David Tennant’s character may have a different name in this Fox adaptation of the UK’s powerful Broadchurch series but if this first trailer for Gracepoint is any indication, he’ll be playing the exact same role (thought the actor did hint of a story change). Except with an American accent. This time around, Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn takes over sidekick duties from Olivia Colman and the rest of the roles seem to fall exactly in line with the original series. Though a new reveal for me in this trailer was Michael Peña playing the dad of the murder victim.
If this US remake isn’t quite hitting the right notes for you, you may be happy to know ITV announced Season 2 of Broadchurch is underway with Tennant and Coleman returning. Man, that has got to be weird as an actor.
