Dana gets dangerous

It's the stakes -- not just the heels -- that are high for crime-solving coroner Megan Hunt when ABC's Body of Proof begins its third season (Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 9 p.m., ABC and Citytv). The emphasis is on more action as Megan is teamed with a new detective (Mark Valley) with connections to her past. "It's been fun," series star Dana Delany said recently. "It's a little silly in high heels, I have to admit. I feel like I should be wearing a catsuit or something. ... I've even had a gun in my hand a couple of times, which medical examiners don't normally do."

Blockheads rejoice

Crime writer Lawrence Block has never had much luck in Hollywood. In the translation of his Matt Scudder book 8 Million Ways to Die (1986), the action was moved from Scudder's stomping ground in New York to (ugh) Los Angeles. Worse was Burglar (1987), in which Block's literate thief/sleuth Bernie Rhodenbarr was adjusted to accommodate star Whoopi Goldberg. The good news is the Scudder book A Walk Among the Tombstones is in production with Liam Neeson attached to play the alcoholic, tithing private eye and Scott Frank (who made the terrific and underrated shot-in-Winnipeg movie The Lookout) will write and direct.

War is hell

Hannah Moscovitch, one of the most celebrated under-35 playwrights in this country, opens her latest social drama, This is War, at Prairie Theatre Exchange next week. After her first full-length play ,East of Berlin (WJT in 2009), earned her a Governor General's Award nomination, the prolific Toronto-based Moscovitch received eight commissions from North American theatres. One of them, This is War, is a rare play that looks at Canada on the battlefield, in this case Afghanistan, and the reality of our soldiers being in the crosshairs.
