David Needleman

Christopher Jackson, who plays George Washington in the Broadway smash hit musical Hamilton, has been cast in the CBS drama pilot Bull, from Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios.

Written by Phil McGraw and Paul Attanasio, Bull is based on popular daytime talk-show host Dr. Phil’s early days as head of one of the most prolific trial consulting services of all time. It centers on Dr. Jason Bull, who runs Trial Sciences Inc., a company that analyzes juries to help develop defense strategies. Jackson will play Chunk, a stylist on the team who helps prepare defendants for trial, and a former All-American lineman.

Jackson has guest starred on The Good Wife, Person Of Interest and Nurse Jackie. Additional Broadway credits include In The Heights, The Lion King, After Midnight, Memphis, Holler If Ya Hear Me and The Bronx Bombers.

Jackson is repped by Liebman Entertainment and Paradigm.
