They just can't quit each other. Cam Gigandet will re-team with "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke on a new CBS series called “Reckless.” After directing Cam to greatness in the vampire romance and the upcoming flick “Plush,” she's helming the show’s pilot.
The series is set in Charleston, South Carolina, according to Deadline, and will revolve around Cam’s attorney character, his attraction to a "Yankee" lawyer and a chief of police who will be played by a dude who used to mingle with Don Draper (“Mad Men” actor Michael Gladis). Apparently sex scandals are involved in a major way, so how can you go wrong? The film will also take some cues from the classic 1981 noir “Body Heat.” We reiterate, how can you go wrong?
While Cam has made a name for himself on the big screen (thanks to roles in “Easy A,” “Burlesque” and “The Roommate,” among others), he has a history on the small screen as well. He’s had recurring roles on shows like “The Young and the Restless,” as well as “Jack & Bobby.” But to us he will always be Volchok, the man who (Spoiler Alert!) killed Marissa Cooper on “The O.C.” Well, it seems his latest TV project plants him firmly on the other side of the law.
