Two J.J. Abrams series veterans have been tapped to appear in "Alcatraz," the drama pilot the "Lost" executive producer is creating for Fox, Deadline.com reports.

Jonny Coyne, who appeared in two episodes of Abrams' canceled NBC drama "Undercovers" this fall, and Jason Butler Harner, who guest starred in Abrams' "Fringe" pilot, will have roles in the new project, from Warner Bros. TV and Abrams' Bad Robot.

According to Deadline, "Alcatraz" follows the efforts of a team of FBI agents tracking down a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards. Coyne will play the warden and Harner will play his associate warden.

The two join previously cast Abrams vets Jorge Garcia and Sarah Jones in the pilot.
