After plucking Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn from The Walking Dead, Frank Darabont is looking to reunite with another of his former leading men. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Thomas Jane is in talks to play mobster Bugsy Siegel in the period crime drama, a role that isn't in the pilot but will figure heavily into the TNT series if it's picked up. Well, Jane does have a reputation for packing heat on cable.
