Character Name: Clade Charbonnet
“Orleans,” filmed entirely on location in New Orleans, focuses on the cases of Judge Luther Larry Hagman), an epicure of good times, good food, gambling and horse racing, who is as equally devoted to upholding the law, as he is to overseeing and dealing with the deeds and misdeeds of his family.
The dramatic catalyst from the past is the disappearance of Luther’ six-year-old daughter Claire, an unsolved crime which destroyed his marriage and distanced him from his remaining three children.
Luther’s oldest son Clade (Brett Cullen) is a top New Orleans Police Department detective, who finds himself fighting corruption not only on the street but within the police force itself. While Clade shares his father’s love of justice, the two men have some intimacy issues and their strong wills often clash.
Brett Cullen has named the character of “Clade” as one character he would enjoy playing again.
