Scoop: Cuba Gooding Jr. to Headline Fox's Greg Berlanti-Produced Drama Pilot Guilty

Cuba Gooding Jr. GuiltyIn what would mark his first full-time TV gig, Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. has landed the lead role in Guilty, a Fox drama pilot from Greg Berlanti and his fellow Eli Stone producer Marc Guggenheim.

After being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney — William “Billy” Remz (Gooding) — uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he’s been prohibited from handling and to exact revenge on those who set him up.

McG has signed on to direct the pilot.
