Do We Unnerve You: The Undoing Podcast (“The Missing” with special guest, Michael Devine)
Welcome to Do We Unnerve You: The Undoing Podcast! Each week, Caroline and Mike will be breaking down and discussing HBO’s newest miniseries, The Undoing, the sexy mystery thriller starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.
In this week’s episode, Caroline and Mike discuss the second episode of The Undoing, “The Missing.” Lots of great discussion tonight, not only about the mystery within the show itself but also, how the series is handling classism and the vibe of the series during a pandemic. The Undoing is prompting a lot of great discussion and telling an engrossing story.
Afterwards, Caroline and Mike interview the inimitable Michael Devine, who plays Detective Paul O’Rourke in the series. Beyond having a great chat about his time filming the series, we talk with Michael about his road to acting (which includes a full career as an NYPD Detective), acting with legends like Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland, his 2011 album, Songs of Valor and Hope, and so much more!
Our interview with Michael begins at time marker: 1:13.10.
With a long-standing career behind him, actor Michael Devine can also be seen playing law enforcement roles in other notable films and television shows such as: The Wolf of Wall Street, Law & Order, Blue Bloods, Mozart in the Jungle, American Odyssey, Orange Is the New Black, Big Time Adolescence, The Post, and Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us (a series that brings awareness to the root of the Black Lives Matter movement). Most notably though, Michael played the series regular role of ‘James Tech Padgett’ in CBS’ Limitless.
While growing up in Clifton, New Jersey, Michael found an alternative passion for music and acting – for which he has had 16 years of success in the industry. In 2011, his fondness for music led him to release an album entitled Songs of Valor and Hope, which landed at #1 in four different categories on Amazon Music. With Irish influences and tones similar to that of Josh Groban, the album consists of a collection of cover songs such as “Ave Maria,” “Hallelujah,” “Amazing Grace” and many more treasured classics. Michael has had the honor of performing his music at Madison Square Garden, Rainbow Room and Lincoln Center – and served as the NYPD’s National Anthem soloist. Aside from singing, he also plays the bagpipes. He is currently working on creating a new album, and hopes to one day be cast in a Broadway production.
