New JH Wyman/JJ Abrams Show Casts Its Android Cop
The new Fox sci-fi pilot from JH Wyman (Fringe) and JJ Abrams (everything) has cast one half of its lead buddy cop duo.
The show – which is currently going by the name Human but that may change (more info here in our exclusive chat with Wyman) – is set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.
Former Common Law actor Michael Ealy has been cast in the non-human role. He’s called Dorian and he’s partnered with LAPD officer John Kennex (yet to be cast). But it seems (according to TVLine) that Dorian will have a better grasp on humanity than his human partner (oh, thank the Lord for that – we were worried we were going to have to relive seven years of Data trying to master stand-up comedy…)
