'The 4400's' Patrick Flueger Joins NBC's 'Hatfields vs. McCoys'
Patrick Flueger is reuniting with his former onscreen Scoundrels mother Virginia Madsen.
The 4400 alum has been tapped to co-star in NBC's Hatfields & McCoys drama pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
A startling death reignites the feud between the two legendary families in modern-day Pittsburgh. Unleashing decades of resentment, the blue-collar McCoys will put the Hatfields' wealth and power at risk as they go to war for control of the city.
Flueger again will play Madsen's son; this time it's Jack McCoy, a street-smart, hot-headed guy who is fiercely loyal to his family and love of Pittsburgh, where he runs a sports bar. The baby of the family, he's not above using shady connections to get what he wants.
Madsen will play Eloise McCoy, a woman from a tough background dealing with insurmountable obstacles. She's self-made and has raised her children to put family first. Despite her calm demeanor, she's extremely vengeful and calculated and will do anything for her family. After her husband is murdered, she manipulates Patrick McCoy into taking revenge on the Hatfields.
Eagle Eye's John Glenn will pen the script and executive produce alongside Charlize Theron, A.J. Dix, Dawn Olstead and Beau Flynn. Smash's Michael Mayer will direct the ABC Studios drama.
In addition to ABC's Scoundrels and The 4400, Flueger's credits include Criminal Minds and the features Footloose, Mother's Day and the upcoming The Tell-Tale Heart. He's repped by UTA and Nancy Kremer.
