TV Review: ‘Agent X’

TV Review: ‘Agent X’
Possessing some of the flavor of “National Treasure,” “Agent X” takes the amusing step of investing the Vice President’s office with secret constitutional powers, all for the purpose of concocting a Yankee version of James Bond. And wonder of wonders, it mostly works, at least initially, combining a sense of playfulness with bountiful action and, less successfully, a sweeping conspiracy. Al Gore once joked about the VP being addressed as “Your Adequacy,” but this TNT drama – which feels like a throwback to around the time Gore was sworn in – is actually closer to “Your Pretty Goodness.”

Sharon Stone plays Vice President Natalie Maccabee, who shortly after being ushered to her new residence discovers a hidden passage. “You just beat Lyndon Johnson’s record,” she’s told by her steward, Malcolm Millar (Gerald McRaney), who actually presides over the “Agent X” program, which authorizes the VP to tackle threats foreign and domestic,

Sharon Stone, Jeff Hephner Talk Stunts, Politics and Action at TNT’s ‘Agent X’ Premiere

Sharon Stone, Jeff Hephner Talk Stunts, Politics and Action at TNT’s ‘Agent X’ Premiere
Sharon Stone, Jeff Hephner and Olga Fonda attended the premiere of TNT’s newest fall television series, “Agent X,” at The London Tuesday in West Hollywood. Guests enjoyed a prescreening cocktail party and a popcorn and candy bar.

The show follows newly-elected vice president Natalie Maccabee (Stone), who upon inauguration is greeted with a surprise and Washington’s best kept secret — Agent X (Hephner). Maccabee has full discretion over this top secret agent’s unseen work, sending him into the field (without even the president’s knowledge) during times of extreme crisis.

The new series merges action and political drama, with an emphasis on dramatic fight scenes. Hephner, who plays Agent X, and Fonda, his Russian enemy, perform almost all of their own stunts. “I was going to go out bleeding if I had to,” Hephner said.

Although Hephner loves the thrills of the show, he acknowledged he’s happy
