Outstanding character actor Delroy Lindo has been cast to co-star in NBC’s drama pilot Believe, from the pen of J.J. Abrams.
The drama revolves around a young girl in possession of a great gift/powers — which will come into their own in seven years — and the man who is sprung from prison (Savages‘ Jake McLaughlin) to protect her from those trying to hunt her down.
Lindo will play Winter, a kind man with an honorable agenda posing as a priest who might not be what he seems.
Lindo’s last TV series was The Chicago Code on Fox. Lindo’s film credits include The Cider House Rules and Get Shorty, earning ensemble SAG Award nominations for both.
