Add two more notable names to CBS’ The Ordained pilot.

Veteran actor Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and starlet Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) have joined the show. The Ordained stars Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as Tom, the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer in a bid to prevent his politician sister from being assassinated.

Neill will play Tom’s father, who’s often called “The Governor” (no eye patch, presumably) while Chriqui plays Tom’s literal girl next door.
