Jonathan Banks joins ‘Better Call Saul’

Banks_Jonathan 01.01 Breaking BadAccording to deadline.com Jonathan Banks (Kolinski from Falcon Crest’s season 6) has joined Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul, AMC/Sony TV’s upcoming prequel to Emmy-winning Breaking Bad that centers on Odenkirk‘s unflappable criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Banks will be a series regular on the show conceived by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad writer-producer Peter Gould. The prequel series, slated to debut on AMC in November, will chronicle the evolution of Saul before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer. The deal with Banks means that Saul will have his trusted private investigator/fixer Michael “Mike” Ehrmantraut by his side. Banks was a regular on Breaking Bad and played Ehrmantraut for 2.5 seasons after being  introduced in the drama  series’ second-season finale.

Banks’ performance in the 2012 portion of Season 5 earned him an Emmy nomination, one of two for the veteran actor. (The first was for his role on the 1987 drama series Wiseguy).

Odenkirk and Banks are the only actors set for Better Call Saul so far. There has been a lot of speculation about which characters from Breaking Bad would make the transition to the prequel. In an interview, Gilligan had suggested that Mike would be a character he would love to see on the new series. 

The Better Call Saul gig further expands Banks’ relationship with Sony TV, where he currently recurs on the studio’s NBC comedy Community. He also will be seen in the upcoming Horrible Bosses 2.

Susan Sullivan Interview


Susan Sullivan on CASTLE Season 6 and more

Sullivan_Susan 01.01 Disney ABC Television Group's Summer TCA Party at Beverly Hilton 2010-08-01 ©zimbioOn CASTLE, now in its sixth season, Mondays at 10 PM on ABC, we have long known that our eponymous hero, played by Nathan Fillion, was raised alone by his mother, actress Martha Rodgers, portrayed by Susan Sullivan.

Last season, Castle encountered his father, by super-spy Jackson Hunt, played by guest star James Brolin. Now Martha knows that her son knows who his dad is. Since Castle is now engaged to NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle’s daughter Alexis (Molly C. Quinn) has a boyfriend, it’s possible Jackson may return to stir Martha’s life up a little.

At least, Sullivan says that’s something she’d like to see when we get to speak with her at a party thrown by ABC for the Television Critics Association.

ASSIGNMENT X: Going forward, do you know what you’d like to see happen with the rest of this season of CASTLE?

SUSAN SULLIVAN: I’m hoping they bring James Brolin back, for God’s sake. That would be fun.

AX: Were you pleased to find out that’s who Castle’s was played by?

SULLIVAN: Yeah. He’s an attractive guy. And he’s tall. You can look up. We women need to look up at a certain point. It’s a better angle.

AX: Had you ever imagined anybody in the role of Castle’s dad before it was cast?

SULLIVAN: You know, I gave it some thought. You tend to think of your friends, and I thought of David Selby from FALCON CREST, or Bob Foxworth, or that kind of thing, just because you have a history with an actor and it sort of informs the part and the relationship. But it’s always fun to meet somebody new.

AX: So do you have a favorite episode or scene in what we’ve seen until now? Do you like it when Martha gets to do her theatrical stuff and get into costume?

SULLIVAN: Yeah, I like that. I’d like Martha to write a book. I’d like Martha to sort of impact aging women with a sense of possibility and how it feels to feel marginalized and trying to stay in the game. That’s always what interested me about the character. So when those kinds of scenes come up, I like it. I’d like her to dance wildly around the house, because that’s how you get out of depression. I liked the Chet thing [when Martha almost got married]; I liked the relationship. Having a relationship was kind of nice.

AX: In the last couple of seasons, Martha’s had some episodes where she’s really been afraid that either Castle or Alexis is going to die – Alexis got kidnapped, Castle almost succumbed to a virus. Since Martha is not inherently a worrier, is it difficult doing those scenes without throwing her completely out of character whack?

SULLIVAN: You know, the character is used as she is needed in terms of the scripts. So sometimes she’s really wise and direct and smart; sometimes she’s completely stupid and off the wall. So she’s a little bit of everything. But the truth is that we’re filled with contradictions as human beings. So I think for the most part, I can make those scenes work, because I believe that we are very multi-dimensional.

AX: Do you feel motherly towards Nathan Fillion, since he plays your son?

SULLIVAN: Yes, I do. I do. In fact, during the break, while he was inBora Bora, or some exotic place, I had dinner with his mother Cookie, and I know him a little better now.

AX: Have you enjoyed seeing Molly Quinn grow up on the show as Martha’s granddaughter over the years you’ve been doing it?

SULLIVAN: I love Molly Quinn. We did a play together. We did KINDERTRANSPORT at L.A. TheatreWorks, and she really is a wonderful actress. She’s going to be better and better. She needs to be messier. She’s a little too perfect. But she’ll get there. She’s just delightful.

AX: The actual Kindertransport was to get Jewish children out of Germany before the outbreak of World War II. Can you describe the play KINDERTRANSPORT?

SULLIVAN: It’s a very kind of involved piece, because it goes back and forth in time, but it’s obviously about the kids who were sent from their parents in Germany, right before the break of the Second World War, to live in England, and about what happened to them, what happened to these kids who were suddenly left without parents and living with strangers and in a strange country. It’s a fascinating play. [Quinn] played my daughter. And I played the daughter of Jane Kaczmarek. So it was back and forth in time betweenGermany andEngland and the present and the past. We did it as a radio play. I was surprised. I didn’t know if it would work. It was kind of confusing to read, but to play it – the audiences were very enthused.

AX: What else do you have going on right now?

SULLIVAN: You have two CASTLE-heads here. Seamus [Dever, who plays CASTLE’s Detective Kevin Ryan] and I are doing charity lunches. We have two lined up. Fundraisers. We’re both in the same companies – the Antaeus Theatre Company and L.A. TheatreWorks.

AX: So people pay money to have lunch with the two of you to benefit the theatre groups?

SULLIVAN: Yes. It is amazing. I find it interesting to see who these people are.

AX: Is there anything else you’d like to say about CASTLE right now?

SULLIVAN: It’s a delightful place to be, and it’s great to have a job at this point in life.

Jamie Rose teaches workshop for writers

IMG_0158b_3On February 8, Jamie Rose will teach a workshop for writers at the PEN Center in Beverly Hills, CA.

Writers are often called upon to read their work aloud. In this one-day workshop, Jamie Rose will give each participant personalized performance coaching that addresses their individual concerns. Writers will come away with practical tools to help with issues from stage fright to comic timing and a deeper understanding of their work and what they are communicating through it.

The Workshop is limited to 10 participants. All participants must submit a 5-minute piece (can be a portion of a longer work) to be workshopped in class by Wednesday, January 30th.

More information can be found here.
