Pilot News: Michael Raymond-James, Larenz Tate Join NBC's Game of Silence

NBC Pilot Game of Silence

Once Upon a Time‘s Michael Raymond-James and Rescue Me alum Larenz Tate have boarded the NBC drama pilot Game of Silence.

The project — adapted from a Turkish series by David Hudgins (Parenthood) — centers on Jackson (Revolution‘s David 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.

Per our sister site Deadline, Raymond-James and Tate will play Gil and Tony, two of the aforementioned pesky pals from the past.

Raymond-James’ previous TV credits also include Terriers and History’s recent Sons of Liberty mini, while Tate has had runs on House of Lies and Rush.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. Tran says:

    Hope GoS gets picked up as a series by NBC.

  3. Rebecca says:

    Sounds great! I love stories like this. That and glad to hear that MRJ continues to find good & better work post the crap fest that is OUAT. He deserves/deserved better anyway.

  4. Game says:

    May MRJ be blessed with a successful pilot that keeps him on my t.v.
    The sting of losing Terriers hurt. Probably one of the few that loved that show, lol.

      I think most people that watched Terriers liked it. I watched FX at the time and I have to say I rarely saw much promotion for it, unlike their other shows.

    I’m happy for MRJ but i was still holding out hope he would come back to OUAT :(

  6. Candice says:

    I love Larenz.

    I’d try it. It sounds like something a little different, plus I have liked Larenz Tate forever.

  8. HeatherC says:

    MRJ and David Lyons in the same show??! I’m TOTALLY in for that one! Hope it goes well and gets picked up by NBC for this fall! =D

  9. Lns says:

    What happened to Rush on USA tv. Larenz was on it.

    Excited to have a show with David Lyons in it. Hope it makes it. Can not wait.

    Loved MRJ in Terriers. Never understood how FX chooses which shows to cancel and which to keep.
