Adam Baldwin Sails “The Last Ship” for TNT

Adam Baldwin joins the cast of TNT’s The Last Ship, replacing Titus Welliver who was to play the lead spot. Welliver had to leave due to family illness, according to Deadline.

The Last Ship centers on the crew of a naval destroyer who, after a global catastrophe decimates the Earth’s population, are forced to confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they are among the only survivors. Baldwin will play Mike Slattery, second in command to Captain Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) onboard the USS Nathan James. He’s a fair man who cares deeply for his family. He and Tom clash at times over the best course of action.

The Last Ship is based on  the book by William Brinkley, and will be directed by Jonathan Mostow; executive producer Michael Bay.

Personally, I like all the post-apocalyptic shows that have broken over the past couple television seasons, so I’m pulling for this to go to series. What do you think?

  3. Sounds like yet another post-apocalyptic themed project on my list to watch! “Battelship” I actually enjoyed. Also, loved “The FInal Countdown”. Baldwin as a US Navy XO,,,cool! Would have been more epic if it was an aircraft carrier, but also expensie to shhot and build for a tv budget these days(re: ABC’s Super Carrier. I prety much lived on an aircraft carrier for my first 4 years in the Navy.
