Sossamon 'Moonlight' sheen


Shannyn Sossamon has been tapped to co-star on CBS' upcoming drama series "Moonlight."

The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Silver Pictures, centers on Mick (Alex O'Loughlin), a private investigator who is a vampire.

Sossamon will play the beautiful, seductive Coraline, a vampire who 60 years ago married Mick and made him immortal by biting him on their wedding night.

Sossamon replaces Amber Valletta, who played the role in the pilot presentation.

Sossamon's deal completes the recasting of the main characters that surround Mick — female lead Beth Turner, which will now be played by Sophia Myles, and Josef, to be played by Jason Dohring (HR 6/28).

Sossamon next appears in the film "One Missed Call."
