THIS JUST IN: Soul Food grad Boris Kodjoe has landed the male lead in The Undercovers, the new NBC  husband-and-wife NBC spy drama from J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims, sources confirm.

Kodjoe will play Steven, the sharp, smart, and very attractive half of the show’s central couple.

Earlier this week, Gerald McRaney was tapped to play the CIA operative who serves as the duo’s boss.

Still to be cast: Steven’s wife, Samantha.

Thoughts about Kodjoe’s casting? Bold choice, no?
