69th Annual Emmy Award Nominations Announced

Hollywood, CA: July 13, 2017

The Nominees for the 69th Annual Emmy awards were announced this morning in Hollywood.

Although Game of Thrones has been one of the highest-nominated series in recent years, other dramas didn’t have to worry about competing against the HBO show this time around: The drama wasn’t eligible this year because its sixth season premiere (which is on Sunday) is after the cutoff date.

While a number of TV industry figures learned the exciting news that their work is up for Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning, several high-profile, eligible shows were left out.

Series not nominated for Emmys in major categories this year include The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Insecure, The Good Fight, The Big Bang Theory, Mr. Robot and The Young Pope.

From TV To Indie Films, Michael Grant Is Doing It All

by Peter Hughes

Young actor, MICHAEL GRANT  pulls his black Mini Cooper into a parking spot at the same time I am trying to find a place to park myself in a dark garage below a Beverly Hills cafe.

“Hey, Michael,” I call out, never having met the man in person, but having recently seen his acting chops in the fine, new, currently unreleased drama, “Fair Haven,” he looks much like he did in the movie.

We shake hands and head 10659095_520949571370766_6154814187858732891_oupstairs to order breakfast, finding ourselves relegated to an outside table where not even the hot, high octane coffee I am sipping keeps me warm on this unusually brisk morning in March.

My early rapport with Michael also seems just a little bit on the cool side.  He is soft spoken and seemingly introverted, but as we play the get to know you game his sweet side begins to seep through and it doesn’t take long to warm up to this kid.

His backstory is not all that unusual. The son of a doctor in Tennessee, he and his sister Stephanie, along with their mom, Anna, made the move to California five years ago, initially to launch Stephanie into the world of acting.  A classically trained pianist and lifelong musician, then 14-year-old Michael also decided that, since he was in Hollywood,  he too might give acting a try.  He soon landed an agent and his early auditions quickly gave him the confidence that he was looking for.

“It was when I came very close to landing a lead on a Disney show called, “Kickin’ It” that I 10456086_478567745608949_7788342373032352340_nrealized I can do this,” he explains.  Now, five years and many acting workshops later, Michael is on an upward trajectory with strong supporting roles in the features, “Where Hope Grows” in which he plays a cruel bully, and “Still Life,” an indie film dealing with high school kids figuring out their future.  “Where Hope Grows” recently premiered at the Dallas Film Festival and has since been picked up for theatrical distribution by Roadside Attractions.

Perhaps his most valuable credit to date has been as a series regular on seasons 4 and 5 of “The Secret Life of The American Teenager” a show that has not only given him some financial stability, but has also brought him some fans.  He has since guest starred on various other TV shows,  slowly building an impressive resume for a young actor who has only just turned 19.

But the purpose of our meeting today is to talk about “Fair Haven,” a film where Michael gets to do the heavy lifting.  He plays the role of “James,” a musically prodigy who has been sent by his father to ex-gay-conversion therapy where they try to scare the gay out of him and return him to his family full of Jesus.  Stopping in to see his father on his way to study at the prestigious music academy, Berklee, the character discovers that his old man has spent his college fund, virtually trapping the boy in the narrow-minded confines of his small town.  James goes to work for his dad on the farm and begins the charade of dating girls.  Along the way he runs into his best friend and one time boyfriend, “Charlie,” well portrayed 10387167_487170941415296_5077640384864648015_oanother young actor, Josh Green.

So what was it about this project that appealed to him, I ask?

“The story by the film’s director Kerstin Karlhuber and the script by Jack Bryant was so well written that it immediately spoke to me.  After reading it I put myself on tape. I read some scenes and played the piano and sent it off to the casting director.  As luck would have it I landed the role and soon found myself in the town of Victor, New York making this movie.

