Vincent D'Onofrio joins 'The Judge'


Vincent D’Onofrio has signed on to play the brother of Robert Downey Jr’s character in The Judge, the Warner Bros dramedy that also stars Robert Duvall. Bill Dubuque was pegged to pen a new draft of the Nick Schenk script, about a big-city lawyer (Downey) who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father (Duvall), the town‘s judge, is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before. David Dobkin is directing, and Downey and Susan Downey are producing with Dobkin. D’Onofrio just completed the off-Broadway show Clive opposite Ethan Hawke and Zoe Kazan. On the big screen, he just wrapped the action comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles and next appears in the indie Broken Horses with Anton Yelchin and Thomas Jane. D’Onofrio is repped by UTA and the Collective.

'The story centers on a successful lawyer (Robert Downey Jr.) who returns to his hometown and learns that his father (Robert Duvall), the town's judge, is accused of murdering his mother. The attorney sets out to find the truth, while reconnecting with his estranged dad, who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease.'

Rib City Grill gets its own reality show...'Smoked'


A couple of years back, Rib City Grill Utah filmed a pilot episode for a reality show that fans voted on in order to win a slot for viewing.  They won by popular vote, however it seemed to have fizzled and nothing else was heard.  This appears to be another attempt via a different venue.  The video did not have an embed feature so you will have to click on the link above to view.  Rib City's video is the one on the right and gives you a taste of what the series has to offer.  It looks as if viewing is online only and that new shows will be posted each week.
