Russell Hornsby is booked and busy and I love it!

The incredible actor, who currently stars in Fox’s new legal drama, “Proven Innocent,” has been tapped to star in NBC’s reboot of “Bone Collector,” based on a best-selling book series and the 1999 movie starring Denzel Washington.

Russell will star as NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme, who is obsessed with taking down a serial killer known as the Bone Collector.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The series will follow Rhyme, who was seriously injured in the hunt for the Bone Collector and is called back into action when the killer re-emerges.

He forms a unique partnership with Amelia Sachs, a young beat cop who helps him hunt his nemesis while also taking on the highest-profile cases in the NYPD.

Russell Hornsby is without a doubt one of my most favorite actors in Hollywood.

I am so excited for him.
