Has anyone ever heard whether Vincent D'Onofrio suggested Kathryn Erbe for her role on CI? (I haven't heard that.) I have wondered this because he co-starred with her husband Terry Kinney in That Championship Season. I thought maybe he got to know Kinney and Erbe and her work as a result. I have no information either way, I was just wondering if anyone ever read anything to this effect.
Side note...Kinney was fantastic in TCS, he and Erbe sure are a talented couple. It would be fun if he were to guest star on CI.
Oh, If I had known that, I might have tuned in to that horrible CSI:Miami last night, as it was the introduction to the NY cast.
On a related note, USA chose to run Touching Evil against it last night, the maroons. I wonder if the spanking it received was enough to get the show back on Friday's, or if USA will opt for a regular Monday night beating.
I tuned in for my regular Monday night fix of American Chopper last night. It's the only "reality show" I can stand because they are actually doing something I find interesting.
CSI:NEW YORK is actually doing most of its shooting on a set in LA with a few trips to New York for locations. Not that anyone will be able to tell if it's shot like other Jerry Bruckheimer productions (sorry, I really dislike the way his films and shows look and feel).
And TOUCHING EVIL is not doing as well as USA had hoped. The network was hoping for MONK like ratings, and it's not getting them. It's another show where I think there's too much style and not enough substance. The original from England was better, although I'm not as crazy about that one as some of my friends.
Pat (whose caffeine jolt from this morning is wearing off and that may be why I'm a little cranky)
We agree on both Bruckhiemer and Touching Evil, Patcat.
I have yet to see a Bruckhiemer movie I would be willing to fork out the cash for a ticket, and don't even bother renting a large percentage of them. I don't like any of his shows, either. Too much style and not enough substance is an understatement. Occasionally I would find something in CSI: Horatio interesting, but for the most part, the show was too terrible to be real. I love David Caruso, but I hate that show so much that I can't even have it on in the background with the volume off.
Touching Evil is almost as horrible. I still think Mr. Wolf should tear into USA for those promo's that say it's like CI, but better. The creator of that ad obviously either doesn't watch CI, or doesn't get it.
Oh yeah, topic....
Since both Terry Kinney and Gary Sinise are going to be in CSI:NY, I'll give it a shot, but if it sucks even half as bad as CSI:M, I'm not going to torture myself for them. I'm definitely not missing even a second of CI for it, so if it airs on Sunday @ 9, I'll wait for the reruns or miss it all together.
I wonder how it would feel for Kate and Terry to have their shows competing for the same time slot?
I did pay to go see THE ROCK, which I thought was an ok example of a silly action film. It was redeemed by some good work by Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, and David Morse. But it has to be one of the loudest movies ever made.
