'Law & Order: SVU': Andre Braugher Previews 'Spiraling Down' (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 7th 2011 12:55PM
Andre Braugher SVU Preview'Law & Order: SVU' has been known to rip from the headlines, but in this week's episode, they're kicking it up a notch. In 'Spiraling Down' (Wed., Dec. 7, 10PM ET on NBC), the detectives catch a legendary footballer, played by 'Everwood' alum Treat Williams, in a teen prostitution sting.

Williams' character hires Andre Braugher's Bayard Ellis, the defense attorney who has been giving the 'SVU' team a run for their money. In this exclusive backstage clip, Braugher talks about the challenges his character faces in defending Williams' character, a man with chronic traumatic encephalopathy from his years on the football field.

"Sometimes he's in and sometimes he's out," Braugher said of the character's mental state. "Sometimes he understands what he's doing and its implications and sometimes he's simply not there. He doesn't remember and he's behaving in odd ways."

Law and Order: SVU Andre BraugherIt's a 'Homicide: Life on the Street' reunion tonight on 'Law & Order: SVU.' Andre Braugher begins his guest arc on the long-running NBC procedural, reuniting with fellow 'Homicide' star Richard Belzer. However, Braugher isn't reprising his 'Homicide' role of Det. Frank Pembleton -- instead, he's playing Bayard Ellis, a new high-profile defense attorney.

In 'True Believers,' a music student, played by 'Medium' star Sofia Vassilieva, is raped in her own apartment. The detectives think they have a pretty solid case ... until Braugher's character becomes the suspect's attorney.

Below, check out the first meeting between Braugher's new character and Belzer's John Munch, plus a behind-the-scenes interview with Vassilieva.

"I would say this is one of the coolest things I've ever done," Gaga told EW about her guest spot. "My dad's probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out."

The episode is set to air in the spring of 2012.

'Men of a Certain Age': Becoming Invisible to Women (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 28th 2010 8:01AM
'Men of a Certain Age':  Becoming Invisible to Women'Men of a Certain Age' (Mon., 10PM ET on TNT) follows the lives of three men who are experiencing, well, a mid-life crisis. Middle age can be a tough time for everyone involved, men and women both. But on the new episode, Owen (Andre Braugher) encounters a uniquely guy-ish problem. Young ladies no longer see him; rather, they see through him.

Yes, Owen has become invisible to the opposite sex. As he enters the guys' local breakfast joint, two women look right past him -- even as he holds the door open for them. But if Owen is expecting sympathy from fellow middle-agers Joe and Terry (Ray Romano and Scott Bakula), then he's come to the wrong place.

"You guys see that?!" Owen says. No, dude; whether your friends saw it is unimportant. The main thing is that the ladies didn't see you. Owen quickly protests that he used to be hot; girls used to check him out. "No," says Terry. "No," says Joe. " ... No," Terry adds, just to make things even clearer.

Aged to (Near) Perfection: 'Men of a Certain Age' Hit Their Prime

by Maureen Ryan, posted Dec 6th 2010 4:40PM
I apologize for posting this review of the second season of 'Men of a Certain Age' (10PM ET Monday, TNT) later than I'd planned. The cancellation of 'Terriers' threw a monkey wrench into the middle of my day.

But perhaps that sad news gives me a chance to tell keenly disappointed 'Terriers' fans that there's another show out there that is quite good at examining the lives of men past the first flush of youth, a show that spends quality time on the ins and outs of real friendship.

Even if you've never seen 'Terriers,' or indeed the first season of 'Men of a Certain Age,' you're likely to find something to enjoy in the second season of 'MOACA,' which expertly mines both comedy and drama from life's awkward transitional passages.

Emmy Picks: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 21st 2010 4:00PM

For the next few days, I'll be listing the Emmy nominees in the major categories and giving you picks and possible dark horses. Feel free to agree, disagree, and make your own picks in the comments.

Yesterday, I made my pick in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama category. Today, I look at their male counterparts in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama category.

Nominees:
Andre Braugher, 'Men of a Certain Age'
Michael Emerson, 'Lost'
Terry O'Quinn, 'Lost'
Aaron Paul, 'Breaking Bad'
Martin Short, 'Damages'
John Slattery, 'Mad Men'



Who will win: As good a year as Aaron Paul had (more on that in a second), I can't see the Academy denying 'Lost' a statue in this category. Both Emerson and O'Quinn did excellent jobs in the series' last season, with its sideways time flashes and seeming parallel universes. And both have won in the past. So this is pretty much a toss-up; I'll give the nod to Emerson because of Dr. Linus' inherent creepiness.

