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.
