Cuba Gooding Jr., who won an Oscar in 1997 for “Jerry Maguire," will star in an upcoming pilot. If the project gets a series order, it would mark Gooding’s first regular series role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Gooding will star in an upcoming Fox legal drama from well-known TV show creator Greg Berlanti called "Guilty."
According to the article, “’Guilty’ centers on William ‘Billy’ Remz (Gooding), an ethically questionable defense attorney who has been stripped of his license to practice law after being falsely convicted of fraud. He uses unorthodox techniques to solve cases he’s been banned from handling — and exacts revenge upon those who set him up.”
Also appearing in the pilot are Eva Amurri Martino and Julian Morris. McG directs.
