Kyle Chandler Reacts To The News About An 'Early Edition' Reboot

Kyle Chandler is reacting to the news that Early Edition is being rebooted.

The 56-year-old actor got his big break with the television series, which centered on Gary, who mysteriously starts to receive a copy of the Chicago Sun-Times one day in advance. Gifted with special knowledge about the future, Gary tries to use what he learns from the newspaper to prevent terrible events every day.

Early Edition, which ran for four seasons, is now being rebooted with a female lead by CBS.

In a new interview with Collider, Kyle opened up about what he thought of the news.

He revealed that he heard about the reboot through a friend who sent it to him and he “started laughing. If anything was gonna show up on my phone, it wouldn’t have been that. I start laughing. It’s a strange world. It didn’t really surprise me or anything.”

Kyle then opened up about what the show meant and taught him.

β€œThe biggest thing I learned from that show was, I used to take the script and they would allow me to make changes. I would fax those changes to L.A., and they would fax back, or let me know what was okay or not. In that way, it worked out very well because I was able to learn how to work scripts and work scenes,” he shared. “In my mind, I was directing, editing, writing and acting, and I had involvement. I was involved in the process, and I realized how important that is, to get everyone involved in the process together, so they have that ownership. That was a great show.”

As to what it meant for his career, Kyle shared that Early Edition was “one of the first shows that we almost got to a hundred [episodes]. That was back when you were doing 22 episodes a year, and it was hard work, especially that show because it was wintertime.”

“We were using all those bridges late at night. We’d do a lot of Fraturdays,” he recalled. “In the business, that’s when you work from Friday night until Saturday morning, but you’re still going back to work Monday morning, early. My first daughter, Sydney, had just been born when I got that job, so that was huge for me, as a young man and as a family man. That was really important. And it was a great experience.”
