‘The Michael J. Fox Show’ casts Chris Christie to play … Chris Christie

Michael J. FoxSay what you will about Chris Christie’s politics, but the outspoken Governor of New Jersey has shown a knack for entertainment, even at times on unintentional levels. He gave a memorable performance on “Saturday Night Live” last season taking digs at himself after Hurricane Sandy, and now he is venturing into the family comedy world by confirming (through a Huffington Post report) that he will guest-star as himself on “The Michael J. Fox Show” this coming season.

While there is no word yet as to just how Christie is going to factor into the show’s primary equation right now, this is not something that is going to be particularly difficult to figure out. As for why, the answer is simple: Fox’s character is a major news anchor, which to us means that Christie is likely going to be some sort of person that he ends up interviewing.

Given that Christie is loud, there could be some great moments in here if Michael does end up disagreeing with him on a topic. Regardless, it’s a pretty nice get for the NBC show, which is going to premiere on Thursday, September 26. There is a great deal of confidence swirling around the show right now, with one of the biggest reasons for that being that Fox is already a large star, and NBC already gave the show a full 22 episodes.
