Cold Case Cast Catch-up – March 2013

001Following on from Monday’s Cold Case screencap catch-up this month’s CCCC-up is going to be another Tracie Thoms-centric one.  And for that we make no apology.  We thought we’d go with a photo of Thom Barry though to head the piece for a change.

However, before we get to the main course we’ll serve up the gentlemen as an amuse-bouch.

Texas Chainsaw 3D, Thom Barry‘s most recent movie role is due for release on DVD and Blu-ray in May in the US and UK, see your local stockists for details on the dates in your area.  The latest in a long line of ‘Chainsaw‘ movies this one’s excuse involves a woman visiting the town of the original massacre in the 1970s.  She’s gone to claim an inheritance which turns out to be a house with a dark secret.  It’s probably in the basement because that’s where sort of thing is normally kept, or the attic.  Either way the woman and her friends do a lot of running about and laughing…  No, not laughing, screaming.  It’s like laughing only with more blood.  Tania Raymonde (Lost and a recurring role in season 6 of Cold Case) was amongst the happy few flailing about in the dark.  Thom Barry was Sheriff Hooper, almost certainly named after Tobe Hooper the writer and director of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Thom starred in an episode of the TV show Blue Bloods that aired back in mid-January.  Some how we missed that from the previous CCCC-up.  Bit of a C*C*-up.  He was an Assistant District Attorney (ADA) in the New York-set cop drama starring Donnie Wahlberg (Rizzoli & Isles), Bridget Moynahan (Gray Matters) and Tom Selleck (Magnum PI).  The episode was directed by David Barrett (aka One Of The Lucky Ones).

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – February 2013

001After such a busy January focussing on our headline act (that’s Kathryn) we managed to not do a post like this.  So, we’ll get one in early for February 2013.  It is time for another quick round-up of news on the other members of the Cold Case cast.

The banner image clearly wants us to talk about Tracie Thoms (Det. Kat Miller in Cold Case) first, and we wouldn’t want to go against its will now would we? :-)  At the end of January the ever-busy Tracie had a one night stand, that is to say that a feature film she starred in had a single night viewing across the US.  Further explanation is clearly necessary.  A 2009 (released in 2011) documentary film called One Night Stand: Creating A Play In A Day charting the creation of four musicals in just one day had a special nationwide showing in over 400 cinemas on the 30th of January.  Groups of writers, directors, composers and actors created, wrote and rehearsed short musicals.  After just 24 hours they had to perform their pieces.  Staying with Tracie, she recently had a guest starring role in the already cancelled CW network TV series Emily Owens M.D.  Thirteen episodes of the medical drama were produced.  All will be aired and that will be that.  Tracie was in episode 11, Emily And The Teapot.  The lead actress in Emily Owens M.D. is Mamie Gummer.  Daughter of a little known actress called Meryl Streep.  Mamie will next be seen in the movie The Lifeguard, which brings us to…

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.
