If Crews inks a deal with ABC, the actor would host the second season of the game show, Deadline reports. The syndicated series is moving its filming location in an effort to cut down on the budget. Crews is also slated to appear in the second season of the Fox series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The new series will be a game show set in Las Vegas. "[Pawnography] gives viewers the change to go head-to-head with the man who knows a little bit about everything, Rick Harrison, and take home treasurable items from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop." The program documents the every day lives of the three men and Rick's father Richard at the Harrison family pawnshop.
Considering Carell's well-cultivated talent for outrageous physical shtick, it's entirely appropriate that he's executive producing and starring in the Fox program. Carell would come out onstage in a sailor outfit with a big machete, and he would stand in front of the [stage] window, with the little seam down the middle.
