Who Should Replace Steve Carell on 'The Office'?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 28th 2011 8:00AM
Steve Carell, 'The Office'Steve Carell played bumbling, fumbling boss Michael Scott on 'The Office' for seven seasons, but now that Michael has left Dunder Mifflin, who'll take over?

Last season we met Deangelo Vickers, played by Will Ferrell, but he was hardly worthy of inheriting the Scranton branch throne. We also saw Creed get bumped up to acting manager based on seniority, but again, there's no way that's the long-term solution.

In the Season 7 finale, possible replacements were interviewed, including James Spader, Jim Carrey, Will Arnett, Ray Romano and our favorite pick of them all, British comedian Catherine Tate. But will any of them really take the job?

We rounded up a few other smart and funny people for the gig, people we'd love to see eventually win a Dundie -- including two old TV 'Friends,' a sci fi favorite and a fabulously funny female who'd bring inappropriate 'Office' hijinks to a whole new level.

Lottery Winner Nearly Duped by a Fake Lost Love on 'House' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 3rd 2011 1:16AM
Donal Logue, 'House'Winning the lottery can be both the greatest experience of your life, and one of the most frightening. Any time money is involved, people tend to go crazy. Just look at what happens to a lot of families when there's an inheritance on the line. Lottery winners face the biggest changes of all, as evidenced on 'House' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX).

Fresh off the under-appreciated 'Terriers,' Donal Logue was on as Cyrus, a lottery winnner who thought he'd reconnected with his long-lost love. Thanks to Thirteen, though, he learned that he was yet another victim of a money-grubbing relative.

His cousin, who he'd hired as his limo driver, perpetrated the scam to get even more money out of him and it nearly worked. Because it had been so long since Cyrus had seen the girl he loved, his cousin was able to bring in a fake love.

'Terriers' Finale Recap: The Many Joys of Hanging with Hank and Britt (VIDEO)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Dec 1st 2010 11:05PM
With a lot of shows, you have to choose between plot and character.

'Terriers,' as the FX drama ably demonstrated in its well-crafted first-season finale on Wednesday, supplies ample servings both, and that's a rarity worth savoring. Plus the world 'Terriers' created in 13 episodes felt so real and complete that if I ever visit Ocean Beach, I expect to find Hank and Britt arguing over coffee and eggs in a rundown diner.

Of course I very much want the low-rated 'Terriers' to get a second season, but this isn't going to be one of those "Save 'Terriers'" pieces. This is simply going to be a celebration of the things this compelling, funky, smart show did well.

Get comfortable. We might be here awhile.

'Terriers' Is the Best New Show of 2010: Why You Should Be Watching

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 17th 2010 10:30AM
Lately I've heard from readers and friends who gave 'Terriers' a try but gave up on it after an episode or three.

Go back to the show (which airs at 10PM ET Wednesdays on FX), and please, give it another shot. This complicated, very enjoyable private-detective drama is that good. It's great, in fact.

I still have a great deal of respect for 'Boardwalk Empire,' an excellent drama that I thought would emerge as the best new program of 2010. Don't get me wrong, 'Boardwalk Empire' will definitely be on my year-end Top 10 list. But I care about the characters on 'Terriers' in a whole different way. It's the best new show of 2010. If this 'Terriers' goes away, which it might, thanks to low ratings, it'll be a very bad day for quality television.

So here are five suggestions on how FX might alter the show in order to goose the ratings for a second season (which I very much want):

1. Just add zombies. Duh.

2. Rename it 'CSI: Ocean Beach' and make the hilarious nerds that help private detective Hank Dolworth into white-jacketed lab techs.

'Terriers': Hank Gives Aggressive, Unconventional Pep Talk (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Oct 21st 2010 12:00PM
Hank Gives Aggressive Pep Talk on 'Terriers'Adam, an amnesiac college student, is having one hell of a mental breakdown on 'Terriers' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). Now he's armed -- but not dangerous, in Hank's opinion.

Forgoing police protection, Hank charges into the apartment and is able to swipe his gun. It's filled with water. "If you want them to shoot you, you don't fill it with water first!"

Adam is racked with guilt. But Hank says, "Those pills you took -- they made you do what you did." No, Adam is convinced he's sick, he's crazy.

Hank shouts, "You want to see crazy? I'll show you crazy 'cause I know it!" and he throws him against the wall. "Now listen to me, man: You do not get to do this. There are people out there who have a kind of crazy that will never go away. And they have to keep on living. And what happened to you is gonna pass ... Pull yourself together!"

Talking 'Terriers' with Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 20th 2010 5:30PM
When a show isn't doing well in the ratings, it's not unusual for the actors involved to tout their programs on Twitter or do interviews to drum up interest.

Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James have taken advocacy for their series to a whole new level. The actors are crisscrossing the country in a tour bus, going to county fairs, football games and college campuses to draw attention to their terrific but ratings-challenged FX drama, 'Terriers' (10PM ET Wednesday, FX).

I'd say they were dogged in their advocacy for the show, but I have a feeling that would be the wrong choice of words.

