Geoff Stults talks to HitFix's Daniel Fienberg about his new series on Fox, "The Finder" he discusses the shows pilot, and working with his co star Michael Clarke Duncan, and taking the show in a more comedic direction than "Bones"
After its introduction last spring as a backdoor pilot in an episode of "Bones," FOX's "The Finder" has undergone a bit of an overhaul, with new characters and new dynamics.
One thing that remains in place is Geoff Stults, tapping into a rarely utilized goofball vein to play preternaturally gifted war vet Walter. It's not that the "Happy Town" and "October Road" veteran had never done comedy before, but there's a welcome looseness to Stults' "Finder" performance.
Some of that looseness pops up in the interview I did with Stults back in September, in which we talk about his "Magnum meets Fletch" interpretation of the title character, the changes from the original pilot and working opposite an even taller co-star in Michael Clarke Duncan.
"The Finder" premieres on Thursday (Jan. 12) night on FOX.
