"A Legal Mind," a pilot for USA Network, and "Being Human," a Syfy series, have cast leads, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
Patrick J. Adams will get the role in the USA pilot while Mark Pellegrino has been tapped for the Syfy show, according to the report.
Adams will play Mike Ross, a slacker college student who gets a job at a top law firm even though he’s not an attorney, the story says. The casting marks a rebound for the actor, who had nabbed the lead on NBC’s "Friends With Benefits" but was recast just before the pilot went into production, Andreeva writes.
Pellegrino, who played Jacob on "Lost" and Lucifer on "Supernatural, will play a mentor to the vampire character on "Being Human," the story says. The series, based on a British show by the same name, focuses on a vampire, werewolf and ghost who make mismatched roommates.
