The Little Things
Premiering Sunday, December 26 on HBO GO
Starring Academy Award winners Denzel Washington (Training Day, Glory, The Equalizer movies), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), The Little Things follows Washington as Kern County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe “Deke” Deacon on what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment in Los Angeles. His mundane duty suddenly takes a more sinister twist as he becomes embroiled in the hunt for a serial killer who is terrorising the women in the city. Teaming up with Malek, who plays local sergeant Jim Baxter from the Homicide Department, they combine forces to track down the killer. However, unbeknownst to Baxter, their investigation dredges up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering secrets that could threaten more than this case.
The main cast also includes Natalie Morales (Battle of the Sexes), Terry Kinney (Mile 22, TV’s Billions), Chris Bauer (Sully, TV’s The Deuce), Joris Jarsky (TV’s Bad Blood), Isabel Arraiza (TV’s Pearson) and Michael Hyatt (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend).
Premiering Wednesday, December 30 on HBO GO
Cry Macho stars Oscar-winning veteran actor, director and producer Clint Eastwood (The Mule, Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, American Sniper, Letters from Iwo Jima) as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who has endured the kind of losses that would take most men down. Once a circuit star with a wife and family, the hardened cowboy with the well-earned rough-hewn exterior has picked himself up time and again, no matter what knocked him off his actual or proverbial horse.
At the end of the day, life’s hard knocks have made Mike even more pragmatic and, despite a stubborn streak, when given a job to do, like it or not he sets out to do it…albeit in his own way. However, when he takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico, Mike is forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas. As the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, the world-weary horseman finds unforeseen connections and his own sense of redemption.
With Eduardo Minett as the young boy, Rafo, in his feature film debut, Cry Macho also stars Natalia Traven (Collateral Damage, TV’s Soulmates) as Marta, with Dwight Yoakam (Logan Lucky, Sling Blade) as Mike’s former employer, Howard Polk. The cast also includes Fernanda Urrejola (Blue Miracle, Narcos: Mexico) as Leta and Horacio Garcia-Rojas (Narcos: Mexico, TV’s La querida del Centauro) as Aurelio.
