Stephen Lang To Star In ABC’s ‘Reckless’

EXCLUSIVE: Avatar‘s Stephen Lang has been tapped for a lead in ABC‘s drama pilot Reckless. Written by Chris Black and directed by Martin Campbell, the thriller centers on David (Patrick Fugit), a resourceful problem solver who, when his wife Sarah (Eloise Mumford) disappears during a violent military coup in East Myanmar, resorts to entering a world of political intrigue, dangerous alliances and high emotional stakes in order to get her out. Lang plays Sarah’s father Tom, who runs a top military manufacturing facility and uses his strong political connections to demand action when his beloved daughter disappears. Notoriously impossible to please, Tom has never fully embraced his son-in-law David as a member of the family. This marks Lang’s first series regular role since Fox’s Terra Nova. Innovative-repped Lang was among the most vocal supporters of the futuristic series, penning a passionate open letter following its cancellation by Fox.
