For his directorial debut Nick Tomnay has done something remarkable: He manages to breathe new life into the dark comedy thriller subgenre of cinema with his efforts in the upcoming film The Perfect Host, which stars David Hyde Pierce as Warwick Wilson, the demented sociopath who loves nothing more in life but to host the perfect dinner party.
In writer/director Nick Tomnay’s feature film debut The Perfect Host, actor David Hyde Pierce portrays Warwick Wilson, a consummate perfectionist who’s preparing for a lavish dinner party that ends up being crashed by a wounded bank robber (Clayne Crawford) on the run.

With "True Blood" chugging along quite nicely toward the end of its Season Three run, it seems Alan Ball has enough time on his hands to start prepping his next series for HBO, "All Signs of Death", which is based on the Charlie Huston crime noir novel The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death. Word recently came down as to whom Ball has cast to appear in the pilot, and things are looking quite good indeed.
