Rome's McKidd lands NBC pilot

Kevin McKidd, who plays Roman centurion Lucius Vorenus on the HBO drama Rome, will step into NBC's time-travel pilot Journeyman.

The NBC series follows a man who can travel back in time to "fix" people's lives. Sometimes, he inadvertently alters the future.

On Rome, McKidd's Vorenus is a moral soldier who falls from grace after the death of Caesar. The HBO/BBC series ends its run at the conclusion of the current season.

McKidd will be seen in the upcoming films Hannibal Rising and The Last Legion. He has appeared in the 1996 cult film Trainspotting and the werewolf actioner Dog Soldiers.
