Actor Spotlight: Jacob Pitts

You enjoyed Justified, didn’t you? It was a great show that premiered for six seasons on FX, featuring Timothy Olyphant as the main character Raylan Givens in a modern-day Western of sorts. But, you know who was truly a great character on that show that was not utilized enough? Jacob Pitts as Tim Gutterson. The former sniper who never missed was full of snark and sass and while he gave us gold every time he was on the screen, there was a serious lack of Tim throughout the seasons. Pitts has been acting for some time, ever since 1999 with

NBC Orders New Law & Order Spin-Off: Hate Crimes

Some Law & Order shows are more successful than others. While Trial by Jury and Los Angeles only had one season, Criminal Intent had ten, the original Law & Order had 20, and the current show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is going strong into its twentieth season with no signs of stopping. Even the Chicago spinoffs from Dick Wolf, such as Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med are all doing well. So, it couldn’t be a more perfect time to introduce another spin-off show on NBC, which will be Law & Order: Hate Crimes. NBC has ordered

Peter Scanavino: A Career in Law & Order

Ever since Peter Scanavino walked on set in season sixteen of the long-running crime show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Detective Dominick “Sonny” Carisi, he’s been a fan favorite. The Italian-American from Staten Island who offers his teammates food and takes care of his co-workers’ children is hard to dislike. This character was meant to only come on briefly, but has been in the show for the last four seasons, including the upcoming twentieth season. Although we all love Carisi, Scanavino has had a long run in the Law & Order franchise. While he’s been in other movies
