Robinson the long arm of 'Law' for Fox


"Dreamgirls" co-star Keith Robinson has joined the cast of Fox's upcoming drama series "Canterbury's Law" as a regular.

"Law," from Sony Pictures TV and Apostle, stars Julianna Margulies as a rebellious defense attorney who pushes the boundaries of the law to protect innocent clients.

Robinson will play her co-worker, Chester Fields. The role, played in the pilot by Jocko Sims, has been recast.

"Law" extends Fox's relationship with Robinson. This past development season, he co-starred on the network's drama pilot "The Apostles," from 20th Century Fox TV.

Robinson, who played C.C. White in "Dreamgirls," will next be seen in CBS' "Comanche Moon."

He is repped by Stone Manners and the Firm.
