Damian O’Hare in TNT’s pilot “L.A. Noir”
This just in: Damian O’Hare will be in the pilot of TNT’s new drama “L.A. Noir”, written and directed by Frank Darabont (“The Walking Dead”, “The Green Mile”)! According to the press release,
L.A. Noir is the true story of a decades-long conflict between the Los Angeles Police Department, under the determined leadership of Police Chief William Parker, and ruthless criminal elements led by Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of L.A.’s criminal world. The series is a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and ’50s. It’s a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base.
Damian will play a character called “Pat Dolan”. TNT will announce later this month whether they’ll pick up “L.A. Noir”, which is based on the book “L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City” by John Buntin. That’s all I know at the moment, more news as it comes.
Looks like he won’t be in the pilot after all. Dammit!
