Tom Cavanagh Gets Lead in New ABC Drama

Tom CavanaghI'm rooting for Tom Cavanagh. 'Ed' not only entertained me, it changed my life (but that's a whole other post). He hasn't had much luck since leaving that show, TV series-wise anyway. 'Love Monkey' was a good show but short-lived, and 'Trust Me' was a huge disappointment and vanished after one season (he has fared better in key minor roles on shows like 'Eli Stone'). But now Cavanagh has been cast in another role, and it's completely different than his other lead roles.

According to Michael Ausiello, Cavanagh had landed the lead role in the pilot for the new ABC drama 'Edgar Floats.' He'll play a police psychologist who is also a bounty hunter, so I'm thinking it's will be sorta kinda a mix of things like 'CSI' and 'Castle' and 'House.' No, he last name won't be floats. The title actually refers to him being adrift in his personal life.

This makes me want to get out my 'Ed' videotapes, and pray once again that the show will be released on DVD at some point.

I'm a huge fan of Tom, although I couldn't take more than a few episodes of "Trust Me". But a police psychologist who's also a bounty hunter? Come on. That screams stupid TV pitch. Are we going to reach the point where everyone on TV has to be involved in crime fighting? He couldn't just be someone normal, he's got to be a combination of Sherlock Holmes and...um, a bounty hunter? Very lame.

Best of luck to Tom, love the guy. Every time he gets a new series I hope it does well mainly so perhaps Ed and Love Monkey will come out on DVD!
