    What Jim said, Besides, that person didn’t say anything that horrible nor did he/she specify to whom he/she was referring.

    Smart move by Mr. Duhamel, since his movie career is not like it was..Great names to be attached to a show..Breaking Bad is already an American classic, loved that show..And always loved Josh in AMC..Leo was a great character and he played it great!

    Glad he’s coming back to television, but NOT glad it’s for (yet another) cop show. Just how many cop shows do we need? We’re overrun with them now. I’d much rather see him in a dramedy in the vein of “Las Vegas” where he could use his comedic skills.


    Zach replied

    This is a dramedy. And a very funny one. And while it is a cop show, it’s very character based, around the rivalry between Russ and Milton.


    harry replied

    Plus, Gilligan is a genius–he will make this work.

    SZima replied

    If that’s the case, then I’m all for it. But no where in the article does it indicate that this is a “dramedy.” It only refers to it as a drama. I can only go by what I’m reading.

    Not surprised he came back to TV. Smart move on his part. I’m looking forward to it. Now if only they’d ask his former AMC costar, Rebecca Budig to guest star or better yet, have a recurring role, it would be the bomb! ;)
