FX has finalized the cast for its upcoming drama pilot Hoke, based on the Charles Willeford novel series.

Game of Thrones alum Oona Chaplin, John Carroll Lynch, Robert Wisdom, Jordi Mollà and Tammy Blanchard are among the new additions to the cast for the show, which will star Paul Giamatti as the title character, a hardboiled homicide detective Hoke Moseley.

Chaplin will play Ellita Sanchez, a sharp young homicide detective recently promoted from dispatcher to Hoke’s (Giamatti) new partner. Lynch will play an Hoke’s former partner. Wisdom will play the head of the Miami PD Homicide Squad who has a long history with Hoke, and Mollà will play a sociopath. Meanwhile, Blanchard will play the mother of a murdered drug addict who interacts with Hoke.

Scott Frank wrote and will direct the pilot, which received an order from the network back in August.
