Mehdi Dehbi and Moran Atias have been cast in the high-profile FX drama pilot Tyrant, from Howard Gordon, Gideon Raff and Craig Wright. Tyrant tells the story of an unassuming American family — Barry, Molly and their kids — drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Dehbi plays Abdul, a handsome young man assigned to keep Barry’s teenaged son Sammy out of trouble. Atias plays Leila, the stunning, elegant and intelligent wife of Barry’s older brother Jamal and strong mother of Ahmed, the bridegroom. David Yates is directing the pilot, which will be filmed in Morocco.
