Joel David Moore (Bones, Avatar), Barbara Eve Harris (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Donnie Keshawarz (The Wolf Of Wall Street) have landed series regular roles on ABC’s drama pilot Forever, written by Matthew Miller and directed by Brad Anderson. It centers on Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City’s star medical examiner. But what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason – he is immortal. His investigative work with recently widowed Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza), a recovering alcoholic, and relationship with best friend Abe (Judd Hirsch) will peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life. Moore, repped by ICM and Underground, will play Lucas, a young M.E. tech who’s a bit of a hipster and easily tongue-tied around pretty women. Harris, with SDB Partners and Valeo Entertainment, will play Lt. Roark, an old-school NYC cop who is Martinez’s boss. The role originally was written for a male character. Keshawarz will play brash homicide Detective Hanson, who works with Martinez. He’s with Abrams Artists Agency and ATA Management.
