We have to admit, we’re very excited about pilot season this year. Tr3s faves like Roselyn Sanchez and Ana Ortiz have already landed themselves on potential hit shows and now Jay Hernandez may be the next to join the flock. News just broke that he’ll be working on a new series for mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
Hernandez is actually coming off of a very hot movie career. He scored big at the box office with hits like Hostel and Friday Night Lights. And just recently he proved himself to be a big screen badass with a hard-as-nails role in Takers.
And of course when Bruckheimer comes calling, how can you say no? The blockbuster producer cast Jay as the lead in Trooper, a procedural action drama set in New York.
Hernandez will be acting alongside Mira Sorvino in the pilot, which is being directed by Fright Night’s Craig Gillespie. It all sounds very exciting to us, and a smart career move for Jay. Perhaps if he plays his cards right, he can land a part in Jerry’s next Pirates movie.
