NEW YORK, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- James Roday, who stars in USA
Network's new hit show PSYCH, received a "Best Actor in a Comedy or
Musical" nomination for the International Press Academy's 11th Annual
Roday is in good company. His competition includes Steve Carrell ("The
Office"), James Spader ("Boston Legal"), Ted Danson ("Help Me Help You"),
Stephen Colbert ("The Colbert Report") and Jason Lee ("My Name is Earl").
PSYCH, which premiered on USA in July to critical and ratings acclaim,
stars Roday ("The Dukes of Hazzard") as young police consultant Shawn
Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct
detectives think he's psychic -- at least that's what he lets them believe.
Series also stars Dule Hill ("The West Wing") as Shawn's best friend and
reluctant sidekick Gus and Corbin Bernsen ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," "L.A.
Law") as Shawn's disapproving father, who ironically was the one who honed
his son's "observation" skills as a child. Also featured are Timothy
Omundson ("Judging Amy," "Deadwood"), Maggie Lawson ("Crumbs," "Inside
Schwartz") and Kirsten Nelson ("Everwood").
