CBS’ Rush Hour pilot has found its Carter.

Justin Hires (21 Jump Street, Stomp the Yard) has joined the one-hour pilot from CBS and Warner Bros. Television, based on New Line’s comedy of the same name. He’ll play the irreverent and wildly confident bad-boy LAPD detective originally portrayed by Chris Tucker.

Cougar Town duo Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick will write and executive-produce with original director Brett Ratner along with Arthur Sarkissian, Jeff Ingold and Jon Turtletaub.
