Eric-RobertsImage Credit: Jason LaVeri/FilmMagic.comHollywood veteran Eric Roberts has been cast in ABC’s dance drama pilot Grace.

The story follows dysfunctional family drama set in the world of professional dance and it’s from Grey’s Anatomy writer Krista Vernoff along with producers Vernoff, Carrie Ann Inaba and Flody Suarez. 

Roberts will play patriarch Michael Grace in the show. So You Think You Can Dance‘s Mia Michaels is on board as choreographer. Between Glee and Black Swan, not too surprising a dance drama would make it into the pilot season mix, right?

    Sounds like a giant pile of suck.

    I guess this means he will be leaving Y&R. :-(

  • craig

    has more in common with DWTS than Black Swan or even Glee. It’s not a dark ballet movie or a singing show

  • anonymous

    Eric, is this the only offer you got after Celebrity ReHab ?

  • Heather

    Good for Eric! Nice to see someone in recovery progressing so well…best of luck in his future endeavours.

  • Dee Jones

    This sounds terrible. Y&R should`ve gave him a contract, he had potential.

  • Omar

    A dysfunctional family set in the world of dance with dance choreography sounds like a legendary faliure we will be talking about years to come.

  • Darcy

    Huge fan hope it works out for him…I’d rather “see” the show before bashing and trashing.and criticizing.

    Boy, has he aged a lot lately. I wish he could get a role more like the one he played in “Raggedy Man.” He was so sexy and lovable in that movie.

    Thank you so much for that run-on sentence.

    Way to go Eric! Don’t listen to those “Negative Nellies” out there. The only way they can feel good about themselves is to put other people down.
