What can I say? I love ruggedly handsome men and stories about underdog boxers. Entering the ring this morning is Holt McCallany who I first saw ages ago on a short-lived science fiction show titled FREEDOM. Holt played a soldier in that show, another of my favorites – military men.
Now Holt is playing the role of an ex-boxer trying to make a comeback in the new FX series LIGHTS OUT. It has tried and true hooks that many people love a la Rocky Balboa – an underdog trying to right a wrong (a controversial split decision) and support his family.
I know I’ll be recording the premiere tomorrow when it airs on FX. If you watch the show live, let me know how you liked it!
Here’s a little trailer for the show with the very manly and rugged Holt.
