935 Niall Matter, actor, "Eureka"

Today's Guest: Niall Matter, actor "Eureka," Watchmen Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of panting young women who are complaining that the living room studio could really stand to have a full liquor bar and more Chex Mix… in the new new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! Part 1 of 2   Niall Matter stars as "Zane Donovan"in the Syfy original series, "Eureka," airing Mondays at 8 p.m. this summer. Bad news for former “Ugly Betty” actor Christopher Gorham -- Buddy TV just named Niall Matter “the hunkiest nerd in the history of TV.” That’s right: the man who plays Deputy Sheriff Jo’s love interest, Zane Donovan, on the Syfy hit “Eureka,” is officially hot. NIALL MATTER audio excerpt: "You'll see Zane and Jo struggle to figure out if they even want a relationship with each other... It has been a great gift for me as an actor to get that re-start in the timeline." Of course the women in my household have been saying that for some time now: the smoldering sensuality, the bad boy antics and the reckless behavior, all wrapped up in the mind of a scientific genius, apparently makes for good TV. Whatevah! ] Order from Amazon.com by clicking the DVD cover above If you’ve never watched “Eureka” — what’s wrong with you? It’s one of the smartest shows on TV these days, always managing to one-up itself. It’s part of a lineup of great returning summer shows alongside “Warehouse 13” and “Haven.” And thanks to an inspired new take on the old alternate timeline scheme, Matter has earned an opportunity to return to Zane’s wilder nature. Before several of the show’s leads went back in time to World War II-era Eureka, he was on the verge of marrying Deputy Jo. But when their return to modern-day Eureka screwed up the time-space continuum, Zane knew nothing of the other Zane’s proposal and instead of being ready to wed, he was ready to party all the time. Sharp-eyed viewers probably already recognize Matter from stints on several Syfy standards, including “Stargate Atlantis” and “Warehouse 13,” although he may be best known to others as “Mothman” from the film adaptation of the Watchmen graphic novel. Now it’s my pleasure to greet the only man to ever be a guest on this show and be better looking than me, Niall Matter.

Order ‘The Lawyer’s Lawyer; by James Sheehan, available from Amazon.com by clicking on the book cover above!

When I walk my dog in the morning and again in the evening, there is a 99 percent chance I’ll have a brush with the law in my neighborhood.

First I go by Michael’s house. He’s the senior member of the neighborhood firm, a sole practitioner who, it turns out, knows his way around Hollywood in ways no one would ever guess.

Next door to him is attorney Dave, my liberal minded, wild-eyed sports buddy.

Around the corner is Jim, who spent years as an attorney before becoming a law professor and administrator.

JAMES SHEEHAN audio excerpt: “The Lawyer’s Lawyer opens with serial killings. But the major thrust of the book is when Jack Tobin becomes involved in the case. Is he going to represent a serial killer on death row? Jack has always believed that the people that he represented were innocent, even if he wasn’t sure. Here, he’s saddled with a moral question. What if he’s wrong? What are the ramifications of it?”Â

Jim, by the way, might be better know to fans of legal fiction as James Sheehan, author of bestselling novels such as The Mayor of Second Avenue and The Law of Second Chances. We talk often about our respective projects and the ups and downs of writing books. About two years ago, I was honored to get an early look at an upcoming Sheehan story in development and earlier this year got to see his latest, The Lawyer’s Lawyer, in galley form.

If you were a fan of Jim’s first two books and the entanglements of fictional Florida attorney Jack Tobin, you’ll be pleased to know he returns to action in The Lawyer’s Lawyer.

And if you’ve never read Sheehan before but like the high-octane thrillers of John Grisham, Michael Connelly, James Grippando and Scott Turow, it will be well worth your time and money to order a few of Mr. Sheehan’s fine works.

