Josh Groban goes from one Tony to another Tony!
June 10th, 2018 under Josh Groban, Netflix, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


For Josh Groban this has been the year of Tonys. He started it off by filming the Netflix show The Good Cop with Tony Danza and on that series he will be playing Tony Jr. Tonight, he is hostings The Tonys. Which is why Netflix thought it would be a good time to announce when you can stream the whole first season of The Good Cop. Mark your calendars for September 21st because that is when it will debut.

If he is not dating a Toni and releasing a song named Tony this year, then he is making a big mistake. Maybe if he did, then he would actually win one of those awards that he sang about not having tonight during Broadway’s biggest night. That and he could get married if he wanted to. Don’t you agree?

Before Judd Hirsch was happy being cab driver on Taxi, he was a defense attorney in The Law. He looks the same now as he did when he was 38 in that 1974 telemovie.

Are we sure that Tony Danza is not Josh Groban’s father?

Tony Danza is playing Josh Groban’s father on Netflix’s Good Cop. Yesterday, was their last day filming the cop drama and both men shared this photo. Now that we have seen the two of them together, they really look like father and son. They even have the same eyes. Don’t you think they look related?

Good Cop comes to the streaming service in the fall.

Tony Danza will give Josh Groban advice on how to handle women!
November 8th, 2017 under Josh Groban, Netflix, Taxi. [ Comments: 2 ]


Josh Groban is going to do something he has never done before. The singer is going to co-star in a series and not just be a guest star on one. The Tony nominee will play Tony Danza’s son named Tony in a Netflix show called, Tony, no wait, it is actually called The Good Cop. It just seemed like a logical name since everyone else is going by Tony including Tony Danza.

Anyways, Netflix describes his character Tony Jr as, “an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. Tony Jr is son to Tony Sr, a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules, played by Tony Danza. In The Good Cop, a new 10 episode one-hour dramedy series, this ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Tony Sr offers his overly cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.”

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for this show to debut next year because Danza has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw him in a little show called Taxi when I was kid. When it comes to the Groobs, it will be interesting to see him in comedic role on episodic series. He proved he has the chops for it on The Crazy Ones and Ally McBeal.

No word if he will sing on the show, but I am sure they will find a way to make that happen. It seems to be mandatory because he always manages to get a note in there in some way like on this past Friday’s Crazy Ex Girlfriend. Shh, don’t tell anyone that is a musical show. Sadly, this one is not.

UPDATE: Groban seemed to hint on Twitter that he will have to shave his beard for the part. Which is a good thing because it will make the two actors look more like father and son. They have the same eyes, so it will be nice to see if they also have the same cheeks and chins. That and I hate beards.

Tony Danza will play another Tony!
June 19th, 2017 under Netflix, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


Tony Danza has starred in several television series as a character named Tony like Taxi, Who’s the Boss?, Hudson Street, The Tony Danza Show and will once again be known as such on Netflix’s new series The Good Cop that was announced today. This time the boxer/taxi driver/baseball player/manny/detective/sports writer will be known as Tony Sr.

According to Netflix’s press release, it is about “a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. This ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.” No word who will be playing his son, but I am rooting for Josh Peck.

The 10 episode police show is created by Andy Breckman, the man who brought us Monk. I have been missing a show as brilliant as Monk and Tony Danza playing a Tony, so I am beyond excited for The Good Cop.

Now can we discuss why Tony Danza has played a Tony, not once, not twice, not thrice, not but five times on television? This is something that keeps me up late at night as I watch my all-time favorite show Taxi for the millionth time. Is it in his contract? Does he only respond to Tony? Does he want a Tony, so he thinks if he is known as Tony he will win one? He just likes his name? What do you think is the reason?
