As pilot season is rapidly coming to an end, Omar J. Dorsey snags a role on Fox’s pilot Rake playing Roy the bookie.
Rake follows the chaotic world of criminal defense lawyer Cleaver Greene. He’s a brilliant, iconoclastic, innately self-destructive, with mind-numbing lack of discretion and a total inability to pause before speaking his mind kind of guy. Cleaver counsels bigamist to cannibals and everything in between, but the clients Cleaver loves most are the ones whose cases appear to be utterly hopeless. Ironically, it’s himself that is perhaps the most desperate case of all.
Dorsey joins Greg Kinnear, Bojana Novakovic, Miranda Otto and David Harbour to round out the cast. Sam Raimi, who also directed the Spider Man trilogy will be directing the pilot with a script from Peter Duncan.
Dorsey’s past credits include, K-Ville, Rozzoli & Isles and CSI: NY. He can be seen more recently in Tarantino’s Django Unchained as Chicken Charlie.
