In his first pilot gig, Ryan Phillippe is set for the lead in CBS’ untitled Nick Wootton-Greg Berlanti drama pilot (formerly Golden Boy). The project, from Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Prods centers on Clark (Phillippe), a cop, and chronicles his meteoric rise from officer to detective and ultimately police commissioner. In the pilot, Phillippe joins previously cast Kevin Alejandro and Chi McBride. Phillippe has been one of the most sough-after actors for pilots for several years now. His pilot gig comes on the heels for his signing for a major role on the final season of Damages.
