5. Blair Underwood books ‘Ironside’ remake
Blair Underwood is having a seat for his next role. BlackThespian.com reports that the actor has signed to star in the remake of the ’60s TV drama "Ironside."
Blair will be heading up the cast as a sexy, but sarcastic and exacting detective named Robert T. Ironside that’s been confined to wheelchair after getting shot. But Rob doesn’t let the injury handicap him as he leads a carefully picked team to crack some difficult cases.
"Ironside" originally enjoyed an eight-season run on NBC from 1967-1975, when it starred Raymond Burr. There’s no word on when the update of "Ironside" might be making its way to air at this time.
