Cuba Gooding Jr. Lands Lead Role in Drama Pilot
Cuba Gooding Jr. has landed the lead in Fox’s drama pilot “Guilty.”
The legal series will feature Gooding, in his first potential series-regular role, as “a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he’s been prohibited from handling … and to exact revenge on those who set him up,” Deadline reports. McG will direct.
Gooding wil be one of two black male actors to lead a potential television series on a major broadcast network.
