EXCLUSIVE: CBS: Miami alum Adam Rodriguez is back at CBS with a co-starring role in the network’s drama pilot Reckless, from CSI: Miami producer CBS TV Studios. The Charleston, SC-set project centers on Jamie (Anna Wood), a gorgeous Yankee litigator, and Roy (Cam Gigandet), a Southern City Attorney, who struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal. Rodriguez plays Preston, a well-respected police detective who works on the Charleston PD alongside Trey (Shawn Hatosy). Rodriguez is the second top alum of the CSI franchise to book a CBS pilot this year along with Marg Helgenberger of the mothership CSI series, who co-stars in Intelligence. Rodriguez, repped by Global Artists and A Management, was recently in Magic Mike and will next be seen in Lovesick.
Adam Rodriguez and Rachael Harris have joined the cast of Lovesick. The duo will star with Matt LeBlanc, Ali Larter, Chevy Chase and Kristin Johnson in the indie romantic comedy. Lovesick tells the tale of Charlie Darby, a sweet high school principal who goes off the rails whenever he falls in love. Rodriguez will play Jason, the married best friend to LeBlanc’s Charlie character. Harris will play Roberta, an aggressive date of Charlie’s. Luke Mathaney, who won an Oscar in 2011 for his short film God of Love, is directing Lovesick. Dean Young wrote the screenplay and is an executive producer on the film. Michael Roiff and Travus Pope are producing, with Rachel Berk and Josh Goldstein co-producing. Lovesick is currently filming in Los Angeles. Rodriguez currently appears in Steve Soderbourgh’s Magic Mike. Before jumping to the big screen, the actor was best known for his role of Eric Delko as on CBS’ now cancelled CSI: Miami for 10 seasons. Harris has starred in The Diary of A Wimpy Kid franchise as well as appeared in The Hangover, The Soloist and Natural Selection. Harris is repped by UTA, managers Principato-Young Entertainment and attorney Rick Genow. Rodriguez is repped by Global Artists Agency and managed by A Management Company.
As predicted here, Warner Bros completed its acquisition of domestic rights on the Steven Soderbergh-directed Magic Mike, which stars Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum in a Saturday Night Fever-type coming-of-age drama about a young exotic dancer who is schooled by a veteran of the trade. The studio just dated the film for release on June 29, 2012. Soderbergh and Tatum funded the film, and FilmNation is selling offshore territories at AFM. The script was written by Tatum’s Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin, and they are producing with Nick Wechsler and Gregory Jacobs.
The film, based on the world Tatum observed when he was a male stripper, has a beefcake cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez and Kevin Nash. Warner Bros recently released Soderbergh’s Contagion, and is prepping his next film, The Man From UNCLE.
EXCLUSIVE: CSI: Miami co-star Adam Rodriguez is the latest hunk to board Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike. The coming-of-age story revolves around the relationship between a veteran dancer (Channing Tatum) and his protege (Alex Pettyfer). Like Tatum, Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and True Blood‘s Joe Mangianello, Rodriguez will play a male stripper. Additionally, Rodriguez, repped by Global Artists and A Management, has booked a small role on Chris Nolan’s next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises.
