The project, set in Charleston, South Carolina, centers on Jamie (portrayed by Anna Wood), a beautiful Yankee litigator, and Roy (Cam Gigandet), a city attorney from the South, who struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.
Rodriguez will portray Preston, a well-respected police detective who works in the Charleston Police Department alongside Trey (Shawn Hatosy).
Should the project get a series order, it would mark the Magic Mike star’s return to CBS following the cancellation of CSI: Miami, where he portrayed Detective Eric Delko.
Adam Rodriguez is ready to help remake an iconic ‘80s classic…
The 37-year-old Puerto Rican/Cuban American actor and former CSI: Miami star has joined the cast of the remake of the 1986 romantic dramedy About Last Night, which originally starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore.
The film follows two singletons (played by Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant in the redo) as they attempt to turn a one night stand into a possible relationship.
The former CSI: Miami star will appear on a recurring basis. Rodriguez could appear in as many as four of the first 13 episodes.
Carter Bays, who created The Goodwin Games with fellow How I Met Your Mother executive producer Craig Thomas, describes Ivan via email as “a scrawny, insecure nebbish with crippling allergies,” adding: “Obviously Adam Rodriguez was the first person we thought of!”
The Goodwin Games, which centers on three siblings who stand to inherit millions if they can complete the crazy challenges in their deceased father’s will, also stars Scott Foley and T.J. Miller.
The Goodwin Games is slated to debut in early 2013.
