Alimi Ballard has joined the cast of TNT’s drama pilot “Trooper,” Deadline has learned.

This could be major for Ballard as the project is from television/film vet Jerry Bruckheimer. The series will center on a recently divorced state trooper  and mother of three  (Mira Sorvino).

Ballard will play Lt. Hollis Figgins, the main character’s superior officer, a savvy, sensitive man who leads by example.

This isn’t Ballard’s first go round with Bruckheimer or TNT. The actor played an internal affairs officer on Rizzoli & Isles earlier this year and also appeared on Bruckheimer’s “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” back in 2003. His past television credits include roles on “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” “NCIS,” and “Numb3rs.”
