The premiere of The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, the new Lifetime mini-series, will be on April 5. The buzz is that it is really good. I certainly hope so.

Jonathan Banks on Lizzie Borden and Better Call Saul

Jonathan Banks is known to us from Breaking Bad. Intense and wry at the same time, Banks’ acting style is understated. He perfectly envelopes a character and makes us want to see him more.