And how was the shoot?  “Short and fast paced.  I was in most of the scenes.  I had very little down time and when I did I kept mostly to myself.  This was my first lead and I knew the responsibility I was a carrying but truthfully, by the end of the film I was emotionally drained.  I remember calling my sister from my hotel room and telling her I don’t know if I can muster the energy for my remaining scenes, I was that exhausted, but somehow I did and we got it done.”

Having seen a rough cut of this film, I can say that Michael’s portrayal MG (1)of “James” is poignant and vulnerable, a trait that he was now allowing me a glimpse of as our outdoor breakfast chat continued.

We switch gears to talk about his life in L.A.  How does he spend his time?

“I study.  Watch a lot of classic movies.  My parents recently gave me a boxed set of films from the 50s and 60s.  I loved them, especially enjoy foreign films.  Truffaut, Godard, Andrei Tarkovski.  Brilliant directors.”  What about hobbies or pastimes?  “Basketball.  I’m a big NBA fan.”

So what is it about acting that made him put his classical music training on the backburner for now?  “Acting is a craft of the heart,” he tells me.  “It’s my chance for real artistic expression.   Although the television work I’ve done is important, I hope to be able to continue my current momentum as an actor in indie films.  I think features give me a chance to be a part of perhaps more meaningful stories. I’ve definitely grown as a person doing these last three films.  On “Still Life” in particular I made some amazing friends.  People I hope to know for a long time to come.”

So whose career would he likeFairHaven_Poster_03 to emulate?  Which directors would he love to work with?  “Terrence Malick for sure.  I loved “The Tree of Life.”  Wish I could have been in that one.   Chris Nolan, David Fincher, those are probably some other favorites that come to mind.  As far as actors, I really admire Ryan Gosling’s work and the way he has managed his career.  Andrew Garfield is another actor I admire and reaching back a few years, Timothy Hutton who was so brilliant as a high school kid in Robert Redford’s “Ordinary People.”

With the temperature dropping we pay our bill and stand in the parking lot to warm up in the sunshine as we say our goodbyes.  I’ve enjoyed this interview.  Michael’s turned out to be a cool guy who is setting the foundations for a long lasting acting and music career.

I climb in my car and follow him out of the garage.  He zips away in his little Mini Cooper, perhaps to continue chasing the dream.

From where I’m sitting I’m willing to bet he finds it.

Better Call Saul Episode 5 – Alpine Shepherd Boy

Review by: Mark Salcido

Last we left off; Chuck fought all odds and faced his fears head on. He marched into hell to retrieve what so desired and his deepest hearts. He battled all terrors of man made weapons to quench his thirst for knowledge. Chuck stepped at the foot of theImage 6 mountains of madness only to come out on top. His body mind and soul ached all at once. But was it all worth it? Yes.

But to the rest of us, he just looked like a crazy man covered in an aluminum blanket taking a copy of the local newspaper from his neighbor’s driveway. That’s what his old lady neighbor saw as well and so the cops come a knocking on Chuck’s door.

Welcome back to Better Call Saul.

This week’s episode didn’t start with the ALPHA FLASHBACK but picks up right where it left us. Let’s start off by saying that this was a not a very “technical” episode. There were no series of grand shots or awesome angles that the audience had never seen before. There was however, a bad ass transition but we’ll get to that later.

This was more of a “lets follow the results of Jimmy’s actions” episode. In doing so, we get a colorful cast of would be clients for Jimmy. Steps in his first potential client; Big Ricky Sipes.

Automatically you can guess from the name that this guy loves his unnecessary military laced civilian vehicles (I.E. Armored Jeep and Hummer) and to hunt. This guy is the right Image 10wing America to the umpth degree. Big Ricky believes that Jimmy is the lawyer he wants for his cause. “I want succeed from the United States”. This causes pause for Jimmy until the promise of being hired as retainer. A retainer totaling to a million dollars; five hundred thousand up front five hundred thousand when they win. Shit, this is the opportunity was looking for. Until the money is presented to Jimmy, which is stack and stacks of 100 dollar bills with Big Ricky printed on it…I laughed as fast and hard at the same rate of Jimmy speeding off in his car. Next client.

