Jack McGee - Episode 347

• February 27th, 2015

Steve Cooper talks with actor Jack McGee. Jack has been very the last two years starring in NBC's The McCarthy's and USA's Benched and Common Law. Born and raised in the South Bronx, he is the youngest of eight children. Admittedly, this may have been his impetus to strive to get noticed – and successfully so, as he was the president of his senior class and a star football player. Shortly thereafter, he realized he had a knack for performing, and joined the 1960s rock band The Young Rascals.  Eventually transitioning into acting, he was able to make ends meet as a New York City firefighter in the late 1970s. Appropriately so, he got his first big part in the 1985 firefighter film Turk 182, and then moved to Hollywood where he went on to appear in a series of feature films, television movies, and TV series. His most notable television role has been as Chief Jerry Reilly on FX's edgy firefighter drama, Rescue Me. He also recurred as Hickey in the Spike TV series, Players and has guest starred on such TV series as "Drop Dead Diva, Rizzoli & Isles, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds, CSI: NY and Castle. He also starred in the critically acclaimed film The Fighter, opposite Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo.

Illeana Douglas - Episode 346

• February 23rd, 2015

Steve Cooper talks with actor Illeana Douglas. Illeana was one of the more versatile performers to emerge on film in the early 1990s. After small contributions to a few of director Martin Scorsese's films, including GoodFellas (1990), the actress grabbed the attention of audiences with her gutsy performance opposite Robert De Niro in Cape Fear (1991). She followed with a plethora of supporting roles, among them turns in the survival tale Alive (1993) and Gus Van Sant's dark satire To Die For (1995). As a lead, she was impressive and impassioned in the music industry-set Grace of My Heart (1996), and later flexed her comedic muscles as the classic "hooker with a heart of gold" in the woefully underappreciated comedy series Action (Fox, 1999). Occasionally, she ventured behind the camera for such efforts as Stories of Lost Souls (2005), for which she directed the segment entitled Supermarket. As an actress, she continually sought off-kilter indie films like the horror-comedy Otis (2008) and collaborated on personal projects such as the web series Easy to Assemble (2008- ), a fictionalized comedic version of her life, which she wrote, directed and starred in. Equally adept at eliciting either tears or laughter, at ease in a supporting role and more than capable of carrying the lead, time and again she proved herself a welcome addition to any production.
