michelle-forbes-brent-sexton-325.jpgMireille Enos was busy this week, giving an extensive interview to the Los Angeles Times and sitting down with Jimmy Fallon on his talk show. Meanwhile, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram highlights Michelle Forbes’ performance as one of the best of this TV season and Gold Derby talks Emmy nominations for Billy Campbell and Brent Sexton. Read on for more:

• The Los Angeles Times interviews Mireille Enos, who talks about the roles she tends to play: “I’m positive and I smile a lot, and I’m kind of a banana, but serious work just seems to find me, so I’m not going to argue with it.”

Mireille Enos appears on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and talks about shooting in all that rain: “The only thing that the makeup artist has to really watch when I’m in the rain is that I turn purple when I get cold.”

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram spotlights Michelle Forbes, who’s “giving one of the best performances of the current TV season.”

Gold Derby speculates that Billy Campbell and Brent Sexton (praised for “really turning in great performances”) are contenders for a best supporting actor Emmy nomination.

CNN chats with Brandon Jay McLaren (Bennett Ahmed), who reveals, “When I read the 13th episode I was shocked.”

The Hollywood Reporter lists The Killing at No. 4 on its power rankings for the week ended May 8, complimenting the drama for “that scene with the kite, where [Stan’s] boys want to know what really happened to Rosie? Painful and poignant.”

New York‘s examination of AMC calls The Killing a “police procedural, with added matte sheen, ponderous pauses, realistic yet subtly stylized cinematography, and the distinct feeling of a luxury product. In other words, it’s an AMC show.”

The Orlando Sentinel touts The Killing as “simply the best new drama this season.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer says, “AMC has another compelling winner with this murky murder mystery based on a Danish television series.”

• About The Killing, Metroblogging advises, “If you’re not watching, you should start, now.” Meanwhile, indieWIRE has some speculation on the identity of the killer.

Entertainment Weekly has a career recommendation for Elizabeth Mitchell: “In my ideal world, Mitchell could get a role on the second season of AMC’s The Killing or The Walking Dead.”

Variety writes about the differences between cable and broadcast TV and cites The Killing, which is “thriving,” while its network predecessor, ABC’s Twin Peaks, “flamed brightly before fizzling badly in its second season.” (No Link)

The Seattle Times compares the real Seattle to the one on The Killing, which “makes our little corner of the country look a lot cooler and edgier than it actually is.”

• The New York Times reports that Brent Sexton will participate in a reading of Alan Alda’s new play about Marie Curie at the World Science Festival gala on June 1 in New York City.

Video Gaming Pros reviews “inFamous 2” and praises Eric Ladin — who voiced and acted the part of the game’s protagonist — for doing “an awesome job.”
