dennehyBrian Dennehy is in negotiations to star opposite Sam Trammell in Amazon Studios’ dramedy pilot Cocked. Written by Samuel Baum and Sam Shaw, Cocked centers on Richard Paxson (Trammell), a Washington D.C. management consultant who’s estranged from his father Wade (Dennehy) and brother but is pulled back in to the fray of his family’s gun manufacturing company after a corporate rival, run by their uncle, moves to take them over. Dennehy, repped by ICM Partners, was the only choice for the role and was approached shortly after the project was picked up to pilot. He has now entered formal negotiations. Co-starring in the pilot is Don’t Trust the B—- alumna Dreama Walker.
