Skeet Ulrich has been tapped as the male lead in the CBS drama pilot Anatomy Of Violence, written and executive produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary and directed by Mark Pellington. Inspired by the nonfiction book The Anatomy Of Violence: The Biological Roots Of Crime by Adrian Raine, the 20th TV-produced drama centers on Raines (Ulrich), an unshaven and disheveled, something of a maverick FBI Criminal Psychiatrist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with a young female detective with whom he shares a conflicted past. Ulrich, repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment, joins recently cast David Harewood.
