Mykelti Williamson Enlists in FOX'S Wild Blue

To say Mykelti Williamson (Limehouse, FX's Justified) is a busy guy is an understatement.  The respected actor/director has just signed on to Fox’s exciting new drama pilot "The Wild Blue" from Justified's executive producer, Taylor Elmore and Graham Yost, directed by Michael Dinner.  "The Wild Blue” will center on the working men and women on board a U.S. aircraft carrier equipped with a 500- foot landing strip, a nuclear reactor and 6,000 people on board.  Williamson plays Master Chief Donald Bowman, the senior enlisted man on board ship and direct liaison between the officers (upstairs) and the enlisted (downstairs).  The multi-talented actor can be counted on, not only to bring passion to his roles, but also to show the idiosyncrasies of the characters he portrays.  Known for his extensive movie and television work which includes, HeatCon AirTwist Of FaithAliLucky Number SlevinATL and the beloved role of Bubba in the Oscar winning movie, Forrest Gump opposite Tom Hanks.  As well as The FugitiveThe Good Wife24, and CSI NY to name a few.
