Former "Monk" Star Tony Shalhoub Joins Showtime's "Nurse Jackie" As Season Regular


Tony Shalhoub

Tony Shaloub, the infinitely likeable lead of USA Network’s Monk has been tapped for another series regular role – his first recurring role since CBS’s failed 2013 comedy We Are Men. This time Shalhoub joins the cast of Showtime’s Nurse Jackie as Dr. Bernard Prince, a new ER doctor. It sounds like the actor will be playing his trademark good guy, as Variety reports that his character is great with patients, knows how to deal with his boss, Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith), and will become a much needed shoulder to lean on for Jackie.

Tony Shalhoub
Shalhoub's last major TV role was in Monk, ending in 2009.

The series stars Edie Falco, Merritt Wever, Dominic Fumusa, Paul Schulze, Betty Gilpin, Ruby Jerins, Stephen Wallem, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. Clyde Phillips is showrunner and executive producer. Nurse Jackie is a collaborative project between Showtime and Lionsgate. Shalhoub will start work on the show's seventh season, after the show received a two-season pickup and Peter Facinelli made his exit back in March.

Pain & Gain Review


OK

Spirited and very funny, this movie should actually be rather disturbing since it's a true story about torture and murder. But director Michael Bay is so slick with the action and comedy elements that he lulls audiences to sleep, entertaining us with events that really should send chills down our spines. So the movie feels rather tasteless when you begin to think about it.

Wahlberg stars as Daniel, an obsessive bodybuilder in 1990s Miami who works as a personal trainer at a local gym. But he's becoming increasingly annoyed by the fact that his clients are much wealthier than he is. So he convinces his steroid-addicted colleague Adrian (Mackie) to help him kidnap a customer (Shalhoub) and steal his fortune. Realising that they need some help, they enlist born-again ex-con Paul (Johnson) in their plan. But none of them is very smart, and the kidnapping goes badly wrong from the start. Still, they manage to steal quite a lot before a tenacious private detective (Harris) notices something isn't right.

For a story that deals with such intensely serious themes, this is an oddly broad comedy. Bay never even tries to find dark irony here; he just focusses on how stupid these criminals are, convinced that they are as cool as the characters from their favourite movies and eerily unbothered by the fact that they are inflicting pain and even death on people for their own greedy ends. The actors inhabit the roles with a disarming naivete, so we can't help but laugh at their idiotic actions. Wahlberg plays Daniel as a muscle-head so focussed on getting what he wants that he doesn't notice the carnage in his wake; Mackie at least gives Adrian a sense of self-doubt, plus some comical romance (with scene-stealer Wilson); and Johnson has a tricky role as a religious guy with a weakness for drugs and women.

Pain & Gain Trailer


Daniel Lugo is a former criminal whose passion lies in his love for fitness and bodybuilding. When he is hired at the particularly notorious Sun Gym in Florida - a place where the pressure is on to get as big as possible, and where steroids are for sale in the locker rooms - he finds enjoyment there initially before deciding that his low wage wasn't worth it and sets out to organise a criminal method of gaining fortune and fame. He teams up with part-time gym worker Adrian Doorbal and another bodybuilder and former criminal Paul Doyle to set up a plan of extortion and kidnapping against another man, Victor Kershaw, who also has a criminal past. Despite Daniel promising Paul that there would be no-one harmed in their plot to take ownership of all Kershaw's assets, things get out of hand, people end up murdered and they find themselves on the run from the police led by detective Ed Du Bois. 

'Pain & Gain' is an action comedy directed by Michael Bay ('Bad Boys', 'Pearl Harbor', 'Transformers') and written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely ('The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'). It is based on a set of Miami New Times articles written by investigative journalist Pete Collins in 1999 about the real Daniel Lugo and Adrian Doorbal from the Sun Gym Gang who both received death sentences for their crimes. It is due to be released in the UK on May 3rd 2013.

Movie 43 Trailer


If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.

With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

Directed by : Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, Jonathan van Tulleken

Cars 2 Review


OK
There's an astounding level of detail in the animation of this sequel to Pixar's iffy 2006 hit Cars. It's good fun but, with so many characters and plot strands, it also feels cluttered and rather chaotic.

Global daredevil Axelrod (Izzard) has challenged the world's fastest cars to a three-part grand prix, so rally champ McQueen (Wilson) heads to Tokyo with his pal Mater (Larry) to take on rival F1 racer Francesco (Turturro). But Mater obliviously stumbles into a sinister international espionage operation, mistaken for a spy by British agents Finn and Holly (Caine and Mortimer). As the competition continues to the Italian Riviera and London, McQueen frets that he has insulted Mater. But he's actually entangled in a mission to stop a mysterious villain from blowing up the racers.

Sacco and Vanzetti Review


OK
To some extent, popular movements and agitators rely on their martyrs to keep the juices flowing. History is littered with examples of causes that languished in apathy and obscurity until blood was spilled, whether in a public square during a demonstration or inside the stone walls of an execution chamber. So it is with the notorious 1927 execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two most likely innocent men who appeared to have been framed by an establishment fearful of both immigrants of the "wrong" kind and any sort of popular social justice movement. Seemingly good men both, probably guilty of nothing more than political activism, they would serve as standard-bearers for much of what was wrong about America during its period of greatest upheaval, when the promise of the world's most powerful democracy quite often corrupted and left for dead.

Peter Miller's Sacco and Vanzetti could have been the purest bathos, being as it is the moving story of how two Italian immigrants came to America looking for a better life, only to find racial prejudice and railroaded justice. A producer on some of Ken Burns' landmark docu-series, Miller has a firebrand's sense of injustice -- more often muffled in Burns' down-the-middle films -- which he lets show here from the start in no uncertain terms, but doesn't completely allow to wrest the story away from him. That is, the desire to make political points is very much in evidence here (why else to place lefty historian and People's History of the United States author Howard Zinn as one of the primary talking heads?) but it doesn't often overwhelm Miller's need as a documentarian to record the truth in some unvarnished fashion. Not often. There are times, of course, when the indignation and need to place Sacco and Vanzetti in the hallowed hall of left-wing martyrs takes over completely, as when one interviewee states that the story should be referred to as "The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti."
