Irish actors Jason O’Mara and Colm Meaney have been lined up to play the lead roles in the US version of hit BBC drama Life on Mars.
O’Mara will take John Simm’s role as time-travelling police officer Sam Tyler in the ABC network’s pilot.
Meaney is reported to be in talks to star as detective Gene Hunt, played by Philip Glenister in the BBC version.
Life on Mars is a great BBC show, I’m glad they’re setting up for a US version – hope they can make it without ruining it.
