Patrick Swayze isn’t letting a thing called pancreatic cancer stop him from doing what he’s good at. He’s just signed on to star in the A&E series “The Beast.”
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the “”Beast,” centers on an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran (Swayze) who trains a new partner (Travis Fimmel) in his hard-edged and psychologically clever style of agenting while being pursued by a secret Internal Affairs team.”
Production on the 13 episodes begin this summer in Chicago. The show will air in 2009.
The Swayze will continue treatment at Stanford University Medical Center while shooting the show. He said, “I have searched for quite a long time to find a character that is this multi-layered, unpredictable and downright entertaining, as well as a project this current and cutting-edge.”
He’s back! As much as I can’t wait to see The Swayze on TV, I really think he should put out a full-length album. “She’s Like The Wind” and “Raising Heaven (In Hell Tonight)” are both on heavy rotation in my iTunes.
