Deadline is reporting that Rectify alum Adelaide Clemens has joined CBS cop drama pilot Tommy. She’ll be playing Blake, the polished, confident Press Secretary for the caustic new LAPD Chief of Police.
In addition to her role on the acclaimed SundanceTV drama, Clemens’s television credits include Parade’s End, Watchmen, and Lie to Me. She joins a cast that also includes Michael Chernus (Patriot), Russell G. Jones (The Americans), and Olivia Lucy Phillip (Mirrors).
Tommy is part of a CBS drama pilot roster that includes legal drama Courthouse; X-Files-esque Evil; backdoor FBI spinoff FBI: Most Wanted; a procedural take on Frankenstein; Republic of Sarah, centering on a small New Hampshire town trying to become an independent nation; NSA drama Surveillance; and medical drama Under the Bridge.
