Heist has an incredible cast – Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Robert De Niro, Morris Chestnut, Kate Bosworth, Gina Carano, D.B. Sweeney, Dave Bautista – but between a predictable plot and some very disinterested performances, it just kinda lies there.
When Vaughn is denied a $300,000 favor by gangster/casino owner Pope, he plans and executes a heist that – as is the usual case in these things – goes awry. The manner in which it goes awry forces him and his team to take a city bus and hold its passengers hostage – leaving him to try to figure out a way to outwit Pope and get away from the police.
Heist stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Vaughn and Robert DeNiro as Pope. Co-starring are Dave Bautista, Gina Carano and Morris Chestnut. Heist will in select theaters and on demand on November 13th. Check out highly entertaining trailer following the jump.
He’s played a dying man, a ghost, a demon-killing hunter, a cop and a right-of-right-wing superhero and now, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going into private investigation as a regular on The Good Wife.

If you can’t get enough of the Winchester boys, then you will want to know about February’s five Supernatural marathons on TNT.

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”
Ike Evans risks everything in a life and death battle to rid his Miramar Playa Hotel of the mob and Ben “The Butcher” Diamond. Even if Ike’s long-shot gamble to take back his hotel succeeds, will the price of victory be too high?
Magic City returns to Starz on Friday, June 14th at 9/8C.
Magic City [Starz, Fridays, 10/9C] is about a specific time in the history of Miami, Florida. New Year’s Eve of 1958 found the city about to hit a period of ferocious growth – what with Castro’s Cuban revolution forcing thousands of Cubans to flee for lives, most winding up in Miami. Soon, and for largely the same reason, the city would be taking over from Havana as the party town of the region.
The series is based, in part, on Glazer’s memories of life in Miami at the time, and centered on the Miramar Plaza Hotel, owned and operated by Ike Evans [Morgan] – a fictional version of the famous Fontainbleau Hotel – and the deal he makes with mob boss Ben ‘The Butcher’ Diamond [Danny Huston] to achieve his dream.
Recently, Glazer and Morgan took some time to talk with a group of bloggers/journalists about the series – and maybe a little football…
After the sex, violence and political intrigue of Ancient Rome in Starz’ Spartacus series, it seems odd, yet somehow appropriate to find the same ingredients put to more nuanced use in the network’s Magic City [Fridays, 10/9C] – a series about hotelier Ike Evans and his family and their efforts to bring the magic with a legendarily luxurious hotel, the Miramar Plaza [modeled after the famous/infamous Fontainebleau Hotel].
