Stephen Lang To Star In ABC’s ‘Reckless’

EXCLUSIVE: Avatar‘s Stephen Lang has been tapped for a lead in ABC‘s drama pilot Reckless. Written by Chris Black and directed by Martin Campbell, the thriller centers on David (Patrick Fugit), a resourceful problem solver who, when his wife Sarah (Eloise Mumford) disappears during a violent military coup in East Myanmar, resorts to entering a world of political intrigue, dangerous alliances and high emotional stakes in order to get her out. Lang plays Sarah’s father Tom, who runs a top military manufacturing facility and uses his strong political connections to demand action when his beloved daughter disappears. Notoriously impossible to please, Tom has never fully embraced his son-in-law David as a member of the family. This marks Lang’s first series regular role since Fox’s Terra Nova. Innovative-repped Lang was among the most vocal supporters of the futuristic series, penning a passionate open letter following its cancellation by Fox.

  • To start off I love Stephen Lang…

    It baffles me that The minority lead casting are like a ratio of 2 to 25 I have to literally seen about 3 – 5 minority castings and about 32 The only pilot that has a lot of minority castings is fox’s gang related… I’m sure they’ll be gang members…. No I’m not racist and no I won’t not watch of show if theirs not minority s in it but damn this is crazy… I would like to see more

    • Maybe if you had seen those shows that starred minority leads, they wouldn’t have flopped and the networks would have made more of them.

      You voted against minority lead with your remote too many times.

  • East Myanmar? Is this going to be filmed in Thailand or something?

  • I heard Naveen Andrews will be in it, I am just over excited to hear his sweet accent on this show. Hopefully this show goes good because I will definitely continue to watch it.
