Veteran of 'Heroes,' 'Alias' and 'Felicity' Gets His Own Show

An actor who is familiar to viewers for his roles on "Alias," "Heroes" and "Felicity," has been cast as the lead in the A&E pilot "Big Mike," reports

The actor is Greg Grunberg, who will play the title character in the cop drama, a plus-size San Diego cop. Like another TV Mike--from CBS's "Mike & Molly"--the character struggles with his weight as well as his romantic life.

A&E scored its first success in series drama with last season's "The Glades."
