Who Knew Damon Wayans Resembled Colin Cowherd?

When CBS announced last November they were developing a sitcom on the life of Colin Cowherd, it would have been a safe bet to assume the actor tapped to play the ESPN radio host would have the same skin color.

Wrong.

Damon Wayans (!) has finalized a deal to play Nick Herd in the multi-camera comedy pilot that’s set at a sports radio station. Andy Cadiff will direct the project and Cowherd will serve as a producer.

Wayans is best known for his roles on My Wife and Kids and In Living Color. Maybe if I squint at the right angle, I can make out the physical similarities between Wayans and Cowherd.

I was already skeptical of this project because of the Cowherd factor, but now I would be stunned if it gets a green light.
