Aussie Angus Sampson (Fargo, The Walking Dead, Insidious) has joined upcoming CBS drama The Lincoln Lawyer.
David E. Kelley (The Practice, Big Little Lies, Boston Legal) has adapted the show from Michael Connelly’s (Bosch) novels. It was previously a 2011 feature with Matthew McConaughey.
The series centres on Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, who runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.
Sampson will play Cisco, a former biker gang member who now serves as Mickey’s (yet to be cast) investigator, friend, and when necessary, bodyguard. Cisco is an imposing figure with a keen mind and a deep well of contacts on both sides of the law that help him do his job.
It also features Kiele Sanchez (The Glades, Kingdom).
