Film and television star Dennis Quaid hit Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night as the actor is hoping to drum up some buzz for his CBS show Vegas as well as his upcoming limited release At Any Price. Ratings for the former are pretty terrible and the network has not decided what it is going to do with their period drama going forward. Schedule jostling is not exactly a good thing for the series’ older audience (last week’s episode actually aired on Saturday because of the late breaking news concerning the Boston Marathon Bomber.) Many are expecting Vegas to be cancelled. Nonetheless, Quaid is out there doing his best to ensure that does not happen, or at the very least, that people might still like him after experimenting with a small screen role. Continue Reading
The first official trailer has hit the web for the Ramin Bahrani-directed family drama At Any Price starring Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid. Set against the backdrop of a farming community, this particular project centers on a family who is tested when their business becomes under fire by an unexpected investigation. It is also about a father-son relationship which is tested when Zac Efron’s character continues to pursue his passion for race car driving at all costs. Heather Graham is in this one as well although it remains to be seen what her exact role will be in all this judging from the first spot alone.
Just the other day, we saw the first trailer for Zac Efron’s The Paperboy from director Lee Daniels, but today we are hearing that his other ‘in-the-can’ project At Any Price is ready to hit theaters as well after finding a distributor in Sony Pictures Classics. The project also stars Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham who are taking direction from Ramin Bahrani.
For those who have not heard, the film is set in the competitive world of modern agriculture and centers around Dennis Quaid’s Henry Whipple who wants his son (Efron) to help expand his family’s farming empire. Naturally, he has other plans as he has his heart set on becoming a race car driver. Things get interesting when a high-stakes investigation into their business unfolds and the pair are pushed into an unexpected situation that threatens the family’s livelihood. Continue Reading
There is a new trailer out for The Words tonight that is much more abbreviated than the previous one.

Bradley Cooper has been hard at work upping his street cred in the drama department ever since he broke out in 2009′s The Hangover.

Dennis Quaid looks to have finally found a small screen series that he has been looking for, and it is a whopper of a project. According to Vulture, the Footloose actor is currently in negotiations to co-star alongside Michael Chiklis in a CBS pilot called Ralph Lamb. The series is about the true story of 1960′s Las Vegas sheriff (Quaid) and his gangster nemesis (Chiklis).
What’s more is that there is a high profile behind-the-scenes tandem working on this prospective drama. Nicholas Pileggi is the series creator. This is the guy who wrote Good Fellas and Casino. Also, the director for the pilot episode is pretty decent as well. James Mangold who is best known for directing Walk the Line and Cop Land has been tapped for the job. He most recently directed an episode of the soon-to-air CBS drama NYC 22.
A whole lot of eyes will be pegged to this project going forward, so stay tuned for more on Ralph Lamb in the months to come.
Deadline has the story today that Jennifer Aniston is currently in talks to pair up with Dennis Quaid for her next movie. The film is called Switch which is being adapted from a novel by Elmore Leonard, and it might be worth remembering if only for the fact that Modern Family’s Ty Burrell is already on board the project.
Should the duo jump aboard, they will be playing husband and wife. Aniston would be given the role of Mickey Dawson who is kidnapped and held for ransom while Quaid’s character would be that of a crooked real estate developer who simply sees this as an opportunity to be rid of his wife. Naturally, the story progresses to the point where Mickey Dawson teams with her kidnappers to get revenge on her husband and take all of his money.
Behold, a trailer for a movie that vies for the title of Dennis Quaid’s creepiest film ever. The movie is called Beneath the Darkness, and hey, that girl from Friday Night Lights is in it. This one has a limited release beginning this Friday, January 6. Continue Reading