829 Kerry Sanders, NBC News correspondent

Today's Guest: Kerry Sanders, NBC News correspondent Mr. Media is recorded live before a courtroom audience of people who think all evidence should be presented with smaller words and in fewer days… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! Kerry Sanders, NBC News I have done my best to keep the Casey Anthony case at arm’s length from day one. Since becoming a dad almost 15 years ago, I have had no tolerance for real-life or even fictional stories that detail abuse to children. Seeing harm befall your child is every parent’s nightmare and I found the fewer stories of it I absorbed during the day, the better I slept at night. And no, I don’t watch “Law & Order” or “CSI.” KERRY SANDERS podcast excerpt: "(The Casey Anthony murder trial) is a captivating story so I'm understand why people have set aside the details of their daily lives to see what is going to happen." That said, I’m setting aside my embargo on discussing child endangerment, abuse and murder because an old friend of mine – and of this show – NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders, is available to talk about his coverage of the Casey Anthony murder trial that is wrapping up in Orlando, Florida. Kerry has been NBC's Miami-based correspondent since 1996, covering news mainly in the South and throughout Latin America. He contributes regularly to "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams," "Today," MSNBC and occasionally to "Dateline NBC." You have seen his memorable coverage of stories such as Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Andrew, the war in Kosovo, the Haitian military coup and the ATF military siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. He was also a reporter embedded with the US Marines during the Iraq War. I think it’s safe to say that that was a most terrifying time for not just Kerry, but for his lovely wife Deborah Sharp (listen to her Mr. Media interview HERE) and all of his friends. Every report filed during those days was a good day back home.

569 Gillian Jacobs, actress, "Community," "Love"

Today's Guest: Gillian Jacobs, actress, "Community," "Love" The women of NBC sitcom "Community": Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs (Photo: Lewis Jacobs/NBC) Gillian Jacobs stars on the NBC sitcom "Community" (Photo: Mitchell Haaseth/NBC) NBC’s freshman comedy sensation “Community” is ending its first season on a high note: Entertainment Weekly made the show’s season finale tonight Number 1 on its Top Ten “Must List” of things to do this week. And it singled out co-stars Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs for the developments in their characters. So how lucky am I to welcome Community beauty Gillian to Mr. Media today? Pretty damn lucky. < Order 'Community: The Complete Third Season' starring Gillian Jacobs, available from Amazon.com by clicking on the DVD cover above! GILLIAN JACOBS podcast excerpt: "You start with this kind sensible person in the pilot. As the season goes on, you find her shortcomings, her flaws, her quirks. She gets told she is humorless. She's no longer the moral authority on the show. Donald's character, Troy, has this line, 'I want to believe you, Britta, but you're not quite right, are you?'" Gillian’s character, “Britta,” has grown as “Community” itself blossomed this season. When the show debuted, she seemed destined to be a one-noter whose sole purpose seemed to be swatting down blatant advances by McHale’s womanizing character Jeff. But as the weeks went on, the writers found better, smarter ways of putting her to work, expanding Britta into as fully formed a person as everyone around her-including the more evolved Jeff. Regular listeners know I’m a fan of “Community,” which is why Gillian is the fifth star of the show invited to join me on Mr. Media.

1327 Daniel Cross, documentary filmmaker, "I Am The Blues"

Today's Guest: Daniel Cross, documentary filmmaker, "I Am The Blues"   Watch this exclusive Mr. Media interview with Daniel Cross by clicking on the video player above!  Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of blues fans who love the music but never thought about actually going to Louisiana or Mississippi to see it performed live … in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! I Am The Blues, documentary by Daniel Cross. Order your copy today by clicking on the movie poster above! When I finished watching Daniel Cross’s new documentary I Am the Blues, what I really wanted – besides an immediate trip to the Mississippi Delta – was a soundtrack album. It is the sounds of this wonderful guide to the backwoods of Louisiana and Mississippi that will stay with you – haunting, electrifying and thrilling anyone with a musical soul. Daniel Cross podcast excerpt: "Bobby Rush and Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes talk about the rappers and hip-hop. They're all singing the blues in their lyrics about the struggle of surviving the difficulties of their lives. The beat might be different, but it's still the blues at a certain level." For most viewers I suspect, Cross provides a first introduction to an aging generation of blues veterans that still live in the American deep south and that made their livings and reputations for decades on the Chitlin’ Circuit. These folks include Barbara Lynn, Little Freddie King, Lazy Lester, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Bilbo Walker, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, RL Boyce, LC Ulmer and Lil' Buck Sinegal. I Am the Blues is available on DVD and via digital download from all leading on-demand platforms.

