Piranha 3DD actor Christopher Lloyd (wasn't he in Back to the Future, too?) will return to the small screen for ABC's John Leguizamo–starring pilot Only Fools and Horses. Based on a British series, the comedy revolves around "the misadventures of two streetwise brothers, Del (Leguizamo) and Rodney (Dustin Ybarra), and their aging grandfather (Lloyd) as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires." Hopefully this show deploys the 73-year-old Lloyd as well as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia utilizes its sage, Danny DeVito, and hopefully this show is also awesome.
