Steven Pasquale Doubt

Rescue Me Vet Steven Pasquale Joins CBS Pilot Doubt in Latest Recast

CBS no longer has any Doubt about who will be the male lead in its upcoming drama pilot.

The network has tapped Rescue Me alum Steven Pasquale to co-star in the potential series, replacing Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex, now on The Flash).

From Grey’s Anatomy EPs Joan Rater and Tony Phelan, Doubt centers on Sadie Ellis (played by Katherine Heigl), a lawyer who becomes romantically involved with a client (Pasquale) who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.

The project did not get a series order during the May Upfronts, but remained in contention at CBS after a script rewrite and casting changes. (Heigl’s role was originally filled by Private Practice‘s KaDee Strickland.)

Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black), Dulé Hill (Psych), Dreama Walker (Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23), Elliott Gould (Ray Donovan) and Kobi Libii (Alpha House) remain in the cast.

In addition to his run on Rescue Me, Pasquale has appeared on The Good Wife, Bloodline, Do No Harm and Up All Night.

    Wait, I just noticed this was created by Grey’s EPs. Seems kind of surprising to me with the Heigl recast

    • Whatever says:

      Oh I think we can all safely conclude that it’s only a certain someone that she has offended even after all these time.

    I’m a little confused. Did this finally get an order or is it still in the development stage?
