After this Denis Leary still has dog catchers, city planners, parking enforcement, utility workers, and a whole host of other municipal jobs, but he crossed firemen off the list with Rescue Me. And EMT’s earlier, if this project is still in the works.

Now he can do the same with cops in the upcoming half-hour comedy Bronx Warrants, based on the real stories of two cops who were tasked with arresting people with outstanding warrants, though more in the name of cash than justice.

Screen Rant, for reasons unknown, claims that it’s unlikely that Denis Leary will star in the project, and will probably limit himself to executive producer of the show.

The fact that the show is only a half-hour allows me to be a lot more receptive to the concept, as does the fact that the sometimes-grating Leary isn’t slated to star. It’s been long enough since September 11th that I think the world is ready for a show about really, really awful New York cops.

It’s nice to see FX agrees.

Firefighters. And now, EMT's. Leary is completing his Emergency Responders Trilogy.

He took on cops with the brilliant-but-canceled “The Job” and firefighters with “Rescue Me,” but now Denis Leary has his sights on another series about professionals wh drive fast to accident scenes. USA Network has hired Leary to develop and co-write an adaptation of the hit British series, “Sirens.” The comedic drama follows the day-to-day of a group of paramedics. So think”Scrubs” with less terrible jokes and more Lenny Clarke.

It’ unknown right now if there will be a role for Leary on the show but there’s one there if he wants it. USA’s SVP of original programming Bill McGoldrick says, “This is not a vehicle for Denis, and smartly I think,” McGoldrick said. “I don’t think you necessarily want to see him as the lead of a show so soon after Rescue Me, but … after we get the script where we want it there may be more of a supporting thing.”

Perhaps he could play a landlord who the EMT’s have to pretend to be gay around so that they don’t get evicted. (THR)

Don’t Panic: Everyone’s Back For ‘Ice Age 4′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dont-panic-everyones-back-for-ice-age-4/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dont-panic-everyones-back-for-ice-age-4/#comments Wed, 27 Apr 2011 04:12:12 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209122 Ray Romano, Queen Latifah and the whole cast have been unthawed long enough for a quick voice over session.

I know you’ve been worried about whether Ray Romano and Queen Latifah will return for the next Ice Age movie. You can stop refreshing the Screen Junkies home page because… *drum roll*… yes, they will be. Time to take a deep breathe, I have to keep reminding myself.

Fox’s $2 billion dollar grossing Ice Age series is coming out with a fourth installment, Continental Drift, a “high seas” adventure. More returning cast members that have been thawed out include Denis Leary, Josh Peck, Seann William Scott and John Leguizamo.

New warm-blooded additions to the cast include Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Keke Palmer, Drake and Aziz Ansari. Though I admit Ansari will probably be a great voice actor, I will not pay $38 to see another Ice Age movie in 3D. I’d rather just watch”Parks and Recreation” with my eyes closed and pretend his character’s a squirrel or something.

Continental Drift lazily drifts into theaters July 13, 2012. (Hollywood Reporter)

FX has announced their summer line-up and it looks like another summer will pass without my getting a tan.

“Wilfred” premieres June 23rd at 10pm. The story follows a super-depressed Elijah Wood as he befriends his neighbor’s dog, whom for some reason only he can see as a man in a dog suit. Well, we can also see him as a man in a dog suit. Does that mean we’re all super-depressed?

“Louie” comes back for a second season of getting pissed off at things directly after “Wilfred” at 10:30pm.

And “Rescue Me” returns for its final season at 10pm on July 12th. After that, Adam Ferrara will be absent from television until the next time that Denis Leary has a show. (THR)

Photos are leaking from the Spider-Man reboot cam faster than web fluid out of an arachnid’s ass. First there was this promotional photo of Andrew Garfield rocking the suit, looking emotabulous, and now we have on-set photos of actor/comedian Denis Leary looking… well, concerned.

Leary plays Gwen Stacy’s father, Captain George Stacy. Maybe he’s concerned because he knows his daughter is dating a kid who dresses up in a skin-tight leotard to fight mentally ill guys with high tech explosives on the streets on New York. Or maybe he’s concerned because he’s read the comics and knows his daughter will bite the big one soon. Either way, if you’ve always wanted to see Denis Leary look concerned in front of a truck, a helicopter and a fence, today is your lucky day! (/Film)

But no matter what happens, I'll always remember him as renegade Edgar Friendly from the 1993 classic, Demolition Man.

Actor, comedian, and all around angry man Denis Leary is joining the cast of Spider-Man. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leary will play police captain George Stacy, a friend of Spidey who is also the father of the web-slinger’s love interest, Gwen Stacy. For those of you who don’t know, Gwen Stacy will be played by Emma Stone, who is ridiculously hot.

This marks Leary’s first onscreen performance in a theatrical film since 2002′s The Secret Lives of Dentists. But no matter what happens, I’ll always remember him as renegade Edgar Friendly from the 1993 classic, Demolition Man. I still don’t know how to use the three seashells.
