Kodjoe Lands Lead Role in Abrams’ Undercovers


Boris Kodjoe (upcoming Resident Evil: Afterlife) has landed the male lead in J.J. Abrams’ pilot for NBC “Undercovers,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Undercovers,” described as a mix between Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Bourne Identity, revolves around spouses Samantha and Steven (Kodjoe) Bloom, who work together as spies.

The previously-announced Gerald McRaney will play the couple’s CIA boss. The role of Samantha is yet to be cast.

Abrams is considering directing the Warner Bros. TV-produced pilot, which he co-wrote with Josh Reims.
