Rescue Me gets a new guest star
The New York Times TV blog, TV Decoder, reported today via Reuters that Michael J. Fox will appear as a guest star on the upcoming season of Rescue Me as the wheelchair-bound boyfriend of the ex-wife of the show’s protagonist, Tommy Gavin (played so brilliantly by Dennis Leary, who I hate in everything else besides this show).
This is great news for another of my favorite shows. Fox did a guest spot in 2004 on Scrubs as the Kevin Casey, a brilliant but obsessive-compulsive super doctor and was terrific. And his addition to Rescue Me will no doubt be a boost for show, which many claimed took a hit in season four and will see slagging viewership when it returns in 2009.
