Linus Roache, Beau Bridges and Keith Robinson have landed FOX pilot leads, according to the industry trades.
Roache, most recently seen (for a couple weeks at least) on NBC's "Kidnapped," will play the husband to Julianna Margulies' rebellious defense attorney in the Denis Leary-produced legal drama "Canterbury's Law."
Other credits for Roache include the features "Batman Begins," "Wings of the Dove" and "The Chronicles of Riddick."
Bridges, a three-time Emmy winner, will take the lead in the comedy "Two Families," playing a man whose secret -- he has two families and neither knows the other exists -- comes to light after an accident.
In addition to his recurring role on NBC's "My Name Is Earl," Bridges was recently seen on Sci Fi's "Stargate SG-1."
Robinson, currently on the big screen in the Oscar nominated "Dreamgirls," will be part of the ensemble of the drama "The Apostles," about the off-the-job lives of a group of LAPD officers. Robinson also starred in FX's "Over There" and in CBS' upcoming "Comanche Moon."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
