Robert Wisdom (Nashville) is set to co-star opposite Paul Giamatti in Hoke, FX’s darkly comedic drama pilot based on Charles Willeford’s series of novels. Written by Scott Frank, who will direct and showrun the pilot, Hoke is a story of mid-life crisis and murder that features the hardboiled and possibly insane homicide detective Hoke Moseley (Giamatti) in pre-chic Miami circa 1985. Wisdom, repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and KLWGN, will play Hoke’s boss Major Brownley, the head of the Homicide Squad. He’s known Hoke for a very long time and knows all of Hoke’s strengths, weaknesses, eccentricities and prejudices. Wisdom just shot a guest star/recurring role on Syfy’s 12 Monkeys pilot, based on the Terry Gilliam movie, playing Jeremy, a former CIA operative who’s content to apply his talents in the kitchen. He is filming his fifth episode of NBC’s Chicago PD as Commander Perry and will next be seen in Universal’s The Loft.
