I am – Hercules!!
“House” creator David Shore is looking to launch a revival of Roy Huggins and Stephen Cannell’s beloved and acclaimed James Garner private detective hourlong “The Rockford Files.”
And Steve Carell’s company is producing.
But the big question must be answered! Who can possibly fill the gumshoes of world-weary workaday sleuth Jim Rockford? I think a lot of us are still stinging from Stewart Townsend trying to follow Darren McGavin on the 2005 “Night Stalker” remake.
Will they go for someone like Mark Sheppard (Romo Lampkin on “Galactica”) or someone more Sellecky like “Las Vegas”/”Transformers” star Josh Duhamel?
My kneejerk suggestion is a guy absolutely nobody is thinking of right now: Norm Macdonald.
