Homeland alum David Harewood is reuniting with the Showtime series’ executive producers Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary. Harewood has become the first actor cast in the CBS drama pilot Anatomy Of Violence, written and executive produced by Gordon, Gansa and Cary and directed by Mark Pellington. Inspired by the non-fiction book The Anatomy Of Violence: The Biological Roots Of Crime by Adrian Raine, the 20th TV-produced drama centers on Raines, a criminal psychologist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with a young female detective with whom he shares a conflicted past. Harewood will play Alejo, Special Agent in Charge, celebrated profiler and Raines’ boss and friend. Harewood, repped by APA, Conway Van Gelder Grant and Authentic, just finished a two-season stint on Emmy-winning Homeland as CIA bigwig David Estes. He most recently filmed a supporting role in Paul Haggis’ The Third Person and is attached to play the title role in a Darrell Roodt-directed indie about singer/actor Paul Robeson.
