More TV casting news; feels like there has been quite a bit of that in the last week.
This time Chi McBride has joined the cast of the CBS ensemble drama pilot titled Golden Boy.
The new potential series follows one cop's meteoric rise from officer to detective to police commissioner.
McBride will play the a Detective named Don Owen, described as gruff (McBride does gruff very well doesn't he? :)).
Owen is gets a new partner in a young, ambitious cop who rises rapidly through the ranks after breaking up a major drug ring and becoming a local hero.
No word on who's playing the lead in this, but I'm pretty sure he won't be black :)
Maybe CBS will surprise me. I doubt it, but ya never know right?
Anyway... congrats to Chi on getting work. The project actually intrigues enough.
