Cold Case Cast Catch-up – April 2021

tracie_thoms_001_430x180As the ‘you know what’ issue lockdowns start to ease in some parts of the world TV productions could start to pickup the pace.  However, in the normal annual process the production process tends to be slowing down around this time of year.  This was always going to make this month’s Cold Case Cast Catch-up a bit tricky to fill as we look at the on-going careers of the Kathryn’s co-stars.  We’ll do what we can to pad this out though.

We always like to give the guys a shot at getting the top billing in these monthly posts because, frankly, they don’t stand much a chance against Tracie Thoms (Kat Millar on CC).  Positive discrimination only gets you so far.  We just have to bow down the one-woman entertainment industry that is Tracie.  She is not really able to do her regular stage performance at the moment but she is putting in the hours on the TV sets.  In the past few weeks Tracie has been back on the small screen in two episodes of the multi-emergency service Fox drama series 9-1-1.  In this program Tracie is the partner of one of the main characters, which could be a small role but has netted her 25 appearances in 3 years.  9-1-1 has been successful enough to have branched out with spin-offs.

Speaking of which, Tracie was again in an episode of the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Station 19, which is is drama set around fire station.  This looks like a very timely episode as it revolves around the death of an unarmed black man.  Tracie’s Dr Diane Lewis returns for a third time as a counsellor for the team.

Sticking with Tracie she is also doing her bit to support a good cause.  On May the 20th, she will be one of the many special guest stars at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s ‘Virtual Hot Pink Evening’.  Liz Hurley is set to host dozens of famous names including Sir Elton John, Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser, M.D.), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Gayle King (CBS News), Adam Pascal (Rent), and Paul Shaffer (Late Show with David Letterman).  You can read more about the event HERE.

Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC) continues to appear in the FX network drama Mayans M.C. The third season started in mid-March and the show is set to continue for a couple more weeks.

Stretching our reach a little further than normal, as we do occasionally, we follow up on a story from our January 2021 CCCC-up.  Back then it was announced that the short-lived, short-form, mobile video platform Quibi’s content has been purchased by streaming platform Roku.  Recently the news was released that the various shows would be branded Roku Originals.  On the face of it it sounds like a slightly cheeky name, considering they’d bought it from someone else.  However, apparently their are quite a few shows that were never released by Quibi.  We mention this because Cold Case writer and producer Veena Sud created a show for Quibi.  It did make it out during the life of the platform, but will be available free on Roku this year.

Cold Case S03E16 – Death Penalty: Final Appeal Full HD Screencaps

Cold_Case_S03E20_1080p_001Lilly’s hot.  Damn hot!  And the Philly PD air-conditioning system’s inability to copy with the Pennsylvania heat is making her too warm as well :-p

Breaking with recent tradition, this series of new screencap posts from episodes first aired 15 years ago is going to include new screencaps.  They’re hot too.  Freshly made, especially for you.

This week’s case involves an old one of Jeffries, 10 years previous.  A man is on death-row and will soon be executed for a murder he maintains he didn’t commit.  He places one last call to asking for help.  The squad have a literal deadline to meet on this one.

With much appeal we bring you a final set of 188 (Full HD, 1080p) new screencaps from this episode.  They are now available in the Gallery.

Cold Case S03E19 – Beautiful Little Fool Photos Update

still_002Beautiful Little Fool?  Beautiful Little Fool!?!  How dare you!  Beautiful? Very much so.  Little?  She is quite petite.  But, sir, I draw the line at fool!  :-)

Early in Cold Case history it was hinted that Lilly had her issues with alcohol.  Rush was, perhaps, a lush.  She’d managed to stay away from it for a while before we got to know her.  Few things could make her partake in the booze.  Her mother is one of those exceptions.  The irony, if that’s right, is that Ellen Rush has had even worse issues with drinking and has not dealt with them as well as her daughter.  The much loved Meredith Baxter (Family Ties) made her first of four Cold Case appearances as Lilly’s mother in this one.  Meredith herself had alcoholism earlier in life.

