Having already shown a surprising flair for comedy, taking on “the jester of Tortuga” Jack Sparrow, Erin Brockovich, Forrest Gump and Scarface in “Saturday Night Live’s” terrific “Jack Sparrow” digital short, Michael Bolton is now ready to go full time with his acting career.

The singer is attached to star in a new ABC sitcom in development called “Michael Bolton’s Daughter is Destroying My Life,” according to Deadline.com.

The show tells the story of a “naïve young writer who moves to the big city and ends up taking a job heading social media for singer-songwriter Michael Bolton. The writer quickly learns she has her hands full with Bolton and the wild-child daughter he has recently taken in,”‘ according to the report.
