Michael Raymond-James (Once Upon A Time) and Larenz Tate (Rush) are set to co-star opposite David Lyons in NBC’s drama pilot Game Of Silence, from Carol Mendelsohn, David Hudgins and Sony TV. Written by Hudgins based on a Turkish format and directed by Niels Arden Oplev, Game Of Silence centers on Jackson (Lyons), a rising attorney on the brink of success who could lose his perfectly crafted life when his long-lost childhood friends threaten to expose a dark secret from their violent past. Raymond-James, repped by TalentWorks, Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management and Peikoff/Mahan, will play Gil, one of four childhood friends entangled in the conspiracy. Tate, repped by Paradigm, Brillstein Entertainment and attorney John Meigs, is Tony, the peacemaker of the group who hangs out with Gil and helps him with his petty crime schemes. Raymond-James recently starred as Paul Revere in the History miniseries Sons Of Liberty and will next be seen in Disney’s The Finest Hours. Tate currently recurs on Showtime’s House Of Lies.
