Royal Pains: Stuck in Traffic?

NUP_144378_0147.JPG

Season three of Royal Pains [USA, Wednesdays, 9/8C] returns, this week, with an episode called Traffic – appropriate not just for a traffic accident and a diagnosis that involves a woman who was stuck in traffic for five hours, but also for the ongoing events in the lives of the show’s main characters.

Walton Goggins Digs Into The Psyche Of Justified’s Boyd Crowder!

Walton-Goggins

Not only is Walton Goggins doing a bang-up job portraying the unpredictable Boyd Crowder on the FX hit Justified [Wednesdays, 10/9C], he is clearly delighted to be doing promotion for the show.

I had the chance to take part in a conference call Q&A with Goggins earlier this week [my third such opportunity]. Despite a glitch that obscured part of the opening question, the session was great fun – Goggins was as thoughtful, articulate and engaging as ever. Such is his enthusiasm that it is easy to believe that he would enjoy going on about the show, and Boyd, for hours – instead of the mere half hour we usually get with him.

Joelle Carter Talks Being In The Middle Of The ‘Man Storm’ On Justified!

justified-Joelle-Carter

Last week, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A session with Joelle Carter who plays Ava on FX’s hit series, Justified [Wednesdays, 10/9C]. She spoke about Ava’s survival instincts and her burgeoning relationship with Walt Goggins’ Boyd Crowder – a relationship that is unique because, in the series premiere, she had just killed her abusive husband, who was Boyd’s brother.

Just as Justified is a unique series, Carter is a unique woman, with an interesting take on her part in the series.

Justified’s Timothy Olyphant Is A Straight Shooter!

justified-season-2b

FX’s hit, Justified [Tuesdays, 10/8C], features a classic hero – filtered through Elmore Leonard’s unique style – in Raylan Givens. I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call with the series’ star, Timothy Olyphant and, as you will see, he’s tough to put one over on. Like Givens, he calls ‘em like he sees ‘em.

Warning – Olyphant does use occasional strong language.

Justified: The Complete First Season – Elmore’s Lawman Sparks Terrific DVD Release!

Justified, S1

The story of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens marks the first time that Elmore Leonard’s work has worked on television. Thanks to cable network FX, the series has been allowed to depict the quirkiness, humor and unexpected bursts violence of Leonard’s work – as well as his crackling dialogue. The first season DVD includes some excellent bonus material that goes into detail about that was done, making it well worth investigating if you’re a fan of great crime fiction and TV.

HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: Natalie Zea Is Just Getting Started on FX’s Justified!

Although Natalie Zea’s Winona hasn’t been seen that much thus far on the FX hit series Justified [Thursdays, 10/9C], it’s pretty clear that she’s an important part of the mix. Zea, who has done fine work elsewhere [Dirty Sexy Money, Eyes, The Shield], brings an unexpected weight to the role of protagonist Raylen Givens’ ex-wife – without sacrificing any of the character’s intelligence and sexiness.

I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A with her on Friday and she proved to be as smart and perceptive as her character.
