Debra Winger, star of 'An Officer and a Gentleman,' is reportedly close to signing a deal to appear as a regular on HBO's third season of 'In Treatment.' The role Winger may play has been described as a former star who is battling insecurity and fear about her career. Winger's last role as a series regular was on the Lynda Carter-driven 'Wonder Woman.' [Deadline Hollywood]
More casting news after the jump.
(S03E13) 'Burn Notice' is generally more serious dealing with spy business than a show like 'Chuck', which is more playful. There's more blood on 'Burn Notice,' and the killing is not done to popular music. Both shows are fun, but for a tougher brand of espionage, 'Burn Notice' is the way to go.
This was one of the better 'Burn Notice' episodes because it put Michael somewhere he hasn't been in a while -- a very vulnerable position. And Larry was back. You remember Larry, played with menacing lunacy by Tim Matheson? More on Larry, the Colombian cartel, Jack Fleetwood and -- oh yeah -- Michael's brother, too, after the jump.
Star Bradley Whitford and newly-hired director Tim Matheson (pictured, right) and co-star Diana-Maria Riva have all worked on Sorkin's 'The West Wing,' while Whitford and Riva went on to work on Sorkin's 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.'
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Matheson has been hired to direct 'Jack and Dan,' an hour-long series about a pair of mismatched Los Angeles cops. Whitford will play Dan, a lecherous, alcoholic burnout who remains on the force because of a long-ago act of heroism. His partner is young detective Jack (Colin Hanks), whose insistence on doing things by the book has all but stalled his career.
(S02E08) I like it when old friends of the main character show up for a visit. Generally, because they inevitably give out some personal information. For example, it seems that Michael has had a fondness for yogurt for some time now. The other tidbit was that Michael didn't have such high moral fiber back when he was working for the government. I'm willing to bet it was the reconnection to his family and friends that brought him back from the dark side.
The other thing that visits from old friends bring us is cool guest stars. Tim Matheson doesn't work near enough for my tastes and to see him turn up as a douchebag ex-coworker of Michael's was fun.