"We hurt ourselves by having a bad title. The title alienates a lot of people we've run into on the tour, and they've expressed it frankly, which is cool," Logue said in an interview that he and Raymond-James gave before a Chicago-area appearance on Tuesday. "In our dangerous moments, in our emotionally poignant moments, it's not different from [FX's biggest hit,] 'Sons of Anarchy.' ['Terriers'] is operating in similar emotional quicksand."

'Terriers': Getting Rid of a Corpse Is Harder Than You Think (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Oct 7th 2010 10:00AM
'Terriers': Getting Rid of a Corpse Is Harder Than You ThinkHow hard can getting rid of a dead body be? It should be pretty easy, right? But for our bumbling anti-heroes on 'Terriers' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX), even the simplest task can lead to massive complications.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Since the first episode of the show, detectives Hank and Britt have been plagued by evil real estate developer Robert Lindus (played by Christopher Cousins). Lindus has conned them, betrayed them, and involved our heroes in a ridiculously convoluted murder case. But now, Lindus is dead! Hurray! He's dead! And his body is located in a car that's perched right by the edge of a ravine. All the buddies have to do is push the car over the cliff, and they're done.

Hank and Britt Learn You Don't Bring a Bat to a Fight With a Giant on 'Terriers' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 16th 2010 5:09AM
'Terriers' - 'Dog and Pony'The boys on 'Terriers' (Wed., 10PM on FX) were in need of some quick cash this week. But the challenge before them may have outweighed their need, as they agreed to bring in an escaped convict who was easily twice their size. Played by 6'7" tall character actor Matthew Willig, Montell is a mountain of a man, and these guys just don't have the skills or equipment to take him in, or even down.

While preparing to go in, Hank (Donal Logue) had his partner carry a bat and told him, "If for any reason, he doesn't go down, not to worry. You hit him with the pepper spray."

Unfortunately, they didn't get the chance to do any of that, as Montell practically grabbed Britt (Michael Raymond-James) by the face and pulled him into the house.

'Terriers' Premiere: Small-Time Detectives Try to Solve the Really Big CrimesAn ex-cop and an ex-con are paired together on the new drama 'Terriers' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). Partners Hank and Britt (played by Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James) are scruffy and broke. They don't have a license for their detective agency. Their most powerful weapon against crime is a filthy old pickup truck. Hilariously, they're even willing to solve a case in exchange for having their clothes dry-cleaned.

The question is this: Are these two investigators too "small-time" to take on the big cases? Let's find out.

'Terriers' Season 1 Review

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 8th 2010 9:00AM
What it is: 'Terriers' follows best friends Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue) and Britt Pollack (Michael Raymond-James), two unlicensed private investigators in San Diego. Their dogged and sometimes comedic exploits earn them enemies in high places.

When it airs: 'Terriers' debuts on Wednesday 10PM on FX.

Hollywood occasionally offers modern updates on film noir, but television rarely does, which is a pity. What's not to love about broken-down detectives warily sniffing out the crimes of the rich and powerful? Betrayal, both personal and political, offers rich pickings to writers intrigued by the "mystery" half of "murder mystery."

San Diego seems to be a magnet for the few shows that explore noir-ish terrain; the late, lamented 'Veronica Mars' had a high school detective exposing the ugly side of the oceanside paradise. The diverting and enjoyable 'Terriers' occupies a different stylistic territory, but there's a noir strain underneath its shaggy exterior. As the best detective stories do, it features a smart, flawed lead character who is too stubborn and inquisitive for his own good.

Hank Dolworth is a newly sober, newly divorced former cop who's trying to make a go of it as a private detective; judging by the state of his beat-up truck, his new career path isn't exactly lucrative. Still, in his scruffy new gig, he gets to hang out with his best friend, the boyish and impetuous Britt, and together they get into all kinds of scrapes (if you want someone to steal your dog from your ex, these are the guys to call).

TerriersAn ex-cop and an ex-con team up as a ragtag P.I. duo? OK, tell me more...

Well, that's kind of all she wrote according to 'Terriers' star Donal Logue. Of course there's more to his new series (premieres Wed., Sept. 8, 10PM ET on FX), but his "it is what it was" explanation proves that it's not your average buddy cop/robber/investigator show, and a lot of that has to do with the pairing of Logue and 'True Blood' alum Michael Raymond-James. The two have chemistry to burn and give the drama just the right amount of levity.

I caught up with Logue and Raymond-James to hear more about their characters' unilkely pairing, working with writer and executive producer Shawn Ryan, creator Ted Griffin (he wrote 'Ocean's Eleven'), Craig Brewer and Tim Minear, and how they're not too unlike the guys they play.

The new dramedy, from 'Ocean's Eleven' scribe Ted Griffin and 'The Shield' creator Shawn Ryan, stars Logue ('Life') and Raymond-James ('True Blood') as a pair of low rent P.I.s trying to eek out a living on the lesser-traveled streets of San Diego.

Zap2it has posted the first official trailer for the show, which looks like it's trying to strike a delicate balance between its two creators' distinct storytelling styles.
