Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin to Star in New Netflix Comedy from Chuck Lorre
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin will team for a new Netflix comedy THE KOMINSKY METHOD from 'Big Bang Theory's Chuck Lorre. This marks Lorre's second straight-to-series comedy at the streaming network.
Douglas is set to portray Sandy Kominsky, described as "an actor who years ago had a brief fling with success and is now a revered Hollywood acting coach." Arkin takes on the role of his long-suffering agent and friend, Norman.
Lorre tells THR, "I wrote a script and we sent it to them and they said yes. I'm so excited to work with people that I've admired for 45-50 years. Streets of San Francisco is the first time I saw Michael. Alan Arkin in The Russians are Coming, The In-Laws ... I didn't expect them both to sign on. Douglas plays a guy named Sandy Kominsky who is a Hollywood acting coach with a little class in Hollywood at one of those BLACK BOX classrooms and a lot of young students. He had a brief flirtation with fame a long, long time ago but those days are gone."<
