TNT’s upcoming series “Lost Angels” has added Edward Burns to its cast.
Burns will have a recurring part as mobster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel in the show, Deadline reports. “Lost Angels” has also bumped Robert Knepper, late of The CW’s “Cult,” up to a series regular. He plays a mob lieutenant.
“Lost Angels,” based on the book “L.A. Noir” by John Buntin, will chronicle the (already well-chronicled) battle between the LAPD and the mob in the 1940s and ’50s. Frank Darabont (“The Walking Dead”) is executive producing the series, which is due to premiere next year.
The cast also includes “Walking Dead” alum Jon Bernthal as a cop, Jeremy Luke as mob boss Mickey Cohen and Neal McDonough as LAPD Chief William Parker.
