Fantastic Four’s Ioan Gruffudd is taking the starring role in ABC’s drama pilot Forever.

Gruffudd will play New York City’s star medical examiner who is secretly immortal.  Through his investigative work with a police detective and his relationship with his best friend the show will “peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life.”

The show is from writer-producer Matt Miller (Chuck, 666 Park Avenue). In addition to playing Mr. Fantastic, Gruffudd has also starred in The CW’s Ringer and appeared in a couple episodes of Fox’s Glee last year.
