You have questions. I have a few answers.
Q: Who is this gray haired, hoarse voice actor on Chicago PD? He is excellent in every scene. He’s in the Eddie Egan class, the epitome of a tough cop.
A: You think of Jason Beghe, who plays Hank Voight in the NBC drama. A film actor for over 35 years, he was often seen on television and in the movies, usually as a tough guy. The gritty voice has arrived well in his acting career. “In 1999 I had a serious car accident,” Beghe told the New York Daily News in 2014. “I was intubated and kept pulling this tube out of my throat. It’s like that. that I had the voice. ” His involvement with Scientology has also been important in his off-camera life; he is said to have left the organization after about a dozen years and has openly opposed it since 2008.
By the way, for those of you late listening, Eddie Egan was a real New York cop who inspired the character of Gene Hackman in The French Connection. The Egans later included a number of interim roles, primarily as law enforcement types; he died in 1984.
Q: My favorite TV show is Lincoln Rhyme. Will it be back or has it been canceled? The lead actor is very good and I’ve seen him on other TV shows.
A: The official title Lincoln Rhyme: The Hunt for the Bone Collector was canceled after one season. This came even though it was inspired by both a series of Jeffrey Deaver novels and a bone collector movie starring Denzel Washington as Rhyme. In the TV series, the Paralyzed Detective was played by handsome actor Russell Hornsby, who worked with Washington in the screen version of Fences, and whose other credits include the TV series “Grimm” and the movie The Hate U Give.
Q; When will Yellowstone return? I love the show!
A: There hasn’t been a date announced for the fourth season of the Paramount Network drama starring Kevin Costner. But the season would have finished filming and could have a return in June since it was the first month of the three previous seasons. By the way, there is also in the works a prequel series, Y: 1883, on the pioneer years of the Dutton family, and a saga derived from breeding, “6666”.
Q: Can you know if there will be another episode of “World on Fire” which premieres on PBS in winter 2019? It was a great series with Helen Hunt. This left the stories of several characters unfinished and we hope it will continue from there.
A: The first season of the war drama was well received and a second season has been announced. But I don’t know when it will start. Production was delayed during the pandemic and a report said it would return no earlier than the end of 2021.
On the Masterpiece website, World on Fire creator Peter Bowker offered this second season teaser: Kasia and Lois will meet, and the spinoff, I think for everyone, will be interesting and fascinating. Season 2 will begin, historically, with the blitz in North West England. And North Africa will truly be the battleground. Learn more about the history of the Websters family. Nancy will finally have to leave Berlin towards the start of the series, for having crossed a line, and we will also know more about Nancy. And she will continue. She will definitely be in the Soviet Union for part of it. So yes, that’s the form it takes. And Lois, of course, trapped in a rather Bronte-esque, loveless marriage to Vernon.
