News update, articles, images from this SHOWTIME Original Series
The show stars Jason Isaacs (“The Patriot,” “Harry Potter” films) and Jason Clarke (“Rabbit Proof Fence”) as Michael and Tommy Caffee, two brothers on opposite sides of the law.
It’s about two brothers, one a rising local politician and the other a local crime boss who mysteriously returns after years in exile/on the run. Guess which one I play! The Providence accent’s a hoot, I loved walking around in character – minus the guns of course - although when Emma and Lily came to stay they both told me to stop talking like a @#%$ idiot. Or something like that.....
......Jason's e-mail to Kay, web-mistress of the Jason's FanZone in November 2004.
"It was deliciously enjoyable to get my mouth around the very peculiar Providence accent," he claims. "For a British actor, it's a real godsend having a different voice like that. We're fascists about voices in England. As soon as somebody opens their mouth, everyone can tell not only where they come from and what kind of education they have, but what they aspire to do in life. For this part, once you start speaking like the character, you start thinking like him."

(Brotherhood)..Shooting for the full season, 11 more episodes, began July 6 and crews were back at the Statehouse this week lensing more
scenes.Filming will be done completely in Rhode Island, not three to five days a season here and the rest in Los Angeles, the way NBC series
Providence was done. Production is scheduled to continue through Nov. 8 and the series will premiere at the end of January.Much of the filming will be
done on a soundstage in East Providence, Feinberg said. Production offices are already operating there."It's going to be employing 160 people full-time,
good wages, great wages, and word of mouth is already spreading," Feinberg said, adding that 90 percent of the crew are Rhode Islanders making good
wages and benefits.
