Cold Case Cast Catch-up – May 2021

It’s finally the end of May.  Summer is starting and things are slowly opening up and restrictions relaxing in many places around the world.  In these monthly posts we look at the careers of the other Cold Case cast members.  They’ve been such a large part of our time with Kathryn we should do our small part to honour that.

Let’s kick-off with our headline (see pic above) act: Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC).  Movie studio Universal Pictures has released a trailer for Dear Evan Hansen.  You can watch it on YouTube HERE.  I should warn that at over 3 minutes long, it does show many of the major elements of the plot.  If you want to go into the film knowing little, might be best to give the video a miss.  It was posted by Universal themselves less than 2 weeks ago and, at time of writing, as over 12 million views.  Putting it well inside the top 100 most watched videos on the channel already.  We get to see Mr Pino about 1 minute it.  I say ‘Mr Pino’ as he is looking very distinguished with his greying temples.  Danny (that didn’t last long :-) ) is playing the father of a boy called Connor.  Amy Adams (Enchanted) plays his wife.  The Evan of the title, played by Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect), is another boy at the same school who gets inadvertently caught in a situation.  In many ways it is good thing that happened to him, but it will inevitably come crashing down.  Julianne Moore (Still Alice) is Evan’s mother and Kaitlyn Dever (Last Man Standing) is Connor’s sister.  The film is based on an award winning stage musical.  Currently the film is slated for a late September release across most of the world, with the UK a few weeks later.

Last month’s CCCC-up covering of Tracie Thoms (Kat Millar on CC) mentioned her guesting in a ‘Virtual Hot Pink Evening’ in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Due to ‘current events’ the normal fund raiser was held online but it still raised around $6 million.  Well done to all who took part of contributed.  Tracie was involved as part of the cast of Rent.

Tracie had a good May, albeit relatively quiet by her standards, with a guest appearance in the animated series Family Guy.  The episode was called ‘Family Cat’.  Appropriately enough our Kat played the cat.  The family adopt said cat, Pouncy, and Brian believes the cat is evil.  Come on!  Not exactly a big secret.  All cats are evil really, even the good ones.

There is also news of Tracie starring in a new comedy/drama movie called The Requiem Boogie.  Odd title, and the synopsis doesn’t turn that around.  It is said to be about a former child TV star, best known for being in a sit-com, and various people visiting his house whilst he is dealing with the recent death of his father, also a famous actor.  The film is said to be in post-production, suggesting it has been filmed.  There are some well know faces in the cast alongside Tracie.  Ever Carradine (A Town Called Eureka) and Hill Harper (CSI: NY) will be recognisable to most.  No word on a release date.

In the latest in our series of ‘how long does Hollywood take?’ posts we bring you unfortunate news for our occasional co-star of the CCCC-up: Meredith Stiehm.  Meredith created Cold Case and wrote several episodes.  She also executive produced The Bridge and Homeland.  The last time we mentioned Meredith here was to do with a new show based on a book by Cristina Alger called The Banker’s Wife.  Nearly 3 years go (September 2018) was when news of this new project broke.  Actor Rosamund Pike (Jack Reacher) was ‘attached’.  In July 2019, it became known that Rosamund would no longer be involved but Amazon Studios had ordered 8 episodes for their Prime streaming service.  Now it has been reported that the project has been abandoned.  It had been delayed for obvious reasons, but the requirement to film in multiple countries across Europe to follow the story has made the production impossible the way things are in the world at the moment.

Cold Case S03E23 – Joseph Full HD Screencaps

Cold_Case_S03E23_1080p_099We only got to spend a brief time with Lilly Rush over the course of seven seasons of Cold Case.  In the course of that we didn’t learn a huge amount about the lady herself.  One thing that was clear though, was that she did not have a lot of success in her personal relationships.

‘Joseph’, episode 23 of Cold Case season 3, showed us the very beginning of the latest and it was not a strong start.  Falling for a dead guy in a photo and then pointing a gun at the same man is hardly one you tell the grandkids.

