*Charles Dutton has been cast as a recurring character on ABC’s drama pilot “Secrets & Lies.”
It centers on Ben (Ryan Phillipe), a family man who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body.
Indiana Evans will play Natalie, Ben and Christy’s (KaDee Strickland) teenage daughter, and Dutton will recur as Kevin Williams, one of the neighbors.
Steven Brand (“Magic City”) and Kate Ashfield (“Shaun Of The Dead”) will play fellow neighbors, married couple Joseph and Vanessa Turner.
*TVGuide.com is reporting that Charles S. Dutton will make a guest appearance on the CBS drama “Criminal Minds” later this season.
The three-time Emmy winner will play Tony Colt, a Philadelphia boxing trainer who learns that his favorite pupil, whom he’s mentored like a son, turns out to be the violent serial killer that brings the show’s BAU to the city.
Dutton, 60, won two guest-acting Emmys for his work on “The Practice” and “Without a Trace,” and a directing Emmy for the HBO miniseries “The Corner.” In recent years, he’s guest-starred on “CSI: NY,” “Law & Order: Los Angeles” and, perhaps most memorably, as Foreman’s dad on “House.”
“Criminal Minds’ airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS. Dutton’s episode, the 10th of the season, has not been scheduled yet.
