Gary Cole to Star in Pilot by 'Monk' Creator

Gary ColeUh, yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah, from this TBS report it looks like Gary Cole is going to be starring in a new hour-long comedy from Andy Breckman, the creator of 'Monk.' It's about a veteran Philadelphia cop who has to train his goofy nephew partner. Maybe it will be a modern 'Andy Griffith Show' (only Barney and Andy were cousins). It's called 'Uncle Nigel,' and Cole will be playing Nigel.

Cole is a really underrated actor. He just seems to bop along over the decades in role after role, but if you look at what he's done it's been pretty fantastic, from his role in the NBC drama 'Midnight Caller' (which I think was a little ahead of its time and would fit in nicely today) to a terrific Robert Reed impression in the 'Brady Bunch' movies to his classic role in 'Office Space' and 'The West Wing' (above).

Yeeeeeeeeaaaaah, if you could get this TBS show on the air as soon as possible, that'd be great. Thanks.

Gary Cole was TERRIFIC in The West Wing as President Bartlett's 2nd VP. Played that role perfectly. As a result, I would check him out in any new series.

Don't forget he was in Desperate Housewifes as Katherine's ex-husband. He was excellent in that as well.

No, actually, I meant to say TBS.

It's actually 'TPS,' not 'TBS.'

He just needs to make a live-action Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law series. 'Nuff said.
