While Collar star Tim DeKay is back playing an FBI agent with an unconventional partner. DeKay is set as a co-lead opposite Rob Kazinsky in the Fox pilot Frankenstein, from Rand Ravich, Howard Gordon and 20th TV. Also cast in the project in a recurring role is veteran character actor Philip Baker Hall, who plays the older version of Kazinsky’s central character.
Taking inspiration from the basic Mary Shelley mythology of a man brought back to life by scientists playing God, Frankenstein centers on Ray Pritchard (Hall), a morally corrupt retired cop who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Privy to information only a dead man could possess, this former Marine and L.A. County Sheriff (Kazinsky) teams with his son, FBI Agent Duval Pritchard (DeKay), to take down the bad guys. However, though his body is new, his thoughts and desires are of a 75-year-old badass curmudgeon. DeKay, coming off a six-season run on USA’s White Collar, and Hall are repped by Paradigm.
