According to TVLine, Johnson will play Allan Mann, a successful hair stylist who finds himself struggling to stay relevant in an industry that emphasizes youth.
The drama pilot comes from 'Sex and the City''s Michael Patrick King. 'The Vampire Diaries' star Taylor Kinney is also on board as the current "it boy" in the stylist world.
Arguably, the highlight of the ad, which had its TV premiere Tuesday during TNT's broadcast of the Heat vs. Celtics game, is the appearance of Miami's former king. Decked out in his baby blue v-neck and white linen suit, it's none other than Don Johnson.
In our culture, when we come across a problem child or a hooligan or an ugly person, we generally say, "look at the parents" to see where things began to go wrong.
But what about someone as severely and disturbingly ignorant as Kenny Powers; someone who can't understand that it's possible and often optimal to live a life without glue induced hangovers? Reuniting with his father, Eduardo Sanchez (Don Johnson) may not only be a window into Kenny's soul; it could also be a doorway through which none of us are even remotely prepared to pass through.
That can buy a whole lot of yellow convertibles.
Johnson sued Rysher Entertainment LLC back in February of 2009, saying he was owed millions in profits as the co-owner of the copyright to his popular show. A jury agreed, and, in July, awarded the actor $23.2 million. Judge Michael Stern added 10 percent interest for every year since Johnson and Rysher signed the deal in 1998, amounting to $28 million in interest and $51.2 million total.
On 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' (Sun., 10PM ET on E!), we've got sisters sharing perhaps too much about one another's personal appearance, targeting areas best left undiscussed, while Jewel stopped by 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) to laugh about stealing another woman's car.
Johnson admitted that he had "passed through" West Hollywood, and this was Ferguson's reply: "Didn't we all, in the 80s?" Huh? Say what now? The actor and the host then made vague references to the following things:
While talking to Leno, Johnson recounts his one and only shot at Emmy-related glory. In 1985, he was nominated as Best Actor in a Drama for his work on 'Miami Vice.' And he didn't win. It's been 25 years since then, but Don still seems a little irritated. He calls the whole Emmy experience "painful" and "excruciating," while Jay laughs and claps his hands. "I was pissed!" Johnson says.
But has the CW teen drama finally hit a wall with news that Bush, its biggest remaining star, is looking to move on to a higher profile show -- and network -- for next season?
Bush, who plays teen queen-turned-fashion mogul Brooke Davis on 'OTH,' has signed on to co-star in the ABC comedy pilot 'Southern Discomfort,' in which she will play the daughter of a Texas couple played by Don Johnson and Mary Steenburgen.
In the series, which sounds like a potentially great fit with ABC's Wednesday night comedy line-up of 'The Middle,' 'Modern Family' and 'Cougar Town,' Johnson would play a hard-nosed, conservative Texan whose adult children move back into the family home. Chaos, of course, ensues.

Because when were you swooning over TV hunks? When you were a teenager, of course. Unless you are really, really immature. But seriously, I am guessing that beyond the age of 16 or so, you probably didn't plaster any Teen Magazine pin-ups on your bedroom walls.
As a teenager of the '80s, I surely had my favorite TV hunks. Yep, they were plastered on my bedroom walls, too: imagine hunk wallpaper and you've got the idea. So who on TV mingled amongst the movie actors of the Brat Pack?
This week's letter comes from a reader named Elaine and I definitely need any help I can get.
"I'm looking for the name of a TV series that ended with a group of people walking up to a truck and it exploded with someone in it. The show was cancelled a few years ago and I need to know the name or I'm gonna go crazy"
In this business we call show, there are those people who never let us forget that they are involved to make money. Luckily, those people often occupy the off camera part of the business and let the performers worry about making art. Meanwhile, the business types sit back and try to think up ways they can make more money off of the performers. One of the most insidious ways is to appeal to the star's ego and convince them to make a recording. What follows are some of the best -- and by "best," I mean "WTF?"
Most people today recognize he name Phyllis Diller but have no idea why she was famous, however if they watch this clip, they can be sure that it isn't for singing.
I guess they're showing the pilot to remind everyone what the show was about. I can give it to you in eight words: Don Johnson. Old lawyer. Young lawyer. Wackiness ensues. There. Now you can free up another summer Sunday and go to the beach.
