Anthony LaPaglia to star in Fox drama pilot ‘Boomerang’

Anthony LaPaglia

The Fox drama pilot about a family of assassins has finalized a deal with Without a Trace actor Anthony LaPaglia. The pilot, called Boomerang, is a typical story about a close knit family trying to run a successful business together – except their business is much more violent than most. The family are a group of hired assassins who work for the United States government.

LaPaglia will star opposite of Felicity Huffman in the Fox drama, which is being written by Davey Holmes (Pushing Daisies, Awake) and directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow).  John Wells Productions and Warner Bros TV are both involved with the project. LaPaglia will play the role of ex-CIA member Bill Hamilton, an experienced assassin who has a bit of a neurotic side and takes his job extremely seriously. Huffman will play his wife, Margie Hamilton, a skilled and swift professional killer who has been known to track down and dispose of a terrorist in a single afternoon and be home in time to make a nice pot roast. The Hamilton clan is rounded off by their two adult sons (played by Michael Stahl-David and Patrick Heusinger) who have joined the government and are following in their assassin parents' stealthy footsteps.

Do you think you will tune in to watch the Hamilton family on Fox?

Ah, good old fashioned family values. Kind of like the Walton's with bombs, poison, and snipers. Well, they say the family that kills together.... no wait, that was Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Never mind...
