It looks like Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) could be getting a new gig.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Jesse is in negotiations to join the NBC/Universal Media Studios' new series 'The Philanthropist'. The show will follow billionaire Teddy Rist (played by James Purefoy) who uses his wealth and power to help people around the world. It is planned that Martin would play Philip Maidstone, Teddy's business partner and lifelong friend. Production will be based in London.
