Dennis Farina, Early Woody Allen, and Shows We’d Watch Again: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Actor Dennis Farina will be our special guest on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,

One of the industry’s busiest actors, Dennis Farina’s many credits in film and television include Out of Sight, Get Shorty, Bottle Shock, That Old Feeling, Saving Private Ryan, Reindeer Games, Buddy Faro, Empire Falls, Midnight Run, Thief and, of course, Crime Story. Dennis’ latest series, Luck, a provocative look at the world of horse racing executive produced by Michael Mann and David Milch, will premiere on HBO in January 2012.

Dennis Farina is also the star of The Last Rites of Joe May, the story of an aging, short-money hustler looking for redemption that has elements of such classic films as Tender Mercies and High Noon. Throughout it all Farina delivers a riveting, memorable performance. We’ll talk about Joe May, as well as some of Dennis’ other notable screen roles, when he joins us in our second hour.

The Last Rites of Joe May will be available to more than 40 million homes nationwide via Movies on Demand for eight weeks beginning Oct. 27. Check your cable or satellite carrier for more information. The film will also be available for instant viewing via iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and VUDU; in addition, it will have a limited theatrical release in New York during the month of November.

Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen will join us in our first hour as we take a look at the first month of the new television season: Which shows are doing well, which have already been canceled, which ones we’ve seen and which ones we’d recommend watching again. Plus: Phil Gries with some rare audio of the early television appearances of Woody Allen, whose life and career will be the subject of Seriously Funny: The Comic Art of Woody Allen, a two-part documentary that will air Nov. 20-21 on PBS.
