David Boreanaz to Star in CBS Navy SEAL Drama
David Boreanaz has booked his first post-Bones role.
The actor has signed on to star in CBS' untitled Navy SEAL drama pilot, replacing Jim Caviezel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The project follows the lives of the elite unit as they train and plan the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask. Boreanaz will play Jason, the respected, committed leader of his assault team who's been through over a dozen deployments.
For Boreanaz, the casting comes a week ahead of the series finale of Fox's Bones, on which he has starred for the past 12 seasons. The veteran actor also served as a producer on the procedural and directed several episodes. His other TV credits include his breakout role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff, Angel, in which Boreanaz starred.
