Pilot casting scoop: Meet the newcomer helming Fox's spy pilot


In a season filled with star-studded casting announcements, Fox has taken the road less traveled and booked a young newcomer to anchor its Untitled Karyn Usher pilot.

Usher, a co-executive producer on Bones and a former Prison Break producer, wrote the pilot and Brett Ratner will direct.
