am i blue Featured In Lights Out On FX

"am i blue gets cameo on
FX's new show, Lights Out"

One of my mobiles made it to Hollywood... or, um, New York... or, er, your TV...

Catherine McCormack and Stacy Keach are set to co-star opposite Holt McCallany on FX's upcoming drama series "Lights Out" and now so too is my little mobile, am i blue!

The show's set designer recently commissioned the mobile. Now, I'm just hoping am i blue doesn't get a big ego and think he's better than everybody else.

From everything I've read the series looks like it's going to be pretty stellar - both in star power and storyline.

Here's the storyline:

"Lights Out," from Fox TV Studios and FX Prods., centers on Patrick "Lights" Leary (McCallany), an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to support his wife (McCormack), a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and three daughters after his fighting days are over.

Diagnosed with a neurological disorder called pugilistic dementia, he takes a job as a legbreaker, collecting on unpaid gambling debts."

I have to say I was pretty excited to learn that the lead character not only is a legbreaker for the mob (something I've always aspired to), but his last name is also "Leary." Perhaps my other lifelong dreams of being a washed-up heavyweight fighter can come true after all.

I can't wait to see where the mobile (or its stunt double - I sent two just in case one was injured during an action shot) will show up in the series, but if that all-star cast weren't enough, FX can count on at least one loyal fan before the series even begins.

If you want to see if you can spot the mobile you'll have to wait... Lights Out is slated to air beginning in Fall 2010 or early 2011.


  1. Mark... congrats on making it to the big screen! I had two paintings show up in that movie WILD HOGS a couple of years ago...and I thought it was cool, but my folks thought it was best of luck to you and your guest appearance...
