Patrick Swayze is a “Beast”

Patrick SwayzeQuick! Somebody go grab Baby from the corner and let her know that Johnny Castle is back. Yes, Patrick Swayze has a new project but it has nothing to do with dancing (sad for me, good for him). Swayze has just been cast in the upcoming A&E original series, “Beast“.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Beast” centers on an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran (Swayze) who trains a new partner (Travis Fimmel, “Tarzan”) in his hard-edged, psychologically clever style while being pursued by a secret Internal Affairs team.

“This is a very smart show, and with these actors, it should definitely be something our viewers would really gravitate toward,” A&E senior vp drama programming Tana Nugent Jamieson said. “Patrick plays a tough, darker character that needs some likability, and he definitely has that.”

No word yet on when the show will premiere, but shooting will commence before the end of the year.

    This should be interesting. I haven’t seen Patrick in anything since his freaky plastic surgery (maybe he and Jennifer Grey should do something together as people who don’t look anything like they did 20 years ago?) Where has Travis Fimmel been? Maybe this part will require him to me almost naked most of the time like in Tarzan.
