Seems not so long ago that then-Dallas Mayor Laura Miller and Dallas Film Commission director Janis Burklund were staging a press conference in the Dallas City Hall Flag Room begging the producers of the (ill-fated) big-screen Dallas to “Shoot JR Here.” They brought with them T-shirts and bumper stickers, and despite the gimmicks they were serious and not a little desperate to re-energize local film and TV production, which had grown fallow in the absence of state tax incentives that could lure cameras and crews to Dallas.
Some four years later, Burklund cannot recall Dallas ever having been this loaded with productions. Of course, FOX’s Code 58 is here till at least July, and, as we mentioned two weeks ago, Jerry Bruckheimer is set to shoot an NBC pilot, Chase, in March. So far, only Desperate Housewives’ Jesse Metcalfe has been cast as a U.S. Marshal on the lookout for fugitives in the American Southwest.
We’ve been updating the gallery with older pictures. These are just captures from Jesse’s appearance on the show LA Ink back in 2007, where he got his tattoo. I love it!
Jesse Metcalfe has landed a role in NBC’s drama pilot Chase, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced project centres on a high-priority fugitive apprehension team in South Texas. Former Desperate Housewives star Metcalfe has apparently been tapped to play a preppy Marshal from D.C.
