Milo Ventimiglia Lands 'L.A. Noir' Lead

Milo Ventimiglia has signed on for a starring role in TNT’s drama pilot L.A. Noir.

The show – based on John Buntin‘s book “L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City” – “tells the true story of a decades-long conflict between the LAPD, under the determined leadership of Police Chief William Parker, and ruthless criminal elements led by mobster Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of LA’s criminal world,” according to Deadline.

Milo, 34, will take on the role of Ned Stax, a former marine who served with Joe Teague (The Walking Dead alum Jon Bernthal) during WWII who’s now a “budding lawyer groomed to be a master fixer for the mob.”

    I’m lame and I’m going to beg you to check out my music page. What I should really do is try finding a real job, seeing I’ve been trying to get famous since the days of Myspace and it hasn’t happened.
