Ethan Embry Talks Netflix Comedy Series 'Grace & Frankie'

5/8/2015 2:06pm EDT
Ethan Embry Returns In Netflix's 'Grace & Frankie'
Ethan Embry isn't just America's most beloved record store employee; he's also a TV stalwart who brings something different to every role. After discussing the success of Empire Records with us in part one of our interview, in part two he's now looking forward to his starring role as Coyote in the new Netflix comedy series Grace & Frankie.

He joins an all-star cast that's led by Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, and as he points out, this is not your average comedy. "It's a love story, but instead of the relationships you think you're going to watch grow, it's the re...

Ethan Embry Celebrates The 20th Anniversary Of 'Empire Records'
Today isn't just Wednesday, it's Rex Manning Day. If you knew that, you're likely one of the many fans of Empire Records, the cult hit feature film about the employees of the most interesting record store that turns 20 this year.

Ethan Embry portrayed Mark, the hyperactive one who probably had too much sugar and listened to too much GWAR, and sat down with us last week to look back on the movie that audiences still quote and love today in the first part of our in-depth interview with this underrated actor.

Given how embraced Empire Records is now, it's easy to forget that the film didn't ...

My Favorite TV Police

5/28/2011 3:00pm EDT
The Chicago Code
There's no group of people that I love seeing on the small screen than the police. Having been there and done that, I have a certain affection for good portrayals of the men and women in law enforcement. Now that we've recently celebrated Police Week, here's my tribute to the TV cops (note: not federal agents or anything else - just cops!) who've left impressions on me over the years.

Sergeant Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and Detective Ben Gannon (Harry Morgan), NBC's Dragnet

My earliest memories of TV cops have to do with one of the most storied franchises in the genre. Thanks to Nick ...

Rewind Recaps - Brotherhood: "Things Have Changed 1:7-8"

4/23/2011 5:00pm EDT
The first season of Brotherhood had a finale that was pretty much perfect. The end of season two couldn't quite meet that high standard, but in a way, that belies the more tumultuous nature of the show's sophomore year.

When last we left Providence, things had gotten kind of ugly. They've only gotten worse since then. The one-time informant Marty Trio is no longer with us thanks to Colin, Freddie Cork is on the run, and everyone else is up in arms. Moe Riley (I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm amazed this guy has a pulse) meets with Michael, who wants to know where Fr...

Rewind Recaps - Brotherhood: 'Only A Pawn...1:7-8'

4/16/2011 6:55pm EDT
The biggest episode of Brotherhood's second season is episode seven. It's election day, and when things don't go smoothly, Tommy is forced to take desperate measures to secure his position. On the other side of the equation, Michael shoots a hitman point-blank in the head. It's not a docile episode by any means.

While everyone's out trying to get Tommy reelected, Michael is asked by the Italian mobster Alphonse Nozzoli to escort an incoming hitman to and from his job. When Michael asks what the intended target did to deserve being murdered, he gets the vaguest of vague answers. Th...

Rewind Recaps - Brotherhood: "One Too Many Mornings 3:4-8"

4/9/2011 5:00pm EDT
Last month, we cracked season one of Brotherhood. Welcome to season two.

The near-perfect conclusion to season one is a tough act to follow. In fact, the entirety of season one is one of the best self-contained stories I've ever seen told on television; if the creative team had wanted to quit while they were ahead I would have understood. Thankfully, they didn't.

It's a few months after season one. Tommy (Jason Clarke) has a lot of anger to deal with over wife Eileen's (Annabeth Gish) infidelities, so he decides to take it out on a wall with a sledgehammer. Though he and Eileen tr...

Rewind Recaps - Brotherhood: 'Matthew 22:10'

4/2/2011 4:53pm EDT
We've come to the end of season one of Brotherhood. This is the episode that's affectionately referred to as the show's "[Robert] Altman film." I call it a season finale that is not a season finale.

What do I mean by that? I've noticed a trend over the years, wherein season premieres and season finales are expected to be huge affairs. Things explode, mysteries are created, cliffhangers are written, et cetera. For some shows, that works. At other times, the need for a huge event comes dangerously close to eclipsing the actual point. Thankfully, Brotherhood's first-season finale is no...

