The new Fox sci-fi pilot from JH Wyman ( Fringe ) and JJ Abrams (everything) has cast one half of its lead buddy cop duo.
The show – which is currently going by the name Human but that may change (more info here in our exclusive chat with Wyman ) – is set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.
Former Common Law actor Michael Ealy has been cast in the non-human role. He’s called Dorian and he’s partnered with LAPD officer John Kennex (yet to be cast). But it seems (according to TVLine ) that Dorian will have a better grasp on humanity than his human partner (oh, thank the Lord for that – we were worried we were going to have to relive seven years of Data trying to master stand-up comedy…)
