Four pilots flesh out casts
Denis O'Hare, David Morse among those landing rolesDenis O'Hare has joined Fox's untitled Ian Biederman drama, David Morse has entered ABC's "Empire State," Lloyd Owen has been added to ABC's drama "Inside the Box," and Ben Feldman has been cast in ABC's drama "See Cate Run."
The Biederman project, from 20th and Imagine, centers on Maggie (Christina Cole), a brilliant surgeon who endures adult-onset schizophrenia and thrives.
Tony winner O'Hare will play a top schizophrenia doctor who treats Maggie. Repped by Innovative, he was recently seen on the big screen in "Milk" and next appears in "Duplicity."
The Romeo-and-Juliet drama "Empire," from ABC Studios, revolves around a blue-collar man falling in love with a wealthy woman. Morse, nominated for an Emmy last year for his portrayal of George Washington in the HBO miniseries "John Adams," will play the boy's strong-willed, caring father.
ABC Studios' "Box" is set at a new network's Washington bureau. The British-born Owen ("Viva Laughlin") will play a suave Englishman tapped to replace the retiring bureau chief.
The ABC Studios-produced "Cate" centers on a young prosecuting attorney (Amy Smart) who one day is going to be a serious contender for president of the U.S. Repped by UTA and Impression, Feldman ("Friday the 13th") will play an ADA who works with her and is her boyfriend.
