The Pulp Fiction actor will appear in the upcoming third season, the official CBS Twitter has announced.
The post reads: "H50 CASTING NEWS! Ving Rhames is going toe-to-toe with Danno (Scott Caan) this fall & it's going to get bloody..."
53-year-old Rhames previously starred in short-lived Starz drama Gravity and also played the title role in a 2005 Kojak reboot, but is best known for his film credits, including the Mission: Impossible movie franchise and 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake.
He is also attached to forthcoming TNT medical drama Monday Mornings - the series, which also stars Jamie Bamber and Alfred Molina, will air in summer 2013.
