It’s getting really hard for me to make fun of Walker, Texas Ranger. Why? Because the cast is just out of this world amazing.
The show, which will air on The CW, is a reboot of the classic. It stars Jared Padalecki as Cordell Walker, who is described as, “a man finding his way back to his family while investigating crime in the state’s most elite unit. [The] broken widower and father of two returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years for a high profile case — only to discover that there’s even more work to be done at home.”
There has been an addition to the cast. The Gifted alum Coby Bell is joining the cast as, “Captain Larry James, a Texas Ranger Captain, a trailblazer in his division, confident, sharp as a razor. Captain James, as the only African American man in the Austin headquarters and one of only a few in the entire Ranger division, has true grit and a wry sense of humor.”
Also in the cast is former Pretty Little Liars star Keegan Allen, who will play Walker’s brother. The 100 star, Lindsey Morgan will play Walker’s new partner. She will be one of the first women in the history of the Texas Rangers. And that’s pretty fucking cool.
Is Walker, Texas Ranger a show you’re looking forward to?
