Cold Case Cast Catch-up – November 2012

john_finn_001_430x180The boss is back.

Another update on the careers of the members of the Cold Cast cast that aren’t Kathryn.

John Finn (Lt. Stillman in Cold Case) was a guest star in the most recently broadcast episode (number 7 of season 2) of the hit US drama series Homeland.  At the moment we can’t comment on the exact nature of John’s role because it won’t be broadcast in the UK until Sunday (18th November 2012).  Cold Case creator Meredith Stiehm wrote this one, which may help explain John’s appearance.  As in many walks of life, in Hollywood it’s who you know.  Let’s hope that that extends to Kathryn sometime soon.  John’s other recent project, Cold Case writer/producer Liz Garcia‘s movie The Lifeguard starring Kristen Bell, is in post-production and due for release next year.  Stretching the scope of the CCCC-up to beyond breaking-point KM UK offers congratulations to Kristen Bell (she was the star of our first April Fool, that’s our excuse and we’re sticking to it :-) ) on her recently announced pregnancy.

Speaking, as we were, of Meredith Stiehm and again stepping outside of the normal CCCC-up bounds, Meredith’s adaptation of the Scandinavian drama series The Bridge continues apace.  Ted Levine (Monk) and Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) have joined Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds) in the cast.  It is currently described on IMDb as a TV movie, so that probably means a feature length pilot has been ordered.  If it goes well then a series could be commissioned.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – September 2012

tracie_thoms_looper_001_430x180It’s September 2012’s round-up of news regarding the other cast-members of Cold Case.

Kicking off with the ever loopy, I mean lovely, Tracie Thoms.  Well, I say “loopy” because her latest film role is due to hit the big screens at the end of this month across most of the world.  The film is called Looper and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception and 3rd Rock From The Sun), Bruce Willis (Die Hard) and Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, which Tracie had small role in).  Beyond what we’ve seen in the photo above, other similar ones and a handful of frames in a trailer, the extent of Tracie’s role as Beatrix is not known.  Looper received it’s world première at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.  Still no news on the release date for the kidnapped-women-forced-to-fight-each-other movie Raze that Tracie made earlier this year.  And no doubt Tracie has been involved in a dozen other events and projects since our last update.  She’s a very busy lady!

In the previous CCCC-up we extended the scope a little to include Veena Sud and Liz Garcia.  Both women had significant behind-the-cameras positions on Cold Case and there was news of major projects for both them.  Well, this time we can mention Liz’s new film The Lifeguard again as, according to IMDb, John Finn has joined the cast as “Big Jason”.  Make of that what you will.  It’s set for release sometime next year and stars Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars fame.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – August 2012 – Update

jeremy_ratchford_perception_001_430x180Another quick round-up of what is going on in the careers of the non-Kathryn members of the Cold Case cast since our last one of these in May.

Let’s start with Jeremy Ratchford (aka Nick Vera in Cold Case) for a change.  In that last update we noted that Mr Ratchford had made a very brief appearance in a promo video for the new TNT show Perception, starring Rachael Leigh Cook (Josie And The Pussycats and She’s All That) and Eric McCormack (Will & Grace).  At the time it was not clear whether Jeremy would be a show regular or a one-off guest star.  It could have gone either way.  The first episode involved FBI Agent Kate Moretti (Rachael) coming back to the city she spent much of her life in and she picked up a case of a certain Detective Hammond’s, Jeremy in a very Vera-like role.  The show could easily have been about Kate and Daniel (Eric) doing the same thing with Hammond on a regular basis but, as far as I am aware, it hasn’t happened again.  Det. Hammond has not reappeared in any episodes since.  Though having established a character like that in the show’s “universe” it could happen.  As an aside, the most recent episode of Perception used the building exterior Cold Case used for the Philadelphia Police Department as a Chicago hospital.  It was once a bank in an episode of Castle.  I presume that is is actually in LA somewhere.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – May 2012

promo_002Another quick round-up of what is going on in the careers of the non-Kathryn members of the Cold Case cast.

Quite a lot has happened since our last update in February.

As covered previously Law & Order: SVU has been renewed for a 14th season so Danny Pino (Scotty Valens on Cold Case) will be returning as Detective Nick Amaro for his second season.  The final episode of Danny’s first season aired last night (23rd May 2012) in America.  I won’t be doing any further screencaps of Danny in L&O:SVU as our friends at Danny Pino Online are doing a great job of covering it.

In the last of these type of updates I mentioned that the multi-talented Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller on Cold Case) was due to star in a big film due out in September.  A trailer has been released for that film, Looper, and it actually has Tracie in it.  It is a very brief of as she, a waitress in a diner, gives Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) an “oh la la”.  Whether Tracie’s role extends much beyond that is not known at this stage.  She is reasonably high up the cast list on IMDb and her character has a name: Beatrix.  Both of which are a step up from Safe House for her.  You can see a copy of the trailer HERE on YouTube.  Tracie appears at the 36 second mark.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – Feb 2012

promo_002A quick round-up of what is going on in the careers of the non-Kathryn members of the Cold Case cast.

First up, Danny.  As we all know he’s on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.  It seems to be going well for him and fellow newcomer Kelli Giddish.  Joining a long established show, effectively replacing a much loved character and actor cannot have been easy.  I’m sure that some die-hard fans will not accept such a change but from what I’ve read the audience figures are strong and many do seem to like the contribution Danny and Kelli have made so far.  There is no news on other work by Danny to report on at this time.

Who’s next?
