Ving Rhames has signed onto a role in CBS’ planned reboot of Cagney & Lacey. TV Line reports that Rhames is set to play Captain Stark of the LAPD in the series, described as “unflappable and a leader who inspires loyalty in everyone around him.”

Rhames joins Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd in the series; the two will play the titular roles originally played by Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless in the 1980s original series. The reboot will follow the same premise as the original, looking at two female police detectives in Los Angeles who came from vastly different backgrounds.
