Former "Lost" star Jorge Garcia has landed a role in CBS' pilot "The Ordained," EW reports. The drama -- which will follow the son of a "Kennedy-esque" political family who leaves the priesthood when his sister's life is threatened by a conspiracy -- just cast "Boardwalk Empire" alum Charlie Cox as its lead earlier in the week.

Garcia will play the lead investigator at the law at the firm Cox's character joins after leaving the clergy. THR reports Garcia's character will be "an easygoing hotdog-eating guy ... who uses unorthodox methods to get the job done and often does so with levity and humor."

Since his memorable role as Hurley on "Lost," Garcia has had roles in "Alcatraz," "Once Upon A Time," and "Californication."

Ken Jeong is planning for life after "Community." With the re-tooled NBC comedy still struggling in the ratings, Jeong has booked a role in the ABC pilot "Spy," which stars Rob Corrdry and Paget Brewster. Jeong will play "The Examiner," a former CIA agent who has started to get a little crazy in his private-sector retirement. His character is described as "erratic, incorrigible and inappropriate with his fellow agents," which sounds like a perfect role for Jeong to play. [THR]

CBS casts Rupert Grint's TV brother. "Animal Practice" alum Tyler Labine has joined "Super Clyde" as the older brother of a "meek fast food worker (Grint) who decides to become a superhero." [EW]
