Sarah Jones tapped as J.J. Abrams' 'Alcatraz' lead
Is Sarah Jones the next Keri Russell/Anna Torv/Evangeline Lilly/Gug Mbatha-Raw? That's the boring question asked by Deadline.com after Jones was cast in the lead of FOX's JJ Abrams-produced pilot "Alcatraz."
Somewhat confusingly, Deadline says that Jones is the lead in the show, while also saying that she's a police officer in a show about FBI agents trying to solve a case involving a group of Alcatraz prisoners and guards who vanished 30 years ago and suddenly reappear.
Leaving aside that Abrams' involvement in "Alcatraz" is only as a producer and not in the advanced capacity of "Felicity"/"Lost"/"Fringe"/"
Undercovers," Jones is also less of an unknown than her listed predecessors. Just within the FOX/FX family, Jones recurred on "Sons of Anarchy," guest starred on "House" and "Lone Star" and "The Riches" and was one of the stars of the short-lived "The Wedding Bells."
