Angels, meet Bosley.
“Transformers” franchise star Ramon Rodriguez (he plays Leo Spitz in the films), has signed on to play Bosley in the TV revival of “Charlie’s Angels,” a rep for ABC confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.
Ramon who starred as Renaldo in the cult HBO series “The Wire,” joins Minka Kelly and former “General Hospital” star Annie Ilonzeh in the remake.
Rachael Taylor (another “Transformers” alumn) is also rumored to be part of the cast as one of the three leggy ladies, as is former “Hart To Hart” star Robert Wagner, who may voice the famous Charlie.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, producers are said to be reworking Minka’s role as Marissa, who is described as a former Marine and a weapons and combat expert – along with being an obsessive neat freak.
Rachael could reportedly play Abby, who is described as young, sassy and privileged.
Her character, a skilled con artist and Krav Maga expert, has a checkered family history.
The reboot – from Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films and Sony Pictures TV – is a modern-day take on the iconic ‘70s franchise, which originally starred Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith as the first “Angels.”
The new series, set in Miami, will follow three sexy female detectives – Kate, Abby and Marisa – who work for a wealthy mystery man.
