Jason Lee Lands The Clive Owen Role In CBS’ American SECOND SIGHT Pilot!!
Jason Lee (“Memphis Beat,” “Up All Night”) will fill Clive Owen’s shoes in the American version of “Second Sight,” CBS’ pilot based on the BBC series that aired on PBS in 1999.
The British version followed a maverick cop with a disease that gave him visual hallucinations that helped him solve crimes.
The CBS version will transplant the character to the New Orleans Police Department.
Director Michael Cuesta (“Elementary,” “Homeland’) helms from a pilot teleplay he co-wrote with brother and big-screen “L.I.E.”/“Roadie” collaborator Gerald Cuesta.
Lee’s other credits include “Enemy of the State,” “Mumford,” “Almost Famous,” “Vanilla Sky,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and the NBC sitcom “My Name Is Earl.”
