Jeff Goldblum will soon be Seeing Red. The actor is in final negotiations to star in the crime-drama pilot for NBC.
Red centers on an eccentric, brilliant cop (Goldblum) with the ability to talk to dead victims, who help him solve his cases. It will be directed by Oscar-nominated Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) from a script by Graham Yost, whose credits include Band of Brothers and Boomtown.
Goldblum, most recently seen in the feature The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and in an Emmy-nominated recurring role on NBC's Will & Grace, last year won an Outer Critics Circle Award and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Drama League Award for his performance in Broadway's The Pillowman. Goldblum starred with Ben Vereen in the short-lived TV series Tenspeed and Brownshoe.
