Beau Bridges trucking to 'Rockford Files'
The Emmy-nominated Beau Bridges will join the David Shore-produced revamp of "Rockford Files," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
He joins the previously cast Dermot Mulroney, who plays P.I. Jim Rockford, and Alan Tudyk.
Bridges is Rocky, Rockford's dad and a truck driver who's pretty helpful, but tends to offer unsolicited advice.
In the original 1970s series starring James Garner, Noah Beery, Jr. played the role of Rocky.
Bridges has had a healthy film and TV career that includes "Norma Rae," "The Fabulous Baker Boys" and "Max Payne" on the big screen and the "Stargate" franchise, a guest run on "My Name Is Earl" and numerous telepics on the small screen.
