Kara Killmer has been cast as a series regular in the NBC pilot Tin Man, a futuristic thriller drama from feature writer Ehren Kruger. Set in the near future, it centers on robot Adam Sentry (Patrick Heusinger), accused of the first-degree murder of his creator, Charles Vale, and the female public defender forced to fight for his cause. Killmer, repped by APA and Kelly Tiffan Management, will play Athena True, Vale’s synthetic robotic companion, a gorgeous and provocative seductress modeled to exactly resemble Vale’s late wife. She claims to be an eyewitness of Adam murdering Vale, but the truth may be a lot more complicated.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost) has joined another NBC drama pilot, Odyssey. Co-written and to be directed by Peter Horton, Odyssey is described as a Traffic-like global conspiracy thriller centered on three families whose lives are torn apart when a stranded female soldier (Anna Friel), a disillusioned corporate attorney, and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy. Akinnuoye-Agbaje will play the commanding officer of a private military operator working with the U.S. Army who is ordered into Mali to clean up after Worthington’s unit stumbles on and kills Abdule Abbas. Akinnuoye-Agbaje is repped by APA, Ben Levine (Kritzer Levine Wilkins Griffin Nilon Entertainment) and Fred Toczek (Felker Toczek Gellman Suddleson, LLP).
