'Sex and the City' alum John Corbett to co-star in Denis Leary pilot
John Corbett is set to rock out with Denis Leary on the small screen.
EW has confirmed that the Sex and the City actor will co-star alongside Leary in FX’s comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, which is written and produced by the Rescue Me alum.
Leary plays Johnny Rock, an aging rocker who ruined his dreams of being rich and famous as the lead singer of New York’s legendary early 1990s band The Heathens. Twenty-five years after breaking the band up on the same day their first and only record was released, Johnny, now a broke bartender, tries to get everyone back together, including Flash (Corbett), the much-acclaimed former lead guitarist of The Heathens who helped originally form the band.
Corbett returns to FX after starring in the short-lived poker comedy Lucky. His other TV credits include United States of Tara and a role as another aging rocker on NBC’s Parenthood.
