|Last Nights Supernatural
I don't usually write about episodes,I enjoy reading what others have to say though. But last night was, as Dean would say AWESOME.. First Dean was so hot dressed in a 1940's suit. And then there were all the references to The Untouchables(love that movie) and then there's Nick Lea,who made a fantastic Eliot Ness. Sam and Sheriff Mills made a great team..
I was wondering if anyone got pics from the show(screen caps),especially any containing Nick Lea. I'd like to post them to his yahoo group. I will of course credit you.. Current Mood: excited

Sorry but you'll all have to suffer through me bragging!!!
In the last agility trial of the year,Mojo qualified twice,earning his Open Standard(OA)Title with a First Place and his Open Jumpers with Weaves(OAJ)Title with a Second Place.

|Jeffrey Dean Morgan who is busy shooting for ‘Magic City’ tells Ian Spelling about his career plans|
Air? Who needs to come up for air? Certainly not Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The actor has wrapped four films that will have been released by the end of 2011: The Resident, Texas Killing Fields, Peace, Love & Understanding and The Courier. The long-delayed Red Dawn remake will finally open in 2012, as will The Possession. And right now Morgan is shooting an upcoming cable-television series entitled Magic City.
‘’I spent a lot of years doing nothing but breathing air and not working,’’ the actor says. ‘’So, when everything took off in 2005, I sort of grabbed onto it and I’ve not let go. I have got white knuckles trying to hold onto what’s going on right now, but I have been lucky enough to go from project to project, and to do different projects, completely different characters. It’s been a mix.
‘’It’s been a lot,’’ Morgan continues, ‘’but I don’t know what else to do now. You’re not going to see pictures of me in Hawaii with my girlfriend and kid. I work. It’s what I do, it’s what I like to do. I figure my vacation was the first 38 years of my life, so I’m going to take advantage of this now.’’
The ruggedly handsome Morgan had been acting for nearly 15 years, logging numerous television guest shots and appearing in films barely anyone ever saw, when in 2005 he landed memorable recurring roles on two high-profile television series: He played the father of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles’ characters on Supernatural (2005-2008), and almost simultaneously melted hearts as Denny Duquette, the doomed lover of Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) on the then-runaway hit Grey’s Anatomy (2006-2009). He went on to a number of big-screen roles, most notably as the murdered superhero the Comedian in Watchmen (2009).
‘’I’ve learned a lot since then,’’ the 45-year-old Morgan says. ‘’It’s tricky, exceedingly tricky, to pick the right roles. I’ve learned some valuable lessons in the last couple of years, and mostly that is that you can have a script that reads good but, if you don’t have the right director, the right editor, the right cast, whatever you read that initially attracted you to it can turn into a complete and utter disaster over which you have no control.
‘’I’d always made decisions on projects thinking that they’d be good, that they’d turn out,’’ he continues. ‘’I’ve never once gone into a movie thinking, ‘Well, this is going to be a turd.’ I’ve always thought there was something redeeming and good about these projects. And then, sometimes, you see the final version and it’s disappointing. But that’s the nature of this business.
‘’So I kept plugging away and thinking that eventually all these worlds you need to be in sync for a great project are going to collide,’’ Morgan says. ‘’It’s happened a couple of times, and you just keep hoping.’’
Morgan is speaking by telephone from Miami, where he is shooting Magic City, to talk about Texas Killing Fields, the next film in his release queue. Set to open on Oct. 14, the fact-based drama casts Morgan and Sam Worthington as Heigh and Souder, two cops trying to crack the case of a vicious serial killer who is dumping bodies in a small-town Texas marshland dubbed The Killing Fields. The cast also includes Jessica Chastain as another cop on the case and Chloe Grace Moretz as a young local girl who vanishes even as the killer switches tactics and begins to menace the cops themselves.
‘’Don Ferrarone wrote an amazing script,’’ Morgan says. ‘’It’s a real dark look, and a real look, at a couple of homicide cops. It’s based on a true story, which will always intrigue me. And first I met with Michael Mann, the producer, and then I met his daughter Ami, who directed this. She was so prepared and passionate that I was immediately drawn in.
‘’Then I did ride-alongs – the real deal, not the actor BS kind of ride-alongs – with the sheriff’s homicide department of Los Angeles,’’ the actor continues. ‘’Then I went and spent time in Texas City with the guy I’m portraying. Once I saw the ‘Texas Killing Fields,’ which is a real place, and stood where bodies had been recovered, and once I saw the crime-scene photos, everything came together for me then. And it was a film I had to do.’’
His conversations with Brian Goetschius, the inspiration for his character, proved invaluable, he says. Morgan describes Goetschius as an unusual man to find in his kind of job – happily married, raising six kids and stopping at church every day on his way to work.
‘’How he’s able to do that was the most intriguing part to me of the whole story,’’ Morgan says. ‘’The real Brian is such an amazing person. It was an honour to step into his shoes, and I took it really seriously. Doing a movie like this, you have to be so true to it, to the victims, to their families and to the guys that we’re portraying, and that’s all I wanted to do. That was the key for me on this movie, being as true as we could be and as respectful as we could be to these people.
‘’It’s a good little movie,’’ he concludes, ‘’and I’m glad people will get a chance to see it. It’ll start out as a limited release and go wider. I don’t know if it’s for everyone – it deals with stuff people don’t generally like. There’s no glossing of fairy tale over this film at all. It’s as much real stuff as you can jam into an hour-and-45-minute film.’’
Morgan has yet to see any of the other films he’s completed. While he speaks positively of both The Possession, a horror movie in which he co-stars with Kyra Sedgwick, and Red Dawn, which went before the camera in 2009 and finally will be released early next year, he seems most jazzed about Magic City.
The upcoming Starz series follows the exploits of Ike Evans (Morgan), a Jewish hotel boss contending with mobsters, his family and all manner of guests at his Fontainebleau-like hotel in Miami, circa 1959. Olga Kurylenko plays Evans’ wife and Danny Huston co-stars as a mob figure.
‘’It’s like nothing that’s ever been on television,’’ Morgan says. ‘’From what I’ve seen, and I’ve only seen parts of it, we’re doing an eight-hour movie. The sets that have been built are the most amazing things I’ve ever seen on anything, on television or film. Mitch Glazer, who wrote every episode that we’ve done, is maybe the smartest, coolest guy I’ve met in my life, and this world that he’s had in his head has now come to life, and it’s a spectacle.
‘’This will be the most amazing thing television has seen in years,’’ Morgan says. ‘’That’s how confident I feel about it, and I never say that (blarney) about my projects.’’
Whatever hours he doesn’t devote to his career are spent with his family. He and his girlfriend, White Collar o-star Hilarie Burton, have been together since 2009, and are the parents of Gus, born early last year.
‘’Hilarie is a superhero,’’ Morgan says. ‘’I don’t know how she’s able to raise my little boy, take care of me and have a job. She’s the most amazing woman in the world, and how she puts up with me, we’ll never know.
‘’They’ve both been here most of the time,’’ he adds, ‘’because her show is wrapped for the season. So it’s been such a great time. Life is grand, my friend.’’
