Scoop: Downton Abbey Hottie Replaces Ryan Phillippe in CBS Drama Pilot Golden Boy


Ryan Phillippe’s loss is Theo James‘ gain


James, an English actor who played David in Underworld: Awakening as well as Lady Mary’s Turkish one-night stand gone bad on Downton Abbey, has replaced Phillippe as the star of Greg Berlanti’s CBS drama pilot Golden Boy


He’ll play the lead role of Walter William Clark, a young, ambitious police officer who rises quickly within the department — maybe too quickly — after breaking up a major drug ring and becoming a hero. Phillippe was originally cast in the role but dropped out after getting cold feet.


James joins an ensemble that also includes True Blood‘s Kevin Alejandro and Pushing Daisies Chi McBride.


NYPD Blue vet Nicholas Wootton penned the pilot and will serve as an EP alongside Berlanti.
