Who you gonna call? Well it depends. If you’re looking to find someone to bust ghouls and ghosts, you’ll have to wait until Ghostbusters 3 exists as something beyond just one of Dan Aykroyd’s paranormal fever dreams. But if you’re looking to talk to a mob heavy, I think I might know a guy, but don’t mention the name Zeddemore.

Deadline reports Ernie Hudson is in negotiations to take on a recurring role in Frank Darabont’s upcoming TNT series Lost Angeles, formerly known as L.A. Noir. Other than Ghostbusters, Hudson is perhaps best known for his role as Warden Leo Glynn on HBO’s Oz, but he’s playing someone on the opposite side of the law this go around.

It’s L.A. in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s, 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 didn’t hear it from us.

While Gangster Squad is the first thought on everyone’s minds once this project is brought up, given the subject matter, that film’s story arcs were poorly thought out, and Darabont has much more to offer, hopefully. The series features the ongoing battle between the LAPD and the West Coast mob.

The series is set to debut in late 2013, but if you want to catch Hudson in something before then, he’ll be in George C. Wolfe’s drama You’re Not You later this year.
