AMC is dipping its toe into the comedy pool with a scripted comedy pilot called ‘We Hate Paul Revere’ and they have enlisted the comedic talents of Ron Livingston to give life to the lead role. I have a soft spot for Livingston, so I naturally feel that any role he is cast in is an excellent choice by the casting directors. Livingston is one of those rare actors to me who can pull off the humour of ‘Office Space’ perfectly and still bring an amazing dramatic performance in shows like ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and ‘Band of Brothers.’
‘We Hate Paul Revere,’ set in colonial Boston, will follow the story of brothers Hugh and Ebenezer Moody as they try to compete for recognition while being stacked up against bigger names like Paul Revere. Livingston is joining an already great cast, which includes Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner as the Moody brothers. AMC will begin filming ‘We Hate Paul Revere’ this summer in Los Angeles.
