Tom Arnold to Play Tom Arnold–like Person on New Show


As he waits for True Lies 2 to take shape, Tom Arnold has signed up to star in a new, as-yet-untitled CMT sitcom about a hardware-store-owning dad "seeking the empty nest and his family who is unwilling to let him have it." Arnold will play a "salt-of-the-earth kind of guy, good-hearted, eager-to-please, optimistic, but sometimes overwhelmed by the chaos around him." Seems like a stretch. [Deadline]
