Handley cast in CBS’ Las Vegas pilot

Project centers on Ralph Lamb, rodeo cowboy turned sheriff

Taylor Handley has been cast as Dennis Quaid’s son on CBS’ untitled Ralph Lamb-themed pilot that takes place in 1960’s Las Vegas.

Handley will play Dixon, the family playboy and a reckless young man who is charming but troublesome.

Project, from CBS Television Studios, was written Nicholas Pileggi (“GoodFellas”) and Greg Walker, who exec produce with Cathy Konrad and Arthur Sarkissian. James Mangold (“Walk the Line”) is directing the pilot and will also exec produce.

Quaid is playing Lamb, a rodeo cowboy who became the Las Vegas sheriff. Michael Chiklis, who most recently came off ABC’s “No Ordinary Family,” is set to co-star as a Chicago mob fixer who has an antagonistic relationship with Lamb.

Handley previously starred in Kevin Williamson’s CW drama “Hidden Palms” and recently wrapped the lead in Curtis Hanson’s bigscreen pic “Of Men and Mavericks.”

He’s repped by Booh Schut Co. and Paradigm.
