Edward Herrmann in “The Christmas Pageant”

Edward Herrmann (Richard Gilmore on Gilmore Girls) stars in the upcoming Holiday 2011 film, The Christmas Pageant, a tv movie which will premiere on the Hallmark Channel.

Summary: Vera Parks (Gilbert), an overly intense and demanding Broadway director gets fired from yet another job, leaving her no choice but to take a gig directing a small town Christmas pageant in upstate New York. Stunned at how basic the production is, Vera attempts to back out, but is convinced by some of the locals to give their town a chance. To her surprise, the warmth and charm of the small town grows on Vera and she even enjoys the experience of directing the pageant. When Vera discovers her former fiancé Jack (Mailhouse) recommended her for the job, she is outraged. But over time Vera appreciates the gesture, as she grows close to both Jack and his young daughter (Wynn). Will love stay in the wings this time around? Or is this Vera’s eleven o’clock number after all?

The film stars Melissa Gilbert, Robert Mailhouse and Lennon Wynn alongside Edward Herrmann [Read more…]

“Hold At All Costs” Narrated by Edward Herrman

Edward was chosen as narrator, being known in from his work narrating the audio CD version of David Halberstam’s Korean War book, The Coldest Winter.

In June, 1953, during the last weeks of the Korean War, a battle raged between American soldiers and Chinese Communists for possession of a company-sized piece of ground known as Outpost Harry.

In the course of eight days, eight or ten companies from the 15th Infantry, 3rd Division and 5th Infantry Regiment obeyed their orders to hold Harry “at all costs.” They did so, but at a terrible price.

This is the story of forgotten warriors, in a forgotten battle, of a forgotten war.

  • Who is Wendy Scott Carter… that is the question!!

Edward Herrmann Filming “For Robbing the Dead”

The CW Television Network Upfront

Edward Herrmann (Richard Gilmore on Gilmore Girls) is currently filming a new movie, For Robbing the Dead.

Edward stars as Governor Dawson in a story about ‘compassion toward those who may seem the least deserving of Christian love’

It follows the story of Henry Heath, a law officer in 1862 Salt Lake City. Heath finds himself responsible for the well-being of a prisoner whom he despises – an impoverished French immigrant named Jean Baptiste who is convicted of robbing the graves of the recently deceased. Baptiste is exiled to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. With no one willing to look after this man, Henry Heath becomes Baptiste’s sole defense against the hostile isolation of Antelope Island and the contempt of an entire community. Through his somewhat reluctant service, Heath’s heart softens and his own sorrows find relief.

Edward also has 3 other films which will be released this year, A Root Beer Christmas, Born To Be A Star, and Son of Mourning.
