Neal McDonough Takes 'Justified' To Another Level

March 13th, 2012 2:00pm EDT
Neal McDonough
It was a tall order to follow up Margo Martindale's award-winning villainy on Justified. Yet veteran actor Neal McDonough has done just that and more.

He is the man behind Detroit mobster Robert Quarles, the latest adversary to cross paths with the infamous Raylan Givens, as played perfectly by Timothy Olyphant. When playing against an actor of Olyphant's caliber, one must be at a certain higher level already. But what makes McDonough a fantastic choice, the choice that I can't believe it took this long to think of, is that he doesn't just hold his own; watching him, one gets the sense tha...

Michael Cudlitz Discusses Tonight's 'Southland' Season Finale

Michael Cudlitz Discusses Tonight's 'Southland' Season Finale
When Michael Cudlitz and I last spoke, back in April, I used some, well, (ahem) colorful language during an interview junket --

a junket that everyone but me thought was on live local television -- to describe his character on Southland, Officer John Cooper. We finally get a chance to go one-on-one and clear the air over that moment and, more importantly, discuss tonight's season finale of Southland (airing at 10 pm ET on NBC) along with his experience on Band of Brothers and working with John Cusack in Grosse Point Blank.

Michael Cudlitz: You're the guy who said, "You're a dick."

Taxi Confession

Jimmy Fallon
Truth, Justice And Gordon Shumway: (weekly column) - It's probably not the easiest thing to be Jimmy Fallon these days; the amount of backlash he endures is typically reserved for those the Iraqi media throw their shoes at. The web episodes leading up to the March premiere of his new show have been inconsistent, at best. To make matters worse, Jay Leno has just agreed to stay at NBC, hosting a new show at 10:00 PM on weeknights; effectively making Fallon the third hour of late night comedy (he will have to get behind Conan O'Brien for his spot under the bus where NBC threw them). To say the...

The staff here at Starpulse.com got together and came up with a list of some of our favorite war movies. Here they are in no particular order:

Band of Brothers (2001) - Yes, we know it's technically a mini-series, but it's so good we had to include it. The ...

Is HBO Losing Its Edge?

April 14th, 2008 10:57am EDT
The Sopranos
Remember the slogan, "It's not TV, It's HBO?" Well, up until a couple months ago this marketing ploy actually rang true. HBO has long been the trendsetter of original series that break all boundaries and push audiences' perception of what television is and should be.

Unfortunately, thanks to the culminations of the network's most beloved quartet of series - Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, and most recently The Wire - the Crown Royal of premium cable programming is in threat of losing its edge over the best of the rest.

There was a time when HBO stood for first-run...

20 Years Later: New Kids On The Block

March 10th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
New Kids On The Block
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since I wore my New Kids On The Block t-shirt holding a pink and black pocket rocker, which was playing "Hanging Tough" of course, in one hand and a sign saying "I hart you Jordan! Merry me!" in the other. Yes, I spelled it that way I was five years old. Even back then I was able to "get on the floor and do the new kids dance" at the outdoor venue in Tinley Park for my very first concert to see the best boyband EVER!

For those who don't remember or weren't born yet, New Kids on the Block was one of the most popular boybands to hit the music ...

About four months later Hayman called and offered him an audition, which he won, for the ...
