Jason Lee (“My Name Is Earl,” “Memphis Beat”) has been cast to star opposite Brian Dennehy and Sam Trammel in Amazon Studios’ dramedy pilot, “Cocked.”

Written by Samuel Baum and Sam Shaw, “Cocked” centers on a Washington, D.C., management consultant named Richard Paxson (Trammel), who’s estranged from his father (Dennehy) and brother (Lee), but is pulled back into the fray of his family’s gun manufacturing company after a corporate rival, run by their uncle, moves to take them over.

Lee will play Grady Paxson, Richard’s handsome yet hot-headed brother, a strong believer in the 2nd Amendment who’s been running the family’s firearms empire into the ground.

Lee is repped by CAA, manager Gay Ribisi and attorney Ken Richman.
