A British Invasion...? If only. U.K.-born Toby Stephens ( Die Another Day) has landed the lead in Inseparable, a prospective pilot for Fox, says the Reporter. Pitched to the network before the strike by Shaun Cassidy ( Invasion), the drama is pegged as "a modern-day Jekyll-and-Hyde tale" in which a partially paralyzed forensic shrink harbors a split personality - his other self being a charismatic criminal.

Inseparable, it should be noted, has not yet been picked up by Fox as a pilot. But with this pre-season being so unusual, networks are in some cases locking up talent first .