Rollins J. Cox. Jimmy decides to try is had at maybe doing patent law with this client. Seems this client has come up with a great idea. A method that helps parents teach their kids to be pointy trained; an idea probably worth millions. Until Rollins gives Jimmy a demonstration. Take a dump and the voice box throws a bit of encourage to the tune of “Ooohh yeah that’s the way.” and “Gosh you’re big, you’re so big” and  “Fill me Chandler put it in me”. What 1-3 year old doesn’t want to hear that when they’re dropping a load?  Any other lawyer would laugh this client off, but not Jimmy.  Jimmy still Image 12tries will find a way to sell this device by suggesting the people of the Pacific Rim nation would buy this…hehehe “rim”. Alright, enough of the toilet humor. Rollins, who probably has sex through a bed sheet with a hole cut out(I apologize to my Amish reader or friends of Amish), calls Jimmy a perv and demands him to leave. “Hey buddy, you’re the one with the sex toilet.” Whoever wrote that, I’m letting you know I’m stealing that comeback from Jimmy.

The next scene must’ve been titled “Slow”. Slow for the elderly client to come down the stairs and slow to reach Jimmy in her living room. The old lady, who reminds me of the typical tropes of someone’s grandma, (useless trinkets and a roll of money in her coin purse) in this scene is saying something about the show; a slow burn. The lady is slow down the stairs, slow to meet Jimmy in her living room and is slow in counting the cash and paying Jimmy. Slow burn for a well deserved payment.

So we have another alone time with Kim and Jimmy. There’s Image 7not much development here but it is enjoyable when these two interact. It looks as when with every episode they become more and more comfortable. I mean you just don’t paint anybody’s toe nails unless they’re someone you care about. Or being paid to do and I don’t think is aiming for that career. Thanks to a suggestion from Kim, that actually might be in Elderly law.

Let’s jump back to what happened to Chuck. The cops had broken down door to his home, believing Chuck was a tweaker or a squatter. He’s tased and brought to the hospital. A great slow down to this comedic centric episode. Chuck’s condition starts to be questioned from the doctors to Kim and even possibly Jimmy. When Howard comes to the hospital to check on his old friend Chuck, Jimmy is there to intervene. Their back and forward is there to remind us that neither side will budge in their dispute and help remind of us of Jimmy’s commitment and trust to his brother.

Back to the elderly law idea, Jimmy takes notes as best as he can from a master on how to approach potential elder clients. From the master,Image 11 Mattlock. So Jimmy dawns his Mattlock light grey suit, cleverly puts his calling card at the bottom of every Jell-O cup (actually slow clamped when I saw the Jell-O) and makes his way to an old folks home to stir up new business. He even puts on a southern accent in his “Hello” for good measure. Any man who’s this clever deserves my business. But still, not my trust.

Seeing that Jimmy has finally found his calling, he makes his normal rounds at the court house but not before stopping at the entry gates with Mike to greet him. Jimmy hands him a new business card that says “Need a will? Call McGill”. This is when the bad ass transition I had mentioned earlier comes in. When Jimmy leaves, its night, but the transformation from day to night is so perfectly seamless. Almost like no edit was made. That, was fucking awesome.

With the transition also comes a change of story from Jimmy to Mike. As Mike’s shift ends he makes a trip to a local diner and to a mysterious woman’s home. They cross stare without saying a word and Mike heads home.  When Mike rests in his lounge chair, a knock is at the front door. Mike’s opens Image 8it and his greeted by two detectives and two cops. Mike: “Long way from home are you?” Guy at door: “You and me both.” End. All that screams is “What the fuck?” Mike’s past is catching up to him and it looks like the next episode will be Mike centric. I’m already salivating at the idea.

Like I said early, this is not a very “wowing” technical episode, par from one transition, but it feels like a break from everything from the previous episodes. Like a side step from the journey into a bit of shenanigans, all to bring us back on course into these characters lives and history. A filler episode, but still one worth watching.