Interview: Blake Masters Revisits 'Brotherhood'

4/2/2011 4:36pm EDT
I've been unable to stop raving about Brotherhood since I started watching the Showtime series earlier this month. And I'm not alone in thinking it an amazing piece of drama. To share my joy and further dissect three brilliant seasons, I went to the source: Blake Masters, the man who created the series and wrote half of it. Here's what Masters, who went on to help develop NBC's Law & Order: Los Angeles, had to say about his Peabody Award-winning first TV series.

Spoiler alert: This interview discusses all three seasons of Brotherhood. If you're planning on watching the show (which ...

What?! Good Actors, Bad Ideas

4/1/2011 4:05pm EDT
Shark Attack
Remember that saying "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"? Even the best actors have their misses. Here's a list of some of my favorite bad performances, miscastings, and poor project choices - all the things that land great actors in bad situations. (But I still love them, regardless.)

John Barrowman, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (2002)

Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is the worst movie that I have ever seen. I really wish that Mystery Science Theater 3000 was still around, because this flick belongs on that list.

While no one expects brilliance from a movie called Shark Attack ...

Rewind Recaps – Brotherhood: “Vivekchaudamani: 51″

3/26/2011 5:00pm EDT
It's one thing to produce one great episode. It's entirely another to have a great arc of episodes. Brotherhood's ninth episode was near-perfect - and the tenth episode continues a sterling conclusion to the first season of the Showtime drama.

Firstly, the episode has another shocking opening. I somewhat choked on my soda when I was greeted with the image of an unfortunate soul who's been thrown to his death off the roof of a building. Pete doesn't like the guy very much. Not that it matters as he's now in a pool of his own blood on the sidewalk below.

Rose and her friend later stum...

Rewind Recaps - Brotherhood: "Ecclesiastes 7:2"

3/19/2011 2:21pm EDT
Grief is one of the hardest things in human existence to deal with. It's also one of the most universal. Brotherhood's ninth episode tackles it head-on, weaving an emotionally moving story without shying away from the more suspect undertones that have always colored the series.

The episode starts with a horrific bang, when Freddie Cork's son Ricky jumps from an overpass, causing a vicious traffic accident that claims several lives, including those of Marty Trio's wife and Carl Hobbs, the mailman with whom Eileen had been cheating on Tommy. As far as huge accident scenes go, I don't...

Last Chance For A Summer Vacation, National Lampoon Style

Summer is almost over and school is right around the corner. If you missed your chance to go on a vacation consider a "stay-cation" at home this weekend. Just rent all four of the original "Vacation" movies and let the Griswald's go on vacation for you.

National Lampoon's Vacation

In light of John Hughes' recent passing this film and the franchise it spawned is even more touching and revealing. The film is based on an article Hughes wrote for National Lampoon Magazine base...

A Look At the Best Cheesy/Sappy Christmas Movies

11/28/2008 12:00pm EST
The Perfect Holiday
Starting in October, a very special period begins for the entertainment industry, and I'm not talking about awards season: Christmas movies bust out of their shiny tinsel packaging and take over the airwaves. While channels like CBS and ABC run classics (Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, A Charlie Brown Christmas) and ABC Family contributes "25 Days of Christmas" with everything from childhood favorites (Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story) to more recent, low budget productions (A Carol Christmas, Christmas Caper), in my household, I prefer to indulge in a select, specific modern few t...

Showtime's 'Brotherhood' Debuts Tonight

Jason Isaacs stars in Brotherhood
“Brotherhood,” set against the disparate worlds of politicians and mob bosses, looks at how gray good and evil can be. Placed in a fictional Irish neighborhood in Providence, Rhode Island, known as "The Hill," the series explores what lengths people go to achieve the elusive American dream.

The show stars Jason Isaacs and Jason Clarke as Michael and Tommy Caffee, two brothers on opposite sides of the law, determined to protect the neighborhood and what is theirs by whatever means necessary.
