charliecoxCBS and CBS Studios really believe in Charlie Cox‘s TV leading man potential. After casting the British actor as the lead of the drama pilot The Ordained last season, the network and the studio have tapped the Boardwalk Empire alum as the male lead of another drama pilot,  executive produced by John Cusack. The untitled project is set in the world of Wall Street power and money. Cox plays Jackson, a smart, sophisticated, Wall Street hedge fund trader, who served his country in Iraq, and possesses integrity and the desire to do good. The pilot was written by Taylor Elmore  and Ben Cavell from a story the two co-wrote with Cusack and Kevin McCabe. The four executive produce with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
