Gummer has been cast in Backstrom, a new dramatic pilot for CBS. It’s based on the book series by Leif G.W. Persson and revolves around Evert Backstrom; an overweight, offensive, irascible detective, as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior.
The project stars Rainn Wilson (The Office) and veterans of other cancelled shows such as Dennis Haysbert (The Unit), Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer), Beatrice Rosen (Cuts), Page Kennedy (Blue Mountain State), Thomas Dekker (The Secret Circle), and Camryn Manheim (Ghost Whisperer).
What do you think? If Backstrom gets picked up, will you be tuning in to support Gummer?
