LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Louis Lombardi is getting mobbed up for TNT.

Lombardi, who played agent Edgar Stiles on "24," has signed on for a recurring role on "Lost Angels," the upcoming TNT crime drama from former "The Walking Dead" showrunner Frank Darabont.

Lombardi will play Stucky, a henchman for mob boss Mickey Cohen.

Based on the John Buntin book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City," "Lost Angels" will chronicle the decades-long feud between the LAPD, led by then-Chief William Parker, and Cohen's West Coast gang.

The cast of the drama, previously titled "L.A. Noir," also includes Jon Bernthal, Milo Ventimiglia, Thomas Jane, Simon Pegg and Edward Burns as gangster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel.

Lombardi's career includes stints on "The Sopranos," "NYPD Blue" and "Entourage." He'll also appear in the upcoming crime thriller "Runner Runner," which stars Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton.

Hollywood Reporter first reported news of Lombardi's casting.
