Swayze Heading Back To Work

PATRICK SWAYZE is taking time out of cancer treatment to star in a new U.S. TV show.
The 55-year-old actor, currently battling cancer of the pancreas, will travel to Chicago, Illinois this summer to shoot The Beast, after the show was commissioned by America's A+E network.
Swayze - who will play an undercover FBI agent - says, "I have searched for quite a long time to find a character that is this multi-layered, unpredictable and downright entertaining, as well as a project this current and cutting edged.
"Chicago is an amazing, untapped city. I can't wait to get to work on this."
Swayze is being treated at California's Stanford University Medical Center after he was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year (08).
