This week's releases involve a bunch of crazy and a lot of hair pulling.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan certainly seems to be going places lately. He went from being the rapidly cooling corpse of Katherine Heigl's love interest on Grey's Anatomy to playing Edward Blake/The Comedian in next year's highly anticipated Watchmen movie. He's also just been cast as a detective in All Good Things, joining Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling in the 1980's mystery story.
Maybe while his detective is investigating the disappearance of Dunst's character, he can solve the following mystery: We know where he's going to be, but where'd he come from? Does it seem like this Jeffrey Dean Morgan guy is suddenly just about everywhere you look? One day, there are no Jeffrey Dean Morgan movies, and then it seems like the next, he's in half the movie trailers you see. Slight exaggeration. But he's got major or starring roles in at least six upcoming movies, and likely more after that. Not bad for a guy who was putting "Unnamed Xindi Reptilian from an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise" on his resumé just a few years ago. Or what about "Undercover Agent #1 on an episode of CSI: Original Flavor" and dozens of other one-shot TV roles spanning the last fifteen or so years? Here he's been, hanging around in background shots all this time (and slithering quietly in lizard costumes) giving the appearance of an "overnight" success.
Another mystery for another day: Why is his former Supernatural co-star signed up for My Bloody Valentine 3-D?
