Two more make the drive to ABC's 'Motor City'
EmptyABC's drama pilot "The Prince of Motor City" has emerged as the "Dirty Sexy Money" or the "Brothers & Sisters" of this pilot season — a large ensemble that has attracted top talent.
The latest big-name actor tapped for a starring role in "Motor City" is Aidan Quinn, with Rutger Hauer also on board as a regular.
The two join the previously cast Piper Perabo, Andie MacDowell, Sharon Lawrence, John Carroll Lynch, Warren Christie and Morris Chestnut.
"Motor City," from ABC Studios, is a gothic family soap inspired by "Hamlet" that centers on Billy Hamilton (Christie), a young Harvard philosophy professor forced to return to Detroit to take over the family's auto company after his father's death.
Quinn will play Billy's uncle Charlie Hamilton, who always has been in his brother's shadow. Hauer will play Billy's father, William Hamilton, who recently was killed in an accident and begins appearing to his estranged son as a ghost.
Quinn recently co-starred on Fox's "Canterbury's Law."
Hauer is repped by APA, Hyler Management and attorney Mark Stankevich. (partialdiff)
