Jon Bernthal to Star in 'American Gigolo' TV Show for Showtime

Punisher and Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal has landed a new role, playing the lead in a new American Gigolo TV show for Showtime. According to Deadline, the new show will be a re-imagining of the classic '80s film, which starred Richard Gere and Lauren Hotton. In the Showtime series, Bernthal will play Julian Kaye — the role originated by Gere — as he tried to rebuild his life after he is released from prison 15 years after being sentenced for a crime he didn't commit.

Actor Jon Bernthal Pays Moving Tribute to Saratogian Josh Chambers at Memorial Service

Back in February, Saratoga Springs lost a true legend in Josh Chambers. A Greenwich native and Skidmore College graduate, Chambers made a name for himself around Saratoga in the 1990s as both a musician—his Skidmore band Throwdown Bouquet was a mainstay at local venues like Caffè Lena—and playwright and director (he staged a number of plays at the Saratoga folk venue, too).

Why Jon Bernthal Should Not Be The MCU’s Wolverine

Before Jon Bernthal took on the role of the biggest anti-hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was once a part of what used to be the biggest show on television. If you’re a fan AMC’s The Walking Dead, then you’ll remember him when he was a part of its glory days. And then things got very complicated for the series, but sadly, his character Shane didn’t stay on it very long. But at least he lasted longer than he did in the comics. I was actually a fan of Shane and it’s mostly because of Jon Bernthal’s fantastic performance. I’ll just say it, but season two is seriously underrated and I’ll give much credit to Shane. I wasn’t too happy when he died, because I think his character had more to offer in future seasons.

Did Jon Bernthal Just Tease Joining Netflix's Hulk Hogan Movie?

Jon Bernthal has wrestling fans wondering if he'll play a part in the upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic. On May 30, the 44-year-old actor, known for his roles in The Walking Dead and The Punisher, shared a vintage photograph of the WWE and WCW icon on his Instagram.

Jon Bernthal Starring in HBO Limited Series “We Own This City”

One would think that any police-related shows or movies at this time would be subject to a lot of bad press simply because of what’s been happening in the nation for a while, but that’s not stopping Jon Bernthal and his costars from starring in We Own This City on HBO as they detail the rise and subsequent fall of Baltimore’s Gun Trace Task Force. For anyone that’s not up on what happened during the course of this tale, it might be wise to brush up a bit before sitting down to watch this series. The furious days that gave rise to the book that inspired this project are likely going to be given a great amount of detail since Bernthal has made a huge name for himself in recent years when it’s come to his acting, and drama has been one of his best skills alongside his ability to deliver quality action.

Jon Bernthal, Jamie Hector & Josh Charles Cast In ‘We Own This City’ From The Creators Of ‘The Wire’

Honestly, how many times have you talked with someone about the best TV shows of all time, and “The Wire” gets mentioned? Yes, the show is incredible, but it’s almost a cliche at this point to put it up there with the “BeSt Tv EvEr.” That said, it doesn’t matter who’s in the cast and what the story is about, but if you tell me that the team behind “The Wire,” David Simon, Ed Burns, and George Pelecanos are reteaming for a new show, I’m there. However, with the upcoming “We Own This City,” those gentlemen also have the beginnings of a great cast to work with, as well.
