TNT’s summer gets under way on Monday, June 8, with the season-four premiere of Mary McDonnell-fronted drama “Major Crimes” and the season-two bow of “Murder in the First” — two shows that were also paired on Monday a year ago. “Murder,” from Steven Bochco and starring Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson, will again focus on a single murder investigation throughout the course of the season.

It is with my deepest pride I’m making this post today. Thanks to the complicity of my friend Stef I was able to grab the copy of the one magazine that features Mary and it’s an old TV Guide copy from 2009 on Battlestar Galactica which I bought and my friend scanned for us. So run to the gallery and enjoy HQ scans of it!

Since Mary is on a pause after the extraordinary weeks in theatre, I’ve gone far with capping her career projects and today I conclude the “Crime of Fashion” series with DVD Screencaptures from Hostile Makeover where she reprised her role of Rose Smithsonian, the protagonist’s mother, and this time she was a lot more present in the movie and so much amazing in it. Enjoy the caps in gallery!

Donnie Darko is a truly weird movie. The first time I saw it I totally disliked (but could have been cause I was only 14 and the rabbit crapped me out!) but re-watching it recently it got a great potential of a good horror movie. No need to say Mary was of course exceptional and this playing a little snob-worried mom it was great to me.
I added to the gallery HD screencaptures from director’s cut bluray edition of the movie and while I attempt to find a complete interview segment, you can enjoy a youtube video with a small glimpse of it.

A troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a large bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after narrowly escaping a bizarre accident.
