It has been reported that actor Thomas Dekker has signed on to star in the upcoming CBS pilot Backstrom. The pilot episode of the potential series has already got a fairly decent cast signed on for the show and the inclusion of Thomas Dekker only goes to improve that cast.
Backstrom will sign The Office star Rainn Wilson in the lead role, as Everett Backstrom, who is described as an overweight, uncouth detective. Meanwhile, according to Deadline, Thomas Dekker will appear in the pilot as Valentine, who is the underworld connection for Everett Backstrom.
Thomas Dekker has already appeared in a number of hit shows over the years, including Heroes, The Secret Circle and, what he is probably best known for, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, in which he played the character John Connor.
It has already been reported that Ringer's Kristoffer Polaha and 24's Dennis Haysbert have signed on to star in the CBS pilot Backstrom, which has been written by Bones executive producer Hart Hanson.
