Kim Raver courtesy Lifetime
by Matt Webb Mitovich
Just how frightening is Lifetime's Haunting Sarah, starring 24's Kim Raver as twin sisters (premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET)? Well, let's just say that the review tape spooked my office VCR into submission. (Meaning I get a new one. Score!) Even so, TVGuide.com scared up enough literate Q's to lob at the actress.
TVGuide.com: How did you prepare to play twins? Bone up on episodes of the Patty Duke Show?
Kim Raver: [Laughs] This all happened pretty fast after I finished [Season 4 of] 24. But I did grab a couple of books on twins, and I tried to rely on my relationship with my sister — we're three years apart — with regards to the competitiveness and that sibling connection that you don't share with anyone else. But there is something unique to twins, and that was amazing to read about. And then I took what I could from the script about who these people, Erica and Heather, are. It was definitely wild playing two separate people in the same film; it reminded me of doing two different plays in regional theater and running from one rehearsal space to the other.
TVGuide.com: How are the sisters different? Is one a book-smart librarian and one a floozy?
Raver: [Laughs] Well, seeing as I played them, I wouldn't label them quite like that. Of course people always say "one's good, one's evil," and twins kind of laugh about getting labeled like that. Erica is a professor of mythology, a real jeans-and-T-shirt woman, and Heather is a pediatrician who's into having the big house and money and what people think of her. But what I thought was interesting is, you'd think the woman into mythology would kind of go to the supernatural first [to explain an eerie event], and that's not the case. Heather, the woman of science who really should be against the supernatural and believing in ghosts, goes there first.
TVGuide.com: Just to bring everyone up to speed, Heather's son is dead... but kinda not.
Raver: He's physically dead, but she believes he's coming back to her.
TVGuide.com: And at Halloween time, no less.
Raver: Of course! That makes it so scary. That's the time spirits come back to haunt us.
TVGuide.com: What's your favorite horror film?
Raver: I can't watch gory, Friday the 13th-type stuff. I'm such a wuss. [Laughs] So I would say The Shining, because it's just terrifying and Jack Nicholson is so good in it. What's scary is when stuff is rooted in reality and you go there believing in it, and then it takes a turn and you're like, "Oh, my god!"
TVGuide.com: In the interest of full disclosure, I must tell you that, at times, I have poked fun at Audrey's nonstop bawling on 24.
Raver: Well, good! So when I go online afterward, I won't be like, "Why is this guy who just interviewed me making fun of me?!" No, I agree. When you get a script you try to play it different ways, but....
TVGuide.com: To be fair, she had a lot to cry about, with the creepy hubby dying and all.
TVGuide.com: What can you spill about the upcoming season of 24?
Raver: Not a lot....
TVGuide.com: Were you surprised to get asked back?
Raver: Yeah, because as any kind of love interest for Jack Bauer, you've got a bull's-eye on the middle of your forehead, practically.
TVGuide.com: Literally, at times. Ask Teri.
Raver: Yeah, exactly! But it's amazing working with Kiefer Sutherland — an opportunity like that doesn't come along often. He cares so much about the work and is so good at what he does. And he also knows how to have some good laughs on the set between takes, because it is such intense material.
TVGuide.com: Are you working with any of the newcomers — Jean Smart, Sean Astin, Connie Britton...?
Raver: I'm working with Sean Astin, who is also a riot. He's one of the funniest guys I've met, and just so much fun to work with. And he's also so passionate — he comes in there all fired up, so it's great to have him there. [Pause] I'm being very particular with my words because I know at any minute I'll spill the beans about something! [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: This is part where you tell me that President Palmer will be back.
Raver: I... don't know!
TVGuide.com: Fine, then. You were on Sesame Street when you were 6. Give me some dirt from that.
Raver: It was like paid preschool for me. I knew where they stored Snuffleupagus, and I would watch him come down from the rafters.... Three guys had to operate that thing, which was really cool.
TVGuide.com: Was it emotionally shattering to discover he wasn't real?
Raver: No, everyone asks me that but I had never watched the show, I was just on it. It wasn't like I was attached to the characters and then had to watch them break apart Big Bird. "Oh, there's a person inside!"
TVGuide.com: Does your son know about your Sesame Street past?
Raver: No, but he really digs Elmo and all the characters on there. It's funny, once he was really missing me when I was shooting so my husband, who happened to be flipping around the channels, said, "Well, there's Mommy right there!" It was a Third Watch rerun! My son was like, "Cool!"
TVGuide.com: Tell me about the film you did, Prisoner.
