On behalf of DAVID STRATHAIRN ONLINE I’d like to wish David a very happy birthday. He turns a very vital 73 today and it’s my sincere hope he is having a great time with family and friends.
The trailer has been released for David’s film WALKAWAY JOE. It co-stars The Walking Dead‘s Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Looks like it’s going to be good and that David is getting special mention, all good.
WALKAWAY JOE Trailer: Keep Your Eye on David Strathairn
David Strathairn instantly makes anything in which he appears more interesting, merely by his always dramatic presence.
His appears in Walkaway Joe, about halfway through a new trailer, and elevates what looks like a somewhat rudimentary father/son drama. Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the father, and he’s certainly a combustible personality who can create dramatic sparks, while Julian Feder essays the glum, cheerless son. After they go their separate ways, though, things ignite when David Strathairn appears on the scene, instantly compelling my closer attention.
The official synopsis describes the film as “the story of an unlikely friendship between a young boy searching for his father in pool halls across the country, and a wandering loner hiding from his past. In each other they experience the power of a second chance, and a shot at redemption.”
So David Strathairn as a “wandering loner”? Yes, please.
Walkaway Joe is set for release on May 8, 2020, On Demand and Digital, as well as — hm, let me squint to read this — “theaters,” whatever those might be. While we build up anticipation, chalk up your pool cues and enjoy the trailer below.
On behalf of DAVID STRATHAIRN ONLINE, I’d like to take this time to wish David the happiest of birthdays. He turns a spry 71 today and it is my sincerest wish that he has the best day. Thank you David for all the work you’ve given us, and for all the work you’ll be giving us in the future.
Here is more information on David’s show INTERROGATION which premieres on CBS All Access on February 6, 2020.
CBS ALL ACCESS’ TRUE-CRIME SERIES “INTERROGATION” TO PREMIERE THURSDAY, FEB. 6
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Dec. 12, 2019 – CBS All Access today announced that its new original true-crime series, INTERROGATION, will be available to binge beginning Thursday, Feb. 6. The streaming service also released the series’ teaser art. With all episodes dropping at once, viewers will see the day of the crime and then follow the evidence like a cold case detective, abandon the linear narrative and determine their own investigative path by watching the episodes leading up to the finale in any order.
Starring Peter Sarsgaard (“The Looming Tower”), Kyle Gallner (“Outsiders”), David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck”), and special guest star Vincent D’Onofrio (“The Godfather of Harlem”), INTERROGATION is based on a case that spans more than 20 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. After being sentenced to life in prison, he continued to fight to prove his innocence. Each episode is structured around interrogations informed by real police case files. Sarsgaard plays David Russell, the lead detective on the case; Gallner plays the accused, Eric Fisher; Strathairn plays Eric’s father, Henry Fisher; and D’Onofrio plays Ian Lynch, an Internal Affairs officer who ends up becoming Eric Fisher’s biggest ally.
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios. Co-creators Anders Weidemann (“30 Degrees in February”) and John Mankiewicz (“House of Cards,” “Bosch”) serve as executive producers alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin (“Bosch”) and Melissa Aouate (“Hit the Road”). Ernest Dickerson (“The Godfather of Harlem”) directs six out of the series’ 10 episodes and also serves as executive producer. Patrick Cady (“Rectify”) also directs.
INTERROGATION joins CBS All Access’ growing slate of original series that currently includes THE GOOD FIGHT, NO ACTIVITY, TELL ME A STORY, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, WHY WOMEN KILL and the forthcoming limited event series THE STAND as well as THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, with additional series to be announced.

CBS All Access has released the first poster from David’s series INTERROGATION and his character’s name is finally revealed. David will play the part of Henry Russell, the father of the lead character played by Peter Sarsgaard. Funny enough, Sarsgaard’s character’s name is, wait for it ….. David Russell. David’s full name is David Russell Strathairn, and this isn’t the first time David has played someone with Russell in their character name. There was SIMON BIRCH where David played Reverend Russell, then BEYOND THE CALL where he played the part of Russell Cates, and finally HOME FROM THE HOLIDAYS where he played Russell Terziak. There seems to be a pattern forming. I’m wondering if the irony has hit David? Likely. Here’s the information on the series and the poster. Oh premiere date is February 6, 2020.

CBS All Access is bulking up its originals with Interrogation, a true-crime series starring Peter Sarsgaard, Kyle Gallner, and David Strathairn, with guest star Vincent D’Onofrio.
Set to premiere Thursday, February 6 on the streaming platform, Interrogation will drop all of its episodes for viewers’ bingeing pleasure.

Along with the premiere date, a teaser poster has been revealed as well, featuring an interrogation scene from a birds-eye perspective. Based on a real case that spanned over 20 years, the show focuses on a man convicted of killing his mother.
After receiving a life sentence in prison, this man continued the fight to prove his innocence in the matter. Every episode itself is structured around interrogations that are inspired by real police case files.
Sarsgaard portrays lead detective David Russell and Gallner plays the accused criminal, Eric Fisher. Strathairn takes on the role of Eric’s father, Henry, and D’Onofrio guest star as Ian Lynch, an Internal Affairs officer who supports Eric’s fight to prove his innocence.
