The 'Everwood' and 'Heartland' star has been tapped to star in the pilot of 'Against the Wall.' According to Deadline Hollywood, Williams will play dad to Rachel Carpani in the pilot about a policewoman who causes a rift between her family after joining the internal affairs department.

Williams' character is described as an old-school Chicago cop who loves his only daughter, but when she joins internal affairs he feels hurt and angry.
