The final casting piece of Kevin Williamson's untitled psychological thriller pilot for CBS has been put in place. Victor Rasuk ('How To Make It in America') has nabbed the final series regular role.
Rasuk joins an already eclectic cast led by Dylan McDermott ('The Practice'), Maggie Q ('Nikita') and Mariana Klaveno ('True Blood').
Penned by Williamson ('The Following'), the new thriller revolves around two detectives Jack (McDermott) and Beth (Q), who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD. Jack is the new recruit with a checkered past, while Beth is the obsessive workaholic who will narrate the series. Klaveno plays Janice, who's usually the smartest person in the room at the Unit, but she's also often overlooked because of her flashy appearance.
Rasuk is set to play Ben, an ambitious detective with questionable morals who often strikes out with the ladies.
The character description seems a far cry from Rasuk's upcoming role in 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' the much anticipated film adaptation of the popular erotica novel series. In the film, Rasuk plays Jose, the romantic rival to the eponymous Grey. Rasuk is also known for his debut role in the film festival hit 'Raising Victor Vargas' and had a recurring stint on NBC's 'ER.'
The one-hour series is currently in pre-production with Liz Friedlander ('The Following') on board to direct the pilot.
