by at . Comments

Lost Angels, the wildly anticipated new TNT drama from Frank Darabont, has added two big names as series regulars:

  1. Ed Burns will come on board as notorious real-life mobster Bugsy Sigel, a criminal leader in Los Angeles in the 1930s and 1940s who served as the main lieutenant for gangster Mickey Cohen, who will be played on the series by Jeremy Luke.
  2. Robert Knepper will portray Sid Rothman, another, lower down mobster working for Cohen.

Lost Angels - based on the book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City" by John Buntin - will chronicle the turmoil surrounding the LAPD and the illegal activities of Cohen and other mobsters back in the day.

It will premiere in the summer of 2014 and also star Jon Bernthal, Neal McDonough and Milo Ventimiglia.