Next episode is titled “Five-O” and I’m sure it’ll be a good one. So come back here and feed your Better Call Saul reviewing fiening next time.

“Better Call Saul” – It’s All Good, Man!

Season 1, Episode 4 – “Hero”

TV Review by: Mark Salcido

Since this entire series is essentially a giant flashback, I’m going to differentiate when the shows go further back into Jimmy’s life by calling it an ALPHA FLASH.

I’m sure you’ve seen the episode so we don’t have to recap everything. Let’s just hit the important parts.

The Alpha Flashbacks seems to become a staple of the show that I like more and more. This one especiallybetter-call-saul-episode-104-photos-howard-fabian-kim-seehorn-590 - Copy for two reasons: 1. The obvious but clever meaning of the name Saul Goodman. Say it slow with me “It’s All Good, Man”, very nice touch. 2. Jimmy had a partner in one of his scheme that I’m pretty sure is an example of term “Chekov’s Gun”.

When we come back to the Kettlemans, Jimmy and the revelation; the back and forward is priceless. Everyone is either trying to stumblingly explain or stumblingly gain something for their own selfish needs. It’s completely hilarious when the Kettlemans try to justify their thievery by considering it a form of reparations and even throwing in the word “slavery” to further their justification. So of course the Kettlemans try to bribe Jimmy with a few blocks of hundred dollar stacks. Jimmy only believes himself to be a good man, instead wants them as clients. But the Kettleman’s won’t budge and cement their stance with the comment “Because you’re the kind of lawyer guilty people hire”…ouch. There goes another kink at of “Good Guy Jimmy” armor.

As the show progress, Jimmy continues to mold cdn.indiewire.comfurther into Saul Good man. One example is Jimmy pushing back when Nacho, still not believing Jimmy’s innocence, by straight calling Nacho an idiot. Even demanding that Nacho “Thank” Jimmy for suggesting how next time not to get caught.

Jimmy, taking the money bribe from the Kettlemans, still doesn’t want believe himself to be a crook. So what does he do? Considers it as lawyer and consolation fees. “Upon this rock I will build my church” he tells himself.  It’s great how he uses some of the cash to still give the finger and steal some business from the well established competition of HHM and Howard Hamlin played by Patrick Fabian. If you can’t beat them, be like them. Up comes the comical lookalike Hamlin and HHM billboard advertisement and down comes the summons to stop the trademark infringement, delivered to Jimmy by Kim.

The interaction between Kim and Jimmy continues to grow with each episode as potential love interest which is great on an awkward subtle level. She leaves message for Jimmy for a possible date, he mentions to her that she’s worth more than where she works and that “somebody cares about here… (Fake Cough) Jimmy. It’s like one or the other wants to make the first move but the awkwardness slows it to a steady crawl.

The show also is going back to the classic Breaking Bad formula of “coincidences” for their characters. When Jimmy is ordered by the courts to bring down the billboard, he takes an ustv-better-call-saul-episode-4-0opportunity to have a film crew record him in front of billboard. As he’s trying to spin this into a “David VS Goliath” story, a worker hired to remove the billboard, almost falls to his death.  Jimmy, being a HERO, leaps into action to save the worker while onlookers gather around. Media picks up the story and the clients come knocking for Jimmy’s services.

Lastly, we finally step into Chuck’s fragile mind as he steps out of his comfort zone just to fulfill his need for the local newspaper that Jimmy was trying to hide from Chuck. The moment he makes that first step out of his, the camera goes from steady cam to extreme shaky close up with jarring music and sounds that rushes you right into Chuck’s head and back out.

Chuck, who’s been suggesting Jimmy create his own legacy and not use his brother’s, finds out about the billboard and the issue of trust between the brothers is now set.

