Garret Dillahunt

Gary Unmarried season finale airs this week

Yeah, a little earlier than expected.

The episode (2×17) is called “Gary Unmarried?” and it airs on Wednesday, March 17 at 8:30/7:30c on CBS. Garret plays Gary’s divorce lawyer.

Here is the synopsis:


“Gary Unmarried?” – When Gary finds out that he and Allison’s divorce papers were never filed, he uses the information to manipulate her into giving him his stuff back. Meanwhile, Allison’s sister Rachael comes to town and gives Mitch a makeover, on the season finale of GARY UNMARRIED, Wednesday, March 17 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Baryo update and some older clips

Some details about Garret’s character in Baryo showed up today on yet another blog to watch, Extras in Paradise. This is from a Q & A with John Sayles:

EA – Are any of the characters based on the journal authors?

[John Sayles] – A lot of the soldiers are compilations of the soldiers I read about in many diaries. More specifically Chris Cooper’s (Colonel Hardacre) is based on an actual Colonel named Hellroarin’ Jacob Smith. Lieutenant Compton’s character is based on a volunteer officer, which would have been one of the better educated Americans who came to the Philippines for… glory or something. They eventually had to choose to go home or sign up as an officer. Compton’s plays one of those men who begins to pick his head up and see what’s going on. Rafael is based on any of the 100,000 or Filipino mayors who suffered by being caught between the American’s and the rebels.

And I’ve finally uploaded a few clips from Maximum Bob and the early movies. You can find them here: Maximum Bob, By Courier, Last Call, Remembering Sex.

Updates: Burn Notice, Keep Hope Alive

Burn Notice showrunner Matt Nix did a Q & A yesterday and talked about the guest stars this season. He also dropped some vague spoilers about the general direction of the show. The interview is here.

Well certainly in the finale, we have Garret Dillahunt coming and doing a pretty amazing bad guy. Let’s see, the guy who played Tony Almeida on 24. I’m completely blanking on his name. In any case, he is in the episode after this week’s episode and he is playing a bad guy who Fiona has a real connection to. Oh sorry, Carlos Bernard, yes playing a bad guy who is really sort of only removed from the characters on the show by— under other circumstances he could have been one of the team, but he is willing to do certain things that they’re not willing to do and that’s a divide that they just can’t cross. But he’s a guy who’s really committed to what he’s doing, really cares about what he’s doing. It’s a pretty devastating performance. He’s pretty awesome. I’d say Garret and Carlos Bernard are the ones that are upcoming that really jump out at me right now.

And it seems that we won’t find out if Keep Hope Alive will be picked up for another few months. From Entertainment Weekly:

Fox has loads of multi-camera comedy pilots in the works – including new projects from Greg Garcia (My Name is Earl) and the duo of David Kohan and Max Mutchnik (Will & Grace). Here are the network’s fall pilots, many are still being cast (decisions on which projects will be ordered to series won’t be made until the weeks leading up to Fox’s presentation to advertisers, which occurs this May in New York):
Keep Hope Alive (Greg Garcia). A single-camera comedy about a simple-minded 20-something man who is raising a daughter. Cast includes Martha Plimpton (Parenthood) and Cloris Leachman (The Women).

Burn Notice season three finale airs…

… on Thursday, March 4, at 10 ET according to USA’s schedule. That’s two weeks from tomorrow.

NBC Universal has released a few promotional stills from the episode, among them this one:

And here is the synopsis for “Devil You Know,” from

Michael is approached by his alter ego – the man who actually committed the crimes that were used to burn him.

New TV appearance: Gary Unmarried season finale

Some television news.

Garret will appear in the season 2 finale of Gary Unmarried, the CBS sitcom with Jay Mohr and Paula Marshall. He will play Goose McNair, Gary’s divorce lawyer who (I think) has been referenced throughout the series as the guy who got his degree online and went touring with David Hasselhoff during the proceedings (anyone watching?) The show airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.

In the meantime, here is another blog to watch while Baryo is in production. One fine nose portrait right here.

Also, people on Twitter will remember this picture from a few weeks back. Well, the MMA Heat episode is up (no region restrictions) and it includes an interview with the man. Link:

And watch out for some older clips later this week.
