Anthony Edwards ready to kick the tires, light the fires again on TV
Revenge of the Nerds. Gotcha. The Sure Thing. Top Gun. Hell, the '80s OWNS Anthony Edwards. But we're happy to lend Goose out for his first TV series since leaving E.R.
UPI reports that Edwards will return to television on Thursday, Feb. 14, at 8 p.m. in ABC's Zero Hour. In the conspiracy mystery series, Edwards plays Hank Galliston, a magazine publisher whose wife is suddenly kidnapped. UPI says the show was produced for Showtime, which passed on the project. That's fine; we can't afford premium cable these days anyway.
