Subject: David to co-star in Fox comedy! Here's part of a Deadline Hollywood article I saw.

JAG alum David James Elliott is set to co-star opposite Jane Kaczmarek in Here’s Your Damn Family, Fox’s half-hour pilot from writer Ricky Blitt, The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki and producer Stephen McPherson. The Warner Bros. TV-produced multi-camera comedy centers on a stunted, set-in-his-ways thirtysomething man living with his mom (Kaczmarek) who finds his perfectly organized world upended when she gets married — and her new husband (Elliott) plus his three teenage children move in. Elliott’s Mike is a ruggedly handsome, straightforward, ‘man’s man’ widower.

[> From this description of David's character, it seems that the part was written specifically for him. "Mike is a ruggedly handsome, straightforward, ‘man’s man’. " Sounds like something fun to watch! -- Lee, 10:12:57 02/17/14 Mon [1]

[> Well, I'll try to reserve judgment until the actual show airs. Because based on what I am reading, the concept sounds a little strange. DJE's character sounds like he rushed into marriage - like he wants a mother for his kids & a house. And describing his looks makes me wonder how that will be played up in the show, what kinds of situations will his looks be used to "set up". And why doesn't the 30-something guy just move out? Is he that much of a mama's boy? I hope it does work. Since JAG ended, DJE just hasn't seem to find much success. -- Araninda, 15:02:28 02/17/14 Mon [1]

[> Whoever is cast for the 30-something guy could really make or break the show. No word yet who or who even is in the running. Waiting to see how this plays out. -- mj, 16:24:59 02/17/14 Mon [1]

[> [> Jon Heder is the Napolean Dynamite guy. He's pretty popular. I think this means the show has a really good chance. -- JJ Ronda, 06:27:10 02/20/14 Thu [1]

[> [> It's a pilot for Fox. I guess that means that we won't see it until the Fall. I suppose it's possible it could have a summer run, but that seems kind of quick, since it hasn't actually been picked up yet. -- JJ Ronda--It could also be a mid-season replacement next year., 06:29:21 02/20/14 Thu [1]

[> I have two concerns. 1) the title. They dam* well better change the name of that dam* show! And 2) we know how Hollywood loves it's "man's man" characters (NOT!!!), so I'm afraid they will play if for laughs and make him just another anachronistic butt of hipster jokes. -- The Chief, 00:49:58 02/22/14 Sat [1]

[> [> If they even just left out the word and called it "Here's Your Family," that would be better. -- Deemus, 14:01:52 02/22/14 Sat [1]

[> [> [> I agree. Here's Your Family would be just fine. I don't see why they need that word in the title. -- JJ Ronda, 23:23:40 02/22/14 Sat [1]

[> I'm a wait and see kind of person. I don't have enough info to make a judgement yet-but I'll check it out if it gets picked up! -- manette, 12:37:55 02/24/14 Mon [1]

[> I think Welcome to the Family would be more interesting and agree with everyone - damn is a problem - it's like GCB - the name alone probably killed the show long before the ratings -- chris k, 08:05:49 02/27/14 Thu [1]
