FX Orders a Billy Crystal Pilot


FX has ordered a comedy pilot starring Billy Crystal, the network announced today. The Comedians, based on a Swedish show of the same name, is about a veteran comic (Crystal) who gets paired up with an edgier young upstart (yet uncast!) for a late-night show. Comedy vet Larry Charles is onboard to direct the episode, which will shoot this summer, and also to serve as a writer and executive producer. This is Crystal's first TV show since Soap, believe it or not, and Soap ended in 1981.

It couldn't be any worse than some of the other crap that is on the air. Crystal is actually funny and can act. if they cast the right foil for him it might be fun. I'm a fan.

He wasn't funny when he was supposed to be funny. The whole rambling, bewildered simpleton schtick is to fucking tired.
