Walton Goggins is headed to CBS. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Justified star has joined the network’s LA Confidential reboot pilot.
Based on the novel by James Ellroy, the drama follows three homicide detectives, a reporter, and an actress whose lives “intersect while the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer among the secrets and lies of glamorous and gritty 1950s Los Angeles.” In 1997, the book was adapted as a film starring Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, and Kim Basinger.
On LA Confidential, Goggins will play “Detective Jack Vincennes, who is described as all swagger and flash with a movie-star smile. He knows how the system works and uses it to his best advantage, including some corrupt shakedowns on the side.”
Anna Fricke will executive produce the CBS pilot alongside Jordan Harper, Arnon Milchan, and Michael Dinner.
