Actor Neal McDonough created a few waves last week when he told reporters that he’d be interested in reprising his role as Wyatt Cain from the popular mini-series “Tin Man.”
“I had the great fortune to play Wyatt Cain in Tin Man, and that could have been my favorite performance of anything I’ve ever done,” McDonough said. “That was a character that was really close to me. … I would certainly like to back and visit a guy like Wyatt Cain again, whether it’s the series, which we’ve talked about, or just to explore. … My characters, the characters that I like to play, are in the gray area. I think we all live in a gray area. … So to go back and play someone on the nicer side of life, I think that’s the next thing I’m going to do.”
Fans of the mini-series immediately began to speculate that a series order could be on the horizon, along the lines of “Battlestar Galactica,” which also started as mini-series and then became a regular series.
However, fans shouldn’t hold their breath on a green light coming any time soon. SciFi executive vice president of original programming Mark Stern said that while discussions have taken place, there is no order yet for a series.
