Wyatt Earp Dennis Quaid Cowboys Up again for CBS drama

Wyatt Earp Dennis Quaid Cowboys Up again for CBS drama

One of my favourite actors, Dennis Quaid (“The Right Stuff”, “Wyatt Earp”, “Innerspace”, “D.O.A”, “Flesh & Bone”, “Postcards from the Edge”, “Frequency”… do I need to go own?!) is headed to TV.

Seemingly convinced the big studios have run out of use for him film-wise – and looking at that horrible D-grade flick he just did, “Beneath the Darkness”, where he plays a serial killer to the beat of a telemovie plot, he could be right! – Randy’s sane brother has accepted an offer to take his skills to the box.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Quaid and Michael Chiklis are in talks to front an untitled cowboy drama for CBS “based on the true story of Ralph Lamb, a rodeo cowboy-turned-longtime sheriff in Las Vegas. Quaid would star, with Chiklis playing opposite him as a Chicago mobster who moves to Vegas.”

Chiklis is coming off the recently-canned “No Ordinary Family”, while Quaid was the preacher in Craig Brewer’s unsuccessful but fun “Footloose” remake.

Greg Walker and Nicholas Pileggi are attached to write and executive produce along with James Mangold, the “3:10 to Yuma” helmer is also helming the pilot.

So long as it’s not “Las Vegas” or “The Defenders”, and actually has something different to say, I’ll be listening!
