Cold Case Cast Catch-up – March 2019

john_finn_001_430x180The year is marching on at quite a pace.  So let’s follow suit and do the March 2019 Cold Case Cast Catch-up.  In these regular posts we look at the on-going careers of the other members of the Cold Case cast.

Who should be start with today…?  How about John Finn (John Stillman in CC). The picture above rather gave things away, didn’t it?  Evidence that despite the breakneck pace of media these days, the gears can grind extremely slowly in Hollywood.  Waaaaaaay back in September of 2016 we first reported that the film Finding Steve McQueen had begun filming.  It was the culmination of over 5 years of work at that point.  Here we are in early 2019 and the film finally had a release a couple of weeks ago in the US of A.  The film is based on the true story of a group of thieves that plot to steal $30m of an alleged secret stash of illegal funds owned by the President Richard Nixon.  Travis Fimmel (Vikings), William Fichtner (Mom), Forest Whitaker (The Last King Of Scotland) co-star.  John plays Mark Felt, an Associate Director of the FBI who gave information anonymously about the Watergate scandal to the reports Woodward and Bernstein under the pseudonym ‘Deep Throat’.  That secret wasn’t revealed for 30 years.  The iconic actor Steve McQueen mention in the title is a reference to one of the thieves idolising him.  The recent season of The Walking Dead, which saw John join the cast, recently came to an end, and it appears that John was only in the pilot of The Enemy Within.

Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC) will not be able to reprise his guest starring role in the Netflix sitcom One Day At A Time.  It has just been announced that show will not be returning three seasons.  Danny has been busy recently promoting the WGN America’s series Gone.  It took a long time to get an airing at home but seems to have been well received so the cast have been out there pressing the flesh.  We get a two-for-one with Gone as Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC) is also features quite prominently across the 12 episode season.

One of the big entertainment news story this past week involves Tracie.  Apple has officially announced its subscription streaming service.  It struck me as not really news as Apple has had the streaming service for years and back in June last year we first mentioned Tracie signing up for a new drama series for Apple.  Many other shows have been know about for a long time too.  The show that Tracie is in was, up until recently, known (without a ?) as Are You Sleeping.  Now it has been renamed to Truth Be Told and is about Octavia Spencer’s (Hidden Figures) reporter investigating an old case through her podcast.  See what Apple have done there?  Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds), Mekhi Phifer (ER) co-star.

To round things off, last week Tracie was kind enough to post a couple of photos from a little Cold Case reunion with Kathryn.  See HERE.  It looks like the two of them were involved in some publicity work for the Start TV network, which is broadcasting Cold Case twice a day at the moment.

Happy Mother’s Day

wallpaper_266_1600x1200_ginaFrom everyone here at KM UK

In recent year’s KM UK has marked Mother’s Day on the 2nd Sunday in May, as that is the date used in many parts of the world.  That includes America, and we are very much about an America mother on this site.

This year we’ve gone native and are going with the date used in the UK (and a few other places) which is the 4th Sunday in Lent, also known as Mothering Sunday.  Just to be extra confusing, this year there are 5 Sundays in March and the clocks have gone forward today.  What day is it?

As we all know being a mother is a difficult job at the best of times, and we’ve had a glimpse at a very different style of parenting recently courtesy of Kathryn’s role in The Dirt.  Being constantly drunk and angry at your child for your own problems is definitely not the way to go.  Let’s compare and contrast:

I know which I prefer.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers around the world.

The Dirt Full HD Screencaps

Is it time to dish the dirt on The Dirt?

Not really.  I’ve not exactly watched the film and I’ve definitely not read the book it is based on, and my knowledge of Mötley Crüe is minimal.  I’ll leave the reviews to those better qualified than me.  Google will provide you with plenty if you want to read some.  I will say that the film has got very mixed reviews.  Did it go too far?  Did it not go far enough?  Is it a faithful recreation of the source material?  Is that biography actually accurate?  Does it matter?

Let us instead focus on the reason we’re here:  Kathryn Morris.

the_dirt_1080p_004As far I can find there was never any news chatter of Kathryn taking a role as the Deana Richards, mother of Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx (real name Frank Carlton Serafino Feranna, Jr.), in this film.  It definitely took us by surprise.  The project has been in the planning since shortly after the book was released in 2001, with various directors and actors attached to it over the years.

the_dirt_1080p_010Kathryn essentially has three distinct scenes in the film.  She appears for the first time by the end of minute 3 as Nikki sets up his early days with an abusive father and an uncaring mother (above left).  Immediately jumping forward a few years, dad is gone and mother is looking for answers at the bottom of a bottle with which ever man she’s recently picked up (right).  Nikki is acting up with loud music, provoking an argument with Deana which results in the police being called.  The issue is resolved without an arrest but Nikki makes his attitude towards his mother very clear (below left).  That’s all before 7 minutes in.

the_dirt_1080p_099Our next sighting of Kathryn is just past the hour mark.  Nikki and the Crüe are rapidly heading towards (no pun intended) rock bottom.  Attempting to calm things down the group’s manager brings Deana to meet Nikki.  It doesn’t go well (top).  And that’s all she wrote.

So, we get Deana in three time periods, meaning we get Kathryn with three different looks and many different emotions.

There are now over 140 Full HD (1080p) screencaps from Kathryn’s scene are now in the KM UK Gallery.

1 Day In Paris (with Kathryn)

in_paris_004

What is going on?!?!

Basically nothing for months and then the past week happened!

Quite often on YouTube I find videos that mention Kathryn.  Either it is a different K. Morris or some automated news item/collection of pictures put together to make a video.  Not what we’re after here.

This morning, this appears.  The YouTube account is brand new, just a few days old with only a handful of videos added so far.  KM UK was the first to view them.  Apart from the name ‘deep into food show’ I have no information about who this man is.  Any suggestions are welcome.  We don’t know when the video was shot either.

So, Kathryn us sharing some food at a street-side café in Paris and someone is filming it.  Not sure what else I can add to that.

Plus, Kathryn, if you are going to visit this side of ‘the pond’ at least pop over to England and say hi.  Next time, right?  Right…?

A small copy of the entire video is in the Gallery and some screencaps have been included to.  You can watch it on YouTube HERE.

What is going to happen tomorrow?

Tracie Selfie Includes Someone Else Special

It’s been a hell of a week for us Kathryn fans.  We’ve not seen the likes of it for a while

We’ve had a red carpet public appearance and news of Kathryn starring in a new film (more on that soon).  Now we’ve got bit of social media posting by Cold Case co-star Tracie Thoms.

Looks like Tracie and Kathryn met at something connected to the Star TV network which is showing Cold Case in the US.  Here is what Tracie had to say about it:

I. MEAN. THIS. COLD. CASE. REUNION. RIGHT. HERE!!!!!! Thank YOU @starttvnetwork for bringing me and the #KathrynMorris together on this rainy LA Day to talk about how we got our starts! You guys can catch #ColdCase on Start TV! Love you Kathryn!! #LilyAndKat #coldcasereunion

Hopefully we’ll find out more about this later.  Attached to the post were the two photos you see above.  Both are now in the KM UK Gallery, of course.

Thank you to Tracie for including us all in this nice moment.
