William Fichtner is about to join the ATF with his new project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fichtner has been cast in the lead role for the TNT pilot, Night and Day. The new pilot will center on Fichtner’s Dan Hollister character, an Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agent who works for a special task force.
24 co-creator Joel Surnow and Todd Robinson co-wrote the script and will executive produce the pilot. Sherry Stringfield has also been cast in the pilot as Hollister’s wife and stay-at-home mom, Elizabeth.
Fichtner doesn’t have a deal in place for Prison Break beyond this season, but it isn’t known if there are plans to kill off his character, FBI agent Alexander Mahone.
