EXCLUSIVE: Southland co-star Shawn Hatosy has joined the cast of CBS‘ drama pilot Reckless, directed by Catherine Hardwicke from a script by Dana Stevens. The sultry legal show set in Charleston, South Carolina, centers on Jamie, a gorgeous Yankee litigator, and Roy, a Southern City Attorney (Cam Gigandet), who struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal. Hatosy, who plays Det. Sammy Bryant on Southland, will play another police detective, bad-boy Trey. For Hatosy, the casting is in second position to Southland, which is currently airing its fifth season. The critically praised cop show, which originated on NBC, has never been a big ratings performer and is again on the bubble, but it has been a prestige series for TNT, which has not made a decision on its future. Hatosy, repped by IFA and H2F Entertainment joins fellow Southland star Ben McKenzie, who also booked a CBS drama pilot, The Advocates.
Dexter co-star James Remar has been cast as leads in NBC’s pilot Hatfields & McCoys, a take on the infamous feud set in present-day Pittsburgh. The startling death of the McCoy patriarch re-ignites the feud between the two legendary families, unleashing decades of resentment. Remar, repped by Gersh and Lighthouse Entertainment, plays the powerful and very wealthy Joe Hatfield, estranged husband to Mary Hatfield (Rebecca De Mornay). He is currently filming the eighth and unofficially final season of Dexter (Remar’s deal is up at the end of the season), recently shot indie Horns and is seen playing dual roles in Django Unchained.
