*Actor Lennie James will star in a recurring role on the HBO original series “Hung,” per the “Hollywood Reporter.”

The veteran of CBS’ “Jericho” will play a potential love interest to accidental pimp Tanya (Jane Adams).

The series, which debuted last June, stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, a struggling suburban Detroit high school basketball coach who resorts to male prostitution to make ends meet.

James next appears on the big screen in Paul Haggis’ “The Next Three Days.”
