Pilot News: Caan Plays Cop, Woodard Mentors Maggie
Alfre Woodard, Scott Caan
Scott Caan of Ocean's Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen has landed the lead in Cop House, Fox's dramedy pilot about a halfway house for lawmen. Caan will play an expert marksman who suffers a nervous breakdown when his wife leaves him for his (guffaw) sister, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Also entering this House is Curtiss Cook (Law & Order: CI), as a cop prone to violent outbursts.
In other Fox pilot news, Alfre Woodard (My Own Worst Enemy Miss Evers' Boys) has been cast on Maggie Hill as the tough chief of cardiothoracic surgery and mentor to the titular — and schizo — doctor (played by Christina Cole).
