Neal McDonough has been tapped as one of the leads, playing former LAPD chief William Parker, in TNT’s one-hour pilot LA Noir, written and to be directed by The Walking Dead‘s Frank Darabont. LA Noir tells the true story of a decades-long conflict between the LAPD, under the determined leadership of Police Chief Parker (McDonough), and ruthless criminal elements led by mobster Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of LA’s criminal world. Parker, a man with a long memory and a ruthless streak when provoked, is committed to rooting out corruption in the police department, and equally dedicated to bringing down Mickey Cohen and the mob. McDonough, repped by Paradigm and Inphenate, is coming off playing this season’s main villain on FX’s Justified.
