Tonight, The Old Man’s release date and time are finally here. And most Thomas Perry fans (and folks who love Jeff Bridges) may have already known that. This new series, which finds Bridges playing former CIA agent Dan Chase (who comes from Perry’s books) trying to live a peaceful life away from the agency, looks like many a folks’ ideal show.
The Old Man, which could have been titled “The Old Man’s Still Got It,” pits Bridges against an old acquaintance: Harold Harper (John Lithgow). Now the FBI’s Assistant Director for Counterintelligence, Harper shares a complex history with Chase, so he was the perfect one to call in. Possibly because he knows that Chase won’t be taken down so easily.
He’s got one of his up-and-coming agents Angela Adams (Alia Shawkat, in a role to make us forget the name Maeby Fünke) along for the ride. Oh, and Harper’s also recruited CIA Special Agent Raymond Waters (E.J. Bonilla) for the hunt. But when those three aren’t enough? Well, it’s already been revealed that a ringer named Julian Carson (played by The Wire’s Gbenga Akinnagbe) is contracted.
Chase has one ally in this fight, as he’s renting a room from a woman named Zoe McDonald (Amy Brenneman), whose trust issues are still recovering following a chaotic divorce.
Below, we’ve got everything you need to watch The Old Man online. Check out the trailer, too:
