Jason O’Mara has landed a lead part in a CBS drama about Las Vegas lawman, Ralph Lamb.
The Irish actor has jumped shipped from the floundering Terra Nova which was cancelled by Fox following a disappointing debut season.
O’Mara will join Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis in the much vaunted new CBS drama which comes from writers Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas) and Greg Walker according to Deadline.
O’Mara, who played a cop in both Steven Spelberg’s dino drama and also the US version of Life on Mars, is back on the side of the law again in the new CBS drama as the younger brother of Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid). Chiklis will play the baddie -a Chicago mob fixer.
