A high-profile TV actor who has racked up six Emmy nominations, including winning two trophies, will play the lead in the new ABC drama pilot “Last Resort,” Deadline.com reports.
Andre Braugher, who received back-to-back Emmy nominations in 2010 and 2011 for TNT’s "Men of a Certain Age," has been cast in the role, the story says.
The project focuses on a nuclear submarine crew that disobeys an order and becomes fugitives, landing on an island and declaring itself an independent nuclear nation, the story says. Braugher will play Capt. Marcus Chaplin, the sub’s commander.
Braugher won Emmys for his work on "Homicide: Life on the Street" and "Thief," and was also nominated for “Gideon’s Crossing” and “The Tuskegee Airmen.”
