Hand of God

New interview from Tribeca

Hollywood Reporter has a new interview with Courteney Cox and the cast of Just Before I Go. Hit the link for the whole article.

With the end of Raising Hope this season, Dillahunt told THR that he’s embracing new opportunities even though he’ll miss working on the Fox sitcom.

“It was one of the best jobs I ever had,” Dillahunt said of Raising Hope. “It made for a good year for me because I’d get to do that for six months, try and make my coworkers laugh every day, and then go do movies for six months. It was kind of the perfect job in this crazy new landscape of television and film.”

“But, you know, all of them end. I guess it was its time,” he added. “I couldn’t be doing this new series that I’m doing called Hand of God for Amazon if I was going back to Raising Hope. I choose happiness!”

New pilot: Amazon’s Hand of God

Deadline reports that Garret has joined Ron Perlman in Amazon’s new pilot, Hand of God. I guess he really wasn’t kidding when he typed this. The pilot was written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice) and directed by Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, World War Z).

Here is what it’s about:

It centers on the powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him. Dillahunt will play KD, a young man who went looking for religion to cure his raging temper. He thinks he’s found God, but he is still a sociopath, and his temper is still raging. Pernell (Perlman) is a godsend for KD, as he gives him an intense singular focus, and an outlet for his violent tendencies. — Deadline
