D'Onofrio Ready to Re-up

Entertainment News, 5.8.08
by Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

The Hollywood Exclusive: D'onofrio Ready To Re-Up For 'L&O: CI' -- If He Can/'Supernanny' Jo Frost on a Mission To Support New Dads

Criminal Intent" contract is coming up for renewal, but producer Dick Wolf need have no concern that the actor will be leaving his role as the series' Det. Robert Goren.

"I have no plans to go anywhere," says the actor whose "Criminal Intent" role was made more manageable in 2004 -- after he was hospitalized with exhaustion.

"I'm working 13-hour days," he says, "a breeze compared to the 15-16 hours a day I used to put in."

He only hopes there's a show to return to.

This is "Criminal Intent's" seventh season, "which is a long run for a dramatic series," the actor points out. "This year is kind of funky, because of the recent writers' strike and the threatening actors' strike," he says. more

Article & Video Interview at Nashville FF

Nashville Edge, 4.24.08
by Kendall Mitchell

Actor Turned Filmmaker Panel

Four notable actors turned filmmakers gathered at the Nashville Film Festival to share their experiences and offer their best advice on working in the film industry in front of the camera and behind it.

-excerpted-
Vincent D’Onofrio started the conversation that many directors don’t know how to relate or deal with actors and that actors turned directors can be the most ideal. They can see things from an actors perspective, nurture their cast, and read each individual actor and how they prefer to work. D’Onofrio added that actors should be treated delicately while on set, like glass, because if you break an actor before or during their performance, that performance is dead.

Nashville Film Festival Round-Up, 4.30.08

The Actors Turned Filmmaker Panel was quite entertaining with Michelle Paradise, Joey Lauren Adams, Robby Benson and Vincent D’Onofrio each discussing there various adventures behind the camera. It was moderated by big time casting director Laray Mayfield. I went to the panel with Lee as she and Michelle Paradise worked on the short film The Ten Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide which actually became the basis for the cable show Exes & Ohs. Pretty cool stuff! So, a great panel overall, some fun topics and pitfalls about jumping behind the camera. Afterward I was able to do a little celeb stalking.
