Have you seen the new CBS drama Golden Boy? The pilot aired last night and I forbade Justin from changing it out of curiosity. The cast is fantabulous, you’ve got James, your regulation hottie, the guy who played Jesus in “True Blood” as your bad cop, the detective in “Pushing Daisies” as the wise old veteran cop, and some blond chick you are sure you’ve seen before but can’t readily identify. I don’t really watch much TV (unless it’s midterm time) so the fact I’d even heard of it before it aired pushed me to investigate.
I didn’t even realize Theo James was Mr. Pamuk in Series 1 of Downton Abbey until just now, and I had already googled him earlier! Which is when I found THIS:
“I try to use public transport, always. My obsession is plastic packaging. It makes me sick, all the waste. Everything about it disappoints me,” says Theo James, star of the new CBS cop drama “Golden Boy.” The set isn’t as green as he’d like. “They do try and make an effort, but there is a lot of plastic packaging and forks and paper cups.” -from the article.
I mean, seriously. I will watch this show JUST FOR THAT. Not that there is much else to go on, it’s not terribly compelling, in my opinion. He DOES have a convincing American accent like 70% of the time. So there is that.
& I’ve just realized Theo James is the second Brit I’ve posted about here (the other one was vlogger/musician Alex Day). WHAT UP, BRITAIN! The Queen’s corgis all applaud you with their stubby feets. Just..lay off the horse meat scandals & we will remain cool.
Happy pilot season & pura vida!
