There’s many reasons behind the continuing success of the Dick Wolf’s Chicago series, and one of the biggest ingredients comes from the collaborative spirit of the ensemble and crew. Chicago Justice actors Monica Barbaro and Philip Winchester talked about their work with Wolf and showrunner Michael S. Chernuchin, and the video is found after the jump!
For such a groundbreaking story, Jeff Nichols’ Loving, now available on DVD and Blu-ray, is notable for its silence. Although the quiet solemnity of a sparse script served Nichols well in the case of his other 2016 critical darling, Midnight Special, the historic Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court decision invalidating laws that prohibited interracial marriage may have required a bit more dramatic build-up. Fortunately, Loving’s two lead actors – Ruth Negga, nominated for an Academy Award for this role, and the chameleon-like Joel Edgerton – elevate the movie through their characters by tenderly tapping into the steady strength that defines their humanity.
Since her successful run on The Voice (Season 9), Siahna has continued to hone her singer-songwriter skills.

Join me on my noble quest for cinematic redemption!

Justin Hartley and the ensemble of This Is Us have received their share of acclaim. But aside for the critical praise, loyal fan support, and series’ overall success (it’s been renewed for a second season), the program has also made an impact on Hartley’s personal life. Check out the video below to hear Hartley talk about how This Is Us has helped him “slow down” and appreciate life on a deeper level.
If you check out Alan Tudyk’s resume, his body of work runs the gamut. Whether it’s his collaborations with Joss Whedon (Firefly, Dollhouse) or spearheading his own series (Con Man), Tudyk is a highly diverse actor. During the interviews for his new show Powerless, I asked him if he actually found comedy to be a harder genre to tackle than drama.
I haven’t played the game on Steam, but considering the memorable moniker should be emblazoned on a shirt and the simple plotline is actually intriguing, I’m excited to catch Human: Fall Flat’s Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release this spring. Details on the game after the jump!
