Bamber will play Caolan, an extremely focused crime scene detective. He joins the recently cast Stockard Channing.
Stockard Channing was the first actor signed to the project last week. Micahel Rymer is set to direct the pilot.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am by this news. I had my suspicions in recent weeks this would happen, but no conclusive word. There is a great deal of respect and admiration between Ron and Jamie which makes me feel this is a great project for Jamie to get back on American TV. And it seems Jamie's time spent on Law & Order: UK served as good preparation for the role. ;) If I find out more, I will let you all know.
