Pilot Scoop: Chi McBride Uncovers Familiar Role in CBS' Golden Boy

Chi McBride is plotting a full-time return to TV with a role that’s right in his wheelhouse.

TV’s go-to gumshoe (Pushing Daisies, Human Target, etc.) has joined CBS’ Greg Berlanti-produced drama pilot Golden Boy as, you guessed it, a gruff detective.

Review Our Ongoing List of This Season’s Pilots for ABCCBSThe CWFox and NBC

The potential series, penned by NYPD Blue vet Nicholas Wootton, tracks one cop’s meteoric rise from officer to detective to Police Commissioner. McBride would play Owen, the title character’s jaded partner.

    Once again the black person is not the lead.

  2. Mark says:

    It’s a Berlanti show; it will suck anyway. Too bad, love Chi.

  3. Kyle says:

    A brainless crime procedural on CBS? How utterly delightful and unexpected!

  4. CJ says:

    He’s my 3rd favorite letter of the Greek alphabet.

  5. Beth says:

    Good to have him back, though I’ll always wish we would have gotten to see more of Emerson Cod.

  6. Mark says:

    I was hoping the familiar role was as a HS principal :(

  7. Ryan says:

    Yeah too bad he’s not the lead. Anyway, great, friendly guy. Had the pleasure to meet him at a Human Target autograph signing. He told me that of the nearly 10 shows he’d been a series regular on, some of them lasting a long time (I figured he meant Boston Public), Pushing Daisies is the one he misses most

  8. David says:

    Chi Mcbride is an awesome actor and I hope this series works! He is great in everything that he does. Boston Public was certainly his best role and he honestly deserves a full series with him as the star.

  9. Bella says:

    I’m glad he’s getting another show, but I sure miss Human Target.

  10. Matthew Thomas says:

    He will always be Emerson Cod to me. Should have won an emmy for that show. Man I still miss Pushing Daisies :(

    Screw this show, bring back Human Target!! Loved that show so much :(.

    I hope he does well as I have liked him in all he has done. I do really miss Human Target. I do not like Mark Valley as Oliver in Harry’s Law. Loved him as Chance.
