According to Deadline Leslie Odom, Jr. (pictured below) has landed a role in “Poe” to play Julian “Jupiter” Noble, a doctor at a free clinic who helps Poe with his bedeviled duties.
“Fringe” and “Terra Nova” director Alex Graves will be handling the directorial reins for “Poe” for its first episode.

TV and Lin Pictures, “Poe” is a new crime procedural TV series that will follow Edgar Allan Poe, the world’s very first detective, as he uses unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. It’s described as Sherlock Holmes with a hint of “X-Files” and “Moonlighting”.
