Paul Giamatti Is Set To Star in FX Comedy, ‘Hoke’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….


Actor, Paul Giamatti has been set to star in a new comedy-drama series for FX called ‘Hoke‘, which is based on a tons of novels by Charles Willeford. ‘Hoke’s‘ pilot episode was written by Scott Frank, who will also direct and serve as showrunner. Frank received an Oscar nomination for his work on ‘Out of Sight‘ and a Golden Globe nomination for his work on ‘Get Shorty‘.

The series follows Hoke Moseley (Giamatti), who is a hardboiled and perhaps an insane homicide detective in 1985 Miami, who is having a mid-life crisis. FX president of programming Eric Schrier said, “Like Elmore Leonard, Charles Willeford is one of the most deeply respected writers of crime fiction and he created a wholly original and colorful lead character in Detective Hoke Mosely. Scott Frank delivered a magnificent script and we are honored that Paul Giamatti will bring Hoke to life.”

It’s great to see Giamatti headed to television, and I’m sure he will kill this role, just like he does every in every project he says yes to. Plus, I can’t wait to see 1985 Miami again on-screen.

This project sounds like a lot of fun and adds to the amazing lineup of shows for FX including ‘The Strain‘ from Guillermo Del Toro and ‘Tyrant‘ from Howard Gordon.

Movie Quotes

Captain Miller:
Well when I think of home, I... I think of something specific. I think of my, my hammock in the backyard or my wife pruning the rosebushes in a pair of my old work gloves.
Private Ryan:
This, this one night, two of my brothers came and woke me up in the middle of the night. And they said they had a surprise for me. So they took me to the barn up in the loft and there was my oldest brother, Dan, with Alice, Alice Jardine. I mean, picture a girl who just took a nosedive from the ugly tree and hit every branch coming down. And... and Dan's got his shirt off and he's working on this bra and he's tryin to get it off and all of a sudden Shawn just screams out, "Danny you're a young man, don't do it!" And so Alice Jardine hears this and she screams and she jumps up and she tries to get running out of the barn but she's still got this shirt over her head. She goes running right into the wall and knocks herself out. So now Danny's just so mad at us. He, he starts coming after us, but... but at the same time Alice is over there unconscious. He's gotta wa... , wake her up. So he grabs her by a leg and he's drag, dragging her. At the same time he picks up a shovel. And he's going after Shawn, and Shawn's saying, "What are you trying to hit me for? I just did you a favor!" And so this makes Dan more angry. He tries to swing this thing, he looses the shovel, goes outta his grasp and hits a kerosene lantern; the thing explodes, the whole barn almost goes up because of this thing. That was it. That was the last, that was, Dan went off to basic the next day. That was the last night the four of us were together. That was two years ago. Tell me about your wife and those rosebushes?
Captain Miller:
No, no that one I save just for me.
