Wasting Talent

You know what I don't want Alan Tudyk (Wash) doing? Playing another fucking lawyer on TV.

Put him with Greg Grunberg together on J.J. Abram's previously developed, now dead bounty hunter show, playing rival bounty hunters. Make him a sheriff in the old west. Have him play a test pilot who flies the rejiggered UFOs at Area 51 in an ensemble show by Barry Sonnenfeld. Hell, cast him on a recurring guest spot on 30 Rock or How I Met Your Mother or some other smart comedy. But c'mon... a lawyer? You've already wasted James Woods as a lawyer, television people. You've already wasted Anthony Anderson as another boring cop.

Why is TV obsessed with lawyers and cops? For every good one, there's about a dozen bad ones.
