Cold Case Cast Catch-up – October 2017

The recent changing of the clocks may have left us confused as to what time of day it is but it is definitely the last day of October.  That can only mean one thing: the latest Cold Case Cast Catch-up.  Read on.

Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC) is returning to the works of writer/producer Kurt Sutter.  Before taking the role we know Danny for best he had a five episode run in the gritty drama series The Shield.  Kurt, who wrote many episodes of The Shield and produced even more, went on to create the motorcycle gang-based show Sons Of Anarchy.  It has been three years since SOA, starring Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Katey Sagal (Married With Children), ended but now plans are afoot, afoot I tells ya, for a spin-off series called Mayans MC.  A pilot was shot last year but they are re-shooting it with significant changes to the cast and story.  Danny is said to have taken a lead role in this new version for the FX network which takes place within the same universe but some time after the end of SOA.  James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica) is co-starring.

With that out the way we can get to the usual meat in these monthly articles:  the continuing efforts of Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC) to put dozens of other performers out of work :-)

I think I missed this particular news from very late in September, but it is not as though we’re often short of things to say about Tracie.  Last December’s round-up of CCCC-up round-ups was the last time we mentioned the movie The Basement, a horror film about a serial torturer/killer and kidnapped musician.  Mischa Barton (Notting Hill) stars as the wife of the missing tune-smith.  A trailer was released a month ago and the news broke that the film would receive a world première at the Shriekfest Film Festival in Hollywood in early October.

Speaking of horror films, it seems to be the season, a whole two years ago I posted about a new short film called No Touching starring Zoë Bell (Raze).  They were running a Kickstarter campaign to raise (raze?) money for the project.  Exactly what happened after that I’m not sure but just a few days ago the 10 minute long film was published on YouTube HERE.  Tracie has a small role alongside lead Zoë, who she has worked with in several films.

Lifetime network’s series UnReal gives its fans a bit of hard time.  The third season renewal was swift but the actual production and release were delayed.  In June we covered the news of a ‘early 2018’ debut for the next run with Tracie receiving a recurring role.  Now it has been narrowed down to late February 2018.  On top of that good news for the die hards is evidence that the fourth season is already being filmed.  Tracie posted a photo on social media last night of herself on the set of UnReal for the filming of season 4.  No doubt that will be broadcast sometime in the mid-2020s :-)

A further social media posting by Tracie last week strongly suggests that she will be in an upcoming episode of the CBS drama Wisdom Of The Crowd.  Jeremy Piven (Mr Selfridge) stars in the new show about a tech pioneer who has developed a computer tool to solve murders.  Sounds a bit like Person Of Interest crossed with Minority Report.  More news on Tracie’s guest appearance at a later date.

In July the stage musical Falsettos, which Tracie starred in earlier this year, was recorded for showing in cinemas across the country.  Last Friday the performance was broadcast on the PBS network.
