Eriq La Salle comes back to TV in... a comedy?

Eriq La SalleIf I told you intense actor Eriq La Salle was coming back to TV in a project where he plays one of about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, would you ever guess in a hundred years that the show would be a comedy? Me neither. Which is why his new project for NBC might be interesting. The former ER star is executive producing and starring in the comedy, called The Four Next Door; where the Four Horsemen are forced to live among the humans when they arrive on earth ten years too early. Heh. Either this is going to be funny as hell or depressing as hell.

Anyway, it's not like this is the first time La Salle has done comedy. Remember he played the Jheri-curled Darryl Jenks in Coming to America. Of course, that was eighteen years ago, but it's on his resume.

(Update: La Salle is executive producing the show, not starring in it. Thanks to Chris Rose for the clarification. I think I inferred the words "starring in" when I read the article. My mistake.)

I hope Pterry Pratchett intends to sue.

This story is incorrect.
La Salle is only producing this show, not starring in it.
He will be starring in "a CBS drama project called 25 to Life. La Salle will play an FBI detective in the crime drama, who pairs with incarcerated criminals to capture fugitives. The project is being exec produced by Marc Moss and produced by Humble Journey Prods and CBS Paramount."
