Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd) has signed on to play the lead role in Bad Robot’s upcoming futuristic buddy cop show Human.

Human is executive produced by Fringe show-runner J.H. Wyman and JJ Abrams. The show, set in the near future, features human cops partnered with human-like androids.

Urban plays John Kennex, a cop who was critically injured during a mission and has been left emotionally wounded by the experience.

It was recently announced that Michael Ealy will play Dorian, Kennex’s robot partner.

Other recent casting additions include Minka Kelly, Michael Irby, Mackenzie Crook and Lili Taylor.

More as we have it.
