Alex Russell Joins CBS’ ‘S.W.A.T.’ Drama Pilot

Great news, guys! Alex has signed on for a series regular role for the CBS drama pilot, S.W.A.T., which was inspired by the 2003 film of the same title.

Australian actor Alex Russell has booked a series regular role opposite Shemar Moore in CBS drama pilot S.W.A.T., executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas. Written by Thomas and directed by Lin, S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Moore), torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles. Russell will play Jim Street. Cocky, living on the edge, Street has earned himself a reputation as a loose cannon with no regard for safety – he’s also the newest member of Hondo’s team.
