Damon Wayans as a feisty sports radio host? Could be.
The comedian is set to star in a show based on the life and times of ESPN personality Colin Cowherd, who some would say is the network’s resident fire starter.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wayans has solidified a deal to star in the CBS pilot as character Nick Herd.
It matters not that these two men are of different races (Cowherd is Caucasian), Wayans will slay this character, and I mean that in a good way.
Cowherd will join the project as a producer. I certainly hope this gets picked up.