Raver: I just shot it a couple month ago with Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck). I play his mother, actually, in flashbacks. It's a great, great story, with an amazing cast, including Julian and Elias Koteas, who's unbelievable. We're waiting to find out whether it will go to Sundance or not.
TVGuide.com: So, um.... How much 24 are you doing?
Raver: You'll have to wait and see!

12.29.04 - The MSN Entertainment staff wrote about the best and worst television of 2004, and called Third Watch one of the worst dramas.

Recent episodes are much improved, especially in production values, but can you un-jump the shark?
12.22.04 - NBC's cop project, NY-70, based on the two NYC cops made famous by the film "The French Connection" - Eddie Egan and Sonny Grasso, has cast Bobby Cannavale as the pilot's star. Cannavale's character is based on the professional life of cop Sonny Grasso.
12.6.04 - The Palm Beach Post did an article on the Feisty Females of Prime-Time TV. Here is their interview with Molly Price:
What makes your character so tough? "Truthfully, I don't know. But tough connotes a hardness and a negative connotation. To me it's sexist that Yokas is tough. If I had a (male member) she'd be TV's sexiest cop. Or the most recently available bachelor. I just find the description sexist. She's a beautiful, smart woman who is incredibly sweet, innocent and somewhat naive."
Do you identify with her? "I never knew a cop in my life. I grew up in an upper middle-class family with five kids. In a way I can identify with her being surrounded by people all the time and she has a lot of voices in her head. I grew up in a family that told you what to do and how to do it and when to do it. She answers to a lot of people in her life and feels responsible for the people in her life. She's much more tolerant than I am. I wouldn't go for some of Bosco's nonsense."
Dream tough-girl role: "Lucy (from I Love Lucy). I'm actually a comedienne by nature. I really love to be funny and she was the greatest. Maude was amazing and so ahead of her time. (Cagney & Lacey's) Tyne Daly is a national treasure."
Favorite female role models: "My mother. My father died of Lou Gehrig's disease when he was 54. My mom was a schoolteacher and taught special ed. She raised five kids and educated them all into college. She's the most admirable woman I know."
Favorite Yokas moment: "The episode where the kids got shot in school. Faith comes home at the end of the day and just wants to see her kids and to know that they're safe. There's no dialogue. Just me going into the room and sitting on each of their beds. I recently became a mom and at that time I was contemplating getting pregnant and I remember thinking, 'I hope I'm going to be a good mom.' "
Strong characters. vs. timid characters which are more fun: "Both are fun to play, it depends on why the character is being strong or why the character is being timid. Strong is more fulfilling at the end of the day. I'm a method actor and when I have to play a damaged character, that stays with me for a while. But sometimes it's OK to have a good cry."
11.9.04 - The November 7th issue of TV Guide gives Jeers to Third Watch for miscasting Chris Elliott as a serial killer. After so many years of silly gags on Letterman and Everybody Loves Raymond, it was impossible to take the cutup seriously as a psycho. Sadly, the laughter Elliott earned this time was purely unintentional.
11.8.04 - TV Guide Online: Third Watch Star's Cop Drama
by Angel Cohn
When actress Nia Long joined the cast of NBC's Third Watch (Fridays, 9 pm/ET) last year, she was thrilled to play policewoman Sasha Monroe right on New York City's mean streets. In fact, the 34-year-old Brooklyn native looks so convincing, passersby sometimes mistake her make-believe for reality.
"[I love] running around the streets of New York in a cop uniform with a gun," Long happily tells TV Guide Online. "[Recently,] I was on a long break. I had my uniform on, but I was on my cell phone and was wearing flip-flops. My shirt was out, but I had my gun belt on. And this woman, someone hit her car and ran.
"She's like, 'Miss, you are police officer, right?' I'm like, 'No, what are you talking about?' I forgot that I had the uniform on. She's like, 'I need someone to call the police.' I'm like, 'Well, call 911, I'm not a [real] cop.'"
Aside from these occasional moments of confusion, Long enjoys her work atmosphere. "People in New York City love the show. We have so much support and it is really hard work," the petite gal says. "And at Third Watch, those people are my family."
Speaking of kin, Long left acting a few years ago to have her now 3-year-old son. Between Third Watch and her current big-screen role in Alfie, she's definitely accomplished her comeback. "Taking a break and coming back to this is a true testimony to my faith," she sighs, "because not many people walk away and say, 'Bye, I'll be back.'"
Working alongside the dreamy Jude Law helped make the transition back to work easier even if she's just one of his many lovers in the film. "He was just great," she smiles. "None of the girls actually saw each other. It was like I had him for two weeks and then Marisa [Tomei] had him for two weeks. We shared him.
