Bakula To Co-Star In New Drama Pilot

Scott Bakula will take on the role of a struggling actor named Terry in Men of a Certain Age.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Bakula will join Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street) in the one-hour pilot ordered by TNT.

Men of a Certain Age is a new drama which takes a wry look at what it means to be a man approaching middle-age. It also explores the unique bonds of male friendship. Romano's character Joe, the focus of the show, will play a forty-something father of two who dreams of being a professional golfer, but owns and runs a party store. Bakula and Braugher play his best friends. Bakula will be portraying Terry; a handsome, intelligent actor who is struggling to make it. Braugher will take on the role of Owen, an overstressed husband and father who is a car salesman at his father's dealership.

"'Men of a Certain Age' is about the highs and lows of being a guy in the modern era," said Michael Wright, senior vice president in charge of the content creation group for TNT and its sister networks, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. "It's about three best friends, each hoping to fulfill his dreams before the clock starts running out. It's an honest, emotional, funny and very personal take on the subject. 'Men of a Certain Age' is a very special project for TNT, and we're proud to be doing it with Ray [Romano] and Mike [Royce, showrunner]. When we read the script we knew right away this is a series we want to bring to our audience."

Re: Bakula To Co-Star In New Drama Pilot

You know, I have a survey that I give to all my new students and the last question is: "What is your big dream?"
I have gotten some really interesting and fascinating answers.
I have also discovered that some people don't have one. It's a bit like being dead spiritually. Really very sad. Those people need a lot of encouragement.

Scott Bakula is also filming a movie with Matt Damon about the whistleblower at Archer Daniels Midland. It is/was being filmed in my hometown of Decatur, IL.

Yeah, I did an article on that some time back. I remember it.
