Q&A: 'Justified's' Erica Tazel - A Star On And Off-Screen

February 7th, 2012 4:50pm EST
Justified
Timothy Olyphant might be the star of FX's Justified, but he's far from the only one. Actress Erica Tazel has made the most out of her first series regular role as the no-nonsense Rachel Brooks.

From the pilot episode, Rachel has proven an effective balance to Raylan's more outside-the-lines approach, and we've seen their relationship grow along with her character. One of the highlights of season two came in "For Blood or Money" where we got to learn a lot more about Rachel, who has become one of Justified's most pleasant surprises, and that's because it's obvious how much thought a...

Fall Review: 'Unforgettable'

September 21st, 2011 2:08am EDT
Unforgettable
Watching CBS' new series Unforgettable gave me a hint of deja vu.

The procedural reunites former Without A Trace star Poppy Montgomery with that show's network and its executive producer, Ed Redlich. Montgomery, who's become a redhead but still looks better than most of us, stars as former Syracuse cop Carrie Wells. Carrie has the gift (or the curse) of remembering almost everything - except for the murder of her sister.

It sounds familiar, doesn't it? A main character with a tragic past, not to mention that she used to be sleeping with her new partner - former Nip/Tuck lead Dylan Walsh...

Marilu Henner
Actress Marilu Henner has been asked to consult on a new TV drama about the rare memory condition she suffers from.

Without A Trace star Poppy Montgomery will play a crime fighter with hyperthymesia - a condition that allows her to remember every single moment in her life.

And Taxi star Henner, who is a hyperthymesia sufferer in real life, has been asked for her input so producers can make sure the series, Unforgettable, is as authentic as possible, according to TV Guide magazine.

Anthony LaPaglia Needs Another Hip Replacement

April 9th, 2010 2:46pm EDT
Anthony LaPaglia
Without A Trace star Anthony LaPaglia will undergo a second hip replacement operation later this year - six years after his last surgery.

The actor, 51, is an enthusiastic soccer player and regularly enjoys a kick about with his pals near his home in Santa Monica, California. LaPaglia, who used to play professionally, admits his love for the energetic sport has wreaked havoc on his hips, and he has to undergo more surgery once he completes his stint on the New York stage in Broadway opera Lend Me a Tenor.

He says, "(The other hip) is gone. I'm gonna get it done after the play."

New Doctor Show 'Miami Medical' Premieres Friday On CBS

April 2nd, 2010 10:15am EDT
Miami Medical
There’s another new medical drama coming to TV. What’s going to set Miami Medical apart from all the others? For one thing, it’s a Jerry Bruckheimer production, so it can be as intense and in your face as the stalwart CSI and Without a Trace franchises.

“This is a different way of looking at a medical show,” Bruckheimer said. “It's got a lot more humor, it's got the gallows humor.”

And Bruckheimer wouldn’t make a show about just any doctors. He likes to deal with the best of the best, in this case the Alpha Team of surgeons at a trauma hospital. “They're the Rolling Stones of doctors,” Br...

TV's Most Kick-Ass Female Detectives

February 16th, 2009 9:00am EST
Cagney and Lacey
Once upon a television season, fans of police dramas and crime procedurals didn't think detectives could ever get more hard-boiled than Vic Mackey of "The Shield" or Andy Sipowicz of "NYPD Blue." Thankfully, we were wrong. Not only are there an increasing number of take-no-prisoners police detectives and home-sleuths on the case, but many of them are wearing skirts. From Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Roselyn Sanchez in "Without A Trace" to Kathryn Morris in "Cold Case," "Law and Order's" S. Epatha Merkerson and the women of the CSI franchise, powerful, well-written female pro...

Greg Laswell's 'Three Flights From Alto Nido' To Be Released July 8

Greg Laswell
Renaissance Man Greg Laswell finds himself released from heartache with Three Flights From Alto Nido, his sophomore full-length album on Vanguard Records, to be released July 8th. Three Flights From Alto Nido is the enigmatically, yet aptly titled third volume of his trilogy of heartbreak and redemption.

In 2006, Laswell's Through Toledo was an intimate account of a devastating experience in his life. How The Day Sounds, a six song EP released earlier this year, served as a bridge toward self-realization while vividly capturing the sense of healing and moving on. Three Flights From...

CBS Adds New Night Of Comedy, Not Much Else For 2008-09 Season

May 15th, 2008 10:59am EDT
New Adventures of Old Christine
Every year, the upfront presentations have a different theme. Ok, so that's not always the case, but it would be pretty cool if it was, right? This year, however, there definitely seems to be a theme emerging. NBC's presentation in April, which seemed to be heralding in an era of change, proved to be a red herring. As this week has shown us, the theme this year is not change. It is stability.

For CBS, leader in overall viewers for the past several seasons (although it is being challenged by Fox in that category this year), sticking with the status quo makes sense. Due to that fac...

A definite "do" was the one sported by "Without a Trace" star Roselyn Sanchez. Wearing a one shoulder, knee-length dress in a slightly silvery color with golden prints, Roselyn appeared princess perfect. With her jet black hair flowing effortlessly on her shoulders, the only thing missing was a deserving tiara. Que princesa!

Grading The TV Networks: It's Report Card Time

February 6th, 2008 2:31pm EST

The last two television seasons have had it all. We've seen everything from the birth of a broadcast network (the CW) to the most debilitating industry work stoppage in 20 years. Now it's time to take a closer look at each of the five major broadcast networks and see what they are doing right, what needs improvement, and where they stand.

Like any true report card, we won't be judging the networks on any one category alone. Although overall ratings are a factor, they are not the only factor. Also, we will be looking at the time period from Fall of 2006 (when the CW debuted) to pres...

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 4: No Longer a Code Blue

No more new Grey's Anatomy episodes are set to air, at least not until the strike is resolved. Let's take a look back at the shortened fourth season of everyone's favorite show about a hospital where you would never want to be a patient.

One cast member left, and new ones took his place. We all learned to how much blood can spray on an intern. Most importantly, we were able to enjoy a show that in the previous season was a melodramatic letdown nearly each and every week.
