Will Patton (November Man) has booked a series regular role opposite Sanaa Lathan and Stephan James in the Fox event series Shots Fired.

From Gina Prince-Bythewood and Brian Grazer, Shots Fired examines the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small town.

Patton will play Sheriff Daniel Platt, whose precinct and an officer under his command are investigated after a police shooting. Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfus and Stephen Moyer also star.

Patton most recently starred in indie films The Scent Of Rain And Lightning and the Untitled Megan Leavey Project, and recurred this season on The Good Wife. He previously starred as Captain Weaver for five seasons on TNT’s Falling Skies. Patton is repped by APA and Kate Edwards at Grand View Management.
