Exclusive : Watson in Ratner’s Cop House

nullMy old mate (and producing partner) Muse Watson has been cast in Brett Ratner’s new boys-in-blue comedy, “Cop House”. The project, which reunites Muse with his “Prison Break” EP Ratner, is set in a half-way house for troubled cops.

Muse, also known for his roles in the “I Know What You Di Last Summer” films, “From Dusk Till Dawn 2″ and “Dead Birds”, will play Stubbs, the ‘house manager’ in the Fox pilot. Muse is ecstatic to be doing a comedy after lending his talent to much heavier projects in recent years. If you’ve seen his cameo in “Austin Powers : The Spy Who Shagged Me” though (he played the Klan member), you’ll know he’s more than capable of stealing laughs.

Scott Caan, Tony Hale (TVs “Arrested Development”), Rachael Harris (“The Soloist) and Ajay Naidu (“Office Space”) also star.

Ratner will direct the pilot and executive produce the series for Fox.
