*“CSI: Miami” alum Omar Miller is set to co-star opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in HBO’s untitled dramedy pilot Johnson executive produces with Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson, reports Deadline.
Written by Levinson, the project chronicles the lives of athletes — some retired, some still active — living in Miami.
Miller will play Charles, an affable former pro athlete who is searching for his next career.
Peter Berg is directing the pilot and will executive produce, along with Johnson’s manager Dany Garcia, who runs his production company.
Miller will next be seen in the action feature “Homefront,” written by Sylvester Stallone and directed by Gary Fleder.
