Cam Gigandet to Star in CBS Show “Reckless”.
Twilight’s Cam Gigandet, aka James has scooped up a new role for an upcoming legal drama to be aired on CBS at the end of the year or 2014.
Reckless is another legal show, this time set in Charleston where a Yankee litigator and a Southern city attorney struggle to hide their intense personal and of course physical attraction while clashing professionally over a police sex scandal. Romeo & Juliet, in the south, with a law twist, anyone?
Cam Gigandet plays the litigator, while Shawn Hatosy (who is definitely available to continue on with the series now that TNT has axed Southland), Michael Gladis, Kim Wayans, Georgina Haig, Anna Wood, Gregory Harrison, and Adam Rodriguez round out the cast.
From the network:
“Reckless is a sultry legal drama set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming Southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart. Jamie Sawyer (Wood) is enviously cool, confident and armed with south-side-of-Chicago street-smarts as she takes on the good ol’ boys in the South. Her handsome courtroom rival, Roy Rayder (Gigandet), a divorced father of two, embodies the Old South and is the newly minted City Attorney, thanks to his influential former father-in-law, Dec Fortnum (Harrison). When disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus (Haig) hires Jamie to represent her in a lawsuit against the police department, Jamie and Roy discover that Lee Anne is at the epicenter of a sinister case with dire implications for the members of the Charleston P.D. Heading that department is Deputy Chief Holland Knox (Gladis), a family man who radiates integrity. Working under him are Terry McCandless (Hatosy), a cocky and corrupt detective and Preston Cruz (Rodriguez), Jamie’s well-respected boyfriend who might not be all that he appears. Helping Jamie is her confidante and paralegal, Vi (Wayans), an expert at digging up case-winning information. As Jamie and Roy spar in and out of the courtroom, dark secrets simmer behind every door and threaten to tarnish the genteel facade of seductive Charleston.”