790 Rizwan Manji, actor, "Outsourced"

Today's Guest: Actor Rizwan Manji, star, "Outsourced" Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of staff writers for Martha Stewart Weddings, who steal all their best ideas from me… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! Actors Rizwan Manji (l) and Sacha Dhawan, stars of the NBC sitcom Outsourced A wedding seems the appropriate analogy to finish out the first season of the NBC sitcom "Outsourced." The show, about a white bread American exiled to run a Mombai, India call center, seemed more out of this world to TV critics and many viewers when it debuted in September 2010 than even Star Trek’s blue-skinned, antennaed Andorians. "Outsourced" took a critical drubbing before most Americans even knew it was on the air. But a funny thing happened on the way to the Mid American Novelties’ annual shareholders meeting: NBC renewed "Outsourced" for a full season. Somebody, somewhere believed in the show. Actors Rizwan Manji (l) and Noureen DeWulf, stars of the NBC sitcom Outsourced Order 'Outsourced: The Complete Series,' available right now at a great price by clicking on the book cover above! And I think you can even make a case that putting it at the end of the network’s three-hour Thursday comedy block was a loving, protective move. Slotted at 10:30 p.m. took the pressure off, giving audiences a chance to discover it on their own terms at a time of night when expectations were low. I would also argue that both moves took the pressure off the writing staff, who shaped a lump of coal into a shimmering diamond. Characters developed and blossomed. Storylines – such as assistant manager Rajiv’s efforts to woo his beloved and her stony, disapproving father — were given gentle showcases and, as they say, hilarity ensued. We learned that Rajiv – played by Rizwan Manji – had a heart. And that despite all his efforts to be disdained by his employees, they loved him nonetheless. RIZWAN MANJI audio excerpt: "('Outsourced') is such a different kind of TV than we've ever seen... These characters are so endearing and lovable, you're just rooting for them to succeed." So this marriage, unspooling in a two-part episode starting May 5 and concluding on May 12, represents not just the coming together of Rajiv & Vimi. It also marks the union of an Indian cast of sitcom characters and an American TV audience. Just this morning I read in Variety that the show has won over the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications as well as South Asians in Media, Marketing and Entertainment, both of which are actively lobbying NBC to give "Outsourced" a second season. That’s important because the network might respond if it sees a chance to market to a welcoming, niche audience it hasn’t programmed to in the past.

Order ‘The Lawyer’s Lawyer; by James Sheehan, available from Amazon.com by clicking on the book cover above!

When I walk my dog in the morning and again in the evening, there is a 99 percent chance I’ll have a brush with the law in my neighborhood.

First I go by Michael’s house. He’s the senior member of the neighborhood firm, a sole practitioner who, it turns out, knows his way around Hollywood in ways no one would ever guess.

Next door to him is attorney Dave, my liberal minded, wild-eyed sports buddy.

Around the corner is Jim, who spent years as an attorney before becoming a law professor and administrator.

JAMES SHEEHAN audio excerpt: “The Lawyer’s Lawyer opens with serial killings. But the major thrust of the book is when Jack Tobin becomes involved in the case. Is he going to represent a serial killer on death row? Jack has always believed that the people that he represented were innocent, even if he wasn’t sure. Here, he’s saddled with a moral question. What if he’s wrong? What are the ramifications of it?”Â

And one house over from Jim is Lance, a sheriff’s deputy and fellow dog owner.

Good friends and good neighbors all.

Jim, by the way, might be better know to fans of legal fiction as James Sheehan, author of bestselling novels such as The Mayor of Second Avenue and The Law of Second Chances. We talk often about our respective projects and the ups and downs of writing books. About two years ago, I was honored to get an early look at an upcoming Sheehan story in development and earlier this year got to see his latest, The Lawyer’s Lawyer, in galley form.

If you were a fan of Jim’s first two books and the entanglements of fictional Florida attorney Jack Tobin, you’ll be pleased to know he returns to action in The Lawyer’s Lawyer.

And if you’ve never read Sheehan before but like the high-octane thrillers of John Grisham, Michael Connelly, James Grippando and Scott Turow, it will be well worth your time and money to order a few of Mr. Sheehan’s fine works. (By the way, you can find Mr. Media interviews with Connelly, Grippando and Turow at MrMedia.com.)
