Orlando Jones has closed a deal to star in ABC's Identity.

He will play Agent Wareing in the procedural, centered on "an elite police unit formed to combat the explosion of identity-related crime."

The script was written by John Glenn, with Mark Gordon and Deb Spera executive producing. ABC Studios is behind the project.

As first reported by THR last week, ABC made an offer to Jones along with Wentworth Miller to star in the network's pilot presentation.

Jones is no stranger to the small screen, recurring on CBS' Rules of Engagement and ABC's Men in Trees.
