According to Variety, Ving Rhames will star in the CW's untitled Aquaman project.

Aquaman would see Rhames returning to TV after his last skein, "Kojak," had a brief USA Network revival.

Rhames will play McCaffery, a lighthouse keeper who serves as mentor to series lead A.C. Curry (played by Will Toale) in the Warner Bros. TV project. Denise Quinones has joined the cast as Navy fighter pilot Rachel Starling, a potential love interest for Curry.

Rhames next will be seen in the feature Mission: Impossible 3. He also was in Dawn of the Dead and the first two Mission: Impossible features.
