This just keeps getting better and better! Frank Darabont's L.A. Noir, a TNT pilot recently greenlit by the network, has added another familiar face to its cast. Neal McDonough, who is currently knocking our socks off with his portrayal of Robert Quarles on FX's Justified, is the most recent addition to the cast of the series. The project, which is written and directed by Frank Darabont (formerly showrunner for The Walking Dead) is about the power struggle between the LAPD and the Los Angeles underworld in the 1940s and 1950s. McDonough joins The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal, who has already signed on for the pilot.
McDonough will play Police Chief William Parker, who dedicates himself to taking down gangster Mickey Cohen, as well as cracking down on corruption within the LAPD. This role will be a switch for McDonough, who currently plays the twisted and sadistic Robert Quarles on Justified's current season. McDonough is famous for his work on television projects like Band Of Brothers, Boomtown, Medical Investigation and Desperate Housewives. He also has notable roles in movies like Clint Eastwood's Flags Of Our Fathers, Walking Tall and Captain America: The First Avenger.
