CBS drama 'Battle Creek' adds 'Justified's Damon Herriman to cast

By Kyle Johnson,

Justified's Damon Herriman has been brought aboard for a recurring role on CBS' upcoming Vince Gilligan and David Shore drama, Battle Creek.

Herriman will play the role of Detective Niblet, who works alongside Kal Penn's Detective Funkhauser and idolizes to him. TheWrap reports that Niblet is described as both a good person and officer.

Herriman has been appearing on the FX show Justified as the not-particularly bright Dewey Crowe.

In addition to joining Penn on Battle Creek, he also will be working with 30 Rock alum Dean Winters, who was cast late last week in one of the two lead roles.

Winters will play Detective Russ Agnew, who is said to be a tough and impatient cop, who others at the police station seek to avoid working alongside.

The CBS drama comes from Breaking Bad's Gilligan and has already secured a 13-episode commitment. The series will follow Agnew and an FBI agent, a role not cast yet, who end up being partnered together as they try and keep the streets of Battle Creek, Mich. safe.
