"I Robot" recruting out of Schools?


"Boston Public" star Chi McBride has joined the cast of the sci-fi actioner "I, Robot" opposite Will Smith for director Alex Proyas and 20th Century Fox, says The Hollywood Reporter. "Robot" is a futuristic thriller in which a detective (Smith) investigates a crime that may have been perpetrated by a robot, even though the three prevailing laws of the robot society suggest that such a crime is impossible. Bridget Moynahan and Alan Tudyk round out the cast. McBride will play the lieutenant boss of Smith’s character who urges the detective to close the case to lessen any political fallout from the incident.
