Eddie Cahill Conviction Pilot Cast ABC

CSI: NY's Eddie Cahill Cast Opposite Hayley Atwell in ABC's Conviction Pilot

There’s a thin line between love and hate, and you can expect Eddie Cahill to dance it with Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) in ABC’s Conviction pilot. The CSI: NYer has been cast as the project’s male lead, our sister site Deadline reports.

Cahill’s character, New York District Attorney Wayne Wallis, is a very charismatic, astute and hot politician who creates the Conviction Integrity Unit at the center of the potential series. He names Atwell’s Hayes head of the unit… and we’re sure that has nothing to do with the fact that they’ve got history, right?

Conviction follows Hayes, who is both brilliant and from a highly political family, and her team of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts who work to make sure that mistakes in criminal convictions are put right. In addition to Atwell, the cast includes Merrin Dungey (Alias), Shawn Ashmore (The Following) and Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead).

Cahill most recently played Sam on CBS’ Under the Dome. Other TV credits include FriendsFelicity and Charmed.

    Really looking forward to this one…Wasn’t familiar with Hayley Atwell under Peggy Carter, but now she is one of my favorite actresses.

    The good news: Hayley remains on TV. The bad news: Agent Carter is no more.

      Yeah. That’s the only bad thing. Other than Peggy, Jarvis was my favorite character. Would have liked to see how Shield got started – but maybe that will come in a prequal movie.

    Yay! Bet the sparks fly with these two. Love them both. Great casting choice.
