'Walking With Herb' Review: Edward James Olmos Lifts Faith-based, Golf-centric Comedy Drama

Since we’ve already had faith-based features involving football (“Woodlawn,” “Facing the Giants”), baseball (“Where Hope Grows”), basketball (“Slamma Jamma”), boxing (“Carman: The Champion”), competitive skateboarding (“Hardflip”) and even mixed martial arts (“The Fight Within”), it was doubtless inevitable that someone would produce a movie where the Lord works in mysterious ways on the golf course. Robert Redford’s “The Legend of Bagger Vance” (2000) didn’t quite qualify, given the nondenominational nature of its spirituality. On the other hand, “Walking With Herb” is explicitly and unashamedly upfront about depicting how an agent of God, or someone of an even higher pay grade, might directly intervene in providing a shot at redemption — and no handicap at all — for a golfer far from the fairway.

Battlestar Galactica: Edward James Olmos Reveals Hilarious Item Written Into His Contract

Character actor Edward James Olmos has had tremendous success through his career with extended stints on shows like Miami Vice and an appearance in Blade Runner that has made him a favorite of cult sci-fi fans. Olmos opened up about most of his career in a new interview, including an extensive answer about his time on the 2003 reboot of Battlestar Galactica as William Adama. The actor was asked by The AV Club what made him sign on for the series having previously turned down a role in Star Trek and having "had (his) fill of science fiction." He had a thoughtful answer about that but then revealed a hilarious tidbit about what he wanted to see in the series, even having it built into his contract.

Edward James Olmos – Talent for the Game – Film Review

I like sports movies. There is usually drama, humor, effort, and twists of fate. In “Talent for the Game” we see baseball lover Edward James Olmos playing Virgil Sweet, a big league wanna-be catcher, but relegated to baseball scout. We see him checking out talented young players with potential. He has an eye for potential with a big helping of reality. As he meets pitchers and has them pitch to him he recognizes skills, needed development, and weaknesses. In the changing winds of pro ball, Virgil and his skills may be swept away in waves of data and statistics. He scouts for the California Angels.

Edward James Olmos in Religious Drama 'Walking with Herb' Trailer

"No one thing can force you back to the faith you once had." An official trailer has debuted for a faith-based religious propaganda film titled Walking with Herb. We usually don't write about these kind of films, but this is so hilarious it's worth a lookjust to laugh at. Sixty-five-year-old Joe Amable-Amo is struggling with his faith after tragedy hits. Joe is working at his desk when he receives a message from God on his computer (yes, really) that tells him he has been chosen to deliver an inspirational message to the world - by playing golf. God tells Joe he is going to play in a tournament, and if his faith is strong enough, he will win. As Joe embarks on a spiritual journey along with God's personal messenger and motorcyclist, Herb, Joe learns to make a difference. Truly inspirational storytelling right there. Starring Edward James Olmos as Joe, with George Lopez playing Herb, and Kathleen Quinlan, Jessica Medoff, Johnathan McClain, and Billy Boyd. It couldn't be more goddamn cliche than a bank manager realizing golf is "God's message". Have fun.
