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader in 3D Promises to Be Epix
Dread Central - almost 5 years
Roger Corman graced Syfy with a Sharktopus. For his foray into producing for the Epix network, the “King of the B’s” is busting out Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader (in 3D no less) and has assembled quite a cast for a movie about a giant cheerleader on a rampage. Shockingly, Roger Corman did not produce the 1950’s cult classic Attack of the 50-Foot Woman or its 1990’s remake starring Daryl Hannah. He also had nothing to do with 1995’s Attack of the 60-Foot Centerfold; that was Fred Olen Ray’s homage. Now, at the ripe old age of 86 (and still kicking), Corman is finally getting a piece of the giant woman on the attack action with Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader. Synopsis: Aspiring college cheerleader Cassie Stratford consumes an experimental drug that grants her beauty and enough athletic ability to make the cheer squad. However, the drug has an unforeseen side effect - Cassie starts to grow and grow and grow. The titular 50-foot cheerleader will be played by Miss Georgia Teen ...
