Cold Case Cast Catch-up – May 2016

Boom!  And there goes May!  But just before it ends let us take in some news about Kathryn’s old cast mates in KM UK’s monthly Cold Case Cast Catch-up.

As you can see from the image above we’re leading off with our leading man Danny Pino (Scotty Valens on CC).  His new CBS comedy-drama BrainDead starts in just two weeks time.  Danny plays US Senator Luke Healy.  Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) is his sister Laurel.  She has returned to Washington after time away as a documentary maker to help her brother run his office.  They are the children of a political dynasty.  As well as the usual problems of government, which normally revolve around their unwillingness to stop fulfilling their own wishes and actually working for the good of the people that put them there, there is a mysterious bug eating the brains of people on Capitol Hill, turning them into zombies.  Tony Shaloub (Monk), Aaron Tveit (Graceland), Johnny Ray Gill (Rectify), and Nikki M James (The Good Wife) co-star.  The show was created by the married couple behind The Good Wife, Michelle and Robert King.

Back in August 2015 we covered John Finn (John Stillman in CC) and the on-going saga of the CBS drama series Doubt.  Without doubt the doubt continued.  A year ago the show was not picked up to series but the project was re-worked and a new pilot shot.  In the past few weeks it was announced the show had had a series order placed.  They are making it.  However, and this is where the doubt creeps back in, it is not in the normal autumn/fall line-up and will be kept for release later in the 2016-17 season.  If one of the new shows gets cancelled early then it could be called up to fill in.  What is also in doubt is John’s presence.  He was involved in the original pilot but we don’t know if his character survived the re-write or whether John was re-cast in the new version.

Jeremy Ratchford (Nick Vera on CC) has found himself cast alongside Oscar winner Octavia Spencer (The Help) and Oscar nominee John Hawkes (who had some memorable scenes with Helen Hunt in The Sessions) in a new thriller called Small Town Crime.  Jeremy is listed with the character name ‘Orthopedic’, which is a little odd.  There is quite an acting ensemble with Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Michael Vartan (Hawthorne), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), amongst others.  The story is said to involve Hawkes as an alcholic cop who sets out to find the killer of a young woman whose body he finds.  Small Time Crime is by writing/directing partnership Eshom & Ian Nelms (Lost On Purpose) and is currently filming with a likely release in 2017.

It is easy to get a little lost (on purpose or otherwise) when it comes to Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller on CC) and her on-going projects as there are so many of them, and that is not including her one-off singing engagements and the like.  An item in the list that stood out as one I had not posted about before, but had already got as far as post-production, is a film called The Drowning.  Further investigation shows that it is a re-naming of a film I last mentioned one year ago.  Starring Julia Stiles (Blue) and Josh Charles (The Good Wife, not for the first time in this article) it is a thriller that was previously called Border Crossing after the Pat Barker novel it is based on.  Tracie’s been upgraded from ‘i dunno’ to Angela.  To expand on the previous post it involves the issues surrounding a child killer (a killer who is a child) and what happens when they are released from prison.

As mentioned back in February The Real MVP: The Wanda Durant Story, a Lifetime network TV movie about basketball star Kevin Durant’s mother Wanda, aired for the first time in early May.  Appropriately it was the Mother’s Day weekend, in the US anyway.  It’s in held in March in the UK.  Tracie starred as Demetria, which sounds more like a skin cream to me.  Another film to undergo a name change is Raven’s Watch, which will now be called The Watcher for its October festival release.  March’s CCCC-up covers the details of Tracie’s role as we know it.

Later dudes.

Monte Carlo TV Festival 2007 Photo Update

tv_festival_013In honour of today’s Formula 1 race in Monte Carlo, Monaco today I have an appropriately placed set of photos.

Kathryn made a lot of public appearances in 2007 to publicise the Resurrecting The Champ movie and Cold Case, as it was in full swing at that time.

In mid-June (so it is nearly date appropriate too) of that year Kathryn was a guest of the Television Festival in the principality of Monaco.  She attended various events and gave several interviews.

We’ve been here before but now I have added 9 new photos in the Gallery from this photoshoot and interview.

Update On Alice Sweet Alice

concept_art_001Over two years since our last post on Alice Sweet Alice, and over three since any significant news, we have an update.

What exactly it means for Kathryn fans is not entirely clear but it does give us a small insight in to the world of film making.

To recap: Alice Sweet Alice was a horror movie from 1976 by the writer/director Alfred Sole.  More recently Alfred has been a production designer working on films and TV shows, including contributing to a number of seasons of Castle, which just finished its final run.  Back in 2013 Dante Tomaselli the horror writer/director, and cousin of Alfred, announced his plans to remake Alice Sweet Alice.  Kathryn was said to be involved playing the mother of the title character and would be taking a role behind the camera with her own production company.

As I said, a long time has passed with no news.

Dante has now given an interview with the iHorror website giving details on what has been happening in the intervening period.  Various attempts to secure funding fell through, including by Kathryn herself.  As Dante says:

“First, Alfred’s ex-agent was confident she had funding but, ultimately, she didn’t. Then Kathryn Morris was going to serve as Executive Producer, but she couldn’t raise the funds. She did try. That was it.”

Apparently Dante, with his co-writer Michael Gingold, has re-worked the project into a scarier film with a new script and production is being revived.  Kathryn’s further involvement is not mentioned, nor is it dismissed.  However, it is noticeable that as of earlier this month Kathryn is no longer listed on the film’s IMDb page.

Terminator Salvation Première Photo + Video Update

terminator_salvation_47Told you “we’d be back!”  😎

The film studios made many returns to the Terminator franchise, and will no doubt be doing so again all to soon, so I think I can get away with making a quick second visit in as many weeks to the US première of Terminator Salvation.  The last time was here.

It is well worth doing so I’m sure you’ll agree.

If you don’t fall in love even just a little bit with Kathryn after looking at the picture on the right then you must be some sort of unfeeling robot.

Even people with those artificial hearts that mean you have no heartbeat must feel their pulse quicken at such a sight.

What could be better than seeing someone you like so much look so full of joy, whilst also looking so beautiful?  Nothing I tell you, nothing!

This time we focus on new close-ups and some videos.  Yes, I’ve added some short videos which include Kathryn on the red carpet at this event.  Don’t forget the 4 new photos too.

They are all in Gallery now.

Like Hollywood, I can’t promise not to come back to this one in the future, or is it the past? :-)

KM UK Is 7!

CC_100th_430x200Happy Birthday to KM UK!

When you see the picture above in a KM UK post it can mean only one thing (or maybe two):  it’s the site’s birthday.

Not so long ago (7 years today in fact) in a galaxy not so far away (because it was this one)…  KM UK was born.

The 18th of May 2009 was that day and today marks the site’s 7th birthday.

In the time since then we’ve racked up over 1200 posts, thousands of comments, and over a million hits per year.  Our photo and video gallery continues to grow with nearly 68,000 images and 700 registered users.  The site’s Twitter account crossed 600 followers earlier this year as well.

Thank you to everyone that visits and gets involved.
