Madeleine Stowe has snagged the female lead in NBC's midseason drama "Raines."
The series stars Jeff Goldblum as a quirky cop. Like so many eccentric television officers, he's brilliant, but he also talks to the dead victims, who help him sold crimes. Earlier in the week, Malik Yoba ("Thief") was added to the cast as the main character's friend and confidant.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stowe will play a shrink who has a "battle of wits" with Raises.
Stowe has been moving in the direction of television for a while now. She was seen last year in the CBS telefilm "Saving Milly." She went on to star in FOX's drama pilot "Southern Comfort" this past development season.
On the big screen, Stowe has starring a slew of successful films including "The Last of the Mohicans," "Twelve Monkeys" and "The General's Daughter."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
