Jesse Metcalfe Was Hesitant About Taking On 'Dallas' Remake Role

Jesse Metcalfe
Actor Jesse Metcalfe was initially cautious to sign up for a starring role on the new Dallas revamp because he felt the TV industry was already flooded with too many series remakes.

The former Desperate Housewives star had just filmed another new TV show in Texas when he was approached to join the original cast members of the 1980s night time soap opera, Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, for an updated version of the drama.

However, Metcalfe was "critical of the idea" and wasn't convinced a modern-day Dallas would be a hit - until he gave the script a proper read through.


Fall Review: 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit'

Law & Order: SVU
NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit had a buzzworthy offseason, and tonight we got our first look at what one could term the 'new' SVU. Somewhat.

Headlines were made when star Christopher Meloni departed the long-running crime drama (although one could argue that it wasn't too shocking, as his dozen years of service were much longer than some entire shows go). It was later announced that his costar Mariska Hargitay was scaling back her commitment, and B.D. Wong left for a role on the new NBC series Awake.

With the moves, the rumblings began - with the axing of the mothership, failur...

Actor Jesse Metcalfe trained with top American officials and police chiefs to prepare for his role in action-packed TV series Chase.

The John Tucker Must Die star plays a U.S. Marshal in the show, and reveals he flew to California to learn from agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to make sure his portrayal was authentic.

He tells British TV show This Morning, "There's a lot of stunt sequences, combat, chase sequences. We did a lot of training, too, to prepare for the show. We studied with the FBI in Westwood, California, and we also trained with SWAT and U.S. Marhsals in...

Anatomy Of A TV Season: The Hits & Misses

It’s almost May Sweeps, and season finales will be upon us faster than the networks can cancel soaps. Let’s break it down, network by network, of what succeeded – and what flopped – this TV season.


Let’s start with the weakest network. After the ‘Jay Leno Show’ debacle last season, NBC is still scrambling to find original programming that will net decent ratings.

‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’ has proved a disappointment, as evidenced by its massive overhaul and return to floundering ratings. The comedy ‘Outsourced’ is on the bubble, and shows such as ‘Chase’ and ‘Undercovers’ bombed ...

NBC is putting Chase on hiatus, a network rep confirms.

Beginning Wednesday, NBC will replace the freshman drama with a second hour of Minute to Win It.

The move comes a day after the game show posted series-high ratings — 9.5 million viewers and a 3.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo — in Chase's normal 9/8c timeslot. The most recent new episode of Chase drew 4.17 million viewers and a 1.2 rating.

'Chase' 1.13 'Narco (Part 2)' Review

1/27/2011 1:11am EST
Last week, Annie Frost finally had a falliable moment - she was kidnapped. Yet we've seen Chase waste this opportunity before, when she was in the hospital following a bomb explosion in "Havoc."

Annie's kidnapping means that Jimmy and Marco are on a rampage, including confronting Pablo Cordova (Yancey Arias) at his wife's funeral. They move from that to tracking one of her kidnappers to a Houston nightclub and introducing his face to the hood of their SUV. Jimmy has a plan to turn the man over to a rival drug cartel (led by 24's Nestor Serrano) and play them against Cordova and his te...

'Chase' 1.12 'Narco (Part 1)' Review

1/20/2011 1:02am EST
Since we last saw Chase, it's been moved out of direct competition with Hawaii Five-O, but into direct competition with a two-hour American Idol. I'm not sure that's an improvement.

In "Narco," the team faces off with the wife of an arrested drug distributor, who's willing to do anything in order to keep her husband from going to prison, starting with setting a key witness on fire. As one of the main characters says, it's a big leap for her to go from loyal wife to murderer, and it's one that isn't quite convincing; we don't get a clue what makes Isabella Cordova turn so ruthless so ...

'Chase' 1.11 'Betrayal' Review

12/7/2010 2:49am EST
It's been an up and down week for NBC's Chase. On one hand, the show was able to help capture a real-life fugitive in Kentucky. On the other, its episode order was trimmed from twenty-two down to eighteen. It's a shame, because this may be the show's best episode since "Paranoia."

This episode sees Annie and her team pursuing Chris Novack (Hardwick), who has an axe to grind after his best friend and girlfriend - you guessed it from the title - betray him by setting him up so they can run off together. (I had to laugh at my satellite guide's description, which said Chris "takes the city...

Fall TV: What's Surviving, What's Thriving, And What's Dying

Mike & Molly
We've reached a breaking point in the Fall TV season: almost everything that's still around will likely survive the season (key word: almost). It's becoming clearer which new shows are hits (hint: not many), and there are already several casualties. Let's run down the list.

The already renewed

CBS has picked up all five of their new shows: 'Hawaii Five-O,' 'Mike & Molly,' '@#$% My Dad Says,' 'Blue Bloods' and 'The Defenders.' Each show has performed admirably, but none can be called a runaway hit. CBS, though, has the least holes in its schedule and can be proud that viewership is up ...

NBC Fall Season Preview: Spies, CIA Plots And Outsourcing

NBC Fall Preview
NBC is likely getting tired of being referred to as "fourth place NBC." Last year's Jay Leno experiment was clearly a disaster and served as a boon for TBS, which won the Conan sweepstakes. This fall, NBC has fresher programming. With aging favorites and risky new underdogs, does the network have a shot at moving up the ratings ladder, even to third place? Time will tell. Stranger things have happened. Here's a look at what new shows could make the grade and what's in store for old favorites.
