Urban, who will next appear in Star Trek Into Darkness, is also well-known for playing Eomer in The Lord of the Ringstrilogy and the title role in 2012's Dredd. His previous TV credits include Herculesand Xena.
Fringe's J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot, will reteam with Lost's Abrams and Bryan Burk as executive producers. As previously announced, Minka Kelly, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby will also star.
