New Greg Kinnear Series "Rake" Premieres Thursday

Warwick Saint/FOX(NEW YORK) -- Greg Kinnear makes his return to television Thursday night, starring in a new Fox drama titled Rake.

The talk show host-turned-movie star plays a criminal defense lawyer named Keegan Deane, who has his share of vices and addictions, like gambling and women. 

Kinnear says of his character, "He has unfortunately some self-destructive behavior that I think is fun to watch and at the same time frustrating."

Rake, based on an Australian show of the same name, premieres at 9 p.m. Eastern time, after American Idol.
