'No Ordinary Family' scoop: Michael Chiklis sings!

Michael-Chiklis-BandImage Credit: ITVNot only does Michael Chiklis star in and co-executive produce ABC’s No Ordinary Family, he helps with the soundtrack, too! Fans of the ex-Vic Mackey may want to tune into the March 1 episode, which will feature a single recorded by the actor and his eponymous band.

Dubbed Til I Come Home, the sentimental tune will play over a tender moment between Kay Panabaker, who plays Chiklis’ daughter Daphne, and her boyfriend, though the song was actually written and sung by the actor to pay tribute to the overseas troops and his cousin’s service. (Sample lyrics: It’s so lonely here without you … I know I have to keep my faith…I will pray to God you won’t be very long…)

“I’ve been a musician my whole life,” Chiklis told EW exclusively. “I’m really enjoying making music again and this is a real band! Also, this was written and recorded in my house! This is not a product of the machine … it’s just heartfelt, homegrown music. More to come too.”

The truly obsessed can buy it on I-Tunes.

    He’ll have more time to make albums once the show is canned. Should be any day now.

    There is no need to be snarky, “LOL”. I’ve heard Chiklis’s song and it’s actually pretty good.
    Gotta love Vik Mackey being patriotic!

    We like Mike! His show is one of the few great family shows on TV and our clan loves it!!! Bring it on Michael. Lookin forward to more great things.

    The “Michael Chiklis Band”?!?!? Really?? What the what!

    There is so much wrong with NOF and this shows why. It’s a vanity project for Chiklis that has gone awry. I loved the idea of the show and liked it when it first started but it has just gone so far off the rails that I can’t support it anymore. Its stories are all over the place and plot holes are so rampant. This story is the straw that broke the camel’s back.

    I haven’t watched this show, but I just wanted to go off topic, who else wants Vic Mackey showing up on Sons of Anarchy? I know I do!

    I love Julie Benz so I want to like this show, but I just can’t.

    They should have done it as a Fantastic Four series, with JB as Sue Storm, Chiklis as Thing again, the child actors as Franklin and Valeria Richards, Stephen Collins as Dr. Doom, Autumn Reeser as Alicia Masters, and two new actors as Reed Richards and Johnny Storm, respectively. Would’ve been SO MUCH BETTER.

    NOF is one of the few shows my family never misses. It’s a little cheesy and not perfect, but it’s good entertainment. Kind of the same quality as Transformers 2, and there were quite a few people who liked that one too. Hope ABC gives them a chance with a second season.

    Mostly, superheroes in comics are written fully in control of their powers and fully understanding their powers. They’re also written for a world where such powers are commonplace.

    This show tries to explore what it would be like in the “real” world if people developed abilities. The problem is that it misses a little too frequently. Take last night’s occurrence over which Jim Powell agonized. That’s the kind of story that could drag out over a few episodes, but instead they tied it up with a neat bow and even found a way to make him not feel too bad about it. Poor storytelling.

    I wish the show success, but it sounds like it’s about to jump the shark (assuming it hasn’t already done so), and I doubt it will return.
