Pilot News: Dana Delany Cast as Ron Perlman's Wife in Amazon's Hand of God

Body of Proof‘s Dana Delany is making her return to scripted drama with a lead role in Amazon’s Hand of God pilot.

Delany will play Crystal, the wife of Ron Perlman’s Judge Harris Pernell.

The hour-long project, from Burn Notice Executive Producer Ben Watkins, centers on Pernell, a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him.

As TVLine scooped earlier this week, the drama’s cast also includes The Wire alum Andre Royo as Bobo, the local mayor and Pernell’s best friend.

Delany’s ABC procedural Body of Proof was cancelled last year. The network considered resurrecting it, but those talks collapsed last fall.

The two-time Emmy winner (both for China Beach) also has appeared in Desperate Housewives, CastlePresidio Med and Pasadena, among other series.

    This casing has me very nervous. I hope she can play a very different character than she has in the past.

  2. DavidSask says:

    This is bad casting lets hope it changes as these 2 don’t mesh together!!!

  3. Mary says:

    How do you know they don’t mesh together? Have you actually seen this show already? Delany has played many different roles and many different types of women and she’s been great in all of them. Why don’t you wait and see before you make judgments.

    I wasn’t going to before…but now I have some incentive to watch

  5. Stormy says:

    Isn’t she kind of the kiss of death to TV shows? Much like Blair Underwood and Mark Valley.

    What is Amazon, a channel?

    The Mentalist used to be one of my favorite shows. It seemed that eventually Jane and Lisbon would get together, but obviously that’s beginning to look like it will never happen. If it don’t happen soon I’m inclined to stop watching the show. Since they left CBI, the show has been a lot worse.. I sure hope you start doing better. I would like to see Van Pelt and Rigsby back on the show as regulars. Please get rid of the FBI.
