Faceless casting update....

FACELESS (FOX) - Newcomer Yara Martinez has joined the cast of the drama pilot, about a federal prosecutor (Sean Bean) who goes undercover as a criminal. She'll play Mari Reynosa in the 20th Century Fox Television-based hour, who's detailed in the casting notice as: "Early 20s, a college student, beautiful, wary, street smart, intelligent. She's Lucas' sister. Very much aware of her brother's criminal career and unintimdated by his weasely threats, Mari is fascinated by Eddie Pray, and seems to see something beneath his calculating surface."

In addition, character details have been confirmed for the other previously announced cast members. Reed Diamond is set as Supervising Special Agent Vincent Ambrose - "30s. An FBI agent, white collar with a steel spine, Ambrose is fed up with John Robson's apparently fruitless goose chase for the top of command of the crime chain, and is about to pull FBI aid to Robson's pet project. Attracted to Diana, Ambrose gives Robson one more chance and, in the aftermath of the attempted murder of Robson and the murder of his family, appears to have jumped on the bandwagon himself. Fully committed to following Diana's lead in Robson's pet project, Ambrose is worried about Diana's safety, and insists that she accept police protection."

Stana Katic then is playing Diana Palos - "28, her looks made even more appealing by her intelligence and tenacity, a workaholic, Diana is John Robson's Assistant Prosecutor, who likes and respects him but is growing nervous that his pet project - interconnecting the crime hierarchy of L.A. till he reaches the head honcho - is unrealistic and unachievable. Extremely capable, experienced, savvy, Diana is promoted to Federal Prosecutor after John Robson's near-murder and his subsequent disappearance. Working closely with FBI agent Ambrose, Diana has clearly taken on Robson's obsession, and is working the same suspects with the same frustrating results. Not given to paranoia, Diana reluctantly accepts Ambrose's insistence that she have police protection."

And finally, Clifton Powell's role of Langdon Fox is detailed as follows: "40s, feral, smart, wealthy, confident, with the messy haircut only serious money can buy, Langdon is a criminal attorney par excellence, specializing in working the system in favor of the criminal hierarchy of L.A. - in particular, Bailey Hughes, the owner of a huge pornography empire whose interests are well served by Langdon - who may not be working for Bailey but above him. Expert at pulling strings at all levels the criminal spectrum, Langdon handily gets both Lucas Reynosa and Bailey out of hot legal water." Kevin Alejandro also stars in the 20th Century Fox Television-based project, which comes from creator Dario Scardapane, director Joe Carnahan and fellow executive producers Daniel Rappaport, Evelyn O'Neill and Tony Krantz.
