“Platinum” star Steven Pasquale has joined the cast of the FX drama pilot “Rescue Me” from Denis Leary and Jim Serpico.
Pasquale will play Sean Murphy, the handsome but naive young firefighter in the hourlong show centered on a group of New York firefighters post-Sept. 11.
Leary, Serpico and Peter Tolan (“The Job”) are exec producers in association with Sony Pictures TV. Project begins production soon in Gotham.
Pasquale is repped by WMA and Brookside Artist Management.
