Three actors have the 'Delta Blues'

Abraham Benrubi, Celia Weston and DJ Qualls join cast

Abraham Benrubi, Celia Weston and DJ Qualls have joined the cast of TNT's pilot "Delta Blues," executive produced by George Clooney.

From Clooney and Grant Heslov's Smokehouse Pictures and Warner Horizon, "Blues" centers on Dwight Hendricks (Jason Lee), a Memphis police officer who lives with his mother (Weston) and moonlights as a tribute artist.

Benrubi will play Sgt. J.C. Lightfoot, a 6-foot-5 Caucasian man with a braided ponytail who is only one-eighth Chickasaw but lives by his tribe's wisdom and dispenses sage quotations to the rest of the Memphis detectives.

Qualls will play a cop and Dwight's protege.

Benrubi, who is recurring on ABC's midseason drama "Happy Town," is repped by Stone Manners and Kritzer/Levine/Wilkins/Griffin.
