Fox Hopes ‘Rake’ Is Their New ‘House,’ Greg Kinnear Is Hugh Laurie

Fox’s “Rake” is a legal drama, but the showrunners want you to know it’s not like all those other legal dramas. For starters, it’s kind of a comedy, actually — or it lives in the oft-frustrating-to-explain middle ground that falls under both genres. Heard of that before too? Well this one is already a hit — just not in America. “Rake” was created by Peter Duncan, originally airing in his home-country of Australia. On this side of the Pacific Ocean, the former attorney-turned-TV-man has no idea how viewers will receive his series, which stars Greg Kinnear.   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/rake-fox-peter-duncan-greg-kinnear-mike-wimer-house-hugh-laurie-kevin-reilly

Rake: Is Greg Kinnear TV's Most Likable Antihero?

Entertainment Television's satirical "Talk Soup" set Kinnear up for an acting career that began in earnest with the 1995 movie remake of "Sabrina." He's kept at that ever since, from his Oscar-nominated turn in "As Good as It Gets" and his Emmy bid for playing JFK in the miniseries "The Kennedys" to his current role as Ron Burgundy's rival in love in the comedy "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues."Kinnear remains an actor in tackling TV on a steady basis again.
