You’re making a show about corruption in the police force, in which one man looks to stand against the system and bring a renewed sense of justice and integrity to the city’s law enforcement. Who do you cast as the lead: Mahershala Ali? Terry Crews? Maybe even Ty Burrell if you want to go a little more comedic and cast against-type (now that we’re thinking about it, that sounds exciting).
Well, Netflix went even weirder with casting for their new show The Good Cop. They cast … famed singer-songwriter Josh Groban!
And you know what? Based on the spot, he looks like a really natural choice! He brings the right amount of buttoned-up, ho-hum, just-doing-his-best kinda mild-mannered-ness. And you know what? Tony Danza plays his dad! This looks totally charming and completely natural, somehow!
We’re in for Josh Groban. He’s playing The Good Cop when it hits Netflix on September 21.
