Working on a show can involve long hours in less-than-perfect conditions, but the stars of A&E’s new drama “The Glades” don’t seem to mind too much. In the clip below, which Zap2it has first, Kiele Sanchez and Matt Passmore take you on a brief tour of their life on set (the show films on locations in Florida and Georgia).
And if you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll even see a slightly embarrassed Sanchez hide one of her bras that she’d apparently forgotten to clean up before letting the camera into her trailer. (more…)
A&E Network will premiere the original scripted drama series, “The Glades” on Sunday, July 11th at 10PM ET/PT. “The Glades,” a character driven police procedural set in the fictional town of Palm Glade, Florida, stars Australian actor Matt Passmore (“McLeod’s Daughters,” “Underbelly”), Kiele Sanchez (“Lost,” “Samantha Who?”), Carlos Gómez (“Shark,” “Sleeper Cell”) and Michelle Hurd (“Law & Order SVU,”” “Gossip Girl”).
In “The Glades,” Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former Captain’s wife is forced into exile. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle of nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. Yet life in this sleepy town is not as beautiful as it may seem. (more…)

A Perfect Getaway, Starring: Steve Zahn, Milla Jovovich, Timothy Olyphant, Kiele Sanchez, Chris Hemsworth, Marley Shelton Struggling Hollywood screenwriter Cliff (Zahn) and his pretty wife Cydney (Jovovich) arrive on Hawaii for their honeymoon and encounter the menacing Kale (Hemsworth) and his girlfriend Cleo (Shelton). Further down the road, Cliff and Cydney meet picture perfect lovebirds Nick (Olyphant) and Gina (Sanchez), who seem too good to be true.
The tropical idyll is rocked by news of brutal murders and a police hunt for a man and a woman, believed to have perpetrated the heinous crimes.
Cliff and Cydney fear the killers are one of the couples they have encountered along the way. As the newlyweds venture deeper into the jungle, unable to get a signal on their mobile phones, paranoia and fear gradually take hold.
A Perfect Getaway doesn’t quite live up to its title but this is a polished genre piece that keeps us guessing until the final act when all of the pent-up tension explodes with an action-packed finale and the spilling of copious blood.
When David Twohy’s grand design is revealed, we’re forced to admit that we’ve been hoodwinked.
We watched the director’s cut of A Perfect Getaway so I can’t speak to the theatrical version or whether it was different. But on the directors cut we say Yay-hoo-boo! We enjoyed this movie far more than expected by the ho-hum “honeymooners” trailer. Timothy Olyphant was excellent and we were cheering for him and his girlfriend by the end. This movie had subtlety and action and you really will enjoy the second half more than the first. The first half of the film was a lot of storyline building and character development and some things just don’t make sense in hindsight, but it was a really good weekend flick! (more…)
