Jason Lee Finds a New TV Gig in Second Sight

Jason Lee may have found a long-term distraction from all the chipmunk movies. He's set to star in CBS's crime pilot Second Sight, where he'll play a New Orleans detective with "an ocular disorder which causes him to have horrifying and visually stimulating anxiety dreams and hallucinations." Since My Name Is Earl, Lee has done two seasons of TNT's ill-fated Memphis Beat and appeared in a handful of Up All Night episodes. Frequent Homeland director Michael Cuesta wrote Second Sight with his brother Gerald Cuesta.
