FX Is Giving Eddie Izzard Another Chance To Fail

Friday, April 1 by

Eddie Izzard may have struck out with “The Riches,” but that’s not enough reason for FX to not let him have another turn at bat.

He’s back with a new drama project where he’ll play a disgraced former Congressman. After a sex scandal costs him his job, he becomes an aggressive political fixer. Job duties entail he blackmail, steal, and use guns in a threatening manner. I’m sure he’ll also find a way to end up in drag on the series. Cheeky monkey. (Deadline)

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Riches while it lasted. FX has a tendency to have great shows. and Eddie Izzard is a total beast.

    FX is giving the viewing public a chance to get it right this time. Eddie plays a rogue very well.
