Linus RoacheThe cast has been announced for 'Downton Abbey' creator Julian Fellowes's new miniseries, 'Titanic.'

Linus Roache, last seen on U.S. television screens playing Exec A.D.A. Michael Cutter in the final season of 'Law & Order,' has signed on for a lead role in the four-part production.

He'll be joined onboard the doomed liner by fellow Brits and 'Masterpiece Theatre' vets Geraldine Somerville ('Gosford Park,' the 'Harry Potter' movies), Toby Jones ('Captain America,' 'Elizabeth I'), Celia Imrie ('Cranford,' 'Bridget Jones'), James Wilby ('Gosford Park') and Steven Waddington ('The Tudors,' 'Sleepy Hollow').

The miniseries will air in 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of 'The Titanic' on her maiden voyage across the Atlanic.

Production is slated to begin later this month in Hungary, and producer Nigel Stafford Clark promises that Fellowes's version of the tragedy will be "bold, fresh and gripping, with all the human detail that television does so well. We hope it will be a fitting tribute to the events of that night."