"One day, I left and came back and said to Jude, 'How are you feeling? You've had all these women in a short period of time. Are you OK?' He's like, 'It is like eating too many chocolates.' It was a perfect way to describe it."

10.22.04 - ESPN's new drama series Tilt (premieres January 13) has cast Eddie Cibrian and Chris Bauer. The show is a dramatization of the world of high stakes tournament poker; Cibrian's character is one of the players, while Bauer plays a sheriff.
10.14.04 - AZCentral.com: Stepping In - an interview with Bobby Cannavale about his role in the new movie "Shall We Dance" starring Jennifer Lopez and Richard Gere
QUESTION: How much did you know about ballroom dance when you took the role?
ANSWER: I knew nothing, so I trained for three months. Jennifer (Lopez) was doing a movie in Vancouver, so she got trained up there, and I was in New York, so I got trained with Stanley (Tucci), Richard (Gere) and Lisa Ann Walter. The good thing is none of us knew how to dance, so we all started off on the same foot. That brought us close. Even Richard. The first time I met him he said, "Look man, I'm on the same page with you." I said, "No way, come on, you danced in Chicago." He said, "No, I did a little soft-shoe, that's it." When people are laughing at us in the film it's because we really have those same insecurities.
Q: You've been everywhere: Sex and the City, Will & Grace, Six Feet Under and The Station Agent. Which do you consider your first big break?
A: Career-wise? The Station Agent. Personally as an actor, eight years ago I was in a play with Mark Linn-Baker. I was an understudy and the guy I was studying left to do a movie, so I took over. I went on and killed 'em. It was the best I ever did. After that I got cast right away in the TV show Trinity, which led to Third Watch. And it's funny. Years after I stopped Third Watch, people still come up to me and say, "Oh my God, I cried so hard when you died! I can't handle it!" I tell them, "I died four years ago, I'm OK now, see?"
Q: What do you have coming up next?
A: A musical called Romance & Cigarettes, by John Turturro. I sing and dance in it. It's the best cast ever: Susan Sarandon, Christopher Walken, Kate Winslet, Mandy Moore. I play a guy who thinks he's James Brown and he's the lead singer in a band, and the band is Aida Turturro on drums, Mary-Louise Parker on guitar and Mandy Moore on bass. It takes place in Queens and it's about regular people with troubles. When they can't communicate with each other, they break out into song.
Q: What do you do for fun when you're not working?
A: I love to order songs off of iTunes. Mostly I love to stay in and clean my apartment. Is that weird? I mean, like hard-core cleaning - scrubbing the toilets, mopping the floors, washing the walls, moving furniture. Maybe because I'm really busy jumping back and forth between New York and LA, it makes me feel like I have a routine. But I really get into it. I like to clean my oven and stove so much that it will be all shiny, and then I'll take a picture of it. Or like, I have lot of light in my apartment and I have this great banister, so I'll shine the light on it to show off the staircase. I have this stuff called Mr. Muscle, and I'll spray it on and it gets so shiny, I'm like, "Wow, I've never seen it that shiny!" so I go and take a picture of it. (laughs) That's so lame, I can't believe I'm telling you this!

Joining the cast full-time are Cara Buono and Josh Stewart, while Aidan Quinn and Charles Haid are set for appearances.
Buono is already familiar to the show's fans from a pair of episodes last season as somewhat obnoxious paramedic Grace Foster. The actress has been seen in episodes of "Law and Order" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," as well as the CBS movie "Deep in My Heart."
Stewart is another "CSI" veteran and will play Shawn Finney, a new officer in the 55th Precinct who hails from a family of cops.
Starting in the season's second episode, Quinn will begin a four-part stint as a tough police lieutenant brought in to clean up the Anti-Crime squad.
An Emmy nominee back in 1986 for "An Early Frost," Quinn is becoming a TV movie regular with recent roles in A&E's "Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor," CBS' "Plainsong" and the Lifetime movie "Miracle Run." He'll also be seen in HBO's upcoming "Empire Falls."
Also stopping by for a brief visit is Haid, who will play the head of the NYPD's Internal Affairs department. A two-time Emmy nominee for acting on "Hill Street Blues," Haid has turned his attentions to directing, picking up two more Emmy nominations for work on "NYPD Blue" and "Murder One."

10.13.03 - From TV Guide Online: Ann-Margret on Stalker Watch
NBC's Third Watch needed a sexy, feisty actress of a certain age to play a judge. Whom to cast? Well, who better than the original Kitten with a Whip herself, Ann-Margret? She'll appear in three episodes during November sweeps as Judge Barbara Halsted. But look out! Judge Babs is the target of a deranged stalker.
