A name that hasn't come up very often on this blog, Mykelti Williamson (FX's Justified) has booked a role on Fox’s drama pilot The Wild Blue, written by Taylor Elmore and directed by Michael Dinner.

Williamson joins the already-cast Alano Miller in the drama pilot from Justified executive producer Elmore - which centers on the working men and women on board a U.S. aircraft carrier, equipped with a 500-foot landing strip, a nuclear reactor and 6,000 people on board.

Williamson will play a Master Chief Donald Bowman, described as a senior enlisted man on the ship and the direct liaison between the officers (upstairs) and the enlisted (downstairs).

Miller will play Joaquin Tate, described as a recently promoted NCO (non-commissioned officer) whose position as someone in charge, but with little power and control in comparison to the officers on board, only adds to the chip already on his shoulder. And being superior in rank to his best friend, only leads to further tension between the two over time.

The Wild Blue is executive produced by Graham Yost, Mark Johnson, and Michael Dinner.
