Frank Darabont, who executive produced the first season of "The Walking Dead," has cast one of the stars of "Heroes" in a starring role in his TNT drama pilot "L.A. Noir," reports Deadline.com.
“Heroes” alum Milo Ventimiglia will likely join "The Walking Dead" actor Jon Bernthal, who is in negotiations for another lead role on the TNT crime drama, the story notes.
Ventimiglia will play Ned Stax, an ex-Marine who served with Bernthal’s character during World War II but who is now a lawyer working for the mob, the story says. The project is based on the book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City," the piece adds.
