Charlie Cox is getting Ordained.
The Boardwalk Empire star has landed the leading role on the CBS pilot, TVGuide.com has learned.
Cox would star as Tom, the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood to become a lawyer to prevent his politician sister from being assassinated. Cox is best known as Owen Slater, who sadly joined the Boardwalk's ever-growing body count last season.
Lisa Takeuchi Cullen will write, while War Horse's Frank Marshall and Devious Maids' Larry Shuman will executive-produce. As previously announced, Nestor Serrano will co-star.
