    Awww man, I was hoping Matt would bring back The Good Guys—I think it would have been a success on USA.

    • ben says:

      Good Guys was fantastic. Brad Whitford is on Trophy Wife now though. Of course, attaching Jason O’Mara to the project probably means it wn’t last even as lon as Good Guys did!

      • Pat D. says:

        Yeah, and probably Hanks commands a much greater salary nowadays too, maybe it wouldn’t even been financially feasible…

  2. Laura Aliaga says:

    Poor Jason O’Mara cannot catch a break, his name attached to any new project always spells d-o-o-m. I wish him luck on this one, he’s a great actor

  3. c0rinne says:

    Congrats Mr. Jason “Show Killer” O’Mara. Good luck.

  4. pam says:
