Finally! After months of radio silence and plenty of speculation, it seems former 'Walking Dead' show-runner Frank Darabont's new TNT drama is a go. Though the network apparently refers to the series as untitled, 'L.A. Noir' has officially been picked up by TNT for a limited order. And who better to appear in the new period drama, than similarly discarded 'Walking Dead' stars Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn? Get all the details of the new series inside!
Ordinarily, we'd be wary of the notion that a high-profile pilot continues adding notable and recognizable genre actors to its ranks, but since great art often comes out of the ashes of failure, Frank Darabont's 'L.A. Noir' is on track to be one of the more anticipated debuts of the year. And now the series has added another talent actor to its ranks.
Boy, that Simon Pegg has his hands in a lot of different cookie jars these days. One day he's throwing his voice to one of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' the next it's back to beaming up for 'Star Trek 2,' so where might the UK funnyman pop up next? Back in time? Well, that's one frontier Pegg has never boldly gone before.
Boy, that Frank Darabont just has to have every great actor on TV right now for his upcoming TNT crime-drama pilot 'L.A. Noir', doesn't he? Well, as long as he's going to, could he at least wait until after their existing TV characters have been conclusively killed off? Sheesh.
