    William Fichtner to lead TNT's 'Night'

    Sherry Stringfield also joins drama pilot cast

    William Fichtner has been tapped as the lead in TNT's drama pilot "Night and Day."

    Also cast in the project is "ER" alumna Sherry Stringfield.

    Written and executive produced by "24" co-creator Joel Surnow and Todd Robinson, "Night" is a fast-paced, gritty drama about the life of Dan Hollister (Fichtner), an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms who works for a special threat intervention task force.

    Stringfield will play Dan's wife and emotional anchor Elizabeth, a stay-at-home mom.

    For Fichtner, "Night" is in second position to Fox's "Prison Break," where he plays FBI Agent Alexander Mahone. Surnow's relationship with 20th TV, which produces "24" and "Prison," helped Fichtner land the "Night" role.

    On "Prison," Fichtner doesn't have a deal beyond this season. For now, there are no plans to kill off Mahone, though the series is known for quickly knocking off its characters.