"They call her Hang 'Em High Halsted. And there is a reason for that!" Ann-Margret laughs. "She has put away drug dealers and every kind of scum on earth for good, with no parole. So there are several hundred people who are not pleased with her performance! She has to watch her back all the time."
To play a stalker's prey was, unfortunately, not a difficult stretch for the 62-year-old two-time Oscar nominee. Years ago, she says, an obsessed fan began approaching her children at work and school. "It got very sticky and frightening," she shares. "I understand why I would be targeted. But when it comes to my family, then I call the FBI."
For the judicial aspect of her role, Ann-Margret didn't draw on life experience. "I have never played a judge before," she says, "so I met with several of them in Los Angeles, and went to see them in their courtrooms to take notes and do research." She also admits she'd never even seen Third Watch before this gig was offered to her. "I have to tell the truth," she chuckles. "The producer sent me a few tapes. I had heard friends talk about it, that it was a gritty drama. And I thought, 'Yes! I want to be part of this.'"
9.12.03 - TV Guide Online reports that major changes are coming in Season Five of NBC's Third Watch (starting Sept. 29 at 9 pm/ET). In last season's finale, firefighter Alex Taylor (Amy Carlson) was killed off in an explosion. Viewers also will learn Noble (guest star Tom Berenger) was gunned down. But who cares about them? How will we ever watch Watch without dimpled hunk Eddie Cibrian, who plays paramedic Jimmy Doherty? (Note from TK: Doherty was actually a firefighter.)
That's right. Word is, Cibrian will exit the show mid-season, possibly to be replaced by a new cutie. But why? Cibrian has signed a talent holding deal with ABC, which spells both big bucks and leading man status. Let's face it: The 30-year-old actor will never be the star of Third Watch, which always has been an ensemble show. And make no mistake, he wants to be a star. (For more, see the previews page, but be warned, there's stuff about what will happen to the character of Jimmy before Cibrian exits.)
8.26.03 - TK spotted the Third Watch crew shooting on 9th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues this morning on her way to work. Dressing room names, which are done by character, included Victim, Ingrid and Chad, as well as the familiar DK and Walsh. Anthony Ruivivar was looking calm and collected wearing a blue FDNY polo shirt and having his morning coffee on this hot and humid New York summer day.
8.12.03 - Film great Ann-Margret will guest-star on three episodes of NBC's Third Watch in November. She'll play a a judge who is being stalked and must be protected by New York's finest.
6.20.03 - MSN Entertainment: 'Third Watch' Actress Price-less - It would be a better world if more people were like NYPD officer Faith Yokas on NBC's Monday night drama "Third Watch." Brave, streetwise and loving, she has one of the world's hardest jobs, and she does it with compassion and grace. Tough enough to wrestle doped-up perpetrators, she's also gentle enough to embrace her children. In many ways, Yokas is the woman many strive to be, juggling the pressures of a job, the rhythms of a marriage and the challenges of motherhood. And she emanates a warmth that makes people want to be her friend....
6.19.03 - If you are sad about the way Third Watch has changed over the last two seasons, then sign the "Save the TW FDNY" petition to help keep "bucket boys" and paramedics on the show. Who knows if it will do anything, but it's worth a try.
5.23.03 - From TV Guide Online: Was the grisly death of Alex Taylor (Amy Carlson) in the season ender the final nail in the coffin for the increasingly MIA firefighters? It would appear so. According to exec producer John Wells, Watch will continue to shift its focus to the men in blue. "What the show was delivering before was too diffuse," he says, "and people couldn't get involved enough." In other words, expect to see even less of red-hot fireman Jimmy (Eddie Cibrian) next season.
5.9.03 - From TV Guide Online: Third Watch's fallen firefighter Amy Carlson, whose body was ripped in two during the show's season finale, is pulling herself together for USA network's upcoming Western series Peacemakers. Carlson will play a young medical student in the drama, which stars Tom Berenger as the town sheriff.
4.29.03 - TV Guide Online: Third Watch Mystery: Why Did Alex Die? - Chances are, if you watched last night's Third Watch season finale, the image of Alex Taylor's severed body lying on the pavement remains etched in your psyche....3.12.03 - Zap2It.com: Berenger to Replace Selleck on 'Third Watch' - Tom Berenger, the Oscar nominated co-star of "Platoon," will make a four-episode guest run on NBC's "Third Watch." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Berenger is stepping into the role vacated by "Magnum P.I." star Tom Selleck, who opted out of "Third Watch" to concentrate on a comedy pilot he's working on for NBC....
