Dennis Hopper to star in Crash

Dennis Hopper Dennis Hopper is set to star in the new original series Crash, produced by Starz and Lionsgate. This is the first drama series for the network. Based on the Academy Award-winning movie, Crash has begun filming in New Mexico and Los Angeles. Sanford Bookstaver (Jericho, Bones, The O.C.) will direct the premiere episode.

According to the press release, the show "will continue to focus on an ensemble cast of characters" and "will explore the complexities of social tolerance in contemporary America by digging at the meaning of what it takes to reach the American dream." Hopper will play Ben, a veteran, maverick producer in the music biz who is looking for his last big score. Other stars include Clare Carey, Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee, and Arlene Tur. Crash will come to Starz in October.

Watch your backs, HBO and Showtime! This show looks good. And Paul Haggis is on the team of executive producers. He didn't just give us Crash. He gave us thirtysomething and The Black Donnellys. Don't mess with the Hag.

I'm sure he just loves that nickname.

Dennis Hopper hasn't done anything of note in a long time. This really doesn't make me hopeful.

Paul Haggis also gave us "Walker Texas Ranger". So, just remember that.

Well not really - he helped in the retooling of "Walker" and got a creator credit out of it which he knows he'll never live down. He's more proud of his creator credit on "Due South" though.
