Ted Lasso’s Roy Kent actor, Brett Goldstein, recently signed an exclusive overall deal with Warner Bros. to develop and produce new TV projects.
Ted Lasso breakout star Brett Goldstein has signed an exclusive overall deal with Warner Bros. to develop and produce new TV projects. Best known for playing the character of Roy Kent, a gruff but lovable footballer in Apple’s hit comedy series, Goldstein quickly became a fan favorite amongst Ted Lasso viewers. The Emmy-winning actor also serves as a writer on the show, in addition to being a co-executive producer alongside Bill Lawrence and Jason Sudeikis.
Goldstein announced the news in a press release on Monday, sharing that Warner Bros. has tapped him to develop, create and produce new TV projects for the studio. As reported by THR, the deal covers his producing and writing services and comes on the heels of two previous pacts he signed with Apple/Warner Bros. for his acting and writing work on Ted Lasso. Goldstein’s full quote can be read below:
“Much like the character Joe Gillis in Sunset Blvd, I’ve always dreamed of having my own parking space at Warners, and it’s extraordinary to see that dream come true. I do, however, hope the comparison ends there and I don’t wind up dead in a pool having been shot by an insane older movie star. As long as that doesn’t happen, I’m very excited and extremely honored to be embarking on new and exciting adventures with the excellent brothers* at Warners. (*Not all the people that work there are related. Apparently.)”
Goldstein’s new deal with Warner Bros. is just one of many upcoming projects the actor/writer has on the horizon. With work already underway on season 3 of Ted Lasso, it’s safe to say fans are excited to see Roy back on-screen alongside Ted, Keeley, and the AFC Richmond players. While Sudeikis, who plays the titular lead in the show, has been open about only having a three-season plan in mind for the series, it wouldn’t be surprising if Goldstein steps in to help write or star in future seasons or spinoff shows. Aside from his work on Ted Lasso, Goldstein is also collaborating with co-creator Lawrence to write and executive produce Shrinking, a comedy series for Warner Bros. that earned a straight-to-series order at Apple. It’ll be interesting to see other projects Goldstein will attach his name to in the coming months, and if many of these TV series will be related to Ted Lasso.
