Of the cast members least likely to return to 24 for the series' planned comeback next year, Louis Lambardi is probably high on the list. Granted, presumed dead characters have been known to come back to life -
Itís L.A. in the late Ď40s and early Ď50s, see? And Hudson is part of the criminal element, see? He owns most of the clubs and other lawless establishments down Central Avenue. He might just happen to work for Bugsy Siegel. His name is Bunny, but if anybody asks, you didnít hear it from us.
Since his unexpected exit from The Walking Dead last year, Frank Darabont has been developing a pilot for TNT tentatively titled L.A. Noir. Among the stars of the project, TWD's Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn. Word has finally come in on the fate of the pilot and it's good news! TNT announced today that they've picked it up to series.
If you haven't gotten caught up on the second season of The Walking Dead, read no further! What is The Walking Dead's loss may be L.A. Noir's gain. The TNT drama pilot appears to be picking up the AMC dramas leavings, and it may be all the better for it, given the talent falling away from that show.
Frank Darabont's L.A. Noir adaptation just keeps getting better and better. Based on John Butninís true crime novel L.A. Noir: The Struggle For the Soul of Americaís Most Seductive City the writer-director has assembled quite the project at TNT with Milo Ventimiglia, Jon Bernthal (rumored) and Neal McDonough set to star in the tale of Los Angeles' hard boiled history. In an attempt to add to the pilot's prestige, Darabont and the network are trying to land Shaun of the Dead Simon Pegg for a secret guest spot.
It looks like Neal McDonough found what could be his next TV role. The actor is currently playing the role of Robert Quarles on FXís Justified, and his credits include a couple of big screen parts. And possibly coming soon, we may be seeing him in Frank Darabontís TNT drama pilot LA Noir.
Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia is making his first appearance in a cable project. He has signed on for the TNT pilot L.A. Noir. The mid-century cops versus mobsters project comes from jilted Walking Dead writer, producer and director Frank Darabont, who sold it to TNT back in January.
Where Frank Darabont goes, Jon Bernthal may follow. Word is, the actor, who currently plays a pretty big role in AMCís The Walking Dead may be looking to star in L.A. Noir, Darabontís upcoming drama pilot for TNT. So, what does this mean for Shane on The Walking Dead?
TNT has ordered a pilot for the drama, which focuses on the true story of a decades-long conflict between the Los Angeles Police Department and a criminal ring in the forties and fifties. At the head of the LAPD is Police Chief William Parker. His intimate rival is boxer-turned-mobster Mickey Cohen. The program will be based on L.A. Noir: The Struggle For The Soul Of Americaís Most Seductive City, a nonfiction title by John Buntin.
