So long, Slytherin: Draco Malfoy's headed to TNT.

According to Deadline, "Harry Potter" actor Tom Felton has joined TNT's "Murder In The First" as Erich Blunt, the CEO of a tech company called Applicon.

TNT's "Murder In The First" mystery pilot centers on San Francisco PD homicide detectives Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they work on a case that seems like a maze.

Although mostly a film actor, Felton had a role in last year's "Labyrinth" miniseries and is set to appear in this year's "Full Circle," alongside Minka Kelly, David Boreanaz, Kate Walsh and more.

And Felton's not the only "Harry Potter" actor trying to land on the US small screen -- Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the wizardly franchise, was cast as the lead in CBS’ comedy pilot "Super Clyde," but it didn't get picked up to series.
