Frank Darabont wants Thomas Jane for TNT's L.A. Noir

05.31.2012

Give me Thomas Jane anything. I'll take it. The guy pours his heart into everything he does big or small.

It looks like he might be moving on to another television series. This one from old friend Frank Darabont. As you already know, Darabont is doing a show called L.A. NOIR based on John Buntinís book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of Americaís Most Seductive City. This is not to be confused with the 2011 game from Rockstar.

Darabont wants to bring Jane on as Bugsy Siegel. They aren't sure how big his part would be in the series. The pilot episode stars THE WALKING DEAD's Jon Bernthal. The actor plays, "Joe Teague, the LAPD cop at the heart of the series that centers on the police force's pursuit of mobster Mickey Cohen."

Neal McDonough, Milo Ventimiglia, Jeffrey DeMunn and Andrew Rothenberg are in the cast as well. Simon Pegg guest stars in the pilot.

T Jane besides being an awesome actor, he was born to do Noir films, while they're certainly flawed, his roles in Dark Country and Malone were great. So.. good news!

Dude, fuck yeah! TommyJ is legit. This show would become must-watch if they cast him in it.

Thomas Jane is one of the most underrated actors out there. PTA got the best out of him in Boogie Nights.

He's underused, and if Darabont wants him for something since The Mist, then I'm in. These two work well together.

Interesting choice. I can dig it. Someday I'd like to actually see a Jew portray Siegel, just for kicks.
