John Lithgow returning to NBC

I love everything John Lithgow does. He made a great woman in The World According to Garp, a terrifying villain in Raising Cain, and a perfectly goofy alien in 3rd Rock From the Sun. He even made a children's album a few years ago that ended up being a big hit with my niece. He seems like the kind of guy who is always trying to challenge himself creatively and I respect that. Plus, he kind-of dances to the beat of his own drum.

So, I'm happy to announce that he's returning to primetime television as one of two stars in the NBC comedy, Twenty Good Years. It's about two aging men who have epiphanies and set out to live their final two decades to their fullest. Kinda sounds like My Name is Earl. No idea who the other lead is.

Is anybody else out there a John Lithgow fan?

I'm a John Lithgow fan. I really liked him in Orange County, but my favorite Lithgow role is John Whorfin in The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

Yes. John Lithgow rocks. I wish Great Performances would show Dirty Rotten Scoundrels someday.

Stanley Tucci is in negotiations with Producers for the other lead role alongside Lithgow.
