*Boris Kodjoe has nabbed the lead role in NBC’s upcoming J.J. Abrams’ pilot “Undercovers,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The show, described as “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” meets “The Bourne Identity,” revolves around spouses Samantha and Steven (Kodjoe) Bloom, who work together as spies.
Last week, veteran Gerald McRaney became the first actor tapped for the project as the couple’s CIA boss. The role of Samantha is yet to be cast.
