Andre Braugher joins Ray Romano pilot
I've been an Andre Braugher fan since Homicide: Life on the Street, and I'm excited to see him get a promising role like this. Braugher is more of a dramatic actor, but he's definitely capable of getting some laughs. No word yet on who's playing the third friend. The character has been described as an aspiring actor.
Men of a Certain Age was originally created for HBO and found a home at TNT after HBO passed on it. This move might turn out to be a positive thing for the series. TNT has some solid, popular dramas, and Romano's pilot would fit right in. If the show is less like a sitcom and more like the grown-up comedy I'm expecting, I'll be sure to give it a chance.
