Before co-writing Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora,” Michael Tolkin was exposing the crimes and misdemeanors of the Hollywood elite in the 1992 Robert Altman film “The Player.” The cameos may not pack the punch they did 25 years ago, but those of a certain age will still get a kick out of watching Jack Lemmon and Burt Reynolds as glorified extras.
