Maggie Grace Set to Co-Star in CBS' Wall Street Drama

Looks like Maggie Grace isn't "lost" anymore. The 'Lost' alum has been tapped to co-star in CBS' untitled new Wall Street drama pilot. 

The series, written by Taylor Elmore and Ben Cavell ('Justified'), is set in the world of Wall Street power and money, and, of course, greed (which, fans of the Oliver Stone movie, 'Wall Street,' know is actually good).

The projects stars Charlie Cox ('Boardwalk Empire') as Jackson, a smart and sophisticated hedge fund trader, who also served his country in Iraq, so, unlike most of his co-workers, he actually has some integrity and wants to spread some goodwill.

Grace will play Jamie, a newly-hired in-house legal counsel, who's also ambitious and intelligent, and like Jackson, has a conscience (something tells me that these two will surely butt heads with the "wolves" of Wall Street). She joins David Morse ('Treme') and Sophie Okonedo ('The Escape Artist'). Morse will play Conklin, a powerful hedge fund genius, who's only thinking about making himself more Benjamins, while Okonedo plays Bryce, an Assistant Attorney General, who's investigating Wall Street. 

The idea for the series came from an original story by Elmore, Cavell, John Cusack and Kevin McCabe. Cusack will exec-produce alongside 'Justified's Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. Swedish director Niels Arden Oplev ('Under the Dome') is set to direct. 

Grace, who's had success on both the small screen and big screen, most recently starred in Showtime's 'Californication' and next will be seen in features 'We'll Never Have Paris' and 'About Alex.' She also recently signed on to star in the last installment of the 'Taken' trilogy.
