Ed Burns Will Play a Sad Investment Banker


Remember when Ed Burns made The Brothers McMullen and was supposed to be the next George Clooney or something? And then he appeared in some straight-to-DVD movies and Entourage and disappeared. Well, now he's back in an HBO pilot from Entourage producer/creator Doug Ellin. The show's called 40, and it's about a bunch of fortysomething guys who have to deal with being middle-aged. Burns will play an unemployed investment banker, married with kids, who once held a lucrative job with Bear Stearns. Ripped from the headlines! [Deadline]
