The Necessary Roughness star has been cast as Dan in ABC’s drama pilot about the only female in the male-dominated Texas Ranger Division.
Based on the Argentine series Mujeres Asesinas, the project — which counts Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara among its producers — follows Molly Parker (played by Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer), a beautiful and ballsy Ranger who knows how to get the truth and isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers on her way there.
Hannah Shakespeare (The Playboy Club) penned the script.
Blucas plays Matthew on USA Network’s Roughness, which this week aired its sophomore finale and was recently renewed for a shortened Season 3. He also has appeared on Castle, Body of Proof and Revenge. Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans will remember him as the Slayer’s first serious post-Angel boyfriend.
