More Shield

No book review this week because I haven't finished any recently. I'm currently reading Marcus Sakey's The Blade Itself, and I'm digging it so far.

At the risk of being all Shield all the time, I thought I'd point to FX's ongoing series of one-on-one interviews with the cast of The Shield. They're all great and the pairings are interesting. You can really tell how much the actors liked working with each other. Most of them show one actor in awe of another actor and heaping praise on something they've done. The most recent one of Jay Karnes (Dutch Wagenbach) and David Marciano (Billings) really shows the comedic chemistry between the two of them. I realized in my recaps that I haven't mentioned the Billings character at all. He first appeared in season four and becomes more prominent in the subsequent seasons. Billings is even captain of The Barn during the awesome run of season five. I really like the character and how Marciano plays him. I'll try to keep in mind some of the Billings antics when I do my recap of season six.
