Patrick J. Adams To Star In ‘A Legal Mind’; Mark Pellegrino Joins ‘Being Human’

MarkPellegrinoPatrickJAdamsEXCLUSIVE: Patrick J. Adams has been cast as the lead on USA Network’s pilot A Legal Mind. Meanwhile Lost and Supernatural alum Mark Pellegrino has landed a leading role on the SyFy series Being Human.

A Legal Mind centers on Mike Ross (Adams), a brilliant but unmotivated college student who gets recruited by a top Manhattan corporate law firm despite not being a lawyer. He has to use his book and street smarts and hustling skills to keep the charade. This marks a pretty nice rebound for Adams who landed the lead on the pilot for NBC’s comedy series Friends With Benefits but was recast shortly before the pilot went into production. Adams, whose pilot credits also include Good Behavior and The Dealership, is repped by Gersh, Generate and attorney Lev Ginsburg.

Based on the British series, Being Human centers on three mismatched twenty-something roommates, Aidan (Sam Witwer), a vampire, Josh, a werewolf and Sally (Meaghan Rath), a ghost. Pellegrino will play Aidan’s charismatic but menacing mentor Bishop.  Pellegrino, who played Jacob on Lost and Lucifer on Supernatural, is repped by Domain and Framework.
