Kevin Connolly will be rolling with a different kind of entourage this fall.
The actor will recur on Fox’s upcoming baseball drama Pitch as Charlie Graham, the San Diego Padres’ interim president of operations, TVLine has learned. But don’t be fooled by Charlie’s friendly, youthful demeanor; the former Silicon Valley exec takes a “cut throat bottom line approach” to the baseball business.
“I’ve had a great relationship with Fox over the years and am happy to be back,” Connolly says of his new role.
As TVLine recently reported, former Grandfathered star Josh Peck will also appear on Pitch, playing a “neo-geeky” analyst named Ross O’Malley.
Pitch premieres Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c. Will you tune in? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
