But now we know where we will see him return to television for good.
The actor has been cast as a lead in the ABC pilot thirty(something(else), a sequel to Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick’s beloved 1987-91 drama series.
thirtysomething(else) will follow an ensemble of new faces playing the grown-up children of the original cast. They are now the “thirtysomethings”.
Returning original cast members include, Ken Olin (Michael Steadman), Mel Harris (Hope Murdoch), Timothy Busfield (Elliot Weston) and Patty Wettig (Nancy Weston). The will be reprising their characters in supporting roles.
So, who will Wood play?
Leo Steadman, Hope and Michael’s son and Janey’s brother. Good-looking and charming (not unlike his father), Leo is so intent on becoming a “big deal” like his father that he skips steps along the way. His talent and grand ideas are tripped up by his lack of focus and follow-through.
