EXCLUSIVE: 24 alum James Morrison and Broadway actress Kerry O’Malley have been cast in the A&E drama pilot Those Who Kill. The project, an adaptation of a Danish format, revolves around police detective Catherine Jensen (Chloe Sevigny) and forensic profiler Thomas Schaffer (James D’Arcy), who possess a deep understanding of the serial killers they hunt. Morrison will play Detective Captain Frank Bisgaard, Jensen’s tough, no-nonsense superior. O’Malley, repped by Evolution and Professional Artists, will play the precinct’s forensic pathologist and Catherine’s best friend. Those Who Kill reunites Morrison with 24 producer 20th TV, whose cable division Fox21 produces the pilot. Morrison, repped by Stone Manners Salners and manager Mitch Clem, is coming off a major recurring arc on ABC’s Revenge where he played killer-for-hire Gordon Murphy.
Robert Bailey Jr. has joined the cast of NBC’s hourlong pilot After Hours. The Sony TV project revolves around the graveyard shift in the ER at San Antonio Medical Center. Bailey, repped by Greene & Associates and manager Bobbie Edrick, will play Paul, a young, eager but squeamish resident at the hospital.
