No 'Psych'-out: Judd Nelson back on TV
Do you have a favorite Judd Nelson role? We're betting it's his epic take as Bender in The Breakfast Club. Or the fidelity-challenged Alex Newbary in St. Elmo's Fire. Maybe Eddie Keaton in 1984's Making the Grade?
Judd's favorite role is probably whatever role he's playing next. Aside from his entertaining turn in TV's Suddenly Susan, the former Brat Packer has had a relatively low profile career since the '80s.
But we're "psyched" (sorry) to say his latest job will be on TV's Psych, where he'll play Dr. Reidman, a specialist at the Centers for Disease Control. (Eww.) The show broke the news on their Twitter feed -- how un-80s! -- but will only say he's on Episode 12 in the winter run.
Still, we'll take it. And for what it's worth, IMDB.com shows Nelson will 10 flicks in some various stage of production. Until those arrive, we'll busy ourselves with these forgotten performances until that "winter run."
