The Ausiello Files yesterday broke the news that Dermot Mulroney will play Jim Rockford on NBC's Rockford Files remake. Mulroney is best known as Julia Roberts' pal in MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING and has also appeared in ZODIAC and YOUNG GUNS. This will be his first regular television gig.
Rockford Files was one of my favorite series, and I often watched it with my Dad.. and usually discussed episodes. The series ran from 1974 to 1980.

It will be interesting to see how this production goes. James Garner was Jim Rockford!
