  Scorsese and DeNiro have this kind of relationship. So do Spielberg and Hanks. And Scorsese has it with DiCaprio, too, now that I think of it. Every so often, a director finds his match with an actor who “gets” their material, their vibe, their je ne sais qua. That’s what’s happening between writer/director Henry... Continue Reading →

The Sopranos’ scariest, Richie Aprile, roughs up Mr. Media! PODCAST INTERVIEW

Richie Aprile was crazy. Not gangster or organized crime crazy, but nuts. Way over the top, barely functioning in society, nuts. Of all the characters ever invented on HBO’s long-running mobster drama “The Sopranos," Aprile—played brilliantly by actor David Proval during season two—was the only one that genuinely scared me with his anger and quick-to-violence...

Aimee Garcia gets used to TV Trauma! PODCAST INTERVIEW

  Whoever cast the new NBC show “Trauma”—airing Monday nights at 9 p.m.—must have done some market research when it came to Aimee Garcia, at least based on what I learned about her within my own household. Besides being a beautiful, talented young actress, she is immediately recognizable among several constituencies. My 13-year-old son knows... Continue Reading →

Former journalist Dario Scardapane on NBC’s Trauma! PODCAST INTERVIEW

Today's Guest: Dario Scardapane, showrunner, "Trauma"   From what I’ve read, the opening 10 minutes of the NBC drama “Trauma”—and say that five times fast—is the greatest introduction to a TV show ever. It cures cancer, tames global warming and reveals the secrets behind “Lost.” Okay, maybe it doesn’t do the last thing, but still!... Continue Reading →
