David Boreanaz Replaces Jim Caviezel in CBS’s Navy SEAL Pilot
Bones star David Boreanaz is replacing Jim Caviezel in the leading role for CBS’s upcoming Navy SEAL pilot. Caviezel is known for starring in the CBS crime drama series Pilot of Interest. Apparently Caviezel left the project due to “creative differences” with the pilot’s producer from CBS TV Studios.
Boreanaz will also produce alongside Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Chris Chulack, who will executive produce. The pilot was written by Ben Carell and will be directed by Chulack. The show follows the lives of the elite Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask.
Boreanaz will play Jason, the respected, committed leader of his assault team who’s been through over a dozen deployments, with scans inside and out. He’s joined alongside Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., A.J Buckley, Toni Trucks and Jessica Pare.
BONES 12th and final season ends on March 28.
