Jumping On The Bandwagon

001Every so often here on KM UK we like to report on what Kathryn’s Cold Case co-stars are up to since the cop show ended.  Today it’s time to give a little love to Tracie Thoms.

I’m a little late jumping on this particular… errrr… bandwagon :-)

This year Tracie has been involved in web-based series called Bandwagon, starring Emma Caulfield (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Yvette Nicole Brown (Community).  It’s a comedy mockumentary based around Emma’s actress character looking for a cause to support.  She wants to use the campaigning it to bolster her flagging career.  Tracie plays a friend of Emma.

Originally Bandwagon started back in 2004 as a low-budget movie and involved Emma helping a “developmentally disabled girl get into show business.”  Last year it was released for free on the web as a set of short episodes.  This year a 2nd season has been produced and, again, made available freely via YouTube.  Emma recently announced that this new season 2 has been renamed to season 1 and season 1, as was, would be called Bandwagon: The Movie.  Still with me?

Each episode is around 10 minutes long so you can get one watched if you have a small time gap to fill and fancy a laugh.  And with Bandwagon season 2 season 1 reaching its end with a two-part finale starting next Wednesday you haven’t got long if you want to catch up.

Check out the show via the official website.  Purchase something in the online store and get a treat.  Lots of things are available, from a Twitter ‘shoutout’ to a job as an extra.

Scotty’s Back

001Ooops!  I mean Danny :-)

I’m sure I don’t need to remind the many Danny Pino fans amongst you, but he returns to the small screen this fall season with his new role in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.  Detectives Nick Amaro (Danny) and Amanda Rollins (fellow newcomer Kelli Giddish) join Det. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and the remaining squad.

If the details on IMDb are to be believed (and I haven’t researched this further than that) Danny may not actually be appearing in the first episode.  I guess they can’t have all the new characters just arrive en masse and will introduce them over a few shows.

L&O: SVU starts it’s 13th season tomorrow night (21 Sept) at 10pm on the ABC TV network in America.

Thom Barry Cast In New Movie

Of the all Cold Case cast we like Kathryn the best here of course, but I think we all have a big soft spot for Thom Barry.  And we haven’t mentioned him here nearly enough.  So, to go some way to correct that, here is some news about an upcoming role for the gentle giant.

Thom’s quiet authority and screen presence has seen him play lawmen on many occasions in his career and now he’s going to do it again in a sequel to the horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Thom has been cast as Sheriff Hooper, surely a nod to Tobe Hooper, the director of the original version.

Short-lived Cold Case guest star Tania Raymonde (more famous for her role of Benjamin Linus’ daughter in the TV series Lost) also stars.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is due for release by Lionsgate in October 2012.  You can read more about the announcement on ComingSoon.net.

Thanks to IcyWinter for the heads-up.

Danny Gets SVU Gig – 400th Post!

Last week we found out that Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in Cold Case) was taking part in auditions for a new role on the long-running series Law & Order: SVU.  Danny was up against at least 4 other actors so it was always going to be a difficult ask.

So it is great news that Danny got the job.  He and Kelli Giddish will be playing new detectives when the show returns.  Congratulations to them both.

The Deadline website reports.

As a sidenote this is the 400th post on KM UK.  Yeah us! 😎

Danny Up For SVU Role

We continue our “other Cold Case alumni posts to start the week with” theme with news that Danny Pino is apparently testing for the lead in Law & Order: SVU to replace the Chris Meloni.

Danny’s up against at least 4 other actors for the role so good luck to Danny.

The always on the ball Deadline website report in full HERE.

Don’t worry, we’ll be returning to Kathryn-related posts a little later.
