For an actor to get a recurring TV gig from season to season and still be able to change characters and stories, well, that sounds like a dream job, right? And don’t get Lili Taylor wrong, she is delighted to work with showrunner John Ridley on the limited series “American Crime” from season to...

'American Crime' Is A Fine Show, And We Have Absolutely, Positively No Idea Where It's Going
Huffington Post - 10 months
Warning: contains spoilers from previously aired episodes. ABC’s “American Crime” has added another superlative to its resume this spring. After a couple of years as one of TV’s most ambitious and best series, it has now also become TV’s strangest. ”American Crime” wraps up its third season Sunday at 10 p.m. ET, though creator John Ridley may need divine intervention this time to tie together everything. Since the two previous seasons made no effort to resolve every drama, which was fine because real life never resolves everything, we don’t expect a full set of neat bows around season three, either. But this latest “American Crime” has jumped around so much it could have been subtitled “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof II.” In season three as in the previous two, “American Crime” tackles big, uncomfortable issues in a way that broadcast networks almost always avoid. It’s been a strong, admirable series, and ABC deserves credit for sticking with it despite modest ratings. T...

ABC's <i>American Crime</i> Once Again Pokes Into Our Uncomfortable Places, and That's Good
Huffington Post - about 2 years
If you want to see what a "big swing" really looks like on prime-time television, check out the second season of ABC's American Crime, which premieres Thursday night at 10. "Big swing" has become a buzzword du jour in the TV biz, code for a show that commits the financial and talent resources to tackle a tough issue in an ambitious, unblinking way. A gratifying number of shows have aimed for that in recent years, with varying degrees of success. The Walking Dead works, The Slap did not. American Crime put itself on the list last year with its first season, and it only gets more solid in season 2. A big chunk of the credit goes to lead characters Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman, who were terrific in Season 1 and just as good this second time around. While it's an ensemble show, certain key characters have to work, and once Huffman and Hutton have nailed down the foundation, it gives everything else a solid footing. Huffman plays Leslie Graham, headmistress of a private...

Denver Film Festival's Wonder Women: Cast Your Vote for This Cast of Characters
Huffington Post - over 2 years
The career arcs of Meryl Streep and Mary Louise Wilson have taken decidedly different trajectories. But their paths as actors intersect this week at the 38th Denver Film Festival, which opens Wednesday (Nov. 4) and continues through Nov. 15. While the festival will offer more than 250 movies from around the world, including features, documentaries, shorts, panels and many other events, Streep and Wilson proudly represent their profession in two films that go their disparate ways to carry a similarly powerful message. And if this might finally be considered the cinematic Year of Women, they both deserve to have their day. But guess who has the bigger part? Thanks to performers like Streep, Wilson and fellow actors who were called "actresses" to differentiate them from men, women in filmmaking are getting the attention in 2015 that's long overdue. If only earning equal pay was part of the package. At least festivals like Denver's are stating their case again by showcasing...

'Almost Human' Is Almost Perfect
Huffington Post - over 4 years
At first glance, "Almost Human" has a little "Total Recall"/"Blade Runner" going on. And while that might make the new Fox show seem dated, on the contrary, the futuristic cop series works because there is absolutely nothing like it on television. Sure, the buddy cop genre has been tackled to death, as has the partners-who-clash concept, but "Almost Human" is so delightfully different because of two very important things: the impeccable writing and the two leads. Karl Urban ("Star Trek") and Michael Ealy ("Common Law," another cop dramedy that centred on feuding partners -- but didn't work) make a wonderful team as Det. John Kennex and android Dorian, respectively. There were hiccups initially, of course. In Sunday's premiere, John was apprehensive of any robot partner and we understood why, but after tossing his latest robo-partner out of the car, he was eventually paired with Dorian and they seem to be a match made in high-tech heaven (well, a 2048 heaven filled with hovercraft ca...
