Nick Zano Joins Fox’s ‘Minority Report’

Nick Zano has joined the cast of Fox’s “Minority Report” alongside Stark Sands and Meagan Good, Variety has confirmed.

Sands was originally cast in the dual roles of identical twins Dash and Arthur, both of whom receive precognitive visions that enable them to see crimes before they’re committed.

Sands will retain the lead role of Dash, who selflessly and heroically tries to stop the future murders he sees in his visions, while Zano will take over the role of Arthur, meaning that the twins will be portrayed as fraternal instead of identical.

Arthur is described as having a hard shell, borne of years of difficult experience in the outside world that Dash avoided. He’s confident and self-assured, even Machiavellian in his interaction with the world that once exploited him, using his gift to consolidate personal wealth and power in the building of an empire. Stronger together as a complete unit, they help one another from time to time, but in the long run both are bad for each other’s business.

Zano is best known for his comedic roles in half-hour laffers “One Big Happy,” “Happy Endings” and “2 Broke Girls,” and is currently writing a comedy pilot for Warner Bros. Television.

Minority Report,” based on the 2002 Steven Spielberg film of the same name, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Paramount Television, and Amblin Television. Executive producer Max Borenstein wrote and developed the series and Kevin Falls, Spielberg, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey serve as executive producers. Mark Mylod directed the pilot and also exec produces the series.

Zano is repped by UTA and John Carrabino.

“Minority Report” premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
