CBS' 'Shark' adds two new actors
Kevin Pollak and Kevin Alejandro are joining the cast of CBS' sophomore legal drama "Shark."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pollak and Alejandro will have key recurring roles when "Shark" kicks off its second season, moving to a new Sunday night 10 p.m. time slot.
Pollak will play Lloyd Cutler, new Los Angeles district attorney. The presence of a new district attorney means that James Woods' Stark has a new boss, and it also means that former district attorney Jessica Devlin (Jeri Ryan) will join Stark's team.
Never miss a local story.
Alejandro will play William Lyons, another new member of Stark's team, described in the trade paper as "a street-smart, tough prosecutor specializing in organized crime."
Recent credits for Pollak ("A Few Good Men") include Sci Fi's "The Lost Room" and "The Whole Ten Yards."
The extremely busy Alejandro was a regular last season on Fox's "Drive" and Showtime's "Sleeper Cell: American Terror." He also has had a recurring role as Santos on ABC's "Ugly Betty."