The Joseph in question was thought to be a murder victim from a case just a year before.  Lilly manages to narrowly avoid dating a ghost by finding him alive.  She goes off the books a bit during the investigation, a fact that is noticed by Lieutenant Stillman.  We get the whole disappointed father/disgraced daughter thing.  This continues into the next season.

Bringing to an end our look back at Cold Case season 3 episode 15 years after they were first broadcast, we have a huge 460 (Full HD, 1080p) new screencaps in the Gallery.  It’s a very Lilly-centric episode so there’s lots of scenes to cover.

Cool As Ice – New Blu-ray

cool_as_ice_blu-ray_001From what I can gather, this movie is about a man called Ray who is so blue with cold that he’s turned into ice.  Or something like that.  The reality is not much less preposterous frankly.

Back the early 1990s, rapper Vanilla Ice (a ridiculously weak pseudonym for someone trying to project toughness) became a major celebrity.  It was a simpler time.  His hit song ‘Ice Ice Baby’, continues to haunt the airwaves to this day.  As is the way for the entertainment industry, it couldn’t let a potential cash-cow like this go un-milked so it made a movie especially for it.  Fortunately, such aberrations seem to be rarer these days.  They just get reality TV series on obscure channels instead.

For those unaware of this little slice of Kathryn’s early career, Cool As Ice was her second credited role.  She’s only in a couple of brief scenes as a friend of the female lead (Kristin Minter, ER).  It’s hardly Kathryn’s big break, a couple of blink-and-you’ll-almost-miss-her moments, but every actor has to start somewhere.

The plot is standard boy-meets-girl type stuff.  She’s the good girl.  He’s the bad boy who rolls into town.  Swoon.

Last week a new Blu-ray version of Cool As Ice was released in the US by publisher Kino Lorber.  I believe that is a new 1080p (full HD) transfer so should be better than any previous version.  The disc also includes an audio commentary by two film experts and some trailers.  There doesn’t appear to be any versions of the disc for other parts of the world, so be aware if you were to import it to your part of the globe it may not play on your equipment.  I don’t have details of the region coding.

Cool As Ice on Blu-ray and other formats can be found on the US Amazon site HERE.

Amazingly, this film has gone largely unmentioned here on KM UK, though there have been some decent sized screencaps in the Gallery since this site’s inception.

Cold Case S03E22 – The River Full HD Screencaps

Cold_Case_S03E22_1080p_025Hasn’t the image above just made your day a little bit better?  Whether it was good or bad before, it’s improved now.  One of the (very many) things we love above about Kathryn, even when play Lilly Rush, who has her reasons not to, is that she. Gives.  Good.  Smiles.

At this point in these posts I usually make reference to the story (the shooting of an ER doctor with a gambling problem) in the episode and the fact it first aired 15 years ago today.  Not doing that just yet.  No sir-ee.  Just basking in the smile for a while longer….  a bit more….

So, where was I?  Oh yes, ‘The River’ was about the shooting of ER doctor with a gambling problem and the episode first aired 15 years ago today.  Did I?  Oh well.

Just added further enhancement to your Friday (or whatever day you see this on) we have 2 new high resolution promo photos (see 1 of them below right) to join our brand new 160 (Full HD, 1080p) screencaps in the Gallery.

Cold Case S03E21 – The Hen House Full HD Screencaps

Cold_Case_S03E21_1080p_089The Philly cop squad look into one of their oldest cases in ‘The Hen House’.  This was episode 21 of the third season of Cold Case and was first broadcast today, the 30th of April, 15 years ago (2006).

The case involved the death of a female journalist in 1945, just after the end of World War 2.  Did Lorena Kinney find out something that was worth killing her to keep secret.  Will Lilly and the team finally bring the truth into the open.  You know they will.  We’ve yet to see an episode where the police just shrug and say ‘oh well, looks like this one is too difficult.’

The headline news here is nearly 170 (Full HD, 1080p) brand new screencaps in KM UK the Gallery.
