In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Delroy Lindo is going to play the lead role on Fox's Ride-Along.

The show follows Jarek (Jason Clarke), a tough, cowboy cop, and Teresa (Jennifer Beals), Chicago's first female police chief, who want to clean up the streets.

Lindo is going to play "a longtime building magnate-turned-politician who is loved by his constituents, but there have always been whispers about possible ties to organized crime." Jarek and Teresa are convinced he's dirty.
