Matthew Modine Signs On to TNT Pilot PROOF
Deadline reports that Matthew Modine has signed on to appear as a series regular in TNT pilot PROOF. The Supernatural medical drama will be executive produced by Kyra Sedgwick, written by Rob Bragin and directed by Alex Graves. Jennifer Beals co-stars.
PROOF will follow Dr. Kathryn Russo, (Beals), described as "a skeptical, hard-science, brilliant female surgeon with a caustic edge who has been struggling with the devastating loss of her teenage son and a growing estrangement from her surviving daughter. She is persuaded to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings."
Modine will take on the role of Ivan Turing, "a charming, eccentric, technology multi-billionaire facing a terminal cancer who is willing to apply all his resources to answering the question, is there anything beyond death?"
The actor's most well-known film roles include Private Joker in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, the title character in Alan Parker's Birdy, high school wrestler Louden Swain in Vision Quest, and oversexed Sullivan Groff on Weeds. He will soon be seen on the big screen in Altar.
