Finn Jones Exits 'Prodigal Son' Pilot, Replaced by Tom Payne

The lead role in the upcoming Fox pilot Prodigal Son has been recast following the show’s initial table read.

Iron Fist‘s Finn Jones was set to play the role of criminal psychologist Malcolm Bright, but producers decided to recast the role as a creative decision, according to TVLine.

The Walking Dead‘s Tom Payne has landed the role. The character is “a criminal psychologist with specific insight into how murderers operate because his dad (played by Michael Sheen) is a notorious serial killer known as ‘The Surgeon.’”

Scandal‘s Bellamy Young will play the character’s “sarcastic and manipulative mother.”

Greg Berlanti is the executive producer on the project.