It seems like Jimmy may be already beginning to burn more bridges and bits and piece of his “Good Guy” persona as he tries to build his empire. The words this rock in “Upon this rock I will build my church” quote might eventually have to be changed to “these bones” with the path Jimmy is setting for himself.

Come back for more dissection of the mind and world of Saul Goodman.

“Better Call Saul.” A TV Review

Season 1, Episode 3.  “Nacho”

Reviewed by: Mark Salcido

BETTER CALL SAUL premiered on AMC on February 8, 2015.

Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, the show is a spin-off, prequel, and sequel to “Breaking Bad” which was created by Gilligan.

Set in 2002, “Better Call Saul” is about small-time lawyer, James McGill, well portrayed by Bob Odenkirk, seven years before his appearance on Breaking Bad–though events during and after the original series are also explored.

Before I get started on this review of episode 3, you might be wondering, “where the reviews for episode 1 and 2” might be found? Well my mouse clicking friend, there is no review for those episodes. It’s not because I’m lazy, it is because if you are reading this article, you are already watching the show and do not need to be told to do so. And if you have 1423600761166not jump on this very stable and very worthy band wagon, what the hell are you doing? Go watch it…now on to the review.

Since the shows premise is to tell us the early years of Jimmy McGill who would later be known as Saul Goodman, it’s not afraid to let us go even further back. We find a more coherent Chuck (Jimmy’s brother) as he is called on once again to help Jimmy out of a jam that may follow him for the rest of the life. This scene reversals what we have known so far of the brother’s relationship. Chuck, the prodigal lawyer son and Jimmy, the fuck up. As we jump back to the present, Jimmy is much better off, but not far from finding himself in another jam.

On last week’s episode, Nacho, a man with ties to the criminal underworld, presented a proposition for Jimmy that might be too good to pass. Find out whether or not the Kettlemans (Jimmy’s missed opportunity clients) did indeed steal the money they embezzled and if so, where is it?  better-call-saul-episode-103-post-jimmy-odenkirk-9801Jimmy walks that fine line of “concerned citizen” and “opportunist” when he calls his friend Kim (a lawyer at his brother’s firm HHM played by Rhea Seehorn).

Jimmy makes an anonymous call to warn the Kettlemans and things are set in motion that may blow up in his face. When the Kettlemans disappear, Jimmy is pursued by the police when a detained Nacho calls him his lawyer. Once the two are alone, Nacho blames Jimmy for the Kettlemans’ disappearance, believing that Jimmy is working with another crew and that Nacho is to be the fall guy. Jimmy races against the clock to find the Kettlemans when Nacho presents him two options; get Nacho out of jail or Jimmy won’t see tomorrow.

Jimmy continues his parking sticker debate with parking lot guard Mike (Jonathan Banks)better-call-saul-episode-103-post-jimmy-odenkirk-9801 to a point where Jimmy says “fuck it” and dashes out of the parking lot without paying the fee or getting the right amount of stickers.

When Jimmy makes it to the Kettlemans’ home to view the crime scene, he is able to deduce that maybe the family staged the kidnapping and is hiding.

Though Jimmy may try his hardest to convince Kim as well as the detectives working the case, they don’t buy it. With his theory in hand, Jimmy hurries back to tell Nacho only to be stopped by an already annoyed Mike. A small physical confrontation, started by Jimmy, ends with Jimmy at the other end of arm twist that would make any man submit.

The detectives use the assault in hopes that Jimmy will finally help make the disappearance case stick to Nacho.

Before Jimmybetter.call_.saul_.thm_1 can be taken away to booking, he yells out his findings, making sure Nacho can hear it in the hopes of saving his ass. Mike eventually decides to have the charges dropped.

Jimmy, shocked by Mike’s help and asks, ‘why”? Mike reveals a bit of his past by telling Jimmy of a similar case he had as a detective. Same results, and the people where closer to home than anyone suspected.

Jimmy finds a camping decal placed on one of the Kettlemans’ vehicles and makes the trek through a desert trail behind their home.  He stumbles upon the Kettlemans; gleefully singing camp songs.