Alongside the Rush family dramas, the episode’s case involves one of its oldest.  The 1929 death of a woman on Xmas Day of that year.  ‘Beautiful Little Fool’ aired for the 1st time 15 years ago today.

Like last week, there are no new screencaps from this episode, as there are already a full suite of them in the Gallery.  Instead we have two new, large, and high quality promo photos to bring to you.  As you can see, they both involve the awkward meeting of Lilly and her impending new step-father.


Cold Case S03E18 – Willkommen Photos Update

s03e18_still_001Willkommen to a new post on KM UK.  I what is increasingly inaccurately called ‘a slightly different one this week’ we have a new set of high quality, large sized promo photos, rather than new HD screencaps.  Today marks the 15th birthday of this 18th episode of Cold Case season 3 first aired in 2006.

Will is absent from these images so I guess he is not so… kommen.  I’ll get my coat.

Actors often talk of dying on stage and the superstitions around the theatre (not saying the name of the ‘Scottish play’ etc.).  This episode is not going to help with either anxiety, when the squad open a then 4-year old case about the death of an amateur actor.

As you can see around this article there are 4 new photos from this episode now in the Gallery.  Can I just add one last thing: Perfectly Marvelous.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – March 2021

I know, I know.  But, let’s face it, February is such a short month that it hardly even counts as a month.  Nothing happens in February.  You missed nothing :-)

Welcome to the second (cough) Cold Case Catch-up post of 2021.  This is obviously about Kathryn and her career, but Cold Case was (almost) as much about the other characters as it was about Lilly Rush.  In this (normally) monthly posts we look at the on-going careers of her fellow actors of the show.

The continuing global situation is still being felt across the entertainment industry.  Even TV shows that are being made are having to reduce episode counts due to more complicated production schedules.  Hopefully the corner is being turned so that across the summer things can get closer to normal ahead of the autumn/fall season.

Let’s start with our banner image star for March: Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC).  A couple of weeks ago the FX network drama Mayans M.C. return to US televisions after a somewhat forced absence.  This is the third season of the spin-off from the often acclaimed Sons Of AnarchyMayans M.C. is not a show I watch, but from something I read somewhere a while ago, I was under the impression that Danny would not be returning, based on his character’s actions, not his.  How wrong I was.  The fourth episode aired last night (30th March) and the remain 6 will continue until mid-May.  In the UK, previous seasons of Mayans M.C. have been shown by the BBC, often in pairs late on Sunday nights.  I presume this will be repeated for the new one at some point in the future.  Both the first two seasons are available on the BBC iPlayer.

Regulars to these posts will know that we are never far from Tracie Thoms (Kat Millar on CC) news.  She pretty much single-handedly keeps this segment going.  If she ever takes a break from showbiz there’ll be nothing to watch.  In early March, Ms. Thoms, brought her character of Karen Wilson back to the cross-emergency service drama series 9-1-1, over on the Fox network.  Karen is the partner of one of the main characters, played by Aisha Hinds (Under The Dome), so is usually peripheral to the main stories lines but she regularly crops up.

Clearly Tracie is very much into saying yes at every opportunity that arises.  She did so for the Netflix movie Yes Day, starring Jennifer Garner (Alias), which was release a few weeks ago.  Jennifer took advantage of being stuck at home to be able to Zoom/Skype/Teams call into nearly every chat show in the world to promote this family friendly fare.  Apparently some people do this Yes Day thing, where they (within legal bounds) only say yes to their kids for the day.  Madness.  Tracie has a small role as ‘Billie’, a ‘concert co-ordinator’.

Not sure if I missed this previously but I see that Tracie is listed as being in a new film called Bolivar. It is described as currently being in post-production, meaning it has been filmed and is now being edited etc. prior to a release.  As we’ve seen, this can often be a lengthy period, with many films never seeing the light of day.  Nell Teare, who has done a lot of bit-part acting and a lot of writing/directing/producing work as well, stars as a woman dealing with the loss of her mother.  One to keep an eye on.
