Denis Leary revives ‘Rescue Me’ with friend Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox says the timing was perfect when Denis Leary asked him last year to star in a five-episode arc of Rescue Me as a bad-tempered, drug-abusing paraplegic.

"I was just finishing a book about optimism and happy thoughts (Always Looking Up), and he comes to me with this character, and I said, 'That's exactly what I need to do.' "

Leary and Fox are longtime pals, and both share a love of hockey. But Fox, who has Parkinson's disease, has been scarce on TV lately, apart from guest roles on Boston Legal andScrubs. He has trouble standing still.
