Casting News: ‘Training Day’ Lead

The Training Day pilot is well on its way, and producers have found its lead. His name is Justin Cornwell.

According to Deadline, the Chicago actor has been casted as Kyle Craig, the rookie cop who’s been partnered with a much more season officer.

The newcomer joins Unbreak My Heart‘s Lex Scott Davis, who will play Craig’s wife, and Bill Paxton, who will play the veteran policeman.

Based on the Antoine Fuqua flick of the same name, the CBS series will pick things up 15 years later, when Craig learns about his new job assignment and partner.

No word yet on an air date, but stay tuned.