CBS Has No Faith in 'Miami Medical'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2010 4:01PM
Miami MedicalYou've probably seen the commercials for CBS' new medical drama 'Miami Medical.' That's the medical drama that isn't 'Three Rivers' and has The Rollings Stones' "19th Nervous Breakdown" as the promo theme.

It premieres this Friday at 10PM, which pretty much means CBS cares about it as much as viewers are going to care about it, which is probably not very much (for the most part nowadays, Friday nights = death). The Hollywood Reporter thinks the same thing, and even says the show is "dead on arrival."

It stars Jeremy Northam as a mysterious doctor in charge of a medical facility in Miami, North Dakota. Just kidding! It's actually the one in Florida.

'Men of a Certain Age' - 'Back in the S#!t' Recap (Season Finale)

Andre Braugher, Ray Romano & Scott Bakula, 'Men of a Certain Age'
(S01E10)
A lot of things have changed for our favorite trio of men over the past nine episodes, and yet this tenth and final episode of the season managed to push each of them boldly into even bigger moments in their lives. For one, the change is definitely good. For another, it certainly has the potential for greatness. The third is completely up in the air.

Everything that's great about this show was on display in this installment. There is not a member of this cast who isn't knocking their performances out of the park on this show. Just as I was about to write that Scott Bakula was particularly impressive this week, I remembered a couple of scenes between Andre Braugher and Richard Gant (as his father) that were simply awe-inspiring. And then there's Ray Romano in the car with his son Albert, played by Braeden Lemasters. With very little dialogue, that moment was just oozing with emotion.

In a word (and I'll use it to sum up this entire season): amazing!

'Men of a Certain Age' - 'How To Be An All-Star' Recap

There's nothing particularly unique or extraordinary about the lives of Joe and Terry and Owen, the guys of 'Men of a Certain Age.' But the very fact that the situations and circumstances are normal makes how their characters react all the more interesting.

A lot happened in this episode, even though it wasn't big, dramatic stuff like you might expect. No, it was small moments, little things that didn't seem like much, but oh, what a blast in the storytelling. With the last episode of the season airing next week, this was one hell of a lead up to the big finish.

Things are rarely as we think they are in life and on this show. Each guy has an idea about the other, but it's never as simple as they think it is. So this week we learned that Joe's bookie is a sore loser and perhaps a catalyst. We also learned that everything doesn't always go Terry's way, no matter how often he seems to luck into things. And Owen's diabetes is conflicting with his appetite.

Review: Men of a Certain Age - Father's Fraternity

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 26th 2010 4:00AM
Men of a Certain Age(S01E07) One of the many things I love about Men of a Certain Age is the wonderful marriage shown between Owen and Melissa. She is such a wonderful counterpart to all of his insecurities and frustrations, and yet knows when to stand up and let her own voice be heard. I thought the relationship was on wonderful display when Owen came home complaining about being forced to do the commercial, and she was able to quickly get to the root of the matter: his stagefright.

The series continues to add layers to the characters, even giving Owen's father a hint of sympathy this week. Don't get me wrong, the guy's still a complete and total hardass, but he was willing to do the right thing, and seemed genuinely confused by the misunderstandings people were having about the intention of his commercial.

Men of a Certain Age renewed for a second season

Men of a Certain Age
There seems to be just an onslaught of TV news coming out these days, eh? Even if you don't count any of the Leno/Conan/Tonight Show stuff.

TNT has just announced that they have given a green light to a second season of Men of a Certain Age. The exact order is for 10 episodes, though I guess that could be increased at some point. The show has been getting good ratings (averaging 4.5 million viewers a week) and it's a genuinely good show. More serious than you thought it was going to be but also with some humor. Maybe it's because I'm in my mid-40s too but I find the show quite different than anything else on TV right now, and I'm happy to see a second season.

Review: Men of a Certain Age - Go With the Flow

Men of a Certain Age

Who knew Men of a Certain Age had a lighter side? In a rather dramatic -- or actually not so dramatic -- departure from the previous five episodes, "Go With the Flow" showcased a lighter side, and it was much appreciated. As much as I love the series, it's nice to know that these guys aren't just suffering constantly with their various issues and phobias.

Actually, Joe's issues were front and center in this story of his blind date with Sarah Clarke (Nina from 24), but that's a lot of what made it so fun. Actually, the fallout from Joe's issues impacted not only that first date, but also a span of days at work, when an online chat with Dory (Clarke) prior to the date went somehow very wrong for Joe.

Review: Men of a Certain Age - Powerless

As the title of this episode suggests, the guys were all feeling a big powerless and it looked for a time that it was a position overwhelming to each of them. What was reassuring, then, was to realize that with age comes experience and wisdom and a way to figure out how to deal with just these kinds of issues. Each of our men of a certain age were powerless in some way for a time, but not by the end of the hour. That's one for the old guys, if you're keeping score.
