Charles Parnell (Pariah) and Christina Elmore, will join Michaela McManus, Travis Van Winkle, and Sam Spruell to co-star in Michael Bay's TNT action drama pilot The Last Ship, which is based on a 1988 post-apocalyptic fiction novel of the same name by William Brinkley.

Charles Parnell (Pariah) and Christina Elmore, will join Michaela McManusTravis Van Winkle, and Sam Spruell to co-star in Michael Bay's TNT action drama pilot The Last Ship, which is based on a 1988 post-apocalyptic fiction novel of the same name by William Brinkley.

Jonathan Mostow will direct the pilot, from a script penned by Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane.

The Last Ship tells the story of a fictional USA Navy guided missile destroyer, the USS Nathan James, on patrol in the Barents Sea (located north of Norway and Russia) during a brief, full-scale nuclear war between the USA and the then Soviet Union. The novel details the ship's ensuing search for a new home for her crew.

So, essentially, much of the world's population is destroyed, and they are some of the only survivors left.

However, I'm guessing that this is a contemporary adaptation, and the story will likely be adjusted to reflect modern times, meaning don't expect any talk of the Soviet Union, or a full scale nuclear war against the USA.

Parnell will play a character named Hugh Jeter, Command Master Chief aboard the USS Nathan James. And Elmore will play Lt. Alisha Granderson, co-steerer of the ship.

Since playing Alike's (Adepero Oduye's) father in Dee Rees' Pariah, Parnell has assumed roles in various TV series like Fringe, NCIS and The Mentalist, to name a few.

Christina Elmore, however, I couldn't find any information on. Her IMDB page is blank, and a Google search didn't reveal much. She has a website, but it doesn't show her resume. Maybe she'll read this and I'll get an email filling in the blanks. Or maybe you guys can assist...
