There are good cops. There are bad cops. Then there are these cops: one of each! The stars of Netflix’s new show, “The Good Cop,” are turning the clichéd buddy cop show on its head by making it a family affair.
Josh Groban (as Tony Jr.): “You bribed a guy to get me on the ethics panel?”
Tony Danza (as Tony Sr.): “Yeah. It cost me 50 bucks.”
Tony Danza and Josh Groban are redefining the phrase “good cop, bad cop.”
Tony Danza (as Tony Sr.): “You’re the detective that did seven years upstate. I was kind of a naughty cop.”
In “The Good Cop,” Tony Danza plays a disgraced former detective. Josh Groban plays his son, the most straight-laced, by-the-book cop on the force.
Together they’re a yin and yang that we don’t see in a lot of buddy cop shows.
Tony Danza: “That magic thing that happens when you get a couple of guys together or an ensemble, and it works.”
Josh and Tony hung out with Deco to talk about their arresting show.
Josh Groban: “We just clicked instantly. We knew that these next five months were gonna be just the time of our lives.”
Geraldine Leer (as DeRosa’s lawyer): “It’s very sexual.”
Josh Groban (as Tony Jr.): “No, haha.”
Each episode stands on its own, like when papa brings someone to his kids’ crime scene.
Josh Groban (as Tony Jr.): “You can’t bring a civilian to an active crime scene.”
Tony Danza (as Tony Sr.): “Come on son, she’s not exactly a civilian. Look at her.”
And if you watch the entire season, something will tie ’em all together.
Tony Danza: “Weaved through the whole script is this subplot of the death of his mother and my wife and our constant trying to get a beat on this guy.”
Josh Groban: “A hit and run.”
Tony Danza: “It was a hit and run and the guy didn’t slow down.”
So at the heart of the show, it’s a story of a father and son.
Tony Danza: “That’s about as much as I wanna say.”
Josh Groban: “It’s an emotional thread that carries through.”
But mostly — it’s law and disorder!
Tony Danza (as Tony Sr.): “I taught him everything I know.”
Josh Groban (as Tony Jr.): “Except right and wrong. That I learned on my own.”
“The Good Cop” drops on Netflix this Friday for your weekend bingeing pleasure.
