Jimmy Smits has been playing some interesting and complex characters for the past few years; Neron “Nero” Padilla in Sons of Anarchy and Miguel Prado on the 2010 season of Dexter. Now he’s Senator John Donovan in 24: Legacy and his character is running for president.
Angela Ortíz and Dan Bucantinsky
We talked to him about his new role and what we should be expecting in upcoming episodes. Look out for Smits to reprise his role as Francisco ‘Papa Fuerte’ Cruz in the second season of The Get Down, out this spring on Netflix.
We also spoke to actor/writer/producer Dan Bucantinsky, who plays computer analyst Andy Shalowitz. Bucatinsky, who played James Novak on Scandal for a few seasons, told us that he had fond memories of the show.
I didn’t get to ask him what he loved the most, acting or producing, because he has a long producing list; like being the executive producer of Who Do You Think You Are? He even author a funny book called, Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?: Confessions of a Gay Dad—“a collection of snort-milk-through-your-nose funny stories of parenthood that will obliterate the boundaries of gender and sexual orientation.”
Now watch these guys on 24: Legacy, Mondays on FOX at 8/7c.
I say it every time; I enjoy talking to this woman, actor/producer Marlene Forte. We recently caught up with her at her wonderful home, where we chatted about the projects she has done, what she’s working on and what is to come in the future.
Forte got some new followers as Celia Flores on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead. We really liked her character and wish she was back. She continues in her recurring roles on The Fosters and Superstore, and now you can see her on Fox’s APB, as well as on the upcoming Netflix’s Altered Carbon, set in the 25th century.
Other television credits include NCIS: New Orleans, Code Black; and movies like I Am Gangster, The Single Moms Club, Star Trek, and many stage productions.
“I feel like we often neglect one of the most powerful ways that we communicate and we can encourage more communication on a subject. And right now I feel like the way we talk about race in this country is broken. Maybe this will fuck shit up in the wrong way, I dunno. But I do feel like art and communication is like that’s the one tool we have against the true horrors of the world, which is violence. I hope that this is an inclusive experience and I hope that it inspires people to just talk.” — Jordan Peele on writing GET OUT
Watch the Q&A video with Chance the Rapper, Jordan Peele and some of the cast of the film; Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Milton “Lil Rel” Howery. They talked about the need of a film like this and their love for the genre.
Synopsis: Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Then check out the images from Get Out Art Gallery featuring artwork inspired by Peele’s suspense thriller. Six pieces of striking original artwork, inspired by the film, are being showcased from artists Corey Barksdale, Frank Morrison, Sindisio Nyoni, Jermaine Rogers, Sharlene Artsy, and Taj Tenfold.

Disney celebrated the in-home release of Moana on Blu-ray/DVD on March 7 and the Digital HD is available now. We were there to celebrate too.
We got to sit in on a talk with one of the directors, Ron Clements and producer Osnat Shurer, who shared with us all the extras that will be on the Moana Blu-ray version. That includes a 30-minute documentary called, Voice of the Islands—which is more than the making of the film, it’s about the people and their stories that help make Moana the classic film it’s becoming.

The story: On the surface, the young and beautiful Clara Barron (Karla Souza) seems to have everything-a great job as an OB-GYN; a great house in LA; and a big fun-loving Mexican family. But, the one thing Clara doesn’t have figured out is her love life. Pressured by a family wedding in Mexico, Clara asks a co-worker to pose as her boyfriend (Ben O’Toole) for the weekend festivities-only to be caught by surprise when her ex-boyfriend (and family favorite) suddenly shows up after disappearing from her life completely. In an adventure full of laughter, she learns that sometimes it takes the whole crazy family to help you find crazy love.

Gore Verbinski, the director of The Ring, comes a new psychological thriller, A Cure for Wellness. At first, it felt like an old Ingmar Bergman film, and then it took some turns I didn’t care for. I realized this film didn’t do it for me and I was hoping for a true psychological thriller, with that said, I’ve learned that they are films for every audience.
Synopsis: An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.
We got a chance to talk to some of the film stars, Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth, and director Gore Verbinski. The film opens on February 17.
