Does anyone believe that they will bring brother Frank back at some point in Season 7? You know, to show what happens to the brothers' after Mom passes? I truly hope they have them retaining some sort of a relationship. It would be cruelly sad to leave Goren alone with no remaining family.
From what I've surmised from his interviews regarding being on CI, Tony really enjoys playing the part of Frank & acting with Vincent. I think he would be happy for an occasional scene with D'Onofrio, like the coffee shop scene, for example, from Endgame.
I know he was scheduled to direct a new series. Does anyone recall which series it was & whether or not it was picked up for this upcoming season?
I would love to see more of Frank Goren next season...as long as he doesn't become involved in a crime and end up on the receiving end of one of his brother's famous interrogations. I'd like to see Goldwyn direct an ep of CI, too. He directed a mothership episode last year, I think it was.
The pilot he directed for NBC Universal hasn't been aired, as far as I know. It's a crime drama with Famke Janssen.
DonnaJo, I came here to post a link and saw your question from May...I guess they're bringing Frank back. ~~~~
Tony directed a PSA for AARP's Divided We Fail campaign. I'm copying the article here, but if you click the link you can watch the minute-long PSA (with Morgan Freeman, Dakota Fanning, Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon, lots more)...there's also a video of Tony discussing the project. Divided We Fail
EIF and MPTF Join Divided We Fail
Hollywood's leading nonprofit organizations, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), have joined "Divided We Fail" to bring attention to the domestic issues that worry Americans most: health care and financial security. This unprecedented three-year collaboration seeks bipartisan cooperation in finding solutions.
"We are thrilled to have EIF and MPTF join us," said Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP. "This nation's health care and financial security crisis is about to explode: 47 million Americans have no health insurance, and more middle-class people are filing for bankruptcy because of health care-related expenses than for any other reason. We need to build a national conversation around these issues, and the entertainment industry is uniquely suited to help us do that," he said. "We must get everyone -- individuals, companies, and policymakers -- involved, regardless of their political persuasion. Only then will we be able to address these very serious challenges successfully."
A broadcast public service announcement (PSA), featuring a diverse lineup of celebrities who call attention to the need for affordable, quality health care for all Americans, is the initial step in the broad-ranging collaboration. Directed by actor and director Tony Goldwyn -- grandson of legendary producer and EIF Founder Samuel Goldwyn -- with music composed by Philip Glass, the PSA features Ben Affleck, Garth Brooks, Dakota Fanning, Morgan Freeman, Eva Mendes, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Piven and Reese Witherspoon.
"The entertainment industry's leadership felt that we could make a major contribution to Divided We Fail," said MPTF Foundation Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg. "Hollywood can call attention to these problems and help galvanize the public into taking action, which is a key first step in solving them. We're very grateful to Tony Goldwyn and all the performers who got the ball rolling by volunteering their time to appear in the PSA."
EIF and MPTF have long histories of working in the health care arena. EIF, which was founded in 1942 by Samuel Goldwyn, runs national initiatives to increase awareness of critical health care issues and raises millions of dollars for medical research. The 86 year-old MPTF is a major provider of health and human services for entertainment community members.
Tony Goldwyn, who directed the PSA said, "When I heard about the Divided We Fail project, I was really attracted to it. I thought, 'This is exactly what I've been thinking.' And I know it's what a lot of other Americans have been thinking too. People wind up feeling that the two sides are just too far apart; that these problems are so big and complex that we can't fix them. What we're saying is, if we all get together and start talking, we can. Going forward, the entertainment industry will work to get these issues front and center for everyone by doing what we do best, telling the stories of real Americans who are struggling with these problems."
Tony Goldwyn appears in the upcoming remake of Wes Craven's Last House on the Left. He plays the vengeful dad, apparently...I saw a loooooong preview for it on TV, but I'm not sure when the movie will premiere.
I vaguely remember the original, which was very creepy at the time.
I do plan on seeing this film - it looks great. I love well made horror flicks, and from what I have read, the cast & crew have done an amazing job. The extended trailer suggests a wonderful performance by Tony Goldwyn.
Most importantly, the necessary scenes of terrible violence depicted on the two young women by the sociopathic monsters are not in any way sexual. The Director makes a point of mentioning that in the production interviews.
