The Fringe and Sleepy Hollow actor will play Aubrey Griffin, the world's foremost expert of antiquities and adventure. Through his numbers book, Griffin is seen by contemporaries as a mythological mix of Indiana Jones and James Bond. Despite his tales of travel and history, few knew that he is confined to a wheelchair, and his life limited to the safe confines of his Central Park West apartment.
Things will change for him when a museum curator turns up dead with a Roman dagger in her possession. Griffin concludes that there is far more to this blade than meets the eye - it's the knife that ended the life of Emperor Julius Caesar.
And then there's the caveat that the dagger contains a curse of death to any and all who come into contact with it.
Could it be the same knife that killed Adam (Burn Gorman) in 44 B.C.?
