TNT’s ‘Lost Angels’ Adds ‘Ghostbusters’ Star Ernie Hudson

It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything from TNT’s Frank Darabont-helmed noir drama ‘Lost Angels‘ (formerly ‘L.A. Noir‘), so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the Upfronts passed without any mention of the series. Now set to film its first season in the coming summer months, the period piece has added ‘Ghostbusters‘ star Ernie Hudson in a recurring role, but as whom?

According to Deadline, Hudson is in talks to play the role of “Bunny,” a mobster who has control of the clubs and joints along Central Avenue, and also happens to work for the infamous Bugsy Siegel. Written and directed by Frank Darabont, ‘Lost Angels’ revolves around the police force’s pursuit of mobster Mickey Cohen and takes its basis from John Buntin’s book ‘L.A. Noir: The Struggle For The Soul Of America’s Most Seductive City,’ which recounts the story of decades-long conflicts between the LAPD and the city’s criminals.

The series features ‘The Walking Dead‘ star Jon Bernthal as Joe Teague, the LAPD cop at the center of the drama, and ‘Heroes’ alum Milo Ventimiglia as a former marine who served with Bernthal’s character during World War II and now works as a budding lawyer for the mob. Rounding out the high-profile cast is former ‘Justified’ guest star Neal McDonough as LAPD Chief Parker, frequent Darabont collaborator Jeffrey DeMunn as detective Hal Morrison, and Alexa Davalos as Jasmine, a “beauty with a complicated past.” Also, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ and ‘The World’s End‘ star Simon Pegg will appear in the show’s pilot as third-rate comedian and mob hanger-on Hecky Nash.

The series will most likely film the remaining 6 episodes of its initial order this summer, but what say you? Are you still apt to see what ‘Lost Angels’ has to offer?
