The Hills Are Alive . . .

The Hill is alive again with Brotherhood series

By Andy Smith

There was a Brotherhood love fest yesterday at the State House rotunda as state officials welcomed cast members of the Showtime drama back to Rhode Island for a second season of filming.

On hand were cast members Jason Isaacs, Jason Clarke, Annabeth Gish and Fionnula Flanagan, plus the show’s writer/creator, Blake Masters.

Brotherhood, which recently won a prestigious Peabody award, stars Isaacs and Clarke as two brothers on opposite sides of the law — Clarke plays Tommy Caffee, an ambitious state legislator, while Isaacs plays Michael Caffee, a criminal who returned to Rhode Island after a mysterious absence.

The show, filmed entirely in the state, debuted last July. Shooting for the second season is set to begin Monday. Masters didn’t want to reveal exactly where the show would be filming, although he said Brotherhood crews would be getting to some different locations this season than they had in the past.

Ten new episodes of Brotherhood are scheduled to debut this fall.

Because Clarke plays a state representative from a mythical Irish neighborhood called The Hill, Brotherhood frequently films at the State House.

I agree with you Marie, not looking favorable for "GOOD" at all, but, who knows...let's keep positive...
Glad to know I had the right idea, I had posted elsewhere they could always start season 2 months after Michael's "Accident"..
Did Blake Masters read my post? LOL

I'm glad we won't have to look at Jason all horribly bruised for half the season..............................

I wonder just how very pissed he will be at Declan?

Pretty much the same thing is repeated again over on the Projo news blog, but this version includes a nice photo of Jason Isaacs and Annabeth Gish ...

Um...is his hairline higher?

Don't get me wrong, he still looks great!

Moira - yep, it is creeping back incrementally. He's still a damn fine specimen though.

Actually, on a second look at the photo, his hairline matches Annabeth Gish's.

Gosh, I hadn't noticed. **cough** ;-)

Talk to me about it - my 20 month old just kept me up half the night because she's teething! Of course this morning she's running around like she's on speed and I am still groggy even after two cups of coffee.

I always assume those celebs have nannies though...maybe not!
