At a cinema near you in summer 2014, Milo (Gilmore’s Jess Mariano) stars alongside Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and two of my favourite comedy actors, Jason Lee and Alan Tudyk. Comic actors playing bad dudes can be so cool, when they focus all that manic energy down into something creepy, like Robin Williams in One Hour Photo. You can tell Jason Lee’s bad because he’s borrowed Coppola’s beard:
Milo stars as Ethan Tell, a criminal who scores $1 million in a heist. However, stealing the money was the easy part. All bothering him for a share are his partner, his ex-wife, his parole officer and two corrupt detectives.
Tell is written by Timothy Williams, who was once on Doogie Howser. It’s directed by J.M.R. Luna, who was an electrician on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and must have done a damn fine job.
