CBS The Crazy Ones | About | Cast
Academy Award winner Robin Williams returns to series television in THE CRAZY ONES, a single-camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired... if he weren't the boss. Simon Roberts is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is having his daughter Sydney by his side. As his partner, Sydney is Simon's exact opposite - focused, organized and eager to make a name for herself, but also too busy parenting her father, which she'd resent if he wasn't so brilliant at what he does. Joining them in the firm are the dashing and talented Zach; art director Andrew, who's as hard-working as he is neurotic; and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren. With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire, and it looks like they are definitely buying what these crazy ones are selling.
I caught the repeat airing of the premier episode last night and actually enjoyed this I do admit to really being a fan of Robin Williams' talent both in dramatic and comedic roles. Nice to see him back weekly on a network comedy. Sarah Michelle Gellar seems well cast in the role of his business-partner/daughter. James Wolk? Love him and the outtake scene during the closing credits was hilarious! He was one of my favorites on the short lived Political Animals and the barely-given-a-chance Lonestar... I also liked him a lot on Mad Men. Nice to see Hamish Linklater again too - I remember him from The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Anyone else watching this one?