Jimmy makes a phone call to Kim and confronts the Kettlemans only to have a struggle ensue when Jimmy grabs one of their camping bags and rips it open, revealing the embezzled money.

This episode leads you to believe that this would be a Nacho heavy episode but it’s easily stolen by Mike and the beginnings of his relationship with Jimmy. As Mike becomes a more of a crucial character in this show’s universe, I only hope more of his past and badassism becomes revealed.

Kim’s history with Jimmy is sprinkled a tidbit in an early conversation with the line “You’re calling me to talk dirty again, are you?” Along with a bit of comfortable back and forward with the two, you can bet there was definitely “something” there between the two.

Everyone here, expect for Mike, thinks they’re pulling one over each other only to show that maybe, they aren’t as bright as they might think. Nacho driving his own vehicle on the night in question, Jimmy trying a ridiculous muffled voice when he calls the Kettlemans, and even the Kettlmans themselves trying to hide their crooked ways.

Plots have become thickened and more characters have been brought in to keep the tires spinning on this enjoyable ride of “Better Call Saul.”

The score, writing and direction is awesome as it gets you more into the life of a good lawyer turned sleazy andI highly recommend you tune in for next week’s episode called “Hero”.

“Better Call Saul” airs Monday nights at 10pm on AMC.

 

 

 

“Two and a Half Men” Actor Bites the Hand that Feeds Him

Los Angeles: November 26, 2012

Angus T. Jones who plays the “half” in the mega hit TV series, “Two and a Half Men” is now bashing the racy sitcom in a video clip released by the Forerunner Christian Church.

“If you watch “Two And A Half Men,” please stop watching “Two And A Half Men,” the religious nineteen year old says in a testimonial. “I’m on Two And A Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth…. If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the (Satan’s) plan,” says Jones. “You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show.”

Jones, who earns more than $300,000 per episode, goes on to warn people about the impact of television and shows like Men. “People say it’s just entertainment,” he says. ”Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch.”

There is no word on whether Jones plans to return the millions he has earned on the show since 2003.

CBS and Warner Bros TV, which produces Men, had no comment on Jones’ rant.

OMG! A New Talk Show in Hollywood!

Watch out Conan, Dave and Jay. Transplanted Australian TV maven, Steven Brandon, has entered the talk show arena with his brand new internet program, TV TALK TONIGHT.

With his fellow Aussie side-kick, Carly Einfeld, 26556_114494341896399_114401831905650_263297_6445861_nBrandon talks about something he could certainly hold a PHD in. Television. This kid knows his stuff. From the sound of him, he could boost the national Nielson ratings all on his own.

Compelling and lighthearted, TV Talk Tonight reviews shows such as Survivor, Lost, Celebrity Apprentice, Glee, Brothers & Sisters and Big Bang Theory.  In the current show Brandon and Einfeld bust Jack Bauer for his real time sexual escapade on 24. “Come on Jack Bauer. We know you can do better that eight minutes”.

Along with the news and  gossip, the show has had guests such as Ariana Savalas, daughter of award-winning, actor, Telly Salavas, (Kojak) and Rob Cesternino, a former contestant from the show Survivor.

“A” list talent has not yet discovered this program.  Maybe they should.

Colorful, expressive and certainly lovable, Mr. Brandon dishes the dirt and shows his vast TV knowledge on each episode.

Getting flack for saying “Oh, my God” one time too many, 26276_119013778111122_114401831905650_281771_111388_n1Brandon had to eat a hot pepper on the latest show as punishment. Sweating with tears streaming down his face, he finished the show like a trooper.

Filmed in someone’s apartment, the kitchy set compliments the fun filled ten minute program.

A catchy musical theme by Josh Brandon, a cool animated opening by Stephen Leonard and ably directed by Christopher James Burke, TV Talk Tonight is a fun and fast paced internet show that should not be missed.
