LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Cam Gigandet is going to get “Reckless” with CBS – and he’s going to do so with a very familiar face.

“Twilight” star Gigandet has been cast in the CBS legal-drama pilot “Reckless,” which is being directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who handled directing duties for the 2008 vampire smash.

The pilot, which is being written and co-executive produced by Dana Stevens (“Safe Haven”), is billed as a sultry legal show set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a Southern city attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal. Gigandet will play the city attorney.

Ian Sander and Kim Moses are executive producing the CBS Television Studios project.

Gigandet, who appeared in 15 episodes of “The O.C.,” has largely stuck to big-screen work since “Twilight,” but he did star in last year’s “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” which premiered on the National Geographic Channel.
