Now back in the day I loved me some Rockford Files. I remember watching when I got home from school I think. Or maybe it was right after dinner. hmmmmmmm. That means it was a LONGGGGG time ago and the brain cells holding that information have shriveled up and died. Poor brain cells. Thanks for the memories. NOT.
I thought Jim Rockford was cute. I wont say sexy, because I was fairly young and dont think I understood what sexy was back then. I also was in love with Robert Wagner, but thats another story for another day.
Anyway, back to the reason I'm writing about a show from the 70's. They've cast a new actor to play Jim Rockford.
Dermot Mulroney to star in "Rockford" update
By Nellie Andreeva Sun Feb 28, 10:10 PM PST
Dermot Mulroney is NBC's new Jim Rockford.
In his first regular TV role, Mulroney is set to play the iconic private eye in the network's updated take on the hit 1970s drama that starred James Garner in the title role.
The new Jim Rockford is described as "slightly crumpled, wry humored, cynical, world weary, compassionate when it's called for and easily irritated by morons."
His troubled past includes doing some time as a convict and as a cop.
Aside from an arc on NBC's "Friends" in 2003, "My Best Friend's Wedding" co-star Mulroney has been focused on features, most recently appearing in "Burn After Reading."
NBC's "Rockford Files" was written by "House" creator David Shore, who is executive producing with Steve Carell.
I heart me some Dermot Mulrony. He's a cutie.
I cry with Julia in that scene. 'Cause I'm mooshy like that.
And because now I have to hear the song...(and ignore the bozo in the video. Its the only version I could find by Frankie Sinatra singing the song believe it or not.)
And is it Friday yet?? Because I'm wondering if this week can get anymore shitastic. It needs to be over.
