Wilmer Valderrama, 35, still best known for his portrayal of Fez in That 70s Show, now joins Stark Sands and Meagan Good in the cast of Fox's sci-fi drama pilot series Minority Report, a sequel to the Steven Spielberg-directed 2002 movie of the same name head-billed by Tom Cruise.

As gathered by Deadline, Valderrama will be playing the role of Will Blake, a new police detective at the precinct who fills in for Vega (Good) when she's out on leave, "and when Vega sizes him up, she decides she doesn't like him."

Fox's small-screen sequel is set to take place ten years after the end of the PreCrime police force that was based in Washington, D.C., and it centers on one of the three precogs who is now struggling to lead a 'normal' human life. He remains haunted by visions the future when he meets Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good), who in turn is haunted by her past, who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.

From Amblin Television, Paramount Television and the network's sibling studio 20th Century Fox Television, Max Borenstein penned the script and executive produces the pilot. Amblin's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank as executive producers too. Kevin Falls (The West Wing) will serve as showrunner.

Valderrama, Sands and Good will be joining Daniel London who will be reprising his role as Wally the Caretaker, alongside Li Jun Li and Laura Regan. Fox pilot order Minority Report is set to screen for the 2015-16 broadcast season.

Valderrama will also be seen once more as Don Carlos Madrigal on El Rey's From Dusk till Dawn: The Series which was renewed for a 13-episode second season. Like Minority Report, the series developed for TV by Robert Rodriguez is an adaptation of a cult-classic feature film. From Dusk till Dawn, the 1996 hit movie, was directed by Rodriguez from a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino and stars George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Tarantino.
