More Casting News for NBC's 17th Precinct
And two more names have been added to the ever-growing roster for NBC's "17th Precinct", both of whom have a bit of experience with TV law enforcement, albeit on different sides of the fence.
Per Deadline the first new addition is Esai Morales ("NYPD Blue", "24"), who will portray Lt. Liam Butterfield, second in command in the precinct; and next is Eamonn Walker (pictured, "Oz"), who will be heading things up as Detective Chief Inspector Wilder Blanks.
The Sony TV-produced drama is set in the fictional town of Excelsior where magic and supernatural elements rule over science and revolves around the cops at the local 17th Precinct. Jamie Bamber portrays crime scene expert Caolán Longstreet, and Kristin Kreuk guest stars in the pilot as his wife, Susan. Tricia Helfer plays Morgana, a necromancer, the magical equivalent of a coroner, who is an expert at manipulating the potions, tools, herbs, and spells of her trade while James Callis is portraying a homicide detective. Also confirmed are Stockard Channing, Matt Long, Brandon Jay McLaren, Lanette Ware, and Katelyn Mager.
